"And their lingering effect with me to discuss marks Rick Salute, he's a journalist, critic, author and playwright. You may know his columns from the globe in Mail and the Toronto Star. She lecops a former deputy prime, minister, of Canada for twenty years, she was a liberal MP and Charlie foreign. He's written eleven books, including a biography of Mordecai Richler and the essay collection join the Revolution Comrade. A conversation now turns to current politics especially in the US, where suddenly the word socialism is back. How how strange is it that we're seeing that sort of strain of socialism actually growing up in the US? That doesn't have such a long history of strong kind of leftist. It's quite different, obviously from socialism and inverted commas, of China say children's bears almost no relationship to Marxism. In fact, among the many ironies of China's socialism is that they used capitalism to get people out of poverty. Socialism had failed spectacular. Maoism it failed spectacularly that bring the Chinese poverty. Instead they use the market. Socialism means different things in different places. It's inevitable I guess because of the potent see the US, the size of the US, because of our proximity us to reference it into deeply interested in what's unfolding, but there are many many different ways. Socialism has been integrated accepted become simply. Normal terms of government it is I think not to be forgotten. That United States is the only Western liberal democracy without healthcare. So that's how far behind are so, it is singular. I want to ask something well. I mean the. Of treating marks, scripture are a really great. You know it wasn't China recently Lennon's big idea when he finally got power was. Let's try some capitalism here. The new economic program after the revolution succeeded so. There's no way I mean reality smacks you in the face. No matter what theory you come with, and you have to be Crying responding to it. One of the challenges is tied to. A small group of people controlling the message, if you were an office holder or somebody running for office, United States, and you're so afraid. Because in the case of the Democrats, the big debate in the Democrats is that you have all these quote, unquote wing nuts on the left. That's that's the message that's coming out. Is it correct I'm not saying it? Depends Democrats. Just but the but the idea what what trump is able to exploit. Is the idea that within the democratic. Party itself there is a movement to equality. And then there's a movement to the status quo, and that's what the big story is right now..

"It's seven forty one here on this Friday morning while the house of representatives is set to up vote on that used in this package that was approved by the Senate when we were first told that they were trying to do it by basically a vote a voice vote which would require all of them or at least a quorum of them to be there in the capital but now there is word that some under two of the Congress of men or women might require that vote and so there are many we're told to get to the capital be able to do this not easy in this day and age because there are fewer flights there's the travel is difficult as you know there are one of our South Florida congressman the was the first to well basically the first member of Congress diagnosed with the crown of ours and we're pleased to be joined by him this morning so for consumer deals pro art room public district twenty five you from a trade by the way it Mario de begin Mordecai Richler good to talk to how are you Sir I'm doing fine how are you feeling I'm actually starting to feel a little bit better it's a it's the the first time that I haven't had a fever I think for two days now I haven't had a fever which is the first time since I got the buyers so that's a that's a very very good sign that hopefully finally started to get over right you six so many hands it you've course required to travel and things like that you have any idea how you actually got I have no idea how it could have been a little later it could have been in the hallways who knows when you're right I I deal with so many people including some folks from out of the country remember that that that that we wouldn't shut that down speaker didn't shut down the capital until frankly you know I had already hasn't gotten it obvious right thanks to the doctors but what's going on there today it we were first told us to be a voice vote word you would have to go to but now there's gonna have to be what it leads to corn to get there it looks like at least some of your members Mike that require this yeah it was actually maybe one or two that it you know it doesn't change the outcome that's the the irony of this is that if if this is a member who who wanted to change the outcome and sure but he's just doing it I don't know why he's doing this because because again he's putting not only members in jeopardy but he's putting the entire country and Jeffrey having people haven't come from all over the country to one place to congregate to do this when it's not necessary and it's a bill that is you know who's at it passes Senate unanimously not one person objected to it not one Republican or Democrat now it's not perfect by any stretch of imagination so again it's the it's the nature of an emergency situation like we're facing so why he would do this just having no outcome no different outcome it is hard to understand and again particularly he's putting people in a great risk and I'm not only members of Congress those members of Congress venture gonna happen again dispersion go back home and so he used putting everybody at risk and yet there seems to be a member of the house not a surprising one at that who's always trying to just get his fifteen seconds of fame regardless of it having no effect on the outcome congressman from Kentucky by the way so we'll just leave it at that it's eight hundred eighty pages if you know you don't sacrifice the good for the great it's not a perfect bill anything in this bill that surprise you Congress look there are probably there are some things that probably shouldn't be in there and and and that's like again the nature of the beast when you're putting together something this is complicated this big and this quickly but I will tell you it also has things that are essential to make sure this economy doesn't collapse the people out there the Americans can get can continue to work that they don't lose their jobs the jobs are available when this when this tragedy finally subside so it is an essential piece of legislation it has to support bipartisan support of the house and Senate Republicans and Senate senators Republicans and Democrats and senators and house members and also of the president of the United States and again that's why it's it's really sad that one or two members that will not change the outcome just because they want to get the the you know the it was press coverage that would be willing to jeopardize not only the bill is the bill will be put in jeopardy in jeopardy but they're willing to put Americans at risk that's that's why it's hard to believe the answers the final question for anyone let you go without asking you about the the indictments of Nicolas Maduro and other members of an Israeli government do you think this is a more of a pressure campaign to try to convince him to step down because the the results eventually would probably let him an American prison I I I think if anybody has a been thinking that the administration wasn't serious about their attitude towards the Venezuelan dictatorship well it at what as well as the Cuban dictatorship and the Nicaraguan dictatorship I think those those doubts have probably gone away look that the administration is doing this because they see the milder version as a threat to the national security interests at stake it is and they're just putting out the facts and evidence of this these policies reflect the facts on the ground and so I am extremely optimistic of of where this administration is taking its policy towards these dictatorships in this hemisphere again it's it's because it is the right thing for the national security interests the United States that has to be the number one policy consideration and I'm extremely pleased at the foreign policy of this administration yes good move by the congressmen were so please join us this morning we're glad that you're feeling better but I know it's tough to be able to talk for for a period of time we appreciate it good luck to you feel better thank you Sir appreciate that thank you very much this is congressman Burgess blur you know it's it's a it's hard to believe all the things that this Congress has got it to go through to be able to get this done when they all agree that it's the right thing to do for the American people yeah they see in that Republican or I will let congressman from Kentucky and what are they thinking they're not going to change the outcome we're gonna require all these folks to head to the capitol and they will put them at rest yes Sir welcome back traffic

They call it development hell when a studio buys the rights to a movie it often takes years before a single shot as ever filmed however if development goes through numerous screenplays writers and even directors directors on the way to production. It said to be caught in development hell and for many of those films they just never make it out sadly that list of films as along and many of them are well known but way at the bottom is a film that few have heard about what's called the incomparable took. It was a fish out of water satire written in nineteen sixty three by Mordecai richler. It follows the story of took an Innuendo from Baffin island off the coast of Canada. In the film he finds his way to the mainland England and soon becomes the fascination of Toronto's elite the more time he spends with them the more famous he becomes an eventually comes to embody the same greed and excess of his hosts forgetting where he originally came from in the nineteen seventies. The book caught the attention of Norman. Jewison a Canadian director who launched a fame after directing judy garlands famous comeback special in nineteen sixty one. He went onto direct several award winning motion pictures. Including in the heat of the night and fiddler on the roof it took several years to put together a screenplay and get the project greenlight by studio but by the early nineteen eighties. Jewison was ready to begin casting his first choice choice to play at took headband. Saturday night live. Alum John Belushi. This was around January or February of nineteen eighty two however on March fifth of that year Belushi Belushi was found dead of a drug overdose in Los Angeles hotel with their star tragically lost the film sat in limbo then in nineteen eighty-six stand up comics. Superstar Sam Kinison jumped on board insisting on playing the title character according to people involved in the production Kennison didn't even read the script before accepting the role. You showed up two sets and managed eight days of shooting in full costume. But he didn't like the script and stopped production to perform rewrites. Naturally the studio wasn't happy about that and they filed the lawsuit which put the project on hold for another several years before it could resume though Kennison died died in a tragic car accident but the Hollywood machine kept churning looking for a lead actor for the film next in line was John Candy. Who was interested in the role role but needed time to read the script before he would accept a few months later? He died of a heart attack without ever having made a decision it also given friend and screenwriter Michael. Donahue alert at the script donahue had been known to have chronic migraines but suddenly passed away of a cerebral hemorrhage the same year. It seemed like any actor who approached the rule of a took met a tragic end but every few years the script would surface again and make another attempt at production in nineteen ninety-seven. It felt like the right eight years to try as another former. SNL CAST member found himself. On the top of the casting. List Chris Farley had become a comedy icon by the time he had turned thirty three but died of a drug overdose only months after reading the script just like John Belushi and just like John Candy before Him Farley headset the script to a friend and fellow fellow. SNL CAST member named Phil Hartmann. Hartmann died five months later since then. No one has tried to revive the took project for production. which is probably a good idea since director was looking to cast an actual annual it for the role anyway but beyond that it appeared as though the film was cursed from the start? What with comedy legends? Suddenly dying after coming in contact with the script. There are a lot of unanswered questions surrounding the entire ordeal.

