Montreal's Flagship Apple Store to Close Temporarily
"Mac Daily News sites report from Canada's CTV. That says Montreal's flagship Apple Store is reclosing. Thanks to corona virus according to the peace and apple customer in Montreal dropped off her macbook last Thursday for repairs she was told she'd be able to get it back repaired somewhere between twenty four hours and ten days later. The next day though the store contacted her saying, pick it up by five PM Friday or go without it for who knows how long. I'm guessing she contacted C. T. V. because they contacted apple. While, the company would not say whether there were covert nineteen cases tied to the store. It did say the current covid nineteen conditions and some of the communities we serve we are temporarily closing stores in these areas. Apple continued. Saying words, it must have memorized by now we take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible.
Fresh air and fear of mass transit puts bicycles back on Mumbai streets
"GonNa, start with Mumbai Bicycle Counselors Why are they getting on the bikes? Like most cities around the World Mumbai has started rolling out pop bike lanes to accommodate I mean I've I've seen a huge increase in the number of black as people sort of shook public transport during the pandemic but the city is taking it one step further than pop up bike lanes are going. Install in positions of influence in city, Council counselors for its twenty four wards who are going to advocate for cycling, which is really exciting. So they're gonNA essentially, they're going to be Negotiating with stakeholders like local businesses are the civic authorities, NGO schools and colleges. To help the rollout of black lines and black infrastructure in the CD and looking helping to set up Docs for for bikes for for people to pick him up from train stations, and even setting up training zones in parts of the city for people that aren't perhaps confident on their bikes to learn. But a bit of a backlash Montrose in some places over the provision ice lanes. Maybe, this is the city that actually could have used simple counselors because because to me, it seems like there's been a little bit of a breakdown in communication in Montreal or at least certainly in terms of engagement with with the local communities. Said, they're rolling out temporary black lanes as many cities are but. A stretch in in Montreal on a believe it's it's not street Notre Dame street West outside a few venerable restaurants and establishments. Has received some backlash from from the restaurant owners there, and actually we didn't twenty four hours the city at roll back their plans to the temporary Klein and sorry it had been installed removed temporary black line and I think for me here. The thing that's interesting about this story is clearly there wasn't enough consultation and and perhaps perhaps the solution. That I propose wasn't necessarily suitable for that part of the city which clearly is relying on people unfortunately, not unfortunately, the reality is that lots of people in the city still need to be able to drive their cars and drive to these restaurants and and perhaps a better solution that balanced bike lanes with car parking motive might have served the solution that.

Wait to see what is a. it's income in much Short out. Okay, those it's like a a the grades to study in College. Just making sure films, soundtrack, Avian, doing fully art right right right?

Yeah Yeah, yeah I mean I guess we're sort of sliding into talking about this but I as we get older, too. It's funny. How like Work Habits Change? I think about for myself. I was the same way. I'd stay up all night working on something especially if you had a group of friends, the time just evaporates these these days. I can't I don't know. Are you still like that I can't operate like that anymore. I think. I was mostly like that during. During College for the most part, I can remember clearly that. I guess. Yeah I like because I'm thirty two now. I would say between. Seventeen and twenty three four, where was like co-co-co-couple will stop, and then the idea of trying to be sustainable over time came to mind, and then I started to what made the most sense in what was more effective to prioritize. To get pretty much similar results subjectively I guess. Yeah. Yeah, well. That's another funny thing, too is that we modify all these things about our set? Our lives our routines our creative process, but it's all in the service of trying to get the same thing read it. Is there his fascinating? Avoid explore that more than I've actually made music in a way. Yeah for the most part I just SORTA. I, just question things more about my place in all of this. Try Try to see more beyond music as more of a what is to what it is to be a general creative in wanting to approach everything in life from of very creative perspective of not not in wanting to create something new, but just keeping things playful for your life than keeping keeping the wonder going in and making your life the are. Yes living it, yeah! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. There's some famous quote I can't remember who said it now about yet. Make Your Life Your Art Yeah, it's like some jazz, said that. Yeah I think you're right. They don't. Know about blues is if you. Just man I'm GonNa. Miss it up, but mean quotes. I think we're just saying we sorted butcher. Percent, I'm like me to say. Right there yeah. Are you. Are you in Montreal right now? Born you've always been there, always stay I'll go I'll travel. Go work over with tour I'm in the middle same amount of time for me to fly to London as it is to go to Los Angeles. Size sort of like this middle ground in cost of living's very low, so it keeps my art very high. Yeah well, that's point to right. Is actually you know this is another part of getting older as a creative is? E start thinking about how much rent is. A was there ever thought you know at any point in your career of leaving I'm surp- people worried your year telling you all? You gotTA come to La a bottle time. Yeah, people were asking media come through but Never had the feeling. I've maybe if I were to think about it more, it would have to be. Set, for very specific amount of time, but it would have to be. Extraordinary kind of project where you know if I have to go to a certain location to to build a show, or something like that something really far out of lecture. Okay I'll go there for four months. We'll do some running and see where we could build. To just stop that on, but if it's just to connect, can do some studio time and more of the more traditional route of the music industry. I sorta I could do that in and out from. It's not an for
Draft Lottery Special
"Deciding when and how we go to see these prospects, you know rob just out of remote curiosity and a lot of reaction to the way the draft unfolded, and how the number one team is GonNa go. Do you have any problem with it like you know you've seen everything in your career? Do you have a problem at all here? No I mean again. That's the way it's GonNa. Unfold, so you'll let it happen and. You know we were discussing in the back. Is this what they want? Ed Is this the worst case scenario? Best Listen it. It adds so much more drama. You can see a whole nother phase and another group of teams coming in there, so we understood that process. It was interesting. Because since the pause, there were so many different scenarios. Let alone. Playing or the playoff structure there was also talk about how the draft lottery how the drought in, so you play all these different scenarios, but finally come up with one and you know this is the outcome. This can happen, so you're little more prepared for it. I'm curious about the The La Market for a for a young prospect. How much to take into account mean just you know Elliott Ni- work out of Toronto, and it takes a very as you all know rob, a unique type of player to be old to survive and thrive in that in that environment. What does it take to survive and thrive in Los Angeles players successful there. It is different. It's different because the everyday drive outside the arena per. Se isn't there not not like. It is in Toronto, Montreal or Whatever you know, eastern type team there, so learn a lot when Dean was here about. A of culture type of important so that when you walk through the dressing room or walk into that room every day? It's Zach same field. That would be in an eastern city. That's had the. The the the hockey bread into him from day one so that's kind of way that we've read that we. We have different obstacles because of the outside. Pressures on different days and getting away in things, players tend to really like to be able to step outside the dressing room and get away from things for day or two, but we have to create A. Culture inside there, so that the next minute they walk back in that room for practice or not that pressure and all that intimidation, a plane is built in there again, so it's a little unique but I've been here long enough and I think I've been fortunate that I've not only experience in the GM jam, or whatever, but as a player to so I've seen the whole thing, and then I
Learning A Love Of Language With Steve Kaufmann
"Hello, travel nerds, and welcome to the extra pack of peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less I'm your host, Travis Jerry joining me today as someone who's a retired diplomat who has fifty years of travel under his belt, and who speaks twenty languages Steve. Kauffman from link. Dot Com Steve Thanks for joining me and a huge welcome. To be here and we're just talking about this right before you hit record. It's easy to be blown away by this number. Right like twenty languages. People like Whoa that's insane, but that was not always the case for you. Let let's back it up a bit and kind of tell us what your language learning journey has been like. Okay well I grew up Montreal, but in the English speaking part of Montreal because in those days the two communities were kind of separate, which is not the case today, but it was in those days more than fifty years ago. And then I got interested in French. We'd had it in school I couldn't speak, but I got very interested. Interested in the culture in those days was Lat Nouvelle vague in all the movies, and so I ended up getting keen on franchise I hitch. Actually I worked on a boat to get across. Europe I ended up settling into France by studied for three years, and that Kinda got me into a situation where I transferred myself into someone fluent in. In another language, which is a a life changing experience so then when I joined the Canadian diplomatic service and they wanted someone to learn. Chinese I said I'm your man. I was confident that I could learn so then. I was sent to Hong Kong in man. Then and then I ended up going to Japan where I live for nine years. And then once you know you can do something fun to do it. And then I just did it. It with other languages as well and and particularly as as sixty eight. I had nine languages when I retired, and now I've learned another eleven since the age of sixty. Wow, so it was just something for you that you again. You didn't have any special skills as in a kid or a teenager right? Didn't it didn't speak French even at that point and it just you kind of the bug a little bit. What have you felt as far? Far, as you said once, you know, you can do it. You and you like it. You just start doing it. Have you felt that it becomes easier the more that you know? Is there like a bit of a tipping point? Maybe where it becomes harder, it becomes easier always easier and I think I had. It's possible that my situation was favourable. Because I was actually born in Sweden, and at the age of five. My family moved to Canada. I quickly forgot Swedish, but that was there in my brain when I was very young, and of course you, can you hear French around? Montreal and I think that the more flexible. Your brain is different sounds different ways of saying things those are those are. Positive but I was at this polyglot conference. Speakers of many languages probably Glide Conference in Montreal, and I was speaking to a group of six hundred people, and I said how many of you grew up in a lingual family, and hardly anybody put their hand up, so it's not a condition but anything that makes your brain more flexible if you only have one language, your brain is set up to deal with one set of sounds. One set of sort of ways of saying things, and as you find that there are other ways other sounds, your brain becomes more flexible, and so you're resist the new language less and less so I learn languages today at the age seventy four faster than I did when I
The Big Easy (with Father Brad Doyle)
"I'm so excited for this because I. Admittedly have never been to New Orleans. Although many Louisianans. Oh, Lord, what's the Deborah and we're going to get into that I got. Using Indians Louisianans have told me like. Oh, you gotta get down there and have some shrimp to fe. experienced the joy of New Orleans, so. Yeah, yeah, I just allow me to bathe in the knowledge of the south. I was you in crab? Boil right now. Sounds a little painful. Be Baptized and Gumbo. Is that service you provide in your church Father Brad. I cook. I Cook like the other day. I went over in at a social distance, sat and and prisoners, driveway and boiled to Sachse, crawfish and like just gave it to him and sat at. It's socially distant. Right off, but so I I do do that, but they usually eat it. They don't pour it on their head or it on themselves. I mean that's the waste, so that's understandable. Who Hey please. The floor is yours Sir Nice okay, so we're gonNA start with pronunciation. Very while the city derives its name from the city of early-on, France. It's not pronounced that way or else people think you are conceded. I'm in New Orleans. So, it's some other mistaken. Situations are new, Orleans or even worse knowledge wins okay. That's very touristy. Okay, One's going around. Saying Nolan's in New Orleans like when we kept referring to Chicago is Chinatown. From What he says, so the best way to say New Orleans is just a smash two words together and just say New Orleans. Let's try like Toronto. Toronto Yeah Yeah. New Orleans okay, and if you live in new, Orleans you're a newer Linian. Okay important, okay, so history! I think it's historically interesting because it's. It's kind of very different from a lot of the country, our country. As is the case with most of the Americas the human history of South Louisiana begins with native Americans right. There were there. And the major tribes inhabiting the area, or the president. Of President of the Chitter Maka and the choctaw tribes, and what's cool is the chicken Maka are the only native tribe of Louisiana. He's still inhabit part of their ancestral land, so we still have people who are a part of the tribe that still inhabit where their ancestors lift our. And many of the rivers streets still bear their the language of the choctaw. For instance there's a street called Chop Tulips, which is just really hard to pronounce even harder to spell. But it is right there on the river, and a lot of stuff is on top of tulips now it's. Exploding section of the city and that's actually a choctaw word. It's not French anish or Haitian or anything. okay. New Orleans. As we know it now is the result of a French colony. Probably know that is founded in seventeen eighteen by Montreal Frenchman and this is you know. French people have these long names a John. Baptiste Lemond be in Ville. But we just call him. Be in Ville feels like a the founder of New Orleans. Chose New Orleans because of the high elevation like where it's at. It's actually has a natural levee where it's located like the French quarter now is where the original spotless, and it didn't flood during Katrina so the French quarter didn't flood. who was all the surrounding areas that flooded? Okay so the land itself is a natural. Levian protected it from the floodwaters exactly. Of Us. WHO. Are probably thinking well. It's at the mouth of the Mississippi right like exactly. something. It's it's not exactly right there. Most of the city. We'll get to that the geography of it. Or geology of it, but it's that section. He chose wisely I mean he chose it for a reason right, so it's a little higher than all the other areas, but it's near strategic waterways. Help it with its. It was considered a port at the beginning I. It's still is, but it was. It was supposed to be the gateway to. Louisiana territory. Okay, so in seventeen twenty two. It was made the capital of French Louisiana though it struggled at first we think of new. Orleans a super touristy, like a great place to go experience, culture and music, but that wasn't the case at the beginning. It was on the outskirts. It was very rustic There's a one of my favorite quotes from missionary priest. Who is there in seventeen twenty one? And this is his quote about New Orleans. He says it's a place of one hundred wretched hovels in malaria, sweat, thicket of willows and Dwarf Palmettos, infested by serpents and alligators. That sounds disgusting. Florida. Things are. A minus the malaria pretty much pretty much accurate even. Mosquitoes. So yeah, that was it wasn't. It wasn't always the tourist destination so and it was French colony until seventeen, sixty three, when very confusing land trades from treaties from the French and Indian war, which not going to explain it I don't quite frankly because I don't understand but that resulted in Spain so seventeen, sixty three Spain, the kingdom of Spain like the monarchy took over. and. They got the territory west of the Mississippi, so Spain got all the territory in the Louisiana territory west of the Mississippi. Plus, New Orleans in Britain got east of the Mississippi minus northern New Orleans this little bitty section. That Spain was like now we want that. which is kind of important because Britain? Never controlled New Orleans. They never controlled it, which is kind of like a point of pride for us. I mean with the French and British kind of beef, but but also because later, and we'll get to the battle in Orleans. We. We fought back the British. In the battle of eighteen twelve at the battle, yeah, that way you can twelve okay, so all in all New Orleans has been under the control of the following. People's the Chitty Maka the monarchy of France. The monarchy of Spain. And then it went back to the Republika France this is post, French Revolution Right Oh early eighteen hundreds and then. U. S. A.. And in eighteen O, three right with the signing the Louisiana purchase the first major event in US new, Orleans, history was in eighteen, fifteen at the end of the war of eighteen twelve, so US forces the militias of New Orleans so just regular new Orleanians like picking up arms, and even a pirate, so there's a famous pirate named John Lafitte. Have you ever heard of John Lafitte Yes, and the BARATARIA. There were basically I mean we were taking every body. And just throwing them at the British we're like we are not letting them. Take the French quarter. Okay, and so they they set up in this place called Shell met, which is really really marshy it's south of New Orleans. and. We fought them back in and actually they were led by Andrew Jackson so old hickory himself.

