The illegal federal political contributions from #SNCLavelin were to both federal parties back in 2004-11

All the funds have been repaid to the federal treasury by the respective national parties, both of whom disavow any knowledge of the scheme

Ladies and gentlemen (and #Peoplekind), it's time for round 2 of #QP, #SNCLavalin version.

Before we get started.
1. Fridays have an earlier #QuestionPeriod, and a smaller group of MPs.
2. PM #Trudeau is not in the House.
3. Former AG Wilson-Raybould has not been seen so far.
If you want to watch live, #QuestionPeriod can be found on @CPAC_TV on your cable subscription.

What's happening now is called "Member's Statements". This allows MPs from all Parties to make a one minute statement on anything they want.
Note for any possible first-time watchers. MPs are not allowed to use names in the House, and instead have to say things like "The Minister of XXX" or "The Member from XXX" or even "My Honourable Friend" - an old #Harper Favourite. #QP #SNCLavalin

#Canadians better wake UP! This needs to be RETWEETED to every Canadian! Conservatives, Liberals, NDP & Green. Do you know someone with #Cancer Does anyone in your family have asthma, allergies, pain or obese? If you answered, yes! You have a pre-existing condition! #cdnpoli
Do you work at Tim’s, Walmart or some other job of this nature! Guess what, NO COVERAGE FOR YOU! Do you have a job that is absolutely guaranteed, guess what probably not! NO COVERAGE FOR YOU! Can you afford private insurance premiums, $500-$1000 per person, A MONTH! #cdnpoli
Are you willing to bet your child’s life on voting #CPC or for Max Bernier who said he’s ending socialized medicine? Are you willing to bet your life? How about your parents? You better realize ELECTIONS have CONSEQUENCES! #cdnpoli

#Canada is at point where we hear a constant barrage of hate and fear. @CPC_HQ is yelling about a constant Trumpian border crisis that doesn’t exist. We do not have a border crisis. Yes. People have crossed, but, they aren’t wandering around #Canada
#cdnpoli 1/
#Canadians need to realize these people turn themselves into the RCMP. Our border is manned. They know who is crossing. We are obligated to hear their request. Most will be deported/sent back to the United States. As per Safe Third Country Agreement. We have no crisis 2/ #cdnpoli
The @CPC_HQ are stoking fear. When they know the laws. If the #CPC were in power, they too would be dealing with it the same way.
The @CPC_HQ stoking fear is to divide #Canadians
They don’t care about the border they have an agenda. That agenda should scare you 3/ #cdnpoli

As most Canadians have, I've watched, sometimes in horror, as our country descends into madness. The madness is hate, racism & bigotry, loud violent angry hate, racism & bigotry. I watch in horror as our corporate cash flow driven MSM continues to normalize abhorrent behaviour
spouting the excuse they want to show balanced reporting yet they continuously show only one side. The click bait side. The most obnoxious 'controversial' side. The side of hate, racism & bigotry. The old newspaper derogatory adage, “If it bleeds, it leads” is truer now than ever
The world has been afflicted with the likes of Trump, Orbán, Duterte and others so they can fill headlines and cash bonus cheques. We sit back in Canada sometimes with smug looks on our faces and watch the shit show in the US as their democracy crumbles

When the hell is @ElectionsCan_E going to put an end to Hamish Marshall's meddling in elections across the country. "NB Proud" funded by "ModernMiracleNetwork" who's members all work for Calgary based energy co. Questerre. NB Proud hired Ballingall's co. ENOUGH! #cdnpoli #pnpcbc
Terrance Oakey was president of Merit Canada. Went to Hamish Marshall's co. OnePersuades. Merit Ontario gave Ontario Proud $50K. Then ONProud hired One Persuades paying over $30K for Advertising. Did Marshall give ONPr access to #CPC CIMS database during ON elxn? #cdnpoli #onpoli
Here is Terry Oakey with Premier Doug Ford at a Merit Ontario event on Sept. 24, 2018. This after Merit Ontario gave Ontario Proud $50K & then ONPr used that money to pay Oakey/Marshall's co. OnePersuades $30K for ads to help Ford win Ontario elxn. #Ontario #Onpoli #cdnpoli

I keep reading tweet after tweet about death threats, FB pages inciting violence & predicting violence from #CPC supporters and their pals in the various alt-right hate groups. I asked a couple of them why this is happening. The most common response is “People are angry.”
These folks think it's okay to threaten the PM with violent acts, shooting, hanging & all sorts of other vile acts because “angry” I have a ton of questions but here are a few answers that have been offered, the most common is “He's bringing in ISIS fighters to kill us all.”
Seriously. The 2nd most common “He's bringing in those Syrians so they'll vote for him & he'll become a dictator.” the 3rd “That carbon tax is just a cash grab for him and his buddies.” I'm not kidding around here, these are the top reasons #CPC nutbars want Canada's PM murdered.

