Actually said you know what my dream to be able to sail down the coast with my family for a year long sailing trip so he quits his job him and his wife dee land along with iran his two sisters gotten a boat and sailed down the coast for a year all the way down to the east coast of the united states. Right down to the caribbean while he was there he was home schooled by his parents while he actually learned different life experiences. So they're sailing up and down the atlantic coast. What do they do when they're not in a boat like what's their business how they make a living laurent's grandfather owned a winery francois. His father was working at the winery and when they came back. They decided to sell the winery. Francois got involved in the culinary arts and he opened up a bakery and now they have several bakeries in the montreal area. So you have this fabulous this decidedly non traditional lifestyle that. They've embraced where they're sailing together. The running a vineyard. They're running bakeries. I mean this. Forgive me mathis. Sounds like the idyllic french canadian life and it's because of these very different childhood experiences matt that laurent doesn't even start playing football until he's fourteen years old. He commits studying medicine at mcgill a very prestigious university in montreal and he ultimately decides to play. Football at mcgill is well. What do you think you'll laurente to. The game of football laurent has always said that. He loved being on the field with his teammates. He loved working as a team much. Like as a medical doctor working on a floor with a team an operating room is kind of similar as football field in the sense that there's eleven people or twelve people working together and you've got to know where you fit in that team so i think he's taking. This is a dream. I want to play for the highest level in the sport that i can play at and obviously in canada. You don't have a long list a players that made it there but he He said his mind to and he says i'm going to do
Homeless in the winter, in a pandemic. A deadly combination.
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jacob launch is a reporter and writer based in toronto who looked into exactly how deadly this winter can be for vice. Hello dick how are you. I'm doing well thanks I'm glad you're looking at this topic. I know this is not a usual winter for people who live on the streets. Why don't you just start By telling me about the man who who started the story for you a who is raphael. Andrei and what happened to him. So i don't know much about rafael. A been to the shelter where he stays. I have spoken to some people there. And the general sense that i got was that In this happens with a lot of folks who pass away in the street You know is that. They're very caring very helpful. People the communities that they are part of they love being part of anti in this case Mr andre was certainly a friend of the shelter in the shelter is a friend of him. But because of the covid nineteen That was given for the shelter to shut down He was forced to sleep at side. Instead of being able to stay in stores following the death of an indigenous homeless man on the streets of montreal his body was found in a portable toilet. Just meters away from a shelter that had been forced to close its overnight services because a pandemic restrictions and it's it's not uncommon to you know many people i talked to who are harm reduction workers Or otherwise work with homeless people It's definitely not uncommon to For homeless folks who are using drugs to go into a porta potty because usually it is the only sort of Private space that they have available to them Albeit it is not a a healthier or safe place to be. Can you explain just a bit. Maybe about the circumstances surrounding his death before we move on to to the bigger issue you mentioned that he was part of a shelter community but he was not in the shelter. Why not an and how do those rules. Impact shelter yes so essentially. What happened was shelter had had an outbreak of covid nineteen in december. And so they were told that they could reopen the beginning of the year but they would not be able to stay open past nine thirty presumably this because people would be saying sleeping indoors spending more time indoors together Maybe during the day to coming in and out and there's less There's less of a chance of a spread of the virus. That seems to be what the municipal health authority believes So there was that nine thirty curfew way. It should be noted that it's this Nine thirty closing time is different than the provincial curfew that is currently Enforcing a being enforced in quebec and there has been calls to the premier Francois ago To give homeless people in exemption from this curfew. I don't know if that would have made a difference here. But i certainly think that. Some of the recent lockdown measures are Are certainly backfiring much. More than they did during the first wave on people who are homeless or otherwise experiencing some form of Lack of shelter right. Well as you mentioned. There's a pretty hard curfew in quebec right now in and it does apply to homeless people as well. What are homeless people supposed to do in a curfew that orders them off the streets so for my understanding that the general the german general message being sent by the premier by the police is that homeless people will be fine. They're not going to be ticketed. Although we've seen some instances were homeless. People have been ticketed. This this happens all the time. Even pre covid homeless people being ticketed for sleeping inside of bus shelters or being ticketed for sleeping on the street corner. So it's not really a covid specific thing but certainly the only people probably going to be outside during a curfew are people who don't have a home to stay in and so right now. Francois's logo the premier has said that there is no exemptions He said that his concern with allowing exemption for homeless people is that it would create incentive for people to break curfew in then saying that they're homeless When approached by police officer. Which i think there are a number of reasons why. That's not a strong argument. I mean you know someone. S i'm sure someone who's going to their friends house or partying or whatever they're doing you know trying to do after eight pm is not going to go through the trouble of disguising themselves as a homeless person That's the that's the premier said that that that they would disguise themselves as homeless people so It's i think it's a bit absurd. Also the other issue here which is that. This is coming at a time when a lot of people are not Other encampments everywhere because of not being able to stay in shelters but more and more people are kind of facing homelessness a now in the at least here in toronto in in terms of the frontline workers that i've spoken to They're meeting a lot of first timers. A lot of people who've never been homeless before some people who are in their mid to late twenties And for those kind of people especially these situations are are really destabilizing because You know you're you're trying to figure out how to get by day today And you're also now trying to avoid running into problems with the law running into problems with perhaps other folks that are outside so it.
