They also get a shout out from “Alberta Proud” in this article.
Alberta Proud being the “advocacy group” whose website was originally registered by the founder of Canada Action?
Whose lawyer for a good chunk of time was Tyler Shandro?

One of the big proponents of “replacement theory” is Tucker Carlson.
The same guy who constantly misrepresents Critical Race Theory on FOX.
The same CRT that Kenney invoked as something he was fighting against during his leadership review speech.
While Canada doesn’t have quite the same ammosexual relationship with firearms as the US, it would be profoundly naïve to not recognize the Americanization of conservative politics in Canada.

Looks like it might be time for another chat about The Dorchester Review…
You know, the “magazine” run by the same guy who by some accounts wrote Jason Kenney’s Social studies curriculum?
The Dorchester Review has decided to again double down on “not all First Nations kids who went to residential schools were forced”.
Which is true, but like saying “Not everyone who ever stayed in a concentration camp at any point in history died”.
Meeting is starting with Cynthia Moore explaining the rules and opening ceremonies, explaining the agenda. Moore is making it clear that no other motions or resolutions are allowed.
Kenney starts by recognizing he’s on treaty 7 land in the briefest land acknowledgment ever and quickly pivots to a feel good story about a FN veteran, then pivoting to the “Notley/Trudeau alliance”

Bought a ticket last night, but in a fascinating coincidence, the UCP claim they closed their registration for observers at almost the exact minute that the crowdfunding was successful.
That’s cool though. We’ve already heard from a few of the protestors who will be attending the AGM outside, and if the UCP won’t take $999 to let us inside, we’re totes happy to do the outside and chat with folks.
So if nothing else, at least they’re consistent on this?

So the province announced $8 million for EMS…
What does that boil down to?
Actually, not very much.
The province says they’re creating 100 FTE positions.
As always, the devil is in the details.
They’re taking 30 temp positions already in the work force and extending them.
But what about the other 70?

So why is there so much focus on the Calgary Stampede and making sure it goes ahead...
@jkenney has made a really big deal about making sure that The Calgary Stampede is a thing this year.
We recently saw the bizarre introduction of Rodeo (which is actually a wide variety of sports) being declared the official sport of Alberta.
So why all of the attention?
There’s a lot of possible reasons...

From the DM’s...
As an update to our thread yesterday on inconsistent vaccine administration, here’s what we’ve learned.
To start with, the criteria for who gets shots and when seems to vary wildly from location to location.
We have heard multiple reasons why “expired” vaccine is being available. Missed appointments, extra doses out of vials, vaccine becoming expired because of time out of refrigeration just being a few.
But there is excess vaccine available.

From the DM’s...
Apparently there are #yyc Shoppers Locations that are giving out vaccines regardless of age or medical condition as many that they were shipped are about to expire.
Hey real journalists, you should probably tag in here...
Worth noting, we tried calling one of the locations, but were unable to get through as their phone lines are completely jammed...

There are some really great Twitter accounts in #abpoli.
We are grateful for the amount of content that others produce, for the friends we have made on our little journey here.
Yesterday we posted about an odd little Facebook post...
That post has resulted in some fascinating reactions, the largest being denial that it’s real.
It’s been implied we were duped, it’s been implied we faked it ourselves.
But the post, and what you see in not only our videos and others is real.
