"I don't understand it. We're gonna leave that segment. They're moving onto our over under in our lightning round. Stephen carter we do this for you. This podcast is for you. You're still on the podcast. One of those three things should not be true. We'll start here. Overrated underrated stephen carter the civil liberties caucus in terms of what it might mean for. Oh tools downfall overrated. These guys are not going to be. Were chit underrated in your mind. What do you think underrated the interest. They are there the situation that kenny finds himself in right now. The conservative movement phrase from both sides and this is something that is fraying from both sides. Gory overrated underrated. The civil liberties caucus in terms of tools downfall. I think it's underrated as well. I it's maybe it won't be this particular caucus or this version. But it's one of the stronger manifestations we've seen of this real divide within conservative politics that we've seen in the past twenty years conservative parties unite federally and provincially if you happen to live in alberta here and we're seeing than being torn apart in front of our eyes and these are the kinds of vehicles that do it overrated underrated. The threat that. Brian gene is to chase in kenny's leadership overrated underrated. In your mind. Or i think That's let's talk this one out. You said yeah. Well look i mean. I think we've got to start with the baseline that his his leadership is in mortal peril right and so when we talk about brian jeans threat to it. I don't know i mean i. I don't think he's actually adding that much more threat to what already existed. And i guess that would be my point. In fact he may provide them an avenue to lessen that threat as we were talking about bit earlier. So i guess going to say overrated. But i wouldn't want to be misunderstood as suggesting that that means that jason kenny's in an easy position quite quite quite the opposite car- carter overrated underrated threat. Brian gene presents to jason kenny. I think under. I mean underrated. I guess because it's everything's out of the closet now right all. The threats are now going to be seeing you. The knives are coming out on their closing in. This is what happens at the end and Brian jeans decided to put it on the open. That's i think that that's a bold move that we don't normally see carter between one to ten one. Being the started the scale ten being the higher end of the scale A what is what are the stakes for the in this fort mcmurray by election the party. I'm not nothing about the independent. Uucp what are the stakes for the in. This by-election isn't a plus. We really need to see people you know they. They have to win They have to dig in. They have to win. And that's why i'm convinced that Jason kenney signs papers wanted to end corey the stakes for these ep in this by-election very high gram going to stick with you for our final question. Yes or no regardless of what jersey he is wearing. We'll brian gene be on the ballot in fort mcmurray weather as a use ep or an independent will he be on the ballot in fort mcmurray. Yes carter regardless of the jersey collar. The jersey type will brian gene be on the ballot in mcbarron the by election. That's the first thing correy's got right today. We'll leave it there. That's arapoff episode. Nine fifty of the strategist. My name is zane belgium with me as always stephen carter corey hogan.

"Always been lear like i started by saying. I do not support this leader. I believe in the grassroots. I'm here to vote for you. And if jason kenney were to kick me out of the caucus for voting in support of you with so be it like what you get with me as a true blue conservative and and see where that takes you from there. I just find it such a incredible notion. The idea that jason kenny might sign. His papers is madness to me. What carter. Let's talk to me about this then for a second before we go back to jean having his papers not be signed and what he does before we get to that. Let's talk about jason kenny. For a second. Can he have his cake and eat it too. In some ways can he signed the papers for gene and then also try to feed them in the nomination in some way. Is that a viable pathway. For jason kenney talked to me about that i mean he could. He'll lose though right so candidate will lose. Yes whenever you're making that kind of determination you have to be very careful because he definitely did not want the leader's office to be propping up a candidate that ultimately loses you need the leader's office to be clear of that type of thing because you can't you can't show more weakness so you're either in or out you're either. I'm going to sign his leadership paper or his nomination papers are not and if you're not you know if you are than let's go great She's if i'm jason. Kenny and i signed the papers. I'm campaigning in for mcmurray with brian. Gene even if brian gene won't be seen with me i'm reading people. I'm i'm campaigning. For the united conservative party under my leadership. Because we're not gonna lose his seat to the socialist hornets core anything to anything to add in front of me. We'll bring them of trying to have his cake. You needed to with the nomination. Well it's an interesting strategy right Because what happens to gene then but it's hard to imagine just given that he's been an mp there in la they're very popular guy. Yeah well his roots run deep in fort. Mcmurray guy lived in a tent will he. Will the city burned down and he was helping rebuild so so is that really realistic. Like is that a likely thing to happen. And i guess that's the thing i i'm struggling. I'm thinking in my head for examples of when leaders signed papers of somebody that they want. I mean wanted to lose okay. But like was actively against yeah. That's tough. I mean because you gotta live with the consequences of that and in fact in some ways if if gene gets his papers signed again. I'd just like that just blows my mind. Even the notion as i say the word seem outrageous given what he's already said and then goes into a contested nomination with somebody who's pro jason candy and he sleighs that you've actually made the problem worse. Yeah yeah you gotta be sure. Yeah and that does seem like the more likely outcome. Just based on his personal popularity and all of that and then he be going into a general election having killed a sycophant of jason kenny and it just allows him to say all of the things you don't want him to say with so much more credibility authority corey. Let's i'm going to stick with you for a second..

"The you know if he doesn't sign the papers. He's now got to win the by election. Because brian gene's gonna run in the by election and brian is is highly likely to win by by-elections so what he needs to do is if he's not gonna sign the papers he needs to make sure he's he's lining up the absolute eighteen of campaigners and an absolute all-star candidate Finding that all star candidate someone who represents the united conservative party that the the the pc's and or the The the wild rose. Who's going to stand in the face of brian gene and say you know what brian we couldn't win when you were the leader We remember that we won. Jason kenney was leader. he's been hit by a pandemic and insurrections from the legs view And that's why. I have to beat you in this by-election because we shouldn't allow the united conservative movement to be on done by just a simple cruel trista fate and that cruel twist is corona virus and the small-mindedness of people like brian gene. Gory yes end to that. What are you doing if carter saying we need to find our version of an all star up there to run. What are you thinking. Here's the thing jason. Kenny and the uc ep. Donate to win in that scenario. Their actual best-case scenario might be an end. Ep win coming up the middle because of a vote split between the use. Ep and brian. Gene i mean that becomes the example of exactly what you're saying about unity and the risks of losing unity at that point. So that's where you you manage pretty. Maybe that's what i'm saying. Let's say let's let's let's go down to pathways than here. And let's flip the script o'brien gene. You're working for brian gene. Two scenarios. kenny signs. Your papers can. He doesn't sign your papers. Let's talk about kenny. Signing your papers. Obviously you gotta win. Are you running a fort mcmurray campaign. Are you running a kenny campaign..

"This is going to destroy the vp. And and nobody should tolerate it. So you've gotta stop choice. Come april do you want bryan gene and this personal politics that again. It allows you to reframe everything that happened. In the past as brian. Gene has just been fucking about trying to get his moment to come back and refight the fight that he lost. Carter's much to unpack your. But let's let's actually leave this bracket open for a second on some of the other strategic questions and i want to ask you. What do you think the premier does do you think he signs the papers or not. What do you think is gonna do. He's not going to sign the papers. He used a good political. Strategist but what. It seems to be happening podcast. And he's listening to corey all the time. It's very upsetting for me Because obviously hello. I'm the strategist that people should be listening to and bringing this enemy in is exactly what he should be doing. But he won't sign the papers because he's embattled and he's scared and the problem is the leadership can never come from a position of fear. Gory willie sign the papers. He shouldn't it's it's utter horse. Shit name me a political leader anywhere that would sign the papers of somebody actively campaigning against them. I mean it's not as general weakness it's lunacy chretien marlin. I win already pretty bad. I'd say high profile examples. It's going to go out and live. I feel like martin knows down. Okay did jim would not have signed ralph klein dinning. Okay many many players. Were you want me to go down. Every example you're giving me is in the bag stomack. Every ed's them smiling in the same room together steven. This is a different example. This is this is brian. every one of 'em. la's beat.

This time he knows all the best barbecue restaurant so i just hung out with him and we have great food. Texas barbecue is very different than any other type barbecue. It's good at those kinds of conferences. You gotta find a buddy you gotta find someone who knows the restaurants and that's where we date. I've heard from many that. This particular gathering has like early two thousand seven south by south west. Fives like something about black. Pigs are about to blow up.

