A question everyone should be asking: WHY has #cdnmedia failed to report on one of the biggest political scandals in decades. O’Toole & #CPC colluded w/ #Conservative premiers to delay implementing covid measures until after #elxn44vote. People died as a result #CovidInquiryNow ImageImageImageImage
The very next day after #elxn44vote, #JasonKenney shuffles Shandro, #ScottMoe flies under the radar & the UCP sends an official request to the Trudeau gov’t for help. (Because of jurisdiction the feds must be invited). Something UCP could’ve done weeks ago. #CovidInquiryNow ImageImage
I’d just like to underscore this point. The letter sent by Ric McIver the day he replaced Shandro, is extremely revealing. A “State of Public Health Emergency” was declared on Sept 15, but no formal request was made to the Trudeau gov’t until immediately after #Elxn44. #ABleg Image

1/9 I've had enough of #Elxn44 depravity. A death threat was broadcast about me by a podcaster you all listen to. Daily there are men on Twitter #SnitchTagging me to gun nuts to spark confrontation

#FYI I've already been shot by a 357 Magnum & I will not be intimidated by anyone
2/9 Most of you want the difficult reporting on dangerous topics that keep you up at night. But on social media, there's this trend where some of you (too many of you) throw female reporters at your enemies, as if we're virtual human shields you've nominated to fight your battles
3/9 But as you 'get your popcorn' to spectate at the events you've chosen for us to do battle, against the very entities you're afraid of, some of them try to track us down in our communities. I've had calls to my home from Yellow Vesters, Wexiters, Qanons, you name it

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

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

The current COVID hotspot map. Stop racially pointing the fingers. #Conservatives blame minorities. #Progressives blame “white #Republicans.” You’re both wrong & silly. It’s more class than race. Lots of black, Hispanic, *and* white people don’t believe COVID/are anti-vacciners.
What do many anti-vacciners have in common? They tend to be of the same socioeconomic class. Elites progressives are also stupidly blaming “systemic racism” for minorities not being vaccinated. What? They are so out of touch. They obviously don’t know any lower-income minorities.
A black teenager in Brooklyn, NY recently told her white high school teacher that she doesn’t “believe in COVID.” That is, she doesn’t believe COVID is real. She’s in all black community & her views have nothing to do with “systemic racism.” Stop infantalizing black people.

#Elxn44 🧵

Why is the #cdnmedia narrative always, “Liberals show their “desperation” when bringing up classic Conservative attacks to frighten voters about:

- #abortion rights
- #LGBTQIA2S rights
- lack of #ClimateAction
- #healthcare
- cuts to programs and services/austerity
Can someone pls explain why Trudeau *shouldn’t* warn Canadians that Erin O’Toole would govern like a #Conservative?

Shouldn’t #cdnmedia #elxn44 coverage be more leery of a CPC candidate who promises big spending, to be pro-life & pro-union, to act on climate change & the TRC?
Sure O’Toole & the CPC platform *says* stuff but again — why is Trudeau *desperate* when he brings up so-called “wedge issues” when those “past” policies & positions are central to conservative ideology, and hv broad support from current CPC MPs, donors, activists & base voters?

Time to again talk about @MikeBarrettON. A far right Dominionist who denies man-made climate change, voted against the conversion “therapy” ban, & vehemently opposes a woman’s right to choose. He was helped into power by anti-choice extremist groups like #CLC. #cdnpoli #ONpoli
Michael Barrett’s has recently taken to putting out #PierrePoilievre type propaganda videos. At the end of his most recent disinformation contribution, he attempted, I guess, humour? 😣. But ironically just conveyed he was being upfront about his dishonesty? #ONpoli #cdnpoli
Michael Barrett, along with most of his far right cohorts, had very little (or nothing at all) to say about 2 deadly serious events: the #January6thInsurrection & the assassination attempt of 🇨🇦’s Prime Minister. Barrett said nothing about either.

But….

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

The people of Cuba are demanding the end of the communist regime in their beloved country. Meanwhile, the forces of totalitarianism rise up in America. @wgarneau

Imagine if #Hitler, #Stalin, and #Mao had access to the kinds of information the NSA collects. Imagine if they would have had access to Facebook, Twitter, or would have had access to the technology of the modern police state.

No need to imagine, it's happening in USA right now!
What would a political purge in America look like?

#Conservatives are being labeled dissidents, extremists, and potential terrorists by the government.

A political purge would look exactly like what is happening in America today!

