Also by the way they're seeing the situation must be so dire that okay so america superior to mexico. I didn't say that they coming here for a different life for a better life in a better country can't say that is the united states a better country than mexico el salvador. Let's start with that. If your answer is anything. Other than the united states is better than all south amac than all latin american nation's. Okay you have no talking about open borders. How about that you have to answer. The united states is superior. He can't say that will. All cultures are different. Cultures are equal by the way we have to let people in because they're coming from these hell holes. You can't have that both ways. Yeah this is a three and a five year old by the way if you watch that. Video it's heartbreaking as a father because you've got a five year old being dropped what fifteen feet or so and then a three year old right after that and then the five year old probably crying walks over to the three year old and picks her up or him. I can't i can't tell which it is right and you just like these people are scum because whoever they were the region as we sh- she wants to call them just put kids like what if they made a mistake. What if the kid broke their leg on the fall and couldn't get up and walk to the town if you can't get there to get the kid back you're done well. Kids bounced back.

"Hi thanks for having me no problem. Why don't you start by just telling me about kind of the the stereotype or the image that most Canadians have of rental units Montreal in the renting culture? There in General Yeah Montreal. Has this kind of permanent reputation as the place to go? If you WANNA live cheap in Canada it is known for having affordable rents All departments. You know those famous spiral staircases. You could live and be an artist or permanent student which a lot of people opt for musician writer. You know you could actually do what you WanNa do in your life and live reasonably well. That's that's kind of the impression people have and that's the impression that they've had for a long time but I don't think that that's necessarily true anymore. We'll tell me what's been happening You describe in your story of a woman named tenured wok so Tanna is just one of the many people who I spoke with for this article. Antennas story is about how a one day. Actually it was Christmas Eve. She was getting ready to be to go to her parents in the suburbs of Montreal for Christmas celebration and she got a knock on the door and it was her new landlords and they said You pay rent to us now and then she said Oh okay. I didn't realize a landlord was selling the building. Are you gonNa make any repairs to have a few things that I need repaired? And they're like actually we're going to repair the whole building. Emigre convert everything to AIRBNB. Kick everybody out. So that was the start of her. Long protracted battle which is still ongoing today and this is something that's happening to a lot of people throughout Montreal and actually throughout Canada. I would say and probably anywhere where you'd be exists so around the world so. When did this start to Happen Montreal? And why in particular in? Montreal what changed. It started getting pretty bad in Montreal around. I would say probably Twenty Sixteen. Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen is when people really started to notice the squeeze and I think there wasn't really a really noticeable. Change like there was nothing. There is no one thing that happened. That made this squeeze start tightening. It was more an accumulation factors. So one is that people started noticing. That AIRBNB was a pretty lucrative venture. And if you had the capital to invest in property Why wouldn't you just go ahead and do that? And then instead of renting to long term tenants just convert your rental units into short term rentals. So more and more people started to do that with property so that was one thing that happened. And then I you know over the next few years Quebec and and the rest of Canada speaking specifically about Montreal Allot of migrants came into Montreal people from war torn countries but also people from France Students people coming from other parts of Canada and the US coming to study. There are four major universities in Montreal. That have forty thousand students per school. There are a lot of young people that are you know transitory instead. There's just a lot of people coming in and out of Montreal and so that was one of the other factors and people immaterial. Who lived there for a long time? They were just kinda used to the deal. You know you have a July first to June thirtieth lease and if he decided to leave it historically. It hasn't been hard to find another apartment you can just look on. Pj gee-gee or craigslist or facebook now and just find a new place to live. But that's really changing and a lot of the people who I spoke with say that it's super competitive. There even overbidding on apartments just trying to find a decent place to live. That's not infested with bugs. Rodents And it's really tough out there for a lot of people and we've heard similar stories about you know overbidding or huge amounts of competition for places Here in Toronto. But I can't imagine what kind of crisis that must create an city where like almost everybody rents right so tell me a little bit more. I guess first of all about the traditional moving day because that's very unique to Montreal Quebec Wide Policy. But because Montreal is the biggest city and because as I mentioned earlier there so many students in Montreal in particular because so many of Quebec's migrants are located in Montreal. Montreal really is the nexus of moving day And so what moving day is is it happens around July first so it used to just be July first But now it's kind of like two weeks before in two weeks after July first and now it's spread even further than that as people get more and more desperate to find housing and basically it's the time when everybody moves so In previous recent years I would say I did a story for city lab last year where I got figures that said seventy thousand. Households moved like in one summer While so you know in but people are used to this dance you know. It's it's just baked into how people live Montreal. The reason why back has this policy is really just because at some point Maybe forty years ago. The Quebec government decided to have moving day and it was supposed to be like a temporary measure. You know it was supposed to be like a a suggestion. But then everyone was like well. Let's just keep a July? I make things easy so it just kind of became the defacto rule. So there's kind of a system in place for a culture that relies on renters and tenants and landlords moving around at a certain date And it's competing with a run on airbnb properties And this is something. We've seen lots of cities. But but what's happening now or what's going to happen in the next few months as Montreal grapples