"Pincher. Creek. But but the second piece is, how do you store that energy? And Battery technologies have improved dramatically. But. They require rare earths then have their own environmental impact. Oh Yeah. People assume that if I drive a E. V. and electric vehicle that I'm being greener than green but if you look at you know how lithium. And other cobalt. Yeah. How all of that's mind that also leaves a tremendous environmental impact from the mining activity for those rare earths and and human rights I think I might add especially coming a lot of that stuff comes out of Africa. So. Yeah I think to build on we you're saying. I the the thing that I always tried to help people understand that is frustrating to me that I actually really loved it. This documentary that came out earlier this year, the Mike Moore's one I don't remember the to remember the title title. Recall. I really appreciated that the the narrative was considered the whole life cycle like if we're gonNA talk about energy like just because it produces clean energy right now you know that it's wind and solar. Where did you source those materials where? Are they coming out of out of where you putting them when they're done and I think that that is an important conversation to further on if I might add what do you think about that? Well, I think I think the premises correct we have to look at. The the overall life cycle right and things that we think are good are not always good sure or not as good as we think they are. Right. But. Another area that you know we're this trump some. Some and technology is. A is in extraction of hydrogen. Okay tell me about that. Well, move a little bit closer to the soul if you. If you if you look at the possibilities for hydrogen. And hydrogen fuel cells. If you use a hydrogen fuel cell to power your vehicle, the only emission that comes out of it is. Water humidity. It's right water. And that that has some interesting possibilities and they're. Clever, sausages they're on the idea that we can put. We can put electricity in the ground and through a process of trials we can. We can break the chemical bond between hydrogen and and the carbons. And recovered the hydrogen leaves the carbon in the ground right? Wouldn't that be an amazing thing? Yeah and So. So the so this is another area where. It would be remarkable. To create. The public policy. That would be required to establish hydrogen fuel stations across the country. And, it's not impossible I. mean it took one hundred years for us to build the infrastructure to us. You know gasoline and diesel across the country. It won't take one hundred years to develop the infrastructure for hydrogen if that's the direction that we go a but. It will take some time. but the technology has tremendous possibility and I think probably is better than the idea of setting up. Stations charging stations across country right how how have you maintained such a cool head through all this a lot of the subjects we've already talked about trigger people so quickly. How you especially being in politics like you must deal with such emotional emotionally chart subjects. How do you maintain that level headed objectiveness in your thinking? I. Watched a lot of Star Trek when I was a kid. I was always. I was always impressed with Mr Spock. So Mr, spock would always look at the data you know emotion would never come into. His equation as to what was right and what was wrong. Sure. So. Gene Roddenberry and in many ways was a great optimistic future. If if you looked at, you know the things that he talked about the social issues, the technical issues. I mean do we have? teleportation now? No but. I mean, three D. Printing is about as close as we might get already. Amazing. And so as a futurist, he was very optimistic about the future and I think it's a sense of optimism that I have. That allows me to look at things objectively say you know what? Let's? Put the emotions aside we need to acknowledge them, I think it's important that we acknowledge that people have strong feelings about the environment that people have strong feelings about first nations. Rights in the we have strong feelings about. About Energy and we acknowledged those things and then we say, okay. Now let's sit down and talk about solutions. Let's not be in the business of just. Winning an argument, but to try and solve a problem right, I'm interested in solving problems now, just doing winning an argument. What needs to change to bring more people to the table to want to do that to want to actually have a conversation to figure out the future instead of just trying to to win. The. United States. Partisanship has gotten so strong. I mean. A couple of senators that I knew, Orrin Hatch was a senator from. From Utah. Okay he was a good friend of Ted Kennedy. So. One's a Republican one's a Democrat, but they did a lot of bipartisan stuff to get. They were friends. And the the mere fact that you would fraternize with somebody from another party you know might upset your applecart and trying to get nominated for for your own party in your own state now. It's not as bad in candidates. It's it's not like it used to be but. But I think in Canada we still have. More people. That are interested in. Solving problem than just winning an argument I've been to I've had the good fortune. You know in my in my life to travel it every province and territory of Canada socal I've met people from all political stripes from. From from the Bloc Quebecois to. Federal Conservatives Liberals and. In, the provinces and territories and Green Party members. I want to tell Canadians. You should be very pleased that that so many smart people get elected my. Parties of all political stripes. Canadians. Really don't know that much about about. The characteristics of. Of the people that they elect other than what they read through the media if they met them in person I bet you'd like them. That's the reality interesting and I bet you. If you ask them, they are all interested in solving problems, not just winning arguments interesting, and so we just need to continue that kind of dialogue but this is what think-tanks can do this is. A group like Canada West Foundation been doing for fifty years is being safe place for people with different opinions to acknowledge the feelings of other parties.

"And what about the? What about the job losses? Well the job losses is terrible. It would be Very unfortunate all those jobs lost by the government should try to find a way to get those workers in London and elsewhere to find other jobs in other areas.

Tell Vegan not very proud with my former student because he's my former student in my classroom. That the you've just stood out but just like Young before him and other ministers just doesn't have the courage to put an end to steal in the courage to tell Justin Trudeau in the members of the government that this should be over in Canada should have done like many other countries have done suspend the export of arms the Saudi Arabia even end the exports to to the country that is the worst country in the world when it comes to human rights.

