Fresh update on "quebec" discussed on The Big Story
"So. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings is the big story. Jonathan Mon Petit is a journalist with CVC Montreal Hello Jonathan Jordan. My first question for you is, can you tell me about Philippe Co, Tae who is he and what did he do the coach as? A forty seven year old trucker who lives in Quebec City area. And in May, he placed a phone call to. Premier Francois Goes Writing Office and less on shown Quebec he called the officer around ten o'clock at night he left a message to the effect that he was unhappy with a Lagos handling of the of the pandemic he regretted voting for Lago. Then he warned logo that his days were numbered few hours. Later Gustav called back this time he was a much angrier was upset began swearing and he uttered a series of death threats against the provinces, public health director Harasser Arruda, and among the threats was that he intended to acquire a weapon and shoot Arruda. Where did he get the idea that the province was lying about it and all the rest of this stuff? So that's a really interesting questions. What we know afterward is that following that message the people who worked in Lagos office alerted provincial police and they were able to track a as location he was apparently in. It was a trucker. So he was in the United States how on work reasons he the phone call from quite nearer. A gun store that alarmed authorities, and so they placed on alert on his arm, his trucks. We winked when he came back into Canada border officials searched his shrine. They didn't find any weapons, but they did find several pieces of paper on which were written conspiracy theories and his lawyer told reporters when he made a court appearance later on that co with somebody was kind of A. Quite, distraught by the public health regulations and turn to the Internet for answers and so the kind of portrait that we have of him as somebody who who kind of went down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories as you was trying to articulate his his anger and his confusion over what the public health rules were regarding truckers. So listen if it was just coattail we. Probably wouldn't be talking to you today but how often is this happening in Quebec in in particular because you compiled a quite a few reports and it was a little startling. Yeah. That's right. So we have at least four other people who have been arrested for making threats either to Lago or Arruda or other public figures would stands out from these four are that their social media. Profiles of particularly their facebook posts all suggest that they have been Asian conspiracy thinking several have expressed support for conspiracy theories related to Cunanan the the kind of wild conspiracy movement. If you I guess you could call it the region of the United States and the believes that Donald Trump is fighting a war, a deep, a deep state which is composed of a child secret child. Sex Trafficking Ring. So that is going. The the extreme end of of this conspiracy thinking. But we also know that Quebec provincial police have interviewed several other people who have. Uttered threats and who also have engaged conspiracy thinking in fact, bridge with police indicated that they've since the pandemic began they've noticed a almost four hundred percent increase in online threats directed at politicians in the province. Do we have any idea how serious those threats are, and maybe just especially the ones in which people were arrested So Of the ones where people were arrested so far we don't really know how. Serious are they are if people intended to carry out violence? We do know from people who have studied the Cunanan Movement in the United States that. there several people have been radicalized. The point of actually carrying out violence could probably the the best known example is the pizza gate scandal where somebody went into a pizzeria believing it was a secret layer for for sex trafficking. Of course, it wasn't a and discharged weapon several times. So the the concern knowing Quebec is that adds the the kind of online threats will potentially spillover into offline violence and so while these individuals who have been arrested may not have been at that stage in the radicalize radicalization amongst experts there is this concern that potentially this kind of behavior will lead to something much more violent. Where does the pandemic kind of enter into this because you touched on a minute ago that the levels have been rising since Kovin began is it is it cause and effect or or what we know about that that's a that's a tough question to answer with a with any certainty. Will we? Right? We do a lot of the experts I've spoken to you know point out well, you know the pandemics is a time that's you know solve all of us are kind of affected by were you know with it sits confusing it's You know we're we're doing things that are that are strange to us. You know were wearing masks. So you know that stuff we never thought we would do you know just just a year ago. That kind of social environment experts say is often leads to conspiracy thinking it's has in the past and we're seeing again at the at the moment I think what is particularly alarming though for for experts is you have the pandemic Yunan as this conspiracy Malloy spoke about it earlier obviously, it pre exists the pandemic and its popularity pre exist the pandemic. So you kind of add a widespread conspiracy theory to. A social condition that lends itself to even more conspiracy thinking you have the kind of a perfect storm if you will for explaining the the kind of rise in in popularity of of this kind of thinking, and of course, for people who are searching for answers in this very confusing time conspiracy thinking seems to provide very easy solutions right at it's it's black and white answers their specific individuals who are to blame for the situation when when the real answers can be much harder to digest the sciences evolving what were supposed to do or? Not. Do any given days is is changing. It's it's influx, and so in that in that in that context, conspiracy theories can be quite appealing for people who are a distraught and looking for answers. So it's funny that we're having this conversation today because when I reached out to book you for this show I assumed, we'd only be talking about the conspiracy theories that emanate from the right wing and you know that's where Cunanan's associated and it all seemed like it Kinda fit together, and then over the weekend, a Quebec woman was arrested at the border. Allegedly having sent a letter containing the poison Bryson in an attempt to kill US President Donald. Trump. So this is. I mean well, while Cunanan itself might be a right wing problem. The fact that people are getting these theories from the very fringes of the media landscape is is a bigger problem than any one side of the spectrum and I wonder if you have any idea. Of the scale of that, in Quebec, of the level of public belief in conspiracy theories or mistrust in the mainstream media who are providing.

You know what war goes into it in the preparation, and really all the creativity that has really come from Ma to create these characters from pages of the script they. They really just kind of very vaguely are described to us, and we really have to kind of be the psychologists kind of like a you know a detective to find out who they are deeply.

