"Yeah, exactly. Just the engineering stuff. I think most of their staff have ended up being on customer support operations compliance, things like that. But they were always bragging about a really small engineering team that didn't make sense to a lot of other operators in this space. So let's also now talk about some of the big ripple effects from all of this. I guess drama and this big collapse obviously this week we did see BlockFi, filed for bankruptcy. That was pretty much expected. What do you think is the significance of the bankruptcy of BlockFi? BlockFi was on the ropes in a way that we kind of expected this was going to happen. The FTX lifeline was at best questionable. The deal was not good for them in any capacity. I think with BlockFi and Voyager, we once again see small retail users who don't understand DeFi, get screwed over. And we see large conservative investors who wanted to get exposure to this space, yet absolutely destroyed. Canadian pension funds in Ontario and Quebec invested in FTX Voyager BlockFi and Celsius because regulators here told them that holding tokens and doing on chain DeFi was too risky to put a teacher's pension fund in. And that was four bankruptcies back to back. Those investors are gone for the next decade. There's no way we are getting them back. No teachers union in the world is going to keep in place the investors who want to take that gamble again, not happening. And we've also scored a lot of retail investors who only had a few $100 to put into this space to begin with. And the pain from that will leave a bad taste in their mouth. We've done irreparable brand damage to this space in two key sectors. going to take us ages to ever try and rebuild even a fraction of that. Yeah, I definitely agree here because a lot of these people were, I think once you probably didn't fully understand the products, one bit of news that sort of been hovering and hasn't reached a conclusion is that genesis, the crypto lender, which is a subsidiary of DCG, is having financial difficulty due to the fact that it had made a $2.3 billion loan to three AC. This was obviously months ago. Due to, I guess, the continued fallout and other events, genesis may have to file for bankruptcy. It might even pull DCG down with it, and it was curious how likely it was that you thought genesis would actually have to file. And I think the moment that we saw some statements from them, I became worried about both genesis and actually digital currency group at large. I don't think that contagion is done yet. I would not be surprised if we see them move to sell some major assets from their books to kind of mitigate this damage and hopefully short it up enough. But we saw this kind of progressive rollout of them saying how much damage there was from, hey, we had no exposure to, oh, there's a gap here. And then we finally got numbers around it. I think they took a very hard hit in a hard environment, and I would not be surprised if they have to sell down a lot of their venture book or key assets, whether that's their steak and Luna or foundry or something like coin desk. I could see them liquidating to try and get the capital to survive this. Oh, wow. Okay, so it seems like you are then pretty optimistic. So do you feel that there's a worry for DCG as well? I don't know. I think they have to be able to shore up the cash. And when I run the numbers of what valuation of assets I would give them looking outwards, I'm a hard press for them to find enough cash if they do have to fill that $1 billion hole just because so many things are illiquid right now, so much of their venture portfolio would be hard to sell. A lot of the liquid assets that they hold are very thin market books. So they're not going to get really good execution right now. They can probably come out swinging. I think the worst case scenario is they liquidate almost everything else and sell a bunch of equity in the parent company in order to maintain grayscale because that's really the golden goose. Oh wow. Okay, so in a moment we're going to talk about what some of those moves might be, but first a quick word from the sponsors who make

"And what about the impact on the baby? Well, that's an excellent question. Well, legally, surrogacy violate. The children's rights because children have the right to access their identity. So they have a right to access their genetic identity their origin that's what is in the law. But in reality, it's not possible because of the anonymity of the egg donation. And also, one of the researchers that I listened to, she said, there is an experience in Sweden. They have made a registry of this case was sperm donors. But there is not a lot of inquiry when children come adult to this registry of sperm donors. And so the question is, do the parents really tell the children? But the truth about their birth. And projected not appear to give the responsibility to the parent to say the truth to their children and some research they are like, it's not sure that they always do it. They claim they will do it. But when it comes to time, do they do it? So children are deprived of their genetic origin. And mother and baby interaction is crucial for development, it's crucial for development of self regulation. It's crucial for development of executive function. So all of these very important development. It's taken away because the baby is taken away from his mother and the baby doesn't read contract. So for the baby, the experience is like losing their mother. And this perspective is never really taken into account. It's like the client, the story of the baby, begins with them. You know, better baby is to re begins doing the pregnancy and the birth. And there is no breast feeding. That's one more thing. That's never talked about. Yeah, and that's unhealthy for the mother and the baby a yeah, because it's mutually beneficial. And so the mother she knows her baby is alive, but her body thinks to be instead, you know? I mean, to me, it sounds like it's part of what I see as this trend of people believing that they can sort of exist outside of nature. That they can use technology to resolve any problem that they have. And people tend not to really think about the consequences of doing that kind of thing. Well, and it's also come back to our relationship with reality. In this project at law, there is a lot of change of language. So it's personal will give us birds. Person who is pregnant, it's even it's not even maternity leave. It's live for births, you know? So, and I came across some clients they made the site for a surrogate mother in Quebec and they say, oh, she's an anti. She's an aunt, but I know what an aunt is. And aunt is different from what a mother is, you know? She had a C section. She says she has postpartum depression. There is a very moving video of her crying when her baby is going back is being taken away by the client and that's not an aunt tier..

