This tweet is garbage. There were never mandates for truckers in Canada, unless those were imposed by truckers' employers or those employers' customers. On the contrary, before vaccines were available, there were *exemptions* for truckers crossing the US/Cdn border. /2 #cdnpoli
2/ Now that vaccines are available there are mandates for truckers entering the US and there are mandates for truckers entering Canada. So, an unvaccinated trucker can't enter the US and an unvaccinated American trucker can't enter Canada. /3
3/ This has not resulted in any material food shortages in Canada, contrary to the BS coming from the MP for Thornhill, who used a Brexit-caused food shortage in the UK for disinformation in Canada.

Instead of addressing the true source of gun crime in Canada, the Liberal government is unilaterally banning imports without parliamentary input, impacting a multi-billion dollar industry and thousands of retailers and small businesses, with very little notice. (1/8)
Rather than prioritizing safer communities through combatting gang violence and stopping the flow of illegal and smuggled guns hitting our streets, today’s announcement is yet another example of the Liberal government attacking business owners and law abiding citizens, (2/8)
and disrespecting an important part of Canada’s cultural heritage.

The vast majority of gun crime in Canada is attributed to gangs and criminals with illegal guns smuggled in from the US. Today’s announcement will do nothing to stop the flow of illegal handguns, (3/8)

This week @StatCan_eng released their hate crime statistics for 2021, prompting various pro-Israel groups to claim that Jewish Canadians are the most targeted religious minority in Canada, a claim resting on major methodological weaknesses and assumptions.

A 🧵
All hate crimes must be taken seriously and those targeting Jews are no exception. When hate crime stats are reported in ways that are misleading, however, their usefulness is undercut, and harmful narratives are spread. @CRRF

During a time of increasing weaponization of antisemitism accusations against supporters of Palestine by right-wing and pro-Israel actors, statistics which over-represent Jews and under-represent other groups risk feeding into hierarchies of racism which prioritize antisemitism.

I'm asking civic and business leaders in every municipality to set the standard by wearing N95 masks in public indoor settings and to remind everyone that doing so helps protect them, their community, and helps keep our hospitals running. Lead means going first. #onpoli #cdnpoli Image
Some may have been misled into thinking that individuals can protect themselves by wearing masks so there is no need to wear one yourself. The truth is, if you wear a mask it reduces the risk for others whether they wear a mask or not. And many do not know they are infectious.
Some may have been misled into thinking previous infections or vaccinations/boosters protect you from infection and protect you from transmitting Omicron to others. This is not true, BA.5 evades your immunity better than any prior variant, especially when it comes to infections.

I don't see anything about this directory which looks good if one is a Conservative. It has the link leading to Baber's page. It shows links to adopting a trucker, supporting health professionals who are anti-vaccine for everything, .. /1

conspiracy blogs to rail against WEF/WHO/etc, organizations for the overthrow of gov't (Veterans 4 Freedom), wanting to open up Canada at all costs, Conservative leadership candidates on there, etc. /2
Now I can definitely understand how the Freedom Convoy 2022 got started up so fast with these vast networks and the CPC connections just prove how imbedded the CPC is with the Freedom Convoy and these movements, many of whom are on the extreme right. /3

Roman Baber is saying what Conservatives are too afraid to say in public. This not only contains deplorables language against all progressives, Liberals, Greens and social democrats, but it also goes against what most Canadians believe in. /1

The Conservative party through Baber's language believes that since we are only 1.5% of global emissions that we should just throw our hands up and do nothing. But the Conservatives did those exact things for 10 years. Well the planet doesn't have 10 years. /2
But for a Conservative to be saying these things in 2022 shows that they don't care about future generations, the planet, the need to do anything, and that is based on the motion which their party passed last year which wants no action to be taken on climate change. /3

BREAKING: 1000+ members of the health community & 200+ organizations ACROSS ONTARIO are delivering a letter to @fordnation @SylviaJonesMPP, calling for universal access to #healthcare4all in Ontario. #ONpoli #ONwide #CDNpoli #SDOH #statusforall
The Ontario gov't did the right thing when it removed long-standing barriers to accessing medical services for people without health insurance. Now it needs to make those changes PERMANENT. It's the right thing to do, for people and for our health system. #healthcare4all #ONpoli
There's a cost to not helping a child w/ asthma manage their condition or not ensuring a diabetic person can access medications -- a human cost + a cost to our health system b/c of worsened conditions. Universal access to health services must be PERMANENT. Period. #Healthcare4all

