Dr. Deena Hinsha says there are 4.4 million Albertans working through an incredibly complex health crisis. Adding while it’s understandable people are angry, she adds they must channel that energy into helping the community at large.

“It’s critical all of us think about how we can support our communities, how we can work better together, and focus on the things that unite us, which are much more plentiful than the things that divide us,” she says.

“It’s really important we look to respectful dialogue across our differences to get through this next set of difficult months.”

Hinshaw adds the individuals who are choosing to protest do not speak for the majority of Albertans.
