We have a sense of that. So i talked with ali mokdad about this. He's with the institute for health metrics at the university of washington and he's been modeling this pandemic since the start he says what's going on in five regions really stands out so i that is an increase in brazil.

That's now started to come down so the fact that infections are increasing globally even parts of the us. We don't want to forget that. That really worries him. I mean it sounds like overall the world is just not close to controlling this virus. Do scientists have a handle on why cases continued to rise even with vaccines. Is it now all about the variants. Not points to the variance and lots of scientists do variants like be one one seven have become a dominant in europe and this has been found to be more transmissible. But there's another strong message. I'm hearing from a lot of scientists like angela rasmussen. she's just at georgetown. And as of this month the university of saskatchewan which is that these rises are not just from variants like the breakthrough masking and distancing another really important prevention

Interesting If True: Give 'Em The Goat!
"Well. Today we're going to feature a pig in a couple of jack asses you and me sadly this week show is one jack short. So in steve. Stead give you a fantastic tale of a canadian war donkey. Sergeant bill billy goat. He's done a donkey. He's a goat that's true. That's true those animals are not related but that joke necessitated me not knowing that out. I didn't know a word of war donkey was a thing. i guess. That's what this brings us to the i. It turns out that goats and donkeys lake together are the next two animals that are most popular as mascots after dogs and cats like military brands. And things like that okay. Cool actually i. i read recently. Something about donkeys goats goats donkeys goats being like the next fully domesticated house animals. Dogs were like that's been theorized. I don't mind goats that much but they are less cuddly. they've got horns and hooves heightens if your wife got her hands on a pygmy goat. It would be living in sleeping in bed with you and you know it awesome awesome. I sure i'm glad we don't know anybody who has a of goats and jim through glad. I don't know the code to get into your house to leave all those bunches of go. So our story begins in august of nineteen fourteen. Which for those interested started on. Thursday for greg and a wednesday for julian saw charlie chaplin's debut film making a living and that kerfluffle europe was having was picking up steam. I love your many history lessons kind of one of my favorite thing. They're they're they're good. That's important stuff to know. Don't you know and that brings us to broadview a small town in saskatchewan with a goat. Was anyone living in canada. Nineteen fourteen other than this guy with a goat. Yeah there were. All dave was a weird weird. Oh yeah i know david. He's a good guy. I met him down morton. Timmy's he's a buddy friend. Hoya on august twenty third. The soldiers of the freshly formed. V western cavalry expeditionary force had stopped in broadview to pick up some recruits. Wow queuing for the train spotted a girl with a goat. her name was also dave evans. Also dave develop. It's a nice day and wanting it for good luck charm and also because it was nineteen fourteen and you could just take stuff from people. They took the goat from young deasy. Kerr wayne to make it their mascot. They just they said sewri a ton a ton but they still took her took her so sorry. So this is art goto. Yes sorry. Dave oh so. Sorry so sorry. Davis zarko sources all agree. That daisy agreed. Soldiers could have it but there's never any mention of payment or how a group of soldiers from nineteen fourteen demanding a little girl give or pet to the war effort might have influenced her willingness to part with billy. Frankly i find it all suspect. I'm pretty sure some dude stole. They stole it from a little girl. I'm pretty sure they very politely stole ago. Do you think during the war. They'd like they'd like have a really easy missionary. Like god that was like stealing from a little girl right and then with the advent of candy after yield got over being terrible pre stealing candy from babies it was stealing goats from girls So so private. Bill was now properly conscripted. He lived in trained with the fifth in canada and their base. In england they pay for bill to cross the pond. They flew across the pond. Yeah yeah okay which was apparently quite some doing because when we get to the other goat like the british weren't big fans of foreign goats. I didn't. I would have thought so one of those things you don't think about but apparently it was a big deal so the fifth would soon be deployed to the front and i guess no mascots were allowed in the trenches just as like a general rule to the goat is something. They're gonna aim for all around the goat operation. Mutton went well the sheep but whatever so as you can imagine. This didn't set well. With the boys. The fifth who like many other regiments and both world wars found a creative way to endanger the life of their dear animal. Caban gosh do. They put him in a trench coat. Dress them up like a like a general. Like talk to general billy that way he will die. There was some officer related headbutting. We'll get into so according to sergeant herald baldwin author of holding the line quote. We cannot part with billy. The boys argued that we could easily get another colonel but it was too far to the rocky mountains to get another goat. I love that all right. all right. you can't fault as lodge racks tracks. The difficulty was continuing the quote. The difficulty was solved by buying a huge creative oranges from a woman who was doing brisk trade with the boys. I assume that doesn't mean she's a whore but she might be an orange for. Two-horse consists of bricks brisk trade. She was throwing oranges or briskly trading and tundra a continuing. The oranges sold like hotcakes. And in a jiffy. The orange box was converted into a creighton billy with shanghaied into the crate and smuggled aboard the trade. God that poor go-to person was stolen from a bomb. A tiny little girl that it was forced to train in battle and then it was stuffed in a box and then they put it in a box on a train and sent it to world war. One this is a tragic story. Eric why are you bringing such tragedy. This is this is just to say this is not having a great day so there you go now. You're a goat and just like a certain young naive aristocrat from famous askari. You're lost in a world wind of action intriguing warm beer. At least there's beer. Which apparently the soldiers beer rations and paperwork were apparently his favorite foods. All right at least. He got his paper foods. Yeah right like that could have been a lot worse and bill. You know you would go on to have a distinguished career for a goat. Are i mean you know more seriously. Though at this to sound a goat mix. I believe will. Apparently the british called it wires. Bill was found in a shell crater standing over a wounded russian soldier despite having his own shrapnel wounds guard goat guards you. Wow i what how would you feel oppression soldier waking up to a goat standing over your body protecting you in a shell crater. Lucky to be waking up yeah. I don't know what i would do. I would worship goats. I would worship right. I felt like i was trying to take an. It's gotta be warmer under the goat than it is under fire as yes later in the second battle of apis oh private. Bill stood his ground with brave canadian soldiers. Now famous for not retreating from germany's first major deployment of poison gas and despite what should have been a goat ending toxic cloud. He was found the next day no worse for wear like went on tin helmet or something like that some around ten helmet using their their orders. Then yeah that's right off orders. Just he really must have got their goat. Sheep goat for his steadfast valor. He was promoted officially to the rank of sergeant and february of nineteen fifteen at nouveau chappel. So that's nice. it's a good one. I feel like a for a goat. That's a good

Many of the households don't have access to the internet. This means many of thousands don't have access to emergency service. Notifications connectivity is critically important during fire season especially this year as fires have forced evacuations from homes and businesses. It's absolutely unacceptable for these tribes and many others living on tribal lands throughout the state of washington to not have access to basic reliable broadband.

