Nontraditional Fatherhood & Family | Trystan Reese
"That was a very strange child. I mean you know mom dad super supportive. Both my parents grew up extremely poor so my dad is the son of a coal miner. He's one of thirteen brothers and sisters. From how yeah. Which is a Appalachian Canadian Appalachian? Basically yeah and then. My mom is the daughter of a single mom. Who's a nurse? A Mum's dad died when she was very young. So now I'm curious. Has you go from Newfoundland to the desert in California? Yeah I mean. He decided as a kid looking around. You know in a very very podunk. Backwater place. Healthcare was a huge concern. And they just didn't have it and without many brothers and sisters you can imagine money was a huge issue. Healthcare was a huge issue in. My Dad actually had a very bad eyesight and no one really knew until he was a little bit older end. An aunt did like the whatever? The nineteen fifties version of crowdfunding. Is She like? Oh it's even nineteen forties on. Gosh where she like all the relatives to pitch in to to get my dad glasses and once he got glasses they realized he was extraordinarily bright and since he could see And he did some exercise in like fifth grade asked. What did you want to be when you grow up? And he wanted to be doctor and so he just decided that each tend to be a doctor and he put himself through medical school though. Koetter Yup and he met my mom. Undergrad and Montreal. He got into medical school in one day he was like well. Jan going to medical school. We show the break up or get married which we do and mom getting married so and so. That's very romantic. Way That my love story. I think my mother might have even had to break up with her her other boy time because I think in the fifties in sick a little bit like you just casually saw a couple of people and you know it wasn't a wasn't quite as official as it can be today but yeah so that's that's how they met and then medical school and then went to Vancouver. They had me and decided they were sick of the rain and moved to California. Not knowing that they're to a very conservative You know very sort of Military idea sort of area. Yeah was was that they`re. They're bent their belief system. They're not at all no no no. I mean they're very Canadian so like it's they're not like ridiculous. Not Hippies you know. They're not leftists. They're very pragmatic progressive like in Canada. It's like you just do your thing. You don't judge other people you don't stop them from doing it. And so they're very accepting in that sort of pragmatic way although they've taken in some extreme left turns Raising me and my sisters so sisters. How many to one younger one older. Yeah so you growing up in in this town in radically different value system and you're also starting to serve. I mean when you're really young do you have a sense of of gender at all or is it even anything you think about? I mean I don't remember feeling like there was something going on with my gender as a kid and I know that that's like It's like an inconvenient experience because we've sort of taught mainstream Americans that what is true about transgender people that were born in the wrong body. We knew it from the second we were sentient and our whole lives since then has been a fight to get our bodies rights and then we're cured and we can just keep moving on and I think that that narrative is true for some Trans People. Sure Service pretty well so far but I think now you know we're out of place where there's a little bit more room for different stories and my story is different like I. Just don't ever remember thinking about gender as a kid and because I had these you know pretty open parents. I was never forced into any particular box so there wasn't much to rebel against. Maybe if my mom had put me in the you know kids beauty pageants circuit at age five. Yeah maybe I would have had an early memory of being like. Oh this is terrible. I don't WanNa wear a Tiara but I don't you know I had. I had skinned knees. I was and I climb trees and chase chase my sisters around and this is normal childhood things I guess. Yeah I mean it's interesting that in the context of on one hand your parents like kind of like whatever and but then also living in a town which is sort of like a very socially conservative. And you didn't feel anything surly any any me to express it in the identities or anything youngest. It's just across the board even the town. I mean there were so many other ways in which I was different from my classmates you know I was an obsessive reader. I mean my mom still jokes that I would have a book in every room of the House of like the bathroom book the Kitchen Book. I mean we really my mom. I remember had to one day. Say Okay. I'm putting my foot down. You cannot be reading while we're having family dinner like put put the book down talk to us and then go back to your stories and so that was very strange in my school like it was very weird that I read in school. Those who burned up you know like word games and puzzles and then I was really into theater and plays and reading plays and learning musicals and I was just like so fucking weird in so many ways that it was like kind of my gender was the least of the worries. I was just of you know it was just a very different type of child than all the other children around me and so you know that really drove me to doing from a very young age doing theater. I mean when I was nine I knew that I loved musicals. Cut Bless my mother. She didn't know anything about music but watching me. Really start to like them age. Five six seven you know. I saw Annie the movie or something and from the eighties movie and I just loved it and so she would just go out of her way to you. Know drive US down to L. A. And the pantages theatre and cats. The musical. See you know Les Miz. He missed like she's just like worked so hard. She