"Julie lalonde is an educator and an activist she is. the author of resilience is futile. And she is one of canada's leading women's rights advocates julie. Hi thanks for having me. Of course I wish it was under better circumstances but we recorded an episode of this show. I last year a couple of months into the pandemic and our experts Was saying that this was likely going to end up being a horrible year for violence against women and femicide and now i guess we have some some data on that. Yeah we have confirmation that twenty. Twenty was in fact a deadlier year for women in canada. The air prior so last year. A hundred and sixty women were killed in canada versus twenty nine thousand nine which was one hundred forty six again in twenty twenty. We had high percentage of women killed by men so ninety percent of those accused in last year's time aside our men so we're talking about a very clearly gendered problem. How surprising are those numbers or or not at all. They're not surprising to me. Because i have been doing this work for so long. And i know that women are killed at very high rates largely by men who claim to love them but last year. I mean there's so much that's happened in the past year that it's easy to forget but last year we also had canada's mass shooting so we had twenty three people killed in nova scotia and that's certainly saw a spike in the rates of Deaths of women last year and for example. What is on trend. Is that the deadliest place for women in.

Cold Frames With Kini Jabbou

"I hope you're writing a book called that we can expect to come out next year. Yes i'm working on. And so i should say. Of course we'll have a book giveaway on with the transcript of the show on to garden dot com of your new book. I don't know how you manage to get this done. In addition to everything else. I don't know honestly but it was really fun to write and sort of revisit the whole season extending as well as you know the many other reasons besides harvey and cold weather So yeah this was a fun project for me for kept me busy. And it really is not against the instruction not just season extending but it's like insect prevention. It's like all of the uses for these sort of barriers and enclosures. And so forth right. And there's a wide range of of gizmos that you have gift moses. An underrated word. I'm going to have to steal that margaret on Yeah for sure. I mean i garden and nova scotia which is dear country as is of course much of the us and canada. And i deal with your every single day. I mean. I would note for a run in my neighborhood yesterday and had to stop. Let four deer walk across the road in front of me And they were probably on their way to my garden But yeah everything from deer and groundhogs two rabbits to cabbage worms and slugs and flea beetles and potato beetles and cucumber beetles. So there are a lot of reasons to consider covers. I think most people automatically go to season extension and protecting from cold weather. But you know. I use them in so many different ways to not only protect my food from pests and cold weather but even grow healthier plants in the end have larger harvest because those plans have been protected. You know and they're able to produce better so there are a lot of reasons to sort of. Consider yourself an undercover gardner right so in the introduction. I also said i was asking questions for friend. Oh yes my friend. Do you know how that is when you ask questions for a friend. What seriously. I actually do have a friend who just felt cold frames and this is his first late fall into winter with them and he actually did ask me the question i said but That is the oldest skies in the book. Have loads of cold frame questions for me to besides the extra extending of the season in the we'll get there. 'cause build a cold frame is actually the number one thing on the top of my 2021 garden to do less because i had an ancient one that succumbed finally kinda fell apart from earlier as the gardener here in a never replaced it. And i'm just jealous especially this last year. You know. i've been jealous of my friends who have renewed. I have my seedlings in the call frame. Oh i'm having solid from the cold front. You know all these little extra goodies so called frame one. Oh one maybe we should start with like what. What is it called frame four like. Why would i check. Because there's all again all these other gizmos in the book to use our new favorite word. Yeah for sure. Well i'm glad you brought up also starting seedlings in the cold frame because most of us. I think at this point thing cold frames or just for harvesting in winter or maybe pushing back spring a little earlier so that you can start planting in march or even late february depending where you live but you know you can use a cold frame for starting seedlings which will then be dug up and transplant it to your garden but you can also use them for overwintering half hardy perennials. Or if you love to force bulbs inside and oftentimes of course many need a cold period you can put them up and put them in a cold frame for a couple of months until that cold period is up so it's not just about growing vegetables. There are many uses for coltrane. So you know if you're into alpine plants or different things like that you can use them to shelter those over winter too so lots of applications but yeah for the most part i do use mine To get a jump start an extra extra early one in spring as well. Let's go later into fall and throat winter we harvest. But you know a cold frame really told. Job is to shelter plants from ice snow winter winds you know. And even though it's a small little gizmo or device you know it really does Taken a lot of solar energy and heats up like today here. It is for reasons like it's minus twenty celsius and. i don't know what that is his parenthood. I just know it's really cold but the temperature my cold fame out there. Now check this morning. It's just above freezing. And i mean that's amazing to me that it's sunny here today and therefore the temperature inside. The frame is just freezing. So that's the whole job of a cold frame to create a micro-climate around your plants and start those seeds earlier and harvest earlier and harvest out of season. So that's the main. I think the way most of us are going is a cold front so in this one one. Maybe we start with where is a good place

Interview With Dan Westergren

"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died. We had to listen to all the versions of space. Oddity that we could find.

As oil and gas declines, where do the workers go?

The Big Story

As oil and gas declines, where do the workers go?

"Part. Three of our special five part series with the narwhal brings us to sharon riley. She is the l. berta investigative reporter for the narwhal. She's a lifelong alberton and she reports from the oil patch. Hello sharon hydrogen. How are you. I'm doing really well. And i'm excited to get a glimpse of what a really quickly. Changing industry Looks like on the ground. And why don't you just start. Maybe so we have someone to frame this around with telling me a little bit about dust. And taylor who is he and what did he do. It doesn't is one of the people that came across when i started looking into the energy transition in berta and what that really looks like on the ground for workers who are making the leap on their own so dustin was born in nova scotia. His his dad had worked in oil on an offshore oil rig there. He moved when he was a kid and he kind of has what. You would consider a fairly typical story for a lot of oil. Chris in this province but yeah i left left school before graduated and pretty much started working right off the hub and like most people numbered. I ended up in the energy industry working in oil and gas Making decent money. I mean it was pretty easy to find a decent job. He told me that it is first job. He made sixty thousand dollars a year. So i don't know about you. But when i was sixteen i was not making that kind of money. But that's a pretty typical story in alberta when the industry is booming oil and gas industry is booming. There's money to be made and of young people. Young men in particular in this province haven't always seen a reason to you know stick around pursuing education when you could support your family and your lifestyle so immediately right out the gate and what happened to him after he'd been there for a while and from your piece in your reporting i gather. It's not super uncommon these days. Yeah i mean. I think there are lots of reasons. Why an individual worker might decide that they want to shift out of the oil and gas industry their cultural reasons. You know a lot of oil and gas work involves working in a camp means being outta town away from home for at least a ten days if not a couple of weeks at a time. Which if you're if you're having if you have a family means you're away from your family for all that time as well. So what dozen described as a bit of a moral conundrum definitely remember watching the oil spill happen It was plastered all over the news for days. And i kind of watch this giant catastrophe. Just unfold in front of our eyes for days on end. Never really knowing what was going to happen. And it was kind of a heartbreaking moment he just suddenly something clicked in his mind where he decided that no longer could he work in an industry that he thought was detrimental to the planet and to future generations and he said that had a lot to do with him having kids and wondering about the world. They're going to live in and he decided to make a shift. It was a gamble for him. Where did he go well. He part of what does made him decide to make the shift as well as that. He lost his job so he lost his job so he went back to school retrained to be a solar installer in alberta. His story is the successful. He's now gainfully employed as a solar installer and he's completely left his oil and gas lifestyle. He can be home every night that that's not the reality for every worker who who may want to make a transition or have to. Because the job that they've had for many decades has disappeared. He had to do this on his own. You know he didn't have a lot of government support. There's no oil and gas transition worker program in alberta or in canada for that matter and so it's a. It's a financial gamble. It involves a huge lifestyle shift and something he took on his own. Before we talk about you know how the transition is moving along and what's to come. Can you give me a sense of just how prevalent of the oil and gas industry is in alberta. Because for for someone like me who's spends most of his life in ontario it can feel like everyone in alberta works in oil and gas. It can feel like that as well and there's are different stats out there. As to how many people are directly employed in the oil industry cap. Which is the canadian association of petroleum producers. An industry group. They said in two thousand seventeen so it's a couple years old now. There were hundreds of thousands of jobs from oil. And i think they said around three hundred and forty thousand now. Obviously that number has changed a bit since the pandemic kit. Everyone but it does go to show that. That's that's a large number of jobs and those are jobs directly related to oil so that doesn't include all of that hotels and hotel workers restaurant workers people who support the industry And the people who are directly employed in another way of looking at it is Looking at statistics. Canada figures statistics. Canada doesn't directly breakdown oil workers. It lumps them all in sort of what you might call extractive industries so that includes mining of all types oil and gas forestry fishing. And if you look at those numbers. One in every sixteen workers is employed in those extractive industries. So if you're in a room of sixteen people. One person is employed in that extractive industry. That is quite a few right. And where are we right now. I guess as we're talking in the transition towards renewable energy in in canada and around the world just in terms of how much longer that one in sixteen figure is going to be viable for albert. I think that's a million dollar question. We we hear a lot about the energy transition. We we hear from politicians and environmental groups. We've heard it from justin trudeau. We heard it from. Joe biden presidential debate that the us needs to transition away from oil. Even albert premier jason kenney has made reference to the energy transition is going to happen at some point here and just been pretty widely reported and repeated that if we're going to meet canada's climate targets many workers in fossil fuels will need to look for new jobs