Names erased: How Indigenous people are reclaiming what was lost
"You don't have to look very far to find Examples York region Ontario was named after your can the UK Regina is named after Queen Victoria Regina being the Latin for Queen and well British Columbia obviously. For Christina. Gray reclaiming those place names is vital and it's personal. The Simpson and Denny lawyer is one of two researchers behind reclaiming indigenous place names. The policy report was released in October of two thousand nineteen by the Yellow had institute at Ryerson University in Toronto. I've reached her at her home in Prince Rupert BBC. Welcome to unreserved thanks for having me. So you are a CO researcher with Daniel Ruck and you looked into naming practices and the erasure of indigenous place names. What did you find? We really wanted to do a cross section of the history of settler colonial renaming practices from indigenous place names to places that are an English or in French, or there's also note anglicised version as well and none look at what is the practice of reclaiming indigenous place names that is happening in various places are ranging from like the Northwest Territories, Quebec B. C. Saskatchewan Manitoba to give. People a different idea of what's going on across these places and territories, and so how do original place names get changed? You know from from the original indigenous words into you know the things that they become how does that happen? Basically what's happening as a result of mostly white people or settlers who were? Changing the names to suit their whims, our desires or values when places were being changed from indigenous place names, saedtler place names like we have to remember the population of Canada at that time was a lot lower than it is now yes. There were indigenous peoples on these lands and territories, but there is also a different perspective by settlers at that time as well, and so they I think they wanted the the places to reflect. What was going on in their life for different ideas that were important to them. I can think that Greek in Vancouver I was looking into the two sisters, which is now called the lions and a lot of people go heikal lions in in Vancouver, and they kind of overlook how sound and you can see them pretty much any point in Vancouver. But before they were called the lions, they recalled the two sisters and it relates to an oral history. Of The squamish nation and it's an oral history that also relates to northerners like myself because the oral history it's it's about making peace offerings between the northern and the southern people's. used to war with each other and so that has much significance to me as a simpson person who used to live in Vancouver the two sisters in Vancouver is definitely one that I've heard about Are there any other striking examples of renamed places that you found y'all like almost makes me want to cry actually there's a place that was called Lake Squat Kit. It's like near Kenmore, but the word squad specifically, Drago Tori term to refer to indigenous women and. Terrible. Stereotypes associated with it as well, and those are based off of how some settlers song about indigenous. and so you can just think about like it's a Grayson, deeply misogynistic but. People like had such a personal connection to the place name of squash it and like didn't want it to be renamed and. But like that I think has such a affect the way that you call places. And think about there are so many missing murdered indigenous woman in Canada and how you referred to that something that. So awfully in calling squad like those have affects real-life affects on people it's not just about placing. And is renaming more. Can it be more than just a symbolic gesture you know on how is renaming more than just a symbolic gesture i? Guess I think we always hope that naming practices or the revitalization of indigenous place names will go beyond just symbolic gestures who also have substantial effects as well and sue. Enrich policy really wanted to also look at like what are some of the mechanisms. In which indigenous people are. Using policy and Law to revitalize indigenous place names and so we looked up land use planning conservation co-management. Events and also modern day treaties and self government agreements in which indigenous peoples are using these different mechanisms available to on to re attribute and revitalize indigenous placing you know this work is being done by indigenous people. So think it's really important to attribute that recognition to them.

There are many I should and mateen communities nearby, but my connections are only in our common last names. Much Mateen tradition was wiped from our family and previous generations. The closest.

But technology and connection to the world is it's encroaching, but you know it's also. It's all right. You know you can't be stuck in the in the passes well, but we still can't forget the past, and then hopefully we can develop a better future for

Yeah I mean you said when and it is not like we're gonna live like this forever. You know even six to nine month timeline. That seems a incredibly awful right. Now is not that long in the grand scheme of things in you know in some countries where where they seem to have a handle on at the lockdowns are ending and people are going to go back to work soon.