"To be saying it was who did this giggling yeah right now no I know pointed they're gonna be a trap door is that we're gonna come hit say no no no it was Mordecai Richler he Williams when the Giller prize and you were up against a remarkable group of authors I do want to acknowledge the mall now the other authors shortlisted for the killer with David as most guests making go coals Michael crommie Alex a land and Stephen price you toward the country together doing a series of events in recent months is there a moment that stands out for your time yeah I I mean first of all I don't think we were up against each other I think we were with each other for the whole time and I think we still are and so is it unfortunate kind of consequence that this is how on the situations need to end but there is the list is the winner in this case and I feel on that way but like recent priceless rate the Griffin priceless recently stuff nobody emerges as like a singular spectacular talent and all that this is a good list of people in Canada for the next twenty five years how what do you think will die twenty five years I think we got a leasing twenty seven okay yeah right I got a musician opted to more than that we'll take a real thing but we got a good many years together right with us there no it was a like many different moments they have personalities emerge at the waiters points in New York Meghan was like I've never been to New York I have watched a lot of SNL and thirty rock or a lake she's loved to label just to go to the gym with with David and Alex is always wonderful to yeah different different moments different parts it's Stephen price you know you could always just kind of you know touch his shoulder he's a he's a good man right it was Michael crommie off yeah what's you go down that track rate it just it's floodgates it was the first acceptance speech of ever heard right think you said something like anyway we'll all see it a barbecue really listen but it's going to make that happen I hope so you know CBC both should make that happens you know Roger should be out there growing in the backyard all over you didn't write this book because you're expecting to win the killer obviously you wrote it because you had something you wanted to say so can you take me back to the very beginning of this journey your poetry and short story collections very well received before this reproduction your killer award winning novel is your first novel you said this book took six years to write how did this idea for this book start to take shape in your mind yes seven years if it's hard to find the exact or origin point rate for this I actually think it all for shortfalls in preoccupations in my thirties or so last book was a bit like relationships and finding love in dealing with sort of online and digital platforms right it is a kind of contemporary reality of how we meet people and this book was sort of like beyond that how it had family serve get together how do they form how they destroyed and how are they reformed and what's I'll like what's the agent or the mechanism or the catalyst like how was love able to both tickets through the formation and destruction every formation we keep doing this made in this the you know he was keep populating right this way so it was kind of like a mid thirties crisis from on a man on a thick we expect this kind of subject to be written at the by women but men we feel this to rate like we don't speak a bit like abject loneliness and stuff but the symptoms of like watching CFL on a Sunday evening alone I mean that's there's a kind of profound loneliness behind that and so took knowledge this is mad that we we we do care about relationships and we do care about families and with I'm interested in all that like all of that was behind it part of my life a point in my life on being honest with the men around me too and the people around me and just kind of running through it have you heard from for men who read the book you said they probably never had this I don't know if men would sort of he said the if you've never had this experience oh no sorry who never had this did you never have someone had right so I I mean I think you're right about that in writing watching sports on a Sunday can be such a profoundly lonely thing to do that you know that they have you heard from a man who said you know you're right I never really talked about that before no I don't I don't suspect they will very much right unless it's the right context and whatnot but for someone to admit that the feel something doesn't sort of make it more sure last June right like we know it to be true and we don't need confirmation if it exists there and people don't have to sort of come back in and admit that yeah I'm I don't I don't mean to be go she in yeah hundred thousand dollars I'm not gonna ask I'm not gonna ask what are you gonna do with it you know I I am curious are you gonna get a little treat for yourself this is something you're going to get from this brief time that you've known me here what he suspected going to do with the dairy queen blizzard is that's the first thing that popped in my head is like maybe just get a I was thinking like I was one thing but it's free like maybe a new chair I think of him had a pet or pad at hand no there please be some really Monday in kind of pleasure they think that dairy queen blizzard is not a bad idea actually I do have I think we will check no I I you know I think people of you to say like you could do something profound with it and you're gonna like arnelle I will solve the water crisis in California or whatever but let I think that's just a certain an investment for a little bit really Dolly until I figure out what's the best use for that money you know what a score blizzard on me or if you don't have a I have a habit next I mean is we need to go a prize impact I'm I'm sure you're working on another work already yeah does what it does it when it got prize impact that process like are you working on more fiction now because of this or now now now yeah put your collection is gonna come out next year and then after that I'm working on a novel right so get a deep in like two projects different genres and beyond that I can't see that far right they'll take me to forty three or so forty four close off like this somewhere out there listening to someone struggling to become a writer someone struggling to do creative work someone trying to write the first novel maybe someone who just won Canada's biggest literary prize for his first novel what do you wish you'd known back then when you were starting out the a in the source struggle struggle period just see someone is listening to this right now where you were maybe fifteen hours ago it's interesting that you frame it has struggled all right but also to think of it like what you're doing now is probably among your top two or three greatest pleasures as well so I mean the story is yes seven years of a very hard process and all that but I also spent seven years in private with some really wonderful characters that now like to they have access to the world but for a while they were just mine right like in a way that your family's just yours your dogs just yours of enemy that kind of pleasures just yeah that that is worth it regular no killer like that's that's

"We were able to make Portland one of only five stops American publicity tour not only Portland's reputation mutation as a book town key but also Atwood and the late Ursula Kayla Gwynne where longtime friends and so I do. Think the spirit of La- gwen was also so helping us. Margaret Atwood has written over fifty works of fiction nonfiction and poetry starting in the nineteen sixties. She has one more prizes and awards was the night time to enumerate here but perhaps suffice to say Atwood's work has consistently combined urgent engagement with the most pressing issues of our time political social environmental with a level of artistic accomplishment that is singular in the literary world over the span of her incredible fifty plus year. Your career. Her persistent and continued popularity. Speaks to the enduring relevance of her work at it was in conversation with Portland. Writer Omar L. L. A. cod and. There's something special about listening to a conversation between artists who are either ends of their career. In this case Margaret Atwood is one of our grandmasters masters of literary fiction and who at the age of eighty is still producing some of our best work. Omar Al Assad is journalist and writer and was lauded for his first novel American Eric and war which was published just two years ago. Here's Ellicott so al.. We all doing tonight. I think we can work with that. Thank you so much for doing this. My pleasure as always so. Here's here's the new book is doing pretty well. I'm Canadian not bad for those of you. Who Don't know? The testaments recently broke the record for highest first week sales in Canadian history since they started measuring the I was watching. Watch a lot of previous interviews for for this one and there was one from I think early seventies it was TV. Oh the public broadcaster custard on -Tario and there are a number of very jarring things about this interview you're being interviewed on TV. Oh one of which being that in the entirety of the studio was covered covered. Shag carpeting for some reason. I don't know what the Hell is going on in Ontario in the seventies but everything was covered in carpeting and this was terrifying sidewalks alongside covered. Aesthetically irresponsible I think. And this this gentleman interviewing you repeatedly tries to get at this this point of when are you going to write nice women characters why. Where is all this cruelty coming from and finally say something to the effect of like look at what Mordecai Richler is writing? Look at his characters. Has He ever been called cruel and I think one of the things about this incredible career