Jody Ledgerwood, moments before stepping outside her vehicle while on the 401. This is part of a convoy organized with the Line Canada, intended to disrupt highway traffic.

It should go without saying that it’s extremely dangerous to block a lane of highway traffic and wander out of one’s car while other vehicles continue to drive by.

An underwhelming demonstration of flags on the 401.

Thanks to @CPEPgroup for its tireless work on behalf of prisoners, and for bringing this issue to my attention.

Was cannabis advocacy Mr. Emery’s calling because of an insatiable desire to be oppressed? If so, at least he found a productive use for a sick impulse.

Post-legalization, he’s spouting anti-vaxx false equivalencies between the Holocaust & public health orders. Sad.
Mr. Emery has been active in a number of political parties, most recently campaigning in 2021 as the PPC candidate for London North Centre.

He finished in fourth place with 5% of the vote. That’s 2,902 people.

Ontario’s public health measures can admittedly be arbitrary &/or frustrating. They do not always reflect the latest science, and occasionally they seem devised to personally benefit @fordnation & his cronies.

That’s bad government, not genocide.**

🧵 My messy Saturday morning update on #antivaxxers:

Two days ago, Samantha DeNuzzo recorded a nearly hour-long livestream in response to the perceived co-optation of “Mama Bear” protests outside the home of @celliottability.

This clip captures an endearing mother-son moment.
The (unnamed) subject of DeNuzzo’s ire is Vlad Sobolev, who referred to the protests as a “dance party.”

Taking a page out of the Chris Sky (Saccoccia) playbook, DeNuzzo rants that nothing is fun or joyous, calling the freedom movement “a fucking joke.”

#cdnpoli #antivaxxers
DeNuzzo talks about needing to smile “because if you don’t, you’re gonna knock somebody the fuck out.” But attendees shouldn’t come with intentions to party. She rhetorically asks “Where is there space to celebrate anything?”

Background Christmas music crescendos right on cue.

Everyone has a role to play in denouncing & combatting racism, but might I humbly suggest that white people stop trying to dictate the game plan by assuming &/or monopolizing positions of leadership.
Personally, I believe the old axiom: the cure to bad speech is better speech.

That’s not to say the marketplace of ideas should be completely unregulated. We know that lies are tastier, easier to swallow, and spread faster than truth— especially in the age of disinformation.
And yet, rigid adherence to the concept of “platforming” plays directly into the hands of bad actors. Short-term victories set the stage for long-term crises.

Censorship validates the far-right narrative of a “war on free speech” while undermining our own civil liberties.

Chris Sky is going cross-country, eighteen stops in sixteen days.

I am the right person to follow him out west to provide @jordanklepper-style reporting at rallies.

Are you willing to fund my coverage of the REAL Chris Sky?
As much as we’d all benefit from Chris Sky fading into oblivion, COVID-denialism is going strong. The spread of backwards, highly individualistic thinking affects us all.

I want to attend Sky’s rallies to engage directly with underlying legal disinformation & white supremacy.
Those who followed my coverage of COVID-denialism from the start know it evolved from taking videos from my office window, to live-streaming, to analyzing common themes.

I’ve captured footage alone & with a cameraman.

I’ve attended with fake security, real security & comrades.

Sky himself was lackadaisical about merchandise sales in #Hanover. He and Jenny lingered after the rally to greet people lining up to shake his hand— for free.
In #Peterborough (Oct ‘21), Sky used garbage bags for storage & display but acquired a tent.

The task of selling merchandise was delegated to volunteers. Meanwhile, Jenny appeared to collect/keep tabs on the money and Sky stood a slight distance away for his meet-and-greet.
Despite poor display & logistics, the Skys managed to do brisk business. Cash only. #Peterborough