If you follow any of the fitness, guys, a health and fitness, the bio hackers the the entrepreneurs they all talk about you gotTa have more routine Tina's structure and things like that? You GotTa wake and you gotTa know. This always seems right. Talked about morning and starts accusing to do before you go to bed to increase your sleep patterns in all sorts, and and that's very scientific writes the science of achievement like do you want to have more success? You create habits. Can Habits been creating a routine thirteen? You stick the routines I think that outcome and eventually you have success, right and other big believer that actually so I'm making fun of by any stretch. It is part of the. The the science of Chiba having that right so if you by the way struggled achieving things in the past, maybe because you don't have. Scientific like you just do these things and the outcome happens just magic. It! Just it just works. So there's a science of the problem though is, is it doesn't create fulfillment. Stickney for second I did a podcast about this six months ago or something. I was in I was in. I was in Puerto Rico with brand new Bouchard big. Bunch people and one of the guys there there's getting create. Clements and Craig was We're sitting there and he started talking about. Our brains where he said you know a lot of. Older. Years of getting shorter wait times flying rallies, and actually true, so the reason why is because your brain looks for patterns of the same thing happening over and over and over again deletes them. because. It's like I. don't even remember this because dude. Every single morning we do see every single week every single thing. As, we said he said so literally, your brain is deleting nothing's happening, and so your life seems shorter because it literally is shorter because those memories, it's like Hey, every morning from nine from seven ten, the same things under remember this because the same deleted, and so because you use five hours in your memory every day and see life years go faster days go faster faster and your life goes faster. He said that the problem is he's like he's like. If you. If you want to extend you, know, extend time You have to create called him event horizons! PODCAST? Talk a lot about him, but it was interesting because he's like this mastermind group in the very first year we did it. We all in Wyoming would flew helicopters shotguns. We rode horses. It was crazy right and he was like I was an event. Horizons remember that experience for the rest of my life is the second year master. Makina Puerto, Rico it was amazing. Place. It was amazing. Is this is year? Three and we're in Puerto Rico is. I can have an amazing time. Basically, the problem is is this experience is so similar to lash. Most of it's going to get deleted from my memory, and it's just GonNa be on. Our brain will just lead because it's like Oh, this is routine done. This before is like you lose that and I think he was trying to get us to do some crazy night. 'cause he's like when you criticize horizon right now and he wanted to I can't remember what the thing was. We had some crazy thing like to stick this in our brains. We don't lose moment of this experience because it's it's. It was so similar to think before and horizon, start thinking. I'm like. Oh, my Gosh, like if you think about these things, this is the union the Yang of of fulfillment half of. The are the the science of achievement in the article. In the game because if you want, do you want to cheat me? When she the thing you need to create structure and routine and the singer where you just do the things that create the result at the end. Is, you do that, and so because boom towards you're getting achievement, right with problems, your brains lean section every single day and I'll send your your days. Your lives words. You're not fulfilled. You're not getting the article film that because of that, and so the article film is the opposite. It's the literal opposite of this first thing right it. Is You coming in? In, saying we're not going to do routine, we have to do these crazy things with extensive life extensive happens. We fill fulfillment in the moment, and it's the scene in the Yang
How workers are fighting for their rights in a dangerous gig economy
"I was doing my grocery shopping at ten thirty last night and by doing my shopping. I mean I was picking things out on an APP that somebody else would get for me at the grocery store the next day and delivered to my front door and if for some reason I couldn't get a spot on that APP INSTA- cart and I guess we'd probably have ordered delivery for dinner using another APP that relies on another person to pick things up at the scary world and bring them to me. Yes I feel guilty about that but not enough to stop using these APPS and doubt that I'm alone in that right now we're relying on workers and the GIG economy more than ever and their job is far more dangerous than ever and most of them. Don't get hero pay or have job security or benefits. Some of them will have been fighting hard to change that and some of them have even one including a group here in Canada. The provinces Labor Board has ruled out food door couriers more closely resemble employees rather than independent contractors creating a groundbreaking precedent for others in the GIG economy. So today will tell you their story and we'll also tell you what happened right after that historic victory and we will do that as soon as. Clare. Who is just back from vacation gives us an update on covid. Nineteen this weekend Clare. Welcome back where did you go? Hey Yeah I took a few days off last week but didn't go anywhere. Obviously the furthest I went was to the park down the street. I am just glad that you came back. And before you update us. Can you explain to listeners? When will hear your updates now? Because we're changing that alphabet. Yeah will you know? I think we're kind of over the initial shock of Covid nineteen down the world and we've been hearing the phrase new normal lot so there will be fewer news updates at the top of the show from now on basically a couple times a week will update you on anything big happening with COVID. Nineteen in Canada. So yes you'll still get the news you need but maybe not every day and of course if God forbid a second wave hits and things do go downhill we will then be right here going down that hill with you every day and speaking of a second wave Clare. Let me guest as your report. Today involves some idiots in Toronto. Who were doing their best to make that happen this weekend. Yeah well that was what everyone was talking about this weekend. Because it was nice and warm out in Toronto and people wanted to go out so there were these huge crowds at Trinity Bell Woods Park on Saturday. Thousands of people were there with practically no physical distancing the city of Toronto. Call this dangerous behavior saying that. This threatened to undo all the work done over the past ten weeks so on Sunday. The World Law enforcement officers in the park and making sure that people were keeping that two meter distance. This is happening. As the number of cases of Covid nineteen is actually going up in Ontario and perhaps coincidentally two weeks after Mother's Day in Alberta the cities of Calgary and burks joining the rest of the province in allowing bars restaurants and hair salons to open today and there will be more restrictions lifted for those cities in particular on June first and in Quebec their concerns about an upcoming heat wave a minimum of thirty degrees Celsius for three days. Starting tomorrow the concern is people in long term care homes who don't have air conditioning. A long term care homes as we know have been hit the hardest throughout throughout this pandemic in Canada especially in Quebec so the Quebec Council for the protection of patients says. It's ready to go to court on this one as of Sunday evening. Eighty four thousand six hundred and ninety nine cases of covid nineteen in Canada with six thousand five hundred and fifteen deaths. I'm Jordan Youth Rawlings and this is the big story. Sarah much heads. Ida is the work and wealth reporter for the Toronto Star. She frequent guest on this podcast and now she has a podcast as well. Her new show is hustle. It's about the David versus Goliath battle. For Workers Rights in the GIG economy and episode two drops today Hazara high. You told us about this podcast when we had you on a couple of months ago and you've been putting the whole thing together. I guess well. The landscape has been shifting dramatically. So why don't you just kind of take us way back to the beginning and tell me about the GIG economy and food aura in particular When you first began this project which is a little over a year ago. Yeah that's right. It's sort of the May year anniversary of reporting on this story and there is really being so many twists and turns over over the course of the year. Some of which we sort of new would come a big battle at the Labor board an effort to try and unionize food aura careers. And then some that were just totally unanticipated. Obviously picked the pandemic being the major one there. So it's been a. It's been a really interesting. Year of following wet was really a unique kind of first attempt to change working conditions for workers in the GIG economy. Which I think is a word that we're all familiar with and we're so used to using APPs to get an uber left or order a meal to our doorstep but you know often. We don't interrogate what is happening behind the scenes. And so that was sort of the inspiration for taking a deeper dive into what the realities of this kind of work are like a new followed a group of food or careers for a year. Just tell me about them. I mean who are they? How did they meet? What are they like? Yeah so Fidora careers are really a diverse group of workers in the city. You know we've all probably seen them on their bikes with a big pink Fedora. Bag on the back or food or a jacket But they're not just cyclists. They're also drivers who go around the city delivering meals and I think a lot of people kind of assume that Workers doing this kind of job are often like young college students especially downtown a lot of the folks that you'll see on their bikes are are younger people but the reality is that the workforce when. I started meeting. Carriers was so much more diverse. You know a lot of drivers who are working in more suburban areas. Are you know New Acadians? Were supporting their families and haven't been able to find work in in their field. You know it's people who really do this as a full-time job is their career. Really They've been doing it for years And I think that the kind of overwhelming feeling that I sort of got from from talking to careers over. The course of the past year were just the fears and concerns around the protections on the job and a sense that this is a job that has really kind of fallen through the cracks that disentitlement workers from a lot of supports that many people take for granted. I think most fundamentally is a job where many express expressed just feeling like. There was a lack of respect and and one career Chris Williams who was involved in the Union drive. Kind of summed up why careers started organizing and trying to change that the broader issues around health and safety wages and dignity. And all those kind of stem from this other issue which is Fidora's misclassification of their couriers calling them. Independent contractors instead of employees or dependent contractors and that misclassification allowed them to avoid taking any responsibility for carriers. You talked about that kind of the goals of forming a union and one of them with dignity. Why is that so important? It's the hardest issue to define by in some ways. It's the most important careers have value. And I think it's the most important because that's personally by the way I think it's the most important because I think it's the one that justifies everything else like. That's why wages are important in many ways for me is because it's hard to live a dignified existence if your wages are two or uncertain if you don't know whether you'll make your daily quoted today or not and obviously health and safety connects to dignity because it's hard to be now when you're wearing constantly about your health you know it takes a toll it takes an effect. I want to explore that a little bit more but I I find the idea that we can talk about. These jobs is having fallen through the cracks kind of crazy. 'cause can you give me a sense of the scale of the GIG economy and Canada because it's everywhere right? Yeah anything I think
A groundbreaking terrorism charge against an alleged incel
"You probably don't remember the name Ashley. Noel are Daca even if you heard about her killing when it happened police tapes around the crime scene here at the crown. Spa near Wilson and Dufferin. An active investigation is underway. One woman in her early. Twenty S is dead falling a stabbing earlier this afternoon and to others. Who are also involved in. The incident aren't hospital. The Grand Scheme of the new cycle at the time it was a small tragedy with victims and violence and a first degree murder charge and a court date to come at some point. The crime happened at the end of February. Just as newscasts were starting to be dominated by the emergence of covid nineteen so the story got lost until Tuesday when the charges against the accused were updated and two words were added right after murder terrorist activity and this is important because I the image that those two words might conjure in some minds is not even close to what police say happened here and second because certainly in Canada and quite likely around the whole world. This is the first time that charge has been used in this way. Every murder in Toronto is a tragedy. Every murder should be covered and every victim should be mourned. And we probably know that. That's not always the case. So what is it about this one? That might leave a legacy that is significant to victims and activists across the world. What might those two words at the end of the charge change in our fight against misogyny Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story? Stuart Bell is a reporter with Global News and he was part of a team of journalists. Who broke this story? Hello Stuart. Why don't you start by telling me what we know about what happened on February twenty? Four th in as much detail as you can well as about noon on a Monday and The owner of a A massage parlor in Toronto Heard some loud noises coming from a back room and she went to see what's going on and a man came out with a believable machete started attacking her. She was actually able to wrestle with a bad and eventually stabbed him as well and so the to them came outside covered in blood. Witnesses saw them. Come outside the storefront Bleeding heavily and police arrived. They found the body of a woman inside at twenty four four year old woman and they arrested the young person who was injured at the scene at the time they charged him with first degree murder and attempted murder but it was always a big question. Mark over this particular killing as to why. What was the motive for it in there were? There was some especially given Toronto's history with the in cells in the two thousand eighteen van attack. There was some speculation. No could this be but it was only yesterday when the charges were laid in court when we finally got the confirmation that in fact Police are alleging that this was an insult attack. Let's start with The victim of the attack. What do we know about her? And I guess about the place where this happened like set the scene for us a little bit so we have some context for for the charges while it's an erotic massage parlor if you read their website they certainly don't conceal the fact that You know there perhaps a little bit more than massage other certainly encouraging a certain type of Clientele. The woman was killed was twenty four years old. She was a mother. The woman who was injured was thirty years old believe she's described herself as the owner of the of the business She had some cuts honor arms. You know sort of defensive kind of wounds. We know why this particular place was targeted. We don't know for sure but certainly from other in related attacks over the years we've seen places targeted for example a Yoga Studio in Florida just because the attacker believed that was a place where he could find women which were really his target right so that may have been the case here as well. What do we know about the alleged killer? Well we don't know much in can't say of what we know. Because he's a youth he seventeen and therefore his identity is protected by the Young Offenders Act. It's just not even possible to discuss anything that would reveal his identity but we do know from our police. Sources that Following his arrest he made statements that put him in line with cell ideology. One police source told OUR CATHERINE MACDONALD A Global Toronto that he wanted to kill as many women as possible. We also heard that. He said he was familiar with the Toronto Van Attacker and