that has spanned quite a long time. The amount of uphill fighting you had to do to get to a place where it was even where the work could be discussed as the work. I'm wondering if you've you've seen changes in that and if so how. How has it changed on a topic? Well people don't review my hair anymore for quite a bit. We're the initial reviews. That'd be like here and has gotten less interesting because maybe they just wouldn't dare call me Medicis snaky haired person anymore. But they did yes. Where would you like to start on that? Maybe with the Time magazine interview of Nineteen Teams Sixty nine in which the Nice reporter who was wearing white songs and loafers and it was December. Send Ed you telling a couple of interesting things. How do you find time to write? What with the housework and all? Aw We're on. I said Look under the Sofa so and then he said do men like you and I said why. Don't you ask them. It was it was a flip of the other question. Question is to get all the time which was do you like men which one I would say depends which ones they're they're individuals also just like people. The there was one review. That was the good old days I was going to say. There was one review. I went back to I went back and looked at the original views of the handmaid's tale and there was one review view that was in my my belief in my pay old paper the globe in Mail and it was one of the most sort of quintessentially Canadian reviews. I think yeah I've ever read by which I mean. It was generally favorable of the book but accused you of reaching too far. I was the strangest is behind of Canadianness of like it was a good book which she should have set her sights lower. which is just mind boggling to me do you remember the the initial schol sort of reception of this book? Well it was different from English. Speaking market to English speaking market so in England you were then had a religious civil war in the seventeenth century and weren't intending at that time to have another one Not what's going on there right now is a religious war but what would you call it So at that time back in the whenever Robert was nineteen eighty five. They said jolly good yarn. What an imagination? So so remember that the Cold War was still going on and Europe was very loathe to think of the United States as anything anything but the best interim freedom openness democracy fairness for all beckoning with open hands hands but until they actually thought of the United States because in contrast to what was going on behind the iron curtain a very shutdown place. I visited it at that time so England was jolly good. Yarn Europe was basically legally. It wouldn't happen and Canada was nervously. Couldn't happen here in addition to don't try so hard. Oh yes be more modest and in the United States it was split it was. It was partly wouldn't ever happen here and on the other hand was. How long have we got? And that was in nineteen ninety-five free. So someone spray painted along the Venice. Beach Wall in California L. Important the handmaid's tale is already here and I did talk. Show in San Francisco just to stir things up. It was the phone inch out of the guys that well of course you're joking aren't you. I mean nothing like that would ever happen here and the switchboard Linda. Charisma's are you insane. Yes till people knew because it was the years of pushback against the seventies ladies that was already happening and I was cutting out clippings one cut out then today one print out but I was cutting them out and people were saying already what they would like to do if they had the power. So you can go raid these clippings clippings for yourself there in the Fisher Rare Books Library in Toronto. I was looking at some of them The Penguin the Penguin Group published some of them I I was thinking a little bit about there was I was watching this short documentary where you were talking to interviewer and you're talking about. I think it was life before man and you're talking about how one of the characters in that book and I don't think you do this very often but it was based on a real person it was based on your friends and and that this and was such a terrible human being that you had to tone down in the book. Doc didn't believe I said to my friend. Can I use your engine my book and she said go ahead. She might as well be his full for something..

"Ah Yes and you know the New Statesman the economists last year on the anniversary of his two hundredth anniversary of birth essentially council the second look at marks and and that is surprising you might think I just wonder though why you think there's been this reemergence frequent. Actually I think there may never you've been a period in the last. Two centuries were marked reading marks was less necessary because reality is like reading marks so you can let go of the books expand on that reality is like reading marks well. I think I think the it's not just an inequality that's manifest. It's it's misery on one side and difficulty and excessive luxury and appropriation of wealth on the other. I think that the young I mean I'm I'm sort of obsessed with it because I have a kid with twenty and him and his friends and I think people don't people outside that demographic don't understand the desperation aspiration the actual desperation of middle-class kids in the West. It's it's always been manifest in the in the undeveloped world but this is different when I was becoming a Marxist in the sixties I studied with Markelle who was a guru of Marxism awesome at the time of Marxism had a MERC had beef with marks because he said marks insisted at the absolute miseration of the workers was had to be the prelude to a David Revolution in it didn't happen the workers. Were doing too well. I think now I mean why is there. Socialism among the young white wire is the is the youthful demographic graphic identify more socialists than capitalists one reason is because they're not can have much private property so it doesn't mean any they've already given up on having not just houses houses our cars bikes and they are into a sharing demographic. It's putting the social bagging socialism. It's also why you don't hear from a Cossio Cortez or others you don't hear the name of Marx they talk about being socialists and you don't need to hear it because it's now clear that they we have put the social back in socialism and marks in a way it's okay. He's kind of not nice to know that he's back there. I WANNA just pick up on a note. You mentioned that that people well don't identify themselves as with mark with the name and yet when criticism comes their way often that is a word that's used in a pejorative sense. You know whether it's is driving Corbin urban or in the states you do hear it as a as a negative isn't absolute generation gap. I mean it's you know if you grew up a prior to the to the fall of the Berlin Wall. You knew this reality of the red medicine reds under the beds. I try to explain it to my kids. My kids stories friends and I do better telling them the stories of King Arthur in the round table that has that's more plausible to them than than the the Cold War. You don't even know where it came from so it has it may have some purchase. I think there's an absolute demographic demographic gap and it just the the anybody who's young just slack jawed when that's raised socialism is just not a frightening word actually sort of makes sense. I was going to say I think a young person who isn't deeply interested in these ideas is not paying attention to to their lives or is experiencing an exceptional life life my daughter's a bit older and Rick's and they are in a world where they are told that there is unlikely they'll have permanent work. They should be happy to be the jumping on in and off jobs short-term jobs but by the way you have this fabulous smartphone and you're supposed to be expressing this hyper individuality and enjoying showing all the benefits of it but the smartphone is is itself part of an economy that is stripping away all the securities that you should have so if you can't kind of see the disappear the dissonance in that so of course they are of course they are going to be socialist. If that's the piece the other piece is we're talking in the North American context because what's happened is capital has been fleeing North America to make money off the backs of workers in other parts of the world at the same time if you look at let's say the emerging economy of Mexico there is there is a middle-class emerging and some of them want want that stuff. That's why go back to the the stuff thing because it's not it's not just of course the inequalities where one percent of the Canadian Indian population controls ninety percent of the wealth is completely unequal but we also make decisions like my daughter shops at value village and doesn't do labels both and I tried from the time. He was a little kid to teach her that stop reading these magazines. Give you a bunch of crap that this isn't something that was imbued by you know wise allies parental instruction. It's reality that has that has taught the young that you can't have all this absolutely and it's made them smart in ways that people with value with developed values don't have that it's it's perfectly fine to use somebody else to use a communal car you. You don't need the car sitting in front of your house all the time. It's actually ridiculous yeah but we grew up with it so I think all of the Internet stuff has put the social back and socialism. This is a generational actually love it at the that. They have their phones by your bed all the time and check it during the night. I think it's a good thing it they wake up. They check it the see if somebody's in trouble they'll call and if not the wait till the morning they are connected. They're not left isolated. The nuclear family was the worst for for creating kind of negative individualism the cutoff in your