How did Ukranian #Nazi collaborators and war criminals become regarded as “heroes” both in modern day #Ukraine and the entire Western world?

In this thread we will unpack the strange mythology Ukranians (and their Western intelligence handlers) created to cover-up their crimes. Image
This thread is sourced from a Graduate History Thesis published in October 2022 by Liam Hilferty, University of Vermont.

His thesis is 150 pages long. I will summarize it here with highlights and provide a link at the end for further reading.

Let us begin… 🧵 Image
Hilferty’s interest in writing his Graduate Thesis on the #NazisInUkraine began when he saw this tweet from the Russian Embassy of #Canada 🇨🇦 in Oct. 2017: Image

In a recent discussion, a question was asked about whether or not homeowners could stop the #hum and low-frequency noise from entering their homes using bass traps & sound-proofing. I shared some of our experiences in trying to deal with the #LFN and #vibration. 1/...
I've heard the hum In at least six different professional #recording studios who spent tens of thousands of dollars on sound proofing and noise mitigation. In #calgary, a family spend a tremendous amount of money wrapping their entire house in sound proofing material and... 2/...
...they still heard the hum. In fact, because the #noise mitigation was so effective in the studios, the hum was worse because there weren't any other sounds competing for my ear's attention. 3/...

The #AlbertaModel at work. 🧵

“A Medicine Hat-based recovery organization, which has to date received six-figures in government funding, has endorsed an anti-supervised consumption site ad campaign in the U.S.”

First, a must read from @JeremyAppel1025…
This attack on supervised consumption services is not a one-off. It’s a pattern of misinformation.

From @ehyshka:

“It is unfortunate to see an Alberta-based organization lobbying the United States government against supporting this intervention,”

Unfortunate, but not surprising. There is a coordinated movement underway to shift public opinion away from #HarmReduction. A movement heavily influenced by the misinformation machine in #Alberta.

A few days ago, we looked at the cities with the most new streets —but that's not the whole story.

Population growth is another way to measure a city's growth.

"Dangerous" Danielle Smith. A history of her bad takes, and how her bad judgement will hurt Alberta.

#AbLeg #abpoli #yyc #calgary #edmonton #alberta #yeg #yql #reddeer
After running on a platform of opposing the Alberta PC dynasty, she and seven other MLAs crossed the floor to join the party she had ferociously opposed for years before. What else did she lie to voters about?

#AbLeg #abpoli #yyc #calgary #edmonton #alberta #yeg #yql #reddeer
The jist of this terrible column? "Dangerous" Danielle Smith used her platform to argue that light cigarette usage can be good for you, and we need to put our energy into making cigarettes healthier.

This is an update on Edmonton Public Schools COVID/illness/absence numbers. I have been collecting this data daily since Jan 2022. Thank you to @EPSBNews for making it available for as long as you have. #edmonton #yeg #covidab
This first graph tells the biggest story. In purple are absences related to COVID-19, in blue are absences due to other illness. As you can see, when students returned to school in January, there was a significant amount of COVID-19 going around. Absences due to other illnesses.. Image
were also quite high. Throughout the year absences due to other illness grew well above COVID-19. I am not an expert, but I believe this was caused by a lack of testing moving potential COVID-19 cases into the 'other illness' category because COVID cases often aren't confirmed.

Safeworks, #Calgary's only supervised consumption site, will be closed by @YourAlberta in the area hit hardest by drug poisoning (red).

Soon after taking power in 2019, the govt cancelled a planned Calgary East mobile site - 2nd hardest-hit (yellow).… Map of Calgary showing drug poisoning fatality rates in diff
@YourAlberta @JyotiGondek @DanWMcLean @SonyaSharpYYC @JenniferWyness @YYCTKW @pootmans @chabot4calgary @kourtpenner @CWalcottYYC @gccarra And yes, the province plans to "replace" the SCS capacity with two overdose prevention sites inside shelters (community access barriers currently unclear). But we've already seen how shuttering services plays out in #Edmonton.
We also know how closing the supervised consumption site worked out in #Lethbridge.

It was, incredibly, AB's only supervised inhalation site. Around 50% of poisoning deaths follow inhalation use.

Still think this isn't intentional policy?…

🇨🇦 Excellent report by @Breanna_KS about the Edmonton Police Service's "secret" surveillance plane, but it leaves a lot of questions unanswered, like, how didn't I notice that one before?

Let's go over (granted, with hindsight) all the details.

