"Make Canada Work for People Who've Done the Work" @PierrePoilievre who voted against #CERB shares a press release amending the budget that reflects zero compassion for low income earners and the #disabled
A re-elected Liberal government will:
Continue to ensure that secondary earners—mostly women—can exclude up to $14,000 of their working income when income-testing the #CanadaWorkersBenefit, so that families can receive up to $2,400.…

This is a facile narrative that Poilievre keeps insisting, preferring an austerity budget that will only make the vulnerable even more precarious without government supports ... none of this will affect housing prices, because that is driven by a lack of supply
1/2 Conservatives advocate #taxcuts that fuel #inflation, reduced govt spending, free markets, #deregulation, #privatization, free trade, and minimal government debt. Those #regressiveeconomicpolicies instituted by the Harper govt led to #deficits

How is this not #Privatization of healthcare?

A thread…

This video has been making the rounds on Twitter.

This is @MichaelFordTO - Minister of Multiculturalism and nephew of @fordnation…highlighting the 900 people of Indian heritage that currently live in Ontario.


900. Nine. Zero. Zero.
In Ontario.

A quick google search indicates over 750,000 people of Indian heritage in the province. It took about 30 secs to find that info.

One would think the Minister of Multiculturalism would have access to the same info I have.


All jokes aside…this is emblematic of the @fordnation govt in so many ways.

We see a minister who is woefully unqualified put in a position simply because of who he’s related to…ineptitude rewarded by nepotism…classic Doug Ford.

Yet this is just the veneer.

Al Gore (#WEF trustee) et al. are SO CONCERNED about the climate, that they in the process of turning all of #nature into a new asset class – where they will OWN nature, manage/control nature, & profit from nature (via "Natural Asset Companies").

#COP27 #EmergingMarkets #30x30 Image
Of course, this has nothing to do w/ Gore's Generation Investment (#hedgefund co-founded w/ David Blood from Goldman Sachs), #BlackRock, saving capitalism, or the expansion of #privatization. Rather, it's to save the planet.

The $4,000 trillion #climate wealth opportunity.

David Blood to Mark Carney (TCFD/TNFD, #UN Special Envoy for #Climate), 2021:

"We know that #NaturalClimateSolutions are a critical part of the transition to #NetZero & we've known this for quite some time. Why is it so difficult for us in finance [] to put a value on nature?" Image

Oct 12 2022: "Deep-sea miner stock jumps after first seafloor collection since 1970s"

The "#greatreset" (#Commonwealth w/ WEF as secretariat) includes deep sea #mining. The annihilation of #oceans carried out under guise of sustainability.

#UN #SDGs…
"The fields in the CCZ represent the largest known, undeveloped #nickel resource on the planet & is estimated to contain over 3 times the amount of #cobalt, almost 2 x the amount of nickel & as much #manganese as all global land-based reserves, combined."

#Privatization of the #oceans will allow for ocean exploration & deep sea #mining - both essential for the fourth industrial revolution infrastructure desired by the ruling class technocrats. #4IR #EVs #Salesforce

This piece is fine for what it is. What it and others are understating or flat out missing is the link between religious fanaticism and anti-democratic anti-election white supremacism in the school #privatization push…
To give serious space to people like DeAngelis (a ~30 yo lobbyist-w/PhD) to give “thoughts” is appropriate for what the #vouchers movement is but to quote him intellectually rather than a political actor misses the role rightwing think-tanks have played in election denialism
It’s esp problematic given the only real offset to #DeVos/DeAngelis is Mann himself who’s been dead since 1859 and isn’t even directly quoted at that.

Hard to disagree with @paulkrugman that the economic collapse after Gorbachev helped to set the stage for Putin. But on the details, I think we know a bit more than he suggests.

A short 🧵 on Russian economic reform. 1/…
As Krugman notes, output collapsed in Russia during the 1990s. It was bad everywhere in the former Soviet empire, but it was especially bad in Russia. Here, from a 2002 JEP paper by @Jan_Svejnar. 2/…
What caused the output collapse? Krugman suggests four possible explanations, each related in some way to #privatization, by far the most visible and controversial transition policy. 3/

"Nearly 1/2 of Canadians are expected to develop #cancer during their lifetime & approx. 1 in 4 Canadians are expected to die from it." [Deloitte/CMA] How has this been normalized?

