Pretty much what he developed all his notoriety for ... refusing to use someone's pronouns and pushing back on C-16 with that claims that he would go to prison for it?

Is anyone surprised that the left wants anyone who can't be brow beaten into agreeing with them be canceled. We used to be a society that could listen to other opinions without this abject fear. Today it's my way is the highway. Opinions are like :cuss: holes. Everybody has one and most are full of :cuss:

In the next Provincial election the voters in Kelowna-Mission can choose to elect the candidate of their choice. The current Shadow cabinet is controlled by leader of opposition.
So send your displeasure about Merrifield to Kevin Falcon.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

No surprise here. Cancel and shaming are the only tools in the tool's toolbox.

I only recognized and will only use he/him for biological males or she/her or biological females. Don't like it, to bad. Don't care.

We used to be a society that respected each other, that seems to be lost ...

I am offended!

Wait, "I" is a pronoun, and that offends me. So is "me," damn it, maybe we have to ban the English language because it's offensive! Argh, "we" and "it" are pronouns too!

From now on, just use the word "peoplekind" in place of all pronouns so that peoplekind aren't offended by misused pronouns.

The likes of Wilbur Turner and the faux outrage over Ms Merrifield's twitter account are what's wrong with society in this peoplekind's humble opinion. Peoplekind are so distracted by peoplekind being offended that peoplekind have spiraled into misery. Go live better lives.

Is trans born or created ?
The woke cancel culture is the product of the deep roots the marxists have developed since WW2.
It starts with socialism, but to gain full power by way of democracy, the weakest in society must be made relative and given what they can't achieve themselves, which is a unearned income for their vote. This creates dependency that the taxpayers are on the hook for.
In the last 50 years the marxists brains in the western world, example PET, have used identity politics to create social issues, justifying funding, establish bureaucracies to "help" the created groups to be totally dependent on government handouts and become enslaved in the cult so they can be further brainwashed, so they too become creators of issues needing taxpayers funding.
The victim now become the social experts the cult needs to create more government funded payroll positions, expanding the dependency model. The goal is to have the majority of paycheck receivers, dependent on a government check for their survival and force them all to adhere to the cult ideology and doctrine for continue to receive their survival check from the government.
Canada is now in the final stages of such reality, because if you don't drink the cult's Kool-Aid, you will be cut and publicly shamed and lose your privileges by seizing your bank accounts, cancel your DL & vehicle insurance and once the cult take over is finalized, confiscate all of your belongings. Look no further than china, russia, NK, venezuela, cuba or any other totalitarian regime. Those who benefitted from the identity game and thought they won, don't jump to high, because in a totalitarian system there is no room for social issues, those will end up in slave camps, only to realize then the real resolve of identity politics, is slavery.
Dependency is slavery
Independency is freedom.
Still your choice, but it could soon be to late.
Please make sure you know what you wish for and vote responsible and keep in mind that imo the only way to survive as a human specie is by way of natural order. This is how humanity evolved for almost 300,000 years, so those who think that a bunch of progressive activists can change nature's rule overnight, will be in for a rude awakening.

When is enough, enough?
Mistake after bumbling mistake Merrifield cannot seem to keep her fingers off her phone, quoting anti-LGBTQ and misogynistic 'doctor' Jordan Peterson. This is WHILE she holds the portfolio of Liberal critic for Gender Equality and Inclusion!! She either doesn't 'get it' or she is utterly incompetent as a political leader. One day I'm reading about how her forecast for the next year is full of doom and gloom, not offering any suggestions as to how to improve the quality of life for residents of her consistency. And today she's making headlines quoting a misogynistic, anti-LGBTQ proponent. Not to mention her tone of supporting, "..a lot of trans-exclusionary activists. She retracted a Twitter-like about some laws that had changed in the U.S. that were discriminatory toward trans people."

There is something truly offensive about someone who takes a position of power and influence in public office to shine a negative light on some of our most vulnerable citizens. Renee, you should be ashamed of yourself and you really need to smarten up with your Twitter engagement. Just because you don't understand the gravity of what your quote might mean to others isn't as you called it, "...nothing more than someone trying to make something of an issue that it simply is not." It truly shows that you either don't support the LGBTQ community, or you're too dumb to understand it, my thoughts are a bit of both.

If the BC Liberals and Kevin Falcan had any integrity, they would remove Merrifield as critic for Gender Equality and Inclusion ASAP, before she can :cuss: anything up any further. She's been a slow-moving car wreck for the past 2.5 years. I ask the public, what has Merrifield done to better our community in these last 2.5 years other than negativity and controversy?
It's sad that you don't understand what Jordan Peterson is saying because you're so filled with hate you don't take the time to understand what he is saying and you want to throw labels on people that you know nothing about.. Mr Peterson has helped more people than anybody else in this world with his common sense and honest and open dialogue.
I'm going to do what you do to Dr Jordan Peterson .I'm going to dismiss your whole rant without even reading it because I know you're already off the rails filled with hate and vile for something you don't take the time to understand.

Wow, so there is a small glimmer of intelligence and hope for leftist parties. Miracles will never cease? Jordan Peterson is a smart psychologist/philosopher who puts a number of common internet philosophers to shame. I would agree with him in terms of compelled speech, use of prenouns, and more. There is no reason to can Merrifield. She must have hit a narrative-nerve somewhere. The fact others lead with attacks rather than a conversation tells they are not worthy of leadership.

Jordan Peterson is not misogynistic, he's not transphobic, he 's not anti-LGBTQ, and he is not discriminatory towards anyone. What a dumb post. It isn't even news worthy.
