I don't mean to alarm people but the forces currently driving our political agenda are akin to the forces which produce tyranny and chaos if unchecked. This is not a dress rehearsal . This is the real thing . My watch is drawing to a close.
Yes we admire principled conservatives . And we need them front and center . But the harsh reality is that they cannot prevail in the current environment . The forces of right wing authoritarian populism are in full display and we really don't have a play book to respond .

If you ever want to feel frustrated, make your way into a Canadian Conservative or Wexit thread. It's bonkers what these people believe even in the face of evidence to the contrary.馃く #AbLeg #cdnpoli

Let's Believe The Bank of Canada And Do Some Mortgage Math Let's just make the assumption they are telling the truth and they will achieve the new neutral rate they talk about: call it 3.75% That's Bank Prime at 5.95% Okay what happens to payments? 2/

It's a matter of respect.
My last name is Sukhera. It is pronounced Soo Kay Ra. Not Sookahara. Not Shakira. Telling me 鈥淚鈥檒l never get this right鈥 doesn鈥檛 make me feel like you care. Try asking me if you鈥檙e saying it correctly and listening to how it should be pronounced instead. It鈥檚 not that hard.

For years when I was a child snd young adult, people would look at me and expect my names to be more exotic in pronunciation. I have two very British names that aren't the type requiring the tongue to do gymnastics.

馃挴 So much for conserving.
Why is the conservative answer always to cancel, ban, end, defund, tear up, rip out, break, etc. It is never about building. It is always about destroying. It is about taking away the abilities or rights of others. It is only about finding enemies, never allies. #cdnpoli

Logic, shame, and facts have no effect on slime like Stephen Miller. Voting is the only way to stop this madness.

Some people are bonkers. How hard is it to criticise without making threats of bodily harm or hoping such things happen to the person you're criticising?
A thread about death threats - prompted by the horrific attack on Salman Rushdie, and by the horrible online hate campaigns targeting female journalists, particularly those of colour in Canada. Bear with me. This may take awhile.

Wylie says Salman Rushdie is on a ventilator and cannot speak. 鈥淭he news is not good," he said. "Salman will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged."

People who ditch their pets on the side of the road because they no longer want to care for it are absolute scum. How hard is it to bring your dog/cat to a reputable shelter? Lazy pieces of sh*t.

You are all of us in this respect.
I have been curious what the tipping point will be for @GOP to break with Trump. I have wrongly thought we were at that point many times before so today I am skeptical we are there now but I really don鈥檛 know what line needs to be crossed because we have crossed so many.

There is no equivalence between how the Conservatives and Liberals employ divisiveness. Consider, as evidence, how Conservative politicians speak about @JustinTrudeau and how Liberal politicians speak about whomever the Conservative leader is on any given day. No equivalence.
