This is an example of police state behaviour, and Ford should be punished.
Glob help us.
Congrats to Jagmeet Singh and his wife.
Oh, and there’s an expected election call for Sept. 20th.
And on the other side of the planet in Afghanistan, echoing the end of the Vietnam War:
The despicable election attack ads the SaskParty Saskatchewan Government ran to help the federal Conservative Party circumvent federal election spending limits, were not legal. Further, the SaskParty is partly funded by oil and gas companies, money that cannot legally be accepted by the Conservative Party as it would be considered a form of criminal corruption. In their effort to exploit a loophole to send that money to other SaskParty donors like Rawlco Radio, to buy attack ads, the SaskParty screwed up and broke the law. Their response was to say it was really hard to figure out the 3rd party election ad spending rules.
It took almost 2 days following the attack on the US Capital by GOP terrorists, but Twitter banned the ring leader Trump from their platform, after first only giving a 12 hour suspension.
Pelosi doesn’t have the gumption.
She’s been bluster only, for years.
Could the problem be that the majority of Sask voters put their trust into a man who has shown reckless disregard for life on multiple occasions finally resulting in a tragic death?
Trump’s lies about wind power, and solar, and natural gas are over the top.
In a debate where the candidate had to point out that people need to be able to breathe to be successful, there isn’t much hope for America when the pro-suffocation candidate still has a shot.
In Trump’s opinion, the country was on top of the world in January. And the plague is the only thing that went wrong, and he says it was China’s fault. Even though Trump praised Xi for handling the virus early in the year.
AOC, Fauci, Bernie Sanders, all will likely have strong responses to the litany of Trump’s lies tonight, having all been named by the Republican candidate. Lincoln would have wanted his turn at the poor pitiful Trump pinata too.
The news around the world has been more awful than usual, with the President of the USA purportedly getting over his COVID-19 infection, while on dexamethasone (a powerful, potentially mind altering steroid) threatening to kiss guys in the crowd of his maskless rally.
The UK is announcing plans, and at the same time saying they won’t work.
And here in Saskatchewan there’s an election underway, both for the provincial and municipal governments. I have some hope that Regina might elect a few new Councillors, but there’s a religious homophobe running who shamed the Public School Board recently, and no clear, strong alternative to the present right wing mayor. Jim Elliott is running, and would make a good mayor for the years ahead, but Regina’s voters are largely too out of touch with our planetary ecological breakdown to realize that.
But the provincial election is a corrupt dumpster fire. The media continues their effort to shut out the Greens and any other party. And no wonder. Look who pays them:
Big media outside of Saskatchewan is required to get great coverage of what’s going wrong here.
After a SaskParty candidate was revealed to be an anti-science Q-cult fascist, so Moe removed him to reduce embarrassment to the party. The replacement is a home builder association CEO.
“The rising cost of housing is more important than solving climate change for most canadians (sic).”
Saskatchewan is a world leader in air pollution per capita, and we don’t need yet another MLA who doesn’t want to do a darn thing. She actually resists changes that could help, if they aren’t driven by “the market”.
“Mandating energy efficiency at accelerated rates will only setback innovation while making housing more expensive. I see the word “mandate” far too often in this report.”
Doesn’t seem like she’s yet a total Sask Party drone though. She has even praised Trudeau in the past.
And has spoken up about anti-women Conservatives too:
The Green Party of Sask is running Jan Norris, and the NDP is running Matt Love.
