In light of more dreadful media coverage of 🇨🇦 Day and military veteran James Topp’s historic march from Vancouver to Ottawa, I’ve decided to compile a 🧵 showcasing images of just how far our 🇨🇦 journalistic integrity has fallen. Please share.

I mean who can forget this pathetic poll from @CTVNews that they pulled down within hours because they lack all human decency, morality, and foresight. Our “most trusted news” is asking whether Canadians should be jailed for NOT injecting themselves with something. Image
To add to the insanity of the previous poll, here’s @CTVNews reporting on C19 + healthcare workers being allowed to come into work, but covid NEGATIVE employees were placed on unpaid leave for the crime of being unvaccinated. Covidians only want to catch their C19 from 💉 people. Image

1) The following are three articles penned by #Canadian historian Michael Jabara Carley. He offers some very interesting insights on the relationship between #Canada and #Ukraine, this is worth checking out...


"Our government is supporting a violent, racist regime in #Kiev directly descended from that very enemy against which #Canada and its allies fought during World War II."

-Historian Prof. Michael Jabara Carley (Strategic Culture Foundation)…

Freeland "has left a trail of hate-filled and mendacious articles on #Russia..."

It’s noteworthy #NevrePoilievre marched with ubiquitous & extremely dodgy character, Paul Alexander. Many have heard his name by now, but it’s important to note how Alexander keeps turning up. He wasn’t just a Trump appointee, he was handpicked by Michael Caputo. #Freedumbers ImageImageImageImage
Michael Caputo created controversy, even within the Trump administration. Caputo has ties to both Putin & Roger Stone. So how he came to personally pluck Alexander, an obscure part-time instructor in 🇨🇦, to help him bully scientists at #HHS, is still a mystery to me. #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
Paul Alexander shows up again & again. He was a central figure in #FluTruxKlan 1, & shows up again in #CoupTruxKlan 2.0. #cdnpoli #FreeDumbConvoy ImageImageImageImage

Anybody who thinks that Skippy's little march with James Topp yesterday will backfire on him is deluding themselves. We here in #cdnpoli mostly know who the yahoos in the #FreeDumbConvoy really are, but the vast majority of #CPC voters don't. "But James Topp is a VETERAN. .../2

🧵 Self-Guided Tour of Laurier House National Historic Site

Museums are free admission on Canada Day, and the former residence of PMs Wilfred Laurier & Mackenzie King has always been one of my favourite spots.

Please indulge me while I nerd out.

#cdnpoli #CanadaDay2022
The positioning of chairs in the drawing room always makes me imagine an old-timey AA meeting.

Fun fact: Mackenzie King was a lifelong teetotaller.
The scavenger hunt question for the dining room was about identifying Mackenzie King’s mom’s portrait.

In fact, I’m not sure I could name any of the portrait subjects, even though they were presumably important enough to be painted in their lifetimes.

History is humbling.

1) The following thread offers an expose into #Canada's involvement with #Ukrainian neo-fascists, it is quite a telling reveal of #Canadian support of the most extreme elements from #Ukraine.

And the news sources cited are not pro-Russian.

This fascist “movement” has hijacked our flag, hijacked #CanadaDay2022, trampled the FREEDOMS of others to enjoy 🇨🇦 Day at the nation’s capital. Hijacked peace & normal life of Ottawa residents & cost businesses. Fuck these Brownshirts & all who enable them. #cdnpoli #ottnews
Many Trump/#January6th supporters, have come as tourists to participate in this op. Right wing circles have exchanged plans to camp at KOA grounds all summer in an attempt to sabotage & disrupt 🇨🇦’s democratically elected gov’t with the full seditious participation of #CPC.

