1/ With the recent attempted soft stance on Nazism being pushed by @Jkenney's @UCPCaucus @YourAlberta w/ @AdrianaLaGrange, does anyone one find this particularly disturbing. Disturbing when you think this is a long game /2
2/ A long game in that you don't indoctrinate grade schoolers to win votes in 2 year's time. This is an attempt to soften fascist trends for decades to come. What govt ever plans out past the next election?!? Clearly this isn't in @Alberta_UCP's best interest /3
3/ And would @jkenney put such a big target on his back, or even try a blatantly wrong ideological move, when it's doubtful he thinks he can win another election? Who would benefit from such a political move? /4
4/ Well, we know @jkenney is good friends with @StephenHarper (our former neo-con prime minister, Albertan economist) and employs his son. @StephenHarper just so happens to be chairperson of the @idualliance. /5
5/ The IDU just so happens to be HQ'ed out of Munich (birthplace of the above mentioned Nazis, who the UCP wants to be soft on, even so far as promoting their history). When look at the IDU's membership ( its a who's who of Neo-con politicos. /6
6/ It was formed in 1983 and tangentially states its primary goal is to help neo-con governments gain power. /7
7/ Now, I don't have the research skills to do the deep dive. But it would be interesting to see where the IDU gets it's money, how it spends it money and whether it is influencing policy in countries where it has influence. /8
8/ It would be interesting to see if all member parties in power are trying to push a soft stance on fascism. Because, while political parties can't typically have a 20 year plan because of democratic election processes...a non-elected neo-con agency like this certainly could

1…I’ve had a choice number of people reach out to me to sincerely ask me to stay in Alberta. I didn’t realize so many of my actual patients followed me on Twitter. Many who know me personally know I’m just an average joe who managed to transition from…2
2…from construction work (and academia) into medicine. I am not stoic. I am not always ‘proper’. To my patients: please realize that was a really really low couple of days for me. But, I did not mean to turn this into an “I’m leaving!” dramatic publicity stunt…3
3…I can’t leave Alberta. For so many reasons. I really feel committed to you (and to many other things as well). But, if WE aren’t going to leave, and WE want to convince others to stay then WE are obligated to each other to make this place worth staying…4

1…Tonight my dog died. Metastatic Cancer. Not the only case of cancer currently brewing in my family. Had to put her down. As I held her and felt her last breath, I realized how hellish my work-life balance had become this last year…2
2…Don’t get me wrong, medicine has always been tough to find work-life balance. Notoriously. But, we had been making inroads as a profession to attain that balance. But, when UCP came along that all halted. Then COVID came along and that was shattered into a million…3
3…into a million pieces.

In that moment, with that last breath, I realized Alberta isn’t worth this. You Albertans want to tolerate this despot @jkenney? I won’t have it any more. I am seriously thinking of bidding Alberta adieu…4

1…In the lead up to WWII, Hitler engaged in a campaign of “re-uniting the Germanic Peoples”, and Lebensraum (“living space”). Despite the rest of the world watching him (esp France, England, USA, Russia), he was able to hostiley annex (though without a single shot fired)…2
2…He was able to annex Austria, and approx 80% of Czechoslovakia’s industry and resources.

A) a slick PR campaign
B) “Divide and conquer” politics
C) unwavering ideology

He gained the power and righteous delusion to take the world to the brink of destruction
3… But this was not enough.

During the Nuremberg investigations & trials it was revealed that many of Hitler’s trusted military generals were staging a coup.

That coup was planned to occur before Hitler took over large sections of Czech lands.

But what prevented the coup?…4

1…Discussed with an immunologist: new variants are appearing with mutations in the human tissue receptor portion of COVID, which is also the portion of the spike protein that the vaccine-induced antibodies (AKA your immune system)…2
2…while this does not increase the infectivity or virulence (disease severity) or the virus, it could lead to significant decrease in vaccine effectiveness…3
3…Further, there is absolutely nothing stopping this from recombining with (or spontaneously occurring in) variants already possessing greater infectivity and virulence…4

1...I think it is official...the "contract" offered the docs by @shandro is not actually a contract. Its an autograph book that Shandy wants to collect COVID-hero signatures in. It is so vague that this contract lawyer of a minister...2
2...has generated a document that can't be legally upheld as a contract by any self-respecting contract court.

@shandro can't even do his original job as a lawyer correctly
As it is not actually a legally binding contract...this makes this document nothing more than a vehicle by which this minister can continue his abusive attack upon doctors. This document is the written equivalent of gaslighting. My gosh...@Shandro you are classic. Never change

1...For those wanting a little context on how @jkenney failed us all because of corruption and TOTAL LACK OF VISION. In April 2020, when the world knew COVID was about to lay us all to ruin, and many were already singing the praises of vaccine development...2
2...@jkenney and the @UCPCaucus @YourAlberta government sunk what was left of our heritage fund into the CEO pockets of O&G companies waiting on the doorstep to leave. Canada had no vaccine production capacity, Alberta was leading the country in unemployment...3
3...and @jkenney wanted “shovels in the ground, now”! Any medical researcher and most doctors could have told you which companies would likely have the best shot at vaccine production (Pfizer, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson&Johnson, Merck, Bauer) those would have been...4