Hydro rates have been cut temporarily. It's been changed to twenty four seven off peak pricing and that's expected to save the average home about twenty dollars bill. There are now over. Twenty six hundred cases of cove in nineteen in Canada Quebec. Now has the most with over a thousand and there have been twenty seven deaths across the country. The idea of Mother Nature as a personality is hundreds if not thousands of years old and just as old is the notion that if you piss her off she will fight back and in a crisis like this where everything is confusing and there aren't many answers. It is kind of comforting. Maybe to think that that kind of cosmic order applies to this. There's no evidence for that. Of course but on the other hand the more we learn about our world and all the systems that inhabit the more we learned that they are all connected. So no miss. Pandemic isn't the result of a vengeful mother. Nature out for blood but the result of it is a massive collective change in human behavior and that has ramifications everywhere. And some of those might actually help us learn in the long run once we find a way through this
Canada's response to COVID-19
"Candidate now has six hundred and fifty six cases of the current a virus with nine deaths seven in British Colombia one in Ontario and the latest one in Quebec Prime Minister Justin. Trudeau made an announcement promising eighty two billion dollars to help Canadians in these times. Our government is taking extraordinary measures. The measures were announcing today will provide up to twenty seven billion dollars in direct support to Canadian workers and businesses less fifty five billion to meet liquidity needs of Canadian businesses and households through tax deferrals to help stabilize the economy combined. This eighty two billion dollars in support represents more than three percent of Canada's GDP so workers who don't qualify for employment insurance can apply to receive the emergency support benefit every two weeks for fourteen weeks that can include people who have to stay home because of the current virus either because they are self isolating or maybe they're taking care of someone else. British Columbia and Saskatchewan have joined the list of provinces who have declared a state of emergency the US and Canada have banned non essential travel between the two countries. This will not affect trade.
Are you tired? Theres a reason, it's Daylight Savings Time
"I I don't know about you guys but I'm tired. Part of that is the ceaseless Rahm of end of the World News. Of course part of. It's just work or family or the everyday things that always get to me by the end of the week and this week in particular there is another reason. I'm tired and you know it. Or at least most of you deal with the exception of most of Saskatchewan and none of it. You Lucky Jerks Canada's sprang forward this week and if this world isn't seem bleak enough now it is once again dark when I leave my house in the morning every year more and more people ask why we have daylight saving time and the calls to abolish it grow louder and now we may in some places be ready to actually do away with except there's about of course there is what happens if some places in Canada eliminate daylight saving time but their neighbors either to the south or to the side. Do not put up some places decide to stay on permanent daylight time and others decide the opposite. What if every province and territory makes their own call and we end up with a maze of time zones the plays hell with scheduling things like sporting events are flights or deliveries. The last thing any of us want is they solution. Daylight saving time ends up making us even more tired. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story. Alex mckean a reporter at the Toronto Star and their Vancouver Bureau and she's Ab. As tired. As I am I out. How are you? I'm tired like I said this time shift always throws me for a loop. Yeah me too. I mean I was actually not only experiencing the time change weekend but I also flew to Toronto and then back to Vancouver so I've got double jetlag going on so your province is perhaps maybe on the verge of getting rid of daylight saving time and we will talk about that but first because this is a really good part of the story. Can you just tell me who is Ray Saunders? Sure Ray Saunders is a gentleman who just recently turned eighty years old and not a lot of people in Vancouver may recognize his name but they certainly would recognize his most famous creation. Refunders the maker of the Gas Count Skin. Kwok which is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the entire city of Vancouver. It's this incredible clock that is powered by steam and has whistled plays a tune every I think every fifteen minutes or so tourists come and look at it in the context of this historic part of the city gas town with. Oh it's a it's probable streets and they take pictures with it and Race unders is is the guy that built it. He built it in nineteen seventy seven and for a long time he He maintained it as well. Now it's maintained by the city of in coober but she wrote back walk and two hundred other public clocks in Vancouver Canada and all over the world to we can a year. He goes around to all of the Public Clark's in the city of Vancouver and surrounding area and he has been the guy who's responsible for manual we. Changing those public Clark's to reflect the time change at daylight savings time so He he describes me that during the this spring forward period which just happened this past weekend. Most of the public clocks they'll have kind of a speedup function and so it'll take about Six seconds he said that for the two wine forward an hour to reflect the new delay time and of course the the opposite happens during the fullback period in November. So He's been doing that for twenty years or so. It seems so quaint in a way but this might be the last weekend that he'll ever do it. Tell me about that. Yeah that's right. It might be the last weekend he ever does it And it's you know it's kind of fitting away because as described when we were talking. He's getting older. He unfortunately experienced a fall recently which which made ladder finding a lot more challenging for him. Of course you have to climb up the ladder in order to reach the public bases. So that's part of this task that he's been doing for for the last couple of decades So but personal reasons aside and personal limitations aside He also possibly last weekend that That this kind of topic will be required in the city of in coober because Bc is looking out just mixing the time changes all together And I I think you're right it it is. There is something kind of quaint about it if if I could just describe a little bit about Something that struck me talking to ray was that he has this really interesting relationship with clocks and time so I mean I'm a millennial and I will admits that most of the time that That I'm actually checking the time. I do wear wristwatches but most of the time I'm looking at my computer screen or looking at my phone that's the thing. That's like really intuitive to me. Ray has this this cool relationship with clocks. Where he says look. There's something lost when you're just looking at numbers on a screen. The clock face the circular nature of it the fact that the hands are always kind of moving around the tell us something about the time that has passed and the time that is yet to come. It's more You know accurate to the way that we actually walk through life and I thought that was such a such an interesting idea not anything that I considered at all so I think he his sense of affection for these public clocks in and the analog nature of them really came through so why is British Columbia considering getting rid of daylight saving time and how did that movement sprang up and come to be yeah. It's a great question And different people will tell you different responses as to the origin story of why British Columbia's dealing with this thing but I'm gonNA start with the practical elements of it. Which is the. This is a conversation that it's also happening South of the border in the western state so Washington Oregon California all considering changing to a permanent daylight time and that has pretty significant implications for us here British Columbia because we're coordinated with those states. There's a lot of commerce that happens between those days even things like as work scheduling. That happens along the West Coast and these are things that it makes sense to be in in the same time as them so Washington last fall passed legislation to change their approach to time to permanent. Be Lifetime. And that hasn't happened yet because they need the approval by the The Federal Congress there in order to make it happen but our premier John Horrigan Here British Columbia was in conversation with Governor of Washington State and said look. Maybe this is something. We're interested in in British Columbia is well. It's something that the the government launched a public consultation on. They sent out a survey and they received within the first month or so. They received more completed surveys than they ever have in the history of all public consultations on on this topic of changing to permanent daylight time so they received two hundred and twenty three thousand completed surveys Colombian yeah and overwhelmingly ninety. Three percent of people said get rid of it. We don't want time changes anymore. We just want a permanent time. Is that something that we see elsewhere in the world You mentioned it's happening already on the west coast of the US but also some parts of Canada. Don't have it as well. That's true and you know after I published this story on what? Bc is doing. I got quite a lot of emails from folks in Saskatchewan because the way described it in the story was that Scotch Wayne is on permanent central standard time but both insist on reminded being over over email but in fact according to the line to Scotch. When is that? It should be on mountain time zone for the same time zone as Berta so the fact that it's on permanent central standard time actually means that it's it's more on a permanent stay like time similar to what? Bc is trying to do so it all gets a little bit confusing but since nineteen sixty six scotch and has been the Canadian exception to this time. Change practice that we have been doing and the they've been on the most places in Scotland. Anyway have been on permanent central standard time. Alberta has considered it. I understand that there's also a private member's bill In Ontario on this topic. So if it's something that people are increasingly aware of but the one that I has really caught my attention in the last couple of weeks was the Yukon because of course the Yukon is also a jurisdiction along the west coast. And they've already pulled the trigger. They said okay. We went to move the clocks forward an hour this past weekend. And we're not going to change them again. It's just GonNa stay dot so Yukon. Who is the one that's most recently has actually made the changes that British Columbia is talking about? Making what is the case in this day and age for daylight saving time? Can

