That's going to become possible for people. In europe finally shannon and uk travelers to the us loud in today they were briefing trying to be faster. The the u Media was trying to be faster than the uk media in announcing that they had convinced. Joe biden to allow us all back into america. But i'm quite happy about it. It's high time what we will have more on that in coming days. I'm sure but i to canada the citizens of which voting only parliamentary election on a monday. The widows it is a snap election held less than two years since the last one has been called by prime minister justin trudeau in an altogether transparent attempt to turn his minority government into a majority government. The peril of such gambles of course is that they contain the possibility of turning prime ministers into backbenches and shortly thereafter the authors of aggrieved memoirs will joined now by thomas lewis Monocle toronto bureau chief but today is not in toronto. Thomas your in montreal. How important is the quebec. Vote going to be to whatever today's outcome is. When i think is going to be pretty important. I think a lot of people will be looking. How cabot is votes today. And if you'll indulge me and painting a bit of picture andrew. I've just been to a polling station here at the old city of montreal absolutely glorious neoclassical silver domed building just at the waterfront where i spoke to one of the election workers there who said when the doors opened at nine thirty. This morning there was a line around the block in that uptake could been pretty brisk and i think the most interest will fall upon the block. Quebec watt today. Which is the last election in two thousand. Nineteen was the third largest party in the national parliament in ottawa. Even though it's just a party that's focused in quebec. They don't field any candidates in any other parts of the country and since two thousand nine hundred eighteen The blocker becua- had thirty two seats and the the support for them appear to be dipping slightly so that really felt like the appetite for just introduced liberal party the conservatives the left-leaning new democrats they all. They have a chance this time around. But the block because lidove run-through blanchette is had really quite a good campaign. He's a charismatic. Former provincial leader. He used to work in the arts here. In quebec he owned his own artists management company for a while and at things looked like they were rumbling on sort of as status quo for him but then they did come a turning point about a week and a half andrew worth support for him really has started to take up well. The book quebec Have of course being striving to free quebec from beneath the boot heel of ottawa. Since the early ninety s an why do you think it's taken until now for people to take it too seriously as they are well. It's interesting if you speak to people in quebec i mean. That's been the working premise for them. I had an email from a listener last. Actually who described the only sort of important factor of this. This election is being quebec versus the rest of canada that that was the only sort of issue at play if you ask anyone else elsewhere in the country. That probably isn't the odds that they'd give you about what's important in this election. But i think the turning point for you from sabra and the block. Headquarter came about a week and a half ago at the english language leaders debate at the canadian museum of history and gatineau which is here in quebec just across the river from from ottawa and the moderator about to betas blonde shatter pretty plainly wooded question about a controversial law. Bill twenty one as it's known which was implemented here about a year and a half ago Which is most famous for for. Banning religious symbols for most government workplaces including the hijab jewish kipa and crucifixes and the like and he was asked whether that amounted to quebec being discriminatory place and hear clip. Now andrew from that debate between ami paul who is the first black woman to lead a national political party here in canada. She's the leader of the green party and blanchette and she put pretty plainly to him too about whether this this bill. Twenty-one meant that quebec was a discriminatory police. we can hear it now. I think i invited mr blanchette to get educated about systemic discrimination. I extend that invitation again. I would be happy to educate them. It's lies to want to educate time. Sir it is time to insult people that was not. An insult was an invitation to educate yourself. This is when i was at that debate. Andrew and he can hear pretty tense stuff and after the debate gaggle of reporters gathered to question the leaders for about ten minutes. Each and went blanchette arrived microphone. He didn't wait for the the reporters to ask him anything he just started saying in french. How quebec was not a religious place in his party was the only person that would stand up for preserving quebec's culture that really put all the other leaders on the back foot to and they had to sort of effective support him and say that they didn't think that quebec was discriminatory place either. And since that moment we've really seen the support in the opinion polls during this campaign up for the blockheads qua- which could have a big effects once all the votes accounted on the the larger makeup of the parliament in ottawa. So it really will be one to watch. Andrew as people continue to cost votes throughout the day today. Louis thank you for joining us.

Colbourn was born in birmingham england in eighteen eighty seven.

