ok so you don't care about @JustinTrudeau ethics violations, the Aga Khan vacations, the blatant racism, and the #fakefeminism ok so you don't care he trampled on our rule of law, how he inappropriately put his hands on women
But if you just got off your #Liberal highhorse for one minute and thought of fellow Canadians
About your children, grand children (and at this point possibly great GC) paying back these massive deficits. Look at #Ontario after Liberals.. countries have went bankrupt for less
For a minute you thought of our First Nations peoples living in 3rd world conditions. What if your child was covered in sores and suffering with Mercury poisoning? And what if your PM thanked you for your donation while his rich pals laughed at you

1/ If you
• live in #Ontario, #Canada
• access, approved for The #DirectFunding Program through @CIL_Toronto

I would like to hear from you. I'm planning to apply to #DFP and would like client's knowledge of the process/related issues.
2/ I've called CILT, visited the website, and have #TheDirectFunding information application, but nothing quite compares to #livedexperience.
I don't have a terminal condition or quadri/paraplegia, and am not an amputee.
3/ When researching The Direct Funding Program for people with #Disabilities, the above conditions are what I encounter. I do meet the DFP criteria, I believe: i.e. need help w/transferring, grooming, dressing, item 7 of eligibility criteria.

2/5
3) Show the most recent data sets added and the most frequently used datasets.

4) A project page with links to examples of how people both in govt and outside are are using the datasets.

It’s been 5 yrs since the Yazidi community was attacked by ISIS
From today until Aug.3rd, we will commemorate the attack with a campaign in social media where the #EzidiTteam, with the support from our friends around the world,will share&highlight the Yazidi plight
ISIS terrorists attacked the Yazidi community in Iraq, killing and abducting thousands and forcing tens of thousands more into flight from their homeland, #Sinjar. The women and children who kidnapped were sold and sexually abused and raped.
#YazidiGenocide
@BrendaStoter @ma_al_k @Muradsalim1 @mumtazibrahm @KaffirC1_1 @Free_Yezidi @avinnaso @Yazidi_girl @Sagvansaleem @ky_dalal Five years later, the ISIS terror in Iraq has still left deep scars on the Yazidi community. Many of the women and girls, who escaped the captivity of the ISIS, are struggling to deal with the psychological aftermath of what a @UN commission has deemed genocide.

Conventional wisdom may be that @GMButts is a liability for #Liberals because of his connection to #SNCLavalin affair. But there is zero doubt in my mind that #Butts will be singularly focused on ensuring that #Elxn2019 is NOT a referendum on #Trudeau but a stark choice between
#Progressives & Social #Conservatives. @gmbutts is a son of Atlantic Canada who went to school in Quebec and earned his political spurs in #Ontario He is highly skilled at the art of war, especially on key battlegrounds that will determine whether or not
#Liberals emerge with the most amount of seats, if not quite a majority. #Conservative base loyalists, many of whom post replies on #Twitter may honestly believe #Butts is a liability. Wrong! While it's true that I predicted when he left that he would return to run the campaign

1. Since there is no Robert Mueller in Canada, tasked with investigating foreign influence campaigns in Canadian elections, I urge all Canadians to at least read chapter II. Russian “Active Measures” Social Media Campaign of the #MuellerReport. #cdnpoli
2. You have all likely witnessed the use of troll-farms & bots to amplify paid troll accounts, supporting #DougFord, #JasonKenney & #AndrewScheer. One troll account tweeting pro Ford in the lead up to #Ontario’s election claimed to be from #Toronto. But mistakenly used Toronto OH
3. Fake #Facebook accounts have been active on the pages of front groups like #YellowVestsCanada & in comment sections of the FB pages of major media outlets like the #CBC.

The @JKenney clip tweeted earlier was part of a speech he gave in 1999 to a Western Canadian Conference of religious Catholic home school parents- This is the entire speech. I have zero doubt many social conservatives will be inspired by the messages being delivered here.
As for the rest of us, it's painful. I personally couldn't watch it in one sitting. Those of us who are mainstream Canadians can get very complacent, thinking that religious zealots have too much power in the Middle East, and some other parts of the world, but Canada is immune.
But as the astronaut played by Tom Hanks, said in Apollo 13, "Houston we have a problem." When you watch this speech, you can decide for yourself whether @JKenney is expressing views that are core to his thinking, and therefore not likely to change significantly over time.

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commencé à "collectionner" et à renseigner dans une base de données des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de rédiger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces dernières... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes à ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de côté... Je le prendrai très certainement plus tard, et d’ailleurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plutôt que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai décidé de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4

Thread. Long: I'm feeling a profound sadness. A deep sadness. One that is inhabiting my very core. Why? I've lived long enough to know what life was like before women won their necessary & long overdue rights. Trust me when I say that April 17, 1982 was a day filled with
boundless joy for women all over #Canada. Our rights were enshrined into our Charter of Rights & Freedoms on that day. It was a very long road from being legally considered “persons” to finally being treated – at least on paper – as equals under the law.

