"Jeff Katz News, radio. W RVs. Oh, there's another example of why I have absolutely positively no respect. For the ABC news operation at this points, right, whoever that talking head from ABC once Goes out of his way to claim there were some who accused Melania Trump. Of off copying some of Ah Michelle Obama's speech. The last time Melania Trump spoke to the Republican National Convention, right, That's his whole story. Wasn't ever demonstrated One way or the other, but nonetheless, Okay. But don't you think that same level of journalistic integrity should have been visited upon Joe Biden? Because Joe Biden just the other night in his carefully wrote rehearsed, I would dare say fixed in postproduction acceptance speech. Seemed to have been list lifted almost wholesale from the late Jack Layton. Jack Layton was the leader of the new Democrat Party in Canada. That is the officially Socialist Party as opposed to the Liberal Party, which is only unofficially socialist. So after Biden speech, it was trending on Twitter, and we know that is the most important place for everything. And it was all over social media. Hey. Canadians, right. These are not Americans these air, not those those nasty evil Republicans who we know just hate Joe Biden Kamala Harris, Because we're bad People know these air Canadians. There's nobody more polite than Canadians. Just ask them. I mean, they won't tell you that. But they are. They're just painfully polite. And Canadians were all over Social media saying, Hey, anybody watch the Joe Biden speech? Didn't that sound exactly like Jack Clayton speech? And yet, I I know this is gravy. I didn't hear our ABC news Folks give that a single solitary second of coverage. Now, Look, I want to be fair. I'm sure That it was simply an oversight and ended Burton Mist Ake. They were probably they were working really hard on it. And and then something else happened like well, something And it drew their attention away. But As your humble servant. I thought that I would let you know about that. I think that's important now. My friend John Reed has ah. Been in the process of traveling through The Heartland. And I think he's back in Richmond. Now ready for the remainder of the Republican National Convention, John Thanks for being here. Thank you. I'm almost there. Two hours.

"I've built up the drama as much as possible. Who was Jack Layton? And why would the president the Vice president's speech writers be associating with a parting letter from Mr Leyton of the NDP of Canada? Good evening to you? Talking even John Well again. I have no idea how it happened That that Ah phrase from Jack Layton was almost exactly replicated by Joe Biden. And I suppose it could be a coincidence, But it's a little unlikely. Um, in terms of who he was and how they might find him sympathetic figure. Hey, he was a leader in this country. You You have two main parties, the liberals and conservatives on then there's a third party that is essentially a left of Centre Party of not extreme left. But it would. It would qualify today as being in that Biden Sanders area, and I mean that it's so democratic, you know, anti Communist Party? Certainly there's no question of that, but but you know well to the left and on the periodically. It is the third party in the case. Usually even the fourth party because the the Nationalists in Quebec periodically put up a lot of in peace, Federal and then they recede again. But But Jack Layton had the distinction of being the only leader in the history of that party to lead them in the second place in an election, So they were the official opposition second only to the then conservative government of Stephen Harper. And the reason this happened was that he completely outmaneuvered the Liberals in Quebec. I've got a huge Quebec vote. It was a complete freakish circumstance in electoral history, and they lost most of those. Most of those members of Parliament in the following election after jacket died, but but he staged a coup. What amounted to a perfectly legitimate tactical to buy by convincing Quebec voters if they wanted to know if they retired. Of the two old parties. He was the one to vote for, and and he essentially offer them a semi separatist agenda that they that they embrace. Not because they cared about electing Jack Layton Prime minister, which was not going to happen, but they wanted to send a message to the joint of political Establishment of liberals and conservatives. He didn't come second in the popular vote. The Liberals did, but he had that concentration and come back and he knew quit back. Well. His father was a Cabinet minister. Potentially in Quebec. Andi any spoke French? Well, so you know, he knew them and they knew him and he was running against the end of the other party leaders were all English language Canadians who spoke French, but not like he did. So he had a specific appeal. At a precise time that worked for him. He took advantage of it. And and he was generally ah, popular person on Damien. I knew him For many years there was a city councilor in Toronto and so is his way, And Andi was he was perfectly agreeable man personally, but he was, you know, I don't want to overstate it. But he was in American terms. He would be hey, would be pretty close to Bernie Sanders Woods, and that's you know, that's Very unusual in the United States. But it's pretty unusual for party leader in this country also, so I can see why, with the Biden camp Ah, kind of, you know, joining ranks with the Sanders group and trying to promote a unity Ah, program in the Democratic Party to the left of where it has bean. In some ways, Jack Waking would be a logical figure to look at it. And maybe as mere surmise. I obviously don't know anything about it. But it may be that some of The former vice president's advisers were looking around and other Social Democrats and so called progressives and other Democratic countries and would come across the most successful. Ah, leader of Faction of politics in the history of Canada. Was Jack lied because he got his party and this is the official opposition. Mr Layton's leather in the National Post is quoted as saying. My friends love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. And the vice president's words for love is more powerful and hate. Hope is more powerful than fear and light is more powerful than dark. I can put it down as a coincidence. The reason I asked you is because the vice president's speech was otherwise quite free of policy. And so therefore it was of interest that the national Post seized on this linkage between a man whom you say is of the left because Mr Biden has been at pains To both be sympathetic and inviting to the left of his party without actually speaking aloud the words I mentioned that again because your measure of this campaign from Toronto is fresh perspective for May you help me understand this If if I listen to the vice president's speech again, I'm certain the major policy advance he has is that the country is going to be nationally masked and that he is going to get scientists together and solve. The virus. He has also said subsequent to his speech in an interview that if needed to protect the United States from the virus, he would shut down the economy. Those are surprising policy statements hinged upon the virus. Do you measure that the vice president can ride his virus opinion all the way to Election Day without mentioning the other policies? That he's that he is now sympathetic. Two on the left. No, I don't think he can. And furthermore, I don't think he can ride this one to victory either. Now, if if for some reason, I can't imagine what would happen. But if for some reason, uh, fatality spiked up, uh, to to, to put increased pressure on the confidence and morale of the public and and and make them more fretful whenever the danger Ah, then that would change circumstances. But if the president trend continues of a sapling effect, especially if it's Accelerated by the announcement. Ah, yesterday, I guess of the application of this plasma, then I I think I think the president has a winning argument that you've got to fight both battles concurrently, do everything you can to protect the 20% or so of the population That's vulnerable to the virus while doing everything possible to get everyone else back to work, eh? So they can take care of their families and get everything. Everything. Up and functioning and and, ah is to some degree both parties and all the whole country or hostage to to how the you know how things develop on the medical front. But the present trend appears to be in the international trend appears to me that with reasonable precautions, it is a declining fatality rate. And you know, like anything else we get better dealing with. It s O. I would say that that three idea of trying to sell a complete shutdown. Until there literally is no more Corona virus is nonsense and and and the public would have to be in a much more terrorized condition. But I think they will be despite the best efforts of Trump's enemies from the media for such a policy to be to be approved by the country.

