stand by your jam

Ms. Beyak attempts to shift responsibility away and place it on the victims. Instead of requiring the people and the institutions committing and propagating racist genocidal acts to change, she attempts to  silence the people harmed in order to absolve Canada of its responsibility. Given that Canada has a post-apology, post-TRC political reality and a government that has stated its commitment to a relationship with Indigenous Peoples based on a recognition of rights, respect, co-operation and partnerships, Ms. Beyak has no place sitting in the Senate if she continues to shamelessly espouse racist, ignorant, and genocidal views.

Immediate action is required.

I ask that, in your capacity as interim leader for the Conservative Party of Canada, you remove Senator Beyak from the Indigenous People committee in the Senate and then remove her from the Conservative Party caucus altogether.

Furthermore, I also ask that you support my call for Senator Beyak to resign her seat in the Senate.

Excerpt from a letter from Residential School Survivor and Member of Parliament, Romeo Saganash, asking Rona Ambrose to remove Lynn Beyak from the Indigenous People Committee, to remove her from the Conservative Caucus and to call for her resignation from the Senate, based on her comments defending the Residential School system.

I really liked seeing Julia and Quentin hanging out. Because it’s just so platonic, and even shadeless Julia doesn’t want to disappoint him. It really shows, that even before Julia lost her shade, Quentin helped ground her to her emotions. They’re such good friends, because they balance each other out. I hope this is a foreshadowing to them fixing their friendship. I think it would be really pleasant for both of them to have someone who understands and knew who they were before all this crazy stuff happened.

I don't think I'm gonna survive the 7th of April (or album 😨). I don't even have high expectations like the media (even thought I know he's talented and has a lot of potential, my son 😍) but it could literally be him breathing in the mic for, like, 5 minutes straight, and I... I ahsgsiveushs no, no, no, NOO. I don't think I'm gonna survive this!!!

harry: *silently breathes into the mic for five minutes*


what she says: I’m fine

what she means: When Taako, Merle & Magnus recover the temporal chalice, Magnus is able to resist its thrall because he has no desire to live forever, saying that the ultimate reward for living a full life & dying a noble death is finally being able to see Julia again in the afterlife. In the eleventh hour arc, when the boys realize that they’re dying, Magnus must have had the thought for a split second that he was just about to meet his wife, but had that ripped away from him when he wakes up in the white space, and reminded of it again and again every time he died.
