'Amber Alert' Is Trending On Twitter As Albertans Wonder Why Jason Kenney Is Ghosting Them

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Albertans are wondering where their premier, Jason Kenney has gone. It sounds like Albertans just aren't used to being ghosted. 

On Monday, November 24 the hashtag #WhereIsKenney was trending in Canada, now, a day later, "Amber Alert" is trending and a facetious search for the 52-year-old politician is underway. Clearly, people just can't track the guy down. 

The whole thing started from a satirical article by The Beaverton titled "Amber Alert Issued For 52-year-old Premier." The internet did what it does best and absolutely ran with it.

Some of the tweets hypothesize about where Kenney has been. You'll see some assuming he's contracted COVID-19 while others say he's gone south for the winter. One even says "he should have left a note." 

Naturally, there are some people wondering if this is a legitimate amber alert and we're here to tell you that no, it is not in fact real. 

Though, as COVID-19 cases climb in the province, reporting more daily cases than the rest of Canada, the premier has not addressed the public in 10 days. 

Dr. Deena Hinshaw said in a news conference that the province will be making an announcement on Tuesday.

She indicated that new restrictions may be on the way.