Harry joined the military when world war one became too great to ignore and he hopped a train to quebec for basic training. It was on his way to the camp when he encountered an odd sight. A hunter had killed a black bear and taken. It's cub to sell at a local trading post. Harry gave them twenty dollars and in exchange he took possession of the bear cub which he named winnipeg after the town where he'd been living. His plan was to raise winnipeg for a little while before releasing her back into the forest. Unfortunately harry's plans change very quickly. Winnipeg became a hit among other troops. They played with her and let her stay in the bunks where. She slept under harry's kat that she grew however winnipeg got too big to live indoors and was relegated to outside like a kind of watch bear for the soldiers. The more time they spend together the harder it became for harry to let go. He in winnipeg had grown close. So close that. When he was ordered to go back to england to fight on the western front he refused to release the bear back into the wild he instead snuck her into the ship with the other troops together. They traveled to the second canadian. Infantry brigade camp near stonehenge in england. Harry let her roam free for a while they were there.

Wermer what we know about this. Yeah so i'm going to start by saying that. Fda has said that there is no. There is no approval for use of average or quebec nineteen. And there's no scientific evidence that ivermectin works unfortunately today no clinical trials of show that works for It is a disease that by the way is used for parasitic infections in humans as well but it's nowhere near the amount of evidence that we can use it in practice. Having said that right there is a need for.

Antivirals could be used. But in the interim you know we've seen the statement from the fda. The american medical association actually associate actually came out and said the same thing today as guidance to physicians who might be prescribing visitors.

"I'm jordan rawlings. This is the big story. Judy is a veteran journalist. With cbs's the fifth estate which has been following the story for over a year. Now i guess. Hey judy let's jordan. It's been that time. Time has no meaning anymore really. but why. don't we rewind all way to may twenty twenty when when this started what happened in campbellton new brunswick campbellton new brunswick was coming off a high.

When to use Jargon with Paul Copcutt
"Was having a conversation with the client. Just the other day and i suddenly realized that i have been very guilty of overcomplicating something or perhaps maybe not even complicating assuming my client understood what i was saying from a pre in a previous consulting corp. I was having with them. And if you know the old analogy or the older explanation what is hume stands for. If you assume that it makes an ass of you and me. And i was definitely guilty of this. We were talking about lead magnets and in marketing in when you talk about. Lead magnet sits very common term. Market is talking about it all the time. You might be familiar with it yourself. You might be using magnets here on real estate. Investing business and marketing. But i shouldn't shouldn't assume that everybody knows that and so i was having this conversation. Move declined and then she shared with me that in fact she'd had to go away and kind of find Do some research and find out what a lead magnet meant. And so that really did underline for me that we need to be very cautious when it comes to jock and industry jargon. Show a good example. Might be the name of this podcast. Rei branded when i when i was kind of coming up with a name for the podcast the feedback from people who are outside of the real estate investing space is that rei. I didn't mean anything. In fact i think there's a quebec store that is rei. And i think it's an outdoor pursuit type business. Maybe and maybe in the us. I can't remember now. But i left. It still kept it as rei brandy. Because you know my target market all real estate investors and professionals associated with the real estate investing business so i felt comfortable and keeping that that acronym in as part of the name of the podcast but when all having conversations and i've been doing a lot of reading and kind of personal development professional development around marketing recently for my own business and in that in that research and doing a lot of reading there is a lot of use of jargon and and even i was having to kind of go in and won't hang on a minute. I don't quite understand what that means. And sometimes we do spend so much of our time kind of focused within our own space within our own industry within our own markets that we forget that sometimes. We're we're over complicating

"quebec" Discussed on Party Lines
"So i mean that doesn't sound like someone who wants to get involved in constitutional Fight that that's for sure. It also sounds like someone who has come to terms with what he believes. this means he is. The prime minister is talking. They're alluding to emotion Under stephen harper that concluded that the house unanimously viewed that the quebecois not quebec that the quebecois formation and then the second part of that motion was inside a united canada. So it sort of did a couple of things it recognized The quebec is different but it said quebec exist inside this country. And the way i will go who was himself a separatist for very longtime including very long ago when i covered him And is now more of a nationalist. What will it go is trying to do. I think is to tap into some of that stuff around identity and defining quebec identity by using language. Yes but also by using The distinctness of quebec. I'm a constitutional expert and there are lots who say that. In fact he can't do this but i mean it's so fascinating to me that the prime minister is just like. Yeah all right i. I'm good to go on this right. And he's not the only one that is one source of a place. You'd expect some kind of push back on this idea but like we are seeing other places where you'd expect the perspective come just not delivering on it so like one. Fundamentally of the story is alberta's not that mad about it jason. Kenney said he's always thought that alberta should copy quebec and the way that back defenses interests. And i actually think that might be clueless. Do maybe could happen here. If the quebec gambit. I don't know maybe nova scotia will amend the constitution to protect the rights of the joe plaskitt fans. I'm not sure. What other provinces could use this for but the protest that one for the i would just start across the nation. You've no standing here. I'm very sorry go. Plaskitt should be protected. We should actually say like the reason. This is possible. I guess i for the process near too excited about the story is that quebec is not using the big constitutional amendment formula. That's like when you have to get two thirds of provinces containing fifty percent of the population and a wizard..

