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.

1. Spent all yesterday at the Radisson Hotel Toronto east near Victoria Park and Consumers, which is helping house 577 #refugee claimants. The place has been the site of harassment as of late, including an act of arson. #Toronto

news.vice.com/en_ca/article/…
2. Most attention as been focused on the arson attempt last Tues, which occurred right after fringe mayoral candidate Faith Goldy held a press conference outside of the hotel. The police have since released a photo/description of the suspect.
3. The individual in question is a woman, about 5'6"-5'8". She entered the hotel at about 1030pm last Tues. She allegedly had a gas canister. A rag was then stuck in the nozzle, lit. This set off the alarm and an alert worker tracked down the can and kicked it into the stairwell.

@mcourcel @GautamNath @Michael_TO2018 @MayorTorontoTom @jpformayor @jimruelformayor Thanks for asking @mcourcel!

@mcourcel @GautamNath @Michael_TO2018 @MayorTorontoTom @jpformayor @jimruelformayor My #CommunityWellness #inclusion Mayoral platform continued @mcourcel, accessibility is an election issue!

#ElectoralReform

I am an advocate for accessibility & disability rights.
Our City has been inaccessible for too long.
#Accessibility enforcement.
@mcourcel @GautamNath @Michael_TO2018 @MayorTorontoTom @jpformayor @jimruelformayor I chose YouTube & Twitter to share my Community wellness inclusion Mayoral platform because it guaranteed me audio for Community members who are Blind or have low vision and closed captioning for Community members who are Deaf or hard of hearing.

The important point to keep in mind regarding section 33 of the Charter of Rights & Freedoms is why it was included. Think about what was going on at the time and why the Charter was even created.

Sect. 33 is a white supremacy tool that was included to make white men feel safe.
Now that this fact has been said, let’s get to the heart of addressing the attempt to abuse power in order to maintain white supremacy.

It’s 2018, time to rule section 33 unconstitutional when used to subvert Canadians’ inalienable rights to a free & democratic society.

History has taught us many lessons.

Some people learn from them and some people don’t.

During the time when then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and other white male elected Representatives were working on ensuring that underrepresented and marginalized Communities were protected

Regardless of whether or not its a done deal, all candidates should be honest & open about where they stand on the LRT vs Subway issue because it sheds light on their decision making skills. Failure to do so is a disservice to the residents they strive we serve.

#TOpoli #ONpoli
Some of my opponents are too cozy with the Mayor to speak out about what's truly best for Scarborough - and that clearly isn't a subway.
The argument of "something is better than nothing" may be logically correct, but we are better than that. #Toronto has a serious fiscal problem so we need to use every penny as wisely as we can and a subway is an affront to that principle.

Dear Seniors,

I love you!

I’m writing to you as your TORONTO Mayoral Candidate because the media & supporters of status quo are doing their very best to exclude Black Candidates voices- as usual.

Have you been co-signing maintaining the status quo?

#TOpoli #ElectionTO #TOvote
Have you shaken hands and made agreements against the Public’s interests, specifically Black Candidates in order to maintain the status quo?

Are you amplifying voices presented to you by the establishment?

Have you turned away from your public chants of “end racism, stop racists, etc...” during this Election period and are instead prepared to publicly/quietly push what the establishment has been pushing just to get the results that you say you’re against?

One of #Canada #Ottawa's largest mosques loses charity status for promoting ‘hate and intolerance’ via @StewartBellNP
globalnews.ca/news/4373959/o…
“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the @CanRevAgency Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the #tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.
