#OuNewNormal | LP Penner of Winnipeg, Manitoba

"Welcome everybody to another session of the our new normal series where I talk with friends from around the world of of their experienced during the covid nineteen. hopefully till watching can get some sort of connection may be through similarities that they learn about and also learn a few things about the different experiences of people are going through during these. Strange Strange Times. on that note I'm incredibly thankful for everybody. That's been able to join me. I have a lovely friend from back home. Who was willing to take my call today? And on that note? Could you introduce yourself everybody? Fair an LP header I use them pronouns such started getting used to that beano introduction. I live in Winnipeg Manitoba in I I work at a crisis line the. Public aspect of that is running the human trafficking line. So. That's most of my face with that I'm also in school for marriage and family therapy. Master's program. I wrote a blog call because it scares me. About might be linked on the most part. And random. Which I by the way recommend that everybody checks out because I think it's pretty cool when the algorithms allow me to see it when they tell me you know something's new on their. so okay, so he's at Winnipeg Manitoba Do? We I'm forgetting. Did we I? Mean I know I feel like we've cross pass a few times. Did we hang out and Winnipeg at all? Remember. When? I was GonNa say I think we cross paths and other parts of Canada, yeah but. Man I can't remember I think it's been like. I feel like it's been at least sixty years since I was there. So? I think I remember like someone going to you did, but I was working so I got your mercker. Okay, yeah, because I did like a few, Tofu things there over the years The magazine launched I. Don't think we knew each other. That was like. Two Thousand and seven or something. A long time ago. Yeah, no! We were you know we were? We were way younger back then. I mean well it was. It was a Mondragon for one thing so. That's a whole other thing Oh, actually already detours. Somebody told me that Boone burgers shutdown in Winnipeg. Yeah. No, my friends telling me this. I think it was kind of a slow fade. It, partially, because a bunch of other places opened up. And that offered more than just burgers, so I think it was like there is a roughage eatery which is pretty Rad across. Site that just Kinda took over. Damn. Well Yeah I think. It was on the Vegan Travel, facebook group and Someone was asking the question of like Oh if I was going to move the Canada, where should I go? Which of course led to like a million opinions And I was scrolling. Deceive anyone mentioned like something other than Vancouver. Toronto or Halifax and Simmons Gone Winnipeg. Link I love. Winnipeg can't wait to go back there like Bloomberg for life and they were like yeah, do. Stay like they opened a bunch of on -Tario and then shut them down and Winnipeg I was like. What Like a few weeks after they did it like closed, so who knows, there might be hope still. Maybe. Did the people like to? The owners moved on terrier or something? I don't know there isn't I. Don't have the inside scoop anymore. Oh okay. I was shocked. They haven't I surprised that no one mentioned it to me because. It's like my my go to. I mean with Mondragon closing. It was like that was the next one kind of in my list. But I also haven't been there for almost a decade so. Yeah. Like, I think like this one place circle kitchen opened up. That was really good. But like I called to do take away well. Kobe's happening in their number was out of service salon scared now. On. I'm. I'm definitely. I'm concerned overall like because obviously. Lot of businesses that aren't exactly like. Making you know piles and piles of money like they're not big franchise restaurants to like sort of. Deal with this kind of thing, but. On the other end I'm like well I don't have that much money to spend, and they don't like doing delivery because I mean I'm sure at home. Maybe it's a little different. There's like better packaging, but here it's like everything's just GonNa. Show up and plastic and Styrofoam. and. So my partner and I are like new. Not such a great thing, so we just ended up eating at home, but I'm like paying hope lake. The little noodle shop down the street stays open like. Okay? so I guess on that note we'll get into. I mean I think the biggest change obviously is Bloomberg closing, but I'm sure you have other answers more related to this station 'cause you I. Mean you've been in Winnipeg like most of your life whatever see like? You totally are aware of some of the changes that have happened in the last fall like what's what's been having their wind, and it kind of seemed like start. I think like. Not Times, a weird thing now, too, but. Probably like mid March things started to like. Even people being more cautious and going to the grocery store. There wasn't like signing up or anything, but there is no toilet paper. Some panic buying. but yeah than they did like they call done emergency state of emergency. I think in early April may be late, aren't. So than most things shut down. Certain just like kind of the basics now like grocery stores. Yeah and like a lot of places you can pick up food or skip. The dishes is doing really well now, but the. Rain. For like small restaurants at least but. so, but it's still a state of emergency there now. Yeah they extended it for thirty days. They're talking about like. Schedule starting to open up. Offices and stuff like that, too so this can see how the scheduling goes on copy bash. Yeah So I didn't realize that the dental office. I mean I don't know what the rule is. Here I kind of assumed that they were like open in some way. Like I mean people could have like. I think emergency. Otherwise, yeah, like all cleanings and everything were canceled. Yeah! A lot of breathing. Yeah Yeah I mean I'd say that was part of it because I was like I. Mean I'm for cleaning or whatever, but then it was like. I don't really that's not an environment I want to go to like someone right here and you know I. Mean it's usually awkward to begin with, but. Now I'm like Even more of a thing It's so I mean how. In terms of these changes during houses like. Changed Your Life. What's your daily routine like now? It's weird like it's like I live downtown so almost louder now because I think they're just trying to disperse people without homes, and so they're. Wandering more or like there's room in the shelters. Like that so I'm actually like I usually like to run outside, but everyone's outside. Now it's spring. It's exciting also. When hedge warming up? And so it's a weird mix of no-one being far enough apart, but also everyone being very vigilant. Feels like so like I'm going to work most days still. and. Try to sit very far apart. All. That and I'm involved in many phone meetings. Which is the worst? By Zoom and I don't like that. Yeah I still haven't still haven't used zoom. I've been trying to like avoided. have been doing a lot of this but I. Just I'm okay with like thrilled to security features of skype. Bursting what I've been hearing about zooming I'm like Rochman getting into. Now a little. Although I, did like A friend of mine sent me a link, but how like? You could. Kinda like schedule, Allama, or like a goat or sheep to show up for your zoom meeting. It's like a fundraiser for a sanctuary, and it's such a great idea. Yeah, it's it's like I. Think maybe it's a bit of a sliding scale depending on the company and stuff, but I think they're charging about like a hundred us house and it's mainly aiming for corporate stuff and everything to kind of just break up the large meeting, and so I, guess they just like go around the firm sanctuary, whatever with like a Webcam. And follow the Llama. Can just be like. Oh, hey, dave, could you bring up those slides for whatever the weekly reports or something in the law militia? is like doing Lama things. yeah and I guess they've. They've managed to raise like thousands of dollars which. I think is cool and I. I shared to a friend of mine who knows like some people with elephants sanctuaries in Thailand? She lives in Thailand. 'cause they've been just like hit really hard 'cause. Tourism in Thailand is just like bottomed out completely. And a lot of those places. That's what they depend on. So I was just like. Hey, you know like. Maybe these places could do that. Because, if you get an elephant like hanging out using meeting. Think. Be Pretty Cool. Yeah I! Don't know I don't know of anybody. Else's adopted it but I was pretty excited when I saw the lawman. Thing was guess way to think about. You know interesting twists. So i. mean in terms of work like. Are there any requirements like masks or anything like just wash your hands a lot or like? Wash your hands a lot. We have screened when we get there like it's healthcare protocols, even though I work over the phone. But Salt Lake I work for the PIG regional health authority, or that's one of our big funders so. That's Edwards is or pause. And so. We have to do watching an answering screening questions so i. know the symptoms of coping very well now. And then get your temperature act. If you have any sense, you stay home. So I I think I mentioned to you that like at a sore throat, and it was so mild, but it was like I can't go into work. And I got I qualified for testing. and. Health care provider and got the results in three days. Feeling very grateful for that. That's three days of not leaving. The House was. Theory restless feeling helpless grown Yo Yo. So okay, but you. I mean forget in Winnipeg like. Are they allowing I mean it just like a suggestion that you stay home or like? At thinking might be the occupational safety of my job that was required area. Yeah. They are they are? It's scary a bit like please state style of. If you're seeing too close together with people you don't let with, you might get ticketed. I don't think there's been any tickets yet. Except for a party in La Pau in northern Manitoba, but. Yeah it's. A bit like people are trying to. We've There have definitely been tickets here. I mean I was GonNa say in Saigon, but I'm not even inside going I'm in. In Hanoi like the capital, which is in the North I've read a few stories of tickets. And some drunken people getting in fights with police king told me to wear a mask. Just you know. That sort of thing And, I think if you look foreigners have been kind of track down because they were seeing like on a scooter with a mask and They also at least the video i. think in Talian Guy. somebody recorded it, and then reported them to police like knew where they went to the hotel, or the guy was like flipping them off and everything like while he was on the bike news like yeah, like culinary a mask like to. Like. You know it's. It's pretty much the rule here. It's also pretty standard anyway like especially on a bike. I, mean you know you're? You're visiting the country. It's like it's not just the law. It's also like kind of a cultural thing in general. And to go to that extreme, it'd be like flipping off people and everything. It's the Keno what's going to come back on. You man like. They know where you're living. In New York on the. Town when it's we. Masks aren't required here and like so I'm and like they're sold out everywhere so even like I. Don't think they could require them because they can't supply them. and made if ever mask, but I feel like half the time out with that I'm like. Is this stupid? My being dramatic or And then the other half is like no I, working still a risk for others I want to protect others. Yeah I mean that's at least for me. That's like the angle. I'd commander with No. I think the general idea is that for you? It's not necessarily GONNA. Totally protect you But understanding was that for other people. If you are sick, and you might not know or you know just have mild symptoms if you are a safe in at least like limits. FORBID OF! The spread like for me, it hasn't been. It wasn't a big change. Because the air pollution here who was relatively bad, so like whenever I went out to go to the market, or whatever because I got up like he'd be walking on the street and there's just like scooters everywhere and. You know they're exhausted kind of angled perfectly to be like oh your face. So if I didn't wear one like in the before times I'd still end up if I was owed either bid. And, it was like sort of a sore throat and a stuffy nose and So I just got tired of that stuff, and I mean sarin wearing them. I mean I like a lot of guys are shaving their beards. So that they can wear the mask better. Like all you can wear it with a beard. Yeah I'm. I'm I'm not going to that length and having. Shaved the beard yet, but yeah I mean well. My Dad like he used to work. like he worked in the oil industry in you worked at him. I never remember if it was son. Course in crude one of them in the tar sands and El Berta and then like back new from ninety worked in like an oil refinery, and then on the hibernia platform. Like they. Maybe not. Bernie a but. In other points depending on like. What job he was doing like he would have to shave because they would be wearing the full gear. Right like dealing with like. Noxious gases or maybe things that you couldn't smell and everything, so he had to have the proper seal. Yeah I mean like in theory me going out with my mask like wearing. This is not like if it was a deadly airborne thing, I would be risking stuff, but. With. Everything like. My mind thinks that. I'm doing better, so it's okay yeah. But I, mean Yeah General I've just been kind of like limited going outside, but now. They lifted the restriction sort of in Vietnam because Like coachman city hasn't had a case since early April. I think we had like two in the last like week and a half or so And if I'm not mistaken, those two people that like recently flew in from summer like there were returning home like Vietnamese. So they started lifting restrictions, and like here at like yesterday I was at a restaurant and is just. I feel like I'm in a different world 'cause. It's been awhile. I mean you've seen. There is hand sanitizer at the entrance unlike we had to do that. And but the minute I took my mask off in public like sat down. With people around I was like that feels so weird. How like? Why why! So strange and even now like. My partner left for here like in the end of Merch. So I hadn't seen her until what it was like two days ago, and it was just me and the apartment in ocean city. So now I'm here with like eight or nine other people in this house. Yeah. Yeah, so I'm just Kinda like only. Like we're sitting like eating meals at the table and everything in America. People people everywhere. So? It's interesting, but swimming. You've at least kind of having that like you've been going outside. Then touching people, and all that may choose to see my partner even though we don't live together and like there's a lot of guilt around that but I know one person's alright. But like I think of even like I do. My laundry at my parents plays because I live in an apartment building and I don't trust the laundry here. Unlike can't go there. I haven't seen my folks and like two or three months now so owns like the just normal habits are window. Hope is isolated like we're very lucky like we have low caseload. Like had time to plan and everything but. It does feel safer, but. You Do you know anything regards like what the state is now like the northern communities and everything like I haven't heard a lot. And I. Think. I don't think there's any case they've been really party like in. That could be different by the time that that I'm recording this right. As like they've been not letting anyone come in. Get shipped to Winnipeg kind of thing so 'cause I know like I think the Yukon and. Northwest Territories had like a case or to at least like in the last twelve, but i. don't think I'm blanking on it. None of it is it, is it? Is that the other territory. Oh sorry. No, it was the net in the Nazi government I the last agency I worked with. We did a website. Like, a self governed body in Labrador. So like no, that was none of it that we but yet none of those territory I'm so. There's your geography lesson people. Canada has three territories now and. ten provinces am I going get that wrong. It's ten. I haven't been home in a few years. That's my excuse. Geography where you're at two. I should probably know more everyone I've talked to Australia for some reason. That's the one that doesn't lock into my mind like I have friends in the people. Oh, well, I'm in Melbourne. Which is this Austrailia? And after the conversation I'm just like due to do so in my head like Australia's this giant island and I know who, like three or four cities and stuff, but. I can never remember like which one is wear and. A bunch of friends from there and I'm like. Tell me again where you are and. In their head. They're probably like to. You've asked me like ten times. Just won't stick I. Don't know why. From Winnipeg. You probably have a lot of people who have no idea where that is, too. So Oh, yeah! I'M GONNA explain Winnipeg a bunch and I mean if if they do know at least in candidate, and they're generally just like what why would you go there? It's just cold and we have you ever they're like. Have you been there before and they're like no. Link okay. That's like nothing about the hardest things lately like we can't go hiking or like us parks or anything, and like it's starting to be good camping, weather and I get. There's talks of that reopening soon. Like this and seniors possible could. We have a lot of space I was going to say. You can see people coming like. Twenty minutes away. You can be like all right. Yeah, that's the prayer. He's I'm just going to go over here now and we're good I'll see you in ten minutes. Fine. Yeah is there have there been any talks with the folk festival yet in terms of like? Canceled really already. I mean I guess it's not that far. Yes, so it's. Too Far Away. So much planning to do it that yeah. Yeah. I mean I know like well. That was that was probably one of the big things for me when it first. Hit because obviously they can. We both know like just being independent music scene I mean there's so many people that you spend your winter planning for getting out on the road and summer and all that stuff and they. Have this. Kick in in like merger, so you're like Oh. Cool! Well I guess I'll release my new album online. Yeah, so my, too. I think it's like bigger. Musicians are now doing online things, so the competitions even bigger like. You could go. Like Frank Turner once a week or some local musician. It's going to be. I mean I because I've been over here I. Haven't really been able to go to much of anything, 'cause. I mean I. Feel like there's probably a live music scene here, but. Haven't really connected with people who know about it I mean when I was in south. Korea I just happened to discover like this. Like Korean rockabilly band like with like the Elvis hairdos in the style and everything there were freaking amazing, and I like purposely would go into soul to see them like probably at least four or five times before I left the country and they did like great shows they'd rent like halls and have like a few other bands in. Bands from Japan or whatever, and that similar vein I'm. I think they had. A God! Who Was it? This American band that had played like a pretty big hit or two of like that sort of rockabilly like. Rock from like the eighties or something, so we saw them like playing this. I mean was maybe like a two hundred four hundred capacity like SORTA. Space in Seoul So. Yeah, but so like. I haven't I haven't gone to a lot of shows Because of where I am put I'm just I'm curious to see how long that's GonNa, take before. Like the majority of people like yeah, cool going just bump shoulders with like three hundred people. Dark Room like I can't wait. Yes You. To do they're like almost every day and I mean with school and work and everything I haven't really gone shows lately at all anyway, but. As soon as something's not allowed, it's like I wanted so bad. This is what I've joked with other people. Vote on like you know so many of us. That sorta alike complaining this I. Mean I get there. It's kind of like that right when you're told no suddenly. You're very aware of like wanting to be able to do it, but I mean so many of us have spent. Time at home anyway lake. Everyone's like Oh, I really want to see my friends and everything but. On the other side thanks to Netflix's and all that stuff of reflect off. From seeing friends anyway. And we were like. Oh, no I I I just don't feel like tonight. And then you're like binging game of thrones for six hours, and now everyone's like Oh my God. If I could go out, I'd see my friends every day like all the time I'm like. I, don't know. but I mean it is definitely bike. After a while. You're like Oh shit! Like a good friend of mine had a baby in the middle of all this, so the baby's just over a month of now and I haven't met her. Just like Oh like she was a roommate for years and Oh yeah. It's weird things like that. It's like Oh I. WanNa protect that eighty. Genuine saw. Spoke to someone who saying that like. yeah, one of their family members that a kid and so their mom was just like. I WANNA. Go See kid. But yeah, I mean my grandparents on my mom's side had like their sixty fifth wedding anniversary I think. And like Newfoundland isn't messing around anymore. Like I think it took a while. But. Now they're numbers kind of spiked, and so I think now that will go shit so like my family is. Doing the social distancing thing, so they basically just like drove down to my grandparents driveway, just kind of like wave to them. And stuff and has like when you hear that stuff. You're like Oh shit. Yeah, things are weird now. Strange so how? Are you. How are you handling it like what's your? What's your thing daily to be like all right? I gotta get up. Go do the stock. Get helps that I work in the morning. So like I. Get ready quite quickly, so I like wake up at seven twenty in at work for seven forty five so. Yeah, so that helps may not have time to think of doing nearby. Yeah, definitely comes in waves of bike. I like like painting. I like doing yoga like running and like I've started doing online therapy like for myself. Had therapy in that helps, but it's all like or I could lay here and. Feel the grief of it. All kinda thing some farming. Yeah, there's there's all that right like there's so many things that well actually. The the episode I posted super early this morning while my morning. Because Iran and issues last night, was my friend Sarah Louise. And Edmonton and we talked a bit of vote. That like How? It should be okay like this whole. This is your time the hustle and like rated great, novel and everything. It's like no fuck that if you're feeling miserable. Then it's cool. I mean there's crazy stuff happening like her story weird stuff happening. You know you're GonNa go through some stuff and then fine. Kids Activating People's trauma responses. That you've been through anything in this. Du Sometimes and I. Think most people have been through something. and. Then like talk with Sarah this, too I am. Not that I'm winning like the mental health profession, but like my my degree was psychology, and that was kind of. Sort of where I wanted to go. And you just I think give her like in terms of counseling and everything, and I mean maybe with your job to like there's no handbook for this like. You know and there's like so many sort of. Issues with mental health and everything that this can like trigger or just Kinda like encourage or whatever and like as a therapist or someone. Going through it, it's like. You're working towards like. Oh, the world isn't gonNA. End Like it's just your mind kind of feeding into these whatever it's a weird mixture of like some people. It's the hardest thing ever in some people. It's like yeah. I've been ready for this. This is what. Caught me to do. You have yeah weird. Make You Have you seen Melancholia? With. Kirsten dunst okay. So. I mean at least the way I took. It was an spoiler alert. is interesting I think she suffered from depression or a few other things and through most of the movie. Everyone's just like. Just snap out of it. Come on, let's go for jog or whatever and she's like. Oh! But then the twist is that the world's actually literally about to end yes. And she actually functions pretty well. Everyone else totally falls apart, and it was like Oh my God. What do we do and she's like well. This is how I feel like every day. At least that's what I took away from. It was like Oh. Shit like that's. It's an interesting example to try and show. People and I'm Kinda hopeful that like in terms of this In terms of like the community and everything people may be a little more aware of like because there are lots of people that because of their immune systems and everything like they have to go through the world. Every day with these sorts of concerns right? Like, not even just in terms, they may be like obsessive behaviors. But like in terms of their health, you know only yeah. Break and mentally or physically yeah, and some kind of hopeful that maybe some people be like Oh. Shit like my cousin. was always saying they wear gloves or whatever? They're always concerned with this night I'm like. Yeah now you maybe understand. Yeah, it is and. I. Don't know I mean. Yeah, we'll. We'll see right like people do tend to forget quickly when they want to And I mean at least like sort of these shifts like online learning and stuff hopefully. Could. Better access, for people maybe. When I think like how many jobs that are able to do online now and like? How much am I don't even I didn't think I could do online. It's I. Don't like it as much like just having the workspace. Is Huge in having home I want to do other things when I'm at home, not worse. Yes. You, have you? Have you done working from home in any other positions her? New. League my organization has outgrown our building so Some of my hours were already from home, but I wasn't very at that, and so now it's like Oh, I gotta get better. You know. 'cause doing reading about human trafficking alone in your apartment versus in a building filled with counselors is a different thing. On your. There's A friend of mine I talk to actually in Australia. She was doing with. I, think her. Her job in both like. I think it was more financial help. With people who had been in like. I maybe getting this wrong. It was a while ago. like sort of domestic abuse situations and sexual assault, and all that so because she has to Kinda like I don't know if she directly like approves. The claims assistance or whatever, but she basically has to go through the cases and read all this stuff. Yeah and she said so I think they have like some counseling and everything set up like kind. CHECK INS with everybody and everything but I think she's finding to. There's definitely a difference between like being in her office environment around other people. And being able to kind of step back and be like all right that was that was a tow freed. Let's shoot the shit for a minute or something now it's like she's at home and she only started like a month or two ago. So I. think that's also a little strange. But yeah, it was interesting because I. mean a Lotta. People are talk with. They're just like way I usually work from home so. Deal and I realized like. Adams inappropriate. Word, but versus like support can care. which is so much of what's going on lately as just like Ohio, much connection matters and even touch and smell. Yeah. Who, who you GonNa, Hug I when you can't I mean maybe if you've been seeing your partner of you're still able to WHO's next on the list. I think like my boss has been like I I didn't realize how many how. Meetings with hugs and their. Record, so it's probably actually going to be my boss. Mom. Are GonNA. Yeah I mean like where I am I mean here with my partner, says fine I've got. I don't wanNA sound like a total loner, but I've got a handful of friends in Saigon and stuff So I think probably just depends on. WHO ended up seeing I 'cause? Whoever I see, irs probably both going to be like Oh. My God come here's. site. What Oh. WOW COOL! But I mean I. Don't know how long that's going to be like. 'cause like I. said like yesterday going out to that restaurant. 'CAUSE LIKE This is like legal now, but. It still feels strange and like. I mean. You know my partner's son is here and so like I've been around him a bunch of times. But now in my head, because of self isolating for so long I'm like. I'm sharing food and stuff with all these other people and I don't know like. What? You know who they've been around or anything like that and it's like so. You know within should being just me like I have more control. Of the whole like exposure thing but. Like at some point, we're all going to have to or most of us are gonNA try and. Shut that switch off and go back to. Know Louis. They think of eating. Vegan in when me like fake meat taste to real. And like it's like this is delicious. Put It is wrong and like to eat at. States wrong, but I guess it's good. Can. I A third. They do amazing things here with like the the meat alternatives, but I am. A friend of mine, she came to visit and we went to the grocery store. That just feels like all these different kinds of stuff and so she just bought all these different things to try, and there's some stuff like that I never thought. To have a Vegan version of that and she bought like you'll like Vegan ill. And I never had ill in the beginning like when I was eating meat, so and I never had an interest in having you. So when I tried this, my brain was just so like. Confused 'cause like I. Mean maybe this tastes like ill, but I never wanted to tasty anyway so grossed out by the fact that it was trying to be something that I didn't even want to eat. My brain, which is like no, it doesn't matter. This is just. You don't need an invitation of whatever this is supposed to be. Go back to the beef and the chicken and all that stuff and Brains are weird. Feel like it's GonNa. Be like a mix of like being around. People's GonNa feel great, but also. And like I don't know. Probably overwhelming social Yeah I definitely. Talked with a few people but the mental health. Thing of this is going to be like so long term. Very much so I would like. It would be interesting to talk with people. I mean I feel like part of why things have been going so well. Here is because like there's some pretty big tragedies here in Vietnam. That were not that long ago like it's still within. The cultural memory and everything, and so for a lot of people like this idea of sort of a looming threat and like having to. You know. Come together as a community and all that stuff is like okay. You know we did that before or like. I mean we haven't seen much panic. Buying here like there's sort of masks became like sort of a rare item may be February. In terms of food like. No. I've been able to go to the street markets like every day. Get pretty much in in fact, it's more so they've been like having to sell stuff for cheap. Because China was one of the main importers of a lot of Vietnamese products. And so I guess Steph like Dragon Fruit. Like isn't a big deal here locally, but it was a big expert China. So when that got kind of cut off. They were trying to come up with all these ways to use dragon fruit. They were making like dragon fruit. Bread was the thing, so it's kind of like a clash of the the in thing on instagram now but. Like putting the drag bread and I guess it was okay to me. It doesn't sound. I. Mean Dragon for dozen tastes like much, but I was like. I. Don't know if I want dragging my bread. I never have to try it 'cause. I didn't want votes. When I was like. We're so a Tofu a lot now which I get excited about like the weird mix of like all, but I wanted it. Like if that's what sold out on super happy. People were buying vegetables so like gay. Defeats defeats I. Don't know if anyone's ever sent you like the pitcher right of like. It's the end of the world in no one. Still No one wants to Vegan food and it'll be like empty shows around like the one section. I'll just be like Ha. Cool. Thanks, friend. Don't be that guy. Think the league in there used to making food out of. What we can get but oh yeah. Yeah but I'm wondering I. Mean I know I read an article that said here like in Asia there has been. I mean it's not like you know. They're not not beating down the doors for. Whatever the the fake news here, but like. Apparently there has been a bit of a shift and people have been saying it's partially because of like the covid nineteen scaring stuff. The people are picking up more plant based stuff I mean you know there's still? A long way to go in terms of the general population, but. It's interesting. I mean yeah. It'll be interesting to see if. It changes anything back home I. Feel like it was already like there has been a pretty. Decent little progression. But I wonder more people now are going to be like Maybe our animal agriculture industry is messed up and. Supporting it. Is. Yeah. Thanks. so on that note, in terms of maybe a little hope. Although it doesn't have to be, we can, we can be cynical. No need rainbows if you're not feeling it when when this is kind of like all over for like whatever? There's more freedom than what's going on right now. What do you think you're going to kind of keep in terms of lake? Maybe new habits sort of like views. One I'm really hoping to hold onto like the gratitude for social connection. Like really taken when like even live shows and how much? Matterson months months of not going to them might be enough to be like. And like even chatting with friends in like, let's go for a drink when this is all done so exciting. And to hold onto that to. Cancel funds less. You know hoping that I can hold onto the? Gratitude for connection yeah. 'cause I think definitely. Feel like in general it kind of drop, pretty weak and I'm saying this as someone who totally wasn't fault to like you just say Oh, I've got things to do and what things really means is just mess around on facebook for like six hours or Here and do nothing pro. Yeah, and you're like we'll meet up later and now there's that like Oh shit. For a while there was no later or today or anything it was just will not gonNa meet up. I think I. think that's a good one so what vote him. You know that the world in general. What he? What do you hope Might come out of it after this whole tragedies. and. Like, I have so many like different minds. Going right now like the Vegan mind is like to have just even that little bit more mindfulness of what we're eating. Knowing what foods sell out and how? Good you feel when you eat vegetables? Flowers how you spend money and like a therapist to me is. That space for grief and understanding of when someone's going through our time now connection in support that we can give each other. Lots lots of possibilities. I think so I mean yeah. I'm usually pretty cynical. I do think lots of folks are going to go back to. Crappy things and there'll be governments that maybe don't want to change some of the new rules and. That quickly changed some of the other ones like I, suspect student loan payment. Forgiveness is going to disappear. With. The healthcare system in Manitoba's was getting like defended defended and now and then it's like really accentuated how important it is I know. At least the government will get away with that as much maybe. Although you know, everyone's also going to be thinking their paychecks. Next, while so if someone starts pitching. I'm GonNa you know well. What was it the big? One and Ontario was the bucket beer. Thing I think was like. silly. Did you hear about that was? The, Doug, Ford is the guy now or is a rav for nixed the two of them up because they're kind of. Both not great. and WHO's dead. Yeah I think it was. I think rob. Ford was the Mayor of Toronto who? became famous for terrible reasons. I think doug is the one now who's the mayor of Ontario Mayor. CREAMIER OF ONTARIO! who actually apparently hasn't been doing too bad during this whole crisis. Apparently, he's been kind of stepping up a bit I mean he's still slashed a million different things and. Is, one of those politicians, but yeah. His one of his campaign. Slogans was like dollar beer. and. That's what he was promising people, and then of course when he got in, he was like Oh. Wait I can't really do that. But that was we got some support. The people were like all right I'll save money on beer. Let's put this guy in and showed up and he was. We don't need library, funding or arts or Whatever, we'll take the money from that and. Anyway so we'll see. You know. There could be good things and I mean at least definitely within your own community. You can be like you know what I'm issue. We are hugging war if that's cool. With you I would like to do. Not. Love. Yeah, for sure. Well great, thank you so much for giving me a window in Winnipeg I know I talked to one other friend. Is Good to get sort of an update version and sad to find notable boom burger. 'cause that friend did not tell me. Talking to that friend. Later about that Because! I think been burger have stated out of like the excitement in Winnipeg. It's weird to see you so disappointed the role again worry. The thing like I mean it's been. More like six eight years or something so in my mind like. You know. I was there when Mondragon closed and that sucked because they were like the first Vegan restaurant. I think I ever set foot in and. yeah, and like Boone. I remember the last time. I ate there, but it was a while ago and. Like, I can't think of many other like all Vegan spots that were there and Winnipeg like there were definitely a lot of options. Yeah, but you know they were like. Okay, we have a separate Vegan menu or like. There's these things that were great. In terms of the all Vegan restaurants in Boone was. One of the only ones I can remember so in my head like Winnipeg is still. That little. This is same as with Halifax. Whenever last time I left, I've gone back a couple. Times been like Oh shit how facts you're. You're growing with your Vegan options, but in my head there's still like a few key spots and outside of that. It's a struggle. Whereas now they've got like I. Think two or three Vegan restaurants like all Vegan and a whole bunch other options and I'm just like. No, if I move back their final update. My Yeah, my memory. You know okay so I go to Scrub Boone put Boone in the Mon Dragon category of. Sad, but you know. Okay! Why will have to update my list at some point? Visiting Winnipeg. And you can, you can show me the new places. Sounds like a plan. Awesome and all have to meet Edward Sister Pause and so. Followed the instagram account for a while now and. Yeah. Cool well, thank you so much and we will. We will cross paths again somewhere in the line. Yeah! Okay.

(EP: 153) April 2021 Real Estate Market Update - Winnipeg Housing and Condo Report

"I'm afraid of cut some bad news. The stories you've heard of houses selling by fifty six hundred thousand dollars above asking are all true. I'll give you the details. Plus the april winnipeg real market report. All coming up next. You're listening to the bone knows real estate podcast tips and advice for home buyers sellers and owners with award winning remax agent though kaufman. Welcome to episode one. Five three of winnipeg's real estate podcast. This is bowl. Coffman remarks performance realty. I'm the residential real estate agent Looking after buyers and sellers houses and condos here in winnipeg and today is we're in mid april and the numbers that i'm going to start quoting here are from april first so it's been a couple of weeks but a double check them this morning and what's happening in our market is is truly unique. We have less than half the normal number of listings available at any one time last year. For example on this time we're touching costa thirteen hundred houses for sale in winnipeg and this morning we have just over six hundred all the while. That's sales are actually up. So there's a buyer buyer activity happening. I think that's largely due to really really low interest rates but listing just aren't coming to market as as quickly and as often as much as they did in past years. Not of course is really heating up the market. So you've heard of houses selling for fifty sixty thousand dollars above asking. I've even had one of my listing score. One hundred thousand dollars above asking and the asking price was by no means unreasonable. That's just the way it is right now. eastern paul seeing Some really bizarre bidding wars houses Going for again. Over one hundred thousand dollars over asking. So i had an email from a client. The other day somebody who started looking in the fall then gave up and it's coming back into the market and his email basically said. Can we find a house right now and can you help us find a bargain or a good deal. I think was the word so my answer to him. My honest reply to him is the same. I'm gonna tell you. Is you have to decide whether you want a house right now over the bargain shop because those two are not going to happen at the same time right now. The market is just super heated. We can't find you a house we had a. I had a buyer looking at putting an offer in last week The listing was two hundred eighty thousand dollars and told told my buyer that in order to get this house. You're probably gonna have to offer three thirty. They chose to just leave it at three ten. They didn't want to go any higher than that and sure enough. Three thirty would have just taken it so there are no bargains to be had. There's been some nice houses hat so if you're looking looking at buying a house absolutely give me a call but just be prepared. You are going to be involved in bidding wars Another way to look at it. As i set up a search for somebody and in their search results there was forty houses and thirty seven of them were new listings. In other words they had not hit offers date yet three had gone past that date and is likely a reason for that and that is the house may be leaning a little bit or it may smell or there may be structural issues or whatever the case may be thirty seven hundred forty two hit the offers they get and in all likelihood are going to sell immediately so as i do every month. Let's take a look at what the market report says for april twenty twenty one so what we do is we look at how many houses are available And condos are available on april first and how many sold the previous month and then compared to other months and past years. So let's start with a look at the overall housing market as it appeared on april first this year available houses. This complete all price ranges on april. First we have six hundred fifteen houses for sale in winnipeg. That's up slightly from the previous month. Which was five seventy seven but check out last year last year. April first we had twelve hundred and forty-nine houses on the market so we have slightly less than half of the available homes this year at the same time. Let's look at what's happening for sales so for the month of march this year we sold nine hundred and twenty two confirmed sales of houses in winnipeg. Let's all prices at another one hundred and twenty four which are currently pending which means that they are just subject to some condition either by the bayreuth by the seller but those the vast majority of those will finalize which means a total sales in the month of march of two thousand and forty six houses. Sold a thousand forty six compared to six hundred and twenty last month and six hundred and seven during the same period last year. So we've got half as many houses for sale but about seventy five percent more sales so you can see what that does. You can imagine what that does to the market. So let's break that down into the different price ranges. let's start with houses under quarter million dollars. Entry level homes in winnipeg and on april first. we have one hundred and forty four of those available. That's up slightly from last month of thirty five. But compared to the last year april first last year we had three hundred and fourteen of these homes available on the market and again looking at sales for the month of march sold one hundred sixty one plus another thirty seven potential mix at one hundred ninety eight potential sales up from one twenty seven in february this year and up from one thirty five the same time period last year. What does that do inventory. Dais remember here. The lower the number at the heart of the market. So last uber. At seventy seven days a month ago we were at thirty two days and right. Now we're at twenty two days very very low indeed as big a difference as this we will see even more drastic change in the price range above this looking at the price range of two hundred and fifty thousand to five hundred thousand dollars and starting with available listings. Right now it will i. We have two hundred and seventy three which was up marginally from the to forty nine last month but again less than half of the six hundred that were available last year same time period and again listings are down but sales are way up. During the month of march. We sold five hundred eighty six houses in this price range. Plus another sixty two that were pending right now makes total potential sales of six hundred forty eight six forty eight compared to three hundred ninety six the previous month and three ninety seven last year same time period and you can see what that does to inventory levels. Last year we were at fifty seven days last month at twenty this month for the month of march we are at thirteen days of inventory. That is the lowest by far that i've ever seen what that really means. Is that if nobody listed their houses anymore. It would take only thirteen days to sell everything that's out there. Run completely out of available homes. Now this is a mathematical equation. It's not reality because there are some houses that that may not sell or some houses. Just don't sell but mathematically it could. It could also sell out in thirteen days. So let's start by taking a look at the overall condo market winnipeg starting with available units april first. We had four hundred sixty three condos. All price ranges available in winnipeg. That's up slightly from the four thirty one on march first but check against last year seemed time last year. We had six hundred fifteen so just like houses. Availability available. units is down not as much as it is in houses but it is down looking at condo sales over time way up during the month of march this year we sold one hundred and sixty units. With another fifty seven pending. That's a potential sale of two hundred seventeen units. That's up from the one eighty eight in february but check it against last year where we only sold eighty nine during the month of march so eighty nine last year. Two hundred and seventeen this year It would seem to me that buyers especially perhaps first time buyers are seeing condos as an option as an alternative to getting into the housing market into the homeownership market because houses are simply just going nuts right now especially in the lower price ranges. Let's start by taking a look at condos under a quarter million dollars april. First we have two hundred and fifty nine on the market and winnipeg. That's up slightly from two thirty to the previous month but it's way down from the three hundred forty two. We had for sale last year. April first and similar to houses. Sales are up. During the month of march we sold eighty seven condos in this price range with another thirty seven potentially sold makes it a total of one hundred and twenty four most likely sold hundred and twenty four compared to one hundred six during the month of february this year and last year the month of march last year we sold forty two in this price range so we've tripled the sales of condos and i for one believe that that's a result of house prices in these lower price ranges that just going out of reach for many of the first time homebuyers people are seeing that condo's do present a great alternative for getting into the real estate market. And now let's look at condos over a quarter million dollars and unlike houses i am not a segregating this into two fifty to five hundred thousand. I'm just saying any condo over a quarter million all the way up to the million dollar units currently available we have two hundred and four condos that are priced at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars or more. That's up just slightly from the one ninety nine from last month but it's still way down about twenty five percent down from the two hundred and seventy three units. We had for sale last year. Same time hand once again. Sales are way up condos over a quarter million dollars. We sold seventy three during the month of march with another twenty that are pending so ninety. Three potential sales up from eighty one the previous month and up from twenty-five last year in march twenty twenty so ninety three this year twenty five last year big difference and what that does to our inventory levels. You can see here last year. We were at three hundred and thirty nine days right. Now we're at sixty eight days for condos. I've been doing this for a long time. Condos that is incredibly fast so it's even a good time to list and sell condos right now. I do hope you've enjoyed this presentation and found it useful. I've also got a little announcement.

Again, that's June twenty ninth twenty nineteen in Gettysburg. Welcome to stuff you missed in history class, a production of heart radios. How stuff works? Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm Tracy v Wilson. And I'm Holly fry Holly, we've had kind of a run of nineteen nineteen episodes, recently know we did not plan that it just keeps happening. We had a collection of Centennial's slash coincidences. We have one more. I think this is the last, at least in terms of what I have on my plate, like this is the last nine hundred nineteen thing for a bit. I make no promises. I don't know. I'll find out halfway through a thing that it's really the nine hundred nineteen and they'll be like, well here we go. He said, we've gotten several listener requests for the center for the last few months as well including Adrian, Donna and Sheena. And this one is the Winnipeg general strike of nineteen nineteen it has some things in common with last month's episode on the Limerick Soviet. Some of the context is similar both things involves strikes, that basically shut down a whole city. But otherwise, these two events have a lot of differences, both in how they progressed and in their impact on their respective countries. So even though we just talked about a strike, they're very different stories in the wake of World War, One Canada was facing many of the same issues that have come up in our other recent nineteen nineteen episodes during the war, the cost of living had risen dramatically as much as seventy five percent in some parts of the country, wages had risen by more like ten to fifteen percent. So working people were facing huge financial difficulties most working people weren't making enough money to pay for food for their families. Let alone meeting there other base. Iq means on top of all that as the military was demobilized after the war. Soldiers and sailors were returning home, just as wartime industries were shutting down. This was happening in other parts of the world to an employment was a huge problem. And there wasn't a lot of transition support for these returning veterans when they were trying to re enter civilian life, often without being able to find a job as was happening in the United States. Canada was also in the middle of a red scare following the nineteen seventeen Russian revolution. It was a climate of suspicion in fear of Bolshevism and communism. These fears weren't just a reaction to the revolution, though they were also a response to changing patterns of immigration, these changes were happening in much of the country, but since today's episode is about events in Winnipeg Manitoba. We are going to focus on that part of it before the mid eighteen hundreds most Europeans in Manitoba were French, French Canadians became a minority in Manitoba and eighteen seventies in eighteen eighties as. Large numbers of people of British ancestry arrived from Britain as well as from other parts of Canada, particularly on -tario, which is the province next door. But in the one thousand nine hundred nineteen teams more and more people started emigrating to Canada and specifically to Manitoba from Russia and eastern Europe, the population of Winnipeg's soared to about one hundred ninety thousand people making it Canada's third largest city with a significant population of Slavic, and Jewish immigrants. These shifting demographics sparked a deep sense of racism, and resentment among Anglo Canadians, who feared these imigrants weren't assimilating into British Canadian society in, we're bringing Bolshevism and communism to Canada, with them, Slavic, and Jewish emigrants, definitely weren't the only people facing discrimination, and racism in Winnipeg in nineteen nineteen the region's first nations population had been forced onto reserves under a series of treaties and laws, including the Indian active eighteen seventy six. These were meant to eradicate first nations cultures and to force assimilation into European Canadian and particularly Anglo, Canadian society, these laws, did not apply to the may t-, who were people of both European and indigenous ancestry and Winnipeg had a significant. Msci population, many lived in the outer edge of southwest Winnipeg in the community known as rooster town, the origins of that particular name are not clear, but before nineteen nineteen many of Winnipeg's, MSCI population, worked delivering water door to door, but early that year construction was finished on an aqueduct that connected Winnipeg to show lake providing the city with a new supply of fresh water, but show lake was in honour snobby territory. So the completion of this aqueduct was delivering water to Winnipeg, but it was doing so by taking water from the Amish nubby specifically from the show lake forty reserve who were not really consulted or even considered during this process. This is something that has never been resolved. The aqueducts construction created, what was basically an artificial island so shoal lake forty is literally surrounded by Winnipeg's supply of fresh water, but has been under a boil order for its own water for more than twenty years. The aquit X completion also put much of Winnipeg's may population out of work, and there were few other industries open to them. All of this was underpinning, the Winnipeg general strike of nineteen nineteen although on its surface. The strike started out as a simple labor dispute during the nineteenth, many of Canada's industries were starting to unionize and union membership was growing dramatically, but this process was really inconsistent from one industry to another and even in different parts of the same industry by the end of World War, One workers in some industries had formed unions. But those unions were not recognized yet. Others had formed unions that were recognized and had negotiated contracts for their members. But hadn't been a successful as they had hoped for getting terms that they wanted the nature of the unions themselves, had also started to shift most of Canada's first unions were craft unions. And they were connected to one specific trade members of the Union's all did the same essential job. And the unions focus was on workplace issues that we're very specific to its members and their craft. But by the late nineteen teams a lot of industries were shifting over to an industrial union model where for example, everyone who works for the railroad was part of a railroad workers union, regardless of exactly what type of work, they were doing for the road as a general trend industrial unions were more focused on politics than craft unions were both types of unions, might vote to strike over things like pay or working conditions but industrial unions also tried to get members or sympathetic people into the government to change the laws that affected their workplaces and industries during the first World War, most Canadians. Had considered it unpatriotic for workers to go on strike, and then in the later, part of the war, an order in council prohibited workers from striking once the war was over, though. And that ordering council was nullified things started to change more union started using strikes as a tool to try to improve their pay and working conditions. But even so the victories tended to be really small, a successful strike might involve a wage increase of just a few pennies, and this wasn't unique to Canada or to nineteen nineteen it was part of a pattern in many parts of the world both before. And after nine hundred nineteen in one thousand nine hundred eighteen for example, a partial general strike in Winnipeg secured higher wages for the members of four civic, Union's Winnipeg's in one thousand nine hundred nine strikes started with its metal and building workers, both of these industries had lots of small unions that had established councils to try to represent all of them together because we're the building trades council and the metal. Trades council. The idea was that the unions had more bargaining power than workers did individually, but then these councils had more bargaining power than the individual unions did, if they were trying to negotiate separately. But the metal and building industries had nearly opposite responses to this attempt to collectively bargain. The builder's exchange was open to the idea of negotiating with the building trades council, negotiating with all the builders unions at once seemed like an efficient way to get one contract in place that apply to everyone. But even though the builder's exchange was expecting a postwar housing boom. It didn't think it could meet the building trades councils demands for better pay. Meanwhile, Winnipeg's three biggest metalworking companies were Manitoba bridge, and ironworks. The Vulcan iron works and the dominion bridge company. These were together known as the big three while the builder's exchange was expecting to get more work after the war. A lot of a metal production had been tied to wartime industries. Are being shut down? So the big three weren't really open to negotiating with the entire bettle trades council at once they thought they would get better terms by working with the nineteen member unions individually, they also sort of seemed more interested in saying that they supported worker's rights to collectively bargain than actually recognizing and bargaining with the unions, people felt like they were getting a lot of lip service from them on may. First nineteen nineteen the building trades council voted to go on strike, having been unsuccessful in their negotiations for higher wages the next day, the members of the metal trades council walked off the job as well. Not only because they wanted better pay in a forty hour workweek, but also because they wanted the big three to recognize the middle trades council as their collective bargaining unit these weren't the only workers voting to strike when a peg streetcar workers voted to strike at about the same time, although their strike didn't start immediately. And then in mid may workers. In other industries throughout the city joined the building and metal workers in a sympathetic strike, and we'll talk more about that after a sponsor break. Hey, I'm Andy. If you don't know me, it's probably, because I'm not famous, but I did start a men's grooming company called Harry's. The idea for Harry's came out of a frustrating experience. I had buying razor blades. Most brands were overpriced over designed and out of touch at Harry's. Our approach is simple. Here's our secret, we make sharp durable blades and sell them at honest prices for as low as two dollars each. We care about quality so much that we do some crazy things like a world class German blade factory obsessing over every detail means we're confident and offering one hundred percent quality guarantee. Millions of guys have already made the switch to Harry's. So thank you. If you're one of them, and if you're not, we hope you give us a try with this special offer, get a Harry starter set with a five blade razor waited handle shave gel, and a travel cover all for just three bucks. Plus free shipping. Just go to harrys dot com and enter four four. Four four at checkout. That's harrys dot com code four four four four. Enjoy. The Winnipeg trades and labor council or WT. L C is labor council that represents a whole collection of member unions. And it still exists today on may sixth, nineteen nineteen the WTO see polled its members about whether to join the building and metal unions and a sympathetic strike, and the result was an overwhelming. Yes with more than eleven thousand people voting in favor of going on strike in fewer than six hundred voting. No people voting. Yes, generally wanted to support the striking building and metalworkers and to reinforce the idea of collective bargaining in Winnipeg people voting no did. So for a number of reasons some thought that a strike wasn't necessary in this case others were in lower paying industries, and didn't think they should have to go without income to support people who were at the higher end of the pay scale for Winnipeg's. Unionized workers the general strike began at eleven AM on may fifteenth. That was the official start time. Although some people were striking. Earlier than that, some of the first workers to walk out where the switchboard operators, also known as the Hello girls. They collect out at the end of their shift at seven AM, and the next shift didn't come on to replace them. Also among the first to walk out where the bread and cake workers, which was another largely female occupation with shifts that ended in the very early morning hours. The sympathetic strike included both public and private employees, public employees included police and firefighters postal workers utility workers private employers included people who worked in factories and shops in transportation, about thirty thousand workers went on strike and about half of those participating did. So even though they weren't in a union. This brought the entire city to an almost immediate. Standstill a strike committee was also established to manage the strike it self and to keep essential services running as the strike was going on. It's fifty three members were elected from each of the WTO sees. Member unions, two of the committee were women. Meanwhile, Winnipeg's business, and civic leaders formed, the citizens committee of one thousand two both oppose the strike and to recruit people to replace the striking workers and essential industries, the citizens committee was extremely secretive, and it wasn't always clear who was and wasn't a member. And which efforts, they were organizing in which were being handled by other people in general, though, many of its members came from the Winnipeg board of trade, the Winnipeg branch of the Canadian Manufacturers Association and the Manitoba bar association shortly after the strike started the citizens committee, the strike committee, and representatives from the Winnipeg government all met to try to work out a plan to keep things like the switchboard's and the water system and milk, and bread delivery, and firefighting operational. The result was an agreement that these types of services could continue to operate with a permit that was issued by the strike committee this. Clued things like the milk delivery trucks, having placards in the front that they were quote permited by authority of the strike committee. Very similar to some of the businesses during the Limerick strike. We talked about exactly. Here's an explanation published by William Evans, in the western labor news, on may seventeenth, it ram under the headline, why some industries are running, and it read quote theaters and picture shows are running under strike permit so that the worker can keep off the streets milk, and bread concerns are running under permits to feed the people hospitals are given permits so that the sick may not suffer. Water is kept at low pressure rather than cut off, so that the worker, she'll be able to get it light is supplied for the same reason. So it is with all these industries that work under permit of the straight committee. They are supplying the prime necessities of life to the worker, so that the fight may be carried on until it is won. All these concerns are organized fully and could be stopped at a minute's notice. But for the. Present the strike committee believes that it is better to let them run. Hence its order for them to stay on the job under permit. The citizens committee in the Winnipeg government were deeply opposed to the idea that essential services were being permitted by the strike committee, that seems too much like the strike committee, had just decided when and how to run the city. So the citizens committee and the government started focusing their attention on breaking the strike on getting people back to work as soon as possible to that, end the citizens committee organized its own volunteers to replace striking workers, this included six hundred people to operate the telephone and telegraph exchange of volunteer fire department and of all in tier security team to guard the fire boxes so that the fire department wasn't driven to exhaustion by false alarms. Some of the false alarms were pranks and others were meant to intentionally harass strikebreakers. The citizens committee also brought in volunteers to pump gas at the gas stations. And to run the. Pumps in the municipal water system. The strike committee, denounced all these volunteer groups as scabs, but there was a whole other layer to all of this, besides just the striking workers on one side, and the citizens committee in the city government on the other side, the government and the citizens committee also became absolutely convinced that this was not a simple labor dispute at all. Instead, they believed that radical communists and Bolsheviks had infiltrated Winnipeg's labour movement, and that this was a coordinated effort to violently overthrow the government of Winnipeg and replace it with a communist dictatorship. This idea was there, right from the beginning and was part of the reporting in most, but not all of the newspapers covering the story. For example, on may sixteenth, the Vancouver, world ran a headline that read Soviet government is in control in Winnipeg on may twenty second in the Winnipeg citizen, quote the red element, which planned to bring about anarchy in this country and on the ruins build a tyranny. Is made up of a small Genta of avowed Bolsheviks, who have succeeded by persistent scheming in taking the place of the sane leaders with an almost solid foreign born following also connected to all of this was the idea of one big union, which would represent all the workers in western Canada. This was a real idea, the trades and labour, congress of Canada had discussed it at the western labor conferences on March thirteenth of nineteen nineteen, but the one big union didn't exist yet. And it would not formally form in Calgary until June fourth at which point, the strike was well underway, even so there was this widespread perception that the one big union was behind the strike, and that all of it was an alien plot. They came to this conclusion, even though that union didn't exist yet. It did not help that the one big union idea was also connected to the industrial workers of the world. They key, the wobbly knees which were so widely reviled. And we're the targets and producers of so much propaganda that it is still hard to tell what was real. And what wasn't we talked about them in our bisbee deportation episode, just ignore the times that we finally called them the international workers of the world? You know that was my fault these things happen. To be clear, there were certainly Bolshevist and communists, among Winnipeg's labor unions, and among the striking workers, the striking workers were not a model with some wanted to strike for better pay and working conditions in recognition of their labor unions and labor councils. Others were certainly a lot more radical. And thought that capitalism itself needed to be replaced with some other more equitable system, and some of the language that was used among the strikers did praise the Russian revolution and favored, a more socialist or communist economic system. But there is no indication at all that this strike was part of a huge conspiracy to violently overthrow the Canadian government. Even so the government and the citizens committee heavily pushed the idea that this whole thing was the result of Soviet and communist influences. They insisted that aliens were to blame and characterized Winnipeg's growing Slavic and Jewish immigrant community as having taken. Over Winnipeg's labour. They maintain this position in spite of the fact that almost all of the prominent organizers of the strike itself, where people who had emigrated to Canada from Britain, not from somewhere else in Europe. In fact, there were no new immigrants from eastern or central Europe, on the strike committee at all the government and the citizens committee, also maintained this position in spite of the fact that as many as eighty five percent of Winnipeg's returning veterans were in support of the strike and veterans became increasingly visible among the strikers, as time went on this alternately became violent and we're going to talk about that after we I pause for a little sponsor break.

The Winnipeg general strike manage to unite workers all three Winnipeg largely cutting across gender, ethnicity and economic status its size and its scope were unprecedented in Canadian history. But at the same time, the government of Manitoba didn't really want to get involved in the early days of the strike. It left it largely up to the strike committee, and the citizens committee of one thousand and the city government to try to work it out among themselves, as we noted earlier the strike began on may fifteenth. The Winnipeg Tribune joined the strike returning to work on may twenty fours on the twenty sixth postal workers were ordered to return to their posts, but refused on may twenty ninth about two thousand veterans marched to the capitol to demand that employers be required to recognize collective bargaining rights two days later, ten thousand people made the same March to hear premier Tobias Norris's response. But he told them that was not. Within his control on June fourth a different group of veterans ones who opposed the strike marched to the capital to offer their assistance to restore order on June fifth. There were two different veterans parades, one opposing the strike and one supporting it, and that same day the province band parades. There are a lot of parades a lot. Yeah. There's a lot of marks the same things that you see another strikes were all happening here. There was a lot of marching demonstrating all of that going on through Alvis and although the government of Manitoba was reluctant to get involved. The federal government was concerned that this strike might spread to other cities, so in early June Gideon Robertson. He was minister of labour and Arthur, Megan who was minister of the interior and acting minister of Justice came to Winnipeg to assess the situation, but they only met with the citizens committee of one thousand they did not meet with the strike committee, or any of the strikers through all of this there. Were lectures, demonstrations educational events anti coordinated outreach program largely staffed by women to distribute food and supplies to the striking workers of we noted earlier, most of the leaders of the strike were immigrants to Canada from Britain, and on June six candidate, change the terms of the Immigration Act to allow British born immigrants to Canada and naturalized Canadian citizens to be deported if they were charged with sedition parliament, also expanded the definition of sedition in the criminal code also make the definition were abroad as well as include guilt by association on June ninth Winnipeg's police force was ordered to return to work denounce the strike and signed loyalty oaths. They refused and the city fired the mo-, replacing them with a force of eighteen hundred special constables known as specials most of whom were affiliated with the citizens committee of thousand they were armed with clubs and received a Sal. Theory that was higher than the police officers. They were replacing a day later, a riot broke out after specials on horseback armed with clubs charged into a demonstration on June twelfth a mass gathering in Victoria Park was nicknamed ladies day for its focus on working women by that point workers, and other parts of Canada were starting to strike in support of the workers in Winnipeg as well on June fourteenth the Vancouver, Sun scheduled an editorial titled no revolution in Vancouver that prompted that papers workers to walk off the job for four days. Canada's railroad unions hadn't participated in the strike in early June. They had offered to act as mediators railroad workers union structure was very similar to what the building workers had, and with the metal wanted individual unions rolled up into the, federated trades, and then the federated trades rolled up to an organization called division, four division, four appointed the negotiating. Committee, which negotiated for all the member unions on gene sixteenth, after ongoing negotiations through the railroad unions, the big three metal companies agreed to negotiate with the separate metalworking unions. But they made no mention of the metal trades council, they made this agreement under huge pressure from Gideon Robertson, the minister of labour who was worried that if the strike when a lot longer the railroad workers, who had been acting as mediators might ultimately, join it as well apart from the huge impact, this would have by shutting down the railroad, if the railroad workers joined the strike, that was probably going to cause the strike to just spread through the tire country, rather than having a few isolated communities that were supporting the strike with their own strike the leaders of the railroad unions, who had acted as negotiators released a statement that this was the same type of collective bargaining that the railroad workers enjoyed, but it really wasn't the reason for this about face is not entirely clear. But the railroad unions were also under. A lot of pressure from the minister of labour to get things resolved. And they feared they might lose their own unions recognition, if they didn't bring things to a close the general strike committee was really not satisfied with this outcome, especially because they had not even seen the last round of proposals during the negotiations before this announcement came about an agreement being reached there was also just a lack of clarity about exactly how to define collective bargaining. That was yet another layer of complexity in this whole situation. The big three was insisting that workers had collective bargaining powers because they had agreed to recognize the individual unions, but the workers or at least the more elite among the workers insisted that they did not have collective bargaining because the big three would not recognize the metal trades council, the strike committee, refused to call off the strike. So on June seventeenth, the north west mounted police aided by specials, raided the homes of several strike leaders, interested ten of the most prominent. As well as to members of the one big union, which by this point existed groups of eastern. European immigrants were arrested as well. And after the strike was over Canada. Deported waves of immigrants who were suspected of Bolshevism or communism, the arrested strike committee members were taken to Stony mountain penitentiary and they included union and labor leaders, John Queen a, a heaps, Robert, Lloyd. Russell and George Armstrong, Armstrong's wife, Helen was the head of the women's labour league, and it was one of the strikes, most visible women. She refused to let the authorities take her husband until she had confirmation that they actually had a warrant William Ivan's of the western labor news was also arrested, as was Roger e Bray, who was a former private in the Canadian army, who had been trying to rally support for the strike among military veterans initially the plan was to immediately deport the British-born strike leadership, but it became clear that even people who are opposed to the strike thought this was extreme. So. Authorities charged them with seditious conspiracy and planned to bring them to trial. Four days after these arrests on June twenty-first striking workers held a silent parade that day, the city's streetcars had started running again and the demonstrators stopped one of the streetcars and tipped it over this prompted the north west mounted police, and the specials to charge into the strikers, killing two people, and injuring at least thirty nearly one hundred people were arrested. The incident was nicknamed bloody Saturday and afterward federal troops occupied the city of Winnipeg at this point, the strikes, most vocal and radical leadership had been arrested leaving more moderate people in charge, and people began to fear that there would be more violence and more deaths if the strike continued, so on June twenty fifth nineteen nineteen the strike ended in the workers, who had not been fired for striking return to their jobs and the end this strike achieved almost none of its goals, the metalworkers hours. Reduced by five per week, which was less than the reduction they had asked for. But that was really it civic employees were also required to sign documents attesting that they would not strike again in the future before they were allowed to return to their jobs afterward. There was a hugely bitter divide between labor and capital. The citizens committee of one thousand continued to try to undermine labor organization long after the strike was over the strike. And the committee's continued work had an overall chilling effect on labor activism, immediately afterward in July of nineteen nineteen a commission was convened to investigate what had happened during the strike, just as our Robeson led the inquiry and rejected the idea that it was a revolution meant to overthrow the government. His report supported the idea that this was a dispute over the issue of collective bargaining and that the strike was not seditious. And it's character in spite of that several of the strikes, leaders were tried for seditious conspiracy in November of nineteen nineteen. In the early months of nineteen twenty in prosecutions that were funded by the department of Justice under the war, appropriation act. Robert Boyd, Russell was convicted in December nineteen nineteen on March twenty seventh nineteen twenty six other leaders were convicted of seditious conspiracy. Roger e Bray was also convicted of being a common nuisance that immediate chilling effect on Canada's labor movement started to lift as these trials were happening. Labor leaders were elected in both municipal and provincial elections in nine hundred nineteen in nineteen twenty some of those leaders were still incarcerated for the role in the strike that they had played when they were elected the conservative party was defeated in the nineteen twenty one federal election and the newly elected government promised labor reforms provinces also started enacting collective bargaining legislation in the nineteen forties. With the federal government enacting a collective bargaining statute in nineteen forty eight after being released many. The strikes leaders went on to be active in the labor movement. And in the government John Queen and William Ivan's. Bo served in the Manitoba legislature. And John Queen served as the mayor of Winnipeg for seven nonconsecutive terms. Abraham he was elected as a member of parliament, j s woods worth had been charged in connection to the strike. But those charges were later dropped he became a member of parliament as well. He also helped found the cooperative Commonwealth federation, which later became the new Democratic Party since the series, the hundredth anniversary of the strike happening. There's been a lot going on related to it in the last few years, monument to the strike was unveiled at lily street at market avenue and twenty seventeen. That monument is made of metal to honor the striking metalworkers a bloody Saturday monument was scheduled to be unveiled on June twenty-first twenty nineteen that is after we are recording this podcast, but before the podcast is coming out. There's also been a lot of hundred anniversary stuff. Happening in Winnipeg, including a huge labor conference to sort of commemorate it and function as a labour conference. Do you have listener mail? I do it listener mail. I'm not sure the name of the listener who has sent this. They didn't sign the Email, but it says I was wondering if you could provide more context regarding the Quakers and others, that would not have the bell rung for them that were referenced that was in the Samuel peeps. Episode, mainly, why would Quakers not want the bell rung and why even ringing the bell in the first place. I listened on the regular and appreciate the stimulating thoughts conjure up the rest of the day after listening to this pod. So thank you for this Email. So that was in the Samuel peeps episode and Samuel peeps diary, about how many people had died of the plague he made a comment about how the number might actually be a lot higher because of Quakers and others who would not have the bell rung for them. So there were bells being rung. For lots of different reasons at this point in London. And then specifically during the plague for multiple reasons bells would be rung at churches when deaths were reported and bells would also be rung at burials part of this was required by law. The idea was that if they were these bells ringing, every time somebody died that maybe people would remember to take precautions about the plague, but all of this bell ringing was happening when people had a church that they were part of, and we're being buried in the churchyard and Quakers and other people who were part of like non-conforming denominations, were generally being buried in their own graveyard that wasn't part of a church and did not have that church bell connected to it. So I think that's what he's referring to in terms of the bell being rung, usually when Quakers and others were buried that just wasn't part of the, the funeral or the death notify. Nations. So that has led to some lack of clarity in terms of the death records from the plague because a lot of the record keeping was being kept through formal church channels. So if you were part of non-conforming religion that did not have those church channels your death might not ever be formally recorded. So thank you for that question.

