"Homophobic cowboy gets upset about a pride crosswalk in #Saskatoon."

#skpoli #skpride #yxe

Following investigation, the 71-year-old man from Quill Lake, SK was charged with causing a disturbance and is expected to appear in court in November.

#saskatoon #skpoli

I wasn’t able to find a working website for the Village of Quill Lake, where the man is from, but they do have a FB page.

If you’ve made it this far down the thread and are in Saskatchewan or #Saskatoon, please consider following @SaskatoonPride. They’re the ones who were painting the #Pridewalk where this incident took place.

Really good thread about the #Delta variant (#B1617) which has become the dominant variant in the UK.👇

There are some informative short videos as well for people like myself who are not science experts, but like to have a base level of understanding.

How is #Alberta handling the #DeltaVariant?

“The Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary is dealing with several COVID-19 outbreaks, including 20 cases of the rapidly spreading delta variant, or B.1.617.2, in two units.”

#abhealth #covid19ab #ableg

A more infectious, more aggressive new strain taking hold in Alberta is a concern.

“but @calgarystampede will go ahead with #stampede2021🦠” (come hell or high fever.)

Why do this? Why invite the possibility of variants from everywhere in the world?

Stampede is Kenney’s last best chance for more social murder before the population is fully vaccinated.

Voting Conservative has consequences.

#ableg #UCPcorruption #Stampede
Hold on, what’s “social murder?”

Social murder is what happens when a society permits conditions that lead to an earlier death of people in a given socio-economic group or class. #ableg #onpoli #cdnpoli

@DennisRaphael01 explains here:

Wait, that sounds a bit like Conservative policy. 🤔

“The current conservative policy environment has made our society less healthy, more dangerous, less stable and more unequal.”

So are we going to talk about the fascist flag flying over @YEGPA HQ during the #yegcc elections this year?

Are next year’s police uniforms going to be MAGA hats and “I heart oil” hoodies?

#ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #DefundThePolice
I mean, “I heart oil” *is* Alberta’s MAGA hat.


Here’s a thread about systemic racism in policing with an Alberta focus.

Warning: Starlit tours and police brutality.

(I never did finish my conclusion, but maybe I’ll get back to it some day.)

@TaylorMadeYYC @N8V_Calgarian if you have suggestions I’m open to feedback.

Apparently 75% of the World's Mining Companies Are Based in Canada.

"And guess what? A lot of them are really, really irresponsible."


Apparently Canada has very lax laws surrounding mining. Like, we don't require foreign mines to report things like labour conditions?

"In 2010, the Canadian parliament voted against a proposed law that would have provided an avenue for mining companies to be held accountable for allegations of human rights abuses abroad."

Read the remarks from MP's about this bill here:

“On this day in 1919, under the banner of the One Big Union (OBU), approximately 6,500 miners in Alberta, Canada walked off the job during a dispute over wages, the cost of living allowance, and working conditions.”

It’a time to take notice of what’s happening in Nova Scotia.

“[Anti-maskers are] nothing more than an alt-right group that wants to protest things like science.”

@IainTRankin, Premier of NS.

Why are other leaders hesitant to say this?


On May 14th, the Nova Scotia Supreme Court granted an injunction to "prevent Freedom Nova Scotia and similar groups from staging illegal gatherings in defiance of Nova Scotia's public health orders."

I'm so envious. 😭

#nspoli #cdnpoli #COVIDIOTS

Yesterday NS was arresting people FOR ATTENDING an anti-mask rally.