Fascist AstroTurf “movements” like #UnitedWeRoll & #CoupTruxKlan 1 & 2, are essentially #NevrePolievre’s Beer Hall Putsch of 1923. Only this time with far greater sophistication & with the benefit of developing an evolved updated version yet coming from the same playbook #cdnpoli
#NevrePoilievre’s constant data mining, using his phoney petitions, is not benign & is collecting data on potentially millions of Canadians. To what end? It certainly isn’t for the reasons he claims. Other #Conservatives do the same. #cdnpoli #NeverVoteConservative
More data-mining phoney petitions. The only other job #NevrePoilievre had other than politician (remember his involvement in the Harper cheating robocalls scandal?), was as co-owner of “3D Contact Inc” along with YYC MLA, Jonathan Denis. They specialized in robocalls. #cdnpoli

This Canada Day sullying began when talk began to emerge about a possible Trudeau leadership candidacy. The Conservatives got right on their fears and launched a campaign to define him in derogatory terms (homophobic, racist, etc.). /2 #cdnpoli
2/ It was said at the time that it would probably not work because Canadians had known the PM since he was a child. Well, with the help of Canada's press, American-funded "think"-tanks, and Conservative Party failure, a hate constituency was nevertheless assembled. /3
3/ That assembly was aided by social media, where the fools and idiots could bond with each other in collective malice born of petty grievance and ignorance. Racists, bigots, misogynists, and evil foreign actors found mutual acceptance. It was also a rich grifting opportunity. /4

So uh…

About that Mountainview Freedom Forum.

It uh.

It got pretty wild.

Here’s @ABDanielleSmith arguing that not only should pastors who monetized the health protections get amnesty, but they should also get “compensation”.

Including Artur.


#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli
Not to be outdone, @BrianJeanAB stood up and pledged to never arrest a pastor if premier, and then went after the judiciary, yet again…


#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli
So with Brian and Danielle both publicly pledging that they would never ever arrest a pastor, we only have one question…

"CAPP must do a much better job of talking to the investment community about its own net-zero goals, & the industry’s swath of investments in clean & emissions-reducing technologies.”
The problem isn’t the storytelling, it’s the story.
Let’s start with net zero goals.

None of CAPP’s members have goals aligned with the Net Zero Standard for Oil & Gas, which is backed by >20 global investors with ~$10 trillion of assets under management.…
Why not? They refuse to include the pollution from burning their product.
How about investments in clean & emissions-reducing tech?
Don’t just give us dollar numbers, put it in context.
IEA estimates this will only account for ~5% of upstream spending in 2022 (mostly thanks to European co’s)—95% to sustaining & increasing fossil fuel production. 3/

A Tale of Two Coups: A thread about the diverging performance of democratic institutions in response to recent coup attempts in Canada and the USA. #KlondikePapers #January6thHearings #FreedomConvoy #cdnpoli #CanadaDay #EmergencyAct
TL;DR: The US is outpacing Canada in responding to foreign attacks on its democracy by communicating intelligence with its population.
1/62 The past month has been a study in contrasts as the proverbial chickens come home to roost for both the Canadian “Crypto Convoy” and January 6 coup attempts of the past two winters.

Is Commissioner Brenda Lucki being truthful?
(avoiding use of the L-word)


IN A SHORT ANALYSIS of the language, grammar and syntax, we'll evaluate @CommrRCMPGRC's 'own' words. We'll look closer at her written statement for signs of deception. +

#cdnpoli Image
It's reasonable to presume that this was prepared by (unidentified) others for Commissioner and likely is not exclusively her 'own' words. Irrespective, she has adopted it.

@CommrRCMPGRC fails to directly deny the allegation of political interference. The omission is glaring. + Image
People do not want to lie. They will settle on the easiest form of deception. It's easier for a person to be dishonest using "never" as opposed to directly telling a lie by saying "I didn't do it." A slight change in wording can reveal something a person may tend to withhold. + Image

1/ The Conservative media propaganda campaign against the government of 🇨🇦 intensifies as they try to make the white supremacist-led protests seem justified by throwing everything behind a manufactured fake scandal.

With CPC in freefall, who is pulling these strings? Cui bono?
2/ What has the current govt done that makes it so urgent to undermine it even when the Opposition is practically leaderless and fractured?

If I were a conspiracy theorist - and I don't think I am, but I am on the intuitive side - I would have three suspects.