"What's the What's the problem? Don't you know is he's Joe Biden. He can plagiarize anything He wants to plagiarize and nobody's going to call him on it because you know, Democrats and media And I repeat myself. That's the That's the problem. So another plagiarism scandal for Joe Biden going backto 1987 in politics when he was running it now? And now in 2020 old habits, die hard old Joe Biden. Poor, poor fellow. Love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear and light is more powerful than dark. I I might say darkness. Maybe I might, but you know, but that's Joe Biden and then you find this Canadian On the Canadian Jack Layton is his name had words that were eerily and remarkably similar to what Joe Biden uttered in his big speech. And even Canada is like, Hey, come on, give us their speech back, right? All right, But that's okay because he's Joe Biden and the news media simply won't cover it. They just won't talk about the job. Biden plagiarism because They're corrupt her on his side, and they're not going to tell the truth there. Just going Because Joe Biden he's got a higher I Q than you and Ah Joe Biden. It's all right. All right. Listen, lots of lots of good stuff to get to, including the boat. Joe Biden, Joe Biden this and Joe Biden. Let's actually let's get some backup from Joe Biden Audio from the Big David Muir Robin Roberts interview. Where did we leave off Michael? It was We were at we had used 22. All right, Let's go, Tio. Let's go there, and Robin Roberts and Joe Biden did you feel pressure to choose a black woman as you? These are the hard hitting because they said, they explained upfront. That there were no holds barred, and they could ask the hard questions. They want tough questions. Mr Vice President. You made it clear early on that you were going to select a woman to be your running, mate. You select a woman of color. Did you do that to rally your base? Did you feel pressure? To select a black woman. No, I didn't feel pressure selective black woman, But what I do think is that the government should look like people. What do the people look like? The government should look like the people. So that's why you have a septic Jin Eri in white guy as the Democrat frontman for those traveling road show. Is that what I'm supposed to understand supposed to look like the people because it's the The people here is from MSNBC, Shauna Thomas, talking about this very same subject, as a matter of fact, is them ways her selection is a result of black women and black people exerting the political power that they have in this country. Now, you know, I looked back at the Washington Post opinion piece from seven black women who basically were like Joe Biden has these black woman and that was, I think, written back in May, but In some ways, and maybe I shouldn't say this, but in some ways, go bite and got boxed in. He got boxed in by history. He got boxed in by historical choice. He got boxed in by people saying, Hey, by the way, we're here. We've got some power and we have a couple of demands. Power and demands you see, and the power and the women. They're burning our cities and attacking and injuring hundreds and hundreds of police and sacking and looting and the arson and the smashed windows. You know the Democrat Party whole thing there. And she's saying no was made quite clear by the Democrat Party. You will choose a black woman and you know the hedge a little because she's both Indian and black, Jamaican and Indian. And But that's okay David Mirror because no questions were out of bounds and because there were no holds barred Hey, did go in, and he said there were these debate moments. He didn't pursue it. Of course, where you called Joe Biden are racist or seem to suggest that he's a racist. You're one of those little girls with the busting and he opposed integration. And he's a racist and all this time, but then they never really go anywhere with it. You remember that moment, Senator Harris here on stage talking about being a little girl who was being bust and you sort of The vice president's words about working with segregationist senators that they were hurtful and personal. I think the American people want to know that these aren't debate moments. These aren't political points that when you say they were hurtful and personal, you mean that. And so I'm curious what the vice president has said to you. Since then, that made you think, Okay, I'm okay with it so I can join this ticket. You know what? Okay, I'm okay with this. I can join this ticket. That was the That was the pressing question. Not here's the video of you saying these really nasty things about Joe Biden being racist. It's just a T up. To slap down. That's the whole point. Right? And doubtless they had seen comma Law on Stephen Colbert, which was an extension last week on CBS. Late Night, an in Kind contribution. To the Democrat Party. Stephen Colbert had all of the cast of characters from the Democratic National Convention on his show. After they were on at the and Camelot went on Stephen Colbert and he asked her kind of the same question. In those debates. You landed haymakers. Joe Biden. And now you guys seem to be pals.