Quebec Woman Walks Husband on Leash To Get Around Curfew

She walked him on a leash at nine pm. An hour after curfew. When they were stopped by police the woman argued. People are allowed to walk dogs on a leash within of their homes after eight pm. The curfew is implemented saturday night after quebec reported a surge of covid nineteen cases. Francois legault this. The premiere of canada quebec in canada implemented eight pm curfew.

The fight for the Central African Republic

"Know before Western settlement there was probably a you know twenty to thirty year cycle in many of the forests in which Lightning strikes, and there'd be fire that would clear out the undergrowth but would not significantly damage you know the mature trees. And the. Forest. Or think that that that was a pretty widespread natural cycle in the the you know the fuel management of the forests happened through a kind of a natural fire cycle. Starting, about one hundred and twenty years ago we started doing two different things with that one was. We we began suppressing almost all fires in the in the forests. particularly on federal land, and then at the same time, we began fairly robust use of the resources and the forest for timber grazing mining. Recreation which involves road-building and settlement. And so human activity took the place of fire in removing fuel through logging through grazing and a variety of other things. In the last four years we have quite aggressively withdrawn a lot of those consumptive uses of the forest. So there's a lot less grazing there is a lot less logging and There's a lot less road building. And maintenance, and as a result, there's a lot of fuel growth. That are human activities have been keeping down. and. That she'll growth is now far overtaken the ability of the forest to burn without. Burning down if you will and that's that's really the nature of the problem that's exacerbated by you know as we said earlier, periodic droughts bark, beetle, infestation disease things like this so. But. But I think the key thing is that. Because the federal government is the landowner. They've got to be the responsible party to reduce these fuel loads and let stopping them Tony Bureaucracy and red tape or is it ignorance? Well, I think it's mostly beer accuracy and red tape I've talked to many Forest Service You know lying employees. Who you could point to three or four projects that they have, you know sketched out maybe even some that have gone through a lot of the bureaucratic planning steps and they've either been shut down by lawsuits or threats of lawsuits or you just don't have the funding to actually do them. Per The problem a large part of the problem is that Congress as the you know both the land owner, and then the rule-maker, they'd pass all the laws that that govern the management of the forest has really handcuffed the the agencies mainly the forest service, but also the Park Service Bureau of land management with an enormous number of conflicting and overlapping statutory requirements you've got. The federal, Land Policy and Management Act Natural National Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act that this act that the other act and you know these these have these do not all have consistent purposes and and legal requirements. And, and then of course, you know federal agencies face a gauntlet of citizens sued. We Pacific. Legal Foundation have filed our own those in support of. You know. Robust commercial use the forest so. The. The the thing that Congress needs to do like right now. But they fiddle while parts of the western United States burn yeah. I. Mean They. They actually need to take take a look that they actually need to observe what's going on and decide that they're going to remove. FIRERAMS fire risk reduction projects fuel removal projects from this this labyrinth of bureaucracy and red tape that that right now. Keeps the agencies from doing the right thing, and they need to fund the projects that the agency's needs to do. Now, that can either be with federal funds and contractors, or it can be the old fashioned way and where there's a market for it letting private companies come in and do the work usually at their own expense but in exchange for being able to remove timber that that makes it worth their while. I I mean the the the new consensus that needs to be achieved is that whatever you value about these forests. We all lose all those things we value when they burn this badly. and. So if you're if you're for, yeah, you know commercial use of the forest. Yeah. You you've got a stake in this If you're a community that lives near forest, you gotta stake in this. But even if you're environmentalists that wants to preserve the forests, they're not being preserved right now not under this regime, and so you've got a stake in simplifying and you know allowing fjord action to move forward. L. Course that relies on congress getting off it's Duff rediscovering and dusting off and whatever back room they hid their bipartisan good sense and so. had. A. That's not something that the most reasonable people expect a suddenly happen soon, at at Pacific Legal Foundation we've been doing a lot of research on this problem and You know we think we've. Developed a you know kind of the different approach that local communities can take. So that they don't have to rely on Congress to act and the the strategy that we're recommending. People look at all across the western United. States are filing nuisance lawsuits in federal court against the federal. Agencies. not so much that it's the forest fold mainly Congress fault things are the way they are, but you don't Congress you see the you know the agency that actually does the work. and just like in you know any city or town neighborhood we live in. Yeah, we each have responsibility to maintain our property in a condition that's not gonNA cause harm to our neighbors. So we don't let you know we don't let our property become abandoned and rundown and turn it with drugged in or a fire trap or You know the.