Aug 2021: "#cancer care disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic could lead to 21,247 more cancer deaths in Canada in 2020-2030, assuming treatment capacity is recovered to 2019 pre-pandemic levels in 2021."

Essential: liquor, malls, fast food/drivethrus

Non-essential: schools, "non-urgent" surgeries, fitness, in-person addiction services

#Canada, Nov 30 2021: Lockdown measures led to 4000+ excess deaths (Deloitte/#CMA) & 500,000+ fewer surgeries (CIHI).

Not about saving lives.
"4,000 excess deaths not related to COVID19 infections" is artificially low as # is based on 5-month period (Aug-Dec 2020).

Long-term care deaths with covid as of Dec 22,2020 represented 10,247 (72%) of all deaths in Canada with Covid (14,291).

1/ It wasn't a conspiracy theory, it was a #CrimeAgainstHumanity...and it came from Florida. 🧵

The GOP started lying about COVID when Trump called it a "hoax". THAT lie has cost hundreds of thousands of American🇺🇲 lives. It also made them and their friends billions $$.

2/ Trump said it was a hoax on Feb 27, 2020. Community transmission was being confirmed in multiple cities in the US. Around the world, case numbers were increasing exponentially everywhere one was found, and economic disruptions began roiling global financial markets.

3/ Four Republican Senators on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee who knew how bad the virus was, sold their stocks ahead of a market collapse which saw equity valuations plunge up to 40% worldwide in a matter of weeks.

Trudeau is a fascist.

#BuildBackBetter with a "#Freedom-As-A-Service" economy, global in scale.

#Trudeau serves ruling class/global finance - NOT citizens.

Nothing to do w/ health. This is the implementation of #4IR architecture.


PM #Trudeau & Deputy PM Chrystia #Freeland:

"Those who are unwilling to disclose their #vaccination status or to be fully vaccinated will be placed on administrative leave without pay as early as Nov 15, 2021."

#Freeland: member of the #WorldEconomicForum's Board of Trustees.
Of the 27,890 deaths WITH covid in Canada (Oct 5, 2021), 15,417 deaths have occurred in long-term care facilities. #Privatization

Anyone who promotes, supports, condones, normalizes, or stays silent on a global experiment on #children is a monster. It's that simple - & that grotesque. To serve capital, #biotech/#EmergingMarkets, rather than protecting the most vulnerable of society, is unforgivable.
Population of Canada: 38 million.

Deaths WITH covid as of Oct 1, 2021, age 0 - 19:

Canada: adverse event reports by up to & including Sept 24, 2021.

Age bracket 12-17: 419

The grossly under-reported adverse reactions thus far, are the tip of the iceberg. All for a disease for a median infection survival rate of 99.77% or more.

.@MOFA_FAPUM is right about the Pallister PCs using a Corporate-driven US legislation mill for their agenda - but it is much worse than they say. @MBLiberalParty first flagged this last June. #mbpoli #cdnpoli 1/17
Last spring, Kelvin Goertzen met with a who’s who of the global alt-right-Ted Cruz, Betsy Devos, Russian Oligarchs, a German party w/ holocaust denier neo-Nazis & Reps from Bolsonaro’s brazil. The NDP did not think this was a problem. #mbpoli #cdnpoli 2/17
One of the people on that call was WV State Senator Patricia Rucker, who is a state rep for ALEC - American Legislative Exchange Council. Some say it drafts “corporate-friendly" bills. That is a massive understatement. They undermine democracy. 3/17

PM Modi: Govt has no business to be in business.

The Govt has to focus on development projects. When government engages in business it leads to losses.

The Govt is bound by rules and lack of courage to take bold commercial decisions.
PM Modi says the amount collected from #monetisation and #divestment will be used for funding development projects.

Asset monetisation and privatisation decisions will help empower Indian citizens, he adds.
