A thread because I can't keep up with all the agendas, minutes, live streams and municipal machinations. If you're sitting in council chambers in Ontario, you need to DO BETTER! If your discussions and decisions sound anything like 10, 5, or even 2 years ago, you must stop now!
Everything you decide on today needs to be radically different than ever before. You need to stop taking new land and putting it under concrete. You need to make space for more people in places where stuff is easy to get to so they can walk. You need to stop pillaging the future!
The world is on fire. Everything left that's natural needs to be put into service to fight climate change NOW. Fields, meadows, wetlands, forests, we need all of them! If you're thinking about a new highway, a new airport, a new warehouse, a new subdivision on virgin land, STOP!

This is what structural stigma looks like: Hard hit #Peelregion explicitly excluding physicians working in psychiatry/addictions from vaccination despite the fact that many work in high risk congregate community settings with vulnerable populations. #onpoli @ROPpublichealth
There are many colleagues in #Peel who work in community settings like group homes, shelters, outreach, shared care, etc. Many who see complex and high risk patients in person. This kind of policy decision reflects biases baked into the system.
Provincial guidelines specify that ALL patient facing health workers should be prioritized. They also specify prioritizing non patient facing hospital workers. They don’t call for excluding all community docs working in addictions or psychiatry.

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

#Hydronym and #hydronomastics both derive from Ancient #Greek ὕδωρ / húdōr (water) + ὄνομα / ónoma (name). The Greek island of Skiatho...
#Hydronyms tend to outlast other #toponyms, even when new #languages and cultures displace earlier ones.

#England, #EastAnglia, #Essex, and #Sussex are named for the #Angles and #Saxons; but #Trent, #Ouse, #Thames, #Severn, and #Avon are older #Celtic and #RomanoBritish names. A map showing the main rive...

🚨 #Ontario made the call today to re-implement modified stage 2 restrictions in #Ottawa, #Toronto, and #Peel due to the resurgence in #COVID19 cases and hospitalizations. 📈

(1/20) Some thoughts on where COVID-19 is going in the province. Thread.🧵⬇️
(2/20) This should not be a surprise to anyone. It has been apparent that COVID-19 is once again on an exponential trajectory in Ontario for at least several weeks.

(3/20) A confluence of recent events—the testing backlog, the transition to appointment-based testing, the suspension of contact tracing—have made daily case numbers in the province less reliable, especially in hard-hit areas like Toronto.

Some funny goings on in #Liverpool under the stewardship of #JoeAnderson 👀

My current viewpoint might be influenced by some of the TV shows I watched during lockdown #Subura #Gomorrah #GangsOfLondon #LineOfDuty

But, it has a whiff of a Mafia fiefdom🤯…
- Merseyside Police investigating City Council
- Lancashire Police - #OperationSheridan
- Serious Fraud Office, North West Serious Crimes Unit & GMP investigating property scams
- Council finances not being signed off by an auditor for the last 5 years

Something smells fishy🐟👀
Now, I realise it sounds bonkers to link TV shows about the Italian Mafia and how they infiltrate local councils and municipalities - I mean, that wouldn't happen in Lancashire or Merseyside... would it!?

Well, ye. It would...

Have a look 👀…
