Born & Raised Albertan Who Will Fight For Anyone & Everyone Who The Alberta UCP Government Refuses To Listen To. Someone Who’s A Thorn In The UCP’s Behind! #YYC
14 Jan
I have an emergency that I would like my Twitter Family's #Help with.

I am worried about my friend Jenn and her co workers that run @HarvestHillsYYC.

They have run themselves ragged and need help.

(1)
There's a reason why Jenn and the team have not posted or shared a lot lately on their social media accounts.

She is probably going to kill me for doing this (RIP @Hell_Berta)......but I need to do something for them. I can't sit back and watch them burn themselves out.
As everyone knows, Jenn was in a car accident in Dec. and she was hurt pretty bad. I am talking grade 3 concussion bad and really really bad whiplash and other injuries.

She is at home recovering and her fellow board members and dedicated volunteers have picked up and helped.

If you can help @HarvestHillsYYC Please do. They're unfairly being targeted by UCP Conservative Party Trolls & are being harassed by people who are going after their organization.
They've even gone as far as demanding Jenn retract any & all statements she made in regards to being critical of the current Alberta Government.

We are indeed dealing with a cruel & heartless government.
These EVERYDAY heroes, are the very people that are stepping up & filling the GAP that our government is refusing to fill.

The @Alberta_UCP can't see the damage that is being done to the province that I & others love so much. From Doctors to Parks, Everything is being attacked.

This is Cara's Story. **Names have been changed upon request and for protection**

Cara has gone through a lot as a child. Growing up she had difficulties in coping with traumatic experiences that she and her other family members both lived with and went through.
Ever since she was on AISH, Cara and others we have talked to all recognized that all the AISH workers that our daughter and others have had to work with have always reinforced to their clients the lifelong message that many clients were unworthy of support, care & medical care.
Cara and her sister grew up in a home that had a mother with serious mental health diagnoses as well as an alcoholic father who left when Cara was 9 and her sister was 6.

*Husband after a night out drinking with friends. He caught an @Uber home*

Hubby: (wakes me up when he comes into the room wanting to give me a kiss before he goes to his side of the bed, only to step on the cats tail which sets a whole shitshow into motion)
Manages to go to his side of the bed and lays down only to giggle like a school kid passing gas in class for absolutely no reason.

When asked why he was giggling he looked at me and said I farted and it was silent but it’s deadly cause I ate an onion and bean dip at Rogers.
He then continued to giggle for a solid ten minutes.

Once he settled down he got undressed and comfortable and then promptly fell asleep.

You’d think it stops there but ooooooo no. It gets worse.

This is what happened when I got home tonight. I cried. I cried at work yesterday. I also cried 3 different times last night after getting home from work.
I am an Office Administrator at an elementary school and this is how my day has gone. I'm crying because the work and expectations that have been put upon us with the added ridiculous time frames are overwhelming.
I'm crying because I am having to answer the phone and hear the concerns and frustrations of parents who are upset at the policies put in place to protect their children while they are at school.

Yes I am still feeling sick. Yes I am still in iso. My hubby was kind enough to let me sit in his truck while he worked on it in the driveway! He said that way he can keep an eye on me and stop me from anymore online shopping!

When someone DM’s you but doesn’t make any sense, yet gets angry at you for not helping them, so you help them by giving them people and organizations to contact....only to be blocked after for not helping them the way they wanted to be helped....what do you do?
It’s all just odd....
I gave them the contact information for what I think they were asking for help with. They didn’t like it when I said: “I’m sorry but this isn’t making much sense. I don’t know what you are asking me for help with and if you can be more specific that would be great”

Things like this make me mad 😡. @HarvestHillsYYC is a grass roots organization that only has at the moment a staff of twenty volunteers that also have lives and families of their own

But when someone makes a request and demands to be put to the top of the list ahead of others..
...and when they are politely told that it was not possible because there were other requests ahead of them...they accused The Harvest Hills Cares Calgary Team of not wanting to help!

They even threatened to go ahead and tell everyone about the “experience” they had.
Jenn had her volunteer call her in tears because that volunteer was threatened as well when all they did was respond in an appropriate manner.

I have included proof of these messages with all identifying information removed.

I’m scared. I’m afraid. I’m concerned. I and my family are now in isolation. My daughters school has an outbreak and she woke up with symptoms yesterday. I kept her home and immediately called #AbHealth to book tests for us all.
But I’m scared. Scared for my children, scared for my husband. Scared and afraid. I’m told that since it’s just my daughter that’s exhibiting symptoms..the rest of my family can still go on with our normal lives. We can still go out into the community and still go out in public.
That makes me angry! 😡 I am doing what’s right for my family! I am keeping everyone at home and I am keeping everyone isolated for the requisite 14 days! Why? Because I not only want to protect my family. I want to protect you and yours!

