"In. It's just nonsense that using more fourth using more repression is gonna stop people risking their lives to come in hope of finding something better. You know so. It's just. I bet you a question i mean. It is a hugely important victory. I don't think we should underestimate that. It's like when the fast military officers were successfully prosecuted. Guatemala the millage officers responsible for heinous crimes in during the civil war. I was in guatemala. For the first time. Officers were held responsible for sexual violence against indigenous. Remain why that doesn't mean this. Been a whole load of trial since but if it was historic and does a president you know and i think that we should really recognize that. Yeah so what do you think. Bet does legacy within sort of hundred society or whether in the political movements do you expect to see more political movement because of this as well. You know what i mean. I mean it difficult because the political system is so corrupted and stock. I mean if elections this year. And you know the lebron candida is mel's allies y the amada and it's like christ site. Can you just not go away and get some new people. Chubby is like it's it's so style and stop missile. You know we've been the political system. It feels really hopeless. I think and i think you know when the coup happened six months before the elections. But if i was a vice president candidate on an independent ticket there was this group of independence. Really trying to do something different outside. She wasn't she didn't believe in the pipe political system actual you know what that she believed in was rewire in the constitution. Somebody actually reflected a social contract with the people you know and i think until that happens. You're basically i mean you can try and patch up things but what you've got is a complete defunct system that really is set up to serve those who abuse it and it's going to continue to do that. Whoever's in power. Right in the the american government that to be honest with you never really address this head on. It's not just address is popped up exactly. It's like enabled it. I mean it's an yeah anyway Hazardous had become vice president. I don't think she would have let the. Us continue to use honduras as a military satellite. My money is on that. I also think vice president harrison added to make a visit and like. I said this was vice president. It'd be a different type of conversation. But that's oh michael. Would you just love to see that. Where can people find more about your work. I know you mentioned the book again. Because it's been a labor because excellent and you know your shit as you know when it comes to the so. Where can people find more about you if you go to the guardian website and just put in my name. You'll find my page where i've got less about honduras in central america these days.

"Some people to account by a. It's not thanks to a justice system. The justice system that found castille guilty is the same justice system that criminalized her that you know that sanctioned an arrest warrants against out for trump up charges bought by the damn company that sent the security forces out to repress this community because thanks to them this is thanks to the immense pressure and determination of those that knew and loved and respected her. Yes so what. Have you heard this week given that you've written a definitive book about this in the family and you know we've talked with you in the past. What have you heard. Have you heard from people in her circles. How they were a reacted to all this. I mean i think the emotion that i saw you know amongst arcades and how mom and others they were so many tears of joy you know. I think was celebrated as a victorious day immensely important step in what they see still as long struggle towards justice. This is an over for them by a long shot but they let them you know they should feel proud that you know that they have the five and a half years since but the custody was murdered. Had kids have family have never had a minute degree. They've never had to be victims. You know it's because it's been on. I remember i went to hunter is really soon after the murder to start investigating her death and i admit but the when she was alive but it was the first time that i met had mata i've met so i'm to have had daughters but feet and louder and i remember saying to me that day. We've been a month for them. Killed side we know that this is now known as the only way that we're going to see justice for mom if we demand it if we you know we fight for it. That has been what they've had to do. You know to just make the criminal justice system do each job you and so and so. That struggle is long they they won all of the executives new majority shareholders to be investigated. I mean one really important. Point the dramatic moment of a trial was when said a financial manager of this. Time is a man who danielle attala. It's his uncles and dad. Who are the majority shareholders. Now basically we know from all the phone evidence evidence that we've collected that it was daniele w castille that were running the show day to day by so in latin america. Because it's a spanish legal system it follows you know. Victims designated victims can prosecute alongside the state so in this cave but has children and her mom have been prosecuting alongside state. And they were judges permitted them to call daniel attala as a witness so honest as weasley fellow. He tries his. I was watching. It live uncommon lied and he toys everything to get out presenting cool. He basically he's his time to be there in court as a witness and the lawyers opened up a laptop with him. Say i'm sorry. I can't come because of the code risk and it's like oh you kidding me and the judges actually respect to the judges but doing they said you've got an hour to get here. Get here boy. And so he comes down all sweaty and you know being a weasley and but basically said. I don't think you can make me testify. Because i understand. I'm onto investigation in this car for this crime and the the states the state prosecutors had to stand up and confirm that yes he actually remains under investigation now goods and he should be but let you know five plus years later. They still haven't even interviewed him. That's yeah that's what i mean. It's like it feels like if there wasn't the pressure you have the history like you have mentioned defenders of died before and have died after it's the same issues. Is this a moment. Do you think this an isolated moment or is it really. The the spark that continues to push sort of what has happened in under us. Like you know what i mean like a resistance because bedtime was so well known was a fighter too. I mean everyone thinks about the kosovo says this timid like she wasn't. I mean you've talked about it written about it like she was a bad ass. I mean yeah. I yeah you would. You would wonder on your team exactly like she's a better it's like in and so she spoke out. She was vocal. Like i'm sure there was plenty of men behind closed doors. Who had choice words for her. That i don't wanna get into. You know central american patriarchy but i can only speculate but is this a moment is this isn't isolated moment or is this going to be because you think about central america you think about sort of the complicity of all this that it's a massive frigging system that has had years of you know like impunity. Impunity and corruption are the operating systems. Honduras is an broken states criminal. Stay function exactly how it was designed to function to serve the interests of the economic elites. The system is there to maintain the status quo. It's doing exactly what it was set up to do like it does in mexico like it i think. What am i mean. You know miss all broken states. These are functioning exactly how they were meant to. I think it is really an important moment. i think not just because it's so emblematic. But because for the first time in the history of honduras a powerful group has been put on trial by and that will no matter. What make people think that it could happen to them. By on the other side of that coin though what we have is the president one orlando hernandez and his national party are basically a criminal organization masquerading as a political party. We know that the multiple trials haven new york drug trafficking charles where he has been identified as a co-conspirator in of a major trafficking organization. They've been in power since taking power by force in two thousand nine in the co and nothing we've seen yet from the biden government. I mean that. The coup happened doing bomber in clinton's reign it. Things got much worse during trump's administration but nothing we have seen from the biden administration suggests that they are willing to stop doing business with you know with the current may she. I mean considering the trade off that they wanna make the grand bargain here. Yeah migrants right because you put it in the migrant so we didn't want migrants here so let's go down there and mike it's almost i wouldn't say they're appeasing but there is a little bit of like let's work with you right. Well liking the other leaders of guatemala salvador they have leaders willing to use force against citizens by have willing to do. But let's just remember that. In the last twelve years since aku hundreds of thousands of hindu. I mean hundreds of fastest probably way over half a million way over have fled honduras why to come to the us when these regime has been in power. Wash regime has been permitted to do what the us wants why. You cannot stop desperate people from doing this book things but when your choices to stay and die or try or die trying which you paik.

