Dear Premier Kenney,

We are writing to inform you that we will no longer be following the restriction that prevents us from seeing our family and having them in our home. While we have never agreed with this restriction (nor some others) we have followed and obeyed. We will no longer do that.

We have a very young child who is facing some big health challenges. We need the love and support of our family right now, as we are sure many others do. And we need it in tangible, in-person ways. We will no longer be denied access to our own family. Issue us a fine if you must but we will no longer refrain from having them in our home. And we will not sneak them in and out as if we are living in fear of our own government, we will have them come and go openly.

We don't believe the government should ever, regardless of circumstances, have the power to place restrictions like this. In your efforts to do something for the collective good you have forgotten, or ignored, that we are a province made up of individuals, individuals that each have needs and rights. You have placed this 'collective good' above many of our needs, and you call us selfish if we try to fight for the freedom to meet these needs.

We plead with you to lift restrictions regarding having family and friends in our homes. We do not wish to argue for or against the seriousness of the Corona virus because the reasoning for the restrictions is irrelevant. We argue rather, that in a free and Democratic country the government you lead is overstepping. Regardless of the situation, no government should be allowed to place sweeping restrictions like this. You are setting a dangerous precedent here.

There are other restrictions that we also feel are a drastic over step, but for now we are just asking this: please immediately lift the restrictions that prevent our family and friends from coming into our homes.

Jessica & Jordan Hodges
