1/ As #cdnmedia *now* talks to Conservative caucus members, they must interrogate their #elxn2021 coverage. When O’Toole presented himself so contrary to his leadership run, the current & not so fmr #CPC & platform. Did it not occur to reporters to investigate what was real?
2/ I know #cdnmedia think Liberals are hostile to journalism who can’t tolerate Trudeau criticism. There is *some* truth to this. But lots of our complaints are legit & r made in good faith. Most of Liberal Twitter has closely followed Trump’s America in horror, as Cdn media has.
3/ The diff btwn #cdnmedia & those who reg use the #, is we don’t believe #Conservatives & #Republicans are light yrs apart. Like the CPC caucus—we know O’Toole’s #Elxn44 campaign wasn’t representative of majority of Cons (elected or base) Nor resembled how EOT would govern as PM

During this election, I’ve seen a ton of hypocrisy and dishonesty in #ConservativeParty attacks, and compiled some of this
#cpc claim: the cons never wanted this “vanity election.”
Picture: #otoole was demanding it for months #elxn44vote
#cpc claim: Trudeau bought the media and it was all biased for him.
Picture: most media in Canada is heavily biased in favour of the conservatives, and has been for years.
#cpc claim: they are against negative adds and condemned #trudeau for supposedly using some.
Picture: a still from the first Con party add of the election, which featured Trudeau’s face photoshopped on a little girl from Willy Wonka, but got pulled for copyright infringement

I tuned in to the interfaith Beaches-East York debate. It's one of the few which decided to give the PPC candidate a platform. I won't tweet the whole thing but maybe some things that jump out.
One thing the PPC candidate started with was that he is new to politics and he apologizes in advances for not being politically correct. *people nodding their heads* It's frightening that people think this is reasonable.
Now the PPC candidate is saying "too much equality will mean socialism, marxism, etc." something something govt handouts, people need to survive on their own means and be resilient. 🙄

I received this disappointing email from @FairVoteCanada dedicating paragraphs to my #LPC MP for his "action" on electoral reform. The thing is, he was elected on this promise, & it was a lie. He continues to run for & support this party who will not implement ER. Image
They gave 2 lines to the candidates who are running for parties that will implement ER. So which is it @FairVoteCanada? Do you want us to support complicity or vote for change? #Elxn44 #cdnpoli
they give him kudos for asking his govt to apologize for this. No. I don't want an apology. I want to vote in people who will make it happen. That should have been the focus of their email.

Already so tired of the “undecided voter” trope.

#Elxn44 #LeadersDebate
The bias from the moderator is already ridiculous. “You inspire people” she says to Jagmeet, then complains in her q that Trudeau “plunged the country” into an election. No minority government has ever lasted more than 2 years. We should vote mid winter?
#Elxn44   #LeadersDebate
OMG!!! O’Toole pretending to be a “pro choice ally”. Meanwhile he would have 14 rabid far right anti choice extremists in his cabinet. Unbelievable! #OTooleIsALiar

On the eve of advance voting I wanted to share some of my thoughts on this election. #Debate2021
I won't list the 6 years of lies, corruption, inablity to deliver on 'promises', divisiveness & folly driven by @liberal_party in HOC & on the world stage. You all know that. 1/2
All of the antics of the #LPC is well documented. What has been weighing on my mind is how wasted the last 6 years have been. Instead of moving Canada ahead & building this country to greater success, the #LPC has squandered the time on games & to the loss of Cdn families 1/3
and business/commerce. Never in 62 years have I seen such disregard for all that we have,or had as the case may be.

So as we head to the polls, pause & really think of your future, your families future & the future of #Canada . Is the #CPC perfect. No. But I have seen many 1/4

This is a thread about Donor Lists in the upcoming #yyc municipal elections. This thread contains original research based off of the donor lists enclosed by @JeffDavisonYYC, @JeromyYYC and @JyotiGondek
#yyccc #yycvote
First, I just want to say a couple of things:
1.Political Campaigns are expensive and the rules imposed by the UCP have made it difficult for candidates. If you find a good candidate, please consider supporting them financially or with your time.
2.Candidates have no control over who donates to them. Receiving a donation from someone does not mean that the candidate supports that person.

