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.

If everyone who said “I like the NDP but they’ll never win so I’m voting Liberal”, actually voted @NDP, they would actually win.

In most elections the NDP gets a minimum of 15-20%. You only need about 30% support to win and the Liberals usually get 25-40%. #cdnpoli #NDP
Its simple math that if only about 1 in 3 Liberals voted NDP, the NDP would actually win a federal election. If half of Liberal voters backed the NDP they’d be in a guaranteed majority government. #cdnpoli #NDP
And that’s not even counting the Green vote who could be inclined to vote NDP for reasons like the NDP opposing oil pipelines, investing in renewables and campaigning on electoral reform. #cdnpoli #NDP

Ladies and gentlemen (and #Peoplekind), it's time for round 2 of #QP, #SNCLavalin version.

Before we get started.
1. Fridays have an earlier #QuestionPeriod, and a smaller group of MPs.
2. PM #Trudeau is not in the House.
3. Former AG Wilson-Raybould has not been seen so far.
If you want to watch live, #QuestionPeriod can be found on @CPAC_TV on your cable subscription.

What's happening now is called "Member's Statements". This allows MPs from all Parties to make a one minute statement on anything they want.
Note for any possible first-time watchers. MPs are not allowed to use names in the House, and instead have to say things like "The Minister of XXX" or "The Member from XXX" or even "My Honourable Friend" - an old #Harper Favourite. #QP #SNCLavalin

💥 THREAD 💥 #NeverNDP (1 of 13)

The #ON #NDP are not the answer. #Horwath as failed time and again. I have no idea why the party has kept her in this long. This will be her 4th? 5th? loss. It's a very dumb party. Any other party would have replaced her after the 2nd loss. ...2
Don't believe what you read/hear about @fordnation! Slanderous lies and fake narratives that everyone just runs with; even the media.

He's not a drug dealer. For heaven-sake! Ridiculous lies. Did he sell weed when he was 18? Who knows. F%ck, it was the 80s. Who didn't? 😜 ...3
He loved his brother. He tried so hard to help him; to protect him. Rob (a great guy) was mentally ill. An addict. At the lowest point in his life. And the media (the Toronto Star mostly) completely butchered him. What he needed was compassion. ...4

10 minutes late to #SECU and it's moving fast. Catching up. For those following, clause 109 of #c59 #cdnpoli
Conservative motion, similar to with #CSE, asking #CSIS to report annually on the costs incurred due to oversight. Both #NDP & #Liberals argue that this creates a new administrative burden. #NDP argues could be used to try & undermine new review & oversight bodies
Motion fails

Back at #SECU for the next round of votes on Bill #C59, in time to see the #NDP motion to give the Intelligence Commissioner powers to go beyond simply saying "yes" or "no" on authorizations be voted down. #cdnpoli
Next Liberal motion, also proposed by Greens, is to ask the #IC to publish decisions not only when rejecting an authorization, but also in approving it (something @ICLMG is in favour of). Passes.
NDP motion that would allow IC to ask for additional information, rather than saying "yes" or "no" to an authorization. Notes that the current #CSE commissioner suggested this amendment #C59 #secu

Wow. I always figured his legacy was just destroying Manitoba through your decimation of Hydro
"The party of facilitated abuse against women"
Note quite the NDP scam you sold for 16 years is it?

@MichelleRempel
I assume you'll continue to sit in the leg doing nothing but collecting a cheque
Sadly @Brian_Pallister has decided to not make you accountable for anything including Crocus and your role in it, which is why we have trouble getting investors

1 of those complainants was Joëlle Saltel-Allard, Struthers's former press secretary. She said her boss's behaviour was well-known among staff, who nicknamed him "Minister Tickles" behind his back