"So for example, it didn't say that surrogate mother would have had the experience of maternity before. There is so that it could be their first child that they carry for somebody else. There is no insurance in case the mother dies. The client can seize the court if the mother does not give consent after the birth. So the law writes that the mother needs to give consent between 7 day after the birth and up to 30 day after the purse. No sooner than 7 days and up to 30, she can change it up to 30 days. But the clients can still seize the court. So this has been highlighted to the government. And this is will the court rule in favor of the surrogate mother if she doesn't have a lot of money, you know, she's very vulnerable. So that's a big concern. And there is no prior assessment of parental capacities of the clients. So that's one concern. So surrogates in Quebec are not paid. Is that right? I think that's the law in Canada, so I'm assuming that's also the law in Quebec. Yes, so that's one other thing that's not written in the law project is that we don't know what they will be able to be reimbursed and what they won't be able to be reimbursed. So we don't know the details of so it's compensation. It's not called payment. There is a loophole of the federal law with foreign clients. But the surrogate mother will receive a lot of benefits. So maternity leave expands composition like if they can not work, they can have composition. And even when advocate of surrogate, when researchers said it can be a great way to go back to school. So we are like, don't we have good and we have better way for a mother to go back to school than putting their body available for others? Why? So they're saying that's a good way for women to go back to school because they can go on maternity leave and then they have time to go back to school because they're not working full time. Exactly. Exactly. It's not ideal. That's not the ideal circumstances for going back to school. Exactly. And I think the biggest problem and that was highlighted during the hearing because I've listened to a lot of them. It means that there are no means to enforce the regulation if the conditioner are not met. So for example, if we see a payment or if the mother is under the age of 21, because 21 was like the minimal age, well, what will happen because punishing the parent client is like punishing the child. So this was asked to the government and no answer was really given. So as foreigners, they are ready coming into Canada in Ontario in BC, I have I think it's 45% foreigners in BC in one year and in Ontario as well. There is a significant number of surrogate children that are commissioned by foreigners. And we have several case happening in Quebec. And it's client from France. There are happy with the French language. And also what we have noticed is that France is lenient into arranging the birth certificate when the client go back to France as well. Because there is a lot of pressure there. So we are worried that Quebec will become a very popular destination due to all the public funding that going to that plan to go into surrogacy with this change of law..