"Government-sponsored vacations a loved to column. And then i decided to get out and to be really honest because at that time i wasn't open to the spirituality aspect And i made a little promise to god on the universe was like if you keep me safe all the old passage in the bible talking about beating your spears into plowshares ryan and didn't know really how true that would be but you know i was like he keeps me safe because at that point i hadn't been to combat i was like i didn't know what to expect and san. If you keep me safe come back will end the deal because at that point was very much for those listening. What i was doing at that time. I was served about six years as a paratrooper. In the whole thirteen years. I did in the infantry saul ground combat training and everything and so it was very much alpha male type mentality right and so going forward when when i came back and i was like. Wow okay time to fulfil my profits than i knew. I was getting out but it was a very normal safe way for me to look at the national guard and but not in a traditional sense everybody looks at the reserves or national guard is one weekend a month two weeks a year. But i was looking at the full time aspects so serving as i did with the regular army in a full-time status so and it really brought me to north dakota. That's i put in for positions all throughout the united states and it came down between nome alaska and might not north dakota. The universe was like we need you in north dakota. That's where your destiny is line. And i was like okay. I'm really in my mind. I was thinking my parents are giving older. I don't really see myself. Settling down a barrel and came here in long. Behold i met my wife and count like the prophecy in a sense. Am gonna. i'm going to settle down. Did i become a farmer new. I really had to be really honest. I don't really have much of a green thumb but it was more of a metaphor obviously in the mind and won't behold that. I was not even aware that i was to go on and serve a capacity that i was not even prepared a fathom yes was a medium i mean. I would've told you to go get drug test. You would've told me back down. Hey dean you're going to be doing that. So i served another ten years in that fulltime capacity and ended up retiring about seven years ago with a total of twenty for years. So yeah it was. It was interesting first and foremost sir. Thank you for that tour of duty. Twenty four years. That's a lot of commitment of your life to the service of either. So thank you for that. Absolutely thank you. I'm looking at it interesting parallel in my mind. Here settling down in north dakota area for native american activity big connection there when i read some of the narratives of the lives of native american. Yeah for sure. Native americans being very in tuned to our spiritual life to our energetic life right. So that's interesting to me that you landed in that area for sure for sure. Well you know when my belief now is your going to be lead whether you listen or not. You're going to be led to the area that you're needed monte quick funny story for you. When i landed a position in north dakota and i was like okay great. I was all excited Very much single. At the time. And i was like now my where am i gonna live right and so of course you do the logical where you working and then he kinda work out from there and i was like i don't care i'll just rent a place but me i'm very much an outdoorsy guy. And at the time. I was like i want to be able to hunt and fish and be outside and there was nothing absolutely zero for ran. Tore lease sir. Anything and obviously a lot of farms but nothing and finally. I was like well. Something's just gonna turn up. I know it is as i basically got to north too. I had all my stuff with me. I have no idea where i was going to go but something inside me told me. Hey dean is just gonna be taken care of. Don't worry i showed up grabbed a paper. And boom there was a farmstead for rent about thirty minutes south of where i was working in long behold that turned out to be my first place that i guess i was establishing myself and it was just kind of crazy as i continued that i kind of equate that back to starting to listen. Even though i didn't know what it was. I was to listen to the inner voice in san. Is this gonna be okay to show up. Because you're following those breadcrumbs that were laying out and you know it. Just keep on common. That's all right. Just keep listening by. Always find that interesting when i reflect back and like you know what universe took care of me way back then their university romy now so beautiful thing when we that we're being a co created environment. That's such a cool angle to look at. You know that notion of divine voice or that. Divine intervention right. Edgy knew where you were supposed to right right. Yeah it's so crazy. And like i said at the same time i didn't know what it was. That was nudging me and the same thing when i moved locations when i moved from that location within the state to another one there was nothing available for housing at the time and i was really kind of like you know what's going to happen but it was an inner knowing attracted up to being single and this workout and i'm good either way. Whatever helps her whatever works and it showed up. Get i that's chananeen. But i didn't now when i reflect back with the knowledge that i have now gone I kind of laugh at my former self because san there was a lot more going on than you're aware of but it's cool. I think it's cool that i was listening. Even if i wasn't aware because i wasn't embracing my spiritual self. I wasn't you know what i'm saying. So i think about the people that are going through that journey now all currently even if they're not aware of their inner knowing or that higher self and is a lotta people quite honestly might go. I don't know about that stuff. I think you might be smoking your sage reds and there's a skepticism because a psychotic know that it isn't something made up my head and that's a very common question the logic aspect creeps in and typically what i share is now is coming from a heart space. Do you feel it or is this something that you're putting the logic to is a cognitive aspect. The what i call the reptilian brain aspect and wherever. You're coming from that's okay. It's not about judgment is just about awareness the more that we can put our awareness to what we're doing. We can co create bigger and better things that we want. No i applaud you because that is such a bold move so often. Many of us are faced with inner calling that right desire or drive for change and we allow that fear to overrule absolutely. Wow that fear to govern our choice so often to me. We look at that. And i like looking back to that reference of both freud in immune of the collective unconscious you know how those collective build up ideas or thoughts from the past either our own past or the past that were created throughout generations telling us that you are about to meet certain doom. You're about to crash and burn so to speak well for me personally for me. It's it's taking those cues from whether it be the universe your higher self whatever consciousness entity whatever and putting those into the current equation that you're living so whatever situation that you find yourself pope. Whatever information that you're being given for example going back to afghanistan a story that i like to share as we were doing a night patrol when time in a vehicles and armor while not vehicles because we didn't have really armored vehicles at that time and we had stopped for some reason it typically. That's not what you do. You don't stop. Unless you absolutely have to and i kept hearing this voice you need to move vehicles and other five hundred meters and i was like trying to get on the radio trying to tell the lead vehicle to move and nobody's answering like this is so strange and it was so it was so bizarre because the scenario would never ever happen. Because you're these guys were out. I think they were relieving themselves taking a smoke break. I'm thinking oh my god. What universe a mayan. These guys are off their rockers. And as i'm talking to the lead vehicle the guys in the lead vehicle. We heard inaudible sound that we still believe to this day was a ide- trying to be detonated now. We were part of the convoy. There was this early early early. This was back in two thousand and three so the going. Pack a number of years back in those days. There was a lot of technology that they used today. That was being prototype and there was a technology to try to disrupt the detonation atomic. Detonation of id's that was very new technology and we had some of the prototypes with us. And we still believe to this day. If it wasn't for the technology that a lot of us wouldn't be here today or missing a lot of body parts. But i go back. I was like. I'm very thankful number. One for the technology number two. I was like but wait. Where was voice from. Who or what was that voice and it was trying to tell me something. And i kind of didn't even think about it because it was inner knowing it was inner lake. There was somebody behind me. Gone hey you know and there was only me driver and the the governor. There was nobody in the heat of the moment. If you will saying things so sometimes look back on that. Because that was a time in my life that i was in open to everything and i was still in that very much. Military mindset of Back some figures in logical things but there is an aspect of intuition that i wasn't obviously acknowledging the label on this call it a lot of times if people summarize with all this tim being seasoned or being very soldier or the lay of the land or going with their gut door right. So many labels about using your intuition without using the word intuition so it was interesting to me when i reflect back that the aspects that kind of communicate to me. Now gone You were you were using it way back. You didn't realize that. I think it's so cool. Because that's why. I'm such a proponent of people now to be aware of everything that's around them not only the physical world but things that may be can't be seen with normalize or things that can't be felt with normal senses yes and if we're more aware of those it would only bring us to a higher state of awareness of all things whether it's danger whether it's prosperity whatever it is emotions and so that self can only accentuate whatever it is. You're doing and i think about the police officer or you think about it could be. It could be anybody. Somebody working at the teller working at a big box store doesn't matter i think so. Many of us are feeling all the field has a social and political climate going on currently today. Everybody feels all the all the anx. Yeah you're getting that collective unconscious coming. Yeah you're feeling the vibe right. A lot of people use. Oh my god there's something jan we know but the aim may not assist like they feel like i feel mad or happier sad or gasoline. Impasse taken on. Everybody stops and try to discuss the when i call discussing the woo. Woo without being do raise. Like yeah yeah yeah i. Why do we discount that win that exist. Why did we totally discount them. We look a little bit and this just kind of a vague mine touch on it that aspect to not dissect military practice military methodology. But you were kind of ingratiated with that. Disconnect from some of those logics yet. We look at instances where the military has utilized savy native american. Kotok yeah who largely governed a lot of their practice on the sound literally absolutely. There's an interesting parallel there. There's a lot of either or in life. Yeah and we all know that the military for decades right have you know either ran. Secret programs are different. Things to explore that metaphysical aspect. There's something there we just don't know in obviously of course being give him the military they want to weaponize taking that what i think is so cool is whether it's the native american aspect or whatever is all the same thing it just has a different face right quote unquote face to it and yes so it doesn't matter whether your military police again the realtor big boxer. It doesn't matter what you do. It's like how can you use that as overlay in your life. Accentuate doing what you're doing. I did a keynote speech. Oh probably about a year or two ago and a friend of mine is in the fundraising world with nonprofits in. He's like dean. I want you to come talk to all these nonprofit folks about intuition and listening to that now i was like. Are you nuts. I was like you know. These are what i would consider people that are thinking with inside the box right and he goes no. That's why i want to get them thinking. I would sign yet. You know not only the logical tools and things to the creativity outside. The box also allies the metaphysical or the six cents. And he said you always talk about if you can learn to leverage that this how you can take that in turn into prosperity you know safe your realtor or maybe you're investment banker or artists or whatever right you can use that co creative within your work and manifest more of what you want gif and i was like oh quibble and it was really fun because number one. It was a different Crowd and number two. It was more understood because my my mind. I'll call it my ego right. You know he go was thinkin Gonna go there berry you know in the box and there was so many that were how do i wanna call it There is sometimes a joke and call it closet. Who earth's people. That are very spiritually connected. But they're very guarded with who they share it because they believe others will judge down on how they perceive that right so family friends. Everybody else around them. That's how i started off to when everything started at my spiritual journey. I was very very of course i was still in the military and i was barry guarded with who i shared. What was going on. There was only a few guys in the office. That i would talk about some guy that was like this giving me the cross and all the other guys were like dude. You're your sol and But it was. The collaboration was the connection right and we start creating this environment of like minded individuals. And once you do that you create an we've for this term before the mastermind principle right and the consciousness opens up and creates an entirely new paradigm in the energy starts to flow. So you feel safe to start. Explain this energy. I love jeffrey. How you talk about the native american connection especially here in north dakota absolutely the whole right. The you know so much rich native american