And those lands produce about 1/5 of the country's greenhouse gas emissions. There's a lot of mining and drilling, but she has a track record of opposing a lot of that and supporting Native American rights. And so it's very likely that that will be something that will shake out in the future if she takes over this department. Plus we have the other picks this week of Michael Regan for EPA and Gina McCarthy. Yeah, that's right. Michael Regan is the head of North Carolina's Department of Environmental Quality, and Gina McCarthy herself was the former head of the EPA, and she was brought on board to be a climate adviser and former Michigan governor, Jennifer Granholm was also selected to lead the Department of Energy.

"President-elect biden sandy. Wanted his administration to reflect america and two of his nominees to lead his environmental agenda. Appear to support that promise.

If confirmed by the senate and new mexico congresswoman deb holland is biden's pick for the interior department. She would be the first native american to serve as a cabinet secretary. Npr's nathan rod reports hamas nomination is especially symbolic. The department of the interior is a massive agency responsible for about one fifth of all the land in the united states deals with natural resources and wildlife recreation and national parks. But it's also responsible for the relationship between the federal government and the people. Those lands were taken from or a number of scholars who have done really great work to show how the creation of national parks was predicated on the removal of native peoples katrina phillips as a history professor at macalester college in minnesota. And she's a member of the red cliff band of lake superior ojibway and she says it's fair to say that for most of its history. The interior department has been used as a tool to oppress indigenous people in the us which is why she says she still in shock that deb holland a member of the laguna pueblo. In new mexico has been nominated to lead it to harm someone who understands this history and indigenous sovereignty and land rights and treaty rights is. Just i mean. I'm just i'm so happy right now. It's just hard to believe that this nomination cam through a large coalition of native american tribes along with environmental groups progressive leaders pushed for holland to get the post now just because of the symbolism but because of her experience she's a two-term congresswoman who served on a committee with oversight of interior and she comes from new mexico a fossil fuel dependence state that is trying to transition to renewable energies in an interview with npr before her nomination holland made clear. She'd want the country as a whole to try to do the same. Climate changes the challenge of our lifetime and it's imperative that we invested an equitable renewable energy economy.

She also said she'd restore trust with the interior. Seventy thousand some employees prioritize conserving thirty percent of all us land and water and undo some of the damage that the trump administration has done to our environment.

The Many Benefits of Participating in Research
"Our guest today again is peter. Mb he's the president of the regan streep institute and he's going to be here today to talk to us about all in. And i can't wait to hear what that's about. But before even that peter if you could just give our listeners reminder of what. The reconstruction institute is considering the president of it. You should be best able to answer that. Sure happy to do it. And it's great to be with you again So the regan. Streep institute is an applied research institute in indianapolis indiana. That's a affiliated with and a support organization to indiana university and the indiana university school of medicine. We've been around for about fifty years and we do research and innovation in the areas of biomedical informatics. Health services research in aging research with the intent of really improving health and health care through innovation primarily in the areas. I've described that relate to how we better use technology data information science and improve the practice of healthcare in order to improve the lives of people everywhere. So what is all in. Yeah so all in is is an initiative that started with the indiana clinical translational science institute or see. Tsi which has the goal of really engaging with the residents of indiana to improve their understanding of health issues so health literacy. We often call it to better understand the role of research in Improving our ability to take care of people to make discoveries to improve healthcare and to give people the opportunity if they volunteer to be a part of research studies and so we do that. A number of different ways through this initiative call in. Is this something that it's an issue. Do people not have a good sense of health. And what's going on and had to be involved. i mean. certainly. There's some people who have a very good understanding of health issues and and certainly their own health but there's a lot of folks who you know may not understand a lot about the health and also the The rapidly developing science behind. What we think of as modern day medicine and healthcare and so as part of the indiana see. Tsi we work across the state to improve how we can take better care of people through research through discovery and part of that involves a we believe very strongly engaging with the popular engaging with people and making sure that they are not just a. We do not want to think of people who participate in research as so-called research subjects that you know that's not really the goal. The goal is to have participants. The goal is to have people who volunteer. Who understand what it is that we are studying and And then volunteer to be a part of those research studies and there are several reasons for that number one the more engagement. We have the science that results from that will actually be applicable to our population. Right so the more people from indiana from our communities that represent the diverse communities here across the state the more of them that are engaged the more likely the results are going to benefit them in their communities. And we think that generally speaking the impact of that is not only going to be felt by the kinds of therapies and resources that we bring to help people get better when they get sick but also just generally having a better understanding of health issues. will probably result in a healthier population. And that's an area where indiana traditionally hasn't done very well so we want to improve that. So how do you get people more involved. How do you get them linked in so. There's a number of different ways we've gone about. This one is that we've got these days of course websites and apps and other solutions where people can engage so for instance in the all in for health dot info website. People can go and read about health issues. They can learn more about the kinds of studies that are going on across our universities and our academic health centers across the state. They can volunteer to participate in those studies so we have a volunteer registry. Where at this point. As of last month we have over thirty thousand hoosiers that have signed up to be a part of the registry and that's pretty substantial in addition to that we broadcast information in different ways. Sometimes we do things like this with podcasts. Sometimes we do advertising and other kinds of activities all with the goal of trying to get people in our state to understand the important medical research. That's happening understand the kinds of discoveries that are being made to help them in their families and then giving them opportunities to connect so what happens when someone registers. What's the next step. so they register. They will get confirmation that they've registered and then there Depending on what they've agreed to they'll start to get information about health issues so we send out periodically newsletters and other kinds of information from a lot of the science. That's being done here across our different university partners at indiana university and purdue and notre dame and otherwise across our health system partners so they'll get that information and in addition they'll get notified and have the opportunity to see information about research studies as well when they become available and that can happen again in various ways that we can reach out to people so good example recently was giving people the opportunity to sign up for studies around covert as an example.