the author of what is considered to be the in cell manifesto for police to come out and say outright that they believe this was inspired by ideology You can bet they must have some either from his own statements or his maybe as online usage or maybe both they probably have evidence that certainly leads them in that direction. Can you explain the significance of the way? The police have changed the charge. What does it mean? Well it significant on a bunch of levels. You know if you look back at the history of terrorist attacks just in the last couple of years There was the the van attack in Edmonson. There was The Quebec mosque shooting was the the Toronto Van Attack. In twenty eighteen in all those cases. Either certainly things that looked like textbook terrorism but in none of those cases where terrorism charges brought with the prosecutors did in those cases was basically say We're charging you with first degree murder or attempted murder and I think the the reasoning behind not pursuing terrorism aspect of that is it really doesn't add anything in the end result and it may be even makes the prosecution more difficult. Because you've got to prove the motive. The motive was somehow terrorism related. But I think you'll probably have noticed. There was a lot of push back to that. Why was the Quebec Mosque? Shooting not officially considered terrorism. Why was the the Toronto Vanak not treated as an act of terrorism? I think that caused a lot of confusion in a lot of people were upset so I think it's entirely possible that we've seen a bit of a change here Don't forget three days before this massage parlor attack. There was another attack. There was a woman in scarborough on sidewalk when she was attacked. By a man with a hammer in killed he was also arrested and charged with the same murder terrorist activity charge and he was alleged to have been a supporter of is this ideology so in that case they they did lay that terrorism charge. So I think when you look at those two cases together for probably seeing Abbot of a sea change in terms of prosecutors in police saying look I think it is it is important that when terrorism happens we treat it as terrorism that we recognize it for what it is and you know even though it not change the length of time that the person will spend in prison. It's important for the community to have it recognized for what it really is and I think there's another significance as well and I've heard this from sources over this particular case which is one of the best ways to interrupt. Terrorism is for people to recognize when individuals are going down that path of violent radicalization so for parents for example. We're talking about a seventeen year old in this case for parents or friends or people that are around our teachers people that are around someone to have a better idea of what terrorism looks like how people behave when the radicalizing in into to intervene when they see that happened to get that person help before they end up picking up a a knife for were renting a van and mowing people down and so I think by the hope is that by prosecuting. These types of things as terrorism Dell help raise awareness among people. Terrorism is not just nine eleven. It comes in different forms it can be just a young person online radicalizing attaching themselves to a cause and deciding to go in and pick up everyday objects as weapons and to do something in their mind for their cause. So I think that's the other significance is hopefully benefit in terms
What we do (and dont) know about COVID-19 and kids
"Kelli grant is a national health reporter for the Globe and Mail. Hello Kelly hello. Why don't we start this conversation by you? Just telling me about Dr Kate Zinser. Who is she and why does she have such a personal stake in the story? Were talking about today. So doctors sensors epidemiologist. She's at the University of Montreal and she's one of the CO leaders of a study that they're trying to get off ground in Quebec that they hope will tell them a bit more about how often kids actually transmit the corona virus. Now as you said she does have a really personal connection here and that is that I think. She sort of exemplifies the really hard decision that some families are having to make. Because we don't really understand this question about transmission. Her husband has stage four cancer. He's undergoing chemotherapy which makes him sort of the classic immuno-compromised person and she has two kids in the older of those two. Charlie who is six hasn't been called. Apraxia is a motor disorder. It's neurological disorder that affects his speech. And he was really thriving and kindergarten and really doing very well and now of course like everyone. They've had to take him out and because she's in Montreal which is looking at reopening schools on May twenty fifth. She and her family have this choice to make you know. How important is it to have Charlie in school versus? How important is it to protect his father from the possibility of the Krona virus? And if we better understood how likely charlier kids like him were to transmit the virus. That might have an effect on her personal decision. So how do you go about finding that out because I know you know even personally when we talk about sending my daughter back to daycare or other families that we know that's the first thing we wonder about him. We have never seen anything. That really conclusively told us while. That's because nobody really knows. So what doctors in her colleagues at news of Montreal Lavelle? How entered a public health authorities at the provincial and local level in Quebec are trying to do is sort of follow a large group of children at what they would consider sentinel schools and they would try to do testing these children and try to get a sense of how often they actually transmit the virus now? This particular study is still very much in the planning phase and right off the Bat. One of the difficulties. They are running up against his figuring out. What's the testing technology that you can use to follow these children Because as everybody knows there's issues around testing capacity and also some of the kinds of testing that you might WanNa do Can be a bit tough on children like these very diesel spots to. What they're looking at doing is collecting samples of saliva or what are called dried blood spots. Which is where you know you prick your finger and put it on a piece of paper and that know testing can be done through those dried blood spots. But they're actually looking at trying to perhaps collect the samples before some of the technology is perfectly in place so that question of of how they collect and analyze the samples is is a big one for them to start. But of course there still will be the kind of regular Pcr which is a test for the active infection that will still be going on at the same time with any of the children there following are tested through regular means they can follow them and then see these kids take this home and give it to their families. Do they spread it to other children today? Spread it to teachers so they want to follow this cigarette out so we might not have seen anything conclusively But I've definitely seen various conflicting reports. Can you kind of explain a little bit about what we may be? Think we might know about kids role in spreading this. I like how you said. Maybe we might know because that actually sums it up really nicely so there have been some smaller studies done. That seems to suggest not. The children. Don't transmit it. We clearly know that they do some have. It's happened sure. But perhaps they don't play as big a role in community spread as older folks as adults do. And so that comes from a couple of different places. There's been some data out of Iceland's and data out of the Netherlands A pretty interesting study at of Australia. And some looks at helps hold clusters. And what all of these kind of small studies all of which have various weaknesses or various. Caveats what they seem to have come to the conclusion of is it seems like they may spread a little bit less than adults. And there's a couple of different sort of theories about why that may be one of them. Is that children. Do seem for the most part to be more mildly affected by Cova nineteen so some of the thinking is just like even though there is a symptomatic priests and dramatic spread. Going on that you're perhaps less likely to spread it to as many people if you're not you know coughing wildly or sneezing wildly right but of course you know the these. These studies are all imperfect. This stuff is hard to figure out and one of the things right off the bat. Is You know a lot of these. Studies have taken place in an environment. Where school wasn't running as normal. The Australian study I mentioned. Some of the data gathering happened schools. Were technically still open. But after the premium Australian state had encouraged people to keep their kids home. So you know. We're going to get a good answer to this. Only after schools are up and running in a sort of widespread way.
A very Canadian solution to a problem well hopefully never face
"At the heart of today's topic is a problem. That Canada will hopefully never face when you just have to look around the world to see how devastating it can be when it does happen in a muddy field outside on an army of bulldozers is breaking ground racing to build up thousand bed hospital to treat victims of the corona virus the Congo. This French train is far from the usual bags and suitcases. This high speed service has been requisitioned for medical use the makeshift hospital and the javits center now is taking patients and there is another field hospital going up this in central park. If covert nineteen spikes again and overwhelms our healthcare system. Canadian officials will have to act quickly. They will need to create a task force and develop a plan to handle the overflow. Who will put that plan together? How fast can they do it? Where will the building go? Where will the beds go where we'll the nurses dress? How does a field hospital come together while sitting on some of their desks will be a very Canadian document to help them? Figure that out because it turns out that almost every place in Canada from our biggest cities to our smallest towns as a facility that is ready and waiting to be turned into a makeshift hospital. I mean you can probably guess what that is. But I don't want to spoil the surprise. The story of how this plan came together and exactly what would need to be done to execute while. That's also very Canadian. And so right. After Claire gives us an update on cove nineteen in Canada. Today I am pleased to present a very good news story. Both because of the fact that this document exists and because so far at least it looks like it won't be needed so clear. How are we doing? Canada marked a grim milestone on Monday. Topping five thousand deaths from Kovic nineteen and most of those more than three thousand are in Quebec despite this schools in Quebec outside of the Montreal area have reopened with restrictions in place schools in Montreal are set to reopen may twenty fifth in British Columbia Phase. Two of the reopening plan will start next week if the cove nineteen situation. There remains as steady as it's been so phase two means. Some businesses will be allowed to reopen with some restrictions in place and people will be allowed to gather in groups of up to six people after the Victoria Day long weekend. Bbc's provincial health officer. Dr Bonnie Henry cautioned everyone to be patient and calm in the coming weeks. Ontario saw another day of decline in cases of covert nineteen on Monday and the province's chief medical officer of health. Dr David Williams said the province is anticipating whether or not it can begin the next phase of recovery. Despite this terrier state of emergency is expected to be extended today until June second as of Monday evening sixty nine thousand nine hundred and eighty-one cases of covert nineteen in Canada with five thousand one hundred deaths. I'm Jordan he's Rawlings. Is the big story. Kennedy Smith is the managing principal of an engineering firm called integral group and He started down a long process that led to an interesting Potentially Very Canadian solution to a problem. Kenny hi I'm doing all right thanks My first question for you is just. How did the group that began? This process come together. And what was its original intention in a weekend to work from home or a couple of weeks and I was. I was sat home one night and I just start thinking by you know. How can we respond as a design construction operations community to help what's going on in the world and and more locally within our community My wife is a is a narcis sick kids. So I also start getting a bit of fear around if if additional facilities or temperatures were needed in if they're if they're put up too quickly or a certain way it may actually create another area of risk for people working within them. So I just started thinking about you know. How can we respond for the right reasons as a community? And I reached I. I'd just can reach site to some some people in Lincoln and made an open call just to whoever was interested. Whoever was willing to put forward their own personal time adds to help right across our industry. So everything from architecture engineering fabrication construction operation. Everything just kind of put it out there. And the response was fantastic. And a lot of people responded. I think I think people were kind of looking for an opportunity to help in any way they could. And and this gave them this this platform to do it So a lot of people responded and we just kind of kicked it off and started from there really moving beyond that we we started speaking to some people on the on the user side trying to understand the actual needs of healthcare professionals the hospitals. And I'm the timelines 'cause you know we're we're used to designing and constructing sewer lengthy timeline. So you know right off the right out of the gate. They told us You know these things if their needs Would NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED WITHIN. Can of two three weeks so a create this very very fast rapids requirement. We realized that we essentially had a week to try and pull something together with team. Yeah so then. We kicked off and started going. What was the first step? I guess In that process. And what were you considering as you sort of looked around at what might be available? It was it was quite crazy. I mean I think usually you've got some more time to really reflect and gather ideas across in many different groups in this scenario you've got a lot of people That have amazing ideas but you also have to make decisions very quickly to to try and move things forward so the first step was just kinda committing to a building type and kind of moving forward with a design and construction at a church for that building type. How many different kinds of buildings did you look at? And what was the that you had? So I think initially we. We started thinking on a large scale when you saw what was happening across the rest of the world in the UK in the United States where there were retrofit saying no major convention centers arenas airports we we. I started thinking about that and then after speaking to the healthcare user groups of Front we realized that maybe a more scalable solution would be better based on the on the needs as they came in so something that wasn't necessarily a too large scale Something that was more medium scale that we could actually implement some better measures to control the The clinical functions of space and air movement. Things like that so we first started considering large and then we started thinking what is a good can building type. On that museum scale that could be easily replicated first of all locally but an essentially anywhere in Canada we thought about hotels. There is a really good opportunity with hotels for People who couldn't self isolate People who couldn't get into amp shelters Could you know accommodate the needy and The people that needs to be helped on they could safely self isolate but in terms of a clinical function. It's Kinda hard to and I'm with the constant Clinton and maintaining the conditions in that space. So yeah we landed very quickly on arenas and then very quickly on ice arenas and you know is very Canadian response They are located all over the commune insane over Canada and the buildings themselves. Although there's there's there's variations of them the main components of these buildings don't really differ that much so you have the kind of ice arena where the WASHROOMS are entranceways Asi. Tin Area Zamboni entrances. You know these. These are all things that remain pretty consistent across any facility so if we could create a designer or sponsor runs one it could easily be replicated across any so. I think that's that's how we can have whittled a dining came to that as that building site so I think everybody listening can kind of picture either a professional hockey arena or their own local arena with the same kind of characteristics. When you're starting with that what do you then have to do? In order to convert it into something that can really help patients and also maintain safety like what does that actually look like on the ground. If you were to put this into action I mean I mean the first thing you've got to consider as what are the clinical functions you know what's it going to be used for? What do the healthcare professionals need in that space? And then can hide you separate out the building to maintain separation between kind of clean and clean supplies or supplies. 'em Hygiene tain separation between people and processing people can come in and and and leaving so we very quickly came Syria. A consensus with the team with some amazing healthcare plan ours. About how do we can chop up the space and very kind of basic terms to separate and maintain these functions so it was really using that main ice arena space to to have patients fitted and embeds comfortably? That could be checked on and could be tended to And then some of the exterior spaces could be fitted for the healthcare professionals storage of supplies and and then maintain some of the base building function so still maintaining the washroom areas and the change rooms for healthcare professionals and patients alike and then in the exterior spaces at most of these locations or surrounded by parking There's there's usually space around them so we had opportunities to also include four temporary trailers or additional spaces to store equipment and to put in additional mechanical equipment to maybe have some some temporary areas for doctors nurses to actually get some downtime and to hang out so You know we could kind of add to it like Lego blocks and as as where needed with I really doing too much to the existing infrastructure. Yeah I've taken a look just at one of the little plans you kind of sketched out yet. Looks Amazingly Just like a hockey arena only It's been transformed. Did you game out? How long that would take you and how much it would cost. And how quickly you can set it up. Because I know we've heard things from around the world of you know how quickly China has thrown up field hospitals or quickly. New York has transferred stuff. So what's the timeline in the cost there so I mean the cost is something
Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?
"You can say one thing for the current crisis. It's given us a chance to try a lot of things that we might never have had the will to do otherwise I amongst those just giving people money okay not everyone but millions and millions of people in Canada and not forever but at least for a few months and this isn't a new idea. It's been around in some form or another for decades. You probably know it as universal basic income and you might associate it with the most progressive voices come the liberal side of the spectrum and you may also associate the opposition to it with complaints of lazy people want free cash instead of working but despite having a long history as a potential way to ease poverty and improve health. This has never been tried on a large scale or for a long time. So the people arguing on either side of it have never had enough evidence to prove their point. So it's been a political football until like with so many things. These days along came the virus and now getting money to people who need it quickly is absolutely essential governments around the world even the most conservative of them have done that and those who support or oppose that kind of policy have mostly agreed on the need for it. It's what happens next. And what we learned from that will determine if we finally give a universal basic income. A real shot. So we'll explain history of the policy small tests that we've seen on it be political behind it and whether or not it will stick around when we get out of this current mass. And we'll do that as soon as Claire gives the details on this current mess cargill is dealing with the outbreak at one of its meat processing plants. This one isn't Schambori Quebec southeast of Montreal. Sixty four workers have tested positive. There cargill had another outbreak a few weeks ago at a beef packing plant in high river. Alberta in that outbreak more than nine hundred workers tested positive. It reopened last week after a two-week shutdown also in Quebec schools in the western part of the province are set to reopen today but attendance is optional. Desks will be spaced apart. And there can be no more than fifteen kids in a classroom at a time. Ontario reported the lowest number of cases of Cova nineteen for the province on Sunday since March. Two hundred ninety four new cases. And this comes. The province reopens Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas. Although camping is still not allowed and things like beaches playgrounds and public washrooms are still off limits. And lastly schedule and is suspending the sale of alcohol in the Northern Community of La Lush to help control the spread of cove in nineteen. The alcohol store will be closed for two weeks. To prevent people from gathering. There will be support for those at risk of alcohol withdrawal as of Sunday evening. Sixty eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight cases of covert nineteen in Canada with four thousand nine hundred and seventy deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Max. Faucet is a writer and a reporter for many publications including on this project for the Walrus. Hey Max he joined our. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is how everybody should hopefully answer that question. These days you start by defining What is a universal basic income Broad is that term. And what does it mean? Sure so I mean you know this is an idea that's been around for some time now and and there can be competing definitions and I suspect. We'll get into that in a second but the one that I adhere to the one that you know certainly I informed Andrew Yang's campaign in the United States and that has been informing most of the conversation about UBA. Right now is It has three conditions it's automatic. It's unconditional in its non-withdrawal. So basically that means it comes every month doesn't matter who you are you get it. You could be making a lot of money or a little money and you get it. And then it's non withdraw so It's not means tested. So it doesn't get clawed back you know as you as you make more money you know. There's much conversation on you know econ twitter about various amendments and adjustments to that formula. But I think that's a good way to think about it. Can you give me a little history of it? You mentioned it's been around for a long time Has it been tried for real anywhere where to come from that? Depends on your definition of for real right. I think people look at the idea of giving people money from the government. And they think well this must be a left-wing idea but actually the first real experiments with it happened in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies and it was driven by a Richard Nixon and Milton Friedman. Who is the father of supply-side economics? Yeah they saw it as a way to replace the welfare system and so they their idea of a basic income is not quite the way I just defined it. It was something called a negative income tax. And so let me. Just get a tiny bit. Wonka share the way it worked in their conception is basically they would give people a percentage of the difference between their income and defined income cutoff or like the point where they start paying income taxes so if they set the cutoff at let's say forty thousand dollars and the negative income tax percentage was fifty percent. Someone who made twenty thousand dollars a year would get ten thousand dollars from the government. They made thirty five thousand they would get two thousand and from the government so is this sort of sliding scale where topped you up up until a certain point and then it went away right. They cancelled it in one thousand nine hundred and you know the the the Reagan era kind of buried it under under Nixon's legacy in Canada. Did something called the men come experiment? Which was the Manitoba Basic Income Experiment? That was more that was closer to the basic income that that I described earlier in the one that a lot of people are talking about right now so that says that gave thirteen hundred urban and rural families in Winnipeg and don't Fan Manitoba with incomes below. Thirteen thousand dollars a year back then money. But by the time that the data was collected in nineteen seventy eight so they ran up from seventy five to seventy eight. The Canadian government kind of lost interest in and they cancelled the project. So we've had these these aborted attempts to gather a sample and it hasn't really provided any conclusive evidence In the in the American one. There's some evidence that it that it you know Negatively impacted people's willingness to go to work in the Canadian won the data suggested otherwise. But there just wasn't enough data to conclusively determine the impact of giving people money on their both on their willingness to work and on on the outcomes that the government's wanted to test. Which is you know better. Health Outcomes Better Labor outcomes better social outcomes so you know the jury was still out right. Will what kind of a sample size and study length? Would you even need to determine that because again we had one or at least something like one here in Ontario Under Kathleen Wynne. A few years ago and the next government came to power and it was immediately phased out. So you know. I don't think we got more than two or three years out of that either. So what kind of scale are we talking about? Yeah I mean to make it work. You would needs multiple cities multiple tests populations and a long duration of study. This is this is a a bold policy intervention but you need to be able to control for extenuating circumstances and factors the Ontario project. Was it had some really promising results. As it turned out there was a study group at McMaster that basically interviewed the people that participated in the program. Some of the data they had eighty percent of of people reporting better health outcomes. They were using less tobacco drinking. Less eighty-three percent said they had better mental health. They were feeling less stressed. They had a better diet And there was even interesting. Data around better labor market outcomes people were basically using the minimum income the guaranteed income to improve their jobs to look for better job. So it's disappointing that the government scrapped it after basically what amounted to one year and left us in the same spot that we've sort of always been with these things where we just don't have enough data for either side to conclusively prove that their argument is right and you know maybe not maybe now is the opportunity to kind of walk in that that longer sample size but you know the problem here is that. It's always tempting for governments to to start these programs and then abandon them or different governments to come in and cancel them. You'd need some sort of agreement by all parties that they're going to let this run. Its course and we haven't really seen that yet. So you mentioned that it's seen mostly now at least as a left-wing idea might have begun under Nixon. But certainly I think that's how most listeners would frame it as you know Whether or not you support it About the side of the spectrum that it comes from but as we've started to see government's realizing how badly they need to help people as the economy collapses during this pandemic have seen any movement On the other side of the aisle towards this kind of idea I think we've seen much more movement on on the conservative side than we have on the progressive side the beano progressives are are are very wary of guaranteed income proposals because I think you know quite rightly they remember certainly the academics who studied this. They remember that it was originally an idea that was intended to get rid of welfare and other social supports and that is always a concern that if you bring in a guaranteed income. Is it really just an attempt to shrink? The size of the state is an attempt to get rid of targeted support programs that that make people's lives better and I think that's a totally valid concern when I when I posted my article from the wall or something twitter. I got a lot of feedback from economists about that where they basically said you know. Oh here we go again. People people don't realize that this is a an attempt to slip in through the back door reduction in social programs. That's really interesting. Yeah but you know. Over the last few months we've seen a really array of conservatives. Come out and say that this is a good idea. Hugh Seagull. Who is a former senator standing red? Tory I WOULD. I would describe him as a thought leader. He's been he's been banging the drum for for guaranteed income for quite some time now but he was always sort of out there in the wilderness as a conservative suggesting that this was a good idea and he wasn't one of the ones who was saying that it should replace social programs. He was saying it should be an augmentation to them but in the states over a matter of weeks you saw people like Mitt. Romney coup is basically the Avatar of hedge fund capitalism. Coming out and and suggesting that this was a good idea that would support. Americans during the fallout from Cova and ultimately Donald Trump's government. It's not it's not a permanent basic income. But they sent a check to every American and that is sort of one of the hallmarks of a basic income. So it's interesting the degree to which we've seen conservatives rally behind this particular policy flag. I think that it is driven by shorter. Term political objectives American politicians having election. That they're looking at in November and one of the surest ways to get defeated is to be in being government while people are losing their jobs losing their homes losing their livelihood so I think it's more self preservation than a genuine change of heart but in from a policy perspective. You take the support where you can get it and you build on it from there. So you know I think advocates of a U. UB. I should take their support and and leverage it in order to build their movement if you can may be explained to me the thought behind the benefits of this applying to absolutely everyone including people who have job because that's really And we can debate in Canada versus the US for however long. But that's that's like the primary difference between what trump's government has done and what Canada's done with the baby. Yeah that's the tricky part. That's the part that a lot of people struggle with conceptually and intellectually as is the idea of giving people who don't need money more money right. Yeah and Ken Boston cool. Who is is a former adviser to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark? He's been kind of driving the bus in Canada around the need for a UB. I you know he's he is preferred that to the more targeted approach that the government has taken with Serb. You know his idea in the short term is we just need to get money into people's hands right. Now we need we need to stimulate the economy and ultimately will tax it back next year on people's income taxes that's the thing about a guaranteed income in the context of the system. We have here is if you're making sixty seventy thousand dollars a year. This is going to a portion of this. We'll get taxed back right and so it's not. It's not really free money. It's a little bit of free money and I suspect there would be some social programs that would get pulled back a little bit to to make the numbers work but you know at the end of the day. I don't think you can let the weaknesses in the policy that that might impact a few people. Override the benefits that would impact far more people. You know there's there's all sorts of data out there that suggests that a basic income would actually stimulate economic growth. There's all kinds of data that suggested improves. Health outcomes and Lord knows improving. Health outcomes would save taxpayers and the government a lot of money. Because that's where an increasing increasingly large part of our social budget is going and we'll continue to go in the years and months to come so you know it it is It's a tough idea to get past for some people that I find working already. Why should I get more money from the government but that money's going back into the economy and it stimulating economic growth that supporting jobs? It's reducing healthcare costs. You know I think there's a pretty good case for it and and you know it's one that we should be willing to explore. I am I am more than open to criticism about the cost factor that I suppose we can get to that in a second but I think we also need to look at the benefits and look a little a little bigger in terms of where those benefits accrue it. It's not just lifting people out of poverty. Although that's that's an obvious benefit it's improving people's health outcomes improving their labor market outcomes. Let's people who have a

