@JustinTrudeau the #brownface video incident is more serious than the two photos because it was not theatrical in nature. I am disappointed, but not surprised, given your testimony in Common Ground #cdnpoli #LPC
From your autobiography, it is clear that the person you are now is radically different from the person you were in your teens and twenties when the #brownface incidents occurred. The deaths of your brother and father (may they RIP) truly changed you #cdnpoli #cdnmedia #LPC
You found solice and peace in religion which enabled you to assist your devastated mother during her breakdown. Accepting God and meeting Sophie changed you from the angry and directionless youth you had been in your teens and 20s to the man are today #cdnpoli #LPC #cdnmedia

Trudeau has emerged, is now speaking, but is talking more frankly about how he "didn't understand the racist history of blackface"...so he has now articulated the word blackface, not "makeup".. and racist in the same sentence.
Trudeau says it is never acceptable to darken one's face.
First q about how many times has he darkened his skin with makeup?
Trudeau says he "shared the moments that I recollected."
says he now "appreciates calling it makeup, it was blackface. it was not right."
Trudeau says he did not see the truth of how racist it was "because of the layers of privilege" he comes from, and now realizes it will never be acceptable to wear blackface when there are people out there who live every day confront racism.

Environment Canada removed 70 years of recorded weather data from its climate change website climatedata.ca
For the period 1950-2005 the Canadian Govt uses climate modeling instead the actual temperature readings to prove climate change
#ClimateBrawl #mckennamustgo
All data from 1850 to 1949 was deleted after Environment Canada concluded it did not like the data
For the period 1950-2005 observed data is not used but 24 computer simulations is the data set
The historical data at EC is not observed historical data it is modeled historic data
The highest recorded temp from every Province (except BC) is omitted at climatedata.ca

Liberal Party still hasn't answered questions about why it took so long for them to deliberate over what to do with Guillet (they were notified of the posts by Jewish organizations in June). #cdnpoli #LPC
Guillet told reporters that the Liberal Party was willing to allow him to run despite his comments and came up with an action plan that included outreach to the Jewish community #cdnpoli #LPC #elxn43
The Liberal Party tells me that their decision on Mr. Guillet is final, they will not reconsider him as a candidate. Guillet said he still hoped to run for the Liberals. That won't happen #cdnpoli #LPC #elxn43

.@PierrePoilievre raises a point of order asking for the document that Liberal MP Steve MacKinnon is referencing an analysis of saying thousands of jobs were on the line. MacKinnon says he has no such document to table #cdnpoli #ETHI #SNCLavalin
@PierrePoilievre MacKinnon then slams Poilievre for having little experience in the private sector. MacKinnon clearly getting annoyed by Opposition points of order and complains. Committee Chair says it's his job to determine Points of Order. Terse exchange #cdnpoli #ETHI #SNCLavalin
@PierrePoilievre Now the MP I am most interested to hear from, Liberal @beynate who says he AGREES the Ethics Commissioner should be invited to testify, breaking party rank. Erskine-Smith is clear he thinks the Ethics Commissioner made legal errors though and wants to ask qs #cdnpoli #SNCLavalin

"Conservatives just won't take yes for an answer ... " - #Trudeau.

Exactly. As I keep saying: Nothing pisses Conservatives off more than #Canada's success under the #Liberals.

#Scheer is throwing quite the hissy-fit here today during #QP. Never seen his dimples so red. #cdnpoli
Wow. #WeakAndy, red in the face and sweating sure is making good use of that there Parliamentary Privilege today. Everything he's said so far is halve-truths and bullshit. I think I saw steam shooting out his dimples.

#cdnpoli #QP
Ahh, poor little @CandiceBergenMP is still triggered over #Trudeau's xmas trip in 2016. HE TOOK A HELICOPTER RIDE THAT DIDN'T COST CANADIAN TAX PAYERS! Oh no! #LOL #cdnpoli #QP

I listened to Scheers economic vision so you don’t have to! Key points:

1. Dudes about as inspiring as a toothbrush.

2. Typical Trudeau bashing, says Trudeau inherited a great economy from Cons and squandered it. Truth is we were in a technical recession. 😂

#cdnpoli #LPC
P2

3. Commits to a Coast to Coast “energy corridor”. The endless pipelines are coming! Greens and NDP will hang their hat on electoral reform and allow this! 👌🏻😂

4. Cancel carbon tax (calls it a tax grab, but its revenue neutral so ya) 😂

5. End responsible shipping ban BC
P3

6. Repeal C-69, aimed at responsible oversight and consultation for energy projects

7. Massive Regulatory reform to make it easier to pollute and degrade our environment, and people

8. End foreign imports of oil, doubling down on building massive plant and oil commerce

@CanuckTraveler People seem to forget that #CPC have a large voting base. #Canada is made up of a very centrist voting public, meaning, they lean left & right. They DO NOT lean far left. They DO NOT vote NDP, EVER! To think they will, is hubris & shows serious naivety. #cdnpoli
#Ontario #CPC government is not even trying to work with the Federal #LPC government. Why, they don’t care about the people of #Ontario this is a fact. They are so busy taking away our rights & healthcare, & forcing propaganda onto the people of Ontario. #cdnpoli #onpoli
If we don’t start fighting back, if we don’t start uniting under the #LIBERAL #LPC government WE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING CANADIANS CHERISH, OUR VERY FOUNDATIONS OF OUR RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY WILL BE GONE! #cdnpoli #onpoli #abpoli

