I'm afraid you owe Shelley Biermanski an apology.
@thatSilvaLining @MarieFrRenaud and how much has NDP attack on economy helped increase violence in the community?— Shelley Biermanski (@ShelleyWRP) December 1, 2015
Browne, Salomon, & Bassuk (1999) found that women who resided in households that earned less than $10,000 annually had a 4-times-greater risk of experiencing violence than women in wealthier households.
Buka, Stichick, Birdthistle, & Felton, (2001) found youths from low-income neighborhoods witnessed significantly more severe violence (viz., murders and stabbings) than youths from middle- and upper-income neighborhoods.
In other words, there is a correlation between overall household income and domestic violence. So as more and more Albertans become underemployed or unemployed (due to bad NDP policies which yes are causing a loss of jobs exasperated by their hostility to a strong oil market) the incidence of domestic violence would be expected to rise. Indeed, says the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, they have!
You accused Biermanski of ignorance, of implying poor people didn't commit more spousal abuse, being offensive, justifying violence, only equating Alberta's job losses to the price of oil, not knowing what she was talking about, etc. etc.
Instead, she was speaking the truth, and you were just plain wrong.
(Forget what you said? Here's a reminder of your attack on Biermanski where you didn't know what you were talking about)
@ShelleyWRP @MarieFrRenaud WoW, are you say personal economics justifies domestic violence? REALLY? #ableg— Barbara Silva (@thatSilvaLining) December 1, 2015
@ShelleyWRP Was going to make comment on your antiquated views on dom. violence then noticed your Twitter photo is also stuck in time.— Dave S. Clark (@DaveSClark) December 1, 2015
I wonder if this is the official party position. What say you, @BrianJeanWRP? https://t.co/88n1d0Xpdq— Naheed Nenshi (@nenshi) December 1, 2015
@ShelleyWRP @thatSilvaLining @MarieFrRenaud Absolutely unacceptable. Domestic violence is an issue in St.Albert. Your comment trivializes it— Andrew Traynor (@T8NTraynor) December 1, 2015
@ShelleyWRP @T8NTraynor So only poor people are spousal abusers, Shelley? Keep tweeting. I'm ENTHRALLED. #ableg— Kathleen Smith (@KikkiPlanet) December 1, 2015

@ShelleyWRP call up the shelters and ask them if they were any less full during the boom. Don't deflect your ignorance on the NDP.— Jenny Jones (@dubblj1873) December 1, 2015

@nenshi @BrianJeanWRP @ShelleyWRP She should be made to resign. And pay for the by-election. Haters have no place in public office— Scot Dowden (@dokscot) December 1, 2015
@ShelleyWRP heeey, just wondering what's the income cut off to be able to blame dom. violence on the NDP? Or is it like an hours/week thing?— Commander Choi (@campbellcopper) December 1, 2015
@ShelleyWRP @MarieFrRenaud your insinuation that a gov would ever purposefully do something that increases domestic violence is disgusting— Edward (@EdRamsden) December 1, 2015

@ShelleyWRP @T8NTraynor You're legitimately blaming the NDP for spousal abusers? You and your party disgust me.— Rezelius (@Rezelius) December 1, 2015
@godougwinters @KikkiPlanet @ShelleyWRP @T8NTraynor @MarieFrRenaud I fail to see how a bad economy justifies abuse. It's not justifiable.— Matthew McKellar (@MatthewMcKellar) December 1, 2015