I get to truly create my ideal life and lose my purpose and I have a seven-figure business and beyond any of that the thing that really gets me out of bed excites me each and every single day is actually helping people do the same right and helping people create the idea of reality and what if that looks like? The Ben. And it's interesting because I think you can maybe go online and look at my life now and say, wow, that's amazing or you're so lucky.

I want to take you guys back a step fist lay before I take you behind the scenes of some. Of the work that we get to do today and I want to share with you that I grew up in an amazing family in Auckland New Zealand, and this family was very much a family that believes him following the system, right the traditional system of going to school and getting good grades and working really hard and a lot of people might look at me now and say you know, Regan you'll clare on your vision. You'll so clear around what you manifesting and calling in. Will you always that way? You see I got us all the time as a child. What do you want to be when you grow up and I never knew? I was never the goal that I want to be are going to be that I didn't nor. and. So because I didn't are slotted into that system, right and my dad used to say to me on all the time Regan if I had your opportunity, I would have been an architect regan. If I had your opportunities, I would have been architects. Regan if I had your opportunities, I would have been an architect. So what do you think I did university way Really original idea, right I went to architecture school and I, started out really because I didn't know what I wanted to do. So I jumped into that and I remember this lecture theatre and a new look down there about three hundred people in the room and I was sitting there and the lecturer woke in and he said something like welcome future architects him to your reality. We're going to take you on a journey and we're going to take you to visualize ation that is going to allow you to see your life as an architect twenty years out from now. Now, I wasn't sitting in ruins like they never done anything like that. So I sat there and I thought this is cool. said to close my eyes and I listen to his voice. And I, started to sink into my future. And what I saw in that visualization literally made me sick to my stomach. And saw probably the worst case scenario of May being disconnected from my purpose not living my dream life getting in a place where I created a life because people had told me I should instead of actually connecting with me. and. I had this moment where it's like my mind disconnected from my body and my body just kinda got up and ran. Out of the room. And it was in that moment that I. decided I met a decision which changed the rest of my life. I decided that you know what I'm. GonNa figure out fifthly why hia and secondly I'm going to figure out how to get there. And as a bold seventeen, eighteen year old. Picked up the phone and who did I call I, call my dad, right. And I remember I was taking any picked up the phone and I told him I just straight out say dad I can't do it. I'm not going to be an architect it's not my life that's not my purpose I'm not going to do it. And To my surprise, my dad tinder around and said. Well Okay Baby I want you to be happy at the end of the day. So support you in that. And he been sits me he said so regan. What are you going to do? And I said Dad just give me a minute. Just a minute, right That's romy often to a crazy beautiful journey. I went to Dr Google excess what you do when you might generation right? Who has leonsis all the time.

Who is Alex Cintrón, the Astros hitting coach who instigated brawl with the A's?