Think Twice Before You Eat That Halloween Candy

"The urban legend of Razor Blades in your Halloween candy or poison hidden behind the sweet taste of a snickers bar has been around for decades to this day. Parents are still worn to inspect all candy give into their children to make sure that it's safe for consumption quoted from a mental floss article written by Ethan treks quote it's easy to see how urban legends have taken hold because they're so terrifying after all parents Ben Three hundred, sixty, four days of every year telling their kids not to take candy from strangers precisely because of might be poisoned. Then, give the thumbs up to taking snacks from every house in the neighborhood on Halloween, and that's so true and it also calls to mind the whole idea of like when we re under it, we were told not to talk to strangers online and not to get in cars with strangers, and now we literally use the Internet to summon strangers to get in their cars yet. So. Weird. It's crazy. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five Joel Best, who's a professor of sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware publishing article that reviewed reports and press coverage of candy tampering in the United States between nineteen, Fifty, eight to nineteen eighty-four during the search he found a report as early as nineteen fifty nine where children were falling ill after a California dentist named. William. Shine had distributed four hundred fifty candies laced with laxatives. Two Children Jesus thirty of these children were actually affected by candy tampering and he was later charged with outrage of public decency and quote unlawful dispensing of drugs for a dentist. A dentist, a nine, hundred, sixty, four in New York a forty, seven year. Old Woman named. Helen feel was. Annoyed by the Halloween custom of handing out candy to children especially to children who she felt deserve to be given free candy for she handed out bags of treats including ant poison and dog biscuits while when she was confronted about her actions she said, she was doing it as a joke and only gave the items kid she felt were too old to be trick or treating. Is later reported that she was admitted to the State Hospital for mental observation. Good. God right. You don't know what their issues and why they're treating, and even if they don't have an issue like who fucking cares don't be so stingy. Yeah. Like would you want them taking part in egging in toilet paper toilet paper people's houses or would you like them going door to door and get some candy? Just let them go home with bags of candy and then do whatever they're going to do at the house. They're not gonNA come back at midnight to your house. They've if you give him dog biscuits. Yeah. It's like you just set yourself up for some mischief right in one thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight, Toronto police had discovered razor blades and noodles and Halloween apples. The footage found in the CBC Archives Showed Police Displaying Candy that was supposedly poisoned in nineteen seventy, five year old boy named Kevin Dotson from Detroit died after supposedly eating heroin laced candy diseases. After news media outlets had a field day with telling all parents to dispose of their children's hard earned cash flowing treats. It was later discovered that the parents of the child were trying to hide the true events led to his death apparently the uncle of the boy. had a heroin stash in his home and the little boy had gotten into it and ingested a capsule filled with heroin. The parents sprinkled heroin on the boys Halloween candy after he had died as a cover up to protect the boy's uncle God. But that also kind of reminds me of the the thing that goes around of Lake don't watch out people are putting edibles in your candidate and like no nobody's giving you hundreds of dollars of drug senior kids. In two thousand and Minnesota a forty nine year old man named James Joseph Smith was charged with felony for tampering with candy after a fourteen year old boy was pricked with a needle after biting into a candy bar. Lou. He apparently had put needles into snickers bars and handed them out on Halloween. Night. He was charged with one count of adultery in substance with the intent to cause harm illness or death new four other boys were found to have the needle lace snicker Bar, but the only one boy was harmed. In Two thousand sixteen in Nova Scotia a twelve year old boy was injured when he reached into his candy bag and was cut by a razor blade poking out of a kick cap arc. In two thousand, seventeen multiple reports come out of Ontario Canada where eleven year old girl underwent surgery at U. ship it into recess peanut Butter Cup containing a metal object although it was unclear if this was a result of candy tampering or a manufacturing incident. And other eleven year old boy was also reported to have received a Tutsi roll containing melatonin pill before. Tone of all things so. Yes. So harmless but just go to sleep in two thousand, nineteen in Connecticut thirty seven year old Jason Racks was arrested and held on a two hundred fifty thousand dollar bond after the parents of at least two trick or treaters found razors in their children's candy bags. He was charged with risk of injury to a minor reckless endangerment and interfering with police officer apparently did not go quietly when arrested and he also stated that the razor blades were accidentally spilled into the Cannibal for boxer razors who just happened to have next to it. Yes. Yep Yeah I totally believer like you do a later unrelated incident involved someone handing out THC laced gummy candies in their Halloween trick or treaters. Each of the bags contained colorful gummy cubes each packed with ten milligrams of THC. It was stated that it was unknown if this was intentional or from might have been an unintentional oversight by the person handing out the treats but the packaging was obvious enough that it shouldn't be consumed by children Marcos is probably high end didn't notice it air probably high and just in the bag knows because there's pictures of it and that looks like little gummy little gummy bear bags. Yeah. So again, the joke comes up though that nobody's going to willingly hand over yet. They're edibles. Yeah. At the conclusion of Joel Best Research. So get it only went from nine, hundred, fifty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and a lot of these cases. I, told you about were in the two thousands So, this was his conclusion with his research at the conclusion of Joel Best Research into candy tampering incidents. He concluded that the vast majority of reported about seventy five percent who were either hoaxes conducted by children or their parents or didn't result in serious injury interesting. He also stated that contemporary legends are ways that society expresses anxiety and urban legends like Halloween Sadism could've stemmed from societal grievances like nineteen, eighty, two with the cyanide laced tylenol incident in. CHICAGO? The September eleventh terrorist attacks and subsequent Anthrax scare and of course now with Yeah. which actually plays into what you were saying. Devil's night about the depression and the war and how people just kind of like did what they did on Devil's night as a reprieve or as Cathartic. Occurrence. Yeah. So yeah, and that a lot of these urban legends Kinda just stemmed from people just having so much anxiety about the world in the world's problems. Yeah. Yeah. He has stated quote is it possible that someone maliciously passes out treats with the intent of harming children at random of course but this raises the question why they're usually aren't multiple reports from the same area effectively saying that the urban legend is just that nothing more than a hoax or scary story to tell her on time we're anxieties already

