The Unexpected Story of a Man and His Bear, Winnipeg
"The toys from our childhood. Stay with us long after we stop playing with them as adults we may lose track of a beloved stuffed animal or a fun action figure but we keep the memories. We remember how safe they made us feel and darkened bedroom or how much fun we had zooming them around the house as if they were flying and yet no matter what we all grow up and leave childish things behind but thanks to one man's impulsive decision. we learned. We don't have to let the past slip away. Not only can we hold onto it but we can share it with the people we love and keep that joy alive for generations to come harry. Colbourn was born in birmingham england in eighteen eighty seven. When he was eighteen years old he moved to ontario canada where he studied to become a veterinarian surgeon upon receiving his degree he settled in winnipeg in manitoba but duty would eventually call. Harry joined the military when world war one became too great to ignore and he hopped a train to quebec for basic training. It was on his way to the camp when he encountered an odd sight. A hunter had killed a black bear and taken. It's cub to sell at a local trading post. Harry gave them twenty dollars and in exchange he took possession of the bear cub which he named winnipeg after the town where he'd been living. His plan was to raise winnipeg for a little while before releasing her back into the forest. Unfortunately harry's plans change very quickly. Winnipeg became a hit among other troops. They played with her and let her stay in the bunks where. She slept under harry's kat that she grew however winnipeg got too big to live indoors and was relegated to outside like a kind of watch bear for the soldiers. The more time they spend together the harder it became for harry to let go. He in winnipeg had grown close. So close that. When he was ordered to go back to england to fight on the western front he refused to release the bear back into the wild he instead snuck her into the ship with the other troops together. They traveled to the second canadian. Infantry brigade camp near stonehenge in england. Harry let her roam free for a while they were there. She enjoyed playing on the large stones but he soon understood that he would have to give her up. There was just no way for winnipeg to go all the way with him to the front

"It's been really good you'll watching the starter that florida tampa game over. Vegas was a little subdued because there were no goals it was still a great luck and plus i love everything. Vegas does to put on the show but watching those fans in florida going bananas. During that game i sat there and said i am so jealous one of the two things that made me jealous this weekend. Watching mike altieri the longtime media leader of the los angeles kings seeing that he had two holes in one during a gulf round on saturday. That made me really jealous.

"All right so the last one that we are talking about that is closing out. The first semi-final comes from malta. It is destiny's jamarcus destiny one junior vision from alta in twenty fifteen. And she's been working at it since then as she competed on. Britain's got talent of few years after junior vision and went on to win the second season of malta's factor in twenty twenty which is the pathway being. Malta's artists of eurovision once contest was cancelled. She was reselected internally for twenty twenty one. This particular song was the last one to debut during selection season and it is currently one of the favorites to win the contest. Malta has not yet won eurovision the finished in second place in two thousand two and two thousand five. It would be a pretty big deal if they're able to close this even if it doesn't happen destiny just signed a worldwide record. Deal with sony. So she'll be okay justin. What were your thoughts on this track. First of all. I was surprised. Multi even had an x factor because that is a tiny country. I'm glad that they do because it's a pretty good song looking to lyrics again. I think it is a female empowerment track. But it's one of those things where it's like yes queen get it. You don't need no man that sort of thing and i'm all for that. That's kind of my vibe. Twenty four seven any way you know just being like yes. Yes girl be walking on the street and i want to hear that from people. That's the kind of song that i want to listen to my airpods. Walking down the street as people try to bother me and i'm just like no thank you. I'm too powerful for. This is a little cliche in that way. Though there's a lot of size that now in the ether and i think there is the risk of course of it being a caricature of genre of song. It almost got there. But i don't think it fully went pass up line. I watched the video and one of my favorite comments in the video from this one person who said how many hair cells would you like me destiny replied with yes only changes changes and i'm just like yes. I wanna see all the sides. Honey show me everything you got it but by saying that it's become clear that they're trying to pack in as much visuals as possible to attract people towards it so i think it's doing a lot and it's almost too much but it's a fun song so i don't think we need to necessarily take that seriously i liked. It was fine. I