"The chicks on the right show where the chicks I Mok. I am Dacey Hello, Producer of Candle. Also hear member When that big tell, all came out by Mary Trump the president's niece. I do remember arranged me so I'd remember. Well, there's more. There's eso. Apparently, she has just released 15 hours of secretly recorded conversations with President Trump's older sister. The judge, the retired federal judge, Maryanne Trump, Barry. And this is rather incredible because it sounds like Mary and Trump is not a fan of her brothers. Apparently, the audio recordings show that he she has some things to say about him being phony that he is cruel. That all he wants to do is appeal to his base, and he has no principles. What else did she say that he? She complained about the tweets. She says that he lies. There's a lot of Accusations that she makes against her brother. Okay, So merry is the daughter of Mary? You know, she's the daughter of Ah, different brother. Okay, So Marianne is her aunt, then? Right? Okay. And what's amazing facing the No one's talking about the fact that the most amazing part about this story is that this is a person who secretly recorded her aunt in order to get Dura for a book that she was writing against her uncle. Actually, that I thought about that, too. It's it's not. I would hope that people would think that This is Yeah. So this is a family member who's like Yeah, Dude is the worst. She's on the down low, like audio taping people. I mean, what this is really sick, beheads gross. It's gross, and she's a psychologist or psychiatrist. Is she that? I think she's a clinical psychologist. She's a clinical psychologist. Yeah, well, what can we diagnose her way? Well, I mean, she's very troubled. There's no question that thing she is clearly troubled because and you know now, I suppose we're goingto have to await Teo get a response from the sister because I would think she would be enraged at being secretly recorded first of all, but now there's going to be obviously, if there wasn't already there's gonna be a giant rift between her and President Trump. Because these are some really vicious comments. The may add their pretty bad. So if you read it, because there's cursing and also your stuff. We can't stay on the air. Now. The White House's excusing it by saying this, you know, this is just a regular. This is like normal family drama. This is normal sibling rivalry. This is nothing new. Whatever they're, they're brushing off, and maybe that's the right approach. But I mean the niece Maryanne Trump is I'm sorry. Mary Trump is really She's just a giant troublemaker. Yeah, she's awful. She's really, really awful. She's a miserable human being. She's miserable. I wonder. Does anybody in the family like her Because I'm going to go with? No, I'm going to go right there with you. I'm going to go into that No room because I feel like nobody does An, um All right. So now there are new plagiarism accusations against Joe Biden, so he apparently really, really likes relying on words that he or other people have said in the past, And so now Canadian media is saying that some of the things that he said in the DNC last week were uncannily similar to words spoken by Jack Layton, who is the leader of Canada's left wing New Democratic Party, who apparently wrote The letter back in 2011 when he was dying, actually saying, and I quote my friends love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair, which is very, very, very similar to what Biden said during the DNC. So what s so maybe he thought if I looked to Canada, but it was a A won't notice. You know this is it. It's over. It's over there. Over there. Kid plays a so they won't notice and people notice and can't At least they notice in Canada are media is not going to pick up on it because they need to care about the fact that he plagiarized in 1987, right. You know, it doesn't matter. He dropped out in 87 for plagiarism. He's just ridiculous is it's completely ridiculous. Absolutely great. So, yeah. So now the plagiarism accusations are coming back to haunt him in a brand new way. I know that. And you know that I have been rather pessimistic. Yeah, this election. You've got your pessimism, pants. I dio. They are not plaid or Paisley. They're not. They're polka dotted. Cause that's so your style. I mean, if it's not, it's right. If it's not gingham, y'all, it's going to be polka dots for her. I know her. I do have my polka dot pessimism pants on when it comes to the election because of all the stupid people. There are so many. I know there's a lot of dumpy. We see them. So I have to say it was really encouraging to find out that new Gingrich not only thinks that Trump is gonna win, but he thinks it's going to be a massive victory. Take a listen to him from an appearance that he made with Waters World predicted It will be a dramatically bigger victory than people currently expect. Wow, because Well, first off, you see it beginning to build now, Ugo. There's a pole just out this week in Minnesota that shows him tied up with biting in Washington state in the primaries and Republicans came roaring back. Everywhere except Seattle and have done dramatically better than they did in 18. In special elections. We've been doing very, very well. And I think I just talked to a neighbor of State Assembly candidate yesterday who was running in a suburban county just outside New York City. Oh, it was a Hillary Clinton county by about 16 points. Trump's now ahead in the count, and he said, part of the violence that people are watching. You know, Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue be trashed. And they're watching games starting to come into their town and there said, You know, I don't want any more of this. So if you I mean, he sounds pretty positive. Yeah, I mean, when he says it's dramatic, it's going to be a dramatically bigger victory. Yeah, and you have a lot of people were like you. I really want this. You have all that this the upper class suburban white moms who are like I'm so for Joe and then wait until the violence hits their neighborhoods, and we'll see what they think then. Are they going to still be all for it? They still gonna be offer like the Democrats. Socialists who are not. They haven't even talked about the Van City even talked about it last week, they said Word zero. They just mentioned peaceful protests right there. Not peaceful. No, it's a complete their complete animals right now taking over these Democrats, cities that refused to lead exactly. They refused to lead anyway, so that was kind of encouraging, right. This is this is what he's saying. I don't know what this is. This is noot. It's one. I mean, is one dude but as one dude, but I thought that was, you know, least some positive. It's super positive. I liked when he said, and this wasn't part of that particular clip that we played. But one of the things that he said is we don't have to want to make stuff up. We don't have to invent some post office phony scandal. We just have to tell the truth about how radical these people are, and they are and it's likely our and that's in stark contrast to what we said. You know. Last week Democrats Or having toe lie or mischaracterized the words that come out of Trump's mouth just to make him look bad. When if if he is really that bad, they shouldn't have to make up stuff. Yeah. They could just point to whatever example they want a point and manipulate and used the media as a propaganda tool. You're absolutely right. Interesting.

"jack layton" Discussed on The Big Story
"It's never good when critics can sum up your performance as a politician with a famous sports. Blooper yeah they use a good Canadian analogy. It was like having a breakaway on an open net and missing the run pass Spiel. And that's why despite yes. Increasing the Conservative Party seat count and yes despite forming a strong opposition and taking a liberal majority down to a minority Conservative Party leader. Andrew Scheer is still fighting for his job shear survived a caucus meeting last week. That ran for hours only to emerge and meet the press and walk right into a perfect example of exactly what like many in his party. Think cost them the election issues like same sex marriage. You are still not giving personal view so my question for you. Do you believe that being gazed. Then we made it very clear during the election in the last few months and years. Our Party is inclusive we believe in the quality the rights of all we are. My personal opinion is that I respect. The rights of every single was an answer that try to please both sides and ended up leasing no one and it was a perfect picture of the division within the Conservative Party right. Now we'll sheer your move further towards social conservative issues to save his job even if it costs him the next election is he willing to put his personal no beliefs in front of voters