"Goddamn good names. And if Mario and you hadn't been as injured and sick and dealing with illness as he was, he was when he retired the first time before he came back after several years. Mario Lemieux was, I believe, the only player to have average over two points per game throughout his entire career. Over two years. Every time he laced up the skates, he was going to Pittsburgh was going to score at least two goals off of his stick either. And then if you ever want to get the chills, you go back and watch them use first game back after the two or three years of retirement. When I think he had two goals and two assists and one of them was like a breakaway when everybody kind of liked the hype was all built up and he scored. It'll give you the fucking chills. But anyways, we're talking a lot about playoff hockey. It's not a hockey podcast, so we're not going to talk hockey. But game time is the best app. If you're looking to go to a game, I think this weekend, I'm going to be in St. Louis. I'm going to see my nephew and niche for the first time since Christmas. See a bunch of the boys. I believe I'm going to go to a blues game. I believe the way I'm going to do it is game time, which is a new ticketing app that makes it easier than ever to score. Last minute deals on tickets to sports blues will probably be up to nothing to go back to home ice, which is nice. Concert shows, they guarantee the lowest price. These guys were just at a show last week, Nate bargatze. I don't believe they needed to use game time because we're Friends with the guy, not to brag, but if you're looking to go to any show from comedy concert music, playoff hockey basketball, before you know it, which is crazy, it's going to be, I mean, we're already in baseball season, but we're going to have football things are always kind of happening.

That's an interesting sort of semantic point that we're talking about lots of different perspectives on the period and i really keen to ensure that we do get that tibesti of Looking for example at the caravan revelation but The that the haitian slave revolt etc. But actually so much of the period is is it so core level in a try blackouts outs. How mac got stymied so completely In one thousand nine five. It's not really about a battalion per se so it's really interesting to get this alternative view. It's about that level of hundreds rather than thousands or tens of thousands and how they interact ago. I have a great deal of respect for anybody who thinks that can write a history of campaign and get through it without making a mistake. Because for what internet by i spent. I is looking all the different bits of information. You get one day of the retreat burgers. And i think the what tends to happening campaign histories is you have to keep with the broad brush.

Okay i really what you mean sir. At the time if if you look at the One of the things. One of the things i had to look at for boxtel was tommy atkins. Of course. there's everybody knows the duke of into remember the the sergeant tommy atkins of the thirty third. It was it was injured about style and he said it's all in a day's work.

It's one of these points of transition Want find is the the who artillery the royal artillery is grated in seventy nine thousand three also artillery was one of the things. The french did pretty well and he used it very aggressively and scored skirmishes and fortunately horse artillery makes battalion guns look pretty pretty Pretty amateur But the thing again that is clear from when you read the actual reports is battalion. Guns were not bad. Just weren't as good as having hillary and right so guys. I guess fraser was in charge. Prepare battalion guns boxtel right. The one of the things he He writes in his lady is out.

Has Been like a brother to me since I was twelve years old I know the man I know the competitor I know the artist no, the teacher there's a lot of train for us to cover a lot of Nixon crannies to explore but I thought we would begin with Maurice the Jamaican and I was hoping you could describe for us your beginnings and we could start with the with the genesis while yes I was born in Jamaica. Island. Not the area of Quaid's and I grew up there. I was there until I was twelve years old before I came to this country. But probably, the most significantly got happened for me in. Jamaica. Was the fact that my mother left Jamaica to come to the United. States, when I was two years old, my brother was ten. My sister was seven months old and. Opportunity to come to the US, she couldn't bring all of us at the same time. Cheech only bring herself. And her leaving was really quite an event in our lives. My father wasn't with us but living with us at the time. So we grew with our grandmother. and My mother would send. down. Stuff supplies to Jamaica Whether v Foodstuffs Flour and rice she sent him in a barrel and she said, well, she said notebooks in armor sending like a softball and a glove, and of course Jamaica. Nobody played softball baseball nothing. So I threw the glove to the site, not knowing what to do with it and use the softball as a soccer ball. Got Pretty warned down already quickly a really turn into a softball very quickly to that. But. We just being raised by my grandmother she was a teacher by training. And so she would teach us so much as young people. So we were really well prepared educationally because of my grandmother and she was sixty four years old at the time of my mother left the imagined a sixty, four year old having had seven children for own. Now suddenly taking on the care of her daughter's children at that age when thinking about maybe slowing down and retiring enjoying herself. But for the next year, she took care of us and I was really a hugely significant part of growing up living there.