Thread: It's an issue so big, we have to try to make sure all our relations are aware. I don't know how many people are understanding truly what Trudeau's Indigenous Rights Framework is. ...2/

#NativeTwitter #Indigenous #cdnpoli
2/... This is what previous Indig leadership had been fighing against for decades. There are so many Chiefs signing onto this for their people. I don't understand how they can do this if they honestly understand what that paper means for all of their generations to follow. ...3/
3/...That Framework offers a lot of money today - big words about 'self-determination' and privatizing reserves for "self-generating revenue". That's community property now, as was once all of what's Canada now, what's now called "Crown lands". ...4/

@EmmMacfarlane Let’s count the ways that Harper affected Canada
1. He showed disdain for parliamentary rules and procedures and even lied in HOC.
2. He prorogued parliament twice in order not to face the animosity of HOC
3. He restricted access to information on a scale hitherto unheard of. (1)
@EmmMacfarlane 4. SH muzzled scientists preventing them from presenting results that were inconvenient.
5. MOST egregiously he closed at least 16 research libraries that contained irreplaceable data on environment & had irreplaceable data thrown on dumpsters and burned.

huffingtonpost.ca/capt-trevor-gr…
@EmmMacfarlane 6. SH reversed environmental protections and essentially withdrew Canada from the Kyoto agreement
7. He promoted harsher penalties for young offenders and increased funding for prisons while reducing funding for rehabilitation programs.

Mega Thread of Opinion (1 of 52)

My take on #Election2019, is one that will surprise all #Canadians who will take the #time to read past this #headline. It will be a #long #series of #tweets that will be #purely #honest & straight to the #point.
This #series of tweets will contain #jabs at #voters, the #media & our #political #parties & they are #jabs, that in my own #opinion are #merited. Agree or don’t agree, I won’t care, but it needs to be said to ease my conscience in the lead up to our election!
In 2015, Canada’s #media, declared that #Trudeau & .@liberal_party outflanked the @NDP on leftist policies & for the 1st time in recent history the media supported large deficits & destruction of our country’s finances over a more balanced approach. Let’s stop here for a sec.

We’re ready to go. #BurnabySouth

Some people think #ProportionalRepresentation will result in government backroom deals - the kind we didn't vote for.

But that's no byproduct of #ProRep. I know that because we have that *now* with our #WinnerTakeAll voting system, although its mostly invisible.
I can provide a case study on the backroom deal I am *very* familiar with: the 2015 Liberal Electoral Reform promise.

I made a film to help Liberal friends get Resolution 31 (they wrote) adopted at the LPC policy Convention prior to the 2015 election.
As @BardishKW said, "In 2014 the Liberal Party voted overwhelmingly to endorse what has become our Electoral Plank."

LPC members voted *overwhelmingly* for the process.

Candidate @RajSainiMP explained how it would be done.

In QP today Conservative Veterans Affairs Critic @Phil4Brant bring up @globalnews story on Capt Kimberly Fawcett. McColeman notes Fawcett deployed twice and asks "When will the Libs do the right thing and cover the cost" #cdnpoli #QP #KimFawcett #veterans #CAF
Defence Minister @HarjitSajjan "I want to thank Capt Fawcett for her service to her country" (opposition MPs groan), Sajjan "we are committed to making sure he gets the support he needs" Opposition MPs "SHE!!!" #cdnpoli #CAF #veterans #QP #KimFawcett
Min Sajjan "sorry, my apologies she. But due to the complexity of the decisions that were made some time ago, this uh file is uh complex, however we will make sure that not only she has the right support but we work through the complexity to do right" #cdnpoli #veterans #QP

1 of 80) Please bear with me, because the following is filled with plenty of foul language & I'm taking off the professional mask to speak with you as a human being. I've had enough & I've hit my limit, putting up with all the #MeToo bullshit in #CDNpoli, #ONpoli, & #CDNmedia
2) For the past 2 years, you've been ruining my #FamilyDay because the lot of you picked this holiday to shove an alleged child molester down my throat. It's the ultimate in sick behaviour & your choice of holiday is astounding, to champion the cause of #ChildPorn in #CDNpoli
3) What's worse is that forcing me to say those words actually makes me appear like I'm out-to-lunch. Your outrageous acts of gaslighting, censorship, & obstruction, have made it impossible for anyone to tell the most important #MeToo story in #CDNpoli currently