culture all throughout the united states north america all were but yeah obviously north dakota very rich i. It's interesting because of not only had a lot of clients but i've also learned a lot because bear cultures vary immerse assists normal. Which i think is so fascinating and curse when we start talking about some things like that is one of the things that came to me. Early on in my development was the ability to a phenomenon. Call remote viewing. I don't know if you've heard of that basically for the listeners. That haven't is the ability to project energetically outside your body and to go to different places is basically to view and it's not to a boy ristic weird thing is about for example a used for a client that was worried about her and she runs a fortune five hundred business. She was like. There's something not right. I can't put my finger on it. we've run. Whatever like an internal audit. But she said. I think i need somebody with a little bit different skills. She said and see what you find an so basically i share this obviously with their permission but one of the things that i saw was a scientist messing with her formulation. She has a product that had to be approved by the fda. And this is something. That i'm not gonna stay the product but it's carried almost by every major brand store across the united states and i said somebody's messing with your formulation and she's like really and so forget how they did the investigation but she said. Did you realize that you you saved me millions. She said it's gonna cost me. Millions is now everything on the shelf. We polled across the united states. And she said because we don't know if the stuff on the shelves meet fda requirements. She goes the scientist that was in. Charge of the formulation was they. Were doing their own thing. And was not following the formulation. That was mandated. So there was some crazy crazy stuff. Mez just one example but the correlation. I'm trying to tie back to early on in my guest. Element of remote viewing was an aspect of native american idol. I'm not aware that. I have any native american heritage in my lineage and it was so interesting because it was almost like being so close to the energy all that where i started receiving images of a raven anybody knows with native american culture right. Animals are huge autumn animals. Right and all of this. I was like what's up with the raven. And i was like okay very spiritual all that communication with the spirits. Their messengers very noisy and but very intelligent as well. And i also go ahead. Sorry as i believe. In the native american vernacular that's considered a totem or what they deem spirit guide. Absolutely we look at that. Correlation within the psychic medium world of the spirit operator from my rewrite medium is I don't like using that word. That i see often description has manipulating psychic. That channel leaner connecting with psychic energy or energy sist. I don't like using the word manipulating either. My true belief doing any type of energy work from the heart. You can't manipulate yes. Fight however like water. If you think if i wish i had a couple of cups water. It's not manipulating. But you can. Channel the like. Bruce lee is like be the water rights and water in a pipe. You can make do certain things nippy late in the water. The league aligning with the awareness. The energy and you're really making a do in a sense what you want and you can change. Wanna you can add kool-aid to water you can have copied. You can change certain dynamics but it's still water at the end of the day. I can't change it gef our tastes in you. Make a change directions as tanner's but it's still water and so as far as manipulating really struggling with that word too. And i like using the word more like channeling door directing directing the energy in the in the way you want go. Gee more one aspects. Ed one's life if we really think about it it's really not about directing anything because energy is going everywhere anyways and it's more about it's more about us maybe manipulating ourselves. If we wanna use out where if we want to feel that we have that power and that's great but yeah so it's more about when i look at it. It's more about working with it. It's not about being commander empower over. It were getting in flow with it. I like looking at that notion and then reflecting back to that. Great rhonda byrne quote the book. The secret we are all energy and energy never dies it just changes form. Electricity becomes light. Light generates our ability to see to connect to understand right right you. We look at that. That's all a proponent of this energy that we're always usually made of yeah that's a powerful powerful statement and i've had some students even to some people in conversation. Say what does that mean. And he tried to explain it and i think for some at least i know from speaking from personal experience. Ray was early on in my development. I didn't get it till i got it time. You're gonna hear over and over and over near like what is that mainly that sounds like a parable psych. You're talking circles to and but then is i. What do you mean is it. What is that. you'll know when you get there and it's like really and then all the sudden one day the light bulb goes on because you are finally there. It's like yoda it is what it is you know. What does that mean. it is what it is. It's interesting that personal experience. That connects the dots for us and minutes dislike. The universe opens up. And it's like why. I've tried to struggle with the trying to understand. Maybe a logical aspect. What is it with the mind that we have to connect dots. I think district cognitive understanding of. How do i understand. All the or. How do i making even explain this. And of course human beings we have to understand by having experiences otherwise is really hard for us almost impossible for us to put a description or yes really speak with conviction to me speaking to that point before we go a little further pardon me for grabbing this. I think this is important. I feel sometimes the closer you get the less able. You are to put it into wording unless you are does it. But i don't know how to tell you right right a closer you get the further away. You feel like it's like because were often traveling down a new path. That isn't the past. therefore we haven't created that familiarity. We haven't created that consistent. Meaning that we say. Oh yeah you do this every day and i can tell you what it is right rain. You know. I guess. I haven't found the be. All end all cyclic. -pedia bex l. nations by you know sometimes to is. The understanding of everything is existing all the time so there's no such thing as fast. There's no such thing as future. Yes and we're just existing in the moment this moment that we have right now right jeff so you know. The thing is that santa came off. There's no past and there's no future like how does that work and to try to understand saying you know some stuff. I don't know for really understand because very few minds. I know i can't but very few minds can even conceptualize it and sometimes it hurts your head to try to figure it out in san how about. I just enjoy where i am right now. Why get hung up on future suffer pass stuff. I'll just glean enough information about what's going on in the future and maybe a little bit. What happened in the past. And so i can use what's going on right now and talking. About of course. Doing what i do talking to dead people. That's all pass stuff right there. Deceased whatever happened at the beginning of this interview. That's on the past now but in reality five minutes ago was five minutes ago and so you know that talking about the given moment the seconds the one is you know i heard of was talking about the dates on a gravestone rate and the date you were born and the date. You died where you lived as the dash and living for the dash. Yes in that moment is like it's not about at the end and it's not the beginning. Yes now as i get a happ. What's going to happen a year. How long you figure out what's going on right now. It in the true sense. Yeah sense you know. Your date of birth is the past. We knew died as you know when you're looking forward to and you know in that sense we are all looking forward to death. Not maybe in the sense that we put meaning on it. But eventually it's going to happen. That dashes add spacing between right. That's right now unfortunately. What i see is so many of us are living either for the past or for the future. They're trying to either. He'll something in the past. So you know. I think in my line of work there. Obviously when somebody passes there is a hurt you know there is a sorrel and you wanna connect one more time or you want to. Maybe there was a trauma. Some sport radius trying to heal those past traumas still. They're not affecting you in the present moment and then there's that other camp of thought that i'm worried about the future job i'm worried about you know well i get mary. We'll find the love of my life. What about finances. What about all the what. s or all the anxieties. Does that exist now. Does that exist in the in the dash moment right so it's it's interesting paradigm in regardless of what camp you're in it's not about judgment. It's about self awareness. And the only reason that bring it up is because i think it becomes sometimes pandemic can itself because people that are living in the future are dealing with severe anxiety and people that are always living in the past coulda shoulda windows or whatever the.

"Yeah sure. All of us have a hallmark type of gathering in mind but most of our holidays happen differently than that. Fractured families x.'s. Inlaws grown kids travel. Schedules travel restrictions. granny passing. There are some families that are reminded of a tragic event. That happened around this time. Whatever the case may be in your family that no longer. Fulfils that hallmark picture in your head. Things are different than they were. You see things are different when the glue is missing. I remember as a kid. We would have a separate table for me and my cousins to eat. We'd run around pasture. Get in trouble for playing on the round bales of hay and then go play in the barn then. We were restricted to play inside. And we'd go down to the basement and play games there man that was worth some great memories and all of it was because we were together and that takes glue. Things are different when the glue is missing. My daughter now lives several states away. And she's at the age now where she needs some furniture. I've been restoring a table for her. And we're taking it to her for thanksgiving and as i was restoring the table when i put it back together i forgot to use wood glue. I found out quickly that i needed to disassemble this table again and then use would glue. In addition to what. I'd used made the table stronger solid. I could trust setting something heavy on it and i can tell. This was going to be a dependable table for many years to come. Things are different when the glues missing so let me pose something to you. My grandmother was the glue that held my family together. My wife's mother was the glue that held her family together as well when i was restoring table. It wasn't even going to make the trip unless i had glue together. Things are definitely different. When the glues missing you may say well you just have to have the right mindset to see this and i think that's a problem in our society to be in the right lane set. It takes work to apply glue and one of the main issues. That i see is that people don't wanna put forth any effort they don't wanna work for it. They just want to experience that hallmark. Feeling there's a consumer mindset to this we just wanna plop down in front of the tv and watch will challenge you to be the new glue. I know it's obvious that the glues missing we've established that there's a problem. The question is are we just going to continue to be depressed about the situation and try to find ways to avoid it or do something about it. Be the new glue. It's gonna take effort and applying glue. Takes work hard work restoring that table for my daughter taught me something about glue the today i wanna point out seven quick things that i've learned about a lying glue. The first one is that. I had to disassembled the table again. You may have to undo some things over and over again number twos once. I started applying. The glue wasn't that big of a deal. The hardest part is starting. I mean that's true in ministry ninety percent of ministries just showing up the third thing. I want to point out. Is it required pressure. You see when you apply. Glue the parts just kinda slip and slide around. Because they don't know where to land or family will be like that too. You may have to apply some new pressure in order to give direction so when you glue would together you use clamps to screw them down tightly until it dries then that's pressure that's also direction moving onto number four it also required cleanup whenever you apply glue. Things are going to get messy. Just expect it and be prepared for it and things will be okay number five. The reward is far greater. Now it's one thing to go to a store and buy a piece of furniture but it's entirely different when you restore something in. His reward is far greater that hallmark movie. That you like so much. That took screenwriters producers an entire crew to film lighting audio and then editing. There's a lot of work done to put that movie in production and it provided livelihood for a lot of families that person who was a part of working on that movie. They watched it with a different intention. That didn't they. The reward is far greater for them and number six because of the glue. A table is now trustworthy. Before the table was rickety now i can trust it to set things of value on it things of wait not gonna show it to the ones. I love in the last thing that i want to point out about what i've learned through glue as that. It will last much longer. Now you see. I sign the bottom of the table. Where no one would see it. But it was just for her. No one else needs to know. Well you will but if you're looking for something that means much more than the wood and the function of the table. That is what lasts. The work i put into that table will now last much longer than that of the table. So today things may not look like the picture. In your head about thanksgiving things are different. Glues missing now go glued when you dare to do that. You are living the freedom life. Happy thanksgiving everyone until next time. This is kind of glad you joined us today.

