A denier asked me the other day: "why should we be listening to some 16 year old kid?"

"Would you prefer to listen to climate scientists?"


When the kids in America had enough of the mass-shootings & took on the NRA, inevitable response from the adults who like things exactly as they are was: "they're puppets." It's what you say rather than listening, let alone stepping up #GretaInAlberta
One of the prime messages @GretaThunberg makes over and over again can be distilled down to "listen to the science and act accordingly."

Imagine adults thinking that's controversial. #GretaInAlberta

Fear & Loathing in Alberta: the Big Fat Lie of Election 2019 THREAD #GentThreads #abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli #yeg #yyc
First of all, thank you Edmonton, for being the intellectual & moral hub of this entire province. The rest of us, evidently, were all too ready to elect to power a team already revealed as white supremacists, homophobes, misogynists, frauds, criminals & climate deniers /2 #abpoli

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
PFM shared numerous live feeds from the #unitedweroll convoy /3

I noticed this today, and realized we’ve been neglecting Pat King and Jay Riedel, and their “town halls” across SK and AB (so far.) /1

#YellowVestsCanada #cdnpoli
They were #UnitedWeRoll organizers, and they appear to have capitalized on their popularity, complete with merchandise for sale, under their new project “Rollin’ With Pat and Jay.” Here’s a sample of the kind of stuff they post. /2

Note that the first screenshot in the previous tweet is the rebranded Nfld YV page.

This is funny: an entirely unrelated Compact from 2015, but hey, let’s feed that UN conspiracy garbage a bit more.

Their page and group are just an echo of YVC /3

#YellowVestsCanada members are upset that they can't share the video of the #NewZealandTerroristAttack, so much so that it's a government conspiracy to protect the videos credibility.
@facebook allows this.
More comments. The black rectangles are blocking still captures of the video. You bet your ass I reported that.
These comments stuck out for me as particularly gross and heinous, so I looked into them a little further:

I fired Faith and I don't have a lot of time for Scheer. But this is just a lie: "Scheer shared the same stage as Bernier & Goldy".


Scheer & Bernier gave speeches on the #UnitedWeRoll stage; Faith was banned; she spoke for five minutes on a scissors lift, off the hill.
I mean: "Goldy, speaking briefly from the back of a truck". No; it was one of those little scissor lifts, like a mini-elevator used to stock a warehouse.

It's a trivial error; but it's so obvious none of the reporters were actually there, or even watched it on video.
This convoy was not my project (we had a reporter on it for the whole trip: But if I were an organizer or participant, I'd be issuing defamation notices against those who smeared me as a Nazi, based on false facts. It's Covington; it's Jussie Smollett.

The #UnitedWeRoll protesters expressed disappointment that PM Trudeau did not come out to speak to them. They have been photographed wearing shirts and carrying signs that say Trudeau should be charged with treason, or hanged. 1/
And then Senator Tkachuck. you know, the CPC Senate house leader during the Harper regime, he calls on all the trucker to "roll over" all Liberals so the legislation they passed could be disappeared. 2/
Even if he wanted to interact with this group, I have to think our PM's security detail were very discouraging. It doesn't go down well in one's record to have the PM shot on one's watch. Especially since the last political assassination in Canada was in 1970. 3/

Hey Lefties, I trust you've all denounced all of your alt-left extremists, right? Since leftie-logic dictates that one extremist supporter is representative of the entire right wing, then Trudeau, Singh, and May must be violent extremists too, Right?

Gee, I've never seen a #YellowVest Canadian build an effigy of the PM and advertise and organize a huge event where dozens of people, even children, beat the crap out of the PM and set him on fire.... But this is fine. As long as it's not Trudeau, right? #UnitedWeRoll 2/
Hmmm... Can you hear it? Hear these dangerous violent alt-left extremists?
I don't recall Trudeau ever renouncing these people. Some even got big promotions in Trudeau's gov't, even though we're told, this kind of thing has "no place in Canada."3/

Is it just me, or do others have the impression that #cdnmedia is either bought and paid for by the CPC, or intimidated by them? The #SNCLavalin coverage/speculation has gone well into the realm of mind-numbingly boring and absurd... #cdnpoli 1/16
A rumour, printed in a right-leaning newspaper, without source, which for all we know, was planted in the reporter's ear by someone in the CPC, has dominated Canadian news coverage for more than a week... 2/16
And won't #cdnmedia all look silly if it turns out to be a non-issue? Meanwhile, we have a convoy of dubious provenance that rolled across the prairies and into Ottawa and #cdnmedia all cheerfully interview them as though they know what they are talking about... 3/16

This is disheartening to me. When I see top-level politicians throwing their weight behind this #unitedweroll convoy, I get very frustrated. These people have a staff, and that staff should do homework on this movement.
2/ The #UnitedWeRoll started when a bunch of yellow vests co-opted the pipelines and energy cause and hard work done by @rally4resources and @CanadaAction who have organized years of effective action to advocate for Canadian resources and the common sense development of them.
3/ After a number of respectful, well organized and well attended events (including convoys), a pair of people started the go fund me campaigns that eventually grew into #UnitedWeRoll. They capitalized on confusion and boiling frustration and raised a bunch of money before

NOT SHOCKING (ethics violations).

Trudeau PMO interfering in criminal prosecutions pressuring Attorney General to abandon criminal prosecution of his cronies. When she refused Trudeau fired her. Now he's denying it!

Times' Up Trudeau - Criminal investigation NOW. #cdnpoli
WATCH Trudeau lie to the nation & how easily he does so.

🇨🇦journalist @ezralevant (regularly vilified by Trudeau govt & state media CBC) points to system flaws:

Attorney General "duty of confidentiality to client" Only Trudeau himself can waive!!


🇨🇦 Parliament: Trudeau Government grilled re PMO interference in criminal prosecution at highest level.

Smirking sheepishly, refusing to answer question. Believe themselves above law & untouchable