Those words echoed in the NASA Control Room as the third planned moon landing quickly turned into a rescue mission an oxygen tank had exploded aboard Apollo Thirteen and there was a rush to get the spacecraft and its astronauts back to Earth safely. That's where Bin Atkin and his colleagues came in NASA contacted the University of Toronto Aerospace Team for important advice about pressure in the space craft and with only six hours to solve the problem. The team got it right back in two thousand ten Mr Oetken and some of his team members received a pioneer award at the Canadian. Air and Space Museum recognizing the role in the rescue mission. He spoke with Carol at that time. And here is part of that conversation. My personal reaction when I heard those words and learned that there had been a serious explosion. That was Making much of the oxygen supply and the electrical supply unavailable for the rest of the voyage. My thought was well. It's over doors. Poor guys are done for and you didn't think there was any hope that they could get out of that situation. It just didn't occur to me that they could find a solution as cleverly as they did. Do you remember when when you were contacted and your people that you have you know. University of Toronto. Were contacted to get some help for that. Oh I remember that. Very clearly. Carol when you and the other scientists from the University of Toronto when you saw those three American astronauts safe waving for the cameras. How did you feel how would you? How would you feel if you thought that you help them get back? And of course we didn't know until they splashed down the next day that it was going to work or not.

"The army end and the blockades what is the prime minister. Do in the face of those demands. Well a lot of these are conservative. Leadership hopeful sutter saying. Here's what I would do. If I was prime minister this was Maryland. Gladue who said the military should be brought in Peter Mackay tweeted that he was happy that a couple of L. Burton's who took down rail blockade in Alberta were able to do more in an afternoon with a pickup truck. Then true do in four years. He was clearly criticized for that for supporting vigilante. In that tweet he did He didn't say it was put it back up and he did but he did say it was utter nonsense and that the individuals did clear the tracks for being good citizens and then there are also being called terrorists by conservative leadership. Hopeful Erin O'Toole Saying it was terrorism now the Conservatives. What they're doing here. This argument is for an immediate intervention. Because the economy's taking hit there's propane shortages there's temporary layoffs millions of dollars being lost each day because aren't getting to market container. Ships are piling up at ports. But there is that concern that with police intervention it could provoke allergic crisis Because of the tensions so of course as you know what we're hearing from Susan. This is a lot of rhetoric and ramping up. But maybe they're tapping in to what Canadians are feeling. They're feeling a bit frustrated. Because of all of these issues I just talked about. Maybe they're a laid off worker and Canadians are thinking that this is going on too long. Recent polls are showing this. I can't agree more. Also just point out that the the it is very interesting. We just spent a number of minutes speaking about the krona virus and the fears that around the crow virus and wound. How the economy is used as the primary fear in which to make really coney decisions potentially notice how indigenous peoples are put in the same situation. They're seen as a threat to the economy. Therefore they must be dealt with aggressively notice how the rhetoric is the same. You know what I've noticed all this mad I wrote about this last week and I've really noticed throughout the first two months of this year. How no one is calling for. Smaller government We all expect the government to solve a lot of problems this year Nobody's saying that the private sector or the markets are going to sort this all out which I think is going to be interesting when it comes to the conservative leadership race we we are just going through a state right now in this country where we want the government meddling in our lives a lot And we're we keep calling for the government to fix every problem. We just talk just briefly in the last couple of minutes that we have but that conservative leadership raised. Some of the candidates are saying Hannah that's They would like to force an election as early as October is. That is that going to happen. He said nervously realistically. Don't expect to head out on the campaign trail you guys Here's the reason why so it's McKay O'Toole and gladue Who are saying that. Canadians need an election as early as October. Yes I did say this October But remember the next leader elected by the conservative government. These hopefuls are speaking to membership so that membership is about one hundred eighty thousand Canadians. They're trying to rile them up to get some votes. Because these members believe that true is not doing a good job. They're clearly supporting the conservative. But here's some other facts They don't have the votes in the House of Commons to bring down the liberals alone they would need to secure support from the Bloc Quebecois the MVP. That is not going to happen because the end EP does not have the money for another election campaign. The soon not only. That leader meeting told me when I did my article. That don't rely on them to help. And then also let's remember the Bloc Quebecois Net thirty two seats. This is the performance. They've had in quite a few elections. They're enjoying this position of power and they're not ready to head back to the polls to give no reason to cancel our plans for October. Then well I'm GONNA keep those dates open. Just I'm I'm kidding. I hope I would. It reminds me of Actually there are so many parallels to wear the liberals were in two thousand and eight. They were just passed another losing election. They were working on their second leader. Michael Ignatieff in that case and they were under the impression that rightly or wrongly that Canadians hated Steven Harper's government as much as they did at which was Hannah was alluding to I I and will remember the Liberals did Michael did not long after he became leaders. Start talking about taking the government down to and never did you concerned at all. Is there the interest in remaining seconds? We have the possibility that This could happen come fall. Why don't I I think? Fear is We've been talking about feared to the theme of the episode. And I think that right now. The conservative leadership hopefuls are really stoking fear. The problem with fear is that fear is not a growth vote like it's on a long-term growth mode it might be a reactionary vote and. I think that they're speaking mostly to the base and that kind of base doesn't have a long term Reach within keen-sighted but it could be could work in the short term. Good to speak with you.