didn't have a parent really. Her mother worked so hard and and she idealized us her mother the single mom. Who is the nurse? Who was the only woman in their town who drove a car and would drive to work before the kids were up would come home after they were already in bed and then stay up late doing the laundry cooking the food. You know checking their homework only to get up and go to work the next day so she just thought she wanted to do the things that she know that her knew that her mother wished that she could have done and just go above and beyond to give us a childhood and to support all of our dreams and the ways that she just didn't really get not because her mom didn't water to But just because she couldn't practically swing it. Yeah so it sounds like feodor really became a place where you start to find a sense of acceptance and belonging just because that was a passion of yours. It's interesting to hear that I mean I'm thinking about to like my high school experience and they're always the groups you know like they're the distance that in this and that based largely on interest or or activities and stuff like that. I didn't see that maybe that maybe sort of like theater was a refuge for kids who felt like they didn't fit into sort of like other parts of the general community. Because that wasn't my group. I I don't really know but maybe is it has. Has it been your experience because I know you then went on like stayed really involvement in theory community that that is kind of a place that serves not just a sense of belonging but also refuse to a certain extent? I mean no question I think any any sort of misfit kid who had the least bit of creative talent and even if they didn't they did the lights you know it really did become the refuge and I think there is something really powerful about you know. Theater really means embodying different stories. In which means you're open a different stories and I think that does sort of set set set the stage so to speak for it being a community of of kids who just don't fit in other in other places so yeah it was really is really important to me both in school but especially outside of school doing community theatre and then going on to do professional theater. It was the place. Ri- was seen and accepted. I also got to play all these parts and I played the artful dodger got to do and as a kid in a small town. It's like there's already a shortage of male actors and so I just once I cut my hair just got to do all those parts which was another place where I could just sort of explorer masculinity and and have it be super-safe an accepted. I found an old review of me as artful dodger age like fourteen or fifteen and I think they even said like those who do not know. This actor is not male. You know we'll be. We'll we'll never. We'll those who do not know. This actor is not male will never be the wiser or something and so they basically complimented me on my passability at age fourteen. Which again is like major foreshadowing but Yeah
Where's Canada's worst housing crisis?
"Wrote on P. is rental market not the type of thing You think about all that often Being out here in Toronto whether you're Vancouver Montreal but it's a It's a a pretty wild place I would say so. Tell me about even just one of the typical kind of stories. You hear from renters right so I've heard quite a bit from families out in Pi and they've been having a ton of trouble for years now. it's a really tight rental market not a lot of spaces particularly larger spaces. If you need three bedrooms. Let's say and they they really just can't find very much at all So UC on facebook all the time families pleading for any sort of tips on vacant units. They find themselves weeks away from Homelessness Day call apartment buildings month after month looking for something and invariably they hear that there's just nothing available. Can he give me some context Just in terms of how tough is it there. In terms of vacancy rate and and how difficult it is to get into these places to have numbers. Yeah absolutely so. If view all the way back to two thousand thirteen the apartment vacancy rate was about seven percent. That's pretty high. It's you know the type of rate where if you need you to place your there's GonNa be some options for you fast. Forward five years to two thousand eighteen zero point three percent so like nothing pretty much nothing yes and The there was literally nothing for three bedroom. Pi's at small enough place that you can count the vacant units quickly so circa twenty eighteen gene Given all the apartments that they have that means they're eighteen available apartments on the whole island so things improved a little bit in two thousand nineteen up to one point two percent vacancy but still the lowest on a provincial basis. It's still a really tight market. There's not a lot available. I mean the thing that really really grabbed me about this is that those are numbers worse than or even maybe now on par with you know the numbers we hear out of Toronto and Vancouver where these are the biggest biggest housing crisis in Canada. And how do people react. I mean you're based in Toronto when you put together a piece explained that no actually. The worst housing crisis in Canada is out east in Cranston Rhode Island. I think it's mostly surprise. You know when when you're based out in these cities you you tend to think you know this is where everyone wants to live in Candida. Therefore there's a ton of competition but in fact I mean there's there's a lot that's going on beneath the surface in. Pi Driving this when people hear about it from year here. We just think it's a place where you go on vacation or something but you know there's a lot of people living and working there and it's it's really tough and people they don't don't realize it mostly what are those underlying things that are driving The scarcity