#SouthAfrica will never 'un-ban' sale of tobacco -

Here's why:

UN Sustainable Dev. Goals explicitly demands it.

Our recent IMF Loan has sealed our fate via the requirements of the World Bank/UN - if we allow tobacco sales, our loan falls thru, SA UN cadres lose their payday
South Africa's UN Sustainable development goals for HEALTH:

World Health Org Framework Convention on Tobacco Control - part of the Agenda 2030 intenion to ban all tobacco sales worldwide:

THREAD: Nora and I have a new episode out about what's next. And I want to take a minute to address something that comes up in the episode.

We are witnessing quite possibly the largest social movement in our lifetime with the continued protests against anti-Black racism all over the globe. @BLM_TO has personally received support requests from the UK, Finland, Belgium, Australia, and Brazil.
In Canada, we're trying to track where all the demos are happening (currently mapped on the front page of defundthepolice.org). We have what we know is an incomplete list, with over 60 cities in every province and territory in Canada. I've never seen anything like it.

This #AutismTownhall with @ASDalliance is already so embarassing. Autistic people. How hard is that to say?!

#cdnpoli #ActuallyAutistic #AutismAcceptance #NationalAutismStrategy
@JudySgroMP says " children afflicted with it"
And that until she met an autistic kid in parl, she had not thought about any of this. Why is she a leader on this?

....afflicted. #Ableism #NationalAutismStrategy
@MikeLakeMP says province deals with most autism issues but his son makes him think about diagnosis, early intervention, focusing on skills/abilities, employment and housing.

Then...implies DOOM when parents of autistic kids "are gone" ? Also uses PFL.

1/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

I accept several followers may block me after this statement, but that doesn't make it any less important to confront partisans with the truth, or spark debate when a Canadian political party becomes a threat to democracy & human life
2/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

Once upon a time the @NDP repped the conscience of bleeding hearts, democracy & diversity, but that party exists no more

In its wake is a hollow shell that is now directed by disinfo campaigns on Facebook, in lieu of facts & reality
@NDP 3/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

Curiously @theJagmeetSingh has proven to be out of touch with political events & indifferent to the best interests of his constituency

One example of this ego-driven defiance is opposition to the new #NAFTA at the direct cost of unions

Today on @TheWestBlock we kick off with @MichelleRempel on what she thinks of Andrew Scheer's resignation and the private school tuition donor money was paying for. What does she make of the party's executive director signing off on it? And will she run for leader? #cdnpoli #CPC
@TheWestBlock @MichelleRempel Then we sit down with NDP leader @theJagmeetSingh to ask about his top up - how normal is this for party leaders? We'll also ask whether or not the NDP will be supporting NAFTA after being unsure earlier this week and is time for Canada to get tougher with China? #cdnpoli #NDP
@TheWestBlock @MichelleRempel @theJagmeetSingh Our journos break it all down with @RobertFife and @IvisonJ walking us through the civil war that is still raging inside the Conservative party, how Mr. Scheer's resignation went down, and what the fallout will be #cdnpoli

Interlude #2: Next episode by Dr Dre featuring Snoop Dogg. '2001' is a perfect album from start to finish. open.spotify.com/track/4LwU4Vp6…
Pre-911 I'd not gotten into History or Geopolitics much. I didn't feel like Nations & how they ran themselves would hold many surprises. Expect folks creating a broken/backwards system to themselves be broken/backwards. #911 reminded humans how quickly this stuff can matter /23
End of the day on 911 I felt like I all I knew for sure was America was about to smoke somebody, maybe a whole bunch of somebodies & that it would be nice to know who actually did it & why. What else can you do? You wait for the President to speak. Yeah. *That* guy. /24

People are asking me what they can do to express their anger & concern with the way @jkenney is attacking our education system, our most vulnerable, our pockets, our jobs, our collective agreements, our pensions, & now, our democracy. Here are some things you can do: /1 #ableg
1. If your MLA is #UCP, write your MLA and cc members of the opposition and Cabinet members. Definitely write your MLA if they are a Cabinet Minister! /2 #ableg
2. If your MLA is #NDP, we have your back and are fighting for you, but please write to us too and cc the @jkenney and Finance Minister Travis Toews. /3 #ableg

@BigJMcC @GaryBurrill @theJagmeetSingh 1. You’re lying about this article & you don’t seem to know your hero very well.