I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around the shocked and dismayed. Many people (ahem) are saying (ahem again) that Trump/Kenney/Scheer are bold faced liars and their followers need to wake up. I'm saying they are awake and they're okay with that, the lying I mean
Why? Because they're getting, or hope to get, what they want & they don't care how that happens Trump is giving radical evangelicals everything they've ever dreamed of, from anti-abortion to the apocalypse. Kenney hopes to deliver much the same w/ a side of persecution for LGBTQ
Scheer & others, like selfish idiot libertarian Mad Max are trying to lead Canada toward a mono-chromatic, fully assimilated, uni-cultural state where diversity is evil incarnate. In all cases hard right extremists, evangelical cons, nationalists, supremacists, and xenophobes

Some in Alberta protesting about pipelines not getting built yesterday is not only silly , it's downright dangerous. Why now ? The Harper clowns had 10 years to facilitate the construction of pipelines and did nothing. #cdnpol #abpoli
Cons try to make these protest look like some kind of grass root movement but in reality they are the ones that conceived the narrative & funded it as well , most likely with foreign money from Koch brothers or other dark sources , Russia perhaps , who knows for sure. #cdnpoli
This is all part of the Conservative campaign of lies. The more lies they tell and repeat , w/ Media help , the more those lies become a normal political tool of the alt-right #cpc party. #cdnpoli #abpoli

#Ottawa has not failed #Alberta!!

Watch this video from Oct 15th explaining why #ABoil prices were on the decline.

#BNN US refineries, which have been offline during maintenance work, may help explain the recent decline in Canadian #Oil prices

#CtvNews🎥@JustinTrudeau "In order for a pipeline to come online this week, it would have to be started effectively, under the previous #CPC Gov, & we know that didnt happen, because they didnt have the right approach on pipelines"

#Abpoli #Ableg #Alberta #Cdnpoli #Aboil
Bill C69 or C48 did not delay these piplines. Failed environmental assessments & a lack of sincere #Indigenous consultations caused these delays.

#KeystoneXL (Court delays)
#TMX delayed (IC)
#EnergyEast cancelled

THREAD: 1/x Some context on this short audio. In 1989, San Fransisco passed a quasi civil union ordnance. It was later reversed by voters in a plebiscite (yes, it failed in SAN FRANCISCO!). @jkenney was a 20 yer old student in SF at time. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #UCP #CPC
2/x Societal norms have evolved a great deal since. For example, Liberal stalwart Dianne Feinstein, while SF mayor earlier, vetoed a similar ordnance. Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton both opposed same-sex marriage up until quite recently. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #UCP #CPC
3/x NDP icon Tommy Douglas viewed homosexuality as a "mental illness." In 2005, 29 LIBERAL MPs voted against same-sex marriage. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #UCP #CPC

It's disgusting remarks like this that have pushed me to the point of vowing that I will NEVER call myself a feminist again. To say nothing of his revolting hypocrisy on this subject. #KokaneeGrope #cdnpoli #cpc
Ok, Let's have that "toxic masculinity" conversation, #Trudeau:
On the subject of males showing emotion, how does he suppose a ten year old boy (my son), who endured years of abuse in the foster system before being adopted, feels when he's told in school he should "apologize for the privilege he's received all his life" b/c he's white?
Where the hell was this "privilege" he supposedly had, while he was being molested in the care of GOV'T APPROVED caregivers?
Who knows, but under leftist thought crime rules, he's supposed to apologize for it, or he's "racist".