would pretend to be naomi campbell on the streets of winnipeg where there's nothing happening eating a donut of big oil. Maybe and just living my best life. I feel like when we first talked about this. I didn't have a whole lot of thoughts other than i like it a lot. I'm not sure that. I have any further advanced thoughts. It's a real good song. I think is my favorite out of the semifinal. It is one of the favorites for reason. It's very strongly written two things that had come to mind since we chatted about this. We had talked about how last year the song that was chosen for. Destiny didn't feel like it fit her as a person i remember discussing. It is feeling like martha wash song. My initial reaction to this one last time we chatted about it was that this felt like a eurasian version of lonzo and in both cases. I think that's just a dearth of comparison factors for black female performers. One thing that a friend brought up that. I had not thought about that. I don't think is necessarily to the detriment of the song but as someone who knows a lot about the last decade of eurovision if lyrically and mattingly this is too similar to toy it's in the same space and one of the things that popped up. Is that dna from sweden. Apparently did not make mel fest with the song and so it got scooped up by destiny's team. It does feel like a swedish take on what toy was doing toyko very aggressive in its approach to its subject matter and this feels lighter it was something that had popped up that i found very interesting to think about. Yeah it does feel very familiar number of ways. The toy comparison didn't strike me until you mentioned it. It's kind of reminding me of songs that rupaul's drag race contestants. Oh it's a lip sing song. Honey eighth yeah. It's definitely a lip sync song but also sort of tracks that they release after they are contestants on the show but a good quality one. This one doesn't feel as disposable. Some of those tracks can be. It's making me wonder if maybe that is part of the strategy the ven diagram of drag race fans in your vision fans is probably a circle or very close to so i can understand if that is somewhat intentional on its heart but yeah i don't know if i if i have much more to say about the song that hasn't already been covered does a really good entry for malta. I think it is a great song for destiny at so much better than last year's by only concern is the end of the song where it just kind of peters out. There's the last horn break. And i don't know how that's going to be staged in a compelling memorable way and hoping that they're able to do something that kind of continues the momentum from the build going into the last chorus. There are songs that we've discussed today. Where i can't see the triumphant final performance. This accurate wins. I can absolutely triumphant file. Performance of jamaica's exuberant the vocal lines. All over the place because they're trying to not completely burst into tears. The video itself was the kind of thing that i think stefan from. Snl would love it. Has everything it had an uncomfortable mail at the beginning. It had a guy with the mustache tights and high heels it had waterfalls. It had the mx bikes a gigantic bow. Banner falling from behind her. It had ten hairstyle changes. It was a feast. And i am full and say that i'm ready for bed. Excellent well on that note. We can start wrapping things up.

"Let's talk about ukraine. Go and 'em go is an electro folklore band that has white voice elements that formed in two thousand twelve. They wanted beer. Ukraine selection in twenty twenty giving them a ticket to rotterdam vid beer last year had an unofficial mandate to send the most ukrainian entry possible and go reselected internally for twenty twenty. One shoe was selected by an internal jury with overwhelming support. The original version is roughly four minutes so they needed to be revamped to fit. The requirements of three minutes or less ukraine has a perfect record in and mostly one in two sixteen and previously won in two thousand five so they have never missed the grand final mike. Let's switch it up. How do you feel about this song. You know how. I feel about ukraine. I love it how you feel about ukraine. It's all good job. Justin may not know how. I feel about ukraine crane. Stan sounds like do stand justin. You've heard me talk about iceland. Yes yes quite. A bit and is to iceland as mike is to ukraine s. Well you should come to a huge ukrainian population here. I really yeah. We do enjoy the. I don't know why specifically that but there's some sort of history there oh interesting. I wonder if when it takes one of their sister cities because chicago is a sister. City of keiv is getting off track up but when the original version of shem dropped i was one hundred percent on board with it. I want to go to this rave so bad and they did the revamp and my immediate reaction is like oh they just completely redid the song it's not as sparse as the original version. I liked it. But i felt very resistant to it. But the more that i've sat with this saw It is so good and such a brilliant revamp strategy. I think what may have happened. Was the original version. Was going to depend on there. Being an audience up against a stage completely rocking out and dancing to the various