A blanket of smoke is covering #Alberta today.

Climate change events like this are becoming more frequent. So here is a short thread on air quality.

#cdnpoli #ableg #abpoli
cbc.ca/news/canada/ed…
Right now there are air quality advisories across the province.

Health Canada uses a 1-10 scale where 1 is nice clean air and 10 is a like a #Conservative government in your lungs.

Alberta uses the same scale.

A 1-10 scale is beautiful in it’s simplicity, but it also fails to communicate what’s really going ok with air pollution.

@environmentca does offer explanations for these numbers, but you have to go looking for them. Image

Climate Crisis: Science failed to predict flood & heat intensity

Top climate scientists have admitted they failed to predict intensity of German #floods & the North American heat dome #cdnpoli #cdnmedia #bcpoli #bcheatwave

#climatescience former Met Office chief scientist Prof
told BBC News: "We should be alarmed because the IPCC #climatemodels are just not good enough

It’s is IMPOSSIBLE to say how much of an (existential) emergency we are in because we don’t have the tools to answer question🤔
Some scientists argue that it's futile to wait for the @IPCC_CH to say how bad the #climatecrisis will be 👀

Mike Nickel's campaign paid for a billboard attacking Aaron Paquette and Andrew Knack for not being anti-maskers.

Posted to reddit about @scotiasinger's tweet asking about the billboard.

Looks like @CrystalGlassLTD donated $5000 to Mike Nickel's election campaign.

disclosure here:

I wonder if they donate to the #UCP too.

1/24 This is the second #thread in a controlled #leak of my #CAF/#DND investigation. The reason I've chosen to release these details early is to neutralize #disinformation in #CDNmedia during the pre-writ phase

This one is RE Conservative Party Leader Erin O'Toole #CDNpoli
2/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

As my first #thread about Deputy Minister Jody Thomas identified, there's an issue with "torqued" #CDNmedia at Global News (Mercedes Stephenson) + Globe & Mail (Robert Fife) surrounding the Canadian Armed Forces

For reference:
3/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

Most readers are unaware of Mercedes Stephenson's (Global News) undisclosed conflict of interest pertaining to her husband, Dan Mader. Widely described as an on-again/off-again union, Canadian Forces & #CDNmedia were invited to the wedding in 2015

1/26 I'm #leaking a few items from my #CAF/#DND investigation (in 2 separate #threads), because letting this #disinfo survive without immediate correction has the potential to endanger the health & wellbeing of too many vulnerable individuals

This one is RE Jody Thomas #CDNpoli

Both Robert Fife (Globe & Mail) & Mercedes Stephenson (Global News) misled the public RE Lt-Gen Mike Rouleau & the infamous #golf game with Gen Vance, via negligence & #disinformation

@Norlaine @APTNNews I tend to think conditions are right for the authoritarianism in CON prov parties & leadership to rear its ugly head in more obvious ways while leaving devastation in its wake. Q is—will #cdnmedia even notice what autocrat 45 scholars hv been warning abt w Kenney & Ford for 3yrs?
@Norlaine @APTNNews US journalism failed to gatekeep Trump & the Republican Party. There’s zero reason to believe #cdnmedia is up to the task, let alone learned a damn thing from the US in the last 6 yrs.

I fear for Canada actually. We always follow US trends, except now autocracy is a global one.
@Norlaine @APTNNews Most forget that the 1918 flu & the WWI Big Lie lead into the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression and Fascism in more countries than Germany. IMO, the winners of the 1st post-Covid elections will chart the role of government, politics and political ideology for at least a decade.

Excuse my fucking language but I cannot believe what I just saw on @CBCTheNational. The coverage of Ms Paul’s remarkable news conference today had no fucking mention in the lead story of her full frontal attack on PMJT. Not a word. Disgraceful. #DefundCBC #cdnpoli
I’ve been reluctant to refer to our public broadcaster as a government broadcaster but this sealed it for me - it has become the government broadcaster running interference for PMJT at every turn. #cdnmedia
This is the clip that any reporter doing a proper job and NOT working on behalf of the government would have used in their lead story:

Paul to PMJT: “You are no ally and you are no feminist”

That clip wads absent from the lead story on @CBCTheNational.

Why?

The Conservatives and their CPC senators have vowed to repeal and do everything in their power to stop C-10, so the Conservatives have shown they are not for artists, creators and the creative sector.

