And Conservatives across Canada went batshit.
Le système de santé public et universel du Canada est l’une de nos plus grandes forces. L’an dernier, en pleine pandémie, Erin O’Toole s’est fait demander s’il envisagerait la privatisation du système de santé. Il a répondu oui sans hésiter! pic.twitter.com/dcCwfaguLr— Chrystia Freeland (@cafreeland) August 22, 2021
Then @gill_godwin sniffed out some relationships - between the public relations professional who was originally outraged that Freeland had chopped up her O'Toole "interview" where he made the truncated remarks about Canadian healthcare, and her friendship with Twitter's public policy manager who used to be a parliamentary assistant to Harper. So maybe this helps to explain why Twitter was ON IT!!!
It it me, or did twitter just start giving a shit about edited clips just because of Chrystia Freeland?— Arthur Atkinson 🇨🇦 🏳️🌈 (@ArthurAtkinson0) August 23, 2021
We all know that @Jack's virtue is like. He let trump and his merry band of nazis roam free for years.
Ms. Harrison has an acquaintance in Conservative circles.— G Godwin (@gill_godwin) August 24, 2021
This would be Michelle Austin who is currently Head of Public Policy for Twitter in Canada.
This connection can't be ignored if we are to have a fair election. pic.twitter.com/9Mgca4UTrp
Dean makes an interesting point about the larger issues here:
So this begs the question, if the complainer has an acquaintance who is Head of Twitter Policy in Canada, was there an inside track to flagging @cafreeland for a tweet ?— G Godwin (@gill_godwin) August 24, 2021
I think Canada deserves answers on this. ASAP#cdnpoli #cdnmedia
Trudeau has Freeland's back:
If there was a misstatement in Chrystia Freeland’s tweet it’s this:— Dean from Winnipeg (@Dean_Winnipeg) August 24, 2021
The tweet claimed O’Toole wanted to privatize the system, when what he said was he would allow privatization within the system, which is different, but eventually the same. #cdnpoli
Sounds good to me:
Did the #Liberals roll the dice and come up snake eyes? This #Election2021 'win a majority' may be a gamble they lose. My prediction at this point: Liberals with reduced seat minority, #NDP up a couple seats, #CPC steady where they were before.— Ed the Sock (@EdtheSock) August 23, 2021
Kicking out military members who refuse to get the COVID19 vaccine would probably also eliminate the vast majority of the Proud Boys, white supremacists, and Neo-Nazis who have infested the military. So, a win-win!— Sgt Joker (@TheSGTJoker) August 23, 2021