breakdowns. That happen in the original track but then they decided that third wasn't going to be a standing audience. I think that this revamp is taking advantage of factors like okay. There's not going to be like those audience shots of people rocking out to this. We need to do something to fill up that space. Otherwise it's just going to look really weird and really empty for three minutes. I think the lyrical density is doing a good job of showcasing the vocals and filling out the space that otherwise would have been all the dancing. You're still going to get that rocking out components. It's just probably gonna be happening people's living rooms rather than in the arena. We'll get shots of people in the green room rocking out. But i am so looking forward to this performance and i think this is fantastic track. At first i wasn't sure about it but for some reason i felt that that i liked it. Then i watched the video of the original track and it was like my god. Wow i wasn't sure about that but it it still appealed to me in some way and then i watched the video for the eurovision. I and i am fully on board now. I think it took a while for me to get there because it is a little strange to me but it is a really good song the concepts great. It's this mad max. Cult vibe happening. I don't wanna insult and say it would also be a good track for the fast and furious head. Just not but it's a great song. The the vocals are fantastic. Her breath control must be amazing and the lyrics when translated into english. I was like oh. I did not expect this to be the subject of it. It's it's very much about springtime and stuff like that. I think there's some metaphor about the end of the pandemic coming out of that. And whatever but the way that they weaved into the metaphor with really good. The video was good. I felt bad for the guy the flute who was a standing awkwardly on the stage. He was trying to look tough. In his post apocalyptic fashion but then he pulls out the flute. And i was just like. Oh it's hard to look tough with the food you know but it added to the song. I'm more interested now in ukrainian folk dance music. It's a good track. They nailed the the traditional ukrainian brief their song from last year so avai also derived from ukrainian folk music. This year. it's a song about the harvest. I also fully agree the weird turn. Noble mad max. Is that going on a big fan of that. The fashion in your vision. I was with her centipede going across her face. I don't know what the point of that was sure. We all wear those now like both of you. I liked the original version a lot. Mike you were very into it. I was very into it. Because i realized that it had real history vibes in terms of aesthetic in terms of mixture of Tack no rave music with other genres. And then i was weirdly resistant to the new because they're filling it up with so many lyrics like it almost feels like the opposite problem of by john. Oh no now. There are too many words. I have both versions of the song on the playlist. Listen to a lot. And i find myself expecting the song to start earlier with the more lyric versions. Apparently my brain his flipped the switch to that version being the normal version. We've all been talking about the fact that it took us a minute. And i'm not sure that everybody who's coming in only to the semifinal is going to have enough time to go. Oh this is cool and have it grew on them and get catchy. I have been watching various friends who watch the eurovision movie last year. Who are starting to pay attention to this. Go through the full playlist and come to ukraine and be like i respect what they're doing but also the whole white voice element poland a couple years ago sent tuleya to he does the same sort of white voice thing. It's also a polish music tradition and they just narrowly missed the final. So i'm wondering if you could encounter similar issues. I'm hoping i think it's a very strong song. I think they can stage it very well. I think that is a fair concern about this one needing to take some time so somebody on the night might not be immediately receptive to it. But it's so dancy. I cannot help but get pumped by it. I'm very confident in how ukraine is going to stay. Cashew curry knows how to do stagering. I think that was one of the issues with to liaise performance. I i didn't think was stage particularly well. Also with the way that the overall semi-final is structured. This makes a very nice book end with discotheque from lithuania. Even though there is one more song after this one this is a good period at the end of the first semi final. Before we get into the epilogue. I will say it's also the only saw remember out of the five this when i completely remember because it's so distinct i remember parts of the other songs but not in the same way where i can remember everything about this one so i think there's some staying power to it but it might not be enough time between when it's performed and judge for sure. I agree with both points there. It makes it through the final. I definitely think it leaves mark. And i think if you see it on tuesday. You're gonna remember it for saturday also in this set. It's the only one. That's not in english or predominantly english. So that may also help it. Stand out true. Go more like go off. Am.

