I think i sound a little cocky here.
I assure you im not.
Ive been afraid for my life and the life of the person dearest to me since February the 10th 2017.
Ive been afraid for my freedom, which i suppose if i have to really think of it i never really had in the first place, since that same day.
I left Alberta with my partner, because we were dying there. And noone was helping us.
Not the medical services.
Not the social support.
Not the #lethbridge #police
Not even emergency services.. Yes that's right. 911 services in #lethbridge #alberta. If you were to pull up the phone records of one Makayla Veenstra's phone records (and perhaps the phone records of Brian Fulljames) from the first week in august 2017 (i forget which day the incident was, perhaps the 4th or maybe the 5th) you will find that 4 times in total 911 was called from the address 519 Columbia blvd west in lethbridge, regarding a group of more than 20 people crowded outside our come looking for a brawl. You will find that the 911 operator was informed of the situation and of the fact that we belived our lives to be at risk.
The next time we needed them not only did it take over an hour for them to actually take our roommate to the hospital, but an EMT (from #Lethbridge i might remind you) admitted, with direct eye contact and admitted to me that 'sometimes CALLS ARE IGNORED to weed out the ones abusing the system'.
And now? Alberta is fucking with us here. The relentless bastards dont know when to quit.
I know they cant win... but that doesnt help the crushing fear.
