🚨 MOST REGRETTABLY, some Canadian politicians have chosen to affix the label of 'terrorism' before the investigation has made any such determination.

This is one example.

such a statement made by Members of Parliament, who are persons in authority, is at the very least premature and not appropriate.

AS A FORMER #RCMP (Ret’d), I am concerned about such statements being made by ANY politician.

RISKING SERIOUS UNDERSTATEMTN, they are at best inappropriate, and could even be viewed as an attempt to otherwise ‘direct’ [italics] the course and/or outcome of an investigation.

AS AN INVESTIGATOR, I was always mindful of and exercised vigilance with respect to my responsibilities to never cause to bring the administration of justice into disrepute.

MOST REGRETTABLY, such statements can carry the taint of political interference. The appropriate

police agency with jurisdiction - @lpsmediaoffice (and possibly with assistance of @rcmpgrcpolice) will and must assess the evidence without any regard for such statements. I have every confidence that they will do just that.

#Canada L'assaillant de 20 ans a utilisé son véhicule pour s'en prendre à cette famille. L'enquête ne fait que commencer mais le chef de la police locale évoque des indices suggérant un acte prémédité et ciblé, motivé par la haine.
#Canada Du côté du Premier Ministre Trudeau, on n'a pas hésité à qualifier l'attaque de #London contre une famille de confession musulmane d'acte terroriste.

A polling firm linked to #Brexiteer Nigel #Farage faces scrutiny over a short-lived company that its owner used to do political work for Farage’s party and the 12 million-pound ($15.5 million) campaign he fronted to leave the European Union, according to records and interviews.
As part of a broader probe, investigators for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office are seeking details behind more than £186,000s in payments made by #Farage’s U.K. #Independence Party (#UKIP) to an entity established by the head of the polling firm Survation.

The Peoples #NHS Forever
JOHN DAVID HOPPER·SUNDAY, MAY 30, 2021·
#NHS chiefs have been denied the facility of utilising 8,000 extra emergency private hospital beds, because Matt #Hancock failed to renew contracts.
This incompetence of the Health Secretary means that the struggling NHS faces being overwhelmed by Covid admissions. Last Thursday night, a record 37,475people were in hospital in England, with the virus – This equates to about a third of the total patient capacity.
With 100,000 #NHS staff currently on sick leave, half of them with Covid. NHS doctors pleaded, for help from these Independent Hospitals, during the worst point in NHS history. However, none was forthcoming, because the special crisis deals, had expired last month.

Please find a 'copy' of the Rev' F.L.Donaldson letter/reply to such smears, showing his barely hidden contempt for the Times journalist:
"Donaldson to the Editor of The Times, published 22 June 1905 [drafted 19 June 1905]
Sir. I trust you will allow me to reply to some of the seriously inaccurate statements in your leading article of Monday upon the pilgrimage to London of the Leicester unemployed. We reached #Leicester yesterday, Sunday 18th, and this is the first chance I have had of writing
1. You say that ‘such a walk will always be attractive to the restless, the shiftless or the simpletons among the unemployed or unemployable’. The terrible implication of these words, in regard to our Leicester men, is obvious.

Standing up for our rights to protest:
Amazon.co.uk: Boyd, Joseph:
With only weeks to go before the House of Commons hears its third reading on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill 2021, the importance and timing of this book
couldn’t be more vital. Through the remarkable true-life story of Joe Boyd, environmental campaigner from #Liverpool who joined the anti-fracking frontlines across Northern England from 2013, we gain a fresh perspective and clear, substantial evidence of a war on #protest rights.

Questions.... Need answers ...
If you still believe in the mainstream narrative, I have a few questions for you that I genuinely cannot answer:
Explain how the nation can be brainwashed with the #Indian variant by Government and mainstream and then for it to be all suddenly pulled from existence at the Indian Government's request, saying its a #lie?? 🥴
Explain how the #flu disappeared but has been replaced with something which has the EXACT same symptoms.
Explain why they downgraded "#Covid-19" from a high consequential infectious disease days before they declared a #pandemic.

