1. RJNB is pleased with the government's decision to fund this research project.
We agree that this funding does not solve the systemic issues that forced #SaveClinic554 to close most of its services...…
2. ...and we are frustrated that we, and many others, have poured countless hours of protest & advocacy into trying to move the provincial government to #Axe8420 and #FundClinicAbortions.
3. The federal grant will not fund the medical services that #Clinic554 provided. But it provides funding to properly research & document abortion barriers in New Brunswick, a province that stubbornly clings to a practice of state misogyny, not least by restricting abortion.

Weed's the real winner these past couple of years, let's be honest.

Please. Please white people. Attack me for smoking weed:

1- I did 8 days for '#ReeferMadness' last summer, after getting assaulted by cops;
2- It's prescribed*, just like it is to a ton of Veterans;

*The *only* med that I have to take. Please stop telling me to take my meds, a man can only smoke so much. I want my Concerta back, but the police won't return mine and the #DECH staff won't let me register. Or wouldn't.
On that last note, I just want to point out something: if a hospital wants to get rid of a person who the staff just don't want to bother with at that time? Yeah, they escalate pre-registration for a reason.

On the docs their lawyer would use: not registered not there.

Custody hearing at 1pm AST. Curious what new slanderous claims are going to be introduced.

At our last 'meeting' with #SocialDevelopment, we were informed that someone 'worried about my son' claimed I had a firearm in the events of #ForWhatItsWorth.

Only firearm that was involved the evening of March 10th belonged to young Mister #FANCYPANTS of #FPF. They really didn't like my flashlight; the most dangerous thing I'd presented that fateful eve was my white ass-dance moves; even did a Statutory Declaration for the fools. 🤣🤘
Last night could've gone very differently for me, as a man with #ASD. The last time the cops were threatened be me, they threatened to end me and couldn't quote Law, those are common trends when dealing with scared/timid wittle predator chads, FYI.

@MichaelPSenger The fact that officials refer to these experimental Covid injections as vaccines is yet another fraud being perpetrated on the public.
@MichaelPSenger While there may be information on some obscure website, on Social Media officials are promoting these injections while keeping silent on the fact that people are actually being invited to be guinea pigs as these clinical trials are still ongoing.

[#Thread] @PastyPepper just woke me up from a dead sleep/nap. She's writing down what happened, because she was rightfully freaked the fuck out.

I was asleep, she was outside doing stuff for the house --- some asshole pulled half into our driveway and started taking pictures of her and the house -even fucking waved at her.

As soon as she took notice and tried to approach them - they peaced, she didn't even have time to get a license plate.

Fun fact? I've spent 46 more days incarcerated than @chrissaccoccia1 has. I was arrested for messing with his hateful ilk in #Fredericton 14 March...after they'd been harassing a peaceful protest, hurling racist slurs, and toting racist shit about china on boards...
I squawked my #EctoOne siren (#GhostBusters nerd & #Feniex installer, on the way to being certified) and put on my hazards.
THEN, the hateful little #Chuddies started hitting my vehicle, multiple times, one woman had a weird fascination with talking about my penis (I 𝙝𝙤𝙥𝙚 my spouse is satisfied - she was still home when I got released ✌️😉).

My demo unit? Purchased here:…

With the news of Derek Chauvin being found guilty in the murder of #GeorgeFloyd, it’s probably a good time to remember that Canada also has deep-rooted problems in policing. 🧵

#blacklivesmatter #blm Image
This starlit beating took place in Calgary in 2013.

“When the officers left him at a desolate construction site, it was –28 C with the windchill, and Addai-Nyamekye was dressed in only a tracksuit and sneakers.”

“This is where he almost ended my life,” says Addai-Nyamekye in the film, returning to the site where he was tasered and beaten.…

Okay, why is Nazi Germany, Antifa, and #FordMustResign trending?

Did @fordnation's "infect as many people as possible" policies finally start to catch up with him?

Oooh, it's because some American pro-Trump's followers were dogpiling #onpoli...

cool cool cool

#cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
Just to be clear, as of yesterday, Alberta had higher rates of new cases than Ontario.

The push by a large American pro-Trump accounts to incite anti-vax MAGAs in Canada to protest health measures is totally fine.

It’s fine. 🔥🐶☕️🔥

🧵 Far-right, anti-choice #Conservatives in public office.

This is Michael Barrett, #CPC shadow minister for “ethics”. Barrett routinely sends profoundly dishonest mail-outs to his constituents, which only occasionally get challenged by the targets of his disinformation #cdnpoli
Barrett is cut from the same broad cloth as #PierrePoilievre, Derek Sloan & other #Conservative members across 🇨🇦. All of them helped into power by far right anti-choice organizations like Campaign Life Coalition & “RightNow”. #cdnpoli #CPC
Both CLC & RightNow are far right disinformation dispensing anti-choice groups whose members oppose abortion even in the case of rape & incest. Their extremist positions even target #Conservatives with less extreme views. #cdnpoli

#ProudBoys was started by Gavin McInnes.

