This vote splitting garbage has me LIVID.

I will vote for the person with the greatest chance of beating the Con. Period.

As for all the Singh purists, I am beyond up. Know why? Keep reading.../1
#elxn43 #CountryOverParty #ABC
I started this election season truly supporting Mr. Singh. I saw a man who was passionate, articulate, charismatic. Turns out I was conned by an opportunist put in place by the NDP. They saw those traits & exploit them to save their dying party, regardless of 0 experience../2
At 1st I thought Mr Singh was very upfront & relatable. Turns out he went to an expensive private school in the states & is currently worth over $4 million. Meanwhile, he stayed silent while Scheer was attacked for misrepresenting his socioeconomic status.

EXACTLY....

I am so sick of people saying they can't vote Liberal over electoral reform!!!

1) it could not be done unilaterally
2) NDPP & Green broke THEIR word
3) Cons stated day 1 they would not allow reform to pass

Bigger picture, folks.
#elxn43 #CountryOverParty
NDP and Greens joined with the Conservatives in 2016 to insist that a referendum was necessary

#CountryOverParty #elxn43
The Conservative Party is vowing to use any means necessary, including a Senate blockade, to keep the Liberal government from forcing through electoral-reform legislation

@BigJMcC @GaryBurrill @theJagmeetSingh 1. You’re lying about this article & you don’t seem to know your hero very well.

In October of 2017, as Leader of the #NDP, Jagmeet Singh stated:

I don't know who's responsible [for the bombing] but I think we need to find out who's responsible, we need to make sure that the
@BigJMcC @GaryBurrill @theJagmeetSingh 2. investigation results in a conviction of someone who is actually responsible.

“Actually responsible” said Singh in late 2017. This is as THE LEADER OF THE FEDERAL #NDP! The victims of the Air India Bombing were mostly Canadian citizens BTW.

He’s referring here to
@BigJMcC @GaryBurrill @theJagmeetSingh 3. Parmar (the Air India Bombing mastermind who was killed in a shootout with Indian police before he could be brought to justice) & Inderjit Singh Reyat (who was convicted by a Canadian court in the connected Narita bombing in 1991)

Some people have asked for our comment on the #Treasury #EconomicStrategy document
There are two major issues: process and content.
I deal with these in turn.Note: these are not the official views of the @IEJ_SA 👇
Firstly on *process*
National Treasury has gone rogue...again
They have unilaterally published a policy document without engaging
👉government structures
👉ANC structures or
👉civil society (unless you count financial sector economists present at their colloquia).
Given that we are in a deep economic crisis, this Treasury unilateralism is highly irresponsible, as broad engagement on the *nature of the problem* is critical to coming up with *appropriate solutions*. But it now emerges that such engagement was totally absent.

.@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

@mikebednarski @kalemlalonde @christoaivalis @theJagmeetSingh 1. Just one? Ok.

Here’s Niki Ashton taking #RebelMedia’s lead & claiming that the CRA wrote off a $133 Million dollar debt upon the direction of PMJT lol.
- Not only does she claim that this was done under the direction of PMJT but that it was the debt of a “millionaire pal of
@mikebednarski @kalemlalonde @christoaivalis @theJagmeetSingh PMJT.”
- Not only does Niki Ashton claim it was done under the direction of PMJT to benefit a “millionaire pal of PMJT” but that this unnamed taxpayer also involved other “high up Liberal friends” in this conspiracy.
-Not only does Niki Ashton claim that this conspiracy to

Some are justifiably wondering why the #UCP's 2019 interim supply bill for libraries is drawing so much more criticism than the #NDP's in 2015 #abpoli #ableg

Here's what's different (1)
The #NDP's interim supply bill was tabled in June, to start July 1 (edmonton.ctvnews.ca/mobile/interim…). Folks who work for libraries in southern Alberta confirm they received 75% of their grant then, and the remaining 25% in early Sept thru special approval of the Minister of the day (2)
The #UCP's interim supply bill has come, literally, months later and is giving libraries 50% of their operating grant with about 6 weeks left in the fiscal year (3)

Today the federal @NDP released the climate plan it intends to carry into the 2019 election. With a nod to the #GreenNewDeal excitement, the plan is entitled “A New Deal for Climate Action and Good Jobs.” My overall take – this is a bold & ambitious plan. THREAD 👇#PowerToChange
The website for the #NDP plan is here:
ndp.ca/power-to-change
I like the strength of the language in this plan. NDP would declare #ClimateEmergency. They don't specifically say what GHG reduction targets would be for 2030 or 2050, but states that targets must be embedded in law & aligned with the science and what the IPCC says is needed.