"Brawl in baseball yesterday. Ramona Reynaud went right after Alex Cintron, who is the head coach for the Houston Astros, And this whole thing was bizarre to Maine. We know that there is a beef between the athletics and the Astros. Mike Fires used to pitch for the Astros was on the on the athletic still is on Lorraine. Oh, gets hit twice in the Siri's that the 2nd 1 I didn't see the first of the 2nd 1 was not intentional. But he was walking to first base is so John boy pretty much tryingto figure out what was going on. And I guess Laredo was trying to tell the picture had to throw the ball. Cintron asked, get suspended from saying his name correctly, If now I apologize, but the bench the hitting coach has to get suspended, has to get a lengthy suspension. Because he is basically egging on Lorraine. Oh, who's at first base? And it was gutless. What the hitting coach did he goes? Oh, yeah. You come over here You come over here. The guys 41 years old, if this is not A 60 70 80 year old heading coach. This is not who is the Mets pitching coach? That's your Phil Regan. This's not him or or the late. Great Don Zimmer with Pedro Martinez, where you see potentially an older person get thrown to the ground. That was not this. This a 41 year old yellow Nazareno basically, Tom come over and fight him, and he did the ultimate Gutless move off. I'm going to tell you to come fight me. But the minute when you take a step forward three for my players are going to step in front of me. And then I'm going to become Mr Hold me back, bro. Type of guy. That's the worst person in a fight. Someone that instigates the fight and then doesn't throw the punch and doesn't actually fight when someone comes charging at you because of you just being ridiculous in the dugout. That guy doesn't get popped if Joe Kelly gets it with what it was an eight game suspension. If this is it, the heading coach here for the Astros doesn't get At least eight games, then that's ridiculous. Albay have no clue how to figure this out. They'll mess it up. Did you agree with that? Then we have a heading coach, basically telling Laredo to come over and fight him. Or Laureano. Excuse me. To come over and fight him. And then he lets what 34 of his players take care of it that was weak. Yeah, it's weak and it's like extra dumb when the league is begging you not to have a bench clearing altercations, and then you instigate won as a coach, not even a player for seemingly I don't even understand the reason. And it even begins. So, yeah, you would think he's going to be in big, big trouble, too. We

But then I found this one guy who himself had done some journalism or something or writing of some kind is a mix store that had both hip hop dj gear and then they also sold video games and this guy has written something like just a a dasan of this kid to walk in and say hey. Can I borrow your games? He lent me a couple of games. Actually got to be good friends over the years and that'll let into and finally publishing on the Internet which was let let me to the web and let me to essentially get back into computers from a perspective of using them to build stuff because ever is really just using them to play video games. Play more games such a big video game fan but eventually it ended up that using computers to make things was more interesting. It just took a while I mean and this was also at a time where Home computers were. I mean they're not what they are now like this timers like you know sixty four K. Eight hundred twenty eight K. of Ravin little floppy disks or maybe even a cassette player. So when you talk about playing games this is sort of like an entirely different universe to what people think about. It really isn't. It was funny because in those days the way video games disputed at least sort of the sort of small games. They were actually written down at the back of the magazines. I had the game. The Code Code was listed out. It was like two pages of very dense coat. And you have to type it in yourself. That's amazing and I did that. And it would take like two hours to type it in and at that stage. I didn't know English. I was just sort of Danish kid. Like what six seven eight years old didn't know English and of course I got it wrong and programming is just such a unforgiving you have one comma wrong and the thing just doesn't work and you have no idea why so. That was kind of frustrating years but that was the computer the Commodore Sixty four which was the main machine back. Then one megahertz right like that's not an etc as saturation the CPU literally one herds. It's amazing I remember. I computer in our home. I think that even a little bit. Before that was Radio Shack. They had the trs. Eighty quote trash. Eighty and you had to hook up this external cassette deck and hope you got the volume right so you record it something. It actually was. You could play it back and get something. That wasn't total gibberish. I remember that because this was so so the era of when I started playing video games they wouldn't buy games we shared. So you would copy the cassettes and there's always deportation as you copy them back and forth and at some point you'd be like well. This is the seventh copy. I don't know if it's GONNA make it. And then you could see on the screen when you're loading the game on Commodore Sixty Four. The screen would flash in very specific ways that had these bars of color. And you developed a sense of like is loading like you said getting the right things and it was just. It was just fascinating and I have those vivid images of the loading screens with the loading graphics. Which was just this random noise which reminded me of when I got into. Pbs's import systems. You'd have to modems and they'd played this very specific sound like. Could you imagine Geduhn good young and you could hear what a proper connection sounded like and thought that Tech Tilleke of computing. It's just something. I'm kind of sad we lost. There was just some analog dimension to it that was really satisfying. Yeah it's like it almost made a tactile and a certain way like century where it's also it's kind of funny that you bring that up because it's almost like you know now look at technology and all these. Apps and stuff like that and intermittent reinforcement is intentionally built into all this stuff but that was like this early hint of like is it going to or is is is completely a meltdown godly. Yeah I remember even with the cassette. So you'd have multiple games in some cassette. So you'd fast forward. I gotta