"Take this and go into the House of Commons. We got everyone coming back on Monday. What did the Conservatives now need to do with all that's going on with the leadership race and folk turn to the focus in the House of Commons leaning to fulfil their role as the official opposition Mister Trudeau Trudeau has set out today. a guiding light of whatever he's talked about it yesterday compromise and consultation and sunshine China blue skies. I think it was a wash. Rinse repeat of his two thousand fifteen caucus Message before the house comes. Got Back to work after the last election It'll it'll it'll remain to be seen whether he actually follows through on that Make sure that Piece of legislation or piece of policy. Also that are trying to be put through the comments that the Conservatives may have legitimate gripes against that they hold it up with every tool in the in the opposition toolbox box in a in a minority parliament and And get through really truly. Just get through to the end of June when a new leader emerges Don't don't don't break anything. Don't break anything. You breakage. Bought it true that Jeff. So we have the leadership race with the Conservatives Neal's neal's At vices to just stay the course until June twenty-seventh what do the liberals now have to do as government Coming into this Correct that's a good rule to follow for all all government activity. I guess so coming into this week so it's back to school season And I think members from all caucuses got a little taste of things in December but I would just call that a little taste of things that was a a flash in the PAN for a a couple of days. Everybody was still very fresh off the election. So now we're into the real now we're into the real school year And so a couple of things one they we have a throne speech at Sylvia's be passed. That confidence vote. We all seem to sort of forgotten about it but we'll be I believe probably priority number one. They have to finish debate on that before they can move on much else And I think it just begs the question. We all have a presumed outcome The block of made their friendly noises But that was also almost two months ago and so I'm just curious to see whether that debate takes a weird turn Or whether it just continues and finishes as expected so people can get on other issues. The legislative docket is not going to be happy. Can't be happy for for reasons. I think our listeners understand which is if you put a bill on the table you lose control of it so you better have your ducks in a row in terms of WHO's going to support it or you're pretty darn close with some amendments that you might make once it's on the table but you need to know that a bill isn't just going to take on a life of its own and then pass it a form that you don't like as the government because it it got hijacked by other people's interests So legislatively. You'RE GONNA see very few which means house won't have a whole lot of debate. I don't think actually I think they're going to be quite thin on those things. I'm curious whether there'll be more recesses and stuff which people might actually get behind wind because the other thing. That minority parliament does put butts in seats and And just you know our listeners. Speaking from some experience and working in the in the beginning minority thirty years and then -tario serving cabinet ministers in those capacities. I had a boss WHO's ministerial office was five blocks away from Queens Park and that he didn't set foot in Senate for a year and a half except after seven PM. Because we simply could not do a stakeholder meeting we couldn't do we can sign. Correspondence couldn't brief the minister on on subjects. Unless it was coffee shop nearby that you guys could meet. It was in the lot it was in the line of the legislature Or if we were lucky and I know West blocks is a little short on these things that meeting room nearby so members and ministers are going to have to get a new way of operating that they may not be used to after a term my majority government. I think that applies opposition members as well because they got to be in the seats to and for ministers. It's a little bit more difficult because ministers have obviously additional duties in a regular member And when you're in a minority and you need to make sure that the all this is coming from a place where you can't have any websites you can't lose emotion. You can't have a bill. Bill voted down at bare minimum. It's just embarrassing. And you'll be you'll be criticized rightly for it for days or weeks to come absolutely so so you can't make that mistake because I mistaken either just embarrassing best-case scenario worst-case scenario can drop the government I think that's where the conservatives coming and trying to make sure that they're disciplined enough to actually actually accidentally caused the fall of the government. Same for the new Democrats or anybody else for that matter but this is a numbers game at the end of the day. It means that there will always have to be you just one more liberal member within fifty meters of the Chamber at any given time than there are opposition someone who watches it at allow me to figure out a WHO's who in the House of Commons because we'll see a lot more cam. I WANNA get your take. What is the new Democrats have to do coming in? Starting Monday I visited Democrats. It's one one of the big things it's going to be cutting through the din right now because being the fourth party it's trying to make. How do you stand out in the agenda because obviously the the conservative leadership race taking up a lot of the debate a lot of the area now in the room Nafta two point will become four. Parliamentary government's said they're going to do the ways and means motion on Monday in Jerusalem. The bill on Wednesday so that'll be relatively consequential in that. Debate comes forward. So what do you do to try to cut through and still try to advance your goals and we've got a good clue that yesterday The MVP DP announced they're going to be bringing forward a bill on national farm Macaire renounced stats going. Outside doesn't matter the point is that you're putting you're putting it on the agenda and they have a private member's spot in the first fifteen it'll come up right away and that will that will help push the trial would get their way through this. I think what's going to be interesting for them. How Oh you stay disciplined your own message what you WanNa do not get caught up when everything also tap? I think that's one of the hard things in a minority because things do just go sideways some things do get out of hand and it just part of the nature of the beast and I think Jeff's point about counting counting heads and making sure people butts in seats. I personally what I expect to see happen. I expect the government to be more aggressive at this point because they know they've got six months where the Conservatives are really gonNA wait not to bring down the government. We saw this with Mr Match. He became leader of in the last minority. Where the the Liberals put for this beautiful approach of we're GonNa vote against you just not enough butts in the seats to actually take you down? And and that spawned one of the greatest peace political satire in in history in my view of Rick Mercer bringing full Baptist choir singing back debt backing down and loving it. It was but that's what it was