The New Brunswick Minister of Health tabled significant changes to the Public Health Act today.

These may appear minor but they provide legislative adjustments so New Brunswick no longer has to resort to using a State of Emergency in a subsequent wave of COVID. #nbpoli #cdnlaw
At first glance, these amendments address several concerns I identified with the current Public Health Act: unclear roles, unclear class orders, allowing closure of premises related to notifiable diseases, increasing fines.

I discussed changes on my blog:…
In any legislation there will always be room for improvement. Let me be clear at first glance full credit to Public Health and the Office of the Attorney General.

Bill 104 provides a proper legal framework for New Brunswick to respond to pandemics.

1/9🧵 It's grievous #CDNmedia won't do its job so it appears I'm betraying my gender for contributing the facts

But problem with this narrative is they're omitting the part where Chu met the girl at a bar & that's what everything hinges on due to Supreme Court precedent #Thread
2/9🧵 Reason it matters that Chu met her at a drinking establishment is because Supreme Court ruled it's reasonable to ascertain someone is an adult, due to the pub's legal onus to check IDs to permit entry. Chu can't be prosecuted for luring a minor since she misrepresented age
3/9🧵 Now, with the amount of people who don't know the first thing about #CDNlaw + #CDNmedia failing its due diligence to inform, everyone is hopping on a political bandwagon to seek vengeance & claim the system is completely broken

💥This discourages women from reporting💥

1/34 🧵#CDNpoli #SLAPP

I've received a threatening letter from lawyers on behalf of @MercedesGlobal & @GlobalNews to prevent me from speaking about Stephenson's role in #CDNmedia as the wife of Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole's #Elxn44 director

This #thread is my response
2/34 🧵#CDNpoli #CDNmedia #Elxn44

I will not comply with demands made in bad faith by @GlobalNews & @MercedesGlobal, nor will I shrink from unfounded #SLAPP allegations that are libelous against me. I ask that you cease & desist with this harassment. Here are my reasons (con't):
3/34 🧵#CDNpoli #CDNmedia #Elxn44

On the 1st page of your error-laden defamation notice, you claim that I've caused @GlobalNews & @MercedesGlobal "serious damage" but fail to state any negative consequences & fail to provide evidence of damage

Is Elections Canada investigating?

Disappointed in #CDNmedia. Downplaying #violence & mischaracterizing blame must stop. Threat is more serious than anyone wants it to be

This #thread is about NEW #HateClub escalation

2/24 🧵#CDNpoli #Violence #Elxn44

Someone alerted me to a new post in Zelda's Facebook #HateClub (thank you)

On the surface it indicates a #Conservative partisan/electoral purpose & that's interesting enough, but upon digging deeper it's a legitimate cause for #NatSec concern
3/24 🧵#CDNpoli #Violence #Elxn44

Inspection of first revealed a plan to unite Conservatives

Closer to election it became a Trudeau attack machine

That claimed to be factual

1/24 #CDNpoli

A serious problem has developed with #CDNmedia's ability to cover #Elxn44 accurately + voters' ability to participate in honest debate about that issue, sorely threatening #democracy

This #thread is RE Mercedes Stephenson, #ethics, suspended accounts & #CDNlaw
2/24 #Thread #CDNpoli #Elxn44

Last month I posted a thread addressing Mercedes Stephenson & the alleged conflict of interest with her husband, Dan Mader, in an effort to neutralize #disinformation in the pre-writ phase. It received 87,000+ impressions

3/24 #Thread #CDNpoli #Elxn44

As you know, Mercedes Stephenson is the @globalnews Ottawa bureau chief

Husband Dan Mader is a Conservative strategist for both provincial & federal parties, spanning at least 2 decades

Coming up, key highlights from todays’ federal budget as the government plans more than $101B in net new spending over the next three fiscal years (2021-2024), representing 4.2% of Canada’s GDP. #cdnpoli #cdnecon #budget2021
Budget 2021 and fiscal guardrails for new spending: “A comprehensive range of indicators show that the Canadian economy is still far from seeing a strong labour market with broadly shared benefits.” #cdnpoli #cdnecon #budget2021
Budget 2021: last year’s deficit now projected at $354.2B. For 2021-22: a projected $154.7B shortfall, but a warning that third-wave slowdowns could add $15B to deficit. #cdnpoli #cdnecon #budget2021

1/10 Update RE Kinsella Complaint #CDNlaw

Unfortunately there's a delay filing with @LawSocietyLSO due to the regulator's insufficient process for visually impaired complainants

With concern, the Ontario Law Society doesn't outline disabled access provisions in process manual
2/10 Update RE Kinsella Complaint #CDNlaw

Moreover, the @LawSocietyLSO doesn't accept digital evidence arising from a lawyer's online misconduct, harassment &/or possible criminal activity

LSO created a barrier to modern complaints by forcing all internet evidence to be printed
3/10 Update RE Kinsella Complaint #CDNlaw

In order to file this complex & serious complaint, the @LawSocietyLSO requires hundreds of pages of digital evidence to be submitted in printed form instead of accepting links to original & archived copies

