Oct 27 update: TAKE HOME

#Canada is performing similar to peers such as Germany in testing & controlling #COVID19 spread.

OUR FAILURE: When #Canadians get COVID-19 we’re more likely to die.

WHY? Longterm, congregate care, retirement homes.

Why am I (We) so mad about Kenney and the UCP? My friends and family ask me this all the time. Reflection: its not just the atrocious cuts and wars on our health (among too many other things to list), its much more than that.
Long thread, sorry!

I remember growing up, in #Calgary, born in early 80's, and being raised to be Canadian - you know: be friendly and kind, look out for others, be considerate, understanding, and thoughtful. Golden rule, if you can't say something nice.. etc.
And it seemed good. #Politics were snarky but, as far as I recall, it was still Canadian - with respect and decent dignity to the other side. It seemed like we had a certain pride to have our own brand of politics, Canadian style politics. It wasn't US attack-style politics.

Many people know about the #American and #British forces committed to Operation Market Garden. Some know about the #Irish Guards and the #Polish Brigade. But many don’t know about the #Canadians who fought during the operation.

At the time of Market Garden, Canadian forces were advancing from #Belgium to the #Netherlands. While Canadian units were not involved in the Battle of #Arnhem, a number of Canadian Officers, like this one Ashton Kerr, were.

Things like this make me mad 😡. @HarvestHillsYYC is a grass roots organization that only has at the moment a staff of twenty volunteers that also have lives and families of their own

But when someone makes a request and demands to be put to the top of the list ahead of others..
...and when they are politely told that it was not possible because there were other requests ahead of them...they accused The Harvest Hills Cares Calgary Team of not wanting to help!

They even threatened to go ahead and tell everyone about the “experience” they had.
Jenn had her volunteer call her in tears because that volunteer was threatened as well when all they did was respond in an appropriate manner.

I have included proof of these messages with all identifying information removed.

[#China blocks MPs from meeting pro-democracy figures]

1. #Beijing exerted pressure on #Canadian MPs, urging them not to meet #HK democracy figures, incl recently arrested media mogul #JimmyLai and me during their tour to HK in 2017, per @globeandmail.…
2. The craziest thing was, when one of the MPs, @GarnettGenuis, raised human rights issues in #China during the meeting, Chinese officials “lectured” him at length for more than 45 minutes, from the end of the meeting and all the way through the dinner.
3. It is horrifying when the then-MP @LindaDuncanAB’s Ottawa office received from the Chinese embassy, who dissuaded her from meeting Dalai Lama, when she travelled to northern India in 2019.

#JustinTrudeau accused with DAMNING information of Pedophilia by #Canadian indy Media star says multiple corroborating witnesses gave him testimony leading him to say SUE ME he is going public to everyone to expose #Trudeau's crimes! O.O OMG

WOW. & to think this couldn't happen in a place like #Canada All #Canadians have been fooled by #Liberal "values"
Just because #Trudeau did a pay to shut up the child gag order doesn't mean that makes it magically legal. (due process withstanding) The RCMP, AND the FBI under USMCA Section 27.5 I believe it is have a Full Duty & responsibility to carry out FULL investigation.

Will the same be found to be true for the high initial Death rates in our Canadian Nursing Homes?…

#COVID19 #Hydroxychloroquine
There are many similar articles. Time for an investigation, but our RCMP never will, because it will lead to #TrudeauCorruption & every politician along the way.

Remember we brought in the @CanadianALF914 and the deaths stopped. Hmmmm?