"Matters with your host Garry Goldberg for over four decades Kerry has been helping people navigate their retirement portfolios that was nine presidents ago when the Dow was eight hundred for the ups and downs of the markets our country and our daily lives Gerry has seen it all and provides real money management for real people because after all money matters now here's Gary Goldberg hello everybody this is Gary Goldberg on money matters welcome to the program well I recall has about a week or so ago holding your hand because the month of December started out with a major decline and it was reminiscent of what happened in December of twenty eighteen and I specifically said in my opinion this is not a replication of what we experienced in twenty eighteen for the month of December and now we are seeing stability we are seeing good discussions going forward into twenty twenty so the fear element I believe has dissipated and typically the month of December works out well for investors but stocks were on fire in the month of November because of easier monetary policy the expectations that China and the United States would strike a trade deal the federal reserve cut rates twice since August they signal that they're gonna keep them at current levels for a while and China the United States of said well they're closing in on phase one of a trade agreement and they hope to get it signed before the end of the year although president trump has suggested the other day that an agreement may not come until after next November's election so I decided to use a little bit a classroom here because many of you here about the impact of Chinese tariffs and what it can do to your investments but I want to drill down a little bit most of you are not economists my background is economics markets investing so I did some homework on white acts truly happens in a U. S. China trade battle China is the most populous country in the world at one point three billion people they had the second largest economy ranked just below you guessed it the United States their GDP is twelve trillion dollars this high GDP however does not make them the wealthy country that you would expect their country ranked twenty in twentieth place even though they were the wealthiest country in terms of GDP they were in twentieth place per capita the average per capita was fifteen thousand dollars so knowing that they have so many people per capita is fifteen thousand and they are dependent upon trade they are vulnerable to coming to some conclusion in relation to trade tariffs now we both know that president trump is up for reelection in twenty twenty and we also know that president she is president for life so he can sit back to the extent that he can rationalize this and say you know I don't care but all you have to do is look at what's going on in Hong Kong look at the pressures that are building up in that sector of the world and there is pressure on the president of China to come to the trading table a lot of global manufacturing companies are attracted by low debt a cheap supply of materials and guess where that is in China they located US companies located their manufacturing units in China that's why when you buy something you often see the label made in China I remember growing up I used to see the label and maybe you can relate to this folks made in Japan that meant it was cheap it's not cheap anymore Japan but made in China is very common so companies were if they were relocating their manufacturing facilities to China they were able to produce goods cheaply and explains why a lot of products we use in our lives are made in China China is the third largest export partner the first by the way is Canada the second in Mexico of the United States I want to repeat that China is our third largest export partner we send stuff to them China also happens to be our country's largest import partner the imports are about five hundred billion dollars about twenty one percent of the total imports of the United States or with China they also are the largest creditor of the United States so let's talk about that for a moment when they the creditor of the United States that in plain English means they are the biggest buyer of US treasuries now they don't buy am because they love us they buy them because our treasuries or the safe harbor in uncertain weather but they actually have over a trillion dollars a trillion dollars of U. S. treasury securities I remember saying when this battle started the tariff battle started with China that one of the leverage points that China could have on us as a country was to stop buying or treasuries in fact I speculated maybe they will start selling some of our treasuries well they didn't do that the reason is we're still as I said the right place to invest they're not gonna cut off their nose to spite their face as of now but there is leverage there so all of the statistics and I'm throwing out at you it shows the importance of the Chinese economy and while any developments in China whether they're negative or positive can influence our country we have to understand what Chinese tariffs are all about a lot of companies who are doing their business in China in order for them to remain profitable they need to see these tariff battles sees slowdown rectify themselves because if they are not going to be profitable I'm talking about the companies in the United States that are doing their manufacturing in China if these tariffs are going to escalate even further they may be laid off some of their people now lay offs have a ripple effect if you lay off people the people who get laid off have to find a job they have debt that has to get paid off they could file for bankruptcy so they do have leverage over us and any kind of decrease in the amount of people who are going to be employed could affect the United States unemployment rate one silver lining here oil prices are low primarily because of a slowdown in the economy of China they are you each consumer of oil but the negative effects of an economic slowdown may be temporary and eventually oil prices could go higher one of the reasons that I like oil stocks going ahead is for that and also the dividends that they pay if you want to have a private conversation with me just call me eight eight eight four four one two zero three three when we come back I'm going to talk about one of my favorite subjects dividend paying stocks stay tuned we'll be back right after these messages.