He wasn't so fortunate on the dance floor. He said I didn't get one dance and he told her we're going to do the whole big circle and I was going to go off. Mark Recall during an interview on the Ellen Degeneres. Show and she said Dad. If you embarrassed me I'll never talk to you again. But what she did do as she hung out with me. The actor continued. She sat there at the edge of the stage by the DJ. And I'm sitting there with one other dad and I'm like this is not an edited version of this song. Their explicit lyrics being played at a school dance for girls and I'm like no good told the DJ and he's like. Oh I thought it was and I said what are you doing? I'm hearing F. Bombs this man. It's not okay. So Song was changed quickly and ultimately mark was the first to admit that we still had a great time together and he didn't end embarrassing his daughter at the big dance. Oh by the way I know you need an interesting story for Ellen Degeneres but when you really needed to share no look at me. I confronted the DJ making his living doing sixth grade dances. I mean Yeah Oh. She says she decided fucked word. Fuck Outta Song but I said all the time around the house like a mark. If if seeking here that you get to get watching the movie I will no longer seek to be twenty okay. Let's get watching the more. You're movies because I'm pretty sure you say it a lot more movies. Well not all anyway. This story was interesting to say the least headlines from ABC News Headline College Recruiter fired for lining students up by skin. Color and nappy hair the sub-headline he told us to line up. Napier snappiest hair in the back. A college recruiter has been fired after controversial visit to prestigious high school after he asked students to lineup based on the color of their skin complexion and by. Who had the nappy hair? The incident occurred when the college recruiter for Oklahoma Christian University. What visited the harding charter? Prep School in Oklahoma City and allegedly told students. It was time to play a little game. He barely talked about the school itself. Scenario Brown a student who was part of the exercise I could already see through his B. S. basically wasn't really knowledgeable about how to speak to people even in a diverse school. The recruiter who is white then asked the high school juniors in attendance to self organize into a lineup from dark. Skin complexion delighted skin complexion. It didn't stop there. He told US TO LINE UP. Nappy hair in the back. Straightest hair in the front. That's according to Corey Todd. Who's another student the assembly? That's what I felt uncomfortable and I was like okay. This isn't right. You think the students were the only ones offended teachers left. They were crying and they were offended their faces. Just look disgusted. I know they talk with him after like. That's not okay Oklahoma Christian University to swift action against the recruiter. Once they learned the incident according to a statement released by the school the OC Council visited Harding Charter. Preparatory Academy is no longer on Oklahoma Christian University employees the OC admissions leadership did not approve the inappropriate activity in advance. And it's communicated closely with Harvey Administration since the visit admission staffer scheduled to be to visit the academy Monday to apologize to harding students and staff on behalf of the university. The recruiter has not been identified by either school. Oh he he needs to be identified because he didn't need to be a recruiter for anybody. Except we can K- k what the fog what the actual fuck and by the way. Why didn't somebody at the high school when he started doing that? Go WHOA WHOA WHOA. This is not appropriate. And just stop it right there. That's a good question. I mean maybe you let the first part go where he goes. Okay everybody because maybe he's making a point. Everybody lineup darkest to lightest. And maybe he's trying to make some weird point and you don't know for sure when he starts with nappy hair. As soon as that phrase comes flying out of his pile somebody should have punched him in his piles. Somebody from that high school needed to step up and go all right. This is over right now. Yeah get yourself ago. Yeah yeah this this is dot. I don't know what you think you're doing but it's stopping right now. We're not going to do this. It's not appropriate and we're not going to subject our students to it and if he was trying to do something. Because you know there's the but they don't even do that that commercial that way but if you're if he was trying to do something to make a point then that was something that should have been discussed with the school ahead of time. Yeah just say hey. I'm going to be doing this thing. It may seem weird. But here's why I'm doing it Yeah it's just very very odd that the a that happened in be nobody put a stop to it while it was happening so I I don't even know anymore I it just makes nothing makes sense anymore to me and just crazy crazy. All right Let's do this Florida. Land eventual impeachment and crazy. This is Florida. Kuna headline man arrested for Cal Manure battery now. He wasn't battering cow manure.

He was arrested back in mid November for allegedly threatening a man with a rifle but prosecutors declined to pursue that case Nice job prosecutors dumping cow manure.