of rental units one big thing is population growth Pi. Okay I has grown a tremendous amount over the past say four or five years on top of that. There's just not been a lot of apartments built. I mean Pe- I compared with say here in Toronto where we're sitting Real estate market is You know prices are a little more modest. Let's say so you know years ago you'd have a lot of options for detached housing under one hundred and fifty thousand dollars Yes so you know developers is there there. They weren't really building apartment. Because you know someone with a middle class. Income Housing was pretty affordable for for ownership right. So that makes sense but then you get years. I'm not really building apartments. An influx of a ton of people and home prices have gone up quite a bit you know for a detached housing. Typical detached housing went up forty percent over over the past year. So now what used to be. Affordable isn't for a lot of people they need to rent and they haven't been building rentals so start with the first problem And I guess it's a really good problem for a place like P I have. Where did the growth in population come from right so The previous liberal government. They're made population growth with a key part of their economic plan. And really. That's that's a good thing right. You know when you're looking at any of the Atlantic provinces. They're really old. They need to get younger. They I need people. In a place like newfoundland their populations decreasing They desperately need people pe- I saw this and they said we got a ramp up these numbers so they started bringing in a lot of people that are entrepreneurship programs to bring in people from outside of Canada the trying to lure native islanders back to Pi. He is well so you know the numbers sound almost kind of funny over the past four years. Pi's population has increased by thirteen. Eighteen thousand. So that's just a fraction of what you would get in a given year and say the GTE shortly but thirteen thousand. That's nine percent increase over four years. That's nearly double the national rate of growth the highest growth of of any province over that spin so thirteen thousand is a big deal on an island of you know give or take a hundred and fifty thousand sure. That's a rough equivalent of that in Toronto would be what like three hundred three hundred fifty thousand people that span yet. Just you know if you were to blow it up Toronto wise I mean it would just be. We wouldn't know what to do with all those And what about the second challenge. I mean you mentioned that Now that houses are more more expensive some people are being forced to rent. Where's the new inventory coming from? Because again you think about how the bigger cities solve these problems like journal can throw up six new condo towers hours right. The developers are all over it. How does that work on an island with limited Limited resources but also just like space. Yeah there are definitely you know. The government airman has responded. There are more affordable units that are starting to come to market. They're throwing millions of dollars at this but A lot of what we're seeing. That's coming on and lot of develop developers are starting to reactor saying we need. There's a huge potential here for rentals. We need rentals but a lot of those are going to be at market rates right so P I like a lot out of a lot of provinces has rent control which for tenants is great. Because you know more or less that your rent increases year to year are going to be pretty limited. Let's I'd say around inflation two percents or so. But when a unit is vacated or a new unit comes onto the market the landlords can set it where they want right so the new listings. That are getting come. Available available in a lot is going to be a market rate. They're going to be a pretty high rate so the average rent in. Pi is somewhat modest. It's like you know nine hundred dollars that includes people who've been under rent control. It's they've rented an apartment for twenty years right on the island. But the new stuff you see you know fifteen seventeen eighteen hundred dollars for pretty modest accommodations so when you talk to people. They're either people who were trying to render. Just people who've lived there for quite some time. Where where are they feeling the squeeze and and what do they think the government should be doing one thing that you hear a lot from people? They're they're they're they're squeezes in a few different directions. One is that I'm just tons of families families that are unable to find the space so families of five. There are crowding into two bedrooms. As I mentioned earlier for three bedroom vacancies couple years ago there was literally nothing available so finding the space for families is has been a real challenge. Another one that I've heard about quite a bit is for students for Upi about about ninety percent of their housing is off campus. The only have a few hundred beds on campus. But what. I've been hearing from students that they're competing with the short term rental market a lot so sites it's like Airbnb. The touristy is still going in September when school starts so a lot of students are having to double up with other people who happen to have apartments wade out. The tourism season. Then get a rental for October. So there's quite a bit precariousness that you're seeing at the start of the school

"newfoundland" Discussed on The Big Story