I know all the reasons people are obsessed up to all of them and i apologize deeply. Montrealers love when montreal is spoken about especially in something american but the irony is that as soon as we get that acknowledgement were immediately critical of it.

So you've been in the us for reading longtime right. Would you consider yourself as a canadian or a canadian american. Now i'm a us citizen and Still have family in canada and still try to visit a couple of times a year. But this is my home in tallahassee. And that's wonderful. I know that what i'm about to ask you is is a tough question because oftentimes it's harder for people to talk about themselves and put themselves into a box but i would love to learn a little bit about some of your core values to who you are and on your cultural identity. So how would you define new cultural identity. Certainly as you pointed out. I'm from canada so growing up. Some of the debates and controversies that we had in the sixties and seventies included a role of french and english languages and cultures in canada and the role of multiculturalism. That there was a lot of new canadians coming from different parts of the world and also their relationship with first nations who have often instill Experience discrimination ill treatment and so's debates. I think kind of shaped my sense of what it meant to be a canadian. And what meant to be a citizen in a country where you have those types of debates animating public discourse and when you're thinking about some of your core core values what are some of those things considering you know your background in canada and was issues of multiculturalism in the air i think Interest in other cultures is one thing that i've enjoyed and really benefited from over my life and also a respect for other cultures my own personal intercultural Experiences included working for my sister and brother-in-law and a farm in quebec when i was a teenager and then after high school doing church service project in mississippi and arkansas and united states and getting to know people in those cultures. So i think my i really do think that interest in other people other cultures one of core values and then trying to understand what it means to respect and understand each other. Sounds like you have a pretty multicultural upbringing. I know that you received your international affairs like myself but yours is from york university in canada than you got a fellowship that brought you closer to some of the south. Asian countries like india. And i know that you work is built on the foundations of diversity and you work with international students. You're very supportive of international students. You are teaching course on international communication. So when you're thinking about all of your personal experiences in canada in southeast asia on here in the united states can you give us some specifics. Specific examples of how these experiences shape your personal perspectives on international education. Certainly i think as a starting point We have to kind of understand that our personal experiences are one of many possible experiences that people might have in the world. So it's it's easy for students in the united states to think. Oh this is the way that television is. This is the way that people Communicate with each other or enjoy sports and so many of our cultural practices and focused primarily on media practices. we think. Oh that's how it's done and so a big part of my Focus on international. Communication with students is to try to understand how people use media. How the media organized. How cultures organized in different countries. So my courses themselves don't focus as much on the the interpersonal intercultural communication which we think of is intercultural competency. But i'm trying to understand media systems and media use in different countries around the world. Let's talk about diversity equity and inclusion and higher education because this is a term that you know we hear a lot about and people. Do you have a different conception of what diversity really is. And what am. I look like in colleges and universities because for some people this concept can be purely domestic as opposed to others it could involve a lot of internationalization and international aspects. So for you. What does diversity and inclusion mean here at fsu. And how are we growing this concept on our campus. Certainly starting from the domestic debates the united states diversity equity inclusion would say. Well how do we include the The groups that haven't had access to education public services and economic activity united states so making sure that people of color people from rural areas people from you know less wealthy backgrounds Have access to the opportunities that higher education provides and certainly. Fsu has really taken some major initiatives in that area with student. Success initiatives with the care program Trying to welcome really support students and not just getting them into the university but making sure they're going to be successful in getting the support from a cohort of friends and fellow students from faculty and staff. So i think that's one area of diversity equity inclusion is. Who are we serving in terms of the students. Considering the role of international students is also important because they bring through their personal experience and their relationships with people on campus windows into the world. That you can't get in a textbook or just in a video so you get to know people and build relationships and that's hard even if we're sharing the same space. It's hard to build those relationships so one of the programs on campus. That does a great job with that. Is the center for global engagement. That has a whole bunch of different programs like international coffee hour to facilitate the building of relationships between students from united states and countries around the world so i think domestic inclusion in our programs thinking about international students and i think perspectives that we have in our research questions are research are another important part of diversity that includes international so many of our faculty have research projects that are all around the world. Learning systems institute is a research unit that has projects a lot of them in africa but also in southeast asia and so really strong record of international education consulting and then part of our curriculum and program what we teach what the subjects. What's the content of courses. I think is another of diversity that that's the job of university to open up the world and have music languages cultural studies as well scientific and you know engineering studies that really engage the world and reach out to the
Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway
"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units. They've had a huge amount of debt to pay down. Which is why they've been selling them off. We talked here about when they sold the series their airliner which was sold off to airbus. And this is going to be Job cuts all over the place in a separate article. I saw that. I think about three hundred people will lose their jobs in wichita allow the production is based another arrest. Seven hundred i think are being lost in either quebec or ontario of because there's some being lost in both provinces i forget which one was the most but one was seven hundred and the other was a one hundred so big impact All the way around it does really make party a instead of the cult conglomerate that it was with all kinds of different things including a railcar business very much a single business entity and we've talked in the past how feel a lot of the business jet companies. They've gotten multiple businesses Textron's a great example And so this is really gonna make them highly subject to the you know the ups and downs of the market and fortunately the markets in an upturn business jets are selling well but boy. This'll be a real challenge for them. The future i think when there's a downturn in the market bill. Lear william powell. Lear was also an interesting guy course. he's He died longtime ago in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight. So it's been it's been quite a while and we've mentioned before that he actually invented the eight track Which many of our Younger listeners are not gonna know what that is. Tell us what is that. Because i don't know what an eight track is. I had one of those In my truck. Back in the let's see would have been in the Early seventies but he was a self taught engineer. But you know what. I didn't realize is that he was actually a call. Your trophy winner. But not for the learjet. Do you know what he won the collier trophy for david. No i didn't know he won a collier trophy. He did for the f. five autopilot. The autopilot was for the lear jet. Not for an f five. That was a test david. You passed double checking very good man. So yeah now bombarded says that they're going to continue to to support the aircraft ecorse encouraging and really to be expected But yeah it's kind of sad to see an old name like that disappear all right we have From marketwatch archer aviation gets one billion dollar order from united airlines on the same day announces. A deal to go public Max united airlines united is getting interested in vitale aircraft.
Laurent Duvernay-Tardif: From Super Bowl Champ to the COVID Frontline
"He actually got his medical degree back in two thousand eighteen. My ultimate goal is to step on this deal with the md back pocket nigger dowdy. And he's the only active. Nfl player with a medical degree today. When the pandemic hit laurent decided that you know what. I wanna volunteer. Have this degree wanna be able to help out by. Read more about what was going on immediately. My thought when from oh my god this is stuff for me to. How can i help. Long-term healthcare facilities nursing homes. They were the hardest especially in the quebec area. Also in ontario where i am from. So laurent saw the stress that was put on the healthcare workers and he was like if i can just get in there and alleviate some of the stress on them as well as you know lifting up the spirits of some of the most at risk patients in the elderly. I'm going to do anything. i can possibly do. Our duty as a citizen to really think about what. Can i do to fight this thing. Just that biographical detail alone is crazy that this is a guy who managed to get a degree in medicine while playing right guard in the nfl and playing by the way really well. The chiefs signed him a couple of years ago to a five-year forty one million dollar contract extension but to get back to his medical career. I mean it speaks to this very unusual path. That laurent has taken to the league. So tell us. Where laurent from. And how do you grow up. Laurent is from a town outside of montreal. Thirty minutes outside of montreal. Mount saint hilaire quebec is obviously predominantly french-speaking part of canada and he grew up. Speaking french is first language. His parents were like you know. We want to do things different. I'm mired win. My parents raise me. They told me when i was a kid to take risks to take his dad who is a teacher and agriculture. Actually said you know what my dream to be able to sail down the coast with my family for a year long sailing trip so he quits his job him and his wife dee land along with iran his two sisters gotten a boat and sailed down the coast for a year all the way down to the east coast of the united states. Right down to the caribbean while he was there he was home schooled by his parents while he actually learned different life experiences. So they're sailing up and down the atlantic coast. What do they do when they're not in a boat like what's their business how they make a living laurent's grandfather owned a winery francois. His father was working at the winery and when they came back. They decided to sell the winery. Francois got involved in the culinary arts and he opened up a bakery and now they have several bakeries in the montreal area. So you have this fabulous this decidedly non traditional lifestyle that. They've embraced where they're sailing together. The running a vineyard. They're running bakeries. I mean this. Forgive me mathis. Sounds like the idyllic french canadian life and it's because of these very different childhood experiences matt that laurent doesn't even start playing football until he's fourteen years old. He commits studying medicine at mcgill a very prestigious university in montreal and he ultimately decides to play. Football at mcgill is well. What do you think you'll laurente to. The game of football laurent has always said that. He loved being on the field with his teammates. He loved working as a team much. Like as a medical doctor working on a floor with a team an operating room is kind of similar as football field in the sense that there's eleven people or twelve people working together and you've got to know where you fit in that team so i think he's taking. This is a dream. I want to play for the highest level in the sport that i can play at and obviously in canada. You don't have a long list a players that made it there but he He said his mind to and he says i'm going to do