Conservatives don't care one iota for the artists and creators of Canada.
Justice Canada's analysis confirms that Bill C-10 remains consistent with the Charter's guarantee of freedom of speech. As a government, we have and we will keep upholding Canadians' fundamental rights.
Don’t believe what scare-mongers tell you. Bill C-10 is a necessary update to broadcasting act, and only fair thing to do for Canadian creators. #cdnpoli #cdnmedia /via

Mark Gerretson.

Be a man, come over here, and debate Bill C-233 with me. I dare you to defend the right to sex-selective abortion; the practice of aborting fetuses (mostly females) based on sex discrimination.

We will talk about “the right to choose”.

@MarkGerretsen
#cdnpoli Image
Always defaults to the wrong spelling. “Gerretsen.”
And while I’m at it, Canadian MSM, the first one of you that spins this into an attack on women’s abortion rights is going to be very sorry.

Don’t be on the wrong side of this debate. #cdnmedia

See below for a recent testimonial from one of our Admin team who was admitted into a Vancouver Post-Covid Clinic this morning.

This is a must-read about how these clinics truly operate within the context of #LongCovid

#cdnpoli #cdnmedia #CountLongCovid

👇
1) “So I had my initial appointment at the long Covid clinic at Jimmy Pattison this morning. I am 16 months into this ordeal, originally ill in February 2020. Obviously I had high hopes. but overall the experience was highly anti-climactic.”
2) “For starters they didn’t bring me in till nearly an hour after my appointment time. I think they just forgot about me or the receptionist failed to tell the doctor I was there. At the 45 minute mark I went up and asked what the problem was.”

Too bad overgrown children like @TristinHopper are blocking adults so they don't have to read/produce actual journalism at @nationalpost

Below is the educated response to far-right's continued racist Wuhan Virus conspiracy theory

2/9 For the record, to accept @JoeBiden's recent 'revelation', you'd have to believe the US State Dept is staffed by entirely new people since Trump & that they obtained new info Trump never had by magically going back in time to locate a smoking gun @WHO & #USpoli never found
3/9 Moreover, #CDNmedia is forgetting (or neglecting to verify anything whatsoever) that both #CDNpoli & #USpoli govt scientists were working in China as official partners to set up the Wuhan lab, that everything done there was under our watchful eye, management & safety controls

I did some sleuthing.

Seems our premier is responding to a scathing letter from a previously jailed pastor.

This letter was written and posted May 24, 2021.

fairviewbaptistchurch.ca/open-letter-to…

Two days ago. A day before this reopening plan was concocted by Kenney.
I watched Kenney’s speech live. He made reference to two groups of voters in his decision making. Church goers and Business owners.

Certainly there is some overlap.

If you hesitate in believing Kenney is responding to these two special interest groups, you can stop wondering.
It’s abundantly clear with the immediate response to this letter that the premier is responding to the pressure from the Liberty Coalition whose membership is primarily extreme evangelical Christians and the restaurant industry.

It’a time to take notice of what’s happening in Nova Scotia.

“[Anti-maskers are] nothing more than an alt-right group that wants to protest things like science.”

@IainTRankin, Premier of NS.

Why are other leaders hesitant to say this?

#nspoli

On May 14th, the Nova Scotia Supreme Court granted an injunction to "prevent Freedom Nova Scotia and similar groups from staging illegal gatherings in defiance of Nova Scotia's public health orders."

I'm so envious. 😭

Ombudsman Gary Walbourne was shocked that PCO had been told about a complaint against Vance.

Why was he shocked? If you tell a Minister something of a serious nature. One would expect it would be acted on by said Minister.....& it was.
Thread 1/4 Image
If consent from the complainant is required why did the Gary Walbourne (ombudsman) say anything to Minister Sajjan.
2/4 Image
So why did the complainant go to the ombudsman if she didn't want it made public and what was Mr. Walbourne's reason for going against the wishes of the complainant ? 3/4

NEVER forget this. #DougFord has been the client of one of the most manipulative dark actors to ever operate on the Canadian political landscape: Navigator. They have coached him, planted stories in the press, shaped social media responses through inauthentic activity. #ONpoli
Remember this piece of lockstep propaganda in #cdnmedia?

