A thread about prosecuting the #WEscandal, in ten parts. Here goes.
One: voters aren’t as motivated by scandal as journalists and politicos are. They’ve heard cries of “scandal” too often. Leaders and policies matter more, to them. But.
Two: the role of every war room I’ve run is not to win the election. Our role is always to knock the other side off their agenda, so they can’t showcase their leadership and ideas. You can’t score when you are constantly trying to keep pucks out of the net.

I was present on many occasions during #Elxn42 & #ELxn43 when

@MarkGerretsen MP Kingston and the Islands #LPC #YGK

touted his supposed feminist credentials. His silence now with respect to @marwantabbaramp is deafening,... AND telling.

This is ludicrous. So the LPC Govt should interfere in the justice system? Make up your damn minds #cdnmedia media and #cdnpoli. When JWR was asked to consider something that was tantamount to judicial interference but apparently this interference is ok. What a farce.
Allowing, through hostage taking, the Chinese Govt to force our Govt to override a independent judicial decision is - to me -much more dangerous to the integrity of our judicial system than asking JWR to consider sending a directive, as was within her power, to the DPP. Wake up.
We all wants these two Canadians home. I’ll be damned though if our Govt should bow to China and corrupt our judicial independence in the process. All those former Parliamentarians can crow all they want from the peanut gallery but I hope the #LPC Govt doesn’t bend. #cdnpoli

Using the phraseology of @CommrRCMPGRC Brenda LUCKI - namely, "painful to hear" - Madame, you have shown yourself «UNFIT TO LEAD» @rcmpgrcpolice.

We are witnessing quite possibly the largest social movement in our lifetime with the continued protests against anti-Black racism all over the globe. @BLM_TO has personally received support requests from the UK, Finland, Belgium, Australia, and Brazil.
In Canada, we're trying to track where all the demos are happening (currently mapped on the front page of defundthepolice.org). We have what we know is an incomplete list, with over 60 cities in every province and territory in Canada. I've never seen anything like it.

An excellent question from @Canucktrader1. The answer is multi-layered.

AGREED - @macleans, as “qualified Canadian journalism organizations”(QCJO), is a recipient of Liberal media bailout. This has ignited a public debate and raised valid questions of bias and favouritism.

While political actors who are complicit in advancing this aberration will naturally and by reflex pay passing lipservice with the default mantra: “A healthy democracy relies on an independent press, free of political influence."

As a former #RCMP @rcmpgrcpolice, I AM APPALLED THAT you would make such a tainting comment, in advance of an independent investigation.

Trudeau has emerged, is now speaking, but is talking more frankly about how he "didn't understand the racist history of blackface"...so he has now articulated the word blackface, not "makeup".. and racist in the same sentence.
Trudeau says it is never acceptable to darken one's face.
First q about how many times has he darkened his skin with makeup?
Trudeau says he "shared the moments that I recollected."
says he now "appreciates calling it makeup, it was blackface. it was not right."
Trudeau says he did not see the truth of how racist it was "because of the layers of privilege" he comes from, and now realizes it will never be acceptable to wear blackface when there are people out there who live every day confront racism.

Liberal Party still hasn't answered questions about why it took so long for them to deliberate over what to do with Guillet (they were notified of the posts by Jewish organizations in June). #cdnpoli #LPC
Guillet told reporters that the Liberal Party was willing to allow him to run despite his comments and came up with an action plan that included outreach to the Jewish community #cdnpoli #LPC #elxn43
The Liberal Party tells me that their decision on Mr. Guillet is final, they will not reconsider him as a candidate. Guillet said he still hoped to run for the Liberals. That won't happen #cdnpoli #LPC #elxn43

.@PierrePoilievre raises a point of order asking for the document that Liberal MP Steve MacKinnon is referencing an analysis of saying thousands of jobs were on the line. MacKinnon says he has no such document to table #cdnpoli #ETHI #SNCLavalin
@PierrePoilievre MacKinnon then slams Poilievre for having little experience in the private sector. MacKinnon clearly getting annoyed by Opposition points of order and complains. Committee Chair says it's his job to determine Points of Order. Terse exchange #cdnpoli #ETHI #SNCLavalin
@PierrePoilievre Now the MP I am most interested to hear from, Liberal @beynate who says he AGREES the Ethics Commissioner should be invited to testify, breaking party rank. Erskine-Smith is clear he thinks the Ethics Commissioner made legal errors though and wants to ask qs #cdnpoli #SNCLavalin

"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.