Previous to that was the super chart, the the power and that the win went to the whipple super charger. So we're starting to define some of the more mechanical things but. It's been a really fun project. We're getting a lot of feedback. We actually get a lot of questions email to us, and it's just been fun to be able to interact with the audience and there are some prizes in there too that that I never expected. So that's been been a lot of fun to see what people really think and what they vote on for each phase of the car. Awesome what kind of questions are you getting about the car? So. Know even though we published that we're going to be running it in modern street hemi shootout people have asked us what class. That that, we're planning a running in you know what kind of fuel were planning on running? How big the tires will be. You know before it's funny. A lot of the things that they drill into are the questions that are going to get answered when the next votes come up. So they were asking us what engine shop. You be running a a moped transmission or not will we be running Dana or an eight and three quarter or not? You know what's the size of the root tires? and. Then, of course we get. Free unsolicited advice. Which I knew we would get with You know what we think we what what folks think we should be doing. And things like that. So it's been good. It's it's educating given that we've got a company that's going to be continuing to build cars are after this campaign is over. So this is actually serving as kind of a prototype for one of the bodies will be offering. As as a graduates to the. Final stages? Right on. So this is going to be a package that. Ready Chassis will be able to provide to people that you WANNA go fast correct. Yeah. We'll have it in. We'll have it in three different formats really well, actually four I should say is will will be publishing a book a manual on how to how to build the exact same car using the same package and some of the things that we faced in the process. You'll be able to build a a or by a rolling chassis that is painted and essentially built without drive line. And then you'll be able to get a relatively finished car with Dr Line and. Maybe leaving us some of the details out like safety Belsen parachutes and things like that or the completely assembled. Her and and tested. ready to rock version of. Of. The same car so An will probably offer popular colors as well as the factories watches that are available.

Do you guys to before we get into your current mo par endeavors. Let's rewind time a little bit and chocolate start with you. What got you into Mope ours. So it's an interesting thing. There was a A nineteen eighty eight hot rod magazine. Maybe it was car craft and they had the the top ten fastest cars of all time and they were measuring the cars in various road courses in quarter miles and things like that and so you know at the age of thirteen. I was really into like Lamborghini. Coon Tauch Ferraris did not the cars and car that owned the quarter mile for that particular top. Ten that they did was a sixty two Max Wedge Dart Right which is the opposite looking of a Lamborghini coon touch and I was just completely floored that something that was that ugly could be that fast and so that kind of caught my eye and from then on I just started picking up reading magazines and kind of following the Mo par story and of course once you get into the four twenty six Hemi content and you realize how many engines they own in straight line racing. They've been pretty much the dominant force when it comes to top fuel and those types of engines and things and so I stuck with it then Got Into my own cars. When I was fourteen.

Obviously your dad had to have some sort of influence on you and your love of no go ahead. Go ahead and tell your side of the story. Yes so I mean I've actually got two different peaks Because I'm interested in both old offers annual And the the new generation are and actually both have to drexel cars that he's bought so that goes twelve years old. My Dad Decides to tell me. Hey we're going up to Wisconsin and we're GONNA TALK HUNDRED DOLLAR. Nineteen Sixty six dodge. Coronet THE ROAD. Kill the road kill influence. We actually did have a pretty big influence. And I can't leave that part out because I started watching roadkill with him and that definitely sparked the interest in him to want to go and fight in this car. So it's kind of whole cycle on. We started with them. And so when up to Wisconsin? We bought this car and drove at six hours home and it was incredible. That was we almost did. Maybe almost didn't make it. We ended up. You ended up getting home all right and we spent six months with that car before we decided to try it out for our newest nineteen seventy-three Dodge coronet which we still have today. But then so that's my interest in Olmo parts. That's how it all started and now since day. I'm actually driving a nineteen seventy seven plymouth. Which we bought on Saint Patrick's Day this year green current Saint Patrick's Day in and right around the same time my dad decides to get a two thousand ten dodge challenger Archie. And I'll be honest at first I was not kind of it. I was Kinda weird new car. He's always had cars around and then we decided to take it out to route. Sixty six raceway out here. Julia took it down the track. And I for some reason to seeing the car out on the track comparing its other cars. My Dad was out there I was like this is so awesome just the track experience everything about it and pretty much that moment on just seeing the cargo down the track during during a testing tune into it was awesome. Was that your first time at the drag strip. No I've been since I was like three dragged him out every summer and spring we would go down there and go to the MCA events and took him to the Shows when he was so young. The only thing you wanted to do is by matchbox cars and free ice cream. I think the influence of seeing enough of it you know. He started to kind of pick up the hobby and took to it. Pretty naturally right on right on well now that we have a little bit of your background. Let let me ask you a couple of questions. We get into your businesses journey. What do you guys think about? The current mopey marketplace as far as where pricing is for not only project mopeds that are classics but also fully restored Mo- parse. How do you feel about that? You know it's interesting Because you know we've done worked for retailers in the automotive market we've kind of followed where the investment Moped level cars have gone since you know after the economy crashed in two thousand nine and it really got inflated right. It was almost frightening to think that if you wanted to go out and get a four forty four a barrel automatic body that you're GONNA be spending at least forty thousand dollars for something so that was crazy but I am happy that the market is recognized that these cars important enough to put the money into them and take care of them because so many of them just got left out in the weeds and crushed and everything else. So it's been interesting to see kind of how that's continued to change over time but what? I found what I found really interesting where you know. The price of the aftermarket is gone. It's actually a lot cheaper now than it was so many years ago to be able to build engines and get parts. There's you know we went to. Sima last Fall and you know you go to the Diamond Piston booth. And there's four different piston types just for the four hundred in a low deck engines. There was stuff we dreamt of twenty five years ago so I think that's great and the new stuff has certainly respond generation in the market You know it's challenging that hell cats. Are you know to get into one now? If you're going to get into a used one you're probably looking at forty forty five thousand but the demons you know. They're still at that inflated price is you know even with all the incentives you're still looking at a seventy thousand dollars. Eighty thousand carbajal are also buying a ten second. Turnkey Quebec killer so I guess that does make sense. But it's it's really exciting time and I think It has never been good to be a mope or guys it is at least in the last couple of years and my personal. I definitely agree. What about you matthew? What do you think about? These prices are the crazy. Or what for me definitely barely for anything that any of these cars I see him? I'll go on facebook marketplace a lot. Just dream you know. Look at Ebadi's I'll look at peabody charters and stuff and I'm just thinking to myself like if it weren't for the fact that he was into the stuff I would just continue to dream and but I think that it's words at is pretty good because if you look at the comparison of other domestic vehicles New prices used prices. They're they're pretty expensive and I mean it's when you're in the restoration market alone. You're looking at expensive prices anyways. When you're going to get into a project you know you're GONNA be spending money but I would definitely say that. For where things are you know. Where the economy is. I think that the prices are very reasonable and and for some cars for some. I feel like you know the demon. The inflation should go down. I'm hoping it goes down as I just I mean. It's an incredible carbon. I just one hundred and thirty nine hundred now. Let me ask you both this. Do you think that 'cause I I've been seeing almost a divide between modern moped enthusiasts and the the old school guys for lack of a better term. Do you think it takes a little bit of fun out of the equation when you go out him by say a demon or even a hell cat or a hell cat red eye because they're already fast out of the box so like you know you dump will say fifty thousand or a hundred thousand plus on a car you know unless your pockets are really deep. I mean how much modification are you really going to do? How much fun are you really going to have aside from just turning the key in going? Do you think that those cars take the fun out of it you know? It's it's a twenty to say that because we've we've really Invested in in both old and new and having a two thousand fourteen thirty eight that ran he got an eleven ninety. Three out of it with soft tires out of the box mods and It was neat. Because you know out of the box you can go that fast but at the same time. There really wasn't a lot that you could touch easily. If you'RE GONNA make one modification you need at least a tune and with a tune in a few modifications if you put the Karni Eleven's then you need to start trason Dr Line making improvements and so it's really never just a bolt on. It's a few thousand bucks so you know I'd say that it's reinvigorated the market but I would agree that there seems to be kind of a divide between the folks that did restoration and were part of this for thirty or forty years and what the new market has done but in some ways it has kind of taken the fun out of. I think you know when when you can get in a red eye in run ten teens or high nines to do that in a body would require a lot more. Yeah so it makes it easier if you are not mechanically inclined and you don't have tools but at the same time it has reset the bar for. What is a fast car? So it's a it's interesting right but they're also forty six hundred pounds. So you know the safety equipment. My concern with a lot of those cars. What happens if you do have something happen at the end? I mean forty six hundred pound car versus twenty. Eight hundred pound. Cars is a lot more inertia