"You didn't you wouldn't if you were black. When Joe Biden was writing a crime bill assigned the Crime Bill. You weren't argue with Joe Biden about what he was signing. You were happy that he was getting muffins out of your neighborhood because that was a totally different. You know you can. You can go back and analyze it from from this point backwards in black. Oh well you know you got all these people that are imprisoned for all of this long time you're not talking about the fact that there were neighborhoods. They were under siege right and that was the reason the whole reason why we need it. The Crime Bill was because things had gotten so far out of whack with a crime and you know because of the crack epidemic. So you're you're having that conversation about the people that were imprisoned who got caught up in that but you're not having a conversation about what was actually going on and why the Crime Bill was written in the fact that there were a whole lot of black people that were supporting the crime bill when it was been written because it was that bad. Sure I mean your own. Personal Safety is the first thing you think. And it's like that like I always say about the ticket. Kim Kardashian got trumped release. She was a crack dealer. Like go get somebody. Who's actually in prison for somebody who didn't do what they're accused right. So there's plenty of those people has pleaded those peop- I mean those people like that. Yeah but you're talking about things that you have a short memory on. It is like I asked the question today. Do you not remember the history that you've lived through right. No people don't people don't I? It's it's so funny that and and this is this is the interesting thing. So there's a lot of stuff on Netflix. Lately that are little short series like four episode series and I just watched one on John demjanjuk coups the the Korean auto worker who was accused of being Ivan. The terrible the Nazi guard An all of that and I didn't recall most now granted. It was happening when I was a teenager. So there's only so much news I'm paying attention to now. I'm watching one about the unabomber. Yeah and so i. of course I was alive. During part of the unabomber stuff and in fact the unabomber killed two people here in Sacramento. Not what I live here but It was one of those things I knew about the unabomber. But when you see something on. Tv for thirty seconds during the news. And it's like Oh this happened and it's like okay so no you don't because you you've got your life and everything else that goes along with it so it's like what's what's going on with that So you mentioned you mentioned Selma Mike. Bloomberg was controversial. Passer minorities and people of Color is not going away Because he got protested. During an event and Selma the billionaire media mogul and New York City mayor was among many Democratic candidates in Alabama to commemorate the fifty th the fifty fifth anniversary of bloody Sunday when hundreds of civil rights marchers were brutally beaten by COPS during a demonstration. But at this particular service at the Browns Chapel. Ame Church were Bloomberg and Joe Biden delivered remarks. A handful of people stood up and turn their backs when Mike step to the podium. It was done in silence and then they sat down when he was finished thoughts. It didn't take the hit eight. No no he doesn't He's still in and that's and God that is like one of the whitest things do you like. Oh so oh so. He's you guys. I don't doesn't matter that you don't I love that. Elizabeth Warren has just become a giant thorn in his side. Oh yeah she is. Here's the thing about Elizabeth Warren. She's really smart. She's made a few. She's made some questionable decisions here and there but God dammit. She's smart and she is. Tenacious of Elizabeth. Warren was a man she would be at. The top of the ticket probably. Yeah probably yeah and in the the thing is that with some of the questionable stuff that she's did so the whole Her claiming to be Native Day The thing that never comes out about that part of the conversation is would tribes. You don't have to be blood to be in the tribe. The only reason why being blood and being in a tribe is an issue is money. It's a little more complicated than that money. When you go through your life and your family tells you a story and then you repeat the story. Are You really being dishonest? I mean that's all you that's all you've known every black person who has hair like mine says that they have Indian in a family. Everyone if their hair's not kinky maybe they like oh we got engine in the Family Shar and but the thing is and I 'cause I listened to a podcast called I can't think of the name of now but and it's done by native person and that's the first thing she said one of the things he says in the PODCAST is that been in. The tribe isn't about what the reason is about. Blood is because the United States government. Apportioning what she could get as a number of Detroit based on What's Your What percent is of blood you were in the try to that? Y? Yeah it's It's an it's an interest it's interesting what's his name Jim Beckwith who's black was the chief of I think. Like two tribes. He came in Became a part of Dr became chief of I think like too. So it's it's the thing the thing that people forget about native Americans. It's not just one monolith right. It's so different. It's so different and varied from tribe to tribe and region to region. And having having a wife who is his native and her relatives who were not I get to see a little bit of the stuff and kind of the things that go on with with with different tribes. And it's IT'S. It's certainly not just one. This idea that white people most bar have that native means one thought. One thing and it really. Doesn't you know one of the things that trump complained about with the natives in the were all the ones that are in Connecticut Connecticut. They look black yeah he he's a racist. I know what I'm saying. But that's what I'm saying is that it's not just sure sure. I mean the Sopranos even did a wink nod toward it when they had the episode where they went to the casino and they had that but it. Just it's it's an interesting thing all right. Let's get all politics now. Well sort of sort of time to talk about Garth Brooks Garth Brooks was playing Detroit and Garth Brooks after playing before playing. Detroit tweeted at hidden tweety put on instagram. A photo of him wearing a Barry Sanders Jersey now Barry Sanders for those uninitiated. Great running back for the Detroit. Lions retired at the height of his career. He is probably the greatest lions player. Ever ever to lace it up and so it would make sense. That you're playing a stadium in Detroit that you would be putting on a Barry Sanders Jersey. However there are several people who wear red hats who took it the wrong way and it's funny because this video that I found Who This guy named Brent who tweeted Garth Brooks Bernie Sanders? I'm done with him. I thought as I was watching this. I'm like this is a parody pulling my leg and then I went to his twitter feed. And I'll go. Oh No. He's not so Videos for Garth Brooks you know. I've seen on Fox News. Do you think garth is just hanging out on his tour bus going. Well then Brent what you got for me that this past Saturday garth. You're in Detroit Michigan. Where the lions play and you had the balls to wear Sanders Jersey for that Socialist Bernie Sanders. Okay if there's anybody less likely to have a Sports Jersey then Bernie Sanders. I would like to point them out to me. Please do please. What happened you garth? I used to like your music and you know this is America. You vote for whoever you damn well please Bernie Sanders colonel. Sanders Belt Sanders. I don't care but as long as you're not voting for my President Donald J trump that I'm done with you so he does care. I don't care but if you're not voting for my guy that I'm done with you so you do care Brent deeply do care you might as well change your name from Garth to Darth. Because you don't want to the dark side brother and what's with all these celebrities talking about politics. Anyway you know making me question my morals beliefs as long as your political beliefs. Don't match up with mind than you need to keep your mouth shut and sing your little songs like we pay.