"And yeah. i'm back. I'm back in a latino rebels groove. I don't know why i just said that. I was quoting as freely from kiss. But that's a deep cut. We were off last week. But as you know we featured one of the podcast from the community podcast lab in akron with little media. We're going to be featuring more of those big shout out to black super dads so happy we got to feature them. And there'll be more coming in the meantime we're back my producer. Oscar is just got everything booked. Lotta shit has happened. In the last couple of days. And especially in latin america particularly with bertha cassidy's but i also wanna talk for a couple of minutes about the assassination of haiti's president and i have a fabulous guest who has been on in the thick with me and my idea and has written a fabulous book about Tacitus has been on the latino media collective fabulous guests from new york. You wanna say who you are high. I am nina lakhani. I'm a senior reporter at the guardian based here in new york and and also the author of a book. Which i'm about to plug who killed by the damn steph squats an indigenous defenders battle for the planet. Please go and buy it. They go and we brought you on because this is in the news but before we talk about like. I said it's do. You have any thoughts about this. Assassination of the president of haiti. And like have you follow. I've been following hitting for a couple of years knowing it's you know there's issues but it kind of went. I'm like damn. I mean yeah shocking. But maybe not surprising in haiti a country. Where political unrest and assassinations and coups are sadly the norm as international interference. I think we will forget that. Haiti was the first country to win. Independence in the americas. And you know this off how it's a success and how its future has been really just hugely influenced at impacted by the colonial power. Still and new colonial powers wanted to interfere in haiti. So yeah it's really sad. But i think the patients have got a really tough time coming again if the country. That's the least corona virus vaccines in the whole of the region. So it's gonna be a tough time. It's just shocking but anyway we did wanna bring you on because there was a lot of news that happen in the trial regarding the murder. Bertha casas do you wanna report. What actually happened earlier this week. I'll put on your reporter hat on first because you wrote about it for the guardian and then we'll talk a little bit about the reactions show so on monday afternoon monday morning. Sorry tegucigalpa in honduras. There was a verdict in the second trial the merger of the cafes and it was a historic day. I really can't emphasize that enough. That dovey lovato castio. Mahia was found guilty of a co author of the merger of bud custody and some of you will remember that there was a previous trial back in two thousand eighteen when seven people were convicted. Right and no seven people included the hired hitmen. The scenarios and middleman. You know there was people from the company and army people etc now. Castille is the biggest fish to fall by far his full military intelligence officer who was trained that the very pacific west academy here in new york state. yeah. I felt to america at the moment of that. What i'm glad you brought that. Just take him hats off to america. I mean seriously. It's in your yeah. Yeah y'all again and have a form of government employees in honduras and he is. The president of the damn company called desa which bertha was killed for opposing that had already been established in a fast trial and it was confirmed in his date. Which court will that hamid was planned and executed because she had interrupted. I'm cause delays in the construction of this hydroelectric dam on the real world care. Which is a river considered site could buy length people and she had cost the company money. These delays in construction had led to financial losses. And that's why the decision was taken to murder. Her and castillo is by far. The my senior pass said to be held accountable. He was not the person. I would say who were calling the shots. In that company there were others that the shed will other shareholders of the executives. Who if you think about how hunter is operating. How many countries operate in. Latin america is this majority shareholders on members of one of the most powerful economic and political clans in the country. None of those people have been brought to a cow but he you know he really is a key passan. We know that he was the one that was liaising between the middleman and the company executives you know. He was the one that pretended to be. But the cadets is ally and friend in order to govern information about her and her whereabouts you know he's the one that authorized paid informants within the lenka community to basically spy on her and organiz ation. So that i knew what she was doing. What protests will plan and then it was the other more powerful people who we know from the phone. Data would call on their contacts at political context context in police insecurity to send swat teams and police and army. To repress violently repress these indigenous people who were trying to oppose the construction of established so we know that now and merely the fact that have family and friends and the international pressure made this kalat criminal government holds his trial and find castio guilty. you was. The evidence was overwhelming a low of in my book as well is read historic because people with power people with money never never face justice in honduras. Never and this. This is really is know. It was a historic victory for the family. That's the part that i am grasping right. Sort of the impunity. That has happened in the past and this lack of accountability and it was their like but the thing is i think the point. You're saying. I mean it was so clear that this happened right and and it to hide this would have been. I mean it would have been it would have been. I mean it would have been so such an obvious travesty. I mean what are you. Go with something like that after you know what i mean. I mean if it hadn't been the pressure that if i hadn't been the there were many defenders who were killed before but many after why none of justice so it had been the pressure created internationally bar have family by organization by the thought that she was an internationally celebrated leader to. Let's remember that she had been awarded. The prestigious goldman flies environmental defenders less than a year before she was killed. She'd had an audience with the pope in rome but she was known all over the world because she would travel and spend time we've indigenous communities everywhere in every continent to learn from them to share for them so she was so well known and that focus in pressure is what made this criminal state.

How are you guys doing out there. You know We're doing okay. Kovic is bad. i hear now. Berta of the numbers are very grim. But at the same time people are getting their vaccinations. They're certainly not just a white at the end of the tunnel but The tunnel is flooding with light. The only challenge now is to keep up our discipline You don't want to finish poorly. You don't wanna dance before you hit the end zone or any other number of terrible cliches so we really wanna make sure people are getting their vaccines up. All the good behaviors wearing masks keeping your distance staying home when you can. The good news is as we get more and more people vaccinated. Things will start to get better and i'm hopeful that business and everything else will be able to come back but it's not great at the moment. What's it been like Guiding a city through something like this. It's obviously Something you could never have predicted you would be leading a municipal government through and and it must be a all sorts of challenging but also all sorts of rewarding. Maybe you guys have stepped up. Well you know it's interesting. Because in the long history of calgary thirty six years we have declared a state of local emergency. Exactly three times and lucky me. I got to the mayor for all three of them. So if you'd asked me back in twenty ten you know what i was expecting. I probably wouldn't have said one disaster after another.

