Happy Solstice, world. Today is the shortest day of the year (here in the northern hemisphere). The days get longer until June 21 at 3:13a at my location, but let's not think about that right now.

Dear @TwitterSupport please bring back @jvipondmd. He provides Albertans with necessary information about covid. He's been a champion for Albertans throughout the pandemic. If it wasn't for him, Alberta wouldn't even be testing for covid right now. #ThisIsNotRight

Calgary is the largest city in the world with no intercity passenger rail. In the WORLD.

Those War Amps commercials make me realize what an absolute blast I'm missing by not being an amputee

I've been screaming this for years now. Food Banks need MONEY. Donate MONEY.
Tis the season for viral "This is what to donate to food banks!" posts. Money. Donate money, y'all. The food bank can get better deals than you ever could. And it streamlines their processing and distribution process.

Another QAnon shibboleth: "Mandates aren't laws."
As an autist, I would like to get this tweet tattoed on my forehead. If you don't want me at your party at 7pm, don't fucking say 7pm on the invitation.
A noted communication deficit of neurotypical people is their habit of assuming that no one ever literally means what they say.

BRAVA.
It's impossible not to see the fundamental disregard the UCP have for the lives of residents of AB. I can't stop thinking about the repeated UCP drunken work soirees while HCWs were sacrificing themselves and their families in a battle to try & save the /1

Conservatives are fiscally disastrous. Profoundly malfeasant. Incompetent. Criminally incompetent.
To be clear: this has been a 10-year process, starting with Joe Oliver’s β€œforeign radicals” attack letter and Harper’s nuisance audits. It’s eaten up millions of dollars and countless hours of innocent people’s time. It has found nothing. It is a farce and a disgrace

My opinion: The inquiry and war room have lived up to their purpose. Their purpose was never to get jobs back, find illegal activity, or uncover scandal. It was to transfer money from Albertans to friends of the UCP in a massive grift. Mission accomplished.

I was today years old when I found out that you can get documents printed FOR FREE at the @calgarylibrary. I printed a 5pp doc at Memorial Park. And I could've submitted the job from home! Every user gets a $5 credit per month, which is good for 50 b/w pages. Libary cards FTW.

This is a blip but a good blip: the mayor of Olds, whom I saw on a tv interview complaining about how his "rural" town shouldn't be subject to Covid restrictions, was defeated yesterday. Incumbents were re-elected all over the province, but not that him. Good riddance.

And at last, Chu wins by FIFTY TWO votes. Five. Two. Votes. He must resign.