1) CPC desparate to pin this on PMJT, but blame is on the Harper Gov.

If political interferernce had occured, that direction must be published in the Canada Gazette. Didn't happen!

Remind you of something? JWR was not directed to interfere with the DPP either.

2) The Crown's case against VA Mark Norman began collapsing in March b/c of released info from former Conservative cabinet ministers/staffers.

The prosecution said Norman's actions were "inappropriate and secretive" but not criminal!
cbc.ca/news/politics/…
3) Unless you believe the defence lawyer for VA Norman, Marie Henein & the DPP colluded with PMJT to interfere, Canadians

“should feel very proud and very happy today, because what they saw is that our justice system is truly unassailable….”

1/9 #CDNpoli

It's been brought to my attention that a small handful of #NDP propagandists are attempting to discredit my #SNCLavalin - #IndigenousDirective timeline RE Jody Wilson-Raybould, Jane Philpott, PMJT, etc, to other #CDNmedia journalists
2/9 #CDNpoli

Please let it be known, without a shadow of a doubt

#NDP Leader, Jagmeet Singh, did in fact speak with the CEO of #SNCLavalin about a DPA

So did the NDP's MP for Sherbrooke, Québec, Pierre-Luc Dusseault

The record ► lobbycanada.gc.ca/app/secure/ocl…

And a screencap
3/9 #CDNpoli

It's disappointing the #NDP would add to #SNCLavalinScandal by attempting to mislead #CDNmedia & #Elxn43 voters

If they're interested to learn the facts, here is everyone #SNCLavalin lobbied for a deferred prosecution agreement (aka #DPA)

Reply 1 from ELECTIONS ALBERTA
Bill C-76, known as the Elections Modernization Act, received Royal Assent December 13, 2018, which covers Federal Elections.

IS THE ALBERTA ELECTION COMPROMISED? Is the NDP exploiting it?

Mega Thread of Opinion (1 of 52)

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.

Thread:

If everyone who said “I like the NDP but they’ll never win so I’m voting Liberal”, actually voted @NDP, they would actually win.

In most elections the NDP gets a minimum of 15-20%. You only need about 30% support to win and the Liberals usually get 25-40%. #cdnpoli #NDP
Its simple math that if only about 1 in 3 Liberals voted NDP, the NDP would actually win a federal election. If half of Liberal voters backed the NDP they’d be in a guaranteed majority government. #cdnpoli #NDP
And that’s not even counting the Green vote who could be inclined to vote NDP for reasons like the NDP opposing oil pipelines, investing in renewables and campaigning on electoral reform. #cdnpoli #NDP

💥 THREAD 💥 #NeverNDP (1 of 13)

The #ON #NDP are not the answer. #Horwath as failed time and again. I have no idea why the party has kept her in this long. This will be her 4th? 5th? loss. It's a very dumb party. Any other party would have replaced her after the 2nd loss. ...2
Don't believe what you read/hear about @fordnation! Slanderous lies and fake narratives that everyone just runs with; even the media.

He's not a drug dealer. For heaven-sake! Ridiculous lies. Did he sell weed when he was 18? Who knows. F%ck, it was the 80s. Who didn't? 😜 ...3
He loved his brother. He tried so hard to help him; to protect him. Rob (a great guy) was mentally ill. An addict. At the lowest point in his life. And the media (the Toronto Star mostly) completely butchered him. What he needed was compassion. ...4

10 minutes late to #SECU and it's moving fast. Catching up. For those following, clause 109 of #c59 #cdnpoli
Conservative motion, similar to with #CSE, asking #CSIS to report annually on the costs incurred due to oversight. Both #NDP & #Liberals argue that this creates a new administrative burden. #NDP argues could be used to try & undermine new review & oversight bodies

Back at #SECU for the next round of votes on Bill #C59, in time to see the #NDP motion to give the Intelligence Commissioner powers to go beyond simply saying "yes" or "no" on authorizations be voted down. #cdnpoli
Next Liberal motion, also proposed by Greens, is to ask the #IC to publish decisions not only when rejecting an authorization, but also in approving it (something @ICLMG is in favour of). Passes.
NDP motion that would allow IC to ask for additional information, rather than saying "yes" or "no" to an authorization. Notes that the current #CSE commissioner suggested this amendment #C59 #secu