*New research* 1/10: We're very pleased to announce #London's first non-commercial #cargobike policy report 'Sharing the Load'. View or download the report here:👉farecity.org/2021/05/20/sha…
2/10. What are Cargo Bikes? For the study, cargo bikes are defined by the two most common types. First, is the ‘box bike’, which has a platform, or box, between the rider and the front wheel(s). Second, are the ‘mid’ and ‘long-tails’, which feature a regular riding position
3/10. The commercial & communal role: Cargo bikes are more efficient than motor vehicles as they are able to access more routes, are less likely to be stuck in traffic and are easier to park. Their versatility makes them a perfect fit for the hyperlocal nature of communal tasks

Kanzlerkandidatin @Die_Gruenen @ABaerbock hat nachweislich keinen Bachelor-Abschluss an der Uni #Hamburg, entgegen den Behauptungen z.B. @boell_stiftung oder @SZ. SZ hat dies erst kürzlich korrigieren müssen. #Baerbock hat bis 2004 in HH studiert, BA gibt es dort erst seit 2005!
In HH konnte man wie gesagt bis 2004 Politikwissenschaft nur auf Magister, Diplom oder Staatsexamen studieren. Da @ABaerbock angibt, PW als Haupt- & Öffentliches Recht als Nebenfach studiert zu haben, bleibt nur Diplom. Es gibt aber keine Diplom-Abschlussarbeit unter ihrem Namen.
#Baerbock sollte klären, wie sie ohne einen Abschluss an der Uni Hamburg, ein Studium an der LSE in #London aufnehmen konnte. Denkbar wäre, dass ihr das LSE ausnahmsweise ein Master-Studium ohne vorherigen Studienabschluss ermöglicht hat, wäre aber ziemlich einmalige Ausnahme...

Did you know we sometimes use drones at incidents? Using drones helps increase our situational awareness of fires and helps our Incident Commanders to develop tactics to tackle them london-fire.gov.uk/about-us/servi…
Our drones are permitted to fly up to 400ft above ground level, or higher in an emergency, and can fly as fast as 50mph. They can also act as a loudspeaker to give instructions or reassurance and shine a bright spotlight in dark or low light conditions
Our drone team took just nine months to become operational. In 2018, a bespoke course was run to train our team of drone pilots who were qualified within one week. We now have eight drone pilots who are available 24/7

A polling firm linked to #Brexiteer Nigel #Farage faces scrutiny over a short-lived company that its owner used to do political work for Farage’s party and the 12 million-pound ($15.5 million) campaign he fronted to leave the European Union, according to records and interviews.
As part of a broader probe, investigators for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office are seeking details behind more than £186,000s in payments made by Farage’s U.K. #Independence Party (UKIP) to an entity established by the head of the polling firm Survation.
UKIP leaders have been fighting the demand for that information, and other details related to political operations, for almost a year, including in court.
The fact that the inquiry is looking at what role Survation may have played hasn’t been previously reported.

The company that made the cladding panels used on #Grenfell Tower did not tell certifiers about a “disastrous” failed fire test on one of its products despite being “legally obliged” to do so,
the inquiry into the fire has heard.
Claude Schmidt, the president of Arconic’s French arm, denied the test results were “deliberately concealed”, but agreed the omission amounted to a “misleading half truth” during proceedings on Wednesday.
He agreed the firm was “legally obliged” to share the 2004 test “5B” data
for its Reynobond PE (polyethylene) cassette product with certifiers and agreed it was a matter of “absolutely crucial safety information”.
The panels came in two differently shaped variants – cassette and rivet.
But cassette, which was fitted on the west #London high-rise block

Third of ex-council homes ....now owned by rich landlords mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/r…
The multi-millionaire son of a #Tory minister who presided over the controversial “right-to -buy” scheme is a buy-to-let landlord owning scores of former #council flats.

A Daily Mirror investigation found a third of ex-council homes sold in the 1980s under Margaret #Thatcher
were now owned by private landlords.
In one #London borough almost half of ex-#council properties are now sub-let to tenants.

Tycoon Charles #Gow and his wife own at least 40 ex-#council flats on one South #London estate.
His father Ian #Gow was one of Mrs #Thatcher’s top aides
