Mega 🧵Part 5: This thread serves as a reminder of some of the opportunistic ideologues that aligned themselves under the UCP banner & their disastrous, often embarrassing actions over the past 4 years. Many of these dud MLAs are seeking re-election. #Ableg #Abpoli 1/x Image
This is Devin “Shields Up” Dreeshen. This spoiled privileged brat treated the Legislature like a frat party ultimately resigning his cabinet post after allegations of harassment & drunken binges. Reinstated by Smith as she though he was ministerial material. #Ableg #Abpoli ImageImage
BTW did he get away with travelling during Covid restrictions? Did the Kenney and the UCP cover for him while others took the fall? Doesn't look like St. Barts to me at all. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
Then there's Prasad Panda. Panda was the front man for the ideological pushing of P3s, which everyone told the UCP was an expensive and inefficient way to run large construction projects. The UCP backtracked and eventually agreed, halting their support of P3s. #Ableg #Abpoli ImageImage
Here is UCP MLA Grant Hunter having a family outing at the illegal blockake at Coutts. There were zero consequences for him for this action. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
This is "insert candidate name" Dan Williams, Kenney’s handpicked parachuted candidate from back east. Mr. Williams is staunchly pro-life & is best known for his failed Conscience Rights bill. With a TBA backed UCP, bodily autonomy is definitely on the ballot. #Ableg #Abpoli ImageImage
This is Demetrios Nicolaides, the UCP’s psudo intellectual, disaster of a minister, & embarrassment to academia. Nicolaides carried out a war on Higher Education raising tuitions, cutting funding, & he was also one of the front men for the deifying of trades. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
Then there's Adrianna LaGrange, who wouldn’t know a balanced, quality, non-ideological, non-racist school curriculum if it hit her over the head. A vote for the UCP is a vote for the disastrous school curriculum that over 90% of school boards wouldn’t even pilot. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
Then there's Dale Nally who accused doctors of lying during the UCP's war on doctors. Let's just say Mr. Nally is not very good with numbers. #Ableg #Abpoli ImageImage
Then their's Davinder Toor, who seemingly can't stop having problems with the law. #Ableg #Abpoli ImageImage
Then there's Kaycee Madu. What can you say? Twice fired from cabinet posts for incompetence then found to have used his influence to get out of a parking ticket. Smith looked at his record and made him Deputy Minister. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
Then there's Jason Luan, the architect of the war on harm reduction. Stood by Sean Chu after all of the disclosures regarding the case. #Ableg #Abpoli #YYC Image
Then there's Jason Nixon, who fired a woman before Christmas as she made a sexual harassment complaint. The UCP reviewed the case and said, "yeah, we're good with that". #Ableg #Abpoli Image
Then there's Jeremy Nixon, who posted that you should "Stay Home and Save Lives" but decided, like a number of other entitled UCP MLAs including Fir, Stephen, and Rehn, that that didin't apply to him as he'd rather go to Hawaii instead. #Ableg #Abpoli ImageImage
Then their's Nathan Cooper, a self-described legislative policy wonk who as Speaker appeared to have forgotten the principal of independance that comes with that honour and politicized his role as speaker through his decisions and actions. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
Then there's Peter Singh, Nate Horner, Nicolas Milliken, Josaphine Pon, etc. that I defy you to identify a single accomplishment that they have made during their time in office. All to say, that these people do not deserve to be re-elected. Choose wisely Alberta. #Ableg #Abpoli

And now the 🧵 of 🧵s (Mega 🧵Parts 1-5). If you can make it through all of these threads and still vote UCP, I don't know what to say. Go out and vote like the future of Alberta is dependent on it because indeed it is. #Ableg #Abpoli #VoteNDP #FiretheUCP

Mega 🧵Part 4: This thread serves as a reminder of just some of the reasons as to why racialized Albertans should consider not voting for the UCP this election. #Ableg #Abpoli 1/x Image
Remember when during the height of Covid Kenney went on radio to blame the South Asian Community in Calgary for spreading Covid? #YYC #Ableg #Abpoli…
Remember the lack of supports after the devastating hail storm in Calgary in 2020 and how systematic racism was blamed for these lack of supports? #YYC #Ableg #Abpoli…

Mega 🧵Part 3: This thread serves as a reminder of some of the flubs, missteps, & gaffs that characterized the “Rehn of Error” of the last 4 years under UCP rule. Many of these same duds are still around & running again under the UCP banner. #Ableg #Abpoli 1/x Image
Remember during the height of the pandemic with health restrictions in place that a number of entitled UCP MLAs ignored those restrictions and travelled anyway while you dutifully missed your holiday with loved ones? #Ableg #Abpoli ImageImage
Remember designated apologizer Rick McIver begging for forgiveness and saying that it is up to the people of Alberta to judge? Well, people of Alberta, now is the time. Fir, Stephen, & Jeremy Nixon are all running again. Time for them and the UCP to be judged. #Ableg #Abpoli

Mega Thread Part 2: The quality of candidates that the UCP attract has always been suspect. Here is a trip down memory lane of some of the more heinous UCP candidates including racists, Nazis, and bigots (of various forms). #Ableg #Abpoli
Meet Myles Mcdougall. Myles stated that Black People Don’t Want Education And Live in “Ghetto Culture”. Myles is the current candidate for Calgary-Fish Creek. #Ableg #Abpoli #YYC… Image
Meet Mark Mantei. Mark claimed that Muslims are the only group that engages in extremism and violence.… Image

Mega 🧵 Part 1: The UCP have been in power the past 4 years. A reminder of the disaster that has been the past 4 years. 1st & foremost, their handling of Covid, the worst-rated response in the country, should be immediately disqualifying. #Ableg #Abpoli 1/x Image
Indeed, the worst-rated Covid response in the country. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
Remember when the UCP lied about rescinding the coal policy and only backtracked after a massive groundswell of opposition? Those coal projects are still on the books. #Ableg #Abpoli Image