#CPC #Conservatives2018 Mr Hunt @foreignoffice @Jeremy_Hunt are you aware of the monumental diplomatic travesty you committed today? Donald Tusk was leader of Student Committee of Solidarity in Gdańsk from ‘81. He literally helped bring down the fall of Communism.
As context, his predecessor Stan Pyjas was murdered by the Security Bureau. Tusk risked his life to bring down communism, as did many others of that Solidarity generation. Can you pls show respect and try understand the people you’re negotiating with? Your Toryboy glibness shows
He joined Lech Walesa’s first post communist government, and later became a two term serving elected Prime Minister. He’s been President of the European Council. If the EU was in any way like the Soviet Union, Donald Tusk would be in a better position to say so.

THREAD:

The #CPC keep trotting out their tired talking points that, under Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau, “international investment is fleeing the country” and that “Canada is closed for business.”

The facts, of course, tell a different story.

Some examples 👇

Salesforce invests $2 billion in Canada.

Jason Kenney is one of the most anti-LGBTQ2+ politicians to ever hold elected office in Canada. If you don’t believe me, here’s a timeline detailing @jkenney's 20-year fight against LGBTQ2+ equality. (1/28) #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli
January 1998: Jason Kenney refers to the Vriend case (which held it was unconstitutional to exclude gays and lesbians from human rights laws) as a “virus” of judicial activism. (2/28) #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli
January 1998: Jason Kenney urges Alberta Premier Ralph Klein to invoke section 33 of the Charter (a.k.a. the notwithstanding clause) to block human rights protections for gays and lesbians. (3/28) #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli

Why has @AndrewScheer nor any other #CPC member mentioned the Saudi dustup? Could it be that all these trips to Washington that they’ve been making lately was the beginning of the instigation of a plan to hang Canada out to dry. I’ll explain my thoughts in a thread. #cdnpoli
Recall that Harper went to Washington on July 2 and recall also that the prime minister‘s office was surprised when the news was leaked. PM’s office found out because the White House called the #PMO to ask if he was bringing his wife.
That suggests to me that #Harper may have passed himself off as the prime minister when he set up those meetings. Why else would they ask the #PMO if Trudeau was bringing his wife?

[Graphic Language] Jason Kenney disgustingly equated LGBTQ2+ rights to polygamy and incest. Sadly, he’s not the only Conservative who has attacked the LGBTQ2+ community. Here is a list of offensive remarks that have been made by other Conservatives… (1/6) #hoc #ableg #lgbt
Harold Albrecht (@Albrecht4KitCon), the #CPC MP for Kitchener Conestoga, warned same-sex marriage “would succeed in wiping out an entire society in just one generation…” (2/6) #hoc #ableg #lgbt
Tom Lukiwski (@TomLukiwski), the #CPC MP for Moose Jaw  Lake Centre  Lanigan, proclaimed "There's A's and there's B's. The A's are guys like me. The B's are homosexual faggots with dirt on their fingernails that transmit diseases." (3/6) #hoc #ableg #lgbt

Everybody should read this, then watch the embedded video of #HamishMarshall in his own words on how @CPC_HQ create creepy psychological profiles on people to manipulate votes. @AndrewScheer has some 'splaining to do. Cc @kady

#cdnpoli #rabbithole #CPC pressprogress.ca/andrew-scheers…
Oops. Looks like #HamishMarshall *is* a diabolical master of the darkest political arts after all. 😏

Cc: @AndrewScheer @CPC_HQ #cdnpoli
And ooops... sure looks like #Rebel #stillnotmedia is still holding hands with @AndrewScheer's campaign manager Hamish Marshall. No wonder Scheer literally ran away from questions about his relationship with Rebel.

Thanks @TrickFreee for the tip

The #ucp policy process is irrelevant. Parties are not and cannot be bound by party policy if they form gov’t.

Think I’m wrong? Ask the #cpc defenders of the traditional definition of marriage how that policy worked under CPC govts. #ableg
Rather than waste time with it, I’ll propose something here instead.

I love the flat tax. Love it. It’s fair. But....it’s fair for the wrong reasons. It doesn’t benefit those who need it the most.

Alberta has both a revenue & a spending problem. Fix both.
So instead of a flat tax, eliminate all income tax for individuals.

Cut it out. Dead.

Instead, implement a 10% consumption tax. That will level the playing field and stabilize govt revenues.

However, that still impacts the low income far more than the high income.