Will COVID-19 bring down Airbnb?
"Ever since we launched this show almost two years ago. Now we've done episodes about the housing crisis in Canada comes up often and it comes up everywhere from Pi to Nana avert to big cities like Vancouver and Toronto and Montreal. And every time we cover it we start with. Why how did this situation come to be and there are of course some different reasons in different places but one thing one thing keeps coming up again and again and you get one? Guess as to what we'll city place here in the downtown core as one of the highest concentrations of airbnb rental units in Toronto and tonight some housing advocates are saying. That is booming. Business is driving up the prices for those who are actually looking for a permanent home. That was then though and this is now on a city known for its sky high pricing when it comes to housing and rentals is seeing a bit of a shift. According to experts since the Ontario government has banned airbnb there was actually a huge influx in rental apartments being available right now. Nobody is traveling not even within Canada. And as you might imagine that has had an impact on airbnb business model and Bhai impact. I mean it has basically obliterated so what happens to the rental markets Canada's biggest cities to thousands of airbnb landlords some of whom have staked their financial future on this platform to the company itself. Does it di- Does it? Evolve and what happens to the future of development in big urban centers because in order to understand? How much could change from here? You also have to understand how much AIRBNB has done to drive the direction of cities in the past decade. So that's where we'll start. Who knows where we'LL END UP Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story. Matt Elliott is a columnist who writes about municipal policy. He writes in the Toronto Star. He writes for the CBC and several other publications. I mad. Hey we're gonNA talk about Airbnb today and It's decline. I guess in Toronto and in other cities around the world. But why don't you I kind of give me an explanation? As to how AIRBNB rose to such dominance in the rental markets of big cities. I mean the short answer is money. I mean. Imagine you're a landlord and you sort of have choices with the property. You Own the traditional way where you find. A long-term tenant You know you can make some money off of that. But there's some what landlords might describe as hurdles. You know the rules around addictions raising rent or whatever Whereas AIRBNB is way simpler. A bad tenants don't really last for longer than few days in most cases and then the money. I think the money is just the big thing I mean. Imagine you could rent a place for two hundred dollars a night for fifty nights a month. You're at three thousand dollars a month in income from that. That's more than the average rent in most Indian neighborhoods and Enough to carry a mortgage worth a million dollars or so so landlords are looking those two options they were increasingly going the RBM Dui. Because I know you cover Toronto. We'll just sort of use it as a proxy for some of the biggest Global cities which have some of the same problems with AIRBNB. Can you give me a sense of the size of AIRBNB IN TORONTO? Before the pandemic began like how dominant is it was it was very dominant and increasingly so a fair. Bnb which is an anti airbnb at secret supporting a note that but they did some number crunching and looked at the data from AIRBNB and they estimated there were about seventy three hundred Units on BNB that did not comply with the regulations passed by the city of Toronto. Those regulations are not enforced when they were doing this. But those were the rules. Saying you know you can't rent out an entire house that you don't live in you can only rent out your principal residence. So seventy three hundred units that would have been on the rental market but been consumed by AIRBNB. is hugely significant in rental market as tight as Toronto or vacancy rates over. The last few years have been around one percent so you know I think one of the reasons people got pretty fired up about AIRBNB. Is this idea that you know these are. This is a rental market. That is very very challenging. Very expensive very tight and airbnb comes along and suddenly another chunk of air. Rental market is no longer in the market. And we're going to get to the pandemic I promise in in one second but How much in the hallways at City Hall was this hot button issue in the months leading up to say February or early March? When things started happening I mean housing. In general is such a huge huge issue at City Hall There's increasingly concerns that you know we're looking at a city that is just unaffordable for anybody but the top of the economy. So if you're a service worker if you're a teacher you're a nurse if you're a police officer like all of these jobs some of which pay pretty darn well when you look at what housing was renting for in Toronto. It just wasn't really doable for a lot of these people especially if they're people that are looking at you know. I want to start a family. Have a couple of kids and the only one of the people in a couple goes to work in those situations. Those that arrangement used to be doable. In a city like Toronto increasingly. It was not so when you have that sort of greater backdrop of housing counselors and bureaucrats and policymakers and advocates are looking for levers. They can pull. That might improve the situation. How many looked at AIRBNB and said okay? This is a relatively new thing. It has taken units out of the rental market This is something that we can look at it as a way. You know for whatever difference. That'll make it would make some difference to to make things better. As far as housing goes but you mentioned that they weren't yet enforcing the regulations they were not and I mean that's that's an interesting story by itself because the regulations passed by council which I mean at a high level. The major changes that they wanted to impose. Were you know you can only rent out your principal residence so if you have a condo and you want rent it for a couple of weeks on AIRBNB in the summer while you're off on vacation or whatever that's totally fine but if you buy another condo with the plan to just rent it on airbnb making income off of it that was going to become a against the rules. There was also going to be a cap on the number of nights you could rent a a unit in Toronto. One hundred and eighty nine year was going to the CAP But when they passed those Suddenly there was a challenge by a landlord turned out. Airbnb was supporting this challenge. And while that was before the a tribunal they held things up for a two years pretty much but a year and a half to two years while they waited for a ruling on whether these regulations could actually go into effect that finally resolve itself in the fall. But then all of the sudden you have this pandemic happen and you know the has stuff stuff as ended up on pause result. What'S HAPPENED TO AIRBNB IN TORONTO? And other places since the pandemic began it all kind of blew up To be honest I'm AIRBNB. The renters are primarily travelers Whether international or domestic travellers they're people come in from one place to another and in mid March Traveling shutdown just is not happening so there goes the market for airbnb in most cities So all the sudden you have a situation where you have all the supply thousands of units that were on Airbnb and that's how landlords made their income Suddenly were empty a bookings being cancelled and going forward. There's not a lot of hope for our travel to resume in the near term so it was a major shock to the system as all these units suddenly no longer had people in them at all. How bad could this get for the company if it continues? And what have they sort of gun in an attempt to respond to they've done a few things Airbnb announced a fund support landlords. Who were facing cancellations? You know for bookings that came in before the Pandemic Aso I think there is a desire on airbnb. Parts to see this Just sorta sustain the urban economy. Obviously they want to make sure there's still people with airbnb listings after all. This happens That airbnb itself is facing major. Financial Distress They have laid off. I think a quarter of their workforce They are saying they are revenue for the year is about half what it was projected to be at the start of the year. So they're facing a multi billion dollar. Hit and resorting to layoffs. And it's a really tough situation for for the company and then for landlords. I think some of them are going to be able to whether this because they're looking at the situation where they know they bought a unit listed on Airbnb they can defer either mortgage right now at a lot of banks. So maybe there's a way that they can hold on and and keep going through this but you also have situations where landlords have hugely over leveraged themselves. You know really gambled on this as a way to make a quick buck. And you know they're looking at situations where okay. This was going to be my My Nest Egg is is how was going to get rich and that is is really starting to fall apart for a lot of them. When I wrote about this for the star a few weeks ago I got a lot of emails from Landlords with immunes who were just incredibly angry about what I had written Because I was not coming down on the side of the landlords talking about you know how much of their life savings tied up in this Airbnb Model and this their despair for what's going to happen in the future. Can you give me an example of what that looks like when you get severely over leveraged investing in Airbnb Imagine a situation where you come into Toronto and you buy a house for yourself for you know everything in Toronto as close to a million dollars these days. So so you buy a million dollar hosts to live in and then you think well you know to make some extra money. I will also by Condo for a half million dollars and
What we do (and dont) know about COVID-19 and kids
"Kelli grant is a national health reporter for the Globe and Mail. Hello Kelly hello. Why don't we start this conversation by you? Just telling me about Dr Kate Zinser. Who is she and why does she have such a personal stake in the story? Were talking about today. So doctors sensors epidemiologist. She's at the University of Montreal and she's one of the CO leaders of a study that they're trying to get off ground in Quebec that they hope will tell them a bit more about how often kids actually transmit the corona virus. Now as you said she does have a really personal connection here and that is that I think. She sort of exemplifies the really hard decision that some families are having to make. Because we don't really understand this question about transmission. Her husband has stage four cancer. He's undergoing chemotherapy which makes him sort of the classic immuno-compromised person and she has two kids in the older of those two. Charlie who is six hasn't been called. Apraxia is a motor disorder. It's neurological disorder that affects his speech. And he was really thriving and kindergarten and really doing very well and now of course like everyone. They've had to take him out and because she's in Montreal which is looking at reopening schools on May twenty fifth. She and her family have this choice to make you know. How important is it to have Charlie in school versus? How important is it to protect his father from the possibility of the Krona virus? And if we better understood how likely charlier kids like him were to transmit the virus. That might have an effect on her personal decision. So how do you go about finding that out because I know you know even personally when we talk about sending my daughter back to daycare or other families that we know that's the first thing we wonder about him. We have never seen anything. That really conclusively told us while. That's because nobody really knows. So what doctors in her colleagues at news of Montreal Lavelle? How entered a public health authorities at the provincial and local level in Quebec are trying to do is sort of follow a large group of children at what they would consider sentinel schools and they would try to do testing these children and try to get a sense of how often they actually transmit the virus now? This particular study is still very much in the planning phase and right off the Bat. One of the difficulties. They are running up against his figuring out. What's the testing technology that you can use to follow these children Because as everybody knows there's issues around testing capacity and also some of the kinds of testing that you might WanNa do Can be a bit tough on children like these very diesel spots to. What they're looking at doing is collecting samples of saliva or what are called dried blood spots. Which is where you know you prick your finger and put it on a piece of paper and that know testing can be done through those dried blood spots. But they're actually looking at trying to perhaps collect the samples before some of the technology is perfectly in place so that question of of how they collect and analyze the samples is is a big one for them to start. But of course there still will be the kind of regular Pcr which is a test for the active infection that will still be going on at the same time with any of the children there following are tested through regular means they can follow them and then see these kids take this home and give it to their families. Do they spread it to other children today? Spread it to teachers so they want to follow this cigarette out so we might not have seen anything conclusively But I've definitely seen various conflicting reports. Can you kind of explain a little bit about what we may be? Think we might know about kids role in spreading this. I like how you said. Maybe we might know because that actually sums it up really nicely so there have been some smaller studies done. That seems to suggest not. The children. Don't transmit it. We clearly know that they do some have. It's happened sure. But perhaps they don't play as big a role in community spread as older folks as adults do. And so that comes from a couple of different places. There's been some data out of Iceland's and data out of the Netherlands A pretty interesting study at of Australia. And some looks at helps hold clusters. And what all of these kind of small studies all of which have various weaknesses or various. Caveats what they seem to have come to the conclusion of is it seems like they may spread a little bit less than adults. And there's a couple of different sort of theories about why that may be one of them. Is that children. Do seem for the most part to be more mildly affected by Cova nineteen so some of the thinking is just like even though there is a symptomatic priests and dramatic spread. Going on that you're perhaps less likely to spread it to as many people if you're not you know coughing wildly or sneezing wildly right but of course you know the these. These studies are all imperfect. This stuff is hard to figure out and one of the things right off the bat. Is You know a lot of these. Studies have taken place in an environment. Where school wasn't running as normal. The Australian study I mentioned. Some of the data gathering happened schools. Were technically still open. But after the premium Australian state had encouraged people to keep their kids home. So you know. We're going to get a good answer to this. Only after schools are up and running in a sort of widespread way.
A very Canadian solution to a problem well hopefully never face
"At the heart of today's topic is a problem. That Canada will hopefully never face when you just have to look around the world to see how devastating it can be when it does happen in a muddy field outside on an army of bulldozers is breaking ground racing to build up thousand bed hospital to treat victims of the corona virus the Congo. This French train is far from the usual bags and suitcases. This high speed service has been requisitioned for medical use the makeshift hospital and the javits center now is taking patients and there is another field hospital going up this in central park. If covert nineteen spikes again and overwhelms our healthcare system. Canadian officials will have to act quickly. They will need to create a task force and develop a plan to handle the overflow. Who will put that plan together? How fast can they do it? Where will the building go? Where will the beds go where we'll the nurses dress? How does a field hospital come together while sitting on some of their desks will be a very Canadian document to help them? Figure that out because it turns out that almost every place in Canada from our biggest cities to our smallest towns as a facility that is ready and waiting to be turned into a makeshift hospital. I mean you can probably guess what that is. But I don't want to spoil the surprise. The story of how this plan came together and exactly what would need to be done to execute while. That's also very Canadian. And so right. After Claire gives us an update on cove nineteen in Canada. Today I am pleased to present a very good news story. Both because of the fact that this document exists and because so far at least it looks like it won't be needed so clear. How are we doing? Canada marked a grim milestone on Monday. Topping five thousand deaths from Kovic nineteen and most of those more than three thousand are in Quebec despite this schools in Quebec outside of the Montreal area have reopened with restrictions in place schools in Montreal are set to reopen may twenty fifth in British Columbia Phase. Two of the reopening plan will start next week if the cove nineteen situation. There remains as steady as it's been so phase two means. Some businesses will be allowed to reopen with some restrictions in place and people will be allowed to gather in groups of up to six people after the Victoria Day long weekend. Bbc's provincial health officer. Dr Bonnie Henry cautioned everyone to be patient and calm in the coming weeks. Ontario saw another day of decline in cases of covert nineteen on Monday and the province's chief medical officer of health. Dr David Williams said the province is anticipating whether or not it can begin the next phase of recovery. Despite this terrier state of emergency is expected to be extended today until June second as of Monday evening sixty nine thousand nine hundred and eighty-one cases of covert nineteen in Canada with five thousand one hundred deaths. I'm Jordan he's Rawlings. Is the big story. Kennedy Smith is the managing principal of an engineering firm called integral group and He started down a long process that led to an interesting Potentially Very Canadian solution to a problem. Kenny hi I'm doing all right thanks My first question for you is just. How did the group that began? This process come together. And what was its original intention in a weekend to work from home or a couple of weeks and I was. I was sat home one night and I just start thinking by you know. How can we respond as a design construction operations community to help what's going on in the world and and more locally within our community My wife is a is a narcis sick kids. So I also start getting a bit of fear around if if additional facilities or temperatures were needed in if they're if they're put up too quickly or a certain way it may actually create another area of risk for people working within them. So I just started thinking about you know. How can we respond for the right reasons as a community? And I reached I. I'd just can reach site to some some people in Lincoln and made an open call just to whoever was interested. Whoever was willing to put forward their own personal time adds to help right across our industry. So everything from architecture engineering fabrication construction operation. Everything just kind of put it out there. And the response was fantastic. And a lot of people responded. I think I think people were kind of looking for an opportunity to help in any way they could. And and this gave them this this platform to do it So a lot of people responded and we just kind of kicked it off and started from there really moving beyond that we we started speaking to some people on the on the user side trying to understand the actual needs of healthcare professionals the hospitals. And I'm the timelines 'cause you know we're we're used to designing and constructing sewer lengthy timeline. So you know right off the right out of the gate. They told us You know these things if their needs Would NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED WITHIN. Can of two three weeks so a create this very very fast rapids requirement. We realized that we essentially had a week to try and pull something together with team. Yeah so then. We kicked off and started going. What was the first step? I guess In that process. And what were you considering as you sort of looked around at what might be available? It was it was quite crazy. I mean I think usually you've got some more time to really reflect and gather ideas across in many different groups in this scenario you've got a lot of people That have amazing ideas but you also have to make decisions very quickly to to try and move things forward so the first step was just kinda committing to a building type and kind of moving forward with a design and construction at a church for that building type. How many different kinds of buildings did you look at? And what was the that you had? So I think initially we. We started thinking on a large scale when you saw what was happening across the rest of the world in the UK in the United States where there were retrofit saying no major convention centers arenas airports we we. I started thinking about that and then after speaking to the healthcare user groups of Front we realized that maybe a more scalable solution would be better based on the on the needs as they came in so something that wasn't necessarily a too large scale Something that was more medium scale that we could actually implement some better measures to control the The clinical functions of space and air movement. Things like that so we first started considering large and then we started thinking what is a good can building type. On that museum scale that could be easily replicated first of all locally but an essentially anywhere in Canada we thought about hotels. There is a really good opportunity with hotels for People who couldn't self isolate People who couldn't get into amp shelters Could you know accommodate the needy and The people that needs to be helped on they could safely self isolate but in terms of a clinical function. It's Kinda hard to and I'm with the constant Clinton and maintaining the conditions in that space. So yeah we landed very quickly on arenas and then very quickly on ice arenas and you know is very Canadian response They are located all over the commune insane over Canada and the buildings themselves. Although there's there's there's variations of them the main components of these buildings don't really differ that much so you have the kind of ice arena where the WASHROOMS are entranceways Asi. Tin Area Zamboni entrances. You know these. These are all things that remain pretty consistent across any facility so if we could create a designer or sponsor runs one it could easily be replicated across any so. I think that's that's how we can have whittled a dining came to that as that building site so I think everybody listening can kind of picture either a professional hockey arena or their own local arena with the same kind of characteristics. When you're starting with that what do you then have to do? In order to convert it into something that can really help patients and also maintain safety like what does that actually look like on the ground. If you were to put this into action I mean I mean the first thing you've got to consider as what are the clinical functions you know what's it going to be used for? What do the healthcare professionals need in that space? And then can hide you separate out the building to maintain separation between kind of clean and clean supplies or supplies. 'em Hygiene tain separation between people and processing people can come in and and and leaving so we very quickly came Syria. A consensus with the team with some amazing healthcare plan ours. About how do we can chop up the space and very kind of basic terms to separate and maintain these functions so it was really using that main ice arena space to to have patients fitted and embeds comfortably? That could be checked on and could be tended to And then some of the exterior spaces could be fitted for the healthcare professionals storage of supplies and and then maintain some of the base building function so still maintaining the washroom areas and the change rooms for healthcare professionals and patients alike and then in the exterior spaces at most of these locations or surrounded by parking There's there's usually space around them so we had opportunities to also include four temporary trailers or additional spaces to store equipment and to put in additional mechanical equipment to maybe have some some temporary areas for doctors nurses to actually get some downtime and to hang out so You know we could kind of add to it like Lego blocks and as as where needed with I really doing too much to the existing infrastructure. Yeah I've taken a look just at one of the little plans you kind of sketched out yet. Looks Amazingly Just like a hockey arena only It's been transformed. Did you game out? How long that would take you and how much it would cost. And how quickly you can set it up. Because I know we've heard things from around the world of you know how quickly China has thrown up field hospitals or quickly. New York has transferred stuff. So what's the timeline in the cost there so I mean the cost is something
Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?
"You can say one thing for the current crisis. It's given us a chance to try a lot of things that we might never have had the will to do otherwise I amongst those just giving people money okay not everyone but millions and millions of people in Canada and not forever but at least for a few months and this isn't a new idea. It's been around in some form or another for decades. You probably know it as universal basic income and you might associate it with the most progressive voices come the liberal side of the spectrum and you may also associate the opposition to it with complaints of lazy people want free cash instead of working but despite having a long history as a potential way to ease poverty and improve health. This has never been tried on a large scale or for a long time. So the people arguing on either side of it have never had enough evidence to prove their point. So it's been a political football until like with so many things. These days along came the virus and now getting money to people who need it quickly is absolutely essential governments around the world even the most conservative of them have done that and those who support or oppose that kind of policy have mostly agreed on the need for it. It's what happens next. And what we learned from that will determine if we finally give a universal basic income. A real shot. So we'll explain history of the policy small tests that we've seen on it be political behind it and whether or not it will stick around when we get out of this current mass. And we'll do that as soon as Claire gives the details on this current mess cargill is dealing with the outbreak at one of its meat processing plants. This one isn't Schambori Quebec southeast of Montreal. Sixty four workers have tested positive. There cargill had another outbreak a few weeks ago at a beef packing plant in high river. Alberta in that outbreak more than nine hundred workers tested positive. It reopened last week after a two-week shutdown also in Quebec schools in the western part of the province are set to reopen today but attendance is optional. Desks will be spaced apart. And there can be no more than fifteen kids in a classroom at a time. Ontario reported the lowest number of cases of Cova nineteen for the province on Sunday since March. Two hundred ninety four new cases. And this comes. The province reopens Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas. Although camping is still not allowed and things like beaches playgrounds and public washrooms are still off limits. And lastly schedule and is suspending the sale of alcohol in the Northern Community of La Lush to help control the spread of cove in nineteen. The alcohol store will be closed for two weeks. To prevent people from gathering. There will be support for those at risk of alcohol withdrawal as of Sunday evening. Sixty eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight cases of covert nineteen in Canada with four thousand nine hundred and seventy deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Max. Faucet is a writer and a reporter for many publications including on this project for the Walrus. Hey Max he joined our. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is how everybody should hopefully answer that question. These days you start by defining What is a universal basic income Broad is that term. And what does it mean? Sure so I mean you know this is an idea that's been around for some time now and and there can be competing definitions and I suspect. We'll get into that in a second but the one that I adhere to the one that you know certainly I informed Andrew Yang's campaign in the United States and that has been informing most of the conversation about UBA. Right now is It has three conditions it's automatic. It's unconditional in its non-withdrawal. So basically that means it comes every month doesn't matter who you are you get it. You could be making a lot of money or a little money and you get it. And then it's non withdraw so It's not means tested. So it doesn't get clawed back you know as you as you make more money you know. There's much conversation on you know econ twitter about various amendments and adjustments to that formula. But I think that's a good way to think about it. Can you give me a little history of it? You mentioned it's been around for a long time Has it been tried for real anywhere where to come from that? Depends on your definition of for real right. I think people look at the idea of giving people money from the government. And they think well this must be a left-wing idea but actually the first real experiments with it happened in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies and it was driven by a Richard Nixon and Milton Friedman. Who is the father of supply-side economics? Yeah they saw it as a way to replace the welfare system and so they their idea of a basic income is not quite the way I just defined it. It was something called a negative income tax. And so let me. Just get a tiny bit. Wonka share the way it worked in their conception is basically they would give people a percentage of the difference between their income and defined income cutoff or like the point where they start paying income taxes so if they set the cutoff at let's say forty thousand dollars and the negative income tax percentage was fifty percent. Someone who made twenty thousand dollars a year would get ten thousand dollars from the government. They made thirty five thousand they would get two thousand and from the government so is this sort of sliding scale where topped you up up until a certain point and then it went away right. They cancelled it in one thousand nine hundred and you know the the the Reagan era kind of buried it under under Nixon's legacy in Canada. Did something called the men come experiment? Which was the Manitoba Basic Income Experiment? That was more that was closer to the basic income that that I described earlier in the one that a lot of people are talking about right now so that says that gave thirteen hundred urban and rural families in Winnipeg and don't Fan Manitoba with incomes below. Thirteen thousand dollars a year back then money. But by the time that the data was collected in nineteen seventy eight so they ran up from seventy five to seventy eight. The Canadian government kind of lost interest in and they cancelled the project. So we've had these these aborted attempts to gather a sample and it hasn't really provided any conclusive evidence In the in the American one. There's some evidence that it that it you know Negatively impacted people's willingness to go to work in the Canadian won the data suggested otherwise. But there just wasn't enough data to conclusively determine the impact of giving people money on their both on their willingness to work and on on the outcomes that the government's wanted to test. Which is you know better. Health Outcomes Better Labor outcomes better social outcomes so you know the jury was still out right. Will what kind of a sample size and study length? Would you even need to determine that because again we had one or at least something like one here in Ontario Under Kathleen Wynne. A few years ago and the next government came to power and it was immediately phased out. So you know. I don't think we got more than two or three years out of that either. So what kind of scale are we talking about? Yeah I mean to make it work. You would needs multiple cities multiple tests populations and a long duration of study. This is this is a a bold policy intervention but you need to be able to control for extenuating circumstances and factors the Ontario project. Was it had some really promising results. As it turned out there was a study group at McMaster that basically interviewed the people that participated in the program. Some of the data they had eighty percent of of people reporting better health outcomes. They were using less tobacco drinking. Less eighty-three percent said they had better mental health. They were feeling less stressed. They had a better diet And there was even interesting. Data around better labor market outcomes people were basically using the minimum income the guaranteed income to improve their jobs to look for better job. So it's disappointing that the government scrapped it after basically what amounted to one year and left us in the same spot that we've sort of always been with these things where we just don't have enough data for either side to conclusively prove that their argument is right and you know maybe not maybe now is the opportunity to kind of walk in that that longer sample size but you know the problem here is that. It's always tempting for governments to to start these programs and then abandon them or different governments to come in and cancel them. You'd need some sort of agreement by all parties that they're going to let this run. Its course and we haven't really seen that yet. So you mentioned that it's seen mostly now at least as a left-wing idea might have begun under Nixon. But certainly I think that's how most listeners would frame it as you know Whether or not you support it About the side of the spectrum that it comes from but as we've started to see government's realizing how badly they need to help people as the economy collapses during this pandemic have seen any movement On the other side of the aisle towards this kind of idea I think we've seen much more movement on on the conservative side than we have on the progressive side the beano progressives are are are very wary of guaranteed income proposals because I think you know quite rightly they remember certainly the academics who studied this. They remember that it was originally an idea that was intended to get rid of welfare and other social supports and that is always a concern that if you bring in a guaranteed income. Is it really just an attempt to shrink? The size of the state is an attempt to get rid of targeted support programs that that make people's lives better and I think that's a totally valid concern when I when I posted my article from the wall or something twitter. I got a lot of feedback from economists about that where they basically said you know. Oh here we go again. People people don't realize that this is a an attempt to slip in through the back door reduction in social programs. That's really interesting. Yeah but you know. Over the last few months we've seen a really array of conservatives. Come out and say that this is a good idea. Hugh Seagull. Who is a former senator standing red? Tory I WOULD. I would describe him as a thought leader. He's been he's been banging the drum for for guaranteed income for quite some time now but he was always sort of out there in the wilderness as a conservative suggesting that this was a good idea and he wasn't one of the ones who was saying that it should replace social programs. He was saying it should be an augmentation to them but in the states over a matter of weeks you saw people like Mitt. Romney coup is basically the Avatar of hedge fund capitalism. Coming out and and suggesting that this was a good idea that would support. Americans during the fallout from Cova and ultimately Donald Trump's government. It's not it's not a permanent basic income. But they sent a check to every American and that is sort of one of the hallmarks of a basic income. So it's interesting the degree to which we've seen conservatives rally behind this particular policy flag. I think that it is driven by shorter. Term political objectives American politicians having election. That they're looking at in November and one of the surest ways to get defeated is to be in being government while people are losing their jobs losing their homes losing their livelihood so I think it's more self preservation than a genuine change of heart but in from a policy perspective. You take the support where you can get it and you build on it from there. So you know I think advocates of a U. UB. I should take their support and and leverage it in order to build their movement if you can may be explained to me the thought behind the benefits of this applying to absolutely everyone including people who have job because that's really And we can debate in Canada versus the US for however long. But that's that's like the primary difference between what trump's government has done and what Canada's done with the baby. Yeah that's the tricky part. That's the part that a lot of people struggle with conceptually and intellectually as is the idea of giving people who don't need money more money right. Yeah and Ken Boston cool. Who is is a former adviser to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark? He's been kind of driving the bus in Canada around the need for a UB. I you know he's he is preferred that to the more targeted approach that the government has taken with Serb. You know his idea in the short term is we just need to get money into people's hands right. Now we need we need to stimulate the economy and ultimately will tax it back next year on people's income taxes that's the thing about a guaranteed income in the context of the system. We have here is if you're making sixty seventy thousand dollars a year. This is going to a portion of this. We'll get taxed back right and so it's not. It's not really free money. It's a little bit of free money and I suspect there would be some social programs that would get pulled back a little bit to to make the numbers work but you know at the end of the day. I don't think you can let the weaknesses in the policy that that might impact a few people. Override the benefits that would impact far more people. You know there's there's all sorts of data out there that suggests that a basic income would actually stimulate economic growth. There's all kinds of data that suggested improves. Health outcomes and Lord knows improving. Health outcomes would save taxpayers and the government a lot of money. Because that's where an increasing increasingly large part of our social budget is going and we'll continue to go in the years and months to come so you know it it is It's a tough idea to get past for some people that I find working already. Why should I get more money from the government but that money's going back into the economy and it stimulating economic growth that supporting jobs? It's reducing healthcare costs. You know I think there's a pretty good case for it and and you know it's one that we should be willing to explore. I am I am more than open to criticism about the cost factor that I suppose we can get to that in a second but I think we also need to look at the benefits and look a little a little bigger in terms of where those benefits accrue it. It's not just lifting people out of poverty. Although that's that's an obvious benefit it's improving people's health outcomes improving their labor market outcomes. Let's people who have a
Calling Tennis Remotely, with Ravi Ubha
"Welcome to new challenges remaining. I'm Ben Rothenberg as millions of folks around the world enter their third month of adjusting to working remotely I thought this might be a good time to share the experiences of what it's like to work remotely in tennis when tennis is a sport that sts professionally which doesn't really currently and much of the world feed commentary on the tennis matches you watch at home is delivered from a world away from the courts where the matches are taking place and one of the Veterans of this craft is. Ravi who also works on site at tournaments as a freelance reporter. So foot both the close the distant kind of work in Tennessee. So Ravi will describe here what. It's like working in broadcasting rotely at lifestyle of being distant from the courts and the challenges of creating atmosphere. A place that you're nowhere near so hopefully you will find this interesting. Maybe a little bit resident in these times of distance working that we're all living in and general distance. This interview was recorded near the end of this year's Australian. Open as you'll be able to tell but hopefully it has some some meaning residents or something in our lives. Today here is Ravi. I'm thrilled to be joined on this episode by my friend Robbie who is aware of many different hats in the tennis world. He is this week at the Australian Open. As we record this on my I'll and the pressroom and I'll made of mine as we walked back and forth press conferences and whatever else and share reactions to whatever missed overheads and such happened at once. He's one of those voices in unison gasping and signing and also a voice that I hear actually on the TV and watching at home as a frequent world feed commentator tennis Ravi. Thank you for being here. Ben My pleasure. Thank you for people who maybe more or less with you. Just how did you get into tennis? I in your life. How did you for make the jump into doing it as a career? In my life I grew up in Canada so It surprises me that I actually got into tennis. Because as you know. It's a big hockey country at my earliest memories at home when I was a little kid. Four or five watching the US Open in the background was on TV. Washington handle who? I think. He's my idol. When it comes to sportsman was younger so it started from that Played my whole life. Love playing very regularly and then got into it You know my profession and when I moved to London I was in the early two thousands. I is really a writer and thereafter going into the booth and doing You know share a picture of of commentating and TV work also. So how'd so the writing we've got a lot of show or other writing side of its. I'm more curious about how you make that. Jump how you go from being on the page. What was your first time being behind a microphone? I remember it well. It was a two thousand nine. I was asked to do a Davis Cup tie between Russia and Russia and Romania And so I did that s skew. Kinda thing. Yeah it was actually victor. S Q in McCall usually my first match. Oh I remember well and I think it was because they were looking for people who who just new tennis and covered tennis and as somebody who grew up broadcasting also. I was reported in Montreal where I grew up doing TV. I think they knew that. And they just stick. Okay let's Let's bring him in on something I wanted to do. So it really started from my point. According I've done a lot of tennis radio. Color Commentary. Saddam that different from doing TV. But I'm curious what as you got more into? Tv having been a writer having been a reporter. What skills are translated into what once? Don't translate what he to learn on that new in this new role well it For example the attention to detail that you have in imprinted writing. I think that's very helpful when it comes to being in the booth you know when digging up statistics knowing where to look and knowing how to get them to look for the inside stuff rather than just the basic statistics. I saw you antennas abstract on your computer just nine. Yeah for sure a great website. That's that's something that I bring with me. On the print side things that are different You know you know went to jump jump in and out to in went to Q. Out I'd also just broadcasting is a different is a different also voice. Really when you're as to when you're talking somebody like as we're chatting but now it's it's a different voice you put on. You also have to learn. Went to kind of hit your spots when it comes to nailing down for example phrases after a particular matches. Done you WanNa with a big extra It's not exactly the lead on when it's so important for peace pace but it's kind of the big finish in broadcasting so that there are little things like that they're different is that. I think you become more accustomed to as you do more shoe and actually imprint. They really don't emphasize most editors or papers or publications don emphasize ending so much. Onto a real sign off they most articles fade out or some editors sort of cut from the bottom which is frustrating when that happens because the idea try to put endings on Surrey generally. Bs that when did. When did it become a more full-time thing for you? And how did sort of adding work in that particular line? Is it same as other freelance work or is it different? Yeah no it's pretty much since the I would say two thousand thirteen fourteen and I I would say it's become more of doing that Rather than writing than before it was kind of opposite. He's been more of the writing than the broadcast. I always say since two thousand and thirteen and fourteen. I've lucky enough to to do a lot and it's something I love doing. I mean I sat on the air sometimes tournaments that you know. It's such an honor privileged to be doing it because as a tennis fan my whole life you know. Don't consider it a job. I'm very lucky doing something I really really love. And that's all really can ask for you. Mentioned sort of how the attention to detail in the writing can help the TV. Tv helped the writing effort to go the other direction too. Well helps in the sense that I get to watch a lot of tennis I believe and so I think I have a pretty good grasp of the players so it helps to foster ideas because you know for example. I'll give you an example I was watching an accommodated a master on the Brazilian player. A couple of years ago Eliane Pereira And I was digging up homework doing research for her master when she was playing at home. And I just read Interesting stuff about her. How she grew up in really extreme poverty you know. She didn't have a bathroom in her house. She had her bathroom in kind of the back garden. And so I thought well that'd be nice idea to do a longer feature a long story on inside that Saranda presumably written for the time. Remember that So it does help I mean and I think Ben as you know the more you homework you do on any subject on any play you realize that every player has a great story or has a story to tell I think that's the lesson that I learned. I try to bring them in the booth especially at times when a match is getting out of hand when it's not it's not as dramatic in oak at six one five two or six one three love. Matt out of Control. I think you want to sprinkle in those nuggets Talk about other stuff rather than you know the rallies techniques stuff.
A guide to COVID-19 scams and how to protect yourself
"So I saw my family over the long weekend in when I say saw. That's all I mean. I hooked a bunch of us up to a teleconference for a little Easter celebration. So yeah I saw them and I guess I heard them to. That's it let sounds Nice. I saw a Lotta that over the weekend. I've been doing zoom calls with my family about once a week. It was my dad's birthday recently and they put the laptop at the dinner table so that I could see them all and it was kind of like I was there. See kind of kind of his good. But this is what. We're supposed to call physical distancing not social distancing because. I guess the point is by video chatting with my family. I am maintaining social connections. Yeah I mean you're still being social. You're just not there physically okay. We'll here's my mini rant about that. It is social distancing. It is literally socializing at a distance and it does feel distant. And I'm bringing this up because there is a bit of a debate around which term is proper and I wanted to quickly use this time to say before we get into the nasty scams and frauds. That are going around now that it doesn't matter what term you use here. They mean the same thing and either way. It sucks so pick your favorite. Yeah definitely You're right about that. I mean we're so fortunate to have this kind of technology right now but it's not the same thing as seeing people in real life. I mean it doesn't matter how many zoom calls you do. You can still feel lonely as soon as you log off and this is where we get into today's topic because guess what it's precisely when we're feeling those things when were scared or were lonely or missing family or even just looking for help and information. It's that time that were most vulnerable to frauds and scam artists. Who are right now looking to profit off of people's misery and fear here in Ontario on this is just one example but this weekend premier Doug Ford vowed to deal with these people as harshly as possible. There's always going to be very very few bad apples disgusting people that WanNa make make a profit off the docks of people that are dying. We ever catch him here in in Ontario Mobile. Come down on them like Like they've never seen before the full extent of the law. But here's the problem with that. It's almost impossible to catch them. And once they've got your money or your information it's almost impossible to get it back. What you can do though is protect yourself. You can know the details of the scams going around. You can know the signs of a fake and you can know how these people will pitch themselves to you and all of that will help so today to kick off week five of self-isolation right after the news. We will give you an extensive guide to keeping yourself and your information safe during all of this but first Claire as another week begins House candidate. Doing Y'all I'm GonNa Start in Quebec today where we know the krona viruses hit hard at police are investigating a long-term care home in the Montreal area. That's where thirty one people have died. Since mid March and nurses have now been speaking of describing unsanitary conditions. They say some residents were completely neglected for over twenty four hours because workers just couldn't handle the conditions and were walking off the job. Quebec's premier is promising a thorough public investigation. We'll province of Manitoba has put out a call to local businesses to make medical masks and this comes after a medical team in Winnipeg came up with a design for a mask that would be just as effective as the end ninety five so they're hoping to find local manufacturers to get on this as soon as possible because the province says. It's about a week or two away from running out of masks and other personal protective equipment well. There was a video making the rounds last week. Showing a man in an elevator in British Columbia spitting on the buttons. That man is now apologizing for what he did. He says it was the result of a momentary fit of anger from an ongoing dispute between him and the Strata Council in the building that he lives in he also says he has no health issues. No Cova nineteenth symptoms and Vancouver. Police say they are not investigating this and lastly Justin. Trudeau is one of many leaders across the country back at work today. After taking a rare day off for Easter Sunday. He did send out a written message though thanking Canadians for staying home especially during the long weekend he said by doing this Canadians or showing the true meaning of loving our neighbors as ourselves as of evening over twenty four thousand cases of Kovic Nineteen in Canada with seven hundred and sixty four deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Sam Cooper is a national investigative journalist with Global News who has looked into just about all of the scams going around. Hello Sam Hi how you doing? I'm doing all right. Where are you right? Now you in a basement An apartment somewhere no. I'm located in Ottawa. Usually I we'd be in a global news studio with a view of Parliament Hill. I'm a little bit further away at home in my home studio today as as we. I think most of us are at this point. Yes well We're all just trying to record from wherever we can But we're GONNA talk about scams today. Yes so how quickly did we start? Seeing Kovic nineteen scams from the day Canada. I had a case will I would track it back even further in my research. I think potentially be original scam as it were was started by China's government unfortunately when This virus started a roll through Wuhan China in November and December. There were some doctors that that we're trying to warn people and they got visits from police in China and said Retract her statements. Or else you'll be in trouble. Chinese state media said any rumor mongers talking about a SARS like virus will face a penalty's and that really created the conditions for a once in a lifetime health crisis to roll out and we started to see more traditional corporate scams appearing worldwide. I would say late January and in February. What did those first ones look like will they? They were very sophisticated and they played on the need. The crucial need for information and also some sort of fear and I think one of the very first engineered widespread scans we saw was sites that mimicked universities like John Johns Hopkins putting out data boards. Where all new corona virus cases were appearing everyone was hungry for that data understandably for these spoofed sites when you clicked on them. It was actually a scheme where the criminals on the other side were fishing for your personal information through your computer and that really sets the table for a a whole world of scams because once criminals have your information any number bad things can happen from there and it can lead to further scams. They're just building up their databases on how to social engineer. As as it's called a scams that work off a good knowledge of who targets are so. Give me an example. Then if you can of of what they would do once. Somebody had clicked on one of those sites and they'd mind some of their data once the criminals have your data. It can go into
The Good, The Bad And The WTF With Alan Yang
"I think this is a good time for us to pivot to our regular segment. Our favorite segment the good the bad in the wgn. Jeff I feel good about that. Let's do that okay. So why don't you lay down the rules of engagement for Ellen? Okay all right. So the rules of engagement for this game We live in a world of rolls right now mostly related to social distance and hygiene but in this particular game. What we what we do with this segment is it's kind of a round table segment where we will ask our guest or guests s is we will join in as well to talk about a single topic three ways so you know one dish served three ways and the three ways are the good of that thing what makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside positive Joyful the ecstatic and then the the bad the negative side the darker side of that thing and then finally the W. t. s. one of the things that still to this day. Make us go right. They don't necessarily need to be either good or bad. It could be either but they still leaves a little puzzled so we thought that it would be appropriate given the amazing work you've been doing in this. I mean won't call the genre but Solitary to do the good the bad dose of telling immigrant stories. And you know we figured that this is something which we want you to share with us on your own so we'll just do that three ways with you beginning with the good if you can you know. There's so many good things about it but if there's if there's something particular that you feel is really just heartwarming about the idea that we're now in a space where we can tell these kinds of stories or even shelvin anecdote of telling immigrant stories that you WANNA share. That was particularly heartwarming. That'd be fantastic. Yeah well the good part is the easy part right. It's like the bad shitting. Immigrants Stores goofing around something but no the good part. The good part is easy. And it's it's it's multi part right one. Which is like were able to do it right now. That's that's the number one. Good thing it's like we were at a zero. These stories weren't being told at all. You know we. We were essentially zero and even in the last five years that's started to change in in you know starting from some of the stuff we did on master like that that you know covered some some some of that ground and then starting to work on. Tiger tail which is about that and then you know obviously little America is a whole show. That's about immigrant stories but Being able to be just being able to have the freedom to tell these very specific stories that that you know just were not in the cultural landscape at all when you talk about this country. It's like it just didn't exist so so that's great. Secondly you know getting to know yourself a little better getting to know your family a little better getting to Appreciate part of yourself that that you may have not been very in touch with because you wanted to fit in because you wanted to assimilate so so becoming more comfortable with who you are when you look in the mirror. That's all been part of this for me. It's been it's been really served edifying an interesting fulfilling And then a third part is and sadly this is probably more relevant than ever is is just kind of. I don't WANNA say educating people but because that sounds like homework but it's like a it's it's showing that these all of these people are three dimensional human beings as basic as that sounds I at the sounds incredibly basic and simple but if you look at the past if you look at the history of Asian American representation on screen is not human three-dimensional it is being depicted as perpetual. Foreigners is being depicted as nerd being depicted as a Guys or a you know atomic towns or sort of robotic and emotionless and you know in a movie like Tiger tail. I wanted to show that we are full of emotions and we are full of internal life and are we are living breathing emotional creatures who change over time and you have regrets and who love movies love and find it hard to talk to our kids in hardtop for parents then overcome that you know all these things of intrinsic in telling a story like that and frankly. I haven't seen it very often depicted if at all and so all these things are kind of why I'm passionate about telling me stories in There's many many more reasons. But that's that's just off the top of my head. I think it's just scratching the surface and I think there are many more stories to be told in many different genres including potentially horror action thriller. You know I gotta say given that. Actually living in a Har- inaction thriller right now There is something really meaningful about humanizing Chinese immigrants and other Asian immigrants in this era. Right you know showing showing Chinese people townies people literally without their masks is so important and bring them to. Life is something which I think has repercussions for actual life. So I'm super glad that even though it wasn't planned that that this is coming out at a time in which it's needed in that fashion. Yeah I mean. Look the totally unexpected circumstance. And it's just it's it's awful. What's going on? But you know the movie is coming out and the movie will be available for people to watch and if it if it's some small comfort and if it's you know depiction that as we said is three dimensional than of Asian people and people with Asian bases like you know I. It can't be a bad thing in my mind right so now we move on to the second round like you said. It's little more difficult. Although I'll tell you you know it doesn't have to be something bad about immigrants stories but it could be something bad about telling them right. And how the challenge of actually doing them right? So what in your impression Allen is the bad Santa tell this isn't this isn't a bad per se but it is a difficult challenge right so so when we were doing little America for instance it was a production challenge. Because you're doing eight stories that take place in eight different countries in eight different parts of the of America. So we're should and we're shooting the majority of them in New Jersey. So you're faking New Jersey for Uganda. Your New Jersey for Singapore. You're you're making new. Jersey are everywhere. So yeah talked to our production designers. Amien Diana about about the challenges of doing stories but that show went some crazy as to not only hurry doing that but then we ended up shooting Montreal for Syria and then I flew to Florida and we shot this episode. That took place on a cruise ship and we fake a Floridian cruise ship going to the Bahamas for Alaska. So at that point. I think we were just making life more difficult for ourselves on purpose because that doesn't have any big immigrant that just makes it much more difficult In the same thing happened in some ways and tiger tail. Because you're shooting in New York and you're shooting in Taiwan and interestingly enough again. This is kind of funny but just the way the days split up. We ended up having to shoot some of Taiwan Four New York in the movie. That take place in your shot in. Taiwan and I like I kind of want people to guess which ones they are. 'cause there's some scenes that they're in your. We shot in Taiwan which is so crazy and we had them put out a casting. Call for extras like we need non-taiwanese extras and all and so we got like white and black people in I wanted to be in the background.

