#RemembranceDay2021 When you're a child of Holocaust Survivors, WWII is not ancient history. In a tiny part of the brain called the amygdala, where trauma gets free room & board, WWII is every day. But in the emotional rubble of the endless war, there is one positive.
My pride in & gratitude for @CanadianForces who punched well above their weight. Without their valor, two diminutive Hungarians, Miklosz & Rosza, imprisoned by history, and impaled by ideology, could never have met.
#RemembranceDay2021 Our Forces, our @CanadianForces fought heroically to remove the Nazi jackboot from my mother's throat. How do I thank them enough? #LestWeForget Image

Thread from @JessLReid "Like so many Canadians, I grew up consuming dairy, believing it to be an essential food. I never considered where it came from, beyond the cow who obviously just made milk for people."
"But undercover footage from an organic dairy farm in B.C., recently obtained and published by Animal Justice, exposed what I learned later in life: cows don’t make milk for us, they make it for their babies."
"And as part of standard farming practices, those newborn calves must be removed from their mothers in order for that milk to be rerouted for human consumption."

There has never been a day when I haven't been proud to be Canadian. But on this day, September 25, 2021, I am particularly proud of my country that refused to forget the names of two ordinary Canadians, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, the two #Michaels
who 1000 days ago were in the wrong place at the wrong time, taken by force and deprived of their human rights by the regime in Beijing that stole their freedom, put them in solitary confinement, forced them to endure a sham trial -convicted them for crimes they never committed.
Indeed the convictions themselves were crimes that continue to go unpunished in a world where expectations are low of countries governed by those who without the capacity to care about morality & humanity, only ideology & power. But on this day, Saturday, September 25th, 2021,

#ErinOToole is pledging to get the national vaccination rate above 90%. On motivating the unvaccinated, the #CPC leader says "You don't win people over by threatening them. You win them over by reaching out, talking to them, understanding their fears, answering their questions..
We need to persuade every Canadian that vaccines are safe, effective and our best route out of this crisis." #ErinOToole Dear Mr. O'Toole. Nobody is threatening the unvaccinated. They are threatening us. Vaccines are the only way out of the crisis. The science is crystal clear.
Every reasonable person knows it. For those who choose to remain unvaccinated, the only way to "secure the future" as you like to say, is to deprive them of privileges & opportunities to work & socialize with the rest of us. That means mandates.

A terrible day for the PM and the country he leads. His election message deeply flawed, his abandonment of our friends in Afghanistan, is painfully horrific. Re: his historically weak argument for an election. He is arguing that this parliament is making it difficult for him to
implement public safety measures & policy related to it. But there is no evidence for that. The most important measures he implemented required no approval from Parliament. He has during this pandemic been able to govern as if he had a majority. Budget,Throne speeches, approved.
Most important today, it's crystal clear that Canada is leaving many behind in Afghanistan who we made promises to. With our Embassy being shuttered & Kabul becoming Taliban controlled, we are abandoning many who sacrificed for Canada.

Have read some of the feedback today and can't help but notice a consistent thread. UCP supporters choose to say that I am anti - Albertan or bashing Albertans because I am questioning Kenney/UCP policies, re-tweeting today's @GlobeAndMail editorial.
Are all those Albertans who are retweeting and liking the editorial, also anti-Albertan? I don't hear the term anti-British Columbian applied to people who criticize Horgan gov't policy. I was never told that I was anti Manitoban when criticizing governments in that province.
Same for Ont and Quebec. So I just don't get it. If I'm critical of slamming the door on testing, tracing & isolating, how does that make me anti - Albertan? If I just didn't give a hoot about my neighbors in #ab I could easily support #UCP policy. Would that make me pro-Alberta?

Alberta to COVID-19: ‘What, me worry? " Each of these U-S states have a few things in common. They have relatively low vaccination rates. They have the Delta variant. And they’ve ditched public health restrictions. Who else has all that? Alberta."
"And Alberta is adding something new: blinders. The province is saying it doesn’t believe there will be another virus spike – it has basically declared the pandemic over. But, if there is another wave, it doesn’t want to know about it until the tsunami is already ashore."
"The early warning system is being dismantled. Alberta is also saying that, in future, residents who believe they may have been infected should not get tested, should not share their contacts with contact tracers, and should not stay home to avoid infecting others."