@JustinTrudeau @cafreeland @CBCPolitics @ElectionsCan_E It has become distressingly obvious that a great many Canadians are quite ignorant of how our Westminster parliamentary democracy works. The opposition is taking full advantage of this ignorance. 1/10
Our media, much of which is a monopoly owned by a foreign corporation with ties to the American Republican Party, does very little to set the record straight when incorrect claims are made by opposition MPs. This should not be the case. 2/10
Misinformation & disinformation put our democratic systems at risk. The public cannot make informed voting decisions if they have been led to believe things which are not accurate. Our 4th estate should be challenging incorrect/misleading statements, but they often do not. 3/10

The media and politicians have to call out this nonsense because there is no way a nation can inflation-proof itself in a globalized world, and Poilievre already been embarrassed by using crypto and saying that is how people can opt-out of inflation. He is lying again.

So now he is saying that you can produce more oil and gas and food and somehow that will create the conditions to opt-out of inflation? No serious economist would ever agree with that. Employment also doesn't make a person or their family free from inflation during a crisis.
How many people lost their shirts because of Poilievre's words. That alone should have been enough to disqualify him from continuing to run and spread his lies, simple answers and misinformation and disinformation.

🚨IS IT UNREALISTIC to expect one's MP to answer a straightforward & reasonable question?

APPARENTLY for @MarkGerretsen it may be too much of an imposition.

He has NEITHER acknowledged NOR replied to essentially two (2) questions asked on 20 July 2022.(Frame 4)
#cdnpoli #ygk
Mr. Gerretsen has ⟨IGNORED⟩ ten (10) polite reminders/nudges to reply. Plainly, he has decided not to respond.

SO the questions remain unanswered - at least not by himself.

AND YET as recently as yesterday, he finds time to post nonsense like 'Honey Badger' tweet. (Below)
Air of nonaccountability (and unmitigated arrogance) encapsulated in his 'Honey Badger' makes it abundantly clear that the answers to these important questions must be obtained ELSEWHERE.

AS A RESULT, I will conduct my own follow up. His own constituents are waiting to hear.

I've read the stories describing the apology tour of Pope Francis. On Monday after his first visit near Edmonton I decided to comment after the saga had unfolded. It was an emotional week for so many!
1/ #PopeFrancis #Canada #residentialschools #truthandreconciliation
We heard apologies, pleading forgiveness, more apologies, recognition of "cultural destruction" and finally on the flight home #PopeFrancis said "yes, it was a genocide, yes, yes, clearly. You can say that I said it was a genocide."
2/ #residentialschools…
The genocide was justified by the #DoctrineOfDiscovery & while #PopeFrancis, #CatholicChurch, & Crown gov'ts are reluctant to rescind it, the actions I witnessed against the #Wetsuweten in their own territory are empowered by the Doctrine.

Pollution is bad, fining polluters is good. I’m ok w/ a carbon tax. Federal government must commit to helping finance upgraded energy grid focussing on hydroelectric & nuclear power. If auto industry can phase out new internal combustion engines by 2035, great! #cdnpoli #uspoli Image

Your colleague Chong warned that regulations are important to protect against people losing their homes, for regulations to protect the environment. You abandoned for 10 years with Harper young people and presided over a lost generation. /1

You also said that you don't want any welfare state, no safety nets, no public health care system, no action on climate change. The Conservative party also wanted no benefits for Canadians when we could have ended up in a Great Depression. Canadians cannot trust the CPC. /2
Your gov't from 2006 to 2015 did nothing on housing. Inflation is a global phenomenon caused by global forces, and energy does not get produced by oil and gas and oil is not triggered by inflation and it is an internationally traded commodity. /3

Most of it comes from the Conservative party and their alignment with the far-right and amplifying that up and limiting it to foreign interference is missing the big picture and seems to be a way to shift blame. This is what happens when you flirt with the far-right.