with Colvin Nineteen. Yeah well WHO KNOWS? Really? It's changing every day. It seems that The situation is pretty dire. You know people in Montreal are used to living pretty much paycheck to paycheck. There's a lot of service industry people in Montreal Metro so famous for its bars and restaurants but what happens when all those businesses have to close all those people are out of work and the government has promised assistance to those people? But it won't come by the first. So what are those people do to pay the rent and so there is a growing movement for Rent Strike? But it's not a ten versus landlord tight situation. What they're calling for. What the with these people behind the rent strike movements white sheets for the rent strike are calling for is to have tenants and landlords get together because they're both kind of screwed yeah like the government and banks have said okay. We're going to allow people to have mortgage deferrals but good luck. Finding anyone who's been successful in actually getting through to their bank to get a deferral especially if you're a landlord who has rental properties you know it's very difficult to actually get that deferral on time and so it's just kind of getting everybody together and saying like we just can't pay for housing right now if you want us to stay inside put your money where your mouth is and make a stay inside. Sure don't make us live in the situation where we kind of feel pressure to work regardless of You know what's happening with the pandemic in terms of housing There's the rent strike the other jurisdictions in people for example. I saw British Columbia. There's been a moratorium convictions. the government has an add some kind of rent support. There are different measures being put in place. But it doesn't seem like it's really enough For the actual situation with regards to what's happening with Airbnb as what a lot of people are doing or what I've seen on facebook groups where people have apartment listings and stuff like that. You can see like tons of fully furnished apartments suddenly up for rent. That you know are obviously airbnb. That people can't rent tourists because they have like really nice pictures in. They have pictures of like folded towels on the bed and tables set with dishes like pictures you would see on airbnb except there on rental groups now and the owners of these babies are so desperate to get any income they can't. They flipped their short term. Rentals back onto the long term rental market even just marketing them as sublets or temporary rentals. So they're not even promising to put them back on the long term rental market. They're just trying to fill the gap while the pandemic continues to ravage their investments so traditionally what options do tenants in Montreal and Quebec. Have to protect themselves from this kind of stuff. And and what's the government doing now because again you mentioned Policies against fictions NBC There's also one and Ontario. What are they doing given the fact that they have a higher percentage of renters than almost anywhere right so the rental tribunal has stopped listening to eviction hearings so people can't be evicted right now for not paying their rent in Quebec and So that's that's a positive for tenants but of course like no one likes to be in disagreement with their landlord. The stress will carry over into future minds senior relationship overall with your landlord. So that's not good. There's also the factor that because any lease is a contract between two individuals. The Quebec government can't override bad agreement and dictate terms to anybody. So what it singing and with the city of Montreal saying is it sure would be nice if you would give your tenants a break but you know it it. It just seems as though some landlords are more generous than others and the province and the city are really relying on the generosity of landlords to get renters through this. I mean I'm a layperson but that doesn't sound like a recipe for everybody. Getting what they need. No it's not. What should we be looking for in Montreal In the next few days and weeks then. Will we get a sense Now that it's April first Of How many people are taking part in the rent? Strike how widespread it is How many landlords are giving people a break? We're going to start seeing that anecdotally or is it big enough. That people will notice the white sheets for the rent strike movement. So what they're asking is that they want people who either can't afford their rent now or people who are just supporting people who can't afford their rent to hang a white sheet out of their window off the balcony at the front door. Whatever just a show of solidarity so anecdotally like if you're walking around in Montreal might be able to see that this movement has already spread. I don't know how big it is but you know there have been pictures online of people doing it as far as Chicago Los Angeles Either our talks of rent strikes across Canada You know in big cities and small communities to so we'll see you know people may have had enough savings to pay for April first. But who knows what's going to happen for me. I if this condemn it keeps getting worse. You know like people might still be having to stay at home for the entire month of April in then at that point their savings for most service industry people at least for most people living paycheck to paycheck. They're savings will be decimated at that point so I think April I will be an interesting task but by may first the crisis will be far more advanced and then my last question I guess is. Has Anybody been thinking about what happens if this last longer than than we think? I mean. We're being told three months six months etc and some places and what happens on moving day if if Montreal still under lockdown I don't know what will happen on moving day. I think governments are going to have to seriously consider how they're going to deal with property owners especially people who own rental properties because a mortgage deferral may still come with interest in it may affect your credit and they're not necessarily that easy to get and so people are really desperately looking for solutions. In Canada and Quebec have been really good about announcing all kinds of bailout measures for all kinds of different organizations businesses. Trudeau has announced You know keeping afloat. Small medium and large businesses seventy five percent of businesses will be able to keep people on payroll just because they don't want like huge massive unemployment. But what are they gonNA do for for? Renters like people still need a place to live in. His generous people may be in his understanding. Is People may be like people still need to pay their bills at some point. So you know we'll see as April goes on how the situation develops right now. It's kind of the beginning Because it is the first of April but as may first comes around it will be totally different ballgame. Thanks for explaining the situation of Montreal to us. Tracy.