knowing that many of them will never trust him unless he does and can the Conservative Party as a whole unite around a direction. They could help them win. What should in theory be a very winnable next election and an election? That could come sooner than they think Jordan. He throwing this big story. Stephen Maher is a contributing leading editor at Maclean's Stephen Are you doing. I'm doing very well and for those of us which unfortunately doesn't include me. Who are able to kind of tune out for you bet after the election can you Explain what happened to Andrew share in the wake of the liberal minority win. A lot of people were very disappointed in the conservative. SORTA party that. The party didn't do better not long after the election. Peter Mackay at a forum in Washington said that Mr Scherr are had Missing empty next basically years ago hockey analogy a widespread feeling In in the Conservative Party. That you're was was not able to do as well as the party could have particularly when you when you look at some of the vulnerabilities of liberals I mean. This is a campaign that started with news it was about A AN RCMP inquiry into the essence Alaba fair and it was then followed with the Brown face and black face incidents so trudeau was gullible and the conservative campaign was not able to take advantage of those vulnerabilities tell me about last week's caucus meetings specifically what do we we know about what happened in there. Well we know that lasted seven and a half hours which is a long meeting The the first two and a half half hours were taken up with sort of procedural business involving of something called the Reform Act which was brought in by Michael Chong and the previous government as a way of empowering backbenchers and there was a key vote where the conservative caucus They had stand up. It wasn't a private ballot a private Secret ballot then just stand up and vote to give themselves the power to remove the leader so it wasn't a vote to to actually remove him but to maintain that theoretical power. I'm told that only eighteen people stood up. Certainly fewer than twenty so sheer sort of survived survived dot task. As I as everyone sort of expected he would write. MTV's even those who would like to get rid of share would be reluctant to do so in a caucus revolt because they would then be accused of having ignored the will of Party members who ooh selected sheer right. That makes sense. Yeah and it's true if say decapitated him in a caucus meeting then people could say well. I voted for him. You know. Why are you ignoring the membership and there is a mechanism in April and a lot of everything that's happening of the Conservative Party between now and the convention in an April is going to be geared around that whether she can get enough votes to survive he likely needs around seventy percent of the votes of delegates and and there are a lot of people in the party? I think more than thirty percent who thinks that the problems with share are not gonna get better before the next election elections. Can you try to sort of sum up the division about the problems with Andrew Scheer. Why do some people in the party? He missed the empty net. Essentially well if you look at polling it shows the Mister became less popular as Canadians. Got To know him better. which is not what I expected? What happened? I thought that Canadians would find him to be a A mild pleasant man but it turned out that as the campaign went on his disapproval numbers kept getting higher and higher. Now why is that. One thing that A lot of conservatives believe is that his is reluctant to discuss his position on same. Sex Marriage is causing a lot of problems for him the other policy. Let's see issue that caused problems at the doorsteps and particularly on Terron. Quebec is the environment the climate change policy that the Conservatives brought forward got very bad reviews the people gotta closely said that it would increase our emissions rather than reducing them in comparison to the liberal plan. And the other thing is there's I campaign mechanics at the end of the campaign. The conservative sent their troops to the wrong places. They seemed not to we know which ridings were competitive and which writings were knocked competitor that his unusual for a modern political campaign with all of the data. Ah with all the polling. It's Kinda surprising. It raises serious questions about the competence of Mr Shears team. For instance at the end of the campaign campaign. They were sending a resources to von Woodbridge. which were they were not in contention Nova Nova Scotia. where I'm from? I know that they suspend a lot of resources. Trying to get country singer. George Canyon elected in Central Nova where they did not have a realistic shot of wing. Meanwhile the the next riding riding Cumberland Colchester. They lost by five hundred votes and they didn't the troops there. So there's a there's evidence to suggest suggest that in sort of get out the vote and polling world where we're Mr Harper's parties Steven Harper's parties to be very good at this stuff that at some point the conservatives have lost the plot so you have these policy questions and then you have a sort of confidence question and then you have a kind of personality question about Mr Sheer. So so there's I think a very strong case to be made that They would likely do better with someone else. There is a counter argument that often often leaders do better on the second shot You know if you look at Jack Layton for example over multiple elections people got to know he got better rabbit and eventually you know voters decide to reward you. I don't think that's the case with share but there is a counter argument. Well I wanted to ask you specifically only about the way. The party is dealing with his personal beliefs. Because I thought you really Summed it up well Mcclain's and if you could maybe describe the dynamics wchs in the conservative party right now over What I guess has kind of been referred to as Andrew shares personal beliefs versus political right? So there's a there's there's a divide in that you have some conservatives including a lot of conservatives in Ontario and Quebec who on the subject of same sex marriage in particular you are saying. Why are we talking about this? Why can't you just tell us how you feel about it? And get past us. Because shears critics the Liberals or journalist keeps saying well. What's your personal view? And after his this very difficult caucus meeting A reporter do you think that homosexuality is a sin so while you won't go to a pride parade and he said he didn't answer the question he he won't say whether he thinks that being gay sinful. It appears that this is because does he would feel like a hypocrite. He is A serious Catholic and he does believe that this kind of behavior is sinful. And that's why like he can't go to a a pride parade. If that is correct he is out of step with Canadians. The polling shows that only about ten ten percent of Canadians now are opposed to same sex marriage. There's been an normal shifts in the last fifteen years. Since this sort of moved it became came a political prop potato When Palmer was prime minister once it was legalized? Everyone has basically got used to it. and we accepted Doug Ford went to a pride parade. All kinds of people accept this kind of community event as a way of showing support for people that is meaningful to that which is how I feel about it. Our neighbors our friends and neighbors who are L. B. Q. It's meaningful for them to have the community come out and say hey. We got your backs. Right sure won't do that so his some of his supporters are saying well. Why badgering him his personal views our personal views and it's got nothing to do with how he's run the country and that is a perspective but on the other hand if you want to become prime minister of the country can we really think? Ah Your most wrongly held. Beliefs won't influence your thinking so I'm sympathetic to the people who are suspicious of him on these questions. Can you explain like I understand the one side of the Conservative Party who must be saying like look just get modern And recognize that. This is an issue that Canadians are are settled on and let's move on but there's a force inside that party. That doesn't want him to do that. And I understand that they have their own personal beliefs. But I'm wondering what kind of political argument they can make That that sheer needs to stay and Align himself with the social conservatives so often these these these are people who are associated with the right to life movement so they're anti-abortion activists and they are increasingly powerful force in the Conservative Party of Canada and the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party and they in fact made Mr Sheer leader during the there were a couple.

