Dinesh Speaks With a Real, Live Canadian Trucker
"Guys, I've talked off and on in the podcast about the truckers convoy and the truckers protest both in Canada and in the United States, but I haven't had someone on who actually drives a truck who's been part of all this, and can sort of give a firsthand account of it, so I'm delighted to welcome Gerard de Los Santos, he is a Canadian trucker, although originally from South America. He got his license for trucking 1993, he's been a trucker since 1995, so really over 25 years. Hey Gerard, thanks for joining me. Am I right? It looks to me like you're in your truck. Good morning, thank you for having me. The program. Yes, I am in my truck. Coming back actually from Ottawa. It's going to be it has been quite some time being there and a longer than what we thought. And just halfway back home, I will say. You said you're in Saskatchewan. Where are you making your way toward? Where are you going? I am going to saskatoon. Then amundsen, and then my way down to Calgary. Okay, terrific. Now Gerard looks like you've been in Canada a long time. You've been driving a long time, but you're originally from South America. Say a word about your background. Yes. I am from Uruguay. I came to Canada on the 89 April 89, so it's going to be April now. It's going to be 33 years that I'm here. In 95, I got my license and started driving 93.

And do it to those, all this mandate was getting more difficult every day to deal with everything. And we decided to I decided to join the convoy and ask for freedom, basically. The only thing we were asking was freedom of choice. And to open the federal mandate to be able to cross the border to the United States.
"calgary" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Urbanist
"Hello, I'm Andrew Turk and you're listening to tall stories on monocle 24, brought to you by the team behind the urbanist, the show all about the cities we live in. Today we turn our attention to one of Canada's most distinctive sporting arenas. The saddle dome in Calgary. Completed in 1983, it's the home of the Calgary flames, NHL franchise, and was used for the ice dancing competitions at the 1988 winter Olympic Games. But until recently, his future looked uncertain, amid proposals for a new if less characterful sports arena in the city. Molecules Thomas Lewis explains more. The time has come that familiar bullhorn cry is perhaps one of Calgary's most famous sporting slogans. It's been a fixture of NHL games in Calgary since 1996, and is synonymous with the building in which it is broadcast every game day. At the storied saddle dome arena. The saddle dome is one of Calgary's most famous and recognizable buildings. It was opened in 1983 as a home to the city's NHL franchise, the Calgary flames, and also served as a venue for the 1988 winter Olympic Games, for which it hosted the Olympic ice dancing contests. And that great arena called the saddle dome, two American pairs are positioned third and fourth as they prepare for their long program. That's the final phase of that competition. When the saddle dome opened in 1983, Calgary was emerging from an uneasy period. The preceding years had seen the city's population fall for the very first time, driven by a downturn in the city's economy, which in turn and the eyes of many had dented the city's sense of itself more broadly. So when calgarians were allowed their first glimpse inside the saddle dome in 1983, few had seen anything like it in their city before. And despite news coverage of cost overruns in its construction, the saddle dome quickly became part of a fledgling sense of renewed urban pride. For 12 hours, thousands of people poured through the saddle domes too lounges and 33 private suites complete with bars and refrigerators. They watched peewee hockey and bought popcorn and soft drinks by the gallon in the broad concourse. The saddle dome is the first major project to be completed. If you haven't seen the building for yourself, a clue to what it looks like lies in its name. Its silhouette swoops down into a large curve before rising again to the other side of the building, like you guessed it, a saddle. And while the building's architect Barry Graham has said that the Ruth's famous shape and I quote just happened. It's hard not to see in it a nod to another defining part of Calgary sporting life. The annual Calgary stampede, which features one of the largest rodeos anywhere in the world. Graham has said that the roofs engineering is a little like a warped tennis racket, a grid of cables laid across the arena upon which the concrete slabs of the arena's roof were laid, allowing for its famous swoop. But in 2019, a deal was struck to demolish and replace the saddle dome, which even to some of the building's most Ardent admirers acknowledged had become somewhat tired and frayed around the edges over the years. Even Graham himself told the local press that he had reconciled, replacing the building he designed with something new. The goal for the saddle dome's replacement was to create a new event Serena that it was pledged to spur economic development in the city. But it was hard not to concede that the renderings of the proposed new design big and boxy and monochrome