"Berta. Volt from more than one. Hundred and fifty million years ago and then explosively diversified culminating in more than ten thousand species distributed worldwide. Today are human. Relationship to beds is complex to seen as spirit messengers of the gods and at the same time. We took the wild red jungle fowl. From india and selectively bred into domesticated chickens the now farmed in cages feathers have been used for thousands of years and indigenous headpieces and at the same time but has like parrots and parakeets a kept as pets bird poop called guana was used as the first fertilize of modern agriculture. And charles darwin study of galapagos finches was to the formulation of evolution. Buds are all around us. We are closer to bed than any other wild animals birds. I literally and figuratively are canaries in the coal mine. Their wellbeing is our wellbeing threats to buds range from habitat loss including logging climate change industrial farming with pesticides invasive species and even cats. These will had a devastating impact on the bird populations of the us and canada. Which in just the last fifty years have declined by. Three billion birds danton insane. Thirty percent of all birds gone. Three billion pez of wings have vanished ever across our continent from sea to shining sea. Luckily birds have strong allies in their corner. There an estimated sixty million active bird watches in the us alone and with the pandemic shutting down so much of our country. We have flocking to bird watching like never before everything from bird feeders. To binoculars have been in short supply and this year the birding app e bird collected more sightings in a single day the was admitted during the first two and a half years of the apps existence. I must admit coming late to the bird-watching pardee. But thanks to dr meredith williams. That's about to change. I'm lucky enough to work with meredith every day in her role. Running one of the most important and complex agencies in california governor. The department of toxic substance control. Dr williams received two undergraduate degree from yale and a doctorate in physics from north carolina. State university meredith then worked and silicon valley fortune. Five hundred companies in the technology consumer product and chemical sectors meredith left the private sector to follow her passion for wetlands and birds and led the san francisco estuary institute as we'll hear. Meredith journey is about so much more than her resume. Meredith nine meet apt get ready for my maiden watching invention merit so we're about to go hopefully bed watching what. What do we need to bring with us while like what. What's what's in the bird watching backpack almost nothing. Which is great binoculars. Of course are your starting point. So i hope you have some inaugurals. I know you were looking for some recently. You gave me some good advice. But i get any but we all kind of professional but what just like you would have an extra pair. Do thought so. It's in the office but we could stop on the way out of town. Not of that sound. No we should. We should yeah. You just kind of out now. Okay okay so you got the binoculars. How do you if you're starting out. It's surprising how good have gotten very affordable these days so i mean it's still a lot to invest but ask a bird watcher. They might have an extra pair. That's the first place you might wanna try like them. What do you well. first of. All there are lots of different kinds of birdwatchers in terms of some people. Want to count every burden get really long list. And they track every single birthday they see. It's about the numbers of the that very unique bird and they chase vagrant birds that fly in unusually and they're rushing off to see that bird so there those kind of bird watchers I'm a bird watcher. Just watch one bird for a long time. I liked bird behavior. just i'm just fascinated by them. And i think they're beautiful so i could just end up watching one bird for for quite a while you can just take it. In at whatever level you want in terms of the variety birds that you could see and how you would just experience them and enjoy them. So and i think the only way to find that out is to bert. Watch a little and see what grabs you What you do sounds really peaceful. The first thing that sounds the first thing sounds more. Like in england as a whole breed of people go train spotters and i always kind of identified them with bird watchers. Like it's really about. How many things. You've you've been able to capture and less about the bird the thing that you'll doing just sounds like being a peaceful will watching another animal even the people who are energized. That way unless they're doing a big day which would be a day when they map it out to see as many birds as they can. In a single day they're not necessarily rushing around even they are going to have moments of really enjoying a bird and even somebody like me chased around golden gate park looking for a rare warbler. That's very rarely in san francisco. There's an amiability amongst birdwatchers is really camaraderie. People are so nice. There's always somebody better in terms of being a better bird watcher. Meaning they either can identify birds better or you know they just have a lot of experience for the a little bit about. The ecology and people are so happy to share their information. That it's really wonderful. That's one of the things i like about it. And it tends to be every now and then you get into group and there'll be somebody who's a little loud but by and large the the folks are really kind of it's easy to get in a groove with with birdwatchers and settled and gopher along stroll and see some great birds. But what's there everywhere that it's a it's a big i mean like it huge movement and it's growing apparently it's one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. There is it's it is just kind of crazy places where i been going for ten years and cues to be just me and five or six friends maybe and now parking lot and i think the pandemic has made it even more so where a lot of people. That's how they wanna get outdoors or they've they've just kind of discovering it because they know it is one of the only ways to be outdoors so i think it's going to continue to grow which i think is great because then more people are connected to the natural world which obviously makes them care about it more. How did you get into meredith like what. What was your journey into bed watching. I mean i liked birds always in the yard growing up in ohio. You know the robbins and the blue jays. There was a hill in town. And i used to ride my bike up in the hill early in the morning and i would always see birdwatchers and i said when i'm old air quotes. I'm going to bird watch. And i kind of that seed was planted but i didn't really bird-watching until my three say in my thirties. I started volunteering for the san francisco. Bay national wildlife refuges. That you know are on the perimeter of the bay. You know them well getting restored a lot of them Back to title harsh. And i when i volunteered i would be doing everything from pulling out. Invasive plants to building shells but there are always birds around and i just became more and more and more fascinated with the birds invested in binoculars and just started creeping in. You join the audubon society and suddenly you're getting news about different outings and the next thing you know you're you're pretty far in foreign now. I'm foreign. I'm not pretty far and have taken a couple bird vacations. Which i think says that. I'm pretty far in. But what do those entail. The longest trip i took was to go to brazil to the pantanal. Which is a very large wetland like the mecca of bud watching their many mecca. It is a mecca over the course of two weeks. We just went out every morning. We get up before sunrise. Be moving by six o'clock at the latest. Usually more like five thirty and we went to a place that's called the parrot crater a giant sinkhole. And it's all a lot of parents live down in the sinkhole. And so you look down. A new parrots lying around in a simple it was tremendous and we ended up seen two hundred different species of birds there along with some giant giant eaters river otter is and it was quite a trip but the birds were spectacular.

As oil and gas declines, where do the workers go?

"Part. Three of our special five part series with the narwhal brings us to sharon riley. She is the l. berta investigative reporter for the narwhal. She's a lifelong alberton and she reports from the oil patch. Hello sharon hydrogen. How are you. I'm doing really well. And i'm excited to get a glimpse of what a really quickly. Changing industry Looks like on the ground. And why don't you just start. Maybe so we have someone to frame this around with telling me a little bit about dust. And taylor who is he and what did he do. It doesn't is one of the people that came across when i started looking into the energy transition in berta and what that really looks like on the ground for workers who are making the leap on their own so dustin was born in nova scotia. His his dad had worked in oil on an offshore oil rig there. He moved when he was a kid and he kind of has what. You would consider a fairly typical story for a lot of oil. Chris in this province but yeah i left left school before graduated and pretty much started working right off the hub and like most people numbered. I ended up in the energy industry working in oil and gas Making decent money. I mean it was pretty easy to find a decent job. He told me that it is first job. He made sixty thousand dollars a year. So i don't know about you. But when i was sixteen i was not making that kind of money. But that's a pretty typical story in alberta when the industry is booming oil and gas industry is booming. There's money to be made and of young people. Young men in particular in this province haven't always seen a reason to you know stick around pursuing education when you could support your family and your lifestyle so immediately right out the gate and what happened to him after he'd been there for a while and from your piece in your reporting i gather. It's not super uncommon these days. Yeah i mean. I think there are lots of reasons. Why an individual worker might decide that they want to shift out of the oil and gas industry their cultural reasons. You know a lot of oil and gas work involves working in a camp means being outta town away from home for at least a ten days if not a couple of weeks at a time. Which if you're if you're having if you have a family means you're away from your family for all that time as well. So what dozen described as a bit of a moral conundrum definitely remember watching the oil spill happen It was plastered all over the news for days. And i kind of watch this giant catastrophe. Just unfold in front of our eyes for days on end. Never really knowing what was going to happen. And it was kind of a heartbreaking moment he just suddenly something clicked in his mind where he decided that no longer could he work in an industry that he thought was detrimental to the planet and to future generations and he said that had a lot to do with him having kids and wondering about the world. They're going to live in and he decided to make a shift. It was a gamble for him. Where did he go well. He part of what does made him decide to make the shift as well as that. He lost his job so he lost his job so he went back to school retrained to be a solar installer in alberta. His story is the successful. He's now gainfully employed as a solar installer and he's completely left his oil and gas lifestyle. He can be home every night that that's not the reality for every worker who who may want to make a transition or have to. Because the job that they've had for many decades has disappeared. He had to do this on his own. You know he didn't have a lot of government support. There's no oil and gas transition worker program in alberta or in canada for that matter and so it's a. It's a financial gamble. It involves a huge lifestyle shift and something he took on his own. Before we talk about you know how the transition is moving along and what's to come. Can you give me a sense of just how prevalent of the oil and gas industry is in alberta. Because for for someone like me who's spends most of his life in ontario it can feel like everyone in alberta works in oil and gas. It can feel like that as well and there's are different stats out there. As to how many people are directly employed in the oil industry cap. Which is the canadian association of petroleum producers. An industry group. They said in two thousand seventeen so it's a couple years old now. There were hundreds of thousands of jobs from oil. And i think they said around three hundred and forty thousand now. Obviously that number has changed a bit since the pandemic kit. Everyone but it does go to show that. That's that's a large number of jobs and those are jobs directly related to oil so that doesn't include all of that hotels and hotel workers restaurant workers people who support the industry And the people who are directly employed in another way of looking at it is Looking at statistics. Canada figures statistics. Canada doesn't directly breakdown oil workers. It lumps them all in sort of what you might call extractive industries so that includes mining of all types oil and gas forestry fishing. And if you look at those numbers. One in every sixteen workers is employed in those extractive industries. So if you're in a room of sixteen people. One person is employed in that extractive industry. That is quite a few right. And where are we right now. I guess as we're talking in the transition towards renewable energy in in canada and around the world just in terms of how much longer that one in sixteen figure is going to be viable for albert. I think that's a million dollar question. We we hear a lot about the energy transition. We we hear from politicians and environmental groups. We've heard it from justin trudeau. We heard it from. Joe biden presidential debate that the us needs to transition away from oil. Even albert premier jason kenney has made reference to the energy transition is going to happen at some point here and just been pretty widely reported and repeated that if we're going to meet canada's climate targets many workers in fossil fuels will need to look for new jobs