Mark Randolph talks about turning a No into a Yes
"Everybody Buddy welcome to episode three twenty five of the ask. Garry show and I'm very excited about this episode. Let's go right into it. I know a lot of people watching livestream across all the platforms but it's GonNa be Lincoln today. As we continue testing out Lincoln live linked in. Please put in your phone numbers. If you have a question for for my distinguished guest here today Markham and allow you to introduce yourself in a second. new book is out. Obviously I'm really excited about talking about Netflix and his career but I want to get into a bunch of questions because even the first three or four minutes of just hanging with him before we went live. I think the energy is going to be really good which which is exciting to me from a content standpoint so mark. Why don't you introduce yourself and tell everybody a little bit about your origin. Story sounds good. Gary so Marc Randolph co-founder co-founder for CEO net flicks and now soon to be author. which is kind of adding something totally new to my mix for you origin story well? I'm I'm sixty one so I'm still working out with. My origin story is what were you born. I was born just over there in Chappaqua up so I'm a New York boy. He's so for the first half of my life and so. What kind of kid were you so? I was a kid who anytime I wanted to do something. My parents said go for it. That's I I come home and go dad. I'm going to caving in rather than being like what are you. What are you nuts. I get the fantastic. That sounds really cool. That's really neat. It was really neat. Where where were you in the only child you have siblings. I'm the oldest of three okay so right off the bat. Even you know it's funny you hear that a lot more from third child's else perspective so even as the oldest. Your parents had gave you some room. I think for third child. It's like what's what's your name. I know knows it was is really great. It all other thing I do reflect back on. What was it about how I grew up that maybe gave me? Some of the things I have and one is that it was also a family. We're no is always something to get around. It was like not something that you took no and walked and left from the standpoint of if your parents said no oh they appreciated you trying to figure it out a little bit 'cause my mom was like that a little bit yeah and also them kind of recognizing that whenever barrier came up it wasn't like we give up and walk away okay it. It was always being said there's amazing. Go right into this a little bit later this. I was graduating from college okay and I wanted to get a job as a advertising EXAC back. Okay I was really into yet anyway. I applied for this job at. NWEA air no longer here but firm Yup and it was one of those jobs which only usually usually goes to MBA's yup is an undergraduate so as long shot thing and those like I don't know a thousand people applying and I got the first round and then the second round they bring it in York and and I got the second round in the third round they bring you back and I got down to the point where there's only four people applying for this job and it was like Holy Shit and I went in in an interview with everybody whole day and didn't get it and went slinging backup to upstate New York college and going well screw it. I'm I'm not going to up so I wrote these long emails to our letters letters letters to everybody and basically was saying like all right. I'll try again. What what could I do better. What should I learn. What do you want to see and then the guy goes. Come on down and brings me up and offered me the job and the crazy thing is that no one was given the job none of the four of us interesting that this was a job which was about turning a no into Oh yes and so they said no to everybody and waited to see who would not take no for an answer really absolutely. That's amazing that a crazy crazy thing thing. I love it so that really is probably the best articulation of how I grew up interesting so you took that job kind of actually notice how I kind of the way you tell us what I'm like. He didn't take the fucking job I did and I took it even crazier job. which was there was the guy? I've ever told history before. There was a guy in Memphis. Tennessee owned a big cotton company sold it in the family of two hundred years made a gazillion dollars and was basically driving around throwing money out the window basically feels like