"Pete McMurray in the all states Pete McMurray in the skyline studios to seventeen the governor comes on around two thirty so we're gonna take Dr Ben singer from northwestern hospital right up to the governor in doctor I saw a woman on ABC seven yesterday Deborah Westfall who has the virus in we have are on the line and I want to Deborah to kind of tell her story because Devery you didn't have a fever when you first were feeling ill is that right no I did not have a fever at all last Wednesday the eleventh I started the I have a cough and I had some some body ache and it was a dry cough I also we kinda lost my ability to taste anything and you know my body aches got a little bit worse and my cough got a little bit more and then on Sunday I had heard that someone in my building was infected with the virus so on Monday I had a horrible coughing attack to where I couldn't catch my breath and that's when I called my primary and I think because I'm a breast cancer survivor and that I've recently gone through it they wanted to get me in for a tough time right away sure so I I was directed to go up to a clinic through north shore university health systems in Gurnee where they they give us a lot of my throat and two swabs inside my nose they came back and they told me that I tested negative for influenza and strep throat and that they'd be sending my test off to Evanston hospital and that I would hear in twenty four to forty eight hours I heard back twenty three hours later that I was positive and what did they tell you to do did they give you medicine that they say just go home get some rest what did they tell you to do so when I left the clinic they told me to practice social distancing don't come within six feet of anyone wear this mask and they gave me a mask so I I did I I came back to my apartment and then when I found out that I had it they told me to stop quarantine for fourteen days so a friend picked up my dog because I obviously can't walk them right up I live in a condo well let me let me ask the doctor so doctor no fever they wanted her quarantine I mean this is the eighty percent that they talk about that the eighty percent here you're just gonna go home you're going to just lay in bed for fourteen days are just going to hang out yeah fortunately most cases are mild and don't require hospitalization and and don't require intensive care were worried of course about the cases that can progress people can get very sick and and even require life support but fortunately as as is our guest here hasn't hasn't needed that level of care and and can just treat this like you would any other flu at home that's right so Deborah aches and pains what are you feeling right now since it started last Wednesday today Sunday how are you feeling now you know so it's actually you know I'm like on day ten so it was it was the eleventh that I got sick I'm feeling so much better you know I still don't have I would say I I still don't have my taste buds back that's for sure a lot of us would wish that we didn't have taste buds I I've lost six pounds there is a plus right there but there's a silver lining you know and and my my energy level is still a little bit low but aside from that you know and I have a little bit of a cough I'm getting better every single day doctor once you get the corona virus is it a year or life you won't get it back for a year or maybe for the rest of your life or we don't know at this point we don't know at this point and so so glad to hear that you're you're feeling better that's wonderful to hear the the the taste and the smell disruption that that's something we're hearing more and more about I'm very interested to hear that the report of that as well we do know that people will develop antibodies in their blood against the virus and we think and we certainly hope that that will be protective but to the extent to which it will be protective against infection reinfection similar viruses and how long that lasts is still an open question yeah bro take care yourself thank you for coming on the radio any time take care all right there you have it there is a woman that did not have a fever but she had most of the symptoms and she went in and tested positive and she's been at home and she's getting much much better Dr Bensinger from northwestern hospital on the line we take a few more calls before the governor comes on yes all right let's go to Fran in park ridge Fran what is your question for Dr singer well I bought some hello I am a dine in when they came and opened the package I thought that they were produced in China I mean total wrapping all in Chinese the only thing in English with the alphabet puzzle and I just wondered before I give them to my grandkids for Easter are in a state stock ET yes I I would say that they are I think the the risk of transmission for a package optically that's been manufactured China or anywhere else ships and then sat it is very unlikely that there is any transmissible virus there I I think it's it's safe to give those puzzles after Easter all right let's try to bang a few of these out we got a minute left dating crystal lake what's your question for Dr singer from northwestern hospital hi there I had a splenectomy about twenty years ago and my more prone to infection so yet so there are many people that have had selected means following either car accident or for other reasons that are out there certainly as you as you know people with connecting these are at risk for bacterial infections and so we want to make sure that people selecting user are up to date on on a number of vaccines you're probably at you know different risk of getting the virus but what I would worry about it again this is speculation because we don't know about selecting these in particular is I would worry that that people slack to meet maybe at higher risk to develop severe complications because their immune systems aren't exactly what a person who has the screen might be so I think taking you know even extra precautions even beyond what you might normally do even with our social distancing it makes sense because because they think that that would be considered something that's that's higher risk than average all right thank you let's do you know what document have you hold on for one second I'm to take care of these commercials then we'll take you up to the governor okay Dr Ben singer from northwestern hospital is here three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred we have one open line we'll try to get these in before the

A mine vanishes, a court rules, and Alberta vs. Ottawa gets nastier
"There's no way to solve an energy issue in Canada right now without making some part of this country very very angry and now that the price of oil no longer guarantees a huge payoff in return for that anger. Companies are wondering if it's even worth attempting new projects tech resources announcing it's what's wrong. Its application for the frontier project. This comes just hours. After the Alberta government announced it struck a deal with to northern Alberta first nations. Of course you also can't just walk away from an energy project in Canada today without some people also getting very very angry but at least they won't be angry you. There is absolutely no doubt that this decision was taken in large part because of regulatory uncertainty and endless delays created by the national government by now. No one should be shocked to learn that. There's a lot of resentment of the federal government in Alberta. It's always been this way. It feels like it's getting worse and this time. Alberta probably has a point whatever side of the debate over climate policy versus energy policy. You might said on. It's clear that there's no big framework when it comes to approving or denying energy projects like the one tech has walked away from these projects seem right now to be handled on a case by case basis in Canada. Really continue to do business that way and if it does how will companies like tech choose which projects they push or wet and what comes home for the province of Alberta without a mine. They were counting on for thousands of jobs. Are we reaching a tipping point in the ever? Frayed relationship between the province and Canada's capital or at least the government currently sets there. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Jason Marcus off the Albert correspondent for Maclean's and also occasionally for US I Jason. Hello. Why don't you start for Ontarians and East coasters? Maybe everybody who hasn't had quite so much of an economic stake in this by just Sketching out what is tech resources. And what was I? Guess the Frontier Project Tech Resources Everybody should remember is actually not an oil company using its well companies who develop oil sands but this is actually a mining company. Their specialty is coal mines other mineral mines. They had dabbled a bit in oil sands being junior partner in one project and on this one they were trying to propose this one. All on its own This would have been an oil sands mine up quite far north of Fort mcmurray the most remote from the actual city of Fort mcmurray North East Alberta and this was one of the big classic mining projects where they basically dig up the muck the oil sands muck and refine it into `bitumen and keep refining it and keep refining until it eventually becomes oil. That's the classic oil says project. A lot of it has projects that had been developed in the last Five six years have been smaller projects where they just shoot a bunch of Stephen Chemicals and minerals into the oil sands well and dig it up. Those are smaller projects. This is going to be a big mega project. Two hundred and sixty thousand barrels a day at full completion twenty point six billion dollars of to construct this project of course though it was very hypothetical because what they needed to develop a beggar project was around seventy seventy five dollars barrel oil right now. We're at fifty. We habit around fifty four quite a long time and they needed pipeline. You know ones are coming. But it's not clear that there wouldn't necessarily be capacity if Trans Mountain and other projects don't come to be and they needed another partner to get this done big oil sands company or oil player to help them develop and finance this project and over the last five years we've been talking about companies leaving the oil sands. Nobody WANTS TO INVEST. Because it's high risk no intense carbon footprint Very controversial projects. So it was always very unlikely that this project might have ever been built. We were always debating hypothetical emissions hypothetical jobs but in Alberta of course people are very excited by those hypothetical jobs right but what killed it. Finally this week. Oh a few things. Different things killed it. I would be The decision pointed had Facing staring in the face Cabinet was supposed to It's deadline was this week whether it would approve the project reject the project. Or maybe give it some kind of deferral or delay and that's the cabinet in Ottawa. That's the at the Federal Cabinet Justin Trudeau's cabinet and for many reports a lot of cabinet ministers and certainly backbench. Mp's very split on this project. There was a lot of opposition a lot of these. Mp's are from you know. None of them are from Alberta. They're all from other provinces mostly in the east and those are places where there are not tantalized by this prospect of Seven thousand potential oil sands jobs. They think more about the the natural disturbance in an area that's actually in a bison range Very close to a UNESCO World Heritage Site National Park the Wood Buffalo National Park up on the border with North West territories and they would have seen this potential for four point one megatonnes of carbon emissions in the future Per year as we're looking to whoever deuce our carbon emissions normally and this is what tech and this is what other governments were used to This approval process cabinet decision. Making process was pretty much a rubber stamp if the technical review and the federal and provincial panels say this projects okay with conditions. That's what the federal government said liberal and Conservative in the past. They all approved it. That's why we have so many oil sands projects and a whole bunch more that are approved but not built yet. It's different times are shifting. The public public attention is shifting. Investor mood is shifting and so it's quite natural that a liberal government would shift with those times and have be hesitant on whether to approve this or not with this hesitation. Clearly tech thought. Maybe we're not going to get this. Maybe our lease is going to have a big fat rubber no stamp on it instead of a rubber stamping. Yes go ahead. So they decided rather than risk losing this project they pulled it. So what would be the rationale behind that as opposed to just letting the process play one way or another? I mean there are a couple theories out there. One is that a company wants to save face. It wasn't one all of its good intentions. All of its Its efforts to project a good project with good environmental credentials. All of its support for first nations in the region. They don't want all that to be faced with rejection. That's kind of a corporates much That basically what you do is not good enough for the federal government even though this is the defacto defacto message like that still. That's that's the reason you want to put this over. Check this out on your own terms. You want to be able to say what you say rather than Ottawa. Having its say on you another possible Rationale for this is that what are the