Homeless in the winter, in a pandemic. A deadly combination.
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jacob launch is a reporter and writer based in toronto who looked into exactly how deadly this winter can be for vice. Hello dick how are you. I'm doing well thanks I'm glad you're looking at this topic. I know this is not a usual winter for people who live on the streets. Why don't you just start By telling me about the man who who started the story for you a who is raphael. Andrei and what happened to him. So i don't know much about rafael. A been to the shelter where he stays. I have spoken to some people there. And the general sense that i got was that In this happens with a lot of folks who pass away in the street You know is that. They're very caring very helpful. People the communities that they are part of they love being part of anti in this case Mr andre was certainly a friend of the shelter in the shelter is a friend of him. But because of the covid nineteen That was given for the shelter to shut down He was forced to sleep at side. Instead of being able to stay in stores following the death of an indigenous homeless man on the streets of montreal his body was found in a portable toilet. Just meters away from a shelter that had been forced to close its overnight services because a pandemic restrictions and it's it's not uncommon to you know many people i talked to who are harm reduction workers Or otherwise work with homeless people It's definitely not uncommon to For homeless folks who are using drugs to go into a porta potty because usually it is the only sort of Private space that they have available to them Albeit it is not a a healthier or safe place to be. Can you explain just a bit. Maybe about the circumstances surrounding his death before we move on to to the bigger issue you mentioned that he was part of a shelter community but he was not in the shelter. Why not an and how do those rules. Impact shelter yes so essentially. What happened was shelter had had an outbreak of covid nineteen in december. And so they were told that they could reopen the beginning of the year but they would not be able to stay open past nine thirty presumably this because people would be saying sleeping indoors spending more time indoors together Maybe during the day to coming in and out and there's less There's less of a chance of a spread of the virus. That seems to be what the municipal health authority believes So there was that nine thirty curfew way. It should be noted that it's this Nine thirty closing time is different than the provincial curfew that is currently Enforcing a being enforced in quebec and there has been calls to the premier Francois ago To give homeless people in exemption from this curfew. I don't know if that would have made a difference here. But i certainly think that. Some of the recent lockdown measures are Are certainly backfiring much. More than they did during the first wave on people who are homeless or otherwise experiencing some form of Lack of shelter right. Well as you mentioned. There's a pretty hard curfew in quebec right now in and it does apply to homeless people as well. What are homeless people supposed to do in a curfew that orders them off the streets so for my understanding that the general the german general message being sent by the premier by the police is that homeless people will be fine. They're not going to be ticketed. Although we've seen some instances were homeless. People have been ticketed. This this happens all the time. Even pre covid homeless people being ticketed for sleeping inside of bus shelters or being ticketed for sleeping on the street corner. So it's not really a covid specific thing but certainly the only people probably going to be outside during a curfew are people who don't have a home to stay in and so right now. Francois's logo the premier has said that there is no exemptions He said that his concern with allowing exemption for homeless people is that it would create incentive for people to break curfew in then saying that they're homeless When approached by police officer. Which i think there are a number of reasons why. That's not a strong argument. I mean you know someone. S i'm sure someone who's going to their friends house or partying or whatever they're doing you know trying to do after eight pm is not going to go through the trouble of disguising themselves as a homeless person That's the that's the premier said that that that they would disguise themselves as homeless people so It's i think it's a bit absurd. Also the other issue here which is that. This is coming at a time when a lot of people are not Other encampments everywhere because of not being able to stay in shelters but more and more people are kind of facing homelessness a now in the at least here in toronto in in terms of the frontline workers that i've spoken to They're meeting a lot of first timers. A lot of people who've never been homeless before some people who are in their mid to late twenties And for those kind of people especially these situations are are really destabilizing because You know you're you're trying to figure out how to get by day today And you're also now trying to avoid running into problems with the law running into problems with perhaps other folks that are outside so it.
Quebec Woman Walks Husband on Leash To Get Around Curfew
"Story is just silliness. A canadian woman walked her husband on a leash to get around strict curfew rules. She was she and her husband. They were find Each find thousand five hundred dollars. She walked him on a leash at nine pm. An hour after curfew. When they were stopped by police the woman argued. People are allowed to walk dogs on a leash within of their homes after eight pm. The curfew is implemented saturday night after quebec reported a surge of covid nineteen cases. Francois legault this. The premiere of canada quebec in canada implemented eight pm curfew.