room this way you're connected to everybody all oh time that's like the image of the United Humanity. It's like you know I'd like to. I'd like to take some umbrage with that because because what happens is not not to say that I walked into a movie theater in scene four kids of probably your son's age wjr all on their phones waiting in line to buy their tickets because they're going to the movies together so zero in per person communication and when they are talking and I can say this because I'm on twitter feed as well. It's like you create these groups of like minded people who communicate with each other other and don't challenge anything that each other saying if you go in that world you're just hearing the echo of your own views multiplied which allows extremes to just because you never challenged but bringing it back to the to the resonance. I mean we agree. I think that the idea that stemmed from marks have read residents in the younger generation's. Th The question. The that I wonder about is how useful is that echo though in actually tackling the problems that those youth are facing globalised environment you know the climate crisis I mean you talked a little bit but this Charlie just wonder if you can pick up on that note how useful is marks in dealing with with the very real and different challenges that young people face today compared to what we did our earlier as I said I think mark simply their Marxist in every bit of our conversation conversation say if you pick up a book written in the Eighteenth Century and you realized that before mark simply there were huge areas of human experiences simply. We're not being discussed west. We're not they didn't they didn't exist until he put them there. Marxist present in all our conversations and our dialogues and thinking about everything relationships with with with power with money all that stuff with history. I suggest that it will be more useful if younger people develop their own language that fits it's their realities as and she'll we're talking there was Thinki- Marxist concept of Alien Nation but of course he was not talking about quite the same kind of alienation that we're we're talking about the Ilyushin from technology or the alienation from each other the technology brings which are two sides of the same thing but he was in that he was getting at something very profound about how people come to feel about their own lives and their own destinies so I would just suggest you just find a new way of framing that away that works for now. I can't speak up on the yeah I mean the nation the essentially alienated alienating from yourself and your own life and your own productive productive labor and I think I think everybody feels that in one way or another the more the less expressive your work is you're not a professional your pear the hands or something the more alienated you you feel and you might find something in Mark's. I'd like to think marks would have thought if I'm any of any use to you. Oh you know do it if not I'm fine to just sit back and watch what happens Rick Salute and speaking with Charlie Foreign and Sheila Copps at the Stratford for festival. I'm not yet you're listening to ideas on. CBC Radio One in Canada across North America on Sirius Xm in Australia on our end and around the world at CBC dot ca slash ideas you can also hear the show and download it using the new CBC listen. It's free for IOS and ANDROID. Today's episode is part of a series of conversations. I had live on stage aged the Stratford Festival looking at this -rupt thinkers and their lingering effect with me to discuss marks Rick Solution. He's a journalist critic. Nick author and playwright. You may know his columns from the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star Sheila Copps a former deputy prime minister of Canada for twenty years. She was a liberal. MP P and Charlie foreign he's written eleven books including a biography of Mordecai Richler and the essay collection join the Revolution Comrade a conversation conversation now turns to current politics especially in the US where suddenly the word socialism is back child. How strange is it that we're seeing that sort of strain of socialism actually growing up in the US that doesn't have such a long history of strong kind of leftist is quite different it obviously from socialism inverted commas of China say which bears almost no relationship to Marxism in fact among the many ironies China's socialism is that they used capitalism to get people out of poverty socialism had failed spectacular Maoism it failed spectacularly to bring the Chinese. He's out of poverty instead they used the market so socialism means different things at different places and it's inevitable I guess because of the potency of the US the size of the US because because of our proximity to the US to reference it and to be deeply interested in what's unfolding but there are many many different ways socialism has been integrated accepted become simply normal terms of gum it is I think not to be forgotten that the United States is the only western Western liberal democracy without healthcare so that's how far behind they are so it is singular attack something well. Y- yeah I mean the dangerous of of of treating marks at scripture are really great. You know it wasn't China recently Lennon's big idea when he finally got power was let's try some capitalism here. The new economic program after the revolution succeeded so there's no way I mean reality smacks you in the face. No no matter what theory you come with and you have to be you have to be spry in responding to it. One of the challenges is tied to a small group of people controlling the message if you were an office holder somebody running for office. United States and you're so afraid because in the case of the Democrats right now the big debate in the Democrats is that you have all these quote unquote wing nuts on the left. That's that's the message that's coming out. Is it correct I'm not saying is risen. It depends which Democrats just but the but the idea what trump is able to exploit is the idea that within the Democratic Party itself there is a movement to equality and then there's a movement to the status quo and that's what the big story is right now. We're going to be when the election comes. I don't know you know but that's that's again. That's a media phrasing of things in a way that the I mean when people only watch like CNN or Fox you can watch two different things and they're completely lately different like you're seeing a different world but she doesn't watch television anymore. CNN and Fox television and there are many and they're on feeds their on on feeds yeah but that's not all once go on the Internet you know lots of other stuff comes in and I think that's why you've got that demographic that says we're more more of socialists than our capitalist a certain openness that makes marks in a certain sense superfluous because people exchange ideas and they can come to their own conclusions lesions rather more..

"mordecai richler" Discussed on Unorthodox

"Congratulations Mark. I did it I got. I got billy Joel Song. This is Unorthodox University leading Jewish podcasts. I am Mark Oppenheimer joined as ever by two PO hosts. One is tablet deputy editor Stephanie Next Good Day Good Day to you and other boning in the mountain time zone is senior writer leave events as we say here in South Dakota Aloha. What are you wearing Lee out <music>. This is the thing I'm in bed in my Holiday Inn Express <hes> you know hotel and and I'm only wearing like I'm only slightly. We list dressed and they would be if I came to the studios. I like them. Marcus no aspect talked about your clothing several times in consecutive episodes on this show. Oh Yeah it's okay. It's okay for this. Week's episode Stephanie had a great sit down and interview with Jew of the week Liz Feldman the creator of the very hot Netflix show dead to me and our gentile of the week is a little bit of a chestnut. We taped it a few months ago for our conversion episode and then it didn't make it on just because that episode was jam packed with stories. About converts to Judaism and this guy's a former mainline Protestant who converted to Mormonism as an openly gay man. His name is Dennis Schleicher. His book is it's called is he nuts why a gay man would become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ and that's a pretty cool energy so hang on the designation mainline Protestant. It's very reaffirming. Irving gave me line just main line in normal there so few of them left. I mean the quote mainline. Protestant are they're. They're not really the main line of anything anymore but you know it's mainline within Judaism is listening to Unorthodox which you know we're on our four year anniversary today as we tape this. July thirtieth is not only the birthday of my good buddy seth but is also the four year anniversary of Unorthodox so happy birthday guys I will say that the traditional traditional gift for four years is fruit or flowers it was that right and then the modern gift is appliances. ooh. The way one. You know how like one is paper. Modern gift is now clocks. I don't know who's deciding. WHO's deciding this. That's what Google says. Algorithm we what is the four year gift again fruit fruit or flowers in the U._S. and linen or silk in the U._k.. I would like some linen yeah. I think you should do like a full linen. Suit could talk about Air Zilk. I would like an appliance. I would like an espresso maker. I want an instant but it's GonNa be worth four though that is so crazy. I remember that that first summer I think our episode two or three I was. I had to take the bus in from New Jersey from I was staying with my family on Long Beach Island before we had like big PODCASTS US money. That's right to take the bus and I couldn't do a remote. We didn't know about live hookups and whatnot or <hes>. I have trouble