Another report of 3 guys going into #yxe stores to harass people wearing #covid19sk masks (blocking entrances, trying to start fights). Obvs, staff don't intervene/risk own safety.

Giving in to the "mandate freedom" crowd: what a great idea to "heal divisions," @PremierScottMoe
Just to add to this: we really hope this turns out to be isolated. We know lots of voluntarily unvaccinated folks among our friends/family who would never do this. And we strive to emulate the compassion of HCWs toward folks who are voluntarily unvaccinated. /2
@PremierScottMoe @PremierScottMoe's framing of "social division created by public health measures" is wrong & "concern trolling"—another symptom of do-nothing #covid19sk leadership. Every gov't dept. has large comms budgets & could ease social tensions w/all kinds of public health campaigns./3
@PremierScottMoe But back to these guys. We don't encourage violence. We would like to publicly embarrass them though, so if you can DM pics or video to us if this happens anywhere you're shopping, that would be super. /4

Re: getting hassled for mask-wearing post-Feb 28. Can't stress enough that if it happens, stay as cool as you can. People asking: best self-defense? pepper spray? Our best advice: FILM. Leave yr house w/phone fully charged. Send pics/videos to us, cops if warranted /1 #covid19sk
Our best guess is that if anti-mask ppl are trying to start fights or bothering you about masking, especially after *they* don't have to wear them, they've got someone filming & are prob. trying to collect a heavily edited reel of people "freaking out" while "unprovoked" /2
So again, our advice would be to slip away, get a safe distance, film. (Also: find someone in charge nearby, e.g. a store mgr, to do something if they are willing, if not willing leave the store.) /3

While Moe again declares public health measures basically over in the midst of a COVID wave, we've been approached to promote a weekly action for teachers & others starting Groundhog Day. We support this action & we'll elaborate how & why you should participate. #covid19sk 🧵/1
So Scott Moe—once again—against all medical advice, wants to declare #covid19sk over when it’s surging, & get rid of all measures to protect us, based on the flat-Earth anti-vax view of the world that vaccines do nothing to prevent Omicron infection/transmission. #covid19sk🧵/2
Moe has openly aligned himself with the anti-vax side, all so they don't run off to a new right-wing party—which will not unseat the SaskParty but cause losses in urban ridings to the NDP. That's the reason. #covid19sk 🧵/3

Private surgery in #saskatchewan will transfer public dollars into private pockets. It will add a layer of costs.

Increasing capacity of our public system would be more efficient. #covid19sk #skpoli @drkyle @ShellyRiffel1 🧵/ 1
Setting up private surgery within public health system is likely a step towards full privatization where patients would pay directly for for-profit surgery in contravention of the Canada Health Act. #covid19sk #skpoli @hinz_tamara / 2
This potentially explains Moe's bizarre flirtation with separation / separatists. It's not about a distinct “Western Canadian” or #SK’s “distinct culture,” it's about defying federal jurisdiction in order to advance their privatization agenda.#covid19sk #skpoli @SUNnurses / 3