How Bandon Dunes revolutionized golf

"There aren't many golf courses in the world that are better than Bandon dunes but bannon's lasting legacy isn't as a golf course it doesn't idea. That north. America can have true links golf and even better that it can have remote golf courses that can turn into bucket lists destinations. Plenty of course have followed in. BANDON footsteps like cabot links to Nova Scotia or sand Bali and Wisconsin. It's a movement. But it sure didn't start that way. I'm to chair on today's drop zone. Here's how one course in nowhere Oregon turned into an entire movement all by accident. The story of Bandon, Dunes begins with David McLay Kidd A. Scottish. Twenty six year old who had dreamt of becoming a golf course architect but had no concrete path to making that happen. So back in nineteen ninety, four I was twenty six years old and working for the. Detail in Scotland My father was a the golf courses manager and I was working for the development division of. Detail effectively. And I was hating all the Gulf Bar and I was a wannabe golf course architect type I'd done a couple little things but nothing really of any note. And Mike Kaiser Have Franko Rick Summers who's the current owner of PGA Goldman? Zine And Mike said to rick SARS I've got this piece of land on the Oregon coast a WanNa build on authentic Scottish Irish links experience who you guys she'd higher I'm thinking of hiring you know told Vase Your Jack Nicklaus or Pete Dye or a Rick said will you should hire a Scottish golf course architect if you want something authentic in a Mike Chuckled and said, I, would but the old died one hundred years ago. At this point, it wasn't just mcclay kid who was an unknown the Golf World Mike Kaiser was to. He'd made his money by bringing a fresh mindset to the greeting card business decades before need proven to be a smart businessman. But. That doesn't guarantee any success as a wannabe course developer. As an outsider is first instinct might have been a hire a big name architect someone from the establishment to give his project credibility. But maybe he had it in the back of his mind that fellow outsider would be a more proper fit. So he invites David McLay kidd the remote site on the Oregon coast to check things out. and. So I arrived on the state. With my dad. So holding my hand and we will the sixteen hundred acres I remember. Mike Mike is wasn't there. I'd never ma'am yet. He's a caretaker shorty who even then in the seventeenth was our chaperone for the week. So David and his father walked the property with his caretaker shorty Dow and they're thinking themselves. What if you're doesn't know any better? What if he might hire a no name? But shorty keeps asking mcclay kids, business card and eventually he gives them one. In short, he pulls out a stack of cards. He's recently collected mcclay. Kid realizes that every major golf course architect has walked the same site and I realized that might Kaiser was pretty astute and he was he was looking at every possible option as an architect to do this. This set something off in mcclay kid if he's going to be an underdog, well, he may as well act like one. At that point I think I go a little a fire in my Bailey probably because I realized that this guy was never going to hire me I have anything to show I there was no way I was twenty six. So he's going to hire some big name but Hale I'm not going to leave here with my gender my chest I'm gonNA leave with my hailed high. So I went to the local drugstore I bought a dozen sheets of poster board and a few marker pains and I rule what would now be considered a powerpoint presentation. I did it on poster boards with a Marker Pens And Mike Kaiser flew in a few days later in his private jet with some of the executives from Cambridge sports and some of his buddies and I laid. half a dozen or dot com you remember no posterboards that told Mike Kaiser this rich guy from Chicago with a great piece of land, what it would take to build. A true authentic links course in America, and I did so with kind a little chip on my shoulder because I figured with my relatively limited knowledge of Link School Golf in America that there was nothing authentic I was told Pebble beach was a links course doesn't look like it to me I. I was told you know the latest Gulf course by whichever. PGA Pro you WanNa pick a that was in the mountains of southern California was a links course was the farthest thing from the truth. So when I painted I a scenario to Mike Kaiser I said, Hey, if you really want to build a true links course in America years, what it takes and I had a half a dozen points and there were absolutely critical. Such as. You can't have golf carts. There's no golf carts in the British isles, you walk. There's no fancy clubhouse I on the ocean. That's where you put the best green. The clubhouse is back in a corner. The base land is Gulf. The fairways aren't flat. They're pitching in tumbling. There aren't any lakes. There's no babbling streams. There's no car pass. The grasses we use these old style firm grasses van may even have told him there's no arrogation. Can't quite remember what if I said none on a of the bunkers aren't these or MIBA Cloverleaf shapes there these pulp bunkers. Are there to punish the bowl not to Be Up on the week. And as I went through this explanation of links Gulf. Mike had a wry smile on his face and in his. Cohorts laughed openly I load at the ridiculousness of such thought in the sophisticated Gulf market of the United States. I assume that when my father and I left the very next day, we would never hear from Mike Kaiser Regain are crazy Scottish ideas of goal in America were just that while. American. Goal for would traits all the way to the southern. Shores to play golf in the wind and rain and walk and find themselves in eight. Pulp on Kerr surrounded by facie grasses and pitching fear waste were not a single flat lies available such a scenario could never ever work.

Minister Ken do somethings when I'm focusing on and I just talked to the she's not long ago and he's focusing on the boats going on to water and the media. Talk. Store. Members. And I told him I'm going to focus on three issues that just within the provincial jurisdiction of premier of Nova, Scotia and yesterday he said that Nova Scotia have jurisdiction of fixes and I said that's wrong in three areas one, it's provincial legislation that house and changed to make it legal for us to sell our trump lobster here Nova Scotia. So there's a regulation that needs to be changed amended. So we're going to Providence House today and call on him to change. Because the fishermen are saying it's illegal to sell and buy or by which it is according to Nova Scotia's regulations. So that has to be struck down. It's going to be struck down by either the premier goes and changes the act on their own or maybe they want to charge me today go to court. It's GonNa get struck down it is a regulation that's inconsistent with the treaty rights and the Constitution. The other two areas the premier.

"nova scotia" Discussed on The Current

"Forty of the Marshall Decision clearly states that the paramount regulatory objective conservation responsibility for it falls squarely on the minister responsible not on the aboriginal or non Aboriginal user of the Resource Full Stop. So the gulf between. US is that our commercial decision offers a path forward here for mutual co existed, but the ministry needs to exercise her authority there. It's going to take courage that no government has shown for the past twenty one years every good negotiation and with everybody going home angry, and that's what's going to have to take place. Here we need a minister who has the political courage to anger commercial in in season fishery and to anger the out of season fishery as well because. That's the kind of courage. It's GonNa take the find an equitable coexistent possession in. The civic inequity. First Nation Chief Mike Zach said yesterday that this isn't a conservation. This is an example of systemic racism. Do you believe that. Look. I would be the last guy to to deny the presence of systemic racism within Nova Scotia or the fact that racism originally displaced in colonialism displaced the MAK fishers under legitimate right right to fish and I wouldn't. I wouldn't de-legitimize chief sacks views on that. But our only concern here is conservation and and rights don't exist in a vacuum which is also stated in. The Marshall Decision and once also be clear. It's appropriate for anyone to fishing a claw closed lobster breeding multi multi-front during the close season. It's not ecologically sustainable that point is important because the number of lobsters that the first nations fishermen are catching is said to be relatively small compared with that of commercial fisherman. So where's the daily wise there daylight between those two positions And well, I would say because although chief sack has recently issued some licenses that he created on his own under no existing Canadian law framed legal framework. There has been the presence of more than forty commercial officer, but it's fishing extensively in Saint Mary's base for the last three or four years, and that is having a serious consequence, which is evidence through the up ozone landings, which shows sixty five percent decline in lobster landings within Saint Mary's Bay that's not evidenced in the wider lobster fishing area. What do you want from Dfo from the Department of fisheries and Oceans Right now? Well I think that we all want clarity. You know one thing that chief sacking I have agreed on offer this crisis is that. Our issues or not with each other in the shouldn't be indigenous versus non-indigenous issue or issues with administered in her lack of action to reconcile this issue for anybody and so I think that no matter no matter how we slice it at this point in coming on.

Towns across Canada and I've always been in settings where I've very much appreciated. The fact that my patients have access to healthcare wherever we are whether it's a small town or a big city. You know there's there's variations of cross across the country, but fundamentally, all of my patients do not need to worry about. Physician and hospital care. They do not need to pay when they come see knee or when they get to the hospital they know they can count on that care and that's always been really important to me. I also work in public health in very much care about health policies that. Benefit the health of a community of population and absolutely access to to healthcare is a fundamental determinant of Health I. Think it's something that I wanted to support in a in a everywhere I can in one of those ways has been through involvement with Canadian Doctors for Medicare for about the last ten years. and GM or Canadian for Medicare A as a nonprofit organization we've existed just over ten years and our. Fundamental goal is to maintain an improve our single payer publicly funded healthcare system in. Canada. So we want to maintain that single payer but at the same time know that there's there's always things we can do to make it better, but we can do that with a single payer system. So that it might be a bit confusing for our listeners. To hear that the Canadian single payer healthcare system is also called Medicare since we have a program called Medicare that only. Available for seniors sixty, five and older Whereas Canadian Medicare is of course. Accessible to everybody from to cradle-to-grave. So can you just talk a little bit about how Canadian Medicare works are there are there physician networks? Can you ever lose your coverage? Are you allowed to just out of the system or pay to jump the queue? So we do color our health care system Medicare in Canada at the same time when it actually is it's a series of we have provinces and territories, and so there are thirteen provincial and territorial health insurance programs across the country. So every province and territory is responsible for delivering care. Under the umbrella of what's called the Canada Health Act, which outlines the core principles of of Medicare and Canada and one imposes is universality but really it's a a series of health insurance plans that everyone is covered for primarily for physician and hospital services. So for example, where I work I see patients I build my provincial health insurance program I get paid in that way I cannot bill a private insurance program for for my services. Because it is publicly funded. I'm not allowed to then go in and bill a private insurance program. So for the pieces that are covered publicly through universal system, you cannot buy insurance to go see a physician or go to a hospital privately you need to access it through the public system just as as everyone else does we do have some of our care about thirty percent that is privately paid for either through supplemental insurance or through. Private payment, and that covers pieces like dental care some medications, physiotherapy other allied health professionals, and to be honest it's a gap in that we don't cover some of those pieces, but the vast majority of of care is covered under our public system.

