"To friends and heroes about inspirations finding your center and what each one of us can do to make the changes we want to see in the world you can subscribe to Sun Storm. Wherever you get your podcasts. This is a CBC podcast. Barton I think you mean Primetime Star Rosemary Barton and I'm Alanine up-to-minute. Party line Rosie. We've just seen a lot unfolded over the last twenty four hours. We got a throne speech that resets the governor's agenda as we get deeper into this pandemic. Hurt some very intense responses from the opposition, and then we got a whole separate address to the nation from the prime minister himself. These guys have addresses don't happen all the time the happen in moments national crisis. You could argue we might be in one. This was a way for the government to turn up the urgency around what appears to be a second wave of the pandemic and to try to get zone messaging through around the throne. Speech. And how the government wants to, as they say Phil back better is there any chance the government could fall? A lot of questions to get through. So as we record this, I am still over at West loch not not that work have more to do after this. My T, my TV set is still the only one that is up. But if you hear things in the background, it's it's The fabulous tuck is starting to pull some stuff down. So we don't have to be till eleven o'clock the reason I'm over here of course is because we heard from the prime minister and opposition leaders speaking to. The Nation that happened at six thirty eastern and it was highly unusual for the prime minister to a ask for this time for the from the broadcasters and yet the time and highly unusual for it to happen after almost our long throne speech where the government had lots of room to lay out its agenda is concerns around the pandemic so. You know I don't know did did did he need all that time did? We seen enough and heard enough of the government. CanNot. Just tell you off the top first of all you know where you are. They love thrown speeches and I get it. But like man I'm not sure that I love doing speeches because audience speeches. Yeah. Like the audience is like usually media folks and bureaucrats and maybe sometimes other politicians but like it doesn't feel human like he doesn't feel like it's People like if you actually wanted to engage people, you wouldn't just have a person sit on a chair a big chair by you just read six thousand words and these things are really broad and kind of general gestures towards notions. The might become ideas that might become plans and and and I, and I understand all that and this was chock-full emotions and ideas. National. Childcare. was speeding up working on Pharma care. They said they're. They're going to pursue some kind of long term care standards that are national. They're going to create a million jobs. They're going to buy the world a coke and teach it how to dance I. I. Appreciate all of that but he just like if felt like a really big to do and I'm not sure who it's trying to reach what my mom was watching because that's what she does. She just supports me in that way perhaps your. Listen I think you know an hour long speech is a hard thing for Canadians to have time for wrap their heads around. We are however in as we talked about so many times now an unprecedented time and at a according to the Prime Minister and Dr Teresa Tan that she felt compelled officer at a crossroads of the pandemic where things are about to get much worse if we don't change the way we're responding. So all of those things out for a moment in time where maybe Canadians for once know really did want to hear what the government has in store for them. Really did WANNA see how they plan to fix some of the That we've talked about even is so many times in the past some that you just talked about there. So maybe maybe this was actually the moment when these kinds of speeches become bigger and more important than just for the media and for the people that implement the policy but for sure you're not, GonNa. Get from a speech, all the details and all the dollar signs. That's GonNa come later but it does give you a sense of how the government's approaching things. I think. You know what was interesting for me with the speeches that they spent I know that throwing speeches are meant to be the sort of vague big picture thing. They had the option still to kind of get specific in it. And for about a month or so I thought the expectations for the speech were just through the roof and he was going to be the speech that would lay the foundation of the most ambitious government program in like a generation and I think that's what we got Trudeau Promise Nice things. There's this promise to expand every province testing capacity, which in the middle of the surge sounds like a good idea. There's a promise of action on systemic racism which I think we only way you could come out against that is if you say, I, don't know maybe racism is not that bad. But it's worth noting in general that. There was a lot of big government will continue like we just heard this phrase over and over and over again, the government will continue to have people's backs people the