Give you the best service possible. Thank you very much very informative. Thanks a lot mike. And we'll talk to some burden. Had a great day so for the purposes of this report is divided. The houses into three price categories the first one is what i would call the entry level luxury category that is from five hundred thousand to seven hundred thousand dollars. Currently there are one hundred. Twenty seven houses available in this price range and that is everywhere in winnipeg plus west saint paul oak bank or bluff lasalle some of the bedroom communities that are close around winnipeg immediate days on market of those houses is forty two days and you will see that in these higher price ranges it will take longer to sell those than let's say a three hundred thousand dollar house which are gone almost immediately over the past sixty days because i do this report every two months. We've sold one hundred and seven houses in this price range. And we're going to see how that compares in the next report and eventually how it compares the previous year inventory levels. Sit at sixty six days in other words. If no further homes were listed in this price category at the current rate of sale it would take just over two months to sell everything. That's out there of interest is the fact that of those listings hundred and twenty seven available houses. The maximum days on market is two hundred twelve in other words. There's a listing. That's been on the market for nearly seven months again not unusual in this price range and the maximum days on market of the sold houses. Those hundred seven. That's sold the one that took the longest to sell two hundred ninety eight days just shy of ten months again. Not unusual in the next price range. That's the one between seven hundred thousand and one million dollars. We currently have sixty three houses available with the median days on market at thirty nine. The longest on market in this in this section is one hundred seventy one days over the past two months. We've sold just twenty three houses in this price range and the one that took the longest to sell was just shy of seven months or right at seven months. It was two hundred and thirteen days. Inventory is one hundred and sixty four days so when you compare that to the homes in the lower price range you can see. It's nearly three times as long and here. We ended up at the True luxury homes. Those ones that are priced at a million dollars and more. Currently there are twenty eight homes in the million plus range in and around winnipeg the most expensive available home. Currently is two point. Four million dollars in tuxedo of those available the mean days on market or the median days on market is forty four and the one that's on the market. The longest is two hundred and sixty five days over the past two months. We have sold just nine of these houses nine. In the million plus range the longest on the market there was five months hundred and fifty one days and the most expensive home sold in the past. Two months was one point. Seven million in an area called a cinnabon. Landing inventory is up at one hundred and eighty seven days so once again to explain if there was no further new listings coming to market. Today it would take us a hundred and eighty seven days to sell everything that's out there. It's obviously the higher this number the slower the market in the price range of two hundred and fifty three hundred thousand dollars. The inventory tends to sit in in hot times of the year. Consider on thirty days a month. So this This one hundred eighty seven days. We're going to see condos are even higher than that. We'll be right back after this short announcement. Are you looking to buy a house or a condo and winnipeg work with the agent who takes the time to explain the process to you guiding you. Through every step for surface beyond the sale book your home-buying consultation with bo coffman of remax performance today bono's real estate which ultimately brings us to the condo section. And the reason i put just one segment for condos. there just. aren't that many. For example there are no million dollar plus condo sales in the past couple of months. Currently there are twenty one condos priced at five hundred thousand dollars or more deaths. In the entire city of winnipeg the mean days of market are seventy four and the condo. That's available for the longest period of time is at two hundred and thirty six days the most expensive available condo it's been listed since for the summer. It's three point. Two five million dollars. In one of the most prestigious winnipeg tum address at number one wellington crescent eight thousand square feet with spectacular views and amenities over the past. Sixty days. we've sold just four condos at half million dollars or more many of these condos that did sell. Were brand new buildings. The most expensive one that sold with seven hundred eighty five thousand dollars in north called donen. None sold at over a million dollars. Obviously and inventory is at three hundred and fifteen days so as i was saying the higher that number the slower the market. So if you're selling a luxury condo that's a half million dollars or more even close to a half million. Just be patient. It does take longer time. Thank you very much for listening to this.

"Okay so welcome everybody to another session in the so for limited Tokyo talk series around the global pandemic or trying to give people a snapshot of what everyone's experience has been in different parts of the world Today I have a lovely friend of mine coming from Canada Could you introduce yourself for for the audience one? My name is Amanda Lily. I'm a health coach in personal trainer. I specialize in helping everyday person to eat more pump based and to incorporate more physical activity into a life of find a way to combine those and still be able to address everything else. That's going on whether it's looking for the families or be part of the community and really lane people know. How does it have to be you know a lot of times? People think that you know of you're switching your diet you gotta make more than one stopper or if you're starting exercise program. Now you're taking time from your kids or that kind of thing so I really show people how they combine gone away that fits their lifestyle and also help them meet their Benefit them and meet their goals when it comes to their help so for people watching this where we're even doing all these ambitious activities. Where were you based right now? I'm the Winnipeg Manitoba Canada but I also do some nicer sis as well So obviously things have changed. I think Canada's first case was somewhere in the middle to late January. I'm not sure of Winnipeg But the last few months saw how things changed you within the city of Winnipeg. Maybe the bigger sense candidate or Manitoba. Yeah a lot has changed but I am so grateful for where we live because in Canada we allot precautions. We're taking right away and I think that that's one of the reasons. We don't have as many cases as other countries have we were of the later. Wants to get hit and we also were kind of prepared for it. So as soon as people in Canada started getting As soon as we knew that covid nineteen air we were told to do more social distancing. Wash your hands more. So there's a law campaigns to get people to do those things and it was really surprising. See how much people listened and was starting to keep more distance away from each other even in the grocery stores and places like that but as cases got worse there was encouragement people to not go out as much their restrictions on gathering and those restrictions lilly smaller smaller over time so I was like a hundred people fifty people and now I remember. It's down to ten people that's the most you can have a M- fiscal be a gathering and at the same time within the last. I guess it's been probably almost a month. All non-essential services have been closed down. I guess not quite among some things closed before that so I work at a gym and our Jim was closed even before the non essential services close. Just because you're considered a high risk Leith which I completely understand I think even Without this pandemic cap thing. It's a shared space where people are in close quarters with each other in all touching the same equipment. We were closed. Shut down even before the nonessential services reclosing shutdown. So at this point you can still get groceries. You can still go to the pharmacy. You may have to wait in line for a long time. And they're only letting so many people in once so it's really changed the way that we are approaching our lives in a few different ways so some people have reduced income are laid off The or other emergency benefits of the country is offering so very grateful for that Sir. Income will be changed reduced. And also when you have to wait in line that long to go out or you know that you're increasing your risk of getting or spreading the virus vijay note. It makes me think twice but whether or not you need to go get those items or us of the things we've been doing is kind of planning for example our meals out a little bit more so that we can by several weeks of groceries at one rather than a week's worth of groceries like we used to so think gum mistaken you actually made a video a little while ago And this was sort of your quarantine preparation a grocery order right. I think that you did that was supposed to go for a week or two exactly. Yeah so that. That's a video. I think you'll probably be posting a link to it to take a look at so was a video that I did just kind of last minute when we picked up our groceries because I realized that it's something people would benefit from steen that you can eat hot. Based in a way that you're still have items that can sit indefinitely pretty much in the pantry like dry beans and lentils. What kinds of food you can make those things you can put in the freezer Things that do law slip it long enough ranch or how you can prepare them so they last longer in the fridge and just to get you thinking about how you can still enjoy your food. Be Creative Andy. Even if you are shopping as frequently and I know for us even the pickups the laws stores offer pickup option are now booking a week or tune VAT bill. You can't just wait till you run out of food to book for another pickup or of course can also go to the stores and we in line to get inside so that's an option to but if you've got little ones are looking for other family members you know you can't just leave three three hours to go to. What am I mean in terms of like public transit and everything like talking about going to places I mean is that still running in Winnipeg or is it like limited servicer so right now the middle of April week do still how transit? I haven't been on public transit since this began to be honest. I'm not sure what it looks like on the buses but I do know that that's been talked about quite a bit the media that they're still running and I have seen them running however they are not letting people together and things like that. There is more distant in the people who are riding the bus. We DO SLOW. Public Transportation and the taxes are still runny Is The snow gone? You Defense Day you agonists. I can't days next stop so I mean like for me. I've had a change what my focus is on. 'cause I've been home so much more and we'll probably get into that leader but it also means I'm losing track of the days but dig will be early for us but then we thought it was spraying. Everything was melted muddy upside later. Oh we hit the dump of snow that was like several feet deep within a couple of days and then we waited for that to go away in the meantime away for it to go way. We ended up building a snow fort and having snowball fights and stuff so that was a lot of fun. And because we're all whole more. We get to engage in things like that as a family which I really appreciate And then it went away but now they're still like ice everywhere and sometimes you wake up. It's snowing and it's gone by the end of the day though it depends on what day and what our you asked me if I was looking at the window right now. It's like yeah. There's no snow but there's still chunks of ice around so But in terms of like the delivery and stuff when wind that start with like grocer delivered kids I know here like a lot of the will the grab of just Kinda like Uber and lifts and stuff like they've there's been grabbed food delivery for pretty much lake since the first time. I remember coming here like you could go on your app just mainly restaurants and stuff but I think now it's expanded to like basically everything so but at home like I feel like some grocery stores did offer it maybe Riley deal with customer service could be like a pickup or something but like the online thing was. I feel like a lot of shifted to this now because like necessity and that actually been really interesting to see the creativity that businesses come up with in order to continue their business. I mean for them. It's probably inactive survival but as a consumer. It's just really interesting to the how creative people have been so that they can still offer the services that offer though a lot of places have gone online. A lot of places offered delivery and pickup. That didn't offer it before Before it was maybe a couple of grocery stores that did and now I feel at this point. It seems like every grocery store Even if it's like a pet store or trying to think of other examples places but they were they'll do like even a curbside pickup so now you can order online and then hole up. Open your trunk it back your vehicle and they pedal the stuff in for you and the driveway. So there's a lot of that happening to where people don't interact at all in some ways. The kinda makes me sad because I someone who likes talk to people strangers but I understand that. I think it's been really critical. People have come up with ways so they don't house up close proximity Others at risk. Have you heard I mean in terms of like the online Maybe asking more but this I'm not experiencing it like I mean here. The markets are still open like in the morning. So that's been getting most of my stuff So I haven't had to do like the online thing but I mean in terms of like the variety have you finding like maybe there's a lot of stuff that normally would get at the store that just isn't listed online or not necessarily in terms of stock but just like simply like maybe because I feel like a Lotta the Vegan products and stuff? I mean it's fairly popular in Canada but definitely was sort of like a niche part of the grocery store. I'm wondering if maybe when they set up this online stuff if they were like all right get the big things on their. Don't worry about like the vegan protein bars. 'cause five people order those. Have you noticed a big difference? Or you're craving certain ams the you can order. Though there are businesses that are close completely for now and the ones that are open and shifting to offering more online whether it's delivery or curbside pickup don't seem to have everything online yet whether it's objects allure food So I mean they probably just put on whatever the essentials were that they need to put on a places. Do you have the option where you're paying order? Which says other comment though? I've used before to be like if you happen to have frozen thin edge you throw that in so I thought before and sometimes places will call you to see what you mean to clarify or when you get there. They'll just as this. Okay so I feel like a lot of places are being very comedy in that way later right. Not Everything's on and even when you go in the store not everything's there slow. I'm sure even though you're said the world you've probably heard of the disappearance of toilet paper paper anywhere Which is really interesting. Hell that's creating some sub community in a way because people who like their of course there are people trying to sell it marksman parking lots and things like that leisler whites and toilet paper things like that. So now we have I don't know what you would call them. But like you know people that bought products extra and they're trying to sell it or on Kiji and they're trying to sell it to make a profit but you'll still have a family or co workers where we have these tasks 'cause we're trying keep in touch with each other on different programs with apper or text or whatever and be like. Hey I found toilet paper. I bought a couple who needs some drop it off. And so that's happened to your trading toilet paper other items with people so it it's interesting to see how this is all tornado but in terms of other items that have disappeared. When I went grocery shopping when pandemic I started before they play on more restrictions may in line all that kind of stuff and the only thing that seemed to be missing really at that time was still a paper in Leisa wipes and stuff like that but there was Other food items they newest were gone on the shelves quite frequently as well A lot of good and I was shocked to see that guide beans lentils were one of those things that I was like. Oh this is the last big of can you be lost? Big of I was shocked. And I I that actually makes me really happy because these people are eating beans lentils and rice in that kind of But that's also why I had ad that that kind of stuff into my grocery vigilant. People see it they watch it later giving ideas of foods that you can make with those ingredients because they are things that last in the cupboards for years without going pennies per meal to use them. Something you can feed your family. It's nutritious than this guy. No how to cook to toilet paper is like because I've been hearing the jokes but it actually is like a rare thing right now winnipeg. Will you come up to stories? Allow them have boards at the front. Now that was that has Titles like a common groceries and then a hub two columns what's stock and what's not in stock so it will say Like we went to Costco the other day. And then what's Nana stock like wipes was on of the things that was on there? And what's in talk is like it will say like toilet paper Racer Lower. Whatever so like looking for whether or not. We'll be there because you end up waiting in line so long you need to know if they have. You're looking you can't just go the way you would normally. Wow I yeah I mean I haven't I haven't asked folks at home. I think they're doing okay for toilet. Paper I heard also actually I think it was in the states that sales of days went up like the will. I would call them here. It's not quite as fancy as just like a little sort of gun that has like a hose that attaches to your toilet and then you can just shoot it when you need it an impairment but apparently like the fancier version would be the actual like coal unit Apparently those sales went up in the states. I think it was because people were kind of like okay. We'll toilet paper disappearing so we need to figure out ways to cut down on it and personally after being in like Saudis for over three years. Now I'm like yes. Go that route because I totally okay with it now unlike that is so much easier than like wasting so much toilet paper. I mean. There's obviously the waterways but in terms of the pandemic it seems like toilet papers becoming gold and I mean I haven't heard of like issues with like tap water access while obviously except for places where it's been a long term issue so I don't I don't know if Canada's seen an increase in those sales yeah I saw the toilet everything was a joke by now. That's amazing disappointing. It's real don't see it as frequently and I I thumbed places again whether it's objects groceries aren't getting their regular shipments either so that's also creating a shortage of different things to do with the paper by no it does with some other items So I mean judging from the video you did. You seem to have a pretty good stock now are you. Are you okay right now? Item should should we be worried about year's supply of toilet paper and other things? You're not one of the orders are you. Are you doing aside business until the paper sales? No and I never thought of until her people were doing that. That's just I didn't think that Yeah no we're good here. We're very fortunate because like you mentioned with running water and stuff where we are. You know we'd still have all over regular services in terms of water garbage pickup that kind of thing and we do have a full size reeser downstairs some definitely taking advantage of that mom and some pantry space so we've got a a stock of food to get US or a few weeks for sure. No problems I do feel grateful for that and I know even when I was living in an apartment you know you have a freezer section the fridge not that big to be able to store extra stuff in New England that you might have to stick more to pantry stuff and maybe start a box in the living room of the pantry items. Say That people should word food but the reality is maybe don't need to horrid you three or six months of food. I've heard people. I've heard people suggest had do that. It wasn't our government suggesting not offered on social media. Somebody said that but I do think that people should have at least two weeks of food because you need to give time that you have to put in order or if you have to find a day that you're able to leave your kids with somebody And find someone state that they can do that with. You know like there's just so many factors that make it harder to get to the store and then you have to plan a vast like okay it. Pick up this only safest option for you. Moi Probably won't be picking up for another week or two of enough stuff to last you in between those pickups as well and then when you do the pickup you don't know they'll have everything that you ordered by the time that they come so yeah you definitely need to have at least a couple of weeks of food available Brushed off. You're probably GONNA run out and then you know having frozen veggies on hand some dry beans lentils those kinds of things is really gonNA help you have Rosa through so there are ways to still eat Mentioned before healthly you so choose not to say people knew I can understand if someone's open bigger chips right now or you'd extra parker whatever I get it but we have to remember that this time isn't GonNa last forever but our health is something that is going to affect how were able to move forward after this and if you have extra time now why no not take that time to learn some new recipes and figuring out what your family enjoys that you're like. Hey this is a healthy recipe. We like it. We're GONNA add this to our list recipes that we make or If you're hoping to allow people by committed Oh never use it as your chance to learn how to use the fancy typically bought two years ago right lake acts everybody uses them they just hang their launch. Home gained a habit of doing yoga for ten minutes every morning. Or whatever rate licks there are really ways that the time can be beneficial to help us in the long run and that's not just one at a whole bunch of chores and stress to people's lives right now but I mean away. That's actually kind of exciting because it's an opportunity. We don't usually get just slow down for a second prioritize and spend more time. Plan you what? We want our future to look like right now. We're kind of force I mean for for those of us who have the choice. Like the option to be able to be home in I think I found it kind of funny like when when sort hit candidate was like march ish when it really kind of blew up. I feel like soon after like the media was already training like when. Is this going to be over? Like how long should we expect this from here? I was like it's been like a week. People like I think you can hold on a little while longer than that like. It's okay I mean I get like you know. Get not wanting to do it. But if you're able to have the option to stay at home and everything like being able to prepare the groceries and stuff if you can do it just generally makes it a lot easier and less risky for. Everyone can like everyone that has to be going out for work or whatever reason like not being another person in that lineup at the grocery store and you know all of that is going to make it easier for the people that have to be there have. Has there been anything like I know. I don't know if it was Canada wide but I know I heard some stories that I think between the two big change. They were going to organize like certain hours for like seniors and people. That were complex. There's so many good things that like. I said puke places of being creative in inconsiderate of of the needs of care customers in which I should also mention that there are people who are still working lots of hours right lake obviously our frontline healthcare workers but also the people who are the grocery stores and Arlene enough. The grocery stores have been hiring of the major grocery stores are hiring so if people do need some extra work there. There is a little bit there so that you know not everyone's at home but some people are and everybody forgot your question but also wants to essentially career for the special hours like for the special hours so a lot of places not everywhere but a lot of places. The first hour is for like the first open for seniors and people who have disabilities or compromised immune systems or Different kinds of health concerns where they need to be environment Freshly cleaned and full of people. So I that's awesome that that's being offered some places. Don't have it every day. They might have a Monday Wednesday Friday or something like that and then moves places. How reduced hours? So whether that's produce days or reduced hours each day or both on the other I was GONNA mention. I realize I haven't said is into build off your After week you know in Canada being like when's IT GONNA end? Is that each province kind of handling things a little bit differently but imagine Toba. They seem to be Hanley a little bit at a time. Like when it first happened like okay. Will you know? It's just wash your hands extra social distancing for few weeks. See where that gets us. Okay you know. We have to take more precautions. Gyms or closing p places like that where there was a lot of shared libraries stuff closed and then Okay couple of weeks later and the kids are GONNA have extra couple of weeks off of school around spring break and then after that okay. Kids aren't coming back and then a live after. That was like okay. We don't know what they're coming back at all this year so the kind of been taken a little by little but there's other promises That were not right away but pretty much close to begin with like okay schools when they when if I was like they weren't like to where they're like. Okay you're offer you weeks. It was just like okay. We'll done for the year but that being said it's not like the kids aren't doing any work they are still like at least a Manitoba. They still have work to do at home classrooms and stuff. They're just not going to schools to win. Should stay. There is no squash. I mean they're not going to school. So my poor son Tommy. How much how boring school is when he's with those mom all day with other kids child Look I feel for him. He hasn't played with another kid for weeks. He's actually very considering. He hates talking with phones. I'm like hey call your resume like no because then have to be on the phone. I don't know some kids just don't like on. The bill is their online learning curriculum. Or they just kind of like busy okay and in depends on their grade level. So He's in elementary. So it's more about. Let's keep the brains active Lindsey. What they can do at home It doesn't necessarily affect their grades if anything integrates might improve they're not going to get their Cessnas Dunn's like obviously they're not gonna be able to their reading assessment done at the end of the grade The most grades due at the end of the school year. Believe that they're not gonna get but I imagine that will be implemented into the next year And one of things. My son does like lizzo schooling. Though is that we go by doing you know hour by hour. This is the science. Math is whatever I told them. Okay beginning the day. We're GONNA break down all these things you have to the day. So he's got some of the stuff his teacher the signed For him for my son we also practice extra reading writing. We out things like that added on and then he does it when he does it. So some days he starts to seventy like done at nine or ten. You know if he can stay really focused. Days takes the entire day to do it because he just can't focus or he gets a strap and he goes and plays and whatever but for I told them like. Just you know if it takes you all day. That's your decision but we'll stacy's for lunch so he lakes that he can get up. Start School when he's ready and then be done by lunch most days in that way he likes it but he said he's like Oh. I missed gym class. New Play with the other kids and guests When you sit in a circle learnable different countries that the teacher not as fun when with you. Mama's with other kids he go. He's not shy at tell you yes I would for sure. I'm how have you have? You tried explaining to him like what the deal is right now. I mean I I don't know I mean obviously I think maybe there's like certain levels of detail depending on the age maybe like what. What was your sort of decision in terms of that? When you're by the way you're not going back right now you know what if the it's been so I like that. The information about it has just been everywhere everywhere. He can't get away from it like it's on the news anytime you going to website. A log website Pop up about it at the school. They're ready talking to the kids about it. Because we're changing over habits at home we were talking about it. Dander was also asked me about different symptoms every so often and so it is very regain stuff in the mail so is very commonplace to discuss it. Which I think is awesome. Because it's obviously we need to talk about any kind of pandemic that happens but the amount of literature that you can come across anywhere whether it's like posters mail website media but in some ways that can also cause fear people. I see it as a piece of information and I'm grateful that that information is there for other people I know they stayed as a stressor so it can depend on your perspective but yeah for my son. He is has never been hinted from him and he knows the symptoms. It's amazing to watch the news with us which I was surprised that he would he president and he asks questions about it but I think that art attitude about it really helped him understand what to be afraid of what not to be afraid of like obviously something serious but it doesn't mean that we all need to lose their shit by a years worth of toilet paper and I'd in their basement like we still need to communicate with friends family Keep in touch with people look after ourselves. Check in with You know I called my grandma and my parents and just checking with people or drop off food vote a neighbor whatever rates you still got an I think. In my humble opinion for people it is important for health mentally and spiritually to still keep in touch with others. So I don't know where I'm going with that but Yeah so to answer your question. Yes the knows what's going on But it's as our attitude about they think is the reason he's not your rate is he's in his knowledge in asking. We need to do to keep people safe in fact to the point that we did go to visit my mom a few weeks ago for her birthday. We had all been home for a long time. Already we were all safe. You know there's kind of two week. Mark he was still scared to go. See Grandma 'cause he doesn't make Grandma's great though? I'm on the phone. I she explained to him how we're okay. We've all thought so. He's not that he doesn't have concerns. The back of his mind but he still. They only come if he's rarely we can talk to him about them So I mean obviously I think it sounds like you kinda you kinda got things under control. how what your secret. What have you been doing to kind of get through this cope with it and I mean especially say with the family in general like however the through view getting through together. What are you doing? Maybe on your own which information's information. It doesn't mean to freak out and we're still taking a precautions. Keep ourselves another state. I think knowing that we are doing our part helps in keeping a good attitude about things. I am home most of the time now because Djembe closed I can help clients in person by having keep in touch with friends and family whether it's through video chat through even talking on the phone But a lot of my day is spent Being present with my son help him with a schoolwork and then making sure. We're going outside a lot. So I'm grateful that Ross where we are. We are still allowed to go size long as you keep a distance from other people off Street so when coming towards you. A one of you will usually across the street to cross another size if it's quite street. If it's busier you kinda just give each other space When you're going Spending more time with family my partner still working so we. You are just really grateful that we can get more chores done the when he gets home and he definitely helps us. I'm not just as anything but when we all work together as a family but at the same time because we have more time a home. We can kind of. Get some things done. He's he's we're spending time as a family instead of trying to Go errands or because that's not really thing. Now you don't just go do Aaron's now some people I suppose do but for us. You know not really think now so. We're not running out to do errands. Were no aunt Trying to do chores last minute homework last minute. Or whatever it's all can identify renting we can just enjoy each other's company but all three of us have been homeless law. Slow while mckearney takes them day so that we can introduce a rescue dog into a home. We adopted him and a call Okay yes so. I was actually hoping my puppy would make an appearance shoes. So pooped today. Her name is Sarah. She was three months old when the rescue founders had a broken leg and I know end her litter of puppies her mama's emaciated so they found the abandoned though They took them in. The other. Puppies rebelled to find homes. But they had to help her get healed up first before she could be adopted and so now she's eleven months old and just adopted her but the foster parents that hotter before there were of on And they all express how she still high energy and need of training but I think she's Her match with us. I was GonNa say knowing what I know about you and your son. I think that's fine. Yeah because you sleepy right out like I wanted her to call the video could be her. But she's just took it for Walker I think she's tired. We've been taking her on. A of trail walks. So that's another reason is because we live in Winnipeg. You know there's not that much around us. There is a law of nature outside of the city thankfully and we do have a vehicle so I mentioned these things because I know I am in a very good position right now and I'm still grateful for this but there is also lost. City parks also law trails within the city so there are options for people to go out and take advantage of those. And I've I've never seen people on these trails as I have the last few weeks so we have make space but at the same time like yes. People are getting outside like we're all going for walks in doing as a family walking their dog or whatever So with our puppy here. We've been taking her with us on things that we like to do. Like trail rides and stuff. We haven't I haven't dared to try riding my bike with her. Something like that yet but The first few days she was really really hyper We Pan for only a week now but I think that it's caught up to her the last couple of days. She'll get up in trying to play with us and she brings us toy I brought for her and she'll try to play with us. She just like will yawn and laid out. Those hyper is Other parents Foster parents said they were her. I think I think she found their match. So it'll be good for all of us and giving us something that we can You know I guess. Focus them attention on but the reason we got is because we did one adopts a rescue dog in give them your chance to know when the loving home and what better time than now where we can spend extra time with her we can get her acclimatized to a home and to us and train her a little bit so that she feels safe and understands what's going on and Yeah take her on. All these trail walks earlier retired. I also actually from what I've heard in different places like shelters instead for finding it hard because obviously they kind of have to minimize staff. Were depending on the rules of the Syrian stuff. Maybe they're not even technically essential service so they can't really operate so a lot of places have been concerned because there's all these animals now maybe like one or two people are taking care of them instead of say a whole group. But then I've also seen a story or two where shelters got like emptied out by people like adopting fostering the animals so you know most of the things revolving around this. There's been some interesting like good things in some like. Oh Shit stuff about like dino if the shelter you've been dealing with they've been doing pretty well during this or are they winter spirit of hope rescue and they don't have a location but their pets are all Sorry Oh my goodness. I can't believe I said that word. I never use that word look The animals are all in foster homes and until they get adopted but the lady that we were dealing with in adopting. Sarah had said that that was their record. They never found as many a Families for dogs within a month as they were the month that we Sarah and I I venture to make we're going to be homework. We thought the via great time on for everybody involved and she said that's what everybody is saying is that they're home now and they can do that but at the same time. I also know that that rescue as well as other rescues shelters are experiencing a decline donation. So they're trying to more donation drives and Of Money and food because they still need to be able to feed these animals and them their vaccines and everything else that they that these animals need. So or you know. In Our case with Sarah. Somebody relate to get fixed link great so I'm still grateful that these places exist And then in the human world of course then there's also when pay harvests and places like that the redistricting in the community. They've been eating more volunteers for that There's there's been a few places within our city that aren't getting the funds that they need right now. I'm just because of what's happening with the economy or there isn't as private donors right now Or their shutdowns. Those people aren't receivable services all x kitchens and things like that so I don't know if there's any open I know a few of close so it's kind of sad like it one way it's really good. There's all these dogs that are gain another animals there again adopted that need a loving home and then there's also the downside places aren't getting the resources they need to run or the ability to be open at all to provide their services to people in animals that need it is the Do you know like the veterinarian clinics are open in Winnipeg Easter. They're concerned central service in Thailand. Apparently they're not. Oh Wow yeah no. I haven't myself but I know that the Dog Grooming centers are considered essential. But they're not allowed to do this trims and stuff they have the wash the dog so people have to get like a full package I keep saying dog because now I have a pet. An animal companion the dog. You know for any animal that needs it so I know that there are a law services. There are still open for us. considered essential. So that's really good because please I thought that might not be open are still open Yes so I think it's probably because we stabilized here like amount above stipulated. I mean definitely. There's also like a cultural influence in terms of like about here in Vietnam. I wouldn't be surprised if the veterinarian places closed when when that first bit alike coverage happened about like the one dog in China who possibly had Covid nineteen it. Actually there some pretty like bad stories coming out of China Where people like were abandoning their animals or worse because they were thinking they were. GonNa get it from the Daniels here in Vietnam. I had friends who got kicked out of their apartment like within a day's notice his they were told. Okay you're dubs have like four or five dogs near like your dog staying. Kennels down in the basement Otherwise you need to leave. And they've been there for I think like at least a year or two and they're just like we're not putting our animals down in Kennels like twenty four seven and so they'll go okay you need to go. Your animals could have could have the virus like you know dirty animals. It's not worth the risk and everything So when my friends told me that in Thailand the vets reclosed I was like. Yeah I guess it makes sense. 'cause I'm unfortunately it's not like there's definitely a difference of opinion you know in terms of how animals entreated and everything I mean. I'm seeing ships and I love it and I don't WanNa like I don't want to give the main audience in the West feeding into that perception of agent and everything but like yeah I so that's why I kinda ask because I was wondering 'cause my friends told me in Thailand knows like Shit. What are people going to do like you know because I mean when I house sat there last time I had to like Russia cat to the vet? 'cause it got in a fight with a snake and so now. I'm like I WANNA showed up my brought. The cat was like snake bite and they knew because there's a fairly common. It's either like getting in fights with streak dogs or probably like something to do with snakes. Whatever so they're like all right cool and they like knew at the do scenario. Unlike wolves events closed what happens. I mean I don't know maybe there's like emergency like I feel like maybe some of the vets would open an emergency but I think like legally. They're not like just like the. I don't even know if there are like dog washing services here. Maybe they are. Someone is smart. They've opened one but I'm willing to bet they wouldn't be considered essential service so when you said you had a dog and everything I was like I need to ask because I'm wondering how but that's good because I mean obviously things happen and we know we're on the same page in thinking that you know the animals that have should have the same services in terms of their health and stuff so I I'm let me see. I think that was my last random question so I'm going to. I wanted to wait before I mentioned this but now I'm gonNA mention it. 'cause I keep noticing I've come to realize and I love it. It's happening the painting behind you is basically making it. Seem like you have horns. Gosh and it's amazing how I love it like depending when you? Kinda like when your head moves a little bit. I'm like I just noticed that. Like halfway through this like Oh man. She's got horns and I'm going to tell people that I've known you for a long. You're not the devil I I'm like maybe a mountain goat in terms of the in everything so people are not mad. I want them to know that. That's the takeaway. They should go with his like a mountain goat. Not so much a devil just just helping you out there. His letting everybody. I'm so on that note in terms of like activity in energy when When things do rent backup you're you're able to go and do whatever you want carefree like in the before times. What your first day going to involve I think is definitely going to evolve going to St friends and it's going buffalo hugging because I would of those people who liked to give hugs to people I like so I. I'm going to be really happy to be able to spend time in a room with a bunch of people like me. I'm thinking maybe have a people over and how supper together and games something like that or you know. Obviously Nice by them we can all do it die just as well but yeah just to have like a group of people together that having a while and hug them all when they arrive in just enjoy his company just to warn you. I mean. Everyone's probably going to be happy to see you but the puppy is going to be the main focus. You have to accept that now like there's a puppy in your life. That's yeah yeah it's true. Yes keep you guys posted users. I mean everyone's probably going to be cool with coming over to your house because you have the public. They're going to be like Oh cool. Yeah let's hang out and then three hours will involve the puppy G. He loves thing. Hello to people but because of what's going on everyone's kind of a exchanges are more skittish of each other than before which is I mean. Some people will just say hello and some people or another person. I could into offence. You're walking down the street. You don't know so my dog. She always wants to go. Say hello to everybody cat litter. Say Hello did anybody in. It just breaks my heart. I know she's just itching to interact and socialize to I. I never really paid attention to it when I lived there. I mean are their dog perks. Around where you are. Are there open yet. The doctor to open There are some off leash dog parks in thought around the city. Though THAT'S PRETTY COOL. I actually had no idea they existed until I started going for. Walks and things like that with my friend has adopt When my foot started game better after my surgery that was Kinda when things are supposed to do? Just GonNa go for walks a little bit longer as the months progressed. And though I just his my way to note with one of my friends that I hang out with and she has to walk her dog anyways next Rondo but all this dog parts before I even knew I was GonNa have At compact I am actually made a joke with someone else's talking with them while they they have cats but I was joking. How like having a dog could be like a business opportunity kids in some places right now. There are restrictions on the going out. Maybe like you have to limit your exercise or whatever but the dog walking is like an accepted. Yes you need to be able to do this so I actually had a story today about someone that was offering their dog for rent for like twenty five dollars or something so that people could go out and like us that so if they did get questioned like walking my dog so they basically renting the dog so they use excuse which isn't really the greatest thing do. The point is to like trying to limit. You're going outside not to find loopholes. So he can go outside. But it's like it's a human need because we're animals too but apparently like it's another one of those weird businesses that have popped up. His people are like hey you need an excuse to go out and so I don't know like people are planning you know being like Hey. I need a Dog. I need to meet up with my buddy and have a conversation like I need to go buy some toilet paper from a guy in the parking lot so like can I rank your dog for an hour and you know. I'm not sure it's a strange world. It's into there has been a law of unique business popped up. Yeah they've actually here in Vietnam. There's actually like legislation now to like heavily find. People that are found like hoarding or like overpricing like they have a certain list of like key products that are necessary right now and lactate. Kinda have like a set price. I think it might actually be under like the current market price or whatever and so I don't know like reported if you find places or like if they come across people online selling say toilet paper or the face masks for like three times the price tag actually end up like You know I'm losing the word Confiscating the products and then finding the people so I don't. I don't think I've read anything about that. In Canada I feel like maybe they did mention it. But I certainly haven't read any stories about like people being arrested or fined for it. Yeah I'm not sure they're out with US stuff to be honest when it comes all the fines I pay attention to but then I just Kinda don't remember so much. I know they don't apply to me because I'm not doing those things like I know. There are fines for people who are in large groups. Gatherings in are the by. I can't say yes or no. It's funny that Remembering now that like speaking of like you know. Sort of underground deals and stuff. It's fine either like Canada legalize marijuana so I mean I know there's still sort of the black market of it but it's interesting that now. The shift has gone to like household goods for like heading up like night meetings for whatever picking up for like random prices on a black market. It's an interesting world that we're currently living in And I guess just one last question since you told me your first day is going to be what. I'd say like a month or two from them like when you kind of shake off either rid of anxiety going outside or whatever. You're just totally comfortable with all the things you used to do. Are there any bigger plans that you can see us doing while? Maybe hopefully I mean the number one thing that POPs in my head Other than of course like just going outside and being around other people more frequently is my partner and I actually had a wedding on for this year and we still do. We don't know what's GonNa look like at this point with things are like when the time comes we. We had a social scheduled for June. Some not sure if that's happening anymore. Just as the way for us to like and joined the company of a lot of people that we are friends within groups with and work with that kind of thing and then I need to pause on that because I need you to explain what a social is because it's a very Winnipeg Manitoba thing and I haven't heard that we're in a long time since I left so before you continue. Please explain what is social as slow? A social is an event where it Kinda has started to change little bit over the years but when pick socials were the people who are trying to raise money for an event so those 'cause fundraiser or oddly enough for some reason whenever of leading have social so it'd be the bridegroom organized a social or their friends are. It's where you rent a hall get a DJ. You get a bunch of midnight. Snacks that you're going to serve at like eleven or twelve o'clock at night and you sell tickets for ten dollars. Each people come in. They can win prizes. They can win money. They just dance the whole night away. You feed them. You just enjoy each other's company and it's quite the event depending on the Group of people you have there so you can imagine if it's a bunch of twenty year old is GonNa be different than for us. I mean we're in her mid thirties Social GonNA look a lot different than the social. I went to midnight. No I mean I go to bed now at like nine. So do we know how this is? GonNa work so this is gonNA happen beforehand. You plan this and then that'll lead into the wedding which we will happen later this year. So that's planned for the fall so we'll see if the wedding I mean weddings going to happen and what we WANNA keep that day but what it looks like might change and the and maybe it should be more worried about that than I am but because there's so many the one reason not worried is because people are coming up with so many creative solutions so depending on what the can be like like maybe we can have a hundred people in a room by then maybe we can only have fifty or ten but the thing is that there are so many businesses offering services remotely now that we might have to change our idea of what we want to look like but it doesn't mean it can't happen so People who are rescheduling for next year. Because everyone's rescheduling. Now the rescheduling like two or three years away from now Some are going with micro weddings with is just the selves their partner. The parents sign a paper. And then they're going to celebrate with the whole family next year where they do the more formal thing or whatever and then there's also the option where like say we were saying like hey if the restriction the I keep looking at Partners on the other side the roof that if we can have fifty people in we'll have our fifty people but then we might also use Services where they'll come in and record the wedding and do a live stream so that everyone who can't be there can still watch the wedding as it happens So that's really cool. Is that there still opportunities for us to the celebration. That's really important to us On that note actually want to mention the returnable And clinics and things like that is that a lot of places are offering services online. That didn't before like even a lot of physicians are offering on the auction for you to call and talk to the physician on the phone instead of coming in and there's also more call tation counseling service is on the phone or online Physiotherapy all kinds of stuff that you can do online so that Now I'm starting we for the wedding stuff but you can you can late livestream your wedding Also there's other services that you can access online that being said you have to have a computer and Internet to do those things right but again. It's another creative solution that a lot of businesses are were important. Things healthcare is coming up with that. We can still access. Their services is not the same as going in person and having them readjusts by whatever you know and But at least I can be accountable with my exercises or or you know. Talk to my look and see what I need to do and you can still keep some semblance of those things as being before I. I think you should try and have the I like zoom social in all of Winnipeg think about it right now. Some of the world's top deejays are probably sitting around. They're not playing festivals. So there's a Lotta deejays that are available and you could just have them zoom in. And then you could like I mean you can definitely charge to give people the Access Code that the thing I mean they'd have to bring their own alcohol food but I mean there have been ninety. Dj parties like. That's been a thing. I just watched a will smith and DJ jazzy. Jeff do like I guess they did a live show on snapchat and he posted like a too. So that's not a bad idea. I do I. That would be fun to 'cause I some people are having like. This is our participation but I've heard people having like group skype drinking parties or so. It's like they're in the same room and and I mean beer wine or whatever together So people are coming up with creative ways to even touch her so want to so. That's really neat. In the Asocial party could play some music offer. We HAVE THE PRICES. We still have the prices whether or not the social happen. Though I don't know you can easily do the draw. Like that won't be still her the next day or something. Yeah I mean how you could sell the tickets to people. I'm not sure I mean I guess you could just if they like. Pay Pal you or whatever then you can just email them there little ticket numbers than you can figure it out so this goes for another while you should consider. I mean your cost to be a lot lower. It's true I pay deposits on everything already. Oh plus Oh the best benefit you wouldn't have to deal with that like I mean I guess maybe it's a little different hall 'cause like you have to kind of closed down a certain time but you wouldn't have to worry about like having the hanging around 'cause those few last people just won't go home you could just simply be like oh the Internet's not all it's getting I'm sorry. Click and then. Just go to bed. When you're tired you could just shut it all down. Oh Gosh it's funny yup later. The not o'clock still. I think would see if you. I haven't used them but I'm guessing if you like let the DJ the host and then you're just one of the many windows of guests then you just go to bed and maybe people wouldn't even notice. I'll take a nap and come back. Yeah and everyone else be like. Yeah and they'd right you the next spring. That was the greatest priority. I can't believe you were up till three in the morning. That was amazing. You'd be like Yeah Yeah. It was great I wanted to notice because he just one window in like a Brady Bunch scene of Windows. You can put like a little face there and just leave it. I think we've got a whole business. We could operate now. Just Winnipeg socials states singles. Another visit people are. The people are Goodie though creative during this time I think we actually have time to stop and think and I think that's part of one of the ways like you ask ask toy still have energy can be ause of stuff in You mean we still have to understand the reality of the situation what our role is and looking after a solves in our loved ones and obviously have to be careful. I don't WanNA bring anything to my mom who spent most of her likely isolated On's anyways are in five. Been somewhere than I don't go see her for a couple of weeks or whatever so me. We still have to be careful but at the same time. It doesn't mean that you have to have the rest of your life stop and you can use those few seconds that we have to think now will. We're not as busy with work and things that we might have been before To think of okay. What do we want to do? Moving forward for some people. Maybe that's changing careers for some people might be going back to school Might be starting a business might be doing creative project that they left on the side or hobbies are I know. We begin a lot house working. I work down. That makes us feel better. 'cause we're like wow we're being productive like much regain done regain self care done to like the Since we have time to do all that loon With thumb and there there are things too like if you locating the footage of the reduction pollution China or a wildlife returning to the canals in Italy watermills alien things like that. There are some really haase of things are happening on there like a friend and I were talking about how many people are working from home right now and held that is accepted right now and I love places encouraged. Which is really really good because I was still frowned upon where we live or is still until this happened it was still founded upon and there are people that we know she knows who or even for myself who have young kids or are looking after other people or sick and getting to work is either impossible or very very difficult where you need to take time off because you can't be at work but that doesn't mean you can't do stuff from home and again. I'm not saying that everyone should because there are times in your life where you need to take a break from the Stop with sometimes. You know apparently still be able to earn money or someone might have sick parents that they're looking after a neighbor's they're looking after but that they can't just quit their job. So we know some people who are institutions like or like myself when when my son was young but you finding a way to work from home Other than maybe weird thing do find the newspaper or You know like Network Container. Whatever being an actual employee of a place was very difficult to find an even if you're working somewhere instead like hey. I need to work from home because isn't working for me right now but I wanna keep working for you. They would just tonight And I know that there are exceptions to that for a large majority of people that was still the case where it would just get denied and now all of a sudden. It's okay to talk from whole though the friend. I was discussing where she mentioned that she ate like for her brand. Who's in a wheelchair getting ready for work? Taking transportation to work is so much longer and more difficult for her. Because of her circumstances it would be for Able bodied person and she's requested to work from home and was denied but now she works from home and she still gets her gets job to unwritten and they're okay with that so we're hoping that moving forward that people will be more lenient with exceptions and that this demonstrates that is possible as the case for everybody this possible for some people to work from home and still meet the expectations that their employer. What have of them. Yeah I think I mean there have been An said this with other people to that like there have been changes. That have happened that some people have been pushing for for years or decades and have been kind of like told now like and it was partially. Because you know they were a small group is like we're not gonNA we can't have that infrastructure or whatever it's not you know not worth as a company or something and now. I like hopefully because these steps have been made like online grocery store delivery or shifting to working from home for a lot of companies. Like my sister's working from home now It was a bit of a thing like I'm sure the. It team had some headaches to make it kinda possible but now they're doing it so hopefully out a lot. More people be able to do it than I mean. Especially for people like within communities with mobility issues and everything that hopefully will open up the ability to apply for jobs. Not simply be told. No no no no. That's too much of a problem. We can't do it because they can just be like. Hey we'll during that pandemic you did everybody so I think you do it and I'm great. Give me the job hopefully But yeah I mean ideally I guess you know it sounds like things are doing. Pretty good in Winnipeg I I have to admit I'm Kinda surprised 'cause I mean I guess you know like a lot in the media I was Kinda just tearing the sort of bad parts of what was going on in Canada And because of what the reality in here for the last few months like for my perspective it looked like things just kind of went to shit pretty quick in the West because it was like it sort of started in March and then like I said like this stuff happened in Newfoundland was like what. How do you have like one hundred and fifty cases from one place like 'cause that's like more than half of the cases we have here in the country like for the last three months but like it does seem like things are of getting figured out now on? I know after that sort of funeral thing in newfoundland like the cases of pretty pretty low But there's still definitely stressing things like you said like the state of emergency and stuff. I mean hopefully. Hopefully we'll start seeing you know actual honest talks of. How are we gonNA make this sort of the like progressive exit out? 'cause I mean obviously that's next big hurdle for pretty much the whole world and and in Canada like Manitoba. We have like there are other promises that are way worse than we are so I mean we are saying a really good place. Just continue to take the precautions. I mentioned in more. I'm sure forgotten to say but there is a way for us where I am to settle into what's happening because I think it's under control and there were a lot precautions taken so we are able to that you know someone from the states or maybe one of the promises that got hit really really hard like Quebec might maybe the I don't know what it would be like them in may be different reality than with now and I mean there are definitely some things that are a little bit more difficult here like the frustrations field trying to figure out the online stuff to help my son with his school. They did you know that stuff will change when school starts up again. I as much as some things moved online. Hope people still do more things than Ersan again like. I hope that we do back to Person 'cause we can't keep isolated. Humans are social beings though. Yeah like you said it. Just be really interesting to see how things progress when it all starts up again and I think of nothing else. At least our generation will end. Older will have a good view of what cat You know what it was before and the creativity ingenuity that people can come up with. And how technology can be beneficial to help us was curious if he would they would remember this stuff or how much of it would still be the same right. Maybe a different form you know like at least for us. I kind of feel like you know we learned about like the two big wars and like say the Cold War and everything but it wasn't like a part of our history I mean. Obviously there's some people still alive that dealt with those sorts of things but yeah it'll be interesting to see because I mean I know he's like relatively young now And his experience this point would be more of a like yeah. There's this period where like I couldn't see my friends Versus you know like I mean then again like we still have to deal with kind of like the economic fallout in the mental health. Follow from all this. We'll see we'll see what how I know. Canada's been actually getting some pretty big props for like the economic plans. They've been putting in place and everything so hopefully. All that stuff is still sort of a thing that baffles me in terms of the stock markets and unpredictability and stuff but hopefully the powers that be as much as I wouldn't mind seeing the capitalist system kind of fall Hopefully it's not the whole like warm holes that are. I think that's definitely been illustrated in many places We are I mean. Ideally things will be okay and you know it sounds like right now. At least your family's doing good which is fine and I'm happy to hear that you all feel safe in your son's doing good with it and the puppies worn out and he's not happy and I'm looking forward to seeing photos later. You'd I mean you have social media accounts you did require gaps. Put up on there okay. L. and that's something I didn't mention too is if people are looking for ideas of recipes. If you don't mind me given a Bug. They can check meal instagram at coach. Amount Lily L. I. L. Y. Are So many and I tend Stories images in the stories about Foods I'm making a lot of its using the that I showed in that video though if people are looking for ideas for inspiration. That's a lot I've gotten them in there and I guess they'll put up a picture of my puppy. Hey pitcher come on okay. Maybe one understand social media operates. I don't that's why pitchers of the puppy if the puppy moves. Take a photo. The puppy looks cute. Take a photo. The puppy doesn't look cute photos. Technically what you need to do is you're suppose. Start a whole other account for the puppy and then you slowly but surely become sad at the fact that the puppy gets more likes some follows. The everything you've been curated in creating. And then you're just like aw and then eventually you were riding the coattails of puppy and getting bookings different things you know. Ellen all one everything. She'll be warlike. I like to show hold things fit together so I also I can barely run one. Instagram account is okay. I'm just saying you know. Here's your chance. Socials and surrogate in instagram accounts. Two things I think you should consider but otherwise. I think I think you're doing it. Sounds like you got everything pretty much in control. And that's awesome and I am super happy that you took the time to share this little window of your world with everybody and I hope people get something out of it I will I will totally include some links in step in the description wherever the descriptions gonNA end up being The people can check a further. And if there's no puppy pitchers I will request that. Whoever watches this call you out on it and demand that you show the puppy And the next time you talk the next time we talk. I want to see the puppy as well. Collared Shirt. I do WANNA mention that. I have more time a really want to answer people's questions to help people have questions about Look I know I am someone who tends to put more of a positive spin on things And the reality of what's going on is obviously very serious but we have to keep ourselves healthy in body Mind Spirit. So went has questions about Things you and I've talked about or ideas foods and they want links to stem recipes. That use ingredients that can keep while the the freezer the covered or whatever. I do encourage people to send me a message. I'd be happy awesome. I'm still waiting to see. How many like quarantine cookbooks come out of this? 'cause I mean people are always going like? Yeah they're always doing like Vegan on a budget and everything right. But I WANNA see like the lockdown and like self-isolation like I mean you know obviously like salvation like making meals for one person because there's nobody else in this place with me like any those things and obviously making stuff now without flour because apparently that's also a rare thing is flower available in Winnipeg. Now are you having any issues? It was when I went out loss and I don't know if there's been issues around but it is something that gets put on the Front Porch. I'm guessing they probably do time-to-time because it's one of the main items on your grocery store so that means people are doing funding. I guess that that means people are doing more home. Baking stuff too. So don't maybe people are using their time to make more foods from scratch stock or or learn new recipes. And that's all great. Now's it's time to be creative in different ways whether it's the kitchen or something else All right I'm just GONNA I'd I already segue once or twice. I can't think of another clever one. So I'm I'M GONNA leave it at this and I'm just GonNa say thank you and once again. I'm just looking at you with horns and I think it's amazing. This is like I think this should be a parental voter for you for everything you do from now on with horns it's awesome. Thank you so much. I know we will talk again at some point but I probably won't make sat one. Public will just talk to friends. And ideally. Eventually I'll cross paths with you again in the real world will have some food planet. Yes share good. Okay good thank you I.