You brains yourself as a leader. Well I've covered this before but I'll explore again in. The context of Of ANONYMITY ENDED UP PERSONAL LEADERSHIP. And that is the next full step. Step one explore your voice. Make sure that you have that. Inner Voice your great communicator. At whether it's one on one situations whether it's stages to a lot of people and that's a key point because a lot of people in leadership think that it's just good one on one discussions one on one communication skills all. I think it's just able to communicate too many people at once to me. Great latest what they really have that When the building a personal brand is they're able to school. The voice spoke one on one. But in a situation where it's one too many so that's one connecting east obscure yourself and then upscale your team that's what Personal you know the branding yourself as a leader is all about.

All mariah to get the band the follows to play to the bait of music and play the music that needs to happen so when not talk about leadership and leading teams by always love using the example them conductors and concert fans because everyone has different stops.

Well latest have to do different things. Depending on the year's activities we discussed because leadership is he personal bomb professional family life all asked to be ladies in different roles. Different responsibilities so that the three opinion a very common and to me. It's all about being able to envision it's all about the number correct follows and it's all about being able to execute so the three tasks of a later Matt whether it's leading at home at one co leading self is that you have to have a vision. You have to be able to get follow as to see that vision and you need to be able to and if you can do those three things combined with what I've covered in this flash costs than you will build your personal brain identity and remember that brain is what people say about you when you leave the room so if you really WanNa know what people think that your brain will think about you and I do this in in groups.

"The the first thing you should know about our guest today is that. He's got flower like in his house and he just bought it in a store. Really all kidding aside. He is living proof that despite what I might see at my local grocery stores Canada's food supply chain is working even for flower but if it is and why can't I find flour. And why can't my friend who lives up in the country? Get fresh bread in order to answer that you have to start with the basics of how Canada's food supply chains operate. I say chains because when you start to have it explained first thing you learn is that there are two of them and those two supply. Chains are very different so from a beginner's guide to those chains to the impact of cove in nineteen breaks and meat packing plants on them to why you should really think about eating fries while you're on lockdown and how much more you might pay for groceries this fall.

And we'll do that as soon as Claire tells you what you need to know today. The federal government is pledging two hundred and fifty two million dollars to ease pressures on the country's agriculture industry. Last month the Canadian Federation of Agriculture asked for two point six billion dollars but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the amount being given now is a point. We will continue to work with farmers with a stakeholders and industry representatives with provinces and territories to ensure that food food capacity in this country. And those people who worked so incredibly hard every single day to feed Canadians get the support that they need through this crisis and beyond Alberta plans to double its capacity to test for the current a virus four point five million dollars will be spent on new equipment and technology right now. The province is doing about seven thousand tests day and they want that number at sixteen thousand Quebec. The hardest hit province in candidate is lifting some of the restrictions on private seniors homes for nearly two months. Now residents have not been allowed to have visitors and they've not been allowed to go out and accompanied the premier says now some residents will be allowed to go out on their own and they can have visitors but they have to be outside as of Tuesday evening.