like. We're going to oppose you but not so far as to risk ourselves and when you tell the butts and seats piece that also one of my favorite moments in the house Back in two thousand nine One day one day in a house we notice that the Liberals had very few members actually in the House so pat Martin at the time raised raised up in the house and moved a motion to formally make Jack late and literally official opposition for the day and it nearly passed because the liberals were sent scrambling back into the room to stop it right but the fact is stuff like this can happen now as you kinda have to be on your toes and be well organized and yeah. If if you're if you're in DP and your position you have more power in that sense but you have to be dishes and how you use it. Yeah and some silly fun too. Who I think is what your example just highlights there will be those those silly fun moments and there will be the We're actually trying to put you over Put you over on something that you don't want to talk for both Mr Mr Blanchette it's continuing the momentum that they got in the in the election You know if we you can cast our minds back to the end of August. People were predicting the end EP. Getting zero seats and through the sheer power of Mr Personality which nobody had seen up until the election. Actually I don't think we'd see during the leadership but disappeared shortly thereafter. He whether he brought the party back from the brink of destruction. Or Not that I that I. That's probably too strong a phrase but again Mr Blanchette as well he You know the Bloc Quebecois always essentially gone and through a variety of whatever reasons as a some of it being his personality They became the third party and And for the Liberals going into this next Next section of this parliament arledge. He's caucus management It's been Eight years majority for for the Conservatives for for the Liberals There's a certain Lackadaisical equalness if I can say that of worrying about the what goes on in the House of Commons and what goes on your own caucus when there's a majority and there's no real fear of of losing anything anything Getting new MP's and new ministers accustomed and all the MP's and the minister oldness sorry experienced in peace and experienced ministers there's back into the mindset of every day counts. When you wake up in the morning you have to have your head on and and come to the House of Commons because there is the work work of governing to do which is maintaining an Blah with block? I think we need to keep very conscious. wiki pointed them as a wildcard. This whole setup. What they're gonNA do legislatively is going to be for me is going to be fascinating because naturally with to make someone who would oppose this Nafta bill coming up yet? Francois go formula goes where he said. Don't don't you dare you back off right and see so. They've always taken the approach while we follow the National Assembly. Well if the national do the buck the trend here do they. Not I think this to me is a real wild card. This whole thing which really is going to make it interesting to see how this how this parliament actually survives I was involved in a podcast yesterday with Another partisan group and the serve on the panel said. He was putting money on the next election. Being made you you know what was the block and how they operate I can see it because they're the ones who least want to go to an election have the the most to lose because they have the lease organization lease ability and frankly they're happy where they are and they have most wiggle room to actually make it happen because they the there are so many me thinks they can vote on that are very inconsequential to their voters. Just have to see. I'm looking forward to the mall coming back. I'm actually looking forward to hearing from all again. 'cause it's been quiet Royat. I mean just seeing the prime minister out and all that kind of stuff. So it'll be nice to see sheer in saying and launched in May everyone back in the House of Commons so that'll be exciting and learning all the new. MP's on a permanent basis..
"bloc quebecois" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"But I Next week Canada's parliament will reconvene for its first session. Since October's election Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party is still dylan control but in a minority government with smaller parties back in two thousand fifteen after winning a thumping parliamentary majority. Mr Trudeau declared that the new liberal era had begun Etienne spoken you want a government with a vision and in the gender for this country. That is it's positive and then vicious and hopeful for years later he sounded much the same and they voted in favor of a progressive agenda. And I'm strong action on climate change but October's election. His party won a million fewer votes and won no seats in the the western provinces of Alberta and Scotch on the victory speeches may have sounded similar but in his second term. It seems Mr Trudeau May Not Justin Trudeau had struggled to get reelected in part because He had attempted to try to change the world in fact at one point in his twitter bio read changing the world. A little bit every day. John I've isn't has reported on Mr does fortunes for the economist and I think that the electric really wanted them. Rather than to change changed the world. They wanted to an agenda. It was a little bit less planetary in scope. It was made worse by the fact that that his own blunders seemed to make him look like a hypocrite particularly Louis repeatedly winning black face when he was younger. This during the election is a bit of a bombshell. This is something that I deeply deeply. Eh regret darkening. Your face Regardless of the context or the circumstances is always unacceptable all because of the racist history of black face and then mainly the scandal which was reverberating in early. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred eighty demoted. It is justice minister after she refused to help a Quebec based construction company. Settle a criminal case and avoid prosecution over allegations of bribery and Libya in this has been a tough few weeks Canadians. Expect deserve to have faith in their institutions and the people who act within them well. First of all the justice does minister was a woman secondly she was an indigenous woman. And these issues that he'd been pontificating on he was particularly tarnished in the eyes of progressive voters. Well that's that's not to say though that he hadn't Taken on some big causes at home no I think that the liberal government was very proud of its record in the first four years. There were some pretty transformative changes the legalization of pot being one of them a very generous Gerald benefit allowance that lifted many people out of poverty. Eighty today nine out of ten families have more money in their pockets for things like new skates or hockey camp. The now helps more than six million children children and their families and it's helped lift hundreds of thousands of kids out of poverty since its inception in twenty sixteen. They managed to enhance the kind of pension implant They established a a national price on carbon and probably most crucially for the Canadian economy. The renegotiated a new free trade agreement with the trump administration that while it made some concessions that did not