"Talk to me about numbers here. Like how many people is bombarded employing in Quebec. I imagine and the number is a little bit less today because of these layoffs in recent years. It's a bit less today but Just to kind of give you a sense of bombarded employs ploys about twenty thousand people in both Quebec Ontario. But it's real I think impact in Quebec is particularly in the aerospace industry industry. That's an industry that employs currently about more than forty thousand people in Quebec alone. Either about two hundred companies that You know exist as is in some way either supplying bombarded by Training that kind of stuff like that. And so this is this is a business An industry that's worth almost fifteen billion dollars in Quebec and at the heart of that business is bombarded bombarded is making planes right. It's not just bombarding itself but also the complex network at work businesses around. So we've got this company with this incredibly symbolic importance in Quebec but then of course this economic thank importance and this has bestowed on bombard ea some political sway over the years. And what has that political sway. Look like the political sway. I think has looked like the expectation that when the going gets rough. The Quebec government will be there eric to support bombard. Da In one way or another. The Quebec government was there in the nineteen seventies when Lombardi a look to expand into to the transportation industry. It help facilitate the deal that a lot of to build a Montreal metro cars throughout its history. The Quebec Quebec government and also the federal government has been there to help bombarded along the way especially at these key moments where it seeks to expand where seeks to diversify Fi. Its business operations. The federal government has invested more than two billion dollars in Canadair. Since it bought at ten years ago. It won't get that much back. It has promised to keep Canadair in Montreal and just to kind of give you an example of how how contentious has been a certain points in its history. Not only today but in the in the mid nineteen eighties when bombard Jay was just getting into aerospace. The government is big contract for the maintenance of the F.. Eighteen th the fighter jet whoever wins the job will get access to some of the world's most advanced technology and make up to one point. Eight billion dollars over twenty the years and bombarded was competing with a company from Winnipeg called Bristol Aerospace now Bristol Aerospace actually put in a lower bid for vista to remain in the aerospace space business. It needs the CF eighteen contract. It's already spent five million dollars preparing for it. The company expanded its facilities installed a computer system mm-hmm but the government chose to give the contract Lombardi. Instead the pressure from Quebec increased last month premier. Robert BOURASSA had a private meeting with Prime Minister. Mr Mulroney they discussed the eighteen and that costs such an outrage. The Time Sucha such anger a west and it was actually one of the things that people think led to the creation of the Reform Party. And so you know that's a that's a narrative Canadian politics over obviously seeing the The repercussions and you went today. Right Right And then obviously this most recent bailout. We're talking to sales sixteen two thousand seventeen The federal government government provided with three hundred seventy two point five million interest free loans. The support will help ensure that are thousands of engineers. There's and technicians will continue to push the technology envelope in commercial aerospace and then the Quebec government provided about at one point three billion as a direct investment equally controversial at the time. And why did they do that so at the time bombard. Va was basically on the verge of bankruptcy The CEO at the time. I'll aim bill. Maher was actually still the CEO. Now Set an interview that bailout. It prevented the company from going bankrupt. And the company was in that financial position that difficult financial position because it had invested all this money money in developing a new jet this What was called the series? It's going to be a fancy new jet who is going to allow imparted to compete with Big AAC aerospace industry players like Boeing and Airbus. It's a whole new design airplanes so this airplane is pushing the envelope as far as design. It will be the a game changer for the next twenty years but it ended up costing the company a lot more take a lot more time and so over that period the company ran into serious financial the difficulties. And that's when the Quebec government came in with his one point. Three billion dollar investment in basically took a forty nine point five percent stake in the series program. AM and there continued to be problems at this program right even after the bailout. So one of the first thing that happens is the big competitor Boeing decisive strike back. And what Boeing does convinces the US government that You know this this bailout is is allowing wing kind of an unfair subsidy and that you should the. US government should slap a huge import tariff on Lombardi eighth the the US Department of Commerce hit Canadian aerospace giant bombarded with an additional eighteen percent tariff. Today that's on top of the two hundred and twenty percent in countervailing duties already already slapped on the company meaning the cost of those see series jets. That Delta wants to buy will quadruple so that drives up the cost of its planes in the US. It really hurts. Parts bombarded chances of of recouping immediately some of the prophets in it. The bailed itself ends up becoming politically toxic and in the province because what happens a year after the bailout bombarded as board of directors decides to give raises to all the executives that give fifty percent raise to to C. Suite people in Quebec. Saying what's going on here guys like your we just gave give you a huge bailout and you're giving people raises all over the place. Lining the pockets of the one percent of the one percent with tax dollars. Isn't the prime minister. IMBERA how is