Jeeesusssss. Left the kid with G-parents and took the lady out for a night to unwind after this hectic week. At the James in #yxe and surrounded by the same Skparty clowns responsible for our living nightmare. So much for getting away from it all.
Moe is standing 10 feet from me. Should I ask for that apology??
So.... we asked for the apology. Told him he needs to listen to the HC experts. He started w/ a politician's response, I told him not to bother. I definitely said some things I won't repeat here and was asked to leave the lounge.
To clarify, we were the only non-SKParty patrons in the lounge. The good folks at the James didn't so much kick us out as we were already leaving for the next part of our date.
No security was present (or necessary). Moe is insulated by a complete lack of empathy for the regular ppl of SK, and Don 'DUI @ 11AM On A Weekday' McMorris, who told us "this isn't the time or place for this."

Mkay, Don.
Moe had a cozy 15 min. chat w/ party donor Grant Kook, who was sitting beside us. I asked the Premier if Grant was paying for everyone's drinks since got that nice $3.3M bailout from the province. Moe was visibly gobsmacked this. Hit a nerve, maybe?…
Didn't plan this. Didn't want this. Couldn't have just snuck out without expressing myself.

One thing is certain - I'm angry, I'm motivated, and I'm paying attention. This is not the time to be complacent. I'm going to do everything I can to hold the gov't accountable.

Some thoughts/observations from our day at the legislature. Will try to keep this 🧵short.

First a fact: @PremierScottMoe & the @SaskParty are responsible for the HC crisis we find ourselves in. They were presented with the modelling in June and chose to lift restrictions anyhow
My daughter's health, her future, is being used to subsidise the "SK Summer". She is one of many vulnerable, medically compromised people suffering for Moe's short-term thinking and pathological need to fight the feds.
Kudos to @ryanmeili and the opposition caucus for prosecuting the gov't.

It was surreal to hear our situation debated in detail from the public gallery. When asked to apologise to us, Moe turned his back to us and motioned for @MerrimanPaul to respond. Infuriating.

Specialists believe my 11MO may have cerebral palsy. She needs an MRI and eye surgery, both have been indefinitely postponed due to a lack of resources. Today I learned she will no longer receive physiotherapy b/c staff at the Kinsmen Children's Centre have been redeployed.
Early intervention for my daughter is critical, I am told. The crisis unfolding in #sask may have life-long impacts on my child's quality of life. I feel absolutely helpless.
With this in mind, I'd like to send a message directly to @PremierScottMoe & the @SaskParty: There are much worse outcomes than the economic inconvenience of a temporary shutdown; by not taking action you are punishing babies, not the vaccinated.

I had a private audience with @PremierScottMoe, Don Morgan (@SaskMLA), and other members of the #SaskParty caucus some years ago. I was advocating for increased supports in the #north for ppl w/ intellectual disabilities.
Jurisdictional barriers are a *huge* roadblock in the north w/ a pop. of ~80% FN (on-reserve/off-reserve, fed/prov hot potato). I talked about the legacy of the residential school system, that FN families didn't want to send loved ones away for care.
I told them that some mothers in the north, so desperate for critical supports for their children, would lie and tell social workers they had consumed alcohol during pregnancy. You see, there are in- school supports for FASD, but not for autism & other complex diagnoses.

Infuriating. @PremierScottMoe and the SP are unable to carry out their most basic mandate; to protect citizens of SK. Dodging accountability only highlights their cowardice & ineptitude. 1/7
I had day surgery 2 days ago. Grateful it wasn't canceled, but this morning I'm experiencing neg. side effects. Was instructed to visit the ER in this situation. Currently weighing the risk of visiting the ER vs continued rectal bleeding 🥺. 2/7
My 11MO daughter needs surgery and an MRI to help our amazing #HCWs establish a diagnosis for her developmental delays. Both procedures and resultant time-sensitive treatments will be delayed as #Sask spirals deeper into this #COVID19 nightmare. 3/7
