MPP Joel Harden allegedly got punched in the face at yesterday’s protest.

Here, he stands by while his comrade shoves a noisemaker in my ear.

Physically violent behaviour occurs on a spectrum, and none of it should be normalized.

I am consistent in my positions.

Constant truck honking during the convoy/occupation was painful, and fairly described as a violent tactic.

The same applies to this red contraption which was deployed in a targeted way.

That’s MPP Joel Harden hiding his face beside the culprit.
Honking during the convoy is distinguishable based on the duration and frequency of noise— a dull ache that worsens over time.

But the red contraption caused acute physical discomfort in a way that was almost debilitating— a sharp pain that is all-encompassing in the moment. Image

Last year, former MPP Randy Hillier was charged with criminal offences in relation to his support for the #FreedomConvoy. His trial is currently set to be held in Ottawa. Tomorrow we argue a change of venue motion so that he can be tried in a jurisdiction other than #Ottawa.
In Ottawa, the #ArrestRandyHillier hashtag was prominent during the time. Further, the city and other local politicians have demonized the Freedom Convoy. One such example is the creation of @ottpeoplescomm funded largely by the taxpayers of Ottawa.
Another example is when then-mayor @JimWatsonOttawa tweeted his support for #ZexiLi who had received the “city builder” award from the City of Ottawa for her role as the lead plaintiff in a massive class-action lawsuit naming tens of thousands of ottawa residents as defendants.

This week, many of us started Ramadan with the news of Ahmed, a young man in #Ottawa, being berated by a guard associated with @VIA_Rail, for praying inside a train station.
The right to worship freely is a cornerstone of Canadian society and democracy. The guard's actions amounted to blatant #Islamophobia.
We got involved to help Ahmed. We made it clear to VIA Rail and other authorities that the incident is indicative of systemic #Islamophobia. Real solutions are needed.

1/6. The government of #India's media and Internet blackout in Punjab (home to a large Sikh population) should not be tolerated by the international community.

It's time #Ottawa takes the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to task for this.…
2/6. This is not the first time the #BJP government has engaged in egregiously undemocratic behaviour - the ongoing human rights violations and atrocities in Kashmir are just one example.
3/6. The #BJP is an extension of the Hindutva nationalist org, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which wants to shape #India into a country run by and for its Hindu majority.

CW: sexual, physical, emotional abuse

🧵The @JustinTrudeau government doesn't seem to grasp the scale of the abuse crisis in 🇨🇦 sport, so here is another thread, this time about abuse in and around #Ottawa over the last 20 years. This is by no means an exhaustive list. 1/17

What about #14WingGreenwood deployments to Keflavik?

It's only a matter of time before the CP-140 Aurora deployments to Keflavik, that coincide with Russian Navy movements through the GIUK gap, get traction in the press.

They pretend it's not happening. We see them. 🤦‍♂️
What about the #19WingComox #OpCARIBBE Jan/Feb 2023 operation?

They pretended the press couldn't see it happening and wouldn't talk about it like it was some secret operation. Au contraire, it was so visible I live-tweeted it.

Exactly 40 years before the U.S. blew up the #Nordstream pipelines, the CIA blew up another pipeline carrying natural gas from #Russia to #Europe.

This thread is about the Trans-Siberian pipeline sabotage of 1982 -- the largest non-nuclear explosion ever on Planet Earth.
Thomas Reed, senior US national security official, claims in his book “At The Abyss” that the U.S. allowed the USSR to steal pipeline control software from a Canadian company. This software included a Trojan Horse that caused a major explosion of the Trans-Siberian gas pipeline.
The Trojan ran during a pressure test on the pipeline but doubled the usual pressure, causing a tremendous explosion.

Sigue el ciclo #EnsillArte, donde hablaremos de la #silla como objeto del #arte, para el #TwitterCultural.

Esta #escultura en forma de silla gigante y coja la podéis ver en #Ginebra, #Suiza.

Ha ayudado a salvar millones de vidas y a ganar un #NobelPrize de la Paz.

Te cuento⬇️
Pues sí, le falta una pata, claramente arrancada con violencia, astillada, destruida...

