[Thread] 1/ I have compiled a lot of data over the past month on various Trudeau hashtags. In this analysis I compiled samples from the past 1.5 months In the following analysis, you will see pro-Trump accounts still dominating anti-Trudeau hashtags #cdnelxn2019 #cdnpoli
2/ Firstly I compiled samples from the beginning, middle an end of September, and also the 13th of October. These samples were mostly of the #TrudeauMustGo hashtag, as it seems to be the most enduring, and existed before Trudeau's blackface debacle. The sample totalled around
3/The total sample included over 100,000 tweets, retweets, mentions and replies. Once I removed duplicates, these were produced by around 12,000 unique accounts. That's actually not that many. It would suggest that much of the #TrudeauMustGo discourse is produced by a relatively

Mr. Scheer appears to have humoured an extremist who wished to charge the Prime Minister with treason. It should be noted that Trudeau now has to wear a bullet-proof vest because of people like this. 2/10 #cdnelxn2019 #CDNvote2019 #cdnmedia #cdnpolil
Scheer and other Conservative MPs also defended a Quebec woman attacking non-white immigrants. 3/10 #cdnelxn2019 #CDNvote2019 #cdnmedia #cdnpolil #elxn43

Hamish/Rebel working extra hard this Sunday. With #ScheerDisaster's lies about him being an everyman exposed; they immediately work to retrend Trudeau BF.

They are trying to keep us focused on this non-news than Scheer's ties to nazis/white-supremacists + CV lies. #cdnpoli
To add, now #DefundCBC. I predicted this yesterday. That cons+bots loved the CBC as the paragon of knowledge when it was about the nonsense news about Trudeau BF, but now that the news cycle has moved onto to more pressing issues like Scheer's lies. They turn. #cdnpoli #cdnmedia
Another edit. Now two variations of defund @CBC are trending. This is Hamish's bot army/troll army at work.

We already learned with the Trudeau hashtag that most of the "authentic" tweets were MAGAmericans morons. This is similar.

Here's the supporting docs to my podcast interview with @canadianglen

The ORIGINAL exposé by Mercedes Stephenson on Global News concealed Conservative Party as source of the racist video depicting PMJT
2/20 #CDNpoli #Elxn43 #TrudeauBlackface/#Brownface

That disingenuous story by Mercedes Stephenson was followed up by David Akin, also from Global News

That same afternoon, he told PMJT to step aside & quit the election so someone else could take over LPC…

Global News then dramatically edited its original story by Mercedes Stephenson, to finally admit they received the PMJT video from Conservative Party

But they concealed that significant edit too #Ethics

@JustinTrudeau the #brownface video incident is more serious than the two photos because it was not theatrical in nature. I am disappointed, but not surprised, given your testimony in Common Ground #cdnpoli #LPC
From your autobiography, it is clear that the person you are now is radically different from the person you were in your teens and twenties when the #brownface incidents occurred. The deaths of your brother and father (may they RIP) truly changed you #cdnpoli #cdnmedia #LPC
You found solice and peace in religion which enabled you to assist your devastated mother during her breakdown. Accepting God and meeting Sophie changed you from the angry and directionless youth you had been in your teens and 20s to the man are today #cdnpoli #LPC #cdnmedia

This is really starting to piss me off. #Trudeau literally created the most diverse cabinet in the history of #Canada, giving #POC the highest jobs in the country. He’s welcomed #Syrian refugees, he’s increased funding to #Indigenous people, he’s marched with #LGBTQ in #Pride...
...Parades. He’s supported #women’s rights, stood with #feminists & created the most gender balanced cabinet in the history of this country. His record on #humanrights, #multiculturalism & #diversity speaks a feck of a lot louder than some 20 year old photos. Wake up #canada!...
This is not #racism it is character assassination plain & simple. Don’t believe me? Look at Scheer’s record on #multiculturalism, #diversity & #inclusion. Look at the #whitenationalists, #bigots & #racists running in his campaign & ask yourself why they got a pass & JT doesn’t...

