If only the medical professionals begging for meaningful policy and leadership to address the out-of-control pandemic in Alberta could participate.

Maybe if they personally offer some extra cash, since that seems to be the way to gain access to the premier these days... #ableg
Why prioritize this crisis when you can plan and host a scotch and wine party instead?
At least Doug Ford, for all his faults, sincerely cares (or manages to seem as if he does) about the regular people affected and struggling in his province.
Ford's authenticity helps him here, I think. He really is, at heart, that folksy guy.

Kenney, however, is exactly the sort of "elitist" he accuses others of being.
Note: Authenticity in a politician doesn't equal capable and/or qualified. But it allows the person to be, more or less, exactly who/what they are (for better or worse.)

IMO, that's why Ford is able to seem sincere, while Kenney always comes across as just a bit too slick.

Building on my previous thread, a limited look at the path to the current "Great Reset" hysteria: #cdnpoli ImageImage
Lana and Goldy are anti-semitic white supremacists and Mark is a failed PPC candidate who is a hardcore conspiracy theorist. #cdnpoli

(Check the dates, too) ImageImageImageImage
Wolfish is a neo-Nazi, Mercola is conspiracy theorist and anti-vax charlatan (among other things) and Mattea is a Fellow at True North and a contributor to The Post Millennial and The Rebel.

And boy, does she have *a lot* to say about this. #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage

EC's tweet was as wise as possible under the circumstances.
It should get its own Heritage Minute.
TBH, since Trump and various far-right personalities are suddenly enamoured w Canada's election process, they should be firmly behind passing reform legislation in the US.

Widespread enfranchisement, and voting made fast and easy for everyone!

Call your office, maybe? ImageImageImage
It's laughable, but it's far too serious a situation to laugh at what they're doing.

Strong Bad voice: "It's over!"

Strong Sad voice: "That's not an improvement"
And from this one alone:

"Imma call you Josh"
"Sweet Cuppin' Cakes"
"I will do it nine times"
"Shuddit up you... shuddit up, me"
Pretty much just with the people I used to watch this with, tho.

Still, it's a fun thing.

Terrible news out of Denver being made worse by propagandists
Irresponsible and shameless, every one of these people.
And once again, The Post Millennial rushes out claims based on nothing.

This is a situation where having people who will act in your best interest, rather than simply lick your boots, matters.

For his own sake, Trump should be forced to rest and step back for the moment.
This does seem to be an appropriate time for the 25th Amendment.

For the sake of the country, yes, but also the wellbeing of the man himself.