felt far less imaginative, less joyful, or whimsical than the saddle domes current form as fanciful as it still feels. That proposed design felt as though you could be anywhere, the saddle dome, as it is, feels unique in its form to the city of Calgary. But the plans to redevelop the saddle dome fell through late last year, mid rising costs in the wake of the financial pressures the coronavirus pandemic has brought to the city of Calgary, as the city's mayor, jiu-jitsu told me recently. We can see that globally supply chain disruption is creating increased cost on all kinds of things. Construction costs have gone up quite considerably because materials are no longer available the way they used to be. So I think what has happened in this particular case is through no fault of anyone's other than global pandemic that we could not control. And we could not foresee in 2019. The project became untenable. And there was a condition in that contract that said if either party doesn't execute on the construction contracts by December 31st, that you could walk away from the deal. And I believe it's by virtue of the economy that that deal is no longer in place. I think it's absolutely possible that we will still create an entertainment district that will include an event center and all 15 members of our council agree that this is something we should pursue. We just need to do it a little bit differently than we had envisioned two years ago. If those plans to replace the saddle dome do go ahead in the years to come, whatever replaces it should be as ambitious in its architecture as whimsical in its design and is exuberant in its silhouette as the current designs were when they were conceived, nearly 40 years ago. You could say that it's easy to build something new, much more difficult to build something that captures something far less tangible. And that is a city's sense of itself..

"I feel like we've answered this before, but it's a fun question to end ask grand rigs on. Let me guess. You're going to say Prague right out of the gate, aren't you? Prague's first and Stockholm is second. You and I have never been to Stockholm together. We've been there independently, but we have been to prom together, and that's why I was comfortable in guessing that you'd say Prague first. I can't imagine they're going to expand, but man, thinking of what it would be like to get a road trip and you've got to go to Prague for 5 days. I think free agents would sign there. I really do. What a city. Amazing. And Stockholm is Stockholm is Vancouver. It's very, very similar, beautiful place. All right, thank you, Andy, for ask grey and Riggs anything. A reminder to check out rain rig's social channels coming up soon for rapid fire presented by Ken tech footwear and orthotics, keeping you active on your feet for life, a little bit later this week.

Well, normally we end the podcast ray where I say ray, what do you got going on the rest of the week? But I know because we were a bit delayed in recording the podcast. And even though you were stellar again here in episode 22, bit distracted with the travel mayhem that you're dealing. So I don't know what thing yet. Not even a thing yet. The travel. So I'm in Toronto, I got the game tonight Thursday, flight of Pittsburgh tomorrow, pretty easy day. Not anymore. There's a storm coming apparently. So flight to Pittsburgh's canceled. So I'm getting these options. Would you like to go through dulles? In Washington, D.C.. Not exactly. Would you like to go to Chicago? That's always a disaster. We've always delayed. The third option that came in was how about Houston? Right on the way. I am not going to Houston. So what I'm doing is I'm going to go to, I'm going to go to Philly. Okay. I think I can get to Philly early. And if it doesn't work, then I can far as Philly to Pittsburgh. It's got to be 5 hours. Is it? I was going to say up on the train. I'm going to have some options. Anyway, I've got to get there for 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon and be ABC game. And so that's going to be the week right there. Well, please record some of it. At least.

He's a big dude. And you know, with our Boston pizza. Brad fits in nicely. For sure. And then look, that's going to be part of rapid fire. He doesn't always doing rapid fire, but he is going, we're not giving him an option. So I'm going to walk him into a Boston pizza and say, all right, I want to meet your pizza. 'cause that's my, that's my go to, right? Could you make me a meteor pizza? And see, you better be able to say yes. I mean, his father, Jim, is only owned the Boston pizza chain for the last 50 years. So we'll see. I hope they've kept Brad's hands out of the kitchen. Have you ever seen him handle a puck? No. 4 o'clock. So I forgot an I didn't get into Brandon until the summer of 88. So he had just finished his one and only season with the Brandon wheat kings in 1987, 88 big, lumbering defensemen who went on to play a fair bit of pro hockey. Nothing in the national hockey. They handful of American League games, mostly in the east coast, but we're going to have some fun with them. Today on the podcast because I'm sure he has endless stories. He joined us, I think it was in season one..