Hey @RajanJSaw, care to explain this:

Credit: Kathleen Ganley

“The UCP is planning to change the eligibility criteria for AISH. The issues manager for the Premier tweeted that Albertans with mental or psychological disabilities aren’t “really” disabled.
... I truly believed that as a society we were past the point where we have to hide mental health problems, or listen to people people say they aren’t “real” health issues. The UCP taking us back in time again.”

I just got DM’d by one of the families who were recipients of a “Gift Card” from @RajanJSaw office. They were given $100.00 in gift cards and that barely covered diapers and formula and left nothing over for food. Plus they had to then find a way to the grocery store.
And by the way if you are on Alberta Works and or AISH...you have to report to your worker that you received such a gift. And that could affect your monthly cheque.
That’s why HHCC does what they do. They tailor it to the family. They do the shopping so the families and or single parents don’t have to take everyone to the store for shopping. Especially in this #COVID19AB climate. After shopping, HHCC delivers the food hamper to the families.

Good News: The Young Mom is safe and sound.

Even Better News: The powered wheelchair is being delivered NEXT WEEK to the young woman who is a double amputee and has been waiting for a chair from the @YourAlberta & @RajanJSaw office... for an extremely long time.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who have made all this happen. To the @HarvestHillsYYC team of volunteers, @GrannyGTArp and @EveryAlbertan and also @paul_yyc as well! Without all these awesome people...doing what they do...all of this may not have happened! 😊 So thank you!
On another note, I don’t like begging 🥺 but in this case I am. If you can help...please do as all the team @HarvestHillsYYC is looking for is $475.00.

This is for two medium families. If you can donate I am sure ANY AMOUNT is and would be welcome.

Twitter Emergency Good & Bad News (Long Thread)

OK, I have Good News & Bad News

Bad News: The Alberta Government has Fucked up again and has further tried to ruin the life of a disabled individual

Good News: There is a way to fix the wrong that has been done to this person
I have to admit that late this evening I sat down and cried at all the atrocities that the Alberta Government has done to Albertans all over the province.

I also have to admit that every story that I hear, my heart breaks just a little bit more for the people that have no voice

Thread:

If any parent wants to home school their children but also has to work ETC, There is a group of parents in YYC who are willing and wanting to help other parents in YYC.
Ex: if you want to homeschool your child, but dont have the time, this group of parents will work out an “education schedule” in which your child would still be able to complete the necessary school work while still being able to socialize safely with other kids in the group.
If childcare is an issue this group of parents are willing to work out a childcare schedule as well.

If you would like to know more, please feel free to DM me and I will connect you to a group that is helping coordinate everything.

From the school board this morning:

For the 2020-21 school year, the CBE will require all staff and students (kindergarten to Grade 12) to wear a mask at school. This includes classrooms and public spaces such as hallways, learning commons, bathrooms, etc.
Masks are also required for staff and students travelling on Calgary Transit or a yellow school bus.

We are working on mask guidelines including support for students and staff who are unable to wear a mask due to medical conditions or other needs.
When staff and students take breaks from wearing a mask, it will be important for other measures to be adhered to like physical distancing, hand hygiene, and sanitizing surfaces.

Oh, I’m sorry,
Are you offended
By my unicorn fist?
Well, after a year of this government,
I’m feeling
Mighty pissed.

UCP policies tell
Albertans to
Suck it.
Education, health care,
Human rights?
Ya, they’ve fucked it.
These career politicians
Without any
Degrees,
Spend their days
Gaslighting
However they please.

And while we struggle
Our way through a
Global pandemic,
They’re spreading
Ideology like a
Swift epidemic.
And maybe all of this
Was part of their
Plan,
Keep the woman at home,
Reliant on her
“Man”.

But this Mom
Won’t go down without
A fight.
You start messing with kids?
Watch out for
My bite.

@ENMAX I am very disappointed in you. To think you say you are here to help only to direct the people that come to you for help to your community partners...
...community partners mind you that are already swamped with requests for assistance and such only to be told “sorry we can’t help you, have you tried looking for work or asking your friends or family for a short term loan to pay your past due balance?”
“We understand this may be a difficult time for you but if you reach out to one of our community partners (insert link here 😬) you should be able to get or find the help you need.”

So Someone just called Jenn from @HarvestHillsYYC and berated her for not revealing who I am. They are a organization that wants to help not hurt the people living in Alberta.

First: I do what I do because I want to help
Second: I am going back and forth on whether or not to reveal myself because I do not want my children or other family members who are in the public to be targeted or harassed. Especially the ones who are already in the public eye.
Third: I am in no way affiliated with HHCC but I choose to help multiple non profits because that is the right thing to do during this time.