"This is very different because Quebec is under the civil code. So the civic code is what is called positive loss. So it's based on principle. And we have two very important principles. One is that human body can not be a commodity, so it's called anticipated in French. And also human dignity. So you can not alienate your own freedom. And these are very important principle and they are in the right and freedom of Quebec. Can I interrupt you for half a second? Sure. You just said you can't alienate your own freedom. Is that what you said? Yeah. It's called human dignity. Okay, and what does that mean? Can you talk a little bit more about that? Well, in the context of surrogates, is that women design contracts and so I don't want to go into too much data into the project of law that is when you sign a contract of surrogate, it alienates human dignity, Italian energy owned freedom because when renounce their basic rights, so there are a lot of restrictions that are put in contracts, like some women, they can not engage in certain physical activity. They have to eat certain foods. I mean, pregnancy is a special state in every woman and you can not do everything, but this is contractual. And there is also some contracts that say that women can not speak about their experience because it's a confidential medical information. So they alienate their right to speak about their experience. So that's one of the reasons why the narrative is like a script with regard to surrogacy. So that said in the there is a project of the change of law in Quebec and in that project, we don't know yet what will be allowed in the contract and what will not be allowed in the contract. So we don't know that will be said after with a regular so with a ruling after the law is voted if it is voted. So in 1994, the one article in the civil code was voted in Quebec and it's still the law now is that the contract of surrogacy are not legal. They are not enforceable. They are against public order. And so Quebec clients they're still engaged in surrogates. They go to other province or countries and if they go locally, the children adopted the special consent adoption. So we don't know the numbers of short guesses that are occurring in Quebec. But we came across a number of adoption via special consent and there doesn't seem to be so much of them. So this article, the 541. Might be like a deterrent for now. And so article 5 41 of the civil code of Quebec, says, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it says that Sergei surrogacy contracts are null. So those contracts are not legally binding. Is that correct? That's the situation right now. And Quebec law? Exactly. Exactly. And they are also against public order. Which means they are against the common good. So that the contract between two people, you know, there are certain limitations to where the contract can have. So this contract, they are against public order because one party gets all the benefits and one party gets all the risk. So they are very asymmetrical but totally asymmetrical contract. So this is the current club..

"There you go you are listening to feminist current. I'm Megan Murphy. Surrogacy has become a relatively mainstream practice. Celebrities and those with means, treat surrogacy as a harmless option to aid women who can not or do not wish to carry their own babies or to allow gay couples to have children. Views seem to consider the impact on mother and baby. A new surrogacy Bill in Quebec proposes changes to current legislation that would recognize surrogacy contracts, which are not currently enforceable under Quebec law..

"You know what? I'm gonna go back to poutine. Because I think they've now perfected it to that they have these variations of it now. Oh yeah, I've had turkey and cranberry poutine and barbecue beef poutine. Yeah, and you were just kind of like, that is just not that should just not be done to French fries. Right? It's really the barbecue beef, I particularly enjoyed actually. Pulled pork actually was quite exciting. We really like the pulled pork one. But you know, that was New Brunswick, so they go crazy. Yeah. Or no, sorry, that was PEI, but it's the barbecue. The turkey and cranberries was New Brunswick. Yeah, so I think that's kind of one of those things that you just sort of say. No. No, it's just. I'm okay with it, but I know that there's people that people I have traveled with who are Americans who are like this is just not cool. They're purists. They're cheese. French fries. And I'm like, no, no, it's got to have the gravy so the cheese curds melt. Other than that, it does sound really bad. So that's it, yeah. That's mine. Excellent and if you had to summarize the Mara team's and so first of all, I keep saying maritime or Mara teams, is it plural or signal? And this is the wrong time that I should have asked earlier.

"We saw right whales, fin whales, minke, it really is a whale watching Paradise. It is the most fun. And it is really the best thing to do. I recommend it highly. We had a great time. It's definitely a highlight. From tadousac, all you're gonna do is you're gonna go down on the north shore to Quebec City. So you'll go through Charles levoir and beautiful another beautiful region, a different region in Quebec, but you've completed your whole tour of Quebec her team. The only thing we haven't done is the magdalen islands, but it's gonna have to be another time, Chris, we're gonna have to go with different time. Yeah. But I hope that kind of helps you understand what the region is. It is a huge region to large region for sure. You're going to go for the views. You're going to go for the water. You're going to go to a relax. You're going to do a lot of hiking. There are zipline. There are high ropes course there is via ferrata. There is parasailing. There's kayaking. Anything that you want to do outdoors, you can do in Quebec 13. The only thing that I'm a little disappointed about is you mentioned the marine mammal interpretation center. I thought it was going to learn to speak whale like Dory from Finding Nemo, but then put it past the event somebody would teach you in that place. It's pretty amazing. Yeah, it's really great. That would have just clenched it. You would have placed it, yeah. But when we're in this region of Quebec in general, what do we need to know? French. Besides that. Well, besides fridge. I think what you need to know is at this point in time, we are still looking at COVID passports. So in order to be inside a restaurant, anything that's enclosed, you will still need a vaccination passport. That is required in Quebec at this point in time. And do we need a Canadian one or can we use our for those of us who were from south of the border can we show our CDC card? Absolutely, your CDC card. Yeah, absolutely. I think it's really anything that you would get from your state or wherever it is..