3/ • First would be what people are referring to variably as the Dominionists or christofascists, whose influence has been part of the fracturing of Conservatism and has been bubbling under the surface for a century. Emboldened by their success in the USA, they could be making

So, get comfy, this is going to be long. But it is very important. #cdnpoli #RoeVWade #TruthAndReconciliation

I am going to try to work through this thought process, and I welcome correction from voices I respect...
@ironbow I especially want your take on this.
I am a Canadian woman. I have stood up for the rights of women and girls all my life. I also have sought to be an ally for Indigenous issues and BLM and the LGBTQ2+ community. Everyone has rights. Whether they are recognized or not.
When Roe V Wade was overturned 2 days ago, I felt it deeply. Yes, that is in the US, and so far, only about half the states have a ban. But it is robbing women of their human rights. I felt that deeply for them, and also

The abhorrent backsliding of rights in the United States should be a warning to voters everywhere - in every liberal democracy where we pride ourselves on our values and the resilience of our society. Progress isn't inevitable. It can stop. It can go backwards. #cdnpoli 1/10
What has happened in the States isn't a sudden disaster. The erosion of basic liberal and democratic values happens over time. Every time we lose sight of our common goals as a society - the idea that we're in this together - we damage the project a little more. #cdnpoli 2/10
We organize ourselves through politics - however messy and imperfect the process may be. We need to believe the system can work - we need to devote ourselves to making it work. Because the alternative is simply a death spiral where the ends justify any means. #cdnpoli 3/10

Live tweeting the first UCP leadership panel?

Sounds like a plan!

1/ um… probably a whooooooole bunch.

#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli
Just jazzy elevator music so far…

The comments are…

They aren’t great. So far, we need more guns, land acknowledgements are terrible, and the MAGA crowd is here in force.

In true UCP fashion tho, definitely not starting on time.
Aaaaaand here we go!

Rob Anderson opens the show up.

He says 7 of the UCP candidates are here, one wasn’t invited because they’ve never been an MLA, that’s Bill Rock.

Introductions are underway and the screens are so TINY!

I bet some of you never noticed this, and those who did have forgotten it. Pierre Poilievre tried to launch a scandal against the PM, claiming he was building a "secret palace" at taxpayers' expense. Let me fill you in....
The National Capital Commission, who oversees the maintenance on publicly owned buildings in Ottawa and area, got approval from Parliament to do necessary renovations on the Harrington Lake property while Harper was PM.
It is an old structure. Old buildings need work. The Harper government, of which Poilievre was a part, approved the plan to do maintenance and renovations. Harper spent most summers there and said he would like to retire there, although the property is for the use of the PM...

A reminder of what a delusional psychopath Tom Marazzo is. This toxic nut-job who was fired from his job, not elected to anything, imagined himself as high level negotiator “willing” to sit down with elected opposition. The entitlement of these assholes is unreal. #FreeDumbConvoy
Tamara Lich, Tom Marazzo, Quiggin, Dichter, Pat King, Chris Sky, all of them, fit the description from this past tweet.
the #TyrannyOfTheStupid.

#FreeDumbConvoy #cdnpoli
The CAF’s wording of Marazzo’s full release from the CAF suggests he was let go. They won’t say why. #FreeDumbConvoy

Let’s play connect the dots. I’ll say it again #FreeDumbConvoy is about establishing a RW insurgency. It’s not a coincidence that many #January6 insurrectionists have both participated in & promoted #CoupTruxKlan & the disinformation assault on #PMJT. #CdnNatSec #cdnpoli
Enter players like Tom Marazzo. His connections to radicalized current & former law enforcement & military can be seen most readily through “vets 4 freedom” & its allied group “camp eagle”. #FreeDumbConvoy #CdnNatSec #cdnpoli #OttawaOccupation
Marazzo also ran as a candidate for Derek Sloan’s neo-fascist “Ontario Party”, which enlisted the services of malignant insurrectionist, Roger Stone. #FreeDumbConvoy #CdnNatSec #January6thCommiteeHearings #cdnpoli #OttawaOccupation #CoupTruxKlan