"quebec" Discussed on Front Burner
"This brings me to something that You mentioned actually before we started this interview. Which is this idea of this. Two worlds that Lagos put forward. They're not totally separate from each other right. The long term care homes. What's happening more widely in the province and this has to do with how they collide in the hospital system which is another benchmark That experts are saying you have to make sure you have an order before you start opening up. You know one of the reasons why we done all of this. Very extreme social distancing is to ensure that we don't overburden our system and so you know. How is that playing into concerns? That people might have about reopening up as well while so this I think this is possibly the most fragile part of premier. Lagos plan so you can't reopen if your hospitals are full because when you re open there's going to be an increased cases that's just you know there's nothing you can do about that and you're probably also going to see a spike in hospitalizations. Now you have have this outbreak in long term care home so when an elderly patient is sent to hospital for treatment. They can't leave the hospital because the situation is so dire in the in the long term care homes and so they're staying in hospital taking up spaces in hospital so that reduces of course hospital capacity the other thing. That's starting to happen. Is that the ER just starting to fill up possibly from Kovic patients possibly also from people who are feeling things are getting back to some level of normal and are starting to go to hospitals again for broken bones or you know aches and pains would have you and so hospitals Waiting rooms are ours are starting to fill up again and so that will be key indicator of whether or not Quebec is ready for the next step whether or not Montreal is ready for the next step. If those hospitals continue to fill up if those hospital beds continued to be taken by covert patients or other patients the province and the public health officials have been very clear that we cannot go forward doing simple. The question is for you Dr Arruda. What for you is the breaking point where we'll have to take a step back first. Having community transition that is so high that will have hospitalizations that will search significantly so it will be the rhythm of hospitalization the rhythm of increase of cases. All this whole plan is all dependent on there being enough space in hospitals to be able to treat Whatever anticipated increase in covert patients? We'll see down the line right kate. I'm interested you know when you listen to officials including go. They talk about this need for a balance right balancing these public health objectives but also with people's mental health and financial losses and kids that are actually receiving their meals at school. That now are not because they haven't been able to go to school. Do you fear that you are underestimating? The risk to children going back to school. I find that if we're talking about children that have a hard time learning for example. It's a question of balancing out the inconveniences. There's a lot more risk of you know Preventing them from going to school for six months than the risk of having serious consequences going back to school. And so what are you hearing from people? You're talking to from everyday citizens? How do they feel about how the provincial government is handling this? Well there are definitely people who are in favor of it and there are people who are against it but what I've heard overwhelmingly Is that people feel a little bit of whiplash because you know just a week ago. The government was pleading with people to go into the long term care homes. The situation did not appear to be under control. I it's still as you mentioned doesn't really seem to be under control and I think the government has to responsibilities here the the first and the most important one is obviously keeping people safe but the second one is reassuring them that they have a good plan and that things are under control. And I think what I've been hearing. Is that for the last little bit you know. They've been saying things in their Daily News conferences that haven't happened Like for instance. They said that they were going to test. Everyone in long term care homes Then they said that they actually couldn't do that. They also said there was enough. Ppe and volunteers for the long term care homes. But we're hearing that they're still understaffed. And under resourced People are really supportive of Lagos leadership and action. But they're beginning to see these little cracks and it's adding to the anxiety and it's adding to the worry that they're feeling So you know. People are anxious to go back to work. People are anxious to go back outside but I don't think that it's all sunshine here yet in terms of how the public is feeling about this. Certainly I mean my phone number was shared in a bunch of facebook groups and yesterday I just took call after call after call from people who were extremely worried about their children and extremely worried about the changing nature of this situation and I mean it's changing every single day. Okay thank you so much to. You both really appreciate this conversation. Thank you thanks Jamie..

"Cbc reporters. Kate McKinnon and John La Petite or with me. Hello to you both. Hello Hey Jimmy. Things are much for joining me today so John. I want to talk to you about the situation outside. Long-term care homes in a moment kate. I I know you've been following the story's playing out in these homes very closely. We know that long term care facilities are really at the heart of Canada's Kovic nineteen problem deaths in these kind of facilities make up seventy nine percent of corona virus related fatalities across the country. It's really a stunning number. Even as the confirmed cases start to slow more people have died than expected from two point three percent on April the nineth to five point five percent as of April. The twenty seventh and so. What has the Picture Been Lake in Quebec? I know it's one of the hardest hit provinces. Well this has been the big crisis that's been unfolding in Quebec since nearly the beginning of the pandemic and the situation actually appears to be getting worse The government started publishing a list of long term care homes and seniors homes with outbreaks. And as of right now there are nearly one hundred. Long-term CARE HOMES WITH OUTBREAKS. That are considered critical. That's double as many as there were last week. So there are. Yeah so there are homes. Were there have been dozens of deaths? there's one in. Lavalle that's had eighty five deaths so far nurse. Sylvie Morgan says she stressed because the patients that given by device so fast I have never seen A. We can't give our best. It's too much too much too. Were to take care of it service. It's really it's really art situation and another one that we're covering Extensively as the Herron aware almost everybody there is sick and at least thirty. Three people have died. Hi My name is Christine Camp and I'm an LPN at Maison Eddo so when the outbreak occurred about twelve of US state and we saw everything that happened. We saw a lot of people pass away. And we're all very much not okay for having experienced that I genuinely loved every single one of the residents that we've lost these homes. Have been chronically understaffed The unions for healthcare workers have been warning about these shortages and the homes of for actual decades since at least two thousand in Quebec so most of the long term care homes didn't even have protective gear. Some of them still don't they were just. It seems like they were just fully unprepared for this to happen like we did a story last week That's the one employee was wearing like a blanket as a gown in one of the long term care homes like they still don't wow protective gear. We've been hearing stories here on Syria. Too of long-term care homes sorta begging for p. p. e. from nail salons and and stuff like that too. I know that you spoke with some of those frontline workers at the facility and Lavalle that you mentioned and they quit because of the conditions and what kind of conditions are we talking about here. Well so you can imagine that if the staff don't have p. p. e. then the staff gets sick. There's already a shortage of staff in these homes and then the people who are there got sick and so what you have left is just a very very bare bones Not Enough staff no ability to take care of of the people who are living in the home so I profiled the for Non Rock long-term care home in Lavelle. This is a small home with ninety. Seven beds seventy people are sick and twenty people have died so that leaves seven healthy people And you know I spoke with the nurse Valerie. Jabbar who actually quit on Friday. She says she went into her car and just wept and she just realized she said to herself. I think I'm getting. Ptsd working in here were locking. Some medical supplies were lacking people to work like was hard to see the people that I took care for solemn like fighting suffering being alone People weren't getting fed. People weren't getting water. They weren't getting changed and she just said I couldn't. I couldn't watch anymore. I had to quit my heart's over long term and I'm I'm still thinking about my co workers My residents even if they're not mike were anymore. There's still apply to me. Everybody thinks brave and courageous than whatever but I just feel like I was not strong enough to hold on and so she was one of four people who who left that day. But it's awful these stories. I can't even imagine how difficult that must be for the people working there. I know that in an attempt to manage this situation the military's been brought in. But I also understand that now speech therapists nutritionist. They're being forced to work in these long term. Care Homes in Quebec. And so can you tell me a little bit more about what's been going on there. Yeah so last week. The province announced that there was a shortage of ninety five hundred workers and that the bulk of them were in these long term care homes so basically like conscripted anyone in the health sector in Montreal. Who was not immediately needed to do their job. So we're talking about like psychologists nutritionists social workers and told them that they had to go into these long term care homes or risk losing their job. They said wasn't optional And so you can imagine. These people have never even imagined that they've been in this situation and they're scared because they see in the news every day that people are dying and they don't know how to do this job and they never thought it would happen to them so I spoke with A number of them and they told me that they were given a two hour training session before being sent into a home. They had no control over which home it was. Whether it had serious outbreaks or not. And you know you can imagine like a nutritionist mother of two who is suddenly working overnight shifts in long term care facility That is seriously hit by Cova. Nineteen you know. These people are upset but I have to say that heroin everyone. I spoke to rose to the challenge there in these homes. They're doing their best. They just feel a little bit concerned in worried. Okay so even with these measures the military being brought in and it's my understanding that about half of the one thousand troops that the province requested we'll be brought in soon. Members of the Canadian armed forces are learning the ropes in deployment. Unlike any they've ever had most certainly unusual but we are ready to adapt and overcome any challenge in our way. And we're mostly proud to be here. We're going to be helping our own population of Quebec and also all of these extra people that the province has either requested or basically re purposed at work in these long term care homes that the situation is still very much not under control there. You mentioned before that the number last week was fifty critical. Long-term care homes and now we're at one hundred that's right and I think that the government understands that the government Has BEEN SAYING TODAY? For instance they still called it a crisis that's unfolding. It's just ripping through these places. Our good friend of mine is now working in one of these homes. He's just a volunteer but he put it in perspective for me He said some people take an hour and a half to feed and if you are one orderly or one orderly assistant you might be assigned ten people while if one person takes an hour and a half to feed. You can't feed everybody like I. It's just it's it's a monumental dare I say catastrophe that's happening right now. And and dispatching such a large group of people to help with it. it's a big.

Those were the conflicting messages coming out of the baseball teams press conference today as we've told you on the show the astros cameras to steal signs meant for the other teams pitchers and then alerted their own batters to the pitch that was coming by banging on garbage cans. Major League. Baseball has find the Astros and strip them of their first and second round draft picks for the next two seasons. The team itself fired its manager and General Manager and today in Florida. The team held a press conference to apologize. Kind of. Here's astros owner. Jim Crane answering questions from the media. Mister Kramer. Do you have to say to the Yankees and teams that you beaten? Seventeen listen the the Yankees have had a few comments out there You know our opinion is You know that this didn't impact the game We had a good team We won the world series and will even that Jim when talking about the Yankees there. Did you say you feel like this? DidN'T IMPACT The game. What do you mean by that? I didn't say it didn't impact the game. Basically you know as the commissioner said in his report he's not GonNa go backwards It's hard to determine how it impacted game if it impacted the game and that's what we're gonNA leave it okay over here. Carry Sanders with NBC. News was this cheating. And how does this reflect the feelings of the nation right now where we see a coarsening of rhetoric in this country? Where people seem to want to win at any cost even if it includes cheating. Well listen we. We don't endorse The actions that took place. We apologized. you know. It's been tough on the team. Tough on the city and tough on the nation. I I don't disagree with that. But the only thing we can do is sit here in and say. We're sorry we're going to move forward in a positive way and you can be a positive force Delivering that message. Man Ask. Is it cheating. Excuse me do you use the word cheating. Was this cheating. We broke the rules. And you can phrase that any way you want. That was Houston Astros under. Jim Crane speaking earlier. Today the Astros are trying to get on with Spring Training and put the cheating scandal behind them but in general not everything is peanuts and cracker Jack in the League. Cincinnati reds pitcher trevor. Bauer had some tough words for Major League Baseball. Commissioner Rob Manfred this week specifically about the many things Mr Bauer believes Mr Manfred is doing wrong. Here's part of a video trevor. Bauer released though. I don't want to read too much. But like Gosh how they get this off my chest. Then I want to focus on solutions and things we can do in media rob if you understood media maybe the Commissioner of baseball you can solve some of these things like how and what are your biggest markets half. The fans can't even watch the damn game because of TV deals. I grew up. What got me into baseball as I grew up. Going to see one dodger gaming year. I've got a one year we didn't have money to. I'd sit out the bleachers. We listened to Vince. Going on the radio with my dad but we watched dodger games all the time. Half the people in local markets have blackouts. They buy the MLB package to watch their favorite team and they can't even wash their favorite team half the time. I know that's not all up. Rob As the Commissioner of figuring out man how are we supposed to spread the game power is supposed to get people interested young people the missing generation of baseball fans? How are we supposed to get them interested in the game when they can't even see the damn game and on top of that they can't even go to twitter? Where all the young people hang out not kidding and go to social media and see anything about the game I mean. Let's not even talk about like the shoes the cleats. Oh Hey Mike Clever. You can't wear those shoes that are colorful that everybody on twitter likes because violence are stupid clear policy where you get three colors of cleats like I mean what does it matter. Just let the players express themselves. I don't know that's I got so much more to say on this. Why got can't waste all my time on just pointless crap? That's not going to change that was Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer who was renowned for voicing his opinions on social media in a video this week.

