Thread. Long: I'm feeling a profound sadness. A deep sadness. One that is inhabiting my very core. Why? I've lived long enough to know what life was like before women won their necessary & long overdue rights. Trust me when I say that April 17, 1982 was a day filled with
boundless joy for women all over #Canada. Our rights were enshrined into our Charter of Rights & Freedoms on that day. It was a very long road from being legally considered “persons” to finally being treated – at least on paper – as equals under the law.

Now I'm seeing our very
hard won rights under attack. Particularly our right to a safe, medical abortion. What's stunning about the anti abortion laws being passed in states like #Alabama is the total lack of understanding about why an abortion is performed. The medical reasons include problems with the

I'm beginning to wonder if #Canadians are a bit on the masochistic side. Canada is doing very well. Employment is better than its been in 40 years. Our debt to GDP is the best in the G7. Child poverty's been reduced by 20%. Yet given the polls, it looks like we're seriously
considering changing horses in the middle of a stream. The horse we're riding now is strong & healthy. The one we are thinking about riding has a tapeworm. It needs much more food & care than we are able to provide. There's also a good chance that it's lame. But we don't know
that for sure because the lower half of its legs are under water & not visible. How can we not be happy, grateful, for the horse we have? Is it simply a matter of, to paraphrase Voltaire, Perfection being the Enemy of Best? Or are we masochistic? Wanting to feel pain so when a

@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

#LoveLettersToAlberta This is from the heart to #Alberta, not a journalist, so it's kinda sloppy. I'm disabled so I have lots of time to research. I'm white (an accident of birth, so I'm not special) and 6th generation Canadian. 1
Dear Alberta, 350,000 families in #Ontario whose breadwinner lost their well-paying jobs in manufacturing know how you feel with the energy business going through rough times. Hubby was a victim. 2
Some jobs went to the USA to states where they have "Right To Work for Peanuts". Some went to little brown people who aren't immigrants. The jobs went to their country. 3

'Based on his performance since the scandal broke in early February, even setting aside the merits of the SNC-Lavalin issue, @justintrudeau deserves to lose in the fall. cbc.ca/news/opinion/c…#cdnpoli
Andrew Scheer @AndrewScheer
This is crazy. The Office of the Ethics Commissioner is supposed to investigate conflicts of interest, not take part in them. This calls into question the entire office and the legitimacy of its investigations.

Trudeau, in my opinion, may be the biggest liar on planet earth today. He defended terrorist Omar Khadr more than his own lawyer did. Now, he’s saying that he knew nothing👇

When the hell is @ElectionsCan_E going to put an end to Hamish Marshall's meddling in elections across the country. "NB Proud" funded by "ModernMiracleNetwork" who's members all work for Calgary based energy co. Questerre. NB Proud hired Ballingall's co. ENOUGH! #cdnpoli #pnpcbc
Terrance Oakey was president of Merit Canada. Went to Hamish Marshall's co. OnePersuades. Merit Ontario gave Ontario Proud $50K. Then ONProud hired One Persuades paying over $30K for Advertising. Did Marshall give ONPr access to #CPC CIMS database during ON elxn? #cdnpoli #onpoli
Here is Terry Oakey with Premier Doug Ford at a Merit Ontario event on Sept. 24, 2018. This after Merit Ontario gave Ontario Proud $50K & then ONPr used that money to pay Oakey/Marshall's co. OnePersuades $30K for ads to help Ford win Ontario elxn. #Ontario #Onpoli #cdnpoli

As we head closer to the Holidays and a New Year, today seems like a good day to take stock @fordnation. So let’s do that. #onpoli. Here’s a snippet of your accomplishments since forming gov’t:
You cancelled the Green Energy Act and contracts, throwing contract law & the jobs of the future to the wind, sending a message to investors that #Ontario is in fact not open for business.
You ended cap & trade, irresponsibility claiming that this decision resulted in lower gas prices & offering no plan for the greatest challenge facing this generation and the next.

Today is #December6, the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Today we remember. *Beginning of thread*
We remember the 14 young women who went to class the morning of #December6, 1989 not thinking that they might not leave the school alive.
We remember Geneviève Bergeron, a second year engineering student who played clarinet and sang in a professional choir.

#Canadians must be mindful of encroaching #fascism as we approach the 2019 election. Given the 10 points outlined in the enclosed article, all eyes must be on the @CPC_HQ for anti #Democratic actions. #cdnpoli democracynow.org/2018/10/11/how… Some points from the list...
#3 - Anti-intellectualism. The intent to circumvent Corrections Canada in the Terri-Lynne McClintic case is a classic example anti-intellectualism & the desire to stir everyone up into an angry mob. #cdnpoli
#4 - Unreality & the need to smash the truth. Too many @CPC_HQ examples to list but the most dangerous is the fight against the carbon tax. a) It will put more money in our pockets than we spend, & b) The IPCC gives us a meager 12 years to turn the Titanic away from disaster.

This is a thread on the repealed #Ontario health & education curriculum. Let’s start with the most important point. IT IS NOT SEX ED. The curriculum is HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION. @fordnation uses hot button terms like #SexEd to fire up religious extremists
Before you make any comments regarding the content of the curriculum...read it: …consentcultureorg.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/health…
Since so many critics of the updated curriculum are aghast at the disgusting content to be taught to our innocent lil munchkins starting at the tender age of 5, this thread focuses only on gr 1-3