listening to the early episodes once in a while. I'll listen to ten seconds cringe. I didn't talk for the first year so I don't like listening to this. We all know and we all know why why we listening but we still get those e mails from new listeners. I went back to to be a complete and Stephanie. You've come such a long way. Also it's such a different world when we started four years ago. We were just like there's an election coming up. ha ha ha now. We're just like we are depressed. No one will ever hate Jews again. It's true. Oh Gosh but it's interesting. We've talked to a lot of people over four years and what is that like forty episodes a year times to guests. Do you have like a favorite guest moment. Some either of you Leo Stephanie. If you're thinking back on this show on four years there's would pop singer mind. I will say that like the best part of this show has been that I got to like forcefully befriend me. She came on the show. I made her be my friend and she came to my way at your wedding whether he visited her on the Minnesota North Dakota border. I know it's like if that's what it means. podcast it means you could be like. I WANNA be friends with this person and I will become friends with this person. I'm like I'm good yeah. I'll in so many magical moments to recount and honestly <hes> it's all about you guy. I I know your friend but as a nerdy boy who spent literally you know every waking moment between the ages ages of say eight to say fourteen watching monty python like obsessively to hear John cleese come on the show and be absolutely beside himself when I knew him he was the gentlest ever. GonNa live that down but you also got that great moment with David Duchovny where you told him about watching exiles in the Army David companies you had when he said Hi Steffan time also nerd it out on on freaks that Star Trek Guy that's right. I asked the question yet. I can't really think you know for me and this is not surprising given my extroverted nature. This won't surprise you you but the live shows like just just seeing people come together in community there and meet each other and recognize each other from the facebook group or said like Oh. I remember they read your letter on on the air like that's really special. I really like that sense that we're sort of like a schule without walls. We're an audio Schule or an audio audio tribe tabernacle in your ears the Mishcon there we go. It's really nice to have all these people. You've pint for early adulthood. You come to this drum and you realize what it is that we do here but we don't just mean. Asu Put up the show but also the J. crew listening like make this part of their lives the most rewarding feeling in the world even if we didn't have a private jet for the show. We're GonNa talk about the fundraiser. Don't tell them about the jet uh-huh Leo what's amazing is that it's waiting for you outside the Holiday Inn Express that you've found a runway big enough to accommodate are rather large private like you haven't forgotten your holiday polity and routes. That's I have some like travel related news. I think will be of particular interest to Leo. Okay private jet related private jet related. What were you in be doing with the private jet. I am taking the Unorthodox private jet to Israel in August. No way for Ben Cohen's first trip to Israel. Oh Oh my God. This is called Ben Right Ben Right Right. Is this just for pleasure or is he. Is he covering well some sort of sporting event. No you know no <hes> there's people he wants to meet that he's reported on and stuff and same with me but it's a vacation. I'll be unplugging Ben. I'll be in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem a few other places. He says going to be amazing. I'm actually really really the list of restaurants accommodations that I'm preparing is already like seven pages long. There's a place you have to call a number. Get in. I'll do it for you a guy do these attacks him. The Password Shlomi Nimrod and you say you what happens when an unorthodox goes to Tel Aviv is. I think there's a required meet up. There is there is I will be doing a meet up. I don't know when or where but yeah yeah I think I'll be there like August ninth through thirteenth so it'll be one of those days well known for that so if you guys want to be he part of my Tel Aviv meet up email us at unorthodox at tablet MAG DOT COM with the subject line Stephanie in Tel Aviv and one word or or face it's a Hashtag tag and we will put you on the lists to get some secret info of where to go and we should say that marks meet up and my meet up until Aviv really only been the build up to like the grant. You know there's a big enough for this. She will bring her recorder. We'll be sending her with zoom. There may be two of the week. It's kind of out of it. Leo Leo what's going on with you with any news from South Dakota in the life of Leibovitz by the way is a Mordecai richler novel waiting to be written the one thing that sort of baffled for me so I was walking into Laguardia which is at this point refugee camp and how it's coming in and out of it <hes> and there's like little I noticed like out of the corner of my eye this little roped off area with astroturf and it's like teeny tiny size of like you know someone's desk and it has a little fence around it and then a sign that says pets relief area and I felt like whoever put this in here really doesn't doesn't know dogs. You're like Hey Jerry man. What are we going to do about all the dogs if need relief like I don't think they will go unless they have their own special designated area with astroturf astroturf guardia like the whole big now. I've seen the pet relief areas at rest stops on the Jersey turnpike. There's now an indoor one at Laguardia Airport. Yeah for all of the therapy dogs acupuncture dogs pleasure dogs. Whatever that's like the line to the women's or miss too long you can also a dog. What isn't a barrier. You know what's equally absurd and this was my morning. Is that the new haven train station and this also just tells you where one's mind goes when you're entering your five of hosting a Jewish podcast. which is you start seeing everything through the Lens of Ju- nodded you new podcast worthy not podcasts worthy so I haven't been uneven train station? I'm parking fortunately at five seventeen A._M.. There's a lot of parking sort of my me and this other dude and we both have the whole parking lot to choose from and we sort of nod and we both go off in different directions of the parking lot. I go east side. He goes west side and I parked my little Prius and he's in a pickup truck and I noticed that he's backed into his spot now. There's some listeners out there who are GonNa know exactly what I'm saying but when I see someone back into a parking spot first of all I'm just going to say it. It seems to me I don't think Jews back into parking spots and I'm going to do some some deep research on this in the coming weeks. I'm going to defend it. There's there are scholarly articles that have been written or needs to be written on this but in my experience leaving aside the Ju- nodded you question and there's a kind of McKee's Mo to people who back into parking spots like they want to show you how strong their driving skills are and the other piece of it and I've actually asked some people there have been times times when I've said to people in two or three times over twenty years like hey why do you back into a parking spot and the answer they give is because you can take off faster like they wanna be able to appeal allowed the parking spot when they get back to it and I just to me like I don't know what to say. I'm not fully. I don't have a fully formed theory on this yet but all I know is nobody nobody. I'm related to would ever back into this like I feel like. It should go to your analysts. I think first of all for all your like I don't essential is I don't say Jews I do this. You are the one who is like that's when he comes across to a centralized tupperware. Ah is really really funny for all this like we're so welcoming but if you do this you're not one of your still well actually speaks more to your like ideas of masculinity and then how you layer that over onto like. Judy Jewish men almost I like because like I mean how he backs into every parking space you really. He's in a major and and it's just easier to get out. You don't need to peel out necessarily but like it but it's harder to get in. It's six of one half dozen the other you're pulling your backing in and driving arriving out. If you want to do this here's the explanation Howard Budnick and myself. Both descendants from Holocaust survivors always have this notion of I've been escape five get in but you know when does footsteps the does I'm not. I'm not allowing them not allowing the Holocaust either reasoning for this for most things it is a good argument for most things it is the reason but I actually think how we will get the best parking spot no matter like where we are like. You know like a block away isn't good enough. We will go right to the place and find the spinal circle the block twenty times to get twenty times because we'll find it after one but but I think the backing and it's funny because I hate backing out of parking spots because you're like it's coming. You can't see it. It's a little bit to them. What's the death the differences other cars as I think back I mean I don't drive anymore so <hes> I did. I was like a very good parallel Parker. That's what I was raised with. I am a good parallel parker like I don't have any insecurity security about my driving skills or my parking sales. I'm sure you're just like there's no part of me. That's like I got a zoom out. When I leave. I gotTA GO FRONT END. I it strikes me as kind of its. It's swagger if you only noticed because the guy had a pickup truck and if you had I think really tall to know he was short and broad. He was on his guys..