get into like three minutes thirty two and sometimes wade would set up it. Be Right in between and you wouldn't know quite win to start the play but in for it it was magic or maybe it was magic maybe told Shit and you look back through. Nostalgic is like Oh that was great. Connect with a certain moment of your life But I mean what's interesting? Also that is. It seems like even the earliest days. It wasn't enough for you to just know what was happening on the surface like there was something in you know. I need to understand what's happening underneath the hood which has been this consistent. Theme will literally almost everything that you've done. I certainly would get very deep into something so video games for example. Even if it there was some parts of it that with the mechanics deal for Howard's old built but then there would also be the social aspect so for example if you'd like to play video games and you wanted a lot of idioms you kind of had to have friends and you had to have friends for me. That age were older. Who had access to different things who could get different things very sort of? You've got to work the crowd sense to it. You got to organize you gotta get into these communities. You got a dive under knees. You've got to find out. What make these people clicks us that? Hey I'm a what nine-year-old kit and I show up at some fourteen year old boys house and how do we connect? How do we connect over the fact that like otherwise? We don't really share a lot of things right and I had that for. I mean basically anti tie childhood that revolved around Video Games and computers. I was always thinking like who can teach me more and inevitably it be people. Were there other kids? Who were five? Six seven eight years older than me. I remember it's funny now living in the US and living in an environment where like you just don't see nine year olds walking the street right like that's just not a thing anymore but especially in La. Nobody walks right. Nobody wants to hold the criminalization of of Childhood and self driven child. When I was I think like eleven twelve years old. I'd go to these computer. Parties would like fifteen sixteen eighteen year old. And you're like you're just even trying to picture that image now and it's such a difficult image but it really enabled me to learn without speed limits that I was not confined as a eight year old to learn from other eight year olds because I mean really. That's a pretty slow way of learning. If you WANNA learn fast from someone who really knows a lot more than you do really have access to a lot more than what you have and I picked up on that very early that to go faster to suck in more. You had to deal with people who were multiple levels ahead of you and then just try real hard to keep up and that was just so much more fun
Jeff Bezos Pledges $10 Billion To Fight Climate Change, Planet's 'Biggest Threat'
"Jeff bezos. The world's richest man announced this week he is donating ten billion dollars of his personal fortune to fight climate change known as the basis Earth Fund which pays us announced over instagram. Yesterday it is thought to be one of the largest philanthropic gifts ever for more. Let's bring in Mike Regan senior editor at Bloomberg News. Mike Germany so bays us in the past has been criticized for not doing that much in the way of philanthropy in fact we just talked to the CEO of AIRBNB. Another billionaire and I asked him whether he thinks Beza should be giving more money to charity and apparently now he is. He's pledging eight percent of his personal wealth to fight climate change. Why this new commitment? Well all we really know about his motivation. So far is just a caption on instagram. Picture of the Earth. And it's only about one hundred and twenty five words but what he says basically is in part that climate change is the biggest threat to our planet and he says he wants to work alongside others to amplify known ways and to explore new ways of fighting it. Now with that said I would point out that basis has come under a lot of pressure even especially from employees within Amazon itself Since when you think about it delivering all those Amazon packages obviously has a big impact on the environment. So he's heard a lot about this over the years. Well Yeah. Let's talk about that. Amazon's impact on climate Not just the carbon cost of shipping everything around and flying everything around but also all those packages all those boxes you know. Sometimes they can be recycled and sometimes they can write and even now on twitter and social media.

"And the irony is that it wasn't revealed by somebody who was one of his victims but by one of his political enemies. Donald Ripley has had been a former liberal Bagman. Who Helped Regan get elected? But Ripley felt he had been rebuffed by Regan and he lost a lot of money. Would Nova Scotia. Light and tower had been nationalized so he nursed those rudge's for many years. He switched parties. Who became a conservative and then he was a columnist for a local TV rag basically had to listings and a couple of columns? He was one of the columnists and in Nineteen ninety-three. He decided it was this time. The public knew about Regan's crimes and at some point key called Philip Mathias the CBC reporter who had done all the investigation and North gotten his story on air. And said you know basically. I'm going to write about this. And he did. Ripley's call him was a blind indict him about a powerful Nova Scotian. Who had been sexually abusing women for decades but he got almost no response and he then went off to rcmp with what amounted to not very much at all? I mean he didn't have any real evidence. He didn't have any complaints. He knew stuff in a vaguit Naguid happened any sort of directed to Matthias. Who under normal circumstances probably would have brushed them off? He was not somebody who was in the business of helping the police out to investigate things. He realized that this story which was legitimate was never going to be published by the people who who had hired him at the time so he greeted me with the mounties and he gave them chapter and verse of the material that he gathered and I think in his investigation he gathered a dozen women had gotten some of them on video talking about what had happened to them and suddenly the mouth he's had something to go on the RCMP was finally investigating at first. They did it quietly gathering evidence but soon the story leaked out and Gerald Regan he went it on. TV and loudly proclaimed his