I'm seeing some crazy stuff tonight on the social.
At least Canadians are enjoying this:
As an electrician, i'd like to remind Pierre Poilievre that we don't capture lighting from the sky. We work together with other trades, engineers etc to produce electricity which was made possible by left wing indoctrination education (aka the same science that produced vaccines) https://t.co/6vBFvnPzKS— Patrick Gagnon (@patgagnon_75) January 3, 2024

Here's some more crazy stuff :
My husband put on his Thor costume (don't ask, what happens in the bedroom, stays in the bedroom) & he's on the roof with his hammer waiting for the next storm so we can harvest some free electricity.— Kassie Dee 🇨🇦🇨🇿✡️🇵🇸🇺🇦🕊️ (@Kassie__Dee) January 3, 2024
I'm inside batter dipping my husband's corndogs.
Because we're EXTRA ordinary! https://t.co/8CzyHWXVsO
...the big story domestically remains that Saskatchewan is planning to move ahead with their plans to stop collecting the carbon levy on heat, and hoping that they won’t suffer any repercussions for it. This includes trying to put forward some legal fictions like trying to register the Government of Saskatchewan that’s the seller of natural gas and electricity rather than Crown corporations like SaskEnergy, which the federal government would be well within their rights to reject outright because it’s a fig leaf attempting to protect those Crown corps for breaking federal law. And to add to that, the provincial minister has been spinning the falsehood that the federal “pause” on heating oil won’t reduce the rebate, and that the rebates in his province should be secure if they stop collecting the levy, which is also false–the rebates will be reduced because that money comes from collecting the carbon price—it’s not a federal entitlement programme out of general revenue.
More crazy about the Claudine Gay resignation:
Has a single Saskatchewan media outlet pursued a single one of the politicians, federally or provincially, who are f**king around with this potential economic hit to many of the province's residents?— Tammy Robert (@tammyrobert) January 2, 2024
Or are they just going to keep cheerleading "SCotT MOE SaYS nO mORe CArbOn TaX" https://t.co/rrvt97I1I9
Yes, plagiarism is the problem here - Tom Nichols is right when he says Claudine Gay's resignation was overdue. Her accusers acted in bad faith but they're not wrong.

Harvard’s president is not the real story. The real story is that academics and journalists have spent the last few weeks debasing our professions by insisting that plagiarism isn’t plagiarism. That it doesn’t matter. That we all do it. 🧵 https://t.co/iB8q9hGQgu
