As well, organizers paused ticket sales for a similar reason for the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship pre-tournament, which was supposed to start Sunday in Red Deer. 

Albertans began picking up their free rapid test kits on Friday, although some pharmacies and Alberta Health Services sites quickly ran out of supply. Top Stories