Fake photos, stolen content, false stories: We found networks of “Canadian” websites and Facebook pages that are actually run by people in Kosovo, Romania and elsewhere:… #cdnpoli #cdnmedia
These FB pages are run by people in Kosovo and the UK. They recently spread a false story about Toronto’s drinking water being contaminated. We also found a page called “Live in Canada” with more than 2.5 million likes that's managed by two accounts in Israel.
After we contacted the “Toronto, Ontario News” page to ask about its false content and being based in Kosovo, they altered the Page Transparency info shown on FB to remove the Kosovo disclosure. This is the 1st time we’ve seen this done. FB said it is investigating.

It's more than a little ironic that @andrewscheer would claim @JustinTrudeau & the Liberals just make stuff up given there's a veritable treasure trove of evidence that it's EXACTLY what he & his party do DAILY. This CANNOT continue to go unchallenged! #cdnpoli #cdnmedia #thread
Just a short while ago, I dissented a 3-tweet thread from his Comms Director that contained multiple falsehoods. #cdnpoli

Here's a parliament hill journo calling out one of your MANY falsehoods. #cdnpoli #cdnmedia

Ethics Committee was a partisan circus today. BUT if they had brought the Commissioner before them, challenging his flawed legal reasoning (as Hamer explains) incl delving into “improper” would‘ve been good. Plus some unanswered Qs for #cdnmedia to ask JWR: #thread #cdnpoli
1. Why was JWR against a DPA regime in Canada [EC report, para 44] when it exists in most OECD countries and has been used to resolve almost 80% of bribery cases worldwide since the inception of the Anti Bribery Convention, and is a guaranteed way to hold companies to account?
2. Why does JWR claim the DPA regime was rushed into law for #SNCLavalin when there was a 4 month consultation process in late 2017 that involved 370 participants both at in-person interviews and in writing?

A short thread about #cdnmedia the role of journalism (as I see it) and partisanship in Canada. #cdnpoli

Here we have a prominent Ottawa journalist denouncing his union head for taking an anti-Conservative position in the upcoming federal election.
I get it, and I understand it. The media - and "journalists" in particular - have an important role to play in a free and democratic society, particularly in the lead up to an election. Their role is to inform the public.
Ideally, they should be cutting through political rhetoric and party spin, and providing context, so that voters can make their own judgements.

The Free Press has identified Master Cpl. Patrik Mathews, 26, as the person behind the Winnipeg recruitment drive for the terrorist paramilitary organization The Base.

Mathews is an explosives expert. /1…
His social media is largely bare - presumably the result of his pulling back from his socials once he joined The Base. /2
However, his social media still provides a look into the mindset through his page likes. They are almost entirely alt-right, cryptofascist, and meme culture.

He appears to have supported Bernier. /3

1. To ignore what #AndrewScheer represents, is to ignore the serious threat Canada is facing in this coming election. & it is a serious threat. Let's begin with a past tweet from Scheer. #cdnpoli #Brexit
Why is this #Scheer #Brexit tweet important? Because by all markers assessed by experts in the field, Brexit was a malign influence operation, fueled by #DarkMoney.… #cdnpoli
3. Russia has played a major role in helping to elect right wing chaos agents: Trump, #BorisJohnson, #ViktorOrban & others across Europe. In 2015 the US treasury department estimated $300B is laundered annually into the US via a variety of #DarkMoney sources.

Yesterday, #cdnmedia rolled out the #TalyaDavidson troll job w/out hesitation. Journos are trained to spot lies like this.
I don’t like the term “#FakeNews,” but the shoe fits.
Either 🇨🇦 MSM are incredibly unprofessional, or it’s part of what $600,000,000 buys you. 👎🤦‍♀️
The problem with the media pushing this story with zero skepticism, similar to what happened when they uncritically pushed the false hijab ripping story, is that even if they correct themselves and admit they were fooled, the damage is done. That is if they were genuinely fooled.
Millions of CDNs saw #TalyaDavidson pretend to be an @AndrewScheer supporter. Only a fraction of them will uncover the truth. The damage is done, thanks to journos like @davidakin giving the act legs. As the old adage goes, “falsehood flies, and truth comes limping after it.”🗣🦵