"Anward to azerbaijan. They are represented this year by effendi with her song. Mata hari fendi finished third place. An zaeri idle and in azerbaijan's twenty fourteen selection process and on the voice of azerbaijan and in kazakhstan silk way stars so third-place seems to be very comfortable for her. She was internally selected last year to a saying cleopatra and reselected this year the same creative team behind cleopatra. Sorry he pronouncing that wrong. Cleopatra creative team behind that track is behind. This year's track as rashawn has a near perfect record for getting to the grand final. They've only missed it once and that was in twenty eighteen. They also won the contest in twenty eleven. And let's start with you. What you think of mata hari. I feel like i said some very mean things about the song. Last time in my opinion has not improved. They've had time to do math. It's real bad last time we talked about this song. I had jokingly said that it's largely just the syllable so i sat down. And how many syllables are there in this song. And how many of them are ma. A full third of the song which i think speaks to the fact that there's not a lot of song here. It's a series of dance. Breaks the last forty seconds of the song is one final mata hari and then it turns into the power rangers guitar and that can be fine for pop songs bill. It's weirdly threadbare and durant. Just what you think about this one. I do agree with ben. it was fine. I do enjoy the history of the figure out a hurry. So there was a bit of an expectation. There they would be like this towel. Spi type thing. I think that's what they were going with. Of course but i watch a video ben. You said it was basically a full of dance breaks which it was but effendi does not know how to dance. I watched her stand in the middle of the four dancers. That were doing all the work to her defense. Effendi did do some arm fee. Didn't move lower-half it reminded me of dual-purpose dancing which has improved over time. But there's that one mean of just being terrible dancer. It did not do it for me. If she wanted to embody much hari it did not do the trick. She looked great outfit. Worked or heard. Lower-half was not matching. What was happening in the upper half and it ruined the song for me. Honestly the lack of energy in her performance. I think that's very fair critique slash prediction of. What's going to happen. And after the contest was cancelled last year there was a video that went out of affendy performing cleopatra. Live live in quotation marks. Pretty sure she was listening. But that's not important. It was a really dull performance. She had two dancers but they weren't really super engaged in the performance and there wasn't elaborate choreography or anything partly because there were probably some restrictions in place of how close people could get to one another. It's cylinder why this performance was even happening but still that was the only visual representation that we had of the song as performance. She wasn't dancing then either. I don't expect to see her dancing in rotterdam or it's going to be very basic because she's probably not trained to be a dancer that's fine but if you're going to be doing something that is a dance track that is focusing more on the dance than the song get a different artists. Do not understand this selection particularly if they're just trying to recapture the magic of last year. Which i have a feeling it may have flopped or underperformed at least in quotation marks. The magic of last year. I was seeing the tweets. We were making a lot of fuss about cleopatra But i'm not sure that would have extended to the final live performance for all of the underwhelming this that we are expecting from the staging. I also expect azerbaijan to throw a lot of money at it. We are going to be shooting effendi from above the waist. But what's going on behind her is going to be spectacular or they may just give her a robot legs. They had that weird robot thing with their last performance. So can we make someone appear to be a better dancer. Through in camera effects it could be endless. Holograms oh man okay. Now i'm getting really depressed. By the intent of the song for it to be essential attract people that might be interested in her and it was just too stiff and did not bring to the sense of warmth that it should have and by worth i mean hotness and there was none of that it was cold and stiff frozen. There is a whole thing that we never got to discuss about other by john's entry last year of other by john says gay rights. Do they live last year in particular. Why the question. Mark i think. Cleopatra the song covered more historically than mata hari. The song attempts to cover a cleopatra was clean like me just like me. I just like me straight or gay or inbetween inbetween. Yeah in between. I definitely heard that in the tone of nursery rhyme. I was like cleopatra just like me just like me. Just like me straight or gay or inbetween cleo pat. Here's that same kind of weird nursery. Rhyme sense about not hari to honestly with mantra hari. I just thought of lady gaga but on a good way what does that poker face that part of the chorus up a poker yeah. It's just that to me. It's the same mama. Mama there's a lot of on originality happening in this first semi-final coming to realize two thousand ten lady gaga. Yes let's do it. Twenty ten lady gaga with dual the dancing perfect.