"Mean listen I WanNa talk about my writing because that's on the list devonport here in Toronto it was liberal stronghold since nineteen sixty two and then Jack Layton managed to turn it orange in two thousand eleven the Liberals took it back in two thousand fifteen the question is can they hold onto these writings that have all these progressive voters that now might have some doubts about Trudeau so the bats that's a that's a writing that I'm watching clothes not just because I live but it's an indication of whether Rudo sort of sunny ways of stuck or not yeah and that's actually where Jagmeet Singh was on Wednesday so he obviously sees that there's a possibility to win that writing back to and is the same for all of those writings in it around the GTA that like belt around Toronto that is really dense in terms of population and really beneficial in terms of winning seats you need to clinch all of them or most of them if you want government so those are some of the writings where things flip around they move around a lot but there's also writings where things are incredibly close so the two closest ridings where literally your one vote would have made the difference is Edmonton Millwood's Alberta and that's the writing of energy so he One of the Cabinet Liberal cabinet minister he won in two thousand fifteen by nine who votes and he to wile okay another one elmwood trans- Kona in Winnipeg my my hometown Daniel Blakey from the MVP one by sixty one votes Oh my God they're getting closer so imagine bob so and so didn't come out right for Daniel Blakey You know that would have made a difference in him in Him Iki note that win now we're having these conversations over Thanksgiving weekend you're often sitting down with at the table with people who are not especially diehard partisans like how would you begin the conversation with them so if they were a die-hard partisan I I wouldn't bother trying to convince them I'm not sure you're going to get that done over Turkey right like me be if there was a considerable amount of wine you might get it done right but I don't think that you should spend your Thanksgiving dinner trying to convince someone to come to your side what I do think would be useful bill would be to start discussing some issues that matter to you so climate change affordability all the things we've already talked about on the podcast and try and get it sense of where the parties stand on that but I also don't think it's GonNa make sense to judge people based on what they say about those I'm an active judger people's either I see your point you're trying to get across here no I think I think one thing that people kind of complain about when they're sitting down with maybe extended family is ah about all the views the political views that they have to contend with that they don't normally have to deal with I actually think that's a good thing but you should often have to hear from people who see the world differently from you who who understand politics and policy different differently from you because that makes your understanding richer even if you don't like you know uncle Bob you just like globeop talk it's fine yeah I mean and and in some ways we are in a much better situation than in the United States there Thanksgiving isn't the same time as family members anymore because of where they're situated politically I don't think we are at that stage in this country I think we are still at a place where you can have a reason double conversation even if you are fairly entrenched in your point of view right it is is probably a marker of good things that are politics or not so so intense that we cut off family members over what one of the issues that sort of this would be a good place to start if you're sitting down and what are you start with usually like squash soup or something climate change rosy no no that's the first dish on the menu to the Turkey but climate could be using here's one that's less polarizing economy it is usually a huge driver for turnout for elections and it's generally an issue people Riyan not the approach to how you deal with the economy but everyone agrees that they wanted to do well that things could go better and they want to make sure that economic growth continuing so I know that sounds dry for Thanksgiving but I think it's a good place to start before you get to climate change well the reason I mentioned I was so climate change because to me it's interesting that you have you know climbing marching across this country where hundreds of thousands of people turned out those people will be sitting down at the Thanksgiving table some of them might not have a vote and if you are a sixteen year old who's listening to this podcast first of all thank you and second of all I think there's something to be said about convincing thing one of your parents to vote on your behalf because they they might be coming from that perspective say my vote doesn't count right now but I am not a member of this household do my concern not count I think those climate marches like really sort of set the table if you will for this for this thing sway you in one direction or another you know I would actually my question would be I'm are you going to vote for me too because I care a little bit less how you vote and a lot more right right and and here's the best reason ever for doing it other than democracy and all the things you said because it's really hard to complain the next day if you haven't done it it's really hard to have like to legitimately be able to complain about a party if you haven't even bothered to show up I will say that in in the same vein there's a there's like a predetermined result this is an incredible insertive Revolutionary Act so for the love of God vote Yes e Pi talk about it and then get ready to vote Sir.

"These criticisms of unpreparedness it didn't they didn't just come from this incident right like no he was criticized for not knowing his party's position on the Firearms Bill and having to ask a colleague for hope all in the middle of a news conference. Can you tell us whether or not your caucus behind behind you in supporting this at this point. I'm I'm just a moment to clarify time. He was confused about a recent development. In China. Canada relations will doing a TV interview. The ambassador from China accused Canada of quote white supremacy. If you were the prime minister what would you say to the Chinese Janis Right now. Sorry who accuse you of white supremacy the the ambassador knew what do you make of criticisms that he just isn't prepared and and perhaps doesn't yet have the policy Gravitas to lead the MVP to victory. I think that he has learned from from that is well. You know he probably wasn't prepared for those interviews. He didn't know what his party's policy is but so far on the campaign he he seems to have learned from that and at the events when you ask him questions about the costing about the details. He seems to have all of those answers. He hasn't been caught up like he. He has in those you know standing in front of a television not knowing what is happening that was a learning curve for him and he seems is to have move forward from that at this point. I'm thinking of like former. MVP leaders like Tom Mulcair and ED broadbent here who like I know loved loved getting into the nitty gritty policies were kind of policy wonks and house Jagmeet Singh different from them. I think when it comes to Jug neat saying he wants to use his personal experiences to talk about his policies. So it's more of a personal connection with people you know he uses the example in his dad a lot and so you kind of get the sense that he's a bit more like Jack Layton to the other to think of all the people who came before us the millions of men and women who believe so passionately in a more fair society and they refuse to give up often in the face of overwhelming on weekends.

