The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) purchased aggregated, de-identified data from Telus to figure out general trends in the travel of Canadians in light of COVID restrictions. Let's talk about this. 1/20 #cdnpoli…
First of all, if they bought it from Telus, we know Telus already was collecting the data. Why? Was it some reason as benign as trying to figure out if Canadians were obeying the public health measures and predict where new outbreaks might occur? 2/20
Or are they selling personally identified to marketers to better direct advertising? You know, how you go to a store and suddenly you're getting ads for whatever that store sells? Like that. Which is annoying, tbh. 3/20

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is “tempting evil” with his statements about the training of Ukrainian troops abroad amid the conflict with Russia, Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak, who advises the defense minister, said on Friday.
During a visit to India earlier this week, Johnson told journalists that “we are currently training Ukrainians in Poland in the use of anti-aircraft defense, and actually in the UK in the use of armored vehicles.”
Skrzypczak, who headed one of the multinational divisions in Iraq in the mid-2000s, told Polish newspaper Fakt that “when we were on missions abroad it was hard to imagine that one of the politicians would talk about our plans or training on television.”

OK, Let's see if I have this straight. The UCP is getting Albertans screaming mad about an extra 2¢ at the pump. But at the same time they want to change our health care system so anyone wanting good care will have to pay $$$ hundreds or thousands more a month for insurance? 1/11
US: "In 2020, the average national cost for health insurance is $456 for an individual and $1,152 for a family per month." Even after shelling out all that money, month after month, you still have to pay deductibles or co-pays when you make a claim. 2/11…
And, if we look at the US example, even after paying exorbitant insurance premiums, your treatment may not be covered because insurance companies really don't like paying out. It's in the fine print. 3/11…

@OttawaPolice knew about the convoy ahead of time, and instead of mitigating the physical truck occupation prior to their arrival, they helped them figure out where to park in the core. #defundpolice #NeverVoteConservative #FluTruxKlan #shameful…
Before the trolls move in: protest organizers do often speak w/ city officials about parking, facilities etc, and police are hired to close streets and direct traffic.

However, this was instructions to park a convoy of semi-trucks in the downtown core.

Highlights to follow
Jan. 25 where Cyr-Pidcock: "Don't want to bug you but if you want us to work with you, I need the info that I requested. When will you send everything?"

Cyr-Pidock to Chad Eros: "I will have a definite plan for you tomorrow morning,"
Eros: "so happy"

Pierre Poilievre worked to oust #ErinOToole just as a large scale info-ops attack is launched in 🇨🇦. Now Poilievre says he’s “running for Prime Minister of 🇨🇦”. He hasn’t even won #CPC leadership, yet foreign troll farms are retweeting him en masse. None of this is coincidental.
The past week+ I noticed a huge uptick in troll accounts amplifying Poilievre. It was creepy. Poilievre routinely gets boosted by fake “Canada Proud” & “Rebel” type troll networks. But this was different. Foreign troll networks amplifying the same messaging…& PP. #cdnpoli #CPC ImageImageImageImage

How do you know #TruckersForFreedom is an op as well as a grift? Because of the scores of troll network accounts, followed by troll farm accounts, posting fake pictures, endlessly promoting this operation. Who’s behind these troll networks? #KochNetwork #CEC #CanadaProud #GRU? ImageImageImageImage
How you know #TruckersForFreedom is a con & an op part 2. #Conservative politicians are using this lie to data mine with fake “petitions” while they pump out disinformation & fundraise off it. Gratuitous lying like from Melissa Lantsman. #RageFarming #NeverVoteConservative ImageImageImageImage
#TruckersForFreedom grift & op part 3.