"montreal" Discussed on The Big Story
"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.

"But. But. Let's look at the other reports, so let's take psychology far out of it as we can we know that. Like any other large city in the developed World Montreal has a ton of monitoring devices and systems in play. These things are on every day of the year twenty four hours a day seven days a week. They're supposed to Ping. When they see something now, and they're humans that for most of the time, if not all of the time are checking those systems and looking at and monitoring them. Yeah yes, so SOM experts check into power grits, and they said what about electromagnetic disturbances we know those can do screwy things, because keep in mind that Canada is one of the one of the country's that experience the world's strongest most recent coronal mass ejection right, which in the eighties through the place back into the dark age for a minute. But not for long right. Just unexepectedly shorted out grids, so they found one power failure, but it was. Like it was around. Eleven PM. So is after this thing would have been around because we're talking seven twenty. Seven twenty like ten ten or so. And then they checked operating records of communication networks radio stations redo operators television telephone circuits excuse me during the evening of November, seventh nineteen ninety, and they did not find any unusual amount of malfunction. Whatever this means that whatever it was was not at the very least was not interfering power grids, nor electromagnetic systems were things that could be affected by that well. That's I mean okay. This is a good piece of you. Know Knowledge to have not. It's probably not the electric grid, but another set of monitoring instruments would be radar which would pick up physical objects. Yes, especially in the airspace. That wasn't happening right? There were no UFO's detected or reported to be detected. Any case by airport radar systems the controller. A controller that was interviewed reported that for the twenty years. He's worked in the field at the same control tower. Know ufo's ever been reported according to him in a report a few days later, the phenomenon reported on Wednesday was caused by a light ray. We have another expert saying it's not physical She just light man. It's just a trick of the light. It's only the wind who is not the ghost of your dead lover so only the wind? All right. Let's get almost down to the end here because I want to just talk about one I think it is okay so if you want to see a more modern version of this and you're a fan of Less than stellar television. You can check out a show that the television channel Canal d made in two thousand seven, a reconstruction of this phenomenon in a series of theirs called mystery files the interviewed a lot of the witnesses Mainly? The witnesses who believe it was extraterrestrial. And and different people will note that a lot of the UFO policy websites that are convinced this was extraterrestrial origin will mainly sight this report. You can watch it on, Youtube I I. I don't want to be a jerk about it, but I wouldn't call it groundbreaking science. It's entertainment, so the point of that is to entertain you with a recreation. Creations is the call good old fashioned recre- of some light rays so in this case it appears four now that the most likely explanation for the nine thousand nine hundred Montreal citing was either a mundane, if secret craft of some sort or a strange type of light weather phenomenon caused by interaction with this low foggy, foggy sky again, the big questions are. The number of witnesses let us know. There was definitely something visible there and the fact that it stayed visible for three hours. Is Pretty Fascinating, too. There's a pretty there was an argument for some kind of aspirants behavior of the northern lights, but that doesn't really hold up once you once you dig into it so right was. What do you think? What do you think? A natural phenomena of Sun Rays somehow being bent around at around seven PM. which you know, that's November seven P M I. Don't know exactly when the sun was setting on that day, but there is. There are phenomenon Sun. Light can be bent. Around the planet if you know. At certain times like after a dusk after the sun has set. Where you can get some weird light ray action going on. Right. It almost always has to do with moisture in the sky. These ice crystals were talking about clemmie sense because they would refracted and could split it off in different patterns and make it look like it's moving abnormally right. Yes, in Montreal. Isn't you know right near the equator or anything? It's getting up higher. Or north on in latitude, so you know. That potential is there. When you're talking about where you can actually see some strange things in the ionosphere, above you Montreal is pretty damn close up to those places where it's most strong but again. Oh you know what? When you when you see Aurora borealis spinning all generally what color? NOT THE BEST I. Green is one of the prominent colors the is. Supposed to be blue. Greenish, it's green, okay. I'm sorry. No, no! But the green hue or the coloration, and some of those images that you're seeing high up above in that fog. Could. You know I could see that being Aurora borealis kinds of things, but then if you mix that in with maybe a bit of sunlight, being refracted and kind of bent over like that, you could get those light rays, because it really does look like tiny sons. Like shooting out raise through that cloud cover, yeah, weights. Did you just talk yourself out of what you were originally going okay I did I love watching these transformations real time well?