"Let's get started with. Israel's entry from eden aline. Her song is called set me. Free eden is of ethiopian jewish descent as she first came on the scene a back in two thousand eighteen when she won x factor israel and got her ticket to eurovision when she won israel's version of rising star in two thousand and twenty. Of course your vision got cancelled but she was reselected just a few days after that cancellation for the twenty twenty one contest. It's been kind of a bumpy road. In terms of song selection israel wanted to have a robust selection process but ended up having to convert into a fully online format. Nine demos of songs were put up for public votes and three of those songs went onto get recorded by the winner of that contest was set me free. The song has gone through another revamp making this the third version of set me free. That has been set free justin. What were initial thoughts on this track. Okay i listened to it on. Its own i before. I watched the video and without the video it it it was a bop. I the kids still say bob. I don't know. I don't care. I'm going to still say it regardless of the kids. We still say okay excellent. It was a good sign. I think the set of songs have some similarities to them and they all seem to have the same sort of dancy. Are slightly retro type vibe happening. It was up my wheelhouse because right now. I'm going through that sort of phase musically. I quite enjoyed the video. Though i didn't understand the narrative the start of the video was just like oh there are. These people passed out in a restaurant and they're all very well dressed and have full face of makeup and then all of a sudden you didn't gets up starts singing and everyone wakes up. But they don't look like they just came out of a long sleeper. Whatever did not understand how they were just like. Oh yes this is. The song i get to go get ready in the morning or whatever and i was just like yes either go off sis but at the same time it's a little hammy and i was like whatever it's a good song is just i didn't understand the music video for but do we need to understand it. I don't think so. The narrative of it was forced. But who am. I trying to be adding art critiques to a music video. I mean i guess we could. I don't know it was just a lot. It is part of the promotion of the song especially since we don't have as many opportunities for live performance. That's true. I've been on the full ride with this song from the demo when those leaked i i thought that version two was fine it. I did not understand why everybody was like this is disappointing. We're going to do terrible because it was fine. They've definitely added some extra mustard on diversion. Three they changed the chorus. They've moved the. I'm gonna make it on my own into its little post chorus thing. It feels like you're listening to the mix of the song that they would play during the parade of nations. If they were to win this year they would absolutely be looping. I'ma make it on my own part over and over all like each walks down. will somebody else. Malta by john. I was in a weird area at wormhole this week Which is not new but for whatever reason found this old footage of miss universe pageant from two thousand eight very similar to the of nations. You have whatever song is the head of the moment being played in a weird extended. Eleven minute version. Here's the first part of the song. Here's ten ladies and swimsuits the middle of the song. Here's ted more ladies in swimsuits and in two thousand eight rbis was then new then hot than hitting the top of the hot one hundred lady gaga like before a four all of the conceptual bits. Yeah it's a real trip okay. It's a real highly recommend going back and watching it. That's what this version of the song feels like but it also feels like they're doing some duleep things with the production the whole future nostalgia bet that we discussed with ned last week. Definitely feels play here. The whole whistle tone bit at the end. That's very arianna guerande. Can we talk about the whistle tone. Oh my god. I don't think that it needs it. I don't like whistle notes just as a blanket rule. It's that part of the brain that i want to say nails on a chalkboard. I think she's executing it the way one would should execute it but it triggers buzzer in my brain. This was like no thank you. I would do it everywhere. If if i had the ability to pull off a whistle tone catching the bus. I'll be running for it. I'll like. Oh i if you could do it. I just put it in just because it's impressive to me. If i wanted like call for a gentleman across the street and catches attention whistle tone absolutely it. it's impressive. I don't feel like it's adding anything to the song weirdly. It doesn't make sense with the rest of the story of the song. The song is about the frustration of the last year. And just like. I just wanna get back to doing my thing. The use of the whistle note in the song seems much more sela pretoria like it's not expressing frustration. It's just being like. Hey look at me. I can do this thing and it seems like it's trying to go for style points the other doing all sorts of vocal. Showcasing thing yeah of the thirty nine entries this year. This is the one that i'm most