this helping the middle class speaker. I'm happy to correct the number opposite. We made a loan to bombard repayable loan I wouldn't either will ensure good jobs in the series and there were layoffs around the same time right and then layoffs time so there layoffs in two thousand sixteen layoffs to seventeen another big round of layoffs in two thousand eighteen Twenty five hundred people in the company doesn't really do much to explain why it's laying off people and now more Ormeau. Politicians are getting on The Bandwagon so to speak in questioning what we're getting out of this one point three billion dollar investment it's around the the same time that because sales are low A. bombarded is looking at Reducing its liability in the series the series and so what it does in order to kind of reduces liability and bring on more production capacity. Is it sells the series program. MM for one dollar. Two Airbus safely put Airbus brings global reach and scale it gives greater confidence the new customers and exit rates commercial. Momentum's Airbus is the controlling stake in the series Acer's and it goes on to rename the season series. Eight to twenty and that too that a lot of people to question. What's going on of embody? The basically just gave away this program. The Quebec government had invested one. Point three billion dollars in to get off the ground right and of course Airbus is a French Plane Manufacturing Company. Oh yes exactly. The women's we have announced ear. We've all BUCKNELL's. He's a commitment to Canada and to China an agenda industry here in Quebec and all across the.

"Hey John Hey Jamie still before we get to bombard as current predicament. Take me back here. To the humble roots of Bardia. We heard a bit of that heritage. MINUTE MR LA- fun. How much do you want for this? My tools are not for sale. I can pay. I had completely forgotten that they had a heritage Bennett. How is this company born? There's a whole urgency right. Yeah Yeah exactly. So so Joseph Armand bombarded by was he was a kid who loved to build things and he'd been tinkering for a while with how to design fine Kind of snow craft That would be able to get places through this thick snow and basically the the model had been working king with the time was what was essentially a car on skis. It worked a little bit but it wasn't wasn't that great and then one day nineteen thirty thirty four the middle of the big snowstorm his son sons appendix burst and because of the snowstorm. They weren't able to get him to hospital spital in time and his son dies. And according to the legend that really Motivated Joseph Alma Bombard Jai to pursue his development of the snowmobile. And just a few years later he begins to to roll out Working models. For what will we now know as a snowmobile ski too and he kind of the kind of trick that the missing piece was track on the bottom that he needed to add To go with the to go with the skis and so by the early forties. He's building These snowmobiles from his his his shopping in Volker Quebec and you know and and enjoying a modest success at the time ski doing is a fast growing sport to which more and more Quebec outdoor enthusiasts are becoming addicted each month ski doozer appearing on the highways and Ski Hills in the Laurentian resorts in fact most hotels and Quebec. Now renske news. You know of course. The company expands into the sectors like trains and planes stuff that we ride today and remains headquartered in Quebec and John talked to me about the significance against this company has in Quebec because of course it's a company that we know across the country but I always find it so fascinating. The place laced holds in Quebec. Four quebeckers it has a tremendous political significance cultural significance historic significance economics because given some in the province Bombarded begins its expansion. It's GONNA global expansion in in the nineteen sixties when again The markets the markets. Kinda change and early Seventies. You get Oil crisis there's a recession and the company needs to find other stuff to build because people stop buying snowmobiles. Excuse that kind of stuff like that. And so the mayor of much wealth. The time as guy called John Poe says goes to the Head of the company that time a guy called the by the name of law rumbled ways. You know what you should really bid on the contract to build a Montreal Metro cars and so here you have bombarded wins the contract bills a Mucho metro cars. There's and it's one of the the moments where bombarded begins to kind of integrate itself into the littoral infrastructure of the the province in Montreal. The son do made its debut. The Bombard Plant has produced. Its first light rapid transit vehicle. It's called the L. R. RC. The initials stand for light rapid and comfortable and through this period bombarded begins to grow and always grows with the the roadway bombarded family at the head there francophones and because they are francophones. They kind of are part of this movement in Quebec at the time People Call it Quebec Inc which basically the this movement to support Francophone Entrepreneurship support. Businesses being owned by francophones phones. which was a big reversal from the situation that existed prior to the quiet revolution right and the quiet revolution? This was as period in Quebec. It was all about francophones. Essentially like agitating for more control of the province yes so basically Business in Quebec back was dominated by anglophones up until the quiet revolution until the nineteen sixties. You know all the all the financial services industry the banks and all that kind of stuff they all the upper management. We're anglophones if you own a factory chances are it was. The factory was own by anglophone and the francophones were the workers and so even though the it was francophones may the majority are the majority in Quebec. They kind of occupied A minority when it came to owning the the means of production and DOT begins to shift in the nineteen sixties and in the nineteen seventies and one of the companies that is really held out as the standard undersheriff of that movement is bombarding..