It's an awful moment and it's incredibly painful for her family and for her community and people who are just learning about her. But do you think this could help create that change that you're calling for? Well, all the work in this process that they liked to call reconciliation has been done on one side. It hasn't been done only on one side. If reconciliation is a bridge. Then this bridge has been built only halfway. No more apologies we need to see actions and this is not the first situation I'm asked to speak on. This. Not This is not my first interview and I'm tired of, repeating? Myself.

Sweep it underneath the rug this has been exposed. Now it has a face and you know what? There are other faces up there and that need to be weeded out.

"Trace test and isolate has number spike in Quebec or the strategies that public health officials are turning to in order to stop the spread. But that province and the rest of the country may not be tracing cases well, enough to make any sort of difference according to a study from university morale. The summer as part of a problem that's in a province has been sounding the red alerts as we've been hearing Carla Change, you know is a public health. Co Author of a recent study on contact tracing with tatum morale researchers, Carlton. Good morning to you. Thanks for having to. Take a look at the situation just in in your home province are the steps that were announced yesterday. Do you think enough to help slow the increase in the number of cases in incorrect? Yes I think they will slow it down. I think they probably be even enough to bring them back down. What's next people say is that you need to be able to as I said. Trace intestine isolate figure out where those cases are spreading figured out how that spreading. You've been studying the impact of contact tracing on controlling the virus. In the best case scenario how efficient does it need to be to really make an impact? We talk about contact tracing a lot but how does it need to work? At it's at its best. Absolutely. So the main conclusion and we looked at all the studies that have been done for contact tracing cove and nineteen and contact tracing alone could stop the pandemic if you do it quickly enough.