Lamar reviews 'The Stranger'

"Good friend of ours recommended the stranger and she was not wrong. The Stranger is based on a novel by Hauling Cohen. And it was originally set in New Jersey but Netflix chose to move to England because evidently British mysteries or a lot cooler than American mysteries. And I don't disagree but along with that. Coolness comes that British accent that makes everybody sound smarter and what they're saying seem more important. It has its own set of problems. I can't always understand what they're saying to characters home sentences that will make everything clear with a hugely dramatic consequence and cargoes wait. What did you say go? We wish? Stop and rewind which means instead of going back to riot before the two sentences we wind up twelve minutes earlier so they're not trying to fast forward back to where we were and zoo passed it and then we see some that we should have seen until we understood those two sentences and callers like what are you doing and I said I'm over here if you could do any better take the remote now. We're having a fight over this because it's it's nuts nuts and it happened at least three or four times in each episode. So now it's like I don't know the words they're using this need. I need less mumbling. Okay and so what? I should have done what I'm telling everybody else to do. If you have this problem it's turn on the closed caption it so you can see what these fools are talking about. It's at don't ever have this problem. One Lamar the TV show peaky blinders learned how to turn the clothes caption on A. I agree with what you're saying but right now there's some guy from England who's living in the United States saying are you telling me some guy from Georgia is criticizing how the English speak what they invented the language. At least it looks like they could speak it clearly. Mean no it's true. It's very and the toughest understand out of the all of the United Kingdom Areas is Scotland Scottish. Accent to me. I can't even understand what they're selling. Well I keep them I turn on the closed caption for peaky blinders and for outlander because when some of the side outlander characters dodger that. I'm pretty sure that Berta just said something critical to the plot. I have no idea what it was so I feel you Lamar. When Kelly was learning Japanese. She told me that she would. She would go to this place where the old Japanese men were talked to them. She said the hardest thing to understand is old because everybody they've been talking to each other for so long they just sort of say half the word and everybody's sort of picks up and I think this is what's happening here. I'm not getting the whole things I don't know anyway. Back to the story the series Stewart Richard Armitage and hit as Adam price season attorney has a wife and two boys. He's approached by this attractive young woman. The Stranger played by Hannah. Joe John Cameron and she tells him that his wife has a secret and she has been lying to him for the last two years she tells him or he can find the proof and now that he knows that she's a liar. He no longer has to stay with her so this she just leaves now. When he confronts his wife his wife says well. There's more to it and I'll tell you everything but not right this minute it while this is going on. A decapitated animal is discovered in the middle of the town. Along with that comes. Multiple visits from the stranger to other people naked bodies found in the woods. Really Bad Cup. I really good cup murder embezzlement blackmail infidelity and so many other things that have nothing to do with each other or do they have power.