Her books are current. Book is called on Flyer so Let's give let's listen to what we recorded just a few days ago in the great state of Iowa this is rumble and this is Michael. Michael Moore welcome to my podcast. We are still on the road here in Iowa. It's been an amazing week and today I'm spending All of my day with one of my heroes. You don't mind me calling you. A great thinker do is Because the reason I don't like that in a way is because you're also one of the great doors and We have a lot of great thinkers and we have a lot of great activists and you have married the two you for many many years. I am of course talking to and about Naomi Klein the Great Naomi Klein author activist filmmaker. So many things and I think probably I learned of you with your book no logo and since then she's written the shock doctrine and the book out Over the last few months called on the fire first of all. Thank you for for doing Mike. I'm thrilled to be with you. You grew up in Canada. Janada farm correct it was Vancouver Toronto. It was actually Montreal Montreal Metro I and I went to Toronto for the university And then my family my parents moot at moved to British Columbia so So I'm connected to those three. Replace it right. Yeah you know your writings in your work over the year Inspired many things many actions. you know you are I I would say one of the the Godmothers of occupy Wall Street I mean this is A lot of the thinking around that came out of of new and others. But you have not been afraid to deal in grapple with Things that oftentimes say liberals are nervous about saying the word capitalism for instance. How did you how do you get to be who you are and how much of that is because you got to grow up in Canada? It's a it's a I don't know if there's a simple answer to that question. Probably view that develop somewhere absolutely. Yeah absolutely and I should say that. I don't. I think I was writing as Sir frontally about capitalism. All of this time you know what I wrote when I wrote no logo I was writing about corporate power and corporate Robert Rule but maybe I was a little shy to actually say you know this is. This is the system That that has entered into this predatory Tori phase but it's her built into the DNA of the system. And it's something I've learned as I went along you know I was. I was a child of the eighties and I came. You know became an adult in in the nineties and it was the peak era of triumphant. market fundamentalism. And I I was I was always on the I guess. On the left as a student activist I was very involved in in women's issues issues And I was the first first issues I wrote about were had to do a sexual violence on campus And end but I do think that growing up in Canada shaped my world view. I live in the states now I have dual citizenship I just say this you not make clear that that I don't represent foreign interference in the American election because we are here in Iowa campaigning for Birdie but you know I'm legit I I live in the states. Eight thousand and allowed to vote and all that But I the reason why I'm American is is because my my parents are American. My grandparents were American. The parents moved to Canada in the late sixties because my father is a war resisted in one didn't want to go to Vietnam and and then we ended up staying in Canada and we went back to the states for a little bit But when he went when he in your mom went to Canada as a war resister. That meant that at that time it was probably hard for him to come back and visit family or whatever in the in the states maybe for younger people to understand this. Yeah it was. I mean we were. It was only my nuclear family. My parents my brother and I who who lived in Canada everybody else? WHO's in the United States including my half sister who is in California And and and the rest of our whole extended family was was across the border and the and and I remember growing up that borders were always stressful And we did cross the border but it was always her stressful. My parents still had their American passports. They were worried that things would come up on a search but at that point. You know there weren't the same kinds of there wasn't the same kind of computerization later. There was the Carter. Pardon that made it less stressful to to cross the border but my parents actually Did move back when I was very young in the seventies And an actually. He decided that they wanted to return to Canada. Not as war resisters. But because my father's by choice because my father worked in healthcare my father's a family doctor and And these were the years that that that Medicare was was was becoming a national program. It had been a provincial program and it was really getting rolled Out Nationally and he wanted to be part of a healthcare system that was truly universal. And he wanted to be part of a building that and and and he had been very upset about his experience working in the US healthcare system. And so I I sometimes say we like we left because of the war but we stayed for the universal healthcare right the so so basically he was resigning. I I should apologize cheaper because I feel like there. Is You know. I don't know how closely you read on fire on fire Emoji as you mentioned and that was my idea and I did have to fight to have Alabama we are in a post literate world but my publish. I'm of my publishers. Have this weird idea that words still matter we should still use them but luckily my American publisher publisher was just like L.. Let's just go with the EMOJI and I love I like it too But just before we leave. Your parents wanted to apologize because I I have. I have an essay in that book where I talk about growing up as a as a child to war resisters and that their vision of Canada. AH The super idealized vision of Canada as Americans that I said is a little bit like watch like growing up inside and Michael Moore movie. Where like candid knowing? Lots their doors. And everything's perfect perfecting candidate. We always complained about this. We have problems. Michael Moore have colonial violence and racism and we suck as well on lots of other level. Yeah Yeah I hear this all the time..
