Two other Republican House members who came in contact with Lewis were told to self quarantine for 14 days, but Democratic lawmakers, some of whom also had contact with Lewis or with the two other Republicans before May 20, say they first learned of the positive test result on Wednesday. Respond to China Hong Kong power grab?China legislature on Thursday approved a controversial national security law that gives the mainland government new powers to police subversion and foreign intervention in Hong Kong. Critics of the new law say it a violation of the “one country, two systems” agreement that has granted Hong Kong certain levels of autonomy like its own police force and judicial system since the island became part of China in 1997 after more than a century of British rule.

But Brexit has also led to Megxit Meghan Markle and her boy toy Prince Harry who are apparently holed up in a Vancouver Island mansion plan to split from the Royal Family.Then along came Wexit folks from Alberta and Saskatchewan mad enough to consider severing from Canada after the re election of Justin Trudeau oil patch hating Liberals in the fall national vote.Which pretty well died when Alberta Premier Jason Kenney foolishly announced he was a and signaled to Justin he had committed the political equivalent of rolling over like a hog in a ditch.Except it ain over yet.Now along comes Pexit which spilled out on the pages of a survey of lake users recently released by the Lake Wabamun Watershed Management Council.The big cottage lake west of town has been roiled with controversy for many years going back to the cottagers internal battles over lake levels, water vegetation growth, TransAlta Utilities power plants, Canadian National Railways oil spill, last summer blue green algae bloom, and, of course, the polluting/shore line destruction antics of the cottage owners themselves.The watershed council readily admits the poll was scientific heavily weighted toward property owners and admitted the report major was the lack of other Wabamun users taking it. Like me.What most amazing is that 58 per cent of the Wabamun users go to the lake to fish.And while 75 per cent indicated they are boaters, there has to be a lot of spill over between boating and angling.Here where the Pexit part kicks in.While a satisfying 90 per cent rated the overall quality of Wab either or very good when it came to the state of the angling and specifically Wabamun pike population the powers that be got an earful.The negative comments were many but this one more or less sums it up:keep fish, overrun with walleye, pike, whitefish and perch populations have diminished due to the walleye population. Not sure if the re introduction of a general harvest is the solution to Lake Wabamun angling woes, though.Pexit the demise of Wabamun pike population which attained status between the harvest moratorium following the CN toxic oil spill and the introduction of several million walleye fry was clearly a burning political issue in the council survey.Still when my ice angling buddy Emmerson and I rolled down the Wabamun village boat ramp on a weekday there were already a half dozen tents on the Home Bay ice surface.We drove out as far as the surface slush would allow, erected the tent, augered holes including one for the Aqua Vu underwater camera then settled down in our chairs to watch the walleye come, go and hopefully eat our frozen shiner tipped chartreuse jigs..