Are you tired? Theres a reason, it's Daylight Savings Time

"I I don't know about you guys but I'm tired. Part of that is the ceaseless Rahm of end of the World News. Of course part of. It's just work or family or the everyday things that always get to me by the end of the week and this week in particular there is another reason. I'm tired and you know it. Or at least most of you deal with the exception of most of Saskatchewan and none of it. You Lucky Jerks Canada's sprang forward this week and if this world isn't seem bleak enough now it is once again dark when I leave my house in the morning every year more and more people ask why we have daylight saving time and the calls to abolish it grow louder and now we may in some places be ready to actually do away with except there's about of course there is what happens if some places in Canada eliminate daylight saving time but their neighbors either to the south or to the side. Do not put up some places decide to stay on permanent daylight time and others decide the opposite. What if every province and territory makes their own call and we end up with a maze of time zones the plays hell with scheduling things like sporting events are flights or deliveries. The last thing any of us want is they solution. Daylight saving time ends up making us even more tired. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story. Alex mckean a reporter at the Toronto Star and their Vancouver Bureau and she's Ab. As tired. As I am I out. How are you? I'm tired like I said this time shift always throws me for a loop. Yeah me too. I mean I was actually not only experiencing the time change weekend but I also flew to Toronto and then back to Vancouver so I've got double jetlag going on so your province is perhaps maybe on the verge of getting rid of daylight saving time and we will talk about that but first because this is a really good part of the story. Can you just tell me who is Ray Saunders? Sure Ray Saunders is a gentleman who just recently turned eighty years old and not a lot of people in Vancouver may recognize his name but they certainly would recognize his most famous creation. Refunders the maker of the Gas Count Skin. Kwok which is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the entire city of Vancouver. It's this incredible clock that is powered by steam and has whistled plays a tune every I think every fifteen minutes or so tourists come and look at it in the context of this historic part of the city gas town with. Oh it's a it's probable streets and they take pictures with it and Race unders is is the guy that built it. He built it in nineteen seventy seven and for a long time he He maintained it as well. Now it's maintained by the city of in coober but she wrote back walk and two hundred other public clocks in Vancouver Canada and all over the world to we can a year. He goes around to all of the Public Clark's in the city of Vancouver and surrounding area and he has been the guy who's responsible for manual we. Changing those public Clark's to reflect the time change at daylight savings time so He he describes me that during the this spring forward period which just happened this past weekend. Most of the public clocks they'll have kind of a speedup function and so it'll take about Six seconds he said that for the two wine forward an hour to reflect the new delay time and of course the the opposite happens during the fullback period in November. So He's been doing that for twenty years or so. It seems so quaint in a way but this might be the last weekend that he'll ever do it. Tell me about that. Yeah that's right. It might be the last weekend he ever does it And it's you know it's kind of fitting away because as described when we were talking. He's getting older. He unfortunately experienced a fall recently which which made ladder finding a lot more challenging for him. Of course you have to climb up the ladder in order to reach the public bases. So that's part of this task that he's been doing for for the last couple of decades So but personal reasons aside and personal limitations aside He also possibly last weekend that That this kind of topic will be required in the city of in coober because Bc is looking out just mixing the time changes all together And I I think you're right it it is. There is something kind of quaint about it if if I could just describe a little bit about Something that struck me talking to ray was that he has this really interesting relationship with clocks and time so I mean I'm a millennial and I will admits that most of the time that That I'm actually checking the time. I do wear wristwatches but most of the time I'm looking at my computer screen or looking at my phone that's the thing. That's like really intuitive to me. Ray has this this cool relationship with clocks. Where he says look. There's something lost when you're just looking at numbers on a screen. The clock face the circular nature of it the fact that the hands are always kind of moving around the tell us something about the time that has passed and the time that is yet to come. It's more You know accurate to the way that we actually walk through life and I thought that was such a such an interesting idea not anything that I considered at all so I think he his sense of affection for these public clocks in and the analog nature of them really came through so why is British Columbia considering getting rid of daylight saving time and how did that movement sprang up and come to be yeah. It's a great question And different people will tell you different responses as to the origin story of why British Columbia's dealing with this thing but I'm gonNA start with the practical elements of it. Which is the. This is a conversation that it's also happening South of the border in the western state so Washington Oregon California all considering changing to a permanent daylight time and that has pretty significant implications for us here British Columbia because we're coordinated with those states. There's a lot of commerce that happens between those days even things like as work scheduling. That happens along the West Coast and these are things that it makes sense to be in in the same time as them so Washington last fall passed legislation to change their approach to time to permanent. Be Lifetime. And that hasn't happened yet because they need the approval by the The Federal Congress there in order to make it happen but our premier John Horrigan Here British Columbia was in conversation with Governor of Washington State and said look. Maybe this is something. We're interested in in British Columbia is well. It's something that the the government launched a public consultation on. They sent out a survey and they received within the first month or so. They received more completed surveys than they ever have in the history of all public consultations on on this topic of changing to permanent daylight time so they received two hundred and twenty three thousand completed surveys Colombian yeah and overwhelmingly ninety. Three percent of people said get rid of it. We don't want time changes anymore. We just want a permanent time. Is that something that we see elsewhere in the world You mentioned it's happening already on the west coast of the US but also some parts of Canada. Don't have it as well. That's true and you know after I published this story on what? Bc is doing. I got quite a lot of emails from folks in Saskatchewan because the way described it in the story was that Scotch Wayne is on permanent central standard time but both insist on reminded being over over email but in fact according to the line to Scotch. When is that? It should be on mountain time zone for the same time zone as Berta so the fact that it's on permanent central standard time actually means that it's it's more on a permanent stay like time similar to what? Bc is trying to do so it all gets a little bit confusing but since nineteen sixty six scotch and has been the Canadian exception to this time. Change practice that we have been doing and the they've been on the most places in Scotland. Anyway have been on permanent central standard time. Alberta has considered it. I understand that there's also a private member's bill In Ontario on this topic. So if it's something that people are increasingly aware of but the one that I has really caught my attention in the last couple of weeks was the Yukon because of course the Yukon is also a jurisdiction along the west coast. And they've already pulled the trigger. They said okay. We went to move the clocks forward an hour this past weekend. And we're not going to change them again. It's just GonNa stay dot so Yukon. Who is the one that's most recently has actually made the changes that British Columbia is talking about? Making what is the case in this day and age for daylight saving time? Can

Whats driving the explosion in Lyme Disease in Canada?