"So it's the most traveled lighthouse in the world. It went from where it is now to Quebec City and then back again. But I just love it. That was one of my favorite ones actually. It was really, really cute, I really thought that was an interesting one. So as you're driving along, one of the things that's really beautiful is just there's lots to see, but it's a very relaxing drive. You're there to just sort of take it in, stop at any site like any vistas that you can view just take Lauren's seaway. You can whale watch even from because the whales come in and out of the saint Lawrence seaway, so sometimes if you're lucky enough, you won't see some whales for sure. But your next stop is going to be Matan. So my town, there's also another lighthouse, which is quite close to there called levada for the Martin lighthouse, and the unique thing about this lighthouse is that it's all it's a wooden lighthouse. It's completely made out of wood. The other ones are all made out of steel. And this wooden one, what's also really pretty about it is that it's red. For the most part a lot of the lighthouses are white and then they have red tops to them. But this one is just all red and it has some really beautiful has a little small BC and once again really, really fun. But what I want to tell you about Rio Matan is like first of all, it's a French Canadian chain. So as far as I can tell or remember, I don't think there's any other hotels outside of the province of Quebec, but it was super modern. It actually reminded me of European hotels that I've stayed in. Ultra tomorrow right on the water, big, beautiful. It wasn't a sandy beach. It was like a big rock beach, but absolutely beautiful, but the highlight of that day was the restaurant called cargo. It had the most spectacular seafood platter I've ever had in my entire life. Like it was out of this world. So I am a foodie by nature, my father is a retired or was a hotel. He's passed no, but he was a chef. So I was very fortunate to have some really amazing food and really appreciate really good food. So I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. Rarely will hear me saying really fantastic things about restaurant, but I love dark lace. So it's a real hotel mattan. Is that hotel? So you're all arrested up. You've had a great meal and the next day you're gonna keep going south. And not far away is one of the loveliest places that you'll ever see if you are a gardener. So this is the meti or the renford gardens. So elsie ran forward had a lodge there. She had a house, and she loved to garden and hundreds of miles kilometers away from any sort of garden supplies..

"Sound which unbelievable of all of these birds. This spell, but just in general, I think it's really, really well done and just one of those nature things that it's well worth the hike up and well worth being able to see the colony of gannets. It's just amazing to really really beautiful. So now we can do one of two things. You can either stay in person rock or you're just going to head out about an hour away to gaspe to the city of gas phase. So metropolitan, if you're renting a place or you're an Airbnb or you're staying or I'm going to give you a more interesting choice. My suggestion to you is that maybe you would consider a ready to camp at 40 on. So for you all is a national park at park skinner that park. Okay, right by gaspe. And it is spectacular. Like spectacular breathtaking, absolutely beautiful. But you find yourself in a car, you've flown in from California. And you have left all of your camping gear at home, Chris. All of it. Right. That's not a problem. They have ready to camp. It's called preto camp. I'm sure I'm saying that wrong, but it's a ready to camp and it's they have yurts. They have cabins and they have these really unique pods also once again, gonna have to go to that unique accommodations in Quebec. I already bookmarked it. But for sure, it's a lot of fun because they provide everything. And one of the reasons they have this is because a lot of the tours that they get are Europeans. So they get a lot of Europeans come in and they want to have that full outdoor experience. And this lets them do that. So they have dishes. They have cutlery. They have bedding. You don't even have to put up a tent. Some of them have tent materials and then sort of an enclosure. But some of them are sort of like cabins. So there you go. That's my suggestion to you if you wanted to come up and have that full nature experience. I would say try that at one of the national parks. So fully on also has some heritage buildings there. It's got the cutest little grocery general grocer there and during the summer they have people who dress up and stuff like that. So that's kind of fun..

