Any Liberal MP can't really say, "It's not a hill I'm willing to die on" given the most recent assertion by @JustinTrudeau that "We're very much on track" (1:20)

Now he faces glory or ignominy, something that will make or break his reputation. 1/3

#COVID19 #vaccine #cdnpoli

"But Canada is unlikely to get any doses from those three companies directly until at least April, and confusion about deliveries of vaccines has thrown Canadian confidence in the Liberal government’s vaccine rollout into a tailspin."


The Government has since backtracked on Trudeau's comments of 20M AstraZeneca vaccine shipments.

With little clarity, MP @MarkGerretsen #YGK now finds himself in a tenuous position as he dutifully (and mechanically) repeats this in a situation.

Correction: Delete 'in a situation'.

'Human error' ▫︎ 'Accidental' AND now possible 'Infiltrators'.

The denial by #Iran #IRGC with its "thousand possibilities" is ridiculous.

☞ *2 missiles* 30 seconds apart is NOT accidental.

Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR), if the pilots survived the initial detonation, 1/2
would reveal the emergency transmission from a civilian aircraft under attack and audibly identifying itself in its last moments. The second missile silenced further communication.

Investigation will have to squarely address what (hellish) motivation would seek to destroy a
civilian aircraft, deliberately.

A thorough and objective investigation, competently conducted, cannot avoid the one looming question, the 'elephant in the room': «WHO» or «WHAT» was on board #PS752Flight that resulted in the decision to destroy a civilian aircraft with

It would seem so, Mr. MACDONALD @TypesAndSpells

* IF I MAY, I'm not unsympathetic with @MichelleRempel and her sharing how #pandemic has had a real impact on her life.

THAT SAID, I her reference to @CBCNews as "vulturous" was a bit much.

"[@palkisu via @WIONews] Farmers in #India are protesting. And some politicians outside India have appointed themselves their spokespersons. Did the farmers ask them to? Most likely not. Are they helping the cause of the farmers? Certainly not."

WHAT FOLLOWS is embarrassing. /2
Loss of #UNSC seat bid by🌐PM @JustinTrudeau was a heavy blow, underscored by its intense and costly diplomatic push. It is not possible to enter the thoughts of the Prime Minister and know to what extent (if any) Canada’s latest candidacy for Secretary General of #OECD now /3
motivates his actions. Nothing happens in a vacuum. AND, in this instance, for whatever reasons @JustinTrudeau made the decision to not only speak out publicly, but to also brush off India's subsequent criticism. Doing so publicly reasonably equates with a desire to be seen. /4

"Thank you, 'Ian Prittie'."

RECEIVED (albeit, unsolicitied). Nonetheless,it got me thinking ...

A type of Word Cloud emerged: "Williamsville Corridor Plan"•"lower parking ratio"•"modal shift"•"more carbon friendly"•"most progressive approach to parking management" ...
"Climate Change Emergency"•"policy direction"• "walkability"•"alleviate some pressure on housing market" and many more.

@MayorPaterson neatly sums up: "(1:28)the result will be more housing, increased affordability and a reduced carbon footprint."

Keeping this short,reasons exists for bona fide skepticism(i.e. savings from not constructing expensive underground parking will be translated forward into final unit cost). Not necessarily so. Don't be surprised, market forces will in all likelihood ultimately prevail.

The 'Good Book' states: "let him who is without sin cast the first stone."

Yet MP @MarkGerretsen #YGK pays no heed himself to such and doesn't mention HE ALSO IS NOT FAULTLESS when it comes to respecting the rules in #HoC committee.

Here's ONE example:

#WEscandal #cdnpoli
☞ GERRETSEN interrupts MP @ToddDohertyMP [12:02:08] and then proceeds to interject again with a childish swipe during a formal Point of Order. [12:02:43]

Meeting No. 2 #PROC - Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (6 OCT)
THAT SAID, Mr. GERRETSEN dId not hesitate to angrily rebuke Mr. DOHERTY during the previous meeting for what he perceived as an interruption to his speaking time. [17:46:43]

WITHOUT ANY EXAGGERATION, reaction to a Tweet by @MarkGerretsen has been (very) strong and overwhelming negative.

For someone who infrequently visits Twitter and who usually confines himself largely to #LPC talking points, he generally garners a dozen or so comments ...
this Tweet has already collected «724» comments. Reviewing several hundred, I counted eight (8) neutral or supportive.

Frame 1 presents a sampling in a collage of Quote Tweets and Frame 2, Comments. Many could not be used here due to their 'strong wording'. The reader
can make their own judgement. Suffice it to say, CDNs want Members of Parliament with emotional maturity. A modicum of humility is also seen as desirable.