"Today disease a complicated disease that we are having trouble testing for a disease. We never expected to see with any regularity in Canada only to realize perhaps too late. Maybe that was Donald. No this is not a new virus from across the world world. It's not some weird superbug. It's not particularly contagious illness. You probably don't think much about until it makes headlines because somebody famous something was wrong with Justin Bieber last year and we saw him with visas. Arm We we now know what was going on here. Justin Bieber has lime disease but it is a mistake to think of lyme disease as a rare illness because all of the data we have and we still don't have enough shows that it is exploding in Canada with numbers of confirmed cases spiking every year. Get One guess as to why but even that is not the key problem here what we need to figure out and fast is a comprehensive way to test for your dial and treat lyme disease because that's where we lag behind almost everybody else. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Janet sperling is a PhD candidate at the University of Alberta. She is also a board member number on the Canadian lyme Disease Foundation. Hello Janna why. Don't you just start I think all of us the term but maybe just explain what what lime disease is sure. Lime disease is one of the more complicated things you would hope that I should be able to say. Oh lime disease is You know a bacterial curiel owners and it's transmitted by tick but unfortunately when you peek under the covers it gets a little more complicated so if you go to the government of Canada website. And you'll see that lyme disease is Berea Bergdorf Ri- and you say Oh. Okay that's nice and easy I can follow what they're trying to say but now if we just step over the border a little bit to Minnesota and we look up the male clinic they say lyme disease is four main species of bacteria and then they list four types of Berea so now you know your head is spinning you say okay. Well what do they say in Europe so if we go due to Europe and we go for example to Germany we see lyme disease is caused by spy. Rookie Berea Bergdorf. Wry sense allow to which means it's a whole bunch of different Burrito So this is part of the reason that we're ending up with a really complicated answer to what ought not be a very simple question. Why do various countries disagree so much on precisely what it is? That's not the case with most of viruses or diseases. I assume right and I think this is one of the things when I first started like you know back in the nineteen eighties and I took my medical entomology. They said lime disease is a disease it happens in North America. It's transmitted by so I wrote that down on my exam tonight. Got One hundred percent and everybody said great and I said to myself boy. I'm caught. I live in Canada. 'cause I don't need to worry about lyme disease but the more we started to find out notable lime disease and the more we realized it is actually in Europe. It's been in Europe for a very very long time for example You know it sees the iceman man who was found You know he's Bronze Age. I think you know we back in a gleese your those fraud. He had evidence of lime disease. So we know you you know. We've had lyme disease around for a long time. People just didn't recognize it as lime disease so the more you look into it. The more you see that this is something that's called us a Nautica Kasese so it's found circulating in the wildlife and then he kinda jumps over to the people although the disease itself Rigas and aiming for are people so this isn't something like measles measles something that goes from one person to the other person. This is something that's circulating in. It's got Birds is involved in this cycle. It's got animals. You know deer mice all sorts of things so this is why it just becomes more and more complicated. The more you look at it and and of course as a person who's suffering from lung disease you really don't care about all that background just saying I'm sick. Just get better and that advantage of being a bacteria tirrenia is that means we can use antibiotics so I think previously people were being treated for lyme disease without even actually recognizing was lime disease. assise they had antibiotics for some other reasons. They got better. Everybody said okay. I don't know what it was but they're better now. We're very concerned that we want want to make sure that we don't over use the antibiotics so that ends up making it even more complicated so we have the people we know they're sick. We know that got got bit by a tick. We know that something is wrong so some of the doctors are saying okay. We'll give them the antibiotic conceive to get better so those people all say. I think it's lyme disease and other people say I don't think it was on disease at all. It was something else it was transmitted by tick. But it wasn't lime disease so now we've taken a really complicated problem and we've really muddied the waters. We have people who say I have lime disease and other people who say whatever it was. It wasn't lime disease but I'm glad they got better so if the waters are so muddy and to your point the description you gave about learning about lyme disease in the eighties was precisely as much much as I knew about. LYME disease period Why are we discussing it so much more frequently right now? Are we seeing spike. Absolutely and I think it's certainly only with the global climate change we're getting the tick has expanded its range so you know back in the nineteen eighties. Certainly ticks. Albertus stopped about sort of middle. The problems you didn't have to go very far. Well now. They're all the way out into the Yukon. So this is something that's changed. It's it's new. I think we've always had you know a a couple of topics here and there and the other place but now it's much bigger. We know that most Canadians live right along the US border so we know most of our population is sort of super at risk as the ticks start moving north. Do we have a sense of how quickly the problem is getting worse like. Do you guys have have numbers on no matter how quickly the number of cases arising well we don't we don't have numbers because the numbers are set to be very very specific to Berea Maria br door fry and then it's particular string thirty one that somebody described in Boston Massachusetts lyme Connecticut down in that end so for Canada. It's kind of difficult to say can say you know if you're looking very strictly for one type of Lyme disease we know that the numbers have increased hugely sleep but we also know it would be kind of unlikely that we're just Columbia would have exactly the same type of lime disease as Boston Massachusetts. You know there's a latta kilometers in between the two and then also There's huge mountain range and then to make at one stage more complicated the even have different species of tick so this is where people get annoyed because they say I'm sick. I think I have lime disease because you treated me as though I have lime disease but still it's been denied as being lined disease or even anything like lyme disease. Why don't we have a simple test that can categorize it as one of what may be many kinds of lyme disease for instance right? Well we do if your dog so if your dog your jet can in Cohen tests the dog and say okay you have a sick dog. The dog is Being picked up to have this general sense of this says lyme disease lyme Berea of some sort so your vet will probably just treat your dog and say I'm calling lime disease good enough for me taking antibiotics and get better. Okay but humans but humans don't have exactly the same immune response so a dog has a much stronger immune response so it makes it easier when you're a VAT and and also with the humans. People are so readable antibiotics that you have to absolutely meal the diagnosis before they're willing to give you the antibiotics in the first place and that makes sense because we have talked on this podcast in the past about the need to not use antibiotics. Unless it's serious I guess what's flung meal. A little bit is that this can be a disease. That's it's on the rise that's diagnosed in many places around the world and they're still not the same kind of credible test that can determine like okay. You need antibiotics. Let's go right and I think partly it's because it circulates among birds. It circulates among various little mice and small rooms all the way up to deer and that each one of these animals. This part of this really complicated cycle the deer can actually clear the infection so for example if I had a tick and I knew that that had most recently fed on a bird I would be quite worried or if I knew had most recently said on a most but if I knew knew that the last thing that tick fed on was a dear I wouldn't be very worried at all I would say. Oh okay. Fortunately that's very low risk from that particular tech so this is where I think people especially if your doctor and you've got somebody and they have very nonspecific symptoms because that's one of the problems. There's nothing that's really obviously. This is exactly lime disease. You know you can't stand the front of the room and say okay. People have lime disease and these people don't have lime disease so oh you look people. They've got these nonspecific symptoms. And you're saying I know they're sick but I just don't know what it is. We're going to start looking at a lot of different things. So there's this a big list of differential diagnoses. You need to go through. And then when it gets the bottom of the list you always have lime disease. And that's something that was missed for for many many decades and for example I live in Alberta. And we're still told. Oh you can't have lime disease because you live in Berta but the silly thing is to people travel awful and when people are traveling. It doesn't matter where I live. Where my house addresses if I live in Alberta maybe got it in California maybe I got it in Toronto? Well in speaking of California you probably knew at some point in this interview. I was going to mention Justin Bieber. Indeed and it gets back to kind of the problem that you're describing reading because when celebrities like that come out and announced that they've been battling lyme disease it often seems like he has the best medical care in the world right. He compay millions of dollars for the very best doctors and yet still People were worrying about him for months before he came forward. Exactly and that's I think it's actually shiver common story and if you were to take your average Canadian. Generally they're healthy people. They're living their lives eating wells sleeping well plenty of exercise and and then suddenly something happens. They get sick and they don't even necessarily associated with tick bite and especially in a place where you're not expecting to run into ticks like downtown Toronto. You might not think about it and as you get. sicker and sicker and sicker. Lime disease isn't even on the radar so it takes long time to figure out what it is and the problem with lyme disease is if you catch it early. It's very easy to treat. Take your antibiotics into the story. But if you don't catch catch it and it goes on for a long time like weeks or months or sometimes even years. It's really hard to treat people were saying and this is why I wanted to ask you about like how it presents. How the disease presents because people were saying that it looked like Justin had lapsed and that he was an addict and that he was really struggling with substance abuse? Right you and and I think that that's actually remarkably common and a lot of people find that obviously really hurtful and you can certainly understand and why if you've been