innocence. That interview was a tipping point. Many women who've been attacked by regan were outraged buys denials so they called the police and so suddenly the mounties were inundated with women telling them these stories. Some of whom were willing to go on the record and Be Witnesses two years after that initial blind item the RCMP charged Gerald Regan with seventeen counts. It's related to thirteen women. Regan Hired Ed Greenspan. The best defense lawyer in the country. Here's Greenspan on the day. Regan was charged. I think this is an entire waste of taxpayers money. I think this entire police investigation which we have heard from people that they've approached was high handed handed An improper is process has not been fair. It has been totally unfair. And it's because of who Mr Regan is now if you're you're familiar at all with how most sexual assault trials of famous people go. You can guess how this went i. The crown began to drop charges and decided to focus on only the most serious charges. Regan's lawyers when a number of important procedural fights in court the crowd attorney leading the prosecution was pulled off. And when Reagan's Higgins victims were brought to the stand Greenspan tried to shred their credibility. I think there's no question that Greenspan has a lawyer was a bully and he was a good from a client's perspective but certainly not. From the point of view of justice. One of Regan's teenage victims had lied on a transcript when she was a child in the nineteen fifties she had moved from one place to another and she wanted to be with kids of her own age so she had sort of minor. Mind your fudging of her transcripts so that she could get into the greed that you wanted to be in with the kids her own age and by my recollection it would have been about about three days of cross examination focused on this one piece of paper and the argument was you would lie about that. He would lie about anything. You're lying about this. Regan's lawyers try to introduce reasonable doubt towards all of the allegations in similar ways. He dug up secrets from in their past like unwanted pregnancies and weaponized them. He cast doubt on tiny details. Eddie Greenspan when he was cross examining one of the women who said she'd been raped in a gravel pit claimed loudly. That couldn't have happened. It didn't happen. There's no gravel pit on the road that you described so nothing nothing nothing happened. You're lying and this came out in the news stories and again were inundated with calls from people who said I know where that gravel pit is on this road at this point and though the charges against Regan were treated by the media's allegations with the lawyer said about the accusers often wasn't here's Maggie. Rohrer again they retargeted viciously in the media. At that time viciously he had a very powerful built in protective system around him. And when these women were being ripped apart in court it was reported on in the media as fact but even as the trial was playing out. Stephen Kimber would hear from new victims. I remember when I was covering the preliminary hearing and I I was teaching at King's at the time and so I had to rush back to a meeting. I was supposed to attend at the university and I made my apologies and I said you know what I was doing. And there were five people in the room and three of the five had had experiences with Gerald Regan. The jury had only been allowed to hear a small small subset of the allegations against Regan but on the day they began to deliberate a publication ban was lifted. And all of that information the media was able to report on dozens of other allegations at the public yet to hear but it wasn't long until the jury returned their verdict not guilty on all charges. Gerald Regan was free to go appeals would follow and legal wrangling continued for a few more years but by two thousand and two who the legal fight was over and Gerald Regan's Rehabilitation had begun in the early days after the verdict verdict. He was shunned by not only sort of ordinary people but also by those people who were his colleagues sometimes sometimes his his peers in politics and business there were receptions he would attend and people would turn their backs on. But that stigma began to fade. He continued to work at a major law firm he served on the boards of companies. He was quoted in the media. His son Jeff's political career continued to rise and when his family background was raised reporters studiously avoided questions about his father's sexual predation. Here's a c-pack interview between Jeff Regan Begin and Katherine Clark. WHO also happens to be former prime? Minister Joe Clark's daughter. Did your mom have any idea what she was getting into when when she married your dad did. She doesn't that there was going to be politics in her life. Not just from her dad. Well clearly and clearly dead was interested in fall two zero convention and it wasn't long before he started running for office and in fact he ran four times unsuccessfully before he was finally elected yes when me to hit in twenty seventeen. Politicians across. Canada started to be outed for their misconduct in the workplace. The same was true. Nova Scotia serious allegations were made against a former. MP and a sitting MLA mega roar wanted to look into how the Nova Scotia Legislature was approaching coaching the issue. I really wanted to understand this moment in time and I wasn't seeing that reporting turn-up anywhere beyond just the basic facts of these cases and so I set up to try to do that and really almost nobody responded to me like I contacted every single. Mla Province province and ironically one of the only people to respond was the minister then minister for the status of Women Kelly. Regan who was actually actually Jerry. Regan's daughter-in-law the few responses she got were generic pablum and no one was willing to grapple with the fact that a premier of Nova Scotia had been allowed to get away with such horrific crimes for so long. You know it's still a really small place down here and there's this kind of like a well. We all know what happened there. We don't talk about it you know. There's a culture of silence whenever Gerald Regan was in the news. Stephen Kimber would get emails phone calls. And after Regan's his death women once again got in touch probably a dozen women he mailed me texted me called me to say what had happened to them and they were. None of these people were involved in any of the trials or any of the criminal allegations Gatien's.