"Area for the duration of the extended term. To any occasion and answer every call. It has been an absolute privilege to run in this election and highlight all of the things that are important to you. It will now be an honor to serve as your mayor. Wow. And support you. I've seen it described the Calgary city councillors that were elected at the same day as you are newcomers to their roles in Calgary's city council. And I wondered if you thought that in a time of challenge and of pretty big changes, whether you thought that that was a positive thing to have lots of fresh faces, perhaps who were therefore a little more nimble in the way they undertake their work in city council. Or whether experience is in fact a good thing in a time like this. I would reflect on the fact that any time you face challenge, you also have immense opportunity. And so to have a council that is so new at this particular point in our history as a city, I think is actually a great benefit to us. We have many members of council who are challenging old ways of doing things. They are asking a lot of questions about things that we maybe had taken for granted as members of counsel serving previously. And I think it's really important to recognize that this council is more diverse than any other before. And we are representative of a lot of views and perspectives of calgarians that perhaps weren't at the table before. And people can see and hear themselves in this council. So I think it's an amazing opportunity. Now with that opportunity, we also have to practice some patience. It's always important to make sure that everyone on council understands the protocols and the processes and procedures that we have to use in decision making. It's also really important to make sure that the orientation sessions that we were having in early days are further augmented by history lessons, if you will, on some of the very important files that we need to move forward, whether it's public transit or revitalizing a district, we have to make sure all of our colleagues have the same history that those of us who have served in the past have on those important files. And you mentioned a little earlier the idea of a diversifying economy in Calgary. What does a diverse economy look like to you in real terms? And where do you think the areas are that you think that aren't tapped in the city yet that might be able to contribute to that idea of a diverse economy in the city? I can tell you that it is through engagement with a lot of our sectors that has allowed us to focus in on some areas that we can grow. So we've been having round tables with different folks from around the city. We have focused on things like housing, social equity. We've looked at arts and culture. We've looked at technology. So by listening to the voices of people that are active in those sectors, we can connect the dots and really hone in on where we have opportunity. We were just recognized as one of the top ten locations to live and work if you're a filmmaker. The film industry and the television industry really appreciate the crews that we have here as well as the facilities and the locations that are available. In addition to that, we have a lot of performers who call Calgary home in the last year alone. They did a 1000% more digital performances. I think we had more than 700 digital performances by our artists last year. So arts and culture is an important part of our economy that we sometimes hadn't focused on enough. When we talk about innovation and technology, I had mentioned previously that clean tech has really taken off in this city. Something that's important to note is that 51% of the clean tech startups in our city are first time founders. So these are folks that have never done this before. 28% of those people were born outside of Canada and 23% of those people are women. So it's important to see that diversifying our economy also leads to diversification in leadership. And that is a success story. I'm Kevin krauser, CEO and cofounder of Avatar innovations. We're corporate innovation partner that works inside oil and gas to unlock energy transition solutions for commercialization and scale. The reality is the world is going to be using hydrocarbons for quite some time. And the simplest and most economic means of for us to hit a net zero 2050 is going to be utilizing the multi trillions of dollars worth of energy infrastructure that is currently powering the world. So the model is large cap multinational oil companies place employees into the avatar program where they race across a curriculum and build energy transition solutions from within. And the best ones of those, we commercialize and scale. So avatar is really building the leaders and solutions the future needs to reach a net zero 2050. Calgary's Canada's energy capital and with recent changes in perception, Calgary is now Canada's energy transition capital. The reality is we have to use the infrastructure we have on the planet in energy to reach a net zero future, otherwise it's going to cost a fortune and take too long. So I'd say once there was a sort of mindset shift that the incumbent energy industry has to be a meaningful and powerful partner in the energy transition, this kind of lightbulb went on. Okay, well, how can we do this as quickly as possible? How can we do this as efficiently as possible? And the community mindedness of Calgary as well as I think being a very responsible global citizen recognizes that just being an oil and gas leader is good enough anymore. We have to be an energy transition later. I am Tim stopped. I am an executive adviser to the CEO of carbon over corporation. My background is in the energy business for over 30 years, mostly in the natural gas and natural gas liquids infrastructure and marketing businesses. However, the last four or 5 years I've transitioned into new markets for natural gas and natural gas liquids and new technologies. It's in that space that I was introduced to Mina zveri and the CEO of carbon over corporation. Mina came out of the creative destruction lab at the university of Calgary with an idea. An idea to convert greenhouse gases into valuable carbon nanofiber products. Carbon nanofibers are what you find in your bicycles, your babington rackets, in concrete, and in a number of other applications. Over 40 applications worldwide. These carbon nano fibers are typically made from mined products, carbon patented technology uses natural gas and carbon dioxide as inputs to produce carbon nanofibers. A very, very unique pathway that creates a circular use of gases that would typically either create additional greenhouse gases or vented into the atmosphere. Calgary is a great spot to be developing innovative technologies like carbon nova, the creative destruction lab is an incubator for new ideas and new technologies and with respect to carbon in particular. We have the skill sets here in Calgary to advance its technology, everything from financial capital to resources in terms of educated individuals and of course we have an environment economic.