How Mason Buffalo Combats Suicide in His Community

"Four of Mason Buffalo's cousins died by suicide. He dedicated his life to helping others the man for musk. CHIESA BERTA says while everybody's been hurt in his community. He wants to give them hope again this. ABC's Roberta Bell has that. That story Mason Buffalo puts the headstone at the base of the white cross that marks cousins grave. Holy I'm just GONNA emotional denison Thomas not birthday other. He maintains the Samson cemetery in Moscow. Chief for she's buried alongside three of their other cousins who all committed suicide before they turn thirty. Look all my family here. It's easy for me to disclose known assume but it's easy for me to disco. String up give up on everything but I don't Wanna be either guy. I want to show people hoping community. He says his life is like many peoples in his community. He's struggled as a teen parent on the front line. China's young firefighter with alcohol with mental health and with loss in a community of sixteen thousand people. He says it surprisingly easy you to feel alone. That's why he's dedicated himself to being there for other in person and in spirit. If I wasn't doing what I'm doing right now then I wouldn't be here. I'll probably be buried in Vevey to guaranteed I would have been here in our fight instead helping other people off breath this is his story. Mason walks through the field behind his dad's two story farmhouse. where he grew? Up on the Samson Hamson cremation in Moscow chiefs all get behind his dad. Patrick Buffalo is a rancher and a hypnotherapist and Reiki master astor the reference point for most people is the past and their experiences. That's where they're stuck is in their memories. After Mason became a dad himself at fifteen he took a job with the fire. Department is a fire department. You don't know what call your on on his first day. The very first call it came in was about his cousin ferron three years later it was his cousin. Tyrel seem more. I looked lifeless. Die Total soda from their guts on my life went downhill fast for one full year. Not Something I didn't WanNa live. Noma Mason left my asquith cheese for Toronto. That's where he was when his dad called him and told him his cousin cody had died by suicide. I didn't even have time to come back and pay my last respects for cody. And it's tough especially for if people would what we're GONNA do some analysis step up and take the lead so he came home if you ask them to describe himself now. He says. Suicide side awareness advocate if our thought all my life and what. My plans are in everything that I didn't think I'd be what I'm doing. When he got back he started his first of many community initiatives walking and spirit so with all this as like when you commit suicide is there? You'RE GONNA be lingering around this area time too so it's like You lost your spirits. Lost people people from all four of the nations that make up mask. WHOA cheese now set? Aside a day every year to walk the reserves royal roads carrying handmade signs mementos wearing shirts shirts with the names of their loved ones written across their chests. My heart breaks into a million pieces each day on picking up these pieces and getting my hard-backed together and health and people helps me. Mason says the number of suicides look like they've gone down at least in Samson for him. The work is year are long and a part of everything he does. This team of horses at his father's ranch makes frequent trips to to the cemetery. Three funerals doing within the leaf they pull rehearse with big spoked wheels and light pink curtain toppers with tassels hanging from the top of the glass window on every side. It was an idea that Mason and his dad had to give community members that last ride. That's not all the horses to though. They're also helping people to heal nestled in the snow. Coated trees to the east of Patrick's barn is another project with his son. Mason came back and then he started making pass and clearing the bush and we bought a cabin set up a TV. They call it was dossier village. It's a place ace where people visit to confront their trauma. Going for a ride in a wagon with a team of horses is a very therapeutic. It's very healing going for a horseback ride. It's very therapeutic therapeutic. So that's what we offer here is Is that I am experience. It's so peaceful there it's like Like being somewhere else. Oh Patrick says his son needs to be doing this work for his own wellbeing and others so mason does have a strong villa vision for healing although he struggled in his own ways continuously. You know because he's had his own experiences ever since he was a child that he has to continue. Continue to deal with And it's no different and all with the the sixteen thousand people that live in this community and everybody's been hurt everybody's been everybody's stuck in a Rut. Not Knowing how to get unstuck. He knows what he needs to do and when he's doing it yes I feel good care when we can work as a team. I feel good

Imperial Oil ignored its own findings on climate change decades ago

"The effects of climate change are being witnessed all over the world. It's the biggest story right. Now there are downright apocalyptic take images coming out of Australia right now. The country's battling hundreds of fires that burned across the country for months now roads and villages turned into rivers overnight right and tens of thousands displaced many areas in central and southern Somalia have been completely caught off and people here are now in urgent. Need aide Greenland's is sheets is the biggest in the northern hemisphere and it's in meltdown. All of this is a warning sign for the while. We hear it all the time. This is a dire situation. Time is running out. It's a crisis. Makes you wonder if we knew what we know now. Old decades ago could we have done something to stop. The devastation. Could much of what we're seeing today been reversed in the troubling answer is probably doubly. Yes in fact. Some people did know what was happening. As far back as the nineteen sixties major fossil fuel companies are alleged to have known about Science and worse that they were contributing one major Canadian company in particular its own research and ignored the findings and as we hear from our guest today. Imperial Oil Royal Coulda changed its business. Model could have been a leader to fight climate change but instead just decided to make bigger profit often. I'm Richard Southern Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Berta Hussein is a writer at the intercept joins us now Heimer Taza. How good thank you interesting article? One that I think is going to the real eye opener for a lot of people. Maybe anger a lot of people first off. It's really centering around a company that we use here in Canada a lot whether we know it or not tell us what is his imperial oil. Who are they so imperial oil is the Canadian subsidiary of Exxonmobil? The famous Fossil fuel company. It's best known in Canada. Zal at the consumer level for esso-brand gas stations. So imperial is essentially Exxon's arm in Canada and Essel is its most prominent consumer manifestation. Yeah they're everywhere you know but a tiger in your tank bright and you're saying going back to what the nineteen sixties imperial oil knew about the dangers of climate change. What exactly did they know back then? Murtaza well in the nineteen sixties the specific contours of the problem. With coming into view. They will not definite about climate. Change percents at that time but they knew that they were causing serious harm to the environment and they knew that this would eventually lead to a public outcry cry. If Canadians became aware of the full scope. The heart they were causing annual this time. You think of things like air quality polity destruction of habitat destruction of ecosystems. It was only in the later decades by the nineties. They were very very sure are about the science of climate change. We're talking maybe. Almost three decades ago they had come to a high degree of certainty about the impacts of climate change. Despite that knowledge they did not change their behavior and in fact did whatever they could to prevent the public from reaching the same level certainty. EG about the issue that they have what did they do to sway public opinion away from what they knew was the fact that climate change was real and that they were participating ended. What did they do to sway public opinion? Well over a decade imperial has been very concerned about possibility of public backlash and particularly particularly if that backlash led to calls for regulation up their activities or the imposition of climate or environmental regulation but somehow impacted their ability to carry out their operations. So going back to the sixties and then onwards from there are they attempted to do their own public relations campaigns to sway public opinion to Muddy the waters over their own environmental record and to push back against any organized attempt to curtail their activities but it wasn't just Pr. It was also surveillance of non-governmental organizations in Canada local ones like the Canadian Arctic Commission and other consumer advocacy groups to go on the offensive against these people even though they were much smaller than imperial oil oil of course much smaller than Exxon Mobil. What do you mean surveillance where they fled following people around? Was the documents show that they were compiling dossiers on environmental loops in Canada information about their key spokes people their finances their addresses so documents. Give us some insight into do the type that could carry out until two or they did they. Certainly it was on the table for them. Did they do anything. Imperial oil to try. Try and mitigate climate change. I mean you write in your article that a a PR company analyze different ways that the company could reduce its carbon footprint. Do they do anything well in the early nineties you know. Many many decades ago now they essentially knew that for society to avoid the catastrophic this traffic impacts of climate change. It would need to move from fossil fuel extraction to renewables techniques like carbon capture. Many the things that we've discussed today is being necessary to avert the climate prices but the thing is right this knowledge they did not twenty significant degree agreed change their operation. They continued to extract at the same levels and even higher levels year over year this day. They did not engage in the fundamental structural changes that they needed to to avert this crisis but one thing that they did do and I think this quite telling is that they changed the design their own platform in the Arctic and elsewhere to accommodate the fact of rising sea levels and melting sea ice. So they knew this is real soul strongly that they changed their own platform designed to accommodate that but they did not embark on the structural changes. Their business models would have been necessary. And it's even more unfortunate. Because if they had them that they would have had a first mover advantage and renewable energy. You talk about the the Arctic you mentioned in your article and this may be one of the more shocking things is that they looked imperial looked at the the melting sea ice as a new business opportunity for them right right so essentially imperial and other fossil fuel companies day for a very long time had the best climate climate research capacity is any organizations in the world they knew very intimately impacts of change around the world atmosphere here and in the Arctic and now they developed capacities partly for the reasons I mentioned earlier because they were concerned about public backlash over their environmental. I mental record. They wanted to get as good a pictures possible but what they also did was that the this usage capacity which had offensively developed to you know hopefully reduce environmental harm or get a better picture of it also to scope out new business opportunities that may emerge in it radically. Did you date environment. They said hey the fact that there's less CIA is going to allow us to go up further into the Arctic and drill for more oil right more or less maybe more technical language but you just if it was that the fate of Arctic Sea ice will determine how imperial operates right another another interesting thing to with imperial oil was how they saw carbon taxing coming many years ago and how they were how they were sure that that would actually mitigate mitigate some of the climate change of facts right what what did they say about carbon pricing. All those years ago well they knew that carbon pricing would be necessary. She would use fossil fuel emissions but they essentially low ball the numbers the new. That's a much higher number of needed even many decades but they made proposals which were arts private private knowledge and essentially you know we would have probably taxes through which we do need need. Do we need to be much much higher than you would. He needs to be several decades. When imperial and other companies had essentially deceived? The public was imperial. Oil's response to all this. You ask them for response to these documents. You got about all the knowledge they had one of these say. Well you know one thing that I This article is very important that they knew these things privately but for many years thereafter. CEO's if imperial were saying doing things in public when she concluded odds with their own private use and affiliate odds with the consensus of climate change mainly in the late nineties. You know imperial. You see Yo- Roller Peterson was saying that carbon dioxide. It's good for your I'm in started pollutant. There's no consensus about this issue. All and you know essentially open to debate internally do not open to debate very serious and very real so you know response In the light of this it was just that they take seriously and committed to doing what the cans move with the climate crisis. And you know the the thing is not revert. This crisis is businesses usual. Something's GonNa Change. It should've changed three decades ago four decades ago but if it does not radically change now you don't have to prepare for very ugly future in which the vast majority of people many Canadians are going to suffer grievously. Should we be shocked by this. I I mean you know. The cigarette companies knew there product caused cancer. I guess the you know the candy companies. Probably new sugar wasn't very good for people but they kept selling it. This is what Capitalism demands should we be singling energy companies. Like it'd be real oil out. Aren't they just doing what. Capitalism demands of them the difference between the tobacco industry and big sugar and fossil fuel industry. Is that the consequences of these. Allies are much much sh greater than other basic consumer products and. That's not to say that the impact is tobacco and sugar on Health Canadians and others not been grievous what we're talking about eventually an existential threat to industrial civilization Industry Association. We may we now have a planet anymore on which even make future mistakes or to rectify current mistakes. That's why it's really really far more serious than those other phenomena. All those were also serious. Now we're talking about something that we've never experienced before human beings have never done anything anything on such a scale as what they've now begun to