give away the farm. It was a pretty good result for Canada. Well what what's striking about. The the the election result though is how much the west of the country didn't seem to support him yes so it was locked out of the provinces of Alberta and to schedule No. MP's no representation. and Ah a rising feeling that some of these attempts to change the world particularly on climate change were being done at the expense of the resort producing regions of the country. So there's there's clearly in the second minded things that Trudeau needs to address. And he has started trying to address them. Address them in a in a change of tone or more concretely in policy. Well he he came back from Christmas vacation in Costa Rica. He had adopted a salt and pepper stubble which was designed. I think to make him look a little bit more. Seasoned I think that was symbolic and deliberately symbolic because I think this is a new low key approach. I think that they felt that while. They made some transformative changes in their last Monday. They didn't really get a lot of credit for that. As we saw in the election result there were far too many times editor was picture championing. Latest 'cause the latest woke because the critics would claim while not really talking about some of the things that he was actually doing. And what do you think of the big issues in his inbox. Now that he has this thin majority majority that the government gave it speech from the throne just before Christmas. The main th- broad themes will continue to be support for the middle class. The short themselves without an broad-based tax cut. That came before Christmas. The other major themes from the term we're going to continue. Reconciliation with indigenous communities continued attempts at ensuring the health and safety of Canadian through things like the introduction of a national drug benefit plan but the middle class has permeated just about everything they've done they've even appointed a minister for the middle class. No the term was ridiculed. And it's really a a junior finance minister role but clearly you. There's a feeling that if they can push the average Canadian increase their earnings lift people below the mode of poverty that this is a winning winning formula and they should be concentrating on this rather than on some of the more identity politics issues which dominated the first term. And so what. What will he be kind of working against? Does he tries to do this. And and keep all of these these various constituencies happy. The obvious one is. This is now a minority parliament. The liberal government needs the support of at least one other of the major parties the MVP the left of center and EP the Bloc Quebecois separatist party. I don't think we can expect an election anytime soon. The MVP urban strapped for cash. They're not likely to want to force an election. The bloc is quite happy as long as it's issues concerning quebecer addressed the other constraints obviously the the problems on the prairies with Scott. Actually no Berta have to be addressed. The one or the other thing that comes to mind is there are fiscal pressures. This is a government that has spent a lot of money in the first four years and his first platform. It said they would be back in balanced by two thousand nineteen in fact. This year's deficit is likely to be somewhere in the region of twenty six billion dollars Canadian as bill more. No the finance minister said when he met with reporters after he gave a fiscal update just before Christmas. He said nobody said it was going to be easy. And it's not so so all of this sort of Taken together how. How do you expect this? The second term to play apple with both with the the the fiscal and political constraints the The prime prime minister nowadays expected to be taken a little more seriously with his pepper beard. How how do you think this will come together all told I think it largely depends on who the conservatives choose news as their next leader Andrew share the former leader has been ousted and they're going to be contested? Too late June remains to be seen whether he wants to go for another election. I think there are a large question marks about that whether he wants if this is the minority that goes for more than two years. He may feel at that point that he's done enough and he's going to exit stays left but let's assume that he stayed around. There are a number of options for the Conservatives. I think it depends which one the membership picks. The Trudeau looks at the next election. It's not clear yet all of the potential candidates. But there is a female Rona Ambrose who was the interim leader of the conservative before chose there permanently. I think Mr Trudeau. It's very hard to run against a woman leader if however the conservative choose a leader who is small c conservative on social issues. WHO's the loss leader? They're not plays into truth. Hans they membership base will want a leader who is perhaps skeptical of same sex marriage who has for life with these credentials. That's why lost the last election partly his views on climate changes. Well I think the Conservative Party has to have a much more enlightened view. You've who is trying to appeal to and if it does pick a leader who can win votes in the largest provinces of Quebec Ontario then Trudeau may be in trouble Nixon. Sean thank you very much for joining.

"Internally this is being seen far from being a demotion this'll be seen as a very important job indeed well Thomas for the benefit of non-canadian listeners. What does an intergovernmental the governmental affairs minister do all day it does sound terrifically tedious Christy? Phelan Andrew I think. What will it'll be happening in that role is that if you look at provinces in the Midwest particularly Alberta Saskatchewan they didn't return a single liberal? MP The two parliaments they had largely a conservative sort of wave of of elections there so what she will be trying to do and this is sort of a lot of architects really. I think as much as anything else but I think you know. The narrative from the election was that Trudeau had sort of lost control of Alberta. which is the oil making heartland for example in Canada and other areas to who disagreed with his ideas on immigration for example and also his general sense of trustworthiness business? I think I think what this will mean intergovernmental affairs for Christa. Freeland is that you know. She will really be the bridge between Ottawa and those areas looking Quebec as well. That really voted in a way that you know really hamstrings Trudeau in lots of ways in terms of his agenda for for government. I think if you look elsewhere the cabinet. There are lots of Quebec wine piece that at now in the in the cabinet as well. I think that is intentional. To show Quebec that voted in large numbers for the Bloc Quebecois which before the election wasn't even a fully registered party given supported dwindle so much over the past few years years. It's not the third largest block on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. So there's a lot of optics play here but I think for free land. It will be a very important role as the years. Go on because Trudeau will now have to show. He's conciliator as much as someone leading the way. Well thank you Thomas. Now having spoken to a non-canadian in Canada. Let's let's talk now to a Canadian in Non