reports that there is that they were feeling they were feeling that this was going to be delayed and they've sunk so much money into this more than a billion dollars into this planning and consultation process thus far project is valued at basically nothing in the markets according to a good global mail report haunt from their mining reporter and they just want to cut their losses another theory and this is one that I are partially hold. Is that what they had? Right now wasn't oil sands lease. They had a piece of land up in Northeast. Alberta with a proposed mine on it if they had approved mine on it approved mine project on this land. It's worth a bit where he can sell it to likely to find somebody else to take it forward. If this mining comedy didn't want to take this forward if they have rejected mine on it. This land is good for Bison and nature and not much else if they have if they have a hold withdrawn agreement on this proposal on this land. There's still the potential for somebody. Maybe someday in the future under some different government or some of their different perspective with a different proposal maybe with different terms to pick this up again so it could potentially salvage value in this lease. Although I would suggest that it's probably pretty nil at this point so I know you said that in Alberta it's kind of been a hypothetical For a longtime but there were at least a lot of hypothetical jobs in revenue there. So how has Albert or maybe just the leaders in Alberta because I don't WanNa pay the whole province With the brush but how is the Alberta government been taking the news the Alberta government like much you know is very aligned with a lot of the investor community in Alberta oil sands sector and a lot of the populace in oil producing regions like Fort mcmurray? And at least it was the idea that the there could be jobs in the future oil sands rests on two separate separate entities. I mean the whole soil says boo was to its operations actually producing oil sands and growth expanding oil sands and actually the big. The big source of jobs are in constructing these oil sands project and developing these oil sands projects and for years and years and years the big growth for Murray was not the people who actually mind. The product is people who build those minds and build those giant well sites and build the camps and all according structure around those the big boom ended because nobody was putting forward more projects to keep expanding back in two thousand eighteen Ford hills mine Which is the closest mine up to this? Where Tech was going. It opened a big mine owned by SUNCORP now. She partially owned by Tech Resources. It was called at the time in two thousand eighteen. Probably the last big oil sands mine. And that's because no other company was putting them forward except for tech resources. Big Long Shot Project. I may never be built. But but there was excitement in the oil sands community and in the government and in the sector because the potential the idea that another mind could be built is a jobs. Bonanza and sort of jobs bonanza we were used to Albert at developed this province as the screaming Beeman economic superpower. But that we haven't had so the idea that there could be another big mine on the books for when oil prices potentially rose again and it was approved the green light from Ottawa despite all our climate talk That was exciting. The that that the potential is snuffed. Out is a major disappointment here in. Alberta. Who are they blaming? For that disappointment because one thing. I will note is that this wasn't killed by Ottawa. Or was it almost killed by Ottawa? A even if they didn't rubber stamp it it was almost killed by Ottawa. That was the sense you know largely Ottawa. Ottawa was the decision maker in this point and if tech was very confident that this was going to get an approval they would have just Let that happen and would have been fine and Alberta would have been generally mall pleased that this was at least a in our project that could go forward right you know and do people here think Oughta killed it. Of course they do. This is the resource sector in government and Jason Kenny and Justin Trudeau. You know they are predisposed to blaming and directing scorn almost entirely Justin Trudeau for something and in this opportunity. They have a lot of. They have a lot of evidence that argues in their favor that had their Bandai conservative government or had there been a more classical government that just rubberstamps projects and doesn't really take into account all the cumulative impacts of Oil Sands Development and climate liability and climate risk. The this project would have
NASA Taps Snowstorm-Chasing Team To Improve Forecasting
"If you live in a place where it snows you probably know. The drill forecasters will predict a massive snowstorm. Grocery stores are emptied. And then there's just a light dusting getting. It happens every winter in part because we don't really understand how these storms work but a new study from NASA hopes to change that the impacts mission wants to improve our understanding of snowstorms and in particular of what are known as snow bands. Here to talk about the program. Is Lynn mcmurray. Principal investigator on impacts. Welcome thank you happy to be earned. So what exactly are snow bands. I've never heard this phrase before. Okay well within snowstorm which you have heard about the clouds associated with them Spent a large area. They can be you know is as far as Florida up to Maine but within those clouds. You have narrow regions where the snowfall is far more intense in the oftener organized in kind of a narrow narrow band and we just call those snow bands. Okay and how do you examine closely. These snow bands. I mean I understand that you're using to tair planes. Yes so this project a way we were going to investigate. These storms is fly to different aircraft. The first aircraft after fly high above the snowstorms. It will be equipped with remote sensing instrumentation. Okay and then the second aircraft will be flying inside the storm itself. I inside. It's making a different kind of measurements. It'll be measuring the environment in which the snowfall occurs. And we have these instruments called probes which which actually take pictures of the snow crystals themselves different altitudes you see different shapes crystals is absolutely fascinating. Eighty okay so how do these two planes help us understand how to predict snowstorms. So what we're going to be doing is investigating being the processes that create these snow bands. So trying to understand the science behind it and then also by because the one that's flying high has remote sensing instrumentation will help us be able to sense it from space better. The information from the remote sensing point of view view up above in inside. The clouds will also help us improve our forecast models which predict snowfall but need better Information about how that forms sue. How accurate do you think this study will help us get our predictions when it comes to snowstorms? Well hopefully much more accurate than we have now. right now do okay with the track of the large-scale storm certainly by twenty twenty four hours ahead of the storm but we don't have a good handle on a accurate predictions of the distribution of snowfall. Where it's going to snow heavily Lee where it's GonNa snow not at all and that's to do with these very small-scale narrow bands of intense snowfall so ultimately we'll have better forecasts of whether Boston or New York will get the most Snow Lynn? mcmurray is the principal investigator on Nasr's impacts mission. Thank you very much for joining us
"mcmurray" Discussed on The Down and Dirty Show
"Episode is a really cool to Jamie McMurray who, of course is working with NASCAR and FOX this year after retiring from NASCAR Cup series competition. At the end of two thousand eighteen and, you know, the story Jamie's won some big races. He's also had some down moments in his career, and now he is transitioning to television broadcasters. So he's doing some great things with NASCAR and FOX over there race hub and some pre ratios things like that. And we're gonna learn all about how the Transition's going, what has surprised him what's been enjoyable while was overwhelming at first, and so much more. So wonderful conversation. This is one of those conversations where I walked away, feeling, like I got so much more than what I expected going in, and I absolutely loved that. So Jamie was great. Chat great conversation.

DOJ may launch antitrust investigation of Apple, report says
"It was depending on how you look at it, an awkward bid of timing, smack in the middle of apples. Big annual developer conference today came word via Reuters that the department of Justice has been given jurisdiction over a potential antitrust investigation on that company. There have been similar reports past couple of days about possible investigations into Google and Facebook and Amazon, same general topic antitrust. So we've got the host of marketplace tech, Molly would on the phone and make me smart about all this. Hey, Ma, hey, so blood reports as I said, what do we know about what's going on? Well, we mostly know that this is about authorization and jurisdiction. So no that we know of no official inquiries are investigations have been launched. It's kind of about divvying up who's in charge of the Federal Trade Commission, and the department of Justice are are to kind of antitrust bodies right now. It sounds like the Justice Department's gonna take Google and apple as far as that goes and the FTC is going to stick with Amazon and everybody else. Everybody fishing. And with which they will have their hands full, right? But let's talk about department of Justice. What might they start looking into? Well, you know, there are a couple things at play here when it comes to this anticompetitive behavior. And that's mainly what they're worried about in terms of Google. It's going to be, whether you Google uses its dominance in search to then dominate digital advertising, and whether it prioritizes its own services at the expense of other so yelp and Tripadvisor have complained for years that Google puts sort of its own results in its own services at the top of search, and then, of course, the digital advertising market really is only Google and Facebook at this point when it comes to apple, it's whether apple is unfairly taking that thirty percent cut from services and subscriptions in the app store, and whether it prioritizes its own absence services, which it obviously does on its devices over potential competition. There has been also very much talk about regulation and privacy and all of that most of it happening, though over in the use so show what you know, in your experience is. The likelihood of this actually going anywhere in this country. Yeah. I mean, you know, look deciding who's got the badge is definitely not the same thing as an somebody to jail, and so far we have seen a lot of talk about action against these companies talk of privacy, regulation that, that has not turned into specific here in the United States. Whatever does end up happening happening could even just be more fines and consent degrees were a long way, you know, from breaking these companies up, but look the Justice department that serious business Microsoft lost ten years arguably of innovation to a Justice department investigation and had to profoundly changed the way it does business. So if they get in the game at a high level, it will shake things up a lot quick. Apple bonus question. We've got a half a minute left. They have largely been left out of this big bed tech conversation. Right has been Amazon, and Google and Facebook are the bad guys. Where's apple coming from on this? Yeah. You know, it's really interesting because the stuff that Microsoft did get sued for in the ninety s force bundling. It's browser and service. And apps. That's the literal hallmark of how apple works. It just hasn't been big enough to matter until the iphone got so dominant. It's a closed ecosystem. Right. Isn't that it absolutely? Is now that I phone is everywhere. And you know, credit to Spotify for raising the alarm about Apple's cut. That's what really focus the spotlight. Molly would the host marketplace tech also with me a podcast on which, like two weeks ago. Right. Molly, we talked about anti trust and big tech. It's called McMurray chiming perfect you to I think didn't think we'd we'd planned planned it it this this way. way. Molly would thanks. Molly. Thanks guy.