"They're the mud. The floors are muddy. They're tracking in mud with just after they cleaned them exactly so I know what you're doing here you're doing. You're doing one of these baseball players trying it. WHO's trying to get the most quotable call in the world? You're still you're trying to think of stuff. I like it. I like it. I like not not looking for votes at all. Nobody is quoting me jam something just something I'm saying off the top of the show. I know but that's why like you're doing it. Something's going to grab you know something's GonNa grap right. Mayor I mean easy thing is a couple of washed up radio guys who got fired or now doing a podcast right. We're used hymns of restructuring for God's Sakes. Get it right victims terms of restrictions. There's another way to say it but that's boring so not now the way you've said it I like it. You know the floors. The floors were muddy. They got a bunch of mud dragged on the floors in the just when they cleaned it up. We're back on air. That's at that is some serious metaphor analysis right that it's like a post game show on my metaphors and analogies. I like well some of the I don't know we only it's always a lively topic Steve. The best calls some of the best calls but I just think they're all I mean I. I thought about it for walks. I did hockey play by play for a while and I said to myself. Do I want to be just another play by play announcer who goes he shoots. He scores a goal goes in thought for a long time about it different things one of the things I was sort of dabbling in and I never got around to doing it or wanted to but I just basically said in just throw that at their well just really deep and gravelly and there's Jerome Jerome down the left wing. He winds earn not bad not bad something different. I mean I I never went to it because I didn't think it was that good for starters but I just wanted to do something different than he scores Yawn. Well my one of my favorites he dents to what is it. He dense the twine yep. That's the twenty didn't really like light in the Light Steve or whatever they say the lamp lighting the lamp yeah. I don't mind that one but those are always just descriptors right. They're not they're not play by play guys would yell at the moment of a goal well. The best is that what's the guy's name generate in Buffalo. Stay Rick Jenrette still the no mayday mayday mayday and all the other stuff you know Pat Lafontaine on. I think it was around the Christmas season. Lafontaine gets big goal and he says starts zing in the middle of the goal call la La la La la La la on oh good yeah see I love that Shit. I love that Shit so I love the baseball wants to that's up up up up in a way up in a way and goodbye Mr spalding no yes. I love that member when spalding was made all the balls Rawlings now by Mr Rawlings wouldn't work in a way I think is Jerry Howarth right. I don't know I don't know who it is. It's Buck Martinez is always trying. I could see this year. He's tried a new one that he's trying to calling when they go to hit. A home raised on get up ball. Get up ball. Get up all I don't know I don't I'm not open your window Mrs Brown this one's coming home. Never heard of that. I love that one. I'd like to hear this straight at abuse like you get a really homer. Play by play guy you know and I think John Sterling of the New York Yankees would be exhibit a he. Would you know he has the worst ones. There's another A._A._A.. Bomb for its Robbie Canot. Don't you know oh well there. If you're if you'RE GONNA be so homer Roush. Let's start getting abusive to the opposing Pitcher just gave up the Yankee home run. All that was Outta here. You are piece a shit there on the mound amount exactly exactly he fucking blew that puck by you back to the minors for you. Yeah you mentioned the project right. You call it the project now so there's another there's a phrase coined or starting a few you'll get project and <hes> I reminded of being in grade. Eleven about a project that we had to do was sort of like half of your English mark. We had to come up with a big massive book report on the apprenticeship of duddy Kravitz was Canadian book written by Mordecai Richler who is a great author made into a movie. I think is well probably yeah. That's right it was with I know who I know who you're talking to. It looks like Neve Campbell but it isn't Neve Campbell no and the guy I forget who played the parts but what's Gordon Pinson for sure if it was a Canadian movie. It's gotTa be Gordon Yeah. That's true this project that we had to. I never did it. It was like I was sweating bullets. I never never got any of us. You know we're supposed to be working on this thing for like six weeks and it came in on this Monday coming up is gyms gyms turn to get up and give his big spiel on on the apprenticeship with Daddy Kravitz and then it came time for that and the teacher said Okay Jim. You're on. It's the I don't. I don't have it done and she was like Whoa. WHOA WHOA WHOA? What do you mean you don't have it done? We've been working on this thing. Since the fall yeah I just didn't get around to doing it okay and so a siren goes off calls my dad. He's got to come in and she hands as she hated me this. This is the one st who tried to get tried to fail me to go to summer school. Oh do you remember that story I do and and I said that I couldn't feel because I we got the exam ahead of time cheat on the exam. That's possible that I couldn't tell them why course and anyway phoned her and she said I'm sorry I made an addition was he doesn't have to go to summer school this evil teacher well. I'm confused though like that that seems harsh to call in the parents because he didn't do one assignment we have but it was big big you know and then she turned that into you know your attitude is terrible and this is going to get in trouble. I need to talk to your parents or your never that part. I believe okay that that's hard to believe. That's hardly so my dad hated like you. My Dad that couldn't stand having to go into school saying the teachers should be able to handle this right there yeah. This shit's going to happen their kids but said okay. I gotta go in so the two of us are sitting there her and she wants to she gives us big presentation of Mr Jerome Dishes that and this is that in your son visit isn't that my dad has the assignment and he rolls it up and she's looking at him waiting for the big. Oh my God we're going to I actually have his hands cut off tonight. Because of this so thank you very much up. That's what she sort of waiting for something like that and my balls up the rolls up the assignment and he said look here's what you should do. He was pissed that he had to be there for for this stupid thing. Especially after I heard it was their roles it up and says here's what you should do next and he turns around and just hammers me in the head the assignment he's just do that is just paper well. That's all you should do just do that next time black and she was she was all well. Oh my God guys abusing it son although it'd be great though the teaching of that you know that that punitive measure at her disposal all of a sudden corporal punishment returns turns to the fray thanks to dad that's right. It worked back in those days. You know work when when less Gorman grabbed me by the ear Steve when I was at Saint Jo's we hooked his index finger into my year and twisted my year. You know you're saying I told you not to talk well. I'm talking. You know that worked. It's interesting now. How it's different right like I I know some teachers and <hes> we're in out a stage where inmates are running the asylum yes you have you have problems? Problems with a child as a teacher you'd like to be able to call the parents and say Kay here's what's happening and in so many cases now the parent is oblivious to it because the kids big hockey star or something like that or whatever but you're the parent will the parent won't acknowledge the problem so the teachers in left to their own devices and gets to a stage now and by the way the parents can sometimes get belligerent about it and give teachers the gears as though little johnny can't do anything getting wrong and so the teachers like holy cow W t.f so what are they left to do except they did show these people through the system in there. There's there's kids graduating from high school that have no business have not earned the right to graduate graduate from high school but they just want these kids out of their hair and they will family out of their hair and that's not good for the kid at all not at all. Excuse me not at all but what happened. The first big change was that that you weren't allowed to keep a kid back a grade or what we call failed. If you've you've failed yet to stay back to repeat great seven. They stopped that which was when I when I first heard about that as well that's ridiculous curious you know you can't you can't leave the so the kid didn't accomplish that so you're gonNA move ahead anyway. I mean you're setting the kid up for for a killer personal experience in high school you know and then what happens. Steve is in my day okay. When you got you got you know we got the strap when I was in elementary school or a little cuff in the back of the head or the teacher Hook and his finger in your ear or whatever I never steve I would never ever go home and say dad you need to you need to know something? You know. The teacher did this today regular. If I did that might cause. I remember doing it remember. I did it with my brother Paul. We came home late my brother smack in the mouth because I was lifting him off mode and I'll get <music> gas my dad. My Dad was say what happened and I said well. We're related. Don't be late again. I see okay hang on debt. Maybe you told me Paul every he he did. And then my dad goes. How do you hit you whammo like that and he snacks feeding the side of the head or was it like that whack then he cuts my brother? You know that that Shit work back in the day you know but but you would never go I would never go home and tell my dad that I got in trouble from.