Canada he in the studio in London is Monaco twenty-four Daniel Beach with a look at how Canada's newspapers Dealing with all this Dan. We've which one are we starting. Let's look at the National Post where the story is as Thomas suggested Christa freeland right in the center center of paper there A story about Freeland promising to listen hard as as as a quote. She will have a very difficult job but I think if anyone one is the face of trying to mend bridges and bring Canadians together. She's probably the safest bet she will. Literally maybe now Trudeau's right hand person. had a very hard portfolio before and A lot of the talk as well about Whether this was a demotion or not as Tomasz Moss suggested and whether she was given that deputy prime minister role to sweeten the deal a little bit. But I think It's A. It's a hard post for her. But it's it's definitely the one that all the papers are talking about I think it really does matter yesterday. The national poses Before the cabinet was announced says It it doesn't really matter who's in the cabinet because Trudeau has a very hard job ahead if we look at the other big papers. I've chosen three from Toronto. Here the National Post the Toronto Star in the Global Mail apologies to listeners from different regions of the country but Toronto is the center of the universe as you know How serious the nation of the western provinces to which you have just contributed I is actually getting. I mean is there is the actual secession sentiment looking in Alberta and Saskatchewan Yeah there is. I mean there is a very small movement to actually Leave the country but You know more people talking about. How do we get the economy economy going again? How do we get the oil industry going again and a lot of people still think That the West has been alienated. There is a new post A special representative presentative to the prairies. That was announced yesterday but A lot of people are a little upset about who was named as environment minister specifically who was not And this is seen as the prime minister actually caving to the West for them to get their way a little bit Someone who used to be the head of of The Greenpeace arm in Quebec Who the Andrew Scheer? The opposition leader called an activist has been named As Heritage Minister Nantz wants environment minister. There was a lot of concern because people in Quebec are very much against the oil sands. So there's that sort of that East West Clash Still I. I mean in in general. Is there a sense to you. Think of being willing to give Trudeau's new cabinet the benefit of an amount of doubt because obviously obviously if you govern I as the leader of a majority and then you return to offices the leader of a minority government. It's odd to avoid being seen as a somewhat diminished figure. That's true but I think the the image projected here is that it's time to play the adult. Put the sort of the the costumes aside and really start to govern so there are a lot of safe bats in this cabinet a lot of Same faces that we've seen in past like Marc Garneau and Bill Maher. No the people like that and this is a time where a trudeau really needs to focus on getting acting on his agenda. So there's a bit out of a serious face to this and that's the big part of the conversation. Today is the popular sentiment. Do you think summed up by that quite bracing cartoon which is on the Front of one edition of the national posted to the vet one. Don't don't F it up. That's that's basically what Troodos up against and that's all the members members of his cabinet. They're shouting at him as he stands on the other side of the room alienated but I think Again this is a government where Trudeau needs is to focus on national unity and the environment. That was the big thing out of the election and on the National Unity Front Kirsty. Freeland is now the face of that and really the focus. hocus Daniel Budge. Thank you for joining us.

It's difficult to see where that support would come from is it not a cause so as you said Sandy P not interested Green Party in no way aligned people's Party of Canada may not even win one seat so we'll see so that leaves the Bloc Quebecois and we saw a speech from Andrew Scheer this week in Quebec that was very much trying to appeal to soft nationalist easily be people that you know might think about sovereignty but are willing to think about other things and could be pulled toward some conservative ideas trying to say you can look after things in your own house and I will empower you to do that which to me is not only an opening too soft nationalists to vote for him but is also an opening to the block habit qua- to say if we it to a point where we need your help to survive confidence votes here are some things that we're willing to do to get that the problem with that though is the closest we God to any sort of coalition in recent history would be back in two thousand and eight the Conservatives had formed government they put on the table you know sort of a regular all economic update where they had plans to cut spending to sell off some assets to get rid of the provoked subsidy that that wasn't a place for parties for every vote they got they got a buck ninety five back in return so a bunch of things in there that really upset the opposition parties the Liberals the MVP and the block so that liberals and the MVP decided will were GonNa try and try and stop this from happening they got together and formed that coalition that formal agreement to try and toss the conservative overboard but because they didn't have enough numbers they also asked the Bloc Quebecois to join sort of as a side dance partner just the you get the right numbers to force that confidence vote but because Stephanie O. who was of course the liberal leader at the time had said in the election I'm not going to form a coalition and because the Bloc Quebecois was at the table which outraged conservatives Stephen Harper sort of destroyed all of that by calling this an agreement with the scary separatists and managed to convince the Governor General Mikhail John at the time to Perot Parliament which means end the parliamentary sitting prevent vote from happening in allow the Conservatives to regroup it was an insane time in Canadian politics and the coalition fell apart ultimately destroyed Steph NGOs career and is a lot of danger for the Conservatives or any party in trying to align themselves with the block in a formal or even informal way Why would image here uh-huh is it simply about wanting to make sure that they get attached to govern after the election because he does not strike me as a person who has at least nothing he said so far has has intimated that he's the kind of leader who would want to give the block any kind of opening yet no I agree with you and maybe the speech in Quebec was really about trying to get the votes of soft nationalists and less about reach out to the Bloc Quebecois but given that we don't see anyone else that would be naturally aligned with the Conservative Party they have to see thinking about that too if you're in a minority government situation and you don't WanNa go election in six months and Lord I don't WanNa go where do you want to do this again I dude allow that to happen you know I'm not advocating for one version of minority versus another I think if you're feeling like you just WanNa have government and elected officials.

