"But i really think that they see themselves working more broadly with the prime minister of the mvp. You know had had so many breakthroughs in quebec in past and and a failed to really to really break through there. A conservative leader erin o'toole spent a lot of time in quebec during the campaign and it seems that it has paid off for him. he's he's retained a few though seats and held off the blocking back wa- from from getting not number of forty that they desired and finally she was about moving forward. I mean how do the parties work together. Now that is the million dollar question. How will they be working together. Since this was the election that nobody really wanted to see poss- six million dollars in total to run this election during a pandemic and really all the parties pretty much got much of the same. There were a few losers or a few winters but they're all very nominal so it will just be an interesting question to see how they do end up working together because not a lot of people are really sure what these results means. They are much of the same and the whole campaign trail was just one party picking on the other party so it's hard to say what will actually happen and daniel the same question to you. Yeah i think The mvp plays an important role. As we've talked about jagmeet. singh really won a lot of people over. I think during the campaign. He's very eloquent But he did spend a lotta time attacking the prime minister which really I think will hurt their relationship going forward. That is a key Sort of relationship that needs to happen for the liberals to obviously have the majority of vote. So they'll be working with sort of two powerbrokers as i've said in in the bekaa and the mvp to sort of Get anything passed. I think those relationships are very fractured and justin trudeau has proved himself not the easiest person to work with but there are a lot of important issues and the interesting thing. I think out of this georgina. I mentioned i heard everyone speak tonight. All the party leaders. They're talking about the same things. They're all talking about climate change. They're all talking about Making canada more affordable place to live. They're all talking about something. Well we haven't mentioned yet. And that the reconciliation with indigenous people and the incredible issues that exist like getting rid of boil water advisories and things like that across the country. So they're all talking about the same issues how they'll work together. That's something we'll have to wait and see. Thank you very much So we heard there from one. Twenty four producer daniel beach with me in the studio and monocle sheena rossiter on the line from edmonton alberta. We'll have much more analysis on the election throughout the day. Right here on a monocle. Twenty four but still to come on the program again across to canberra for the latest reaction to the contentious defense pact between australia. The us and the klay. Pus were in new york as the united nations. General assembly kicks off. This is the globalist stay tuned as a one nine hundred investment analysts from over one hundred different countries over nine hundred of the sharpest moins and freshest thinkers in the world of finance today. Find out how we can help you. Contact us at. Ubs dot com. The new defense pact signed last week between australia. The us and the uk has caused upset in many quarters. France who's lost lucrative submarine building project. China who says it demonstrates outdated cold war zero sum mentality and also some members of the australian position. Well joining me. Is the saturday papers. Chief political correspondent in cambra. Karen middleton karen. Thanks for coming on. Could you just week out the nuts and bolts of this deal please well it's ostensibly revolving around the purchase of nuclear submarines The backdrop to that as ustralia was contracted to buy twelve non-nuclear submarines from france by a company called the naval group. And that contract is worth now about ninety billion australian dollars but speed plagued by delays and complications. The original design of the submarine number gonna buy was nuclear strategy. Decided it wanted a non nuclear option in that had added to the complications. So they'd been delay in buying the submarines anyway and now what we've seen in the last week or so is the announcement by three governments australian. The united kingdom and the united states government's all the new three-way security pact to be nine as orcas based only initials of all the countries Uk us and it will involve the sharing of more technology particular particularly nuclear technology and it will involve the purchase from the united states now all eight nuclear submarines at mainz the french contract is cancelled and the new security pact will be say is being seen as responding particularly to the threat of china. I three governments won't say that specifically i am. I wonder how it's being received by the general population in australia. I think there's been a bit of a mixed response. It came very much out of the blue and australia is still quite consumed with the current ivars. Half the country's locked down. So i think a lot of people's attention is still very so focused on on that and it might have had a bigger reaction Had had the circumstances of bank different but there is a constituency here in australia. That is because of the nuclear technology. It's been a controversial issue for many years. We don't have nuclear energy in this country so there is a question i suppose about how this came about so quickly and there's also concerned in australia about china and the china and it's more aggressive stance diplomatically and economically in recent years poses to a strategy of the relationship between australia. China has been fought for the last couple of years in particular on a range of fronts. We've been subject to some trade sanctions from china. So people are very conscious of Of concern about that relationship. And in that respect i suppose they might see this welcome development insecurity chan's albeit with some hesitation about the nuclear dimension to it Of course we know china's australia's biggest trading partners. I mean do you think there will be an economic impact. Well chinese displays. Certainly at the suggestion that this be mom these these new submarines frustration lamelo being nuclear armed. They'll just be nuclear powered. But there are any countries that have nuclear powered submarines and it does seem to see job of a more serious military capability in the region Australia's already trying to diversify economically away from china and we saw speech from the australian treasury josh rod and beg recently that really formalized that process. The industry was being encouraged in that direction..