Oh man twenty five use of say twenty plus for sure yeah. Do you think i'm ready. No not a chance now. I know it's there. I've also got a milestone birthday up. That i've got to prepare for Which there's no chance. I would be stupid enough to go anywhere on that milestone birthday. Yeah right so. It's tough to plan that because can't do anything and i and cami had kicked it out of the park on my fortieth and fit and so i got a lot of things going and i got done and i feel like you're gonna stress about this. I know you are because you're already talking about it. And i feel like when you stress that stress kind of branches. Out and now madman ruben. Family aren't with you. Are they young on the other side on hoax. Okay okay well. I didn't know if they were gods and comeback quarantine and all right so i feel like it could be a tough couple of weeks for matt. What's going to happen is going to be really busy doing some planning. The match wife is amazing planner. And i think she's going to have a lot to do with this. I love it. So i wasn't gonna take it there but i kind of knew that that's where it was going to go but you are similar in this sense so you've got a milestone birthday. I missed the milestone birthday. Which has been well documented. We all need to talk about that. But i've got see again. We're in similar worlds here. Camby's birthdays coming up. You've got valentine's day now right around the corner. All his birthday is february. Second followed by valentine's day on february fourteenth. Although and i love her deeply one of the qualities that i love most about as it comes to birthdays dollar fine state always like whatever just whatever valentine's day especially bud lagaras would see it would be right now garl- oh yeah legal is going to be involved. There's no question. I'd like to say that. Hey we'll get a really nice takeout delivery dinner but we've been doing that for nine months whether it's good if you need some tips on hooking up with a tomahawk state and get that bad boy on the grill you just let me know while here if we do that riley and reese and i will enjoy it cami. Does it take so much. So we'll enjoy it. I don't know what she's gonna do. Great what a weekend. It was man. somewhat predictable. I know you're busy with a varying amount of games going on friday. I did the the leafs game. Own boy. don't even remember who the who the least they were. Edmonton friday solo. And then calgary. Of course on sunday and the reason that i'm forgetting who leaves a blade that entire game and i'll openly admit this. I maybe watched five minutes. That game. And i'm on the panel for heaven sake so just as we're set to do the games joep i get a okay start paying attention. Alert from a couple of sources specific. Deepak klein jack. Raw slavic and pierre lou law right so now i'm boston it all friday night own and trying to pay attention to leave boilers do panels and whatnot. But we had a real strong sense on friday that the deal was essentially done There was a bit of a heck up that needed to get cleaned up on on saturday and it did get cleaned up very quickly saturday morning. And then they consummated the trade. What was your initial reaction when you started to see some of the speculation as early as friday and then ultimately when the deal closed on saturday while i mean of course goes back some time so it in in both cases both line a and and water their felt like there was this inevitability to it that a deal was going to get was going to get made now whether they were traded for each other or for somebody else it seemed like they were gonna get traded. This year dubois situation of course came came to a head and you knew there was some immediacy to that or felt. There was going to be so i wasn't it didn't shock value that some trades have although there's less of that than there ever was but to see two players that are so young and so good get traded for each other is really quite shocking quite surprising and so Instantly of course you tried to go. Okay i do anyway okay. So line is going to columbus. Who is he gonna play with What's his house. He gonna fit into that style and the way towards coaches. and like. How's that going to happen. And where's the walking. Wait a minute winnipeg already had a really deep center ice position with With shy fleet. Staff knee and lowery. And now you put this machine in the middle of it while somebody's going to the wing who's going to the wing one in the lines going to be like. Oh yeah by the way. They can't even have them for weeks. Or whatever the quarantine is going to be yeah. There was lots of that stuff. But i got a question for you. So you're in there and you get your heads up that from wherever that. Hey something's going now you chase a lot of dead ends like there's that you go. It looks like it's happening. Stop so when. Do you really get excited about something. And how do you chase it that you don't let your enthusiasm dragged to a place that the news guy has to be. Yeah well number one. You have to trust your sources than in a deal of this magnitude the sources come from all corners right to some degree It can be agents and knock. The primary guy is always involved here. Can all the agents involved have their own people their own stop so he can come in that way. Income from management teams clearly will winnipeg columbus player sources directly. I mean we've got spies all over the place and by we you know. I think that's and this isn't me. Wave the tsn flag entirely. But it kind is so. We've got a group jot and it's myself bobby crews semi-retired but still likes to engage on occasion. Frank serve And pierre lebrun so on. Friday as soon as i start getting a sense that look this could happen could happen very quickly. I mean you you send the sol. So to our group and we divide and conquer. Pretty well you know. There's not a lot of stepping on toes in. I establish okay. I've got this guy. This guy this guy you know you guys just blanket your coverage let's Let's see where last but the triggers and the you're just the obvious markers were there right. I mean dating back to the uae asking for trade and then you add towards going on radio and basically challenging the kid to come clean with wi- wants out of columbus. I know papper saw well. I know that that wouldn't have sat. Well with ca but they handled things very professionally. And then the obvious fokkers where you know pure to wad doesn't have a very good game. He's benched subsequently because of his play as towards clarified after the fact rate the five games prior where he didn't like the effort that he was getting from walk. That's when it really kicked into to a five alarm fire because at that stage. You know the cake landon. He's got one of two choices either. Works with what he has which was a lot and we're going to talk about what wrong canadians here. In just a moment but twenty plus teams were interested. In pierre luke dubois still yermolai deals with. This gets rid of the distraction or a has to consider firing coach. John tortorella and that is there is there. Is there not one other possible solution would have been what j. feast or did way back in the day with vinny lacob away and and torts and he said called him into a meeting and he said the torts i'm not firing you and he said the vinnie and i'm not trading you so figure it out beggar that would have been a you know maybe that wasn't even possible but i'm curious she didn't like you didn't really answer this like a fair like are you. Are you excited or you just got your work boots on. I mean the end rheinland flows. Especially when you know you've got it absolutely nailed and truth be told again i. I knew what the primary elements were on friday about because they had to work something out saturday morning. It delays what you hope is the inevitable. And then that's where the sleeplessness comes in. Because you're like okay. I mean i speculated on twitter. I went on sportscenter friday night and essentially laid the deal out. Without saying it's done. I just said here. The primary pieces knowing full well that it would have taken something pretty significant to pull this thing off the track on on saturday morning. So yeah it's it's it's exciting you to to break. A trade is is fun because lots of times especially a trade deadline. And you've lived through these things where we have pieces of a deal so we might be in a new say here. Luke was about to be traded to the winnipeg jets. Papper line going the other way but then all of a sudden you learn a half hour later. The we'll yeah. We'll jack russell is part of it and you know there's there's a third round draft pick in by the way the jets also a retaining six percent of lyonnaise. So but in the moment you don't even care about the details and you just want a fire out you know because of the stage that ron with the trade deadline so to get this one. So cleanly is a rarity. And it's not something i take lightly but it does take a lot of work. There's no question did you. Do you remember your first. Big scoop. And i was terrified. Sleepless side man. You're ready. It was joe. Forton to the san jose sharks. And i'll tell ya an god. Rest his soul. John ferguson senior was the guy who actually confirmed it for me and that was pre twitter. I mean you got something like this so you know. He answers his phone. And i got to know john a little bit through winnipeg days and whatever else and i said. Hey i'm here rumblings of this trade. He goes yup. Yup good deal just got a dining. Marcos terms are going to be a player all this stuff wayne. Premo was part of that trade right and we went through it all and i had my old blackberry at the time. And i'm like because there's no twitter no social media Unlike hammering out to paragraph brief which that the time owes its net you send it to desk posted rate. That story got posted. And i was so rattled because neither the bruins nor the sharks affirmed it for hours. And i'm watching tv and there's a tsn game. Bob mckenzie's the godfather. And he's just referring to my report not naming him. But just as there's a report out there that joe thornton traded in working on confirming and i was sideways. I was in the fetal position on the couch. Because like oh my god what if i'm wrong what if i'm wrong from wrong and then either or san. Jose confirms way we went so well dipping your tolan you might as well jump in deep right just more trade story we move along here but So and speaking of bobby back berta longo got traded to florida. Now think of this. Okay mike keenan is the general manager of of the florida. Panthers a real good old buddy of mine and was then dave. Notice the general manager of the vancouver canucks. Right what again. I feel like. I've got this thing buttoned down because i knew was happening. I just was told. You can't report it until i give you the green light in friggin. Bob is like hiding in a potted plant in the lobby of a hotel somewhere and he runs into either keenan. I think it was keen. And i don't know if it was known us but bikes is stock Just yeah we just acquired. Burn awhile ago. It's going to be absolutely pulls it rate from under minos so that one was was the biggest lewanda trade florida vallon left a mark. Bobby was more of a flesh wound. But they're so anyway. It was a good day. And we'll talk to pierre luke laws. Well obviously talking about how he's going to transition from columbus to winnipeg. I wanna talk about the haves actually trying to lump three canadian teams into the headlines. Before we move on here. Montreal was pretty deep in on youtube. Op and this would have been a tough one for bart Right he's got so much great chemistry there you wash from first candid the series against the vancouver canucks. It sounds like your cake. Elena was stock on next zouqi. That was the piece that needed to come out of montreal and it also sounds like montreal was willing to to talk about kotkin the emmy maybe call coffee potentially and jahmil knew what he was getting from. Winnipeg in in jack russell that can patrick lining So we'll do you think that this fits into that discussion. Sometimes the best deals are the deals that you don't make if you're version and the montreal canadians with all due respect to wall. Who's a terrific center. Yes i mean everybody's got to have a line that they draw across their prospects page and says i'm not going pass this line. Anything on top of the line or move any one of these guys in some combination. But there's a line that i'm not touching and so i can see why they would have maybe preferred suzuki past kotkin yemi only and it appears like suzuki is more polished right now. I still think he's going to be a hell of a player new too but this deal because of what else was sitting there. Which of course was the winnipeg component. Didn't have to be about hope right. And so berge man is not gonna make that move and rip apart his prospect pool and and touch suzuki to. Yeah so he's not going to do it and so for cake align and he's like look i he feels caught. Cam is going to be a good player to yet. There's still some you know there's still some road to travel there. He doesn't have to make that deal. So i'm not surprised. Montreal was in deep to look at it and then said hey look i. We like the way our team is constructed. Because i gotta say this. I think there there's not perfectly constructed right but that team addressed everything that they need to address and we've seen teams have to go into their taxi squad and it's a young guy. A question. mark montreal goes in and they wheel out gory. Perry and if they need another guy. It's going to be michael League yeah they've positioned themselves. I think they understood this taxi squad really well and found to veteran players that could stomach being in and out a little bit but knowing that by the end of this they're going to have a big part in it and you know what i also like about that and again i'll give some credit and it starts berge is being honest and upfront with those guys for a leak and corey perry and saying look. You're going to have a role on our team with like the with the veteran presence and the youth but because of the mechanics of what has to happen. You know we want you to be more or less full time players but you are going to spend some time on the taxi squad and they get to the taxi squad. We're gonna have to put you on waivers. Then you allow the player do not rate to to make an informed decision right. Yeah we want to come to montreal and we understand again everything that has to go into this year being honest with us. Okay we get claimed off waivers by another team than soviet but you are honest with us in and it's worth the gamble. Let's that has to be all those guys looked for sure. It did but just think of that twenty four hours when they're on waivers like you could be anywhere like what if you. What if you get claimed by a team that is totally rebuilding the go geno. What at seven hundred. Fifty grand corey. Perry can really help our team and help our young guys. And you gotta go or you retire like jason said he was going to retire. So yeah the Being up front. The only way to be and i will say from my experience. That's not always the way it goes right. Okay before we wrap up headlines and man. We've got a good episode. We've got curse. Abbott coming up here looked walk coming up things. Getting restless in vancouver feels like it'll yeah de was a bad week were schools against average in the league at over four point four per game They gave up eleven high danger. Chances a game against montreal this past week top. I mean they got. They got shredded Their best players were elias. Patterson and quinn hughes have had really rough starts to the season pederson worse than hughes Their goaltending is adequate. Really miss jacob marks room. He bailed out a lot of that mess their their defenses spin and when they get a couple of injuries or an injury a nick up then then they're in trouble and without their top guys playing very well the really thin upfront now. Pederson has just shifted agents over to see a and i'm just from my own experience. I hated my contract year. I hated the uncertainty of it. I hated the you know. Each gold feels more important. Because that's gonna put me in a different class. And then if he's dealing with changing agents at the same time you gotta understand. It's not just calling a guy up and say yeah we're done and you have a personal relationship it's hard. It's really hard to do it. So a lot of things. Probably bubble up there but at the end of the day pederson is not playing very well and if he doesn't play very well vancouver screwed the one thing to keep an eye on here as it starting to get as you call at restless than that water. The see is angry my friend. It's an old seinfeld. Is jim benning. Might be in top spot. I don't know how we going to improve the team like a lot of teams that just don't have any cap space in the reason that they're in a difficulty spot cap space. Wise is the free agency deals. They've signed that he has signed have put them in this spot Louis legislature wrote it down here. So i wouldn't forget there's loui eriksson. Jay beagle antoine roussel. And even tyler myers. Those are all big money contracts. And you're not getting a lot back. Like myers is best edible. Seventeen minutes a game. You're asking them to play twenty four. It's too much for and so they're they're in a tough spot. Got a coach in the last year of his contract. You've got your two star players in the last year of their contract and they're young they're twenty two years old so it's a it's a dangerous time because if you fall too far back here it's going to be tough to make it up washington. Well we're spending a lot of time paying close attention what's going on in the north division and we're going to have to refocus here a little bit. I'm challenged by it to be fair because of everything going on with the seven canadian teams. I'm slipping when i look around the league. Oh yeah there are twenty four other teams. I've forgotten what all you know what. I watched chicago and detroit yesterday in the morning here. It's nine thirty in the morning. I flicked it on. Wait for the football. And i'm like look at that the couple of other teams like i'm with you man. It's like and so i think that's one of the reasons why this division can't stay right that you you lose the global. Look the people in the states will never see connor mcdavid. Yeah but you know. They won't see austin matthews and so that's probably in my mind anyway one of the reasons that it can't work but a long-term but while i think it's a seventeen league right now yeah. It feels outweigh curse outstanding by plus our interview with pierre. Luke dubois is brought to you by our friends at cool bed dot. Co checkout cool beds free nhl prediction pool contest for a shot at some unbelievable prizes. You have to be nineteen years of age or older in cool that reminds you stay cool. Always that responsible all right. The newest member of the winnipeg jets looked wa is joining us from quarantine in winnipeg now. We know that the canadian teams have requested an exemption so fourteen days turns into saudis with four consecutive negative test. For your waiting word on that Let's assume that the canadian government doesn't change things. What is your plan for the next fourteen days in a hotel room in winnipeg. yeah Well the dean was nice enough. I'm right now. I'm in a house. So i got a little more space on. Got two dogs so it would have been a long two weeks in a hotel room with them Genes that are gonna come off a bike up foam rollers band stuff like that so i can at least You know move around and and You know maybe during the games. I'll i'll follow line Every time there on the do sprints but a while a lot of video set hello video on a lot of time to watch the games on your catch up on meetings that i that i've missed Billion i'm really excited for the two weeks ending community to be able to actually join the team are you. Are you a reader. You jared you watch you watch shows like man. You can only watch so much hockey. Yeah exactly i. They have this app. That i that they have. All the games already watched Three games the past two days so yeah I i watched show. I like to read No my parents are here so they can come drop off stuff outside You know nike. Just pick them up. So i'm not quite sure i haven't planned out the next ten days or the next days but a out pretty soon. So bear luke. This this trade could have been anywhere right. It ends up being winnipeg and your parents are there too so when you get the word and you call them and say. I traded an upcoming there. What's what's their reaction. Yeah well the night before the trade I heard was something's happening In any kept hearing the same couple teams. You hear winnipeg's one of them. My parents from my mom right away. My my dad he. He's in the hockey world so he knows you know that there's a lot going on to it doesn't bother me too much where my mom right away tells the truth. I actually come here and and it was mom. I don't know like let's. Let's wait till the morning and let's say for an official call and then when you know officially happened I got a call from from From my agent from the team in the nicola mom. I think like you guys know us. You're pretty happy She's still. She's glad my dad had to calm down because she can't see me for two weeks she was which is very happy when i saw her outside the first when she dropped off Stuff from you to be able to eat in the morning when when this was playing out did you. Did you get kinda twisted down the road. Oh i think it might be team. It might be that team like or were you. are you able to just. It'll be what it'll be. Yeah i think that the goal is to to just go out there and not concentrate on any of that You know it wasn't in my control But you know how it is. You you hear rumors you hear these things and it's it's it's hard not to at least think about it a bit and nc yourself and different situations and But i try my best to just let it go and like i said none of this. Whatever happened was in my control. So and i knew that knows no issue for me. So that's what i tried to do. No sometimes it gets a little complicated now. I got traded a couple of times and you know nobody was still concerned about it when i got traded. I just got a phone call. That went to the new place. Everybody in the league is talking about the potential for a deal as the way the last week may be more publicly than anyone wanted played out what had like knowing that. Everybody's like literally everyone in the hockey world wondering where your situation's going to billy playing. Yeah it was. It was a really crazy hectic past week or so The team and i talked during the negotiations. Then it got to a point where we really sat down with each other in and talk more about You know what their intentions. What mine were we we try. We wanted to keep it. S possible and then as got on and on I think more people are finding out than the catholic the bag and then it's it's okay. This is a public thing. Now and you really kinda the same thing with the rumors. Try not to think about that too much. You try just to go out there and play on. Obviously it's it's not the easiest thing in the world but our job is as hockey players to play hockey And none of none of anything that was going to happen. It's going to be my control By you know the it was all in in columbus. His hands and You know once the trade happened than just like a five hundred pound weight off your shoulders. You just get to go play hockey in and you know there's no more no more of of everything from before. Yeah from a timing perspective. I mean you. In your age. Papper song would have had multiple conversations prior to the start of the season right. It's not you woke up one morning. You know in the off season. Instead of i feel like i need to ask for trade but you asked for trade and then you negotiate your your bridge contract extension and then it gets to this point any regret in maybe thinking you could over should have pushed harder for the trade so that all this stuff gets dealt before the start of the season i mean like you said it mean pat talked about. It is something that was in my mind for a long time. It wasn't just one morning. I wake up and it's okay this song i wanna do. I think i think like every guy ca- drafted to columbus. I was planning an exit. You know i was planning for for this again. Be we're going to play for us. My career maybe And then as things went down you know you start to realize different. You know to different things and We know relied columbus With going too much into veto we like columbus. No co couple weeks month or something like that before camp and then like you said we. We negotiate with them. We talked to them in a. We didn't wanna make it hard on the team. We didn't wanna make it a to restraining on on the team you know they. They asked us if the two year deal with something we can do to to help them. A bit and annual was something. That like i said i i. It wasn't me saying that. And then give me out of here as soon as possible. It was it was look. This intentions intentions are You know i'm going to play. And they said they wanted me to sign. No sign the deal. I didn't wanna make a to know harder. Even harder on them on. And then like i said we have. We had a plan the team and i than got a little bit more public than than we thought it would. But that's just part of the business. I'm bonnie how that works. did Did did that make it as soon as it got public. Does that make it like okay. This this is gonna end like this is going to happen quicker than i thought that it make. It did make playing harder because it's all out in the open. Like i said i don't want to go too much into the it's all we're not we're not gonna ask you to dig it networks and all that stuff but it's definitely i mean when when when i asked for the for the trade like i said we had our plan in place and then what happened. What ended up happening wasn't the plan. Necessarily we know that there is going to be rumblings but lose is not just you know. I'm not the only guy in the nhl history that's for trade so we knew that you know it was gonna be. There's gonna be some talk but we could. We could just go about our business in the season goes on. I saw signed a two year deal and then know comes out even more publicly and then after that it's definitely was a little more hard. It was a little more complicated to just concentrating. Go play on you know when when you come to the rankin. You know something's changed. You know in some a lot of stuff change and Opinions of changed. It's a little hard. But like i said you have to be strong in. You have to just concentrate on unplanned. Your game in blamed the best you can now. Are you the type of guy that'll follow patrick. Lining i know when i got traded i followed the guy i got traded. Four and i wanted to know how he was all the time. And after a while you don't care anymore but are you that type of guy or like notice. Yeah probably maybe a little bit and i think the hardest part if didn't wanna follow him was would be you know everybody in the world you know. Make me follow him. You know vice ache. But i hope nothing best for him in columbus. I mean i. I met amazing people. They're amazing relationships with with the staff on the trainers in the equipment guys and and then the players especially and i hope nothing but the best for him in the team and jack ross switch. Do i hope that you know it goes while there and we completed in the finals every year and whenever every year of course but but but yeah i mean. It's it's something that stuff that happens inaugural you said you hated playing against winnipeg one of the teams. You hated to play against a now. You're going to be one of those guys. what did you hate. And what are you looking forward to. I hated the fact that they're so they're so big and fast and strong and skilled I think that as as a team it's important to be able to play. Every you know you can play every kind of game. If it's a skill game you can play it. If it's a physical game you can play it on. If it's fast uptempo you're good to go. And i think the jets are team that you know they cover every every style of play. And that's what. I found annoying to play against him. And then talk about you talking off with one of the best goals in the nhl. So it's really a a recipe success in to be able to join team like that To be able to come play with players. Like nick dealers and mark shoddily blake wheeler cow. Connor ah lowery cobb. I mean the list goes on and on to me and moore's young and i it's just. It's a really exciting time. I watched the game a against edmonson. Like i said i watched two other games also on the hopefully by the tons over on all the tendencies. But it's a. It's a really fun team to be joining Relation around the nhl. We see senator paul. Marie sees you as a stenner. I mean talk book. A one two punch of you've got march idly and pure luke dewa but he also paul stashes a veteran centerman. Lowery's they're very good. Nhl centerman as ball given you a clear indication that when you're healthy and you're in the jets line up the year in the two hole or i mean might be fun. Playing on the wing for a bet was sharply and wheeler as well no. We had a quick conversation when i got traded. That that that Off it in perfectly in the lineup have a lot of death like you just said you know it can be a. i mean. that's the thing i can play wing compla- left i can play right. I could play center on. That's one of the things that that that i've been i want. I wanted to become a and i think it's easier for coach when you have guys that can play every position but You know if. I'm playing with with sharply if i'm playing with connor mueller's in the middle of playing with connor. And i mean. I don't think there's really a bad line about us situation from there so wherever i have to no problem for me. Your your father's one of the coaches with the manitoba booths and mislabeled play all three forward positions What did you. What were you able to draw side from your dad but as hockey coach from from your dad i mean he he as a kid i remember when i was like eight years old any video for his teams in instead of watching a movie or watching. Tv i'd go watch video with him and you know he. He was video but once asked me a question just like where do you think this guy should have been in. You know where you think. This should have been and stuff like that. And he's always taught me. That scoring goals in assists are fun. But you know a lot of the details of the game is what makes you win or not and and you know as you grow up you know everybody wants to score But positioning stick positioning of where you support your report. Your wingers as as as exciting. But you know that could be the difference between law so. I've been trying to do that as my career is gone on. I'm still learning a lot. And hopefully i can learn from the center in the code and the centers in the coaches here. But i think that that's what he taught me. the most is just. The details of the gamer are just as important edge. You ever worn number thirteen before. See you're gonna you're gonna wear thirteen. You know they used to be a guy. There that were that did pretty well. Timo salonen is that. Is that a number you like or had wanted eighteen because my dad words in. That's the number of my career and then bryan little has it so then my second option was number eleven and they thompson has it. And then my third option lady one and connor has it down to okay who roof from my life who friends that have worn a number and the number like an you know one of my childhood best friends growing up at number thirteen on one year so a sucking him about it and he's one of the first guys attacks got trade and he said well number unit take. I looked at all the roster. And they're all taking the ones you want. I kind of like a poll with my friends and Was the number that that came up. I'd even think of of this lonnie one but Yeah yeah. I didn't think aloud could've issues. Are we getting to know your teammates. I mean it can't be easy again. We started the conversation. Talk about what you're going to be doing in quarantine i'm assuming there's a lot of zoom chats with Sharply wheeler with the leadership group in coaching staff. Yeah yeah a couple of guys already reached out on. Got traded texts texted him back. And then i can't see them because i to be in quarantine and i gotta i gotta test but Yes saying contactor. As much as i can with them. They said they're going to film every meeting. So i can be a part of the meetings on zoom not the same as in person but trying to stay as as to date as possible so when the two weeks ends there is not a an even bigger appeared of adaptation. It's just like jump into it and like Like i've been there the whole time. All right buddy Look we wish you the best of luck. We know that you're going to be a great. Add to the winnipeg jets. You're cleared to do. So here's hoping sooner rather than later and we appreciate you taking the time to join us. We know that you are jammed up and happened since Since the news broke that you're now a member of the winnipeg jets so thanks for doing this ups l. Look will you know working for working in a canadian market for as long as you have. You know it's it's demanding. Place to be for an nhl blur let alone a star in a player like beer. Looped walk in his new surroundings in winnipeg but man what a gauging young man. And i you know i. I met him prior to his draft in you. Kind of got. That sense of bubbly personality very articulate well-spoken but he's gonna fit in nicely. I mean the winnipeg jets. We talked earlier in the pod. It paid a price for payroll wa. They gave up a potential superstar. In patrick lining. Where would you position him in lineup. If you're palmer racing you give them the number to all and just work around it or would you throw them up there with the big boys on the top line and steal that works on the way. My initial thought is that i would play him with shy flee and wheeler and the reason i would is because i don't think paul stassen suited for the wing off a standstill. I don't think staff. And he's quick enough. I think he's better in the middle of the ice. And if you had doi- wheeler and sharply. Then you have connor staff and healers. Then i i love coffee and lowery together. I would hate playing against those two guys. Like i would hate it and then you have somebody like matthew. Parole or mason appleton in top. Nine would be as good as anybody in in canada that that top nine group and so i think that's where i would start him knowing that he's my number two center right and if it didn't quite work then jockey some people around but i man i think a lot of dubois i think line as going to score forty goals every year and i think he's going to have a fifty goal year or two or three but i know why we know why when a pig made the deal we know columbus made the deal. And i think it's very possible. The bowl teams are going to get exactly what they want so we often look at these young. Nhl stars as property as assets. That's what they are. Just throw him in the lineup. Let's hope it work so entertaining the fans everybody's happy you'll make millions millions of dollars As as we're talking to pure luke you know. And he's talking about his mum waiting up in winnipeg and you can just imagine what that's like. I mean you've lived through land. And what odd. And people didn't realize that eric do why is it. Assistant coach with the manitoba moose and has been for a long while but you know this makes it a little extra special dozen you know. He's not just a commodity that have big jets paid a high price to acquire. It comes in. He's to have to be a very impactful influential just player for the team to have success. But there's a there's a human story to this. That's kind of neat as well. I mean i can't even imagine it as the road twist general any teams are interested and then ten teams are interested in there would be a point as a parent you go from hope to. Oh boy i think this really could be and then to have your son traded to where you live like. That doesn't happen except just did and sold for the dubois. It could not turn out any better. Can you imagine how excited is his mama's like you gotta remember. He's thirty two. he's twenty two. Yeah right so. This is This that was a really cool part of the story. Ask grading eggs. Anything promoted a question that got me thinking in developing my throat punch candidate for this week. Great and i believe that the name was dylan wondering about the fake crowd noise you know inside the nhl railings. Dylan believes that it's gotten to be annoying. I don't mind it so much from a culture perspective. I don't really. I mean i'm not in the building. It doesn't really matter. I know it's fake but it doesn't really take away from the watching experience for me now. Last wednesday and doing nbc game toronto and edmonton and first time by the way in alive arena and it was a surreal experience. Isn't it weird spooky lag. Everything from the poor ticket guy. When i went to to to park by truck there's no vehicles in the parking lot rape beside scotiabank which is always jammed up right and body. I say how much he goes. I don't know what do you want to pay me like really out things that badly because yeah i don't there's nobody here they just park if you want. Now what do i. You gotta give me twenty bucks. So i felt like i gave me thirty. Normally it's probably thirty in a in a healthy environment toronto. Suddenly this is. This is bizarre. Get through security. Which was a breeze. Go up to one elevator. Takes you up to three hundred level. Which is where. I had to stay in. It's me it's shawn. Mckenzie from sportscenter and chris johnson from sports center ice in the three hundred level socially distance in this kind of camera bay area. And that's where. I had to stay for the hockey game which was great. So i do a pre-game hit into nbc's pre-game couldn't hear liam mchugh the host at all because the music was so damn loud tara warm-up that nobody's there for outside of the players like i was like this i comes in a war zone somewhere report. From what like. I was so pissed off because i'm like wait a second. I mean yeah. I understand that it's an nhl regular season game maybe the players get pumped from the warm up music. I don't know but it's for tv. I mean the team protests. So i wonder i i. Yeah at the world juniors man. You can't even you couldn't even think like at times like it's so loud and my thought was. I wonder if it's like that because they need that volume for television. They sure don't need it for the rink. If you know once the play starts it's like being at a minor hockey game of two guys sticks. Hit each other. You hear that sound. Yeah like it's so weird. But the i work at sports as you know and so i was asking them about how they do that because the nhl got all the sounds from the ea game and there's basically a computer board and it was described to me. The operator plays like a piano. Ed they have to know each sound corresponds to an event on the ice until they're just playing like this playing the music or playing. The sounds cheers the groans that sound after a hit all that stuff and he said so. The operators are super important. However i don't know who's working the volume. But i think that turn and everything to eleven dylan gets the assist on the throat punch for this week in episodes right chris abbott cool bet dot co joining us on the ranger eggs. Podcast and frankly it's become one of our if not our most popular segments week-to-week here episode seven before we get talking about ufc fight and obviously the afc nfc championship. The upsets all of the storylines from quebec dots was perspective. I tweeted at chris on twitter short while ago before recording. This and i don't know if you caught it. Rabi always tease me about the amount of meat that is consumed in the drager household. Whether it's western canadian thing doesn't matter. I don't know if there's any vegetables there there's a lot of there was actually a vegetable in in the nfc. If the chinese ship sunday football extravaganza so my son put me onto these things. We ordered had preordered a couple of raptor eggs now. Raptor eggs are a stuffed jalapeno. So there's your vegetable. I'm assuming it's it's like cream cheese or something in the middle of this thing wrapped in ground pork then wrapped in bacon. So it's about that big probably about a pound each holly gregor. Maybe she may have had a bite to. Would you guys believe ice scarf back one and three quarter raptor eggs watching football yesterday. How long does that take the eat one of that. Um i mean it took some time i i. I've had meat sweats a couple of times. Tomahawk steak few weeks back The meat sweats after the ribs lottery. Ribs for family of four needs. Let's there and i here's my only question. You can answer this from your perspective to. I like to know what's in the food that i'm eating. The you said there's cream cheese or something in there like you've got no idea. Why don't you want to know what the hell you're eating. I know not in this case. They didn't chris. Do you want to know what you're eating normally normally and it's funny. I'm a little bit picky when it comes to stuff usually meet. I'm good to go. You know what's really funny about all this as you're describing when you're describing the the whole larry darren my first thought was. I wonder what kind of saw she could dip that it was the first thing. Okay full disclosure after the first raptor. Ag- again about that. Big probably a pound. I'm like Barbecue sauce get this thing going so went and got a jug barbecues. That's me. i'm a huge condiment guy right so anytime i have something like that and i love the you know the jalapeno. You're i mean you're obviously getting your green leafy vegetables out of that of course And then you know. The cheese got to have some sort of cheese in there somewhere and barbecue sauce on their sounds pretty good. Yeah when you tweeted raptor egg. I was like i. I've never heard of this. But now i'm intrigued and i might have to hit up for the recipe pre-ordered go to your local butcher. They'll figure it out after something along those lines. We've got a ton to get to here and obviously we want to talk about The bucks in the chiefs in the super bowl ravers mahomes What went on in the afc nfc but first let's get to the u. of c. Type tilt am. I one of the few guys. That wasn't smart enough to put a little bit of cash or a lot of cash on dustin. play over con- mcgregor well. It's really interesting. Especially when it comes to conor mcgregor because people who don't watch ufc watch conor mcgregor fights. Like i'm sure. I haven't seen the numbers yet but i'm sure the pay per view buys for this card our foreign above anything else. Even frank leaders better fighters on the car. He's just that name brandon and he's been phenomenal for dana white. The usc so when people tune in and if they're gonna they're gonna bet on him and maybe not even think about how much other lane i think. He closed at around minus three fifty which translates to. You've got about three hundred and fifty dollars to win one hundred or you know some sort of ratio of that. Not everyone's better than that that amount so at some point the math tells you you're better off putting your money on the underdog us imported it was paying out plus two seventy five. Which is where. I got him. So one hundred dollars gives you a two hundred. Seventy five dollar profit died in one hundred on either. But i did have a little bit doubt and you know it was. It was exciting. And you know a lot of times what you see when guys especially in. Ufc cards are big favorites. Like that dan hooker was And he lost in the coleman you get people making parlay tickets rather than single bets and if you if you lose one leg of your legs done like i saw something that came in not at our site somebody had bet. The green bay packers Which turned out to be a moot point. Anyway parlayed with conor mcgregor to win at an insane sum of money. I ended up. Losing both of those bets sounds like something i do but Yeah it was. It certainly moves the needle and It was a huge day for us equity and so when when he when he goes down. Does that do. Do you find people that that win. Do they wanna do they wanna re the next one or is it just a one event. The money take them. Do they take the money and run or do they take it. Leave it and stay in. Generally people will leave Elite released a little bit in their yankee playing. Yeah because want the action right. They want ads. And you're and you're playing with house money then to right. So i'm sure people who won on that site than you know played the nfl yesterday or played The nhl yesterday. And if they grade and they didn't well let's two days full of entertainment. You know for for whatever price they wanted to pay so yeah we do see that a lot. Now some people you know you get your guys who are purchased quasi professional and they command. They make the bet they get their money. They get out. That's how they that's how they make money. It's their business model. But most people are recreational better. So unless it's a huge windfall you'll you'll leave it in and see if you can build off it. It's k- rates like if you're sitting at a blackjack table and i know you've you've done. This told the story before about about your exploits at the blackjack table you know. If you get up you're not leaving your money. I've seen ray a blackjack table a couple of times. Yeah because i had gossiped left. I had added by pockets. Man all right go to the football drake's yeah for sure. I mean. We talked about this kristen in episode six. I mean you had the. Tom brady factor. Officiating certainly went the way of tampa bay in this little aaron rodgers in the green bay. Packers do you wanna dissect the afc nfc individually or just leap forward to the super bowl. And now you've got the bucks in the chiefs and all that latino lift stock with the afc nfc. I because we'll avenue on an episode eight. We can preview the super bowl but did did these games go down the way you expect that they would go out For me personally it was actually opposite. I thought green bay was gonna walk away. I think we learned yesterday. That tampa tampa's defense is legit and tom brady is is the best to ever do it. I mean he he was especially in the first half he was shooting the lights out there. And then you know. There are some coaching questionable. Coaching on green bay side before gold aaron rodgers. You're going to feel two minutes left and expect to get the ball back. Probably matt lafleur with like a do over there So yeah it's interesting. I thought cremated win that game. I knew it would be close But we saw you know in terms of our our site. We saw a lot of people coming in on tampa bay other. It was one of these games. It was really interesting because normally the public perception is is heavily skewed one way or the other and is kind of toss up in terms of what people thought and then with the afc. I think a lot of people thought that kfc would roll. Kfc thinking you got me thinking you've got me thinking about meet. Its lunch. i everyone thought. The city would role in that game but you know living in southern ontario and and being so close to buffalo at a lot of canadians like the bills. We saw action on the bill so that actually work for us. We needed that. She used to win from a profit perspective and that and they didn't which was great. So i thought that chiefs we're gonna win. I'm really looking for do super bowl. I thought green bay was gonna win but you know coaching and an outstanding performance from the bucks something in the end i got to say i'm not an mba guy. So i don't really know if this comment is going to exclude somebody that i shouldn't. There's no more exciting athlete to watch than patrick. Mahomes right now i. I'm just amazed with what he can do. And whatever gasoline tyreek hill has in his tank. All my gosh. What he when he gets. It's like it's like the road runner and everybody's got lead in their shoes. It's amazing watch those guys play. Yes so then. Have you bet against patrick. Mahomes in the super bowl door. How how do you bet against tom. Brady and the super bowl. It's tough it's It's gonna be a lot of fun and yeah. I often think about it. you know clearly. patrick mahomes. Athletic ability is off the charts. And there's a whole lot of really talented offensive weapons there in kansas city but the play calling the play design is unbelievable as well like they use some things that you don't see any other team do and they executed to perfection most of the time so i'm not one to give too much credit to coaching staff. A lot of the time especially in the game when there's eleven guys on each side of the field but when you really look at it. There's there's some some really impressive work being done. By andy reid and the staff and okay so that so that gives me one thought so matt lafleur who is a young guy. Who's you know really got had a really good year and it comes down to one moment that maybe a lot of people don't like very much. There was a time andy. Reid was soundly criticised in philadelphia. He can never win. He can't win. He doesn't know how to coach in the big moment. Now andy reed's genius and it's amazing. You need time to make the full picture. And so i look at that and i i think flir screwed up. I think he would want to redo that again. Certainly when it turned out the way it did but maybe five years. We're not talking about matt lafleur the same way we are this morning. It's so interesting because we always talk about teams and players that need to lose. I figure it out. And i guess you put coaches in the same vein. Very few players coaches teams. Come in any situation and dominate right away. So it's a curious quirk about the sporting world and something to keep in mind. When you're betting it really is you know the the guys who have the experience at the end of the day and they've shown it usually comes to the forefront. Aren't chris will will let you go on that. And as we teased. I mean we look for adapted so a and will bite down on the bucks in jeeps and all of the permian look look like from kubat dot. Ceo's perspective so thanks for joining us here in episode seven and we always have a good time and we'll have a good time the next time we saw. Thanks so much guys darren. That's why you're a professional bike down after the food segment unbelievable Go get your rap break. I'm on the way our i ask. Ray androids anything. We touch the low. Bit on dylan's question about the crowd noise at nhl building. So we'll move on. Here's one that'll be near and dear to your heart rate in comes from berry because berry knows as do i and anybody listen to radio that you're huge baseball baseball's near and dear to your heart. So where do you rank now late. Great hank aaron the time best player list and berry says for him. he's rate at the top. No one did it better. An incredible five tool player hard argue. Where does hank. Aaron hammered hank rate on your list. He hit twenty home runs plus for twenty straight years. He drove in twenty seven. Hundred runs is the in. My mind is the home run king at seven hundred fifty five. He did it at a time where he was under enormous pressure. We don't see. We only saw like you know he broke the home run record in nineteen seventy three or four for seventy four. So i was ten. I didn't get to see him at his athletic best when he dominated defensively as well he is at the very top is at the very top it was and i just you read the stories after his passing of the number of people that had interactions with him spoken just amazing terms of henry. Aaron excellent barry. Thank you for the question. You can fire off your questions to ask. Rain rigs anything on our social media channels or website. Rain greg's dot com. A dubois has been the theme of episode seven here so with a pair luke. Dubois traded winnipeg jets Carlo wants to know. I don't think it's cool. Because i didn't learning radio while carlo would have been disappointed or the question would have been about the bills. He so we're taping this on monday. I do monday morning radio on. Tsn ten fifty with carlo. And michael landsberg. He was he was subdued. He was quite you needed now. The usual carlo quarterback pep in his step today and so. I don't know if you saw the tweet of his pre game meal with the yeah and tucked in this mass of snack foods was a bottle of grey. Goose vodka and i asked him on twitter. What's the greg for. And he openly admitted that when the bills score a touchdown shot while you did a shot real quick because the bills were out of the gate boom and that was it so the good news is carla. Wasn't hung over for radio. Monday more because he didn't drink a lot of vodka unless he guzzled at the end when he realized that it wasn't going to be it was gone so the other carlo wants to know with the line eighty lottery. Do we think that that now breaks seal and that we're going to see more player movement or it will be more stifled this season because of cap restraints in the cross border travel issues. I think it's going to be more stifled and for me. This was the perfect storm because you had three somewhat unhappy liars ross Of course you didn't go to camp doesn't have a contract but he wasn't interested in negotiating contract to stay in winnipeg Patrick lyon eight his time from his being measured now in games right to the end of the season if lucky enough you had the wasatch elation in columbus so you've got three players wanted change in so to include all three of those unique. We're not going to see that again. Maybe in a long time. But i think cross cross-border thing for sure is going to hamper deals. Do you think that this type of trade go might spark some activity on both sides of the border. No i don't i just i don't i mean i used to hate the term dollar in dollar out but with an eighty one five cap. I mean like not only. Do you have to have somebody else that say. I've got a problem on defense. And i've got to find somebody else. That has a problem on forward. Oh yeah and they gotta make the same money like they. Just it's i just don't see it Unfortunately happening because let's from our perspective. It's super interesting and fun to talk about all right. Last question vast grain. Greg's anything from neil early into the regular season what has been. Our biggest surprise is good. And bad. And neil says i think the north teams are going to sleep on the ottawa. Senators get burned. Everyone ranked him seventh in. the canadian. division will look like fools so obviously neal is no law center span and an out of the gate of course ottawa. We know they're gonna compete in their better than they were a year ago. But i can work. Divisions can be terrific cocky vancouver's gonna find it stride at some point in the near future and what you see is what you get from the ottawa senators and sadly neil. I think they are going to be a seven place team but they are going to be a team that keeps it interesting and they might nibble they might nibble let four or five spot in division c. I don't think they can get to that drags. I think they're in seventh place team in this division. But i don't but i don't know why that's a negative other than they're in last place. Obviously that's a negative They're young inexperienced You know i. I'm not sure what matt murray can give them in goal. And that's gonna be a key. Deal like matt moore is good. That's gonna erase a lot of youthful mistakes. Because they're not going to get more experience they're going to get less experienced as this year goes on and more young guys are going to play more and more and more but i. I'm not disappointed. Not awad all they play hard. They're in games. And i think the play well enough to lose a lot of close games but in a very short time. We're talking about ottawa very differently. Excellent alright ask rain dregs anything. What's your week. Look like because we give up for episode eight of rain. Greg's actually drake's. I've got my second game of the year that i will be traveling to be in edmonton on thursday for the oilers in the lease which again i'm a little out of the out of the mode of book and travel so the game thursday. I booked my flight in there on the wrong day and book that out on the wrong day and are travel department had to say. Raise the game thursday. And i'm like. Oh yeah i guess. I don't need to be there friday night doing. Are you taking a suitcase. Or you're just gonna leave it on you know what since i'm in quarantine i'm gonna take a knapsack with my dress shirt and in gone so you can't forget anything. You're going to wear your suit jacket on the return flight back to that. No i have a yeah. I've got my suit jacket. You don't wear a really on your way to the airport. But i'm gonna have my overcoat. It's golden edmonton. I assume i thought it was. I thought it was a glenn. Healy special right. Like one of those suit jackets. Dark blue or black and you can folded up into about. Because you know you bought it at some secondhand stores or have you have you. You've seen heels as close as wrinkled. Proof wrinkle proof suits he he. It was really quite amazing to watch that man dress for an nhl season. We haven't had heels on the podcast tablet do we but we got to open. We got to open him up. Now we'd like the head of the alumni. He's a you know we need to open heels up a little bit here which usually isn't very hard. Well yeah it used to be blah blah blah blah and a half chardonnay. And you'd get your best deals. I think he's off that though. I think he's often thinking toned it down now. He's maybe the lighter something you know what this is so heels. You know boisterous likes to chat. Lots of not here we go. There's nothing like listening to glenn. Healy played bagpipes at two thirty in the morning. When you're trying to leave and says why don't you stay for one more cold beer and then you hear from the back room her. I don't know you know fight. Sound like when they're warming up. Hell you doing. he'll come on i. I like robbie burns. Ninety eight in in whitby ontario. Many years ago and heels invited me holly and i went and is pipe ban is tremendous like i happen to love the pipes i do. I like it bagpipes. They'd make me tear up because spanish. If you've never been me. Stay spanish bay. You know you're playing spanish bay tomorrow. You're gonna play pebble beach if you're lucky enough on all those things but what's unique about spanish bay is that a piper comes out every night rape before dusk and that's just a symbolize the end of the day just a beautiful thing with civic ocean in the background and all those so i've got a soft spot for the pipe so i can't remember the song that was being piped-in were all doing this. You know waiting for robbie burns dinner. And i get a look at heels z's walking in and yell in stature is like a little bit portly short stout all of those things i star. How because his face like he's blowing on these things and it's just like this and his face purple like a boil that's about to explode and like people earn like i think it was like kind of a solemn entrance like you're not supposed to be laughing killing myself working because i'm sure his head's going to explode now when you described his face color okay. So he used to just give it to me in the press about how much i talk so it was a ninety. Three playoffs and heels was playing amazing. It was it was the best goal he ever played seriously. It was a career. Highlight for me was brilliant. And so in that playoff you know around that time. There was eddie eagle that he built for and cujo curtis joseph nights said and we got barney the dinosaur look at him. Fans were sending barney. Dole's he was so so is purple heels so good okay there. You go we've we've derailed here at the end of the cost much. We gotta get that clown back on we. We do have to get.

167: Winnipeg wins the Grey Cup; Duclair meets Tortorella; Bortuzzo Suspension is a Joke

"Sports and whatever everybody welcome to the show. It's Daily podcast. We talk about sports. And whatever ever I'm your host Steve Worn along with my pow. Jim Jerome and coming up. Today we're talking. Grey Cup Winnipeg ends there long. Drought sends taking on on Columbus in their next action on Monday night. That'll be an interesting one for Anthony Clare who probably doesn't Doesn't have a lot of good feelings about Columbus head head coach for what he said a few weeks before they ended up trading him to the sands teeing off on Mike. Babcock seems to be a cottage industry. Since his firing wiring Robert Cortisone his suspension Colin Kaepernick. So loads to get over the course of the show. Thank you for being with us and we hope you enjoy the show. How has weekend James? I can see over there staring at you. Drink watching that I think all alone and chances are you sitting here in this bar. Because he ain't going to treat you well. It's probably in my place but I'm GonNa see it anyway. 'cause you look lie you haven't felt if I had a little fun hadn't had a smile in a little a turban Stevie that Keith urban are you kidding me because blue looks good on this guy. He's my man crush Keith. Urban best halftime show ever at the C. F. L.. I said that too. I got a bit of pushback on tragically hip back in the mid two thousands but that was that was absolutely fantastic. I thought I love that guy. I love that guy. He's cool. He's like the coolest guy ever and I thought it was great. Well probably not my place but I'm going to sing anyway. I don't even know that song and I've been to Keith urban concerts it's A. It's an old standard it. It's an obstacle blue eight your color but the way he doesn't see just really cool. I like it all the time. I saw the boxer uh with with Carrie underwood. He brought brought video of her out there and he she had the Keith Urban t-shirt going that's that's an excellent song I was wondering how Oh he was gonna handle that when he started into it tonight but the medley that he chose was I thought pretty decent and and he's just a kind of gregarious guy smile through the whole thing just looks it's like he's having a better time than anyone in the building is cool and super cool very cool and it was a good choice and and it was the pyrotechnics that were going on as well I was thinking to myself I mean even if you don't like urban or his music I mean the presentation was totally big-league across the board I thought yeah I had some friends The only thing that didn't work and it's not Keith urban fault the halftime show spectacular was great. And then we'll we'll talk about the game at length of course. But so the Chris Cuthbert and his partner I like the guy. They've been together forever doing the CFL Glen suitor. Yeah Glen suitor the end up bringing Keith up into the booth truth and it's probably it's probably you know plan spontaneity. It's like we don't know if Keith will come up but if we can you know what I mean. We've we've done that radio right. I don't know if we get him on but he might be ready for it and they bring them on and he's really cool like Keith Good Avenue and he's like Hey Chris how are you man. Yeah Hey hey thank suits things shaking hands of them but it just turned into be terrible segment tone. They they don't ask. They did it last night on a hockey game too. Don't bring these guys and he's a musician. The chick they had on last night on the hockey game was a girl. WHO's now a Canadian who is a wwe commentator or something like that must've been watching and they asked them to to break the play down? Do you remember. Did you watch. Did you see that all I did and it was just it was it was totally cringe-worthy hours just said you guys are wrecking taking all the good. You did at halftime here. Yeah Yeah like they just get them up there. He's cool. He's like he's obviously game for anything you don't you don't get the sense. I get the guys. He's probably more humble than other. Entertainers you know. I don't know why I I've never heard a bad thing about the and I'd agree you know and they get them. There's like a how about how about the fact that you're like the number one country starting your from Australia. You know you have a couple of questions stevie okay you know somebody. A million things and in Glen suitor spent the first half of the interview talking about. He's a massive fan. And who's the better guitarist your Brad Paisley and is like to interview about anything or maybe you don't have the interview at all if you've got nothin' because like you say when he was really cringe-worthy because the guy's obviously fagin is we doesn't know anything about the CFL. I would question whether even knows much about football at all because a lot of Nashville predators games. We know that but you know I'm sure he's just there for the fun of it all and to put them on the spot like that was just very awkward and he and he gave he filled in for them. You know like he said of the energy is Great. The fans are good. I Love Calgary. I've been here before coming back again. And then the two of them are sort of looking at each other. Great I get it. It can be a little nerve wracking. But I don't think he he pops up there without them knowing knowing ahead of time. You know what I mean. Yeah I'd agree. I think that the sheer length of that and the the lack of questions they had almost like I got thinking that maybe this was part of the contract when Keith urban signed onto this thing that he wanted to try and get an opportunity to connect with a new audience in Canada and all that and that may be one of his. Pr People said. Well we're in the back and forth negotiation the even willing to do like a ten minute interview during the game great. Let's do it. I just think that it almost had almost a contractual contractual commitment to it. Well maybe so but he was certainly workable. You know like you could have worked with this guy and they say okay. What do you see? We're here now. call the play. And he's like what. What am I coach? What do you mean what do I see? You know. And he wasn't saying anything. I think that they've sort of left them up to dry but anyway that's small speed bump the game was I'll tell you what Steve I bet. Hamilton so I lose and just to reset the winner was the Winnipeg blue bombers. They win thirty three to twelve and their drought of twenty nine. Years comes to a close. So Nice to see Winnipeg egg win something. Yeah it was. Well tell you what Steve. They only scored two touchdowns Winnipeg. Okay medlock kicks luck in six expelled goals. Okay and that thing I mean I I never understood other guy did not make it in the NFL right. He's he's automatic attic. He's automatic man. Yeah so only touchdown. They held Hamilton. That was you know it wasn't it wasn't as one-sided there's a there's a bunch much of stats always that come out of these things but I don't think Winnipeg ever turned the ball over in the playoffs if I'm not the entire playoffs this year in the entire playoffs I I don't think they ever turn the ball over which is like crazy unusual. Winning a game by only may only get in two touchdowns I think is pretty rare. Especially against the team did get another touchdown. Hamilton got a touchdown. So there's only three altogether. Someone's getting to one for Winnipeg in the touchdowns Johnson Hamilton ends up turning the ball over twice. I think on downs which you never see in the CF L. right like they got they got third and one third of inches and shit and you get a yard of course and they do that twice. They throw an interception and the quarterback fumbles you know so those those you know. That was a huge difference in that football game huge difference. Oh no doubt I mean that's always talk about any analyst. He's doing the keys to victory right. It's one of the first things they always talk about taking care of the ball and win the turnover battle. I mean that's it right there. I mean that's almost more telling than the scoreboard aboard itself obviously scoreboard his end of the day. The thing but you tell me one team had six turnovers. The other team had none. Who won that ballgame? Yeah right right yeah true and you know they see you know games are one. I saw Chris Collingsworth. Say This I was watching the Green Bay game a little bit after Games are one. Lost at the line of scrimmage and I sort of get that a Lotta Shit went on to that game man to Hamilton. Anyway it was kind of weird. Yeah I mean there's this guy kicked them to death medlock absolutely kicked them to death And it was never Harris was great as well he was just one big run after another and He had a couple touchdowns in the game he was he was Mr everything. Does it bug you at all or does it concern you. What all is taking anything away from? I'm the win all that. This guy was busted for performance enhancing drugs this year. Eric sit out for a minute. Yeah oh I didn't know that I didn't know that yet. Well you're talking to a guy who thinks everyone deserves a break when it comes to that shit you know. Does it bother for me. Not An addiction scenario though it's Illinois you know trying to get an edge thing right well they test for it you know. That's that's the best thing that's as ever come along in sports. I think it takes a little bit away. But not a ton. He did his time Did the crowd at the time and and then came back and Carried on until the rules change where they take it a little more seriously than than will go down that road then but in whatever the laws are of the CFL he paid his price and came back and help the team and was probably the you know. If you're looking for a star yet you're right medlock would be one. And Andrew Harris would be the other and that whole defense winnipeg defense was just terrific like when you get in the trenches. How many times did you see guys run past? Hamilton Tiger cat offensive linemen. And that's a team by the way the one fifty times this year. Hamilton is no slouch and Winnipeg which had to win three times. All on the road just got they seem to be able to turn it up exactly the right time this season in the NFL different than the NFL the CFO. It was such a huge huge dimension. Difference right in the field right. Everyone knows that it's it's it's just giant and the one yard. You know the one yard restraining deal right in the NFL you seldom. It's not very often. You see great defense for the whole frigging game you. You know like like eventually. They're going to look at this thing and go what's happening. There's all sorts of remote here man you know but but I think it was the they made them look like they're in high school that that defensive line and the way they were crazy crazy. Good crazy good. I thought it was a good game. They've enjoyed oh yeah. It was a great game for sure. Yeah other than losing worked. How much did you lose by the way? That's two hundred bucks. ooh This is my big. My Bet Steve of the year would like when did you get the same kind of rush. You know even the twenty or fifty dollar range per well. I'll tell you what I'm up money. I got some house money. That's why through it on the Upgrade Cup. Okay I got a little bit of Doan because they worry about you. You've got that addictive personality Z.. I Bet I bet I bet about once or twice a week fifty or a hundred bucks but I put the water on the big game. If you're ever going to bed in a game it'd be a game like that. Raise our the national championship. And I gotta say I'm watching that thing going. I do not care who wins this football game. It's Hamilton and Winnipeg. I got no emotion. I mean Hamilton. A Little Ottawa's taken them on in the playoffs in recent seasons. I just I still didn't feel anything for either side in that game and and to have a little bit of action on it probably would have made a little difference for me to throw shackles on their yeah. Hamilton was favored but they they just like it was kind of weird. 'cause Winnipeg only got a couple of touchdown wasn't you know there was some good pass receptions but it wasn't no one really stood out. You know receiving wise. I hope that none of the Calera didn't win the MVP. I mean he was good but they got to give it a medlock or or or Harris Harris. Yeah let me double check on that because it was Did Not come in when we started the show in Harris Harris is Graham VP. He's the first Canadian to be named the Grey Cup. MVP Says Russ. Jackson did it in nineteen sixty nine. No kidding wow Nicole well yeah. They're Nice Story to Ritchie Hall. Richie is one of the off field coaches. I think Richie whole is that his name With Winnipeg pretty good story to He I think he lost his brother this year or something and so he became one of this sort of feel good thing at the end of the game. When we're talking about what what does it mean to a lot of guys? And the head the head coach Chez Chez or Shea. What's OCE oce? I saw a little vignette there where the interview and he was talking about. How much the game means the people in Manitoba and Winnipeg talking about? You know there's relatives of people now who are coming along same. This means so much because my old man was a fan you know or or we always. Where they're you? You know there were all these jerseys around the house and stuff it was pretty good good Canadian football stevie absolutely and then that guy can our pants put some pants on. For God's sakes that bomber Fan has gone eighteen years wearing long pants valley. Eighteen years ago when Winnipeg had had lost the Grey Cup that year said. I'm GONNA go shorts until they win it again in eighteen years later. They finally do so. That guy is going to be a little warmer this winter than he's been in quite some time and by the way portage and main fifty below. It's not exactly the best place in the world that we wearing shorts all year round. Have you ever been to Winnipeg. I've never been to Winnipeg you. Yeah Lots I've been there. Lots yeah and so that intersex intersection portage and main okay. Call it. The windiest intersection in the world. Okay and I thought whatever how can how can doesn't that make the whole city the Wendy's place in the world okay. You're you know what I mean. What are they going to big walls up for blocks around eight or what that the can't anyway stay down downtown? I was there for a couple of great cups and and And some briars and downtown and a you know what they are absolutely bang on. It's like you walk walkout side Steve. And you're like what the fuck is this a tornado here. And you go four blocks later. It's the weirdest thing thing I've ever seen ever felt so I wonder if it's as cold as walking into a sense game in January like that actually build this massive long tunnel coming out of the thing going right back into the parking lot to protect fans from the wind for some reason that place out in Kanada in that parking lot it just the windiest coldest coldest place on earth. It's probably not as bad as portage and main bought. It's still pretty damn bed. Which is why did that whole thing about his his sweater? Scheduler it's four sweater night or something. Yeah that was stupid anyway. The coldest the coldest I've ever been and as the cold place on earth I was Edmonton years ago. do I was doing a Gig was a curling event either Briar Olympic trials. Or something. And excuse me the one thing I've always said about curling like you know with the Great Cup I went with the spirit of Edmonton for years. They got they got a huge room. That goes for three nights. And it's it's giant. One one of the best games in town when the breakup on they travel all the cities but the difficult with the Great Cup. You get a lot of people travel there right. Steve going on the Wednesday and they have a Helluva time Is there's it's really not totally confusing. But there's a bunch of in different events going on every night during that week at the Great Cup. So you'll have a winnipeg. We'll have their room. Hamilton will be there somewhere with their that. They set up their hospitality. Bunch other cities some some some cities do it some. Don't you know in the CFL. And then you've got the Calgary city of Calgary. Are we doing but your stuff. So it's like where we're GONNA go tonight. You know you're always at fuck that's supposed to be good but that's way out of town that's to the brier. Is One beer garden. Okay that's it. That's the only game in town. And it's always attached to the rink or just across the yard somewhere say a little overrated the Briar Patch after all the discussion about it. It's like yeah. It's a big beer garden. Well Steve Wynn emceeing it was not overrated But it was for a while big Beer Garden but now the huge acts. Now it's five six million dollar event that they put on anyway back back to the coldest day so the beer garden was across the street from at that time northlands coliseum. Where we're the curling was going on so it's about it's about a two block walk okay from the arena to the beer garden and it's over a bridge? That goes over the main avenue. You okay so ago you walk out of the Beer Garden and then you've got a hike over this arching bridge that is fully exposed. Okay so it's cold. Oh man it's called. It's a cold snap that week and I'm sitting in the office Before I gotta go over to the rink and there's an announcement there's a there's a cold warning there. Steve that it's minus fifty two degrees Steve. Okay minus fifty two two okay and do cold. It's too cold but it happens to literally be the coldest place on earth that day and I'm happy happy that bad and whip out through my coat on no hat no gloves. No nothing and the wind is howling. I'm walking over this bridge right. There's there's no one there and I've gone to myself I'm going. Oh my God this fucking crying okay. Ball Damn mm-hmm by forehead is frozen solid and I come across a guy who's like sort of pulling himself along. This Ridge. Older guy like well into his seventies and he's looking back to see if you can get back to the garden or looking ahead and he's like a halfway in between rate and come on pal he goes. No No. It's fine have had a good life. uh-huh minus fifty two grade. Okay let's wrap up our discussion with a little trivia and it's not really anything necessarily expect you to get you either know what you want won't but it's more of a is this an interesting stats or money figure in this case. Do you really expect me to get anything really. It is brought to you by silk web solutions if you need a website website maintenance or help with your online presence visit Silkworm Solutions Dot com or call or text. Six one three eight five nine four thousand spin your web with silk and I thought that was an interesting Money figure 'cause you know it's the NFL after all and we all know minimum wages Well it's a lot of money for the amount of abuse you take so our question is how much money does each player on the Grey Cup winning team get. Do you think now give you like I. Don't know what kind of swing do you want. Five ten thousand dollars Well if it's ten thousand dollar swing swing. It's already way more money than I thought. Or could be a red herring by me. I would say each player gets twenty. Five grand twenty. Five grand is not bad. Sixteen thousand dollars is the number so if ten is our swing than you are correct sir.