By wildfire this across the North Central Colorado and southern Wyoming this according to the Rocky Mountain Coordination Center, let's do the math four, hundred, forty, two, thousand acres that seven, hundred and thirty six square miles. Now, the state of Colorado has one hundred and three thousand square miles. So that's almost the seven hundred thirty, six square miles. That's almost three quarters of the state of Rhode. Island the smallest state coming in at a thousand. Square miles should the federal government be doing more to prevent wildfires not only across the state but a burning in other states across the western United? States should they be doing more six, thirty, eight now thirteen ten, Kfi a thirteen ten KFI K. A. Dot com joined by Tony. Francois Senior Attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation. Tony thanks so much for taking the time. Certainly, a timely interview as my understanding is you're in Californian stranger wildfire activity there. That's correct and thanks for having me this morning and Certainly, our prayers are with everybody there is dealing with the. pretty big fire going on right now. Absolutely, at last count, we've got nine active wildfires, the cameron peak fire. The largest in Colorado state history writes in our own backyard right here in northern Colorado. But you wrote a great piece in the hill talking about. The fact that. The Nation is no stranger to America's for Boris burning each and every year, and you go on to say yet despite this predictable yearly carnage, the solutions our government can and should immediately take our lost among generalizations and talking points. It's bad for US warrant management some say other say no, it's climate change well, which is it. Will. You know as I say in the piece I mean they're they're both right and they're both. I I mean obviously, we experience in the in the western United States. you know cycles of drought and and wetter periods, and then when we're when we're going through drought cycles, whatever their causes is then our forests are are gonNA experience stress because of that. But we've also I think indisputably I think most forest professionals will will tell you this in spades. Spend. Many decades doing things actively with with some force management. That have resulted in enormous accumulation of of fuel. That's that's not part of the natural fuel and fire regime our forests. And the result of that is these increasingly big hot destructive fires. But. So certainly, both sides are right in their own way when they when they tossed back and forth can't sort of what's causing the the conditions. But the problem with the argument is that you know whether it's you know two thirds, climate change and one-third management or. Even split of both. The the landowners primarily, the federal government are a hundred percent responsible for protecting the communities that surround them and rely on on those forests from the harm that they're experiencing now. And you know in the last Say Five years. This has gone from being something that happens kind of way out there you know in the in the mountains to you know A. enormous fires burning right down to the edges of cities and wiping out small towns around the around the West United States and be I was actually you know had the. Had the opportunity to hear the the air quality report coming into the segment, and we've had the same thing here in California. Entire time zones inundated with smoke for weeks it's unhealthy to breathe. So I think that the There's greater and greater public awareness that there's a problem with the way. The federal government maintains the conditions of these forests and it's you know beyond time for you know everybody to quit dickering over precisely. What causes it? And take the actions that are necessary to start preventing them to reduce the fuel loads in the federal forest lands to a reasonable level and reduce the risk of fire You know catastrophic fire that we've all been experiencing does something far more reasonable livable. Tony, if you would I, I wanNA rewind because I. think that most of us have a basic cursory understanding of natural fuel loads but you spoke of the introduction of fuel loads outside of those natural feel loads can you break that down for us? Oh sure well..

