Lets ask this guy/gal if he's ever been to Van, Sea, "Peg, Tor, Cgy, Omaha, San Fran.......etc. Let me guess, this person probably doesn't have a passport and lives in her/his moms's basement........Kinda sorta, but I am not sure that the number of Bay stores is a measure of success these days.
Regardless, they are not wrong about what they saw/felt.

ALBERTA ANNOUNCES $8M FOR POLICE, CRISIS TEAMSOn Tuesday, Alberta also announced an investment of almost $8 million over three years to increase the number of Police and Crisis Teams (PACT) in Calgary and Edmonton.
The PACT program pairs police constables with mental health therapists from Alberta Health Services (AHS) to respond to 911 calls where there is a mental health concern.
Police and mental health therapists then work together to assess the client’s mental health challenge and determine what support is required to keep the individual and the community safe.
Through the funding, Alberta will add 12 new PACT teams in each city, doubling the number in Calgary from 12 to 24, and tripling them in Edmonton, where they will grow to 18.