"To audible for sponsoring this episode of amateur traveler. But yeah, so anyways, let's go back. So we are going to start heading up to Paris. We just sort of preliminary talk you and I Chris. I was trying to explain to you the importance of rock. So Percy rock is one of those iconic images that you would see everywhere. In every Canadian tourism board sign. You're going to see Canadian mountains, right? Or video or advertisement, you're going to see Canadian mountains and the rockies out west. You're going to see the CN Tower, you're going to see old Quebec. One of the last things you're going to see besides the maritimes isn't going to see parasite rock. So parasail rock is just a huge structure with an arch in the middle of it. You used to be actually able to visit it. But now it is a protected space, and you can only take a cruise sort of like a cruise from per se, and you can cruise around it. But it's very restricted, but it's one of those iconic iconic images that when we think of Quebec and when we think of Canada, you think very much of para save rocks. So it's really good stop for a couple of reasons. One, some of the best seafood that I ever had was in a little restaurant that was right on the dock. I wish I could remember it, but it was like 5 years ago. But it was so fantastic. I still remember the seafood being really amazing. The other thing is that they also have just as you're getting close to there. They have the parsa UNESCO global geopark. So this gear park has this breathtaking and I'm talking, well, breathtaking or will take your breath away. Suspended platform. 200 meters off of a cliff. And it is a glass bottom platform. Okay. It is absolutely spectacular. It's a little scary if you don't like the look down. But the view is towards per se rock, and then you have a really beautiful view of the saint Warren seaway at that point in time. Yeah. So one of those must see things when you're in Paris. The other thing that I'm going to suggest that you do without reservation that I absolutely have to on my very first trip to commit Larry team was we took a boat to bonaventure island. So even though it's toughness in bonaventure, it's once again a provincial park. But when you get to bonaventure island, you actually just hike there's a beautiful view you get to see per se. You get to see the mainland also. But as you hike all the way up to the top of the summit, you're going to see one of the largest colonies of gannets. In the world. There's a 116 thousand gadgets. On this rock and also there's over 200,000 seabirds all told. So there's 11 different species of seabirds that you can see, but the hike up is there's a viewing area up there. They now have like a restaurant and rest area. But the birds are absolutely everywhere. So when you do your boat crews, they actually take you around bonaventure island because it is on the east east coast. And they are all on the cliffs. They're all hanging all of their nests and everything are all on the cliffs, and so it is really a sight to see. I've never seen that. I traveled a bit, but I had that was something that was completely new.

"And they actually cater to snowmobiler. Okay. So I was even actually just looking to see and they're fully booked. January February already booked because they're aficionados, like motorcyclists would be to have these beautiful and they have beautiful trails in a private forest. So I think what I'm saying is there are things that you can do that involve skiing. There are ski hills also in this region. And you can go skiing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice fishing. So a lot of the things that you may be able to find are more privately than they are sort of just as a national park or a provincial park. And if I don't have my own snowshoes or snowmobile. Am I going to be left out? Are they going to have to provide one? You will not, especially at the marine Volga. They have specific packages that are just that provide you that. But you can actually just drive up to its uphill pretty steep hill. The highlight of us going. So this is an going to domain Valentine was driving up the hill and it is pretty steep and stuff. But then all of a sudden there was a moose that was just standing there in the middle of the road. It's a point where my husband is to me and he goes, all right, yeah, we're here. We're in the wilderness. We are in rural Quebec, right? And she just we just slowed down. She just kind of looked at us. Walk back into the forest and that was the end of it, but it was just really, really spectacular. So we loved it because we had our own cabin. They're large. It was fully equipped, so you don't have to worry about bringing anything, which is really great. You can there's many different and unique places that you can stay in Quebec my routine. I actually have a really great blog post about interesting places to stay in Quebec where our team, everything from a replica of like a Santa Maria. Like one of those kind of ships. Okay. Sort of an old shift. They have bio domes. They have a treehouses. Oh my God, that was so amazing. I truly beautiful treehouses. They have some really pods like pods in trees. Like really, really unique places to stay. So definitely I can provide you a list or a link. Sure, we'll link to that from the show notes. Yeah. It's really fun. They kind of try to make it interesting for people to visit. So in rimouski, so as we've stayed overnight, we have the fire pit going. It was absolutely beautiful. We're super relaxed and the next day. We start heading sort of across en route one 32. But we're going to make a quick stop at the first of a couple of lighthouses that I'm going to talk about on this trip. And the first one is point au pair lighthouse and National Historic Site. So at .0.