Now I'm seeing our very
hard won rights under attack. Particularly our right to a safe, medical abortion. What's stunning about the anti abortion laws being passed in states like #Alabama is the total lack of understanding about why an abortion is performed. The medical reasons include problems with the

I'm beginning to wonder if #Canadians are a bit on the masochistic side. Canada is doing very well. Employment is better than its been in 40 years. Our debt to GDP is the best in the G7. Child poverty's been reduced by 20%. Yet given the polls, it looks like we're seriously
considering changing horses in the middle of a stream. The horse we're riding now is strong & healthy. The one we are thinking about riding has a tapeworm. It needs much more food & care than we are able to provide. There's also a good chance that it's lame. But we don't know
that for sure because the lower half of its legs are under water & not visible. How can we not be happy, grateful, for the horse we have? Is it simply a matter of, to paraphrase Voltaire, Perfection being the Enemy of Best? Or are we masochistic? Wanting to feel pain so when a

@CanuckTraveler People seem to forget that #CPC have a large voting base. #Canada is made up of a very centrist voting public, meaning, they lean left & right. They DO NOT lean far left. They DO NOT vote NDP, EVER! To think they will, is hubris & shows serious naivety. #cdnpoli
#Ontario #CPC government is not even trying to work with the Federal #LPC government. Why, they don’t care about the people of #Ontario this is a fact. They are so busy taking away our rights & healthcare, & forcing propaganda onto the people of Ontario. #cdnpoli #onpoli
If we don’t start fighting back, if we don’t start uniting under the #LIBERAL #LPC government WE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING CANADIANS CHERISH, OUR VERY FOUNDATIONS OF OUR RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY WILL BE GONE! #cdnpoli #onpoli #abpoli

#LoveLettersToAlberta This is from the heart to #Alberta, not a journalist, so it's kinda sloppy. I'm disabled so I have lots of time to research. I'm white (an accident of birth, so I'm not special) and 6th generation Canadian. 1
Dear Alberta, 350,000 families in #Ontario whose breadwinner lost their well-paying jobs in manufacturing know how you feel with the energy business going through rough times. Hubby was a victim. 2
Some jobs went to the USA to states where they have "Right To Work for Peanuts". Some went to little brown people who aren't immigrants. The jobs went to their country. 3

When the hell is @ElectionsCan_E going to put an end to Hamish Marshall's meddling in elections across the country. "NB Proud" funded by "ModernMiracleNetwork" who's members all work for Calgary based energy co. Questerre. NB Proud hired Ballingall's co. ENOUGH! #cdnpoli #pnpcbc
Terrance Oakey was president of Merit Canada. Went to Hamish Marshall's co. OnePersuades. Merit Ontario gave Ontario Proud $50K. Then ONProud hired One Persuades paying over $30K for Advertising. Did Marshall give ONPr access to #CPC CIMS database during ON elxn? #cdnpoli #onpoli
Here is Terry Oakey with Premier Doug Ford at a Merit Ontario event on Sept. 24, 2018. This after Merit Ontario gave Ontario Proud $50K & then ONPr used that money to pay Oakey/Marshall's co. OnePersuades $30K for ads to help Ford win Ontario elxn. #Ontario #Onpoli #cdnpoli

As we head closer to the Holidays and a New Year, today seems like a good day to take stock @fordnation. So let’s do that. #onpoli. Here’s a snippet of your accomplishments since forming gov’t:
You cancelled the Green Energy Act and contracts, throwing contract law & the jobs of the future to the wind, sending a message to investors that #Ontario is in fact not open for business.
You ended cap & trade, irresponsibility claiming that this decision resulted in lower gas prices & offering no plan for the greatest challenge facing this generation and the next.

Today is #December6, the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Today we remember. *Beginning of thread*
We remember the 14 young women who went to class the morning of #December6, 1989 not thinking that they might not leave the school alive.
We remember Geneviève Bergeron, a second year engineering student who played clarinet and sang in a professional choir.

#Canadians must be mindful of encroaching #fascism as we approach the 2019 election. Given the 10 points outlined in the enclosed article, all eyes must be on the @CPC_HQ for anti #Democratic actions. #cdnpoli democracynow.org/2018/10/11/how… Some points from the list...
#3 - Anti-intellectualism. The intent to circumvent Corrections Canada in the Terri-Lynne McClintic case is a classic example anti-intellectualism & the desire to stir everyone up into an angry mob. #cdnpoli
#4 - Unreality & the need to smash the truth. Too many @CPC_HQ examples to list but the most dangerous is the fight against the carbon tax. a) It will put more money in our pockets than we spend, & b) The IPCC gives us a meager 12 years to turn the Titanic away from disaster.

The @ONgov’s swift passing of #Bill5, cutting the size of Toronto’s city council, surprised many across Canada. Discover how this controversial bill broke the mould on #DemocraticProcess. ow.ly/pExs30lGdAM #Thread below. [1/10] #OnPoli #CdnPoli @IRPP
When #Toronto City Council reviewed its own ward boundaries starting in 2014, there were 24 public meetings, 100+ in-person meetings, surveys and online engagement. 2/11 ow.ly/cjw330lGdFr

This is a thread on the repealed #Ontario health & education curriculum. Let’s start with the most important point. IT IS NOT SEX ED. The curriculum is HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION. @fordnation uses hot button terms like #SexEd to fire up religious extremists
Before you make any comments regarding the content of the curriculum...read it: …consentcultureorg.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/health…
Since so many critics of the updated curriculum are aghast at the disgusting content to be taught to our innocent lil munchkins starting at the tender age of 5, this thread focuses only on gr 1-3
