Mona Fortier on @TheCurrentCBC tells @lauralynchcbc the middle class is families who are able to do what they want as activities, such as having children enrolled in hockey programs. The Minister for Middle Class Prosperity struggles to define the middle class. #cdnpoli
No surprise there. It’s the most arbitrary category in public policy.

Everyone who has a job or a family will tell you they’re middle-class. The median household income may be ~$70,000, but self-identifying MC Canadian households will range from $40,000 to $500,000. #cdnpoli
Income-tax relief as short-term economic policy usually amounts to less than $500 per person. Anything’s welcome. But even if income-tested and capped, that amount will compensate for increases in non-discretionary expenses, at best.

It’s unlikely to create more prosperity.

"They meet in person, spread propaganda, encourage each other to expand the movement. They purchase weapons & discuss training. They have also attempted to join, influence & volunteer for Cdn political parties, adopting a restrained, more palatable guise." theglobeandmail.com/canada/article…
"The overarching goal for many in the Cdn Super Players chat group was the eventual creation of a white ethnostate. In the meantime, one aim was to begin gaining a foothold in a range of institutions and professions, including law, education and the military." #whitesupremacy
"Dank said that at one point he was a student teacher at a school with children in Grades 6, 7, 8, whose ethnic makeup was almost entirely white. 'It’s the ethnostate basically.' Dank told the group that he was using his position as a student teacher to influence young minds."

F*ck! When does it end? ER doctors (like Toronto’s Marko Duic) not hiring women physicians for 16 years (!!) gender bias in funding, universities undervalue, underpay female academics, women get pushed out of STEMs, add in racism, sexism.... #cdnpse #WomenInSTEM
let's not forget Twitter is toxic for women. Report by @Amnesty confirmed what EVERY woman knows already. There is an abusive tweet every 30 seconds and Black women are 84% MORE likely to be targets of abusive tweets. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
It gets worse: "Racialized women had highest unemployment rate at 10%... women of colour, are more likely to be concentrated in low-wage jobs. Racialized women were 25% more likely to be working in occupations in the bottom half of the income distribution" thestar.com/news/canada/20…

To my tenured colleagues: A thread on how we can be part of the solution, not just a precious relic of the way things used to be, and the manifestation of disproportionate privilege and inequity in the academy. Let's talk; please share and add. #cdnpse
A lot of us with tenure are watching PhDs leave without finishing, go into debt, suffer lousy adjunct jobs, destroy their mental health. We are watching our undergrad programs turned into scaled-up piecework. Our administrative structure turn managerial. What can we do?
Because *we*, the tenured, are the ones to do it. Who else? Marginalized scholars? Contingent workers? Trustees and boards? No. If anyone has the footing, power, and safety to push back, it's tenured people. What are you going to do?