It tends to be what turns on my creative juices tends to be music like I will start down a musical road and I'll go from one thing to the next to the next and see kind of where I ended up and then that really is for me. It's inspiring to to create something to do something next question. What turns you off again. It's no it's not whining child. That child is no. I agree with you your your last your last question because I pretty much do everything to music right. I don't normally so for me to have music on is a little bit different and I think that's why it does. I think that's why it does and since I've been living with my girlfriend I don't listen to music like I used to. Because she has a she some weird sound thing that goes on in car so I I have to moderate because it. Okay Gotcha Gotcha Gotcha What is your favorite curse word? Some bids My my favorite curse word and I don't know that it's it's a politically correct this point but I like fuck card. I like Foxtrot. That's my favorite curse word. What noise are sound? Do you love of saxophone in a well. Played Guitar The sound I love is Yeah I'm going to take away from from like a BA- excited baby. I mean. Obviously that's going to be for everybody For me it's just a really cool guitar. Lick I absolutely love a great guitar? Lick what sound annoys. Do you hate talk board zone okay. And then they're just They're very aces today. 'cause they're things that I see or that emotionally make me have that feeling So for me. It's the default ringer on an iphone. Because I hear it in again like I was in Walmart the other day and I heard it because the people who generally shop at Walmart either aren't technologically savvy. Enough to change the ringer or they just don't care and the Ringer of course is on the loudest setting. It could possibly be an not not. That's that's the one What profession other than you own would you like to attempt When I was a kid I wanted to be a step me okay. That's a good one. Was it because of because of the Fall Guy. The soclean man. Well the fall guy was a stunt. Yeah yes Lee Majors and when I got older it was Dr Robinson okay. Yep He was like this. He was like a stint pioneer. Absolutely Boy. I don't know Gosh I mean I really. I'm really attempting something different now. other than my own something outside of communications and media I think it might be cool to be. A forest ranger might be cool to be a forest ranger. What profession would you not like to do? That is a good question because I usually like to try. Anything at least was sure but I'll go back over to the things that I have done and I wanNA say working in fast. Food probably was my least favorite farming farming is absolutely mind because That was leased entered servitude. That was my mom's my youth.

"Up into a mound usually four to six feet high again it depends how many people you want to sleep inside the Quincy at night but you pilot high enough that you can actually hollow it out so you let let it settle for four or five hours and then hollow it out and you build a little entry doorway to it and the way the snow compacts. It's a really sound structure that you can actually sleep inside for the night and you can sleep outside in the snow in the middle of winter in quite cold temperatures inside a quincy and stay fairly warm of course you need insulated sleeping bag in asleep in Matt. Keep you up off of the snow to build a quincy is an amazing experience in sleep in it the snow in the middle of winter in Saskatchewan. It's not for everybody but it's a really fun experience to have and I feel like it's one of those iconic experiences that if you grew up in particularly in smaller towns you probably built quincy in your gym class. Stay overnight or that's how did Migrate Ten classes in the back of our school we built Quincy's and you didn't have to sleep overnight in it but if you wanted to you could and I think everybody did sleep overnight in the quincy. It's just it's a lot of fun is that also in some ways not just fun for the kids but also a survival thing that if you get stuck out in the snow build yourself a quincy and Terai for is that why it's taught in school you definitely he could it would take you a while to build it so might not be the most efficient structure to building in terms of time. It's absolutely a shelter that you could use Prince Albert. National Park is a great park to do this in and lots of school group do come up in the wintertime. They do have winter camping sites and because they're national park they've cut the wood for you so you don't have to worry about going and getting your own would so it makes it a little easier for the bonfire that you haven't night and I like to joke to that. Camping in winter is just just is wonderful because you still have all the same great things this more as the campfire the good food and the best part is in the wintertime. You don't have mosquitoes which implies I do. I will see them in the summertime. Yes in the summertime. You do need to be prepared for bugs. So I highly recommend bringing bug spray or cream or purchasing. You can purchase little coils that you can set up if you're sitting around the campfire sitting outside with people like them up and it usually keeps the the bugs at bay and they can be from barely barely seeing any mosquitoes to they can get pretty horrible depending just on how wet the year is really. There's no particular month that I need to avoid because it's black fly month or something like that. When when you do head North definitely you get seasons for different types of bugs so I was just recently on a five day fly in canoe trip in northern Saskatchewan and we lucked out we didn't have a lot of bugs but we were also there late May early June and why not just this past weekend? I had a friend up north and she was saying that the mosquitoes were definitely out but she didn't say that they weren't unmanageable. She just had a mosquito net on and made sure to use bug spray was fine okay and when you say fly up further north so you're you're still not north from sus catch on in terms of that is a big place and the roots. Don't go all the way up some roads do go up. Yes so highways don't go all the way north we have a lot of grid roads or gravel roads in Saskatchewan even just in our southern area with all the farmland to a lot of it is gravel roads but the furthest north you can get on paved highway is about Ford five hours four hours north of Saskatoon. It's a community called Laurent. Which is where we're heading next? Mrs Where we're heading next. This is true outdoor adventure and so you can head up to Laurent and it's the last major town before the wilderness really takes over when you say major town but I believe Iran's probably has around two thousand residents living there yeah. He's a pretty small area but it's the last place you can get most services you might need. They have everything there and then an hour further norris of Laurent is a tiny community called Mississippi and this is a great base for taking off for that really bat country Wean northern experience in Saskatchewan so I mentioned fishing earlier. This is where you would head up to if you were doing a fly in fishing resort or experience and this is also Saskatchewan is well known for Whitewater canoeing so a lot of people don't think of Whitewater when they think of Saskatchewan and they even have a a Whitewater festival over the July long weekend in about they sell one hundred twenty tickets to it. It usually sells out and it's a wonderful weekend where people get to head north in a canoe or Kayak people bring out paddleboard. Sometimes people even bring out surfboard and there's lots of rapids that you get to plan and you get to do it safely to because there is a danger mannerist with canoeing and and canoeing rivers with rapids so you do have to be careful. If you don't have experience I highly recommend going with a guide. A specific Guy Churchill River Canoe outfitters rick from CR C._E._O.. Is Amazing. He will give you all all the information you need. He will set you up with a guide with ear with everything you need and you can basically pick. Choose your own adventure. If you want to do it. He can make it happen for you. Okay excellent out and is there anything else. We're doing up here. This is a place to. Who for canoeing fishing swimming experiencing that northern Saskatchewan boreal forest nature setting? It's a great place to disconnect whether you want to or not because if you had North Mississippi you don't actually have cell service so it's a great place to disconnect and reconnect and this is where the highway ends and we've just barely crossed over into northern Saskatchewan yes so technically you could you could call like Mississippi almost central Saskatchewan but for the rest of us who live in southern Saskatchewan we call it the north and then there is a grid road that goes all the way up to stony rapids and then again. There's you can catch float planes out of stony rapids to head further north. There's actually a community in the very north of Saskatchewan near the border. It's called uranium city and they're obviously used to be a uranium mined there but it's it's since closed down Josh and so very few people actually live in uranium city anymore but it's located on the shores of Lake Athabasca and there is some incredible fishing at Lake Athabasca and this is actually there are the ATHABASCA sand dunes and that is still on my bucket list of places. I need to get in statuary. Go experience the sand dunes and so the ATHABASCA sand dunes are the most northerly at sand dunes in the world there right you're in Saskatchewan and and they are active so their ever changing and moving and shifting as well and there's lots of endemic species and flint plant species up there as well so it's definitely high on my list of somewhere. I'd like to get excellent. We'll just for some scope in terms of how big a place candidate is so we just barely got into northern Saskatchewan. You talked about the ATHABASCA sand dunes which are way up there in the north and then we're only halfway up the country still territory yeah. It's such a huge country excellent everything else we want to talk about in terms of itinerary before we get to some of our wrap up questions I think was sketch being being prepared for those longer drives but then also being prepared to take the time to stop on the way so I mentioned the main destinations that we were heading to but there's lots of little places you might WANNA consider stopping off for there's provincial in regional parks and actually some of those smaller parks are lesser known parks. Although I mentioned the national one they're just as wonderful to visit to so being open to chatting with the locals and finding out what you can see in do in the area area and so I find my trick when I travel in Saskatchewan is to stop in fine coffee row or stop in at the local coffee shop or grocery store and say hey what's going on here. What's there to check out and people are so passionate about sharing that information in there so excited that you're in their community and you're curious about it that you probably spend all afternoon chatting with people so being open to not just focused on the itinerary but saying hey what other experiences and adventures can we have a long way excellent some questions you're standing in the prettiest spot in Saskatchewan weary of standing? What are you looking at so you're standing in southern Saskatchewan and you're standing in the Cypress hills reached in and so it's actually one of the highest areas in Canada east of the Rocky Mountains it ranges whether you're in the Alberta Saskatchewan side from thirteen hundred seventy two meters above sea level and we have this is joking Saskatchewan that were so flat 'cause there are flat areas but we're so flat that you can watch your dog run away for seven days and yeah so I joke about it and I think it's funny in there are flat areas but there are Rolling Hills IOS and no we don't have mountains but we do have amazing viewpoints to encourage people to find those locations in Cypress Hills as one of them and so you can stand there at fourteen hundred meters above sea level and you get to see the Vista in front of you? We have amazing skies as recalled the land of living skies. The sunsets here are absolutely incredible because you get to see so much of that space and so to be standing there with that view it puts you in life in the country in the province into perspective perspective and thinking about how fortunate we are to have access to the nature that we do in Saskatchewan excellent one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Saskatchewan okay so it's just catching we have some interesting terminology see for some clothing items and to jump into my mind so men's underwear. Would you refer to men's underwear as so interest catching you might call them. Get or gotch watch okay. Yes those quirky one and then pullover sweater with a hood. We actually call it a bunny hug. Most people call it a Hoodie. Yeah we call it a bunny hug all right a little bit quirky that yeah that's sketchy on excellent. Our guest again has been Ashland George from the lost girl's guide DOT COM and Ashland. We wanted to send people to your best post on schedule on where we send them. I actually have a post is a collaboration from a variety of different photographers around Saskatchewan and I had them submit some of their favourite northern lights photos from around the province.

