1/ Here's something that just hit me..

Everyone wanted to help @jkenney win, so they ran a kamakazi candidates, broke election laws, laundered money, and essentially lied for him. But when it came time for investigations, _everyone_ kept evidence.

2/ Everyone is using their get out of jail free card.

Jason doesn't have to worry about "who talked?", because _everyone_ did. How bad of a person must you be that when people help you break the law, they keep evidence that buries you in every sense?

3/ There's a saying that "snitches get stiches".. to piece their exit strategy together. I guess it's playing out as it's meant to.

Jason Kenney and Jeff Calaway will get most severe penalties, while others will get fines and reprimands.

4/ But what I find comical is certain people playing pro-kenney when secretly they are handing his ass to authorities.

People like Bianca (who mysteriously vanished from social media), @boehmerB who's singing like Pavarotti. #ableg #abpoli #abvote
5/ And even with all the investigations and clear as day evidence, there's a faction of Albertans that will still likely vote for him. To those people I ask:

If he did all this to attain power, what do you think he'll do to keep it? #ableg #abpoli #abvote
6/ He's attacking children and the most vulnerable persons in our Province. Creating two tiered health care systems. Wanting teachers to out #lgtbq children to their parents. Who does that?

7/ Have you seen a coming out go badly in a family situation? I have and it was ugly. My son did; he told me. I tried to smooth it over with the parents and when that didn't work I let them know their daughter was going to be with us. She was safe. #ableg #abpoli #abvote
8/ That young lady needed support and she got it, for 5 months. She stayed here, until she turned 18 and was able to get supports to move out on her own. To this day she's never spoken to her Father again, but has spoken to her Mother. Twice. #ableg #abpoli #abvote
9/ Want to know who she does talk to? Her friends. Her therapist. Her Aunt who lives in Austrailia. Me. And everyone else who supported her unconditionally. Her coming out didn't change who she was. She was always awesome. #ableg #abpoli #abvote
10/ But this is what @jkenney wants teachers to get involved with before a child may be ready to come out to their parents. Maybe that child knows more than the teacher does. Maybe the parents are raving homophobes in private, but all smiles at school. #ableg #abpoli #abvote
11/ Outing a child before their ready, or the people receiving the news are ready can have disasterous consequences. There are children sleeping on our streets because their parents kicked them out for being gay.

Broke family. Broken child. Broken lives. #ableg #abpoli #abvote
12/ So I beg you, plead with you not to make the mistake of putting these people in power. It takes a village to raise a child, so let's be that village where the only thing that matters is safety for our children. If we don't protect them, who will?
