Despite making up just 5% of Canada’s population, 30% of the country’s prisoners are Indigenous. Across the prairie provinces of #Manitoba, #Saskatchewan and #Alberta – regions that have higher populations of Indigenous people – that number rises to 54%." https://t.co/7ANmmvJFCe

@UbakaOgbogu A right of passage for too many. It hurt me more as a parent for my children to tell me about such things than it was when I was subjected to them back in my school days. It's a combination of "how dare you hurt my child that way!" and "I can't believe this is still happening"😥

#covid19bc #bcpoli it was #420 today and I guess everyone decided to get outside... I don’t think our messaging has been clear enough. This was from today at English bay. Sent to me by a concerned citizen https://t.co/fdtZrUzc59

I'm reluctant to talk about this, but I wasn't treated properly at registration at the vaccination clinic. I was asked to prove that I was HIV+. I had already gone thru a pre-screening process and questionnaire, and provided my Doctor's information. It was unacceptable.

As a doctor, & science communicator, you need to present complex ideas in ways all can understand. So here goes: THERE’S NO ‘MANAGEABLE’ LEVEL OF COVID ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. THERE’S EITHER CLOSE TO ZERO OR THERE’S SHIT TONS OR ABOUT TO BE SHIT TONS https://t.co/OqkRRhekog

At least 420 schools (more than 1 of every 6 schools in Alberta) have *current* alerts or outbreaks of MULTIPLE covid cases in the last 2 weeks (numbers from @SOSAlberta ) But I’m sure covid is not affecting their learning 🙄.

BC Premier @jjhorgan and PHO @DrBonnieHenry prevent British Columbians from crossing the street but not from flying in from the Covid wildfire that is India. Looks and sounds as scientifically solid as @fordnation's plan for Ontario. https://t.co/PNFtQ9db1E

Listen to the majority of the Autistic community and start respecting their voices and wishes for the puzzle piece to be thrown out... let’s start using the symbols chosen by the Autistic community instead! #AutismAcceptanceMonth #AutismAcceptance #AllAutistics #ActuallyAutistic https://t.co/gLbnfSP9P9

The covid-18 UCP MLAs told us ten days ago the tentative, smallish actions taken by the Premier were overkill. He faces a caucus revolt and continues to dangerously pander to them. Jason Kenney may make up tales. He may lie about the science. The numbers don’t. 👇🏼 #ableg https://t.co/NN2XNH5emc

💯% “Inconsistent messaging from health officials making it harder for people to follow rules. It's very hard for people to get message & then get a different message & yet again different message & really try to understand all of this.” ⁦@bcndphttps://t.co/QRX81kNXLJ

@MichaelSchwandt @SprkJoy4BtrDays @TheRealSkriver @LisaSingerUBC @WestcoastBCLife @VicLeungIDdoc @auscandoc @LadyScorcher @CPita3 @kprather88 I think BC's hierarchy of controls could really use input from occupational/industrial hygienists. It's their profession. COVID-19 hierarchy of controls from other jurisdictions aren't like BC's, it is ...unique. 🤔 /3

"Pretend there's an autistic adult listening to every word..." THIS. So much this. So much I'm crying reading it. Bc this is what it's like. It's bad enough having to mask to survive. It's a million times worse when that mask gives ppl a free pass to hate you to your face. https://t.co/KfJXVyvDMV

@SAndersonshpk These teachers have PROMISED to be held to a higher standard for the benefit of Alberta’s students. They KNOW this curriculum isn’t at even a decent standard and it is against their code to even consider teaching it This is something worth fighting for; our children’s future

The UCP continues to use the words "teachers union" to disparage us. The Alberta Teachers Association is a professional organization made up of PROFESSIONALS! We aren't fighting for just us, we are fighting for EVERY child & EVERY families right to the best public education❤✊ https://t.co/COMKKamEUi

Watch as this government continues to dismiss the concerns of teachers. It's wild the disdain with which they address teachers and the "teachers' union". Wow. To Alberta's teachers, you deserve so much better. I'm sorry. I know it's hard. We won't stop fighting for you. #abed https://t.co/1cAzSCpZu1

@MichaelSchwandt @SprkJoy4BtrDays @TheRealSkriver @LisaSingerUBC @WestcoastBCLife @VicLeungIDdoc @auscandoc @LadyScorcher @CPita3 @kprather88 Ah, there's a few problems with BC's version of safety control hierarchy. Worst: masks are only shown as PPE, they should be high on the list as source control. Masks are poor PPE, while respirators are actually the PPE needed. Also, eng controls omit ventilation, filtration /1