This will cost more than $1000

1/10 #CDNpoli #ForeignInterference @ElectionsCan_E @rcmpgrcpolice #Elxn43

It appears RCMP will need to investigate if the allegations of voter fraud in #ABleg have now tainted the federal election

More than 1 person from Alberta has come forward with an illegitimate voter ID
2/10 #CDNpoli #ForeignInterference @ElectionsCan_E @rcmpgrcpolice #Elxn43

For the record, I have not engaged in doxing Mr. Gabriel

He made his complaint & photo of the illegitimate voter ID card public, with a request that everyone shares it widely…
3/10 #CDNpoli #ForeignInterference @ElectionsCan_E @rcmpgrcpolice

Moreover, Mr. Gabriel's example illuminates that voter ID cards are being distributed to non-Canadians via post office box numbers & not physical addresses, so any foreign entity could easily interfere in #Elxn43

This story by @RcuthbertsonCBC about a dangerous sexual predator allowed to roam in Nova Scotia has further to go, in order to define the systemic failures that are placing Canadian girls in jeopardy

cc @SRAInvestigates, @ericrankincbc…
2/2 #CDNpoli

I was asked by @Gillian5th to submit a brief overview, as this does define those systemic failures that persist in #CDNlaw

But I'm unable to condense due to widespread consequences

Plz read, @SRAInvestigates @ericrankincbc @RcuthbertsonCBC…
3/2 #CDNpoli

If @CBCNews & @cbcfifth are conscientious about covering girls who are maimed & murdered due to lapses in #CDNlaw, they'll take the time to read & absorb, to avoid exploiting them via lightweight snippets

I was asked to comment on this video

By @RobertFife & @VassyKapelos on @PnPCBC

RE Jody Wilson-Raybould & the #SNCLavalin affair

But it was so problematic that it requires a #THREAD to address these troubling #CDNmedia & #ethics issues

2/25 #CDNpoli #CDNmedia #SNCLavalin

In chronological order:

The @PnPCBC interview (in post #1) begins with libeling @SenDuffy, by inferring he was guilty of breach of trust charges, when in fact he was exonerated & thoroughly vindicated by the court…
3/25 #CDNpoli #CDNmedia #SNCLavalin

It's amazing that @VassyKapelos would spin the intro so dishonestly when @CBCNews covered @SenDuffy's exoneration - rebutting her own characterization to falsely boost @RobertFife's rep

Duffy's lawyer @BSB_Law will be disappointed, @ChuckTCBC

1/20 Elections Canada political advertising rules go into effect in June

Here are the basics, but this #THREAD describes many ways Bill #C76 is utterly useless to protect #CDNpoli & #Elxn43 from interference in a digital world

It's truly a huge failure…
2/20 Bill #C76 can be reduced to nothing more than the digital administration of political ads, with loopholes so large that it can't serve any purpose

It does nothing whatsoever to insulate #CDNpoli from foreign interference, or partisan interests subverting #Elxn43 limitations
3/20 #CDNpoli #Elxn43

Bill #C76 requires websites that provide paid advertising space to keep a registry of who paid for political ads

Before this legislation, clever citizens who are experienced in #tech were able to suss out that info & broadcast to the social media ecosystem

1/25 #THREAD On the #ethics of Jody Wilson-Raybould recording a convo with Michael Wernick RE #SNCLavalin

Read further to debunk the #CDNmedia & partisan spin + public's grasp of #CDNpoli #CDNlaw that's circulating social media

(Ex. of that mythology)
2/25 #SNCLavalin #CDNpoli #CDNlaw #Ethics

It's not possible for pundits & partisan actors to have their cake & eat it too

Due to the barrage of biased misinformation about Jody Wilson-Raybould's role as attorney general vs justice minister, it's necessary to explain the basics
3/25 If Jody Wilson-Raybould assumed the role of solicitor to the govt in this #SNCLavalin matter, it wouldn't be unethical to record her calls w clients & witnesses #CDNpoli

This is standard practice in #CDNlaw, so lawyers don't forget details & properly document billable hours

Bill C-71 — Canadian Senate Committee on National Security and Defence (SECD) resumes review of Bill C-71, the government's planned law against hunters, farmers and sport shooters.




Senator David Richards on Bill C-71 against hunters, farmers and sport shooters:

"I think it’s a subtle bureaucratic way of profiling rural Canadians."

If you are afraid your spouse/bf/gf is going to murder or beat you, call the police or helpline immediately. Maybe consider a new relationship?

Don't lobby the government to pass new laws. Murder and beatings are already illegal.

1 of 80) Please bear with me, because the following is filled with plenty of foul language & I'm taking off the professional mask to speak with you as a human being. I've had enough & I've hit my limit, putting up with all the #MeToo bullshit in #CDNpoli, #ONpoli, & #CDNmedia
2) For the past 2 years, you've been ruining my #FamilyDay because the lot of you picked this holiday to shove an alleged child molester down my throat. It's the ultimate in sick behaviour & your choice of holiday is astounding, to champion the cause of #ChildPorn in #CDNpoli
3) What's worse is that forcing me to say those words actually makes me appear like I'm out-to-lunch. Your outrageous acts of gaslighting, censorship, & obstruction, have made it impossible for anyone to tell the most important #MeToo story in #CDNpoli currently