Chapelle Andrews share says it would be his job as prime minister to assert the national interest in building pipeline through Quebec back what happens to voters in Quebec when they hear that well especially they they. They turned their back to the conservative. They don't want to take the risk of having a conservative government will impose them. Quebec pipeline same question about with Mister Scheer said about what about selling electricity from Quebec back to on -Tario so there's a lot of debate that if if this is open I think that will raise a lot of concern among voters and most voters say okay who is the the the best party who can defend our interests on that issue and this is I think part of the equation and just election so that's where the liberals are very clear on the are buying pop line. I think the transplanting everybody's don't understand the nationalization. If a pipeline in the twenty first century doesn't seem to be as as the policy of the day and and and that costs money and who's being attacked Bekker's or being old canes and bring for that so somebody should they ring to balance the wait a minute is is there a kind of a double standards encounter right. So what does that mean for. I mean who then it who's running in Quebec. Which Party does it benefit. The liberals are saying we're going to spend four and a half billion dollars on a pipeline. We have already and they the Conservatives are saying well. We might have two in the national interest have a pipeline in Quebec who benefits from that that kind of talk in this election campaign. I think the block is going to benefit from that and this is what we've seen today. In the in the last bowl the the block is ahead now among Francophone borders at the twenty nine percents I in many riding outside Montreal of the blocks and clearly dead there's no question of having a pipeline make daddy shook kind of a single issue of this campaign and I think that that will appeal to a lot of voters in Quebec. I think Mr logo and the member of his garment or were said not to talk about that to remind you really the quite in this campaign but I'm sure Mr Lugubrious. He's pleased to see that the block in a way will defend as he says it interesting awesome. That's part of that. Also the Green Party in Quebec is quite divided on Daddy Shoe Mr Green and one of his main candidate for years. I've said there's no question of a pipeline even on the new river so so it seems that there's a kind of a constant tune in term of the talks on a pipeline that I would say the bottom line is it can't be done unilaterally and the has to be done in collaboration with the National National Assembly the parties and more importantly they should avid support of the population gives me that there should be a referendum on that issue. I don't think so but it means that the voters will will certainly be questioned. We'll see I think they will be certainly one of the key issue is another party and leader Jagmeet Singh who has also also saying he will not interfere with Quebec on pipelines or I'm Bill twenty-one. He has been the most emphatically in this election about how provinces should have their own jurisdictions Nixon so why has that not improvements to sing an indie piece fortunes in Quebec because it's it's it's we're not at the time of Jack later to annoy even Thomas Mulcair. I think that Mr Sing represent a kind of tradition Indian DP where we are quebecers. I'm not sure the MVP now can will really represent Quebec voters in Quebec interests. I think that's that's the bit difficult but of course Mr. We're seeing as we know and it's very clear I think the the question of any religious sign in this campaign even Mr Sing is perceived as a a very decent man's very very decent leaders capable of changing with a good personality among Quebec voters but still the question of religion is is harming him. AM In in this campaign and because because he wears it because he wears a turban you think that his fortunes the bill twenty-one essentially the talk about the neutrality of the states and this legislation we can like it or not the question is the Local Government is surfing on this legislation and and he has the approval of the population on the Quebec and also outside of Quebec so that's raise a question about a kind of neutrality our institutions and that's I would say. It's not personally an issue for Mr Single. It's more I'll be representing about the place of religion in our political debates and I think that's an Nisha that it's always on the French it doesn't have any impact on on the individual rights or whatever it is when you work for a federal institution and you are in Tori who would decide essentially is individual right or when you work for the state to work for the collective interests so how'd you reconciling individual ride with collective interests and the fall mental question. I think beyond even Jagmeet Singh and the MVP represent the interests of Quebec are talking openly about how they would protect US interests all those things that matter great deal to quebeckers they'd still reject him because he was a trip and what does that say but not only that it just say they also that did the EP was efficient and defending Quebec interest with the oldest seat that they have in the past. I think people are questioning the efficiency of the MVP EP and voting in general for third party how third party can really be representative of the population the fact that the end EPS Mr Melkert Keep Becker as a tendency to vote for quebecers and they we can like it or not does the situation and also that I think this is his first election so so there's a question Europe Trough Quebecois is not going to be the government either so that argument that is a third party is not going to have power doesn't make sense. They are turning the Buckeye backlogged for their interests. No we depend if it's a minority government who has the balance of power. We have seen that before in Kenya and the election all Party or necessary and our the democracy. I don't think there's one more than other if I don't know if it's liberal who have were elected and the balance of power is and you have conservative as the opposition so he said the MVP is the block of the Green Party. It's a question now off the number of seats that your position would be if the minority government position needs the support supportive to other parties including the MVP and to block to get the legislation passed and seeing more complicated so this is our electoral system so we have to live with data and accept death the that's that's democracy all right.

