It's just Twitter - but I've watched immense pressure on social media cause politicians to do things - just to shut us up.

So, let's be loud. And united. If we all raise our voices - even in simple, straightforward ways, they *will* hear us.

Let's *do* democracy.
This is the *one, single* advantage we have over the asshats: there are more of us.

They're just louder.

If we want to keep our democracy healthy, we need to get loud, too.

We can do this.
And thank you.

Here's a reward.

This is Molly. New pack leader. Awesome dog. Do it for her :)

One of the reasons I'm so agitated by the response to the #FireGallant situation is that I'm currently engaged in what is best described as the "deprogramming" of a beloved niece who went to Alberta and fell into a @cherylgallant type rabbit hole.
The first week she just ranted and raved about Trudeau being a pedophile and communist agents taking over the Liberal party and the clear drive to turn Canada into a slave state. "You used to love Canada!" she screamed at me in frustration.
She's irrational and deeply frightened and claims the vaccine is simply a way to finish off what the virus started, turning us all into automotons.

She was a pretty normal teenager. More peace and love and hippie beads than the darkness she's in now.

"It is clear that policy responses to disinformation – including decisions by some policymakers not to address the issue – may advantage or disadvantage different political factions."
Follows this:

"... domestic political candidates, journalists, and citizens played major roles in promoting disinformation, and often did so to advance partisan interests ... For this and other reasons, policymaking to address disinformation has increasingly been politicized.

In a response to G&M, @erinotoole said, and I am not joking, “Canadians have other priorities and so do I.”

So democracy killing, society damaging, conspiracy theories by elected officials are not a priority.

Good to know, @CPC_HQ, good to know.

I'm pretty relieved to know that @s_guilbeault and the rest of the @liberal_party folks in the federal government DO understand just how big a deal this is.
Even the CRTC gets it.

Dear Liberal MPs,

Don't directly accuse, even with evidence, any other politicians of anything. This ensures it gets buried/dismissed by the press as "partisan".

Send it to a journalist or SM influencer you trust.

Otherwise, it will only exacerbate the problem.

This is war, of a kind. Tactics matter as much as strategy.
As an example, the original tweet by Liberal MP @JenOConnell_ had just over 1000 likes/RTs.

There are many folks with SM accounts who, had they broke this, would be in five digit shares and likes. Image

The headline and the thing its talking about are the same thing.
Words weighted and organized to make it dismissable as partisan bickering.

Which is why we need public oversight. Real oversight. So bad politicians can't hide in the "partisan" thing and good ones don't get trapped in it.

@JenOConnell_ should have leaked this to a journalist.

The @CPC_HQ push to call what's happening in China a "genocide", whose leader, @erinotoole, defended residential schools, called left leaning students the "dumbest" and did not support Canada's own self-declaration for much worse, sustained genocidal efforts, is peak 2021.
It bugs me on a cellular level that they believe the Uighurs deserve more from *Canada* than did the peoples from whom we wrested and then defaced this land upon which we stand, which was rightfully theirs, and then abused them, literally for centuries.
If you're not bothered by the fact that there's been no fist pounding or speech making or cries of inhumanity directed at the slow pace of reconciliation or clean water for our *own* genocide victims, and think they're being "tough", then frankly there's something wrong with you.