I’ve now lost count of all the pictures & videos taken from other countries & other times claiming to be a convoy in 🇨🇦. Like this one. Claiming a video of a backed up highway at rush hour is a ‘massive convoy against vaccine mandates’ 🙄. Image

OK. Alberta, Listen up! I know that no one anticipated this when Kenney and his merry band of outlaws was elected. But here we are. This is shitty, shitty governing. 1/10
This is window dressing that does nothing to keep anyone safe. Anyone can make themselves a card and go out and get into all the public places where you are supposed to feel a modicum of safety, but it is not real. 2/10
This is an insult. Kenney came out of hiding because the rising COVID numbers were out of control and he did...something. He incurred the wrath of the CPC, probably losing the election for them, and for what? 3/10

The election is tomorrow. Erin O'Toole has replaced his public appearances with a little film. He ordered his candidates to go into hiding a few days ago. This says a few things to me... 1/8 #elxn44vote #Elxn44
1) He doesn't trust any of his candidates to not say something that will screw everything up even worse. Does a party that has been upfront with Canadians need to keep their candidates from speaking? 2/8
2) O'Toole is plenty ruffled himself. That last press conference in the curling rink where he had to hang onto the podium to keep himself from running out of the room? Yowza. This does not particularly inspire confidence. 3/8

"Red Tape Reduction" does not benefit you, the Canadian public. #Elxn44 1/7
Red tape reduction is taking away rules that force employers to keep their workers safe.

Red tape reduction is taking away rules that make sure our food & beverages are properly inspected.

Red tape reduction is taking away safety rules on consumer products like baby seats. 2/7
Red tape reduction is taking away rules that protect our environment for future generations.

Red tape reduction is taking away rules that stop companies from price-gouging, forming monopolies, engaging in usurious practices, and exploiting workers and consumers. 3/7

This should worry every Canadian. If the #NeverVoteConservative win a majority they have enough power to change the charter. Say goodbye to universal healthcare, CPP, Women’s rights, LGTBQ rights, Indigenous rights, and Climate action. Welcome to HELL.
Don’t be fooled by Erin O’Toole
These MP’s would allow conversion therapy to be legal.

With Justin Trudeau,
thousands of people crossed the border illegally,
This system is unfair to the families who follow
the rules and waiting for their turn.

I propose a welcoming country, but respecting its borders.
All immigrants can install in Quebec,
Canada, to work, to study, or to found a family.

But legally and respectful of the laws of the country they want to integrate. Final point!

To protect our borders and end the illegal crossings,
A Conservative government will apply the Safe Third Country Agreement.
Then, in terms of the reunification of families and the integration of immigrants, a Conservative government will work with Quebec to give it more power and autonomy in immigration.

In concrete terms, we will give Quebec more powers to choose who comes to settle here.

Why, in my view, is this a #CPC op & NOT originating with the PPC?

The CPC are the sole beneficiaries. They can look “reasonable” compared to the PPC & prevent #PPC from hiving off any CPC votes. But this op does other things too….#NeverVoteCPC #Elxn44 #NeverVoteConservative
…It gives #CPC plausible deniability for a sociopathic campaign straight out of the authoritarian playbook, it allows for gaslighting (as O’Toole has done, endlessly) & it creates an atmosphere of hate aimed at PMJT, while seeking to demoralize & intimidate Liberals. #Elxn44
These tactics are designed to attract others to join in & amplify the op to make it look organic. PPC attracts antisocial personality types who consume RW disinformation. So they would naturally be attracted to this type of engagement. Easy dupes, if you will. #NeverVoteCPC

This is a thread about Donor Lists in the upcoming #yyc municipal elections. This thread contains original research based off of the donor lists enclosed by @JeffDavisonYYC, @JeromyYYC and @JyotiGondek
#yyccc #yycvote
First, I just want to say a couple of things:
1.Political Campaigns are expensive and the rules imposed by the UCP have made it difficult for candidates. If you find a good candidate, please consider supporting them financially or with your time.
2.Candidates have no control over who donates to them. Receiving a donation from someone does not mean that the candidate supports that person.

1. Andrew Lawton peddles in extremism. Erin O’Toole treating this propagandist as an actual journalist, normalizes far right disinformation & pretends it’s legitimate & reasonable. It isn’t. It’s the subversion of objective truth & facts. #elxn44 #cdnmedia #StopTheCPC ImageImage
2. Andrew Lawton got his toxic start at “Rebel” so-called “News”. Where many far right extremists have gotten their propaganda launching pad. #NeverVoteCPC #NeverVoteConservative #Elxn44 #StopTheCPC ImageImageImageImage
3. On Canada Day, when many chose to observe a day of mourning, to honour Indigenous lives lost at the hands of systemic racism, Andrew Lawton chose instead to dog whistle to neo-Nazis. #NeverVoteCPC #NeverVoteConservative #Elxn44 #cdnmedia #StopTheCPC ImageImageImageImage