In October of 2017, as Leader of the #NDP, Jagmeet Singh stated:

I don't know who's responsible [for the bombing] but I think we need to find out who's responsible, we need to make sure that the
@BigJMcC @GaryBurrill @theJagmeetSingh 2. investigation results in a conviction of someone who is actually responsible.

“Actually responsible” said Singh in late 2017. This is as THE LEADER OF THE FEDERAL #NDP! The victims of the Air India Bombing were mostly Canadian citizens BTW.

He’s referring here to
@BigJMcC @GaryBurrill @theJagmeetSingh 3. Parmar (the Air India Bombing mastermind who was killed in a shootout with Indian police before he could be brought to justice) & Inderjit Singh Reyat (who was convicted by a Canadian court in the connected Narita bombing in 1991)

Some people have asked for our comment on the #Treasury #EconomicStrategy document
There are two major issues: process and content.
I deal with these in turn.Note: these are not the official views of the @IEJ_SA 👇
Firstly on *process*
National Treasury has gone rogue...again
They have unilaterally published a policy document without engaging
👉government structures
👉ANC structures or
👉civil society (unless you count financial sector economists present at their colloquia).
Given that we are in a deep economic crisis, this Treasury unilateralism is highly irresponsible, as broad engagement on the *nature of the problem* is critical to coming up with *appropriate solutions*. But it now emerges that such engagement was totally absent.

.@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

Here’s Niki Ashton taking #RebelMedia’s lead & claiming that the CRA wrote off a $133 Million dollar debt upon the direction of PMJT lol.
- Not only does she claim that this was done under the direction of PMJT but that it was the debt of a “millionaire pal of

- Not only does Niki Ashton claim it was done under the direction of PMJT to benefit a “millionaire pal of PMJT” but that this unnamed taxpayer also involved other “high up Liberal friends” in this conspiracy.

Some are justifiably wondering why the #UCP's 2019 interim supply bill for libraries is drawing so much more criticism than the #NDP's in 2015 #abpoli #ableg

Here's what's different (1)
The #NDP's interim supply bill was tabled in June, to start July 1 (edmonton.ctvnews.ca/mobile/interim…). Folks who work for libraries in southern Alberta confirm they received 75% of their grant then, and the remaining 25% in early Sept thru special approval of the Minister of the day (2)
The #UCP's interim supply bill has come, literally, months later and is giving libraries 50% of their operating grant with about 6 weeks left in the fiscal year (3)

Today the federal @NDP released the climate plan it intends to carry into the 2019 election. With a nod to the #GreenNewDeal excitement, the plan is entitled “A New Deal for Climate Action and Good Jobs.” My overall take – this is a bold & ambitious plan. THREAD 👇#PowerToChange
The website for the #NDP plan is here:
ndp.ca/power-to-change
I like the strength of the language in this plan. NDP would declare #ClimateEmergency. They don't specifically say what GHG reduction targets would be for 2030 or 2050, but states that targets must be embedded in law & aligned with the science and what the IPCC says is needed.

1) CPC desparate to pin this on PMJT, but blame is on the Harper Gov.

If political interferernce had occured, that direction must be published in the Canada Gazette. Didn't happen!

Remind you of something? JWR was not directed to interfere with the DPP either.

2) The Crown's case against VA Mark Norman began collapsing in March b/c of released info from former Conservative cabinet ministers/staffers.

The prosecution said Norman's actions were "inappropriate and secretive" but not criminal!
cbc.ca/news/politics/…
3) Unless you believe the defence lawyer for VA Norman, Marie Henein & the DPP colluded with PMJT to interfere, Canadians

“should feel very proud and very happy today, because what they saw is that our justice system is truly unassailable….”

1/9 #CDNpoli

It's been brought to my attention that a small handful of #NDP propagandists are attempting to discredit my #SNCLavalin - #IndigenousDirective timeline RE Jody Wilson-Raybould, Jane Philpott, PMJT, etc, to other #CDNmedia journalists
2/9 #CDNpoli

Please let it be known, without a shadow of a doubt

#NDP Leader, Jagmeet Singh, did in fact speak with the CEO of #SNCLavalin about a DPA

So did the NDP's MP for Sherbrooke, Québec, Pierre-Luc Dusseault

The record ► lobbycanada.gc.ca/app/secure/ocl…

And a screencap
3/9 #CDNpoli

It's disappointing the #NDP would add to #SNCLavalinScandal by attempting to mislead #CDNmedia & #Elxn43 voters

If they're interested to learn the facts, here is everyone #SNCLavalin lobbied for a deferred prosecution agreement (aka #DPA)

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.

Thread:

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