"Jordan Keith Rawlings and this is the big story. David Vidmar is the legislative reporter for the Saint John's telegram in Newfoundland where we head for our latest in our lay of the land series the Saint John's telegram is part of the Salt Wire Fire Network Hi David. How's it going. It is going very well. Thank you for joining us from the East Coast. How is the grand experiment of democracy going out there. Well things are I mean changes changes. The norm. I think is a is a quite frequently in Newfoundland Labrador typically. We just came out of a provincial election which is back on back on. May Sixteenth where there was this massive liberal majority where they had thirty one seats in the provincial legislature and that has cut down to twenty which gives them a one seat edge over the you know over the opposition parties and whatnot so that was a that was a big moment obviously for us out here to see that amount of seats being cut down in Atlantic Canada. Generally I mean there's been there's been I it's only Nova Oh Scotia that hasn't gone to gone to the polls fairly recently they went back in two thousand sixteen you know but but we're seeing the Greens obviously making some eat some interesting in roads and whatnot in an and in an MP and New Brunswick they didn't quite formed government but my God did they come close so you know being close to the water being close to you know relying so much a natural resources. I think is is starting to rear. Its head just a little bit here on the East Coast. What are the chances that you're provincial election earlier. This year is a microcosm of what will happen to the federal liberals in Newfoundland and Labrador which were a complete sweep last time yeah and that's always the question you know. How much can we really read it into provincial politics to federal politics. you know it's it's. It's it's not a one to one ratio. There's we'll see how that plays out but I I wrote a story. Worry about this. about you know we can have of course online that talking to pollster. Don Mills Search Area Whatnot and the way that he phrased in terms of whether or not the liberals can sweep across Atlantic on to Canada with all thirty two seats He said that there's zero percent chance that happened on October hangover twenty so couldn't really be more more definitive than that a you know there and in Newfoundland Labrador everyone is kind of pointing at Saint John's east as as really Kinda main battleground. Perhaps even the only battleground. I think the Liberals will still see some success here in Oakland lambreau because we I have never in our history sent sent no liberals. There's has always been at least one liberal. That's insane from Labrador to up to Ottawa but we've sent all seven easier as liberals at twice in our history so there might I don't to be one opportunity Lucy. you know an interesting thing about about. Saint John's is that it's a direct rematch from two thousand sixteen election Harris Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's it's a one to one Nick Whale on it is the incumbent and in two thousand fifteen he beat Jack Harris who was a he was first elected in nineteen eighty seven that he lost real quick in the in the election after that and then he was years for the as the DP leader in the province and became the d. n. p. once again. I believe in two thousand eight hundred I elected and and now they're just having another crack at it. You know in John's east. I remember Canada conventional wisdom at the time which I guess didn't turn out to be completely wise was saying that Saint John's was was the most safe seat in the country for the new Democrats on the federal scale and then you so yeah yeah there was another really tight race so at the time in two thousand fifteen Ryan cleary was was was the incumbent for the MVP going up against the shameless regan whose name we all know much more on the federal a federal thing these days so any kind of went all in on Ryan cleary and maybe kind of forgot about it was just a little bit but this around it does not look like they are forgetting about checkers. You know Jagmeet facing was here before the election was even called so they really seem to be kind of investing there so you know in this province if any district is going to not be liberal liberal by the time October twenty first. It's probably John's east but you know nick. Whale is not going to go down without a fight no question about that so what makes Newfoundland and Labrador because we're doing this with all of the provinces what makes Newfoundland Labrador different from the other Atlantic provinces first of all but from from voters and the rest of the country to the biggest thing for us is that most of the people who live in Newfoundland Labrador live on the island of Newfoundland and most of us who live in Newfoundland live on kind of the northeast avalon which which is you know I'm I'm speaking to you from Saint John's right now which is really about as like it. If you're going to look at what the geography tells you it's as though everyone in on the island roofing like gathered as far away from mainland Canada as humanly possible which is essential for something but yeah which you know we'll we'll get back to that one but the fact that we are such big island really doesn't make us unique. I guess be is obviously an island is in the it's in the name but we you know we really are massive expensive land with a with a with a relatively small population by five hundred twenty five thousand people according in the two thousand sixteen sentences counter counted here and one particular thing that makes us unique across the country is that that population is going down the demographics of Newfoundland Labrador. We are getting older faster than anybody else. I believe that the the average population or the average age of newfoundlander right now is like forty six years old and by twenty forty. That's GonNa that's GONNA go up to above above fifty yeah. It's you know so we're getting older and the fertility rate is is is downward. We're dying faster than we are being born for one thing and then on top of that to oil downturn turn in say twenty two thousand fourteen twenty fifty and really really hit this province hard we in the last provincial budgets and twenty eighteen. We made a