A brawl for the climate change vote
"A year ago when people wondered which fringe party could matter in the twenty nineteen election most analysts pointed to maxim burn, as newly created People's Party of Canada. Would that party grow? Could it eat into the conservative base, when it split the vote on the right a year later that seems a little silly? The People's Party is still at just a couple of points in the polls. But it turns out there is a little party that could decide the election, it was on the other side of the spectrum sitting right where it's been all along waiting for the rest of the country to reach these same conclusion about the key issue. They're most known for that they'd reached years ago, climate change is not now I repeat that not an environmental issue. It's a massive security threat, and it needs to be dealt with by government at all levels, a security threat that requires taking bold action, one of the clear things that we've seen from, from this, despite election. I want to congratulate all the candidates who who ran in. It is a Canadians are really preoccupied about climate change are Canadians really ready to meet the green party, where they've been living all these years sure every poll shows support for the party is rising, but luck rising is relative. When you were as low in the polls as the greens typically are in federal elections. So even if that general support is there will it translate to results. Will it translate to writings, one can it make a difference on election night? And if it does at whose expense, welcome to the fight for the climate vote. I'm Jordan heath Rollings. And this is the big story, Cormac mcsweeney is the parliament hill. Reporter for city news. And for the Rogers radio brands and also for us iconic. Hey, how's it going? It is going really well. I'm hoping that you can kind of parse this brewing fight on the left side of the political spectrum right now for us. It's a remarkable dynamic right now months to go before the election were seeing votes evaporate for both the liberals and the New Democrats, and they're all shifting green, you know, the old saying it ain't easy being green. Well, it's pretty easy right now, because things are looking up for Elizabeth may and her party. We've got the greens polling at probably the best that they've ever pulled that federally some polls have them up at around twelve percent, which is huge. Because back in two thousand fifteen the greens were, I think less than five percent of the vote. So they've more than doubled their voting base in the lead up to the. Twenty nine thousand nine fall election. So they're firing on all cylinders right now. And the liberals and New Democrats are wondering what the heck to do to make sure that they keep those voters on their sides. But also, not only that steel voters from the other progressive parties to try and make sure that they can secure some sort of victory, and try and stop the conservatives who are also firing on all cylinders right now. So it's a it's a heck of a fight on the left as the conservatives continue to gain momentum. And it's going to be interesting to see what happens is there. Anything concrete, you can point to we've talked a couple times on this podcast, most notably. When they had a chance in P of the sort of, general affection. The greens are seeing in the rise in the polls. But is there anything concrete, you can point to that might be driving people moving to consider the greens? Some of this is based on stats and polls. And others is based sort of anecdotally. But I think what we're seeing is a few. Different things here that is just creating this perfect scenario for the green party. One is the fact that climate change and the concerns around climate change on a broader national scale or finally, catching up with what the green party has been preaching for years and years. And that is, we need to take action to protect the environment and protect our earth, and Canadians are now really catching up to the point where this is becoming one of the biggest issues seen nationally among the voting public that action needs to be taken and serious action at that. That's one thing one aspect of it. Is that Canadians are catching up with the concerns for the greens? But the other aspect all of this is that we're seeing kind of a collapse and a failure, if you will from the liberals and NDP to take a look at the new democrat side of things. Jug, meet sing failing to gain traction is since taking over the party leadership. We've seen the end EP. Of fallen support. He's struggled to get the attention that he was hoping to get. There was a lot of excitement around. Jug. Meet sing in the hope that he would be this charismatic dynamic young leader that would really help vault the end EP back to the level that we saw with Jack Layton that has not happened at all. And he's, he's struggled in a number of interviews as well where he's been accused of being too vague on certain issues or possibly flip flopping on others. And so while they knew Democrats are struggling the liberals have had problems of their own Justin Trudeau back in two thousand fifteen was able to unite the progressives behind him. He stole from green supporters and end EP supporters, and some conservatives and, and really built up this, this perfect sort of momentum around him during that long campaign in two thousand fifteen that helped vault him from third him in the liberals from third party status to government, and it never happened before. But since taking office, a lot of the promises and a lot of the things that he was. Elected on have created problems for him, just looking at things like the promise to change the way, we elect, our MP's read. There was a lot of hope that, that, that would actually happen in never ended up happening. The liberals have had other scan whole such as SNC laflin and the, the more recent problems of the Mark Norman case, those are eating away at liberal support as well. And on top of all of that. I mean with environment with the environment being a big issue in the eyes of Canadians, some are pointing out, what people, some people see as a contradiction of the liberal position while they say, we need to take serious action on climate change. We'd need this carbon tax. Here's the government buying the trans mountain pipeline to make sure that the oil from our oil sands, is being sent off to other markets something a lot of people who are very passionate about the environment disagree with. And so you have a lot of troubles for the liberals and the MVP right now. And a lot of progressives who don't know where to turn because they're dissatisfied with what they see from what is traditionally been the two left or left of center parties. And now they're looking to the greens as a possible, viable option. And so you have this perfect scenario, as I said, where climate change is becoming more of an important issue in the eyes of Canadians, the traditional parties that Canadians have known for decades are not satisfying, a lot of these younger voters. And they're deciding you know what? Maybe whether it's a protest vote or legitimately giving the greens shot. They're definitely looking at the greens with a lot of serious consideration. When they look at them, especially for those people for whom climate is a major issue. What do they see exactly what gives the green party? The credibility on climate to. They have a specific plan. They do. And actually, it was just recently released. They entitled it mission possible. And I think the, the whole thing is that the greens for years have been branding themselves as. As the environmental party now that can work against them in certain ways, where they're sort of seen as only a one issue party. And it's, it's a it's an image that they've been trying to shake for some time now under Lisbeth may. But nonetheless, the greens are seen as a very credible party when it comes to the environment, you ask any Canadian like, who do you think is the party that would do the most to try and save the environment? I think the green party would likely be the number one answer. So they did release this ambitious plan for the environment. At a time when a lot of Canadians are paying attention to these issues. They are pitching to go well beyond what the liberal government has said, we'll be its targets in terms of dealing with greenhouse gas emissions. I mean, well, beyond the fact, they want to double the reduction target. So the liberals say they want to try and hit thirty percent to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from two thousand five levels by thirty percent by twenty thirty while the green party says we can do better than that. We'll do sixty percent of reduction from the two thousand and five levels of by twenty thirty. That's a dramatic shift and they're not just looking at, you know, pricing pollution as a way to deal with this. They're talking about some major projects such as retrofitting every building across the nation and eliminating our reliance on foreign oil making sure that from province to province. Renewable energy can be more easily shared something that even the conservatives are kind of pitching with their energy corridor option right now. So the, the greens have released released a very ambitious plan. And I guess now that it's out there. It hasn't had a lot of time to really set in for Canadians, whether they're paying attention to promises like this so far out from the election or not as another thing. But we'll see how they respond with these very ambitious targets that Elizabeth may and her green party have put forward two weeks ago. The greens actually one abaya election which. Which feels like something that doesn't happen. How did that come about? And what happened in auto afterwards? Because what I'm fascinated by, in this story is the number of people who have kind of seen a rise in the polls from the greens, but to your point written them off, as a one issue party, or while they can't climb that high can they and did this send a message are their people in auto Wah, talking about them? Now there are definitely people talking about the greens. And I think this by-election victory although I will say that by-election results are usually not reflective of where things go in general election ratified, it is a way and it's seen by some as a way to send a message to the government of the day. Prime minister Justin Trudeau said the day after the by election that he gets it. There's a message from Canadians they care about climate change, and they want to see action on climate change. And that's what his government is focused on through its carbon pricing system and. So I think there was a message sent to both the liberals and the end EP that they need to need to up their game. When it comes to environmental issues, the end EP as well as changed its tactics since that by-election result. And so, I think a lot of politicians while they were seeing some of this growth in this so-called green wave sweep across the nation and a lot of buzz and a lot of talk about the greens, it wasn't until we saw on federal scale of victory such as having the second elected, and p from the green party arrive at the house of Commons before they started to really, you know, publicly address this, because I'm sure that behind the scenes, both those parties were looking at the greens as, as a potential threat and trying to figure out what to do. But again, this is all come recently for the greens, where they've seen this rise over the last several months as we. Part of it to do with the focus on climate change part of it to do with distaste of the otherwise traditional parties that Canadians have been voting for for a while. But I think there was a message sent and, and people are adapting how do people see Elizabeth may who may be until recently, not many of them ever thought much about there's a bit of a joke around Ottawa that Elizabeth may is everyone's political aunt? You know, she's a likeable person, she has something to say about almost everything, but up until recently, I don't think a lot of people actually were considering her as, as potential prime ministerial material, and I think, more people are sort of giving her a bit of a shot. She's not distasteful in any way, you know, you haven't seen Elizabeth may be the subject of a lot of controversy. She has she's had her own problems within her own party. There has been pushed back, there have been allegations that she's been a bully as a leader. Things like that. But whether Canadians have been paying a lot of attention to that something else, she is seen as somebody who has integrity, who has a passion for what she does. And I would be hard pressed to find another MP in the house of Commons who spends as much time in the house of Commons, debating on almost every different subject, then Elizabeth may, so she's very committed to her work. There is broad support for Elizabeth may. But whether that translates into prime ministerial materials something else Nanos poll that just came out recently actually has her in terms of the preferred prime minister.