today you're go he'd he bought these properties and I'm kind of an outdoorsy guy. They have always been into like your story was caves. Yes absolutely WHOA. This guy had bought a ski shop. He'd bought a place out veil and he was looking for someone to tie them altogether and he goes. You'RE GONNA. You're going to run this kind of this big CO marketing business. Did you know that family friends that someone like that. That would give you that at bat at that. Young of an age. There was some other variable relationships. You're you're drag me down. These complicated stories but you're pro so there's an organization that I apologize business where I wanNA bring value to the audience mark. Here's why the reason I'm probing is because I have a very good sense of my audience and ironically. I'm pretty good at this other than the fact. I love to interrupt all the time. I'm because I'm just because I already know what the answers are and because I'm usually on a time crunch so they actually the audience gets mad at me. 'cause I interrupt everyone on the flip side. I've an incredible sense about what stories could bring value. I promise you mark let me tell you one thing about this audience. This is not the today show like what's amazing about. This audience is thirty. Four people bull arbitrary number just heard that story and literally in the next twenty four hours are going to reply to a no and one was gonna get yes and you and I literally right now. Just change the course of somebody's life and that's what gets me high. It's it's unbelievable and by the way don't worry about the interrupting. I mean if you just said like pass the roles and the thought I was talk about the story cool. How'd you get them. So when I was fourteen they packed my parents pack up to Wyoming to do this. backpacking trip in the mountains uh-huh and it turns holidays again which one of your parents was super outdoorsy. If either my dad my dad grew up in Austria so he kind of just if you've gone so and then I loved this program and it was a personal teaches leadership using a wilderness as a setting and I was a student there for three or four summers and then I ended up teaching there as a leader and then eventually got to the point is leading leading the whole courses so a lot of responsibility young that was my college summer job and so this Julian Jay Hohenberger the third the guy with the Cotton Company at one of the things he did when he was throwing the money the window was. I'm GonNa take a course he. He went out to Wyoming. He did this course you taught it. I did not he was so in Namur d- by the course and instructors that when he heard from my through through someone else that I was of course leader there he goes. I want that guy. You know what's so funny. I to this day still have that in me. You show me a kid a guy or a gal who flips sneakers cells blow. POPS does cards like I believe in that Shit Genetic Markers for entrepreneurship I do not it's candy the arbitrage everyone almost everyone. I meet like you says the same thing. It's going in and buying it for ten cents in the next day you go to school for a buck and if you show me people not that it's why. I love people that sell weed who sought like if you tell me that you sold we'd from a bad neighborhood obviously a normally but not always and and you sold nickel bags. I already am interested in you because it means literally arbitrage dime bags. Somebody who's never smoked weed telling the story Free College. I always thought my friend Bob use would have been a good entrepreneur because he had the discipline and the grind to go down to the nickel bag bag level that takes a real fucking commitment and so- arbitrage anyway absolutely right. It's it's the vision to go knocking. It's seeing an opportunity. It's seeing a pressure differential hundred and that happens for kids who are six when it's candy. It happens for people in their twenty six or forty six when they see oh man taxis suck. I'M GONNA do hundred thousand percent. It's that's why it's a marker for that is someone who sees things really matched of course with all these other things. Of course you've seen which is what happened your kid out of school. You're twenty two and you're now running this conglomerate of different businesses and then even worse. I did this job percents and this company better the company that one of the properties was in in the ghost town resort in outside of Vale and the manager did