1. The deliberate countrywide organized vandalism of #LPC candidates signs, reminds me of an operation carried out in West Germany by the KGB in 1959.

@RidT wrote about this op in his book Active Measures. #cdnpoli #Elxn44
2. The KGB spotted that Germany had a lingering problem with antisemitism. It was only 14 years after the holocaust. So the KGB mounted an op where they committed fake acts of antisemitic hate crimes. Painting swastikas on Jewish graves, defacing buildings etc. The KGB’s plan….
3….was intended to bring out real antisemitic hate crimes. The KGB committed the fake hate crimes to encourage a wave of antisemitic activity that would tarnish West Germany’s attempts to rebuild its reputation.

The deliberate act of organized vandalism of #LPC signs….#Elxn44

I've been thinking a lot about the fact that Friday's #LPC campaign event was cancelled for safety reasons.

We've seen a glimpse of some frustration with the Prime Minister in our own door knocking, but thankfully not such vicious hostility. /1

cbc.ca/news/politics/…
As Trudeau said: "we need to meet that anger with compassion." I would add that we also need to meet that anger firmly with the facts.
We can understand and address vaccine hesitancy, and we need to ensure that those with valid medical exemptions are accommodated. But we can't accept anti-science conspiracy theories or the language of "medical apartheid" (a phrase I heard at the door the other day).

1/5 🧵#CDNpoli #Polling #Elxn44

I see many of you were excited by the polls today, so here's a few things you #NeedToKnow about polls

First, all pollsters exhibit bias & it's measured enough to constitute a graph. Here's one from the 2015 election to give you some example:
2/5 🧵#CDNpoli #Polling #Elxn44

Watching polls throughout an election is a fool's game. It may provide insight at a given moment but it isn't until the final stretch that it may be indicative. Much can happen & a #LeadersDebate can change everything (click photo to see tail end)
3/5 🧵#CDNpoli #Polling #Elxn44

Next, the #338PollAggregator contains every bias from every pollster, as demonstrated in the photo from (1/5) in this thread. With that said, they currently list an exact tie between Libs & Cons, with NDP ranking lower than the poll released today

You can tell these apart from the old ones, which I recommend you update to, because the font is different. They also say, *NEW* 2021 ELECTION (easy right?).

Thread/ How do you trick a country into accepting Totalitarianism by manipulating health data?

There are only two questions that really matter in the forthcoming Canadian election: 1) were the Lockdowns & other authoritarian measures justified, & 2) are we really in a Pandemic?
Lesson Plan: How to fake a Pandemic, dismantle Democracy, obliterate the Social Contract, & implement an Authoritarian form government with unprecedented levels of top-down control.
1) Create a category of death of ‘with' COVID that only requires a positive COVID “test” irrespective of the ACTUAL cause of death - typically from serious comorbid conditions. Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director - Illinois Dept. of Public Health explains in this video from April 2020:

Which "experts" are you citing reg Bill C-10, @JohnBarlowMP?

#cdnpoli #QP
Yet #MagaBergen is totally fine with Harper appointing Vance. Back then they were just rumours so no biggie!

#cdnpoli #QP
Didn't the Liberals recently table a budget, @gerarddeltell? Or did I just dream that? B/c, according to the #CPC the most important issue in Canada right now is Harper appointed Vance.

What did @ErinOToole know in 2015, Gerard?

I DEMAND to know!

🧵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

This series encapsulates the better arguments for an Independent Alberta. It seeks to explain why this movement is gaining significant strength. With thanks to the many, many authors who have written on this subject previously.
1. 1905 – Alberta was constructed as a colony for Central Canada. Haultain recognized this in his opposition to the division of Buffalo; “permanently render the Great NW into an unwilling, inferior and imperfect member of Confederation.”
2. The culture of Alberta – a low tax, small gov’t, business-friendly, self-sufficient, personal responsibility approach to governing as compared to an increasingly socialist, globalist, highly regulated, controlling + highly taxed environment being created by the #LPC in #ROC.