"And there's also whale watching tours. So whale watching tours are another primary reason that you want to go to this region. So we talked about the culture. We talked about the regions. And I neglected to say at the beginning, another really big attraction of this region is one. It's got a fantastic lighthouse tour. So you can see some of the most it's got 40 different lighthouses. And there's a lighthouse trail. And there's a lot of it's called the lighthouse trail and basically this is what we're taking on this loop around the gas paper Peninsula is a lighthouse trail, but you can also do a whale tour. There's also a whale tour that you can follow. So I have to say Quebec my team, their website is really fantastic and it actually gives you detailed itinerary that we have used to do planning for ourselves. Personally, and they have whale tours. They have lighthouse tours. They have snowmobile tours. So feeling is huge in the winter here. And so they have specific tours that you can take. But that's really super important. Another important reason I'm kind of backtracking them of course. Another important reason to go to Quebec and our team is some of the national parks. It has some of the most beautiful national parks in this country. And something I have to clarify for the listeners, just so that they understand when they're doing this driving. We have our National Park Service is called parks Canada. And then each individual province has their own. They would be state parks for you guys. So you have your national parks. Provincial parks. But in Quebec, they don't call them provincial parks. They call them national parks. So sometimes it can be confusing that it says national park, but in fact, it's just a provincial park. So this goes into a whole set of politics and the use of the French language and the English language..

"If you just put out your hand, your left hand and you're going to look and you're going to separate your thumb from the rest of your fingers and you have your fingers all together. That pretty much is the shape of the province of Quebec. And the region that we're going to go to is the thumb part. And if you look at where your thumb meets the rest of your fingers, that is the saint Lawrence. That's the saint Lawrence seaway. So from the saint Lawrence seaway, you're going to hit the Atlantic and you're going to hit the maritime provinces and all of the eastern seaboard from there. Right? So we can get to this destination specifically. Either through Quebec City and we drive up, or you can actually cross from Maine from Maine, you got to go through New Brunswick and you can do it in two places. You can do it in fort Kent, which is port camp Maine, which is sort of adjacent to edmonston, and that is sort of directly across from Riviera du loop or you're going to go further out and that is going to be the capital, and you will be at point a la Croix in the gas base. So you'll be a little bit sort of further off the gas bay Peninsula. But those are the two ways that you could get so you can either drive in from the United States through Maine, also obviously through New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, all you have to do is you end up on the trans Canada and you just keep going east. You just keep going at least on what we call the 401k or the trans Canada highway, which is the highway that goes right across our country. So those are the sort of two points of entries that we have. So from Quebec City, if we start from Quebec City, we're going to head two hours. I'm going to say sort of northeast is how you are going. And we are going to enter the lower saint Lawrence region or Abbas saint Laurent, which is the beginning of Quebec Martin. You're going to hit a beautiful little village called kamura and it is like a beautiful little picturesque maritime village..