And so we're seeing this manifests itself in these huge anti mask protests where conspiracy theories are clearly running rampant. and. Also seeing it in in the know this massive support online. But understand that in recent months it's crossing over now into actual security concerns. Is that correct? Yeah. That's that's correct. I think the provincial police have noted a staggering. The number of threats made to public figures in Quebec on line they've made several arrests. I've counted at least six arrests of people who've been arrested and charged with making threats online against politicians. In one case, it was it was against a journalist. And I think it would really demonstrates Is the danger. Or. The potential of conspiracy thinking to radicalize people and also, and all these people who who, I should've mentioned all these people who've been arrested all they're their all their social media activity indicate that there they spouse conspiracy theories. So you know it's just it just kind of illustrates that conspiracy thinking can lead you not necessarily, but it can lead you to to radicalize behavior online and a lot of experts are worried it's going to it's going to spill over into the real world. One of the the reason cases that stands out to me is this forty seven year old truck driver come from Quebec City Philippe coattail tell me about him. So could say was classified as an essential worker during during the lockdown phase, and so he has as a trucker was allowed to continue working and his lawyer told me he was somebody who was very very confused by all the public health measures yet to take all the safety measures to take as he traveled around and he started looking for answers online and the answers. He found online. We're we're we're conspiracy theories during the course of one of his work excursions into the US. He was in Texas. He places a phone call to premiere, Francois Goes writing office places one phone call and ten am ten pm in a very calm voice says I regret voting for you for us while ago and your days are numbered. Hangs up few hours later. Now, it's about two three o'clock in the morning he calls back now his distraught swearing and he says, I think I can get a gun and I'm gonNA shoot the public health directors, Harasser Arruda, and when provincial please traced where that phone call was made it show that it was made from the parking lot of a gun store. So that triggered alarm bells and when he came back into Canada border guards searched his truck and they didn't find a weapon but they found several bits of paper which had conspiracy theories written on them and he was arrested and he ended up pleading guilty shortly after his arrest to to uttering threats it was one of the first case illustrated where that online. Exposure can lead offline. Go I saw this survey Cacao DEBEC. Has received three hundred reports since March about Quebec politicians being threatened on social media and that is a four hundred and fifty percent increase over the same period last year. Yeah. It's it's an exponential increase and it's it's interesting to see. The kind of evolution in. Public thinking about conspiracy theories. So get conspiracy theories. Before the pandemic. Something we would laugh died You would consider you know You know crazy. You know people wearing tin foil it's not really a topic worthy of public debate. But in you know certainly in the last several weeks certainly think since that large demonstration in Montreal politicians Quebec have recognized that this is something we need to take care of this is something we need that deserves our attention the first day of the of the legislature This fault a motion was passed unanimously calling on the National, assembly to take the threat of conspiracy theories seriously and take some form of action, and so I think it illustrates to what extent the Quebec government knows. This potential problem. This is potentially not.

"Authorities up to how real this could get. I think what's interesting? What's what's been interesting and get back? Thank is that the politicians have have over over the months have kind of started to sound the alarm repeatedly press because they're the ones who are who have been the target of a lot of these threats. You know it's it's politicians who have been. Calling for stricter measures or supportive of stricter measure? No. Of course, in the case of primarily go implementing themself and so it in Quebec. I kind of started with one or two opposition politicians saying, Hey, look you know there's a lot of nasty stuff going on online where we're being a victim of WANNA threats and more and more politicians it joined their voice to to. To the to these concerns and some cases sharing the threats that they've been receiving and on the first day of the of the national. Assembly. The first day of the the the fall session of the provincial legislature here emotion was tabled calling on the National Assembly and the Quebec government take conspiracy theory seriously to recognize the danger they posed and that motion passed unanimously so. I. Think there definitely has been an in Quebec a shift in the public discourse about conspiracy theories that this is not just People intend tin foil hats spouting some weird stuff if there is a a real potential for violence here and. As. We've seen over the past months, not only in Quebec but you know as you mentioned the the Riedel Hall incidents that. You, know what happens? The activity that people engage in online rarely end there there can be a translation into off line at the real world's activity and I. Think I think really in Quebec were seeing on a realization that we need to pay attention to what people are saying on whether on facebook on Youtube or twitter. That has real world impact. Last question were you surprised by the time? You've finished the story of the the scope of belief in conspiracy theories how how nasty the threats can get all of that stuff or is this? You know what you had already assumed was happening I was I was surprised I. I'll be honest short and you know. I have monitored the the far-right in Quebec for. For several years reported on them the far right. You know achieved a certain popularity, but his always very marginal. The extent to which conspiracy thinking has now kind of gone beyond just that marginal element of the Quebec Society. Is. Rising to me I. Think. It's quite alarming to to a lot of people a in the province and I, think it. You know it comes with a problem that you and I face you know. A general distrust in media which seems to be seems to be spreading and people are looking elsewhere for answers and a lot of places looking for answers are engaged in this very pernicious for dangerous motive thinking conspiracy thinking and I and I think I certainly haven't fully thought through the impact that has On Canadian and Quebec Democracy, and I. Think during the story has forced me to to kind of engage in a more profound reflection on What this means for our society with this means for public discourse especially the moment now when Social Cooperation D- lead for social cooperation much higher if we're going to.

"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..