How to Make Your Website Accessible to All

"Hello My name is Jeff White. And I'm the CO founder of Kula Partners, a marketing and web design, and Development Agency based in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. We work primarily with BT manufacturers located throughout North America and I'm also the CO host of a podcast called the Kula ring where we interview those manufacturing marketers and learn about their successes and failures and the things that they're most interested are excited about. But today, I'm here to talk to you about how to make your website accessible to all. It's a really important topic and not one that a Lotta people understand or even know. The importance of. But the fact of the matter is. Over thirteen percent of adult Americans have some form of disability with vision and hearing loss being the most prevalent and in this day and age there are actually lawsuits being levied against organizations that do not have. Websites in fact, the same laws that apply to accessible places such as having wheelchair ramps or accessible washrooms the ADA. With disabilities, act applies to the web. So what are we going to talk to you today about how you can structure your site in a way? So that is going to be available and accessible to everyone and I'm GonNa show you exactly what you can do in order to make your site available to all. With thirteen percent of Americans having disability, and the fact that in many beat be sales relationships having eight ten to fourteen. Members of buying committee. There's a very real chance that some of the people that you're trying to sell to actually do have a disability and as such ensuring that your site is available to those people is not only the right thing to do but it also may impact your ability to sell to the companies that you want to sell to. So, let's talk about that. From a foundational perspective. One of the very first things that you need to consider when you're building an accessible website is that your navigation is clear and concise and that it makes sense and adds value to the content on the site. Many. People when they're putting together their information architecture, there's main sitemap navigation? Used general categories such as products services about us, things like that. But those don't really begin to describe what kinds of content you're going to find underneath of them. and. I often urge our clients and others that we work with to use more descriptive language that talks about the actual categories of products at the top level of their site. This ensures that upon first glance or I read through of those navigation categories that someone can actually get more information about what it is that your company does or cells. So I would encourage you to put those key categories into the navigation to ensure that it actually makes additional sense to someone who's breeding it or viewing it for the first time. While it's very important for your navigation to be well-structured and for the link names to be relevant and descriptive of the content that people are going to find behind them. Structuring the page hierarchy of the site is of equal importance. And not only does this help to organize the content within the site, but it also helps to ensure that visitors to the site are able to find where they are in the overall site structure. You need to add signposts, breadcrumbs, and other elements help people exactly what page people are on within the site and what category of content they're looking at it in. This will help them ensure that they know where they are spatially within the site. One of the great things about using semantic. For your navigation is that not only are you going to make it easier to understand in use for all of your site visitors, but it's going to have a positive impact on your on page search as well. So as you're creating this navigation, the second thing that you need to consider is that people with certain disabilities are going to have a hard time navigating the site with traditional tools like track pads and mice, and touch. They're going to be using screen readers and other assistive tools. And they need to be able to move through the site in a way that isn't necessarily the same as what a sighted person would be able to do. So, we like to employ something called keyboard navigation that allows a user to quickly skip past all of the chrome or navigational elements that they can get right to the meat of the site this happened by hitting the tab key and allowing somebody to actually skip directly to the content within the site, and if they choose not to do that, it will actually read to them what the different navigational elements are. So implementing keyboard navigation is one of the quickest things that you can do to actually make your site accessible. If you're looking for a guide to all of the requirements for website accessibility you need look no further than the website content accessibility guidelines or why Cag-. This is a list of all of the available accessibility features and things that need to be built into your site to meet or exceed the accessibility standards. There are currently two core levels that we are concerned about, and that's Aa and. AAA. AAA guidelines actually add additional scope for higher level contrast, as well as devices and considerations for those with cognitive disabilities, not just hearing or sight. And there are two different levels of this. The AA guidelines have less stringent contrast requirements. In. Small text. It's four and a half to one in the triple A. Guidelines looking at a difference of seven to one. So this insures that text that is smaller than eighteen point in Roman or fourteen point in bold has sufficient contrast between the foreground, the background. So as to be legible to those who may not have the ability to see it as clearly as those with regular normal site.

"This is national native news I'm Antonio Gonzalez to former residential schools in Canada have been named national historic sites as down. Carpenter reports the schools which represent a dark history are now being recognized as one of the events that shaped Canada to schools added to the official roster of national historic events are in Nova Scotia and Manitoba. It's the first time a residential school has been named in such a way Canada's environment minister. Jonathan Wilkinson says. Is Not, just about telling the good things. It's also about recalling the more challenging aspects, commemorating and understanding history not celebrating it. Perry Belgarde is the national chief of the assembly of first nations bell. Guard says first nations people still feel today the intergenerational trauma of the residential schools and it's part of our shared history. It's dark history of in terms of our shared history, but Canada and everybody needs to learn from that, and again, we've always said that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The residential schools are described as a dark stain on Canada's passed the government funded church run schools were designed to assimilate native children.

The state is seeing in the twin cities and surrounding counties. This state has gone from two to five to now nine counties over ten percent. That trend is worrisome this late into the summer to combat rising cases burkes is urging minnesotans to continue wearing masks and socially distance during the pandemic.

Frost Protection

"GonNa talk about what you can do if an early freeze is predicted for your area. Now, that may seem hard to imagine right now at the end of August where it's hot and Sweaty, but the fact is next month. Those temperatures are going to start going down and depending on where you garden. You might have some very chilly nights. and. If you're not ready to up on your growing season, there are a couple of things that you can do. That's right now our friend. Nikki Deboer, she lives up in Nova Scotia, and it's a fellow garden communicator and chase sort of has a specialty of extending the season. So you should look for Nikki's book about Extending Your Garden, harvest if you're interested in you live in a cold place. Candida or northern Wisconsin or Minnesota, and all these places that get cold early, this is the time to kind of get prepared if you are an in a location where it's possible for you to have a frost in September and your garden is still producing well, this is the time to get prepared and I would say one of the first things to do is to have on hand some of the non woven fabric such as harvest. Guard, there are several non woven white fabrics. They're breathable water goes through light goes through and they make a good protection for plants whether they are put over hoops in a garden to keep them up off the plant or whether you drape them just right over the plan at the last minute because dear, you've seen the forecast and I've got to do something you can just drop them right over I think they are more effective if you. Can Get some airspace in between the plant and the top of the fabric? And another method that you can use if you're in a rural area and have easy access to Hay bales is to line up some Hay bales on both sides of your row or on the edges of your raised beds and then stretch the. Non Woven fabric over the Hay bales, and that makes kind of a little shelter that's insulated undecideds and covered on the top. Yeah and you can just peel back that cloth during the day if you want to when it warms up and then and then lay down again at night now I know the first time. I heard about this I thought how can that tiny little lightweight piece of cloth do anything to protect my plants? It just didn't make sense to me. It wasn't believable didn't seem possible. But it actually does work. Now do you have any idea C l? If it's going to be. Twenty in your garden, it might not work if it's going to be twenty eight in your garden, it might be enough. Do you have any idea how many degrees worth of protection this could actually give you I think it. It really does vary. It varies first of all as to when you put it on if you put it on earlier in the day, it traps some heat in the soil actually it. So it can help hold heat in the soil, which is then released at night and it's not just the fabric. That's holding some heat in, but it's also the fact that the fabric has helped the heat build up in that area during the day. So so I don't know specific degrees than I. Do think it depends on the airspace. How big is it depends on how much soil is exposed and it depends on when you put that covering on in order to help the greenhouse effect that's going on there. Well, it's a great way to extend your growing season's certainly at the end of the season and if some of you have. Decided to take territorial up on their discount offer and you've ordered the seeds that you WanNa plant for your fall and winter growing. This is a technique you are definitely going to want to take advantage of

AI Tries to Save the Whales

"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

How Do You Make Ice Cream?