billion dollars off oil and gas. Ask and you know that's that's all guests are inter. Inter the royalties one for the government you know and that's on a pretty average price of oil. You Know Beckon Twenty before early two thousand twelve twenty fourteen or something like that. was you know we're looking at over one hundred dollars for a barrel also so my God we had money and now we don't so we have people people who are literally dying and not being replaced and people are leaving so the demographic challenges for Newfoundland Labrador really what's it's top of mind. I think that at this point. How does that impact what voters want from their government. What are they looking for right. Now that other younger younger more prosperous provinces might not well. This is a maybe a little bit of Jason here but but but but the main thing that we're looking for I think right now is is support from the federal government when it comes to Muskrat falls because that's the other thing that makes particularly unique in the country you know we talk about large hydroelectric dams you. I heard a sightsee and whatnot but but Muskrat falls was started by the provincial government or sanctioned in two thousand ten and at the time that the the sanction to the to the population or the the number that was put out there for the cost was six point two billion dollars. Not You know not a small chunk of change at the time for a prophet to five hundred thousand people now. It's twelve point seven billion dollars and there's a real risk that electricity bills in this province are going to double as a result of this and you you know the provincial government people were trying to work in trying to figure out how to how to prevent that from happening and one of the direct ask that. I think it was a little while ago. The finance minister just made a direct call just before the election actually the finance minister. Tom Osborne made a direct call to all party. Leaders saying we need money. We need about two hundred million dollars a year from the federal government a direct federal subsidy to Newfoundland Labrador's power bills in addition to about another half billion dollars annually that the that the province is going to have to come up with on its own court to try to to try to keep electricity rates down but but you know we need a commitment of two hundred million dollars.
In the 1850s, navigating Ice Alley was deadly for ships
"In February eighteen fifty six a three rematch ship called the John Rutledge set sail from Liverpool England one of the many ships that frequently traversed the icy and dangerous North Atlantic on board were two dozen crew and more than one hundred and twenty mostly Irish immigrants on their way to New York and new lives in the United added states. It was the most dangerous trip nate ever take during those years shipwrecks were so common that they were barely mentioned and in newspapers the only way to know a ship's fate was whether or not it ever arrived in port without the Transatlantic Telegraph or radios the arrivals brought with them the only reliable news of the most harrowing part of the Journey Ice Alley if a ship was going to sink the most likely place was ice alley a dangerous stretch of ocean off the coast of Newfoundland and filled with icebergs and Burgi bits when the John Rutledge departed sketchy reports of heavy ice were just reaching Liverpool some captain said they had never seen ice alley so filled with huge birds and smaller but menacing ice fragments still so the John Rutledge headed out the captain and crew gambling with everyone's lives. If the ship went down the chances which is a anyone surviving in the frigid water and coal whipping winds was slim to none on February nineteenth. The ship slipped into thick fog near the edge of the grand banks about three hundred and fifty miles southeast of Newfoundland. Suddenly an unseen sharp edged Berg gouged a hole in the ship's. Hull crews tried to plug the leak with cargo. It was pointless. The ship was is quickly sinking the John Rutledge like nearly every American built vessel in those years was designed with an open hull without separate water blocking compartments. The sea was free to flood the length of the ship. All five lifeboats were lowered but not everyone could escape many were instantly swallowed by the Chili Atlantic thirteen. People boarded the final lifeboat including three immigrant. The children and three crew members among the latter was Thomas Nine a tough twenty two year old born into a prominent maritime family for Massachusetts it uses the situation was grim. This survivors had about a gallon of water and six pounds of cement firm biscuits the food and water quickly disappeared and one by one they started to die some from exposure to the winter air others from the horrors of drinking seawater organ failure delirium and Matt Nine days after the John Rutledge sank. You know I was alone adrift with four bodies surrounding him he was too weak to push the dead overboard so fortunately the Germania a ship sailing from France to New York spotted the lifeboat and discovered by the only survivor of the John Rutledge. Nuys rescue was a brief sensation. It was exceedingly rare for anyone one to be plucked from a North Atlantic wreck the influential nautical magazine and Naval Journal use the sinking and knives accounts to try try to shame shipowners accused of avoiding watertight compartments because of higher costs in coming years more American ship rights began began to make potentially life-saving design modifications. It finally took the loss of the titanic in nineteen twelve to force sweeping sweeping rules for bulkheads and water blocking chambers in all. US ships all told more than eight hundred and thirty people bull were lost in early eighteen fifty six among the most tragic seasons in North Atlantic shipping for decades to come gone.

