Sure, we all liked the Dukes of Hazzard as kids, but I'm wondering if our premier is aware of the very real racist connections to the Confederate flag on top of this car and to General Lee himself.

And if so... why post this? #skpoli
The auction is part of the Parkside Demolition Derby on Saturday. I get that they're trying to raise money for mental health... but... *facepalm*
Know why this bugs me?

Last week my black colleague in Saskatoon walks home from work. Says “hi” to a woman she passes on the sidewalk.

“Know your place n****r. You think you can walk beside me?”

Woman called her “fucking n****r” three times. In broad daylight. Caswell Hill.

So you want to change the world for the better?
A Saskatchewan version:
Step 1: turn 18 because you can't vote otherwise. Spend the first 18 years of your life without political influence unless you're an unusual character involved in party politics, student council and activism.
If you're not 18 this year, you're probably too late to take the lazy vote-only route. You have to take the lead like Greta.
Step 2, you write the local newspaper to express your concerns about there being less than #ElevenYears left to make at least 6.5% / year reductions to carbon emissions if we want to have a hope of surviving the climate crisis.

You’ve probably noticed shares from Prairie Freedom Movement, or their offshoots/websites. They’ve installed pro-separatist billboards in AB, SK, and MB.

Their messaging includes anti-globalist, anti-UN, & anti-Islam sentiments. #cdnpoli #abpoli #mbpoli #skpoli

Their support for #yellowvestscanada is obvious. /2

Question period stats with Ryan Meili asking something from a member of the public asking about Weyburn council decision and what’s being done. Min. Merriman says council is meeting today at 3. Next meeting is next Monday. #skpoli
Meili now asking if premier will declare Jan. 29 a day against hate and intolerance as was asked for by Muslim leaders who were in Sask. last week. Premier Moe says no place for Islamophobia, racism or hate of any kind. Says govt. has Jan. 29 day under consideration.
Moe says speaking out against hate and racism should happen every day. Meili asks why premier said he was not concerned with cabinet ministers attended yellow vest rallies where anti immigration and Muslim sentiments have been shared.

@JustinTrudeau did not direct the Attorney General to intervene in the #SNCLavalin case, so therefore he respected the independence of the AG which was confirmed by JWR @Puglaas in her testimony.

#Cdnpoli

The #CPC passed the Director of public Prosecutions act in 2006, clearly the AG retains political discretion to override decision's by the director (DPP) on whether to prosecute.

#Bcpoli #Abpoli #Skpoli #Ontpoli #Cdnpoli
When the Attorney General decides whether to initiate and conduct a prosecution on behalf of the federal Crown, Crown counsel must consider two issues:

And of course, that's the point. The #skpoli government has almost no chance of winning this legally. But the issue stays alive and well for the next election: There Carbon tax legal battle looks set to haunt politics for foreseeable future leaderpost.com/news/saskatche… #cdnpoli
And sure, there is always a legal argument to be made that sounds plausible. And lots of government lawyers will work extremely hard (with lots of billable hours) to argue this or that about s. 91 and s. 92. But the federal #cdnpoli gov’s ability to tax is fairly clear. #skpoli
But I’ll bet dollars to donuts that the #skpoli gov sees this as a win-win-win scenario. Win in court (unlikely) and great, no tax. Don’t win in court, but keep anti-carbon tax issue alive for 2020, great (for them, less for the environment). #cdnpoli

#PnPCBC Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau's response in #Winnipeg to Jody Wilson-Raybould's resignation:

#bcpoli #Abpoli #Skpoli #Ontpoli #Cdnpoli
The PM was surprised & disappointed on news of @Puglaas resignation.

If the Former AG Jody Wilson felt the government had not done a proper job, it was her responsibility as AG to let PM @JustinTrudeau know about this or any issues.

#CtvNews Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau was asked whether he’ll waive solicitor-client privilege....Also the Unitended consequences on 2 court cases. #SNCLavalin

Senator Batters, Elections Canada noticed when your party tried to cheat - well, did cheat - in the 2006 election. They noticed the whited-out and photocopied fake invoices used to solicit reimbursements from the taxpayer. All organized at campaign HQ. #cdnpoli #skpoli
Fortunately, too, CRTC noticed Senator Batters' party trying to use anonymous robocalls to intimidate the Saskatchewan Electoral Boundaries Commission with a view to trying to gerrymander for Conservative benefit. Fine, $78,000.
Oh, and BTW, the Harper Conservatives legislated against Elections Canada encouraging Canadians in Canada to vote, to exercise their franchise. They just don't want voters to vote. But they will tout their support of some kind of imaginary democracy where voting is discouraged.

1. Thread - Why I know Saskatchewan new trespassing law is racist bullshit. I live on a small farm where my husband grew up, at Meeting Lake, between 2 cabin developments. In 2009, when we moved back out here, I made ALOT of enemies by launching a war #skpoli #reconciliation
2. On cabin owners and campers from ATVing on our land and in our yard. PEOPLE FROM THE CITY WE DON'T KNOW. It had become a heavily traveled, they threw garbage everywhere, there was poaching. I put up no trespassing signs and chased people out. FOR YEARS. #tresspassing
3. By doing this, I became the single most hated person in the area. People glared at me. People screamed at in me community meetings that I was "ruining their holidays and had no right" Someone threatened to run me over with their QUAD after I caught them in my garden. #skpoli
