I wwas able to visit the courthouse yesterday to help hold signs. I try to be a good ally, but there’s still a lot of things that I’m a bit ignorant about. Thanks for taking the time to educate me about some of that stuff, @TaylorMadeYYC.
If you’re wondering what the courthouse protest is about;
Dalia Kafi, the woman who was assaulted by on-duty Calgary police officer Const. Alex Dunn in 2017, died in late June, just a few days before Dunn’s sentencing.
"The first debate of Edmonton’s mayoral election was a spirited affair, featuring a current of combativeness, a no-show candidate and plenty of ideas on how to invigorate the city’s beleaguered economy. "
“While Alberta's justice system will see significant cuts. Over the next 4 years, operating expenses will drop nearly $100m.
Alberta Justice will lose 198 positions in the next year, about 1/4 of all public sector jobs being cut.”
@Isuckatpicking Want to know why rates are all going up almost in lockstep?
This will take a couple of tweets to explain.
In short: you’re paying for climate change.
@Isuckatpicking The insurance industry is sort-of pyramid shaped. Small brokers sell insurance from small insurance companies, but small insurance companies need insurance too. So they get insurance from bigger companies to limit their own risk, just in case.
@Isuckatpicking Follow that shape,& in essence, everyone’s insurance ends up being insured by a handful of very large players at the top who may as well only offer insurance to insurance companies.
This is the shape that this industry has evolved into over many decades. It was stable.