"The first 100 days has been kind of a whirlwind for our entire council. It's been incredibly rewarding in many cases. We've done some very big things. We have made a commitment in our budget towards allocating land for an indigenous gathering place, which is a huge step. We have previously paid a lot of lip service to reconciliation, so I'm very happy to see that we are actually now taking some action. We declared a climate emergency, which puts us on the same path as many private sector companies in the energy sector. We are looking to join them in their pathways to net zero mission and we have tried our best to address some of the very serious issues in our city around people in positions of vulnerability. We are being incredibly intentional in creating more housing, providing better access to shelter and harm reduction opportunities. And from an economic perspective, we have heavily invested in our downtown to make it a complete community. And we are seeing a lot of success with the conversions from office vacancies to residential, and I'm also really happy that the clean tech sector and many other tech and innovation sectors are doing very well in our city. We've been recognized as one of the top 5 places for clean tech in North America. So we are moving along and moving forward. And where for you, Meg on deck to the opportunities for a city like Calgary lie, Calgary, as opposed to someone looking in is in quite an interesting position. The pandemic, of course, has brought its challenges, but also the sort of longer standings disruption to traditional revenue streams from the oil and gas sectors in the province of Alberta more broadly, for example. Where does Calgary stand at the moment in all of that in your mind? I really appreciate that question. And it's a question that has to do with the story of who we are. I think there's a stereotype around our city. There is a reputation that our city has that's actually not reflective of who we are. If you come to Calgary and you interact with people here, you'll see where we're very diverse, not only in terms of our demographics, but in terms of our perspectives on many things, our economy is diversifying and that's the narrative that we need to get out there. I think it's really important that the brand ambassadors for this city, including the city council, are demonstrating to the world that we are progressive that we are a city that is inclusive and welcoming. You should choose to come here to make a living and make a life. And I think we need to be telling the stories of how we're moving forward to be a center of energy transformation, how we're moving forward to create complete communities, how we have made a commitment to the climate by looking at electrifying our own fleet vehicles and all of these things that we are actively doing. And that story doesn't always get told. I think it's important to change the narrative and really talk about who we are. And I think to that end, we've got a strike really good partnerships with the social services sector and the business sector so that we're talking about how newcomers are welcomed into our city and how those newcomers are actually meeting with a lot of success here. So it's a combination of the different organizations that we work with coming together and jointly telling that same story. And your own background was in real estate in urban planning before you entered city politics as a counselor in 2017. It struck me as being somewhat unusual for the mayor of a big city to come to the job with that kind of experience. And I wondered if you could tell us how you feel that that's informed your work as mayor. So far and how you feel that it's a value to you. My journey to becoming mayor is a very interesting one and it started off quite innocently and accidentally. I volunteered on an aldermanic campaign, which was what the counselors were called back in the day. So in 2007, it was the first time I was ever really exposed to municipal politics. I hadn't really paid a lot of attention before then. And I started to understand what it is that the local government is responsible for and the types of decisions that members of council make. And I found it quite intriguing. So I started to pay more attention. I volunteered on a few more campaigns over the years. And I started to take an interest in community capacity building. So I looked at our local recreation facility and realized that there was tremendous opportunity to help out there. So I volunteered on a few committees of volunteered on that board. And I started to really ask a lot of questions about which cities are successful and what makes them successful. And I went back to get a PhD in urban sociology. In 2009, so I could educate myself on how great cities