Was it inevitable though I mean with the amount of debt that version was carrying? Was it possible for it to continue? Unfortunately I think you're right. It wasn't available in a sense but so many mistakes of been done during the past with the liberal government and the CAC is train just to make it work again for the money. We still have in this business so yes probably that it was inevitable but still It's it's kind of sad to see that we we put so much of our money. We kickers And I guess can eat as well in this business And the end of the day we have not been able to make sure that they were going to run this this shop well and and basically be able to run this company in Global World. So it's it's one big piece of the kick in that is going away that that's why it is at the end of the day so sad this big piece of Kim Baking. That is going away. I mean was. It considered a company.

Don't worry be at the everything's GonNa be alright or bus Are Nice people and they will not run away from Quebec and will keep all the jobs here when we know and it's it has been said this morning but by Minister Fitzgibbon into is in charge here tobacco that there's only a verbal agreement. You call that himself a soft agreement and then again We still have a one point. Three billion in this in this business and we we. We learned this morning. We have probably last six hundred million our this one point three billion and we will eventually get it back but it's not sure and we have to wait till twenty twenty six. This is what I call a leap of faith and just for people outside of Quebec in case they don't go when you call say CAC government. This is the Coalition Avenue to Quebec.

Give it another chance. give us some money They they had to make a leap of faith many times in order to keep body afloat and so I. I just wonder if from you. How badly do you think this company has been run very badly so many bad choices and the thing you know In Quebec what makes people mad about about. It is the money the public money we put into into it of course but is the fact that every time that about the came back to get back begging for more money we learn in the weeks and months after that the big buses of bone belts were granting their themselves big bonuses And talking here about millions of dollars a year so I understand my my courage to be really mad about going out and it's It's it's Sad because we're losing this this beautiful company and the eight to twenty what we call what we used to call. The series is a very very good aircraft. And it's gone. It's gone to the French and the German and we know that the buses that have made all the bad decisions are richer than it never richert never so it was from the start of a bad deal for taxpayers.

"And this was just one of the controversial policy promises from this year. I mean we talked a lot on this show about built. twenty-one which would restrict some public service workers from wearing religious symbols bulls on the job many think discriminates against Muslim women in particular is really awful for women right now women and where the the hit job like me have been Are being harassed in this trade they are facing a negative commands and there are a lot of opponents to it and and it's currently facing several legal challenges right now. Do you think this values test from what you've seen from what you've read the people you've spoken with. Do you think it will face. Similar legal challenges challenges. I don't think so I don't think it really has the same first of all it was a it was part of. It was not a law in the same way that bill. Twenty one is adopted in the official gazette in Quebec. It's going into effect January first and like we talked about. It's really more of a kind of a signal that that this government's committed to these values but the the actual impact is not as far reaching as Bill Twenty one which is having real effects on people who wear religious symbols who want jobs in the public sector So I don't think it's going to have the same kind of Long stretched out out Legal fight for sure Because Bill twenty-one is something that's going to be debated for years to come.
"quebec" Discussed on The Big Story
"I don't think it was a sort of big issue. I I would say on the local level There are a lot of questions to Bernie about-this about how he would buy local level. I mean his own race in Yes this is writing. It was writing for eight years So I think on the local level there is some a lot of conversation between him and the conservative of like how do you how can you say all those things about immigrants in all the wild talk like talk about how you want to help this region economically you know. Yeah but I don't think that the federal level a lot of the conversation front Monday using Quebec was built twenty one. That was like the whole conversation about this. When you talk to people in the region what do they think they have to do to kind of balance the needs of this has to work well enough to convince immigrants to come here it also has to work well enough to make sure heard the people in the town are willing to integrate with it and work with it to welcome them and it has to work for the company to earls? They're gonNA shut down. I think the first strategy gene. So that's something you see a lot From regional recruiters and Michelle is selling the region. It's like Oh look at the landscape. Look at how peaceful your life will be here how how Lo- costing your life will be here sort of making your region attracting to people and that includes immigrants but also includes people from Montreal from other regions in in Quebec. That's the first thing because you're essentially if you're going to move the company and if you're going to be offered a stable job you're leaving behind Montreal or you're leaving behind hind your your small town or you're leaving behind where you're coming from from another country. You WanNa have a nice life because that's at the end of the day. That's what you're going for. You know you're GONNA work nine to five for Friday but then there's a life rounded so schools. You know like a lot of people were telling me that in two thousand five. There was a similar experiment experiment where this other small town recruited twenty-five Latin Americans immigrants and it was a big issue at one point because all these kids allowed some of these kids reach reach high school and it closest high school was forty five minutes away by bus right and the parents were like. What's the point of US living here? You know make will move to that town with a high school and ourselves will transit to ah work if we need to so. That's the big the first thing it's like making your region attracting and making region so you see all these ads of like oh discovered bows and you have have these recruiters bringing buses of workers from Montreal. Recent immigrants bring them to the region showing them around. That's the thing that's really interesting and it's sort of ironic because I've always been trawlers. A lot of people that come in live in big cities don't even know about the Quebec themselves. You know So that's the first thing. The other thing is really focusing on been encouraging young people to go and learn these professional skills. So now you have these Schools like almost paying pretty much paying students and study to study skills so that a year later they're ready to work in a placement is incredible because there's tons and tons of jobs available I think those are it through sort of access of sort of work. That's being done to attract people regions and try to make it work. And how do you convince the people who live in those regions who admit to anti-immigrant sentiments that they need these people. It's hard like we've I. It seems that Quebec has been trying for a number of years like even sort of in Montreal to make people understand that we need those people to maker region workers. We built this country and we built this province on immigration. And people coming to help us you know. I think there's been some efforts in some towns where the immigrants will be welcome in the community center and they would meet residents there and just talk first part because a lot of it is not communicating the language barrier and not understanding other people's lives and not understanding understanding how similar their life is to you. I mean at the end of the day they might be from a different part of the country but for example these Latin Americans. They started going to church on Sundays. That's it's very similar to the life of these French quebecers Catholic French quebecers for many years. I mean obviously. That's another story but the religion has gone away from public life in Quebec but still in small towns. Religion is but that's a bridge you can bake but at the end of the day it's hard. It's very hard because these people live insular lives and in a small town. There's not much do so the opportunities to connect or very few. So that's why lead these meetings and I've been I've asked the mayor of that up to the lake are there. There are any other plans to bring those two groups of people together and I talked to him this summer and he was like old December will see by the time those seventy five Colombian workers. There's seventy five Columbia workers coming in sort of waves. And when those seventy five Columbia workers are there. We'll try to organize something. But that's the first part speaking for example Tibet at breakfast she she was telling me while they haven't come to my place yet But they don't need to also like as in it's not like they're not obliged to come to your place and come to you you also can come to them Your your resonance now. They're not different from any other residents. Is there anyone or is it just the mayor kind of trying to bridge that gap and bring those people together. I think so like at this point. He has the most power in this. You know he has the power to tell to organize something in a small town of two thousand on May be his biggest advantage. Is that that you don't have a ton of people to bring together like. Maybe if you get like five hundred people you get a quarter of the town and people talk to each other. You know sure. And that's a really a good part that's on a that's one thing that's really working in his favor is that he can make this sort of bridge possible. You know in a way that like a town of fifty eighty thousand like that's even more challenging. But he has the power to do that and he has the power even with a company to sort of bring everybody together because I company has a lot of willpower in the town. You know. So he's trying. I think he's trying but I don't know how I don't know how important it is for him to do that. And I think that's an issue. I think one of the points. I'm making the stories that we we often forget. The immigration is about like people you know don only about numbers and if you only care about filling those jobs at the factory and not about the life of these people then they won't give you serve that love back thanks Chen.