"montreal metro" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Your motor skills to advance you through this I can we do twinkle twinkle little star host. But then I realized that's not what I wanted. I just wanted attention and I just I start finding standup big big moment for me. Oh Yeah when did that happen. I was sixteen sixty. Now how does that coincide with coming out and our stand up and well I was. I didn't know anyone who's gay knows you always know you're gay. And then you but you never know like dreams of like hugging Jennifer Jennifer Love Hewitt and feeling her breasts against my body but still in my mind being like it would be the friendship of a lifetime. Yeah so I was doing jokes when I was sixteen about. Like you know when you have a crush on a guy that he likes you back. And you're like disgusting gotTa have friendship. Is Everything thank you and your friend gets boyfriend and fucks everything. I Friday's these fucking cooties. Am I right girl. Surreal and they're on Dick's yeah So yeah it was. I was onstage. You're listening to WANNA be your own sets. Wait a minute I actually went went to just for laughs laughs and fell in love with one of the drivers at the festival. That was first girlfriend. Yeah Wow yeah and this is in Montreal Metro Montreal a- a- and how are you a teenager I'm a teenager I'm eighteen. Wow She was twenty seven wow and wrote a motorcycle and like so. I had this whole gay life in Montreal with like leave Ryerson where I went to school hop over to the bus station. Not Tell anyone and told my parents I was doing like an overnight Gig or something and then like take it like an eight hour greyhound. It's only like a five and a half hour drive but it was on the bus like eight nine hours just to like kiss her you know. And they feel all warm and cuddly so nice yeah. There was a darkness to that relationship for sure. Like if I painted the whole picture I mean in the beginning was an affair. I just thought you know because in the beginning I thought this is going to be like the pattern is when I love some when I have a crush on someone and then they like me. I don't like them. Yeah so I was like this'll be an easy way for me to like. Have this sort of like detour into being a lesbian Dabble Dyke and then get back to being a serious Jessica Alba tight right right. The Pop Star Ism put my fly back on my head and kiss boys well and also to regardless of sexuality or sex six twenty seven and eighteen is fucking weird it definitely is. I was twenty seven. I remember thinking that but you know there was just this. I think at the same time I was doing in terms of like career and career maturity and just like self actualization aside from my sexuality. Pretty I was around her. Oh Wow but in terms of and there's something I think that that's another Hollywood thing where you were. I mean like Dane Cook is dating. I mean it is weird. You're not in a great. I don't think you're in a the most evolved hoped place when you are you know matching with people who are just starting to discover themselves. Actually I think it's kind of. There's an dare definitely Tom. Age differences are completely possible. Possible answer like forty year old in a nineteen year old. That's fucked up. Yes yes weird. Yeah and it's kind of the mentality around it for like some browsers like yeah second game. The system did I got myself a young handbag. Handbag the woman because Broza love describing cool things as handbag. Check out this handbag handbag bag alive character which you suck my Dick Dude. Well all right stopping a faggot. Suck this debt. Okay then we do need nourishment. Am I suck my Dick Connect with me in a way that I can't connect with the win- date because girls are putting your Dick in right at Geyser for for connections for talking Guiseley handbags of people. What you said it again do? Do you know just being fucking queer that time fucking Dick head why we do okay man. You're my handbag Bro. Dude fucking love you so even after you have this relationship with the person with this Becua- biker. Yes yes you still are like. I'm not I come from the relationship because I think it takes oftentimes because it's such a leap especially if you've normalized Heterosexuality you I remember like crying in like being like out with my friends at a bar and like going into the bathroom and being like texting girlfriend. None of my friends knew and like kind of crying and like looking at myself in the mirror and being like no and I wouldn't even say like you're not gay GEICO that would be to look at myself and be like no like this is not happening. This is not because there was so much shame I was watching watching old episodes of friends. And like there's like this whole runner with Chandler. It's like he's gay. I don't WanNa fucking joke like the joke of being gay. At that time it was. I loved friends ends. You know but just thinking about what that was doing to my brain like the pop culture attitude around being gay was and also it being being in the key being entirely acceptable thing to use as an insult. Yeah Ardy US as something like you're less than I did nothing against it but just I think I do think that we need as we like. Take the words away from like gay. There was a meaning for when you said sapping so by a meaning behind that we haven't replaced. Yeah and the R. Word To. I think we need to replace the words. Yeah like our word we should replace with blue which in order for like that word adjacent talking about. