Since we've heard of Toronto shelters being shut down, I am going to share w/ permission a story of a refugee family now living in #BeachesEastYork. These are the stories of the people impacted by these decisions🧵
In Nov 2019, a Mexican non-governmental org supporting those escaping gender-based violence put a call-out in an international Facebook group asking for people in Toronto who could help a refugee family of two young children and their parents.
They were arriving the next day w/ essentially the clothes on their backs (not suited to a Canadian winter). A member of an east end parenting group I am a part of shared this call, & a few of us rallied to welcome them.

Bradford admits he has had beers in parks despite voting against it. OK.
He's worried about bad actors breaking bylaws (not "responsible adults"), despite him breaking the bylaw and his staffers being ok with dog owners letting their dogs go offleash in playgrounds (also bylaws breaking). Sounds like white man privilege to me.
@shawnmicallef This interview is insane! He keeps talking about bad actors but saying her has broken the bylaw himself more than once.

Tuning into the #BEY interfaith debate. Unfortunately they decided to platform a white supremacist from the New Blue Party who just went on a rant about "critical theory".
When asked about solving homelessness, Angela Kennedy says the PC party has made a list of homeless people and what they need?
New Blue "Money won't help schools, political theory is the problem" Apparently he was a college professor? 🙄

The #BEY Green candidate is giving away seeds native to Mexico and retweeting The Post Millenial content. 🤦🏾‍♀️This election is just a constant stream of disappointment. #onpoli
Amplifying conservatives to own the liberals is a good reason for me to cancel my Green membership now.
Of the 5k ppl I follow the only mutuals are greens 🤔 Image