"quebec" Discussed on The Big Story
"Jordan Eighth Rawlings. This is the big story rush Wa say writer for the Walrus as well as the CO editor of the Sunday long read. Hey why don't you start because your piece starts in rural Quebec by kind of describing Both and I guess So boasts is a region just outside of in Quebec City. I guess it's unique in Quebec because it doesn't have a sort of regional center a big city. The way to sort of capital city region has Quebec City city. The Way Montreal is really big the way a baby in north has when a Honda doesn't have a huge city it has a lot of small municipalities and one of them. I guess it's really what you'd imagine from a small town in Quebec as in French Catholic white not all immigrants French speaking very small town with a small church population about two thousand three thousand and this town sort of revolves around around this company. The way a lot of small town do sometimes which is Kinda and yet. There's nothing special about this down that you would go to for. ooh For whatever reason you'd go to but this company is what drives people town so a lot of what happens in town hinges on what happens with a company and so what kind of dynamics are in play there for the town in general and its future. The dynamic is a lot of people were leaving which is a huge problem. First of all for the town and and The second is it's hard to sort of sustain businesses. They're small sort of businesses. You know like hardware stores grocery stores about things that don't seem important born but that Italian cannot live without. You know that you need in your daily life exactly and without a US sort of created this cycle where people are leaving because jobs are not available and because people are believing these companies. Are these sort of small business or closing. And for small towns that don't have a movie theater Like sort of big entertainment entertainment or whatever. If you don't have the small businesses would you have you have nothing you know. You have no reasons to stay. You have no reasons to serve live around or build a life around it. So that's St issue that this small town is facing and what's can role in this. Like how are they doing that company doing well. They're doing really well. And that's it's like the problem for the town was that problem because The CANAM is trying to attract people to town. You know like this. So they're actively hiring they're actively hiring. There's a lot of jobs to be filled in sort of factory so the Canam is pretty huge has offices in the southern United States. It has offices around Quebec. But it's sort of main factory actually read a lot of what it sells is built is in San Diego. And they're looking to hire one hundred two hundred people but did you come in in a small town under like why would move your way. What is there to do here? Whether why am I gonNa Establishment Life here and so the options are not coming or establishing yourself in another town you know like nearby why they need a car. You need to sort of live your life differently. You know not live your life as in drive to work five minutes and be work The way you the town wishes it worked for small town exactly to get everywhere Rasouli. So that's the problem it's facing is that the company's having success but the town's having success and and that's a problem you know like the goals of the two are not matching. So what is Ken am doing about that. Cam is going on recruiting missions which is seems crazy crazy for some people for especially for these people at small town to see on facebook as an example can I'm has a recruiting facebook page with like thousands of followers where they post pictures of them in South America going on these recruiting missions and it feels like probably for these people. It seems like crazy that the company they saw growing up and for decades and decades now going to South America on recruiting trip to Colombia to all these Latin American countries. Going to business sort of programs they're are creating partnerships and like trying to recruit people to come to their small town right so that's almost surreal and that's real to businesses around business leaders around there. These these recruiters are going there. And they're like oh you'll have home there. We'll we'll have a home for you. We'll have a life for you for all. Have everything for you. You know you just need to move to the small to move to the small town and I talked a business either. She's like can you just imagine like just think about a company like telling people that will have a house for you if you move. We're here this like it's it's it's a sort of like a research so far ahead of like what you think. Think of recruiting as just all this guy finishes school the go-to local company and he'll work there for forty years. Ram doesn't work anymore. Young people in Quebec don't WanNa work in rural regions. Miss Small Town two thousand uh-huh you want to go to school. They want to do three your program. They want to be specialized and that's a real challenge. I mean people. Don't aspire to work in a company like that anymore. That's not a goal so they're looking to foreign workers they're looking for foreign workers ender sort of like working very very hard to attract people to go to professional schools. You know like you need to go to professional school a two year program where you learn you know like wellbeing and all these sort of like right skills and immigrate to Canada and they're not only a job but maybe even a house waiting for you exactly. How does that sit with the community and boasts in particular that this is happening in their backyard? I'd say it's it's hard for them. You know it's hard for them to imagine her town being different than what it was for so many years. It's hard for them also because they still think the people in town. There's enough people in town enough people in the region that can fill those jobs this sort of frustration. You always often hear of. They're taking our jobs but they're not taking your job. Nobody's taking them. There are in Quebec right now. Dr. Over like one hundred twenty five thousand jobs available then have nobody. There's nobody to they can't wow. I didn't know that that's that's the problem you know. And so that argument doesn't work anymore and that's why you understand. It's much more sort of personal for them than just practical that there's something else there's something else going on so there's been some focus groups and there's been some conversation in Sanjay all some but like more in bigger towns like Saint Giles which is a bigger Bigger fifty fifty thousand in population. That's a big sound region and there's been some focus groups where people are ask. Do you feel about it. You know and we'll get six people in the room or get sort of a pulse of what's going on in town and people Boura Lake. Well we don't want the rent them apartment because they'll sort of don't WanNa pay the rent and the all sort of like vandalize it. Whatever there's a lot of fear you know and the idea the of like oh it's great that we have people coming and working for a company and the idea of them living next door to you and living in community? It's different you know have to get past is the racist exactly as I said before you can even enter exactly so it's a big adjustment to those people and I'm not asking you to speak for the people in the focus groups but is there a sense from people in that town and the others that like they're holding back their own future like this is this is what the town needs to stay alive or one hundred percent like the right now. There's no grocery store in jail. The clause two years ago and a lot of these people I come. They'll have car. Mayors like boyfriend will have a grocery store Dr. They'll never come. They'll never stay. We need a grocery store so like as much as like there is weird feelings about them coming. The mayors like well if they don't come redone like like this is. Yeah so he's sort of the mayor sort of put in the middle of trying to understand what his residents want and also sort you've have a talented exists in five years from now all the while. Sort of dealing with the pressure of the company saying I. I cannot speak that pressure from the company what I can sort of imagined that at the company's speaking time and communicate with him that like what if there's no one living here and there companies the only thing in town you know yeah literally. So he's kind of put in a position vision of like managing a lot of what's going on in Quebec sort of a microcosm of a lot of what's going on in Quebec that was going to be one of my next questions is how is this played out in other places in the region or the province around Canada. It's it's a lot of it's very similar you know. I think that what's different about. This town is that it employs that company employs seven hundred people seven hundred fifty people around seven hundred fifty people in Italian food out the two thousand what's happening for example northern Quebec around the border of Timmons in northern -Tario in town. They win a Honda in Van. Dov is that there's a lot of people employed in those areas but for example like restaurants Ron's stores like ritual store. They're having a lot of difficulty recruiting people. Because you have a lot of high paying jobs but not a lot of sort of low paying positions -sition that are filled So I guess it's different that way but you're facing the same issue you're trying to recruit people to go too far away regions when a lot of people but when they learned about Quebecer here about Quebec think about Montreal so convincing them that there's something else is such a huge step to make for the government you know because you're you're telling people to go. Oh so far away in search of better life when they've left so much behind already like. Do you really want to make sacrifices when people from Quebec that are born Norwegians agents themselves. Leave if you were to go there and learned that everybody left. It'll be a weird feeling because you'd think well maybe the these people had a reasonably. WHY WOULD I go? Therefore relieves you know is there a town Somewhere in Canada that has managed to make this work that we can look to say actually they managed to make themselves is appealing to emigrants and have them come over and join the community and they're better off now than they were years ago. I don't think there's any sort of Cinderella stories I know in New Brunswick. There's been a lot of efforts for those sort of lumber industry. Timber Industry to recruit people in some towns have had a big increase in population in in his states. It has worked. I mentioned my piece. Some cases states like Long Island. Where a town of two thousand which is really comparable to jail? I got an influx of American workers. Twenty years ago thirty years ago and now the town is booming. You know it's on. It's like a resort town and it works because of a lot of people coming nothing compares first of all. What's it's happening? Quebec right now in terms of like how much labor needs there are and I don't think also we've had those labor shortages in Canada like for a while rights issues. We're facing facing so a lot of this is like unprecedent like it's sort of like trying to figure out as we go so I cannot point to like one story that really embodies everything that happens for example in northern Ontario. A lot of these sort of mining towns have had to open offices in Toronto to attract engineers and people who work for them. So they've had that that opportunity to sort of make their way around that problem in Quebec. I don't think there's one specific case of like everything rent R- right. Was this an issue issue in the recent federal election because obviously when a lot of people here both They think of maxine.

"The closest points. To Newfoundland the island is blonde blonde. I don't know. Let's see can't really tell how much of a crossing that. As it is. Okay. How far is it to this, blah, blah, blonde? Well, I'm looking at Massachusetts. I'm looking at the distance from Boston to Montreal. It's. Okay. Quebec. Quebec is a long drive Quebec. Is people say it's not it's eight hours, man. It's just eight hours seven hours anyway. So it's one. Two more Quebec's. You gotta go to Quebec City and continue that major distance like another sixteen site twenty four hours to drive. Maybe more because I bet you the the roads are all weird and small and curvy. But they must be nice. That's a good idea. And by my reckoning, the only road goes right along the coast. So you can go Quebec City. I I did that I went to Quebec City and then crossed over into Maine right at the top smy went. Maybe I don't know a hundred miles up, maybe maybe not that much, but you keep going and going and going. These French words port Cartier Bank. Komo. Rivera de loop. It's like another country up there. That is a good idea. Pack up the car and just go go go. I've always wondered what would happen if you just went. From Boston to Montreal and kept going and going and going just do north because you can get up. I think you can get to the Arctic circle just driving pretty close. You get to the northwestern passages. You get to places like none of Baffin bay. And you get very close to Greenland, and then you kind of close is lent. Okay. Check this out the distance. From.