"Rubia Kamara is the chef and co owner of an cream shop called Ruby scoops, which is planning on opening up in a new location in Richmond Virginia here, the United States later this year. Rabiu is our guest for this episode and she says, she decided to make a career in ice cream when she started to think about being an adult who needed to have a job and how to have a job that feels like fun at least most of the time I realized that I was GonNa say signed working and I wanted to do some that enjoyed doing. So I went to culinary school and we learned how to make ice cream like in a machine, their small machine but I really enjoyed the process and the different things you could add to it and fell in love with it and just decided. That if I was GonNa do something for myself long-term. I wanted to be ice cream because I from my childhood even now to adult Abulat fond memories that include ice cream and I wanted to be a part of that for families and friends in people that I know and don't know into you know old a special place in their heart through. What makes your ice cream special will I I? It's delicious Zeiss Grievous but we make it all by hand. So it's all small batch make more than like four gallons at a time because of the machine and have. We do Vegetarian Gluten Free Vegan. We're working on some sugar free. So we're doing our best to make sure that we can accommodate everybody's lifestyles, dietary restrictions and slipped Reggie with cool Sitri and then ownership wise. We are black women and we're on what kind of edge does that give you that another shot might not have for us it's very important that we make people feel. Safe and inclusive and accepted because the things that we've both had issues with. Throughout our own lives, we want everybody to be able to come into the shop. We matter what they look like at identify as who they you know whatever they're going through we want them to feel safe to come and enjoy. Ice Cream cookie with themselves with whomever they desire and. Feel like that space is there's Well. That's cool. Because everybody should be able to enjoy ice cream. Absolutely. Absolutely. That's exactly. It's also the way a lot of our young listeners field. So let's hear some of your questions. Hello I'M CHARLOTTE I'll leave in Australia Newcastle and Fluffy so deny. To, learn how to Mike US Cream. I names ULA years old from Nova Scotia Canada, and I'm wondering how does not turn into ice cream? Hi May name is May and flavors up, and my question is holidays came made ice cream sounds like it's just cold cream, but there's a little more to it. So what is ice cream? So ice cream is defined as a frozen dairy dessert. That basically has air like incorporated into it while it's freezing because while the air. So the basis of it is usually heavy cream milk. Sometimes I'd guilt not always use sugar and then whatever your flavorings are gonna be. So we basically he'd all those things up together bring him to a point where all of our ron greedier become safe to eat. Whole it down and then. Put it into machine which we refer to as a batch freeze there that we would turn on as a cylinder on inside so that ice cream is spinning as getting cold. So while we incorporate air that ice cream, if you will you get basically this fluffy creamy product because when you mix. Hold an air milk. You get that texture that we all know as ice cream if it didn't spin around if you didn't get the air into it, would it just be like a block of ice to ascend? So does going to save. You don't put the air intuit things that we also know popsicles if you've ever had like a fudgesicle which is the icy but still cold that is what would happen if you didn't pump that air into it so that if you wanNA sound fancy, we referred to that freezing as. Simply. Frozen. So quietly frozen basically freezes. In like a period of inactivity.

"Him And he is shot and killed but it was complete happenstance. That is that is the truth of of of what happened. Here has the motive. Become clear at all Since you started looking into it I know you mentioned it began with a domestic situation. No the motive is not clear. I know a lot of people jumped to the conclusion that this was about a domestic incident. Certainly police say that was the first assault. That was the first violent event But they don't know if that's what spurred him to kill the other people involved here some of them he had feuds with over money or other issues It's not clear why he would. He would drive in some cases sixty kilometers or more to a specific person's home and killed them in their house That part seems very premeditated. That's and that's hard to understand but no the short answer is we do not have a full understanding of his motive and we may never have that. It's interesting because during the course of of this chat you said once that it was clear that he'd been really preparing for this and then you also mentioned that you know a couple of people that you talked to had no idea that he would do something like this that it was out of the blue. There's a lot of people who who knew guy for years. And they thought him as a very friendly very outgoing. Very helpful neighbor or a lot of people knew him as a dentist. He worked on their teeth He had a lot of patience. You know they said that he had his quirks. He was protective of his parking. Lot in Dartmouth would have a dark side when he drank too much but everyone I've spoken to. They all go back to. They do not understand how this could happen how he could do it. Can you tell me a little bit about his connection to some of the victims? You mentioned he knew them. Or had feuds with them and then others were random. Yeah so we're still trying to get a good handle on all of victims because there's so many there's twenty two some we're simply neighbors right. They live next door to his home imported peak where he had a very Extensive log cabinet. He's quite proud of some of them. Were people who who worked in his garage. He liked to tinker. He was mechanically inclined. He had a large collection of motorcycles. And one of the neighbors manning. Aaron talk would work in a garage with him We don't understand if they had a beef or not Another woman who was killed a neighbor. Lisa mccully she was a local teacher. She had bought the House. She was living in from the gunman and his uncle. So there was a financial relationship there Some people had had thought that they had dated in the past. But we're not able to confirm that Two of the people killed up in. Wentworth Sean McLeod. And his wife. They were correctional officers. Sean knew him as a hunting buddy and They had A through previous romantic relationships had had a connection with women they had dated And other people who who were not killed but there was a man Who owns an excavation company? Who said the gunman showed up on his doorstep banging on his door. Trying to get in Sunday morning said that He only knew. The gunman is a guy who who shared interest in motorcycles With him that they had never had a beef. He couldn't understand why he would would want to harm him. So we still don't have a great understanding of why there would be some people that he would be targeting but it certainly appears he was definitely target stomach. The people that he killed. Do you have a sense Well I guess you would for your own Reporting that's going on but also may be for the RCMP of of what we're still trying to figure out and what kinds of things both you're you're looking at and the police are looking at a big one is is motive. Of course why he would have done this. How much pre planning was involved? And he had a lot of weapons. He had a lot of ammunition and he had all of the equipment and the gear of a police officer but does that mean he was planning this rampage. We don't know that the police would like to know where he got some of his weapons they believe some of the the assault rifles the long guns that that he used in his rampage came from the. Us They don't know any more than that they want to know if he had help. And we'd like to find out the same you know in the in the lead up to this attack whether there were people who unknowingly helped him get some of the police equipment or police uniforms he had. He was driving around in a cruiser. That had a real police radio in a real police light bar. Where did he get that stuff? So these are some of the things we want to find out if he had helped one of the things that Sadly we often do after these shootings is people dig in and they start to find out about The killers online presence and where he was going and who he was talking to on the Internet and I haven't heard And maybe I've missed it anything about this guy's online life. Do We know anything now. That is a that is a big missing piece in in what we know about him we know he was fascinated with the police. And we know that he told people That he was either a former rcmp that he was retired or he sometimes claimed he was in the auxiliary. He was obsessed at seend with being a police officer pretending to be a police officer. But it's not clear that he took that obsession online. We just haven't found that yet so so we don't. We don't know a whole lot about that part of his life. What's it been if you can Just describe it to just be there in the community the past couple of weeks. I mean I know Last week there were also other active shooter reports. That turned out to be nothing. And as we're talking to you today You're also reporting on helicopter crash it. I just can't imagine what that community is going through it. It's been a difficult. Few Weeks Nova Scotia. There's no question I think people are trying to make sense of this It felt surreal in a Lotta ways to see these these Memorial spring up. You know on telephone poles mailboxes and fences around the province because it's in the middle of a pandemic and people are being told not to gather together not to mourn so that adds an element to this that that makes it. Unlike any other shooting I've ever covered It it's it's it's exhausting. It feels relentless. And I think that there's a lot of people in Nova Scotia just kind of wondering what has happened to their province and to the backdrop of this already really oppressive pandemic that we're living in so you're right last Friday. There was an emergency alert that someone thought they heard gunshots in an area called Hammonds plains. That's five minutes from where I live As soon as that. That alert when my phone went crazy and everyone who who knows me was sending texts asking. We were okay. I mean ultimately there were no shots. Fired someone it was a false alarm but this is a province on edge. People are anxious. People are are freaked out. Frankly about what's happened here. And so what would be otherwise? Ordinary police calls are becoming something a lot more than that. And I just think that people's nerves afraid how about the relationship between the public and the RCMP. I know there was Some discussion of whether or not they should have been posting to social media versus sending out an alert which they later did for Other reports of shots And the investigations taking a long time. And there's a lot we don't know What'S THE DYNAMIC THERE. So it seems like people are splitting into two camps and there there are a lot of folks who are saying we defend the RCMP You know the are doing the best they can and and responding to a shooting at the likes of which we've never seen a Nova Scotia before and I get that sentiment completely that while the rest of us were were locking our doors or or in hiding there. Were running towards this thing. I think the criticism that we're hearing from Moscow isn't directed at at the boots on the ground or the or the front line officers. It's more at the people at the administrative level. Who make the decisions around when emergency alerts are are issued and they WANNA know why in this case and over the course thirteen hours was an emergency alert never issued in the province and believe that lives could have been saved if people knew or more people knew that this guy was on the loose that he was dangerous armed and then he was he had killed a lot of people and and appeared to have appear to have an agenda? That people saying this is what emergency alerts should be used for. It's been hard to understanding for a lot of people why the only chose twitter as a way to to to get the word out While the gunman was on the loose because twitter as as as great as it is does have its limitations in an emergency and a lot of people in rural Nova Scotia. Who Don't use it so it's There are a lot of questions about how the handle what's going to happen in the next few weeks I mean. I'm sure that there's going to be a an investigation into how it was handled. But also the investigation continues in the RCMP said You know the day after the tragedy that this would be going on for months. Yeah so they're slowly They're slowly releasing somebody's crime scenes. Were Sixteen and I'm spread around the province They're allowing people to go back to their homes in the community. Port a pick where this began. They are slowly allowing residents to return to their But it it's it's GonNa be a while before life gets back to normal Nova Scotia and I don't know if people ever get back to feeling about the problems the way they did before the shooting. I think this has changed things for a lot of people. How so I just think they don't feel safe here is as they used to a sentiment whether it's actor not that mass shootings didn't happen in Nova Scotia and we. We now know that can happen anywhere. I think that just changes the way you look at your province Greg.

