One Ring to Bring Them All

Perhaps the key to understanding how Alberta Premier Notley went from this:
"NDP calling for youth centre investigation
By Gwendolyn Richards
The Calgary Herald
The provincial NDP's children and youth services critic is calling for an investigation into an addictions recovery centre in Calgary following reports some teens were victims of abuse.
Edmonton-Strathcona MLA Rachel Notley made the call for the investigation following question period Tuesday, where the issue was raised...
Notley said the government has an obligation to examine the allegations.
Also troubling, said Notley, is that peers are serving as counsellors in the facility despite having no training and without supervision."

to this:

"Thank you for your email regarding your experience with the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC).

I am very sorry to hear about your negative experiences with AARC, and that they have sued your partner and others who appeared on CBC’s The Fifth Estate. The Government of Alberta is aware of AARC and its treatment model and shares many of your concerns. 

The lack of regulation for privately funded addiction treatment facilities in Alberta is currently under review by the Minister of Health and her office is working towards the implementation of regulations.  Her office would be pleased to keep you apprised of this work. 

In the meantime, Alberta Health is committed to supporting providers and people seeking services with resources on how to select quality and safe treatment.  In November 2017 the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, with funding from Alberta Health, developed the Finding Quality Addiction Care Guide.

Should you or your partner be aware of physical or psychological abuse committed at AARC, I urge you to contact the police.

Thank you for reaching out to help us understand your concerns with private addiction operators. The Minister of Health will be in touch with updates as regulations are developed.

Rachel Notley
Premier of Alberta"

is this:
"NDP representative to be contacted by Dwain Lingenfelter who is a AARC alumni parent and running for NDP leader in Saskatchewan – Dwain will be contacting MLA Rachael Notley re: NDP calling for investigation Calgary Herald article – Dwain has informed and updated Nexen re: The Fifth Estate.

"AARC will go on serving youth and families as long as it will be needed, if it keeps open to God for inspiration" Dr. F. Dean Vause Executive Director

MR. NELSON: Mr. Speaker, AADAC has been involved with
assistance in developing the program of the Alberta Adolescent
Recovery Centre since its inception originally as Kids of the
Canadian West."