👮 🛩️ 👋
Let's look up the obvious, planes with an owner of "Edmonton"

There are 4 plane owners with that word in their name:
‣ Edmonton Soaring Club ❌
‣ Edmonton Flying Club ❌
‣ City Of Edmonton ✅
‣ Edmonton Regional Helicopters Inc. ❌
Re-do the search using the correct owner:

The City of Edmonton own four Canadian-registered aircraft:

‣ C-FEPS Eurocopter EC120B
‣ C-FEPU Aerospatiale AS350 B3
‣ C-GEPS Aerospatiale AS350 B3
‣ C-GMXM Cessna 182Q ✅…

Thread: A bad budget from a bad government.

Alberta’s 22-23 budget is a master class of deception & gaslighting. It pretends to have a lot of good news, but page after page signals hardship for the province.

#alberta #ableg #abpoli #yyc #yeg #edmonton #calgary #yql
2. The UCP are claiming this is a good news budget because it forecasts a small surplus for the coming fiscal year. The surplus is 100% based on high gas & oil prices, which are not in the control of any government.
#alberta #ableg #abpoli #yyc #yeg #edmonton #calgary #yql
A balanced budget does not equal a healthy economy. Alberta has a 9% unemployment rate. Calgary has the highest unemployment rate among major cities.

BREAKING: Hours after Premier Kenney, HM Copping & CMOH Hinshaw requested Albertans limit Holiday gatherings, the UCP held a Christmas party w/ over 200ppl at the Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar in #Edmonton. Copping & Kenney were NOT In attendance. (1/4) #abpoli #ableg #COVID19AB
According to my sources Minister Kaycee Madu & Assc Minister Dale Nally were at the party w/ around 200 other UCP members. Restaurant staff confirm the entire venue was bought out. I'm told that COVID-19 protocols & restrictions weren't broken. (2/4) #abpoli #ableg #COVID19AB
It was held right after Kenney told people to "reduce number of daily in person contacts by half over the coming weeks." Copping: "We have to stop super spreader events," and asked ppl to "take a close look at their plans and consider how they can reduce their interactions."(3/4)

NEWS: Developers donated at least $58,499 to Edmonton’s incoming city councillors ahead of the election. Three councillors were also part of an infill development lobbyist group.

I analyzed all the public donor lists & this is what I found. #yeg #yegcc…
Development executives, donating as individuals, gave the most to:

- Tim Cartmell ($22,450)
- Andrew Knack ($14,400)
- Ashley Salvador ($14,039)
- Anne Stevenson ($6,610)

Sarah Hamilton, Aaron Paquette, Jennifer Rice & Karen Principe haven’t shared their lists. #yeg #yegcc
Experts I spoke to say developers have a vested interest in the outcome of Edmonton’s elections.

My Grandma was moved from #Lethbridge #yql ICU to the #Edmonton #yeg ICU to await a transplant.
Her liver and kidneys are both failing.
She is one of the ones drawing a short stick in the triage world.
she is too sick to wait and they need the room in ICU for the increasing #COVID19AB cases in the province.
She has now been taken off the transplant list, and they are going to decrease her life support.
We will lose her within days, none of us can see her, none of us get to say good bye. She will "live" her final days with no loved ones and only medical staff surrounding her.

She didn't end up with COVID but it was ultimately COVID that will take her away from us.

Great opinion article by Angela Grace, in the Red Deer advocate today in why Kenney won't back down on the horrendous curriculum.
#ABEd… Image
All Albertans should be livid - experts, school boards, parents, teachers.. hundreds and hundreds have shown why this curriculum is a step back. Why it needs to be scrapped and re-written, this time without the UCPs favorite racist being involved, Chris Champion
Join the protest this Saturday in #Edmonton, from noon to 2 pm. Come masked, and be as LOUD as you can. The UCP need to know that we won't let this go. This is about the future of our province and our children's education. Don't let Kenney force his ideology on you

Toxic wildfire smoke every day all summer long in Calgary is only the tip of the iceberg.

BC is on fire. Greece is on fire.
California is on fire.

And capitalists complain about changing the economy because they like making money from fossil fuels?

#ClimateCrisis #TaxTheRich
Canada dragged its feet for years on doing anything about the #ClimateCrisis. The Conservative government obstructed actio by sabotaging research, muzzling scientists, and destroying records.

#ableg #cdnpoli
Alberta finally gets a government that recognizes the economic costs of climate change & takes its first baby steps towards action.

The ruling business lobby groups throw a fit & throw all they can into supporting a fascist from Ottawa to rescue them.…
