Let's start with the inaccurate assumption that Jason Kenney and the UCP government are making rational decisions - evidence suggests otherwise. Here's a list and please feel free to add your own. #ableg #cdnpoli
A thread with great insight , and at the end, sage advice. Do not become 'Merica2.0 Alberta
Andrew Scheer has been clear about his support for equality, but many on the left say they refuse to believe him. Why? Because their efforts to peddle suspicion and uncertainty are based on false presumptions about his Catholic faith. #cdnpoli should not go down this road.
In which Mr. Genius attempts to make a martyr out of his leader because of his faith rather than admitting that Scheer is not competent, lies, and is not trustworthy in the least. He lost,stop making excuses for him. #smokescreen
Ever wonder why Stockwell Day has an honourary degree from St. Petersburg State University, Russia? Or why Stephen Harper's close friend Charles McVety had the same degree conferred upon him? Or Harper backing out of Kyoto? Or what Jason Kenney was *actually*doing?
Replying to @PGDorothy: very interesting read. I knew the CPC was going much farther right than they were before Reform, but had no idea the church…
Kudos to 🇨🇦 Canada Pension Plan Investment Board for divesting its passive, though small, investment in two for-profit American refugee concentration camp orgs (CoreCivic/Geo Group), in part, due to its Int'l reputational risk assessment. Well done! Reported in Toronto Star😊
This is meaningful.
Investigation by Information Commissioner of Canada Suzanne Legault began in 2013 due to a complaint by University of Victoria's Environmental Law Clinic have been released and proved that Harper conservative government did muzzle scientists. SHAME
During last night’s Premier’s live feed, parents & teachers raising concerns about UCP education policy changes and cuts were censored, comments blocked and deleted by moderators. We need to be paying attention to this, they are literally trying to erase Albertan voices. #ableg
This is how fascism works. Wow. The entire world is in turmoil, but you’ll have to excuse me while I focus on what’s going on right here at home. I said what I said. #Cdnpoli
This is a very long and terrifying read
Would love to see a current in-depth report exposing the ties tween CPC UPC with the Evangelical wing nut SoCon movement and how it continues to influence and inform Conservative policy
and further expose #cdnmedia role in ignoring it
As an Alberta doctor I am disgusted that this is being proposed in our province
#Bill207 puts health care worker's belief systems above patient rights and will serve to reduce access for those most vulnerable in our province: women, LGBTQ, end of life, rural/remote
Sigh. There’s quite a few men who need to be muzzled from any platforms. They’re sowing hate, discord, division. Don Cherry, Preston Manning, Kevin O’Leary, Jason Kenney, Doug Ford, Warren Kinsella, Hamish Marshall..we see you and we are not amused. Go away.
My family settled Alberta. My great-great uncle was Sir Fred Haultain, the last premier of the Northwest Territory. My great grandfather was the post surgeon at Fort MacLeod, and treated Sitting Bull.
I know Alberta.
@JKenney doesn’t represent Alberta.
@reicurran The fundamental problem is that Canadians do not want religion in government. Period.
That's not being 'anti-Catholic.'
Remember when pundits were patting us on the head when we stated we were concerned about Kenney/abortion?
Where are we now on that?
Imagine if Trudeau or Scheer had constantly made fun of Singh's religion to hurt him politically—Demanding to know if he believed in reincarnation, if he REALLY thought God cares about haircuts etc. Would this be any different than hounding Scheer about what he thinks is "a sin?"
Get off your high horse. Religion only matters when it becomes part of government & is shoved down citizen's throats, which Scheer wants to do.That's the reason he gets asked. Use your head for something besides a hat rack. @EdtheSock @Scribulatora @Learning2GetBy @RagingLibNana