How your political emotions are monetized
"The yellow vest. Protests are real. Those are real people with real politics. Putting on that clothing and countries around the world and taking to the streets yell of protesters were out for the twelfth weekend of demonstrations, yellow vespers, March to denounce release violence as well as the government and the protests after yellow vest demonstrators hit the streets of France over taxes and the high cost of living similar movements of popped up around the world, including in Berta were bitter resentment about economic uncertainty are about to hit the road headed east. This movement is giving everyone inoperability to come out and say what they're unhappy with when those protests are over those people go home and log onto Facebook and Twitter and other platforms. They jump right in to the muddy as hell waters that make up any political debate online in those waters. There are extremists. And there are moderates, and there are curious bystanders. And there are people with worse intentions people who are either trying to make a buck or make you angry. Or both the world of politics is consumed with conversation about Botts spam and fake news as they should be the conversation is when he joined project between the Toronto Star. And BuzzFeed news began examining the online presence of Canada's yellow vest movement. There was one Facebook group that stood out to them as strange who was behind it. What was its purpose? And how could they pull that one page and particular out of the murk and focus on Wyatt existed? The story of the trail they followed leads us into the ugly underbelly of the internet where monitoring outrages lucrative, and where the citizens of become so mistrustful that even well-meaning real people might as well be robots that is sadly a big place, and it's eating up more digital real estate every day and this year Canada is one of its main targets. Jordan heath rulings. And this is the big story. Craig Silverman is the media editor at BuzzFeed news. And Craig before we get to what's fake about all of this can you please lay out. What exactly are the real yellow vest? Protests yellow vests is a popular movement originated in France, lers Lee started as a result of protests against a proposed new kind of gas tax that was going to be there. And then really morphed and became the kind of popular uprisings in France. It's not just kind of left and right. It's a whole smorgasbord of people who are in the streets in Paris and other parts of France, and they've been protesting there and it spread to some other places in here in Canada. We've now got kind of a burgeoning little yellow vest movement. It's not as big as what you saw in France. We you know, when the protests happened at the most the biggest have had like a couple or few hundred people a lot of times. It's people standing on the side of a highway with some signs, and it's very much rooted in opposition to the carbon tax and opposition to a lot of Trudeau's policies in. General right? And so what is yellow vest group dot com? And how does it tie into the movement in general one of the things that we've seen over the last? I don't know four to six months or so as the Elvis movement started to spread up and candidates that Facebook has been a big place where they've been organizing. So the main sorta yellow vest group has over one hundred thousand members on Facebook going back to the fall. We've just been kind of monitoring groups on Facebook pages on Facebook, not just yellow Vespa groups on the left groups on the right that we expect to be really active around you do. Well. So I have this weird beat and we have a small little team here in Toronto that does this particularly for for the whole world actually for BuzzFeed news, where we're very much focused on online misinformation, you know, trolling as well as all attempts to kind of manipulate or deceive using our new media world. So that could be social media websites. Botts trolls, all these kinds of things we have a sort of specialty in all the ways. People are faking stuff manipulating stuff online. Which kind of brings us right back to yellow vest group. Yeah. So explain what started happening or what you started to see when you're keeping your eye on it. So we're watching a lot of the right and left stuff in Canada online. We're also watching some of the Elvis groups because they're kind of political. It's interesting to see what's being shared there. And I saw this. This website pop up yellow vest group dotcom. I'd never seen a yellow vest website before. So that was the thing that piqued my interest. So now somebody's driving people to website is this like an official yellow vest website for Canada. Or is it something else? And so in looking at it, it only had two articles on it. And the thing that really stood out to me was it had ads on it. And I'm like, okay. So now, we have a scenario where perhaps there are people trying to make some money off of this movement. And this is a really common thing. I mean, we did a lot of reporting leading up to an after the twenty sixteen election in the US where we saw this huge explosion in what people came to call hypertension news. Very very pro right? Pro left. Not just disagree. With the other side. But the other side is terrible and whipping up sentiment whipping motion primarily on Facebook and people made huge amounts of money. Facebook is a great place to get people's attention. And if you can get their attention with a really outrageous or sometimes false headline. They're going to click, and they go to your website, and you make money for each visitor that comes to your website, and this this was a big thing in the US. And as we've been sort of thinking about what might happen in Canada this year, we sort of expect there to be some players who are profit driven rather than ideologically driven. So there's only two articles. But one of them stands out to you. Tell me what was in the article the one that had misinformation it so the article was built on three actual real new stories. But the key thing was the headline. And so the article was reporting how the town council in the sort of fort McMurray area had decided to put moratoriums on new job cans being built. So these were job camps from big oil companies where people would fly in they'd work their away from their family and then fly out and the. Town wants people to be more focused in the town itself, and they put a moratorium on these. And so that's real and the second thing that's real is that since about twenty fifteen there's been construction taking place on a new very large Islam center there. So for the Muslim community in the fort McMurray area. They've got a project that they're doing and the article connected. Those two things to basically say that there's no more job camps being billed in the oil sands because they're building a huge Slavic center. And a lot of the material that was being shared on the Facebook pages groups associated with this website was very anti Muslim a lot about sharia law and all these kinds of conspiracies a lot about and so that article got about fifteen thousand shares reactions and comments on Facebook, which is a pretty good amount of engagement for an article about you know, Canada and for an article in Canada in general from Canadian news media. So clearly, it was that misleading headline making people think, oh, there's no more job camps in jobs in the oil sands. Because of the biggest lung center. And what happened when you started this website picture interest? You started looking behind. Yeah. So the first thing that was clear is that nobody was actually claiming this. There is nobody saying, hi, I'm Jerry, and this is my website. And I love the elevators, and you know, I've been involved for a long time. And so one of the things that we looked at one. Of course, you know, there's ads on it. So is somebody making money? And then we also looked at how this website was being shared online. And we saw that there were accounts sharing. It very frequently basically spamming it all over Facebook into different yellow vest groups, and to me that again is behavior that says, okay? This is somebody who knows how to get traffic from Facebook and make money off of it. And so we just kind of went down the rabbit hole. Can we figure out who is actually behind this? Because it turned out that the two main Facebook accounts that have been sharing a lot of it were not really attached to real people. So we had kind of sock puppet or fake accounts. That were spreading this content. Driving people to the site making some money on it. And it certain point even started trying to get people to buy t shirts that had yellow vest slogans on. It how do you determine who's behind it? And who is behind it. Did you find out? Yeah. So we managed to figure out who is behind it. And one of the big kind of tip-offs was that the website where they were selling the t shirts is a site where anybody can sign up, you uploaded design, and you can start, you know, selling t shirts or mugs, and there was a username on that. And that username was different than the names of the Facebook accounts that have been sharing it, and it went to a guy named Craig Collins who lives in Albert who has worked in the oil sands, and who actually used to have a kind of side hustle, where he would create a jobs website jobs, like oil patch jobs dot com, where he posted job links and again the ads on the site, and he was flipping these sites. He earned over fifty thousand dollars the last three years creating and then selling to other people these jobs website. So we have somebody who understands how to kind of build a site monetize it, and then sell it, and who was actually actively concealing their identity as they were putting this yellow vest one out there did you find him. Found him send a bunch of emails. Tried calling didn't get a response. And then what we do a lot in journalism tickly within investigation is when you're about to publish something. And somebody is being cited in it. You send them what we call a no surprises. So I sent an Email with point by point by point saying, we're gonna report that the site is yours we're gonna report that you have a history flipping websites. We're gonna report that this. You know, indicates that this was a profit driven enterprise. And I also explained him that we were going to report that one of the articles that he created which went pretty viral on Facebook was also very misleading, and so just a few hours really before we were planning to publish got a phone call that was Craig Collins on the on the line how the conversation go. Well, I mean, his first words to me were total invasion of privacy, man. And so his feeling was that he had every right to conceal his identity into not have anyone know who was behind this website who is behind the Facebook accounts who is selling t-shirts and earning money from that. And that was his feeling and I explained. To him that, you know, this was a public website public issue. There was misinformation coming from his site. And that that doesn't give him the right to kind of hide who he is. And I also want to say like the person they don't necessarily understand the dynamics of libel and privacy law and things like that. So the fact that he was upset isn't surprising to me. But we ended up actually staying on the phone for like close to an hour. Talking a lot about it. We had quotes from him in the story. And he really wanted to emphasize that this was not him trying to explain the Elvis movement. He does agree with a lot of the stuff. But yes, he understands how to kind of you know, run a site and make money online. Where is the line? Is there align even between pages like this that are associated with real protests that you know, exist to coordinate the yellow vest movement and pages like this one perhaps that are dedicated to helping somebody profit off of it? How do you determine which is which looking at the website? The first thing was it has ads on it. A lot of advocacy sites. Don't have ads and also is this person going to great lengths to really promote the site and push it out there and the answer is yes, he was. And he was using to misleading impersonation Facebook accounts to spam. The stuff out there to drive that traffic. And so these are classic internet marketing techniques that we see. So with us having these hearings looking at this stuff that really fits that profile. But I think he believes the stuff, but I think he also saw an opportunity to capitalize on it. And so both things are kind of true. What are you guys do when you find things like this, which must be all the time? Do you take an active role in trying to get them removed or get them regulated or you simply reporting on them? And then kind of standing back, you know, there's a little bit of both, you know, one this is activity that's taking place on Facebook. And so if you're going to write about, it