your left and they go and I go I want that job and so they moved me out and now you're this twenty-three-year-old knows nothing and he's running this place which a sixty employees and as he's huge cash flow issues and a restaurant bar and and I'm going down. I'm doing the marketing and the advertising and it was like cashflow one. Oh one it was management one. Oh one it was thrown into this super deep pool and going to swim. You don't know how you're sitting. You're quiet because I'm like. Oh my God we grew up the same way. I'm the byproduct of the same thing in a liquor store. Yeah it was a small base of four five and six employees and then I grew it but by the time I was twenty five years old. I had managed people. I'd paid all my bills with my cat own cash flow. You know credit no credit line. I forget about fucking raising capital. No credit line the first business I built from three to sixty million dollars hours year in fucking eight years had no credit. That's awesome because then you don't see credit as a crutch. You see it's a thing that you is what you know now how to use that the US it's awesome and even if you're trained in it when I raised money for empathy. I didn't spend it as well when when that's exactly right it is something that could save you overspend your business and that is a very very strict teacher so I mean did that cool. Thanks yeah some stuff did that then. It got probably the the job which influenced me the most is. I got this weird job. Quick quick question. I struggle with Sir Twenty three and you're in in this resort town right. Yes resort town SORTA. It's halfway between Vail and steamboat which means the middle of nowhere but it's close to both and you're twenty three twenty three and you've got this kind of cool big job. How did you balance your personal life and your professional life at that point in your life because I've actually I'm not going to lead lead the question. What did you do. How how much did you date. How much fun were you having how much fun where you having a great thing it. Was it was a really good lesson. I had a lot of fun and So don't get me wrong. Because everyone was working. There was twenty three going go ahead and so and and it was the Alpha of the twenty three and that was leverage. That was the bad part though was that these guys it was on the banks of the Colorado River so they'd all go. Hey we're all going rafting going. I've gotTa do you know inventory. I gotta how to pay these responsibilities and it kind of really was painful. So I got a lot of funds. I'm not bemoaning it but there was this realization that there's a different level level of responsibility that I had but I did meet my wife there and so amazing did come out of come out of that go ahead all right so the come come back east and got this how old must've been only twenty four quick twenty-five two years in Colorado two and a half years okay keep going so come back and get this crazy job basically as gopher to the CEO of Music Publishing Company. I think my title was like a I chief of staff or something looking at all. These guys is like literally my so far. I just want everybody who's listening to you right now. I'm sorry mark I'm taking episode over listening. I just I don't know if you've been listening but I think I could see some of you in the room putting the pieces together my core so my advice is to do and like manage and like like actually make and sell it and then or and or if you want to be somebody go work as an Admin a gopher chief of staff for somebody. That's extremely at a very high level each shit. It is basically what I'm saying. Basically is what I'm saying and I'm just GonNa make it simple here so far. What I've heard from mark is the first two things didn't his career was jumped in full throttle. Sacrifice is what he was saying couldn't have as much fun dealt with all that was practical and then and then have the humility. Let's say one more time for all the people out there that love being a CEO had the humility to go from being the lead dog of something like that in that ecosystem going and being a gopher a chief of staff of whatever about the here and I just want to remind all of you this all lead for him to be the CO founder and CEO of Netflix so it's such a I'm so glad you called a little time out on that one because that that is the the piece of advice I give to every single person who goes.
Talking to Machines: LISP and the Origins of A.I.
