This morning we saw something we will NEVER forget.

We were at the #Walmart in Southeast #Calgary. We were shopping for some groceries when my stepson saw someone take a package of meat and put it under their shirt and then slowly walk over to their cart. #Food #Hungry #Alberta
This person had very few things in their cart. My stepson knows what I do here at @HarvestHillsYYC & he asked if we could help them.

I said yes we could but that this person would feel ganged up on if we all walked over to them, so I told him to stay here and that I’d walk over.
I walked over to where they had their cart and said “I know what it is like to struggle. I would love it if you’d let me help you and I’d like to pay for your groceries.”

This person looked up at me and said “did you see me take the meat?” I said “yes I did. I’d like to help”.

**A Thread** (1) We are the victims of a calculated and sustained attack on our human rights by a cabal of our elected leaders. All over Europe a coordinated push by the new world order to bring in vaccine passports for us to access our basic freedoms is underway.
(2) It would be very easy to become disheartened and accept what seems like the inevitable but now is the most important time of all. We all need to HOLD THE LINE. If we give in now our kids future will be a dystopian nightmare. Here in Ireland we stand with #France We stand with

We have a serious emergency.

Late this afternoon we were contacted by a senior named “Helen”. She only had one meal left in her kitchen.

She called us for help and we are helping.

We will be using the last of our available funds to get her some much needed groceries. #YYC #YEG
We will hopefully be giving her enough groceries for an entire month so she doesn’t have to worry about having to choose between medications/food, food/electricity, food/rent.

Too many #Calgarians are being ignored and forgotten. Too many #Calgarians are afraid to ask for #help.
We need help. If anyone can help with a donation towards her food hamper, we will be here for about 2 more hours because we are shopping for four seniors tonight.

You can help by donating by any of the options ⬇️ #Donate #community #donations #DisabilityTwitter #BeKind #Alberta

A blanket of smoke is covering #Alberta today.

Climate change events like this are becoming more frequent. So here is a short thread on air quality.

#cdnpoli #ableg #abpoli
cbc.ca/news/canada/ed…
Right now there are air quality advisories across the province.

Health Canada uses a 1-10 scale where 1 is nice clean air and 10 is a like a #Conservative government in your lungs.

Alberta uses the same scale.

airquality.alberta.ca/map/🔗

#ableg #cdnpoli #absmoke ImageImageImage
A 1-10 scale is beautiful in it’s simplicity, but it also fails to communicate what’s really going ok with air pollution.

@environmentca does offer explanations for these numbers, but you have to go looking for them. Image

#Canada is now being recognized for its decision to delay second doses and extend more first shots across the population due to early vaccine shortages as major provinces entered a serious third wave ahead of the rollout. This chart describes what happened.

#Moldova election day, July 11 - about 48.28% of the registered voters have exercised their right to elect by 21.43hrs in the Republic of Moldova and abroad. This is a considerably lower percentage than during Presidential elections:
2. The approximate distribution by gender and age of the voters in #Modova elections today (as it was recorded at 21.43hrs Moldovan time) is aprox 54% women voters and aprox. 45% men.
3. Preliminary exit poll data - based on phone interviews and w/o Transnistrian region - was presented at around 20.00hrs #Moldova time with PAS (President Sandu's) in lead. Yet, exit polls in the previous elections have been wildly inaccurate, resulting in confusion.

A friend came around & we got chatting ..He said very angrily ..."did you see on the news in #Canada ...people pulling down the Queen's statue" ? He was very upset...
I asked him if he knew why the people were doing so ?
He had no idea ? Did the news not specify the reason ?
I showed him this .......
Statues of Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Victoria were torn down in the #Canadian city of Winnipeg by protesters furious over the recent discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves of indigenous #children.
The protests came amid growing outrage
after at least 750 unmarked graves were found at Marieval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan and another 215 were found buried in Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia.

#Canada will not put trans men in men’s prisons because it is unsafe for them, but it allows trans women in women’s prisons.

Does anyone care that it ‘s not safe for women? Or do we only care about ppls safety if they identify as men?
nationalpost.com/opinion/barbar…
As usual, it is the most vulnerable women that are exploited and demeaned by their society.
“But among those making the move were killers, serial sex offenders and child rapists who now have a home among biological women.”

Sex offenders? With women literally imprisoned w nowhere to run? Really? How is this even real life.

Infographie par @afpfr qui circule bcp pour expliquer le #HeatDome/méga-canicule au #Canada. La description des processus à l’œuvre est au mieux très imprécise, voire fausse pour certains. On décortique tout cela ensemble dans ce fil à dérouler. ⤵️
0. "Atmosphère capture l'air chaud de l’océan".
Faux/impossible/phrase incompréhensible. L’océan n'a rien à voir avec la mise en place d'une circulation de blocage qui conduit à un #DômeDeChaleur. L’océan ne fournit pas d’énergie a l'atmos dans ces circulations de blocage (2/n)
Le mécanisme dynamique est classique: il est associé à la circulation du courant-jet qui ondule aux moyennes latitudes (latitudes tempérées) et a un déferlement d'onde (ondes de Rossby), telle une vague atmosphérique (3/n)