"If I just haven't seen that kind of technology at play yet. It could be something like that that I just don't have the reference point for. Totally? Yeah, I mean I can completely understand that. We also have We have a couple of different experts who weighed in both in the Montreal area, and then just people, study, astronomy or you have. To so on. One I'd like to bring your attention as Dr Robert La Fontaine. WHO's a professor of astronomy at the University of Montreal? And he had I think he had the most even-handed initial response because again. We have to remember like November seventh eighth through the ninth. People are saying all kinds of just wild out-of-pocket pocket stuff about this. So here's what here's what the astronomy professor says. People saw something they saw ufo now the word ufo is identified flying object, so they saw something in the sky. They couldn't identify they saw. Phenomenon now remains to find an explanation. We haven't had time to find one yet. It takes a while. We need to have observations. We need to collect a whole series of information together so far most of the investigations that are looking at the ufo phenomenon often take several days to find an explanation. For decades that we have been dealing with UFO phenomena, not only in Quebec, but almost everywhere in the world, until now none of these ufo phenomena has found its source in the presence of vessels from other planets all ufo phenomena have their explanation in natural phenomenon of meteorological origin, or Aurora Borealis, type or artificial phenomenon. Sex out very dry way he saying I'm not saying he can't be aliens, but would be the first frigging time ever. Let's also just the term. UFO is so loaded. People have so many associations with it from pop, culture and sci fi and everything, but what it really just means is a lack of an explanation, and just because we're seeing something that doesn't have an explanation doesn't mean you can make the leap to it. As this origins being somewhere, you know of the known universe right? Yeah! I got to see some really weird on personal level. Of. Several days. Maybe it was last week on. It I was digging into something and. Someone quoted me saying that on on read it and who is like the most? I think it was the coolest thing to happen to me that month. well this month. There's a new month never a switched over bent, but yeah, we have to say that right every every time we deal with UFO's we do have to. We do have to emphasize that because you're right. It has a has become a loaded term ever since the nineteen what? Late forties maybe. Yeah that'll roswell well. Hey, let's I. can we go to the next? person that stepped in because this person. Just is so skeptical of anything else like we're. That was maybe even handed that we just heard from sure from the the professor there a mark has next to grind Oh man, mark What is it Gelinas? He's a meteorologist with environment. Canada that's an organization and Secretary of the Montreal Astronomical Society. This dude was not having any of this. No, yeah, you could just hear the. Scoff. Yeah what did he say he said? He looked at the photographs I. And he said. It looks like a phenomenon observed on many occasions especially when we work with projectors sometimes used in meteorology. Okay okay. Projectors used with meteorology I see the case built. Okay, all right, keep going okay. I'm picking up in down I'm on board and so he goes. Light is reflected by ICE, crystals or water droplets in the cloud. So depending on the density of that cloud if you like, we just talked about. The beam might be several hundred meters, thick and visible from a great distance. He further conjectured. Stuff like the race might come from an automobile because they have headlights. Headlights my point at the sky or they might reflect towards the sky, because buildings have windows and windows are reflected like he's very much over this mark. You're saying okay. I'm first of all. He seen everything, but on condescending, which means I talked down to people. I, I'm just trying to imagine a car that is somehow positioned with its headlights for three dollars goal on a giant hill somewhere just kind of sitting there shooting up because the thing, the problem with the headlight argument is that these headlights were not be static. Right so will they be moving, but also. There are no laser headlights. They could shoot all the way up into their, and then reflects down in those raise that we're observing. Maybe, I'm wrong mark. Maybe maybe you're right I just I. Don't see that, but okay Lo. Aim To you, Ben. But it's true and then. And then he points out the spotlight stuff and he points out that light beams come from shopping centers. He's basically the whole time is going you guys. Lights, you have lights. They're everywhere everywhere, Montreal we're almost in the twenty first century. The reflective surfaces everywhere the clouds in the ice crystals come on man, and it's interesting because you see other astronomy societies of the time There was one quote ailment. Dig through dig through notes, but there's there's one quote from. Someone. Who seems a little bit offended by this This claim that's. That's an alien rex terrestrial ufo. And then says. Oh, it's a dominic larose. Dominic! Larose I believe is the man who said you know. What in my organization? A lot of us came to it because we realized that quote Unquote Alien ufo's don't exist so. It's weird when you get into. This kind of debate because. Science Has the the lion's share of attention in these concept, or said in these conversations, and it should, but there's also some psychology in. They're involved in there. There's some grudges being held like when we learned some of the weird behind the behind the curtain business, going on with Mathon, which was frankly surprised, and you had nothing to do with aliens Maybe that's a conspiracy for another day, but. But. Let's look at the other reports, so let's take psychology far out of it as we can we know that. Like any other large.