Canadian Provinces Lift COVID Mandates After Trucker Protests
"Man. Freedom wins, Canadian provinces of provinces lift COVID mandates after trucker protests, so four Canadian provinces have moved to lift their COVID-19 restrictions as a massive protest by truckers continued blockades in Ottawa on Wednesday, and that's a paralyzing the capital city, which you guys know, Quebec, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island provinces have all announced plans to eliminate or roll back some or all measures, for instance, Alberta dropped its vaccine passport for places such as restaurants, immediately, and they're getting rid of mask at the end of the month. The moves came this week after a huge strong of truckers shut down
CNN Unfairly Covers Canadian Truckers Protest
"CNN just teed off on these truckers. Listen to this. In our healthy Canada is seeing it second week of protests against COVID restriction, protests that have crippled everyday life there. It started with a group of truckers, angry about vaccine mandates, blocking traffic on January 29th. Over the weekend, more demonstrations sprouted across the country in Vancouver, Toronto, Quebec City, streets are clogged, the honking is incessant and deafening. Many businesses and even some schools can not open. Now the mayor of Ottawa was declaring a state of emergency. Let's get right to CNN's Paula Newton who's live in Otto and Paula. Police have been reluctant to take any major steps to clear the protesters because of fears of escalating matters. Same network cheering on people trashing the streets, causing violence, including deaths during the four months after the death of George Floyd.
Courageous Truckers and the Canadian Convoy for Freedom
"Justin Trudeau, who I think just recently got reelected as prime minister, has been pushing relentlessly, some of the most draconian, some of the most backwards and some of the most unprecedented tyrannical measures when it has come to vaccine mandates, including requiring truckers have to show proof of vaccination coming to and from America. Now, all across Canada, despite the vaccine mandates, despite the mandatory vaccinations, cases are going up. Like crazy, especially in Quebec, where in Quebec, the province of Quebec is where Montreal and Ottawa is, which is auto, I believe is where the business of the Canadian government is done. Toronto is one of the biggest cities in Canada, cases have been going up steadily. So despite this mass vaccination campaign, it's having the opposite intended effect. And Canadian citizens are now. Doing their best impersonation of the American fighting spirit. Canadians are not known for public protests. They're not known for pushing back against tyranny. Canadians, I don't think ever got the credit they deserved. For stepping up and fighting alongside allied forces in World War I, World War II, and many of the wars of the last 50 or 60 years. They have fought against tyranny all across the planet. And now tyranny has come to them. And they're fighting back. There is now something called the freedom rally happening all across Canada. It is truckers that are convoying, they are tens of thousands of trucks are convoying across Canada. I'll read this story right here in canora where the temperature was expected to drop to negative 27 Celsius on Tuesday night, the host of volunteers were preparing to welcome a massive convoy of truckers. About two dozen people could be seen gathered at a community hub downtown, packing boxes of snacks and making sandwiches in a video live stream to Facebook by a supporter of the freedom rally, a convoy of truckers and their supporters that have been making its way this week from British Columbia to Ottawa in a protest against the COVID-19 vaccine
Josh Freed: Florida Feels Like Another Planet Compared With Quebec
"To this. He says, either confession to make, I recently fled Quebec for a week, a refuge from our two curfew and confinement rules. A friend told me about a condo in Florida. My wife and I made a last second decision to briefly escape and work remotely. But the second we landed in Florida, it felt like we'd arrived on another planet. While Quebec is in full confinement mode, Florida is cowboy land, where you barely know COVID's happening. Despite much higher new case and hospitalization rates than candidates. It's lunacy by Canadian standards, but in eye opening experience for starters, everyone's out and about filling bars, restaurants, movies, gems, sports arenas, stores and supermarkets don't require masks. Some cashiers and customers wear them, but not all. Restaurants are fully open. Waiters can choose whether to wear masks, at least half don't. You never friendly America, some customers even shake hands with their waiters before leaving. As you have to say, thanks, I'll have some germs for dessert. It's easy to spot Canadians at restaurants in Florida. We're the ones properly masked and nervously shitting on the terrace, even out in The Rain.

"The toys from our childhood. Stay with us long after we stop playing with them as adults we may lose track of a beloved stuffed animal or a fun action figure but we keep the memories. We remember how safe they made us feel and darkened bedroom or how much fun we had zooming them around the house as if they were flying and yet no matter what we all grow up and leave childish things behind but thanks to one man's impulsive decision. we learned. We don't have to let the past slip away. Not only can we hold onto it but we can share it with the people we love and keep that joy alive for generations to come harry. Colbourn was born in birmingham england in eighteen eighty seven. When he was eighteen years old he moved to ontario canada where he studied to become a veterinarian surgeon upon receiving his degree he settled in winnipeg in manitoba but duty would eventually call. Harry joined the military when world war one became too great to ignore and he hopped a train to quebec for basic training. It was on his way to the camp when he encountered an odd sight. A hunter had killed a black bear and taken. It's cub to sell at a local trading post. Harry gave them twenty dollars and in exchange he took possession of the bear cub which he named winnipeg after the town where he'd been living. His plan was to raise winnipeg for a little while before releasing her back into the forest. Unfortunately harry's plans change very quickly. Winnipeg became a hit among other troops. They played with her and let her stay in the bunks where. She slept under harry's kat that she grew however winnipeg got too big to live indoors and was relegated to outside like a kind of watch bear for the soldiers. The more time they spend together the harder it became for harry to let go. He in winnipeg had grown close. So close that. When he was ordered to go back to england to fight on the western front he refused to release the bear back into the wild he instead snuck her into the ship with the other troops together. They traveled to the second canadian. Infantry brigade camp near stonehenge in england. Harry let her roam free for a while they were there. She enjoyed playing on the large stones but he soon understood that he would have to give her up. There was just no way for winnipeg to go all the way with him to the front