there is I think duty to go to Facebook and say, hey, you know, we found in this case we found to Facebook pages together close to about ten thousand likes. We found a Facebook group that he was running a private group that had about two thousand members. And then we found those two accounts that was spamming the content. And so we set all of that to Facebook and. We said, you know, we're gonna report on this. And I sent them the evidence that these accounts are probably not linked to real people, and we're probably violating their terms, and they did respond by removing the groups the two pages and the two accounts. Have you been seeing this kind of stuff not necessarily just associated with the Elvis, but this kind of hyper partisan political misinformation ramp up as we head into an election year absolutely us having spent the last roughly four years or so very focused a lot on US. But also, we done coverage about Germany, France, Brazil, even Japan other countries, we know that of course, this stuff kicks up a lot more when there's an election. So as baseline, you know, that's going to happen. But also Justin Trudeau has become a bit of a global icon of liberalism global icon of oke nece in some ways right of which some people love and some people hate, and so he is inspiring a lot of very strong emotions. And the second thing is that Canada has been pretty strong in measures against. Russia. And in fact, our foreign minister Christopher Lind is banned from Russia. And so all of those things, you know, as our team has been looking at it, we expect this to be really high water Mark for, you know, online campaigns and online manipulation and digital deception we expect a lot of those things to happen for this campaign in Canada. And the the increase in hypertension, news will absolutely be a part of that. I might be asking you to take me kind of down the rabbit hole here. But obviously there's a ton of partisan issues in Canada right now that people real people feel incredibly strongly about when you're looking at sites like this or or looking at the general spread of information Candida, how do you determine what is kind of good faith, angry partisanship, and what is an attempt to manipulate discord? So one piece of it is that there's nothing wrong with partisanship. And that's really really important because the danger in going too far with this stuff is that you start to squelch free speech or you start to get Facebook to have a really strong arm tactic. And that's not what we want. So you have to look at you know, one figuring out who's behind the stuff. That's really. Important who are these people are they genuine passionate person for politics or do they not care in? They're simply somebody trying to make money, and we found this in the US where literally there were companies whose job is just to run kind of niche websites would say oh politics is doing really, well, let's spend a Republican Silat spin up democratic site. So that was one indication was you had people playing both sides that clearly is not genuine partisanship. The Ellen of also the monetization piece are people actively making money from this, and you can have partisans for making money from it. But as people I've spoken to over the years, you know, they may start as a partisan, but eventually becomes a business for them. So that peace is aligned walk, but you really just have to investigate and figure out who's there and the patterns of the content that they're putting out in other cases, you know, the stuff that is completely false is it deeply misleading in terms of the headline creating false impression. So that kind of thing that doesn't help public debate that doesn't help disagreement and that kind of stuff, you know, needs to be looked at and needs to be flagged. And I think that's. Is important. And then there's also the element of attribution is this people actually in Canada who are actively involved in these sites, or can you actually trace it back to people outside of the country who are not Canadian to state entities to other people who want to influence the process, and that obviously is very problematic has it been weaponized in the other way now because one thing that I've seen a fair bit of is people accusing anyone who has a different opinion of them specifically when it comes to heated political stuff of being bought or being drills. And it's almost like now the disagreement itself has become a suspect. Yeah. We've we've gone over to somewhat into the other extreme of anytime. There's someone on Twitter who disagrees with them. Suddenly there bought their troll. And in our -bility to actually have a reason and fact face disagreement is a core part of democracy. It is a terrible thing of getting to the point where people will just write off anyone who disagrees with them as part of some kind of campaign. This is where I think journalists have to be really diligent about this work and actually figure out where is this coming from and not do lazy work where we just argue that anything that's anti Trudeau is, you know, part of some kind of disinformation campaign. Everybody has responsibility for this. And I think journalists again like us in the Toronto Star trying to look at this and trying to be diligent about it and show our work. So that people can make up their minds for themselves. What can ordinary digital citizens do not just necessarily to sort of diagnose the stuff and be wary about what they're reading and consuming, but also to sort of prevent the spread of it. Do you report it, do you reply to it and say, I know, you know, this is coming from somewhere else with the citizens arrest here. I think there's a few things that the average person can do the first piece is is just having awareness that in this median virement the stuff that you see that maybe has a lot of re tweaks or maybe has a lot of likes. It's easy to buy those. It's easy to manipulate those. So don't just go buy popularity alone. The second piece is to. About having a kind of pause. So in a lot of cases, especially with political stuff. They wanna get emotional rise to you that makes you share it. And I really encourage people before you take that action of liking or sharing a retreat or retweeting to actually pause and think about, you know, why do I wanna share this? Why do I wanna pass along is a possible that they are trying to get me to do something manipulating me? So the awareness and the pause or two really important things. And then the last thing is that you absolutely can report posts that you know, that are misleading that you think are part of some kind of larger operation or that you think are suspicious. It's absolutely something you can do. And of course, you could also, you know, send it to journalists local journalists national journalists to me, just tag you. And Jane, basically, and everything we we are absolutely happy to have that happen. And so, you know, those are those are things people can do. And I think overall I hope folks come away with it feeling like there is something for you to do you shouldn't feel overwhelmed by this. There are basic things that you can think about and do that are going to. You in the bigger picture? What is the long-term plan for this BuzzFeed Toronto Star project? The the overarching thing is we wanna look at the different players that are trying to influence public opinion and kind of play in the public debate. And so that's actually a pretty broad umbrella about it. It doesn't mean that everybody that we write about is going to be nefarious. You know, we're very interested in operations like on terra proud, and how started as an anti Kathleen Wynne thing. It's now expanding to be more national what role are they going to play in this election? And you know, this isn't a registered organization, it's somebody who's clearly a right of center partisan who's running it. They can exist in this space. But that kind of entity is a newer in terms of what we've seen in Canada. So we're looking at that. We are of course, interested can we find stuff that is originally from outside of Canada trying to influence the public debate. And also, I think we need to pay attention to any potential overreach by the social networks and also the government of Canada. You know, they're talking a lot about this elections can. Is looking at it. We don't wanna have hand government response either. And so we're certainly not just looking at you know, calling out stuff and exposing stuff. We're also trying to think is there any overreach by the platform. So the government as well to hate the term fake news. I do. I am tired of it. It must great on you after a while. It does. I mean, this is a term. I started using in twenty fourteen when I was doing a research project into the spread of rumors and misinformation online, and I didn't put a lot of thought into using it. And then, you know, used it again as we were publishing research, we're doing in two thousand sixteen you know, there was a certain amount of rigor that I used for it. It was completely false content. That was created to Steve and that had an economic motive that those are the three things that I use to identify fake news. There's no resemblance to what it's used to describe. You know, now, it's a catch all term mostly it's used by Donald Trump to condemn reporting that he doesn't agree with other politicians have kind of picked that up as well. I think Donald Trump has actually been very effective taking it and make. What he wanted to be? And so have unfortunately lot of autocratic leaders around the world, passing so-called fake news laws that are actually restraining press freedom in those places. So it's become a very loaded dangerous term in some ways. Did you coin you didn't coined the phrase? I mean, no, I didn't want it. It's a phrase that's been around for a long time. I think the most I would say is certainly helped popularize it in late twenty sixteen with some of the research and reporting that we put out there and graduations. Yeah. It's a great honor. And I will never escape it. I suppose do you think the government's need to regulate social media? I'm really big fan of governments threatening to regulate social media. I'm a big fan of them using it as a threat and getting the companies to actually take some responsibility for what is on their networks for a long time. The Facebook's and Twitter's and YouTube at the world have said, you know, we're just a platform. Yes. We have some rules. But you know, we're open and we're we're not like a new site moderate moderating content. Now, they have finally realized that they absolutely do have a responsibility. They finally realized that the outcomes of not taking you know, basic responsibility can really put people's lives in danger. I mean, the big sample of this is me, and mar where ethnic cleansing has happened. And you know, Facebook was the platform where a lot of this hate speech, and we're a lot of the organizing for this was taking place. So I like governments really putting the pressure on them to come up with better solutions putting pressure on them to be more transparent. But there's a very you could see a lot of bad laws potentially being drafted that could end up siphoning, free speech. So I am a bit wary of. Of seeing a lot of legislation come into play. My last question. Do you have a personal Facebook account, the us to talk with your great, enter, whomever? I do how do you feel about that? I. So I recently deleted in the Instagram off my phone for variety of reasons. One of which is just a mandated that they collect. I keep the Facebook app on my phone mostly because use Facebook so much for work. There's only so much research you can do of things happening on Facebook without being signed in. So I'm very conflicted about it. I don't post a lot. I don't share a lot. I don't engage a lot because I look at Facebook, and I see all of the data collection. And you know, it's sort of like seeing through the matrix. I can't look at it. And just enjoy my friends photo of their kid. I see all the other stuff around.
Canadian air traffic controllers send pizza to unpaid U.S. counterparts
"So the government shutdown means that air traffic controllers have been forced to work without being paid. And this is kind of a cool little thing. That's happened. Now that part's not cool but air traffic controllers in major cities in Canada have begun to send pizza. Pay for pizza and send it to air traffic controllers in America. Kind of is a nice gesture of Heber with you. Well, you know, if you're not getting paid, the least you can do is just get some free food. Right. Yeah. So it started Edmund Edmonton Alberta, Canada and Alaska share airspace. They against each other. And so those air traffic controller units need to work together. So air traffic controllers in Edmonton Canada sent pizza to Alaska. And now, it's just snowballed. For instance, there is a big oil town in candidate called fort McMurray.