"I got no well. Let me tell you this thing. Whatever it was was definitely. Unidentified. Yeah you better. Unfortunately for all the true believers out there, there does not seem to be again. We just have to say there's not a there's not a water tight case of extraterrestrial visitation. It does remain unidentified this craft this object this phenomenon, and while it seemed to be a real physical object of some sort. There's no indication that it did something like you know disobeyed the laws of. Of, physics, or generated any other abstract behavior, no non human creatures plopped out and warned us about the danger of nuclear war or scale pollution so far as we know. Maybe they missed that and the reporting, and this leads those on the more skeptical end of course to relegate this to the land of mundane whether phenomenon and and then subsequent exaggeration, which happens when people are panicking. So. Why do they say this? It all really goes back to the fog. Could this have been nothing more than spotlights? Reflecting off the clouds you know again the plows vote. Bonaventure is close to pretty tall buildings in downtown, Montreal, at least one of those had active spotlights or construction, but those things were, and those things can be clipped off right you can. You can make a request to turn that stuff off, but you can't tell everybody driving in a city to turn off their headlights at night. You know what I mean. I would say spotlights. Even the ones the you'll see you. Used in just shot up into the air. You know during a large event, maybe a movie theater every once in a while a Gentlemen's Club. The you'll. Will. You'll see exactly. They have a pretty specific shape that can be opened and closed. It's a Lens, but it expands at least slightly as it goes outward right correct. I say so. We're talking about lights that are just beamed up into the sky like that. Or you know reflections of some pretty. Spotlight of any kind I think it would look different than what we're seeing here. What we're seeing here is not something that I can rightly You know attribute any phenomenon that I've personally seen before. But Remember that doesn't take into account other kinds of lights. Some other shapes of you know lights go slights. Will of the West I mean I. can't completely you know move? I can't completely say it wasn't a reflection like that of some kind, because there's some other weird stuff going on here particularly with the angle of viewing the thing but. All of the evidence that I have been able to look at that. You've been able to look at me and we'll look at is stuff that was captured in nineteen ninety. Yeah, and that doesn't mean. We, we can't fully trust what we're looking at. It just means the you know. It's the how the resolution is going to be a little different less film right unless it's actual film right? A couple of these pictures were film The video quality of anything that was taken back then is going to be very low resolution. I would just say the technology maybe is not was not as sophisticated. Yes, they own point. Yeah, camera equipment of thirty years ago and yes. Yes, this should. Schalken in shocks and people listening and weird, some sout nineteen ninety was almost thirty years ago. It's like a few November seventh nine hundred ninety s few months away from. Thirty years ago and technology It's such a breakneck pace. You're right Matt I. would say you totally cannot trust that stuff it's it's fuzzy. You know if we just depended on those photographs and that video. It's not surprising at all to rank anything inconclusive, because even an actual craft like say a high altitude blimp, if those existed in the time, there be difficult to discern just given again that very low resolution, and then you know one thing, it's tempting to say whether phenomenon because it appears to gently just sorta recede into the clouds like that Gif or Jif of homer Simpson, sinking back into the topiary. But blimps could just is, and it would look the same to an observer. You know what I mean. Especially, if the cloud cover is increasing because as cloud, cover, increases and moist moisture, I don't WanNa do that voice, but moisture accumulates. Then it pushed. The clouds seemed to get lower right and heavier, so why I I'm just saying we can't based on the footage and we can't rule out either a solid object or whether phenomenon. The problem is. Again it goes back to vantage point. Because People at the hotel, the bonaventure to them this looks like a solid object and some of the including police, or are still convinced the state, but people from other vantage points. They still saw something, but they thought it was a weird reflection. You know like how you see lights in pools at night reflect weird. Weird ghost shadows from the water. Yeah, and you know that. Could make sense to me. I'm just trying to figure out. I'm trying to figure out how I feel about this guys I'm imagining you know the. The holographic technology the Hologram technology that uses missed as as a medium, so you just shine light on the list, and then you can have something three dimensional appear to be three dimensional pepper's ghost effect as in the haunted mansion at Disney sort of an older effects I believe so yes. Mirror as sort of an old school way of generating Hologram I believe their updated version. And a lot of it goes into yield project blue beam by the way. Of Projecting images onto cloud cover, which is really like you said Ben just moisture at certain densities, and as it's more dense, you can get a solid looking object. In the cloud, cover the fog. As we're calling here. Does appear to be very very thick in that area in I'm wondering. If I just haven't seen that kind of technology at play yet. It could be something like that that I just don't have.