November twenty fifth as ascends play Columbus In the Anthony Declare will probably have a bit of a Bernie sadly taken the high road. Everybody's he's been asking about a about it over the course of the weekend. Oh you taken on John Tortorella again back. In February when Columbus Traded Anthony declared the sends ends John Tortorella absolutely buried. Anthony declare saying things like I don't think he can play. He's off the rails What else did he say? Few let me play the clip for you here. This is John Tortorella just a few weeks before Columbus traded declared of the sands. I don't think he knows how to play. I don't I I it seems to me. He's like a player that just feels. Does he get the PUCK. 'cause he's tremendously skilled can skate. He has all those things you guys know. I just think he thinks he can go. Do whatever the hell he wants on the ice. You can't do it in the national hockey. We spent a lot of time trying to teach them trying to teach Situational play Away from the pock all the stuff we do with players sometimes. It looks like he's understanding Sonar roundabout to answer your question. I don't know I I don't know. Oh if if you just can't comprehend it or just stubborn but he's running out of time. Challenge Presley Challenge for goats to make sure that might make him learn i. I love that part of the game. The teaching part of the game And I said right along here. I think it's worth it with him because I think there's a tremendous mundus upside but here we are again. The fourth team in another coach pissing a Moan about them scratching them benching him some somewhere along the line. I I think he has to understand. I have to be more attentive and I have to start being more consistent so in a roundabout way. I don't know what he is. I thought I was learning them but I don't know what he's what. He is. Gone now member of the Ottawa senators and what he probably is for the game on Monday. Night is pissed off at John Tortorella right first of all stevie are the sense not about five hundred now. What's what Yup? They're eleven eleven in one almost like Attributd Alfredsson. Yeah I mean for all the ship. We've we've been talking about the sense particularly me your bigger supporter of them than I am. what's going on Steve. What's supposed to be losing their plane? Okay they're winning games absolutely and they they don't they had this. They had this thing the other night where they like. Everybody's banged up on the Blue Line. Insights have had to go back to Russia for personal reasons. It's mother guys dinged up and they're bringing up all these guys in the minors Gyros and Lejoie and was like Oh my God. That's going going to be going to be a kind of a tough one. And they just absolutely abused the New York Rangers a nice four one win very tidy and I know there's some sense fans who were like this isn't really tank nation. We're in right now but I'm really enjoying watching the team. Play like it's I think there are a lot better than people. Give them credit for. I didn't think they'd be you know. As far as points percentage of five hundred club at this stage. But everybody's playing a lot better than we thought they would would like individually guys are better than I thought they'd be you know. Declare would be a great example as he takes his old team tonight in his old coach. This sky's got like in the last fifteen games. Scott Fourteen points. The whole team is just over achieving. Maybe the not over achieving. Maybe they just doing something that we didn't expect it's not that they didn't have it in them. Maybe there's something to save for this guy. Send a guys down so fast that everyone's going. What's what's going on here that there maybe a little desperation you know maybe gotta fight for your job? I don't know well. One of the strengths of a new coach is always that he's not the old guy. You're seeing it in Toronto auto right now you know. They win their first game. Everybody's talking in the news about Babcock was this and Babcock did that. And what Jerky was not. Just my commodore. In Mark Fraser came came forward former leaf. Ottawa Guy This the Toronto Sun at a couple of really scathing things to say about him and And I think there's a little of that going on in Ottawa's well Dj. Smith's done a great job and I love the way he communicates with the players. But I think one of the other strengths he has is that he's not Kibo. Shay that staff with with Jack Capuano and Davis Pain Razz. Not The former staff remember. They had the Uber Cab Ride Complaining About The coaching. Last year. Mardi Raimondo owned and said Mark Crawford in that is like I think that whole coaching staff is Is doing a good job but again. They're not the old guys in so I think that's a big part of it. The Levy that comes with a new voice back there. Yeah you know I was saying this past week that I just don't I just don't like Babcock thank you know. He's not a very likable guy. You know what I'm saying. Steve Get much from him. He's he's sort of a little standoffish. No it doesn't I. I never see the guy laugh. Never smile ever and then I got so that was on one of those shows we did. And then I got some tweets from people say oh. I've heard this about the guy to. I heard that the a lot of it was above the players not liking him and playing for ever. Yeah this year. Here's a couple of things from the Toronto Selling Mark Fraser. As I mentioned he said on twitter he saying because he came to commodores. I defense to some degree. Fraser said that based on his conversations and stories related to him ninety five percents of Babcock's players can't see a good thing about him. Fraser also tweeted. We did the babcock quote used his power to turn teammates against one another in the story. What which was? The story was written by Terry Koshien of the Toronto or Ottawa. Center the trauma. Sonic he's in Toronto Jane yet but he he had something he reported eating. Say who exactly said this but this I wrote at one tale that was related to us in the past few days that said to have occurred in the twenty sixteen seventeen season during the annual father's trip by the way back Babcock was alleged to avast one of the leafs rookies to make the list of the players on the team and go from hardest working to those who don't have a strong work ethic and the rookie did so because he didn't want upset upset the coach but then the rookie was taken aback. When Babcock came forward and told all the players who had been listed at the bottom and I don't know if he added the kid or not didn't say here in the story but that's the VIBE I get from and the whole thing with Jason Spencer here Spencer signing on with the leaves of free agent for a million dollars near the end of his career? Here this season they take on his old team. The Ottawa senators on opening night. Mike Babcock doc scratches them. Yeah right I there's no. There's no shortage of stories. Yeah I thought AH first of all that reaction to the thing I thought was look. This isn't great school here so I didn't really give a shit scratching the ninety brought. It's a little bit of a D. Bag. Move a little bit. But it's the big bad world sport. What really really is got my interest here is? Is that comment. The Guy said that babcock were trying trying to make other players turn on the other ones to piss them off. What was that like to motivate just to be an ASS? Just I think he wants you know He. He tries to get the most he can at of each player and doesn't care who he buries in the process of doing that right. There's two sides you know. It's not the way you want to go out of your babcock right. It's not I I would hate to be characterized that way you know that I'm a coach in the NHL. I got a huge ticket and players don't like to play for me that's brutal right. That'd be a brutal brutal thing to have on your epitaph take. No one liked to play for them. I'd also argue that. The there's a scenario here where commodore cut by him. And you know reference commodores commodores being overweight and that was part of why wasn't in there and he didn't like how things went with his time of the red wings. Mark phrases not a guy that stay with the least very long like if if I start hearing from some star players who got all the ice time and made all the teams under Babcock then I might take this stuff a little more seriously seriously. Right Deuba Scott. A shot from Nazem Kadri the other day because he got traded and cadre basically said I got a forty five the second phone call from cal dubious. I wasn't very happy with that after ten years as a Toronto Maple Leaf like it's usually the guys who've been scorned who come back and and pylon when something like this happens but dube is made a good point okay in fairness to do this because cagey did say that. I saw that every. He's with Colorado. Now right he the Do wait up wait a minute here. Okay with with social media okay. Now that everything is done in an instant is as soon as we make the trade trait. We're we're obligated to speak to the player. I and right away okay. So unless that guys in the office or sitting in the waiting room the only way we can do it and we have to do it we have other is going to hear it from someone else right soon as the people leave the room so the hang up the phones so the understand and what. I'm saying yeah yeah so there's no time this isn't it. You look for a parade with what we call up to tell you what's happened. Yeah exactly so. That's that's easy pal or get fucking plane and drive down tell you know so. That was a stupid comment from catchy but the other thing is though players I yeah. I don't sports. Stephen General right is always talk about the fraternity of it right than in the end in the end. You know we get to play in. The greatest is game on Earth we get to play at the highest level. We get to eat the greatest food we get. The greatest friendships got the greatest experiences. We make them fucking most money of anybody. Hey Buddy I'm not sure that you WANNA begin to it becomes a little cheesy a little a little bad when when a guy does get fired or moved and people start with a bunch of negative a bunch of negative comments. It's a small world man. You better be careful you better be careful if you're a player you know it's not like it's not like Babcock is fading away man right. This guy may end up in management somewhere. I bet he'll he'll stay in hockey for for sure. According to his comments coach as long as I can and I'll coach his heart as I can and I believe him I believe he's probably probably totally uncomfortable away from the rank. Mike Babcock but so I I would. I would go easy on my comments after a week after the guy gets turfed. Well he not. That says you know. That's that's his penance. He got fired and so I find it. I don't know a piling on to have all these media reports suddenly come out me. Commodore had had said what he said. But all of a sudden this is becoming. You know I'll take a grab a stone. Start to throw them. Well he got fired. What else do you want like? He got fired. He's paid the price he's moving on and You know unless he's gotten into something illegal I I don't know why the media India is all of a sudden now. It's almost like okay. He's no longer around now. We can really bury him. Why were you burying him for the last four years right right and I would think Steve? Yeah I don't know the stat but but there's not too. Many guises stayed their whole career on one team right. It's it's completely rare and so when this Guy Mike Babcock not going anywhere and I might have had a little better exit exit strategy advise the player instead of commenting commenting negatively. When I BURP Steve? That's why I say negatively negatively Jeff. Good Luli that he may end up being a place if when he left that team is I was like I go look at. I got nothing but great things to say about Mike. I'm sorry it didn't work out for them but I think it was wonderful guy and I think he tried his ass off. That might serve you. Well Steve Human Nature that might serve you well down the road when Babcock is on a team making some decisions about who stays. And who doesn't doubt. Now I totally agree Yeah I just think burning bridges is always a bad idea. You know I think professionally when you know you part company. Yeah there's emotions obviously but it doesn't serve anybody well to either pile on somebody else or pile on the person who fired you You take the high road road every single time and right better off for everybody will be happier you'll be better off four professionally I just don't think there's any point in it One last thought though before we move away from them And hit break are competing weapons today the NHL Trade deadline as we record. This is exactly three months from today. So decisions must be made and of WanNa be pure dory on right now because he's got a lot of decisions to make he's got fourteen guys who were on the NHL Roster or on the injured list. I that are free. Agents some are FA summer UFA's so which of the free agents should be resigned and on the Sun Sends Roster next season Anderson Barbie Eski Brown slapping mellow declare. Ns hanes ems off Pasha. Paul Tyrrhenian Sabrin. That is quite a month for twenty more games before he asked that question. Yeah Yeah I hate all automated deals. You know before some of these guys like you. Look at Posh for example. He's he's on a hot streak right now right and declare as well to some degree Brown so in the case of joie meticulous. That's easy. Ufa You can if you're thinking about a resigning him well then get it done. Because he's his stock is going up and up and up is price tag is gonNA keep going up if he keeps scoring like this. I guess he's got like ten goals goals in the last eleven games And maybe trade them. If that's the plan a trade him then maybe you want to trade them right now while the stock is high before he cools off somewhat or wait the deadline it just as there's a lot of variables figuring out what these guys are. The hot streak is they are anyway. But you're you know there's a million ways to go about it. That's the anything about being a manager. Is that lots of paths to success lots of paths to failure. And what you're saying. There is not unreasonable. Wait twenty more games in Seattle. Seok goes well look at Toronto. We just talked about look at Toronto. You know this is going to be there year. We've done the rebuilding further coach twenty. Yep so here's some feedback on the poll wreck rights. Big Rick Pozo declare. If short term. I WOULD WANNA sign Melania Mess Niqab because if they're reasonable and Nick Paul. If he's consistent likely few this at some point though the rebuild should have some signings behind it right. Avoid the forever rebuild please and by the way down with Melnik. Lt writes another good member. I believe the sans. We'll get a what's that poor Melnik. Jesus even when they're going well it's still there. I believe the sans. We'll get a slightly lesser mark stone kind of return for J. G. Pozo if he keeps this up. Josh rights borough and Eugene are tight so boroughs GONNA STAG S. I Bet Hanes moves into assistant coach next year. Andy is Gonzo. I want Potpie show and declare locked up up. The rest. May whatever we got so many picks nipping at their mediocre. Bottom six and finally Anderson according to Paulo has to go and the thought of resigning should never come up tyranny and Paul and get you another goal and keep the rest hanes. He's stable the and good to be with the youth. Two Cups says something so thanks to everybody for all their your feedback on that poll which is twenty games too early debt according to Jimmy Webb holes brought to you by rb computing storms and power. tyrod just can wreak havoc on your computers electronics. You'RE GONNA call our be competing today and they're gonNA make sure you're protected and for a limited time. Steve Get a twenty percent discount. Discount on all services for listeners. Come in and say hey I heard this ad on the project twenty percents that's rb computing DOT COM one. Oh six six dash two three five men place in bells corners. Did you see this cross. Check that everybody's talking about from the weekend. It happened in a a Saint Louis Nashville game was Robert Bore twos Zo on Viktor. Arvidsson Arvidsson lingering in the crease for Tuesday doesn't like it lays he's right beside the golden like he's right in there and so as defenseman do the little. Here's a little cross check for you. And Arvidsson goes flying into the net. I think I think and I got a bit of pushback on this other garbage and embellished it a little. And he's got a history of that by the way but let's leave that aside or twos realizes is is that the rest going to call a two minute minor for the initial cross-check. He's yelling at the referee. Let come on. What are you doing? And he's furious and then at this stage Arvidsson collected himself. He's out of the net but he's still on all fours as he's trying to get out and bore two-zone hits him. With one of the most vicious crosschecks you'll ever see like a pile piledrive crosscheck that is now knocked Arvidsson out for the next four to six weeks. Meanwhile or Twos oh just gets a four-game suspension. I'm for it. I got a question for you Steve. Okay I want your thoughts on this and it has everything to do with what you're talking about if you triple Guy Okay Eh. It's a penalty okay tripping penalty but but when the guy falls he breaks his leg okay. It's still real to me to me. Still just a two minute penalty right okay to me it is. It wasn't intended to injury treat. You know even if it wasn't intended to trip you know it's not like you try to happens all the time. So injuries happened to hockey. All the time. This thing to me is if we go backwards from the end of it. Okay hitting a guy when he's down and has his back to you and he's crouched on his knees and and you got the fucking stick above him and you are full on the place first of all the plays blown debt and this guy that cross check through on them after the first one for me. He is like a ten Gamer man. I thought that was a terrible terrible play. I really did for all those reasons down and out play blown dead guy. Can't see you got his back to you. And he's halfway down the ice now and you cross check him that Hart. CEO Hardy Cross. Check them in the back. You're you're trying to hurt the guy there. You are trying to hurt the guy so add all those things up. You know there's there's like a tick all six boxes. There should this guy get a big suspension hundred percent. The other one is he crosschecks guy when I think he can seize at the crossbar the net. You know right like he he obviously you know the right at the net and he crosschecks into the crossbar which is kind of gross is Kinda it gross. That guy ends up getting injured because he goes smashing into the crossbar which the guy knew he would. Oh that's not the injury that's not. What the injury? The injury occurred on the second one but that should be. I thought that was almost the spendable to cross-checking guy into his face is right near that crossbar. You know I'd have to. I'd have to look at it again. I saw I watched it a couple times last night. But but throw that aside then that fucking cross-check where he had him when he was down. I thought you thirty dirty pig. Yeah and it's not the first time he's done it. It was who was it exactly as a member of the New York islanders anyway and it was a couple years ago l.? And he did almost the exact same thing did it twice. It was actually worse. If you look up. More two zero islander crosscheck. You'll see him do it twice to a guy who's down Out this I I think I can't remember which was but he collided with one of your toes teammates and berthus. I didn't like it and gave them two of those deals. Because the guy was like kind of I st knocks him down and then gives them two of those. And you've got a three thousand dollar fine no suspension whatsoever Anyway I agree with you. I mean it's their cross-checking checking is I think referees or too liberal with the amount of cross-checking they allow in front of the net to start with but it does seem to be part of the game. But that's the the thing it's compete situations if you're competing and you're battling for position. That's you know that that unfortunately is a hockey play. This had nothing to do with that. This guy was pissed off. He believed Arvidsson dove on the first one and he was just enraged. They said you know what I'm GonNa get my money's worth here. I'm going for cross-checking here's a real crosscheck. Back to get a guy like that when he is super vulnerable he has no idea. That's common as opposed to standing in front of the net like Brady Ca. Chuck does casinos is going to get cross-checked in the back so yeah four games. Probably not even enough for that play. Yeah I agree I agree like like you. You add something else there too. So let's look at this thing repeat offender okay. The guy's got his back turned. He's down on the ice tick Plays blown did tick. He can't defend themselves. Tick you know Anger you got an anger problem here right and you and you took it out. Uh on someone to try and hurt them you know. That's all that shipment that thing had all that all over it and I think it I I got a bit of feedback from people saying thing so Arvidsson had four to six weeks now so why wouldn't bore twos Obio until he's back in the lineup. I like the intent behind that but you can see where the pitfalls would lie with something like that in Abruzzo is a fringe. NHL Player. What if it's the other way around and it's a star player who takes out a fringe player right and say it's a playoff series or something like that? The fringe player coming back anytime soon. Right that would have the scenario of it could be abused if you start along suspensions to go down like you have to be suspended for as long as that guys out of the lineup. But Steve There's there's discretion okay there's discretion from the guys who make this suspension. Okay that they're gonNA look I just I just did it all. I just wrapped all the ship that they look at. Okay right. That's what that's what they take into account when they are deciding. What sort of suspension are we gonNA lay down here? Okay yes you know when well is when is the NHL. This argument about a player should miss as much game as many games as the guy who's injured. I think it's a great idea. I think it's people have been talking about that for years and in this case when it is so blatant and so sold home malice you know what this guy did the lease gotta go. Yeah you know what it normally would be ten games. But you're going to have wait till this guy comes back and it's you'd have to you'd have to have a maximum on it and case it was career ending but but I don't know I don't know if what what if he ended the guy's career it's going down the road. I just think that it has the potential for abuse Again and if it happens in game one of best seven Stanley Cup. Final and star player does something to really bad player that that team doesn't care about one way or the other guy's not gonNA play again in the series and that may not be affair thing right right but I like the idea. I like the intent of it. Because it doesn't seem fair to Nashville or Viktor Arvidsson I've always found Arvidsson to be a bit weasley player to start with so I don't mind me. I guess I have less sympathy for that particular player than most but setting that aside and assessing the situation and the incident as it played out like he's going to be gone for six weeks and he'd really do anything Leading up to that. I think there's a bitterness about that player with the Saint Louis Blues because he has he's been a diver against them in the past but that said it's just not fair. That Arvidsson is going to be gone for six weeks and board is going to be gone for a week and a half and the fact. That guy's a diver has nothing to do with this. Nothing nothing to do with it all. He wasn't dive in there. He was down in perception. That didn't hit him very hard and that he that he embellished. I have no idea only Arvidsson. I can answer that question. I don't know the answer that but I think the diving thing in the past might it might color the whole situation a little bit. And they're sick of his act and that may be part of why he snapped. But I don't know I it just it's stupid it's You know four games a message. The Guy Sky Spitting incident that we talked about last week right and he got three games for that. No one's getting injured there. That's right I think I think the League has do stop before they Maybe they did. I don't I don't know but to see what's going to be the result of this injury that the guy incurred if it's if it's four weeks or two weeks for sure Then they can look at that and go okay. Look we're not going to get kicked out of the League. We're not gonNA Blah Blah Blah. Give them wait around of this guy's three months out but he's going to get a soon as we find out that's four weeks while he's get in two weeks two weeks out if that's four or five or six games and that's what it is anyway. The guy should have got more than four games that we are in agreement for for sure on that When we come back on the show talk about The latest on Colin Kapernick and what the results were after that workout he had last week for several NFL scouts. I remind everybody that we have some great sponsors and and we would love it if you could Support them because they support us and keep this podcast Roland for example Jim Kaye Ford the winter driving his here.

Some great advice I says well Popeye supplements six Ottawa. Locations or Popeye's Canada dot com to close at the call and capture Nick's story and of course last week. You probably saw the workout that he had a bunch of media there. Apparently a bunch of scouts were there. Well according to the chicken throw it. Did you see foia Roya Grazie. There was some concerns about his accuracy. Don when he gets beyond those twenty five yard throws but he moved well L. Strength. was there the arm strength all that. And according to Adam schefter though there was there was not one bit of interest. There has been no calls from anybody the in the NFL for Colin Kaepernick. And if you're a fantasy football player he see guys go down to injury like there's lots of quarterback been hurt this year the steelers without about Donald take guys back there There are some real no names who played in the NFL this year. And even if you don't like Cabernet anymore as a starting quarterback from from a compete standpoint and measuring as a backup. He's well within you. Know the top fifty or sixty quarterbacks alive right now and it's just a case so I think that most people don't want all the distractions that go with Colin Kaepernick. You do you think. Do you think it's you know what he might be good enough. But he's a goof. OOF or shouldn't say is a goof. The Guy stood up for what he believed in. I think that's another story but how he did that the way he we went about. It is arguable arguable. But do you think. That's why Steve or is he just not good enough. I think he's got the talent for sure you're to be a backup quarterback in the NFL however so much of what a coach tries to do with any given team is to to build them to get chemistry To just have a real smooth thing happening in the in the locker room right his massive this massive media that would be following following this backup quarterback or third string quarterback. Whatever it ended up being would be probably more nuisance than it's worth? And honestly I thought he came across belligerent. After his work at last week he sounded like he was more of a social activist than An. NFL quarterback the way he was talking to everybody. I've been ready for three years. I've been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here a show today in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we're waiting for the thirty. Two owners thirty two teams Roger. Goodell all of them to stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people. That's why I'm I'm not signing him right there. I hear that and I'm like Sewri. If I had any kind of inkling that maybe you can help my football team. I'm not bringing that in particular the NFL. Steve Okay that personalities manner so freaking fragile right. I mean we hear it all the time. Look this year Antonio Brown do right this guy food would. You would've just shut his mouth. He may have gotten into some trouble with some stuff off the the field but if he would have shut his mouth he would have been able to play anywhere right until it'd be a good teammate. You know he'd like he he. He basically alienated himself from the steelers Co Star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and he just burned every bridge that came along after that but but a lot of players man they got. You gotTa step gingerly around him right. You're good player Malone fucking goalies. You know don't talk to movement and you've got a loud mouth like this in your locker are saying we're gonNA bring that into the locker true. It's all I can do to keep the peace amongst the overpaid superstar and the the fragile running back and the temperamental freaking. QB All right. That's that Shit Dude you're you. That is the dumbest thing you could have ever done is got on your high horse for the big speech like you're the poll. Yeah you you know. And then there's the wondering about okay. We're going to just renew this whole thing about the taking a knee during the anthem and whether or not that's appropriate or not as lots of people blunt both sides of it of course right thinking person would appreciate and support would kapernick is trying to draw spotlight on but I also appreciate okay. If an you know if the policy of a team that everybody to honor the flag is that they stand during the anthem. Well that that's not totally unreasonable. Either anyway and you want to get all political. Show something fun you got anymore Keith. Urban to close it out I absolutely. Do you want some Isam boxer. I'll play the Carrie underwood boxer. I Dunno the boxer. Oh no no no back to sing. That used to sing that McGraw Song. Eight seconds on a bull shit used to sing was brutal Tim McGraw. Aw that song I went sky diving.

No no no no no no no no no. It's good I can see you over there staring at you. Drink watching the sink alone tonight out and chances are you sitting here in. Because he ain't gonNA treat you right.

Thanks the duff what you don't hear sometimes is the ones that he calls any screws up and that's to call again it's always a riot but thanks. For bringing the laughs every single week and thanks to all of you been laughing along with the Winnipeg every Thursday night new episode dropped last night at nine pm Eastern on my facebook page and the Youtube Channel Dave spevak arrival and I are talking about our first yobs slash jobs. Since we don't pronounce Jay's on on the Winnipeg city lot of delivery gigs, free food video games, shape manure You hear a story about Dwayne Johnson but not that Jane Johnson Winnipeg's to Johnson he looks like a ginger. Ginger puppet something along those lines Time Dave's dad forced him to get a job. It was actually a really great taping last nine a lot of fun. So come join us with the Winnipeg irs new episodes. Every Thursday at nine PM Eastern. All right today, we're talking about thirty wrestling shows in thirty days with hotshot, Dan Dugan and AJ Sanchez Danny runs the Canadian wrestling elite promotion base that Winnipeg has been building steam and adding dates every year for the last few years and the story of the company. The Gimmick if you will is they do a crazy one of a kind tour that's literally thirty shows in thirty days. They travel across Canada and until the pandemic, they had missed a show ever. Had plenty of near misses over the history of the tour over the course of this year that had to cancel allowed the schedule shows because of the locked in because of covid. But goodness as the following shows will happen as planned in the month of October and November serve your Jones them for some live wrestling and you live in kind of western Canada area get your tickets now at. CWC TICKETS DOT COM, and go check out one of these dates ten Seventeen Gladstone Manitoba October twenty second Calgary twenty-third red deer, twenty-fourth Saint. Albert's justice. Edmonson twenty-six is grabbed prairie Alberta thirty first Halloween and medicine at the V is more than they take it home in my hometown of. Winnipeg. On a November six again, you can get tickets at CW TICKETS DOT com. The shows are great lots of. Great talent. You're gonNA hear all about their mindset, their business plan. For Danny an AJ they'll talk about how cw got started. Some of the special guests they've had on the road jake, the snake, Roberts British the Barbie beefcake that didn't work out. So well for them, they got stories about travelling through the snowy freezing cold Canadian winters, vehicle breakdowns, special guests, bailing out all kinds of crazy obstacles that. Have happened on tour. But amazing like I said, they never missed a show, very unique business model for wrestling and Danny explains how he's not only been able to make it work. But also how he's managed to grow his company and add more cities, the tour Pre Corona and hopefully post your own as well. So here we go. Thirty wrestling shows in thirty days starts now talk is Jericho. Right so Friend of Mine Jimmy Jacobs text via few months ago. And let me know that he was on a tour of Canada. Very interesting to her and I want to talk about that with the. People behind it and that's hotshot Danny Dugan here and Aj Sanchez is also on board You guys are both Winnipeg guys. Yes. Sir Born and raised. Yes. Sir. So it's really cool to be key. You guys basically did a tour of thirty shows. Basically. In thirty days. Yeah. We just finished a thirty one and that that's pretty common. Do a couple year ranging from thirty to thirty eight across the country. That's amazing. And the reason why really appealed to me is I would've loved something like that. When I was first starting because that's that's not easy to do especially with all the traveling and all that sorta stuff what gave you the idea to try something like that. I started when the tour, we were just running monthly events out of the city, of Winnipeg, and as you know being from Canada, there's not a lot of wrestling opportunity for wrestlers in central western Canada to not only get on the road and travel and make a living here in the country, but to networking, get out and make opportunities for themselves elsewhere. So we thought it'd be provided enough worked for the guys you're to stay Polish and have enough work to appealing. For guys you come in from other territories, hopefully, our guys will be connected with some towel Becky, get him out here and there work would improve. That's kind of what was visualized before started putting it all together. So you guys both train in Winnipeg. Yes. Sir riddling trained on our by the name of Jim Swan, and then a little bit later with hotshot. Johnny. Life that much you, AJ? Yeah. Well, I, I would use the term training a very loose manner But I had a trade with the local mean rob stardom, and then how how will work on divide and has well a little while later in my career okay. Because it's funny because he mentioned Gene Swan was in Winnipeg working when I was working with one of the Condello guys for sure it's. It's funny because I know. You guys both worked with Kenny Omega as well. Yeah Jenny started probably about a year or two before I did and I got an opportunity to do a lot of traveling with him early in his career and we get some some tagging stuff. You're me the first couple years of our operations as well. So he's somebody who knows very well, who is a young Kenya Mega like? Barbara the channel may not much has changed in that sense and he's kind of been guys kind of gone to the you know the beater zones rahm and has been very adamant that he wants to do things his way and your style of professional wrestling and he's kind of stay true to that through his entire career and gotten where he is today. Yeah I mean that's Easy definitely hit the nail on the head for that I WANNA get to it's it's cool that the winnipeg wrestling because I say just the fact that you guys are there and doing these tours I really WANNA get into that but I think if you take people always talk about Canadians being great wrestlers and they always go back to Calgary and I'm like absolutely not Winnipeg is the home of the best wrestlers if you took. The four Best Russ's from Winnipeg, they would easily beat the four best dresses from Calgary even if you're talking like Jericho Omega Piper and don callous take those four percent. That's like that's like that's been a big communist perception of it for a long long time just stampede company more prominent Canadian promotion fans upside Canadian wrestling bubble the get that recognition and and get that same but unlv dating over the last ten fifteen. Twenty. Years I would put the top Winnipeg wrestlers on an independent level against any level of challenge in any other part of the country and we'd come up on top who's there now because if you're talking about, you know the Canadian guys always go back to you know like I mentioned with twenty and it was don calluses time and then there was teaching crews and and and Jean Swan and you know you mentioned a. Red Best Junior and L. Flip Oh and two and captain. Jones and Stan socks and all those type of guys who's on the scene. Now that that's working quite regularly watch some capacity. All those guys you mentioned are still kicking around rather be just stopped by and then giving advice to the talent or still performing themselves from that era guys are still performing out wildland purple is going on your forty four as A. Professional Wrestler and he has signed despoiling down he's definitely moving very slow so slow in that capacity, but he still has eight years out of my think he believes. He writer the came back from some some back surgery and he's back in the ring for the first time in years. I believe that someone you probably encountered in the WFW A day for sure. Dr Marty Gold being all all you guys are still kicking around some that. We've been at Dave Broda in a battle royal at sixty something years old couple of weeks ago I was just GonNa ask that he's the he the very first tour I ever did was I was doing the ring crew and Caveman Broda and Brian Jewel and I were the were on the ring truck and broke a use to He would go into grocery stores and take the labels off cans and then go to the front and I want discount on this because I don't know what it is and they would give them a discount. So we had a whole Duffel bag full of silver tin cans and he didn't know what was in any of them. So it'd be like you want something to eat sure what I don't know. spor could being a it's corn. And I wouldn't be surprised if you're not doing that in two thousand, nine, hundred, right he also was the first guy who ever dropped a neon me from the top rope and I remember just being terrified like he went to the top rope and he jumped off and the the knee started small big deals like the size of Godzillas foot to be, and then of course. Didn't even touch me and I was just like, oh my gosh, he's great. The. Most fascinating storage Amir's there's ever a time key member was it's real. So, let's talk about what pays a fine wrestling tradition As you mentioned, you know and and we all grew up fans and you know the different generations and you mentioned you basically put on this tour to give the guys some work and yourself I'm sure how do you go about booking a thirty show tour in thirty days I just we started about four or five months out luckily no doing it for years. Now, we've got the pieces in place across the country. But when we first started, we'd little five or six, and then once we got those five or six down, we start adding an extra couple of markets along the way and take a risk on them. Once we kind of saw it on the on the home based front and from there essentially like the way it works nor frustrated to be successful as we is only Brown in. Thirty plus challenge it's actually really amazing if you really break down the amount of people out of work and effort that go into making this happen but it's really kind of an old school model in the sense that we've got local promoters or woeful wrestlers directly each shootings local markets that are going out and securing sponsorship, getting the tickets to the outlets, putting up the posters, securing media, and I'm kind of at the helm just. Kind of giving direction where things need to be and when they need to get done and just trying to find reliable trustworthy people that have a passion for wrestling that wants to come to their town and do well we come back on a regular basis because there's not a lot of major league wrestling coming up to a lot of these parts of Canada You know w not stopping by way burns scheduling or service Manitoba. Anytime. Getting really excited for the opportunity to get from big stars coming to their town amperage irregular basis. So more times are not meeting you find a good good global algae and get things done for us and it's kind of trial by the town's going GonNa work and if it does fix on a schedule is not we we give the boot trying to find something else and just you're growing and? Just looking at at your list here and it's Portas the Perry oak leg, your Creighton Scotch on hitting a lot of the farm towns, Prince Albert's esten red deer, Edmonton's bigger town. Obviously you through the squamish Kamloops in Calgary like you said wavering schedule Regina Cirrus Morgan Thunder Bay Elliot Lake Kirk Lake I. Mean Geez. Man. You can put. You're putting a lot of a lot of miles here. How do you guys travel each day? We ever ran the car like A. Bunch pounds in a cloud guard. So to speak arranged you've got a couple of extra vehicles on the road crandon and go and it's very, very much to traditional territory wrestling's keeping costs down trying to keep as much money in the bank as possible to keep on moving forward and a part of why you seen. So many of those small farms downs. So to speak on the schedule is the as you know, the geography is so spread out You know if you go to the American, the American side of things you go to any. Major major city in the US, you can hit ten major cities of three hour radio right you can't quite do that here just being Winnipeg Regina six hours away nearly one, hundred, fifty, thousand people. So you kind of need to connect your dots along wages for can be economical in order to be able to travel and wrestle every day and make most of your dad smile was to naked financially viable to do. So that's kind of how it all kind of put together a a ring truck that goes with us. Well Yeah, we've got a range. Of the big trailer behind it and it's going down gallons us. So to me the interesting thing about this is there's always whenever you're traveling. You know especially remember back in those days. there's a car will break down. You know a wrestler will go missing because he had too much to ninety four whatever may be do you ever have been a? Day to day to day if that ring truck breaks down or for the car breaks down, I mean have you ever had anything like that happen Oh man yeah that happened not this. I just passed a couple weeks ago but but you would have happened in the spring had three ring trucks no down some of them being in the middle of announcing in the middle of nowhere. So some shows are at risk of being cancelled Luckily, we're able to get your rental or somebody will pick up the trailer on short notice which would. Have the show start late but still happen other times. It wasn't GonNa make it there at all and we had a stretch by a local promoter stiffness rental just to make sure show stepped on going at night. You didn't have to refund people in rescheduled today. So most definitely happened, it's a reality of what we deal with especially with the Canadian travel tedium roads are. Not being up to snap especially in the northern parts of the promises it's It's a reoccurring thing and like you mentioned wrestlers eighty partying a little too much and had a little too much to drinks during communist well, such with the equation to how do you how do you sort everybody out like if you're saying everyone's traveling together like, are you able to the lemmings? Wrestlers. Are you have a lobby call and everybody has to be there on time and you leave sort of thing? Yeah. That's that's the only engineer probably touched on he's kind of my lead form and so to speak in terms of how the crew is coordinated especially, how big it's gotten and how much responsibility I have to take on. To Day, we're just media and sponsors and the venue and such but that that's pretty much it. You're you're giving kind of your your designated vehicle you're traveling in end whoever's running that lead on vehicle. He's going to tell you what time to be there, and if you're their greatest not you'd better find another way to get the swamp SPEC-. Tell us more about that Aj. How do you? How do you kind of lead the charge there? Yes. So I just wanted to touch more on the just real quick on the on the vehicles breaking down. That was one time where we had to go from regular back to some small towns in the sketch pickup vehicle to try and get the Grande Prairie Alberta on onto towards ago at literally a sixteen hour overnight drives after a show in red gear just to try and make it to the next game grand prairie was. You know it was ridiculous. Yeah touching on we'll call time essentially Danny that's a call time and. At this rate you know we're all adults that we just hope that everybody's going to make it to the next town essentially I think. It used to be a bit more strict media couple of years ago when when we're toward as long as call kinds of meaner at a certain time, unfortunately, some adults are. Able to make those call times I'm more or taking their time doing certain things but it's a ring crew and the guys get in the ring truck and get there and they set up and sometimes guys rates, and that causes frustrations of course but at the end of the day everything seem somehow I don't know how to seem to. Make, make themselves workout and the shows. Cancelled until yet on any of his tours by several several breakdowns talk about how the road travel actually works to these tours and we'll get into that. But I don't want you to hear about my one two punch to deal with pain and muscle soreness after a w matches I'm using Oh Max Crou- free cbd rule on coupled with the brand new olmecs crypto free CD advanced joint defence supplement.

Where we're keeping costs down sometimes we're we're you know we got a Nice Hotel sponsored encounter that we're staying at, and there's other times in major markets where some of the boys were were shacking up with the boys or now you know you have airbnb which is highly popular and a good viable option on the road. So it's really grabbed eggs things every single night we're going. So whatever's the? Most cost effective keep us I guess as much money in the bank as possible and keep moving forward. So there's times is four of CRANDON. A really really crappy hotel room and nipple on Manitoba just a couple of bucks go to the next day and you just keep on moving forward suits either the money goes to the hotel next rooms remember everyone's comfortable or does your Watson you the next day? Old School wrestling, touring there for sure right right. Are you responsible for paying for the hotels for the guys yonder present at first and foremost? We try to go in and and getting a sponsor written luckily, we were very blessed to have a lot of sponsors across the country that Kinda take care of those accommodations for us but there's not always that that and we're going into a talent especially in new market you haven't established ourselves yet. So yeah, we're. We're covering out-of-pocket. So once again, that's when you're cramming guys keep the expenses down. So when you're going I mean understand if you mentioned you cirrus and Niba Wa is usually probably a community center that you go. But when you're doing winnipeg or Calgary or Edmonton bigger cities where where you perform where you put the show's on a lot of times, we're redoing it just different local events centers and there's a lot of different popular events centers now in Winnipeg and. Our but it's is very much into wrestling at his core. We're doing school gymnasiums were doing legions were doing community centers and everything in between pretty much anywhere. We can set up a rank and relieving accommodated the rain set a low post replaces with low ceilings that's necessary. So we All are to make sure if there's a hall in town and it's affordable to do we can get a wrestling ring in there. What kind of crowd getting the tell me your biggest crowd and your smallest man it's really grabbed day like. Trying to new markets, they'll be times. Oh, have thirty people in an audience, and then you get settled are bigger markets like if they thunder bay. From five to seven, hundred people. So it's really gonNA vary week to week and and for the most part, it's pretty consistent where you're hit matt no anywhere from from two fifty to five hundred, and then from there you're having the ones that just completely shipping data your wrestling in front of you know you know there's more guys in the locker rooms than there isn't a crowded. You just gotTa scratch that what are still listening keep on moving forward the smallest crowd I had was seven. Seven people in Rimi Elbert so you might want to stay away from Rimba. That's one of those ones like you said like you can like working in front of a big crowd is way easier than working in front of a small one. When You get those sparse crowds of twelve fifteen people. They're not rested their one of twelve people that were stupid enough to draw this. Yeah, and they're. They're they're they're not They're not overly excited to be trying to make noise and make the people at didn't either so it definitely is a challenge but the ones that you invest in the Fund I saw golf down minus the envelope at the end of the night. When. You could see each individual person in the crowd. That's you bad. Like others the guy in the. Red Shirt and there's a lady and there's a kid and that's about it. So when you're when you're. Paying the guys, Danny is it a weekly check that you do? Is it nightly? Are you offering guarantees for the tour? Is it kind of a percentage thing? How do you budget that? Stately off the gate. So That's how we've been able to keep on growing as a company and keep on adding more markets is now doing this for eleven years I've got a very, very good crew that's that's understanding of vision and understanding of the model we're trying to build. So we're able to kind of take chances and do those. Thirty eight thousands of fifteen to town or schedule. We're guys are getting paid based on how the show does that night. So we go in, be build up the town and we're doing good business. It's reflective of of everyone's envelope at the end of the night but at the same time, if we go into town and it doesn't do very well. I'm not at risk by not having a guarantee out by losing thousands of dollars in the company possibly kind of being put under ray or a really bad for the weeks. Calm. So Luckily, usually more times than not it's not every time balances out yonder guys come out really well ahead and doing great for themselves and they keep on coming back but there's there's definitely some nights for you're probably looking. Up here in, Canada might have fifty in the middle member. And how do you? How do you judge that like? Did you tell the guys will give you a percentage or we'll give you one percent of the game that specific about it or is it just kind of like you just to kind of divvy it up at the end of the night in which way you feel the guys that kind of the bigger names on the show or that sort of thing. Like, we usually have a tour headliner like we'll have somebody come in who's got some former Devenir ww TV experience that comes in as the draw for us. You know that person's working off a guaranteed to be were, but everybody else is kind of working together as a team to build it. So if it's divvied up pretty evenly, you know there being here and there for guys who do the extra work on the road but it very much is an honor system and officials system set in place but the guys aren't stupid. They can look into the audience showed Weller said didn't and kind of based on the sponsors and how how things are trying to put together an the now. Show. Me The money or not. There really hasn't been much trouble or any discrepancy in that case where people are like, Hey, you're Kinda of shorter new tonight. The House is good. We had a very Burgas, welcome Aj how is it for you doing like thirty shows and thirty days even as a performer. With all the bumps that you're taking and that sort of thing. So you know what that it can be on on the body I've been working out about seventeen years. So I've. Learned to that You know maybe what we saw that twenty and in school. But I'm not taking a bump every night or keeping them to a minimal still working hard obviously. But. I mean. You're essentially you're you're on the you know how it is. You're you're making a living and China. You know make a go at this. But I've as I've gotten older. I've gotten smarter about you know picking where picky much longer and making sure I've not. You know get dropped on my head every night. I'm also a pretty big guy. So if I don't WanNa, fall I will definitely not. Now, but that's the thing I remember doing that I mean with with with with Lance and with with Dr Luther and you know you're almost having comedy matches which are just as entertaining as high spot matches anyways and like you said, when you got twenty people in there, there's fifteen kids just to you know, yell at the bad guys it's really not as hard as as people. Make it out to be to have a good show by not taking any bumps most definitely, and you can notice when guys are are part of a crowd like that and they're having fun and and I think the people that are better in attendance kind of realized like hey they're having fun. Why don't we have fun and it translates I mean I'm sure you're aware of that. So. When we and that's we're, we're really we have a lot of top professionals that come in. You know you mentioned like Jimmy Jacobson Wrestling for twenty years we got a lot of guys from ring of honor that come up. That are so excited. You don't have to work the ring of, Honor Style and working traditional you're. Getting a wrestling style on some of these small towns that they don't get the opportunity to down south. But it really such a difference when you're dealing with professional the posted guys that are. Just starting out or don't have that Polish because there have been jurors where you're working with guys that are very grain just looking for an opportunity and they're coming up New York taking the shit out of you every night and that adds dump that for ten fifteen twenty days. But we just previous where we did after thirty days I legitimate one, another thirty and not focus left because. Every single night with guys or so. So Professional. College Colleges Bang on that don't need physically run dour be jumped. To get over you over. So really really really helps having a professional talk crew kind of take. Jeremy. Tonight as as part of the body LV. Yeah, and you said something. I did Germany back in ninety three and it was six weeks. Six shows a week I think we got Mondays off and it was the same city Hamburg every night and I'll tell you what at the end of that six weeks or three we three or four weeks then I was really good because like you said, you're you're you're thinking every night. You're working physically overnight, but mentally psychology put together matches. It was different there because you're. In the same building every night she had to change stuff up because he had the same fans coming to see it because it was a tournament but the frequency of that was really sharpen my skills and I felt really really good after that that six weeks was done. Yeah. You notice like especially like me work independence and I I. Know It's probably been a very long time Dunklin But like in stays today's little independent wrestling. So many guys wrestling a few times a month, and if a major difference getting in a ring with somebody who's only going, you know four or five times a month oppose the guys that are on the road during many times a week every month of the year and is a drastic difference in ability, and sometimes it's just not getting those. Guys from developing and when you're in the ring with guys that good every single day. I can understand why you know the rest of the eighties and the nineties or so tell it because when wrestling that often the talented guy, you don't pick it up to learn how to do it like. Something off of you and you should probably find another profession because it's fairly simple as you get with the right my leave. Ready to go. Obviously, the guys have mercy. Do they did they sit at the Mercer Table D do meet and greets before I, remember condello us through the Polaroid's after the show. Are you doing anything like that? Yeah, that's honestly the bread and butter on these tours and most of us come out you know do enrolling financially posting while you're getting paid each night it's definitely virgin still very prominent today. Right from the and greet you know you're you're charging the extra. Premium, on the ticket for propel coming to meet the entire crew ahead of time. So you officers getting back towards cost and then the boys opportunity to sell directly to the audience, and then most of them are going to for the general admission as well. Then backed out at the intermission the show. So you know everyone's back in their shirts and their fixtures and that's where that money's being made. For you AJ doing good merch on the shows because I know a lot of times when you go to these towns. Fans no debbie or Awa the TV are they excited the wrestling's down or they buy merch house outgoing for you? So I, generally work as a heel. So my sales are probably not nearly as good as they are but who works in the baby things but I find It's the turnaround. So we do a thirty plus so tour and then come back the next time or a couple months later on the next door I find. After people got the opportunity to kind of see me were you know relationships kind of built and I find coming into town prize the second or third time is when my merch sales kinda tend to go up again the as a heel I'm out selling as much as a top baby anger but it. Goes a long way in making sure that these tours are financially profitable we and that's I can see that for sure because when you're like if you're going on on on getting paid off the gate and if you do have two hundred people there, you know the merge that you sell could be almost as much as you pay off is if not more. Catering vendor very loyal and very supportive, and and it doesn't matter which part of the country and that's how the the is continue to build. As as we get people in the door, we've got a very high rate of keeping their income part of the family that part of the push for the grassroots movement with von growing, and they're bringing more people us your sponsors and the town, and I, think, they haven't understanding that goes a long way for guys being successful on the road as well, and they're very very giving that sense where a lot of people are very supportive, not next toward the bottom line. And, these guys doing it and do it more. So for that reason, just as much as they do you know having merchandisers collectible to you go back to the same towns every two like you said, you drop the the bad ones but is the majority kind of a little bit of a circuit that you're putting together. Yeah. So that's already mentioned that we just finished. That's pretty much the circuit were running right now you know, and then we found that don't do all kind of the following jewelry and try something else around town that we nosy be really successful some kind of piggyback if it doesn't do well. Emotional and that's the way we we're prominently running Manitoba's sash avert up about three years and in the last year and a half the expanded further into eastern Jerry, and we just did our first events this year in Toronto and Ottawa and announced their debut in Montreal coming up in the New Year, and then we just started going out west as well. GOING TO CRINGE GEORGE BE? Siebel laid busy and just at first shows this year as well in like Vancouver area. So we're trying to cover go coast to coast because that's one one being candid never link provided as a as a wrestling organization is then its own national touring company. We always you back wwe or WCW whatever the hot air brand is. Kind of getting it by association. So we've never really had our own representation of national touring company and we're trying to fill that void and trying to make some history of the process. I think it's a great idea man like I said, just the fact that we're talking on the show now it's such a unique idea and an original idea and I didn't realize that you did it. Regularly. I'm sure those guys coming out of the woodwork trying to get booked on on these tours now. It's like as a wrestler, I always try to being you know respectful of back that I I like to try to get a response from every promoter that I reach out to We should never the case so I try to be as respectful as possible and get back as many guys. I. Can it gets pretty overwhelming out of the running as they do because there's nobody. To be running has any dates back back anymore you know maybe throughout the year? Yes. But not insure three individual tourist wrote year. So we're really hitting up by all ends. The truly this year, we have the talent representing several different. All of your in Canada. So people coming from all over the world I think as much as Katie wrestling's been kinda put on the backburner in some people's mind is still very much respected as a great wrestling country. So get results by a lot of people from international countries that want the opportunity to wrestle in Canada, the physically great wrestling tradition and heritage here. So a lot of guys reach out with that. Hope in my thinking participate in Canada in wrestle dislike the arts and in yourself in Benoit's extra. So retired people literate now. So how do you put together the roster then what really in this day and age three losses guys that come in and they're gonNA, are the movements. So he got us and doing you know ten, twenty, twenty, she'll Jewish and level right now at the heart of the team and healthy grow to this level where it's now being financially beneficial for guys I, try to take them first and foremost and make sure they're invited back and their schedules available to do. So always have an opportunity to come back and do it, and for whatever reason whether it be availability or injury. Found, it takes a out of the game, the restart opening up the books and seeing who's been a out and who to be benefit, and whether that be you know somebody with some great veteran experience, whatever part of the world that can add some different flavor to the tour for someone from another country that could possibly come in and be a benefit to the crew of both as a wrestler order network to get guys out. Kind of where we're going first and foremost, or we just see somebody with a lot of potential that we know is going to be a big star. We'd like to get our hands on them and get up fingerprint on them before they go on do some other stuff as well when. You mentioned it I know you had who've intrude on this tour, do tribe with a top level match or who've you work with with your best guy and how do you get the main event for the show? So generally speaking when when someone, like who would suit or any of the other headliners that they come in? Very on the market if we're going into some of the smaller markets. Some of the small fess cashier Manitoba markets usually where we're GONNA get right younger guys on card opportunity to work with them. We can see the smaller smaller crowd less pressure and it's not gonNa make or break the brand if it doesn't go well and needs between better for next time. So that's usually the challenger doing that but we're going into Winnipeg Thunder Bay or Calgary Evanston where we know we're. GonNa have a bigger houses and there's more is on us with more regular wrestling fans. That's kind of go in guns blazing clean our best talent there and putting our best name forge. Make sure that keep those people invested in product and make sure we were. You know being competitive with other local groups that are running in the area who used as as headliners before besides movie allow band doesn't I'll? We've gone the Gannet from doing you know legends real. Whatever most successful tours which you know jake the snake Roberts. WHO's a you know a great draw for us up here in Canada and the Great. Mentor. The locker. Room. To The guys Ron Simmons WE'VE HAD MR wonderful. Paul orndorff psychosis of New Age L. Laws, Bill Monroe dog pretty much anyone from any era of eighties or nineties as probably enough. You're at some point in going on close to. Eighty plus w names that have been up his way onto her on multiple events at some point. So we try to kind of again at Canada's very back vacuum stuck in kind a little bit in the sense that wrestlers from the eighties or the attitude era snow. Very, very big stars here. So we try to lean on them more times than not to come in and draw you know not only you know the fans but. The add a lot of credibility in terms of dry media attention for us We're going through Western central Canada with a million dollar the Aussie Your Jake, the snake, Roberts or demolition or something of that nature. Wartime not reading up on every local radio station, most TV stations in the newspaper. So we try to lean on those guys. So a lot of that just kind of place brand awareness, and then hope that no people come check the show enjoy local county keep on coming back regardless headliners. So all those guys you mentioned have been on the Thirty Day tours not. Jake Roberts and Mr Wonderful has been on twenty plus day chores. But. This is wonderful. Not Wrestling though actually oddly enough. He wrestled his first match since nineteen ninety three or whatever it was on in. Brandon. Manitoba two years ago we were able to talk engineer near the end of the tour to jump into a six Dan with us and. I went up to Paul. Pretty. Sure. It's going to be a no. You get out of here and said, Hey, we have this idea just and do a six man tag for the main. And he just looked at me and said, well, you better have an extra pair of need. And it was incredible even at sixty plus years old when he got that. Came in and it was nine, hundred, eighty, five, hundred, garden all over again. But for the rest of the tour is just doing like a meet and greet sort of thing. Yeah. Generally speaking when we have the legends that are no longer active in the ring, they're kind of being brought in as a special guest enforcer or they're being a mentor to you know what babies as were grooming and trying to move up the card and being in their corner and then more times or not the yield like Aj, he's probably been on the receiving end of many Mr wonderful or Bronson punches to the face will. Get, mistaken for them, dispute how the finish went down and usually end up getting. Rockford Sudas the Barbara beefcake special guests that one of your tours not too long ago. Thirty shows and thirty days. Let's talk about what that experience was like.