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Okay but starting to do the same thing well. I don't think that let loose connected with mental health. I think lose just or do for low. It's not the same thing it's not like it's the message is your I mean like yeah I guess but wouldn't it just become meaning. Wouldn't it just eventually mean something. This missive thing that would replace a gay. It meant something different than like you want. I mean like big. There's an overlap if you call a guy gay for being emotional yeah now. It's like you're looking at your gate but like it's like extra and like kind of like Fussy or like yes to me like my mother. Mother has a hard time being emotional into her. I think emotions are gay but it doesn't. It's not gay. Doesn't mean it's too. Yeah it's not that it's just like it's like I. I think it might be from the form. Gay Happy like the one game at happy being happy. Happy kind of stupid in that like it's like frivolous. Yeah Yeah Yeah anyways that whole period was about realizing like Oh my God. There's something so undeniable when you fall in love it's like this I. I can't argue this and also this doesn't doesn't feel wrong. Yeah so kind of undoing all the messaging and realizing like Oh my God this is what makes me happy and stop saying no in the mirror and yeah and start saying Bergman. I wish I didn't go there So so I started to realize in the interesting thing is like when I started doing stand up. I was doing also a lot of jokes about having a Muslim family post nine eleven and it was so powerful because it was like. Oh look at this kid. With braces says kind of like changing the messaging and they all came from this really honest place a feeling frustrated about the way Muslim people and Brown people were being portrayed sure and and because of that had a lot of success really fast with stand up. Yeah I ha. I completely lost that. The lesson from that. When I realized realized I was gay I was so scared to come out on stage even though it come out to my family my friends I felt so scared to come out on stage? I felt like well Ellen came under show that got cancelled there were successful comics. Told me not to come out. It was just like wow. And now I look at like Boeing Bowen and Mat Rogers Roger's and like just like the Queer and Patty and just like the freeness in the queer comedy scene. Now and I'm just so I feel so so happy about a Feel about it. I liked when I felt when Chris Kelly was running. SNL I felt snl like was gay like so many sketches that were before midnight. That would have been relegated to so deepen and sometimes just like so weird. Yeah it's so I mean I think we guess we kind of touched on this idea like going you know putting on all these mass just to come back to is like Oh my God. It's so much better to just be you like this kind of conversation where we're just being ourselves like so much more interesting than like if I'd come here with a bunch of jokes that I'd written right right and one. Oh I wouldn't have a pod cast can you know then no no I get really then. She got really listen up saying words. which but that podcast? When when comics have podcast and they go to comedy festivals? The podcast sells out before the comic. which is a message? I think people saying stop trying so hard. Yeah Yeah I'd I'd rather just say something real here people here too funny people talk. Yeah yea up on an on an interesting conversation. And that's I mean that's that's what. Aw I didn't expect to like this as much as I do. But I like it because I'm having conversations with people that I wanNA talk to and the nations I want my and my podcast the goody goody get it we get I thought cast look. I only have forty nine reviews and I want fifty to my podcast the goodies just a similarly to what kind of conversation we're having here it allows you to needle into someone's life and like kind of dig deeper shit. Yeah it also to like. It's an excuse like united have been out together been things we knew each other. I wouldn't have this conversation with you because it would feel intrusive rude from you. Sit there and go like. Tell me about your parents. When did you come out again? Too much browser take who. It's on. Fire handle go to close smites burning coat now triplets got. They want money. I don't know which one I love that. We're such hymns that after we establish list that people just want real chats we just in he painted a cartoon. Sorry folks we're our own own worst enemy but that is a ladder back to where we were at with just learning the lesson on stage of like I I kind of stagnated..
"montreal metro" Discussed on GSMC Weird News Podcast
"All right and welcome back to the GMC Weird News podcast right before the break. We were talking about weird Christmas decorations and a lot of weird holiday news. Now let's take a shift another direction. I saw this story and there was no way that I couldn't share it with you. Guys this is probably one of the most ridiculous things that I've seen. It is so weird so this happening Canada in Montreal and this woman Bella Koshien Association. I'm not sure if I pronounce her name Right. Probably not. She was stopped by an officer for not holding the handrail on an escalator. Her now she was at the Montemar Monterey Montreal metro station in Level Quebec and this in two thousand and two this happened in two thousand nine and this officer stopped her because she was going up the escalator and not holding on into the handrail. Now she thinks that this is ridiculous like most of us would and he actually like made sure when he said to go with her to have her hold onto the rail while she went back down. The escalator really strange but she doc completely refused to follow this officer after she had gone back down the escalator saying that she didn't do anything wrong and she was definite on that she was like. I did not do anything wrong. I don't know what happened. And so she was detained because of this and and she was released with a hundred dollar. A Canadian dollars of course Ticket for dishonoring honoring assign because there was a sign at the top that said please hold onto the handrail and so she got a hundred dollar ticket for this for not holding holding on for disobeying the sign and then on top of that hundred dollar ticket that she got she got a three hundred twenty dollar fine for obstructing erupting an inspection worker so basically she got hundred dollar ticket for not obeying assign and then a three eight hundred twenty dollars fine for obstructing this officer now she was. I think that she was kind of in the right for this but she she was acquitted for it all in two thousand twelve reminder that this happened in two thousand nine so she was finally acquitted of it all in two thousand and twelve breath and then after that she