"Garry Kasparov lost a match to the computer program program deep blue. It was a pivotal moment in machine intelligence for some it was an existential crisis a challenge to the supremacy of human intellect but for the technologists of the world this was a milestone of another kind a leap forward in the arena of artificial intelligence a sign that their dream of truly intelligent machine might not be so crazy after all a machine that can think remains the Dream News and quite a few startling breakthroughs away. How do we get to that point though what breakthroughs led up to Casper Roth's famous defeat and where did we go from there throwing it Barak and this this is command line heroes unoriginal podcast from red hat all season long. We're exploring the mysteries of programming languages uncovering uncovering their history and their potential this episode we zoom in on artificial intelligence. What language do you use news. When you're tech has a mind of its own how are programming languages help us get to that deep blue moment and way beyond the question of what language can work best with a thinking machine is something we've been tackling for more than half a century and so our story begins way back back in the nineteen forties when the term. Ai Hadn't even been coined. We think back act the end of World War Two. There's this sense that technology was how allies won the war there was this optimism that technology could accomplish anything a whole generation believed in the power of computing and out of that generation comes the godfather of artificial intelligence John McCarthy. He's brilliant mathematician who radically shook up the way we talk to our machines. I wanted to know about the origins of his his ideas and how that paradigm shift came about. I mean for starters when McCarthy and his peers were imagining the future of intelligent machines uh-huh. What exactly did they imagine wow. That's a good question. I got talking with Colin Garvey. He's a historian in the Science Games and Technology Studies Department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute here. Some of our chat so McCarthy is remarkably keble kind of reticent about proposing exactly what it's going to look like for example. He has probably his most famous program that was actually never implemented but it's kind of thought piece was the advice taker and so the advice taker was written written up in one thousand nine hundred sixty. McCarthy in a paper called programs with common sense and it starts off you think the advice taker is probably a robot that will learn and that's his intention right. It's kind of a domestic robot. It could take advice you say no. You're doing doing that wrong. You know do it this way and it'll understand what you mean helpful. It'd be helpful. The whole goal of the advice taker is to drive from his desk to the airport port basically formalized his notion of what the advice taker robot should do which is apparently drive him to the airport He formalized it in to a series of logical statements that it would need to infer about what needs to to happen in the current situation to turn the current situation into the desired situation right so he formalizes is this kind of a pseudo code we'd call it now and so this is actually where lisp originates as well and and then in the next few years lisp comes out as his implementation her his language for implementing it. McCarthy's he's Lisp language was a game changer. It would help a machine understand not only commands but a common sense logic. What McCarthy discovered was that he could write conditional expressions code that embodied rules rather than just blunt commands in fact there were a bunch of major programming breakthroughs with Lisp conditionals garbage collection recur. Shen and lots more lisp used lists for both code and data a simple change with profound effects. All this opened the gateway for an entire field that McCarthy himself dubbed artificial intelligence chills. It was a language paradigm shift imagine speaking to a machine without giving it every particular of information imagine inviting that machine to infer and reason through his list language McCarthy hope to give a kind of intelligence to the machine okay back to to my chat with Collin Garvey refined earlier attempts at writing a high level computer language interesting because that was going to be my next question was about the relationship relationship between Lisp and is so it's almost like that. I idea of what I could do that. Advice machine was the beginning winning. It sounds like off. Tell me more about that relationship between Lisbon. Ai Sure so one of the things that these early AI folks were up against against was that they're doing programming with punch cards and probably these early guys knew how to program at the level full of machine code and that's very time consuming and difficult and so you needed higher level languages that you could instruct in ways that were closer informed to human language so something like Lisp gives instructions in literally a list of and that's where the name comes from list based processing in a list of instructions that are much closer to I mean the human language in the sense that they are basically logical propositions so if you could read formal logic you can basically look ed a lisp program or any of the logic based programming languages and have a much better sense of what's happening in the code so this really helped yeah. I mean it helped us take our ideas of artificial intelligence and actually were toward them. Make them happen which makes me wonder what intelligence even means during that time periods of we go back to the fifties at that point what was intelligence how did that. How did people even define that back then because Lewis was first developed for the IBM seven four which does really just one thing at a time so it doesn't really sound very intelligent yeah. How do people think about intelligence at that time so this is of course incredibly controversial right they have very narrow concepts as far as I'm concerned from a social perspective but yeah at the time for instance the ability to perform form of behavior that would be described as intelligent is kind of the catch all definition but these guys are really mathematicians mathematicians and logisticians and computer programmers. I mean to be crass. The ability to play chess was considered indefinite sign of intelligence and of this early this early generation of people was much more willing to sidestep. This is question and say well. The philosophers have not agreed on what intelligence is but if we make a computer that complete chess. I think we can all agree. That's intelligent college. It was starting blaze anyway. Baby Steps McCarthy had a dream that machines could be intelligence people on have common common sense and essentially you could talk to them and he set about creating a program language to make that that dream a reality that became lisp and it captured certain aspects of human thought and especially logical Michael Thought and made it possible to use computers to amplify or extend those features cheers of thought so from a mathematician perspective. He was well on his way to realizing intelligent machinery
How ugly will Canadas 2019 election get?