Has Been Anybody that that you had a bad experience with the Cayman, it was a pretty high profile trust chase a couple of years ago. A little over a year ago we have bruce of our review take on tour US yeah and it did not did not go well whatsoever You know just from the mid eighty landed till the minute you decide to take off in the middle of the night after being prepaid on shows and going home and leaving a stranded that was probably the only time it's been really A situation that didn't go well for us in terms of experiences. Yeah. I, read about that as a matter of fact that the Brutus beefcake story in the whole scenario and it's it's it's something that you know as a promoter you have to deal with sadly I remember we did a tour once with Condello. Mardi Gianetti was supposed to be on the tour and he didn't show up. So CADILA, would go. In front of the audience so Maris Yeti is not here. He was busted for drugs at the border and they wouldn't let him in the country. That was his announcement to the crowd every night before before the show. On the enough margin, he was my first no-show to in in two thousand nine when I started. Running Events From nineteen ninety, two, thousand, nine. Winnipeg rock-n-rollers. Brother with the beefcake situation he he left before the end of the tour. How do you deal with that? But well, luckily. The few markets that were last we built. In a couple of them so they were very understanding. We announce the audience was going to be there that he opted to go home and we're truthful about the situation and I know you know being a wrestler in the industry and being promoted by name of any kind of controversy that's GonNa prevent me from having opportunities or prevent you know people for maybe wanting to come up here is understand the situation. So was very, very sticky in the sense that you know money was stolen from us. He left you know in the middle of the night when it was advertised gates didn't tell anybody and let us in a really bad jam. So I felt. The best best route was just honest with people. But what happened here's the situation and I would say ninety nine percent of people were understanding and said great. You know we understand that he wasn't why we are cutting. It was just an extra bonus or garnish that he was going to be there. We're still supportive of what we're doing and we'll. We'll keep on coming out you know unfortunately the. New. Markets on that tour that he didn't show up for and it did some business and in. Our relationship with the media sponsors and things of that nature. So that was one of those shitty situation where you just kinda had eat it spun moving forward and try to build their trust again. But overall luckily, with us, touring as long as we have a lot of these markets, people were very supportive come to work with me or or no meal over the years of the wrestler performer short promoter, and we had a lot of support across Canada with people go. Hey. You know we completely get it. You know whether it was at the Greens or or whether it be at the show itself. You know we had a terrible experience too. So we completely understand and and it really know kind of Ford an entire wave of people that were sharing similar during our events that they had with him network pleasant that I was unaware of and I felt really terrible about as a promoter that was. Taking their money to to give them this opportunity. So luckily, we had a lot of support. People are very understanding. We're able to grow from coupon moving forward eight that shit man like you know. I. Will Why? Why leave with only four days left right? Like if you're GONNA leave leave two weeks out four days left stick it out whatever the problem is or whatever issues adding it's like why why leave so close to the end. That doesn't make any sense you know. And I don't like it was the middle of winter I. Understand it's cold up here he lives. In Florida, you're not mobile guy his age but at the same time you jeff credit, he was drawing a some really good business shirt. He's markets that I know he was making some good money and he was making. Good money you know with your ancient we add and I just didn't understand how somebody who simply of this show up put his. Name on a piece of paper and collect a good sum of cash on a nightly basis when he's not working all that much now to be so angry and bitter every day it was just it was a there was an eye opening experience just how some people you know you know Cedar Life on a day-to-day basis and what makes them happy and what makes them upset because you know it's just to be able to show up and get that kind of recognition about forty or career. And make that kind of money. You think you'd be a great happy for opportunities that were being lot to you for you know both the promoter and NFL fans that are paying too. That was just not the Jason on either end such an eighties thing to do that sort of thing. No shows such a rare thing now but it seems like guys era do it quite often you don't see guys for my generation. No. Showing really unless the side of the coin real astles, but that's very It's very rare thing. No, and then the worst part about it. Wise. I feel guilty. The Kurt horror stories from a few promoters worked four in the past about him I've also heard them about guys like Jack Roberts, who was one of the easiest I've ever worked with WHO degrade business and went above and beyond. So when we versus I said, Hey, you know maybe once he gets up here and he's as a bunch of good brothers on the road just pushing through day to day. Trying to do this, you'll fit in and everything will be fine and that's usually just about anybody that comes up here and it just it just wasn't and it was just really unfortunate to see that he couldn't make the most of his opportunities especially at his book come out around that same time that he was pushing and we're getting on all kinds of national and regional media to promote it and doing such I didn't understand what more could have been done to make his his time. Aj, how is that for you and for the rest of the locker room and you see a guy like that who I'm sure everybody respects acting that way is it demoralizing it or would you guys take it as a lesson learned? So I have a little bit of a different take on the whole situation. I got the ride with Brutus most pretty much every day of that tour and The Guy he was great he. Took care of a bunch of the boys with by Neal's by years at the end of the nights, I don't think I got to see a whole lot of the stuff again he's. In about which may have taken place over the phone or or whatnot. But for the most part other than you know like you just complaining a little bit about the cold and stuff like that. He was great. I had no personal issues I saw none of these issues taking place and like I said, he was taking care of us in the ring trucks. So I have A. Different for me in that aspect. So I had no issues whatsoever within was great for the rest of the big name guys good experiences with all of them I. Yeah. There's not really. Cover. Jake Jake was amazing going to ride and pick your brain for guys are level was leaving I got to a light again with Ronson. I oh. My God I can't say enough good about that man even at one point leaving a small town schedule and myself on and another another man by the name of Alex. Anthony are worker out of the user year area. We're on a tour and you've got pulled over by the cops. We're on the side of the road in small towns Scotch at one point waiting for another officer to come investigate something on the car and the just standing there and getting to. Was Completely Sean Cool and collected about the whole situation and and just just a great man I can't sleep enough. Good. So as far as headliners though I, I personally having been on the ground and works with the set of crew and generally riding the guys had zero issues. They've all been trained and very very giving in. Bars like escalating things and offering advice on a side note that roster story what are the most amazing memories I have of that tour it was actually after the event in estimating and scheduling or cinnabon scheduling, and we're behind them on the highway they realize it as such. But here we are you know blasting through Regina to get to the next show and I looked to my right and there's wrong. He hasn't Alexander lineups. Any please. The side of Canadian highway and that's Visual I will take with me for the rest of the time. Only in wrestling, right? Right. How was I was movie movie was great man and like that was one of those situations where a lot of people warning about what is getting into much brutus maybe even more. So just based on. So I guess past the. People's experiences with him and I knew has really kind of a chance of you know what I was sold But after having goes stuff you're in the spring or did great business for us and having a good response to Conan who we had earlier this year as well. We wanted to deluce train rolling and you know to his credit he was nothing but were fashionable every single day and for you know everything I heard I did not see any of those issues come out of so for that was here for thirty plus days in the call from Mexico go completely. Worked really hard every day and every you don't see Michael was daily short to the events and who the in the rain means training with younger wrestlers and teaching them ensuring and stuff. So He Kinda took on wall as a mentor of year on the road and really embraced it with nothing but professional the entire way through dust. Cool to hear man. Yeah. I always love working with who've you man? He was he was so good you know and and probably still is you know Td. Twenty years ago he's Jaffa up in great shape. We're GONNA Jim Everyday and he looks like he's running for another teeny run. He got dumped a quick story I was just I was scrolling through kind of the beefcake experience but he got to tell the story when you guys did see TV Regina. You recall that what he said. Yeah Oh. Yeah. I understand I remember that that was one of those days I just shook my head going you know gotta come to an end and luckily you did. So we were we it was it was probably the worst travel day on that tour in regards to just kind of you know having a rough it up. We're in Nessin happened night before which the four half five hour drive overnight to Regina Regina is one of those markets that was a real tub go for. US going luckily is one of our stronger markets now, but it's a while there but we were very lucky to be ordered a lot of morning TV time on C. TV Global TV, which are major major news station up here in Canada, especially in Regina and the a Lotta the morning time with Brutus we have to dry overnight from as and hats Regina order to make the appearance. So it wasn't going to be a funding drive was going to be a long night early morning. Agreed to do it, and once we got there you know is if he never agreed to it and he was tied up in all their against his will because he was really just about everybody. What everybody with everybody you know from the new staff to the crew More Times or not booking wrestlers come on the show because they're fans themselves. They just WanNa need them. So it's Kinda. needs to an end but he the coverage they get to meet the year old English watching and we're just miserable just about everyone complains on the copies water nothing was up the standard and then we get on the air. and. People Start asking you will find US online somewhere I'm sure we get on air and you know you're asking them about you know Jim Wrestling now, and what would you say to a young man trying to get into the business they? Dealt businesses dead buying. Another avenue wrestling isn't the way to go the dead industry. On They're going actually no wrestling's great. It's a lot of momentum. It's never been honored. We've gotTA show tonight, Regina. We're going across the country. and He. Tried to sabotage this morning TV, I can't rains and try to try to cover it up. In. My mind that he would go to that extent to to make the drive there then try to blow everybody else in the process. Oh my gosh that's great. It's dead. By the way we have show tonight but don't bother coming. Like. We got. A couple of days later, we had another one, I telling the very dangerous snakes if that was online as well. Every time they asked the question that I felt could be swayed in a direction. I didn't want to just jumped in and answered in for him because of very concerned about that happening again and he realized that got A. Down, a little bit but that's kind of what we're dealing with and it was just it was just stress pence. Stressful tension. Go Day on a daily basis. Who is there some guys? He said some that's so apropos. Like Canada. Is still you mentioned being a time she still loves the eighties. Hogan era wrestlers like just go nuts for them like no, no other country in the world. And Edwards somebody who still follows current wrestling in his current wrestler myself. You know I. Try to spread it out. Bring is from this era well, but from a business and it's never as awarding bringing is from that era and I still these the lasted so many generations or they're just that prominent in that area that parents want to come they wanNA bring their kids to spend his well but they're still officers up here like people for the Jink Mergel Back Jacob. Good. So. People were lined up night after night by yours. I remember thunder being the show we have with Jaco there it was the Maya stiffy that night and people were wind up like over WLAC down the streets waiting for over an hour to get into the Meat Jake. There was just absolutely insane people that late for professional wrestling in general but versus in person Nineteen at a wrestling show the stock of what you Aj because Danny said, you've quit store yourself and we'll get to that after a friendly reminder from our friends at Nitsa helping to keep us all safe on the roads. It can be a little frustrating especially if you're in a hurry running late, find yourself at a railway crossing waiting for the train, and if the signals are going in the trains, not even there yet you may feel tempted to try and sneak across the tracks. Well, don't do that ever to the naked eye trains often appear to be. Further away and moving slower than they are and they cast up quickly even if the engineer hits the emergency brakes right away, it could take a train over a mile to stop. That's over one mile to stop by that time. It's too late and the result could be a potentially deadly crash point is you can't know how quickly the train will arrive. The train can't stop quickly even if it sees, you could end in major disaster. So the signals are on the train is on its way and you just need to remember one thing stop because trains can't. Let's talk about you. Jane. Danny told me you had a pretty bad crash was that during one of these tours it was not know it was it was all my family runs a business here locally. So I was heading home from work onto a pretty serious head on. Car Collision. Thousand Fifteen and so. Was it one of those career enders at first sort of thing it? It has sort of put me on the shelf about fourteen months iodine shattered my hip fractured my pelvis broke wrists broke a hand a knows Where they're a bunch of fun stuff and then even while in the hospital had a blood clot just prior to surgery blood clot, almost go into my long or or my heart or whatever it was. So the communist chauffeur in hostels about six weeks, recovery and all that on the shelf fourteen months and doctors explained that because of the surgery dot steel and ends in my APP and my wrist and my hands and. It's sad that you probably should not do anything physical because I got no cartilage left in my hip. So it's essentially bone on bone. So I wasn't sure how things are gonNA. Go after time and was just kind of taking by date and then to Rehab and all that fun stuff I started feeling quite good and and getting Jim and and feeling good doing all that stuff running and whatnot. So I decided to test the waters after about fourteen months and get some shows out now verte and Ever since then I've applied in the busiest, I ever have been with these tour staving off and then bustling at least one hundred times a year give or take go ask couple years. That's great. So it didn't affect you overall these still feeling good in the ring. Go feeling all right Other than getting a little late in gaining a couple pounds I'm still able to do all the stuff that you know was that all he's able to do essentially a pretty big guy hundred and sixty pounds. I'm still able to do backflips and all that fun stuff. So it hasn't really affected me in the rain just yet a couple of years down the road will be saying something a little different but so far so good. So I can complain. So as we start to wind down here, I mean like I said great concept and a really appreciate and respect the fact that you do this I wish I wish you were around. Twenty five years ago when I was on the local scene because I would've been signing up for every single one of these things. On a bigger basis for both of you guys have you had WB tryouts have you worked in the states What's your overall aspirations? Do you want to continue to forge your own identity with CWA? Are you looking to try and get booked in another other places are a little bit of vote for myself. I I've been wrestling. Now will be seventeen years coming up next month and I've been very blessed I. Have I been doing work with? W. I actually did a segment with you on television couple years back with you Kevin O. Rawlins's security guard doing four-part stuff. I've done. Like four three years ago in Minneapolis, we did a full part in got knocked over by guys was nice you. You're great. Very nice. Actually, I actually told the story how like how good of an experience that was in the sense of just minimal and unimportant as our role was as an extra in as a security guard just learning psychology of war body needs to be for the cameras to catch your facial and things of that nature was a really good rewarding experience Just take away and bring back home and then put your pocket for another day. But I I've been very very like. Two thousand ten I'm used pretty regularly in the mid West move when they do extra work there I've done a dark nancy no prior to smackdown as well done a PC trial of I've been lucky enough to go to Japan a few times and do some work with ring of honor. So former I still stay like very motivated driven that. Want. You continue pushing forward and be successful as as a professional wrestler first and foremost But at the same time this thing taking off and then gained much traction as it is. It's got my attention as well and it's kind of you know they always say to have a backup plan I know they probably have a back or anonymously backup plan. But just being able to promote tours and provide for myself and my family. If I can get, you need to do that in the meantime pursuing you know things that are professional wrestler as well. Open up doors. I'm definitely happy doing that as well. How about you AJ Yeah. So I've had the opportunity I've worked You know all throughout Canada down in the US and then in two thousand, twelve I got the opportunity to go down and train Mexico to play. And as far as like present day, you know wrestling's kind of paying the bills right now. So just trying to stay as business basel, but if something. Bigger opportunity or more ever popped up You know I would not be opposed to try that as obviously the window for something like that is starting to close as time goes on so I've just looking. Busy and like I said, restaurants paying the bills. So it is better have you guys worked for Tony Condello before. Danny, would you say? Fortunately yes. Yeah I gotTA. I want is. Disney d'etre with Omega WanNa see two, thousand four only interesting about a year and then either referee last minute what went in refereed that's who are. Like I really, seriously. Tony and seeing the Working Cardi that you've become a legend for and From there I I probably done individual shows for him and FIS Jones on, Nafa. Two, thousand, twelve, thirteen. You know here but it's been awhile since he still does pop up and show his face once in a while but he's not running as accurately as he wants to was I was the death to her for you. He's gone on record saying who the worst one in in debt to our history. Oh No. Yeah I think Omega would probably. Say the same thing we're on our way to her first show and it was downhill from there for the tours release who are on the road whatever it was as we were in two different cargo vans and we'll driving up to do the I reserve the band went through a free. What's the ice in the creek and got stopped? And we're in the middle of nowhere I think five or six hours away from the last time you saw civilization and This van got stuck in the creek. There is no getting it out. So one of the vans have to drive back. And try to go get help or get another vehicle while Omega Leave Darren Dalton and a few others spend just sit in this band sitting in ice on top of the screen just hoping it didn't go any further that they would come back when he gets mauled by bears and had to sit there for about. Ten hours or whatever it was until they finally turn around and come back in and get us were able to get another vehicle. So for the remaining two or three weeks of that tour, we had you travel on top of the Reagan inside a cargo. Van. Those three weeks before laying on top. And not maps and you know Jerry Cans and you're not trying to pass the is rose as the as it is our bumpy for free ways for just driving up and down bumping our backs in our heads. Feel radiance review tired sure. So. That's and There's a few other actions went along way without that was. The norm or what you stuck in going into their debts, who all four of that you were going into it. I was lucky. The only the only death through that I ever did was during the summer and there's action the promoter was Bob Holiday Doc, Holliday and Once. Again, I mentioned being on the ring truck with Broda and Brian Jewel I also had to travel on top of the of the ring as it was stacked and Brian Jill did drive very fast and there was quite a few times Lebron's Face planted the roof of the van. A few times, and then the best of all was. Brian Joel he's driving on. It was the dirt roads as you go up to those reserves If you're not traveling over the ice in the winter, you're traveling on super long dirt roads in the summer and he goes take the wheel like what he goes take the wheel like I'm sitting in the back and he gets up while we're driving about seventy kilometers an hour and makes me takeover he basically stands up holds one hand on the wheel as I hold one will we do a quick switcheroo and if that wasn't bad enough about twenty minutes later I look and he's on top of the and look in the review and he's on top of the ring jacking off. And I was sitting. In the ring. True I want to get in the business on like. Am I sure this is the business I wanted to get into. View indisputable. The two of us and Bro Caveman Broda. He was probably just sleeping or had seen it. So many times he didn't sell it at all. Absolutely credible and that's The. Doing the depths who are like because it's being talked about it and you know edge and Christian talked about and things I need to become like a badge of honor for wrestlers to go and and do this thing and if I ever get. The guys thinking about or am I. Really don't need sue. UNLESS, you're really greening just need the works and he rests in life stay far away from if there's not a lot of benefit from it, you'll financially viable and then the the conditions are awful like you mentioned minus you know luckily enough to deal with the masturbation on top of the rain. Traveling ours was rough enough and then you get some towns you're know you're not. You'RE GONNA. Jim Matt in. You know in the school gym there's Yoga three or four days without a shower and he'll for the tour we did because traveling on the range gas cans, we just reach like gasoline on and label unable to bathe you're not eating right. So let's you really wanted. You know mark. Hey I. Did this and I got through it. But you know as a professional, you probably don't need to if you've got a busy schedule and you're picking up enough work elsewhere because you're going to probably come back though thirty hours later in Navy blue some hair on the process I much rather do your tour. Last couple of questions for you when you're talking about the tours, what's your game plan for the next few years? Every hour game plan is changes to try to expand further east without limit now, going Vancouver if only further in the ocean. So we're GONNA, just keep on our focus on on on growing and trying to get out to the maritimes were hopeful. You know we've gotta give local promoter on work that game you and if that goes well, that's a nice base Russell chief on moving forward east and. Continues to go as plan that will hopefully be popping up in the mirror and Newfoundland and things of that nature in the next couple of years But in the meantime on the home, front where we just continues to grow and that's trying to you know the struggle with independent wrestling is you know you're dealing with independent wrestling you're dealing with an independent wrestling budget. So in order to get the word out there to masters in very cost, you know very costly and not always cost effective. So we just gotTA KEEP On hitting the ground and just you having good shows and hope that great count on coming up I represents the brand well, and just hope groundswell takes off a little bit faster than it is. Now we can hopefully see you know some benefit you know just wrestling bloom right now parts of the world and you two of these tours ear or three we did we did to this year will probably be doing three next year screaming great final question for you AJ. What's your favorite mass that you've ever had? Oh, boy. There are so many. One of the masters that stick out for me was on one of the tours in. In the show in. In Ontario, northern towns, I don't recall but it was me and my brother who was also working at the time we got to have a match without road Dogg and Billy, Gunn, and I don't Know Ju- probably one, hundred, fifty, two, hundred in this particular town and billion enrolled dog were arguing all day about how he always gets to do the comeback and wrote always has to take the heat and. Whatnot so Like, Hey, how about tonight become back So after arguing roadlog Finally got the got what he wanted. He got to do the to hit the comeback for the Bachelorette night and he came to US earlier in the in the names that, Hey, I'm gonna hit buildings comeback as I'm doing this I'm going to be doing everything billy does will end on on his finish. And I said Yeah. No problem. So minutes later after we had left the room billy comes in like I what did that hotel you and we're like well, this is what he wants to do. All right. Here's what we're GONNA do when you hit the famous are kicked out at one, and then we'll finish the match however. So role dogs running the comeback on myself and my brother and he's doing is looking at billy, you Italy flipping them off and laughing at the whole time. So we're we're having tons of fun all this is going on the road. It's famous her looks at billy puts them off, pins me, and then I out at two and row dog just bursts out laughing on all fours. Can't control his blaster. Go goes out like slaps dillion pags on billy comes in it's finish one-two-three. Even, across is doing his laughing over top of my brother. Wrote Johnson alborn building runs out which. Ends up having billy hit my brother in the states and plunges nose and all that fun stuff like that match. Match always sticks out to me and I might be online I. Don't recall them asking about the just because they were so so giving and so so great odds getting to work with them as much as we got was was an absolute blessing and we got to learn a lot and then just having that story to go with. There's so much more, but that's one that's that sticks out for me. Would you Danny Man if i? Had for my senior matches meeting for me as a fan would probably be getting opportunities to wrestle matches against guys like Jake, and Hash ause you're dug in and things of that nature. Had national a million times better than all of those that were more. Business driven and in health drowsy for us with. An angle but for free as a you know as an individual, my favorite mash, the probably working with guys with the easiest nationals in the world and as somebody who grew up as a wrestling fan, you know my entire life this is the only thing I wanted to do you know as much as you come. With being in the business for to become just the ordinary every game thing to do still. Pretty cool. Across. The rink from a guy like Jake. Roberts in ten minutes later you're taking a d. and the crowd goes crazy and it's like those kind of cool knowledge senator validate kind of way about his. And kind of fired a your whole career i. Want one of those massive specifically as some of my favorite screaming well, like I said, much respect. You guys for doing these tours and a very excited that that you are. It's great for the boys. It's great for the fans and you get in some good on it too. So congratulations on on creating something new something different, which is what you have to do to to make it in this business. So I think it's a great idea in all. All respect for me for sure. You ever want to do and we'll make sure there's spot in the ring for you. I'll quit after four shows. Boys, stay safe on the road and the thanks thanks for for doing this year. Thank you.

Hockey superfans gear up for Oilers-Jets Stanley Cup playoff matchup

"I told the court to use one small man giant wheel. I did wish say official that. I'm wrongfully imprisoned right now. Uncover season seven dead wrong. They actually killed tipple. It might be not available. Cbc listen and wherever you get your podcasts. This is a cbc podcast walk. The carpet sends. Arthur leon draisaitl and bryce saddle at the open. This went away and it will be a three point night for connor mcdavid as leon draisaitl. We'll get the empty-netter netter was a good night for the edmonton oilers. Three one. Victory against the winnipeg jets in their last match up of the nfl's regular season and the oilers will no doubt be looking to do the same again tonight but with much higher stakes it is game one of the first series of the stanley cup playoffs jets versus oilers since nothing takes your mind off a global pandemic quite like playoff hockey. I'm joined by two super fans. Jackie bonder has been a die hard oilers fans since she was three years old has a twitter handle dedicated to the team. Gregg burnett has aboard and breadwinner jets fan who has in his possession. The organ from the original jets arena both have converted their basements into fan caves for their respective teams. And both join us now. Good morning warning. Jackie described the cave. Well there's a lot of jerseys down here. I'm just sitting in here looking around but there's a lot of jerseys we've got it's not just the oilers. It's it's mostly the oilers but we've got autographed pictures from you know older players. We've got a replica stanley cup. We've got pillows and blankets and all kinds of our grant. Fuhr mask like we. It's ridiculous what we have going on down here and when you go down into the cave. Does the cave make you feel happy. As soon as i opened the door to the basement there's pictures and oilers symbol. And it's like this is where i need to be all the time greg. Does that sound familiar. It does there. What is with the oregon. You have the oregon from from the jets arena. Yeah i've got very close friends. Day on on a sports are in one big fordline oven grill and their They have an affiliation. The friends with mark tim Being that the own a sports bar he on has his oregon. I guess he had nowhere to put. It kept when he tore down the old barn and then because colbert restrictions there was taking up space in their bar and they wanted to make sure on the hands of someone who truly appreciate it even though on the furthest thing from a musician so you don't play the oregon. You just look at it. Oh yeah know i. I'm useless. I i've got no music whatsoever so i got my friends to help me and put it on top of the landing you know when you go down the stairs and that's where it goes with all the other own some old winnipeg arena artifacts. I have as well. So it's yeah for sure. It's a prized possession. Jackass said that you started loving the Oilers when you're what three years old. How did this start my parents. My dad used to sit me down and quiz me. He would say a city. And then i would have to tell him which team played there. So you know. It wasn't math or science or anything like that. They didn't need to learn how to spell. They wanted me to learn the hockey team hockey geography. Yeah it was bred into my own right from the beginning and greg for you. When did the jets become you know. A team that was coursing through your veins march seventeenth nineteen seventy so he remembers. The day was my first ever game on my birthday and Oddly enough was against the calgary see calgor- odyssey being the greatest rival of Cd of edmonton her. But after that game. I just became enamored with the team obsessed with the team and my being an only child being raised by my mom. She used that too. Because i didn't like school economic. Get i guess. And she got from almost failing every year to be an honor student because she she withheld the game. Very boring game in the seventy one year because of my report card. I never ever let that happen again was actually. The soviet union came to winnipeg the one they lost matter. I was up at one eight one. There you go. I was very very energetic to me up in a hurry. How would you describe your emotions. When the winnipeg jets left town in nineteen ninety-six like many young adults. I was in my twenties I strongly considered leaving at the time and It was a sense of devastation. Because it wasn't about hockey was about the pride in your city. 'cause i traveled quite a bit with my mom and with my high school in my younger years. And whenever say where he from winnipeg it wasn't for the jets. Most people wouldn't have a hot clue where it was and it was just a sense it puts it puts on them out and then one night on my wife and i sat down pros and cons of leading. Oddly enough the only con about staying in winnipeg that we didn't have the jets. So that's why we stayed in very by and you knew the team would come back at some point in time. That's why my twitter handles told your fifteen. I told you for fifteen years eight back jackie. In addition to all the things that are in the cave there are a lot of super fans and edmonton people. Love the oilers. What separates you from the average of session obsessive oilers fan. I don't know if there is much. I like i i mean. I don't know many people plan their wedding. You know to be oilers. Themed like we did. I think that might give us a little bit of an edge but oilers fans are very loyal. I mean we've been through some tough times and we still buy all the merchandise and go to all the games you know. The team was pretty terrible for a while there and we games were selling out so we are just part of the part of the crazy part of the the fans. We don't recommend this at home. But what is this about you. Knocking a child over to get wing gretzky. Now listen okay so when you see wayne gretzky and you have and this is probably any hockey fan. May be not just an oilers fan but when you see wayne gretzky and you have his campbell conference jersey and you're wearing it you get to wayne gretzky to get that autograph so ib lined. It's through a room and hit a child. I didn't stop was sort of like just me running through a crowd of people. I didn't stop. I'm pretty sure he's okay but i was. It didn't matter. I got the off. I got the autograph and i got to shake Walter gretzky's hand which you know to me. That was over the top. I couldn't speak for a day. Greg what do you think of the oilers. I mean do you do. You have kind. Words to say at all about jackie's team or no no no it. Well no no. I'm not trying to be rude. Bugs me that they're like we've got a great team edmonton just happens to have the best player on the planet is a bit of jealousy. Probably and you know four first round overall picks like what six or seven years And of course. I still get the shakes from thinking about my time as fan in the eighties with gretzky and company in So and to be fair. Jackie i hate everyone other than the jets. It's not personal though not. It's nothing personal. It's all jets boss. And i hate no one more than the laughs. So there's that jackie's of keeping it respectable for the radio crowd. What do you think of winnipeg geno. I okay so right now it is i am the same it is or bust and if the only thing i will say and i want my oilers swin. That's it period. That's all if they if they happen to not win. I will be cheering for winnipeg toronto montreal calgary and i hate that. I was going to say that's generous but not to the rest of the country. No no we're going to let you go. We're going to let both of you go but just very briefly. I mean you'll be in the cave watching the game tonight is. There's some sort of ritual. Jackie that you have when you watch your team. I know my husband. And i will both have our jerseys on our dog will have her jersey on and we will be ready to go greg for you. Is there some sort of ritual that you do. Bring luck to your team on not really original habit on. There's no talking allowed when the play is on conversation stops in mid sentence. And you gotta wait for whistler's mersal so other than that by will be out jets. You're going go jets go with our dogs as well. So if you're talking you just have to stop in the middle of the sentence or you can keep talking. I'm i wish you both the best of luck. I don't know how that's gonna work out. But i hope it's at the very least. It's a great series and it's great to talk to you both thank you thank you very much greg. Burnett superfan winnipeg jets. Jackie bondra die hard fan at the edmonton oilers. Their teams face off tonight tomorrow. The haves and leaves kickoff there series. There's is a rivalry.

"All right everybody in the car. Let's go. What are we GONNA DO I? We get their mom gopher hike. Canoeing can we go canoeing to I? Don't see why does it take to get to the forest? It's not that far. Sweetie. Are we there yet? Yep, we're here already. Gets a short drive from your neighborhood to your neighborhood visit discover the forest dot org to find a neighborhood parks or greenspace near you brought to you by the Ad Council and the US force service. The. Champion. oilers tonight by a score. Of Seventy three. It was their final series in the seven year history of the League and the third time that they won the. Cup. The ushers are trying to control the crowd just pouring over the boards out onto the. And it's a real mob scene down around the Winnipeg. All and the opposite head a little sadder the oilers have gone back to regroup. About each other and now they're coming up single file for the traditional host series handshake if they can get the jets Lewis from all of their fans and each other. We're number one. You can't argue with that. Yes, they are. And now The players are shaking hands. The oilers will go to their dressing room and the jets will stay on for the presentation of the Africa Cup. And they will have permanent possession of that gut having been the last team to win it. As the W. H. A. is now officially no more next year. It's all one league the NHL. With four fine teams coming into. One of the oldest professional league North America. Welcome to good seats still available a curious little podcast devoted to exploring what used to be in professional sports. Here's your host Tim Hamlett. Holy. Mackerel were back again. How Ari everybody? Is Your Pal Tim and it is good seats still available are curious little podcast journey each and every week despite all the odds against it into our little journey into what used to be in professional sport. That's yeah. That's our niche. That's our little rabbit hole of intrigue, and we're finally escaped back into hockey and we're happy to do. So the clip there the top here probably gives you a little bit of a sense of where we're going this week. We're going to Winnipeg when Winnipeg Manitoba beautiful up there especially, this time of year. Shirt like to visit but you know, of course, the border being closed mixed difficult but we can do so electronically with our pal Curtis Walker this week. As we get into the original version of the Winnipeg jets of the Old World Hockey Association in these one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seventy, two, seventy, nine to be exact. Perhaps one of the most successful I think that's fair to say franchises in what history certainly they were in many championship series for sure. They even want a bunch including that last one in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine. Called for you through the dulcet tones of Al Shaver. Yeah. He the longtime voice of the old Minnesota North Stars. Not Quite sure why AL was calling the the final APCOA championship series. Between two. Canadian. Teams in the what I don't know if that was. A louder he was breaking his contract or he was free agent for that Gig or or what but I know Alice still with US maybe others might know the answer to that question a curiosity to me for sure I'm sure I'm the only one wondering. But I digress. So we get into this week. A fascinating tale of of a team that has a lot of different sort of legs and lives frankly. Obviously the WHO version of such a for seven years or seasons or so. And of course came to an end when the what merged with the NHL. The US, the Winnipeg jets became part of the NHL. So that was arguably their sort of second incarnation. And of course, then they bolted I don't know if they bolted, but they certainly went to supposedly greener pasture pastures down in Phoenix to become the coyotes Phoenix Arizona who knows what they're called this this minute I forgot I think there's still under league ownership so who knows it might be changing even since I think even playing Glendale which doesn't even make any sense to me but what do I know about the Phoenix Metro area but I you know in hockey i. Whatever it's it's a long story but but obviously, that's where the jets wound up going but then make it even more confusing as you well know the Atlanta thrashers after they kind of gave up the ghost and that was previous conversation we've had with a number of different folks. are Powell Dan butchered had a little bit of involvement. There are certainly some some memories of that are JP Della camera was the voice of the thrashers for a couple of years. Old episodes you might want to search up. Of course, what do they do they moved to? Winnipeg to then inherit. The former jets name and logo to become I guess you could technically call the third version of the Winnipeg jets but. However you WanNa talk about that story. You can't get away from its origins and that's the the the topic at hand this week with our PAL Curtis Walker as we go north of the border talk about the original version of the WJ. With the Winnipeg jets. Yeah. That's what I'm trying to say and It's an interesting chat for sure Please stay tuned for it. But before we get to it how about celebrating a little what showy with two of our great sponsors this week one of course is streaker sports dot com the purveyors of sports culture. They are lots of great sports meets pop culture stuff at streaker sports dot com. But certainly the thing that you should check out early and often is there defunct leagues sexual which, of course, include the late great world, Hockey Association, and tremendous t shirts for just about every franchise. Away to their great colors great layouts. For you there, they're all there for you. The Phoenix roadrunners, the New York Golden Blades. The? New York Raiders The Jersey Knights. You're a fan of the Minnesota fighting, Saints The Philadelphia Blazers the San Diego because on and on and on, and they're they're beautifully and. Again, streaker sports dot com just search up the W. h. a section of the defunct leagues Tab and unfortunately. There is no sure to be had for the Winnipeg jets in the what we suspect that's because all of those logos and I believe the I guess inherited heritage of I could call it that. From that old and original version of the team has now been sort of a scooped up and now as part of the current NHL version even though it's a relatively hollow. Extension of the franchise. So that's why you don't find a jets thing there but and that's fortunately the same thing you'll find at five. Oh, three sports are there sponsor the king of throwbacks day five, zero, three, Dash, sports dot Com Promo code seats Oh by the way I'm sorry what Streaker Sports Promo Code Foia is good seats at the Promo Code at streaker.

For Listening this far and n beyond with our chat now coming up here's our conversation with Curtis. That, we had a couple of months back. Sorry for the delay, but here it is all its glory please as always. And Join. Him. Well maybe maybe we can kind of of center around and this is sort of maybe sort of an odd way to kind sort of get into it but maybe the. Time when. The team was transitioning from the W. h. a. into the NHL because clearly there are there are you know that's an inflection point of the original Winnipeg jets and you know this was a team that arguably or maybe not. So arguably was perhaps one of the if not the. Most successful franchises in the all of the W. H. A. I mean, this is a team that of of the seven seasons that the. The W. H. A.. Played what? Two, three, six, seven yes they won three and they and they were in five finals, which is a pretty amazing thing. But I think lost on a lot of people who maybe weren't paying attention to the W. H. Back in the day. But maybe that's a good place to start because not only did they win three championships but they also won the last one ever in the W. h. a. and that's a hell of a way to sort of set yourself up to go into the NHL maybe you can give us a sense of sort of maybe the high I guess of Winnipeg winning the championship in seventy, eight, seventy, nine. and. Arguably. Hitting the almost rock bottom literally the next year going into the NHL when it maybe should have been a bit more exciting. Well I mean. I think those first two years in the NHL I think. It was obviously a major shock. but I think fans understood because you know. Hockey fans are intelligent. They're not just you know it's not a, it's not A. Fair weather you're not fair weather fan. Dating. We're that the NHL took many of our players. But We understood that it was going to take to rebuild. But obviously, it was for from a team that had won three championships and. And you know to a team that eighty one only one nine games all year but but then You get to the third year eighty, one, eighty, two. That to me is one of the one of my favorite seasons of all of the twenty four years the jets play. Just because. They they came th they finished with a five hundred record and not that. That's. Anything to really. Brag about but. During the previous year, the only one night games you know. NHL Record for totally. that is a big deal. And kind of. gave us hope that. Okay we're we're on our way back. Maybe we'll content not that the jets ever did but. As it's been described to me in the past, you need to sell hope to fans and I think that I. gave us hope. That's to why I look at that. You're so fun. But you know back to your original point about the jets being one of the most successful franchises in the in the WF J.. what maybe your listeners aren't aware that the twice the team came very close to fully. after after the seventy, three, seventy, four season been haskins out. You he wasn't able to. Draw very well even. Even even with a star attraction like poppy home and Community ownership group step forward and the. Wasn't really. The the group it was people in the community that. A whole bunch of people chipped in with twenty, five, fifty dollar donations. and. They they raised enough money to be able to buy the team from enhance. That fund that kept the jets going through the mid mid way through seventy, seven, seventy, eight season, and then all, and then they ran out of money. And only then did private ownership group led by Michael Body, embarrassing grow and also Bobby Hull step forward to to to save the TV tonight they got them in the NHL. So in many respects this this became kind of a will say a Labor of love but certainly a community spirited kind of thing pretty early on in the what which arguably was financially wobbly from from the beginning right I don't think that was unique to Winnipeg no no, no, that's right. Yeah. Yeah. I mean it was. It was. Stable I mean quote unquote. but yeah, the. It took a lot of faith to to you know to for people to pony up cash for a league that would only had two seasons behind. Winnipeg jets didn't become a hot ticket really until after that season? Is when the and that's when the jets brought all the Swedish players over one and a and a couple of from Finland. That's when things got. became an exciting product and That's when fans. Started turning. Up. More. Well. Let's back per second. So we had We were lucky to have Dennis Murphy on about nine months ago ep sort of the. the the original Hustler Guess for the Basketball Association, the what the Roller Hockey and it goes on and on right and one of the questions I pointedly asked him and maybe this is sort of a way to kind of circle around the origins of the franchise in Winnipeg of the first places. He was you know unabashedly. Agreeable to the to the notion, the proposition that. A lot of what he was trying to do is basically sell franchises right I mean. Arguably you know finding. People with money or at least people who said, they had money the chambers of commerce and the various cities helping him find such people. But there's a point at which you know I. I don't think he particularly cared about. How each of the teams were sort of firmly running versus them at least having a franchise and being able to pay the rent and and give other teams place to come and play. And expand the league franchise fee. Wise. So I guess I guess the general question is why Winnipeg would you say? I know you were living there at the time, but in nineteen seventy one. Winnipeg not sort of the largest metropolis raft of pro hockey that the AA could have could have gone to certainly other cities in Canada arguably bigger than win. So why would you say? Winnipeg was one of the original franchises. Your research. Well. I mean. Winnipeg had at the time had had an arena that was SIDE FROM Toronto Montreal Vancouver the, largest. largest LARGEST ARENA? they didn't have building sent in Calgary and Edmonton. Still, good. Sizable? Market. Then, asking had have money and it's not that He was you know when he wanted out in nineteen, seventy and nineteen, seventy four. It's not that he was You know on the verge of bankruptcy bankruptcy himself he just but he's didn't. Didn't see a future I. Guess the question I I don't i. don't really know why you know bobby hole. was targeted for winning. and. That's my next question. So is. Being relatively naive to this, right. Where and how does Bobby Hull wind up in Winnipeg of all the franchises in the what getting off the ground? Yes media. That's That's a question I don't know either. Know. I don't have an answer for you and I think there's The Times. I think maybe even he he was asking that question because I I I, know that he really didn't want to leave. It was more of a case that you know I it just. Wanted to you know he wanted to be well compensated and UH and rightly. So and they took the what to to to give them that compensation member. Why? Why? Why Winnipeg is there something I you know I I never really knew. Glad. He did because if there wasn't no bobby hall, there was no, there's no, there's no jets. And No, what hey? Hey What. What if what if? Played but I don't think they would have. Lasted Very Long. It would've been like the like the USFL would have going away on the after three years. Now. I do find that interesting and it's clearly question we'd like to ask Dennis again when we have a back on the show is but I also probably seems to me that that that Ben had skin you know I guess. In cahoots with the League and and and Dennis probably said, okay I'll be the guy I'll be the I wanna say the rube, but I'll be the guy that sort of ponies up some of the but but the other sort of true the dropping all that was there was a passing of the hat if you will. All the owners to kind of help subsidize halls. Arrival in the League. And well, in there and it certainly I mean. It was. Forward. Thinking on all their parts because they they understood that having. A star trashing like that would benefit everybody. Owners today, they're just more looking at looking out for themselves. You look at those tenants numbers in those early years and you know the the the biggest draws in in visiting cities when was when when Bobby home and Jeff came to town. Specifically Chicago. And he got he got a presentation there when when when when they played the cougars the first time. All right. So give me a sense of UAE in the W.. H. A. Years. Why was Winnipeg? So, relatively successful relative to the other franchises I mean obviously Bobby Hall Star signing. Great magnet of attraction you're mentioning it becomes sort of a an allure for for you know a teams when the when the jets are coming to town but but it had to be more than just bobby hall that made that team so good on the ice. Yeah. Well, WH- where the jets really got successful with when. When Dr Jerry Wilson help bring all the Swedish players over. Anders Hedberg Nielsen allergic sugar those guys were were really really good. And I don't think people in hockey world understand just how the day were. are show specifically He came over later. In his career. But if he had come over at an earlier age, we'd be talking about him one of the Gris defensive of all time. And and I know this Anders Hedberg that other NHL teams or or NHL teams had had made the made each of the each in those players better offers but they collectively wanted to come to Winnipeg Because they wanted to make an impact like the collectively the Swedish player and. At the time think you know it's important to note that. North American pro pro hockey was pretty much the exclusive main of of Canadian. Getting foreign players was was just unheard of and and in some cases. You know the these guys were presented because you north, American players look at them. You know yeah. Foreigners coming to take our jobs. I mean later at you know. They you know th there were only. Received once they really don't realize they could play. But That's what really really made a go for the jets and and specifically the the hotline with Hedberg. Nielsen and home. the playing individually they were great. But as a trio, they were even better than they did they all the they'll help each other. And and that that was one of the greatest lines in hockey history and combined with th the the other. Swedish. Finnish players the jets brought over. That's what really made the jets. The great team they were mentioning that hotline. So under Hedberg and Nilsson in Bobby Hall. I'm wondering by the way I don't know this for a fact but was there was there a theme song or Jingle around that? Got That I was aware. There was a salmon silvers in nineteen seventy, five called hotline I would wonder. Okay. No in fact, I even asked Andrew vote whether how he knew how how doesn't mind got its name and even he didn't know. Well it's a heck of name I, I gotTa do a little more research I'm sure there's some some signs and stuff from from photography and the best part but so so explain to me then that hotline right it was clearly. Goal scoring machine and you're mentioning how how darned good it was. But one interesting thing now having grown up in the New York metropolitan area and in the late Seventies. was a huge coup when Hedberg and Nielsen came to the New York Rangers. So answer me this W-. How did that happen in seventy eight why and second given how great they were I think both in in their jets time as well as in Rangers time for sure. How come they're not their numbers aren't even retired in this jets franchise. Versus say Bobby Hall whose name is is indeed retired as curious to me. Yeah. Well, first of all, how they became Rangers their agents Are there there other agent Don Baizley had negotiated a contract for them where they They have the right to to. Get an offer from another. Mother teams in the and they they they they. They've got offers. Ironically from John Ferguson and the Rangers. Ferguson later became the largest figure over the NHL Jeff. And the jets have the right to match and they. Did they didn't and largely I think. Partially because they. They weren't able to That was a time when the community ownership group ran out of money. And even even had it happened earlier. when the private owners took over I, I'm not sure they would have been able to afford. putting all their money into the institute players like that. So, I think that was the. Why why the jets chose not to match. And we're or or unable to match and They're they're allowed to become to become Rangers as far as why they weren't Their numbers weren't retired. You know they should be. but they weren't in the you know I think. More. So than than their numbers being retired, I, think they're still hockey royalty Winnipeg to this day. they're they're. Frankly there should be. There should be a nice little statue of them and much like there is in. of the French. Connection Line in Buffalo. Plenty of you know there there should be something like that but you know there there isn't and I can do. I find it interesting too that they left just before the last season of the jets in the W. h. a. and yet the jets still one one, the whole Shebang. End of the season now obviously, the wj was somewhat weakened but still. To go out the champions of the League still not not a bad. Not a bad effort given to of your star players are basically gone. Yeah. Well, I mean th they don't see. It wasn't that they. You know they they didn't leave the Rangers in in midseason and negotiating midseason too. But but they're they're they're still gave their all for the rest of the year and you know went went out and style. So give me a sense of how. Guys like Hedberg and Nilsson were found in the first place you were mentioning. The good doctor sort of so wh where and why and how was sort of that process put into place what made the jets unique in in finding that talent I mean I can't. It couldn't have been an obvious to other teams in the NHL and the W. Ha that they were the good players in Sweden in Europe and other places. Yeah I think it was A. They were kind of hidden because Dr Wilson had known had. Bergen. And they'll send wasn't he? He? He was from Winnipeg and he was studying over there. and. That's how we absolutely fine. If I don't know guys and and you know as I mentioned the. Players Sweet. You know players from Sweden weren't really highly regarded. They were just the only time. You've ever see these guys in international tournaments but. It wasn't Breaking them across on. Mass. WAS NOT A. really on anybody's radar it was it was you know and and and it wouldn't probably wouldn't have happened for a long time if it wasn't for the W.. H.. A. And and I think you always get that with when when there's another league that needs talent. They're they're willing to to explore unconventional routes that. established league wouldn't. Tell me about the fans in the the W. H. A. Years I know you. This is sort of relatively you came in sort of later in into their in their what life but. Give me a sense you SORTA hits. It added before rallying around the team went financial issues sort of their head but but. It also feels to me that Winnipeg was A. Smaller community I guess relative to the other major cities, big cities in the NHL and maybe even the other wj cities so. Maybe, you can explain a little bit of the bond maybe this carried over into the NHL years to between the fans and this team like what? How did that sort of bond kind of grow because it seems like it was relatively special now? It was and. You know we've always felt like in fact I, you know even on my website, that's why I used the moniker when when it was our team and really There was an article in the game. Program called. The the the People's team and we didn't think of it as someone else's it was it was almost like. You know like our son's. I'll you even use the analogy from you know junior team here in Saint catharines around the The the players are almost almost seen. I it's very personal. It's like it's like you know it'd be criticized the player. I think you're you're criticizing someone someone's family that's so and and And being a smaller market. It's really all all they all they have. So that's. The, they rally around it. It's not. It's not like a huge city like Toronto New York, where you know there's there's all kinds of competition for your entertainment door. There's the Winnipeg jets were at on you know they have the. Arms of CFL but. The jets worth the number one link to the outside world and and like say when when, when they ultimately. Left in nineteen, ninety, six, it was It was a huge ball to the city and and people were you know? More more than just losing hockey team, it was part of their identity. Given given the the demise of the W. H. A. in after the the of the seventy, eight, seventy, nine season and given the relative financial problems that the team was having certainly around the time not a L- let alone the League itself. Why was Winnipeg saved so to speak and brought into into the NHL given such financial duress would seem to be. They would be a more perhaps obvious candidate for for not making the transition and being absorbed. Well. At the time they did have new new ownership of the private owners step forward. So they they had money. And the NHL. They took in winner pay more. As part of as part of that merger slash expansion. as much to just to. Get, rid of the competition because they're what in its later years signing a lot of junior players. and I've I've made the observation in the past that I think that you know the the the the NHL value, the The young players on the Birmingham Bulls more than they value when the mark. But because jets, the jets had been successful, they had new ownership. Now that was willing to step forward and. Continuing with the franchise. That that's why they were included as to. Why then why? Then where was the team gutted? was ended this happen to other. Franchises. As they went to the NHL. Why was that the the process versus trying to keep some of those newer franchises relatively strong and expansion? The the the NHL to this day, hold a grudge and as part of a condition of of be granted a franchise the NHL. NHL teams were granted the ability to grab players off what rosters who who? They drafted or how otherwise rights to. So, the all the you know the the jets and the other three incoming. Teams in the what were had their rosters pretty much. Got It and they were giving an expansion draft to stock the rosters but The NHL. ext rockets pound of flesh that the only thing that the the The NHL or the incoming what were allowed to protect two skaters and two goaltenders? Like Hamilton. For example, they had we Gretzky in the whenever there's elections on him the jets got. Scott Campbell worth local origin. And That's why they had such. Such, purport teams in their first two years. So is this more retribution then from the NHL Perspective than it was sort of embracing these new. That's a little bit. And in fact I'll I'll tell you a little story that human from from two thousand eleven I was invited to to screening of a french-language dog documentary me. And I talked to the producer at length and I had seen the documentary before this public event. and. I asked him why he wanted to not talk to Bobby Home And he said, you know we contacted bobby he was more than happy to talk to us. but he wasn't an on he was still in the blackhawks payroll because he was in the demon duster. So he said you know I'm happy to talk to you just clear for the Blackhawks and and set at the time. And and they contact the Blackhawks. And, you know you know you WanNa talk and Bobby author what? No Uncertain Term No. And and this after bill were to pass away. So this this grudge from the Chicago Blackhawks is Hispanic. Generations. And that's that's fascinating to me and I you know we delve a little bit into the. Allen we talked to Howard Baldwin a number of months ago. The old New England whalers franchise obviously earlier in the in the what process it's as years went on. But it's to me. It's fascinating sort of how. That grudge can sort of continue. You know even even in some some modern but I, think it's reflective. I guess of. A bitter time. I. Mean. We've had a lot of discussion around. The great expansion in the late sixties, early seventies and and frankly how the NHL. Kind the lost its mind a little bit after having gone from six franchises almost overnight to to twelve, and then of dripping out to two more just about each and every year for the early part of the seventies, right? Not necessarily well done Oakland Seals Atlanta flames and you know a the The New York islanders which were terrible for a number of year I. Mean it just it? It feels to me that you know the W. H. A. Maybe in hindsight frankly maybe kicked the NHL in in the bud a little bit to kind of maybe get own with it and that's Kind of. Seems like it's odd remembrance and you're thanks. So to speak for the NHL when you think about it modern times today. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. I th the NHL would definitely in sort of reactionary mode they wanted. They wanted to keep the WHO certain markets and. And Yeah. No not that was It was I it was very much a bitter war during that time I. It's also noteworthy though that once they settled. There you know. The the what filed an antitrust suit against the NHL and matter homeless. But the? The two leagues. Actually, play. Exhibition Games against each other somebody established teams didn't want anything to do with it but there are still Some interesting game there and I. It is interesting to note that the jets first game against an NHL team. was the Atlanta flames, and of course, the Atlanta thrashers later later. Would later moved to Winnipeg. When did those those NHL W ha games happened it was probably later in the W. H. as life. No. Somebody. Four. Wasn't okay. Well, no no. I think it was a third or fourth year. Okay. So so that that to me in an of itself is interesting and maybe through the lens of the jets, you can maybe give arts all backward because this is curiosity than me. Why would the NHL? Even agree to that given that that would. Basically give instant legitimacy. To the what by agreeing to meet them in his challenge? Well it was all part of that anti antitrust settlement with all agreed with lawyers and things like that and you know I think either I mentioned that there was even a. Possibility disgust of of even interleague play and and and and a potential. World Championship series. I. Don't later date mean in an office and never happened. But that that that that the. That all came about with the anti-trust Island. So so the grist then obviously for that that that animosity obviously is very, very deep-rooted than going back to even. So let me ask you this then based on what you're able to determine from your your investigation of the W. h. a year. So we'll get to the NHL years in a minute. How good were the jets? Obviously, they were cleaning up in the what but how how good you think they were relative to the Nhl do think they could have competed and were one there to during those years I believe the jets. Would have been among the top third or fourth. That's team. But where I think the the the that we're the jets would have had problems depth in the W. H. A. Pretty much everybody who is under contract with on the is. WHEREAS NHL teams had. Deep Rosters. And that that would have played out over a long season. You know whereas say the Montreal Canadians get an injury, they can bring up a player that from from the Nova Scotia, voyageurs There's definitely NHL Worthy and if if Nova Scotia team was playing an NHL schedule would probably better than probably have half the league. So whereas the jets. They ran into some serious injury trouble during the seventy, six, seventy, seven season, and they have to bring up a couple of amateurs. Your there's a the frontline. Guys were definitely competitive with with the best NHL had to offer if I it's when you get to the lower part of the roster at that I think we would would've it would've shown itself. Over Long. Well before we get into the transition to the NHL, there any sort of players were. Events that maybe stand out in your mind as you you've actually created the definitive day by day history timeline of this franchise during the what years. There any sort of events or or people? That, we haven't talked about yet. That kind of stood out were standout still in your mind around the what version of the jets that maybe some of our fans might not sort of be aware of or perhaps just got lost in the shuffle of time. I can't say that there was any specific event other than you know August championships and Probably, just answer it. This way is that. Much more of a wide open style of play that than what you had in the NHL. and. You know an honestly that the. Swedish Finnish players have played a role in that. That's what separated from. And from the NHL and and made it special and. You know being a young child at the time I don't think I appreciate it but I think. Looking back. That's that's what made it special, and and the in that era things were more personal to I think either you don't see players. Sort of at arm's length from fans you you could. You know we had low glossy could you could even reach over and I remember being with With some school. Schoolmates, and during during the warm-up, we'd we'd lean over the glass and Clare's sign autographs for us during the warm up and it was Much different time. And I mean I understand why players are more guarded today? There were regular guys and uh, that changed over. Over the years. And I, think all that just just made made us. Tell me to about the I'm guessing that the the. There they one in seventy eight against the national team as well. Right which was. Kind of a big deal I think that lost a lot of people. The. The W. H. A. I I don't know the NHL did too. But the the the Soviet team when they came on a number of occasions that was kind of a big deal was kind like rallying the troops and it was almost a you know spy-versus-spy in terms of Pre Olympics if you will in terms of animosity and how how seriously that the people that took that competition so the jets winning that was was certainly a big deal in seventy eight I guess. Well, and and let's not forget. This is this is an all star team of major hockey power the fact that any club team. In North America could be competitive I. mean you know it wasn't like an all star what Marin all-star NHL team was a club club team. So even to be competitive with that with that group. you know wasn't accomplishment now I. Did win that that one game in nineteen, seventy eight. but try checked in start that game it should be noted I mean I I mean I'm sure the second best alternates Soviet Union was still pretty good but I think they They. Most most of going against the backup. And and it was before that they had played three games in Tokyo Soviets in those games were not competitive. But it should be you know the the the the jets didn't really kind of took it like a holiday but the Soviets had their way in those games. One last question that I have from the what sort of stuff. So when Winnipeg was. Ruling the what were they? Were there anybody rivalries I mean obviously, you know Edmonton and Calgary were kind of always added and. And I suspect that. Quebec and Ottawa kind of had it for each other and and some other natural rivalries I. Guess in the end the what. But did Winnipeg at the time have any sort of natural rivalries over there. Was there a team? In the WHO that they particularly didn't like or got into scrapes with or just Constantly, competitive with or were. You know butting heads against or or were they just kind of? Just. Naturally not rivalled with anybody. I don't think there was a an unnatural Edmonton Calgary type of rivalry they they. They had a good thing. Better a rivalry with Quebec just because the two teams were. I remember specifically seventy seven were You know on a on a collision course for the Cup final. But It should be noted that as you in later in the later W.h, a years the you know there's only six eight teams in the League You know I think everybody is a natural rivalry when you're playing you're. Playing a team prickly almost twenty times a year. So you know you do develop that I. Did hear from Morris Local which the jets in the arrows didn't really like each other and then the now that that that that played a factor when when the jets. Picked, up a number of of the X. Eros after the. Arrows. Fooled. Th, the mix of those two teams was not. was anything but harmonious and took too late in the year before they they really started to win. I well, Let. Let's go into the the transition from the seventy nine champion world hockey. Association champion the last ever. What champion Africa Cup winning and owning guess for Maurienne Winnipeg jets. Into the seventy, nine eighty. Nhl Season May maybe you could give her audience, a sense of sort of. Was it known? Or. Was it essentially understood that the jets were gonNA make the transition and if so what was that transition like say from the final game through the beginning of the NHL season, it must have been an interesting summer slash off season for a team not knowing kind of what they were getting into or maybe they did I don't know. Well I think. From a fan. Perspective is a young Fan I. I was hoping for better but I think John Ferguson understood that they're they're really working win. I think it was just more of. In that first year, it was the opportunity to see some new teams. 'cause you know like say that you know in the last year of the what you know the Birmingham Bulls almost every second night. finally you know you get the season, you know NHL teams that you watching, tv all these years and. you know. Part of twenty one team weakest part of part of extemely. Six or seven teams. And so. That was the big thing. But as far as the players, you know it's Did keep keep a few of their own players but Was I was I. It was a real ragtag bunch and. Coach Tom mcvie You Oh. Always said that he thinks that that's seventy nine eighty season was his best coaching job that he was able to get twin. Well. How much of it was? The manner in which they were defined in terms of their divisions because it seems that obviously the first couple of years I even eight, hundred, eighty, one, the next season I mean nine wins out of eighty games. I mean I mean that's Clearly a huge come down from championship years just just two years prior but I get the sense that especially in the in the bulk of the eighties. The divisional alignment the Smythe Division I guess they were in the North for one year but. They were constantly butting up against the oilers. And flames right. They couldn't even get out of their own sort of shake say Canadian geography. To get into playoff contention with some of the other teams in the League is so it almost like. That that that was almost a predestined or preordained that they were GonNa Kinda just bow out to those now. I. Guess. Geographic rivals. Well Yeah. During, that that era it was almost like four different leaks because he played every. Your division rivals either seven or eight times Per, season and you know the rest of the League you only you only played each opponent three times. But you know you touch on can't get past, Edmonton and Calgary, and that's a that's a bit of an urban legend The jets biggest problems during those years the Winnipeg jets. That is a team that. John. Ferguson. Was the general manager for nine years and produced two winning seasons it's it's it's not the oilers fault. It's not Calgary's fault if if the jets fault that they weren't able to advance any further they had they had a tough enough time with the lower teams in the division with Vancouver in La And all all a cold one. One memorable stretching their schedule late in eighty, two, eighty, three season. There were sort of humming along. They had a real opportunity to make a good run at second place Calgary. And they have three games on. Their schedule. With. With. Vancouver. Vancouver was a team that had. Think they went seventeen years in a row. Winning season. They weren't very good I mean. I. Mean. And they had stance meal. Thomas Gruden and a bunch of markers and Greiner. Any team that fancies fancied itself. The would-be contender had no problems. and. Instead of. Burying Vancouver and making a good run at Calgary where they would be able to avoid in the first round. And it should be noted in Calgary which just as mediocre the jets at that point. They lost all three games to Vancouver. And had they even as much as tied one of those games they would have avoided Edmonton in the first round. And the same thing happened to fall here. So, you know it's. I hear this a lot about the jets always being. Held back by the Orioles but. In reality they were held back by the jet. Well No, that's that's an interesting way to put it for sure and. It also speaks to. Frankly how tough it is. In today's modern terminology to be an expansion quote unquote franchise. In a big league although today, it's a little easier. There are a lot easier way to circumvent money can sort of solve a lot of problems. Right. But you know this is you're mentioning sort of the the. So I guess the question sort of jumps up to the fours. Okay. So where was this vaunted European talent pipeline that so well stocked the what version when it came time to go to go to go to war in the NHL. Well You know people in figuring it out, and also there was there was a common draft. The jets just didn't have any you know. If there was a good player. Like Andrew Type, for example, he would he would have been subject to subject to the draft and you know another team would likely have taken it. So. That's that's that's why the European kind of dried up and and of course John. Ferguson. Had his own ideas to he was hired in the. For the Seventy, eight, seventy nine or during the seventy, eight, seventy, nine. And He had his own plan and he's you know, is I in his first draft he felt that Jimmy man was were. Would have more value to the jets than Michelle they went on to become a multiyear fifty goal scorer and and and just just you know to to to go back to your previous question about the the oilers. One of the things that always th that that it rankles me someone that you know lived had season tickets during that. The jets. Fought like hell to to to Calgary. And and rolled over for end but it's it's as if they're beating Calgary was their Stanley. Cup. You know and. When they played Edmonton, it was. Just a I think more than exaggerated pillow fight. They Lost Sixteen Straight playoff games to the orders. I know the orders are. Better. But anyone who watches NHL Today knows how headed these playoff games? Every stride is contested. You if you WANNA talk about a record that will never be broken dot. That's one where we're one team beats another team sixteen straight playoff game. That's something I think defines the NHL. Version of the where they. Had to stick in the CRAW fans to. This then this fan in particular. I don't know that it's it's stuck on across John, Ferguson, but it certainly is in sticks micro. Well. All right. So but give me a sense then as the as the eighties and nineties early ninety sort of sort of played out. Where the fans in all of this right I mean obviously, you're your season ticket holder at the time and and. Where is was the loves still strong as it was safe from the W. H. Eight days or had the sort of magic kind of worn off or was give me a sense of how how beloved this team was. Given the fact that they were. You know certainly woeful to start in their NHL lives and. Frankly could never really get over the hump when it came to significant playoff. Successes in the years where they did qualify and regularly at that actually right Fans are still very excited and again that's not saying much work the NHL very charitable when it came to make the playoffs this severe enough. Then very much. Cared and they never stopped caring. But was different and that it I think. There was a lot of anger building. John Ferguson was a larger than life figure he. Boasted of all these. Great young players or it's GONNA come in we're gonNA, come and. Save the day all the all of his great white hopes and. Attendance really kind of. Bought them out but certainly waned. And They WanNa John Ferguson say it on a platter and and Finally I, it finally happened and. Probably. The most memorable games that I attended as a season ticket holder. Maybe throw. Jets, history. Is when I was walking home. Going through the. Parking Lot. And I had my transistor radio on as I always did. Listening to the Post, game, show and listening to Kurt deals killed backs voice saying that John. Ferguson. was about to be fired. Fans in the parking lot were honking like crazy. And I had an ear grin on that. I think it's still on my face that was the most joyous time of you know. But the? Stanley Cup. John. Ferguson was finally fired because. You promised so much and he just thought delivered. And finally. Was finally was removed from his post although it should be noted that his successor. Wasn't. Any better, but it still didn't need that I didn't didn't deserve as flare. And one of his. Probably. The one thing that bothers me most John Ferguson is not that he failed in his his his job. But that he never accepted responsibility for it. To his dying day he would. He went bearish grow you blame. Everybody but the Dogcatcher never wants to stand up and say I made a backdrop choice. I, made a bad trade. I didn't get the job done. You know. When you're when you set a mood like that for your team. It's no wonder they didn't win. So I still commemorate that day you know the anniversary of that day. To. Day. Well. PSA Background for for our listeners I mean, this is a guy who won. Five championships with the Montreal Canadians in in the sixties and early seventies right and as a player and was an assistant coach and head coach in general manager. Then for the New York Rangers but I didn't know this until recently. And this is ironic he he was as general manager of the Rangers. He was the guy apparently responsible for luring. Hedberg and Nielsen to to the Rangers and then who becomes the general manager of the last year of the jets. But Ferguson. So how does that happen I mean I can't imagine the the animosity must have already been started from even before he got Winnipeg no well. I don't think there was animosity so much for furs and I I think. Any and even even the Hedberg Nielsen I think. Fans understood You know the money that there's no way we pay CA- could compete with the money. And as far as. Animosity. Towards. Ferguson. This was all going on during the time when the community ownership still own the team and then. You. Following here when you know. They probably. To taken over in their first year so you know they. For some reason they Michael and nobody really wanted John Ferguson being first off, it'd be dropped staple by the way. And You wasn't happy when. Turned it down but Anyway after John Ferguson and gone to accept the job and you know what? Why? Why are you settled on Ferguson is the question I can't answer. Obviously. I is not here to ask the question of, but I just just it's amazing to me how he would essentially be responsible for now a stealing, but but moving to most popular and arguably most talented players of that time. To the Rangers and then basically shortly thereafter going to the very team that he stole those two players away from I. Just I find hard to believe that nobody noticed door didn't hold a grudge or Looked at him with the spurgeon or certainly with an arched eyebrow. As he came in a run this team. And you know what? I don't think that that really was Held against them I think they. wh-when fans like me celebrated his dismissal wasn't over Hamburger Nielsen. It was it was over the. Nine four years in the job when he just didn't get the job. All, right. Well, explain to me then as we may be round round home to home here. Give me a sense of the latter years in particular. The early nineties that kind of you know set the tone for the team leaving Winnipeg when the first real inklings am I talking about the h days different. But what were the first sort of inklings that maybe this franchise would not stick around? In Winnipeg. For much longer like we're the first sort of wafts of rumors and. Maybe how did they congealed and become a little bit more specific as as the nineties kind of who've done a little You know in the nineties, there was a lot of I. It was long since recognized when I pick. Needed replacement. And yet. It never really happened with a lot of talk a lot of. And just With all the talk. Just. You know I think people realize it needs to be done but I don't think people really realize the urgency. Maybe the ownership did. But. I mean like for me when I heard that they were might be leaving i. Came as A. Shock I. I. Really. Didn't appreciate it. I mean and say I I knew that there was difficulty but the concept that the jets would leave when it was just not on the radar at all. And maybe that's why a an arena wasn't built because I don't think ours that the. Really understood it. And I mean they they did and they did. And and by the time, they really did realize that. You know we're at the eleventh hour. It was too late. and. And I think it's also to be noted that. You know I, think the lockout of of ninety five. Played a factor in that. Didn't It was widely believed that Gary. Bettman sold out the small markets. They were hoping for more a better economic system for I. IT seemed like Winnipeg. which didn't happen until later on when when they got finally got a salary cap. and. Even and I think. As much as hard as it was to admit at the time. and. To win pay just isn't capable of supporting. Big League hockey the way at once once was because the costs have just gotten. Too Rich for a small market. And even today. Yeah, there's a team they're just because the basically the government bought bought the franchise for private owners and the government building arena the government built the practice facility. It's not it's not a you know A. Greg Revival City with a private private money going and it's all just a tax payer funded and. that's so it was just. Just, just didn't work. even even with a new arena, I'm not sure that it would have. Made a put off for a while and then maybe maybe what put it off enough until until the salary cap but. It just Again it just. It just didn't work in Winnipeg. And I don't think people understood that until it's too late. Much of that was Winnipeg being the second smallest market in the NHL I guess when Quebec Move to To Denver, they've actually become the smallest bob how much of that was also Canada versus U S in terms of taxation, turps of strengthened the dollar or the loonie. Yeah, and that's that's all part of it. Not just the the you know that just isn't a lot of money when there's you know there's it's market that it's Seems, itself is you know it's too good for the miners but not big enough for the for the big leagues. But yeah, and and that's you know you you had headed right there with. You know the fluctuating Dolor is all I. It's always going to be an issue for for Canadian teams. maybe not for Toronto but you know I think outside of Toronto. And yeah, and Just A. Heavy. Taxation here it's That's the only just that's just the way it is and. They reach out today I think does have a currency equalization. plan, but it's it's it's still doesn't doesn't the underlying. What was the reaction aside from the team is moving and we're GONNA lose our franchise. That they were going to Arizona and Phoenix of all places I. Mean I remember not obviously having been a resident of either of those cities but just sort of. You know obviously, the Phoenix roadrunners were part of the W., h. a., and as a minor league team all this but I mean I still I think people wonder how and why Arizona's got an H. L. Franchise versus say. Quebec or Kansas City or or even Houston for that matter. Relative to some other, you know markets. Arguably still somewhat struggling. Yeah. Yeah, and that's a good point but if as far as well when the jets were Scheduled to leave the end of the ninety five season there. There's a destination was going to be Minneapolis. 'cause don't forget the Dallas Stars or stars moved to Dallas and you know the twin cities didn't have team at the time. That that was where they were thought to be going, and in fact, they're leaving some talk about sort of shared team because there's a lot of cultural ties between Winnipeg and the twin cities. and. was. Having maybe play. Five Games in. Winnipeg. So I mean. That actually wasn't They're actually kind of hoping for that but then it was only during the ninety, five ninety sixties and that Phoenix was the the the the destination Things felt through Minneapolis. But You know tear point about you know having all these teams in small. Southern cities that there aren't drawing well. You know it's it's a valid point to this day. But. To that I would say, well, it's privately funded. You know you know people in Winnipeg you. Know Look at crowds in Florida with disdain but you know their own team, it's only tax is taxpayer funded, and if it wasn't for the government, they wouldn't have a TV. So that's that'd be my reaction. All right. Well, let's let's let me ask you this one last question. Let you expound a little bit on it so and I'm always fascinated. With teams that have been relocated or re domiciled or were rebooted. So to speak and Winnipeg certainly one of those situations right. So it's a two pronged question and feel free to answer at any any way you want, but it's number one is. the treatment of the history of the W. h. a. and original NHL version. Of the jets where does that live? Now that the reincarnated. Winnipeg jets formerly, the Atlanta thrashers another conversation hopefully are now dome assailed in Winnipeg right where does that history? Officially and unofficially live is it a Phoenix is Winnipeg Do People not care. Obviously the the logos and the a lot of the the imagery and all that kind of stuff from the original jets franchise seems to have come back but that doesn't replace war bring with it the history of the original franchise or does it Not. Officially the the the the records of the of the NHL Franchise belongs with the Arizona coyotes. that's that's the the the relocated franchise. The the w.h eight years I don't even know what the coyotes even recognized. I'm not sure they should. Because if the team didn't play there I mean well start from being visiting team but. Throat owners. the current team in Winnipeg. Does play. Has embraced history. In recent years. But not not not not in a big way. And You know I'm just as how people thought to I I don't like. That was the Winnipeg jets and the current team is. they need to go their own way. And I I'd like to see that. Both both the W. h. a. and the NHL jets kind of have its own little. Mission in the Dustbin of history. That said though both Arizona and the new jets, right there's a convenient adjunct. There you have you had you had many championship seasons of the W. H., A. The winning tradition, and arguably the roots of top tier pro hockey. In the city of Winnipeg right to. To not you know somehow. Bow reverently or usually remember or throwback Jersey or something. You know somewhat rack against successful. What years it just seems like. That gets lost. We talked about this with with. A couple of folks on the old the the Minnesota North Stars and and the wild that have inherited some of that. Some of the Diaspora has gone to the sharks and and the Dallas Star I mean, it gets a little convoluted and you can get really historic and anthropological about it but regardless of where it gets domiciled or you know what I'm talking to a fan right? who kind of got hooked on the the latter years of the what right I I'm sure there's a generation or two that remembers the original franchise and maybe wants to kind of a little bit of that especially with Algo into the one I just I guess I'm just. Wondering and it's probably not answerable. What happens to that history and and is it? You know obviously it's a little crusade on this little show but. But but I also not it happened right and it's it can be embraced. By some by some legacies Plora that that just today. Yeah. And and you know I, I'd like to see that history celebrated more and it should be. But I don't think you'll see ever see the NHL. Do that. Even, in the hockey hall of fame in Toronto, I'm told the what section is under under minor leagues. and. That's a shame. And Unfortunately, it's. It's left to fans like me too. You know and on this you know and I on on your show to keep they keep those memories alive because I I don't trust the NHL to do it and I. Don't think they wanted. All right. Let's see. Now, the website you want to visit early, often Curtis Walker, dot com that's curtis with a C. C. U. R. T. I S.. Walker. Curtis Walker. Dot Com. That is the place to find all of the goodies that we had talked out and more including the Winnipeg jets memorial site. obsess about the W. H. Years of the Winnipeg jets there's the.