So now it's It's Airbus and we'll have to deal with her bus. It was already complicated and non-transparent with bo-bottle. Gee I'm afraid that it's not going to get any better with Airbus. 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. That was too big to fail. Yeah probably Now we are. We are putting our faith and it's a leap of faith with Airbus and basically what is the CAC government saying to us is? 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. I just wondered I to return to this. To what degree did Quebec have a choice? I mean the numbers of times that Bombards the CEO. Belmar would say that. Yes we're going to make this work. I you know. 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. But there is the that if you want an aerospace industry in your country if you wanted for Quebec ink the government have to pay to play and we did. We did see a big deal But I would add to that if we have to pay Can we just make sure that we are going to have a good deal for us or our public money?

"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.

"And as you kind of been mentioning is we've been going through this. There have been a lot of opponents to this. There's been a lot of controversy around it. But the argument from the provincial government. Is that this test is going to benefit. Quebec Society. Eddie he tell us more about their reasoning behind that. Yeah so the the real. The the line from the premier is that this will ensure that anyone coming here understands dance. Quebec values understands that. There's an equality between men and women and understand that there is a secular in Quebec and so it it plays off of this bigger Idea that what. What what this government's been trying to do which is really push forward this protection of Quebec identity french-language equality between men and women. And so it it does play to the base of the government. which really did? I want to see some of these. These anxieties satisfied all those accessories with symbolize the submission of the woman. That's not acceptable bowl for us. And then you're hearing from the other side people who are saying that this policy can actually be harmful what are what are those opponents saying also the test itself because like we talked about. It's really not that difficult to pass but it does have this kind of it signals. That people that are coming here. I don't understand these values. Some people we talked to some emigrant organizations that help people integrate here feel like it's really just playing off of some of these stereotypes and not really helping in any real way to address actual problems facing imigrants whether it be. He actually integrating into Quebec Society. Learning French How do how do a good job quickly. All those things From the perspective of people people working on the front lines with immigrants. Those are the real issues that need to be addressed and that so interesting And I wanNA talk about where this all came from was. He talked a little bit about the context. This was actually a campaign promise from the coolest Avenir Quebec. What did this values test look like originally when they rolled it out. Yes so it's something that the premier now premier has been talking about for a long time dating back to when he was in opposition and he has promised introduce this for years and at one point in two thousand sixteen he was saying that the Keeney would be banned under this values tests so it at at the time when it was first being introduced it was very sort of all encompassing making sure that Quebec values would be protected against any of these kind of religious groups that are coming here so in the campaign it again played out and during the campaign the big promise was that it would be part of the requirement to obtain permanent residency. And the big question there was can Quebec. Does Quebec have jurisdiction to do this. Can they say say no. You can't come. You can't stay in Quebec if you have to. If you if you don't fill out this form right questions about their promise promised that they would actually expel immigrants. You know their their original proposal being that they would give them four years after they arrived in the province and then if they didn't pass they would actually try to kick kick them out of the country. It makes us all worried that we are most protected if any governments can come and strike down items from the Quebec Charter and and put on hold. The Canadian Indian shorter than work predictions to really have yet. That came up a lot in the in the election campaign and during the debates because it was something that didn't really make sense that you could good As a province decide who gets to stay and who gets to. WHO Doesn't so. That was something that actually in the end isn't in the plan that was put forward. That's going to be in effect. January first because Quebec doesn't have jurisdiction over the permanent residency process. It only has this Quebec selection certificate..
"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 problems of small towns aren't unique to any one place in Canada and and they aren't uncommon. Either young people grow up and they leave for the city without new families. A lot of local businesses. Don't have new customers without new customers. the basic stores close. And then who wants to live in a town without the basic stores so nobody knew moves in and so on and so on until there's no town laughed small towns in Quebec however are a little unique many of them have jobs there for the taking good solid jobs that pay a real living wage. Nobody wants so. Some of these. Towns are recruiting new employees in places where a life in Canada might be an attractive proposition. They're offering all sorts of things to would be emigrants to seal the deal. Because if the town's largest employer can't find the workers that needs to stay open and it's all all over the company the factory the town everything and this is how seventy-five new Colombian immigrants find themselves on their way to the heart of Rural Quebec to a writing that was until very recently held by the leader of Canada's most anti immigrant right wing party and what happens. It's now well that depends on if the town realizes that its future depends on welcoming new Canadians because it does and this town is not not the only town that.