"Do we know anything about the guns that he used in these crimes? Where he got them from. Where they legal. We now know that there were multiple firearms used. We know that there were pistols. There were long guns that he had in his possession. We know that he acquired Heidi Stevenson's gun when he shot and killed her We know that at least one of the guns came from Canada Other guns came from the United States and that he was not licensed to acquire in to possess guns. Okay and then one thing I wanna flag with you and something that has been a little bit difficult for me to understand. Something happened nowhere near where the actual gunman was and these shots. That were fired by the RCMP at a fire hall it the the the extent. I can tell you at this. Point is simply that To police officers are alleged. Have Discharged there Firearms fired their guns. But not at each other. And can you tell me what happened there? Yes this is a situation that was partially caught by by witnesses and seen this happen so this is in in onslow. Nova Scotia is one of these small communities that we've been talking about And two officers and these are legitimate. Officers are SEPIA officers. Part of the manhunt trying to track down. This shooter arrive at the Fire Hall and began opening fire on the building and in fact doing some damage to the building and doing some damage to one of the vehicles inside the building. They actually had to take that vehicle out of service. It was damaged so much and so. We're not exactly sure what happened there. We know that the serious incident response team had looked at that as to what specifically they were firing at. And we're not certain at this point okay and that must have been terrifying for the people who were there who I understand where they're like evacuate from Puerto. Pec sure well and keep in mind like a rural fire station on a Sunday morning. Likely isn't often that busy but this place was packed because people were being evacuated from quarterback into this fire hall so people taking out of what was a legitimately risky dangerous situation. Being brought to what they're told is an area of safety Which was then for. No apparent reason shot up. Rcmp officers briefly before they moved on. Okay so I mean obviously we know so much more about what has happened since you and I spoke last week and the story is only getting more disturbing right the more that we learn you know particularly. I can't even imagine what the woman who survived must be going through right now We've talked today about some big unanswered questions. You know this period of time in the morning four hour window. The guns where. They're coming from this one incident at the Fire Hall Do you have any other big unanswered questions? That are still lingering for you now. I mean obviously how he was able to his hands on these weapons how he was able to leave that perimeter as well and I mean we've been talking about this since the beginning answering the question why we still don't know if we're ever going to get that information but that is something on many people's minds as you know some kind of an explanation..

Several police units responded to the area and upon arriving located several people who are deceased some of which were lying in the roadway there are sixteen crime scenes five structure fires most of those being residences.

"An RCMP officer. But who were the other ones where they connected to the shooter? Was THIS RANDOM What do we know about that? Rcmp in their news conference earlier said that Victims some of the victims were known to the suspect and some were not some were targeted. They said and some random so It kind of goes all over the place with regards to that. There was no at least at this point. They haven't identified a real sort of motivation behind the whole thing. But there are five houses in the area that That were burned down and They are have been unable to at least this point. Get all the way through the rubble of those houses. So that's why the NPR saying that We may see even a higher death toll than we already have. Can you backtrack a little and kind of take me through this? So it starts import a pick and you mentioned that. He moved to a couple of locations where the houses that were burned in doing what happened there. They have not said Where the houses that were burned Officially I do believe it was early on because he was After that Piecing together just based on the information that they gave us as the pursuit was going on. I don't think that he stopped sort of moving in a vehicle but again that not confirmed by the RCMP. I I I would assume that. Some of those houses were in the in the sort of where it all began in the community of quarterback. What was it like on Sunday when this news was breaking? And you know to your point. There weren't any press conferences until much later and people were trying to figure out what's going on whereas this guy and all they have is A tweet essentially what were you guys doing We were trying to to get as much information as we possibly could out to people Obviously everybody wanted to know where this person was and I think there was at least speaking. Personally there was more and more concern for me As we watched where this car or this car that was carrying this individual was was going. I mean important. Pick his is a good hour and twenty five hour and thirty minutes sort of north west of Halifax so I mean close but not really close to the radio station and to you know our families here in Halifax but as this this pursuit started to to occur and they were they were posting more information where this individual was being spotted he was getting closer and closer and closer and closer to Halifax in fact the whole thing came to an end in a community called Enfield at a truck. Stop Gas Station. Which for those of you. Who are familiar with the geography of Halifax's essentially at the airport. So as as this getting closer I would. I don't think it's A. It's a stretch to suggest that people living in listening to us in h. r. m. were growing more and more concerned that this individual was traveling on on the major highway that leads into into HR. I'm wondering about the the community itself and how it's dealing with not knowing anything You know obviously it's a. It's an anxious time anyway. You know well the the community. There's dribs and drabs. That are coming out. We learned yesterday. Obviously that There was an RCMP officer. That was killed who was very involved in her community that That one is is hitting home with a lot of people. We also learned today that two nurses that were working up. There were killed a couple that were corrections. Officers were killed a couple that owned a propane business up. There were also Listed as the casualties Nova Scotia our morning and and It was interesting that this being the pandemic that we're in and Also not being able to gather in groups over five and having distinct meters apart. It it It hit dead center of the The provincial announcement today on on From the Premier and from the medical officer of Health on the covert situation where they had to come out and tell people that you know. It's it's awful and we need to mourn and you need to reach out and we need to support people but we also have to abide by the rules so that we don't start to spread. Cova more than it's being spread so that on top of all of the other things that are bad with this nation is is compounding things. I think yeah I was Gonna ask what people are doing to kind of connect with one another because I know the can't come together to mourn and you know speaking of the last thing that happened in in our city and Toronto When you had the van attack a couple of years ago people came together and you know would lay flowers in gathering groups and it helped the city. And what do you do virtually to to Kinda replace that while there are people that are trying to come up with solutions for that? There's a there's a virtual vigil being planned now for Friday I don't know what the form of that's going to be if it's going to be a gigantic zoom Conference or how. The technology is going to work with that. I can tell you though that today. people were outside Trying to stay two meters. Apart and they ringed a road that comes into a an rcmp detachment not necessarily in that area just south of the city while still part of the city in upper ten. Talen ED during a shift change for the RCMP at our CPA headquarters in Dartmouth. There is a flag that they've posted on the fence in front of the RCMP detachment and There wasn't a lot but there were a number of people that have been placing flowers at that site. I don't know if you remember when had the shootings in Moncton The could that police station became just absolutely inundated with flowers and You know it it at least at this point. It hasn't happened here because people are trying to degree of as the best they can but they know that. We're all still subject to social distancing rolls before I let you go. How are you guys? And how's the province doing your city doing and what comes next. What are you guys need in in the coming days After this I said it earlier today to my crew. Here is that You know we've always told everybody that Nova Scotia's are made of a strong stock and I think that we are made if a strong stock and I think that the Nova Scotian will Once they get past the initial shock of this whole whole event and And they get at least a chance to to start to figure out what this was all about and get a chance for to at least process at I think that you'll see them. Come together in In droves to support the families that are going to be impacted by this or that already are impacted by this moving forward I think that answers will probably help. I think that You know if we get here breezes motivations some sort of I don't know if closures the right word but Some sort of reason why I think that's the biggest question people want to know is why and UH hopefully the police investigation will tell us that. It's going to change the province. I don't think there's any doubt of that. I don't know if if we can go as far and say that we lost our innocence on Sun. Saturday but It certainly will have an impact on this province Probably forever. Because I mean these things don't happen in Nova Scotia Right. This is you know we're we're we're Nova Scotia. This is where everybody is safe in. Everybody is you know it's small. It's this isn't the big city there is not all the big city Troubles that come with that but I think that I think people are are GONNA be forever changed moving forward. Well thanks for this down. I hope you guys Hope we all get the answers. We want you guys stay safe sending your lots of love from the rest to Canada. Thanks during.