Feb 22, 2020 - US supermarket chain says pharmacy records hacked, a slip-up at a Winnipeg school board and the impact of ransomware

"The episode is brought to you by the maple sex satellite series. It wbz's first summit is scheduled for february twenty fifth and sponsored in part by dark trace and fortinet. It'll be the place to learn about evolving cyber threats. How to respond to them and much more for more information and to register visit. Www dot maple sack dot ca. A us supermarket chain says pharmacy records. Were hacked a slip up at a winnipeg school board and the impact of ransomware. Welcome to cybersecurity. Today it's monday february twenty-second i'm howard solomon contributing reporter on cybersecurity for it world candida dot com earlier this month. I told you about a successful theft of data from the washington state. Auditor's office through a bug filed transferring application called excel aeon fda since then there have been more reports of data. Theft allegedly exploiting problems with that software. The latest crumbs from the american kroger supermarket chain on friday kroger acknowledged accelerate. Had told it that crooks had copied pharmacy records of some customers as well as some records of current and former employees through an acceleration application. The incident happened last month. Kroger owns a number of stores under its own brand and others. No credit card numbers were copied however according to a news report the information stolen from pharmacies may have included people's names email addresses phone numbers home addresses dates of birth social security numbers and medication. One of the biggest venture capital firms in the world is telling investors at some of their personal and financial information has been hacked. Victim is sequoia capital according to the axios news service. It says sequoia issued a statement that it had experienced a cybersecurity incident. Here's another one of those oopsy moments. Students set the winnipeg adult education centre. Were supposed to get a personal e mail link to their report cards last week each link was supposed to go to only one individual's information instead the link. Show the report cards for all four hundred students. According to the cbc winnipeg school board said the link was active for less than an hour and only forty students clicked on it before it was taken down. The school board has apologized. It's another example of a configuration error for leaders of organizations. That don't understand the impact of ransomware attack. Consider this summary presented last week by a north carolina county. That was hit in october and refused to pay up after losing use of its internet access. Office phones and voicemail. The county decided to rebuild its network infrastructure that meant completely wiping and re imaging servers and more than five hundred fifty computers of employees. That would make sure that any infection was removed. Some software needed to be upgraded or changed as well. The imaging and software changes took three months. It helped the nearby municipalities and the county emergency management service loan the county some laptops having cyber insurance also help with costs but four months after the attack the county is still restoring some business system's network connections and phones the cause of this attack someone clicked on an email attachment with a poison document. The report is an update because this month the ransomware gang has started releasing the data that had copied by the way for those who think. It's cheaper to pay a ransom. Don't forget that victim organizations that do will still likely have to rebuild their network to make sure there are no back doors and the attackers can't come the and again more on ransomware. One of the latest victims is underwriter laboratories. The service at certifies the safety of electrical designs of products in the united states canada and other countries.

"Without A Magnet That Attracts Investment We Have Nothing"

"We'll good morning Chris and thank you for coming down to the Winnipeg Metro Office to Have a conversation with us about Metro region planning and strategic infrastructure the structure investment and really wanted to pick your brain a bit about you know some of the projects that we've been working on collaboratively over the the years around strategic she took infrastructure investment and the importance of transportation. And I just wanted to talk to you a bit about you. Know the Metro region growth plan. And what that means and how that all fits together with strategic investment in. What your thoughts on that? Well I think if we do it right. The should be an exciting time in. It should be legacy see line drawing time in the sense that if we're going to compete regionally nationally continentally or globally at. We have to set the table and for that to happen. Manitoba has to lead It has to have the partnership of the Metropolitan Region municipalities it has to create the investment environment. And that does that. In part by ensuring that we are competitive from a tax perspective that we have a well planned and maintained and strategically investment based infrastructure that supports trade and welcomes investment from outside the province in particular and and we have a business approval process. That doesn't make it impossible for the absence of certainty as it relates to. If I apply I when will I know what the decision is. So it's an important time for Manitoba. It's an important time for the capital region and it's an important opportunity for rose to really create a bed upon which we can establish new jobs and investment. You know you've been at this a long time. I think since Nineteen ninety-one you've been with Manitoba. NATTO heavy construction association. And before that you had a long history and politics and you're a city councillor think for eight or twenty nine years and you're a city counselor for nine years. What are some of the changes you've seen in these same last twenty five years and why do you think now might be an opportunity to actually get this done? I think for the first time there's reason to be reasonably optimistic that there is a willingness is to separate clutter from substance and that historically it's been the clutter of silo thinking of Constituency priority issues only to the detriment of the broader bigger picture that has prevented Manitoba achieving. What what it has yet to achieve so I think the separation of clutter substance is something that is emerging what what I hope? Emerges is a disciplined purpose driven vision embracing direction by the province in real real not just spoken. Partnership with the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region. The eighteen municipalities are really the key to the engine of Manitoba's economic growth and her opportunities. And I hope that that is something that is recognized. By the current provincial government government that the w Maher municipalities realized the pivotal role that they play and that we embrace the concept of. Let's together grow grow Manitoba so Chris. You're also one of the founding directors on the Border Center for Canada. And can you just tell us a little bit about you. Know why central for Cata important for a growing metro region wide. which should be keeping an eye on this I'm going to paraphrase Perrin Beatty? Because that's a really good question Perrin Beatty said there's there's the infrastructure we want like parks and recreation the infrastructure we need like healthcare and education. And then there's the infrastructure that pays for it in its is trade infrastructure. Manitoba historically has been a trade and transportation hub. We lost a little bit of that luster. We lost a lot of that position for a variety of reasons that are historical in nature however we now have the opportunity of reinvigorating and reinvesting and and reengineering our place in our country our place in the continent and our place in the world and Senate report. Is that ticket now. For those who say it's not important and hasn't hasn't been embraced by the private sector. I simply point out to the seven hundred million plus dollars already. Invested in the centerpoint footprint mostly lead by companies and investment entities from outside Manitoba and from outside Canada who believe in the motto that centerpoint stands for better cheaper faster global. We'll trade better cheaper faster. Domestic Trade better cheaper faster continental trade and all of that spells jobs and Growth Center. Port is the Lynch pin investment a legacy investment that can and will transform who we are as a province in our country on the continent and in the world. Okay Okay Chris. Although central port is located in to the Metro region municipalities. Can you. Just tell me a little bit about how that benefits the entire region will without a magnet that attracts investment. We have nothing so it really wouldn't matter that we have a capital region or don't have a capital region the magnet that is investing that is attracting. The investment is sad report because where it is geographically located it happens to straddle the borders as of two municipalities but from my perspective. That's irrelevant. What is relevant is that we have trade transportation investments? What's relevant as we have all three three class one rails intersecting the footprint? What's relevant is that we are proximate to the global market parks to the US market the weekend? Be One of Canada's global trade gateways if you look at western Canada we should be. Harnessing Churchill Center report in Manitoba and in British Columbia Prince is Rupert and Delta Port as Canada's four global trade gateways to ensure that western Canada as a trade corporation provides the kinds of of investment opportunities and careers jobs that we aspire to and Manitoba use a linchpin to that being possible and although a lot of the activity Eddie is happening. In and around the center area there has to be spin-off benefits to the other municipalities. If we're gonNA work regionally the benefits are shared by everyone line well and those benefits are already beginning to materialize. We have shared water services. We will have the extension of sewer and water until the West lands of of Senator Port. We will have have investment in trade enabling infrastructure that straddles. Not Just Rosser win a big. But other of the surrounding municipalities. It enables the reality of transportation moving people to jobs and products to market. It enables the reality of jobs enables the reality of careers and enables does the reality of a certain and enhanced standard of living and those people live all over the region. They work all over the region there's businesses that you know L. A.. Rely on the trade and manufacturing and the hub that's created central port to have their businesses across the Metro region and beyond the egg sector sector is not based just in the capital region. It's all over the province but it needs facilities that can receive an export to market the products that our egg sector grows again. That's a role that centerpoint can discharge and can discharge effectively again better faster. Cheaper announce good for all of us. Excellent will thank you Chris. We really appreciate the support of Manitoba Heavy throughout the years. We'll look for your continued involvement and engagement as we begin to move this plant forward. You'll have what do you think's at stake if we don't do this well. Our our social and our economic wealth our ability took provide careers opportunities for our kids and and their kids Basically our quality of life and standard of living is what's at stake. We have the geography we have the location. We have the necessary inputs to become a global trading partner and player. But it's really dependent on us. Are we prepared to make the necessary decisions. Are we prepared to shape and execute on a vision and on a mandate That warms up to the notion that investment is good. Foreign investment is excellent That all of that combined creates an expanded and in hand standard of living and quality of life in a fantastic province. So Chris do you have one piece of advice that you might give Metro region mayors and reeves as they begin to envision in how they're going to execute this collaborative regional plan. I think probably the most difficult challenge at the same time it should be. An easy decision is to lose the notion of silo thinking It is so important to embrace a partnership It is so important to embrace a vision. It is so important to understand that the market will decide where it wishes to invest but without that investment none of our silo priorities at will ever come to reality. So it's the broader vision. The broader good the broader picture that we need to paint cleaned and be disciplined to its purposes. Chris you know even tasked to create a regional land use servicing and infrastructure prioritization Strategy or plan for the Metro region. And you know we are going to need all hands on deck for this. We're going to need to be working with our private partners.

"Welcome to winnipeg's podcast episode one fifty one for february twenty fifth. Twenty twenty one. Today we're going to have a phone call with mortgage mike about options for divorcing couples. And how to keep one of them in the house if they want to and we're going to have a phone call with vancouver agent. Tam barkley up at how crazy their market is very interesting. Stuff today on pigs real estate podcast coming up. You're listening to the bono's real estate podcast tips and advice for home buyers sellers and donors with award winning remax agent kaufman. Hello everybody it's bo. Kaufman remax performance wheel t residential real estate specialists. And let's get right into it today. People houses for variety of reasons. Most of the reasons are happy ones. Most of the times. You're family's growing wanna buy a bigger house. You get a promotion. You can afford a bigger house that kind of thing or the other way you downsizing your kids have moved out and you're ready to give up house ownership and maybe a move into a condo. But sometimes the reasons aren't happy ones such as in the case of divorce and quite often couples end up selling the house and each having to go out and buy another house. But there are other options as i was just talking to my buddy mortgage mike a couple of days ago and he was mentioning that. There's actually programs out there that help one of the parties. Keep the house and by the other party out. So let's give them a call and see what that's all about. Ask me. hey mike it's kaufman calling how are you. Hey yourself good. I was just telling The listeners that there are options for people that are going through a divorce on how to deal with the house. The communal house options other than having to sell it. And because you put the bug in my ear so what can you tell me about that. Here's a one thing. Couples often tell me whether go into divorce is that they don't want to sell the house. That's the whole nick. Children are living in. That's near where the schools are. They don't want to disrupt their lives but they don't think they can't keep house. They actually can't fact as a special programs in place that allows into that. Okay walk us through the steps. What's the first thing they have to do. So you have to have a separation agreement in place already. Who's actually living in the house. Who by a who. You also have to spell out. Who owes what part of what narrative death rates of your credit card. Who's paying child support. Cells all has restored out with a lawyer in advance. But the key veges usually when you refinance a house you can only pull out eighty percent of the home diane aquit so if you have three hundred thousand dollar home you can only pull out eighty percent of that meteor leaving equity in their if you that might have pay off those those you can accessed with this program actually access ninety five percent of the equity in your home so would allow one part of the stay in the narrow home maintain mystical never is pay off the other partner who can now go shopping for new house and it makes the least bad option of potentially bad situation right. That's awesome new so the person that staying in the house has to qualify for the mortgage at st. Are they still standard checks or are they relaxed a little bit so it is a standard policies before in terms of income credit down peanut and that is where the key reasons why you have to have a separation remained a little. You're wonder what's is their child. Support israel support and so talking you'll mortgage broker can be a good idea to nation numbers. Resuscitate actually qualify for mortgage. Afterwards we can actually offer consulting to you or what numbers yet to get or to qualify for more words. Well that's interesting so you're part of the process and for sure when people unfortunately have to go through a divorce. We know that fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. Unfortunately but You can be part of the solution at that point exactly so. Think of me as a consultant. They can show you the numbers you need so both parties leaves making the best of that situation. That's what we're here for his mortgage brokers and then you get to stay home and that's what's important all right. We're going to cut it off here but you told me that there's more to this topic that maybe we're going to talk about next week. Kind of set that up right now. Sure who will also may have options to pass marriage debt and if more things as well so these are conversation after time. All right excellent. I'll give you a show next week. Thanks mike sounds good to have a nice day. Bye bye so what we learned here. Is that the our options. If you are getting divorced there are options for one of you. Stay in the house. Make it a little easier on on the children So they don't have to find to new places and consider making a mortgage broker or mortgage specialists part of your team when you're getting a divorce hopefully it's amicable because that will save you a lot of money in the end. In fact i wrote an article about how you can save money by by keeping things amicable as much as possible and at article is available on my blog. Just go to bono's dot homes slash divorce up next we're gonna phone. Tam barkley an agent in nor at the north shore in vancouver and see what the markets all about so a couple of days ago an agent vancouver reached out to me to be on the podcast and her name is tom barclay. And as you're going to hear from the accent. She is a londoner who moved to canada about Ten years ago and she was actually an agent in london england. So i want to take this opportunity to find out what the differences are. 'cause i i have heard that there's a difference between real estate in england or even in europe in general but especially in england when compared to how we do things here so i wanted to take an opportunity to talk to her and at the same time. Talk about the vancouver market. It's i think you're gonna find this very interesting here. We go so. Let me ask you this. I've got a you have a unique insight into this. You were an agent in london and now you've been here for ten years. What are the biggest difference between london. I'm not talking about a letting. Agent selling error listing or a buyers asian. What's the big differences in real estate between there and here. Well what happens. Is it with the letting agents to you when you want to sell a property you take it to a a brokerage and that brokerage sells it an axe for on seller. So you don't have a passion that what what she owned sites and what is very frustrating in the uk. Because i've sold my property. And what. I found difficult was that there was no commitment from from a bias so you agree a price and people can consumption because they tell each other the price you go in and bid i can go in today and say right. I wanna pay eight five age and somebody will say right. I'm gonna pay eight six age and we all know what each other offerings an election. Whatever you but when you agree a price with with abaya you You need to take it off the market we've gone accepted offer but the contracts will take a good couple of months to do it and no deposit so they could remove your property. You agree to do this. And three months later. They can put out. You've got to go on. Why is there. No deposit has they. Don't do deposits. not as a commitment. He allows a week a day before. You're about to complete my god. Yes it's really stressful. That seems really backwards and you. It's very stressful. No kidding and did you say that you're like if let's say you the home seller and you call this brokerage and they're selling it for you they act for both the buyer and the seller. Yes okay so do you. Even have buyer's agents out there isn't it won't so and you're listening with that brokerage should the only day into the senate relieved corporation there's mls. There's oh it's very different in the way that they do it. And i couldn't believe how quickly you buy probably here. I was very shocked. I remember doing a deal with chapman. I was bidding on something and this is vancouver. Did i don't even chef on monday. We went out on tuesday. We found something. We office were on wednesday and so he was a cash buyer. And i knew. I wasn't gonna be the highest price but i wanted to fast. Knew he wanted keys like asap. Sarang notre Can i do a deal. She said you can even to cash by. You can actually close on friday the keys on saturday you fell off my chair and so i said okay so i wrote the alva. There was about six office in the realtor. Quote me and said you're not highest but we're gonna go with you because you are foster is right and we go to accepted. Oh from wednesday. We closed on friday. And i shouldn't gave him the keys on saturday and it took nearly three months to buy property in the uk. And yet. here. I did it in three days. What do you like better. I'm very quick on my speed. No kidding yeah. That's that's probably the fastest ever heard so usually that doesn't because it helps that your by a cash buyer you have to wait for a bank mortgages to come through and all that kind of stuff. So awesome. Does some today okay. So you said you have to offer like you work for brokerage is to office. North shore and downtown. Yes they have one in each round couva just main street just out just on the outside the downtown and they just opened a new office in the north shore in lynn. Vattimo earth Okay so pretend. Because it's a real thing. Pretend i don't know anything about rank cooper. I've never been there. What's the north shore. What's the market. There is a luxury homes or is it. it is luxury definitely premium market in the north shore. And it's just got such a lovely lifestyle at environment very safe. Very children friendly beautiful trails. You can ski. This got three ski hills. It's a huge drool to people and what's funny is if a lot of i've noticed a lot of children that grew up in the north shore tend to move away at comeback by on the no show. It's it is. It's always been in pre market and houses. I mean i have a story for you. happened about two weeks ago. Sure to here in my neighborhood. So i'm in a neighborhood Cavalry goal and one of my clients did a pre inspection. The listing came on. It was an old house which woking needed work. The pre inspection consistency was interesting to me. What do you consider old. It was a this was a this was a nineteen twenty two house. Okay agree hold those two sure it had needed probably about hundred grounds while on the outside and the hopeless needed gushing in. So you're looking at about two fifty hits do a whole gut one. My husband is a builder. So i kind of approximate prices for ange listed at one four and really old houses. Maybe nineteen fifties the only You're talking one point. Four million yes okay. They had ten pre inspections thirty one office had of homework today and it went for one point eight while and really you can buy a one point eight hills at least. It's a little bit more renovated and put together. I mean they need to spend a good line of money to bring it up your pa. I was shocked myself was it was the location that sold it or just a character of it her. It was a nice lot so it was a flat lot with a view place to a school so it wasn't nice launch location. What's what's an average home in that north shore area. Did you happen to know what the average sales i think. We're about one five one point. Five eight five point for him here. What about your other location more towards central downtown conditions as you're just looking at the tax detached you're you're you're looking at a similar price point really one point or one point six million in downtown condos eighty five or something like that. Wow okay yeah. We don't have numbers like that at all. so okay. so you had thirty one offers for that house. North shore as a real properties Starting on and because there's not enough stop people don't wanna move instead of. We're seeing exactly the same thing so last year. This time for winnipeg numbers are average at this time of year. Mid-february is about eleven hundred house on the market in winnipeg not the surrounding areas in whitby eleven hundred detached houses. This this week we have five heart so it's much it's less than half and like you say i've got three or four buyers that need to find something before they put on the market. So it's kind of you know somebody has to take the first step and i think once this cold smell drops it'll start coming we've had last year. It was really bizarre near the end of the year bidding on everything that came up if it was straight and level even if it needed a ton of work it was getting multiple offers. I think that's the year we're going to have again this year. it's hot. I'm working with a lot of bias and i mean i can actually quickly but obviously when you're competing with so many people and you know it's difficult because they're looking at a price point but if it exceeds so much on price point it's you're already you know pushing the limits with you'll cons to try and get them into that price point that they wanted the era they want so if the now been one hundred fifty to one hundred eighty over us game in some of the detached Going then now now having to look at something like at one point two in the looking at one point four right exactly know preaching to the choir just lower numbers here but it's the same. It's the same process. Well i certainly hope you enjoyed this information. I really like making phone calls to other agents and other cities especially in this case where tom had information on what business was like in london. England so i thought i found it interesting.

Playoffs Taking Shape

"The. Is that game misconduct podcast with Don. League-record at welcome to the Wednesday should of game is conduct. I am Don league-record just three games to go over. But a couple of my thought were pretty intriguing jets with a four three win in Boston over the Bruins as it was the Kyle Connor show. The gotta done for the Winnipeg Jets for twice in regulation. Got the only goal in the shootout as Bergereon got a late goal for Boston tied at three after he scored early in the game to give Boston to one to nothing lead. Boston does get the point at home. But Winnipeg bounces back after a tough loss in Philly that I before to pick up the win so Connor scores twice and thirty four seconds gets the decisive goal in the only goal really in shootout. As Winnipeg wins that game is they are starting to show. Even though they've been a little sluggish over the last. Couple of weeks that they are still the team to beat in the central division and Boston needs to mind their Ps and qs as well. They had that loss. If you remember to the Rangers at home, they end up losing to Winnipeg at home. So a couple of home losses for Boston. They've not dropped to the wildcard they did pick up their sixtieth point. But they played fifty games. So they're the first wildcard Pittsburgh's the second wildcard, Pittsburgh's two points back. But with a game in hand. Now Boston is right there. Just the point back a Montreal for third with a game in hand. So things are very very tight. So you want to try to get those points when you can and Boston did get that goal with a little less than eight minutes or nine minutes to play in regulation to get back into the game tied at three and earned the point. But they did lose that point in overtime or shootout. The could come back haunt them. Something to kind of keep an eye on because this Eastern Conference us tightening up in buffalo, certainly crawled back into this one as they ended up blowing a four two lead in Columbus. Against the blue jackets, but they win the game which was important for them five to four because they're going to need everyone. They can get here down the stretch. Because even though they're very close to a plow spot. They really can't afford to let games and leads like they did slip through their fingers even against a pretty good Columbus blue jackets team, Jeff Skinner scores again for the sabres is thirty first goal of the season. And then Connor Sheree, which is a nice underrated pickup by the sabres from Pittsburgh scores early in the third period is eighth of the year. The snap time get the buffalo. Sabres the win so savers play again tonight against Dallas. So they've got a chance to make up some ground here. But there's really not a lot of teams on the outside with a chance to make the playoffs. Carolina barely holding on right now four points back a Pittsburgh for that wildcard spot. But buffalo picks with a win two points back of Pittsburgh. They both played forty nine games. Pittsburgh does have more wins forty twenty. Eighty six to twenty five and the row wins are clearly in favour of Pittsburgh, twenty five twenty two buffalo, still a minus three. Gold of ranch old Pittsburgh's plus twenty. So that kind of tells you that Pittsburgh should eventually right their ship. Even though they've lost two in a row and played five hundred hockey here over the last ten games that have dropped four or five. Remember, the sluggish western trip, and then another loss to the devils which just blows my mind back on Monday. Now, Pittsburgh tonight has got Tampa, which is a huge test. So a really good opportunity here for the sabres if they get a win against Dallas. That's going to be tough at a Pittsburgh loses to Tampa than the buffalo. Sabres will find themselves right smack in that playoff situation. The only other game last night of the three was the Rangers getting shut out by Philadelphia. The final score. There was one to nothing kind of strange game yet to backup goaltenders going against each other in Alexander Georgi of Anthony stole ours. And it was stole ours. Who stole the show literally made some big saves against Kreider on the power play in the second period. Rangers gross. Outshot Philadelphia for the jar this game thirty eight to nineteen for the game but stole ours. Just would not be denied gets a second NHL shutout in seventeen starts and Philadelphia's now on five in a row the Rangers three game winning streak goes by the boards. And I'm really not sure how much you can criticize the Rangers. Even coach David Quinn said didn't like the start a little bit of a sluggish start which they gave up the goal to to Lynn home. And that Lindblom excuse me, the made a one nothing amid in forty seconds into the game. And that was it. I had a chance to talk to Ryan Strom at the end of the first period. And I asked him did Philadelphia have an advantage having played the night before and you had gone ten days without playing and he said maybe in the first couple of shifts while the first couple of shifts is were Philadelphia got their goal and neither team scored again. But the Rangers were the better team. I thought they executed. Well, I thought they drove to the net. Well, got quality shots just stole ours. Stole it literally. I mean, that's going to happen sometimes in games. So I'm not sure the Rangers should make getting. Adjustments. They had to go with seven defensemen eleven forwards. Pablo butchnevich was a healthy scratch. Mat-su guerrillas got the infected foot and now Brett how and went down with a knee injury. And he's going to be evaluated. Looks like he might be out for a while. So it's becoming clear to me. Now, even though the Rangers are still mathematically alive, and they had this little bit of a spurt with a three game winning streak the visiting that has to clearly start thinking about the future. And now it's about getting everybody healthy like Hayes who did come back into the line of playing for the first time since January second with the upper body injury. Try to get Matsue Carello playing. He was doing very well five game point scoring streak nine points in that span before the foot infection because you've got to start trading. These guys I mean, that's what's going to have to happen here. And it's kind of frustrating doing the show here in New York and doing ranger games. There seems to be this momentum building among ranger fans that you can't trade Kevin Hayes. I understand you want them to be a part of your future. But you gotta think he went and became an unrestricted free agent by signing just. One year deal. All right. He had a bet on myself deal where he wanted to have a big year for the Rangers. We can parlay that into big contract. It was smart and outside of the injuries. It's worked. He's had a good season. But he's a center he complained wing. I talked to Dan Rosa from NHL dot com and the second intermission last night. He said teams are very interested. I think you can look at Winnipeg. He would be a perfect fit there for a for a rental to try to win the Stanley Cup. I think Dallas would be interested. I think Nashville would be interested. It's probably couple of Eastern Conference teams. They would love to give something up for Kevin Hayes because of his versatility. And of the team like Winnipeg who's really looking to make a splash, you might really get something significant back, and then he's gonna test free agency. Otherwise, he wouldn't assign the one year contract he wants to get the July. First he wants to test free agency for the first time in his career. And then you evaluate you assess. And then if you really want him you can sign him if he wants to be arranger and the Rangers want them, then they're gonna have an excellent chance. After July first to sign him. But you cannot take the risk of having employee on your team you not make the playoffs hens of having a big year. And he's able to get a big contract and signs with somebody else, and you could have gotten something for him. And you didn't she got to use your brain here? I understand he's a popular player, and you do run the risk if he goes to Winnipeg and falls in love with it. Or he goes to Nashville falls in love with it and resigns with them. Hey, there's always that risk. I remember last year. It was all you can let Grabner go because they'll resign him at the end of the year. Anyway. Well, he signed with the devils in any ended up going AirAsia. I'm not sure that was a bad thing for the Rangers. But it is is an example of where everybody thought it was a foregone conclusion that he'd come back and he didn't Hazel bit of a different situation. I think the Rangers will pony up for him. Now, if you can get a contract with him before the end of the year will then that's great. But otherwise you would have been able to do that last season. So let's just see how it works out. But if I get an offer, and I'm blown away. On the Rangers. I gotta do it as popular as mat-su Carello is and he would hate to leave you can get something pursuit. And I and the Rangers have to start thinking that way that letter meant something that letter that they sent out to the fans year ago was that they were they were going to think about the future so holding on zuccarello holding on the Hayes when you have an opportunity to bring in assets that can help you in the future and eventually play with the young players that you have in the heels and the Anderson's and the hounds and the guys that are already down in Hartford. That's what this organization's got to think about not all want to keep hold of our popular players and put people in the building and still give some sort of semblance to you're gonna win. Otherwise, why did you send the letter out? And you could continue to do what you were doing. So I think the Rangers will be smart about this. And now they just got to get those guys healthy and continue to play. Well because it starting to look like even though you're mathematically still alive as we as they play their fiftieth game tomorrow in New Jersey does not apply. Playoff team. So let's take a look at the games tonight. Again, piecemeal here in the second half of the year. Just the two games as I said penguins lightning. That's a marquee match up. Very interesting to see where Pittsburgh is right now five and five in their last ten two losses in a row going up against the lightning team in twenty seven games above five hundred min you're kidding me. And they were very much on display during the course of the all star game the kucherov the stamkos of the world. So interesting game there, and I think the sabers and the stars interesting. That's a tough turnaround for buffalo. Columbus in Dallas. Not that close. Okay. So they played in Columbus last night. Now to go to Dallas tonight. Very short turnaround for an eight thirty face off eastern time. Buffalo co in this game in Dallas, which is going to be a toll order for sure. They'd find themselves right in the thick of things of Pittsburgh where lose they bataille for that final playoff spot. Pittsburgh would have the tiebreaker. But buffalo kind of creeping up as I think they and Carolina. The only two teams outside of the playoffs and eastern. Conference with a realistic chance of making the playoffs. Or I let's hear from you at dollar Greco. Hashtag game is conduct. Ricky says with rumors of coyotes moving to Houston, which would balance out the western divisions. Do you see a back and getting a team? I think he would have to be a move with either the Panthers or the hurricanes. I could think I would think that Canadian economics would also have to factor too. That's the problem is right now, it's about seventy five cents on the dollar and for people that don't understand what that means is is that the Canadian franchises take in Canadian money and pay their players in American money. So when the Canadian dollar is worth seventy five cents to the American dollar that does not translate into good finances. Now, they get huge tax breaks in the United States. They do not have in Canada. So that's another disadvantage. That's why Quebec moved in the first place. That's why Winnipeg moved in the first place. So that's why I think Beck would have had a team ready had the dollar in a little. More even but Gary Bettman's got to be very conscious of do not put these teams into fiscal disarray before they even get started. Now Quebec's gotta lay up because they've gotten arena, they're ready to go. That's why I thought it was more realistic. If Calgary does not get their new arena from the province of L Berta Canadian franchise moving to another Canadian city, make some sense as much as I'd hate to see the flames move as much that that was send the whole Eastern Conference Western Conference thing in a bit of flocks that might be the more optimistic way for Quebec get team. They're not expanding anymore. Seattle's getting their franchise, and you could say we'll Florida just up and moving because Florida's had problems drawing fans, and all that is that is that fiscally responsible because of the way the Canadian dollar is. And you can maybe hope the Canadian dollar evens itself up. This does happen. But there has to be sustainability. I'd love to see the Nordiques get back into the league. That would heat up the rivalry with Montreal. It's a tremendous city. That would support the team. It's just very difficult, and they will struggle as they did when they were here in existence getting free agents because even though it's a little bit better had a conversation with mardi Buron a couple of years ago at one point it was only two percent English speaking, I think it's a little bit better now. But still you go to Montreal. And you say Hello to a local. They will say Hello back. They will understand that you speak English, and they will speak English to you you start venturing outside of Montreal to some of the suburbs. It's very difficult. But at least in the city, you can conduct yourself. There's a lot of English speaking people they have an English-speaking broadcast. I remember when the Nordiques were there. They didn't even give the goals and the penalties in English was exclusively in French. They didn't have any English broadcasters. It's all French there, and that's beautiful, but sometimes four English-speaking free agent. Do they want to go there and go to a country and go to a city where they don't speak the language it could? A little awkward to. So these all the things that have to be taken in consideration. I'd love to get them. A new franchise, but with expansion off the table, then with the dollar is weak as it is compared to the US dollar could be a little bit of a problem. Tom says, hey, Don, here are the standings as of Sunday using the alternate point system. Three points for regulation win two points for an overtime win one and a half for a shootout win and one for an overtime loss. Also idea to fix playoffs. Two division winners. Get top two seeds in conference three see-through eight regardless of division less. Same matchups every year while like that idea. That's a pretty good one. So here would be the standings. And we've had this conversation a multitude of times here on gay misconduct about changing the point system, and weighing it more regulation as opposed to over time in the shootout. And I've told you my negatively about it. But hey, let's just go with it here because Tom's done the work Nashville believe it or not would be. Your first place team with eighty eight point five points with a record of thirty eighteen and four okay. Now, they've played four more games than Winnipeg. Winnipeg is the second place team with eighty seven point five. The islanders would be the third place team and the best team in the Eastern Conference with eighty five points. Okay. Well because they would be leading their division. I'm sorry. We would still go onto that thing because Toronto has eighty seven points. They'd be in fourth Vegas would be in fifth with eighty five point five Montreal with Eighty-three Washington. Seventy nine point five Boston eighty point five Columbus, eighty Pittsburgh, seventy eight point five so they go one two three four five six seven eight your top eight teams would be Nashville Winnipeg the islanders Toronto Vegas mantra, Washington and Boston Columbus would be nine. Pittsburgh would be ten. Minnesota eleven Carolina would be twelve buffalo thirteen. Eighteen Colorado fourteen Dallas fifteen Vancouver sixteen. So how about that? When you take a look at it that would put your top sixteen teams right there. The other interesting thing that Tom did because we talked about how crazy it is with goal differential based on what I just mentioned. There would only be four of the sixteen teams that would have a minus goal differential with Dallas at minus two in buffalo at minus four. So those teams could very easily finish with a plus goal differential before the season comes to an end kind of interesting. I like it. I don't like the half point aspect of it. And as I mentioned before I don't like the idea of you know, the the best team in the league like Tampa welcoming in Los Angeles beating them they get three points, but of Los Angeles where go to Tampa win in overtime. They'd only get to when I would think what the kings accomplish was much greater than the lightning accomplished. But that's neither another but good work, Tom. I like that Donald says, hey, Don, my question is for you. If the. Allders make the playoffs. And if they do what is the best players. They should get at the trade deadline since Lou is running the show while I think they need a little bit more depth on the blue line of the Ford wouldn't be a bad idea as well. The question that I think a lot of people have about the islanders is this Robin Lener situation for real is this just a hot streak or is. He someone you're comfortable with going to the plows. If Jonathan quick became available, and he was healthy any cleared those lower body injuries. Would you do that? If Columbus wanted to get something for ski. Let's say Columbus started the fall out of this thing. He's a free agent lugos for even over Brodsky has not had a lot of help in the postseason does never resume of postseason success. Would you do that? Would you try to upgrade between the pipes? Because you believe that this. Leonard thing is just a flash in the pan. That's something Lou has to try to figure out and I'm not sure, but we've got a lot of hockey between now and February twenty fifth to figure it out. Maria's this Don hope your day is going good. I would just wondering why do the Blackhawks ever trade Panara n-? He is such a stud and even wanna Cup with them. Thanks. Well, again, it just came down. To his free agent status. A chance to be able to get something in return as they did with Brandon Saad who they liked and there's a very good possibility mareo that when he becomes a free agent. He will return to Chicago because he loved it there. Now, the Rangers in the Maple Leafs are other teams that are rumored to be very much interested in him and also pioneer and being interested in them. But I think it kind of came down to a Kevin Hayes situation, we're on a rebuild. He's the guy that you know, is going to become a free agent. Let's get something for them. And now, let's see if we can deal with him once we can become a free agent, which is smart business for the Blackhawks says with that win by the jets over the Bruins last night at the garden. Don, home teams are eighteen and twenty six in the shootout this year. That's not a lot of happy fans. What say let's say we bring back ties if teams are even after overtime and split the two points. I'm with you. I never had a problem with. Is I never understood people saying I would rather lose the game than tie. I mean, you go to the game understanding that it's about getting points in the standings. You wanna win games? But the idea is to get points in the standing if I go to a game and watch my team play or or watch it on television. Listen to on the radio, the idea is. Yeah, I want my team to win. But get points in the standings. You lose a game, especially the old way. Oh, you didn't get any points. But at least got one point, hey that could be big in the standings that allows me to move up that allows me to catch up. I'm with you. I never had a problem with ties. Never did. I would definitely go back. I would definitely get rid of the shootout for sure now why is it eighteen and twenty six there should be no real advantage or disadvantage now that the home team gets to decide whether to go first or second. I would always go second. I'm like, I'm a baseball fan. So I want last licks the feeling as though I score the goal pressure on the other team. I find while watching the shootout I liked the idea to finish off a team. Not hope that I let them back in the game by giving them their last opportunity choice said if the NHL were to hold an outdoor game at Lambeau Field who should be in that match. And when should it be played? That's a good question while you're saying it should be a stadium series. Or should it be New Year's day? While again depends on the schedule. See the problem with these NFL venues on New Year's day is that it could be a bit of an issue you'd have to check the schedule of outta time making sure that that would not be a playoff you'd have to make sure it's during the week. Sometimes it's a bit of a problem because they don't like the whole idea of tearing up the field during the playoffs and all that she had the check. I would like I would think Lambeau Field is significant enough that that should be played on New Year's day. Now who plays while considering Wisconsin. You would have to get the Red Wings in the Blackhawks, right? When you look at the proximity of Lambeau Field, and there's no team in Wisconsin. And the two closest cities or Chicago and Detroit. Problem is how many more times we're going to see the Blackhawks. But that's my answer of thumb. Carl says, what is the return you expect for Hayes and Zouk while I think a lot more for Hayes than Zouk because there's versatility there. I would think a second or third round pick for his new guy. I don't think you get a first round pick. 'cause there's only certain places that he fits. Okay. And he does have a little bit of a streak in him where he plays. Well, and then he disappears for a little while. But I think he's an excellent playoff player, but that's hard to put a kind of figure on when Bobby team that might pick him up. Just a battle again to the playoffs. Hayes. We talked about his versatility. I think he can be a number to center, I can just imagine him on Colorado. Plug him in the second center. Rounding out a couple of lines there for the avalanche. So I would think you'd be able to get a first round pick certainly for as in probably a couple of prospects as well. I think the return could be pretty significant phrase Christmas I Don in honor of last night's boring one nothing flyers versus ranger's game. What's the most important? Most important exciting. One nothing game you've seen live. Hopefully, you'll get to see Carter heart. Play in their final game in March. And I'm gonna be calling that game. Chris. So not only will I be in the building. I'll be able to chance the call that game a little disappointed. I didn't get to see heart live last night but stole ours is a great story. You know, jersey kid born in Edison getting a shutout at Madison Square Garden. I thought that was kind of cool. He don't the my favorite one nothing game. Was again that was not at Chris. But I did watch it any go back into the late nineties when Hasha went up against bro door at the Meadowlands. Sabres devils an unbelievable game where they just played their hearts out. And that game was decided I believe in overtime, a no, no, no, I'm sorry. I'm taking that. All back da. You said one nothing in that kind of threw me off. It was a scoreless tie at the Meadowlands and one of the interesting aspects of that game. I wish I I remember the date. I can probably go back and look it up or somebody on Twitter will send it to me was a scoreless tie between Hodgkin Brodeur unbelievable game. And both of the goaltenders had this habit of keeping their game puck from sh of shutouts. But how do you do it? When both teams got shut out. They ended up cutting the puck and half, which I thought was great. So all the time ahead of can't think of any one nothing games. I I've seen some a lot. A lot of exciting think there was a I remember it was one nothing. I'd have to look it up. There was a game few years back devils Rangers of Madison Square Garden where Brodeur Lundquist were completely out of their minds. And then of course, the game was decided in the shootout Patrick Elliot should got the game winning goal. But that was that was a phenomenal phenomenal game as well. Matt says hi, Don, I know your wife is a halves fan, and they are quietly having a really nice season. So far, do you think they have a shot of holding onto a playoff spot and surprising? If you people thank you the best. Well, thank you, Matt. And I did get a chance to read your tweet to my life before I left for work today. So she thought it was kind of cool that there was a half's fan out there. It's all about Carey price. This team is obviously limited scoring goals. So price is going to be the guy that's going to have to continue to stand on its head. I think he's having excellent season. And it's interesting because I think he's really perked up since we were talking about how overrated he was. And I'm not taking credit for that. It was just ironic the timing of it. Anyway, if price could seize the way, the east plan, I think they can I really. Think they can it's going to be tough. Because again, you've got buffalo and Carolina looming. But because those are the only two teams that realistically can still make it an Montreal is proven that they've been able to distance themselves a little bit from that spot. I think they can hold onto it. Now, if price gets hurt which does happen on occasion that could be a bit of a problem for sure, but it's all about price. And I think they definitely can't hold onto it Avidan. If I'm saying that right? Don, you think it's time to allow non all stars compete in the skills competition like the NBA does the new format really limits who can compete, and it hurts the product of the skills competition hundred two mile per hour winning hardest shot is pretty weak. I agree. We get a chance to talk about that with EJ back on Monday. But the days of ally afraid eighty you know, day, no chara shea Weber. You know, those guys are out of it. So I would have no problem with that. I think it's a good idea. It's about or whether those players want to travel all the way. Out to the all star game just to compete in the skills competition. But right, you could have had today. No char and shea Weber that we're not all-stars participate in that. And you would have gotten a much harder shot than which John Carlson produced to win that competition. Same thing with the fastest skater to I'm with you. I think that's a great idea if the players association is cool with it than I am definitely cool with it. That was fun today. I wasn't really sure how much we'd be able to get into with just the three games last night. Just the two games to preview coming up tonight. But you know, what you guys had some great tweets and was great and fun and interesting conversation. So we're going to try to do this again tomorrow. We'll recap the big match ups from tonight. And even though there's only two games. I think both are significant lightning at the penguins and the sabres at the star. So we'll recap that will take more your tweets it at Donald Grega hashtag game is conduct. And we'll be able to preview Thursday, which again, light just three games. But some of them are very interesting including that Winnipeg blue jackets game in Winnipeg tomorrow, and then finally Friday it really opens. Itself up, and of course with the games, and we'll have our top five of the week. And all that so talk with you again tomorrow. This was the Wednesday edition of game has conduct.

(EP: 147) Winnipeg Real Estate Market Update January 2021

"Welcome to the first episode of when the podcast for twenty twenty one today. We're gonna look at the january market update and have a quick call with mike. Shorter of mortgage architects are coming up. You're listening to the bone knows real estate podcast tips and advice for home buyers sellers and donors with award winning remax agent bo kaufman right. Happy new year everybody. This is bowl confident. Remax performance realty and welcome to the first episode of twenty twenty one. This is winnipeg's real estate podcast and the first one in the month we always do our market update. And that's coming up next the Give you a little hint there. There's some awesome numbers some very interesting numbers coming out especially after the listings expired on december. Thirty first that's usually a big day when listening expire. And you're going to be surprised by how few listings there are on the market right now. Dry twenty neighborhood and you're going to be hard pressed to find for sale signs right now. That is this is probably the tightest of the market has been in sixteen years that i've seen it but first up. We're going to call my buddy. Mike shorter of mortgage architects. I've asked him to prepare a feel good story. Something that happened in twenty twenty where he helped somebody get a mortgage or help somebody out. That couldn't be helped anywhere else. And so let's see what he has to say. I think we start the year off on a positive note here. Let's see what he has to say. Hello hey mike. Happy new year. It's calling hey happy new year to you as well how you doing moreno. I'm doing great. How about yourself good. Good did you do a lot of partying over the years. I don't think you did right. Nobody did get together side. Enjoy some beautiful weather. We've been having lately. The this is awesome. I guess today was plus two whatever in january and it just gets us that much closer to the spring. Exactly what that means. Free market time hold Written article about what people should do to prepare and we talked about that in a couple of weeks ago. But now tell you i'm just want to call you can reach out and see if you've got a feel good story for something that Worked out well or somebody. You made happy to end twenty twenty. I do actually. I haven't existing clientele. What ellie to do. I need to keep in touch with my clients about once a year or so and i noticed that one of my clients from about two and a half years ago was paying an interest rate of over three percent now and the thing we thought that was actually a good rate not that long ago and so it gives them a phone. Look let's do the math and see dozen a sense for you to breaker mortgage. Yes or no and so what we did. We did the math. They did have to pay a penalty but they had a lot of equity in their home and we found that not only were we able to save above a hundred and fifty dollars a month on their mortgage payment but we were able to roll their car payment into their mortgage so now instead of paying their mortgage plus another five hundred and fifty dollars a month. The car we saved one hundred dollars a month. My mortgage payment saving five hundred dollars in a vehicle payment so a family of four is now going to be saving seven hundred dollars a month while saving for retirement. Let's let me ask you put some numbers on it. Like how high quote unquote was their mortgage like not the dollar amount but the the percentage here so they're interested. Their pain was about three percent. And and what are you able to get people now right now for them. We got read a one point. Six five percent is locked in or is that flexible. So it's actually unique product where it's a very mortgage but the payment amount doesn't change of interest rates go up what happens is interest rates. Go up the payments stays the same a little bit less dependent goes towards principal live a more towards interest. Sustainably can set their budget for the next five years. It's beautiful. I remember talking about that. A couple of episodes ago you are a big proponent of having an open mortgage especially when it's something like this where it's the lowest rate and let it fluctuate a little bit because let's face it three or two years. We thought three percent. It's as low as it's ever gonna go it. It isn't so this has worked out well. One of the reasons that like the variable is that it gives the lowest penalty and you have to break your mortgage as we say. Life is variable. Your mortgage should be okay. Awesome so you'd ended up saying seven hundred bucks a month And really nothing. They had to do other than to meet with you inside some. I exactly took maybe an hour and a half a work. They're going to save the money. The clients are very happy. A little bit of a cap off the gentleman works in the healthcare industry has been a very stressful year for him. He'll say long hours a lot of suffering they've seen and so they're really brighten their dead christmas really mental to me as well awesome. That's those kind of things that make us all feel good when we can help somebody. Everybody needs help. But that's really nice touch with the healthcare service. That i like that. It was a nice capital very busy year for us. What do you see happening in the next couple of months. You probably an overnight but the the number of listings are way down. are you seeing activity. Has it dropped off is expected pickup of. What are you seeing right now. So i have a lot of clients who've been preapproved who are struggling to find the right house. Find a place that where they actually accept their offers are getting accepted. And so there's a lot of buyers who want to buy a home. They see the value in buying home. But then i'll finding the right place thought putting home market. It could be a good opportunity for that. And i said that in my recent podcast. I think a week ago. I said the first few houses now when they coming on the market they should see some really good activity on their listing. Solve if you're listening to this if you've got a house even a condo but house especially in a two hundred fifty range of five four hundred thousand anything in there. It's there's gonna be some good activity on one other thing to consider. Is that either if you own rental property right now or if you thought about owning property we've got rental rates right now in the one point seven to one point eight range and the best part is you can pay it off over thirty years and so you can get a very low payment on it. And there's a lot of demand right now for rental so be very profitable. Tiny byron lower property or to refinance a rental property. Lower your payment pulsing equity out and make more the. That's good and again if you can find a property that's the problem. I looked at a couple of days ago last year this time. We had eleven hundred houses on the market. A guest how many we had january first this year. I'm gonna guess maybe a tenth of that. Oh it's not that big a drop but instead of eleven we had four hundred eighty the lowest in entire city of winnipeg in all price ranges. so that's way way down. Normally we would be around one thousand nine hundred thousand eleven hundred as be that low. It's tough for anybody to find house. So even for investors who want to buy a rental property and condos is the same picture lost you. We had five hundred six available on january first this year. Three hundred eighty only guinness so anyway. So i- great. It was great talking to you and we'll keep doing this again throughout the year. People are listening. Because i had a couple of phone calls and To get a hold of this guy. So that's that's good. It's obviously working would offer his mortgage indication so they're having more question always feel reach out to me and here to answer like him awesome. Thanks mike and we'll talk to you. Some sounds good. Take care kit by and that was schroeder of mortgage architects. You get a hold of them on cell at two or four two two nine three two one four or email him at margin at mike schroeder dot ca and of course the link will be in the show notes all right so let's take a look at an general market view of real estate market. The first thing we need to look how many houses and condos are available right now and the total number of houses available in winnipeg right now is four hundred seventy nine. I believe that's the lowest numbers in many years. That i can remember. Compare that to eleven hundred houses available last year. Same time similar pictures and condos. Not quite as extreme. There are four three hundred forty one condos available right now compared to five or six last year. Same time next. Let's take a look at how many houses and condos have sold over the past month and the biggest chunk of the market over fifty percent of all sales are houses between two fifty and five hundred thousand those houses in that price range that we sold two hundred nineteen. The next biggest piece of the pie is a hundred and six houses under two hundred and fifty thousand dollars and a smaller slices are the condo sales still fairly robust confer a condo market. We've got condos under a quarter million. We sold forty three condos over a quarter million sold thirty four. And that's all the way up to the highest price range. Let's see how those sales compare against last year over the past month. We sold one hundred six houses under a quarter million. And that's quite a bit more than the sixty nine we sold last year. Same time the two hundred nine thousand nine hundred houses we sold between the two fifty and five hundred thousand dollar range. That's nearly doubled. Our one twenty four of last year condos similar picture condos under a quarter million. The forty three we sold in a month of december is nearly double the twenty three. We sold the previous year and condos over a quarter million. We sold thirty four. Those compared to five last year listings are down. Sales are up so you can imagine what happens to the prices. Lots of bidding wars and increased prices. Okay so let's break that down into the four different categories houses under a quarter million dollars. Currently we have one hundred and thirty six available compared to last month which was to twenty seven. The most important comparison i feel is always against the last year. Same time period so last year. Same time we. We had available three hundred. Twelve houses median days on market. I'm just starting to track that this month. It's the first time i'm tracking. It was forty two days on market. Now sold houses launder a quarter million dollars to one hundred and six. We sold in december compared to one hundred and forty two the previous month by it also compares quite well against the sixty-nine we sold last year. December inventory days currently are forty days compared to forty eight the previous month. But that's way down. From one hundred and forty the previous year and inventory days basically means the lower the number the hotter the market average salt price in december for in this price range was one hundred eighty five thousand seven hundred down slightly from the previous month and actually down from about a year ago and the average days on market till it got sold was twenty nine days which is quite reasonable considering. It was december. Now let's move onto houses in the quarter million to half million dollar range. We have one hundred ninety five available right now. Compared to three hundred and six the previous month and way down from last year's five hundred and twenty one and the average days median days market is thirty seven. I am going to track that over the next few months sold houses in this price range between a quarter and a half million dollars that two hundred nineteen we sold during december is down from the three fourteen in november. But again it's way up from the one twenty four the previous year and inventory days. You can see last couple of months. Twenty eight twenty nine. That's a very hot market. Compared to one hundred and thirty a year ago average sold price in december was three hundred fifty five thousand in that price range and the days on market is twenty which is relatively low compared to last year in january last year we had forty four and moving up to condos under a quarter million dollars to one hundred ninety. Three that we've got available right. Now is way down from the to seventy eight the previous month and down from the two seventy two last year. Same time median days on market. Right now is fifty three For those condos now as far as condo sales go in the past month who sold forty three condors hundred and fifty thousand dollars. That's exactly the same amount as the previous month and it's nearly doubled the previous year that makes our inventory at one hundred and thirty nine days which is a fairly fast for condos. It's much faster than november was because there are less condos available and its way down from the three hundred and sixty six days the previous year so in other words a year ago it would have taken a full year to sell all the condos. That are out there right now. It only takes one hundred and thirty nine days. Average sold price for those condos was one hundred sixty nine thousand two hundred which is down quite a bit so there are many of the cheaper condos being sold lower priced condos days on market only took thirty six days. It's fairly fast for condominiums and winnipeg now looking at all available condos over two hundred fifty thousand dollars to infinity. There are one hundred and forty eight available. That's way down from twenty five last month in two thousand four last year as far sales goal we sold thirty four condos in this higher price range compared to twenty two the previous month and only five last year so the inventory days right now sits at one hundred and thirty five days. Three seven was the previous month and last year because we only had five sales and we had tons of bailable that fourteen hundred fifty days is really an outlier normally in this price range. You look at four hundred to five hundred days as the maximum range and the average condo sold in. This price range was three hundred and forty six thousand and it was thirty six days on market. Which is held steady for the last three months. I do hope you've enjoyed this audio presentation and starting this year with this i report. I've got a great new way of presenting the market updates.

