Great thread.

#cdnmedia also contributed to polarizing our society & also needs attention. Eg, the obsession with Clinton's emails led to the rise of Trump. Similarly, wrongful WE coverage led to the dissolution of a valuable Charity. Ironically, NDP & CPC did its part. #cdnpoli The excellent article in Stephen Maher's thread

PP is acting like a frat boy trying to gain entrance to an elite fraternity he's not sufficiently qualified to join, especially given he has no clear platform, policies, or a vision for the future of Canada other than to fire his intellectual superior at the BOC!

1) This is on Conservative Premiers who, from the start, gave succor to anti-masking protesters & other lawbreakers.

What infuriates me is the arrogance of some #antivaxxers in the #OttawaOccupation claiming they are fighting for my freedoms too. They haven't lost freedom. They lost privileges b/c they CHOSE to be unvaccinated while THOUSANDS of vaccinated lost the right to needed surgeries. #antivaxxers have not lost Freedom - choices have consequences.

Privileges are not Rights. They're privileges.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Singh has long spoken about the misinformation of the LIBS when he was asked abt Freeland's O'Toole video.

OMG. I can't believe what I am hearing from a pathological liar.
#cdnpoli Singh claims PMJT has done absolutely nothing to save lives.

Unfreaking real. PMJT has had Canadians' back throughout the entire pandemic.

The man is obsessed with PMJT & how bad he is.

1) Singh falsely claims "Because of our work ... because of the pressure we built, the government designated the Proud Boys and a few other alt-right groups as terrorist organizations...."

#cdnpoli 2) The Gov of 🇨🇦 didn't jump to Mr Singh's "pressure", despite the HOC's unanimous support of his motion to ban the Proud Boys. Canada does a statutory review of terror groups every two yrs & added to their list in 2019.

1) Conservative Premiers & #cdnmedia are blaming PMJT for vaccine delays & want to see Pharma contracts.

Some are accusing PMJT for taking vaccines from poor countries (COVAX) which is not true.

Opposition is desperate to lay a faux scandal at PMJT's feet yet the CONs could have stopped this long ago.

"It isn't clear whether the Mounties or the Crown knew before laying the breach-of-trust charge that Norman had clear marching orders from the Harper government."
#cdnpoli There's no evidence Liberals interfered in Mark Norman Prosecution

"Suspicions are not allegations. Innuendo is not evidence."

1) CPC desparate to pin this on PMJT, but blame is on the Harper Gov.

If political interferernce had occured, that direction must be published in the Canada Gazette. Didn't happen!

Remind you of something? JWR was not directed to interfere with the DPP either.
#cdnpoli 2) The Crown's case against VA Mark Norman began collapsing in March b/c of released info from former Conservative cabinet ministers/staffers.

The prosecution said Norman's actions were "inappropriate and secretive" but not criminal!

According to Conservatives in 2015, PMJT was "not ready"! Today they say he is "not as advertised"?

Let's take a walk down memory lane. Harper’s past actions are useful in showing how modern Conservatism descended into Tribalism, Identity Politics, Dog Whistles, & Fear Mongering 2) Charter WAR driven by Conservative Ideology and Stephen Harper

1) As an ex-Albertan of 58 yrs and as a Canadian first, I am sick to death of the entitled privileged whining of journalists, Albertans, pundits & the rest of #cdnmedia from the richest province in Canada.

#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli 2) Playing politics through the courts as Harper did with his unconstitutional laws cost Canadians millions of dollars.

Harper, like Kenney, are so blinded by their ideology & privilege, they forget that Canadians have a Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Fantastic thread: the article on #SNC & Jody Wilson Raybould was apparently translated from a French a La Presse article written by L. Gagnon.

Would appreciate anyone who speaks french to forward me the French article.

1/ #cdnmedia you've just been massively shamed!! #cdnpoli "After all these testimonies, including those particularly informative, Gerald Butts and the Deputy Minister of Justice, Nathalie Drouin, we understand a little better what happened in the pseudo-scandal that disrupts the politico-media class from English Canada.