worried about. I loved edens entry last year. She exudes star energy. And this is feeling like they're just fussing with it and fussing with it and overdoing the production if they are able to stop where they are right now and not touch it anymore. I think they'll be okay. But i'm worried that they're just going to keep trying to work towards this perfectionism with the song and the performance it could be a case of what happened with the netherlands and tree in two thousand fifteen where they're just like. Oh people are commenting on. The dress will as change her dress now. She's wearing something different. Let's move the cameras are going to be. And then he got to the actual performance of that song. You could see entrenches is. She doesn't know where she supposed to be because they've changed everything every five minutes. I really don't want them to do that to eat it. I think the song can get through but it's really riding on the edge right now. I think that version to have solid chances of getting through. Especially now that we know the full range of the first semifinal. But i agree with you that they're going to just keep fussing with this and this and fussing with this because they keep being overly reactive to the public to the point where if there is any coverage of oh i don't like what they're doing at the that's gonna get change in an instant they're gonna ship this to death and then complain when it doesn't go through do not give her a perm between the last rehearsal and the actual performance do not do not go for that. I'd like that. They are being receptive to the public in terms of the broader sense of if a song is working or not but these finer details at obsessing on is cause for concern. Really want to do well. I was initially lukewarm because this was the second song that was released of all of them. And now i'm like. This is a solid entry.

"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.

Could a Jack Eichel Trade Land Him With the Boston Bruins?
"You want to make a safe bet how about you bet every year around this point of the Season where Jack eichel is unhappy with the situation in Buffalo there every year. It's the annual Jack. Eichel is sick of Buffalo story, but probably won't actually get traded. Maybe this is finally the years but Buffalo continues to lose which I don't know why this is a surprise to him at least like just cuz my God what Taylor home exactly like to be I don't know maybe I guess when you're in that moment, you know when you're on that team you think wow, we just got so much better. But in reality you just got a better scoring Winger on one line. Like it's this isn't the NBA where like you acquire a player of Taylor Hall is Cal log. The NBA and it's like why we are a much better team in hockey. It is four lines and you obviously one score is not going to transform whole team. So Jack eichel is reportedly not super pleased with the losing an awful. Oh, I don't blame him that miss that situation looks miserable. So every time this happens the Jack eichel to the Boston Bruins rumors always like to get straightened up baby back wheels turning on that and I I am so here so here for the even though this like will never happen. There's a less than 2% chance. I'll give it a little chance. But but less than 2% chance this ever could actually happen equal to the Bruins, but you you astutely tweeted out Wednesday morning. Give me your best trade package for Jack eichel Chicago which prompted people to give off their best trade packages. Ron Jackson office a lot of compelling offers. I mean hitmon law, this is my favorite go figure Boston gets or Buffalo gets the Evan marinoff skier F boss gets Jacqueline Connor McDavid, and I said, I think the Prof gets more than just McDavid Michael. I think you might get puter off in there too. Well, here's the thing too. I mean Buffalo is in such disorder and disarray that you need not stabilizing presence there someone that's going to bring Authority and stop the shenanigans. So who better than that having that or not graph to correct? What's been going wrong in Buffalo for decades now, you gotta lay down long. That's what he's going to do. Right right down right now. It's a it's a character thing more than talent and that's the team needs so I continually yeah exactly they need a leader. But so that was a great one quart low lands a little does. He know that Evan and Connor are package deal. So that's a no deal in my books. That's fair. That's that's that's a good point. That's always going to send me the Buffalo wage. Thanks, Buffalo Winnipeg or Edmonton. I'm out on

I don't know how you're going to avoid it or why you would want to avoid it. You don't get a better brady kachuck you get brady. But now you've less cap space can haul and said earlier this year they were doing. I read some article. And he's like in the end cap space or cap winds every time. But i don't think they've got mad wh- more. Do you want from from a young player. He's twenty one years old. Are you've got a good story involving the brothers right matthew and brady because you mentioned keith in the similarities that you see in in brady's game but whether they're playing against one another playing against anyone else it doesn't matter.