S3:E23 - Diane Roussin of the Winnipeg Boldness Project on community driven prototypes, health and wellness of children, and a methodology grounded in Indigenous approaches

"Hello everybody for joining me again for another episode of apps. He connects podcast pause. They hope you're doing well on today's episode. I have diane russain joining me. From the winnipeg boldness project. So we're branching outside of oberdorf for this conversation The season you might notice the odd episode worry feature folks who are either working and living outside of berta or who have Some stories to share from projects that the that they were working outside of the provinces. Well and even though they're not in the province we find many perils of the work done across canada and beyond. So we're sharing those stories with all of you so yeah. My conversation with diane was wonderful. She has so much. Wisdom found myself jotting down more than once Quotes and sayings that she shared throughout the episode that i knew that i wanted to remember for myself so he wrote them down as a reminder and not only did we get some wonderful insights and wisdom from ban but she also talked about the winnipeg boldness project And how their theory of change and guiding principles really are the foundation and so embedded in everything that comes from from the boldness project And in this case we talked about the prototypes that come from the lab and a few of the examples of those how they worked really well and really how everything they do is community driven. I hope you enjoy the conversation that i was able to have with diane happy listening. Hello diane thank you so much for being here today It is truly a pleasure to have you on the show and to be hearing your insights knowledge so to get started. I'll just ask you to introduce you in thank you for inviting the mo is Really honored when people want to know more about what we're doing in winnipeg and what we're doing with a pig boldness though right now. The winnipeg project is situated in Treaty one territory. Otherwise known as winnipeg and i personally am initial bay and may t is my background. My father was may and he's passed away now and my mother is initial bay and all coming from treaty to territory. So that's who i am and i'm the project director for the winnipeg boulders project which is which is the topic. We're going to talk about today. Yes fabulous i'm excited to get into it And so we're gonna get into a right now and just if you could give a bit of an overview to what the wind paypal this project is that would be awesome just for context and then we'll really dive into the the meat of the topic. Which is the stories that we're going to discuss so yeah just to start. What is the winnipeg boldness project. Well at its most simplest. The winnipeg bull. This project is really trying to figure out how to make things better for babies that is the most simplest i can say You know the more formal description of that is you know. We're trying to look at health and wellness outcomes for for children and for families I will say that. Our methodology is definitely from an indigenous perspective and from an indigenous approach And that is certainly because of of the area that we're actually in were were situated in a physical neighborhood in winnipeg and so we do have a little bit of geographical boundaries that were working within otherwise called earth point. Douglas neighborhood and the other part of our methodology is this social innovation side of it. And so we're using this. Social lab approached him this social innovation tool to look at you know what are some of the communities ideas of how we might make it better for babies and so there is obviously lots of data out there. Lots of information out there that suggests that children in this neighborhood are perhaps not doing as well as they could be and so this whole project was initiated to to look at why is that and what can we do about it in so social innovation really likes to talk about complex social challenges and so the whole You know what does it take to make it better. For babies and why mike children not be thriving really starts pointing to these complex social challenges so that the whole lab approach is recognizing that you know we need to. We need to work in certain ways if we're going to be able to tackle those complex challenges so again the lab is is very much about that. Incredible that's fantastic Previously when we were talking you you've mentioned that you've created this theory of change. That really is your founding principles. Could you tell us what that theory of changes and how it guides the way. The winnipeg pulled pig boldness project operates. Well the pig bowl project much is sits on a foundation of relationships foundation of knowledge foundation of wisdom. And so i have. I have had the privilege of of being connected to to those relationships being connected to that wisdom and So you know when the pit bull. This has been around for about seven years now and so prior to that. I was working in this neighborhood. I it's very much you know Interconnected with so many other leaders and folks in this neighborhood all trying to make it better for families and so there's a way of working in this particular neighborhood that i've to to know That has been around for a long time like generations. I'm telling illich there's people who have you know really taught it to me and i and they talk about the people who taught it to them. So i just know that it's intergenerational this way of working and i do connect it very much to indigenous approaches to what are what's health and wellness. Digits approaches to children indigenous approaches to You know what's good families and so that way of working has been around for a long time. When the boldest came along the winnipeg idea of the igbo this project came along in on some of those early conversations and And again it when it project and folks who were wanting to start it knew they wanted to look at this whole issue of what what can we do about health among the seconds for children and so right away. I'm like well. There's a whole bunch of a lot about that so let's all work together and let's you know come up with some of these ideas because we already have a lot of ideas about that and some of the ideas were currently working on and some of the ideas just haven't really seen the light of day and so here's an opportunity to really bring those ideas forward because our ideas that super passionate about but we just haven't really been had the opportunity to fully express those ideas. So that's what. The winnipeg boldness project really gave us an opportunity to do that. I was the executive director of a very large digits organization. Prior to boldness again. i. I was very connected to other indigenous. Mostly women leaders. Who who were heading up all these other indigenous organizations in non-indigenous organizations as well and And you know when bullets came along we just looked at ourselves and talk to herself and said is this something we want to work on. Is this an opportunity to to do more. And really what i think why. We agree to be a part of it is because of this lab process in this lab process. Kind of held out an opportunity to to sort of start with community. We're end for community to really be the the center of it and so for me. I've always worked that way. I've always known that that's that that's the way to go. That's where there's so much wisdom you know. Those are the things. Those ways are the ways that families tend to want to be worked with early gravitate towards and so it became about. We got to write this this this way of working down. And so that's how we started the journey towards our theory of change and so just going into community talking to lots of people about what does it take to make it better for babies. You know pretty soon. Patterns started to emerge people. Were telling us things and we could see the patterns. So folks were basically saying you know it. Just do this or if you just do it this way or if you just do these things things will get better for babies so we took a year a wrote a lot of that down we went back and forth and all around and just kept iterating. Made just kept you know going back into the community. Thinks this what you mean is this. Is this what we heard this. We got this right and so writing it down we. We used our own language around it and so we we called it ways of knowing being doing and feeling originally and it's i mean we still call it that but that was our original title for it eventually. We realized you know we do. Need to a hopeful. Have the be understood in insert a larger community in outside the indigenous community. And so we then tagged on. You know it's a holistic early childhood development framework folks could understand that but it's still ways of doing and feeling and so so it became so then that became part of the title. And then you know fast forward to maybe. It was two or three years in. We realized oh this is what social innovation world calls theory of change right and quite simply theory of changes if you do things this way. You're gonna lead to transformational change right. And so we've been talking about doing things this way in this neighborhood for generations into you know passed on through generations. And so that's what our theory of change is drawn is is all that wisdom that's been passed down and so again there. Is this theory of change of this way of operating does exist has existed in this neighborhood for a long time and it does exist. It exists in a lot of different forms and in a lot of different ways but bonus really presented an opportunity to do it in the most fulsome way possible Because a lot of ways aren't necessarily funded a lotta. These ways aren't necessarily understood. A lot of these ways aren't allowed to just flourish in the light as i say so. Sometimes we're doing it off the side of our desks. sometimes we're doing it undercover of darkness. And so the lab allowed us because the lab is about sort of allowed us to have sort of a blank slate. allowed us to take on experimentation. Take on looks risky. Lots of space for that. And so that we could think about ways he wanted to operate and so it's been a great opportunity to really develop and write doubt our theory of change And how refreshing to that all came from the community rightly giver in a place of serving the community. It should come from what the community needs. Not not not guesswork afo. I think that they might need this kind of thing. And so it's just so refreshing to hear that that's that's really the foundation of of when paperless fair cool well and that's i only know that way of operating so like i've just not been taught to be through the generation. That's how you go about the word and you send your community center families They are the experts. They know best what they need. And then the rest of us are helpers. Ray we call. Initially we call that scott like we're helpers and so it's our job to help you know bring those supports and resources and services to our families when they're saying this is what we need you know it's sort of up to us to to help supply that to them right. So yeah. that's that's all i've ever been taught. Is you send your community. You start there and you just can't go wrong eight and so i know a lot of i am asked to speak on the winnipeg bullets project quite a bit and usually the two things people wanna new is. How does the center indigenous wisdom. And how is this community driven. Like how is the community driving or actually the question becomes. How did you get community to buy it. Which i think is a sort of odd for me because community has been driving it from the start and and through and through and through their body. I don't have to convince them by in their in right. Yeah if it's a service. That's benefiting them. I can guarantee you that they will be interested in in being part of that are being at that table and invoicing voicing their opinion Cool that's part of why this this podcast is so exciting because yes we do. Need people to know that this is how we should do. Work is community driven. And it's awesome to hear your examples in stories of of how you're doing that. In how wonderfully succeeding well and again. It's own it becomes when you say it's a success in a lot of what we're discovering or have discovered throw my time in the north end and certainly through boldness who gets to define that success and who is it who is at six four and so a lot of our so against social lab just you know is is about looking at those complex challenges is about help you know it's allowing community to define the problem is because a lot of the times argued does not get to define the problem. Somebody outside of the neighborhood defines the problem and then they they wanna bring a solution to us right so full. This community gets to define the problem and then community begins to start to identify what the what the solutions going to be and again that sounds so basic to me but there are so many processes that don't do that don't allow for that like they just never actually ask. The parents are the families. You know what they think Rather it's always. Here's this great idea. Here's great solution. Here's this great service. Here take it and use it because it's for you whether it works for them or not exactly. I completely agree. And i remember In university learning about human centered design as well. Isn't this just the way that it should always be done. Like centered around the human the individuals that were creating for and yeah. I remember having that thought lake shouldn't be the way it's always done in very quickly realized that unfortunately it isn't the way that work is always done but with you should be the other thing i wanted to say lab process is you know at its most basic. It's designing prototypes. And it's figuring out how to scale those prototypes. And it's suggesting that a lot of these complex challenges that society facing are really Embedded in systems rates so requires a systems thinking approach and it also recognizes in that complexity that it will take a lot of us working together. Cross-sector collaborations so a lot of us from many parts of any to come together in different ways to be able to solve for these complexities and so that's also a really exciting part. I find about lobbying in about the boldness project is that we have been able to bring together a lot of these different sectors. That haven't necessarily talk to each other before or sectors. That didn't really see themselves in the solution or didn't necessarily see themselves in the problem definition and so You know lot of these social processes. I think are very conducive to indigenous knowledge into indigenous ways. And so when. I think about cross sector collaboration. I absolutely think about Clan system teachings and clan system teachings say all voices are circle. All voices are needed. Everyone carries a piece. And so it's all these voices coming together and you need them all and they all serve different roles and they all have carried different responsibilities. So that's clancy teachings to me. And so when i hear a lot about cross sector collaboration absolutely i think about That makes sense to me the other teaching that we have and we were just talking about you. Know person centered design. I do think you know talking to our families is the as a starting place for us suppleness when we really dive into you know again indigenous teachings or for me. It's an issue ave teachings me no. There is this knowledge system about all my relations and so that to me speaks very much boat ecosystem work and all my relations isn't human centric and so it recognizes that relationships are key relationships are paramount and so our our task or job is to figure out how to be in balanced good relationship with everybody and everything and so how am i in good relationship with the water. How am i in good relationship with my neighbor. How am i in good relationship with you. Know animals right because those are all my relations. We talk about mother earth. You know we talk about kind witherspoon So those are all my relatives and all my relations. And so i think about how am i good relationship with them and so again. Another teaching is in addition of as a good life. That good life to me is about how we imbalance with one. Another with everything. And how are we living there for a good life for all of us not just me personally. And so when we think about ecosystems and when we look at how we're all interconnected and interrelated power in relationship with each other. We don't start thinking about. How can i control the error. Control the control. The landlady i think we we feel like in human relationships to try to control each other is not a good thing instead. We want to be a good relationship with each other while it's the same with all my relations right. We're not trying to control all my relations. Were trying to figure out. How can i be invest relationship with my relations so again. Another knowledge indigenous knowledge a system that that we build into the work of the miss project. And there's lots and lots of indigenous teachings which i think are knowledge transfer approaches or Knowledge systems that. I have heard and you been raised up around and still you know pursue to this day and so when i listen to the language of social innovation world. That's where i go. Oh yeah see that. Make sense to me because over here in addition ave world we talk about this this or this and social innovation talking about the same thing. They're using different language. But we're talking about the same thing and the same kind of approach. Yeah you bring up a very key point that there are so many so many sectors and fields that are doing very similar rank but using different language to to talk about it. So you really get into it. It's like oh wow. This is very parallel to what we're doing. We're just calling it different things so and we wouldn't know that if we didn't have cross sector collaboration yeah and cross sector. Collaboration is is again very to do that. We can all say that we all like to say we partner. We all like to say collaborate. And i think to do it really. Well does require this concept of being a good relationship. Like how can we be good partners to each other right. How can we be good collaborators with one another and so lots of values come forward in in that approach in terms of you know equity thinking. I talk a lot of equity thinking. Talk a lot about recognizing the interconnectedness and so you can really go into conversations around power with that rate you know how does power sit within our relationships who has power and what kind of power we talking about and i know in in systems world there certainly a lot of conversations about you know sort of who gets to make decisions you know who has control over resources who gets to make decisions about those resources and i think that's the work of scaling. That's the work of systems approaches. We're going to chat about some of those stories of innovation and experiences that you've had with with the prototypes and the lab of the winnipeg boldness project. So we'll jump into that. Could you share few of those stories. And what stood out for you so were were designing prototypes. Were about twelve right now And so how we picked those twelve again. We went to a community community. Said you know if you could just do these things. We'll make it better for babies and we got a long long list of ideas from our community about what what we should work on. We went through a whole process. Get lots of dialogue. Lots of like ongoing engagement. Lots of conversations about. How do we prioritize some of these things and of course you know when opportunities arise when that window opens you gotta jump through it right so some of it was based on know what was their energy for in the larger winnipeg community to do some these initiatives so long list of a sink. We kind of got it to about forty ideas. We started in the first year working on five. Now we're up to about twelve and in all of them. I think there's patterns to To what's emerging the wisdom that's emerging out of designing of these prototypes and trying to scale these prototypes. So i i just need to say that. All the prototypes are based off our theory of change. So the theory of changes is the approach. Right is how you do these things. So every single prototype you know is odd. That theory of change is built into it in terms of. Here's how we're going to design this prototype and here's what we want this prototype to do. One that i think is a really good. Example is our concept of baby basket and i have done some some talks on this and you know baby basket was looking at the whole issue around infant mortality because that has been identified as an issue here in winnipeg in it is like an awful thing right in something that is very serious and it's something that really does need some solution because we just don't want that we don't want to this problem of infant mortality. So there was a lot of folks who are very concerned about this winnipeg and so the issue of the using this tool called baby box had surfaced in baby box believe comes from notes a finnish idea and and i think it was back in the nineteen thirties. Maybe we're might have started. And all the way up through the nineteen sixties and so really worked for that right and so the concept of baby box at its core. I think is looking at a safe sleep servants. And then you know. I think it's. It's grown to be more than that but i think at at its core. That's what it was so here in winnipeg you know there was this move to to adopt box as a solution because it was an idea that was there were folks who were producing them like it was a fairly easy thing to jump to like. It was easily available as a folks really wanted to jump to that quick solution and use baby baby box so we hit bonus went. Well hold on. Let's go to our community. Let's find out what our community says about this and and see what they say baby box in about. Infant mortality and so what serviced was a lot of preferences in terms of. Here's some aspects of baby box and we prefer a different approach and so number one. I feel like the baby. Box is a standardized model in so the box is fairly standard. You know it's about getting as many out there to as many people as possible and and everybody gets the same thing. And i do believe you know. Some of those baby box do have items contained in them now and again. Those are all the same items for every single person. Art community said we want customization. You know in terms of what is it gonna take to make babies better. We would want customization in terms of this tool. And so i should back up and say that our community started with the baby box is very much about keeping babies alive. And that is important arch community said. We're going to raise the bar just a little bit higher. We want to talk about our babies thriving so the difference between keep baby alive and qui n to have babies thrive. That's a different conversation. And so it puts you at a different starting place and then you're sort of different problem definition and it's so it starts the solution finding a very different place and i do feel like a lot of our different services. Resources programs that get designed for our families from outsiders starts with this just enough to get by because there is some sort of underlying belief there that if we do more than just keep everybody alive. They're going to be super dependent on this and then there and then that's not good. We don't want them depended on this and so we're only giving give them just enough to keep their nose above the water right so let's just keep them treading water like that which i have serious issues with but most of our so again. Let's keep everybody alive. Arkham he goes no no thrive. We want to talk about thriving. So let's start looking at. How might our families thrive so how and which then begins to be very much about a you know. A prevention approach versus intervention approach. Really it starts leading us down that provincial place of you know we can get to families early and get support around families early. You know were then dealing with this informality you know way upstream that we're not having to find ourselves rate at that moment of of infant mortality so again our communities thinking prevention right our community was also feeling that the box which you could go to a website you could and drop down box and punching your credit card in order and the thing would show up on your doorstep and there you go you could use baby box Our community said as way to transactional we want. Relational approaches centered in this this approach and this tool so the baby basket was very much about The if you can think about what i said to drop down box order shows up in your doorstep box and your baby can sleep in the box our communities that we think baskets better we want somebody to possibly show up at your house or for you to come to the center or something. We want a basket to pass between two individuals to people and then that creates an opportunity for two people to be in relationship. Because we think that what's good for babies is when there's a lot of people around babies and there's a lot of support surround families and so you know for every child. We need about five adults right to help raise children and so it takes a village kind of thinking so you can start to see the differences in in these approaches right and quite frankly our community really want to go with the concept of baby bundle but they felt like inner prototyping fe. our inner prototyping work we. That's another iteration. And so they pulled it back to just call it basket because they felt like we were all of what we were putting in. There could be readily readily available to folks as basket. We still need to do some other kind of work. If we want to go full force go into bundle and so again are committed you spent. We're going to pull it back a little bit at we new ultimately we want to get to to This bundle concept so again. You know the box really is about being independent. The basket is about interdependence I talked about that customization. Our community said families are all different. You know could be your first child. Kabeer fifth child like you know you. You could be grandparents all these. So families are very unique. We want the basket to be very customized so they designed this laundry list of things that people could from assigned point values. And they said you have up to this amount of point values will pick and choose things you want in your basket versus box. It's all the same thing whether you need it or not. So boxes very much about equality like everybody gets the same because it's all equal whereas baskets very much about equity. It's very much about choice You know so it centers all these so you can start to see how a lot of these values which are all in our theory of change start to surface in the prototype and those kinds of values surface and almost all of our prototypes. You can see that pattern in all of the different designs of each prototype so where that prototype may have been designed by mainstream society. Before the way we designed it or operationalize it it just becomes very different in terms of the values we sent her. That's incredible i love that. The the concept of taking it just from being a place of work focusing on survival to survive and thrive And not makes a huge difference like you said in in the product that you Prototype and create and the way that it affects. The families is drastically different. The other there so many again amazing elements to the baby box that demonstrate digit approaches digits. And the centering wisdom. The other thing that our community fell super strongly about was that the baby baskets would be produced locally and so it was a community economic development approach and so we have social enterprises here in winnipeg run by women's centers and so we felt very strongly that we wanted baby basket to be constructed and put together and then sent out by a local social enterprise. Run by women in the community and so it will give jobs and employment to those women. Were baby box. I think it was some big corporate. You know corporations out of california. I think it was And so again. The difference would our community. Wisdom says about what's important rate is the localization of of the economic benefits of a basket. And how it would create local economy and and so again the community wisdom is just it blows my mind. Yeah and like you said the by having that community voice in there it. It affects What you create so much and it has much more of an impact on on folks. I love that it's all local to i've always been a big supporter of local. So i think that's An amazing amazing thing to be doing with it. So i was gonna. I was gonna ask just for Context i actually haven't heard of before boxes before. So what would what would be found in a baby box. I guess maybe talking about the baby box. What would what are the options that are available for the baby bump a baby basket. Gotta get the terms right. You know our community Again it was going right to parents because those are the experts asking them. What do you think are what should go into a baby basket and so they quickly came up with alarm longlist and part of what these hottest was. You know the easy things we can find anywhere and the easy things you know are are readily available through. You know different places you know donations or what have you. It's the harder stuff that we never get and so they identified everything from you know like a plastic bottles. Say or something as simple as that all the way through to double seated strollers and as you can imagine the harder things to get where the more popular items. And so you know the double-seated strollers car seats that were certainly Very popular the other thing. Which surfaced to us is that people chose cultural identity things over functionality so that one of the biggest things that almost everybody picked or those you know those little Concrete things handprint in like you can put your babies handprint in it and it keeps people pick that over and over and over again which speaks to. You know that's not necessarily functionality. Eight like that. That is a sentimental. I wanna keep my baby's handprint and so also you know folks. In terms of the other listed there was objects in terms of the list of objects but there was also a list of services and supports like making sure that people knew that. There's all these different services and supports that they could access with that also into the basket and a lot of water community said that they want a need is access to cultural teachings identity access to ceremony because again. That's a big gap in our community. there are sort of parenting programs out there. You know a lot of and our community said some of them are good and some of them are quite awful but indigenous approaches to parenting. We see very much of that. And that's what we want. And so when we look at those indigenous approaches to parenting there is a lot of different Practical information but a lot of ceremonial information. Like how do we get our sacred names. What and what is a sacred bundle. You know what what what what do we do with our placenta. you know. There's walking out ceremonies so on and so forth like our community really really wants access to that kind of knowledge and information To help raise our babies in a in a thrive way yeah and culture is such a big such a big piece of that really. To thrive is Is culture that was so inspiring and wonderful to hear how everything is so integrated and and layer that like everything recreating is coming from this theory of change and it really goes to show that when you do all that work that whole year of planning and and listening to community and writing things out of how much deeper i think your your impact Can be i think a project we've really figured out how to bring together the digits wisdom that's been in our community for a long long time how to bring that together with social lab approach and so the to work so well together again because the lab of just allows for a lot of ways of no knowing being doing to to be centered. And to-to allow that to flourish so it's really beneficial where we're at in the evolution so we're really figuring out how to dive into problem definition and then how to design solutions with our community and so the prototypes we designed our community starts. The design process that we involve others as we go and we just keep iterating and then we actually run families through the prototypes. So the families tell us that worked. That didn't worker we need more of this or tweak it that way so our families are totally telling us how to make this a better prototype. I think what there's a couple of things that at this point. Seven years down the road that were challenged with We're really challenged with evaluation. I think evaluation worlds is highly centered on programmatic offerings. And so we know how to evaluate programs really well i think to evaluate social lap roses challenging for us so and then again who gets to decide what's important you know who gets to decide what we measure. Who gets to decide. You know what's the value. Add there and so while the community where fierce about community gets to decide all that things not everybody agrees with our community that that's what's important or that you know the all that should be the ultimate outcome or That this is good value for money when we we have a lot of those kinds of conversations with some of our supporters to is you know what. What's this value for money framework that we might be using because at the end of the day we do feel like the big unwielding systems are super expensive and they're not always very effective or efficient for our families and they're very worst are harmful to our families like just outright harmful even though they're designed you know with this notion of making a better for families So we know there's a lot of it. Well it more you know. There's there's some immoral things happening and assists however you know i can also make the economic imperative to say the systems are too expensive. You know and so we feel like the community solutions in the community. Wisdom can probably be weighed more economically efficient. You know and the highly moral the same time so we really think we can get really good. Health and wellness outcomes It in a better way and again more efficiently or more Impactful if you will so really being tasked with how do we think about impact. How do we communicate impact. How do we measure impact Those are a lot of conversations that we're having right now and there isn't easy tools to use for us for right now and so really having to design some of that on our own or having to cobble together pieces or and what makes sense to us as two story tell because we think the stories communicate all of that And so and people really do. The stories landed people can hear the story and then they can think about that story and they can imagine all the impacts that would come out of it when they went to hear the story trying to do that. In a more scientific data driven. You know that kind of evidence becomes a bit more challenging to again communicate the impact or the value of of what you're doing so we're very challenged with that right now and again. We're working through it and we're talking to all of our colleagues. You know that are here in winnipeg talking to her colleagues across the country and You know trying to connect with other labs and other social innovation folks to figure out. How might we do this. So obviously there's a lot of emphasis on developmental evaluation which is about. What did we learn. But some of her stakeholders they don't mind that but that's not enough you know They really do wanna take. Sometimes i feel like there's a bit more of a leaning into the quantitative aspect of of evaluation impact in so i mean that's important. We can do that. But when you're talking about prototyping it isn't about quantity necessarily right. It's about quality and so because again we're not. We're not designing massive national programs here. We're prototyping possible solutions. The scaling becomes where we can maybe help conversations about quantity. I mean. scaling isn't always about quantity but it can be if if we skill in that regard so yes that's one of the challenges we have right. Now i think they're still people still understand programmatic offerings quite easily When you're not offering programmatic thing. I think it's harder for people to get their head around and so prototyping what's that in an. What's the value of that medicating the value of prototype. I can be challenging because we only did x. Amount of families so it's not significant. That's not the point. The point is families designed this thing at actual families tested it and actual event please gave us the feedback and said this is what we really like apple or learning. I'm the wisdom of some of our prototyping is when our families get to design it. Tell us It becomes something that they participate in that they really really love. Because they're saying here's how we need it. Here's when we need it here you know they're they're they're they get to design it so it really fits them really really well but it's prototyping so it's always short term right. The point is to design process. And so we always have to end the prototype at some point and and then we and then we looked to all of our collaborators and stakeholders to figure out how we might skill those prototypes while our community gets very upset when something they really love and and they don't care if it's a prototype you they don't care about language who they just know that they experienced something awesome and they need more of it and they needed in their lives and they have every right to want a need that and they have every right to demand it and i'm happy that they're demanding it and then they get mad at us for ending. Sometimes we'll miss does get criticized for why did they end that amazing thing and because we did end right we ended the prototyping and so i'll take that heat because they should be families should be indignant that they don't have this all the time. Right families should demand better and they should demand the best of of a service or an offering. And so. I i sit back and you know. I have a smile on my face when they're sitting there potentially criticizing you but i see exactly. They're saying they have every right to. So so. but and so it just really reinforces and redoubles our commitment to do more and to do better and to push harder and to you know really push on the scaling and to really work hard at creating partnerships and collaborations with others so that we can scale this stuff and so we we have our fears like everybody so we always fear sometimes that We want our prototypes to scale. Other people to take them at run with them and just go like we love. That will let somebody else take it. Run with it in your service or system. We love that. Roy was fearful that that it starts to get away from what families were asking for like. There's always sort of that. Danger feel but we always suggest if you keep families completely plugged in if you keep listening to families it will iteration and change and evolve and develop a really good way as long as you keep. Families super plugged into it and listening to them and using their guidance and direction it will never you know Lead you in the wrong direction in so we worry. That's why we always are very adamant about centering. Relationships and so no matter what. The product is a the products. Only part of the equation. If you have strong respectful relationships that product can evolve and an eel emergence interruption. Right as long as that relationship is strong it can go in any direction and it will be a good direction And so once when people in this project has completed a prototype. What happens i guess. Once that prototype is closed off is it sometimes a somebody else will take it on and really start implementing it do. The prototypes resurface at all. Or is it is it when people in this project just focused on prototyping and other prototype that kind of thing. Yeah are you know. And this is the beauty of when a pick boldness says well that i'm starting to see you know the pattern. If at the very beginning of this we didn't know much anything in terms of social innovation or lagging really prototyping. We we knew how to make things better for babies and how to operate with our families. We knew that for sure this lobster we had was a steep learning curve so we felt like we were sitting at chaos a lot of the time but when i love chaos theory is that pattern emerges and so when our community you know what was guide us and direct. And i've always been told my whole life if you don't know that's okay because community knows community will always guide you indirect you so just have confidence in that. Have faith in that and you will be at peace with that. You don't have to get all worked up with not knowing because communities always going to guide you. You're not in this alone so i've always felt that a bowl this even were sitting around in the not knowing in the chaos and not knowing what we're gonna do. I always had faith. That community will always lead us in the right way. So that's number one. And so when it comes to the the prototyping they are all super interconnected. So these prototypes. Don't they're not all independent prototypes in. So i said a time or two. When i step back and look at the bigger picture and the bigger pattern it can only be like one massive prototype with all these moving parts at times you know. So it's circles within circles with circles. Which is what i love about. Circular thinking thinking inside the circle. So they're all super interconnected And yeah some of our prototypes. Incorporate the other prototypes within them so one of our prototypes that we were super privileged to work on was the indigenous dulan's initiative with with a group of fabulous indigenous women who really designed that and ran with it And so one of the iterations of the indigenous dulas project took on the baby basket and the baby basket within their scaling So they took an end they they iterative on that baby box. In a way that. I couldn't have imagined and i sit back and look because they took it to a community scale and instead of sort of individuals each receiving a basket they took that into one of our northern offers nation communities and the community turned into a community sort of basket and so they really it was about. Not you know i mean. We have to look after individual families for sure. But how do these families connect to each other. And how do we as a community celebrate. You know the ceremonies and provide the identity stuff. And how do we as a community come together and get around all these young families and young children and so they just scaled that in a way that i sit back in my heart swells and in my brain is just stretched you know with with the sophistication and the wisdom of where they took it so and we didn't have anything to do with that like they just took it around with it. Did it the way that they wanted to do that. Community and i just went. Oh my god. It's beautiful and perfect so we got a lot. Where you know. The prototype surrey cooperating. 'cause they're so interconnected. Yeah that is so cool. I feel funny saying that is so cool but it is. I'm just like that's so cool. Awesome can be it holding the duality of how simple that is and yet how sophisticated that is at the same time that happens over and over and over again when i look at the community wisdom in in oak love it. We'll tie it up here with my last question that i'm going to be Asking everyone to it's kind of a consistent question. Although i'm going to change it since the last time i recorded somebody so it's kind of consistent but anyways it's rounded vice and if you could i guess there's there's you could take one or two one of two ways So if you could go back in time and talk to yourself seven years ago right when you're starting winning Boldness project what it advice or words of wisdom or encouragement. Would you tell yourself. Or if there is or i guess yeah go back in time and talk to yourself or if somebody else who is starting something similar to this or just it starting with a new challenge in front of them brand new. What what would you tell them. I that that is a. Yeah if i could tell myself back then. That was a tough one for me. I don't often think like i train. But in terms of invites i guess what i want to say. Is you know. We are in this era of truth and reconciliation in canada for sure and i feel like folks are really trying to understand how to be a part of the solution. I don't think too many people want to be a part of the problem. I think But i think we have to understand the role that each of us has played in the problem. So i think that and that's tough work right. It's very tough work to to look at yourself critically and go. What role did i play in the problem and currently playing in the problem. Think that's tough. So that and then second reconciliation. You know folks love to be in the mode because it's usually solution finding and it's usually a bit more positive in terms of how might we. We worked together here And so i think that what's key to the to both truth and reconciliation is solid relationships. And so if you were hard at being in in an authentic genuine relationship with others i think that whatever path you take whatever solutions you find or identify. You can't go wrong. I think the solutions and the path can change from year to year. It can change from issue to you. But if you're in a solid relationship. So i go back to immuno bonzo. And if you're in a solid relationship with others you will go forward together and when you're in that solid relationship with others you can work through complexity you can work through super challenging things and when those relationships are not good you can't deal with complexity and you can't deal with hard challenges and conversations So that's sort of the advice. I would give to anybody out. There is work really hard at your relationships. The rest will follow everything else will follow and flow from that beautiful. That was fabulous advice. Well that is that. Is it from me for questions. So thank you huge. Thank you again for that. That was such a fabulous conversation. Gara- really appreciate being asked because it does it. It helps me to further eatery what we're doing so when i'm invited to speak like this it just pushes me to to to be better at describing and telling the story so so thanks for asking us to to be here it was. My pleasure is fabulous. Thanks everyone for tuning into this episode of pause. A hope you enjoyed it. You learned something in the spirit of reconciliation. I'd like to acknowledge that the homes we live in the ground that we walk upon are situated on lands that were until relatively recently used cared for exclusively by indigenous peoples. we acknowledged the past present and future generations of first nations may t- an inuit who have traditionally gathered in and cared for our land is only i would love to hear what you thought of the episode so please let me know in the comments on your favorite listening platform.

"Grow Up! Get Your Thinking Past You!"

"Welcome to the first episode of creative resolutions in action. I'm calling sklar. The Executive Director of the Winnipeg Metropolitan Gotcha Poyton region for the past number of years. I've been passionate about my work. That is focused on working with governments business NGOs and service organizations across Manitoba. I've tried to move them to be more committed more collaborative more innovative and ultimately more actionable. One thing I insist on is not only having ideas envision being able to find a tangible pathway forward to execute and to get things done vision is fine but it's meaningless Elissa a dozen translate to action. I started my blog creative resolutions dot ca to support this work. I found out that there wasn't an accessible place to talk about. All the things going on in Manitoba was smart accomplished driven people that have come in contact with over the past ten years. And why should I have all the fun. So this podcast will introduce you to a cross section of these people as we dive into the real world of Manitoba and with a mixture of smart conversations expert advice behind the scene stories and straight talk from leaders in government business industry academia and civil society. What you will hear is their diverse voices and strong ideas coming together to help find common ground that we can stand on? The last ten years has been incredibly rewarding. And I hope that you will join me as we leap into this next chapter new episodes are released every other Monday for now and don't forget to subscribe to creative resolutions in action on I tunes or wherever you get your podcast from. It's what will allow us to keep making this content. Don't worry I'll remind you at the end of this show now. Let's roll our sleeves and guest. Today I have the pleasure of sitting down with Susan Thompson. Susan was the fortieth mayor of the city of Winnipeg and the first first woman to serve as mayor in this city Susan also created the mayors and reeves of the Capital Region in nineteen ninety eight which is now known as the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region. Susan thank you for speaking with me today. Now in nineteen ninety eight you were able to get all the mayors reeves together in one room for the first time. Now that sure was a monumental task. Indeed it was And thank you very much for for asking me to be part tired of this. I is very appreciated when I became mayor in in one thousand nine hundred ninety two. It became very obvious is to me that all of Manitoba when a pay the capital region as it was called then the entire province all had to work together together to the best capacity that we could because a nineteen ninety two. We had a net loss of people out of our province in our cities. We we did not have businesses coming to Manitoba. We were not a have not province when people had to choose news. Did they want to go to on -Tario or Alberto or British Columbia. They were not including Manitoba in that mix. So what did did they care if there was this stupid bickering going on between Winnipeg and the capital region and other municipalities. Pahlavi's total dysfunction so I became mayor in nineteen ninety two and was invited to the association. One of Manitoba Municipalities and. It was one of the most unpleasant experience as I was the new mayor. I didn't know history in terms of that relationship and it was rude unpleasant confrontational dysfunctional. I don't think I have to use any more words and it was all about my backyard in your backyard and everybody was the bad guy and I was absolutely horrified. I was a guest just to speak and when I was driving back into Winnipeg I thought oh I don't ever want to go back to them again. It's it's just awful and but of course as in all things more you you think about it to go. What has happened here and I will go back to my original point? We he could not afford to behave in such a manner and so I spent the next few years going out to the municipalities. He's talking to our administration. What over a thirty forty year period had caused this dysfunction? Because I was all about the future I was all about providing for our children and our families to have a future in this wonderful province and in order to do do that we sure as heck at all better pull together. We all better figure out our priorities. How are we going to do it? and Are we gonNA show the rest of Canada that we're the best place to be you and I that that's just an amazing story and I can imagine the challenges at the time to bring all those players together and you know I look back back and I. I read the documents and I look at all the hard work that went on it and it was incredibly visionary work. Do you think that the problems that you you identified back then about not being able to afford it about you know people leaving about not being jobs for our children in the future. Have those challenged much in your opinion. LEMMING If I may give you A couple of perspectives here. The backyard fights fights have not changed. Grow up get your thinking past you ye. It's not about you it's about about the future so instead of this parochial Thinking in competition blaming get past it and and get to what are the processes the plan and the visions that we can all work to get I. I mean honest to God if you only come up with three. You're going to come up with something to move forward with but now we have a bigger problem because we have a world in extreme weather conditions and and you know in Manitoba. I think we're all very proud of how we can manage blizzards and floods thing. Thank God it's not hurricanes and all of this however we are arcing extremes and one of the most important things we have to realize as a city a region and a provinces. What do we own? Well you talked about us being the bread basket. Well I would say to you know. We're the food basket. And what I mean by that is not only are we I cultural but ranching and all the other food products folks that we provide to the world. I'm I am absolutely adamant about this to the world and as all these extremes in temperature temperature and climate are occurring to us. Our most urgent is for us to come together as communities. And how are we going to deal with a drought in on the inter- lake or the flooding in the inter- like that's an important area to us so who in the capital region can be the the agricultural research up you know is that was Saint Paul Saint Paul. I don't know but figuring out for crying out loud because we can't wait to to figure out our priorities anymore. We we we own certain things and we own being the food basket and then everybody in this metropolitan region has to figure out at a minimum. What are our top three areas of expertise? Where can we locate them? How do we service them? And then how do we build on this so we have a future. These are really powerful World Susan because we all know that the extreme weather events are gonNA cost our communities a lot of money and cost the world a lot of money and we have to get ready and we also know that building resilience isn't done one community at a time it's done through a coalition and a collaborative approach. I guess a Susan one thing. I really likes talk with you about as recently. There's been a lot of attention. At the provincial government and at the municipal government around developing a regional land-use servicing infrastructure plan to lead us for like a future of visionary plan. What do you think about that? Well first of all it is essential. I mean again where where a small little pee in a great big pot so just visualize that you know. The Pot isn't very important unless call the peace or terrific right so you have to get your your plan your processes at you know land. Use all of that. I mean come on. That's very straightforward. The issue is not straightforward is for what and that the has to be a very collaborative initiative amongst the province and the region. And and I keep keep the city of Winnipeg is an entity. Because I feel that's the the appropriate way but coming together I I remember when When I tried to to push vision I said you know? Eighty percent of Canadians live in cities. While I don't care what kind kind of a city you are if you do not have water that people can drink and some way to have electricity and heat and so you have to breathe the air. You have to drink the water and you have to be able to survive the winters and we haven't a Have all of that. We're blessed with clean air. We are blessed with our precious water supply about we're really not giving it its due rewards and we have hydro he had it is our greatest asset and we just have to protect us so so when you talk about what are the three things we absolutely have to protect those those are the areas and then you have to come up with what are our natural given economic driving areas and build upon on them and have that discussion beyond when I first became mayor. The our sister city of Setagaya Japan came to visit US and He came into my office and it. It was a wonderful discussion but in that discussion he said to me. What is your twenty ninety five year plan just about drop dead? I couldn't even get through each day. I mean you know I had the media attacking me. I had my council after after me. I hit that you know I. I mean I didn't even know if I was ever going to walk out of the office alive and And so when he said to me what is your twenty. Five Year Plan. I was stunned. I had produced a six year plan for being mayor but a twenty five year plan. And I said I I don't know and I said twenty five years and he said well yes. What you're doing today has already been undetermined for you? I just looked at them. And then what are you talking about. He said well all the policies and procedures were determined. Airman by your previous council and then your current council so what you're doing today has already been determined. He said what you have to do you use what's tomorrow and tomorrow is twenty five years from now because you have to look out to see whatever you're planning what is it GonNa look like Mike in Twenty five years. 'cause a good plan and I will repeat this. A good plan takes twenty five years to come to fruition Wish so that's what people need to go to the end picture. What is it gonNA look like? I twenty five years from now and then start putting in place which you have to put in place to make sure you have that future so this really is a call to leadership. Oh absolutely if you if you know whether it be the premier or the mayors of the reeves if you are not prepared here to stand up and be counted on then you're in the wrong place at the wrong time because now all time has run out now you must stand up and you must be counted on. So are we on the right track DOC. Pushing for a regional vision regional plan. Do you think we're on the right track O- long-overdue well just one kind of end question on on this little podcast because made Manitoba. We've been asking all of our guests. Those that are gracious enough to to come in and speak with us one question and it is if you could speak to anybody about anything who would that person be. And what would you say. Well you know it. It was a huge question because of course you you have to process. Oh my goodness be. Don't kid yourself right about now. I'd love to talk to Queen Elizabeth about what she thinks about. Oh Boris Johnson and she has gone through fifteen prime ministers starting with Churchill. Why WanNa know what you thought about Churchill and so you know I'm used? It was a great question but then I had to go through. What would mean something to the people who might listen to this sir? audio and I have been to the Nelson Deli exhibit at the Human Rights. Museum are Incredible Human Rights Museum and and I listened to his various videos in that exhibition. So I I'm going to read to you what I'd like to leave you with today. Because an actual fact I would've loved to have met Nelson Mandela so to say hey the least when I was listening to this one particular video of his. It was profound and it was a profound experience. One of his quotes oats. And this is coming from a man who was imprisoned for Twenty Seven Years Twenty seven years in a six by six sell twenty seven years of Torture Twenty seven years of isolation twenty seven years of being dehumanized simply unvbelievable to think of what this man went through yet. Here is one of the things he said he said to all of us to all of us. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and Free Society in which all persons live together in harmony with equal opportunities. It is nine nine deal which I hope to live for and achieve surely with all of our blessings and advantages just as Canadians. We can all come together to fight for our wonderful country of Canada are wonderful province of Manitoba and our great cities an municipalities. We absolutely must cherish and protect attacked. US Susan thanks so much for taking the time to talk with us today. We really enjoyed getting to know you in really hearing your point of view you my pleasure.

I'm Ben Goats and on the other line is my dear colleague. David chain who is a Internationally abroad right now Dave. How is lovely Canada in November? Oh it's awesome. It's great it's Wendy. You Know Beautiful Soleil that is of course. Dave is in Toronto because the Golden Knights play the Toronto Maple Leaves Tomorrow on Thursday. which would be a really interesting matchup? It's a really really interesting road trip right now for the nights that I'm very excited to talk about a before you get into all that I want to remind everyone that the Golden Age podcast is brought to you by. Sdn Sports it's Mojo from station casinos and also presented by axios Dot Com and UNTUCKIT While David was another weird week for the Knights who have actually had a a lot of a Canadian influence in their games recently. They hosted the Montreal Canadians. And the Winnipeg jets on Thursday and Saturday they built to period two-goal leads in the third period of both of those games. And you would think they'd be able to step on the throat with both of those teams playing the second game of back to back but they lost both those leads plus both those games in overtime but then nights bounce back with a win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on the road last night. I mean just what's going on with this team right now. Mansell stuff. We've been talking about. Yeah yeah at least in in the In the Canadians game and the jets game you know just I mean the breakouts Alves sloppy task. You know just just it's going using the term loose. I I use that term a lot to just to loose I don't know if it's complacency and all that sort of stuff actually sent an email to NHL Stats information to find out. If the Golden Knights and their brief history had ever blown a two-goal lead in the third period of consecutive games. They said it's never happened until Until that Montreal. Winnipeg I guess fiasco. I don't I don't think that's too strong a word But it's you know obviously it's rare it doesn't we haven't really seen that they've been good with elite in and more than anything we've seen them play confidently with elite. I thought we finally saw that in the third period a little bit against Columbus last night but I those those two games the last week just I mean someone inexcusable really. Yeah they made history apparently as as a you just said it was a lot of what we've as you brought up. We've said about this team. And we thought the avalanche game where they got punked might cause them to really Lee self. Reflect in fix some of these things which we've talked about like poor breakouts forwards leaking out of the defensive zone too early. I mean sloppy passes just baffling turnovers. That can't happen and And we also thought that Nate Schmidt coming back would help alleviate some of those things any has to an extent but ultimately. That wasn't the wakeup call. I think that that they needed. They didn't take the lessons from that Colorado game that they needed to and even after the Montreal game I thought it was interesting talking to players in the locker room that they're like. Hey we thought we still oh played well in this game which didn't get the breaks. We wanted you know the game tying goal or knows a the golden cut it to a one goal deficit came off Tomasz Tatars Body then the actual game time golden regulation came up escape so I mean the Golden Knights were fair to point out that those were bad bounces and they thought they still played well in that game but also what Glenn brought up in both those games that they sat back a lot and let the other team have the puck lot and if the other team has a puck lot the other team is more likely to get those bounces. So I think they're kind of letting those bounces excuse. Some of their sloppy play in the Canadians game and then ultimately bled over into the Winnipeg game where they kind of repeated that formula to not very good affects. Yeah I'd agree with that. Largely I mean all of them a little bit in terms of the bounces and then even to the Winnipeg game I mean you know we have that I guess offside or non offside that ends up leading to tangle for Winnipeg so I you know those are all things that you'd like to think and kind of even out over a year I mean we can talk about this a little bit but you know maybe maybe they caught a breaking Columbus on the On the first goal maybe marked so was off-side Obviously you know John Tortorella. The Columbus coach even today was still at his press conference talking about how he didn't understand a and what is possession and I need to know a better definition of it and things like that so you know maybe the nights calibrate their maybe it evens out. You know a little bit I I think what was I guess What's the right word? I'm looking worrisome. So to speak is it's kind of what you referred to in just sitting back and it felt like at least in those two games. There was like this mental kind of shut. Shut off like okay we. We've done our work. Now we can just coast the rest of the way in. We'll take our two points and they on their way we go on our way and you know and everything it'd be grand and obviously that's not what happened. They ended up with two point two games instead of the four and I think a lot of that it's bounces but like you said it's it's putting winging yourself into a position to allow the other teams take advantage of those counts and I think that's where you can the night. I think maybe that was the improvement that we saw against Columbus. Last night I felt like they were more comfortable with lead. There was about a seven minute stretch where Columbus made a really strong push them in the third period. You're able to withstand that. And then they did a good job in the last three minutes really kind of a you know keeping them quiet squelching anything. I don't even know if they give a shot the last couple of minutes to be quite honest last night. So that's encouraging you know maybe you didn't learn from Colorado. Maybe they learned from the last two games and they were able able to apply it Censored last night. Yeah I definitely think there was a different tone in the locker room. After the Winnipeg Winnipeg game compared to the Montreal game though as you mentioned the Winnipeg game did still have an interesting bit of officiating where a icing was not called with when h mint was racing after the puck. Along with Winnipeg jets forward Kyle Connor Schmidt appeared to beat conor to the faceoff dot by about a half length. And at that point. That's when the referee is supposed to determine whether icing should be called or not by the letter of the law. It appeared that it should be called there. It was not instead Schmidt blows a tire hits the ice connor gets the PUCK. DOC dishes it to a wide open. Marc Schaffel in front of the net tie game and I think that goes back to the Golden Knights. There's no reason that the Golden Knights should be in a one goal goal game at that point. They were up. Three one of the first period. Winnipeg was tired. They got shot fifty three to nineteen by the sharks the night before and so the fact that they were in that position. I mean coach. Jr Glance at it after the game like that call wasn't the reason we lost was because we sat back and we are too loose and last night. I think you have to credit the nights where there's times where I thought up ahead. Some really good offense zone pressure and the hand maybe deserved the bounce to go. Their way in terms of Jonathan Marshall was ruled to have possession of the pop even though his skates crossed the Blue Line. Before the Puck that leads the Golden Knights Getting Riley. Smith's first goal and that ends up being obviously a key goal in a two one game. Yeah and I think I even go back a little bit to Winnipeg game and kind of think back to the To the rees fight With lowery when when Tuck got her. 'cause I know certainly Winnipeg's coach Paul. Maurice and some of their players felt like that was a turning point for Winnipeg that was a moment where they got a little energy a little Jews and and they were able to get back in the game. I guess maybe criticized jargon for you know sending Ryan Riess over the boards to make Larry Answer the bell for that call I'm kind of old school in little regard and I don't really have a problem with with it in the sense that they had a problem with the hit okay reuse goes and they take care of it and then the rest of the game went on you know what I mean like like that was it that ended it. They took care of the problem. And everybody can go play hockey so from that standpoint. I don't have a problem with it but I guess in terms of the momentum and things like that media backfired you know on the nights a little bit but again you know to last night I just thought they played. They played the way they have to play on the road. It was similar to kind of the Pittsburgh game. I thought you know like they got out. Shot a little bit and all that but you know it was basically anything game they basically Kinda grind it out. which is what you have to do on the road and I think it's a step in the right direction for the nights to be able to understand how to play with lead and be comfortable with it? I kind of I. I kinda always think about a soccer analogy and you see somebody one nothing gains in soccer and there are certain teams that are up one. Nothing and you just feel like the game is done on other teams. Just it's never going to get a sniff and obviously it's different hockey with with the back and forth but it just felt like last night a one goal lead felt more comfortable than it had in the previous two games. The previous two games kind of felt like you were waiting for that. It just felt like everything. Kinda swung last China. Felt like the ninth. Were you know they're hanging on a little bit. They certainly were absorbing pressure but it didn't feel like they were like completely just running around like with their hair on fire or anything anything like that. It didn't seem like they were uncomfortable with the lead. The did the things that they have to do. You know Kinda the little things and and all that sort of stuff so again. That's asking cursing thing we'll see if they're able to to build on that going forward Davis course referring to the Adam lowry hit on Alex. TUCK that knocked Alex. Tuck out of only his second game of the season attack has now because that day today with an upper body injury that caused the Golden Knights to make some roster adjustments for Tuesday's game against Columbus Blue Jackets. We'll talk about one other roster adjustment. They made for that game.

That's U. N. T. U. C. K. I. T. Dot Com Promo Code blue for twenty percent off so the other key storyline. Royal Line for me anyway in that blue jackets game. Besides the fact that they kind of reversed some of the trends that had been creeping their game was the fact that Derek England was a a healthy scratch of the thirty seven year old assistant captain for the Knights. Woods benched in favor of rookie Nick Hague and it really didn't adversely affect the nights. That much I mean I thought he played outstanding game with a Shea Theodore's his partner certainly his best game so far the next one four for four on the penalty kill so even though Coached Oregon has called England. One of the best penalty killers in the league. Dave this has been affected a little bit recently. Because Nick has now been sent back down to the American Hockey League's Chicago. Wolves will see if this is a one day taxi situation whether he's actually gonNA stick there for a while. But what do you think the nights are going to end up doing with England moving forward. It's so hard to tell. I really don't know because it seemed like last night. And Kinda vibe that I got was that this was sort of maybe the beginning of phasing directing. We're now if if they're able to if you know everybody that that they have online continues to play. Well it just Kinda felt like they've been dancing around this move and they finally using the phrase pull the trigger but you know they finally made made it and and it worked for the most part. The one thing with that I will say is the drawback would so so. I'll all all say this. I Nick Hague played twelve minutes and two seconds all at five on five so he wasn't ally and that's of his nine games. That's his low. Hello he's that that's the fewest amount of time that he's logged so not since last night and there were some penalties obviously is not on the PK or anything like that so it cut down a little bit but did they really kind of protect you. And they didn't put him. You know out there against top lines and things like that I guess they were ostensibly like the third. Where if you look at the ice time at five on five and things like that? The Merrill Holden tearing you know was was way ahead of them in terms of you know their distribution Russian. The drawback obviously is that it's haggis getting with with shape. Theodore and I continue going forward if they keep the ice time distributed that way then it you know obviously shaved some time. I'll shake theodore and he's one of your best defense. You want him out there. Obviously he's GonNa get power or play time and things like that but that might be the drawback of it a little bit my personal opinion this wine that I would have gone with like from day. One We saw mccague with Nate Schmidt a lot in the pre season and we saw him a little bit toward the end of the shape. Theodore one one of the things that we've kind of feels like it seems and and we've seen this with the nights a lot it's kind of pairing dot mobile defense than with more of the State Home Guy and indicate would kinda qualify more. Stay at home guy and skating shape theodore in kind of letting him sort of be free flowing and do his thing. It seems like they would have chemistry we last night. It seemed to work pretty well. I mean they gave him one goal they gave up. I was thirty shots. Nothing excessive you know. I mean they look they look pretty good and as far as I'm concerned so going forward if it's me I can use that. I ride those sick. I use the Schmidt mcnabb I feed your. Hey and I keep holding together and and see what happens. I see the you know the chemistry. I've seen naked continue to develop. Because if he's able to you know then in elevates everything they'll be all six of them so it's a tough decision for drug land because their king like you said obviously a great penalty killer Lillard but also just the leadership you know. This is one of your threes happens but you just need a healthy scratch sends a strong message. So we'll kind of see what happens going forward I I the reassignment to the age old throws my mind off because I'm not sure what that means. I'm not sure if like you said if it's a salary cap tap news and he comes back and plays mccague's actually from the Toronto area so I'm sure he wants to play here Against the Maple leafs smart. Whoa I guess I mean? We'll see we'll see. It's a little puzzling. If you play him the way that you played in last night and everything kind of looks good and then you just all of a sudden go Now back in the lineup I to me that would be a little baffling to me. This is if you're going to start phasing out. This is the time to do it right. We'll end up seeing what happens but certainly I mean hag looked like I said good last night because I think he was more aggressive knowing that he was playing with a more mobile partner he was more aggressive on pinches. A little bit more physical. I think that's because he knew if he stepped up a little bit further into the offensive zone the partner who could back come up by hauling the other way whereas when he's playing with Derek England. I mean neither of them can really afford to make a mistake on a pinch or going up for a hit because you don't Wanna put either of those two guys you know in a position to have to defend an odd man rush now. Hague still had defend one odd man rush last night at two on one and he didn't even allow a shot attempt on it which I thought was a really good play by the rookie. We'll have to see how his usage kind of looks moving forward and how soon he's he's back with the team and obviously I think it's fair to point out Derek. England has struggled this series the worst shot attempts percentage on the team. He had really bad turnover. That led to the Winnipeg jets for our school Saturday night. So if you're struggling and he wants to send some level of message to your team and specifically to your Blue Line I think that was you know maybe a good time to do it like hey we can't have these types of plays and we can't let these types of plays go unpunished. I think that's part of what makes Glenn you know. Such a good coach and and respected by players is kind of that accountability. And you know on the honesty of you. Know he's GonNa he's GonNa tell you like it. Is You know behind on closed doors. I know those guys are coached hard. You know that we don't see it when they're on the ice. We see a lot of laughing and things like that. But I know when they're back they're doing film and and all that sort of stuff you know he. He doesn't hold back. He's he can be blunt in really honest with those guys and they actually the. That's what they appreciate sheet. They want to know where they stand. So from that standpoint I'm sure Derrick dockery stand you know with the language and Ford you know. It's just a question I think at at this point of of you know. Can you like what what always what in that regard I mean Derek Penalty Killing Rolling in leadership outweigh the fact that it's unbalances. You know the the other two pairs excluding the the Schmidt mcnabb one. I mean one of my biggest thing with with their England right now is I just. I don't know who he played him with. I don't see anybody on that rocker meeting now. I don't you you know I mean because you can get a little bit but I just. That's the biggest problem for me is who do you put on the left. With their England that can move because the only guy that you could really do that with Shaef Theodore and they seem very committed to have him on the right in Shaef yours and I don't WanNa see vocal. But but he's certainly whenever we've asked about his comfort level and the right he's certainly said that he likes dot side. He likes being able to walk the Blue Line on his forehand. You know when he picks the the puck off the wall and and things like that so if that's the way that they're going to do going forward I just don't see where Derek when fix to be quite honest. Yeah it's definitely interesting to see how they approach kind of all these Blue Line battles that they got going on moving forward. Well speaking of moving forward the previously mentioned Dave in Toronto. You're soon going to be in Washington. DC and a couple of days for to really really interesting match ups for the Knights Obviously Toronto. The Record Eckard probably isn't what they want it to be. But they're still one of the most talented teams in the league. And Captain John Devaras just got healthy and should be playing against the lights and the capitals have of the most points in the League as of this recording. So that's a really tough two-game string for the nights and they finish off this road trip playing Detroit the day after playing the capital's capitals was quick preview. What do you need to see from this team over these next three games? especially if they're going to be without a guy like Alex depending on his availability. I like to see a lot of what I saw last night. You know I think team you have two different on the road you have to be able to grind oh games you have to be able to play a tighter checking you know a little closer to the best type of game especially in team like Toronto especially against a team like Washington. I don't think thank you know getting into like a six four. Kinda you know up and down. Racehorse game with them is anything you want to do so to me. You know especially like Toronto because of all talk about them recently and you know it seems like every team. That's come in the last week or so as an ask you know. Hey what do they have to do to win the Cup and it just seems to be Kinda You know just just building and building and we you know obviously the way that the interest in hockey and the maple leaf is up here. I mean I don't think they can get away with it or get away from it. Excuse me so from that standpoint. I just think the nineteenth just put them out in their mind you know. Get an early lead you know. Make them grind it out. Make them playing uncomfortable trouble game. I you know Toronto wants to get get up and down. Don't let them do it if they're able to get some points out of there. I don't WanNa see the Washington up throw away but I don't think it's as important if they if they're able to get something done up here tomorrow night because the other thing is Detroit stinks like that should be two point. I understand it's a puff turnaround coming from Washington and going up there in the last game on a road trip but that that should be two point so if they're able to get something out of the game tomorrow night in Toronto and you have five days five point six points out of eight on a road trip. I mean that would be extremely successful. Sure they would go home. You know feeling like okay. Maybe we figured some things out here you know. Let's push forward But you know again. It's tough it's it changes everything you know you're going tomorrow night. You struggle a little bit and then you go play Washington and and now all of a sudden you know the doubts could start creeping back in so we'll see how they handle it but like I said I I just I would like to see them be able to play. You know tighter game you know grinded out out like they did against Columbus. Yeah I think that's fair specially against two high powered offenses. You know it'd be interesting to see. How the Golden Knights defend and whether they can you know Zaki cliche but but defendants stay disciplined for a full sixty minutes against two really good teams? And then you put the pressure on in Detroit. And I think that's fair just because of how tight height the Pacific Division standings are right now as of this recording on Tuesday morning I and six place in the Pacific. Division is separated rated by three points which is insane. I've never seen anything like that. I understand it's earlier in the season but it's still pretty crazy. I mean even before the Winnipeg a game Mark Stone was asked about the game and he said I think the Winnipeg Games an important game for us you know he was asked why Marston said because everyone around us in division vision keeps winning and we need to keep pace with that. I think it's important for the nights to try to keep pace with that on this road trip because you know as we talked about earlier in that last homestand they didn't really build up a lot of points despite playing four straight games at home so now to balance that out. I think you need to try to get at least some points out of these upcoming three games on the road. It'll be really interesting to see if they do that. Well Dave I'll let you get back to enjoying the beautiful Canadian weather. Thank you so much for calling in from Toronto. Really appreciate it and got it. Enjoy a lovely vegas yet. I'm GONNA enjoy this a little bit more though. I do vacation to Minnesota Oda a few days because I'm the type of person that vacations in Minnesota in November. So that's something that everyone now knows about me and what I like to do with my free time. Well we are are the

And as a candidate, show sounds pretty good. Let's do it with the boys here. The the packers. Rival and stave or Canadian Dave the only guy in my podcast history that made me start over again. Link, What I thought it'd be cool to talk about and obviously we were on. Saturday special few weeks ago and we are going to continue doing these. These shows as the packers, which is kind of a nickname for people that live in Winnipeg is that? Is that official papers? Is that a thing? We're making it official of it isn't. It's Winnipeg irs. Official. Thing it's. But taggers for short fingers for short you go and. and great tribute bands. Win Piggies is our Beatles? Tribute Band for Winnipeg the. was when he said rival pegues banquet, friend of mine's in that the rolling stones tribute band, but that's great pegues us. I wish that was not already taken because.