"mordecai richler" Discussed on The Big Story

"Fights over religion are not exactly new in Quebec the province has a long history of them. In fact, and there's one fight brewing right now that has implications. Well beyond the provincial border and could spark outrage around the world. Depending on who you ask the issue at stake in Quebec right now has either absolutely no need for any legislation at all. Or is an absolutely critical part of the province's democracy. So small stakes right Quebec's majority. Provincial government plans to adopt Bill twenty one before the national assembly breaks for holiday in mid June. If it passes the Bill would ban public workers in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols. He can imagine how messy that would get. So why is this Bill necessary? What problem would it solve how much public support? Does. It have how do it supporters defended against criticism that it will unfairly target Muslims, and particular, and why is this an international mess. Just waiting to happen. Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Michael Cohen is a columnist and broadcaster and a recent graduate master's program in divinity at Trinity College. His stink tion with distinguished visiting. Shen? I I'm even special within the special. Well, we wanted to talk to you because this is a a religious matter. And because you've written you've written about it a couple of times, can you briefly just start by explaining what Bill Twenty-one in Quebec claims to do with a very well put that question when he claims to do what it's intended to achieve very different the things, but extensively I missed to remove all obviously, religious identification from public administration. So if you work for the state for the government, and that includes all sorts of things and teaches to police officers, and so on a many jobs in Quebec, you won't be allowed to wear things such as and he has become very pertinent Islamic headcovering. If you're a woman, perhaps a very obvious crucify. Fix. If you're a Christian yarmulkes skull Cobb, if you're Jewish and this would include a turban if you're a Sikh. Won't apply to people already in the service bought? It was brought in by a Quebec government that is populous to large degree on one with a safe majority and still have the majority and as I wrote him mcclain's. They certainly have the right to do this. Whether they they have the responsibility to act in such a way, but what is really aimed at quite obviously is Muslim women very few Jewish people where yarmulke some do modern orthodox Jews pretty wouldn't be in the public services much if you wear a crucifix. Well, it's generally underneath share and tuck it in. Yeah. And it's not required. There's no Christian nomination that requires that the Quebec was was clinical. It was a clerical state as was island as well. As to send incense Spain for the longest time, and all of these countries or provinces have reacted to that. And the related secularism. It's not particularly contemporary in Germany in the nineteenth century had what was called the call to come for whether the the Prussian state, which was Protestant. But just secular. Bismarckian wanted to defeat the power of the Catholic church in the south, and you have elements of that in what's going on now. So what happened in Quebec is that the Catholic church has really been expunged from power and on the prince has become fairly prosperous, partly as a result. But it's just I it's a coincidence. But after Catholicism came the the next most visible religion, which was the slim, and you have to throw into this is I'm a phobia, and I think the term is overused. It's one thing to to be very very angry about the what ISIS does and about the extremism that is within Islam, but that's a tiny minority of Muslim people. A most of the victims of that sort of craziness are the Muslims. What is the reasoning behind this from the government's point of view? What argument are they making about why this should happen? Just in state. They say there has to be a tangible division separation between church and state, and I think most Canadians would agree with that. We don't have that in our constitution, the Americans, actually, do we don't but affectively. We do have it. We don't have an established church like in England. And I think there are many people in Quebec because the left two largest into supported this, by the way, I think who would say, yes, we must have that. But another part of it is simply all of the polls of the ball pretty much supposedly being taken of showing. There is more anti-muslim feeling in Quebec than other parts of Canada. Yeah. Quebec is always been fairly raw in those terms. Its relationship with his Jewish minority. Montreal in particular has always been being not a troubled one. But a more vibrant, one, I suppose in some ways if you think of Linda Cohen and Mordecai Richler on on some, but at the same time there are issues there. So that there is the if you let positive church and state separation and the negative which is we don't like these people they have to completely assimilate with suspicious of so both of those elements are involved. What does it look like when it takes effect on the ground who will be impacted? The most was good question. We don't really know. We've already had some young women. Who are the he job who teaches English? They'll resign. They won't teach anymore. The protests all taking place. Teachers unions are very angry. I suspect as with the New Zealand symbolic gesture you would have some non Muslim women when wearing the job as a protest. But here's the problem. It will marginalize people who want to be part of mainstream society. I mean, this was like a birthday present to the radicals though. So because the Muslim radical position it all over the world, not just in case, I know Europe. Well, what they say to to almost as you will never fit in you part of world is lab, you're not part of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, so in a never never think you are now mostly Muslims. So that's not true. I am. You know, I I'm British. I'm french. I'm Jim and what to say to someone you cannot wear the job. Yeah. The radicals. And I've already read some of the propaganda. You see we told you. So they don't like you. They don't want you can only fit in. If you if you lose your slam and and Quebec has. They've said they're trying to defeat radicalism. They've played into his hands are outwardly visible religious symbols. Actually, a problem in any way that the government needs to address do we know of any sort of reasoning behind things that are resulting from this that the government should could could at least extensively be claiming to be fixing with this. I think the the book or the the full covering, which is very it's very isolated. There were very few people who actually have that. I think that is problematic. If you can't really see the person, you're speaking to this body language involved in a court of law, for example, or driving a car, but that's a tiny fringe, and that can be an and they're up most people, I know in the humidity have some issues with that too. But the hijab which is far more common, which you see quite a bit icon think of any problem. I mean, it's a problem for those people who regard it as a problem there. There have been experiments undertaken where people have put on a yarmulke a Jewish prayer cuff. Garing and won't through various areas to find out what the reaction is. Right. And it's not a problem for the person who's wearing it and phenomenal decent people. But the anti Semite for the big. It's a problem. There aren't many of those. I don't see this as being problematic. But I see on the in Toronto all the time young Muslim girls, we're gonna hit job and young girls. Have also races not wearing it. Just locking about being kids together just being normal and Canadian and we haven't seen it before. It's a new generation, but that's been said over and over again that was said when when ours Catholics came that was said when when Jews came the there's always a group who will react badly to a newcomer, but I don't see it as being offensive. I don't see how a teacher wearing a hit job is less able to do her job than a teacher not wearing when it comes to the wearing of the turban, and we dealt with this kind of long ago, you know, when seeks will prepare to late in their lives in huge numbers for the empire, the coming wealth in the second World War. And of course, the first World War people didn't. So I don't have. That you know, the head gear. And so if a Sikh qualms to be a call carry a sidearm and say, I'm gonna enforce law and order, and we said, well, you can't do it. Because of what you're wearing on. You know, we will most sensible than that. So all of these things can be accommodated. But there's some people who don't want to accommodate what has the reaction being among Muslims in Quebec and even non Muslims in Quebec. Who who don't support this most Muslims, it's been very negative. I think this fear and confusion. They're not sure what's going to happen. When it's enforced amongst non Muslims have to say, there's quite a bit of support for it. And not just on the right? The the the left part left wing parties again because secularism the the the French-Canadian left. I I don't think it's kept up with the times to a certain extent because it's still really is rooted in in secularization, and that doesn't necessarily mean social progress the Christian righties is goodness knows if his with the Christian right is a problem. But the faith in itself shouldn't be a problem for the left. So. They're very much pint it in that way. And the government is still popular. There's a significant minority of people from the various religious communities ambience who are opposed to this. But they're going to be pushed if they're gonna win this one. What about the argument that this is a feminist act? I've heard that argument I've heard it too. But I don't think it's for a patriarchal society to tell women what is feminism. And I it's I get very tired of those on the left would say, we we mustn't talk about other people's cultures. Because no if I if we do widows being burnt with ended husbands in India. I whatever the motives, no, this is not right. When it comes to female, genital mutilation. I mean, yes, we have to take a position on that. I mean that it's just the way it should be. But this is not the full covering of a body. This is something which is often actually quite attractive it it's it's a scarf worn around the head. And again, what does it come from? If it's a father saying. Or a husband saying to a woman you have to then obviously, that's a feminist equation. If it's a woman saying, I want to then that's also feminist equation, and it's supposedly one so we have to be very careful when we played that card. Can you explain for me a little bit how you approach issues like this as both a reporter and columnist on one side who has to analyze it. But also as a student of divinity who knows who knows there's a lot to unpack here. What I'm not a reporter? I wouldn't call myself a report within I write calms and within those columns. I will give a background, right? When I wrote a piece for Maclean's about this oversight. Explain what it was. And then I give my opinion. I think if we're reasonable. We can unpack a lot of things and the supplies. I probably sound very very old. And why coming we'll just sit down together in the end