thrive. And part of that going back to school had to do with my consulting practice where I had started working with some land developers and some associations on how they could build a better relationship with the municipal government. So over the course of time, in a volunteer capacity and a professional capacity and from my educational perspective, I really dug into this idea of city building. And I realized that that's where my heart lives. And it took me a long time to figure that out. But once I captured that, I started getting even more interested. I volunteered on Calgary planning commission for four years before I ever became a counselor. So it was really this ten year journey of exploring what city building and community capacity building actually means that I look back on in the end of 2016 and I realized that I had been trying to influence city building from the outside and perhaps it was time to get a seat at the table and actually be one of the decision makers. So that's what led me to run in 2017. And the fact that we were going to see a change in our city over the next few years led me to run for mayor in the beginning of 2021 because I thought I could bring experience qualifications and passion to the position. And is there a specific example of that in Calgary at the moment that you can share with us that you think speaks to the value of that knowledge that you have in your role as mayor? Yeah, absolutely. You know, I can give you a couple of examples in 2015 when I was working at past Kane school of business. I volunteered on a committee at Calgary economic development, real estate advisory committee. And one of the things that we had noted was that as the oil and gas companies were moving out of our city, our values of downtown properties would start to depreciate. And we were raising the flag on the fact that the municipality would be earning less in property tax and that was going to impact budgets. So we were very actively calling on the council at the time to understand what the hollowing out of downtown would mean for the local government because the only predictable revenue stream is property taxes. It was at that time that I started to understand as well that we had a grave imbalance in terms of which property types were responsible for covering the operating budget. And so by the time I got to counsel in 2017 and began to challenge the fact that non residential properties probably shouldn't be paying 55% of the operating budget cost when you have half a million residential properties that are only paying 45%. So that's an incredibly technical example, but knowing those things allowed me to ask some really good questions at budget season. And the other thing I can tell you too is understanding how other jurisdictions function allowed me to capture the essence of the community revitalization levy, CRL, that we have in place in the river's district. It's a concept that's commonly used in American municipalities, not common in Canada at all. But it's a very smart move that allows you to revitalize an area by virtue of the tax uplift you will get from that revitalization effort. So knowing those things coming on to counsel was really helpful for me..

I think tim cycling back to that. That was our one of our challenges. How do you market what you're doing. How do you get the word what you're doing when you're the new guy in the block. One of the things. I found again going back to the difference between bless a houston and calgary but you find pockets in different cities but i found that to go build a relationship if you're in cowdery relationships faster and generally speaking your audience are happy to talk to sales guys and all those things a bit. You can have an everybody's in downtown so you can go to seven meetings in a day you know without ever get in your car or in. Houston you to meetings you. You're pretty much tapped out. So i found that it was easier. Once you get established in calgary word of mouth it was easy to kind of build up whereas in houston market. It's much harder when you get to denver liberty. It's again a word of mouth out on a thank. Oklahoma city is a word of mouth town. Houston it's a bigger challenge just to be able to solve them together. We got what six downtown areas almost. Now yeah absolutely and you gotta say what How do you overcome those challenges. You can't see everybody. Everything you're saying is correct You know i my first few meetings downtown. I'm asking the client. How do i get out of downtown now to get home So it's pretty complex but They're learned about the hov right. Yes three line. The hov absolutely Corey was young and innovative. We did everything from you know wine and cheeses and midland to you. Know providing banana splits in a presentation..

