Ethics committee all ready to begin. They will decide today on requests from the Conservatives and NDP to study SNC-Lavalin

πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ JFC. 42% is a passing math grade in Alberta. Possibly worse, Alberta’s shadow minister of finance thinks 100 - 42 = 68. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Screw the pipeline, we need someone that can do math deployed to Alberta immediately.

I could swear I read this in one of your reports...

I agree. Canada needs to help ppl w/ rare diseases get life saving drugs. Let's start with patients who are carrying a huge disease burden, and suffer a lower quality of life than people with MS and HIV. Let's fund biomed research into biomarker and treatments.

Mr. Panda: Okay. Thank you. Mr. Chair, I’ll share my time with Mr. Gotfried.

The Chair: You have seven seconds.

Mr. Gotfried: Have a great morning.

The Chair: Thank you, Mr. Gotfried, for that.


If you Canadians are going to learn anything from our president, it should be that a constant barrage of controversy in the news is actually a bad thing in the long term. I know the UCP looks like it’s getting pummeled by crises right now, but what’s going to happen in the long run is that Alberta media will be so oversaturated by this or that UCP candidate being outted as a far-right extremist every other day that people will…. Just stop caring. If Canadian media keeps bombarding viewers with Islamophobia, white nationalism and conspiracy theories, then should the UCP gain power, their actual policies with regards to things like destroying the ecosystem, increasing Alberta’s dependence on oil, etc will look less radical and noteworthy by comparison.

The thing with the UCP and all of the candidates that it’s shedding is…in this day and age, how difficult must it be to find Conservative candidates who *don’t* have a recent history of saying hideously hateful things on social media? Like, there can’t be many.

This image of a poll is from one of the less blatantly conservative radio stations in Calgary. It’s not a perfect or formal poll, and I won’t count any chickens before they hatch, but this is a downright sunny outlook for the NDP.

Don’t fall for the UCP propaganda; Calgarians know when they’re being swindled. This shit the UCP is pulling is why we voted the Cons out last time and we will keep. Them. Out. The parties are out there showing their true colors. Don’t let them pull the wool over your or anyone else’s eyes.

We won before, we can win again.

Ms Kazim: I will pass my time to my colleague MLA Jessica Littlewood.

The Chair: I would say that you have six seconds.

Ms Littlewood: Do you have a number of how much capital was . . .

The Chair: A valiant attempt, I will say. A valiant attempt.

Mr. Gotfried: So without having to add barista courses on the side, what are you doing specifically in the ministry to ensure that students have jobs when they graduate? What are we doing, actually, in working with the postsecondary institutions? I know many of them have placement programs for internships and other things, but also for final job placement: what specifically in terms of resources are being directed towards that measure, again, so we don’t have to train them on the side to be baristas and do other jobs, which are completely irrelevant to the degrees that they’re coming forth with?
List of Canadian News/Politics/Social Justice twitter accounts to follow

This is the first version of this twitter list I’ve been curating after hearing from my followers that its hard for them to find Canadian News or Commentary online. Please share this so more people have access to Canadian News on twitter.

The document is split into several sections: Politicians, NDP/Left/Labour, General, News, Indigenous, Anti-Racism, etc

This is not intended to be a document containing every twitter account related to cdnpoli. These are just the accounts I follow and recommend for keeping up to date.

This document is updated as of March 24th, 2019 and contains 108 accounts. 

I will be making updates to this document regularly and re-sharing it.

Dr. Turner: I do want to make some comments on the interchange between the Minister of Indigenous Relations and the member representing Lac La Biche-Two Hills-Cold Lake, if I have that in the correct order.

Mr. Kleinsteuber: Lac La Biche-St. Paul-Two Hills.

Dr. Turner: I’ll get Hansard corrected later.


Alberta NDP: Jason Kenney’s Real Record

This short documentary is difficult to watch. But it’s also important. 

Jason Kenney has spent three decades fighting against people’s rights. He hasn’t apologized for any of this. 

He hasn’t acknowledged the damage he’s done to people who just want the freedom to love and live their lives and have the same opportunities as anyone else. 

In this video, we spoke with some of the people who have seen firsthand the consequences of not having equal rights and the discrimination caused by the campaign that Jason Kenney helped lead.

Is this a Premier?

Jenny Kwan in Question Period - “There is no Planet B!!”

On March 20, 2019, I rose in Question Period to ask if the Liberal government will listen to the voices of young people, who know that there is no Planet B, and admit that Harper’s C02 emissions targets and buying oil pipelines won’t cut it for climate action.

Mr. Hunter: Lesson 2. Empower individuals to create their own prosperity through the vehicle of liberty and freedom. This path was best documented during the Reagan and Thatcher eras. It featured lower blahal tax rates, deregulation, and restrained government spending. These policies have created more wealth and prosperity than any other vehicle in modern history, full stop.

The Speaker: The hon. Member for Calgary-Hawkwood.

Connolly: Well, thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. However, I believe it’s the Member for Calgary-Mountain View first.

The Speaker: Hon. member, my apologies. This is the second day in a row that I’ve done that. There must be other things that are distracting me.

Dr. Swann: I forgive you. I forgive you, Mr. Speaker.
