What’s that mean? You’ve heard the Con Premiers like Ford and Moe and Kenney are all threatening Trudeau, saying if he doesn’t do impossible things for the oil industry (because it’s rightfully dying), he’s threatening national unity because the Con Premiers will try to break away from Canada to have their own Petrostate?
The whole purpose of the $30 million dollar “war room” is so Kenney can intervene in the federal election on behalf of the federal Conservatives – with taxpayer dollars and no oversight. #ableg
It’s all part of the Conservative Party of Canada’s effort to exceed election spending limits. Kenney in Alberta is throwing $30,000,000 away on an “energy war” room to target environmentalists and other sane people who care about our planet. Basically it’s a way to funnel more money to crackpot media like Rebel, and climate change denial media like POStmedia. Their theory seems to be that if they can spend provincially, as a government, their ads indirectly supporting Scheer will translate into votes for him without running up the finite election spending limit federal parties face.
Chief Electoral Officer Stéphane Perrault cautioned that even if he recommends parliament look at the issue, regulating provinces would be very complex. #cdnpoli
It's basically the crux of the argument around the #carbontax court challenges too. Our Confederation didn't count on having unscrupulous Premiers across the country all owned by Big Oil and launching a coordinated attack on a federal government for the benefit of an oppo party.
The purpose of the War Room is the correct kind of socialism; sending $30M in government money that was earmarked for children's school lunches directly to fringe conspiracy theorists, fake oil sands campaigns, and Andrew Scheer's re-election fund.#ableg
Unrelated, the Bare Naked Ladies song $1000000 mentions John Merrick.
“I’d buy you John Merrick’s remains”
Just read this story today about John Merrick. How strange I was at the Royal London Hospital just last week and discovered the Hospital Museum, where I took the photo attached in the comments: #coincidencehttps://t.co/1DddhikfcJ
The most difficult "The Talk" with kids these days has gone from discussion of puberty and sexuality, to now discussing if they'll have an ecosystem to live in when they grow up.#climatechangehttps://t.co/GT6j7Jldcb
Hi @ThangamMP I just wanted to say that I have no aspiration for my future after my Geography degree because life on Earth is collapsing faster than my dreams of helping fix this. Please can you tell the government this is how many young people feel. https://t.co/HUCUodchFq