"And in all this sordid affair no one appeared. Have to care about the woman who had been assaulted. I think. Probably with the exception of the sergeant at arms who took care of her that night and made sure she got home nobody nobody really did pay much attention to her and her interest in all of this which was also both sort of standard operating procedure in in this case but also not uncommon in terms of the time people you know we're told basically to suck it up. You know this happened. Okay get on with your life. The assault was the first in a series of events that would land Gerald Regan in court. But it would take over a decade gate for the law to finally catch up with him. After Gerald Regan attack the legislative page in his office journalists finally began to move on the rumors that had that surrounded him for years. One of those reporters was Philip Mathias. Who worked for the CBC's Fifth Estate? Philip interviewed a number of young women who had been assaulted altered by the premier and he was shocked to discover that even a CBC colleague had been attacked by Regan in a hotel room and he thought he had the case and the CBC in the end killed his story. And I think that Philip felt that for whatever reasons the CBC had killed the story to avoid problems with the federal government with the Liberals with the ministry on the advice of lawyers other publications had their stories killed two regan was defeated in nineteen. Seventy eight and his government fell but two years later he had been elected to parliament and Pierre Trudeau. Put Him in his cabinet along with other portfolios. Gerald Regan was the minister responsible for the status of women and for Awhile. It seemed like Regan would never be a held accountable for his crimes. Some people did try however as he was running for reelection in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. One man created a pamphlet and took a door to adore in Regan's riding of Nova Scotia Gadfly ICONOCLAST. The Mike Marshall knew about these stories about some of the stories and had done some investigation and put together a pamphlet since nobody was reporting on this. He put together a pamphlet and took it door to door during the election campaign being really calling out written and being very clear on the fact that he had done these things no mainstream media outlet would cover that again because suv their lawyers advice. He didn't win re election but had little to do with the pamphleteering. The liberals were trounced all across the country after he ost regan did what former politicians do. He got a cozy giggle law firm. He served on corporate boards but he didn't stop attacking women in Nineteen Ninety. He sexually assaulted a fellow. Corporate board member and a Calgary Hotel three years later. The police would finally begin to investigate Gerald Regan.

"Just a warning. The next section is going include some descriptions descriptions of graphic sexual violence that won't be suitable for everyone from at least the time he was in his twenties. Gerald Regan would prey on young women. He had a car and so he would drive women home for young women from the skating rink and try to molest them in his car and he felt entitled to do that it was clear from what he said to these young women that that this was his right now. We debated amongst ourselves how much which detail we should go into here. We want you to understand the seriousness and the violent nature of what Gerald Regan did. But we didn't want this to slip into the salacious relations or the exploitative so I'm going to tell you about the first person we know that Regan victimized and try to keep the details to what's essential from then on Mary Graham and that's not. Her real name met Gerald Regan in Nineteen fifty three. When she was seventeen he was twenty five? They used to give rides to her and her friends around the neighborhood in a letter to Stephen Kimber. She said Jerry was talkative. Mildly flirtatious and seemed interested in them unquote. He kind of singled me out. I was flattered to have this college educated man shown interest in me a high school girl. I like talking with them the first first time they got physical in any way regan quote lunged at her out of nowhere to kiss her. It was sudden uncomfortable but she was willing to keep seeing in him quote. We would talk a lot neck a little. She said I was able to keep through much protestation pretty well within my personal code of necking only limitations. But on the day of their first real date Gerald escalated he parked his car in a secluded spot and she says that Regan than raped her quote afterward. I was numb terribly ashamed as though somehow even though I protested vigorously and tried to push him away it had all been my fault. Mary started to cry. Regan accused her of lying to him about being a virgin. He warned her not to tell anyone because his legal career could be ruined. If she was quote stupid enough to tell and he promised her that he would never do it again but that was a lie he would rape her many more times. Mary began to hear stories about Regan also attacking some of her friends. When giving them rides she eventually stopped seeing Gerald Regan but his crimes? James Escalated Regan raped a fourteen year old girl whose mother he knew the pattern was similar. A ride in a car a random attack a threat. She was scared and didn't tell anyone until one day. She told a friend what had happened. It turned out regan had tried to rape her to. She was fourteen as well at the time he had just made his first failed. Run for office. And as the years went on he would assault young women and girls again and again and again he would grab a woman out of the blue without any preliminaries. It was not sort of a romance or anything else. It was sort of. Just you know a a quick grab. He dried his tongue down their throat. And then when it was over he would stop and he would continue as Z.. If nothing had happened and he tended to pick on women who were small in stature not very powerful. Didn't have the wherewithal in the sense to challenge him. He made it very clear that they would not be believed and that he had credibility they didn't and then it would be sort of dangerous in a certain sense to challenge him on these things after he started a family with his wife. Regan began to attack his children's babysitters. We know over at least half a dozen babysitters who were his victims. Some he raped some fought him off few told anyone then as it became a lawyer. There's a story of a woman who came to see him who was dealing. I believe with the divorce and he attacked her. He just kept escalating and what he did. In many cases became more serious and he he was less likely to take no for an answer Regan's violence didn't stop at the doors of the legislature in nineteen sixty nine when he was leader of the Nova Scotia Liberal Party. He sexually assaulted and an attempted to rape an eighteen year old clerk. She told her mother and a neighbor. Who is a Halifax police officer? But they decided not to report Regan because of his power and and the next day she was called into the office by the liberal. Party's executive director. And she was fired when he was premier. He attacked numerous young women. Who came in looking for jobs at province house? He attacked women in bars and at Liberal Party events he assaulted two journalists in hotel rooms. Considering the scale Oh and brazenness of his crimes the obvious question to ask is. What did the people around Gerald Regan? No you'd have to be deaf dumb and blind not to you have heard the stories of his borish behavior with women. I think that it's fair to say that most people who were