Even the ones the you'll see you. Used in just shot up into the air. You know during a large event, maybe a movie theater every once in a while a Gentlemen's Club. The you'll. Will. You'll see exactly. They have a pretty specific shape that can be opened and closed. It's a Lens, but it expands at least slightly as it goes outward right correct. I say so.

"That. His aircraft is passing near these light beams and. It doesn't run into anything. It flies through the sky uninterrupted. Thank goodness, right and this led police to say well okay. Whatever this thing is! This object is much higher in elevation than we thought. And so the journalists says okay. The altitude this plane might be around three hundred and seventy meters. That's what I thought I? But then there was near Canada pilot on the hotel roof. WHO said no? No, no, no, no, no way man. You write the reports. I'll do the I'll do. The allegation estimates because I fly planes and that thing is I. Assure you my friend. Twenty, five hundred between twenty, five, hundred and three thousand meters, so that's almost ten thousand feet in the air so that we have to like how huge that thing distill look big from that distance is saying. So, of course in interviews, which you can still find online, there are multiple witnesses were certain. This was an alien or extraterrestrial craft, including some members of the police force, which was surprising to me. There was an interview with one fifteen years later, said, nope, never saw anything like it. Not of earthly origin you can also, you can also find some reports that detail. will you can find the entirety of the police report in French and you can translate it It includes. The police forces own statements, but the includes drawings little drawings like this from the witness, yesterday's look like circles with the lines of light coming out. Yeah, so where the light was in position and then wear that light rail essentially was observed. The lights are all like what Yellowish Green I guess. Yeah, it's it's. It's very yellow. To My I, at least with that kind of green, I don't almost shading in there and I'm honestly not being there. In one thousand, nine hundred I don't know what kind of light pollution is existing in that area of Montreal to you know color, the clouds which occurs in any major metropolitan area, but It looks oddly Yellow Green. Right, that's correct and will will figure out exactly what that means. As as we continue now, who Matt you alluded to earlier about what made this citing different and we have, we have several. Features that distinguish it from the majority of sightings, but yeah, the the the first one I think is what we already talked about just the number of witnesses who were there. Who who? Weren't just some. This is awful to say. But it wasn't just some farmer, or you know some a single person or a single family in a rural area to people in a truck. Yeah it, and that's not to cast aspersions on anyone who would fit that description just means there are multiple people there multiple. Many of them are authority figures when you would consider to be an authority figure when it comes to. Let's say any aircraft that's going to be in the sky in in a controlled airspace and there were also you know there's a funny story. One of the witnesses said the hotel I think she was. She was added wedding, or she was attending a wedding.

Brian said Hey guys I've been binging. binging on the show all summer, and after listening to the candidates Roswell episode I remember that my dad told me about a very famous incident here in Montreal back in nineteen ninety that he remembered seeing on the local news so far I have not heard any of your episodes mentioned it and Brian. You are correct by friends, fellow conspiracy realists, but is something we are going to correct for ourselves today in this episode Montreal Nineteen Ninety. There was something weird in the sky. It's true. And we'll. We'll get to the crazy parts of this, but but first let's let's start with the facts, Montreal. What is you know it's in Canada right, but what else? It's a band I like that's of module. That's right. That's right there actually on tour right now. Our mutual friend and my roommate an lifelong pal frank Recently went to Montreal and said it was a delightful Cornucopia of delicious foods and arts and very clean, and the the metro system was very clean, and he had a wonderful time. He said it is the second largest city right in Canada. At least when you're talking about population, which is Kinda. Cool, right? It takes up about three fourths of Montreal. It's an it's an older city at least as far as this continent goes. Colonial history dates back into the sixteenth century, it started as a missionary settlement of course like every other European based American city. There were plenty of people living there beforehand, but anyway Europeans come it becomes a missionary settlement, and there was plenty of money to be made in religion, but they also realize they could make a another ton of money. If they got into the for trait, so Montreal became a hub of the for trappers would traveled to from acquiring pelts, and then they will return there to sell and ship them. As for the character of Montreal, as in in days of your, and in the Modern Day, the best way to say it is that if you traveling to Montreal. Or Quebec in general from the US, the first thing you'll notice is that it is very very. Very, French, yes, and again goes back to its history, but also right now we're talking about twenty twenty, the majority of Montreal's population French Canadian.

There's other places that might actually meet that young can CHASA AL jeers they're both populous in their own right and They're also probably growing more quickly in terms of birth rate, and maybe well once Montreal was known for exporting fine pelts and furs in the late nineties. Kinda got reputation for exporting some fine musical bands such as the UNICORNS. The Arcade Fire Wolf Parade. Leonard Cohen is from Montreal. A lot of great bands Tim Hecker more drone kind of thing. The best nerd lakes the dears. I was huge in the Montreal music scene back in the late nineties and still am today. I'm very much. But all in all Montreal is a is a beautiful place. It's full of history. It's full of culture. It's considered one of the most cosmopolitan hey, a European cities on the entirety of the North American continent. However, it's also known for something else Oh. Yes, been like a lot of large metropolitan cities, there are strange lights in the sky above Montreal strange lights that. May Not come from any human origin. Or, maybe some kind of secret government experience, but in the end they're unidentified. They're flying and their objects and that makes them. UFO's.

Are we wasting time trying to fix things like this when there's clearly so much other bigger fish to fry out there. That's kind of how I feel about it and I think after reporting the story you know I dare say that having a Bagel going to be a guilty pleasure from now on. Because you know I'll be thinking about the environmental implications wood burning ovens but at the end of the day. You know there are bigger fish to FRY. There are more are agreed producers of pollution and and an emissions than these Evans. I would guess so. We're constantly having to weigh these things in in our lives and you want to be good global citizens but the end of the day as one environmental scientists said to me.