But before we do describe for us on the ground The intensity of what refugees by that amount of numbers does to a normal infrastructure. And kind of, you know, whatever. Normal life is a TTE that time. It ruins it for sure. Here you have. As you said, you have four million in the country of Lebanon who are Lebanese citizens, and then you bring another two million Syrian refugees into the country. About 1.5 million. Of that two million are registered with the U. N or some other agency. About 1/2 A 1,000,000 are unregistered. This is prime ground for radical groups. To take hold of the younger generation when they come into the most of them live in the Bekaa, which is only about three miles from the Syrian border. Most home has spent about 30 31 days walking into the country with absolutely nothing and they get into the country of Lebanon. And they think their fellow Muslim people are there to help him and welcome him only to find out that's not the case and then don't top of that. They find out that they're not legal. They're not recognized by the Lebanese government, nor by the U N or any other agency.

Their mom disappeared in the middle of the night, never to be heard from again by middle. A standard. Sonya now is an orphan, and so is our brothers and sisters, but in the Middle East culture She goes to the next of kin, which has our great great uncle's wife, who already has six Children and really doesn't need any more Children to feed and she can and can't really can't handle it. So she tries to put signing up for sale. It is not successful at that, because hard for Lebanon grabbed her and said, no, Wait a minute. You got a better future and we put in our hope educational program and we stepped up and give the family some family care aide and started caring for the entire family. Now Sonya is a believer in Jesus Christ and sharing her faith with our other brothers and sisters endured the pandemic. She was one that would get our hope on wheels videos and start showing them to all the other kids in her 10 settlement kind of a child evangelist, if you would like the other Children in the tent settlement So when you're when you see the Children like this that have absolutely nothing.