Time to debunk this far right myth making. Who is up for a trip down memory lane about the record of the Harper/Scheer government? Let's start with some background with what Harper/Scheer inherited from the Liberals under Chretien/Martin. #cdnpoli #cdnecon #elxn43
The federal debt under the Liberals was reduced by $90 billion from 1993-2006; the debt burden fell from 66.6 per cent in 1994-95 to 31.4 per cent in 2006-07. #cdnpoli #cdnecon #elxn43
The Liberals implemented a temporary capital tax on large deposit taking institutions, a higher tax on large corporations, a temporary corporate surtax; and higher excise taxes on gasoline and tobacco products. There were ZERO personal tax increases. #cdnpoli #cdnecon #elxn43

Like many reporters, I collect passes for events I cover. @JustinTrudeau staff wouldn’t let me keep this from @CoastGuardCAN photo op in Vancouver. They said it would be reused. Today’s other event is party, not PMO. Pass is dated. I also said it’s single-use plastic. #cdnpoli
Another PMO staffer, taking orders, tried to prevent me from taking photos of the PM walking down the gamgway, in case he were to fall. PM ably descended, as you can see. Sukh Dhaliwal, however, needed help. The Surrey Liberal MP didn’t have sea legs today. #cdnpoli #cdnmedia
Also at @JustinTrudeau photo op at @CoastGuardCAN in Vancouver: dir. of photography from Mark Marissen’s Burrard Strategy (r) and Marissen’s wife/BS managing dir., Maryam (l). PMO issued media passes to both. BS recently produced Sukh Dhaliwal vids. #cdnmedia #cdnpoli

Anyone who follows me knows I have more than a few bones to pick with #cdnmedia. My complaints are, at times, directed at those who's bias and activist agendas are a hair-on-fire-over-the-top, insulting our collective intelligence, offensive in their underhanded manipulation /1
out-of-context distorters of facts, flagrant fakers, truncaters of videos (major recent example of this scurrilous behaviour) worst of all, those who know a fake story that's been planted by an extremist and who run with it anyway without fact checking just to generate clicks /2
on their ledger so they can get a pat on the head and a cookie from the boss. These ones, when called out on their cheap stunts, will never apologize or completely retract since the notoriety of their offensive attitude will generate even more clicks that feeds their sty. /3

1. Seems that there’s a fascist music festival happening. Or, at the very least, a music festival being organized by fascists.

I feel like @bifnaked needs to be aware of the following information before participating with such an event.

#cdnpoli #cdnmedia
2. We’ll start off by saying that fundraising for veterans is admirable, yet there’s no indication of where any funds raised are actually going.
3. The organizer is Eric Brazeau. If that name is familiar, that’s because he was featured a few years ago by @vicecanada for his involvement with the Soldiers of Odin, and then Northern Guard - two ultranationalist patriot groups whose entire foundation is Finnish neo-nazism.

1. Since there is no Robert Mueller in Canada, tasked with investigating foreign influence campaigns in Canadian elections, I urge all Canadians to at least read chapter II. Russian “Active Measures” Social Media Campaign of the #MuellerReport. #cdnpoli
2. You have all likely witnessed the use of troll-farms & bots to amplify paid troll accounts, supporting #DougFord, #JasonKenney & #AndrewScheer. One troll account tweeting pro Ford in the lead up to #Ontario’s election claimed to be from #Toronto. But mistakenly used Toronto OH
3. Fake #Facebook accounts have been active on the pages of front groups like #YellowVestsCanada & in comment sections of the FB pages of major media outlets like the #CBC.

"Conservatives just won't take yes for an answer ... " - #Trudeau.

Exactly. As I keep saying: Nothing pisses Conservatives off more than #Canada's success under the #Liberals.

#Scheer is throwing quite the hissy-fit here today during #QP. Never seen his dimples so red. #cdnpoli
Wow. #WeakAndy, red in the face and sweating sure is making good use of that there Parliamentary Privilege today. Everything he's said so far is halve-truths and bullshit. I think I saw steam shooting out his dimples.