And there's no scientific evidence that ivermectin works unfortunately today no clinical trials of show that works for It is a disease that by the way is used for parasitic infections in humans as well but it's nowhere near the amount of evidence that we can use it in practice. Having said that right there is a need for. I think you know there is a need for oral medications antivirals and that's why the hhs has actually invested three billion dollars in developing these oral easily available. Antivirals could be used. But in the interim you know we've seen the statement from the fda. The american medical association actually associate actually came out and said the same thing today as guidance to physicians who might be prescribing visitors.

Can you start just for the folks like me who haven't really thought about this problem until it reached a critical mass. I guess what are these. Moths that we're talking about today. Well they're a moth that has been in ontario for a number of years now almost forty years now however a lot of people don't really recognize them more or see them too often until they get to these larger outbreak status. We have had about three or four Sort of larger outbreaks since nineteen eighty five nine hundred ninety one as well as in two thousand and two. They were all outbreaks over One hundred thousand hectares of defoliation to put some of that into perspective. One hectare is equal to about the same size as the soccer field. So that's a large area That has been defoliated by these gypsy moth species. It's a type of lep adopter or a type of moth and butterfly and this moth has come over from. Europe was brought over by a french scientist and he was basically trying to mate are native silkworms species With this gypsy moth in order to try and create a new species that can produce silk. So that's really what how the moth got here. And why became a problem is because that scientists at the moth got away from him and started many issues in the massachusetts area and is slowly expanded from there

And here's a rather interesting piece about the story is that they're using a new recruiting program to help find the candidates. Find the best fit at amazon. So it's sort of reversed. Essentially what happens is amazon would offer candidates choice. And then they reversed the process. Instead of having job applicants do their own research about which teams they would like to join the as teams pitch the future employees with the rules. They have open so the bottom line is if you are interested in working for amazon there are lots of openings right now. Amazon currently employs twenty three thousand full and part time employees in canada and that includes facilities in bc ontario berta manitoba and quebec and Between twenty ten twenty nineteen amazon invested more than eleven billion dollars in the infrastructure in

And what it is like to finally be in high demand dylan your twitter bio says that you're born in washington heights but you call yourself a new york slash new jersey girl so as a new jersey. Cuban i need to know where new jersey so we moved to new jersey. When i was nine we moved around in bergen county so we moved to quebec park removed. Fort lee and then we settled in teaneck.

And i might the publicists At nbc said maybe not the best idea just because people seem to be very upset fits the best not accept people even further. You understand why people were upset. I know all the reasons people are obsessed up to all of them and i apologize deeply. Montrealers love when montreal is spoken about especially in something american but the irony is that as soon as we get that acknowledgement were immediately critical of it. Like they didn't get it right. It's not good answer for us but your sketch was so good. It was silly. It was fully character that was completely inaccurate. I understand anyone being upset or taking issue with it. But i'm the same way a- anytime someone acknowledges me anytime i get any attention if it's even slightly different from the kind of attention i want. Then i get very upset. But i think one thing that a lot of people don't know about you is that you actually live in quebec and so there is a real connection. I would happen. I i grew up in. I grew up in brossard and i spoke french better that i spoke english. I like. i spoke french better than they spoke. Mandarin i like it was i was truly like one of y'all got plucked away.
How Indigenous architects are resisting colonial legacies and reshaping spaces
"Indigenous people have been living on turtle island since time immemorial and that means there's a long history of traditional dwellings on this land. Much of that knowledge was interrupted due to colonialism but indigenous architects are finding ways to reclaim that knowledge and incorporated into their work today on the show from resisting the colonial legacy of architecture in this country to integrating indigenous principles into design. How indigenous people reframing the way we look at architecture are you commanded. It's like a big organic living space. This is the mouth of the space where people come in and this organism. I like having building feel like it's a living organism. So here you're in the body of Structured show that's architect.

Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway
"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units.

I'm going to do anything. i can possibly do. Our duty as a citizen to really think about what. Can i do to fight this thing.