Una silla a la que le falta una pata está "handicapeada", algo le ha pasado...

Sólo decir que, a pesar de las apariencias, no es una silla rota: es un ser humano herido.

Al mirar la silla rota deberíamos ver algo así.

The Ottawa People’s Commission on the Convoy Occupation (@ottpeoplescomm) today released Part 1 of its final report.

Included are testimonies of many residents, and it's clear that this was a violent occupation in which the people of downtown #Ottawa were abandoned.

(A thread)
The so-called #FreedomConvoy negatively impacted community organizations offering essential services, businesses like pharmacies and restaurants, churches, schooling, daycares, emergency services, and programs to help the homeless. Many women experienced sexual harassment.
It’s also very sad how many residents – including me – have been gaslighted and mocked for their experiences.

Here are some notable quotes from the report, which is available here:

Ben Mockler (AKA Ben Burke) has spent years building a following in the world of international fascism. Now he’s recruiting in Canada’s capital for the world’s largest white power gang and owns a gym on Rideau St. #Ottawa
As “Aquilla the Eagle,” Mockler has been an organizer for the Ottawa Active Club since its inception. Our previous investigation found the decentralized Active Club movement is lead in Canada by the Vinland Hammerskins, a violent white power gang.
The Active Club movement is international - it’s a brand - and it’s used to bring together neo-Nazis and train young men for violence. There are several chapters in Canada, including in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and the Maritimes.

#Sitecore #Demo Portal instances are now shipped with dynamic demo scenarios, and it is not your typical documentation 😉. Let's see what makes it different 🧵
Each instance receives its own dynamically generated site, that only includes parts relevant for your demo instance, depending on integrations you've enabled.
Even content within the pages is dynamic - if there is a link to the Sitecore Launchpad, or PLAY! Website - it will be a deep link to your own instance.

As 2022 comes to a close, here’s a brief #cdnpoli year in review. In January/22 we saw the launch of a destabilization op (that just *happened* to coincide with the lead up to Putin’s attack on #Ukraine). #FreeDumbConvoy #FluTruxKlan
#FluTruxKlan #FreeDumbConvoy was pushed hard by multiple malign players & boosted by inauthentic activity, including by foreign threat actors. #Cdnpoli #CdnpoliYearInReview #goodbye2022
Feb/22 #NevrePoilievre officially launched his “prime minister” bid using #FluTruxKlan op, even though we’d just had an election months earlier & O’Toole was still #CPCldr.

3. However soon a lawyer representing the "Freedom Convoy" made a bombshell claim in which he implicated an executive with Enterprise Canada in an incident that occurred in the early days of the occupation.

Just realized tomorrow is the last meeting of our beloved 2018-2022 city council.

Which also means that its the final council meeting for longtime councillor, Jan Harder and before we listen to tomorrow's praise and accolades I've compiled some of her greatest hits (🧵a thread):
Who can forget one of our all-time favourite Jan Harder moments with her iconic line: "I withdraw what you didn't hear me say" when she told fellow councillor Riley Brockington to "shut up" during a hot mic moment at a tense council meeting:

Or that time that she was forced to resign from the Planning Committee for findings that she breached the Council Code of Conduct for hiring the daughter of a developer and long-time friend (Jack Stirling) in her office while also doing business with him.

Ah. Good times. Image

A few days ago, we looked at the cities with the most new streets —but that's not the whole story.

Population growth is another way to measure a city's growth.

🇨🇦 Here are the top five cities in Canada that have seen the fastest population increase between 2016 and 2021 👇
1. Toronto: + 274,185 residents between 2016 and 2021

2. Montreal: + 187,658 residents between 2016 and 2021

1. When I did the timeline on Pat King's involvement in the #OttawaOccupation (link below) I didn't include a lot of what I had.

In retrospect there was a lot that I should have included, thus here are with Part II

2. And once again to set the mood and contradicting the "ah shucks, I'm really a nice guy" and "teddy bear" persona Pat has cultivated, here he is during a summer a few years back telling people he is not a nice person and saying he has a record the size of his arm.
3. Based on a redacted intel report during the occupation which is clearly Pat King, this admission might be one of the few things he has said about himself that is accurate.