"And if you're looking at this from the Sixers Optimus kind of point of view, they don't really have too many guys that you can't cover like you can't hide kyri on Robert Covington anymore like if twice. This is the guy that like you have to hide Kyrie Irving, you're gonna get burnt a bunch. Of course. I mean, they're there to the two guys on the court who. That probably fourth and fifth on the core. Tobias Harrison JJ Radic, which are both terrifyingly accurate outside shooters. Yeah. Exactly jayjay could shoot it on one foot backwards drunk. You know, and we we I feel like I've seen that a million times in season. So from that point when you I mean, and that's the thing we say it all the time on paper in it's kind of the same thing with the Celtics on paper, they should be such a more dominant offense. I think a lot of my issue with them is their actual offense like an actual system put in place because I think that it's been catered to their best player shrinks, but it is really limiting in today's NBA. What Brett Brown is doing and also refuses to do. It's funny, though, we talk about these seem especially these two in particular about like we're almost done with the season. And it's still like, you know, on paver like, they should we vicious that. You know what I'm saying? Like, it's pretty fascinating how expectations have met. And then again, these teams are like top half of their conferences or the records are way above our hundred more. So than you know, the rest. Vs for sure. So it's not like they're struggling. But it is sort of a thing where you can see more for them. It's like why aren't you just as good as the bucks? Are. Why are you have? Joel embiid. Ben simmons. Okay. So we're saying the top two on the bucks are Janas and Chris Middleton. And then after Ben Simmons you have Jimmy Butler and Tobias hair. That's the thing. I just as good as the bucks. That's it's all about like system. Right because the bucks have tailored that roster to have every player who plays specific role like it fits into this larger like assembly line of system. Whereas the Sixers have just tried to sort of put something together with talent and coaching gas directly coaching. Yeah. And I guess this game in particular fed into the shrines of team. Mike Sixers that is top heavy where you have a guy like Jimmy Butler who while I don't want to rely on him just kind of jacking Layton games. And that's how you're going to win it. He has had some success. He's forty percent from three and clutch. Which was surprising now, it's small sample. I don't know how much you can really trust it. I mean, he definitely is one of those guys. It's not like you stealing. Waders? Yeah. But like some of the shots. He was taking were just like dribble up pull up three. And she's I wonder if this is just a matter of he was on in the second half and often the first, but I guess the problem in that is on the other end. Do we really have much faith in like all the defensive kind of woes at the Sixers have throughout the game. It just seemed like I don't know if they were. I don't know if it was a bad approach. But the very least there's a lot of miscommunication, especially on switches. I think there are leading to a lot of easy buckets for the Celtics and you have guys like James Ennis is really your six guy on this team. Mike, Scott is basically you're six seven guy in this team Boban played a little bit TJ played a little bit. But it really was only a couple of guys. And I don't know. I think there are those situations where deep team maybe like the raptors are just going to be able to pick off cleave in pretty much any lineup. You could have Toronto's terrible match up. I think for them, which is seems like that would be the two three at this point. Just going to say it's remarkable watching the raptors the primetime game afterwards. And it's like they're like all on a string. You know?.

"Better ones. Tell me how twenty nine thousand nine has gone so far for end, EP leader Jagmeet Singh. Let's say see minus. Okay. Not great. This isn't a great start for him. It's been a bit of a mess, but the end EP is traditionally known for great starts, and they're hovering more or less about where you'd expect them to be in the polls, historically speaking. So it only looks bad because they came so close to winning in two thousand fifteen and so the expectations were unusually high for them, which is making this look all all the worst. I mean, it's bad. But it looks worse because of sort of recent context, explain what looked so bad give us an overview because a lot of people I think have have seen headlines, but don't actually know what's going. On. So there are basic issues. Like, it seems to be the case that sometimes he doesn't know what his party positions. Are. There was a press conference last year where in the middle of it. He had to turn to another indie PMP Karolyn ask him to confirm a party position. And then he was doing a hit on. I think see TV and had to read or heard of a particularly current story about China. And then the Venezuela crisis hit, and it seemed to be the case that his foreign affairs critic, and as well as the he Ashton were driving the party policy and in he was out of step with that. So it sort of looks like he just doesn't have the office together, and he can't control the caucus, which which could be the key reflective of of an internal power dynamic or it could be as is often the case in politics case of disorganization and light to medium and competence. But this is. The crucial time. I mean, we have his by election for his seat and less than two weeks. Yes. And if he doesn't win we can get into that. And if he doesn't win the stakes maybe very high for him. I think he will will manage to pull it off in art because by-elections tend to go against the government. The the writing is easily in Indy p wind it was a close one in the last election the new cycle right now. The essence zeal avenue an affair in the resignation Jodie Wilson rebelled from Ken from cabinet is is not favorable for the liberal. So that's going to drag them down a little bit. Probably. So you'll probably win. But but the timing is quite bad for seeing to to be flopping around as much as he is a year in as well as managing stories about how a number of his Sasina any PMP's aren't going to running again, which is which isn't exactly a vote of confidence in his leadership. So the stakes are high, and they haven't really been able to put it. Gather yet. But luckily for him the liberals have scoring some one goals right now. So that might help right. And that's why we wanted to talk to you. Because I feel like since Andrew Scheer became the leader of the conservative party. It's been Trudeau versus sheer for the twenty nineteen election. Of course, the MVP flies under the radar as always. But this is the time when the liberal Seema's vulnerable is there ever going to be and seeing has a public profile right now, courtesy of this by-election what needs to happen right now to make the end EP relevant in October, essentially. I don't know if he has been caught in this challenging spot for for much of their history. And it's that Canada is typically sort of a center center right country. You know, to the extent that we move towards Kloss consciousness or social democracy from time to time. They'll the rules tend to hog up that space, the the treat the independent of a farm team and recruit their policies from there. And so the, you know, the liberals are so good at pivoting to the left then governing to the right that they block out the fairly often. And you you'll recall that when the MVP did so well in in the league twenty fifteen doing well was as much about Michalik Nazif and Steph on being poor leaders as it was about Jack Layton or Thomas Mulcair being good leaders..