"Years ago, Fake news loomed large over the U. S. Presidential election troll farms linked to Russia turned out fictitious stories online and completely made up articles written Well, maybe bite. Macedonian teenagers went viral. It's impossible to know exactly what effect has had on the results, but it certainly was big news. So what is the picture looked like this time around. BBC Trending Sze Sam Jr has been investigating, starting with a chat with a struggling writer from New York State. My name is Colin Munro. Would I work as a freelance writer? I read news all day constantly. Collinwood was delighted to be writing about politics for a new website called Peace Data ahead of this year's U. S election, even though he wasn't getting paid, and the editors of the site were enthusiastic about what he was sending in. They loved it. They were very accepting of my writing who you're dealing with is it was the same person. He has an odd name, but he said he was a no assistant editor to the organization. He had his own linked and things of that nature. It looked legit. But one day recently, he found out the whole thing was a sham. Colin had been writing for a far left new site created and run by Russians. To put all of this in context. Let's roll back the clock For years. Fake news can have really world consequences. Facebook was paid at least $100,000 by Russian troll farms for advertising. The 2016 election was beset by fake news. Completely made up stories apparently produced by Russian organizations and amplified on social media. But this time US citizens have become unwitting foot soldiers in the battle. Recruited by small scale websites run the authorities and Facebook say from Russia. The legitimate looking editors behind the site weren't even really people. So, says disinformation expert Camille Francois Grafica. So if you look very closely add those faces. You realize they're not exactly symmetrical. So sometimes one of the editor would have one earring and then the other earring just didn't match. Those air old Council signs that the picture could have been generated with the technology that a century creates a new face from scratch. The peace data editors were completely made up. They're photos were computer generated constructions. Back in 2016 so called fake news ran rampant with fictional headlines like Pope Endorses Donald Trump. This time around the big social media companies thwarted this operation before it could really pick up steam. But there's a new problem coordinated disinformation campaigns that are entirely homegrown. Isaac Stanley Becker is a reporter for The Washington Post, and over the summer he got a tip off from a concerned relative. Someone got in touch and said that they're teenage nephew in Arizona had been posting really curious messages on social media messages that led them to believe that their family member might have been hacked by the Russians. In fact, the teenager along with many others, was posting on behalf of a right wing American lobby group Turning Point USA for a fee. The messages cast doubt on the severity of the Corona virus pandemic on even spread myths about voter fraud. Money was changing hands. It was nowhere disclosed that this was part of a highly organized but secret is operation. Run by a very well heeled pro charm organization, the marketing firm running the operation was banned from Facebook but turning point themselves avoided punishment. Some point to the discovery of these campaigns as a good news story. Social media firms caught sleeping in 2016 have stepped up their game. But others, including Isaac Stanley, Becca think the spread of falsehoods has become absolutely endemic in American politics. The way we campaign and the way we discussed politics, it's just infuse with disinformation. It's become normal. As one expert put it to me in 2016. We saw Macedonian teenagers being paid to coordinate and conduct. This sort of activity and now patrol farm is in Phoenix. It's right here at home. There's

"Earn earn more money? Why try if you're at nine point nine million dollars? Why bother if they're gonna take almost all of it over there? You're you know, you're gonna stop you're gonna stop bothering right or you're going to find ways around it. Which is another thing that a lot of people. Do the next step is process is it if you if it does have a good benefit and the cost is not too high. Can it clears the process is it constitutional is it legal most of the time. People don't ask that either. They don't bother with that one. And then four is the one that almost never gets asked, which is it moral for let's just say the benefit. Okay. Yes. Theoretically, taking billionaires money and giving it to poor people. There's a benefit to those poor people cost. Let's say, well, they're built bastard billionaires, we don't care about the cost process. Well, the sixteenth amendment. I mean, it gives you a right to income tax. I guess constitutionally. But is it moral is it moral to take someone else's stuff to propose the thing that you're doing should you ever go after even more and more and more of someone else's earning someone else's possession? Something that you had nothing to do with because you feel it's important to take from them and not allow them to. Do what they want with their own possession. A big part of this is you know, if we're going to have if we're going to have a welfare state or going to have some amount of military spending or government spending. Whatever we've got to figure out how we're going to portion who who pays for it. That's a fair a fair conversation when you look at Alexandria, Cosio Cortez. And you look at Lisbeth warn the impression I get is that. Yeah, they'd like to fund more stuff. But