"berta" Discussed on Repodcasting

"So I was looking at pictures of the real guy, I was like, maybe they really look alike or whatever, but no, they don't. So I didn't see a need to keep somebody who resembles physically resembles John hill in any way. And I think that Simon Helberg could get that kind of like, well, 'cause I mean Donny is kind of a nerd, at least the way he comes across in the movie this nerd who got all this money and power, and like went crazy, but a nerd, nonetheless, Ed Simon helping has kind of made a career on that. So, yeah, I think he would have been good at it, and then my second choice is really different. It's Jason Segel from forgetting Sarah Marshall and I love you man. And how am I your mother? Yeah. Oh that name sounds so familiar. Did you see forgetting Sarah Marshall? No. Did you see freaks and geeks? No. Did you see how I bet your brother? I've watched how I met your mother. He's Marshall the lawyer. Oh, okay. Yeah. So I don't know. He has a different look for sure. And he has a different personality in style. And so if the only thing you've seen him as Marshall, it might be a little bit tricky to picture him as as off. But in I love you, man. For example, he he's kind of this. Like, I don't know this weird guy. Oh, enel. So in what's it called knocked up where I think these are close kind of close to the real person his where he's a little bit odd kind, quiet. But like when he says stuff, it's kind of like take notice 'cause you're like would and so watching that scene in the restaurant, where Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jonah hill are talking about Donnie being married to his cousin. Not that I think Jason Segel is into incest, or anything like that. But just like the weirdness of it, I was like, oh, I could see him doing this. I don't know. I'm trying to picture it and I don't know if see I'm not familiar with his work like I, mainly know him from how I met your mother. I can't recall any film work that I've seen him in. So that's I think why I maybe I'm having a hard time picturing him and not rule. Definitely is if all knew him from time, met your mother. I never would have thought of him for this role. Okay. So those are my picks. I see that you probably weren't in agreement with any of them. But that's cool. Well, Robert Pattinson like I think is hilarious. I mean, I've seen some of his work, and I don't think that he's a bad actor. I think he's certainly better than than the twilight material, obviously. So my opinion of him is not based on twilight. Let's put it that way, because I have seen enough of his were to I think have like a judgment. Call about him. I don't see what I think other people see in him in terms of his work. Like I said, I don't think he's about actor. I just feel like people overestimate his talent interesting. But again, I definitely can't see him as Jordan Belfort. But like I said, I, I don't know your first pick either. Yeah. Simon hell what's named Simon Helberg? Okay. Yeah. I could see him maybe as that character. I'm sure that actor Simon Helberg would have loved to have been in this. I bet good to work with Scorsese, of course. Okay. So my picks up so sorry before we do that. I know sorry. Sorry. I just I think this is probably a good times, take a quick break. Women's entrepreneurship and I'll Berta.

"Chris L Berta from Principia met. Chris is not your everyday. Okay. Well management expert. He's got a different approach one that I think you should listen to okay? So people like me, who are still working, but our past what some consider retirement age. What do we do? Well, Frank, I think everything starts the commitment, you have to make a commitment to security to make a commitment to preserve at least some of what you worked so hard to save up even working for forty fifty years. Some folks that we're seeing will be an actual retirement longer than they were in the workforce, so they retire, and they had this pile of money this nest egg, this IRA, and that's supposed to then supplement their income for the rest of their life, and they don't know if they're going to die at eighty three or one hundred six we have no idea there has to be an unequivocal commitment to preserving those funds to making those funds last as long as they do which does not mean they need to run out the door. And by the first newly that's got a bonus. And some guy put a good sales job autumn, another confused, and don't know what they, but it also doesn't mean that they should just leave everything in the stock market and basically gamble for the next twenty thirty years. There is a compromise between those two we've perfected over the last ten fifteen. Years, and most people deserve to see a real methodical difference in how the money is handled and how it's dispersed back to them. Right. Chris, we don't have time to go to everything right now. But coming up, he's going to be a brand new Chris Berta show here on WJR. Wanna talk about that a little bit. Let's go Frank. I'm really excited to be teaming up with you to, to present Michigan.