front lines who have been looking after seniors do vital work and the government will continue to have their backs. The government will continue to support Canadians. The government will continue to expand passively to deliver a virtual healthcare. The government will also continue to address the OPIOID epidemic. The government will continue its policy of putting a price on pollution. The government will continue to bring in new. The government will also continue to stand up for human rights and the rule of law the government will continue to fight for free trade government also continue to never give up or never let you down. Me Wrong? All the things of the world this year I get it colossal on, and it's a big deal and they're gonNa keep doing those things. You know it's a big deal to keep doing the employer wage subsidy I'm GonNA continue that till next year. But like we have to keep in mind that they prorogued parliament to say look, we need a minute to get ready for this really big throne speech. So given the lightness of details here I'm not sure that Canadians are going to think that. was necessarily justified. Well, okay that's a point. But sometimes when you are you figuring out what the future is going to be just throw things on the wall and see if it sticks and that might be what they've done with the big promise of childcare. It sounds like a significant amount of money. They say we'll come attempt to fix long-term care, which they will have to do obviously both of those things with the provinces and let's not forget also promise to create one million jobs, which is about the number of Canadians that need jobs right now. So I mean there are some big ideas there but you know it's Just like really tired of how you would know this. But sometimes when you're tired of how you look and then you just go and get bangs just. So I just give you like a fresh fall. Look I think that's a little bit what went on here. bangs the government later regret. I've never done that. So I don't understand the feeling even thinking I can't wait I can't really look perfect all the time. But curious to me that you say that because when they justified the probation, he was an early perturbation. and. It was in the middle of a bunch of really big stories like we still remember the we investigation because of bunch of committees we're looking into it. And all of that work got put aside because they pervert parliament. So it I think it had a high bar to live up to and absolutely those programs are big. But I guess depending on the level of details and we ended up getting. People might not feel that early irrigation was..

"Of the upper gladys and. It's a it's it's a virus where Where the EPA gladys sits in all of our throats and every time we talk or breather Yup Gladys raises up and allows air to get inside of your windpipe and essentially acute uncle. Titus is is where the virus attacks the gladys makes it so swollen and makes it so heavy that it just sits there on top of your windpipe and so essentially it was a misdiagnosis that that my father died because his body essentially suffocated itself. You you you think. He was sent away in part because he was a black man. Absolutely where where you know where the questions that were asked of my mother. When he was in the hospital was a was asking about. You know the assumption that he didn't have insurance asking him was he prone to exaggeration And they sent him away with with a diagnosis of of get some rest and if it gets worse than than than come back to the hospital it dig it worse and in fact hours. After he was released in the hospital he died as he as I was in fact I remember watching him as at the base of the stairs and I heard him coming down the stairs and I went to the stairs to go to go greet him and he collapsed and fell down the stairs right in front of me. You know I think about that moment. Now where Where we have so many people who again who are who are suffering and and we have so many heroic nurses and doctors and people who are trying as best as they can to support those who are sick and and I think about the case of of people who aren't even able to go spend these last moments with their ones I mean we're watching amazing Heroism and kindness. That's being shown throughout this country about the way we're dealing with intriguing and serving people but we're also watching these disparities show themselves in so many drastic ways and I saw with my own family. About how these singular shocks can knock a family down to the point that it then takes it then takes this you know Remarkable sense of influence in frankly a lot of luck to be able to help people navigate their way out of this and cannot have a framework or society where look has to be a prerequisite in order for people to make it. We can't and I keep thinking about how long lasting the impact of this is going to be on that front right when when the world is healthier again right and we all can't wait for that day. What do you guys think? The lasting impact of this increased disparity is is going to be and do we need to do about it. I mean the Taylor. This is going to be remarkably long and and one thing we always