@CTVAnchor As recently as yesterday, your minister, the Attorney-General, insisted the review was a better option, the best option. You said that last week.

@StephenMcNeil "We needed a joint inquiry, Steve."

#Portapique #nspoli
Murphy: It was the federal govt. that said no? You were for it, they were against it.

Stephen McNeil: Right.

Murphy: And you didn't ask them why they were against it?

McNeil: We don't have the authority to compel people forward.

@BillBlair @JustinTrudeau @BernJordanMP
Murphy: Why did you not reveal that the federal govt. was opposed to it (public inquiry)?

McNeil: Let's be honest, Steve. This isn't about me or my government, or about the federal govt. It's about those families.

Clearly Steve, and let me be clear. Clearly we missed the mark.

The decision not to hold a full public inquiry into the murders of 22 Innocent people means the current Nova Scotia govt. no longer has the confidence of its citizens.

The only solution is to topple this government. Time to answer the question:

#HowStrongAreWe? #Portapique
.@brianhillGlobal The independent review panel will have no power to compel witnesses or testimony, no power to subpoena evidence, no power to challenge any agency or org that refuses to provide info, and no power to make binding recommendations to govt.…

As education spokesperson for the @NSNDP I have spent the past several months speaking with parents and teachers and consistently and publicly asking the government for information and clarity on the plans for school in the fall. /1 #nspoli
In fact, I think you’ll agree Tim, that I have been a strong and consistent voice for public education and access to it since I was elected. Our caucus has pressed that children have a right to an education. /2
We have pressed for a plan for parents so that we don’t see the continuing trend of women’s disappearance from the workforce as families are forced to decide between work and childcare. /3

2)@JanetHazey, Pres. @NS_nurses, said staffing levels at #Northwood have long been a major concern of hers.

3) @LindaMacNeil3 of #Uniforsaid there will be a meeting of the health-care unions on Thurs. She said the call for a public inquiry will likely be a topic of discussion.

(In early April, many Nova Scotians were asking why NS wasn’t adopting the BC model, which included ensuring our #HealthcareHeroes were giving FT hrs at 1 facility. #nspoli
3) As early as March 13, Nova Scotia healthcare unions were united in their call to @nshealth for PPE’s - #N95masks specifically - for all frontline workers.

Attention Halifax!

Be aware that the Northern Guard Halifax Chapter is still here, they are still recruiting, and they are still organizing. Don't be surprised if they start patrolling around #Halifax, #NovaScotia AGAIN.

Here is a list of their members
#nspoli #cdnpoli
This photo is the first big meeting a few weeks prior to starting Partols in Halifax. They have gone mostly silent since. With public confrontations, their VP Georgie Fagan quitting, and multiple negative media arcticles circulating, they stopped patrolling, for now...
"Casper Deghost" is a brand new member, who just received his NG leather vest as of mid-May.

1 of 80) Please bear with me, because the following is filled with plenty of foul language & I'm taking off the professional mask to speak with you as a human being. I've had enough & I've hit my limit, putting up with all the #MeToo bullshit in #CDNpoli, #ONpoli, & #CDNmedia
2) For the past 2 years, you've been ruining my #FamilyDay because the lot of you picked this holiday to shove an alleged child molester down my throat. It's the ultimate in sick behaviour & your choice of holiday is astounding, to champion the cause of #ChildPorn in #CDNpoli
3) What's worse is that forcing me to say those words actually makes me appear like I'm out-to-lunch. Your outrageous acts of gaslighting, censorship, & obstruction, have made it impossible for anyone to tell the most important #MeToo story in #CDNpoli currently