associated with Regan Regan knew he was borish that he was lecherous. You wouldn't want your daughter to be in a room with him alone alone. Sometimes you know that there were people who sort of shepherd at him out of rooms to make sure that things didn't happen. I think at the same time from my knowledge of people who were around Regan at the time is that most of what happened that would have would be categorized. The the sexual assault happened in private so that they didn't necessarily know specifically what he was doing to be fair. They also didn't spend a lot of time trying to figure figure that here's what we do know. At least one senior minister and his cabinet walked in on him attacking one of staffers. He told Regan quote. You keep your fucking fucking hands off. My staff. Regan stopped but he faced no consequences. The Conservative Party of Nova Scotia had a file on Regan sexual assaults. But they did nothing with it. And it's clear that Regan's predation of young girls was in some ways an open secret with people making jokes about it. A Regan aid once yelled across the room room quote. Hey Premier. I saw you with that thirteen year old. But don't worry. She had the body of a nine year old women working in the legislature were regularly literally told not to be in the same room alone with him. There was one incident that would be the spark that eventually led to Regan's crimes becoming public one day in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven. An eighteen year old legislative page went to see Gerald Regan in his office. She was looking for his help to apply for a job once they were alone the premier of Nova Scotia attacked her. She ran screaming out of his office into the arms of the legislatures sergeant at arms and this was heard sort of all over the legislature. People knew that that it happened. Journalists soon heard about the assault some tried to report out the story but the legislative page was hesitant to go public but she was convinced by a female reporter to record her recollections of of what had happened and in the reporter gave her the the audiotape and the idea was that if she ever did decide to go public that the reporter would get the tape and be able to use it she took the tape back to her apartment and then something strange happened there. It was a robbery and the only thing that was taken was the audio recording. The tape where she described the premier of Nova Scotia sexually assaulting salting. Her in his office was the only thing that was stolen. She went to the police but they brushed off. Did Nothing. Not many people knew about the recording. But what's become clear years later. was that one person who did was Alan. Stockholm stock was a corrupt union. Official turned developer are and at the time he was trying to get the Nova Scotian Housing Commission to buy a property from the provinces housing commission had said no and so there was a meeting between Regan and Stock All at an airport in Toronto at some point and apparently stock all threatened him obliquely or directly with this tape and making it public and what he wanted was the government to buy his property. They didn't do that but they did. Give him a very sweetheart. Contract for a number of months before Regan was defeated in the next election. Premier Regan was being blackmailed because he sexually assaulted a legislative page and it looks.

"After High School Jerry. Regan went to university. But he'd often skip class to do the play by plays at local hockey games. He made a name for himself as a sports gasp especially when he started bringing over. NHL Teams to play in Nova Scotia. In the off season he went to law. School became a lawyer and gained a reputation fighting fighting for the rights of workers in the nineteen fifties he was one of only three lawyers in Nova Scotia that will represent unions regularly. As a lawyer he was successful. Small town lawyer became very involved in the Liberal Party in Nova Scotia. That was his ticket to success. After that at a young liberal convention he met Carol Harrison. Who'd go onto his wife? Here's Jeff Regan. Talking to CPAC about how his parents met. Both of them happen to the attending a young liberals convention in Nineteen fifty four in Ottawa. She was handing out souvenir bags of Saskatchewan Prairie tweet on the front steps of the Center Block and she had once we young lawyer from Windsor Nova Scotia with my dad. And you know they still have the Bagel. They don't I think dad was Smith and mom reciprocated. Apparently Regan ran for MP under the liberal banner and lost. He tried to get in the next election and lost again by an even bigger margin. He got the nominations he ran. He failed time and time again and then finally. Finally he was elected federally in nineteen sixty three. Gerald Regan was off to Ottawa. But it stay in the nation's capital we cut short by his ambition even though he was viewed as a rising star. Regan was still at Nova Scotian at a time when the Liberal Party was turning towards questions of bilingualism. I'm in national unity. There wasn't much room for Unit lingual maritime to move up so when the opportunity arose Gerald Regan move back to his home province to run for the leadership of the Nova Scotia Liberals five years later after crisscrossing the province in beat up car attending every local constituency meeting. He could wangle an invitation to. He did finally win. And Become Premier in nineteen seventy the conservative government government. Just really tired and I think that probably it's fair to say as happens in many cases Carol Regan's Liberals one not so much because they one but because the conservatives lost here's Regan. After he won I was very pleased with the majority and Halifax Needham. You felt that neither do better than last time. I attempted to work very hard representing the constituency. But I certainly didn't anticipate anticipate such majority. This size during his first mandate Regan made a number progressive moves. He got rid of the poll tax that sent poor four people to jail. He Established Law Reform Commission lowered the voting age and nationalize Nova Scotia Light and power but his government wasn't underpinned by any kind kind of political conviction. He was a guy who liked being called the premier he was known as the premium that was his nickname he was. He's happy enough to take reporters on tours around the halls of the legislature point out. Whose portrait was who on the walls and he knew how long they they had served and how long he would after in order to have become premier longer than they were? Regan also vindictive. Stephen Kimber is pretty ensure that Regan got him fired from his job at the CBC. We decided to do a documentary about the Patriots agenda. Such going back to vote buying and and contract Shuffling lots of evidence to support that when the documentary appeared I was told that Gerald Regan had informed my bosses the big bosses that's the CBC in the region. He would never appear again. As long as I was the host and in short order it was gone. Regan majority government in one thousand nine hundred seventy four but the liberals were already running out of steam as time went on I think as often happens with governments. He became more interested in staying in power than Kim. Any ambitions they were defeated in seventy eight on the back of high. Hi Power prices. But Regan wasn't done yet to nine thousand nine hundred. He ran for the federal liberals one and was made cabinet minister under Pierre Trudeau Regan. Getting lost his seat in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and then settled into a comfortable post political life as an elder statesman..