think about you know in in our organization is it's not just going to be about the emergency it's going to be about the aftermath because the aftermath of this is is is going to be absolutely staggering. The way they were GonNa Watch economies fundamentally change the way that even after we get an all clear and everyone is is permitted to go back to restaurants and permitted to go back back to their work. What exactly does that mean and look like particularly for so many people who barely had their head above water beforehand. You know one of the big pushes we've had for example We're talking about the importance of cash assistance in the work that we're doing Again when you look at the fact that nearly half of New Yorkers couldn't afford emerging spence a forty dollars before Kobe and even now we've we've we've passed. A bill passed a bill on the federal side. North of two two point two trillion dollars You know the the reason that we're focusing large bulk of our relief onto emergency cash assistance programs that can be managed by our community partners who are equipped to get cash into the hands of of New Yorkers who need it most is also because of the fact that for many people for many people who are in our population. They're not included in that. Let's end on this. Wesson is parents ourselves and I just think so. Many people are thinking that kids right. Now what have you seen in terms of the impact of this so far on children the most in need well? I mean you know. It's it's interesting because I think for you know I know in Europe parent. I'm a parent having having to adapt to you know what it means to have a remote learning and home schooling for your kids and the adaptation that's going to take on parents but also I know that I'm blessed. I know that that that you know that we have You know my my wife is so all in in helping our kids pulling everything together so that also I can continue You know Leading this organization and leading this work and leading this effort and I know that's a benefit that a lot of families don't have I also know that for children who are in shelters right now and you think about it you know in in New York City alone alone and this was before the crisis about twenty three thousand children every night. We're spending the night in shelters. Having to go to school how to navigate despite the fact that they did not have a home and for eighty percent of kids who are growing up in shelters. They don't have access to Wifi or computers. So how are they doing remote work? How are they thinking about ways to keep up with with with their with their peers in there and their classmates and so as a as a large society you know it's both about how we propel we supporting our children right now our children but also it's about how preparing for the aftermath? Because we know that that that this thing is going to last a while and specifically for those who are already in complicated situations on that my two year old just woke up from his nap and he is crying. So I'M GONNA have to leave it. There GOPI mom the most important of our jobs and I just so appreciate what you do west Loch to you and the entire team over there. Bless you thank you so much for all you do wes. We're GONNA take a quick break when we come back Lauren Bush. Lauren will tell us about how she supporting her employees through this crisis. Just don't know if I'm ready to face the world own tracy. Morgan is back. You are. Low wraparound Agean. Tiffany haddish's back. We support one another. Everything is going to be. Okay the last.

And now Lauren Bush Lawrence. Ceo of feed projects tells us how her organization is supporting the UN world? Food Program is they're trying to prepare for more countries to be hit hard by this virus. Thank you Laurin. Thanks for doing this. Of course let's talk about what you do and who you serve. The reason. One of the big reasons I wanted to talk to. You is all of the vulnerable people right now. Who are made more vulnerable because of this crisis eleven million food insecure children in the US feed serves people around the world. You work with no kid hungry to do that. How exacerbated the crisis now because of this yeah I mean Dave Day I would say it's obviously quickly evolving but the fact that You know for New York City specifically but a lot of the country so many schools are closed especially public schools. Were many kids. Do rely on that free or subsidized for lunch. Breakfast to to eat and their families rely on that there are one hundred fourteen thousand homeless kids just in the New York City Public School System. Who all get their meals from the schools just in one city. Yeah so that is a big big deal I'm also on the board of the Food Bank for New York City Been in close touch with them and no kid. Hungry is the organization as well that feeds supported is supporting To HELP GIVE GRANTS TO FOOD BANKS TO COMMUNITY COMMUNITY CENTERS Information to families about where they can find those meals for kids In lieu of not being able to maybe provide them themselves. I mean again I with my family. We were lucky we went to the grocery store. We are able to load up on enough food for a week. Or at.

