I absolutely don't get it.— Dale Thompson (@daleethompson) June 1, 2022
Ontario is again poised to elect a high school dropout drug-dealer who then grifted off his dad's company, ripped off his brother's widow & is hell-bent on tearing down education, healthcare & the environment.
Just who the f*ck is voting for Ford??
Then again, here in Saskatchewan we have elected Conservative-type governments for the last 15 years - 15 YEARS! - and I don't understand that either.
The Ontario election has been a hopeless exercise in watching democratic decline and failure in real-time.— David Moscrop (@David_Moscrop) June 2, 2022
I have no hopeful addition or call to action here. It’s just shit. https://t.co/SXcsA504Ta
Stay calm, Ontario.— Thomas Yanuziello (@TYanuziello) June 1, 2022
The polls are based on 2018 results, which was a backlash against Wynne.
Those same electors are now going to vote against Ford.
Record high voter turnout tells us that he is toast.
Take a deep breath and just relax today.
Morneau wants to put (some?) policy matters beyond politics. By creating a permanent body to guide the future of the economy, with input from multiple parties.— David Reevely (@davidreevely) June 2, 2022
We HAVE that, my guy. It’s called Parliament.
I have a feeling that this growth commission Bill Morneau imagines would propose things that Bill Morneau thinks are good ideas. The idea being to advance those ideas without being nibbled to death by, say, Pierre Poilievre. One can understand the appeal of this to Bill Morneau.— David Reevely (@davidreevely) June 2, 2022
Most mass shootings don't get covered as national news anymore. There's simply too many. https://t.co/h3ciAr9AWF— Greg (@waltisfrozen) June 1, 2022
The Uvalde massacre story is getting stranger every day, and the odd police reactions are convincing more media that there's something being covered up:
It's about mental health alright. The delusions of the Republicans believing that guns aren't a problem.— Cory Papineau (@Iam_Canadian) June 1, 2022
This fuck was the one who made the decision to not breach the classrooms. He’s just walking around and going to work like normal.— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) June 1, 2022
Fuck this guy. https://t.co/IvcMohxs6F
Texas law enforcement said days ago that all the kids in Uvalde were shot by Ramos. This sent off red flags; that perhaps the police shot a kid. Now radio communications have surfaced with a kid saying "I got shot", and authorities saying "They shot a kid." What's going on?— Don Lewis (@DonLew87) June 1, 2022

Hopefully the Ukrainians are calculating correctly. They do seem to think that they can really damage the Russian Army this way.— Phillips P. OBrien (@PhillipsPOBrien) June 1, 2022