"newfoundland" Discussed on As It Happens from CBC Radio
"He was trying to make him that is that the contract between between hydro Quebec. And and the Newfoundland parties was in a sense a reciprocal contract that they were both trying to meet the same ends. So these specific numbers in the contract shouldn't have to be here to what should be the general aims the rest of the supreme court, basically said if you have a contract that spells out terms specific measurable terms. He can't be a reciprocal contract. So I think that's where the to kind of break apart. It's kind of hard to imagine that something that says we will pay this amount for per kilowatt hour every year for this number of years full and buy a new contract for this number of years could be seen as a sort of a joint venture. This is what the courts decide this is what the contract looks like according to the courts as any. Anything politically involved here. I mean is there anything that the federal government should've could've would've done that would have mitigated this long ago? Yes. Debility to move electric city between provinces the way pipeline oil can move, you know, without having individual provinces, basically lock up their distribution systems. That would have been a big difference. And in this province. What tends to happen when when you look at that people say when that's where it falls down that our province like Newfoundland has only seven seats in the house of Commons, and I guess it adds to that sense. Newfoundland labrador always have they they didn't get much from joining confederation that they get the dirty end of the stick in national politics. And this is never temple that is alive. And well, I mean this labrador got enough lot through joining Canada's. Well, but I think in this case the politics are less directed against the federal government or they they are. Are two degree but more against Quebec. Frankly, Newfoundland politicians have spent a considerable amount of time drumming up dislike if not occasional hatred for Quebec on exactly these grounds. What happens now how much longer does this deal stand than twenty forty one? We hear about it a lot in the media here about it. Actually it right now, it's subject of provincial inquiry into a different hydro-electric project at muskrat falls. Where people are now saying why didn't we just wait till twenty forty one when we're going to be rolling in electric city. Anyway. So yes, there's a there is a feeling of it's a long contract, but we are counting down towards the end. Wrestle have a good weekend. Thanks. You too gerski is a columnist with telegram newspaper and the salt wire network. We reached him in sync Johns..

"A divorce Newfoundland and labrador wants out of a contract, and it seemed Quebec profit very nicely. Well, Newfoundland and labrador brings in a much smaller take this morning. However, the supreme court of Canada ruled that the deal must stand. Russell Wang gerski is calmness with the telegram newspaper and the salt wire network. We reached him in Saint John's. Vessel. You have called. This case hail. Mary pass. Was there any chance cream court was going to let Newfoundland and labrador out of its deal with Quebec, I don't think the really was not on this particular model. I mean, what they were really looking for the Newfoundland side. Anyway, was looking for was for a case to be decided on good faith that the deal that we signed so many years ago actually turned out to be something different. So it should just be renegotiated on a good faith basis. And and that's a pretty long ball. This gives a sense of just how uneven this deal is what are the numbers? The the harsh numbers of profit the profit for Quebec hydro so far is about twenty eight billion dollars and the profit on the Newfoundland side is about two billion dollars. And why is it so out of whack because back from the deal was struck the Newfoundland side who wanted to give us money to build the actual Churchill falls power complex. Settled on an idea that they wanted a fixed rate for electric city couple of reasons for that one was that they needed to pay off the bonds used to build the the whole project, but the other one was that there was actually a live concern at the time that nuclear power might take off and the price of lex ity might plunge. So what they actually wanted to do was to make sure that they were protected and be able to pay back the money that they bore road to to build a facility in the first place. Unfortunately, the opposite happened, and there was no mechanism built in that said if prices elected trinity go way way up we'll you know, that that will be shared equally or partially or in fact at all and it hasn't been feeling labradors still getting the money in dollar ended the nineteen sixty nine set price. Right. It hasn't had a doesn't taken into consideration the skyrocketing energy costs prices. It's actually worse than. The deal had an automatic renewal clause built into it. And that new renewal came into effect like year and a half ago or so and the new rate was even lower than the original rate. So we're actually getting less now than the original deal in the sixties. So why did is it court say this deal should stand? Probably the easiest way to explain it is the spring court said it's one thing if a contract is if something happens after a contract is drawn up in someone's suffers as a result. The problem is that what the supreme court ruled was the Newfoundland site hasn't actually suffered. It's done everything that the contract originally anticipated. All were not sharing in is windfall profits after the fact if you can't show that you've actually been damaged by what happened after the contract signed, you can't avail of something to protect you from being harmed because you weren't you weren't hard. One Justice who disagreed with the decision, Malcolm. Rowe who while I guess just happens to be from Newfoundland and labrador. He spoke of he said that it was there was an implied obligation, and they're subject to a heightened duty of good, faith and cooperation, I guess like just being good neighbours. There's something that could back should have done out of the goodness of his heart. Is that what do you think you say? Two degree. But I think what he was trying to make the point..