"End. Up next so schedule Indians are going to make a larger rebate than on Tehran's. Are I get that it has to do with how fuel intensive the local economy is, but that's we real hard to explain to the people who are getting less of a rebate. There's a traitor in all of us direct invest with Scotia. I trade become a new client, and you could get up to fifteen hundred dollars cash or three hundred free trades when you open and fund a new account conditions apply. See Scotia trade dot com for details. The carbon tax is a really interesting issue to me because you would think it would split down the lines of well, we have to do something about climate change. But I'm more interested in if it splits down party lines like is this something that we're seeing conservatives lineup against because I know some conservatives have run on platforms for carbon taxes, we went through an interesting moment is a country where the conservative leader of the largest province Patrick Brown. When he was leading the on -tario conservatives was going to accept the arguments for carbon taxation was going to cooperate with federal efforts on the matter and then use the revenues to pay for the rest of his platform. And and and every conservative Ontario, said sure like fine. Whatever will, you know. It's a little weird. We're not used to being pro carbon-tax. But he he's leader at off we go. And then when he was elected from the party for very much, different reasons, he was replaced by a leadership campaign where every single candidate rejected his vision of the carbon plan and a lot of people who were. Willing to run. So, you know, rod Phillips, the the environment ministry around -tario is an old acquaintance of mine. He was perfectly happy to run as a candidate for Patrick Brown. He was essentially recruited by Patrick Brown is a candidate to run on a platform that included carbon taxes now, he's the environment minister of Ontario. He's taking the feds to court, and he is he canceling cap and trade carbon tax every effective measure to reduce emissions. How you and something like that? There's a lot in politics that resembles sports more than it resembles philosophy. And if you're if you're wearing the blue jersey, then you're going to do with the blue jersey says an an and if that changes than than I found people be remarkably agile, he's a conservative because this is this is what being a conservative means this year. Yeah. Does that cost you later on because that's something that's gonna come back. Come back on them so blatant. Yeah. I have to say that it. Sure, not guaranteed the cost you. I mean every federal liberal in the country was against free trade in. In nineteen eighty eight. And then all for it by nineteen Ninety-three, right? When an McClellan was the Justice minister of Canada, she stood up in the house of Commons and promised the Canadian people that extending same-sex benefits as part of the public sector employees working conditions would not lead to gay marriage in Canada. She said, look, we're not this. Nobody's talking about gay marriage. And then four years later they were talking about gay marriage. And and McClellan was fine with it. You know, politics often doesn't involve a sort of a stately and orderly evolution towards a higher level of of of Justice in awareness. It often just involves swallowing yourself whole and hoping that nobody notices that's a good way to put it as we get into the actual campaign, which starts in January. How important is it going to be for the liberal party to kind of articulate the message that that you said is working for them on the carbon tax, but you kind of have to explain it. And I wonder if as the campaign starts and kind of slogans get shorter and punchier. And simpler, if we have any idea if they're going to be able to do that I for one very curious to see how this works out. Look in some ways, the the liberal planets simplicity itself, if you burn fuel you will pay a tax that is assessed based on scientists best guess about about how much carbon you're putting into the air. And it's the same as a gasoline tax that we pay now it's the same as all sorts of consumption taxes taxes for smoking, and so on and then the the extra little bit of it is the revenues that are raised in a province from that tax ninety percent of them. Go back to people to individuals through the income tax system. And because that includes revenues that are raised from business, but don't go back to business the revenues that are raised from business. Also, go to individuals most people are going to get more in rebates than they paid out in carbon taxes up mostly at the at the at the gas pump and on their fuel bills. And I think that's a pretty basically easy thing for people to understand. But