decided to sue Montreal's Transit Authority. Not only the Transit Authority. She also sued the city and one of the officers now. I assume the officer was the one that you know stopped her and was like. Hey Ma'am you gotta use the handrail. This isn't right I assume it. It didn't everything that I saw couldn't didn't really definitively police say who it was but it they did said an officer's wife Zoom and she was suing them all for forty five thousand dollars forty five thousand dollars and this was in two thousand twelve right. After she was acquitted in two thousand fifteen the a lawsuit was rejected and then in two thousand seventeen it was rejected again. But okay hold onto your seats. There's the but the Supreme Court disagreed and said that the sign is a warning and not a law so basically they were. They rejected it the first time in twenty fifteen was like this is baseless. I don't know what you're talking about. And then when she took it back in twenty seventeen I mean they rejected it again being like no. This is baseless this is totally not even worth it but the Supreme Court came to different decision saying thing. No this is the sign a warning. It's not a law. So basically after that happened she ended up being paid twenty thousand dollars in damages which is around. So that's Canadian dollars around like fifteen thousand dollars in us but still. That's a lot of money. She was still granted. Twenty thousand Canadian dollars for this but it didn't have an exact date toys -ssume that it was still in twenty seventeen when this happened but this woman in two thousand nine is stopped because she doesn't I used the handrail. I see so many people in escalators. Not using the handrail and most of them do have a sign that say it but it's not really like right near face it's like hey hold the handrail. But that was in two thousand nine and then finally in two thousand and twelve. She's acquitted for all of it so she's done and over with bit but she's mad. She is so upset. She is upset that you know all of this happened and she had to go through all of this just to be acquitted and she still wanted something for problems. Forty five thousand dollars. Though is a lot and to sue the transit authority the city and an officer for all that like. That's insane. That is a lot like. I don't even know what to say about that. But she did win and I think honestly she's in the right and to the end she was like no no hundred percent no they are wrong. I M right this is. This is the stupidest thing I could have been. Detained for. She was arrested for not holding a handrail. Like that's something that you don't see anywhere like you seed leads stupid arrests here and there but not holding handrail. That's insane and she still gets twenty thousand thousand dollars for it which I mean. Good on her. But that's crazy and I honestly gonNA feel a little bad for the for the officer circuses. Just doing his job and but I do think that you know they should let them know. This is a sign you should like. Hey you know for your own safety and and everyone else has safety. You should hold the handrail because you're going up and down. This escalator show kids with. This is a good thing but I mean and you don't need to detain people for it. And yes she didn't act the best. Buy Say the totally not wanting to follow the officer and saying saying hey you know. I refused to follow you because of this and that and there was no reason to get into some sort of unnecessary altercation over it which did give her heard the larger fine which I mean. The three hundred twenty dollar fine was still for a drug obstruction on an inspection worker. So I mean she could totally avoided that if she just would've gone with the guy and dealt with it she. She could avoid a lot of this by just doing that but I doubt that she would have gotten twenty thousand Canadian dollars out of it if you did. I don't know it probably one of the weirdest things that I've heard of and I really wanted to share it because I've I've never seen something like this. I mean I've seen weird lawsuit here and there but the fact that she was arrested over something that you see people doing thing every day when you go to an escalator which. I don't know how often you go but when you do see an escalator. Ninety five percent of the people on the escalator are not holding the real. Most people. Don't even WanNa hold the rail because they think there's way too many germs which I mean there's germs everywhere and those rails are Kinda gross and sometimes can leave. Leave your hands feeling old grow so I get it but I mean. I don't see the reason for her. Being arrested paid. And it's just so strange to see somebody be arrested for something you would have never thought you could get arrested for like it is probably one of the weirdest things I've heard of. Could you imagine just being being being this poor woman. Poor Bella and she is at you know. You're just trying to get on the metro you you're in in your purse on your phone. Assume most people at least nowadays would be on their phone on the thing and some police officers like. Hey didn't hold the rail. You'RE GONNA they have some serious issues like it's just something that you wouldn't think would happen. It's one of those little things that you're like. Yeah no that's not a thing. Yeah they tell me to hold it. But I don't have to you and it turns out you don't according to their Supreme Court you don't have to hold it. It's just a warning. It's just a caution. Hey hold the rail so so I I what do you think this is. Probably one of the strangest things I've heard of. And the fact that you want is still incredible but also it all could have been avoided like. I don't even know where to start with this so instead of starting I'll take an end. Let's take a little break and we'll be right back after the break and we'll talk about some more weird stuff maybe about a lady who made her house Abar. I don't know you have to stick around and find Hi It's Jamie progressive's number one number. Two employee leave a message at the. Hey Jamie it's me Jamie. This is your daily Pep Talk. I know it's been rough going ever since.
