Weil ich gestern in #Frankfurt beinahe (wieder Mal) von einem Radfahrer fast angefahren worden wäre, als ich als Fußgänger bei Grün die Kreuzung überquerte:

Unsere Partnerstadt #Toronto ist da sehr viel fußgängerfreundlicher!

@Stadt_FFM @OBPeterFeldmann #aussteigen
@Stadt_FFM @OBPeterFeldmann Dort halten Radfahrer tatsächlich an roten Ampeln an. Dort fahren Radfahrer wo sie hingehören: auf Radwegen oder auf der Straße.

Sie nehmen sich nicht großzügig heraus, Rechte von Schwächeren = Fußgängern zu beschneiden.

#aussteigen #Verkehrswende
@Stadt_FFM @OBPeterFeldmann In 12 Tagen #Toronto, in denen wir täglich 10-20 km durch die Stadt gelaufen sind, begegneten mir dort auf dem Bürgersteig ganze 3 ja wirklich DREI Radfahrer! 1 Kind. 1 anscheinend Betrunkener. Und 1 Mann vollgepackt mit Einkaufstüten.

#China built a surveillance database on Americans from stolen/hacked data, such as the #OPM hack, and some US software developers helped them build & implement it.

I’d love to know who those (treasonous, IMO) developers were.
According to the insider, the database is very similar to China’s social credit scoring system that tracks every detail of Chinese citizen’s lives, upon which China Asians them a “freedom score.”
The software they used to build it out was originally a #BigData analytics program for #SmartCities, like the one Google wants to build in #Toronto.…

1. Since there is no Robert Mueller in Canada, tasked with investigating foreign influence campaigns in Canadian elections, I urge all Canadians to at least read chapter II. Russian “Active Measures” Social Media Campaign of the #MuellerReport. #cdnpoli
2. You have all likely witnessed the use of troll-farms & bots to amplify paid troll accounts, supporting #DougFord, #JasonKenney & #AndrewScheer. One troll account tweeting pro Ford in the lead up to #Ontario’s election claimed to be from #Toronto. But mistakenly used Toronto OH
3. Fake #Facebook accounts have been active on the pages of front groups like #YellowVestsCanada & in comment sections of the FB pages of major media outlets like the #CBC.

FYI, a question currently before the Superior Court of Ontario regarding the 2018 #Toronto Municipal Elections to be answered is:

“Whether the Election is valid?”

There was already a ruling in the Superior Court that the Clerk shall retain the ballots.

#TOpoli #electionTO
#Toronto’s City Clerk is required to answer the following questions:

👉🏿 the Clerk is to publicly address how she verifies that each ballot cast is assigned to the right Candidate & what happens when votes are not rightly accounted for;

#TOpoli #electionTO #transparency

👉🏿 the Clerk is to to publicly explain how #democracy is ensured in our elections in Toronto;

👉🏿 the Clerk is to publicly explain what equitable measures are in place to ensure democracy in #Toronto Elections;

@trapdinawrpool Why would John Tory want to draw any attention to the Court of Appeal’s pending review of Justice Belobaba’s Decision to uphold the Constitutio, democracy and representation rights?

John Tory wants to minimize any attention to the Court being packed on Monday & Tuesday.

@trapdinawrpool John Tory would prefer Torontonians be ignorant & passive about protecting our rights while he & the Province work towards selling off #Toronto to their friends.

A Public who knows its rights expects its rights to be upheld, protected & ensured.

I hope @JohnTory reconsiders this position, because there are NO OTHER OPTIONS for rooming house tenants, so the loss of rooming houses necessarily results in an increase in homelessness. TODAY there are more than 5,000 rooming house tenants across the city at risk
of losing their housing due to predatory landlords. If you think homelessness in #Toronto is bad now, imagine adding 5,000 more homeless people to the situation. 5,000 people who aren't homeless due to mental health issues or because they're refugees, but because we
have a Mayor who doesn't happen to like the kind of housing they live in. Is this really the legacy you want to leave, @JohnTory? The creation of a perfectly preventable homelessness crisis of epic proportions? People dying on the street b/c landlords want more money? #topoli

I was leaving work and saw a bunch of cops and a blonde woman in the area behind the Nathan Phillips Square stage. she looked familiar so I looked closer and yep, it was F*ith G*ldy. (thread)
she and a group of her supporters had come there to antagonize the people who had gathered at the square to observe the International Day to End Racism. #FightRacism
I only caught the tail end of the event. an undocumented immigrant spoke passionately about human rights and asylum. Colombian artist Ruben Esguerra serenaded the crowd with music.

No other context to be considered here. Senator David Tkachuk was talking about how the #YellowVests #unitedwerollforcanada protesters "Rolled here" to #Ottawa over past few days. So they drove their trucks there. Then said he wants them to "roll" over Liberals. #cdnpoli
I could "roll" over to the scene of the Fredericton shooting in about 20 minutes. If I stood there and recorded a video where I call for people who drive cars, who "roll" them around, to start "rolling" over Conservatives would I not face some consequences? #Toronto #cdnpoli
We pay for Senator David Tkachuk's subscription to #HamishMarshall's Rebel Media.

The same Rebel Media cited as a source of information as the Fredericton shooter.

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.

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

Accessibility is a right- not an option!

My entire #CommunityWellness #inclusion Mayoral platform centres #accessibility as a priority.

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


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.

Together we succeed @mcourcel!