Is it a waste of time to campaign for a #ProgressiveAlliance #DemocraticAlliance?

There are multiple hurdles, including:

*and NB please add, as I want to hear about any I've omitted.

(1)
- The continuing conviction of some libdems/some Labour that they can win an absolute majority (aka #SwinsonSyndrome or #CorbynComplex)
*They can't. This is the decision now: keep shouting in the wilderness or gain power with others who share your values if not your policies.
(2)
- Division in @UKLabour party, both between centre/left, & ideologues/realists.

*Both debates are frequently prioritised higher than any push to get power.
Power is the only way to forge change and having the - well, power- to implement policy.
Isn't power what it's about?

Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.

Kim Leadbeater is running against George Galloway in #BatleyAndSpen on 1st July.

He is friends with Nigel Farage, who is close friends with Katie Hopkins.

HER friends who hate LGBTQI+ people just chased and harassed Kim Leadbeater in the street in #BatleyAndSpen 😡

#VoteLabour George Galloway and Nigel F...Nigel Farage and Katie Hopkins
Katie Hopkins is friends with Milo Yiannopoulos who worked for Steve Bannon at Breitbart.

Here is George Galloway with Bannon who was Chaiman of Breitbart, hugging & celebrating May's ouster.

They're ALL #VL #ToryDictatorship👈

#BatleyAndSpenByelection
#KimLeadbeater was harassed just miles away from where her sister #JoCox was murdered by a white supremacist 5 years ago

It was a planned verbal assault by a pro-Tory gang on 'Labour' that didn't mention the Vote Leave #Islamaphobia that caused Jo's death

Since #Harper is trending, let me take this opportunity to remind everyone that 🇨🇦 is still paying a heavy price for the decade of darkness from his #CPC.

#Conservatives self-servingly claim he’s long gone from office & it’s ridiculous to invoke him. Wrong. #cdnpoli
There are too many acts of corruption, malice, subterfuge, fraud & blind ideology to possibly list in a Twitter thread. So I’ll just bring up some highlights.

1st. Harper’s secret #FIPA with China, where he sold 🇨🇦 out & tied the hands of all future Cdn governments for 31 years.
Then there was Harper & #CPC selling 🇨🇦’s Wheat Board to a conglomerate controlled by the Saudis. #cdnpoli

Praying for defeat: Labour insiders accused of wrecking #Corbyn campaign in leaked report middleeasteye.net/news/labour-pa…
The #Labour Party has launched an “urgent investigation” into a leaked internal report on antisemitism, which has revealed evidence of factionalism and alleged sabotage that took place during Jeremy #Corbyn's four-year tenure as party leader.
The 860-page report found evidence of a “hyper-factional atmosphere” at the party’s headquarters with regards to #Corbyn, who was replaced by former shadow Brexit secretary Keir #Starmer as party leader earlier this month.

🧵Hmm, notice the latest trend of manipulative bullshit coming from the #CPC? You know, where they’re suddenly pretending to be centrists caring about others because their nonstop messaging of hate & divisiveness wasn’t working? #cdnpoli
Let’s start with Mr “Barbaric Cultural Practices” himself, Stephen Harper. Harper goes around the world undermining democracies through the #IDU & supporting far right authoritarians like Muslim hating ethno-nationalists like #ViktorOrban & #NarendraModi. #cdnpoli #CPC
Next, we have #ErinOToole, who, along with all other #Conservative MP’s, except Michael Chong, voted against @iamIqraKhalid’s 2017 #Motion103 condemning #Islamophobia. Now he’s attending a vigil knowing Trudeau is away on state business? Quite a change in tune🤔. #PRscam #cdnpoli

That Leaked Labour Party Report

I have now read my way through all 851 pages of the suppressed and leaked Labour Party report on its handling of anti-semitism complaints. It is an important document, that is fundamental to understanding
major turning point in UK history, where Northern European social democracy failed to re-establish itself in the UK.
If whoever leaked the document still has access to the vast amount of original source material on which it is based, this is documentation of immense historical

British Medical Journal #BMJ says UK #government’s #COVID-19 response created “maelstrom of avoidable harm”
On Tuesday, the #BMJ (formerly, British Medical Journal ) accused the British #government of having unleashed “a maelstrom of avoidable harm,”
including the deaths of up to 150,000 people “who died earlier than they might have” as a result of its disastrous response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Executive editor Kamran #Abbasi made this damning indictment in a comment on the testimony given last week by Dominic Cummings,
former adviser to Prime Minister Boris #Johnson. His account, Abbasi writes, leads to “the inescapable conclusion… that the disastrous manner in which the #government is run is a major contributor to excess deaths in the UK, although Johnson persists with his denials.”