"Anyway. But no one's no one picks that up. It's the moment. I say as opposed their own like like we found in March. We're we're the prime minister's numbers, you know, drop significantly after India trip that that pulled got picked up, and so there is this perverse incentive from the pollsters perspective to to find that like shocking story and the numbers in the same way that journalists and the editors want people to read or consume or listen to the content that they're producing they need to they need to tell the story. There has to be something interesting. That's where I think the the whole the polls are wrong. We can't trust the pull right narrative really builds in is because the incentives that we've were built in. And I think these are the incentives in journalism, generally. But it I guess feeds into or connect to even the polling world. And and so there's this constant pressure to tell the story to tell something interesting. That's controversial that's going to get people to to share the content or click on the link and again headline that says new poll says. Nothing's happened. That's not going to be that effective. Yeah. But in my world is social scientists as the pollster someone trying to explain what's going on in the public head around politics. Nothing happening is actually really interesting. Well, and that's where you get that dichotomy to right between like a site like five thirty eight dot com, which a ton of data journalism, and aggregates polls and all that kind of stuff. And you get the whole polls wrong narrative from the upsets like like Donald Trump's victory. And then you get no coverage of the fact that, you know, they nailed the midterm election in the United States, and they were not wrong at all. Right. But you get the what gets coverage is the pulls the wrong, even as they're more right than they've ever been. So I got this great story. So I was working. I forget which election was one of the provincial elections in the last few years, and I was it was a day of the election. And I got a call. I'm a journalist, and I won't name names again. And they said, well, we're we're writing we're prepared to story or if the polls are wrong tonight and. And so they wanted comment. They wanted to be prepared in case, you know, there was another surprise because this come after you remember in Canada, you know, twenty twelve or twenty thirteen there was an Berta election and be election to the post completely got wrong. Like they were. Absolutely. And I we did pulling Albert completely wrong. And so there was a lot of reason to be skeptical about how accurate polls could be. But I had a journalist writing preparing a story to say, the polls are wrong. And I so I ended the interview by saying are you preparing a story about what if the polls were right? And they said, no, we're not doing that. Right. So your point about, you know, we're also at the same time that I think the media, and I I don't mind that the media's addicted to the pulling because I think it helps that the narrative it helps understand wearing elections going and how to cover it, right? Like, I always say if you think that the twenty eleven election that was the election to even Harper won a majority. But Jack Layton surprised everybody by becoming official opposition. If the polls midway that campaign didn't show us that the end EP. Regaining strength in Quebec. And we're at leapfrog the liberal really worthy. Alternate Stephen Harper. We had no poll not election to tell us that the coverage of that election. I think would have been very different because people would and journalists and the public would have still assumed that the liberals and Mike like not yet at the time or the alternative Stephen Harper not Jack late, and and so the pulled. Well, there's lots of people out there who says we should ban poll during elections and their irresponsible with they they change people's opinions the end of the day. It's more information that allows the voter to make a choice, and we live in a in a political system where we don't always vote. Unfortunately, for our our number one choice because way our electoral system works..

"That is a good quite well because I have talked them giving tomorrow for the Canadian Cancer Society. So there's been a lot of like preparations, but. My girlfriend, and I are going to take Saturday off which is gonna be my first day off in in a long time. And we're going to go for a hike and just be out in the woods. And it kinda worked out really well because the talk for the Canadian Cancer Society is up at this retreat center, and and we had wanted to go camping this weekend. But as you can tell it's quite cold here. Guys Atlanta now is like to Seattle actually warmer there. So anyway, the guy I I had a meeting with him last night just kind of overview what I was going to do. And he's like, hey, by the way, we have these cabins, and you you and your girlfriend can just have one if you guys want to hang out. And so so so it's kind of fell into my into my lap. So universal like you need some self care time. Here's a cabin, and my girlfriend is amazing it and like she's just incredible it living in. Moment, and and kind of finding that balance and that self care, and and she's a good influence on me for sure. Yeah. I'm really happy that that you found her yet. I feel like there's there's, you know, I'm one of those people that like I'm super diligent with going to the gym and eating really, well and all those things and like an all of that is is self care. But there's also it's also like super officiant. You know, it's like it's still like trying to win it everything. And so although I have kind of shifted my gym thing a little bit where. Last like month, especially when it's been so busy, no matter. What's happening in my life? I never stopped going to the gym. I just decided that you know, like Brock Obama would would like work out like every morning and one of my favorite Kenyan. Politicians name is Jack Layton and he passed away, but the some of the business people on earth. They don't compromise that part of their routine. And so I know I don't compromise that so I've been having this moment where right before I walk into the gym. I'm like this is for me. And then I enjoy it so much, you know, and like people always tried to get me like join running clubs or like. No, no, no, no, no. Like, I have no mandate. I don't wanna like train for something. And then chief it and then stopped doing it was like this is their appeal for me. This is self care. But still I feel like I need this other layer of time where I'm. I'm just focused on being just being exactly just being. That's exactly. So it's kind of like the difference between going for a walk or going for a run. Like, obviously you run. It's great, you feel awesome. But when you go for a walk. There's this a different pace. There's a different mindset to it. There's just a different comfort to it. And so I need to go for more walks. I like I like that you say that this is for me. That's a good reminder to like literally verbally even say to yourself before going into doing anything like south care wise, like picture myself stepping into a bubble bath. This is for me. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's good. I'm glad that you have this cabin coming up and your time to just be and they also get to share it with your partner. Joe default beautiful thing.