there's a there's a lot of weird kind of quirks to it. I if you live in one province your rebate is bigger than if you. Live in another. So Cisco Indians are going to make a larger rebate than on Tehran's. Are I get that? It has to do with how fuel intensive the local economy is, but that's we real hard to explain to the people who are getting less of a rebate. It's not even obvious to someone who lives in gap. No on the, you know, ten miles from parliament hill on the Quebec side why they're not getting any rebate at all. But somebody lives on the interior side is and you can say, well, it's kind of obvious it's because Quebec is cooperating with the carbon tax Ontario's fighting against it. So that the feds have to set up their own, gene. But look already I'm I'm a couple blocks down the road. So that was gonna stop complex explanations of complexity that are not easy to use as a rebuttal to simple things. Like, why are they taxing every time? We get in our car. You know? Yeah. Why does Joe get a better rebate than Jane? This is not going to be an easy argument to win. It seems to me. I would we talk to you back in in August or early September about Hamish Marshall, you told us kind of the thought carbon tax was going to be. V hill that this election would be fought on you still think that. Yeah. Certainly one of the big ones both sides can imagine a situation where it's not in their interest to talk about this all the time. I'm struck by how few public comments, Catherine McKenna. The environment minister has made Ian detailed defense of this plan and of the philosophy behind it. She tweets a lot of feel good stuff on Twitter, but she's not easy to get an interview with and often in the interview, she doesn't say a lot. So the the liberals plainly think that they win they're likely to win on this. If they don't tire people out by always talking ear off about it. And similarly, I can imagine the conservative saying, you know, we can get these guys on general taxes taxation on general cost of living on affordability on not getting along. With our American cousins, there's a million issues that they can go after the the the the liberals on that may be cleaner lines of attack. But I just think it's in these people the the liberals believe themselves to be the party of climate virtue. And the conservatives be. Believe themselves to be the only people who understand the real nature of Canada as a resource producing center. And I don't think they'll be able to. I don't think I don't think MIR tactics will be enough to keep them from resisting going at each other hammer and Tong on this. I just think they can't resist a fight on this issue. I've heard that the election campaign itself is going to be nasty, but honestly going at each other hammering tongs over the merits of a carbon tax seems like a pretty civil disagreement. Do you have a sense as we head into twenty nineteen? How nasty the campaign will be. I think they're always pretty nasty. I mean, I it's interesting, George W George H W Bush, the elder of the two Bush presidents just passed away. And I read all of the eulogies that said he was such a gentleman in such a fine fellow right? I remember the the nineteen eighty eight presidential election, the one that he ended up winning when he succeeded from Ronald Reagan, and he ran against Michael Dukakis who was an academic who is a very ineffective fellow. And that campaign got so nasty about prison. Furloughs for convicted, rapists. And and and now long forgotten issues since then that Newsweek magazine had a cover illustration drawn by Garry Trudeau who was the the guy who did Doonesbury showing Bush Dukakis, mud fighting mud wrestling, you know, and with Bush's cartoon hands curled around dukakis's throat campaigns are always way nastier than we think failed. The it's it's become a bit of a cliche on parliament hill before every campaign. Everyone says well, this one's going to be very orderly. And you know, we can predict how this is going to happen. And then somebody in power starts to lose or somebody. Who's got a shot at power starts to see it slip away from them. And this is their entire career. The stakes are so high that look I've never seen a boring campaign because I don't think I don't think the people in it can afford to have the boring, and they're so convinced that the other side is wrong for the country that the that each side feels permitted to say just anything about the other side. And so there's no self restraint. And I'm not sure this next campaign is going to be worse than any of those. But you know, we always kid ourselves that they're going to be really straightforward and. They always turn out to be just the damnedest thing you ever. So that's one reason why I stay in this game.