Do, that well I think for most of us will agree that the selection sometimes at many of, those stores, I mean, quite frankly they can only hold so much and they also sell a bunch of. Other stuff and so- fluorine is only part of what. They do and so are you always seen everything that's truly Available joining me on the phone line right now is. Andrew Eaton who's with lumber liquidators he's the vice president of the east division Andrew it's. Nice to speak with you once. Again, welcome to WGN radio morning thank you for letting me join you get on how smart you, got it, all right, tell my audience I think they probably know but lumber liquidators gimme a little snapshot of kind of the the history of the company and. And what it is you guys are doing now You bet well we actually got our start back in nineteen ninety by purchasing excess would that other companies More than we started reselling it or the back of a truck. A yard in Massachusetts We, opened, up our very first store was in nineteen ninety six now within west Loch theory Massachusetts or it all the way to today we have a four hundred and eight locations on, all across the country yet opened our four hundred and eight. Story yesterday in South Carolina and we are North America's largest retailer hardwood. Flooring into condo landlady we have twelve stores actually the eleventh four that we opened up the company was right, there in Arlington heights Oh nice nice and so the focus when you first started was really on, on on would right hardwood floors and and making that available. To you know the average homeowner and contractors I assume but your your. Business has really grown from there hasn't it Along with the odd foreman, and selection, that we have now there's a lot of. Different types of warring out there besides the crucial. Solid hardwood flooring and so. We, carry all of the different different types of products on everything from waterproof flooring to would. Look, tile. Vinyl. Laminate flooring even bamboo pointing a lot of different options out there we've really diversified portfolio customers come into our stores they had, a extremely, electric actually we carry over, four hundred, different varieties of floors in in all belated dial. Into mazing I've been around long. Enough and I'm a big, fan of, of hardware you know real. Traditional hardwood flooring, I like it. I think it's a great added. Value proposition you know there's all kinds of different species? Of wood that's out there and I personally think that there's nothing as nice. As a real hardwood floor but? The technology on how this stuff has been created now is just amazing and I can remember twenty plus years. Ago, when laminate flooring kinda hit the marketplace and it was the hottest thing and, everybody wanted. It and I was kind of you know a little bit against it I was like I don't know it just doesn't look the, same and, why would you want that the net technology. Change and now it seems like the hottest product. Out there that everybody's talking. About, are these luxury vinyl tile floors can you talk a little bit Andrew about those floors One of the big trend right now is. We call, it worry proof boring engineered vinyl plank is extremely popular the. Gorgeous it it's also very very affordable end your point earlier about his voice, it's fairly easy to install a lot of you have very easy quick lock. Applications and so it it's a good a good option for the do it yourself, many of these stores also carry a lifetime warranty on. Them so it really really, good durable, for that pretty much hold. Up to just, about anything you. Can throw up yeah and the. Thing with these luxury vinyl tiles is that there are? A little bit I think from a standpoint of walking on them in the. Way that they kind of present? Themselves once they're installed is a lot more substantial than The traditional laminate flooring which can people have complained depending, on the installation, and what they're going over the top. Of you know you can get a little popping or. Sound. Out of the floor these things to have a little bit more density to them, and a, little bit more conforming to the the sub floor underneath it which I think ultimately just makes for a better experience once they get installed Yeah absolutely do, and you know we always recommend personnel we like to we like to recommend our installation services, on Cutler, to make sure at the job is done properly the first time in negative stretch three possible but they're also your point about the the feel of the floor there are a lot of different options, out there are upgraded the underlying or had you can. Put down on right Yeah the Apor that they would only use it really give, you a much, better or right everyone has a budget. Right and when it comes to flooring, flooring is one of those things that if you're looking to transform a space it really can be a focal, point and everybody has a budget right I. Mean, I have. X. amount of, dollars to spend and. There are certain, products there are certain items that you're going to buy a home that is in my opinion you absolutely get what you pay for and while, I'm mindful of everyone's budget I think you would probably agree that. In the flooring industry when you when you. Spend a little bit more you do get a little bit better product Absolutely and you know as we just got a lot, of people come, in and they're looking for those worry. Proof off hinders manufactured for when it, really the fact of the matter is an absolutely stunning floor nothing solid hardwood and it or analogy goes the, way they presented or during the process there Even at bellawood hardwood flooring lumber liquidators it carries one hundred A hundred, year, transferable. Warranty on the top Very very durable but. Nothing, look quite like real. Valid her order yeah I do, like. It. It is my still. My favorite Andrew Eaton he's with lumber. Liquidators he's vice president of the east division if you're looking for a new floor and, you want. To see a really? Nice selection they have what did you say twelve stores.