"My goodness northern pike is probably will end up getting but you can get big monsters like I myself have caught it was about twenty five pounds forty six inch northern pike and for reference. I'm about five foot four which is about sixty five inches tall in this fish was about forty five inches long so it was almost as long as I am tall. You won't get that in Prince Albert National Park. You'll get that further north but on this road trip you'll be heading up further North Sea might actually be able to get when they're but lots of Walleye perch really we have pretty much any fish you could want in terms of Canadian species insys catch win. It's it's pretty amazing. I remember my father catching a northern pike one time when we were probably somewhere up in northern U._S. and with not only with a fish biting but the fish were biting he got bit by a northern Pike has they will give if you'll fight they will sometimes they'll be super. Chill the big fish. I caught he lumbered up to the surface of the water and then sometimes you really got to watch your fishing line. 'cause they'll snap it right off and then and then you get the typical stories of Vo is this big. This is got away on me interesting but yeah everybody loves to catch Walleye here. It's also known as pickerel and that's actually also the provincial fish of Saskatchewan too and it does like deeper waters but you can find it through a bunch of different lakes in Saskatchewan and then one other little thing I love to share with people a boat Prince Albert National Park because for me I actually I was travelling in Borneo and was excited to see this plant and then came home and discovered that not only do we have it in Saskatchewan but it does grow across Canada but there's a trail called the boundary bog trail and have you ever heard of pitcher plants so they're really cool. They are a carnivorous plants so in principle national park on the boundary <unk> bug trail you can find pitcher plants and so they're shaped to kind of look like a pitcher that you would drink maybe lemonade out of but they catch water and have a cavity with digestive liquid in it and then they trap different bugs that they then consume so their carnivorous plants and they they live in boggy areas in Canada and you can walk along the boardwalk on the boundary bog trail and see some of these pitcher plants which I think is is super cool I clearly I love outdoors in nature and I'm actually a biology teacher by trade so these are some of my favorite things to share with people excellent. The seem to me to be a tropical plant so I am surprised that this is the you'd find Saskatchewan totally and they're just they're found in boggy areas. There's actually another provincial park that you can find them in in Saskatchewan and then you can also find them out in Atlantic Canada and Newfoundland as well and you say you found them on the bog auto trail the boundary trae hundred trail okay. That sounds like something. I'm GonNa need really good boots for galoshes or what is the boundary bog trail pretty great hiking in the park. It's not too long. It's about a two kilometers loop and they have I built up a boardwalk over the boggy areas. You'll either be on boardwalk or you'll just be in the trees where it is a better trail so you don't have to worry about having rubber boots or anything like that. If you just have shoes hikers you'll be good. Read all set on the trail but it's beautiful and in the oftentimes they have lots of Tamarack trees as well and the Golden Larch that turned yellow and so yeah it's great to hike in any season you have so you were in all season traveller in Saskatchewan. Do you have a favorite season. Winter is my new thing interesting okay. Yes I spent quite a few inches away. When I was traveling? It was easier for me to travel throughout the winter months and come home and work in the summertime. I had a seasonal summer job and now that I've been back for a couple years and spending more time in winter I am delighted by the number of outdoor activities that you can do in actually in Prince Albert National Park a girlfriend and I went up to the park and it was probably early April and we built a quincy so I'm not sure. Are you familiar with what is familiar with the Quincy. It's not an Igloo but it has a similar <unk> structured shape to it and what you do to build a quincy is you take a couple of shovels and you shovel all of the snow out of an area onto the sides and then as soon as you finish that you turn around you shovel all that snow back into of the pile that you just pulled it out of and you.

