Windsor Police Arrest Protesters Who Remained at US-Canada Bridge
"So a good rule for governance is that the more decentralized the form of government, the less centralized it is, generally the more free the people are. Why? Well, because in order for the central kind of authority to be successful, is they must be right 100% of the time. Where if they're wrong, then you're wrong for everybody. This is what Louis Brandeis called the laboratories of democracy. Now there's been plenty of instances in the past where president suspended writs of habeas corpus, like Abraham Lincoln did. Now the justification was that we were at war against a power, a Civil War. Now, Canada, we got our Canadian history here, was actually founded by the British Parliament, so that totally proves my point. That it wasn't the states that came together and created a federal project, it was a foreign power that came and created the federal project. And so Canadians and their history and their culture, they don't really know how to deal with this sort of encroachment on their freedoms and liberties. Well, Windsor police on Sunday started arresting protesters, blocking the ambassador bridge. I'm reading from the post millennial. Up to 30 protesters had been arrested, most of whom were charged with criminal mischief. Police also seized 5 vehicles from protesters and 7 vehicles were towed Saturday. Police started detaining protesters after a judge ordered them to leave the ambassador bridge some protesters moved away on their own as police approached. Sunday morning. So the emergencies act is an act of parliament to authorize the taking of special temporary measures to ensure safety and security during national emergencies. So the British Parliament created Canada and then Canada has remained subservient. To the power ever since. So what's going on in Ottawa remains to be seen? But the push by Trudeau to get rid of these protesters crush them and early is very clear.

We're still gonna have to take out our laptops were still going to be subjected to that type of scrutiny there just certain benchmarks in life in society that you cannot go back. Two before and I believe if something which I think is good, which has come out of it. In an academic sense, we now know that we can continue education remotely. It may not be the best option. It may not be the preferred option. But if we cannot send our Children back to school in August in September, and I mean that in college and also secondary schools high school Then we have an option. We are now, if anything, Mohr repaired as parents and people to be able to handle that, But I don't think I'll ever go back to the way it was, if he only because we have to prepare and anticipate the next pandemic. And if we're doing our job will be better prepared for it. So none of this will be new. Our own business has been forever changed The whole fact that we've had Wayne, who's at home. Times when I'm broadcasting. I'm in the physical studio today, but I'll be broadcasting from home. When I do. The Mo Kelly show Saturdays and Sundays from 6 to 8 p.m. It's forever changed our business, and I don't think anyone can think about their own industry in the same way. You have companies like Twitter. Who said you can work remotely. From now on. Period, and a number of especially social media companies have made that change and I suspect We were already moving in the direction. Away from brick and mortar businesses. We were already moving in that direction, but now we're moving as a society away from that physical interaction that need for it and being a because of technology we could do A lot of our job's not all of our jobs, but a lot of our jobs. We don't have to be in a physical location other than our homes to do it, But I think everything has changed. Going forward from academia to our workplaces, even our home environment. All of that None of that will be the same Now I think we'll go back to something which approaches that normalcy at a certain point, But I'll never be like what it wass. And I don't know if that's all bad. I'm not saying that to say that that is all bad. I remember a time in which we had Phone operators that would patch are long distance calls. And maybe I know these guys over here. They're too young to remember. But there was a time and you would pick up the phone and you have to say Hello, Operator. Can you patch me through to whatever I remember. Going to Detroit and my mother's mother had a cottage up in Canada. So we would go to Canada by the Ambassador Bridge and their phone line was a party line. If you didn't know what a party line was, you have four or five people who could pick up that same phone residences could pick up the phone and you had a distinctive ring. So you would know it was for your house as opposed to someone else's house. I mean, I remember a time in which they had elevator operators. Someone would actually be on the elevator and say what floor they push the floor for you. There are people who used to do our traffic lights. Our society evolves and certain jobs do go away. That's the point. Certain jobs do go away and we move in a different direction, and it's not necessarily always a negative thing. Castle, and we won't ever be the same society after covert 19.

Detroit-Area Renters Are Eager To Leave. Even For Cleveland
"A piece of Detroit real estate news that made us say, holy crap. There's a penthouse loft apartment in mid-town. That's on the market for a cool one point four million dollars. It's in the Willy's overland, loft building on Willis street, right next door to the original Avalon, bakery, and coffee, shop, the free says the loft is actually two units combined into one on the building's fifth and sixth floors, the specs on this. When are three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms nearly twenty seven hundred square feet plus another fifteen hundred for the terrace, which offers views of downtown, Detroit, and the ambassador bridge. It's got a custom built steel staircase. A two story main space with Florida ceiling windows and a galley kitchen finished in walnut. Willie's lofts is housed inside a former dealership for the Willy's overland an early four hundred Jeep that was built and headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, the conversion to residential loss was completed about a decade ago with the addition of two stories. Not included in that list. Price is a four hundred seventy five dollar monthly condo fee will link to the free story on daily Detroit dot com. From the high demand for a million dollar, plus Lofton midtown to a new study that shows people who rent in metro-detroit are looking to leave town apartment list dot com has new data. That shows that people who are renting in our region are the second most likely in the nation to search to leave the area fifty percent of searches for housing by people in metro Detroit are for places outside of the region. Demand is very uneven after all in metro Detroit, some areas, usually the walkable more urban places like greater downtown Detroit. What you can't seem to build enough places to serve the demand, and there are waiting lists. The top cities people in metro Detroit, are looking to leave to Cleveland Cincinnati and Grand Rapids. I thought it was interesting to put these two stories together spend because actually I've, I've toured those Willy's overland lofts spaces before they're absolutely beautiful. But there's been a lot that has been sitting on the market until recently, and then it just starts starts to move, but they are beautiful spaces. And then you put. That right next to some stats like this, where it's like, really positive about Detroit, but the region, there's a lot of people can leave. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean I would love to see, you know, deeper drill down into that. But I think, you know, you're right that people, you know, we're, we're seeing really hot rental markets are places like Ferndale down here in midtown in Detroit. But, you know, you'd suspect out in the suburbs, you know, rental apartment buildings and stuff like that, that, that don't have any kind of walkable amenities or any, you know, access to a nearby downtown. I think people are, you know, you know, look, younger people don't wanna live in those in those kind of areas, we keep reading about that over and over again. It's there's no secret, well, and the other thing, I think leaders and this is a stat I think they need to grab onto to really embrace this change is that forty three percent of families now rent their homes across America that isn't just like a Detroit thing that's a national change. In fact, more people are renting now than in the last fifty