But it is also coddling the far-right and like Manning said wanting to harness it. Well we have seen what coddling and giving oxygen to the far-right means which is businesses being attacked, people ramming gates and death threats and seeking to overthrow gov't.
But the Conservatives are palling around with the far-right, racists, homophobes, those who wish to hang progressive politicians, those who wish to scapegoat and force people out of politics. So no the Conservatives and PPC are 100% responsible. Who will hold them to account?!

We need to lay down some facts in response to Poilievre's tweet where he said Harper had strong economic growth and did a great job in power. The facts beg to differ and why Harper was removed from power. Here is my thread to outline some clear facts. /1


Harper growth record worst since R.B. Bennett

"This government has only one prescription for everything – austerity, austerity and more austerity." /2
"That’s the message coming from the Bank of Canada this week. But it seems lost on this government. Mr. Harper has the worst economic growth record since the dismal days of R.B. Bennett." /3

A little more #TUPOC (or #TUPC). See embedded attached threads to catch yourself up. Let’s meet another director of “The United People of Canada”, Diane Nolan. She was most definitely a participant of the #FluTruxKlan op, including livestreaming from #OttawaOccupation. #cdnpoli
#TUPOC gaslights routinely about its ties to #FreeDumbConvoy. Yet all of the directors participated in the op in one form or another. The #ChristoFascist element of #FluTruxKlan didn’t get as much attention as some other elements, yet the religious Right was very a factor.
Diane Nolan is also a “Power Ministry” Canadian director. A fundamentalist global religious network. #TUPOC #FluTruxKlan #FreeDumbConvoy #cdnpoli

“This is a call to arms,” he says. “So if you feel the need to glue yourself to a motorway or blockade an oil refinery, do it. Drive an electric car or, even better, use public transport, walk or cycle. Switch to a green energy tariff; eat less meat."

So what’s the deal with the fertilizer anyways?

UCP Leadership candidates are lighting their hair on fire about how the feds want to take away fertilizer from farmers.

But is that what’s actually happening?

(You already know the answer, but 🧵!)

#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli

So what is happening is the feds have identified that there needs to be a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases by about 30% by 2030.

While that CAN mean just use 30% less fertilizer, there’s actually a whole lot of options available.

There’s different methods, different fertilizers, etc.

And the feds have acknowledged that different strategies will be needed across the country for different environments and crops.

So what they’re doing, until the end of August is holding consultation.

A friend asked how come Pierre Poilievere didn't attend any of the Pope's Canadian apology tour? The same guy who mere hours before The House of Commons was about to issue an historic apology went on radio and stepped on and trashed "aboriginal people"?
Not only could he not show his face, he would have been morally eviscerated by survivors if dumb enough to do so.
But for the sake of argument lets say he was dumb enough, the guy who refers to Black Canadians as Tar Babies couldn't attend an apology where the Pope is admitting to Genocide and keep his frothing Convoy/PPC/Christo-fascist types happy while doing so.

OK, so... it turns out the new Abacus poll isn't catastrophic for the Liberals/JT after all. Much of that inflated CPC national lead is in BC (which is always chaotic to poll) and out west (where they run up dictator margins anyway). Thread with some of my thoughts... #cdnpoli 1/
The Liberals are well ahead in the Atlantic and statistically tied in Quebec and Ontario. That's the ballgame. The CPC need to run the tables in Ontario to have any shot of forming govt. This poll would *still* see LPC forming government were an election held today. #cdnpoli 2/
JT's "negative approvals" are primarily from Conservatives and QC separatists who already don't like him. He supposedly isn't doing great with "NDP voters" (-24) and yet he is +47 among self-identified left-of-centre folks. Key indicator for strategic voting. #cdnpoli 3/

There is some ridiculous propaganda going around social media about a fake "fertilizer ban" that's being spread by the same convoy folks who push anti-vax nonsense. It needs to be debunked before anyone falls for it.
Propaganda spreaders are actually saying we'll all soon have to eat bugs or starve to death. It's nonsense
1. There is no fertilizer ban coming to Canada!
2. There is a voluntary, I repeat - voluntary - 30% emissions reduction target for agriculture
3. There is $550 million available to help farmers modernize, keep high yields, and remain competitive and profitable
There are lots of ways to reduce agriculture sector emissions that SAVES farmers money and provides higher yields.
