The Nick Kouvalis Rap Sheet.

(Sad that this is long enough to be a thread)

2007 - charged with uttering death threats against MP Jeff Watson.
2010 - Campaign manager / chief of staff for Rob Ford. (Kouvalis was once described as the ‘Ford Whisperer’.
2011 - Engaged in purposeful disinformation campaign about Irwin Cotler’s “upcoming retirement”.

2016 - Pleads guilty to driving under the influence.

2017 - Campaign manager for Trumpian Con leadership candidate Kellie Leitch.
2017 - Resigns after calling U of W prof Emmett Macfarlane a ‘traitor’ and a ‘cuck’.

2017 - Charged with public intoxication and break / enter into a Kelsey’s restaurant.

More recently...
2021 - Hired as Doug Ford’s senior adviser.
2021 - Greek Easter Sunday - meltdown / mass blocking spree of ‘partisans’...AKA anyone who disagrees with him.

2021 - insulting people by calling them ‘abortion survivors’ (see attached screen shot)
This, #Folks, is the shining star that @fordnation has employed as a senior adviser. Given Duggie’s past, perhaps it’s not a surprise.

(Makes one wonder what Christy Clark was thinking back in 2013.)

An education thread.

This past week, as a ‘start-to-the-day-reflection’, I shared one of those “If the World Was A Village of 100 People” type videos with my class.

I’ve seen them before. But the stats are always sobering.
15% are illiterate.
13% have no clean water.
20% don’t have electricity. 25% don’t have adequate shelter.
75% don’t have internet access.
90% can’t access post secondary education.
A staggering 70% are malnourished.
1% are starving...a ‘small’ number, but that translates to 75 million people.

What does it all mean?
It means that despite the struggles of the past year...with lockdowns, masks, sanitizing, virtual this and many ways, we’re very lucky.
