Rodeo was billed as an anti-lockdown event in a province with more than 22,000 active COVID-19 cases

Over the weekend as Alberta reported thousands of new COVID-19 cases, reaching dire numbers not seen earlier in the pandemic, hundreds attended a rodeo in an empty lot along Highway 2A, near Bowden, about 30 kilometres south of Red Deer.
