Well...Alberta has performed pretty terribly and Ontario has been mediocre at best to this point. I think you'll see some correlation there overall.
has Alberta actually been that much worse than Ontario though? I mean I know Kenney has likely been more negligent than Dougie, just unsure how the results have played out

I would have to look at the numbers again, but yes

At their peaks, Alberta was definitely running higher per capita case counts than Ontario. I think there were even a couple days where even in raw numbers Alberta was ahead for new cases, despite having like 1/3 or 1/4 of the population.

Alberta has seen better numbers since the post-Christmas lockdowns, so I think we might be doing a little better per capita now than Ontario is.

At the peak, Alberta hit about 40 cases/100k people, whereas Ontario never really cracked 25 in any 7-day average. Alberta has gotten down below 10/100k now, whereas Ontario is still around 12. Quebec peaked at 30, and is now at about 15. None of the maritimes have even reached 5/100k, and have barely peaked above 3/100k.

And in general, population density is a major exasperator. Alberta has nothing to compare to the golden horseshoe.

Even their cities aren't particularly dense. Calgary has about 1/3rd the population density of Toronto. Edmonton closer to 1/4. Less than half of Vancouver, Montreal.

The decision to build a subway to Scarborough isn’t an endless well of stupidity. There should be dozens of additional stops located throughout every area of the city, extending outwards to the surrounding outlying built-up regions. The stupidity lies in the myriad of factors that make it so cost prohibitive compared to every other developed nation. There’s no reason why Toronto shouldn’t have an extremely well-connected, high-density underground network like you find in all other global cities like London, New York, Paris, Tokyo, etc.

(For the record, I understand what you’re saying and would have probably opted for the LRT option myself, but in an ideal world you have an extremely dense underground network throughout the entirety of the city connecting all major points, landmarks, and business districts together).
