CLIP: I attended a talk at @UBC Vancouver by a Chinese official, Yu Jiantou of the @CDRF15, and asked him about detention camps in #Xinjiang. He defended the camps as “vocational training” and said China has different priorities when it comes to human rights. Story coming soon.
@UBC @CDRF15 For context, see this earlier story by colleague @Nuttallreports. The same institute that invited Hu Angang invited Yu yesterday. The UBC-affiliated moderator did not correct the record to clarify the camps are compulsory and have prison-like conditions. thestar.com/vancouver/2019…
In above video, the moderator is UBC Institute of Asian Research fellow Evan Due. Due is a senior adviser to the Chinese government research foundation where Yu is Assistant Secretary General. UBC hasn’t answered questions on whether he was an appropriate choice for moderator.

Introducing my #the100dayproject inspired by @QMUNITY and my fellow #ADE @Sharon_Drummond. 100 days, 100 GIFs, 100 queer terms to educate and connect our community and allies. All GIFs created with #AppleKeynote and will be compiled on @GIPHY : giphy.com/channel/joepau… @AppleEDU
Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

Follow along —-> #100daysofQueer created on #AppleKeynote

1. Please bear with me for a #bced thread, as I try to make sense of the dispute over what the govt/employer side is calling "changes" and what the @bctf says are concessions at the bargaining table, regarding class size and composition #bcpol
2. My understanding is that the govt/employer (represented by the BC Public School Employers' Assn - "BCPSEA") is proposing class size and composition language that would be applied to all school districts, and that this is a change, not a concession, to current language.
3. Following the @BCTF'S 2016 victory in the Supreme Court of Canada, old contract language (pre- 2002) was restored. Bargaining used to be done locally, so contract provisions varied from district to district.

1/10 I am saddened and annoyed at this new position. This is basically a slap in the face to every education assistant in the province. #bced #inclusion #specialeducation #bcpoli #SD43 @CUPEBC @cupenat tricitynews.com/news/new-coqui…
2/10 Supporting all students in the classroom is the role of the education assistant. Many have taken 2-years of coursework to prepare for the challenging work.
3/10 Education assistant work eroded over the 16-year reign of terror unleashed by Christy and her crew. Services were stripped from vulnerable students and EAs had hours reduced.