McInnes was a contributor to Rebel Media.

Andrew Scheer's campaign manager, Hamish Marshall, co-founded Rebel with Ezra Levant.

#ErinOToole's manager, Jeff Ballingall of #CanadaProud, worked for Levant at Sun News TV.

Rebel Media sure was Proud when they hired this boy.

Former Rebel contributor, Faith Goldy, was marching with the nazis in Charlottesville and caught the terrorist attack that killed Heather Heyer live on camera while streaming for Rebel.

Curious about the closure of Clinic 554 in Fredericton, New Brunswick? A thread: #Clinic554 #nbpoli
Clinic 554 is not an abortion clinic, as news implies. It's Private Health Care—expensive—and wants Medicare coverage. It covers transsexual/transgender health care, and also family health care, including abortions paid out-of-pocket. #Clinic554 #nbpoli…
And if abortions are the only service keeping a Transgender health clinic open, there are bigger questions to be asked. #Clinic554 #nbpoli…

Sad news in #NewBrunswick tonight. Another anti-choice RW bigot got elected again.

Was it a fair election? Were there outside influence campaigns being run? #nbelection2020 #nbpoli
Hmmm, so apparently lots of people in non-Con ridings didn’t receive a voter registration card. 🤔

Given the fact that Ford, Kenney, Harper, etc etc, cheated & committed acts of fraud to win, someone ought to do some digging into #nbelection2020.

Like I was saying about #NewBrunswick re-electing a RW bigot. #nbelection2020 #nbpoli #cdnpoli

Early polls here in #NewBrunswick has Higgs' PC in the lead. 25 seats needed to win majority. Currently leading or elected in 27 ridings.

#cdnpoli #nbpoli Image
CBC calls the election for the PC party.

Now it's just a matter of whether or not they get a majority or minority.

#cdnpoli #NBpoli Image
Conservative strategist on TV lying about Higgs not wanting the election. Oh, no. He just demanded that all other parties agree to keep him in power for 2 years. They offered to guarantee until March and reassess. That wasn't good enough for Higgs and he blamed elxn on Vickers. Image

As we head to the finish line in #nbpoli there are all sorts of guesses and interpretations of the polling we are seeing, and predictions. FWIW, here's what I'm looking at to get a sense of what to watch on election night.
1. First of all -- don't buy the posturing of those who say "polls mean nothing". If you use them right, you'll know more. What we remember as polling misses are usually (a) late trends that continued after polls went dark or (b) people mistaking the CW they remember for polls
2. A big part is to avoid getting caught up in any one poll. Sure, right now Libs love EKOS and PCs are all debunking it. But smart prognosticators look at the commonalities and averages -- any one poll can miss something, but they rarely all miss. NB polling has commonalities.

It has been an honour to serve the people of Memramcook-Tantramar for the last 2 years.

I've been proud to stand up for you on local issues — from the protecting Memramcook Institute, to saving Clinic 554, to supports for workers & small businesses during the pandemic. #nbpoli

Political announcements today:
Liberals in St. Stephen, Kevin Vickers is promising to balance the books "as soon as possible."

Liberals also have an announcement coming up in Saint John at 1:00.

PC's in Oromocto:
-increase salary of trained early childhood educators from $16 to $19 by 2023.
-make food programs available in every school starting next school year.

Blaine Higgs also reacted to Kevin Vickers' announcement re: balancing the books.

He says because he doesn't have any new taxes/tax increases planned -- he plans to rely on economic gains. So - can't promise a timeline until he knows more about the recovery in NB.

My brother and I went to vote yesterday. We were joking before we went that it didn’t matter how he voted because as a white, middle class, educated male he would be fine regardless of who is elected. For me, a disabled female, the results of this election are crucial.
For the last four months I have been fortunate enough to live with my parents. Up until the last month I’ve barely left my house because, like many people with disabilities, I have no idea how COVID-19 will affect me. For us it simply isn’t worth the risk.
I went to vote to ensure that people with disabilities aren’t forgotten as restrictions begin to lift and everyone else moves into the “new normal”. And I did vote. But the HOW is completely unacceptable.

Today: David Coon announced, if elected, he would allow a designated family caregiver for nursing home residents, someone trained in covid protocols who could visit their loved one more often.

PC candidate/social development minister Dorothy Shephard responded to that...
She said nursing homes will "hear some news today that they can begin to start having intentional visitors that will be designated for each family member."

#nbpoli @CTVAtlantic
I just spoke to the NB Association of Nursing Homes. They have not received communication that a change has been made yet.

They say David Coon's model is similar to one in Ontario, that existed before COVID. Dorothy Shephard's model is similar to one in PEI.