I listened to Scheers economic vision so you don’t have to! Key points:

1. Dudes about as inspiring as a toothbrush.

2. Typical Trudeau bashing, says Trudeau inherited a great economy from Cons and squandered it. Truth is we were in a technical recession. 😂

#cdnpoli #LPC

3. Commits to a Coast to Coast “energy corridor”. The endless pipelines are coming! Greens and NDP will hang their hat on electoral reform and allow this! 👌🏻😂

4. Cancel carbon tax (calls it a tax grab, but its revenue neutral so ya) 😂

5. End responsible shipping ban BC

6. Repeal C-69, aimed at responsible oversight and consultation for energy projects

7. Massive Regulatory reform to make it easier to pollute and degrade our environment, and people

8. End foreign imports of oil, doubling down on building massive plant and oil commerce

@CanuckTraveler People seem to forget that #CPC have a large voting base. #Canada is made up of a very centrist voting public, meaning, they lean left & right. They DO NOT lean far left. They DO NOT vote NDP, EVER! To think they will, is hubris & shows serious naivety. #cdnpoli
#Ontario #CPC government is not even trying to work with the Federal #LPC government. Why, they don’t care about the people of #Ontario this is a fact. They are so busy taking away our rights & healthcare, & forcing propaganda onto the people of Ontario. #cdnpoli #onpoli
If we don’t start fighting back, if we don’t start uniting under the #LIBERAL #LPC government WE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING CANADIANS CHERISH, OUR VERY FOUNDATIONS OF OUR RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY WILL BE GONE! #cdnpoli #onpoli #abpoli

@EmmMacfarlane Let’s count the ways that Harper affected Canada
1. He showed disdain for parliamentary rules and procedures and even lied in HOC.
2. He prorogued parliament twice in order not to face the animosity of HOC
3. He restricted access to information on a scale hitherto unheard of. (1)
@EmmMacfarlane 4. SH muzzled scientists preventing them from presenting results that were inconvenient.
5. MOST egregiously he closed at least 16 research libraries that contained irreplaceable data on environment & had irreplaceable data thrown on dumpsters and burned.

huffingtonpost.ca/capt-trevor-gr…
@EmmMacfarlane 6. SH reversed environmental protections and essentially withdrew Canada from the Kyoto agreement
7. He promoted harsher penalties for young offenders and increased funding for prisons while reducing funding for rehabilitation programs.

My take on #Election2019, is one that will surprise all #Canadians who will take the #time to read past this #headline. It will be a #long #series of #tweets that will be #purely #honest & straight to the #point.
This #series of tweets will contain #jabs at #voters, the #media & our #political #parties & they are #jabs, that in my own #opinion are #merited. Agree or don’t agree, I won’t care, but it needs to be said to ease my conscience in the lead up to our election!
In 2015, Canada’s #media, declared that #Trudeau & .@liberal_party outflanked the @NDP on leftist policies & for the 1st time in recent history the media supported large deficits & destruction of our country’s finances over a more balanced approach. Let’s stop here for a sec.

Some people think #ProportionalRepresentation will result in government backroom deals - the kind we didn't vote for.

But that's no byproduct of #ProRep. I know that because we have that *now* with our #WinnerTakeAll voting system, although its mostly invisible.
I can provide a case study on the backroom deal I am *very* familiar with: the 2015 Liberal Electoral Reform promise.

I made a film to help Liberal friends get Resolution 31 (they wrote) adopted at the LPC policy Convention prior to the 2015 election.
As @BardishKW said, "In 2014 the Liberal Party voted overwhelmingly to endorse what has become our Electoral Plank."

LPC members voted *overwhelmingly* for the process.

Candidate @RajSainiMP explained how it would be done.
