‪I wade knee deep through the dregs of Canadian political Twitter sometimes and know this: Canadian political discourse is every bit as deranged as the US. No difference. We could easily end up like Trump-era US or Brexit-era UK.

I just saw a PPC supporter say they want to abolish the capital gains tax but expand the CPP and protect it from the government. If working class supporters of right-wing parties actually just talked to each other, their base would implode.

Luckily, Twitter isn't the voice of Canada. Social media in general is little more than a river of shit.