In Hyde Park on Saturday, Police officers were punched and kicked by right wing #antilockdown protestors

#BorisJohnson said he'd see #BodiesPiledHigh before we #lockdown again

#VoteLeave riled them up for #Brexit

It won't be the Left that storm No 10 😓
2 arrests were made. Police officers were unprepared, ill-equipped with no back-up

When the #FarRight protests #BorisJohnson and #PritiPatel send in officers in shirtsleeves. When some "woke left vegetarians protest", it's riot gear🤔

#ToryBrexitDisaster
bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
8 Police Officers were injured. With only 2 arrests made, neither were in Hyde Park.

That means the people you see punching and kicking Police Officers were allowed to walk away freely.

Couldn't we even arrest the people who injured the Police Officers?

Boris: "Let the Bodies Pile High In Their Thousands"

We need to remove The PM @BorisJohnson AND @Conservatives from No 10 Downing Street with immediate effect.

The tide has turned, now is the time to keep up the pressure!

Do not let Gove in, they hacked a referendum

#NoTories Let the bodies pile high in their thousands
You must remember this is the Daily Mail. They are the same people. They are the #Conservatives 🏧

Just when they are changing foot, we need to knock them off balance. They are trying to whitewash #ToryCorruption, Steve Bannon, Trump connection, Arcuri 👇

NEVER forget this. #DougFord has been the client of one of the most manipulative dark actors to ever operate on the Canadian political landscape: Navigator. They have coached him, planted stories in the press, shaped social media responses through inauthentic activity. #ONpoli
Remember this piece of lockstep propaganda in #cdnmedia?

Take note of who falls for #DougFord’s ridiculous crocodile tears today. The Trudeau gov’t transferred billions to Ford for #COVID19Ontario relief measures. Ford hoarded the💰instead of implementing #PaidSickDays. #ONpoli
Now that there are petitions demanding #DougFordResign, suddenly this incompetent conman can produce the #PaidSickDays that he was given federal funding to help pay for, OVER A YEAR AGO? Anyone who falls for #DougFord’s soap opera acting, is a fool, a liar or an enabler. #onpoli

Did you behave with selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty & leadership when you had sex on your sofa in your marital home with your mistress you helped get money & lied about it?

Boris Johnson: "Yes" 🤦‍♂️

#TorySleaze #ToryLiars #DowningStreet Are affairs and lying are open and honest?
Here is @paulwaugh's question about Jennifer Arcuri..

..Boris Johnson answered one word

"Yes"

The PM seems to have had the first ever affair with honesty & integrity 🤔

#TorySleaze #ToryCronyism #ToryCorruption #ToryLies #ToryHypocrisy #ToryShambles
Jennifer Arcuri says her romance with Boris Johnson - who was Mayor of London at the time – lasted from 2012 to 2016, while he was married to Marina, mother of their 4 children.

He spoke at her events & she went on to receive £126,000 of taxpayer money 😲

🧵1. Since there’s so much disinformation (ie from @jaketapper), let’s breakdown the real problems in #COVID19CA.
Mulroney sold off 70 yrs of publicly owned domestic vaccine production capacity in 🇨🇦. theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl… #cdnpoli
2. Chrétien/Martin increased R&D funding but selling off Connaught was a body blow.

Then Harper made things worse.

Not only did Harper’s #CPC gov’t cut PHAC funding by 23% (phac-aspc.gc.ca/about_apropos/… )

Harper drastically cut funding to research councils. #cdnpoli #Covid19CA
3. Enter other issues, like cronyism between #Conservatives & pharma companies.
In 2011 Harper gave a 10 yr $425.9M contract to GSK (formerly GlaxoSmithKline). It required GSK to supply at least 15 million doses a month in a pandemic once its vaccine is ready #cdnpoli #COVID19CA

A #Tory billionaire bankrolled ‘herd immunity’ #scientist who advised PM against lockdown

A #scientist who advised Boris Johnson against introducing a lockdown last autumn was bankrolled by a billionaire Tory donor, openDemocracy can reveal today.
#Johnson’s apparent U-turn decision to not impose #lockdown, which experts say may have resulted in an estimated 1.3 million extra #COVID infections, came just 24 hours after meeting with Oxford epidemiologist Sunetra #Gupta. Last Year