1. A few years ago I heard about a horrific story where a developmentally delayed 13 y/o (who operated at the level of a 7 y/o, according to her mother) became pregnant from being raped by her stepfather. Anti-abortion groups sued the abortion provider. #elxn44
2. You read that correctly. Anti-abortion groups did not mount an action against the child’s abuser, but against the abortion clinic. Poilievre, Candice Bergen, Michael Barrett, Ed Fast, & every single #CPC MP on that list above, also believe….
#NeverVoteCPC #StopTheCPC #elxn44
3….what those anti-choice groups believed: this child should’ve been forced to carry a pregnancy resulting from horrific abuse.
In the beliefs of these #CPC MPs - who would be in charge of people’s lives - there should be no rape or incest exceptions. #NeverVoteCPC #elxn44

1. The deliberate countrywide organized vandalism of #LPC candidates signs, reminds me of an operation carried out in West Germany by the KGB in 1959.

@RidT wrote about this op in his book Active Measures. #cdnpoli #Elxn44
2. The KGB spotted that Germany had a lingering problem with antisemitism. It was only 14 years after the holocaust. So the KGB mounted an op where they committed fake acts of antisemitic hate crimes. Painting swastikas on Jewish graves, defacing buildings etc. The KGB’s plan….
3….was intended to bring out real antisemitic hate crimes. The KGB committed the fake hate crimes to encourage a wave of antisemitic activity that would tarnish West Germany’s attempts to rebuild its reputation.

The deliberate act of organized vandalism of #LPC signs….#Elxn44

#CPC memory lane. Not 40 or 50 years ago. But the past TWO years. This is who they are. They encourage & stoke extremism & violent rhetoric. They pump out disinformation & propaganda through 3rd party front groups. Stoke xenophobia & of course, anti-choice cultish beliefs #Elxn44
#CPC memory lane continued. #Brexit was a malign influence operation, including Russian interference & disinformation. Who was a cheerleader for it? #CPC.

#NeverVoteConservative #Elxn44 #cdnpoli
#CPCMemoryLane continued. That time not even Andrew Coyne could pretend #ErinOToole hadn’t swung #CPC into far right territory.

Remember the Yellow Vests Canada “United We Roll” AstroTurf “protests”? Where somehow supposedly out-of-work truckers had the money to fuel up transport trucks at a cost of multiple thousands of $$ (sporting anti-Trudeau slogans), travel across 🇨🇦, pay for meals & hotels? #Elxn44
It pretended to be “grassroots”. It was anything but. It was a mixture of #Conservative politicians at all levels of government, right wing propaganda media - Rebel, True North Centre etc (even a few CBC ppl). + white nationalists & other extremists #NeverVoteConservative #elxn44
#Conservative leaders were right in there. Promoting an obvious op, benefiting the fossil fuel industry & pumping out propaganda to stop #ClimateAction. This is the #CPC. A pro-extinction position, promoting denialism & #DarkMoney funded deceit. #NeverVoteConservative #elxn44

Holy Sh^t! I just got a call from a polling company. The first question asked "Do you consider yourself pro-choice?" (press 1), "do you consider yourself pro-life?" (press 2) or "are you undecided?" (press 3) 1/10
The next question was "Are you in favour of sex-selective abortion?" (press 1), "Are you opposed to sex-selective abortion?" (press 2), "Are you undecided?" (press 3). 2/10
The third question was "Should there be laws about abortion in Canada?" (Press 1 for no, press 2 for yes, press 3 for undecided). After pressing 1 three times, they hung up on me. I am not "for" sex-selective abortion, btw, but I am opposed to this being a wedge issue. 3/10

I would like to tell you a story. It's about a small, insignificant rural municipality, but it is a micro example of what is going on everywhere in Canada. For the past 20 years or so, this RM has had a council dominated by people who support a lot of development. 1/16
It seems there isn't a development project they don't like. Gravel pits near residential areas? No problem. Big box malls even though many, many residents don't want it? No problem. 2/16
In 2012 they had a public hearing and hundreds of residents had either written submissions or spent their evening, with their kids in pjs, crammed into the council building, waiting their turn to speak out against a big box mall. 3/16
