Tuesday is coming. It’s going to be a big day in the #HoC for #PWD and for the right reasons. Big reasons. @BonitaZarrillo has been a big supporter of Bill C-22 which will help the lives of Canadians with Disabilities all over the country. There are many unanswered questions. A🧵
To say that @CQualtro has her hands full with this is the understatement of the year. She’s endured big time scrutiny and for all the right reasons. #PWD are legitimately going to #MAiD bc of poverty situations. So why hasn’t this been a bigger deal? We can say whatever we want.
From “the gov’t doesn’t care” to “the money has to come from somewhere”. The fact is: these reasons are bogus reasons to put ppl in such compromising positions that they’re willing to turn to state-sanctioned suicide. ESPECIALLY when other legislation passed so fast in order

In the #HoC for Friday #QP.
Bergen leads off by video, concerned that Bill C-10 is an attack on free speech.
Guilbeault, hewing to talking points, reads that this is about making web giants pay for Canadian artists, while they want suggested playlist to have more Cdn artists.
Bergen lies and says the Bill is about people only saying Liberal-approved things online.
Guilbeault suggests she actually read the bill to say users are not regulated. #QP
Deltell worries that immigration files take longer for Quebec than elsewhere, not respecting Quebec’s targets.
Schiefke recites that Canada is moving quickly to meet targets because they have increased resources. #QP

In the #HoC for the final #QP of 2020.
Carol Hughes is in the big chair.
Gérard Deltell leads off to deliver a Bloc demand for unconditional health transfers.
Darren Fisher reads some talking points about the transfers since the start of the pandemic.
Tracy Gray blames the Canadian government and not the UK for delays to the Canada-UK trade deal.
Ng says they are looking for timely passage of the bill but also working with the UK about mitigation of the bill doesn’t pass in time. #QP
Gray has a very selective memory when it comes to the shenanigans and incompetence coming out of the UK on this trade deal. #QP

"[@palkisu via @WIONews] Farmers in #India are protesting. And some politicians outside India have appointed themselves their spokespersons. Did the farmers ask them to? Most likely not. Are they helping the cause of the farmers? Certainly not."

WHAT FOLLOWS is embarrassing. /2
Loss of #UNSC seat bid by🌐PM @JustinTrudeau was a heavy blow, underscored by its intense and costly diplomatic push. It is not possible to enter the thoughts of the Prime Minister and know to what extent (if any) Canada’s latest candidacy for Secretary General of #OECD now /3
motivates his actions. Nothing happens in a vacuum. AND, in this instance, for whatever reasons @JustinTrudeau made the decision to not only speak out publicly, but to also brush off India's subsequent criticism. Doing so publicly reasonably equates with a desire to be seen. /4

I am very disappointed in the #cdnmedia. Their he said she said approach without fact-checking enabled some elected officials to lie to us about vaccines on tv and in press for two weeks. They let the misinformation out and let it grow bigger.
They betrayed Canada and Canadians.
Example of misinformation that is still floating around. They are starting to fix it only after two weeks. See the next tweet.
They are now fixing it. But why did they let those people lie to us for two weeks?…

The 'Good Book' states: "let him who is without sin cast the first stone."

Yet MP @MarkGerretsen #YGK pays no heed himself to such and doesn't mention HE ALSO IS NOT FAULTLESS when it comes to respecting the rules in #HoC committee.

Here's ONE example:

#WEscandal #cdnpoli
☞ GERRETSEN interrupts MP @ToddDohertyMP [12:02:08] and then proceeds to interject again with a childish swipe during a formal Point of Order. [12:02:43]

Meeting No. 2 #PROC - Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (6 OCT)
THAT SAID, Mr. GERRETSEN dId not hesitate to angrily rebuke Mr. DOHERTY during the previous meeting for what he perceived as an interruption to his speaking time. [17:46:43]

WITHOUT ANY EXAGGERATION, reaction to a Tweet by @MarkGerretsen has been (very) strong and overwhelming negative.

For someone who infrequently visits Twitter and who usually confines himself largely to #LPC talking points, he generally garners a dozen or so comments ...
this Tweet has already collected «724» comments. Reviewing several hundred, I counted eight (8) neutral or supportive.

Frame 1 presents a sampling in a collage of Quote Tweets and Frame 2, Comments. Many could not be used here due to their 'strong wording'. The reader
can make their own judgement. Suffice it to say, CDNs want Members of Parliament with emotional maturity. A modicum of humility is also seen as desirable.

Utilizing (Liberal interpretations of) #HoC procedure, @MarkGerretsen #YGK ultimately crassly marched in step with his Liberal #LPC colleagues blocking any 'pre-study' of #WECharity links to Prorogation.

@Emmanuel_Rach @ipoliticsca #cdnpoli…
GERRETSEN read from a statement [11:21:18 - 11:35:53] delineating @liberal_party argument against the Motion by @karen_vecchio.

Following his reading, GERRETSEN interjected upon @ToddDohertyMP with (supposed) Point of Order [11:51:28]. Taking umbrage at remarks of DOHERTY,
GERRETSEN denied his statement had been prepared by PMO.

To that point, GERRETSEN had an obvious prolonged struggle with the syntax and choice of (his own) words [11:35:01].

A Liberal MP has garnered some unexpected national media attention over his "anguished committee speech" (@hollyanndoan via @mindingottawa).

AND,his defensiveness quickly boiled over, unravelling into a (cringeworthy) rant by the MP Kingston and the Islands.

#cdnpoli #YGK
To the (undoubted) chagrin of @MarkGerretsen and his @liberal_party colleagues, this story doesn't lend itself readily to vetting.

When @CPC_HQ @karen_vecchio introduced a Motion pursuant to Standing Orders requiring an explanation by the government for the Prorogation ...
Mr. GERRETSEN embarked immediately on defensive pushback against any inclusion of #WECharity [17:13:50-17:18:12], even accusing all the Opposition of "conspiring in advance" [17:45:50] as "an opportunity to dig up some dirt. I know they're [#CPC] are looking for this silver

Read it for yourself.

But, what are others saying? ...

☞ "There was no reset. It was all just more of the same, and the same in these times is clearly not enough." #RexMURPHY @nationalpost…
☞ "In design, then, the speech rather resembled a mullet: Business in front, party in the back." @acoyne @globeandmail

"... The government that failed at so basic a state responsibility as safeguarding public health is eager to take on new challenges."…

Thank you, @JenicaAtwin, for your wonderful speech calling for better care for the elderly and those living with disabilities. Also calling for better decorum and less partisan politics in the #HoC.

#cdnpoli Image
Anyone want to guess how this member from the #CPC responded?

#cdnpoli Image
Hey, @blainecalkinsmp, you gonna rhyme about how, before #Covid19, 70% of Canada's total national debt was added up under the previous 2 Conservative governments?

Or are you just gonna lie and act like a child?

"Three strikes and you're OUT" - @cherylgallant.

You mean like being found guilty of electoral fraud in three consecutive elections, Cheryl?

I wish you didn't get cut off just now. I wish the speaker would let you scream and yell for a full hour. The #CPC!

#WeakAndy @AndrewScheer said he'd like to ask the Prime Minister "Is everything ok?" - stoking the flames of conspiracy BS.

It's all he has to offer and is why he lost the election.

Now Scheer will babble about WE w/o one Q reg. #Covid19.

"This isn't a plot line in a Sopranos episode" - Scheer giving a nod to Ezra Levant's book "The Libranos"?

Sounds like it to me.