Take note of who falls for #DougFord’s ridiculous crocodile tears today. The Trudeau gov’t transferred billions to Ford for #COVID19Ontario relief measures. Ford hoarded the💰instead of implementing #PaidSickDays. #ONpoli
Now that there are petitions demanding #DougFordResign, suddenly this incompetent conman can produce the #PaidSickDays that he was given federal funding to help pay for, OVER A YEAR AGO? Anyone who falls for #DougFord’s soap opera acting, is a fool, a liar or an enabler. #onpoli

🧵1. Since there’s so much disinformation (ie from @jaketapper), let’s breakdown the real problems in #COVID19CA.
Mulroney sold off 70 yrs of publicly owned domestic vaccine production capacity in 🇨🇦. theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl… #cdnpoli
2. Chrétien/Martin increased R&D funding but selling off Connaught was a body blow.

Then Harper made things worse.

Not only did Harper’s #CPC gov’t cut PHAC funding by 23% (phac-aspc.gc.ca/about_apropos/… )

Harper drastically cut funding to research councils. #cdnpoli #Covid19CA
3. Enter other issues, like cronyism between #Conservatives & pharma companies.
In 2011 Harper gave a 10 yr $425.9M contract to GSK (formerly GlaxoSmithKline). It required GSK to supply at least 15 million doses a month in a pandemic once its vaccine is ready #cdnpoli #COVID19CA

Gentle reminder: if you want Conservatives out of office, your fight is also with the businesses that support them.

The Left tends to be a bit optimistic in thinking that the Right will play fair. They will not.

The rich will do whatever they can to block the Left.

If you're new to the party & happen to be a hockey fan, make sure you follow the money to see what your team is doing with your support.

In Alberta, @NHL teams are owned by billionaires who use their wealth to back Conservatives like Jason Kenney.

And if you ever see someone wear or flaunt an "I heart oil" hoodie, sweatshirt, hat, or bumper sticker, they've either been brainwashed or gaslit into harming you and your kids.

THREAD:

We’ll be tweeting what we see today at #GraceLife church in Spruce Grove, AB. A number of known hatemongers are expected to show up today to protest the closure of pastor James Coates’ church.

We wrote a quick primer on some of the people expected to show yesterday:

/2
Background: Coates was jailed in March for refusing to follow AHS guidelines of 15% capacity, masking and social distancing.

He continued to flout the restrictions, so a fence was erected around the property.

Dear 🇨🇦 ..
Much as you have been gaslit by #cdnmedia and Fed opposition party leaders
LISTEN UP
PREMIERS are responsible for dealing with almost every aspect of #Covid19 including restrictions or none ,to control spread and vaccination rollout.
They're to blame for 3rd wave..
NOT the FEDS
The FED GOV'T has given the provinces everything they needed to be successful
Unimaginable sums of funding ,rapid tests(not deployed) ,vaccine supply as it becomes available from foreign manufacturers ,if it's sitting in freezers ,blame your Premiers and top docs
how many times have you heard Theresa Tam ,🇨🇦top doc say, the provs were loosening restrictions too ?
That stronger measures are required , especially in the face of VOC certain
Prov leaders and top docs ignore that advice
Direct your anger where it belongs

1. #cdnmedia has a critically dangerous problem with RW propaganda & disinformation posing as “news”. Take “True North Centre” aka tnc. It’s a registered charity brought to you by #PostMedia propagandists. These BS charities are ideal conduits for #DarkMoney, disguising sources.
2. @CanRevAgency is likely overwhelmed by the pandemic & may not have the manpower to audit all of these BS charities. So 🇨🇦 needs a dedicated department within #CRA to investigate what amounts to #DarkMoney influence operations exploiting charitable status. #cdnpoli #cdnmedia
3. The Right can’t win on truth or policy. #CPC has nothing but tired failed ideology, in slavish service to private interests of billionaires. So their strategy appears to be: saturate & pollute #cdnmedia & social media landscapes with so much disinformation, truth is drowned.

Smug stupidity & entitlement drips from every whining self-serving Keean Bexte propaganda tweet. He broke travel restrictions to take part in a fascist coup attempt, AFTER warnings about quarantine. Calls a decent hotel a “gulag”, claims not getting fed in 4 hrs is “starvation”.
This thread on Bexte from 2019 is worth a read. Bexte has a history of ties to white nationalist groups & others on the far right.
