Bill 10 now allows a single Minister to unilaterally make new laws and create new offences for the populace without consultation with the Legislative Assembly. Bill 10 also raises maximum individual penalties for violating the Public Health Act to the eye-watering sum of $500,000. The Public Health Act amendments extend the power of Ministers to make new law for a period of up to 270 days, or even longer.

The Alberta Government claims that it needs extra flexibility to respond to the coronavirus. It also has denied that Bill 10 gives any new powers to create law. In response to concerns, the government initially claimed the changes were minor and technical in nature.

Concerned Albertans wrote scores of letters to various UCP MLAs, expressing their objection to the government overriding the principles of democracy and constitutionalism. Various MLAs responded with a form letter which claimed that Bill 10 does not create new powers for politicians to implement any law that they choose during an emergency, as some critics have claimed.

The assertion from the MLAs has been shown to be demonstrably false, as a new Ministerial Order does precisely that. Minister Shandro has utilized Bill 10 to unilaterally create new law by himself, bypassing the Legislature. Bill 10 added section 52.1(3) to the Public Health Act, which allows the Health Minister to make an order without consultation. This provision was utilized to amend the Public Health Act so that information obtained by the Chief Medical Officer can be disclosed to any police service, as police officers need to know whether an individual has tested positive for COVID-19 to allow police the ability to comply with quarantine orders.

However, the newly added provision is poorly worded and drafted broadly enough to allow for the blanket release to police of the records of all Albertans who have tested positive for COVID-19, and perhaps even the medical records of those who have not.

Minister Shandros new law contains no safeguards outlining the use, storage and retention of the personal data by police. It is unclear why the names of people who once tested positive for the virus and have recovered should be conveyed to police, or how long this information will remain in the polices possession. There are no limitations on how the police may use this private and personal information. There is no clause that mandates that the information will be destroyed at a later date. Providing the personal information of patients to police so that it can be accessed at the polices discretion is in effect a warrantless search without judicial checks and balances, and an alarming breach of privacy rights.

Justice Centre President John Carpay characterizes Bill 10 as a betrayal of the electorate and of the rule of law. He notes that Bill 10 allows a single politician to behave as though he or she has the power of a legislative majority to make laws for millions. This is an affront to democracy and constitutionalism.

Seems both conservatives and liberals follow the exact same script. Ford and Legault are in lockstep with Trudeau while the federal opposition parties are on the "shut up and do nothing" plan.