really they just don't want billionaires. So it's not a question of like, well, we need more money to spend for these wonderful things that we all agree as needed is just billionaires bad. Let's use tax as a weapon to punish people for being successful. And I do not like using taxes as a weapon whether it's through cigarette. Taxes to discourage you dumb yokels for smoking cigarettes where there's punish billionaire spring successful. If you don't like billionaires millionaires, there's a very easy formula. Just get rid of them. And that's what what's Larry is Francis. Already done this. These are not new ideas. Everything Okaz Cortez lives with Warren, everyone the last administration. France, tried this Francois Hollande was. Probably one of the more socialist presence. They they've had for France. Yeah. He did the things seventy five percent well tax and a few other things the results of that were by twenty two thousand by twenty fifteen I think it was ten thousand millionaires even billionaires millionaires left left the country by far more than any other place in the entire world in the United States the statistics safaris, I'm more of it is right now the top one percent if we wanna use that weird artificial racket for about forty four percent of the taxes in the United States. If you scare off the one percent that's paying about half of the taxes right now you and I now have to increase taxes, we're paying. The very next year. This just crazy just make this point the they didn't slowdown, but it actually increased by another two thousand Belgium. Belgium. They do they have the all the. This having New York and Florida with Trump tax cuts. They can't deduct the state taxes. They're all these millions of moving to Florida. I will include my fifth step in this process, which is not necessarily official one. But if you go through, and you find the benefit and the cost and the process, and the moral is, okay, you've probably still shouldn't do it. Anyway, that's just something. I'm trying to tell the government just as a general platform and that probably be good back in a minute. It's it's to inform the way they do..

"It's it's laying bare the damage that this can do to another human being and to me Judy is actually at least for the. Second part of the film the protagonist. Yeah. Absolutely. And that's and that's because of the choice that Hitchcock and MRs Hitchcock, make right? I yeah. I mean the way that it would I I could see it as a feminist statement is an exactly what you said the way it exposes the harm and the the wrongness of this kind of controlling male figure, and I don't think that's something. That's unintentional. You you have an echo of it. When they're describing the story of Carlotta Valdes guy in Berkeley. And he says something along the lines as he says, she's just discarded men could do that that back, then, you know. And yeah. And what are you saying that I wasn't sure whether he was saying it wistfully come across condemning Lee. But yeah, you you never know with Hitchcock in the interview that hits did with Truffaut. The French filmmaker Francois Truffaut. Became a book. Write it came Draymond again. I have the book I own the book, here's a psychological theme. He him dressing are up to look like Madeline who he believes is dead his intention was to shoot it as if he's undressing her because his goal is to is necrophilia to have the deg dead woman. And he says right at the very end where she has the the the the the dress and the shoes, and but that she's let her hair down because and she says it goes better with her with her face or something like that. And and he says, no you have to put your hair up Hitchcock said that was like she's naked except she still has her knickers on. And then she she puts her hair up. Now, the knickers are off and now he can love her and accept and embrace her. And and so that's the moment where there have he's he's finally having sex with his finally engaging. In that active necrophilia that he's been trying to engage right? I mean. Hopefully hitchcock. It didn't mean, you know. Actual sex with a dead body. But in some symbolic way, this is having sex with somebody who just does not exist. Right. He's creating somebody. And so their existence is purely your creation, which Lee which this leads me to. Kind of interpretation of this film that that like I don't know if it's a stretch for me. But. Because I think I'm just a fan of meta nece in general everything that I like either is meta in some way or or interpreted in that way. But my favorite works of art are ones that seem to be critiqued like seemed to be commenting about themselves about something. Yeah themselves, and and here's what I'm what I was thinking as I saw the movie, and I was reading about it could be taken as a statement of what? What movies cinema Hollywood does? To the audience. It creates this fake person that we then become obsessed with and if that's the case if that's the statement that's being made to me the standing for Hitchcock in this movie is Gavin Elster Gavin Elster creates this person X knee Hilo sort of you know, and and Jimmy Stewart from the moment, he sees her in that restaurant. It is like the classic movies of love at first sight moment. He is obsessed with her in the way that that people become obsessed with with actors, and he has created this person. This person is not true is not a real person. And Jimmy Stewart has to deal with the pain of of that nothing real person in tries really really hard to make that into a real person and the whole time this there are other real people in his life. Right. Right. Yeah. And and I couldn't. But read that this is, you know, and we haven't even talked about his actual vertigo.
