It seems like they're not releasing specifics about the location of the "retreat" and if, where, and when he will be visiting locations in the city.

I'm guessing it will be somewhere in the Ancaster area.

So we've gone from billionaires, of which there are c. 45, to the "richest 1 per cent" of all Canadians...

Do you really believe that in a country of 38+ MILLION people, just 45 people being taxed more is going have any significant impact?

A grand total of, what, about 45 people and their families? As long as they make their money legally, help create jobs, and support charities, what's the big deal?

Yes, they could put red crosses all over, but for some enemies this means nothing, just makes them a more desirable target. I guess they're allowed to engage if their patients or their own lives are in danger, but not engage in combat. It would make sense for them to stay out of the fight because they're the ones who have to deal with everyone else getting wounded.

Since you know what a combat medic is, then you can google the term to see for yourself that they do carry weapons.

Here's an example (from the US military):

"Corpsmen and medics with combat troops carry a double burden. They do everything that Army soldiers and Marines do – although officially noncombatants, they are authorized to carry weapons to protect themselves and their patients – until a soldier or Marine gets hurt, and then they have to become lifesavers, sometimes under fire." https://www.ocregister.com/2006/08/04/medics-carry-a-double-burden/

Another article states he was a dual citizen. From what I understand Ukraine requires people who become citizens to renounce their previous citizenship within two years. He may have become a citizen in order to serve in the military so therefore would eventually have renounced his Canadian citizenship.

Not sure that he's being misrepresented as a medic. You're basing this on the fact his holding a gun in some pictures?

These kind of people migrating to Hamilton perfectly explains the last municipal election.

Not sure how many followers he used to have, if I'm not mistaken he's lost about 5000 or so.

Yes I was, but these are colours from the UN, not the 80s.

Nothing overt from what I could find, just a few retweets about vaccine clinics. I'd say there was a good chance he was vaxxed.

Thought this was a photo of the suspected abductor, but no, the description actually states that "she" has a goatee...

Thomas: "I think it is always worth it to stand on principle--no matter what the ultimate goal is. Wrong is wrong, even if it was over a penny."

Kroft: "Thomas believes the real issue being fought over during his confirmation was all but unspoken."

Thomas: "The issue was abortion. That's the issue today. I mean we can-"

Kroft: "This whole thing was about abortion?"

Thomas: "Yes, that was the elephant in the room."

Kroft: "In what sense?"

Thomas: "That is the issue that people apparently are so upset about that, uh, you determine the composition of your Supreme Court and your entire federal judiciary, it seems now."

Kroft: "Your opponents were afraid that you might at some point rule against or overturn Roe v Wade."

Thomas: "I have no idea what they thought, but they knew one thing--they weren't in charge of me, so I wasn't going to do their bidding."

"It's fascinating that people, there's so many people now who will make judgments based on what you look like. I'm black, so I'm supposed to think a certain way. I'm supposed to have certain opinions. I don't do that. You don't create a box and put people in and then make a lot of generalizations about them." (60 Minutes interview in 2007)

Roughly a dozen schools have received threats, including elementary schools. What are teens so upset about in our leftist "inclusive" school system that they would want to engage in this sort of behaviour?

Yes, the pandemic is over, but it likely will never go away. Once enough of the population gets NATURAL IMMUNITY nobody will or should care about it more than they do the common cold.