"When people like to sleep with their windows open the doors unlocked in many parts of Nova Scotia. Some people questioning that now. There are still so many questions about what happened here. Cbc News reporter Brett Raskin is imported. Pick he joins me to explain what we know so far. But the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history. I'm Jamie Porcelain. This is from Brown. Hi Brett thank you so much for making the time to speak with me today. I know this is such a busy and really hard day for you. Hi Jamie No. Thanks for taking the time. Well I want to start today by talking about. Some of the victims are remembering some of the people who so tragically lost their lives. Here we heard at the top of the show the fiddling of seventeen year old. Emily talk and can you tell me a little bit about her and her family. I understand that on Monday. You essentially ran into a family friends. Yeah so this happened at the police checkpoints here in in quarterback Where this entire shooting first began and so I was just doing my reports for TV and radio and somebody pulled up Hopped out of their car walked over to a tree and she had a printed out image of the three members of the talk family and she took this clear packing tape and began Wrapping it around the trunk of a tree and taping this image of the family to this tree and leaks and flowers at At the base of the tree as well so I spoke with her briefly and she said you know she knew the Family. She was close with the family and just wanted to. Do you know something to honor their memory. And now that they've been killed in this mass killing right. It's it's so hard to imagine right now. What the families of the victims and also the community which is so tight. Knit is going through right now but my sister and race them amazing trialled true so nice. Oh kind kumble. She's very humble. She wasn't sure she wanted to do welding music for school to talk about some of the other victims here so tell me about. Heidi Stevenson for example the RCMP CONSTABLE. Twenty-three year member of the force. Yeah she'll she I got a a veteran of the force. She was a mother of two she was married and she was At one point d-actually the the media representative And spoke with the media earlier on in her career in public assistance if they saw anybody or anything that was a little unusual or out of the ordinary as well so She was Well known and well liked and I haven't really thought about the fact that she does that injured or killed right of duty. I thought it was really cool. That you're just helping. The city stays safe. She kind of acted sometimes like a second mothers for me so I was at swim meets and she would always be there for me and she was really hoping to all the time unfortunately. The only time that I had direct contacts with her was was when she was dead Because I came across the scene in Schubert Avenue over Scotia so there's a number of different communities in fact there's at least sixteen crime scenes that are here are going to be having to comb through and so. I was at one yesterday. Sunday right. So is Sunday the day of the manhunt And so there is kind of an overpass And one of the many interactions that this shooter had with police or with the public happened there and keep in mind that we have heard that he was driving the vehicle almost identical to an RCMP cruiser He was allegedly wearing clothing. That was almost identical to Rcn team uniform. We did not realize that with them until we saw four police cars behind him. He looked like he was okay to be honest like he didn't look like he was in any type of ice. And so what people saw in the witnesses that I spoke with This gentleman who lives just above this this overpass sh. He basically saw what seemed like two police cars One of them cut the other one off. There was a minor collision and then the officer is got out and began opening fire at one another. I can't even imagine what looks like. I knew something bad had really happened. well I heard two shots as we come up and we are turning to get to safety. Police officer is running towards the burnings police car. My heart just went. Draw to my stomach. Because I'm thinking something wrong with us partners and the way he loved I could like I just. My heart went out to him but I knew we had to get to safety. Costal Stevenson was killed in this shootout The witness that I spoke with said that what he called. Swat team or the emergency response team showed up in their armored vehicle and began dragging her away from what had then become two vehicles on fire because one of the recurring themes in this tragedy is just the amount of metal fire. The amount of vehicles that were burned. The amount of houses that were burned again allegedly lit fire by the shooter. The suspect in this case Mike McKay lives import. Pack the police cars and we noticed that there's a house fire and then there were two more fires after that some explosions gas tanks propane tanks and and what have you then with no firefighters. You know to be seen because of the other you know activity that we were unaware of at the time and so when I showed up on scene. I could see the burnt-out wreckage from these two vehicles and from the perspective that I had from this gentleman's law and the witness that I spoke with overlooking again there's interchange I could see a constable Stevenson's body what I then found out later found out Wisconsin Stevenson's body underneath a sheet. I could see her boots and she was there. As part of this as part of the scene. It just sounds like an awful awful scene.

"Sites from those outlying areas of the region there are fewer ambulances avail- available global to respond to other causes so I was stopped in a hospital hallway last year by a volunteer firefighter from the north side. Who told me some horrific stories stories about having to respond to calls of L.? Volunteer firefighter getting to an accident scene calling for an ambulance and having to wait for over an hour for an ambulance to come and meanwhile he's watching somebody. He knows. Get sicker and in one case somebody. He knew very well died because the ambulance wasn't able able to get there in time because they were busy transporting other people and because they were tied up at the regional hospital because when the emergency department is overcrowded you also end up with ambulance off late. Load it delays. So I've gone up there and seen as many as eight ambulances waiting outside the emergency department to offload their patients and they're not on the road picking patients up. The other issue is is a shortage of doctors as I understand it. So how did Nova Scotia get to this point. Well Canada there is a Canada wide shortage of emergency physicians nations. So that's a starting point Nova Scotia Under a previous. MVP Government opened the physicians contract and took back things that had previously been negotiated associated that was agreed to by the physicians because we were presented with a catastrophic picture and we were promised that the other health unit unions would be presented presented with similar options. Nobody else had that happen to them. As it subsequently happened and the other health unions were given better deals. That was the first nail in the coffin. the current liberal government has had a very confrontational approach towards physicians Our last contract are The increases were zero percent zero percent point five percent one percent over the four years of the contract So we actually lost ground in terms of compensation and we are now. The lowest is paid in Canada with the highest rates of taxation. It does not make for attractive practice environment Particularly for young person coming out with a high level of debt So in addition to that when the Nova Scotia Health Authority was formed. There was a two year period when virtually no recruiting went on. So we've always had a fairly high turnover of physicians positions in this area. Two years of recruiting led to a lot of outgo but no inflow and so we got further and further behind we. We should mention that the province says they've made an agreement with doctors and increase of one hundred and thirty five million dollars or adding sixteen new seats to train more doctors at Dalhousie but there are differing opinions. There was one Dr Rod Wilson who who tweeted about this and said you know that there are too many essentially emergency departments in Nova Scotia. Should the province be looking at other less less costly solutions. Well it is possible that some of those smaller emergency departments should close or should Be Reevaluated and possibly changed to a different model Cape Breton has a high concentration of emergency departments in the Sydney area. Because historically this was a coal mining area and each of those communities that has a hospital headed act coal mines and needed to have an hour entity are readily accessible because at any moment they could have multiple injured heard people coming in from an industrial accident and the Sydney area had an active steel mill. which at one point was the largest steel mill in the British Empire? All of that is gone but the hospital infrastructure structure remains but when people don't have any other access to healthcare there's one walk in clinic in the Sydney area which operates for about three hours a day and doesn't operate some days of the week and there are hybrid senator people with out family doctors and they don't have anywhere else to go at the emergency department so if you close those local emergency departments here effectively cutting those people off from ready access to healthcare and they have to travel to Sydney? There's not very good public public transportation down here and a lot of those people are older and not comfortable driving on the highways to get to Sydney so it creates a very difficult A situation in the outlying communities Dr Fraser. We have to leave it there. Thank you for your time. Thank you very much for having me on Dr Margaret. Phaser is the president of the Cape Breton Medical Staff Staff Association. She's a family doctor who also works in Ers in Sydney Nova Scotia. She was in our Sydney studio now. Dr David Urbach has researched outcomes in large versus small. Rural hospitals. Is Chief of surgery at women's College Hospital and a professor at the University of Toronto's departments of surgery and health and policy management and evaluation. He joins us in our Toronto Studio. Hi Dr Rebecca Morning Good Morning. What's your reaction to what you just heard from? Dr The frazier. I think. What you've heard is a Very comprehensive description of a complicated problem which is how to provide appropriate services to people people In Canada particularly those people who live in rural and remote communities It's not a simple problem. If it was simple problem we'd have a solution for it But like a lot of problems in healthcare. It's quite complex and Often there is no single solution. That's practical and easy easy to implement and we have to be very creative and have to work hard in a number of different directions to figure out how to appropriately provide services. We're GONNA try to unpack some of those complicated aspects Savitt but how common our er closures across the country beyond Nova Scotia. They seem to be a big problem. Particularly Nova Scotia The issues regarding in care in these smaller rural and remote hospitals take different forms in different parts of the country in in the western provinces It's largely really an issue of providing a surgical services and small hospitals and providing obstetric care particularly operative delivery Syrian section as opposed to emergency department closures. Hoosiers in other provinces. It's a question of how to keep Small in rural hospitals open issues around consolidation and closure of entire hospitals hospitals Whereas in Nova Scotia Cape Breton it seems to be an issue of how to keep the emergency departments open and functioning Given that they don't have an appropriate complement of doctors. There's to be able to stop them appropriately. Let's talk about that word. And what it means. In the hospital context consolidation so consolidation Were generally refers to Either closing or combining a number of smaller hospitals and grouping them onto a larger hospital corporation Under you're single governance or closing some of these smaller hospitals altogether often. It's done for the purpose of efficiency because it can be quite expensive to run several independent pendant hospitals all with their own Governance as well as their own inventory procurement all these things so you get efficiencies and economies of scale scale and sometimes it just becomes too Practically difficult to keep a very small and isolated hospital open particularly in a modern era of healthcare we're healthcare becomes increasingly increasingly complex expensive and dependent on technologies That sometimes very impractical to have in some very small hospitals spitaels you hinted at this earlier deliveries obstetrics When you think about the patients that are affected by these kinds of closures in rural Canada the most I I think of maternal health and pregnant women? Tell me a bit about what you're seeing on that front so And again this is A bigger problem problem in in the western provinces but because of some of the complexities and providing obstetric. Care too high risk women who may require fire operative delivery or Caesarean section. Those services may not be readily available in some of these various small and remote hospitals. And what is happening sometimes are women in those communities and these are often indigenous first nations communities towards the end of the pregnancy. We'll have to leave and move to a larger community with the the regional hospital where there are these services available And essentially have to live there for a period of several weeks away from their homes or communities their family which is again highly disruptive instructive to To those communities hand a family structures aware generational renewal is is quite important as well as being around a familiar surroundings. Are there other patients that are most at risk in these kinds of closures apart from the pregnant women so with that with that particular problem staffing small hospitals and and the issue here is having Surgeons or obstetricians ends in east attests who can keep operating rooms running which can be challenging and very small communities in addition to Women who are pregnant the other Big issue is emergency surgery so there will be people in some very remote communities. Who are you know hours away from another regional hospital who develop emergency problems? uh-huh that may require treatment in a in an operating room or an intensive care unit or some other very technologically we Highly supported environment and being able to adequately staff those hospitals with all the people in technologies. That that you need Can Be quite challenging so providing emergency surgical services like appendectomies for example or Patients with You know Complicated complicated fractures or other types of emergency conditions can be quite tricky in that really underlines the issue that certainly the obvious reasons why emergency rooms are important but there other things that people may not consider about how critical emergency room can be to an overall structure of hospital. Yeah so emergency rooms. Or you know if we can broaden the discussion ways of providing urgent care to communities which may involve an emergency room but could involve things like urgent care centers? There's other types of consolidated acute care departments that I think Dr Fraser was alluding to as well are critical for communities particularly in a lot of areas of Canada. Candida where we do know that. A fairly large proportion of the population doesn't have access to a Family physician O on a on a a constant basis and and that number varies from region to region. But we do know. This is a big problem Primary Care is critical in the Canadian. Health System. Particularly strong relation based Prime relationship based primary care and for those patients who don't have access to a primary care physician having having access to these types of urgent care centers are walking Clinics can be critical for them to be able to get health services when they need them just in the last couple of minutes. We have left. How how small is too small? The reality is there might be some communities they can't just can't support any are. Yeah and it's a good question There there are various definitions of what these small communities are. Typically people think of smaller communities as communities with populations of less than twenty five or thirty thousand people and are fairly fairly remote from another larger population centres. Say Half an hour an hour away so the the question of how small is too small it was a very good one You know the challenge is how do you provide services to people where they live and You know the the the the options will vary depending on the problems and I think we have to be very creative particularly because Canada is is very large landmass. There's a lot of remote populations that don't have easy access to these larger metropolitan areas. And we do have to think very creatively just before we go some fixes. Some pilot programs are in the works. Yes so there's A lot of different ideas There are some concepts of how to Train Lean and attract physicians. Who will be happy to work in some of these communities There are strategies around training. nurse practitioners and other alternate care providers to be able to provide a lot of these services Telemedicine and virtual care can be very helpful in providing People in these remote areas access.