are doing and Jack the best way to really understand what heart for Lebanon is about is to understand some of the stories of the lives that have been changed and I know that there are some that as you've been there as many times you have to just jump to mind to introduce us to one of these lives that have been changed well I'm gonna introduce you to to Kevin go from on and co lead their little boys that we met when we were delivering survival essentials to their family in a refugee tents settlement they came from Syria four years ago so that was about you know the midway point of what is now been an eight year struggle their orphaned basically well not basically they are or from there their father was killed their mother abandon them so so these little boys are really in desperate need for somebody to take care of them for somebody to love to love them and for now they live in a farmer's field in the Bekaa valley with their aunt and three other family members in in a ten and when I say a tent cabin you know most of us think about that that ten we pick up the sporting goods store and go camping on the weekend it's not like that at all these are these are just rude merry rudimentary supplies that people put together a little one by three wooden slats with factor on their forget the first time I pulled into a refugee tents element and saw an old Chevrolet Billboard draped over a bunch of wooden slats and that was a home for somebody in the Bekaa valley so you know go for Annika lead live in one of those they're living way below the poverty line what we would consider the poverty line they can go to school these little boys no way to get there our hope center in their location is full but that's why we developed something called hope on wheels it's just educational fun truck that shows up at the refugee tents element about every other week and the cool thing is when we pull into this one and I've seen it a go for Annika lead there usually sitting right on the front row it's really the only thing that they have to look forward to each and every week they love playtime there really attentive during the Bible stories and and the amazing part was that recently a we were able to watch them recite Bible verses knock think about this these are Muslim born children the came from Syria reciting verses like the I word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against god they've got a lot to overcome these boys still in the days ahead but they end their entire family are learning about hope right hope that they can only find in Jesus but that hold only gets there that hope on wheels truck only pulls into that refugee Tamil settlement because of the opportunity that we have right now to help and it's as those that are listening sacrificial we give eight eight eight two one one five nine four four eight eight eight two one one five nine four four I actually got to see a a virtual reality video that you guys shot and and it is so immersive it took me into the into the settlement camp and it took me into one of those hope on wheels advance and to see in in the way the virtual reality thing for works friends of for those of you listening you put the glasses on when you look to one side you're seeing the stage and the hard for Lebanon via workers that are singing the songs and leading them in the motions and you see the the the the enthusiasm that they have on their on their face and that they're trying to communicate to the kids and then as you turn your head to the other side of the screen what comes into the display is this pact and I mean packed it's like a Yankee game double header half price I mean it is active it is it is that you keep standing room only have everyone of these kids is singing as loud as they can and expressing with all their heart that Jesus is alive and that he loves them and that there's all the I mean I'm getting goose bumps just remembering what I saw and if I wasn't even there I can only imagine when you go when you see it for yourself but here's the here's the point friend this work is being done because you are faithful to give those of you that have helped thus far rescue eighteen families have ensured that the five or six kids that are in each one of those eighteen family so far are gonna keep having that hope on wheels come to them and share the gospel share the gospel in a in a predominantly Muslim region of the world Jack speak to that for a second because it's it's super unusual to be able to just openly declare the love of Jesus for people in this part of the of the universe well normally not permitted right in many of the countries in the Middle East and certainly not in Syria not today not eight years ago when this year in war broke out but god in his Providence had these people the poorest of the poor walk over the mountains of Syria if you know anything about the region Lebanon sits along the Mediterranean coast it's a beautiful country with the Mediterranean Sea the left the mountains to the right well those mountains to the right really are essentially the border between Lebanon and Syria and god in a in a unbelievable designed plan had these people through yes terrible circumstances some of them running for their lives coming across these mountains in settling into a place where they are free to hear the gospel Lebanon is a country where we can freely proclaim the name of Jesus Christ their greatest need their greatest hunger is for Jesus and right now heart for Lebanon is watching Jesus as he unleashes his love in their life Jack is gonna be one the most satisfying things you've ever seen there's no question I mean a couple of moments ago when you were saying I I imagine imagine the opposite I didn't have to imagine that the last trip that I just took their Kevin I sat in one of our hope centers in the south of Lebanon in a woman came in and I gotta tell you she's so visually let me just describe this I'm looking at her she's in dressed in complete Muslim address I have I've never seen and and again I know where she came from she just walked out of the refugee tents element I've seen those places their deplorable conditions I've never seen anybody with a bigger smile and more joy just coming out of her heart and she began to share what has happened in her life through a translator and this was the moment where you know what you were asking people to imagine a couple of minutes ago I didn't have to imagine it played out right in front of my eyes she battled down as if she was bowing down to Allah and then she crossed her hands as if to say I'm cancelling that out and pointed up to heaven with joy and I looked at the translator said I don't need I don't need a translation for that I know exactly what she was saying another word she was saying I've left my old life and I've given my heart to Jesus Christ and you know the coolest thing that happened in that moment I looked next to her and her daughter her little girl was sitting next to her and we found out that the reason this mom had come to know Christ was that little girl was in our hope center she had a chance to come thanks to people who are listening right now who give she had a chance to come to our hope center where she got you have the basics of education that she would not get anywhere else but she got loved on by teachers who love Jesus and had the chance to share the gospel with her and it was her influence in fact that mom was a literate and that little girl started to read the Bible to her because she was learning every day she started to read Bible verses to her that opened up her mind in her heart and she came to know Christ so it was that little girl that became our greatest evangelist friends and here is

Tampa stadium in Miami stadium. Joe robbie. But usually stadium tours only make one maybe two stops at a stadium in a given St George Michael, and you've always the the the behemoth that is the album faith.

It was you can't take whatever you want at the stadium. Goes three stadium shows in Florida three nights. No, you can't. And it wasn't three nights. It was spaced out there to nights off state. It makes sense why they all travel day. It makes sense. Why they why they went down to a smaller venue, Tampa article. And it said that George Michael demanded a shower footage of the buccaneers in order to play the stadium and the buccaneers refused to give that to him. So maybe that's why he played the expo hall.

"The greatest part about living in Beirut, brick our man in the Middle East. Adam Harvey is the easy access to the mountains that overlook the Lebanese capital when the snow falls beirutis cast aside daycares and head for the hills. Here's a confession. One of the reasons I applied for a job by route was because I knew that in Lebanon, you can ski of love the sports in service thirteen years old. And I strapped on a pair of skis at a tiny slope in the Brindabella's KARN forest seem terrifying, then I see state bumpy chaotic. But it was so addictive that I soon moved to the big time spins halls, but as an adult of lived in places like purse and Dublin and Sydney with a logistics and cost of skiing with prohibitive, my loss. Stop was Indonesia where the temperature didn't drop below twenty eighteen threes, and the closest thing to snow was the ash falling from mount going, and then I moved to Beirut. We can famously ski in the morning and swim in the sea in the afternoon. You couldn't do that. It's Megan's halls. Well, technically, you could but you'd need to finish at noon and dry for two hundred and fifty kilometers lightning speed to throw yourself in the ocean. And you'd being Tara in July the first time, I went up in January. I approached my Lebanese ski trip with the rigid discipline of someone who'd grownups gain on weekends in Austria, we've got to hit the slopes early. If you want to avoid queuing for forty five minutes at H T bar on parishes front valley. So I was out the door at seeks roaring up the mountain road by six thirty and at the resort by seven thirty that sea level to two thousand meters in an hour, including a stop to pick up skis and poles. I couldn't quite believe it neither I think could the cop hot guys at the resort called Mazaar.