There's something here about these colleges in with this. Even if even if he had gone to oklahoma the rival they still would have been able to bond over a different way. Oh yeah making fun of them like like. I did totally tim. I think you can. You can relate to that story to your path a little bit similar to. Espn's as far as you're not from calgary you're houston guy. But you took a calgary company into houston talk a little bit about that synergy and what it was like for you being on an island. Actually when he started telling a story. That's why i raise my hand to go into that but i want to one thing that i found very interesting and i knew this early in my career to the us. Canada border is littered with technology companies. That have crashed into a not been able to go across the border and it seems so simple. I mean it's oil and gas tech. You should be able to. We've got a great tool. Let's go take it up to calgary or less take it down to houston should just translate. We've got a great absolutely absolutely. The cultural parts are so much harder to to do. Then you then you would think There's ingrained products already. And there's the you're not in my backyard. How do you know what we do. And of course there are some differences. I mean you don't have thirty thirty working interest partners on a well in canada you've got five and the us you've got thirty in some of them have such a small. Fraction is kind of silly to even sent him a piece of paper. But there you go. So i wanna ask you about that. You mentioned it. I want to bring it to that as you know. ian how. What are the challenges. You had to overcome once you got here. I understand the decision to come down here. We need a to be in there and be amongst the group but you know i did the same thing with energy navigator bringing you know trying to open their their product down here and we really struggled for a long time of one of our product but not the other and it's still is a struggle quite honestly i want to understand what your what did you have to overcome their really.

"So. Well. That's a good point as you know. I have been on the losing side of oats say thirteen to to fourteen to one. But more often than not I'm the yes and we have thirteen or fourteen council members the no things like tax freeze using the slush funds for the relief of all taxpayers trying to stop help the Millfield Park residents trying out some controls on these secret meetings, things like that bringing the Green Line. To a vote, those types of issues again, it's it's all in the positive and what our campaign is going to be about is what cowdery can achieve what we can prove to this country that we can do and who we can be as long as we had a city council that was willing to say, yes City Council that was willing to help rather than stand in the way. Yeah. Well, and you've been A. Dead, you're okay with being the lone person standing for some principles and things or. Two or three councillors at times. Losing a point of principle but at least getting that principle out there. And it's well known to mirror is just one vote. So even if you win though there's still a lot of challenges coming. That would mean having to develop a relationships compromises. One would hope there perhaps some different faces on council it'll be a little more receptive to some positive changes for you to work with anyways. You're prepared I mean that'll be a different environment for you to deal with though Indian that sense as opposed to you. Know you. Just, lose on a point of principle you want to get that thing through. Well, I think one thing that my constituents know about me is I've been able to get results. So they say all politics is local and if you had a counselor who truly was only gonNA grandstand and not get anything done. Their constituents would be the first to line up to get rid of them because if you get no results, then you get no support but I, think what I've been able to show to my constituents as I actually can deliver on the local issues the potholes getting things done, and there's been incredible series of motions I. Have Been Successful on say for example. I've been working together with the council feral. Likely ideological opposite to be able to. Update and fix some of these pipes that we still have in our water system. So this is a counselor who is quite the opposite of me on the political spectrum, but I can demonstrate that I work with her on an area of alignment where both of our wards residents benefit from. Same thing on other things like restoring our summer student program. I was able to actually partner with the mayor and saying you know this is not a cut that the city should be making if we if we're going to be making cuts at actually used to be in areas that save US money. So I do have a record of success things that I can point. To things that I have achieved and I'm incredibly excited for the campaign because this campaign is going to be about a records and I'm happy to to stand by and run on my own I didn't want to try to imply that that's all you do is die on these plates principle as well. But those are just ones hear about, of course, passes without too much conflict. And people don't hear about the. Went on in committee your times in past get those policies through. It's it's. A. convoluted process. Something that would help her absolute again, you've always been vocal on is getting more transparency..