I've seen them yeah. Maiden is that's good for anywhere? Yeah, made in Miami made and wherever you right made ever made in made it in the oven for a tasty tree. Eighteen Elvin cake. That's another story for another time but that. That was spelt the end of a long relationship for one of us here. Let's. Have Red Velvet cake in in the states, or is that just a Canadian thing I don't think so could be a reverse like before they had everything in in that before they had everything in the states, and you had to go over the border to get like twinkies and Dr Pepper. Right right. But it is reverse, red velvet cake and being tartar I. Believe are the reverse. Wins. Maple Syrup, some viewers tarata. What's the what's? I! Think it's like an Icelandic cake Grown up. Girls Hung out with Thorson's and but. It's delicious Vena territories delicious. Treat. PRUNES has got this the sweetest icing. You'll ever taste in your life. It's gusting sweet then your dad actually lives up in Gilmer Sqi Gilmore. I don't even know how to pronounce it for real only, and it's the largest population of icelanders outside of Iceland, and not, that's true. She thanks Mr Science Holy Smokes Ryan coming in hot with the VEENA talk and the. More I slide and now tell the other than there is an Iceland. We learned a lot at those. Festivals drunk out of your mind when you're eighteen or nineteen years old, you remember those things man. Those were like well over so insane. I sold. Day We're popping place and we'll get back to, but but it will get back to where he wants to belong tonight talking about Billy Preston, but what I want. What I WANNA. Know is let's talk about the things that you couldn't get in Winnipeg when we were kids, so you mentioned Dr, pepper. That was big I remember twinkies was another. You couldn't get twinkies and hostess cakes, and all that sort of thing and the other good thing. When you're a kid, though right, you wanna eat that stuff. So what also? The other one was Gi Joe Dolls Gi Joe Dolls, the little ones. They'll action figures. You had to go over the border by those really weird. I don't remember that I. Remember Remember. Consumers came out. Consumer receivers distributing. Consumers. You get. That's where I got all my star wars action figures and stuff like that. It was you had order stuff on the catalog out of a catalog. When the guys are still selling should be five behind here. We could buy anything hot and we're going to. We're going to educate a lot of listeners that don't know a lot about Canada about some of the things that we have and don't have in BFI's actually. Giant, garbage company, and that's the dumpsters. Would all have written on the back of a that's right. Yeah, exactly. What the official name for that is, but we won't talk about what the other names are for big industry eight all. Band name because Buffalo Springfield took their name from like a bulldozer. Buffalo Springfield company somewhere that they saw really la or something, and that's where they came up with the name. Yeah, so this is a Susumi. We talked about punk layoff. Making it up anyway so. It's candidate today. Happy candidate by the way. Cheers you guys, so we're going to celebrate all things. Canadian as much as we possibly can in an hour and the goal, this show is educate. Let's say people in the states some things they might not know about Canada and that includes everything then any topic. We can think of so always keep that little. Bit of information in the back of your head. What what is candidate like day like they're like in the states? Everyone's doing the fireworks and all that sorta stuff I always kind of got divide. That candidate was just like. Hey, right on like. It's just another day another another day, drinking blue. Yeah, exactly. Which? It's the fireworks. It's the thing it's. Our fireworks are less explosive. They're really good. They're really good, but yours will kill. People are ours are much friendlier fireworks. You have nuclear weapon I. Spark lady fingers beep Fifty Two's. You're blowing up. The skies. In the states, it's Independence Day. What is July first in Canada? It's candidate. Today we can think of anything else veterinary. Let's just call it like Canada Day, and that's Spilt D. H. Canada. Day Yeah, yeah, because it's the same thing as was Thanksgiving like we discussed before Thanksgiving's in October for no apparent reason that we even have Thanksgiving not sure why that happened. No. Boat Canada that's the funny thing. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA? Proud Canadian but I? Don't know a lot of history I. Really paid much attention to it I found it really boring in school I really did. I found history of candidate extremely boring, because everything was about caucus. Caucus today we decided on this rather they. It's kind of like we mix America with the colonies Canada and you're confused. You're like you just tell it to me like you're one hundred mile an hour baked potato. I would understand that like I. Get that, but when when Brian, Mulroney was the prime minister I was like all God. This is killing me so boring. Caucus caucus so funny. Word Though Caucus. Caucus. But that's the thing. When when? When we're talking about I, remember. In history class, right like in the states, nobody learns anything about Canada. When I first met my wife, she thought that are areas are called Providence's. How many how many Providence's is there in Canada? I remember like in in our history class. We had to learn just as much about American history as we did in Canadian history to the point where there was a history to the name Mr Froehlich or Mr Frolic or something like that and I was Mr froze. That's it may be. Faked that I had to take a giant dumps we. Didn't study for the test American. I'm so. It's the bathroom. For an hour when I came out on, like sorry I could do still got our door. I'm like I can't. Come up with all. Man. I I thought just skipping the class with a massive dump scheme. You're in. You're in the shitter. Cheat sheets exactly I would do all the time I got to go to the can and then. Look at whatever you had got in my pocket. It was the only way I actually passed school. By the way, you could still get away with that today, even with all the crap, the. Phones put a bunch of questions and answers in your pocket and a piece of paper fake. You gotta take a shit. Go take a shit in the middle of a test. Look at the stuff I. You get the test. Read the questions. You're not an idiot. You can remember you go to the dumpster. You figure it out. You get an a plus you heard it here. Everybody's got pass big graduation coming up happy candidate. Everyone graduates this year. Everyone graduates. Okay so. Tumbler strange little world of Canada and I think one of the good jumping off points is talking about a TV shows. That were exclusive to Canada. And some of them are great, and some of them are really really bad, and you want to throw a couple out there, Dave. There are some really good, bad and terrible. It's exactly what I just said. Word for word, but I just said word for word what I just said. I would think that I would start with SETV almost always if we were talking about comedy because it was it was such a huge show, and it really was the culture of Canadian comedy. And it gave us an identity, and some of it was bad, and some of it was great, and some of it was superb. You know it was it had? The thing with setv to is is one of those didn't realize that it was pretty much exclusively Canadian we were kids. You just Kinda grow up, and it's always on, but some of those shows were like it seemed like sometimes they'd have a show that was like an hour and twenty seven minutes, and then the next week the show would be forty five minutes the next week. It'd be like twenty minutes like there was never any rhyme or reason to the programming. They had like sort of like peppers really. Just, keep it. Keep it in the spirit. Of A genus, Knows this, Devi. Because of much like it's Canadian. Canada Saturday, night live, but it's much more wide open, and it's not live more just tape skits, and you could tell this because there's times. When you watch it back a couple years ago I bought the DVD's of of the different seasons, not a good idea because there's probably twenty five percent classic, all classic, and like seventy five percent of like what are they doing? Like nothing is happening here. What a great! Creative thing to be able to do, you could get away with that today. Could you do SETV show today? and have all those bombed episodes week after week after week with someone, give you a chance. And yet there was such great genius that came out of it and great characters, and who's your favorite setv character sets like your favorite Beatles songs a tough one probably, but there's so look. I would say the first before we go to favorite characters. Let's say favourite cast members on the show, okay? I think I think it's really hard. Because there's two eras is like mash, cheers, there's the John Candy era, and then he splits Martin Short shows up. There's never anywhere short and candy are in the same season. I don't think right now. There is no right now, so it's like. Do you like you know Diane? Or do you like a resent Rebecca? Charles Emerson Winchester, or do you like Frank Burns it's. It is totally. Burns yeah yeah. and. We'll get to VP W. Larry Linden is actually fits into that, but we'll get to that later. Leland Ville. Bill then I think so okay. Okay so favorite go ahead rabble. Let's just go with the concept of SETV, which was so brilliant because they had a way to go from scene to scene, and to be able to do whatever they wanted. It would always be this Thursday at nine, because that's when SETV was on, but it would be like you can have a dramatic show of black and white, all right harvey of of a parody of Harvey or something, which was ridiculous I remember watching that as a kid and just go. Oh, it's about this. Imaginary Rabbit as a friend I'm like what are they making fun of? Because that sounds so ridiculous. That, that's actually what the movie's about why. That's that's even weird, but anyway. But. They'd have this this way of being able to go from skit and could. Put in something that's two minutes or something that's like forty five seconds as opposed to Saturday night. Live where they come up with a minute and a half, or whatever and how are they going to end this? They can't transition it. SETV was so brilliant at taking one skit, and putting it into the next right thing, and somehow tying it all together, and they're amazed. They had so much depth. Depth in variety and character, development and everything, and some of the stuff would be like it's like it almost felt like we wrote some of it like I. Mean That's high praise. I'm not saying that we're that in that group of Eugene Levy Catherine O'Hara and that, but it was like we would do that. We would be like. Here's a ten second skit. All this character is GONNA do. That for ten seconds, and the rest of it is shift, so you know what's interesting about and I just back arrived. Just said was that. SETV's imaginary network, so all the shows are part of the network, and then the genius of a to is, they would have the behind the scenes drama at the number, two Guy Caballero and all that sort of stuff, so there was always stuff going on, but I really. Appreciate growing up in Canada because we had like you, said SCTV we had. We also had a huge mix of BBC comedies that we watched on CBC. I don't want to get into, but we had. There was the Monty Python. Fawlty Towers, and that sort of so if you if you grew up in Canada, you have a different sense of humor which translates very well to this day and a lot of the stuff that I still do in wrestling or any of the shows that I do, it comes from that background of the SETV early days. Background of course yeah yeah. So looking at John Candy Classic. Martin Short Classic. Abby gene levies, maybe undeniably one of the best. It's hard to argue against him although. I'm a huge. Martin Short, Fan but. He was just let's try. Talking about some of the levy characters because rush Russia's last tour. If you saw it, it was the fortieth anniversary tour, and they went in reverse chronological order, so they started with the new songs, and went all the way back to the beginning and right before the last song, which was working man, which the stage set was a high school gymnasium with the Amazon chairs, and it starts with Mel's rockpile. Here's a couple of young kids from Toronto and you heard. So Mel's rockpile was the DJ. An Eugene was mel's Ross right here. By! THE CHEESE OF LEVY! It was the cheese of Eugene Levy. He added. I'm Rockin Mel. Up. Woody Tobias Juniors one of the best said dithers as. dithers character, which is. What did he do? It was to do their sued. He just show up and is like driving a huge like. Paddy Wagon. What are those called those wagons or whatever he's station? Wagon station wagon. You'd be just could just see him. Just is because he was so short, he could barely touch the pedals. He was just you just see him looking at the side view so short. So. How'd you come? Did you drove or did you flew? I was had the same thing and then Bobby Bobby. Pittman, which is Great which was the talk show with William? B Williams was was co host that was John Candy, but it took me years to figure out the bobby bitten host. Is Bobby bit man because it kills a lot a bit by bit man Yeah Right Right. How? Also, the show he was on was. Joe Flaherty Scherzer, Sammy, Maudlin and Maudlin oh. Yes, you're being Maudlin means that. Here's me being modeled to Dave Dave. Your music is so good. I love everything you do. Your music is brilliant. It just it just makes fills me full of joy and I love you. You know it's Modlin. You're being like you're telling someone that you just love them and they're just. You're just praising them, so it's like Arsenio Hall was totally. Could Sammy model and I didn't know that name some. Modeling. So. People are learning stuff here on this show. was that was Martin Short when he did kind of that David. David. David Steinberg type or Royce McGee. On Roy. Bribe, oh, you Dave Jericho Copa Nine. Might be talking about brock. Talkshow said Brock lining. The real guy's name was Brian Line ahead. That's IT and he was. This I have this theory about Martin, Short where he when he came up with. WHO's the fan character he comes up with. Jimmy Glick Jimmy quick so with Jimmy. He's making fun of its partially. His a relationship with David Letterman, and his understanding of Brian Line, which those to have different approaches where Brian Linehan would introduce a question, and he would know so much about you that it would be ridiculous like he would. He'd lead the question and know every single thing about you were Dave. Letterman would always be like so you're in movies and stuff. Like, he knew nothing. I think Jiminy Glick was part of that when he was interviewing Julia louis-dreyfus. He was just like he would say so. You're married, so you're married to. Richard DREYFUSS and she's like no, that's not true. I'm louis-dreyfus. He's Richard Dreyfuss. But then he would go okay after they do this whole long thing and he goes. You were in this movie, and he named the most obscure movie ever that she was in, and she would just start laughing yourself It's like yeah. I really don't know stuff, but. We're we're not touching the service on the show. The show's got so much depth, but. But, there was a lot of interesting comedy in Canada. There is a lot of interesting shows. There was a a show growing up in Winnipeg that we only got west of the Red River, so people on the other side of what we call Main Street, which kind of separates the city. They wouldn't even get so US right west of the red. Yeah, you would play like I played baseball and I'd play. Somebody that was from east killed all cross the. Did you see that on, vp w. what are you talking about like? No one got it we only. Saw One channel was VP w channel eleven which made SETV look huge budget like it was it was it pretty. I was thinking about that. Show the other day and how there was a video show. George Licorice is music makers. And he would never have a video, so there were videos for bands back then like you could see you know nineteen, eighty-four like van, halen's jump or whatever right? That George Liquor, but just show a video of the album cover where the song played, and that was his show, he never, he didn't have a budget, and he didn't like air and it was greg early. Early Youtube completely and we talked about this little and starting special, but just to clarify. Was a cable access channel and if you ever saw the movie. With AL, Yankovic. That's exactly what this is, and basically anybody can have a show. They couldn't turn you down. The government rule said they could. But it was like it was like the Star Chamber or something once you got in. If you wanted to show you, wait to somebody else left. And there was so many of those shows, the one that just you just reminded me of member medal inquisition rival. Oh with terrible dog and fearless pig. Hey! Big and terrible dog, and then hate MC angry was the puppet. My name is hey. Maganga Cry And if you try and Merge laugh at me on punch you in the eye or something. Little, all and gangrene and terrible dog wore masks, and the big reveal was when we found out that they worked at records on wheels, which was our. Colleague. Angry. That's terrible dog. That's HILARIOUS DUDE SO I. This is coming as news to me that people on the other side on the east of the. Guinness Show Right, and by the way that those that all the heavy metal show in that. Is was really really cheap ass shit like. Hilarious, but it introduced me to Zebra tank I would never known I hate those two bands if it wasn't for that Thank God for that, but that's true. Yeah, so only part of Winnipeg would get it, but it had the variety, and there was a waiting list of like seven years at one point to be able to get your own show, and you could basically do whatever you want right. The polack poll show some show of a family that just Kinda did weird, jazzy, weird, super, weird, super, deeply weird stuff. How are we? Going to Paul can pollick. Is that I don't know man we can? Keep you ever really explained like like how know trying to explain you guys listening. How maybe you have you H F stations in in your. Neck of the woods and these days, but it was so wacky like pollock in pollock were they married, or were they brother and sister, brother and sister I. Thank and Okay Eighty one for mayor. Yeah. I mean they were in. Here's a here's where this. This is the best part. It's like really nice people though. Now Bury them. Well so you'd see you see these two people. And they were brothers, exactly the same, but the, but the lady at really big breasts, and that was kind of a draw for a bit like, and they would just dance. They'd wear like genie costumes and Hippie costumes, and just play whatever music they could find, and then they would just drag people in to like. Remember the old guy those dancing gorgeous George reviving. George. Dave fellows met him downtown. He met him. Says God, George Fellas, or or George was just downtown. It's like well. Where else would he be? He's just a guy for a cable access. Grady made it downtown. He took the bus. That's wonderful. That's that's pretty famous when you're that famous in Winnipeg. Yay Downtown Winnipeg. Near, let's let's. Talk unless you're east east of the resin you would have. The Hell I was. Sorry, I don't know who you are from the other side of main street. I. It's funny, too because. We mentioned you'll main street in downtown and record wheels, and that was the big outing. For All of us, we. Taking. The bus was such a big deal as I can't imagine letting my teens take the bus. Higher, but that was the place. To be allowed to. You can't even look at the bus. took two totally different world in Winnipeg. I've always said when people ask about it. It's kind of like the BRONX AREA OF NEW YORK! Did Super Cultured especially downtown? Exchange district super old buildings. Ethnic people people are you know? Like a New York thing, they'll tell you right off if you get in their way or whatever that's. Right and a crazy friendliness, too. But it's it's. A, it's a tough city and it's got some cool architecture, and it's really a neat place it it it truly is. It's funny because when I lived there I remember taking the boss like Oh. My Gosh it. Seemed like you're on it forever or whatever, but it literally take you like not even half an hour to get downtown maybe half an hour tops. Maybe but at the time it seems so far now if you're downtown on each there at nine I would leave like our area where we grew up in Westwood at nine, Thirty, eight thirty. Be There on time, and that's insane like A. Big But it's really not. It's pretty simple to get around one thing that Kinda ties back to SETV but I remember the first movie. I ever went to see in the theater without my parents. I went with You Chris and my brother and we went to see strange brew. Which is like? A classic right there and you guys like I was way too young to probably be there by myself, but you guys we went, and we went to the line, and you said Kate you stand here, rival me and me and going GonNa go somewhere and do something so you stand in line so I stood in line I was standing there I was the last in line and aint talking about deal for like. For like an hour until you guys, get back, and then you guys, come back and you're like. What are you doing here? I'm A. I'm standing in line like this is the front of the line. And I was like standing next to the people in the front, and the line kept growing bigger and bigger the back, but I had no idea I just. No one kills me downtown. I think we went to the. Store something. It was probably wants. To totally different world. It was like getting your little. Look! Wow, this is crazy out here. It'd be in the big city. You know what's funny about that rival. Here's the funny thing. I remember because we saw a couple of every suck, ghostbusters. And Maybe Temple of Doom. There was a few that I. Remember seeing for sure and. Let's say it was that one driving home I met a red headed chick on the bus and I was talking to, and I got her phone number, and I still remember her name Kendra Bates. How crazy is that? This is like nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty three, so shout out to Kendra Bates if you're watching him. Garrick. Kendra Bates back in those days you would do that. That was that was. That was a big outing. It was and we would take the bus to go to Calcutta and Games on the avenue and Carter was was low down. It was like the you'd go there. You could buy a hash pipe, or you could buy like a Sabbath poster a big sheet for your. Your Room, you know like a black Sabbath Satin Po Post. It took me years. It's called a head shop, right and games on the avenue. Though was a little bit lower, it was just like well. There was some you know guys playing pinball. That would just look at you like they're going to this portage in main, so this would Kazaa. We were in Westwood. Mothers music was another one that was a video game arcade and a record store. But that was yeah. Take take the bus downtown. Go to records on wheels. Go hang out at at Games on the avenue or our mother's mother's music. Go to Calcutta, and look for Karang magazine or whatever? And then go to go to the. Cold books on wheels or something like that river, the Red River bookshop, and why I still there to no come on none of that pretty sure, it's still there. No I'm pretty sure Red River books still there on. I think it's on Arthur or. Right off of. Read off of there. Yeah, and you would. You could go by a couple of Plateau. No books and then hide them in like I remember one time I bought. A number of the beast album used, and that about two like penthouse magazines are we magazines of the hell we're doing and I put them inside the record, and that's going to smuggle them inside my house. And when I came home, a moment always asked. What did you buy I? Bought this book about this record like Oh record is. Made to call number these. Let me see them like. Mayes. said she's looking. Is this satanic is this? She's shaking and abby. This is. Is this devil music? And I'm like if those porno mags. I'm just going to go I. Don't know how those got it. There must have been the devil. Probably would've probably would've saw those. Oh thank God you just looking at porn magazines and not. Devil. Let's talk about some other TV shows and some of our favorite local bands.

Right also had the legendary super. Dave Osborne bats where he started he still. In Larry David Pass three the recently, didn't he? He. He, he. You Bob is everyone would known from curb your enthusiasm, but we knew for years. It's Super Dave Osborne as so bizarre. was another sketch comedy show? That featured so many that guys. Like? Yes I was I watched police, Academy last night and Mahoney I quits his job parks. The car on the side he's A. is that a WIG Dongguan Don wig. That's one of the guys from bizarre the ball. Yes No one knows we don't know that guy's name, but we've seen one hundred times. That guy that was very hot and cold, Hot and cold for me, but I love Super Dave I. Love Super. Yeah, he was great. Shit. Oh I didn't know that when he when he died Bob Einstein he died. I found out that he was brothers with Albert, Brooks. No. And I was just like look to say the. Other and I'm like who changed their name. And then I realized obviously. It's Albert because he didn't want to be named. Albert Einstein. Shows you. How Funny His dad was his dad was. Harry Parks. I believe his name was, and he was also a comedian. Obviously had a good sense of humor is I signed the Albert Einstein, but he actually. Supposedly he killed it. He killed it on the rose. T was on I think it was on the roast of Lucille Ball where he got up, and he did this hilarious thing supposedly. killed it and it was super funny. He went down and sat down, and then he he he had a heart attack, and he put his head down into Milton Berle lap and Milton Berle goes. This guy should have his own TV show, and then he's like there. Is there a doctor in the house? And people were laughing like no seriously this guy's. On died. He literally died on a roast. How awesome is that? Yeah, but anyway that's him, but so we got super. Dave came out of that, but John Byner here's one other thing that I think is funny. Because Mike Myers is another Canadian who's? Best Awesome hilarious but I really think that when he did Goldmember he. He! I think he did the coolest Ri- ri- Bora Watch. I try to his own thing, Ryan brought a prop I have my own fake vodka year, but. On! Board. We're all. Just. Over here. Can we get a sponsor? You guys if you guys we. TAKE ANYTHING POTTER WE'LL TAKE ANYTHING BUT POTTER'S VODKA. Experience either. John John Viner okay so again. Mike Myers when he did Goldmember, you know he did that sort of yoga thing where he's like flipping his legs up, and like not obviously got fake legs and stuff. He's ripped that off from John. Byner John Byner. Yoga Guy, and it would be him like him halfway in the ground up to his torso. Then you have these fake legs that you'd always bring over is then he's like I'm going to. Make your legs spread this way and this way. He totally stole that from John By. Check it out? I'm talking to you Mike Myers. Let's talk about local. Unless you have something to add debut and say something, no, not at all right. Let's talk about local Canadian celebrities from the eighties. Like I'll throw out. You can still Silvi-. Silvia Kuzyk. Okay, whether lady in Winnipeg for probably thirty years I think she's retired now used to. Be Married or dating Bobby Hall lived outside the city Lucky legend Bobby Hall. That's all I have to say about that. You can google that parent. There might have been some incidents. Between Bobby and Sylvia Kuzyk. You Got Yourself. A hockey player warm brilliant dollars. offered me. Dollars. He got one vice I said. You Got Yourself a hockey player, not not anymore than Dave could get all right. Brother Jake. God brother Jake reminds me of like Hawaiian Tropic Four just listening to him on the radio and try to Tan myself into oblivion. I would just rub that Suntan lotion all over myself so eloquently as his brother. Jake would just spin. The Best led Zeppelin. Classic songs that I had already heard to death, and that was already nineteen, ninety, two or something, he was indeed. Now. He would come and go because he would get these big shots are these big shows in Toronto? He would just leave. He would dump. One here later losers and then he'd come back. They all come back six months old. We all came back. When I was in San Francisco a couple of years ago, I heard a guy on the radio I recognize his voice. It was Lamont Hollywood yeah, remember him. He's a DJ. Ninety two city FM DJ. There for a couple years I remember because every city has terry. Klassen was a big one. Yeah, a of course, the classic Howard Man, shine, the Rock Hall Gist Everyone knows Ya. Shine! A great guy. We talked the other days a fantastic. He's a brother of ours on the show here. That's for salaries very friendly here. What about Bundy's late night? Review? You remember that one I do remember that channel thirteen mt an pours the prairie. He was he kind of variety, show or something like that. Rainman. Those. Those the big news, though an empty N. came as a new television station in Canada in Winnipeg. Yeah! It was a big deal. Because again. We only had these twelve channels, so they came to portage the prairie. I think or something which is forty minutes away and they broadcast it from there, so they had their own thing going and they had Ted Bundy is. was always something like Ted by I think Ted. Bundy happened around the same time, and it was always kind of weird. It was like he was on dis name. Yeah, there's also. There's also King Kong Bundy. The wrestler, who is about five hundred pounds, a big fat, Bald Guy so I never even cared about the serial killer Bundy cared about King Kong Bundy Yeah Yeah very dangerous to you, but mostly the wrestling. Winnipeg. We're I'll be back soon. We're GONNA. Come say hello. Who else can we bury from there? She we talked with Jonky Bill. hunky bills perogie Jamaica. What a nice man!

He was from Winnipeg I think he was, but he was a Ukrainian Perogie, major and the other. perogie making kit that you could buy on like K. Towel. Which is another story we could get into, but it was like you could buy. hunky bills perogie maker and it was plastic dish that you would put the dough in the Perogie stuff in and you kind of you know you'd cheat you, did it? Probably you probably were a true Baba. Now but I mean really you know He. He made them. He made a lot of money selling these things, and he would always do commercials and he would say. Hunky Bill Make Hunky, Bill Perogie maker right I mean. That's the that was his thing. And what is your bill and I? Don't even know what Hunky bill means, but it could be a racist thing, but I'm not going to touch that today. You know, but I mean it could be i. don't even know, but he was calling himself that it was like I. I still don't know just. He definitely wasn't a hunk. Do we have a? We have a picture of him because he's not a hunk. On Radio Man. Something even better, I guess something even better. Let's see if we can get this go over here. By the way this is this like video or Audio audio, so check it out. AS READY AS READY YEAH! While, we're watching the Kerlin hill furniture advertising the bottom. Could. You guys hear this No. Know, can you hear it? I can hear it well. The honky Bill Perot. Let me just try one more thing and see if I may be screwed something up, but yeah, he's talking about the.

He's not. He's not is a he's. He's not as. Ethnic as I remember being I'll. Get the poodle. From still silver or something? He's not on Mareo. It's me. Let's talk. About the schools that we had in our district Westwood collegiate was our school. Schools. We had John Taylor. We'd Sturgeon Creek. We had Phil Rights Silver. Heights was in the area oak park across parts now Westwood is still still there. Yeah, there is yeah and we'll graduate from there. Any thoughts on Westwood as a school. Well, it's a it was a real state of the art school in Nineteen, sixty, five or something, when it was built right and I I I do remember that had had this weird underground system in it, and there was some night that we. And Ryan. I think you were involved with this. I think I, think. Maybe it was one of the guys Hanner somebody that was school. President or somebody got a key to the school because he was the president. That's. No. He was like not much. There's wasn't like a key to his city. It's like hey, you're. By the way who gives a shit grade twelve I run principal of this school or the president. What does that even mean so? They gave him like a special key. What it means is you get a key and you can come in with a break and enter so we. Know, we would have done if we need. We would have done if you didn't have a key. And I remember going in there one night with a bunch of beers and everyone and there was this underground area around where the radio station was. We had a radio station which. When I did a little radio show, which is like that? You did Davis Metal. Is So stupid. We would do these lunch hour things that we play in the cafeteria where there'd be like three people. Shell or something you know what? Yeah, actually before we even started doing that. Show I used to run home at lunch I, just remembered this and I would phone like ninety, two or ninety seven FM and I would do this character and I was, and they would say. WHO's this and I go I go. This is Dave and I just be like some kid like some idiot kid, but I would do it and everyone at the lunch hour in the cafeteria would tune in, and I would do my bit to like peppermint Patty and all these deejays anyway, that's another number we'll just. dedicate something to the queen of Trance Kona. Yeah right editing. We're not starting over so. So, so so you had to rate a showcase. Go back. You busted into. Key we just drink, and then we then everybody the teachers found when we got a lot of trouble, but it was back in nineteen, eighty, nine or something, so they can get a lot of trouble you know would go. Don't don't do it again or something right and that's. What are they going on socio? Here's a true story something. Here's a true story. I got accepted into a broadcasting school in Nineteen Ninety and in high school in one thousand, nine hundred, finishing high school. I failed in mathematics okay. and. I had a forty one percent or something fifty percent of your pass, and I would to go to summer school and I was like I can't do summer. School I was already moving to a different province to take this broadcasting school. There's no way I can do this and I was just freaked out, so I went back to that math teacher every day and begged to be passed, and he would just like I was stocking him I stopped him, and he would be like. Get away from me and I sent them flowers at home. I found out his home address flowers. Could this Ryan? He was the. East Indian Guy Mr Sankar says. Grade twelve math is really hard by the way like great eleven, math I was eight plus no. Yeah so we? This forty two and I knew that the teachers could move it, but you'd be right if you were forty three. They might move if you really nice. A forty two never been heard of forty one lead flowers. He. He called me in and says listen I'm. GonNa Pass you? He says never go into the field of mathematics and he says in never send me flowers at home again. He says, but that's a true story. I just thought what is. What is your on the card Dave. I just like. Please pass me like A. Kill myself probably at that point I was like I'm GonNa. Die Eighteen Diet eighteen. If you don't pass me, here's some flowers. again. Again this ties back into. He was a Hindu math teacher, and when you on VP w where the camera guy four show called. Math Henry's used yeah matthew. which which you ask, the brilliant question on the SMS. What's the difference between math for Hindus Math for Canadians or math? For you? Know Caucasians or whatever you might say I looked into it now. She there is kind of a difference. Racial profiling. Okay, we don't have time for that. We'll save it for the math. For Hindus Edition of talk is Jericho. So. Let's talk a little bit. We talked on this show about the Monterey Social Club. We don't need to get back to them. Let's go back to the Icelandic festival. And those all those crazy things, the folk fest, and all that sorta stuff. Because once we started getting cars. Then you talk Gary Numan then you could go to some place because it went to pay like we said it was. It's a smaller city, but it's very spread out, and on the outskirts of these cities is all the families, and that sort of thing which are closer to the lake, and we could talk about Graham beaches well, that should be good topic, but. Landed Festival that well Ryan probably knew it because he's half. Icelandic Ryan New and more than me. Culturally so Ryan handed over to you, but to me it was a big drug. That's I don't care what the culture about it talking about like. Bands play, or did you go camping? Or what would you do? Hey, listen, listen I'm part Icelandic and it was a big drunk fester. Pretty much for everyone. who was drink as much as you possibly can. which they have shows there there was so does at. Game lead and gamely they'd have. The Icelandic. Festival has been going on for I. Don't know what year it started, but it's been going on for years and it's at gamely. Gamely, and there's. You know there's bans. There's all kinds of stuff they have via to their they have you know Iceland dishes all back? callback they held all that stuff. Actually played there in probably two thousand in to something like that I'll say with with the Rowdy men rock rockabilly Dan. They're not Icelandic, but. If I was and I had some take the time, but perfect. That should be the name of Icelandic death metal band. Vena Tartus. Just a little bit of sweet. Full of sugar that Paul McCartney always talks about icicle, but anyway yeah I'm not sure about that. I don't think they had the band's. They look. Do just going up there to party or what? Yeah, we would sit in the campground. Get Super, drunk and pre drink to go to the bar, which was just some basic bar that was like. You'd see a beach and you'd wait in line and go in there and get drunk, and then you go back to the talent and gamely. They'd have the the Viking. It was called. It was the vikings guys her sure I never went to that, but there was a parade. There was lots of stuff Chris. We tried to walk there one night from your. Dad's place in the middle of winter I believe we were outside having a couple shots in the. Drive to the Icelandic festival, but it's good that we didn't walk their walk. Thinking about that, too, and all of those because there was another big festival that. Like the hip played at her something and Gimli, right is that the big the big day out, or that's best son festival? That's what I was confusing. Sunfast for the Icelandic festival, but the sun fest was also Engalnd Ski. Yes or in that area. The EH family and That was huge to. Winnipeg Laris 'cause winter sucks. We have we. We self isolate for eight months of the year. Which is why we have almost no cova cases here, right? Yeah, right point, but we also, but in the summer it's like every weekend has like eight or nine festivals and people are just they go. You got jazz fast. You Folk Festival, which is a fifty thousand people. People and you got the fringe festival. Which is theater? You know people from all over the world. Come to that. It's all all on the same weekend. It's ridiculous inslee. Oh what should we do I? Don't know what to do. Right everything happens, and then there's eight months of absolutely nothing. Just sit in a corner and just like. Try Not to kill yourself. And Practice Guitar Practice your drums or whatever you gotTA. Get as a musician, and hopefully someday you can move out of this place, and you know live where guys live somewhere. Nice where there's tons of cold cases, but anyway I'm like to say hello to what it begs mayor and Florida's governor. Hollow everyone, continue Did you know that Kevin Smith has made two movies that are set in? Gimli, no really yes. Both. This is his weird. David Lynch era movies, but he did one called. Tusk. and. Another one called Yoga hose irs because he's obsessed with Canada. And he has to film. The the movies in North Carolina because it's cheaper and all that stuff. He has a couple locations shots. Forgive me including the big giant Viking Statue. Wow, that's pretty cool. Task is that based on fleet fleetwood MAC it is. It's a ninety minute long. Drum Solo is what was. Yeah School yesterday, so let's let's talk about some Winnipeg. Rock and roll when a big band! There's lots of Winnipeg rock. Yeah for sure for lately. Kick it off, Dave favorite, favorite, Canadian favourite Canadian bands that aren't huge like rusher Neil, young, or those types of bands, well from Winnipeg or from Canada from anywhere, because like I like I remember like I said when we used to go to the zoo in Winnipeg, there is a couple of really great just bar bands. One was called nothing pretty was the big band in Winnipeg featuring the illustrious Rod macovei on Guitar. Who is just amazing and they were huge us as kids because they had an actual album, it was EP with five songs on it, but it was in stores, and you could buy into us if you had an album. Rich Man Know Yeah. I mean for me. It would be the classics that that everyone kind of knows about Winnipeg globally or or just in our own country, which is the Neil Young of course, but you know street heart Harlequin Orphan. Bombs guess who. Yeah those those are the biggest of I tell us dummies. What about the UC? Suzy's of the world? Well there you go to see them down at the old spectrum right? Yeah I mean I could just name like twenty. The bands I've been in. Named your weapon been goes starting now. Lose litter THC. Lose litters, skulduggery Greg Macpherson of. Band called horse the apartments. Dave SPIVAK project. Some people have heard of that I guess. Hopefully. Track The hot shelley, long's strapless sister Dorothy. This third Dorothy. You sound like Nigel Tufnel right now listening on. The band's you're in. Pretty much and then I thought I could go back to the new or just the originals, but I thought what's the point. Why bother my God both great Let me see I was in primitive means Scimitar Great Caesar's ghost blackstone menace. Fauzi quarantine the wheel blocks. That's a new one. That's a secret right now. Secret surprise, don't. Name the one song you've ever heard of that. Has the word wheel blocks in it and you can guess what's on that we get. Data those are the ones Dave. You Yeah I mean. killers on the rampage was a band that I had in elementary school with the kids and lived across the street and he had. qe And he a flying V I've been as guitar and he had a distortion pedal. And that's all we needed. We didn't need anything that was just like we had songs. I write the songs and there was one call. Of course he did. Yeah Man in red, and I would say man and read you made your bed man in red. You're GonNa Die Da, and that was the tune right and we. We had those two. We had a couple of hits and. couple. You too yeah, yeah, the two of US are here. and. Then the band broke up like it does right. There was a inner turmoil. You know and everything. They park their car funny across the street from where we parked our car. Funny, so there was a break up with the ban, and that's what happens. And then and then I would say you know. We went into the POOP Bukaka thing which we talked about which would, you'll never find online, so we can talk about it now, so you can find it online. Oh. That's okay Kevin never allowed to release somebody. Somebody makes a website about the record it before he'll out to be released we. Know for sure cavs got a whole orchestra booked for urinal you. Stupid stupid funny songs. And then. And then my own thing without project. I got I gotta say IT I. Don't know if we said it or not. Before I gotta say the classic. I don't know what Song. The POOP AKAKA which once again like I, said Adam Sandler made millions off of this mcclain and mclain. You, too. I work condoms with old, not necessarily my own. What are the BASS? Player's wrote a great line. It went in the song. And what's you allowed someone to cover? It was a career. It was me actually. They came up with that well, he actually. Was Alive ad-lib because we just live at the first album is killed live ad. Lib and it was just you know we're talking about this earlier. And this is actually something that we can get into because we're all musicians, we've all we all love music. And that is the soil serious to us. We'd love music so much. No, we would die for music. We all agree with that. No problem so it all started with US improvising and a lot of it was like when we did old. Scimitar songs even before I was in the band when you got to jam, Chris used to make up lyrics and you would. Want a piece of ASS I. Don't want a piece of mass. You don't want a chocolate. Don't want peace of smashed like. You gotTa keep going. You can't stop and restart as SPEVAK. And that's, but that's why that's why that's represent added. We're gold. What he minutes twenty minutes. So that's that's what's great. Is that we improvise and we do that and pupukea was all improvised stuff. where it was saying this crazy music we went. It was a pre written and stuff it was pre written. It wouldn't be as funny as a one. The thing about people that was great and also what's great about the Dave? SPEVAK project is that it's all real. It's all. Real thing and it's. It's Subaru layers of Calcutta. It was so funny, and it's because of just the ad-lib, and the the the thing of it coming out just in the moment and being able to do that and I'm not sure I'm going with that, well, we. Let me. Hold on I. got it I got it. What I'm saying is is this is what I always say. We're taking it back to Winnipeg. Winnipeg was a great place to grow up and and Greece live. Rival still lives there. Dave lives in Calgary I live in Tampa. But the thing with Winnipeg is. It was a very great arts time and it was a very great pop culture town because when I was a kid. I loved wrestling rock and roll horror movies, and they and then beer i. mean ticket for the Horror Movies Rushing rocker concerts in Winnipeg were always. A huge deal like everybody used to come to Winnipeg everybody with exception of. And all that stuff, but. If you did a tour in Canada you have to stop and Winnipeg to put gas in the bus to go on to Calgary or Vancouver. Calgary or to Regina? Toronto etc, so hockey was huge. Everybody played it. Everybody watched it and wrestling with huge everybody watched it. June agree and same with with music. It was a very big musical town, and actually surprises me that there's not more bands from Winnipeg and hold the thought as a must say this. If, you ask me what's the biggest city in Canada for wrestlers as far as? The most famous wrestlers Winnipeg because they always say Calgary, but I say the four guys in Winnipeg which Jericho Kenny Omega Rowdy Roddy Piper Don Callous. The four of us are bigger than any for from Calgary or Toronto or whatever so wrestling was always huge in Winnipeg, and so was music and rival. You're shaking your agreeing with you on that one. That's go I didn't know Rowdy Roddy was from here. Yeah, I had no idea that's awesome. Chuck Todd The musicality that like nowadays. If you want to start a band where I live, tap for my kids, I don't know who's playing music in one everybody played. Grade there's great even right now. Though honestly right now on a local level of Canada Winnipeg, local bands are kicking ass like they're the ones that are winning the most awards, and and in Canada in Juneau and nominations and Shit, and it always is stayed and remained a really great musical place. It's just that you're not hearing about it because you're in competition with Netflix and everything, it's not just all today, the guess who put out an album. Let's line up and get it right the sixties or seventies. That's the fact, but yeah, so I think a lot of it is that Winnipeg is like we said like you're in self-isolation for eight months, or whatever so bands get together and they. They don't really know what else they're playing against. So you you come up with the type of music that that appeals to you and you don't really have this. You're not you don't have another band. That sounds almost exactly like you that you all those guys are even better. Let's try to sound more like them. You just sound like your own thing, so you end up sounding. Your China more original in a way. Because you're not. You're not trying to be sound like the next guy in the other room next to you like there's you're sort of like. If you're the only prog metal band, or if you're a prog metal band in Winnipeg, you're like one of the only prog metal bands and went bag. So you just kind of keep going through for that. Where say if you were in New York or something? All? We're prog metal band where young guys when we go out and we start playing, and then you realize that there's like a thousand other prog metal bands, yes? How do you define yourself from there? which I mean in a way? It's kind of good because you can say. Hey, these guys all sound like this and we want to sound like something different, but most people say no. We actually want to sound like those guys, and they start sounding like those guys, and then you sound like Oh. I JUST WANNA sound like dream theater, and then you're to sound like dream theater and not be as good as dream theater. As a dream theater battle. Exactly you. Know, but that's like saying like. When we grew up in the eighties, it was it was really cool. Because I remember there was, there was a ton of battle of the bands and every buddy in school. If you were in the music side of things we're in some kind of. Whether it was real or not? You know and I think that's a pretty cool element that Kinda might be forgotten in this day and age like we did that battle of the bands, at flipside, which was the teenage nightclub and there was A. Riot Ribisi Ouaga there was like. Fifteen your thing man, he's stateful and now rivals Poland, but that was that was. That was a good place to grow up. If you have creativity, and that's why so many of us are still so creative to this day. When big is the biggest town, but it's very much an artist town. It also yeah, you're right and it does. It has to do with that winter. You know it also has to do with us by the way and the years that we grew up in and how we all admired heavy metal and the Beatles how we didn't see the classic rock and we took it all in I think it has a lot to do with us, we I know with. With Ryan and I on some crazy ad-lib jams. We can turn into like a radiohead thing at times. There's so there we go anywhere. We feel like going, and there's no rules and Chris Obviously it's the same thing with you and I when we're doing stuff and it's like there's no rules in our John Raya. It's the same with the other people I. Don't know if somebody that's thirty is like saying I gotta live in here and do this like we're gonNA. Probably put I guess. That's a good point because I feel like. Kind of what I was saying before. It's like Winnipeg such a small seen that. Same Year in another city like New, York or something, if you're under prog, rock, or something like that, or whatever it is fusion, you're gonNA. Go Wow! I like this type of music, and you'll be immersed and you'll never get tired of whatever. That is like if you're into jazz, you'll never get sick of jazz in new. York if you're in Winnipeg I, Love Jazz, great, and you go, and you see the one jazz band or the two jazz bands that are here, and then you go Kay wall. That's enough of that. I got to see some other stuff so here. We're so much more like Kay. I've had enough of even music. I gotta go into the theater to see what theaters about. So people are more into their into every former music. They're also into theater there into dance like we got like. We have such a small arts seeing that you need to get into the entire art scene as opposed to getting into one tiny part of an art scene, which is just like. Heavy metal. There's a Mexico. It's done, but I agree, too. I have never heard the term planetarium in my life other than Winnipeg I'm I right about this. When we were kids, you would go to the planetarium for like a field trip, or if you wanted to see like laser, pink, floyd or was and the. The planetarium is like a big giant Astronomy Museum, right? It was like the I like the first I maxed to write something. I've never heard of like the New York. It was always combined with the Super Crazy Day, so you'd be in grade school and you would get on a bus and come to this weird world of downtown Winnipeg and you would get out, and you would go to the planetarium in the morning where you would see this like video, screen or something on the ceiling I guess planetarium speaks for itself probably I'm being ignorant to. The terminology, but it's like you know the ceiling, and and you see the big dipper and everything. Wow! Wow, it's really vivid as a kid especially and then they take you to the Manitoba What was it called the? Amanda major used to be Museum of man man in nature, but then the feminists got upset so now just called Museum of nature, and that had the non such in it which I remember. If. The non such was was old ship, and on the dime was there the Canadian diamonds on the Canadian okay change, and they still can smell that smell of the non such as kind of an earthy kind of moldy fresh would, but I remember like you said I was going to bring up the Museum of Man and nature notice respect anybody that doesn't doesn't whatever it's called now museum. People in nature, but the non such was such a thing, and the planetarium was such a thing, and here's another great one, so a couple of years ago I, came back to Winnipeg. Do something for CBS's sports. They like the sports, awards or something. They wanted me to host you guys. Were there maybe weren't whatever we were in where it was that the playhouse theatre? In Winnipeg. Comedy! Bravo Bravo by the way. Thank you, but that was. That's called the playhouse theatre right data. Contagious. Go there and I am looking at it and I'm like Oh. My Gosh, this place is so small, and the reason why I say that is because in thousand, nine, hundred, eighty six. That's why I saw Metallica to like a month and a half after cliff died. In the playhouse theatre and I text lars namedrop. Watch your feet as a dude I met the I met the pantages theatre. A Place Theatre I can't believe how small this place is. And I took a picture, and he's like I remember his minus thirty seven. That date you go outside and walked to the left at go to the corner. Look Up, and you'll see electric thermometer I'M A. Okay. I walk outside. I go to the left I walked on the block and look up and this electric thermometers bill them. How did you remember that dude? It was thirty four years ago. He's one of those guys, but just to see that theater now in comparison to when we were kids was just like. It was like a club twenty twenty years later. He rear ends tennis on the DISRAELI, freeway. Tell that story rival. Tell that story tell stories would. Never been told never been to know now there's never been to. Before? Oh well, this is funny story so. For the Saint Anger tour. METALLICA was in town and There's a bridge called the disraeli bridge, and it goes from Henderson onto basically main street. My partner towns was coming over the bridge and she looks she sees US car. Just like dislike Ferrari, your some the Lamborghini or whatever it is driving like right up her ass, like super fast like this guy's. Typical Winnipeg where there's construction everywhere they they say in in Winnipeg. There's two seasons in Winnipeg. There's some sorry winter and construction, so it's always construction everything bottlenecks. It's it's horrible. Every single street is under construction. But anyway, so he's looking at your. All this guy's not gonNA. Stop Rear Ends Right into your cat. Stop smashes into it, so she gets out and she's just kind of like. Oh! Sorry they're trying to. He's all like flabbergasted in like all freaking out and he's like well. Whatever and they're just trying to get information like. Let's give you know. Give each other information and stuff like that, so she gives her information then. She's like you look really familiar. Were you not in like? Did you go to U. of M. or something like that? Don't know I. DON'T THINK SO I! Don't think you recognize me. And then stakes, his information lars our. She's like Oh my God you. Lars! KINDA! Keep it down. You know it's and he's. She's like Oh my God. That's crazy. You're playing tomorrow ninety. She's he's like. Yeah, that's kind of. That's kind of cool. And, so they get each other's information. He says well here. Give me here's my number of my assistant. Call me tomorrow. If you WANNA, come back to come to the shore whenever? and. She's like Oh. That's great, so she calls the assistant and she's not getting through. Each can't get a hold of the assistance. She wants to go to the show. I don't think there's much damage the car or anything like that you but I don't think. I don't think lars realized that there was no fault insurance here, so don't worry about it. You're covered. It's okay. But anyway so. The night of the show's happening and I'm really good friends with a with foster. Who Does the dressing rooms for? Does the dressing rooms of Italica and shout to foster showed up the phone. Soul sister of the. Rattle while she was also head, cooked for the rolling stones for. Tours. She does the dressings rates six. Other stones addressing Alec like why it was Youtube not available to get the three biggest bands in the world while she's awesome. Awesome and she deserves everything she does, so she sets us up everything, but anyway so I was living in Toronto at the time and stolen the whole story. Go Crazy, so I called foster, and it said Hey. This whole thing happened, so she talked to Lars and tennis out a big family dinner at her parents, place and phone rings, and it's like hey, towns phones for you, and it's like hey, tennis!

It was maidens only stop in America at the time for the somewhere back on tour, which is kind of their? Nostalgia eighties to. If you wanted to see made on that tour, you had to fly to La to see it, so everyone was coming out in spades. What year was that Chris Ed two thousand and ten nine?

And then Chris and I went to the photo bomb behind him was such a great you love. Books but. Hopefully. You can put it up on screen, but it's radio. The Lars Steve Reverend, conversation, and we.

And then he drives into. Well you know we can. Talk. Talk. But anyway, pretty funny all right as we start to wind down here. Down it's a podcast, I can't go along I have a sponsors that I got to think about here. Let's just talk a little bit about the how important! The Winnipeg jets were to the city and to us as kids because to me, having the jets and Winnipeg was one of the best. Parts of the peg when the jets left, and you were still there rival. It ripped out the heart of that town. When when they left no five right definitely do I was at the last show with the last game the last game. Same. This show right the last. Game. Bobby or someone playing the time. Luca, which I think was saying. No we. The kings they played against the kings and I remember That was last this last game and it was very. It was you know I'm not a huge hockey fan. Like like you guys probably are so. But, it was still a huge it was it was A. It was something that made Winnipeg an international thing and once jets went. It was just kind of like. We're just like a small Winnipeg town like that, we know. They're back and there's no looking back. We don't. We were kids though like. Would you WanNa talk about the were? More, they're back Moore's. Lubavitch Nah I was. It was it was a it was a big thing like they laughed and what you should talk about when I don't know if you're allowed to even talk about this, but remember. When we were kids like the jets coming like remember it'd be like a jet would come to your school, or you remember like the school. chums! What kind of jet comes to the school cut school. Did you go the cater Robert Browning? Lower. Boschman came maybe a lab dance great. Over at the bleachers having today Africa. The boxes. Drink a few beers at a meeting. The boxes lap dance. Morris Luca win all over your ass. Anyway. Okay, go ahead might rival. Rabbo. But. The jets was del Howard check big deal. slanty was huge to like such a huge thing to take that away from a city where city has a international relevance, right? It's pretty tough when also goals and then you're like. Oh, now we're just us. You know because you know that there's more Icelandic people want to pay. The there is an Iceland. Not Sure I think I think duckie. He dated a few Icelandic girls so. Of course. Of course. Laura's Eric Berg. That's what I thought. His name was another great player Tommy Bergman. I'm just GONNA name every jet that I can Doug Snail del Howard Chuck Laurie Boschman Brent Ashton Keith. Get you and. Mo- MANTHA. mantha heats a chuck.

Gordon is a fighter at the. Super Nice you like my dad. Because my dad was on the my dad was put over Gord sends a think. Baba's. As we start as. We start to, wind down here. Favorite parts or memory of growing up in Winnipeg and I'll start together. Growing up in Winnipeg was was a great place because it was a big enough city where all the bands came, we had H. L. team, but it was still super small, but we didn't know it at the time, and as you grow up in life, Winnipeg friendly, but they're super tough because of the of the cold weather that we grew up in his been discussing people see. See How do you never get injured wrestler because my bones are still frozen. I grew up in Winnipeg man. It makes you hardy. It makes you tough when you get out at minus thirty rival you still have to do is get out in the morning and go get in your car, and you sit down in that car just waiting for the heater to take over A. Great place to grow up. Really, really appreciate the fact that I that I that I lived there and grew up there and I will never say anything other from Winnipeg. You Know Winnipeg you. You were born in the states I'm from in Winnipeg Beggar from Winnipeg you. It'd classic with. Winnipeg James. That's a classic surival. You That's a tough one man. I do agree with what you're saying. A supposedly command start familiar with commands. Now. That wasn't there in the eighty S. There, but it was invented by a Winnipeg also basically just as a thing where you could press a button on a key chain would start your car. You wouldn't actually have to walk out into the freezing minus forty cells. Throughout Friday light. You're right right and hasn't been in a new vehicles since nineteen, ninety eight, every new vehicle as a key chain that starts a car, but this was a phenomenon twenty five years ago, one nine a phenomenon. Do they still do? Does every car have that maybe they do? I don't know. Thousand Eight. I get mine installed homesick, and here we go l.. Listen to this. Got The bat! You got the bagger haircut.

Got Vip there the. Jazz is Johnny Carson. Be Great if we could just turn this off and then just hang out for the restaurant. Dave last by the way Oh by the way. Hey last lots of Winnipeg. Yeah Great City Great Rock and roll town, great seen There's an energy out there that I've always felt. It was hard to leave and when I go back. I feel in, they call it. You know the spirit of Manitoba or something, but there is something to something in the sky there is, and there's there's a feeling out there where you feel like you're foreheads being brush with greatness. It's very weird, but when I close up the cabin, which I have out there, so I still spend a majority of the summers out there. You know you just feel that. Energy is see the moon and the way it is, and just I don't know you feel like you're on Some old old land with a lot of history that we never really told about, it just feels different. It's funny to the beach. At the time we grew up voted. The top ten beaches employ magazine. That's right, nineteen, eighty, three or something or Actually I can't really find the right information. I just tried looking for this and there's different contradictions on the Internet, but it really was I think it might have been even in the top five in all of the world. Which? Henderson said.