End of the day. The cafes are empty at ten AM and packed at ten pm at Missouri. The ticket counter didn't open for another thirty minutes, a cool. My heels with a handful of the other early birds eventually handed over fifty dollars for a lift ticket. Good on the first chill. If to the day might fresh tracks all the way down and got strike back onto another lift, no Q. And this happened all day long. It was a dream the rest of the skiers arrived after ten AM, but the lift queues who really on the few minutes long at most basically had the mountain to myself and what a mountain wide open slopes loads of shoots and Kelly. To get lost in and best of all two huge. Winter storms had just dumped about full maters of fresh snow so much had fallen the snow plows had to dig channels beneath some of the lifts so they could operate Mozelle about the size of thread boat with a few flourishes that you wouldn't see ustralia the food and drink more interesting. I had a mountaintop Espresso with a size flack bread cooked in front of you on a middle dome. With a layer of cheese tire and yogurt spread on top. Just like in any ski resort. The music's terrible. The fashions more interesting was is the first price of seeing anyone skiing for coat the resorts in a Christian area and the locals have made their allegiance cle-, but decorating the hilltops with giant steel crosses from one of the highest chairs you can look across the Bekaa valley to the mountains of Syria as I'm recording some audio to accompany this report I ever hear a pair of skis taking in view.

I head back to the cow pock, which is pandemonium the light cameras roll arriving. Now after lunch, I've never seen this an astrologer we might as well give up if you haven't arrived by ten the ski slopes might have been sedate, and peaceful, but the roads leading to them, and now frenzied is a five kilometer tailback as all the light comes sitting stalled traffic police stand on the narrow mountain road, waving arms and shouting as they try and fail to order the traffic, but even with all the cups drivers pull out of their line and roar up the wrong side of the road booking me and the other cars coming in the opposite direction. Everyone comes to a standstill as impatient. Drivers. And try to squeeze back into the other line. Everyone honks that everyone else tap my horn, just to join in the party, but none of these guys can Rick my good mood. I'm in a post mountain high skiing in Lebanon is paradise.

"But as Jeff Feldman US ambassador to Beirut from twenty four to twenty eight as mentioned earlier Lebanon appeared to be fertile spot for Iran to gain a foothold Feldman explains. How disaffected and politically weak Shia population of Lebanon was a ripe target for Tehran. Feldman reminds us that the Iranian revolution occurred in the midst of civil war that have been racking Lebanon off and on since nineteen seventy five the liberties of war provided an opportunity for Iran to show that its owner the Lucien its own she Slavic fervor could be exported. It's revolutionary Islam could be exported further in nineteen eighty two the Israelis invaded Lebanon. Not for the first time for significant time. With the Israeli invasion. Thousands of residents thousands of farmers peasants in southern Lebanon fled northward, the vast majority of these eleven Shia the Lebanese Shia had been a despised disenfranchised part of Lebanese society, the Maronite Christian elite the SUNY elite tended to look down your nose at the Shia. And then you have the Shia are being displaced by the Israelis. The Shia themselves had suffered during the time of the Pilo the Palestine Liberation Organisation's. Basically occupation of southern Lebanon Hilo was firing missiles trying to tack Israel from southern Lebanon that affected the freedom of movement of the Shia population. So the Shia were full of grievances by nineteen eighty two the Israelis the previous problems from the Palestinians. The fact that their own government their own the lead had basically ignored them kept them sort of a futile like serfdom. So they were right for exploitation. The Iranians realize this when the writings, of course, are Shia as well. So you start to see signs in the early eighties of the Iranians trying to build a constituency inside Lebanon for this sort of revolutionary. She is Lomb the rumors are that they were thousand fifteen hundred of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards who were doing training getting financing to build. She a movement inside Lebanon using the Shia majority areas of Lebanon such as southern Beirut, south Lebanon, and the northern Bekaa valley hair malaria and the world I notice this with the suicide bombings things like the spring nineteen Ninety-three bombing the US embassy inveigh route the autumn nineteen eighty three bombing of the marine barracks. Turned forty one marines killed the Italians the French were attack the US embassy. Annex temporary embassy was attacked the following year. This obviously caught the world's attention to what was happening where revolutionary. Iran was building a movement inside Lebanon that could show that this was not a Persian or Farsi only phenomenon that this could affect the population as well, the airbrushed as well, and it was sort of an anti imperial anti-occupation movement.
