EDMONTON — The Venezuelan woman who believes she was used as part of Jason Kenney's argument not to lockdown restaurants in the province remembers her encounter with the premier as less dramatic than he suggested.

Carolina De La Torre says Kenney got her central feelings correct, but she said she did not break down into tears the way Kenney recalled.

"No crying," the 57-year-old woman said with a laugh during a phone interview Thursday.

She also said it was Kenney who approached her Calgary food court booth called Arepas Ranch for lunch in October, not the other way around as the premier told it.

Migrants are crossing English Channel in record numbers this year — to a mixed reception

  Migrants are crossing English Channel in record numbers this year — to a mixed reception More than 8,000 people have arrived on U.K. shores this year, crossing the English Channel by boat — four times the number in 2019, when about 10 people died. The increased numbers have created issues for housing while the migrants wait for their asylum claims to be processed. Some are now being housed in former military barracks, including the Napier Barracks in Folkestone, a town of about 46,000 people. The barracks were home to Canadian troops during the First World War, where soldiers were staged before heading off to fight on the Western Front.

After weeks of mounting COVID-19 cases, as more than 1,000 new cases and 16 deaths were reported on Tuesday, Kenney announced new rules that included making indoor private social events illegal.

During the news conference, Kenney gave an example of how much a lockdown would hurt businesses by telling the story of a Venezuelan refugee he met.

"A couple of weeks ago, I was in my constituency, at a little food court thing and a new Albertan, a refugee from Venezuela socialism, came up to me," Kenney said.

"She had just opened a little food kiosk, she recognized me, she came up to me, and she broke down in tears in front of me saying, 'sir, I put my entire life savings as a refugee into this business, we're struggling to pay the bills, if you shut me down, I'm going to lose it all, everything, and I'll be in abject poverty.'"

Lack of Canadian vaccine production means others could get inoculations first: PM

  Lack of Canadian vaccine production means others could get inoculations first: PM OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sought to reassure Canadians on Tuesday that COVID-19 vaccines will start to arrive in the coming months even as he acknowledged that other nations are likely to start inoculating their citizens first. "One of the things to remember is Canada no longer has any domestic production capacity for vaccines," Trudeau said during his regular COVID-19 news conference outside his home in Ottawa.

"For some, perhaps, it is a little bit too easy to say just flick a switch. Shut them down," Kenney said.

"I would ask people who have people who have the certainty of a pay cheque to think for a moment about those individuals whose entire life savings are tied up in businesses."

De La Torre and her husband run the booth, which is located a 10-minute drive from Kenney's constituency office.

Born in Venezuela, De La Torre said she and her husband came to Canada with refugee status in 1989 when it became no longer safe to live there. They settled in Montreal for 25 years before they packed their bags and moved to Calgary to follow their daughter who was starting school at the University of Alberta.

They have been living in Alberta for seven years and have been running Arepas Ranch for two years. They are known for making specialty arepas, which is a cornmeal patty, filled with a choice of shredded beef, chicken salad, black beans, ham, cheese, or other vegan and veggie options.

David Staples: Kenney's lockdown is severe but holds out hope for businesses to survive

  David Staples: Kenney's lockdown is severe but holds out hope for businesses to survive When asked about President Donald Trump's comments about Canadian lumber prices, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said at a town hall meeting in B.C. on Wednesday that he continues to talk with the president about "challenges" around softwood lumber, but that he tries "not to weigh in on the various things that he says."

My Mum said she liked them, but I think she was just being kind.

At first, De La Torre said she didn't recognize Kenney when he stopped to order food and then someone from another booth told her it was the premier.

De La Torre doesn't recall exactly what Kenney ordered, but she remembers the "very short" conversation they had when he came back to let them know the meal was "fantastico." She posted a picture of the premier on her Instagram.

De La Torre said Kenney got her feelings right.

She said it’s true that the couple put their money into the business and closing the economy would be bad for them. But she understands it’s about people’s health, which is what she told Kenney.

"What I said is, 'There has to be a balance between the economy and the health. There is not only me in this food court, we are more than 40 small businesses in the court that need to be open to make a way of life'."

No one from Kenney's office immediately responded to a request for comment.

De La Torre said when she heard Kenney mentioned her during a news conference, she was at first surprised.

But now, "I didn't know what to think about it," she said.

"I don't know. What can I say? It's OK."

Alberta projects COVID hospitalizations could soon soar to 775, with 161 in ICU .
EDMONTON — Alberta Health projections released by the Opposition NDP predict COVID-19 hospitalization rates could soar to 775 by mid-December and the number of intensive care patients could reach 161. NDP Leader Rachel Notley says the numbers suggest the United Conservative government waited too long to act then introduced ineffective half measures to combat the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus. “Our province is reporting the highest rate of COVID in the country,” Notley told Premier Jason Kenney during question period Tuesday. “The models showed you a second wave was coming.
