This dam conference on hydro-impacted communities starts today! It's actually named "Ki Ta Ski Naw" or 'rise up' in Cree. For those interested in following along, I think hashtags will be #hydroimpacted #hydrojustice & I'll also try to use #SiteC #bcpoli…
Looking forward to the first panel which will be moderated by BC journalist @sarahcox_bc. Opening welcome now. Starting to regain feeling in my face from the walk here, hi Winnipeg!
We're in Treaty 1 territory for the #hydroimpacted conference. Welcome by local elder Dave Scott in Cree language. Speaking now about the treaty relationship, its history, the 'doctine of discovery', Trudeau's White Paper & ongoing devolution process.. cc #SiteC #treaty8

Plenty of chuckles from the crowd about our crummy weather (wettest... windiest... etc) stats #nlwx
David talks about the transition
1) global warming
2) climate change
What's next? 3) atmospheric terrorism

Chart shows % Cdn pop under various provincial governments. Red and Blue shading shows balance of power. Bar top shows Fed party in power. Notice the balance between Fed and Prov.

The federal election this year is more important than you might think.

#cdnpoli Thread ….

Canadians seem to naturally achieve political balance by countering swings in provincial politics with opposing federal parties.

The swings are often massive, occurring about every 10 years, with almost total shifts from right to center-left and back.

Interesting how the Charter was created in an environment of very strong Conservative provincial politics.

1982 was a period when more than 2/3 of the provinces were conservative and infamous PET was Prime Minister.

A different time when country came first.

Changes are coming to the Auto Insurance Act and Insurance Companies Act in two bills, being introduced today. #nlpoli
There will be no insurance cap.

Instead, the current $2,500 regulated deductible is doubling, to $5,000. #nlpoli
Taxi drivers with good records will now have more options than just being lumped in at an industry rate. #nlpoli

Question Period underway.

Opposition Leader Ches Crosbie starts it off.

Crosbie begins with auto insurance rates. Asks for an update on specific actions being considered. @VOCMNEWS #NLpoli
Premier Ball says they want to work closely with the taxi industry and is working with the minister responsible.

Crosbie: we have the highest auto insurance rates in Atlantic Canada as we are told. When will we see changes? @VOCMNEWS #NLpoli
Ball: industry has a request for a meeting with me, and it’s something important they will do. This is a 20 year problem. They want to find a solution.

Crosbie: it’s not only taxi drivers who are impacted by the cost of insurance. Can the Premier share their plan to reduce?

Just because there's no magical solution to the Muskrat Falls problem doesn't mean there isn't a solution. There is just one that isn't simple. There are at least 3 problems, actually, but let's talk about the rates one for a bit. 1/ #nlpoli
Dwight Ball is right: it is a debt problem. The question is how we pay for the debt. Until now the scheme was to pay through electricity rates over a long time, and with deferred payments of the principle to lower front end rates. Never a good plan. 2/ #nlpoli
Step 1: Define the problem. If you don;t know what the problem is, then you cannot figure out how to solve it. So break down the types of costs, the amounts for each, and who gets paid, and go from there. 3/ #nlpoli

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