"nova scotia" Discussed on The Current

"From the December twenty twenty thirty dishing out the current. I sat there for almost five hours. I think and one of the nurses came out Uh and said the doctor will not be seeing any more patients for closed now. I I really couldn't believe it. It was very shocking. That's Greg Macleod. He's from New Waterford Nova Scotia. The fifty seven year old went to the emergency room at the Glee Spe hospital last year because he thought he had shingles but after being told the Er was closed he had to drive twenty five minutes to the next closest er at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. I had to go to a different hospital and then there was a wait there as well and I was also told. I should've never been even sitting outside in the Er with other people with this condition and it did turn out to be shingles. That was my introduction into the problems and so many people with the doctor. They have nowhere to go. They have to go to the R.. And recently I went to the regional regional emergency room on the weekend because I couldn't get hold of my doctor. I sat there for six hours and then I left and I sat beside the lady. That was there for twelve all hours. And she had to be maybe in her seventies Greg Macleod is certainly not alone in his experience with Nova Scotia emergency rooms last week. A report support from the provincial government confirmed the problem is widespread though communities such as glaze Bay are hurting more than others. The new report shows emergency room closure Hours jumped sixty percent in the last fiscal year and the glaze spe healthcare facility was open just thirty three percent of the time. Dr Margaret Fraser. Razer is the president of the Cape Breton Medical Staff Association. She's a family doctor who also works in emergency rooms in Sydney Nova Scotia. She joins us now from our studio studio in Sydney. Hello to you Dr Fraser. Good Morning Neil. How similar is Greg McLeod's experienced who what you're seeing Nova Scotia emergency rooms? Oh Ah every word he said I understood exactly where he was coming from Unfortunately in glade north Sydney in new Waterford we have had to adopt a model. Where at a certain point there is a cut off and the physician doesn't see any more patients who have triage and there are told to go to other emergency departments because as some of our physicians were ending their shifts at six PM and having to stay until midnight to clean up and take care of the patients who had already registered so they adopted up to the system that was being used on the mainland? The Kaaba quit emergency department and So that has unfortunately led to some people being told after they waited waited for hours That they will have to go somewhere else the weights at the regional hospital with the increasing number of closures that we're seeing in our community. Emergency departments governments have skyrocketed. Our triage numbers have skyrocketed. We are seeing Thousands more patients coming in through our doors than we did at comparable Twelve month period last year. So we've release even an uptick in the numbers. We don't have any additional space and we don't have any additional title staff to deal with those people so unfortunately it's making for some very long wait times for the less acute patients and let's start from from a doctor's perspective we're certainly going to talk about patients. Nations says while. But what is it like in that situation you've been describing and Mr McLeod was describing to be a doctor in Nova Scotia emergency rooms right now. Let's extremely stressful bill. Because you're constantly thinking what is waiting in my waiting room. That shouldn't be waiting. who is out there? Who may be getting sicker? Who may decide to go home and and come to harm? Because they've decided to go home. We know that we have had people go home and die. We know that we have had people go home and come back more acutely Lee Il. Who if we had been able to see them? Twenty four hours previously would not have required an ICU. Stay for example or who may have had a better outcome if they they had been seen during that period of the illness. But who simply couldn't wait any longer who you know became tired. Who became who? Who suffered suffered more acute pain and felt they simply had no alternative but to go home and try another day and that does lead to harms to the patients? So you're constantly thinking about that. The emergency department is chaotic chaotic. So you're always there's always a pressure to try and work faster and there's always a concern that because of that pressure you're going to miss something you're going to be a little too short with the patient And get a complaint so always at the back of your head there. Is that pressure to move faster. And there is that concern about what is in the waiting room. What kinds the stories are you hearing from the people on the other side the patients? Well I I do know of a case where a person chose to drive from Sydney to deck which says about an hour's drive from Sydney to go to the emergency department there with chest pain because they did not want to wait at the regional and then had to be rushed back to Sydney in an ambulance Lights and sirens all the way over Kelly's mountain Because they were in fact having a heart attack I do know of a case of a person who was around my age in their fifty s who came in with chest pain but because they had no accute changes on their ekg because we do do an ekg for everybody who triage us was sent out to the waiting room and and suffered a cardiac arrest or short time later It's devastating for the staff when that happens. It's devastating for the patient families because it's hard to explain why somebody who was us as we now know having heard attack was sent out to sit in the waiting room and die so it's heartbreaking to watch these things happening tiny anya. Penny is the senior director of critical care and emergency programs of care at the Nova Scotia Health Authority. WanNa play what she told our colleagues in Nova Scotia about out the message. They have for people in rural areas. I would say that you know the emergency services section in Nova Scotia's you never closed. We've got an excellent nine one one service. We've got eight one one. We fully live telemedicine across the province. You know in the sea so there's the nighttime model from a physician or from a paramedic and nurse model better. Are there to to see people and I. I would say that when the ease are temporarily closed those services are still available entrance I other hospitals are always option options. That is staggeringly different From what I'm hearing from what you are saying. What Greg Macleod described? How adequate are these options for patients? they they are grossly inadequate It's very glib answer from the health department to say that one can always call an ambulance and call nine one. One that comes with a cost both to the patient and to the system so for the patient the ambulance transfer is a direct cost to them although I understand that he h s will work out Billing ailing options with patients who can't pay and they will never refuse to transport somebody who has previously not paid a bill But you know that doesn't mean that you're going to have collection agents calling you..