The legends were formed from the North American and African continental plates collided more than three hundred million years ago. The North American plate folded into many intricate wrinkles as it was pushed, westward, forming the ridges. We see today apparently something massive stopped the Westwood movement and the location of the bend. But what the research team used gravity measurements to find the answer. Most people assume that gravity is a same. The globe, but in gravity, measured refined it changes from place to place. That's because the density and thickness of earth. Rock layers is not the same everywhere. Certain parts of the earth are denser than others causing the gravitational pull to be slightly greater in those places using the North American gravity database, the scientists examined the gravitational, pull around the mysterious bend the denser and heart of the rock. The higher the gravity, what they found was a giant underground bog of dense volcanic rock at the location of the bed.

You can imagine they are landmarks in seeing Jones. Now, an artist says some of that vivid spectrum is showing up very far from the east coast capital on the west side of Newfoundland. Robin love has lived there since the late nineties, and she is noticed that people there are painting their houses and fish sheds just like jelly bean row and MS love, spoke with CBC corner, Brook's Jennifer Grundig about this case of by coastal color. For few years ago in Gillam there was some money like historic preservation money for people who had fish sheds to fix them up and repaint them as long as they kept to the traditional colors, which were red and white. Read mainly red with white trim, and the people could only access the money if they stuck to the tradition. So that's when I started to think, well, wait a minute. These aren't really the colors that have traditionally been here. So is there a potential to lose something that's the civic to here just in the effort to make something that's very appealing perhaps to tourists? That became my question. Some people might be hearing this and low. It's pretty colors. Everyone can have pretty colors on their homes. What's the harm in this? But is there anything that you think might be getting lost through this process where people are replicating the jelly bean look from the east coast here on the west coast? You know, I mean, maybe there's no harm and I guess, but potentially, I think there's a sense that the island becomes a bit more homogenized and the west coast of have its own history and its own traditions, and perhaps those could be lost. And just as I said, you know, those colors are so appealing and I completely understand it at the same time. There's so much here that's already extremely appealing. And I would hate to see that get kind of basically a raise, but at the same time, culture is not stagnant so changes are made. And this just might be another one.

I think if it's a month minute thirty you believe in I believe in you. Okay. Are you ready ready starts now? Newfoundland's upon first assessment. According to me, look like a big Brown bear. They're also the number one rated dog for families. According to animal planet's dogs went to one the origin of the Newfoundland is a mystery something that it was descended from the great parodies mixed with a massive in a French hound. But everyone is very clear on the fact that Newfoundland's came from Newfoundland new fees were bred to be worker dogs and lifeguards in the water. They would haul in fish nets to the shore. And they would save anyone who fell overboard a new fee? This a new Phy save Napoleon when he fell overboard on his way back to France after he was exiled from the island of Elba crazy rent to effectively do their job. The Newfoundland is basically created to be a water dog. They have webbed feet and double coat that keeps them warm. They also have enormous lung capacity and their droopy gel serve as air passages. So that they can breathe with their mouthful while waves crashing over their head Newfoundland's have unique doggy, paddle. Here's what I t's before that their paws, actually, go down and out sort of like a modified breastroke that they haven't seen in any other type of dog newbies. Typically way Hearn sixty pounds and the largest Newfoundland on record was six feet long from nose detail weighing at two hundred and sixty pounds, which is a size of a baby elephant the American kennel club recognizes four coats on the new either black Brown grey and white and black which is called Landseer the American kennel club also suggests that this breed is an excellent apartment dog because they catch potatoes when they're not working.

Because like I was following the word yours as I could not picture. What you're you're exactly what happened? So I guess that these dogs. I would down a rabbit hole. That was at least three hours long on these guys you can see video after video of these dogs saving people. So so they'll be out in the water, and they will grab them by the year, and because their mouth is completely full the Giles. I thought you meant mouthful of water if they have something in their mouth, right? They can breathe around it. Not. So the extra skin allows it to like flap flap sideways when the waves crash over they can still get out of control isn't than same. I actually have no idea that these were like real water dog..