That's a baby. What else did we learn so with the community of people who like to be spanked prefer to themselves as spank owes spe goes? Isn't that cute spank. OHS sounds like a really good morning cereal I I wasn't I wasn't observing and I think we may have had more people join us since our initial game. This guy are use Banco. You can stay you can stay okay so the name of the game was getting back in here with the people as Pegos spank what the fuck did. I just walk into okay. I like to be spanked to. It's okay my friend okay. We like it. We all the people the spanking though I don't know bankers bankers bankers always spank spank goes. I'm just GONNA put this out there. SPANKY SPANKY spanky would be getting the spank employee employer the other. I think we we learn and actually you might be able to speak better to this the me because I was I I I was a little loss spoke to a guy named James Cantor. He's a sex therapists very like well established sex therapist based in Toronto and we were talking about the five year itch they they were no that term the five year which well it's called the seven year itch concerning the seven year itch which is like essentially yet you couple up seven years later whether it's the male of the family they typically stereotypically. It's like the man gets the seven year itch and he's like I'm now like you know Dad's now looking for the mistress and like going off doing his own thing well James Cantor referred to that as actually technically thickly biologically. It's it's more so the five year itch because I wish you didn't bring this up because I I really don't understand Santa well either but tensely in essentially it's the the the length of time it takes to locate a mate court that made eight impregnate that mate and raise a baby to the point of it no longer needing nursing that that's the actual technical length of time time that is is like developmentally part of our of our brain so what's what's the kids grow up and good to go then biologically man's like all right time time to go do the same thing to somebody else to procreate and create another individual that thing too that he touched on and maybe this was off the microphone was like it's not it's also just as biologically sound and intuitive for women to have sex with many many men to provide vied for to make sure that the youth or the being that they bring into being as provided for so like they're they're in sometimes there it was it was quite plausible that that multiple men could be the degree the producer of the same baby which is probably scientifically debunked by now but at one time it was like even if you're pregnant keep having sex with men because their genes will the genes will affect the the baby be they bring a day so needless to say the last like five say but we just talked about it for twenty five straight up the last like six days five days whatever it's been have been like I opening for the two of us. I feel like I've learned a lot. I've learned a lot too and I- endlessly endlessly Yeah Melissa curious so and so that's again you know for the people that are just joining us because I know we've got a bunch of people just walk in the streets and coming in and going plundering combined listening to you. If you have sex you should definitely pay attention. This is the stuff that we talk about and so a big part of the shows you know we talked about our own sexual lives again. We're married but we live we we are poly-amorous so we see which means for people who don't understand what that is we we are not closed off to the idea of having having whether it be sexual or emotional relationships with other people in our lives. Brian has a boyfriend back home. I have a girlfriend back come. We we have partners multiple partners and that's a big part of her life speaking of that I there's there's something this I haven't talked to you about this yet and I was kind of saving it for a recording and I figure fuck it. Whatever we're Montreal? Maybe I can get some some some thoughts from the people that are listening but I went on a date last week and it it it was like there's a little bit of a predicament in that. I don't really know what to do now like I don't know like how to take this further but essentially what happened was I went on a date with someone that I met on tinder or bumble or something like that not that I should know I should know and do all right before I go into this. Do you feel like I have type. I have no oh idea okay great. I'm glad you said that because while I was on this date in my head I was like really smart women. Yeah I can tell you for sure. One hundred percent the hey smarter in the is going on the WHO who's build smart tonight so I met this really smart lady on Tinder and we went on a date and while we were on the day and I was thinking to myself the reason I ask because I was thinking to myself Bridie ah or BECCA would both probably go this is not this Gal is not your type but we had a very like lovely the evening the conversation flow very nicely. She's a she's a law student and very like she is actually extremely smart. We're on the date and I was going going holy. Fuck them stupid. You know like the whole time but she's very beautiful very smart very engaged. The date was going very well. So we go back to my plane. Our place you were not there and we were having some drinks drinks led to you know make an out making out led to fooling around. We didn't have sex. This was a gal who as far as I could tell was like I don't have sex on the first date now whether she was just saying that to me because she wanted to say that to me. I don't I don't know but we weren't going to have sex but we did. We did do everything else under the under the umbrella of like Nick falling around and I felt really good about it and I was like yeah. This went really well now. Here's the thing pretext to that day. It was a day where are the night before.

The Yoga sick boy class and afterwards I went home cleaned up but didn't take like I took a shower but like I took this is one of the cleanest menu of ever seen. I just want you to know that see the cleans very thoroughly so this is why this day this is why the story is going to surprise you talking to you who aren't sure if you're GONNA stay for the rest of the conversation right so I took a shower but like I did the shower I was like I'm GonNa date tonight. So I literally like ran my head through the water to alike do my hair and then washed the shit out of my deck and my bottle that was it popped out shower went on the date unwell came home hooked up she went home.

Let's introduce what's happening right now because there's some people here sitting and they they know what I mean they sell them. You know what the fuck is going on. Some of them might not know what's going on. I hold it first question. I love getting to know you is have you learnt. Have you listened to. I heard you I what's his podcast called. Turn me on podcast. Couple people have not heard our podcast okay great okay. That's what I thought everybody a little introduction. My name is Jeremy. Saunders name is Brian Mcclain and together. We are the duo behind Termi on podcast and variety center so so excited why don't you why don't you take the reins and explain to people what what turned me on so turn me on was born because we we have a deep curiosity about talking to people about what it's like to be a human being who is a sexual being so someone who has sex or doesn't have sex but this is all a part of our biology and so maybe let's interested in to talk about that led. Maybe it's interesting to to dive into those subjects. That's a good point. I mean the fact that none of us would be here if it weren't for the act of sex is kind of what makes this podcast interesting and also the fact that really a lot of people don't want us to talk about it is also interesting. Let's also very interesting. Eh a big portion of the world I mean maybe let's keep it to this country that we live in. We're all about exploiting it and our and our sexuality be for advertising purposes but when we actually want to get down to business and talk about like what's pleasurable and do we deserve pleasure then we don't we don't we don't really ever want to give that that subject the time of day at least that's what I found from during this podcast is like we do it but we don't. We don't really want to acknowledge it so that's where we come in but that's also we're for all of all of you. Come in We're GONNA sit here for the next hour and a bit. Maybe an hour and a half who knows and talk about sexuality. Yeah probably like an hour for those of you who are like I'm conscious. Well what why don't we kick it off. We do live shows around the country and and this is our first time ever doing a live show here in the beautiful city of Montreal but when we do these live shows we like I get the audience a little bit involved and so we have a little game that we like to kick off with just that you know we're up here talking about our sex alive and talking about sex in general so we figured why not get you involved and get to know you a little bit more because if you do listen to the show if you do listen to the show back here you know that you probably know a little bit more about us as sexual beings than you would know about I would say like most the people in your fucking life so so why don't we get to know the audience here and play this little game that you liked to call. What do you call it? I call it stand up. Sit Down but let's let's send some of you are already standing. Let's call raise your hand and put it down a fuck that stand up sit down. If you're standing up. You're not sitting. Raise your hand. If if you're standing up you should sit down otherwise the game doesn't quite work down so basically ugly the way this game works is. I'm going to read some statements if they're true for you. You'RE GONNA stand up if they're not true for you. You'll remain seated. Let's test it out albeit subject okay so okay so this is how the game works. My name is Jeremy. I have a podcast called Hermione. I have a podcast has called sick boy podcast. I have three nipples. I understand the game I have tattoos see we're going to start off pretty green was young. I have tattoos that I regret okay. Yes I wax my butt crack almost set up. You could just do a do have you tax you but before you have no care I consider myself kinky there. We go all right. I consider myself Vanilla Ella. There's no bad there's no. There's no judgment here. I'm in a relationship. Yes Sir all right. I'm in I'm in a consensual non on monogamous relationship her there we go I like to be spanked. I like to have my nipples pinched. GotTa gotTa keep standing My favorite position is doggy style. You've been standing for a long time I would be I would be naked all day. If I could yeah yeah okay I masturbate daily. Yes I masturbate too much is that is that a is that a question I have a sex story that that would blow your mind. way way way back traders. Come on and spectators hold on. What was the last question I have a sex story? That would blow blow your mind. That's true stand up of this year. I go one two three four okay. All right is wide open over here. I I'm great a dirty sock. Teach me your ways feel pretty good about it. I feel good about it I'm a virgin no standards. You're standing. You're you know what you say. There was a joke Innis to it. Are you actually a virgin really yes. Fuck Jeff owning that on that. I okay I like poppers. I even know what those are love boppers. I have or would pay for porn. Yeah Yeah Okay. I have a sex toy. Yep Okay okay well. Aj did you say who doesn't doesn't look around there's not about everybody has a second year not standing okay I have been tested for Sdi's in the last month that's an honorable reason to stand. I shouldn't sit shouldn't sit. I have named my Genitalia. Hold on for just come down here for a moment. Just come down here for a moment. What what have you named Your Genitalia Bunny Bonny? I love the great. This is great. Okay okay. I spit swallow some of us. Neither that's fine. Okay I hold on. How how old are you yeah you? This is Mikey you with you at the white you at the money shirt come up here. Come here money sure Kimera. What's your name do are low? How'd you fifteen faulk? Oh No I you're not we're never killing. We're never going to be invited back to Montreal again. You're not being child sex trafficked. Are you okay. Uh Okay. I've had an affair I have been affected by unfair interesting. This is looking around. Let's get an interesting more people stood up and sat down but maybe that's because fifty percent of marriages end in divorce strew. We talk a lot about that okay. This is the end of the game and this is kind of a hard conversation hard hard question to end on a more serious questions. You're if you play the game. Give yourselves around of applause. If you felt pretty honest theirselves there what yeah it's really good to just get it off your chest and and be honest about it because honestly a lot of people aren't talking on sit down you didn't you weren't present for most of the game so the way the game goes as you stand up the statement. It is true for you. You remain seated if it's not I'll give you one question. Since you're late I like to have my butthole licked the majority of people you can thank you Montreal. You freaky motherfucker yeah all right I mean let's just get that out of the way first. Thing is pretty fun. Yeah I agree. I I gotta say this. It feels pretty damn exciting to be here. Montreal I will I will say this. One of the big big reasons why I feel pretty elated to be here. Is that Montreal you know not much. Elba Quebec itself plays a very large role in my own like like upbringing my own like sexual exploration sexual evolution because I remember the very first time I ever made myself come was from something something that came straight out of Quebec which is called blue new. We and I don't know if I don't know if this is like it might not resonate as much the people sitting here but for outside of Quebec Blue New e is a life changing events. I stayed up up for hours. Do I remember it from like you know when you watch TV and the signals coming in so it's just like constantly like uploading on television and what's happening here yeah that weird sort of like Glitz note fucking thing and you're like you know maybe now not so much but so so my thanks to you Quebec for allowing myself to get up off to some softcore porn you guys do softcore porn probably better than anybody else in Canada but also I feel like Quebec's at least Montreal seems to be pretty like sexually liberated city. There's something very I think we talked about this before. There's something very like yet the something very European the in about it and by that I mean in European countries seem to be much more sexually open than like western Western countries are or North American countries or cities what have you. I think that's our perception that I don't know if it's true. We're not from here so we don't know but that that is the perception were where are we filmed for. The people that don't back said Nova Scotia or Prince Island Nova Scotia and and I went to university here and I also feel the same way like Montreal was the first place I.