Good evening. I'm Steve Murphy. Former Scotia Premier Gerald Regan has been charged with sixteen sex related offenses including Rape Regan. Says he's not guilty. My reaction is one of anger. I am not guilty of these charges and I have no doubt whatsoever but that I would not be facing charges. These ancient allegations if I had not been in public epic light Gerald Regan was charged on March. Fifteenth nineteen ninety-five with seventeen counts of rape attempted rape indecent assault and forcible confinement. The charges were related to thirteen different women. One of them had been underage at the time. The news was shocking. To Nova Scotia's the Regan's were already one of the most well respected political families in the province at the time his daughter. Nancy Regan was an anchor in the same network from the broadcast that you're hearing from. She took the day off work to accompany her father. Gerald Regan arrived at the courthouse this morning accompanied by his wife until his daughters including Nancy. Regan posted ATV's ABC's live at five and his son. Jeff had followed in his father's footsteps elected to parliament just two years earlier. Son Jeff Halifax. MP was was in. Ottawa I have confidence in my father's innocence and we his family love him very much. The Regan's are an established of various tablist political critical family here in Nova Scotia lutely and they have been for decades. The idea that a sort of provincial politician could move on and these sort of heights is still a big deal for notions. I would say that. The view of the Regan's at least in among the older generation is they are a middle of the road political presence that represent both fiscal responsibility as well as the basics of. You know social concerns if you will. Stephen Kimber is a longtime Nova Scotian journalist. Who's written a book con Gerald Regan? And he's had his fair share of run INS with him. He was a tall guy a towered over me and I I think probably a fair number of people. He had a as somebody who has one. I think of as a ski slope knows he was you know he wasn't handsome. He certainly had presence and was forceful to understand the story of the Regan's yet to understand the strange world of Nova Scotia politics. Regan Regan was born into a politically active family in Windsor Nova Scotia in nineteen twenty eight. But then again every family in that part of Nova Scotia at the time was politically active steph rural Nova Scotia. During those days. I was pretty political. It was you were born one or the other which was conservative or liberal. You took it all all very seriously. You hung out at the local newspaper office on election night where they would post the Result says they came in so he was steeped in that kind of political life as he grew up. From an early age Gerald Regan would have witnessed the nitty gritty of the Nova Scotian political machines. The the world in which he came of age politically was one in which votes were by those rural areas for example on polling day the parties. He's had people who wanted around the constituency and they drove people to the polls. Made sure at least as much as you could that they voted the right way and then and went into the trunk of the car and bright out ROM or nylons or whatever it was that was the gift of the day to convince people to to make sure that people voted the the right way and that was standard operating procedure. Gerald's father Walter Regan was a longtime town councillor dettori stalwart. His uncle had been deputy mayor of Halifax and Jerry quickly said his is on politics to buy the eleventh grade. Gerald Regan was Student Council. President the thing that you have to understand about regan was that he was ambitious as as a politician mostly for the sake of being an ambitious politician. He wanted to succeed at politics. He was less somebody who had a great Ideological or philosophical officle interested in politics one day Gerald Regan met Angus MacDonald the longtime liberal premier of Nova Scotia. He even stopped to shake kyung Gerald's hand and from then on Jerry had one goal to climbed the political ladder all the way to the top.

The speaker yes. I'm perhaps I saw. You could explain to the House the House. What would be the appropriate rules in terms of recognizing people in the gallery? Let's say for example Mr Speaker a former premier of Nova. Let's go show where in the gallery today former premier Joel Regan. Would it be appropriate for the chair to recognize a farmer. Bring here in the gallery sitting next to Leblanc along with Prime Minister Trudeau.