He's pleased to see that the block in a way will defend as they said that Beck interesting awesome. That's part of that also the Green Party in Quebec is quite divided on Daddy Shoe Mr Green and one of his main candidate for years. I've said there's no question of a pipeline even on the new river so so it seems that there's a kind of a constant tune in term of the talks on a pipeline that I would say the bottom line is it can't be done unilaterally and the has to be done in collaboration with the National National Assembly the parties and more importantly they should avid support of the population gives me that there should be a referendum on that issue. I don't think so but it means that the voters will will certainly be questioned. We'll see I think they will be certainly one of the keys you. There's another party leader. Jagmeet Singh who has also also saying he will not interfere with Quebec on pipelines or I'm Bill twenty-one. He has been the most emphatic in this election about how provinces should have their own jurisdictions. Nixon so why has that not improvements to sing an indie piece fortunes in Quebec because it's it's it's we're not at the time of Jack later to annoy even Thomas Mulcair. I think that Mr Sing represent a kind of tradition Indian DP where we are quebecers. I'm not sure the MVP now can will really represent Quebec voters in Quebec interests. I think that's that's the bit difficult but of course Mr. We're seeing as we know and it's very clear I think the the question if any religious signing this campaign even Mr Sing is perceived as a a very decent man's very very decent leaders capable of changing with a good personality among Quebec voters but still the question of religion is is harming him. AM In in this campaign and because because he wears it because he wears a turban you think that his fortunes the bill twenty-one essentially the talk about the neutrality of the states and this legislation we can like it or not the question is the Local Government is surfing on this legislation and and he has the approval of the population on the Quebec and also outside of Quebec so that's raise a question about a kind of neutrality our institutions and that's I would say. It's not personally an issue for Mr Single. It's more I'll be representing about the place of religion in our political debates and I think that's an Nisha that it's always on the French it doesn't have any impact on on the individual rights or whatever it is when you work for a federal institution and you are in Tori who would decide essentially is individual right or when you work for the state to work for the collective interests so how'd you reconciling individual ride with collective interests and the formentera question I think beyond even Jagmeet Singh and the MVP represent the interests of Quebec are talking openly about how they would protect US interests all those things that matter great deal to quebeckers they'd still reject him because he was a trip and what does that say but don't only that just say they also that did the EP was efficient and defending Quebec interest would oldest seat that they have in the past. I think people are questioning the efficiency of the MVP EP and voting in general for third party how third party can really be representative of the population the fact that the end EPS Mr Melkert Keep Becker as a tendency to vote for quebecers and they we can like it or not does the situation and also that I think this is his first election so so there's a question Europe Trough Quebecois is not going to be the government either so that argument that is a third party is not going to have power doesn't make sense soothsayer turning the Buckeye backlogged for their interests. No we depend if it's a minority government who has the balance of power we have seen that before in Kenya and the election all Party or necessary and our or democracy. I don't think there's one more than another if I don't know if it's liberal who have were elected and the balance of power is and you have conservative as the opposition so he said the MVP is the block of the Green Party. It's a question now off the number of seats that your position would be if the minority government position needs the support supportive to other parties including the MVP and to block to to get legislation passed and seeing more complicated so this is our electoral system so we have to live with data and accept death the that's that's democracy all right. We'll leave it. There professor slash past. Thank you my pleasure. Gala Chapelle PAL is a professor of political science at Concordia University. We reached him in Montreal..
"bloc quebecois" Discussed on As It Happens from CBC Radio
"Very pleased to be with you. I was watching your face as he listened to that. What was going through your mind as you listen to yourself in the house and your first day in the new party? You know, it's bizarre that the only politician in the house want to fight for canyon consumers, and that's the reality. Is your colleagues your former conservative colleagues, laughing and jeering choosing? No. No. And just sort of rejecting you all together. Was that like for you. I'm not so surprised at the end because you know and the only one who wants to have that on the table for the NAFTA negotiation. Actually, that's what a President Trump is asking for the last six months in and it's so important for the future of this country. Twenty percent of our economy. It's depending on the US and the relationship between us and US. So if we want to deal, we must be able to put that on the table and at the end that would be good for canyon consumer. So I was disappointed at the end, but I didn't have a lot of expectation. Also, Donald Trump to peace Nepad on this issue. What I said to the prime minister and Rashida when they were saying we must stand up against the prison troubles and no, we must sit down with him. We must sit down in a real negotiation on NAFTA on free trade. You know they're putting at risk the automobile industry here, no tear you and all your industry just to protect nineteen thousand producers. On the spend management in this country, and now maybe we won't have deal. We must be a shame that mixed EKO and they were able to deal before us with us. So that's a very bad strategy that they're through government. They're doing right now with the l. of the conservative party of candles, your new party, the People's Party of Canada. I mean, just one question about that because I do remember I'm sure you do remember when coalition Avenir Quebec introduce their party and the acronym was calcul and how much derision there was going, you're going to be p p of Canada. It's PPC. PP up. See I'll the PPC, but you know the name, it's important for us at people's and we are a party that want to work for people in this country, and that was special interest group and the best example, it's that cartel of supreme management. But you eat talks about your former conservative party that you ran for the leadership of not very long ago. You them morally corrupt and you are now going to represent the people who are the people that you plan to represent Canadians that are fed up with traditional politics. Canadian new don't who doesn't believe in the petition. When you're saying something and the opposing the other day, Canadians that want to have real bold reform in this country for being a smarter and smarter government in a more freer and prosperous country. So our our platform is based on the four principles, individual freedom, personal restaurants, everyday respect, and fairness, and people believe in that there will come party. We can. Adult of support, not only from conservatives, but also from people who voted for other parties. I'm listening for that thing that's going to make me drop everything and folly wealth the door in join you. I mean, I was there when Bloc Quebecois started. Does that movement the Reform Party of Canada to powerful things and to be in the room. At those times, it was like a match was lit, a room, full of fuel..
