In Alberta, residents evacuated from wildfires are being told they must return home and "live with fires" in a clear parallel to covid messaging. Covid infection propaganda has opened the door, enabling dangers formerly considered intolerable to be recast as inescapable https://t.co/xhjnbYgcBW— Nate Bear (@NateB_Panic) May 11, 2023
And in spite of the irrational anger from this rancher at this meeting in Grande Prairie, I did think he had a point about how he needs better communications from the municipality to show whether livestock is at risk, etc:

Meanwhile, in Grande Prairie…— The Breakdown (@TheBreakdownAB) May 9, 2023
“You can’t keep us out of the evacuation zone, this is just like COVID and we’re not going to listen, put your efforts into posting pictures (not fighting the fires) or we’re gonna go in, what are you gonna do?”#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/PseFKr4LWT

Meanwhile in 🇨🇦, we changed our passport illustrations
Part of the "controversy" was actually funny:

Canada has unveiled a new design to the Canadian Passport.— David C (@DGCroadguy) May 10, 2023
My first thoughts are that it’s too big.. pic.twitter.com/t6sM3oXkxx
But then Jen Gerson and Andrew Coyne and even The Legion got sucked into the CPC outrage machine. They should be feeling a little embarrassed about how easily they were played.
Absolutely loving all the "The passport is too big" jokes. Don't stop. https://t.co/Mnra1EJ0nP— Les Perreaux (@perreaux) May 10, 2023

Yes the change of a passport is the most important thing we need to be discussing right now🤦♀️ #PierrePoilievreIsAbsurd— C__Dill🌷🇨🇦🇺🇦🏳️🌈 (@19Mensch63) May 10, 2023

The Liberal government has added an optional image to the new passport design to ensure conservatives feel included:#cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/NZemcOIHR2
Everyone had already forgotten about this, but people complained 10 years ago about the passport design that was introduced then, too, when the Harper government redesigned it -- and that was because they added way too much white settler history.

Finally, tonight was the Trump "town hall" on CNN - and it is now time to revive #ETTD (Everything Trump Touches Dies) because that is what will happen to CNN:
People complain about a new passport design every time. It's nothing new. https://t.co/CGRbGMeLoN— Derek (@TorcityD) May 10, 2023
So as I scrolled through hashtags, trending topics and replies tonight, I noticed three distinct groups of people.— Khashoggi’s Ghost 🇺🇦🌻 (@UROCKlive1) May 11, 2023
The largest group was absolutely appalled that @CNN would allow this dangerous lie-fest, and extremely disappointed in @kaitlancollins. CNN angered their viewers.
Regardless of which group you may relate to, it seemed pretty certain that @CNN did themselves no favors tonight, and whatever the ratings for their townhall turn out to be, I'd be willing to bet their overall viewership goes down over the next few weeks.— Khashoggi’s Ghost 🇺🇦🌻 (@UROCKlive1) May 11, 2023
Trump will do for CNN what he’s done to all of his other businesses. https://t.co/sVxpmDJTBg— Tea Pain (@TeaPainUSA) May 11, 2023
American media always seem to think that THIS time they will be able to hold Trump to account!— Cathie from Canada 🇨🇦 😷🏳️🌈 (@CathieCanada) May 11, 2023
No reporter has ever done it, bc he doesn't consider himself accountable for anything he says.
It's like interviewing a lizard, & watching him flick out his tongue to catch flies.

There's a 20 year gap in life expectancy between deep red areas of the US, like the southeast, and blue areas like New England. Your lifespan in the US relates directly to where you live and how it's governed. https://t.co/44nXMocc4o
Meh, I'm not wild about the Corporate Memphis style of the new passport pages, but the splash of red leaves on the dark blue back cover is nice. In any case, who cares how it looks as long as it gets you through customs. The pre-Harper passports had a maple leaf on every page and nobody was throwing fits about how boring they were. This is just more manufactured Con outrage.
I agree, Cap. Just so dumb.
was just watching the late news and was shocked to see people at their burned out farms and the reporter was saying people were returning to their homes or what was left of them. Perhaps smith doesn't want to spend the money on evacuation centers. Oh, well we will see what happens and if a bunch of people die due to returning to their homes it will clearly demonstrate how stupid the politicians and some of the voters are.
You don't learn to live with forest fires. You get out of the area and wait it out. Burning to death is a tad painfull
It all seems to be related to the "you can't tell ME what to do!" syndrome now in our society.
Well we could send them silver engraved invites to move it along so they don't get dead, just a suggestion