1/7 The key question is: will the firearms bill announced yesterday make Canadians more safe? The answer is no. #canpoli #publicsafety #firearms
2/7 Nearly 500 shootings in Toronto last yr. Near record yr (despite existing gun ban & lockdwns) & vast majority by gangs- with illegal guns. Bill C-21 muni power & confiscation-in-place program only targets already law abiding firearms owners.
3/7 #CPC opposes the OiC & the confiscation of firearms from law abiding, licensed owners. How can #LPC actually not have brought forward compensation details while prohibiting use, transfer, transport, or sale?

WITHOUT ANY EXAGGERATION, reaction to a Tweet by @MarkGerretsen has been (very) strong and overwhelming negative.

For someone who infrequently visits Twitter and who usually confines himself largely to #LPC talking points, he generally garners a dozen or so comments ...

can make their own judgement. Suffice it to say, CDNs want Members of Parliament with emotional maturity. A modicum of humility is also seen as desirable.

GERRETSEN read from a statement [11:21:18 - 11:35:53] delineating @liberal_party argument against the Motion by @karen_vecchio.

Following his reading, GERRETSEN interjected upon @ToddDohertyMP with (supposed) Point of Order [11:51:28]. Taking umbrage at remarks of DOHERTY,

GERRETSEN denied his statement had been prepared by PMO.

To that point, GERRETSEN had an obvious prolonged struggle with the syntax and choice of (his own) words [11:35:01].

A Liberal MP has garnered some unexpected national media attention over his "anguished committee speech" (@hollyanndoan via @mindingottawa).

AND,his defensiveness quickly boiled over, unravelling into a (cringeworthy) rant by the MP Kingston and the Islands.

To the (undoubted) chagrin of @MarkGerretsen and his @liberal_party colleagues, this story doesn't lend itself readily to vetting.

Mr. GERRETSEN embarked immediately on defensive pushback against any inclusion of #WECharity [17:13:50-17:18:12], even accusing all the Opposition of "conspiring in advance" [17:45:50] as "an opportunity to dig up some dirt. I know they're [#CPC] are looking for this silver

Even Achilles had his heel, so too #TRUDEAU like everyone has his weak spot.

What one can see here sustained during an interminable 5 seconds of silence (0:16 - 0:21) is the expression of dominance and bold defiance.

Sue Grafton, an American author, made this observation:
In the coming weeks, @JustinTrudeau @liberal_party will (desperately) attempt to 'flip the script' and lay the groundwork for a major reset. #TRUDEAU #LPC are gambling that CDNs «DON'T» and «WON'T» care about #Ethics #Corruption, and in particular, #WEscandal.

We'll see. Image
The "NEW and AMBITIOUS plan" | "BOLD NEW direction for Canada" must be so over-the top as to pull away any and all oxygen from the still smouldering embers of #WEscam.

If Liberals fail, they will be consumed by the resulting conflagration.

Pierre Poilievre is the most repugnant human in #Canada.

Watching the #DemocraticConvention gives me hope.

Time to put these Cons and Republicans into the dustbin of history.

ENOUGH with the hate, division and negativity!

The #CPC lays out it's plan to get #Canada's economy back on track after #Covid19!

...Oh, sorry. It's just #PigeonPierre ranting and raving about bullshit again.

#PigeonPierre is proud of his collection and is doing a Liddle' "show and tell" for all of us!

He wants the "5000 documents" to be #Canada's "But her emails!" - or, at least, Harper does.

Thank you, @JenicaAtwin, for your wonderful speech calling for better care for the elderly and those living with disabilities. Also calling for better decorum and less partisan politics in the #HoC.

Anyone want to guess how this member from the #CPC responded?

#cdnpoli Image
Hey, @blainecalkinsmp, you gonna rhyme about how, before #Covid19, 70% of Canada's total national debt was added up under the previous 2 Conservative governments?

Or are you just gonna lie and act like a child?