be indecent about. Okay. That's what we try to do. But I think reason ability if we really also selves continue after thirty two years of marriage. He's a tip for you. Whenever you have an argument with your spouse. Why am I really annoyed about? And do they actually have a point and often Mike, obviously, I'm always in the right? But I think about empathize with a Muslim woman who an often it's this generation who want to wear their job. And you know, I started going to the Middle East, but in nine hundred seventy nine, and I hardly I in the in Palestine Israel Palestine how ever saw most women wearing a hidden. That's changed. Now younger women often. Feel it empowers them that. Why are they doing this? If I am offended. Why is that reasonable to be offended by that is it actually damaging in any way on my frightened of something? If so why is this me rather than them, especially as people age society is changing, I think, look, I don't know. Digress. Too much special into this subject with the whole Jordan Peterson hysteria. A lot of that if you'll by people who are frightened because things are changing. We'll yes, they are. And they've always been so, and I'm sure my parents couldn't. Aleve. This'll music. I was listening to just as I'm an eye cliche. I say the same thing to my kids that's music, but most of this is shouldn't be in any way threatening. And I understand that within Islam some terrible things have been done in the name of Islam. But that is not the Muslim faith, and you spent any time the diversity of it, depending where you go with a majority. It's not very different from Christianity. Some people religious people are not some people use it to hurt others. Most people don't have it. We shouldn't be frightened of if this goes into effect in June. How the heck do they enforce it? It's another good question. I well contracts can simply be withdrawn if a if a teacher in the school is wearing a hit job and the other teachers the other members of staff and the students all support her. Yeah. What happens then? And I I would predict that will happen. I think there'll be a test case where the teachers would always say we're standing in solidarity. The other then called in is again too. A physical removal isn't going to be an arrest. I mean, this could be extremely bad until play the world over. Of course, there will be challenges the rest of Canada, including the prime minister's con damn this where we're not in line with it. Now, there's also the context of separatism, and if it seems to be Canada or even the world ganging up on Quebec that's going to play into the hands of those who who are pushing the separatist agenda, which it everything has that much supported the of the state. But I don't know. I it it'll be very interesting. But that sounds to indifferent. I think it could be very dangerous. So if a bunch of the support for this in Quebec is actually coming from the secular left and the progressives. Who is then in opposition to it will that some of the left, and it's really supported by populace. And most people don't have a particular view in politics. So thing, isn't it. Right. Yeah. Going with their lives. But, but there are many elements of the left who differ you. There's no homogeneous left. There are divisions between French and English. Speaking. But not that deep on this issue. I think it'll be unions the the union, but again, not over them. I don't know. I don't know. How many what worries me is that the Muslim community will simply give up and say, well, it's not worth the fight. Withdrawal will become more insular. Well, set up more of our in schools, and you can teach wearing whatever you want. They'll be private schools and will create an alternative society, although leave and wouldn't be the first time people left Quebec in huge numbers before one used to be full of people leaving control and so on. So that could be the case as well Muslim kids on their relationship with the police, how will that be affected when we've learned goodness say over the years that I mean if kids from minority backgrounds can see the police from that background it is going to sometimes that can cause problems. But generally, it's a better thing. So they're they're all sorts of pro. You know, the really annoyed me about this. It was solving a problem that didn't exist. Yeah. This is simply not an issue. Unemployment is an issue terrorism is is an issue raises. Mm-hmm. Isn't it? I mean, there all still some issues clean drinking water. This isn't an issue. People wouldn't say well here is wonderful to live in Quebec. But if only they went people teaching in schools with each apps, it's it just it isn't the case, and it's going to take effect. And then it's going to become more of an issue. Just because we're going to be fighting over. It'll get a lot of his ability. They'll be international coverage of this to you. You know, France has tried something right? If an issue in France, you having a huge number of people from a Muslim background or the majority of Muslims in front say the secular on the mini from North Africa. Which of course, what was colonized by the French. But it's a different issue in front of the Woodhead of very very strident separation of church and state and Quebec is FRANZ. I mean, there may be some similarity in the hedge, but has a completely different history. The history is totally different from sixteen Ninety-one woods. So there's no reason why they should say what they call them. What is being done there? I can tell you that the the Brit. I mean, I I've lived in Canada for thirty two years, but the British experience, you know, the the. Home secretary in Britain is a Muslim the mayor of London is a Muslim. I it. It just isn't seen to be an issue that there are problems with some well can cost Muslim communities in the north of England in particular. But this is not the way to move forward. I think I can say this. Find out if I'm arresting that somebody go to Britain. But I I once had a meeting was arranged through a friend who's a member of parliament with the members of the security services in Britain. And what really amazed me was the number of young women. I saw with H apps. And there's sort of all Oxford and Cambridge graduates who had a certain faith detested terrorism, and and fundamentalism and they had the language skills into standing if you cut yourself off from a community completely. They're not going to say, oh, we'll have to assimilate they'll be angry their services will no longer be able to be used and it will cause division. This is I I don't want to overstep here. This is potentially very very dangerous. Thanks bye. Michael Kara columnist broadcaster. One of the best people in candidate talk religion with that was the big story for more from us.

Quebec to ban public employees from wearing religious symbols

"Fights over religion are not exactly new in Quebec the province has a long history of them. In fact, and there's one fight brewing right now that has implications. Well beyond the provincial border and could spark outrage around the world. Depending on who you ask the issue at stake in Quebec right now has either absolutely no need for any legislation at all. Or is an absolutely critical part of the province's democracy. So small stakes right Quebec's majority. Provincial government plans to adopt Bill twenty one before the national assembly breaks for holiday in mid June. If it passes the Bill would ban public workers in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols. He can imagine how messy that would get. So why is this Bill necessary? What problem would it solve how much public support? Does. It have how do it supporters defended against criticism that it will unfairly target Muslims, and particular, and why is this an international mess. Just waiting to happen. Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Michael Cohen is a columnist and broadcaster and a recent graduate master's program in divinity at Trinity College. His stink tion with distinguished visiting. Shen? I I'm even special within the special. Well, we wanted to talk to you because this is a a religious matter. And because you've written you've written about it a couple of times, can you briefly just start by explaining what Bill Twenty-one in Quebec claims to do with a very well put that question when he claims to do what it's intended to achieve very different the things, but extensively I missed to remove all obviously, religious identification from public administration. So if you work for the state for the government, and that includes all sorts of things and teaches to police officers, and so on a many jobs in Quebec, you won't be allowed to wear things such as and he has become very pertinent Islamic headcovering. If you're a woman, perhaps a very obvious crucify. Fix. If you're a Christian yarmulkes skull Cobb, if you're Jewish and this would include a turban if you're a Sikh. Won't apply to people already in the service bought? It was brought in by a Quebec government that is populous to large degree on one with a safe majority and still have the majority and as I wrote him mcclain's. They certainly have the right to do this.

I think I read that somewhere. It seems like a lot of small town. Right. Yeah. And they're all sort of stuck on top of each other moral. Hell, yeah. That's true. That's true. That is it is it is real shuttle as you said. Yeah. The one that I always was very interested. In was was the one in Montreal in reading Mordecai Richler a big fan in the way that sort of function throughout the years for good and for bad, and I think it left the most important culinary imprint Jewish culinary imprint on North America, the bagel there is spectacular and superior to anything. And and there was kind of interesting infrastructure moistens steak house, and Schwartz's and all these things I mean, they exist, obviously, we have cats and stuff like that. But there was a feeling that they were sort of imprinted on this part of play of the plateau, which is now this incredibly hipster area to me. That's the most interesting sort of Jewish community. I've encountered in North America. C your your team Montreal bagel to Montreal bagel person. I just ringing Montreal and got in deep trouble during the reading I was asked the question of you know, Fairmont or Saint via tour. Wow. And I said for month by a hair, you know, and this immediately upset, you know, more than half of the audience that was that was a bad question, though. Because you were going to get in trouble. No matter what I think there was more of a tour presence that that day. And I I can't I usually judge the winds pretty well. But I miss this upper -tunities connect with can you explain the veto tight versus the Fairmont type. I really to me. It's just you know, what makes them so great. Both of them is just the the size of the bagel. The fact that it's not this giant doughy? You know that it's more like a hockey puck the use of Honey water. I think people like the fact that well, I in in favor of safety drive say that have a full cafe where you can. So you buy the bagel firm on you have to get your own locks, and that's a whole thing. Whereas there there's a cafe they slap it on you what I would like is for there to sturgeon place nearby. So that you can combine that bagel with a sturgeon slice of sturgeon. And that one of those bagels, I think would be. And I it's a better vehicle. It's so much smaller with that's it. No bigger should be this largest should.