"With some of the Calgary staff okay he's got to calm down yep I want to be a person who has a job like that I want to be one of the announcers okay he's got to calm down that is a great piece of advice he's got a chill just a little bit what do you do when someone goes nuts when you see someone explode in front of you when they're not exploding at you they're not even exploding at somebody else because in the first of the two examples I played people are just Jana technology so I'm curious what do you do when you see someone just give Superman edited out of an object an object that can't really fight back because I I try to suppress laughter if that tells you all you need to know about me all right bye okay that's fine but more often than not if I see someone super upset I will try to help I'm not one of the horrible people in Seinfeld who doesn't help someone in need I will do it I will get up I will figure out any technology you need me to understand for you but I will be suppressing a whole bunch of laughter and I imagine that's what's happening during this if you're pulling a coach off of a door to get him to not fight an entire opposing team you gotta be laughing in the back of your mind you gotta be think yourself man this is this is awesome but he's this upset that he's this past and everything going on right now because you know I will need to take a breather we all need to hear you know what I'm gonna do it here on the air because I think I needed to take a step back slow it on down and try to be calm and what else we need to do is be respectful to other people we don't have to let them do terrible things to us but we have to be nice enough to them to have some amount of common courtesy and that gets me to another piece of audio I have for you guys today it's from Washington post executive editor Marty Baron it's number four in our list for my producer Phil to find it I need talks about how news organizations just maybe and I know this is gonna be shocking everyone listening the show but maybe they need to do a better job and understand ARINC at understanding I can't even say it that the trump voter is a human being that the trump voter is a person who needs the same respect anyone else need they don't need what Michael Moore says they need to which is free to cross the road when you assume there in front of you but let's hear what Marty had to say yeah I like I mean I I think we have to be careful how I I I don't want to be dismissive of people who who support the president I think they're the they're owed our respect and they certainly have mine but you know they they feel that the so called elite in Washington of not a paid attention to them because they don't understand their lives they don't understand their concerns with a they're not being heard and they feel that the president is actually listening to them and addressing their concerns this is the kind of thing that I think we do need to take a step back and learn just a little bit better is that yeah and this is honestly true so often so often in life you come across somebody who seems very nice you talk to them just fine and guess what doesn't come up at all how they feel politically or how you feel politically because that's not really a defining characteristic of who we are as a person I mean in some ways I guess it it to a very small amount you know matters and I certainly would like to know where where any of my friends land on the political spectrum just because I have a certain level of interest in those things but it's not going to make the change the way I treat them it's not gonna make me need to cross the street when they're around me so you know that's a great piece of advice today to for Marty is that in today's day and age maybe just maybe we need to assume that every single person that voted for this guy or that guy or supports this person or that person is a more complex human being they have a lot more characteristics that that you and I need to take a second and and you know really contemplate and I know that I'm asking a lot of us but it's almost the end of a of a year we're about to have a new year's resolution almost all of us I assume have one and maybe one of mine is just to to treat more people with a certain level of respect and not assume once I know something about them like who they voted for that now I know a lot about them I just know very little about them at that point Greg counseling for Chad bents another quick break and then I've got a lot more topics that are going to be

"Awesome. Thanks, buddy. I. All here. Calgary. Flames. Johnson here. We're gonna roll in. And we're gonna walk out. What everyone else didn't take? We were gonna do. Well, I think they're good. I won't deny carbohydrate played some really good hockey. They got some young studs on that team there. You know, I've talked about this team many times, I think Calgary San Jose in Vegas are all very dangerous and one of them's going to eat the other. They're they're going to have to eat each other in terms of like only one guy gets left standing so in the west it's gonna be a battle with those three teams if you asked me, and I think Winnipeg stop there. But now, I'm not I can't see Winnipeg went in the Stanley Cup when they can't walk into Philadelphia beat the crappy flyers when you're a Stanley Cup champs. When you're a team that's capable of winning the stand. I think any team carbon I can lose any night here. But when you play a crappy team, you gotta beat them. That's all I agree with you. That was a bad loss. You're coming out of the all star break. It's a long break. Whatever here's the thing. And the the flames have been awesome this year. They've played great hockey. Right. Love their team. They've got great players. Here's my problem with the flames. They've got other teams in the Western Conference right now that I have seen. Gene, do it. I saw Vegas go to the finals last year. I saw Nashville go to the finals the year before that I saw Winnipeg go to the west finals last year. I've seen these teams win playoff series. I have not seen the Calgary. Flames do it until I see them. I cannot get on board with them. I think these other three teams are better. So if you were to look right now. Here's the teams the flames are the best right now. And I in the west right now having a monster year and then jets sharks predators nights wild stars, Avs. Those are the two nights did last year was stuff out of storybook stuff. I mean, there are an expansion team going to the finals, and I get what I just said totally against that. Because they hadn't done it. They were the first year in the league and they went to the finals. So I'm not saying it can't be done. I put a big premium on playoff experience and Nashville has that. What are they take one two rounds last year and got to the west finals Vegas went to the finals last year. They've won some round I need to see this Calgary before. Again. I gotta tell you. I saw Vegas play. And I still I think they're really good. I think they're a tough.