"All the other people in bigger and bigger bigger. I listed a few of the people that went on to win or play at the international stage but for other curlers within bigger like there's a lot that could be up there but just just she's got that I q and She's got that understanding and I don't think we've seen someone like that at that demographic that kind of touches on all demographics in a weird way. If you guys understand what I mean she's making the Sport Fund Oregon. I'm curious about bigger. So what do you think it is about bigger that it's able to keep generating elite curlers but what is it about the club the community because you see some time two times a lot of little hotbeds around Canada but also you know hibbing and Bemidji Minnesota classic hot beds that have Kinda turned out a lot of the top curlers. So what do you think it is about that club in particular. That's that's so many greats coming out of bigger Sandra's murder Weiss Andrus Merlin. There's there had to be something something there like in any sport. Even if there's like a great athlete coming from that spot there's a whole bunch of other things often going on behind the scenes to make aches at that elite athlete possible right so what what about the club made made it possible for Senator smirl or two. I think Sandra smaller I I think that you have a lot of elite curling especially back back in the day before my time of people going through curling and perfecting the club yeah yeah level so much so that it only took a few people to break out and go to the provincial or go to the SCOTTIES and win scotties ladies and a lot of this is locked but then there's the trickle down effect like as weird as it sounds. I'll throw this to a hockey lucky standpoint. Cole Harbour Nova Scotia with Sidney crosby Nathan a few years later Nathan MacKinnon comes up yeah right. Can you guys do you guys understand ave yeah. I I just I just ate I ate. I ate but yeah it's it's just it's that kind of. I don't want to say chosen one chosen. What in a weird way like when you go. Oh through there's always there's curling legends and all these small towns but own now. I'M GONNA do it without even but yeah I think there's small town curling legends everywhere it took it took Schmor- to go through and all these things to Kinda get that spotlight on bigger and just keep them pushing so what happens if they're they're not able to completely reverse these trends of the number of competitive number of wreck curlers declining their sketch when if if the bigger her club were to ever close what's the future of curling look like in Saskatchewan. Maybe even you know across the prairies and across Canada so I I I've talked to a lot of people with this thought a lot about this and I think the one big census that I've Kinda came from a lot of people is that the small town curling clubs here in a close and it's going to be pushed into the bigger cities so that Saskatoon North Battlefield Moose jaw swift current Regina but at the same time there's there's there's another thing that that Americans do as well. You guys and it's super weird. I think it's odd awed. I don't think I'd be able to jump on board but you might have to the way things are going. That's curling on hockey ice and that's not traveled and it it would just yeah we we put layers of pebble down. It's just not nearly as many as you'll find at the road passes before we have to before before we start you You're not sending out the figure skaters after that one game is the problem. Is We curl after the figure skaters we have to deal with. We have to deal with the massive. Cut The toe picks in the ice. Yeah the deep cuts and you're just like throw it off to the side a little bit. It'll get a little bit of a bounce from that one basically I I what yeah I I think that's the way it's going. I talked to Dr Robin later on in the season and she said that in a couple of weeks she was going to one of these these funds bills long ice. She was just. I don't think I've ever done it before but figure it outright also the way another issue that I kind of came across was. It's a foursome right for teams. If you have four players you're trying to figure out like four different schedules so it's almost impossible in any way shape or form to get four people out unless you're in my standpoint at a university student. I used to be one. I was one for way too along but yeah it's when you get families. Everything changes and one thing that they're trying to do to combat that is is start to push mixed. Doubles and mixed doubles may be the resurgence in the game that we've been looking for then. You're only focusing on two people. It's a lot quicker. It's a lot faster it checks off every box that you may have in why you don't like curling and mixed doubles it could be the future of so did going back to arena curling and then we'll go nimal look at mixed doubles but going back as would as we refer to it in in the US arena curling. What's the reaction going to be there. I mean are you going to see. Are you going to lose the older. curlers pursue who thumbed their nose at curling hockey ice in or would it be is it. Are they going to be able to gain enough first-generation curlers to who don't no any better to make up for it because I know here in the states a lot of the arena clubs. One of the problems they run into is the ex pats who are in those population centers were just will not curl on hockey ice and some clubs basically they. They win all in on building a dedicated Kissimmee just because it was the only way we're going to get any ex-pat so what's going to happen if you're if you suddenly have a lot more arena curling there in Saskatchewan in Canada I think for the most part people embrace it. I mean it's it would definitely be weird. It would be like playing street hockey rather than real hockey and.
