This is my message to Canada on Canada Day.— Sol Mamakwa MPP (@solmamakwa) June 28, 2021
I will not celebrate with picnics and fireworks. I’ll spend the day reflecting, remembering all we have lost and how to move forward.
I ask you to do the same. pic.twitter.com/leXGe2206s

No. Stop it. Were Ken Holland a cat I would be spritzing him with water and I don’t even do that with my own cats.

Woof. No, thank you.