Everybody has the authority to call. Ray ferraro we know you played for the hartford whalers at one time you call me. I am almost one hundred percent. Certain that joel quenneville came up.

"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 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..
Jarmo Kekalainen on the Dubois-Laine Deal
"Always good when a major newsmaker joins the podcast. He is yarmouk kick elaine general manager of the columbus. Blue jackets Jahmil thanks so much for doing this. And i'm always curious about how deals come together. And maybe more specifically when deals and you know we know that there are other teams out. There obviously interested in pierre. Luke dubois in your mind. When was this trade over. Like at what point did you say. Okay i'm done. He's going to winnipeg jets by you. Gotta do your due diligence around the league and see what the interest level is and what type of options we have available. And we did that. We recommend order and you might make have to make a couple rounds a call system. Make sure that everybody who's interested. Got their opportunity to give their best shot and we did that as well. So it took a little while but You know we came to the conclusion there. After the last game that dubois played that we wanna do this sooner rather than later so we were pretty busy on friday working on that than saturday morning. We we were ready. And and now. We have patrick line and ross lubbock here. One thing that became clear to us on the outside. Is that you and kevin chevrolet off had discussed this for awhile that you kind of both knew that if you wanted to do this there was going to be the opportunity to do it. I'm curious caramel. How'd you guys known that you were each other's potential trade partners. If you needed to be we we had a good dialogue for a while and this is probably the best match right from the start. But as i said we had to do our diligence. And make sure that we've done our homework on every opportunity that might be out there and after we'd done that we return to talks with winnipeg several times and and wanted to make sure that all parts of the trade work for us as far as cap goes cash involved there other parts of the deal that we had to iron out once. We actually does hurdles. We were ready to pull the trigger on both sides. You describe what. It was like thursday night for us. I know what a incredibly competitive person. You are a lot of things. What was it like watching that. And can you talk about your discussions after the game that night. Internally internal talks always internal talks for me and a very serious about that but you know there are certain values that We have within our organization within our team in our locker room and we have a very demanding head coach who never compromised. Those values would never want him to compromise those values and i support him honor percent when he he does his coach in enforcing those values and it came to a point. Where were that wasn't a level of commitment to those values that was given by fearless dubois and that's why he was bent and i support the coach hundred percent on on that decision. Like i said after that. I think there's a little more urgency on our part to get this done and we're happy to move on with the two players that we like even if the trade hadn't occurred on saturday morning to the organization had pure luke dubois played his last game with the blue jackets. And what. I'm sort of getting at was anyway that he would have played saturday afternoon. No no you wasn't gonna play saturday but after that. It's the coach's decision on on all. He wants to handle the player. And there's no need to get into that but There's always a second chances and opportunities to redeem yourself as a player if you make a mistake or don't live up to the values that we hold strong ear but you have to show through your hard work in practice and and how you conduct your business in the locker room and within the team and I'm sure then. Our coach will always give him every player a second chance or an opportunity to show that. He's ready to live

Home Buyer Tips For December
"A december first when we're talking about sales records. We're talking about what we sold. During the month of november previous year at this time period so During the month of november twenty nineteen we sold a total of three hundred fifty one houses. Compare that to six hundred thirty three this year so sales again once again our way up compared to twenty nineteen most expensive house this month. So for one point seven million in headingley and in fact during the month of november we sold ten houses at a million dollars or more. So let's go into in a little bit more detail again. December i twenty twenty last year. At this time we had fourteen hundred and twenty houses available this month. We have seven hundred fifty. Four virtually has many houses on the market as there was last year but sales are almost twice as much. So you can see. This is not a sustainable situation buyers far outpaced the listings. Seven hundred and fifty four is down a little bit from the previous month yet when we had nine hundred fifty five houses breaking it down across price ranges entry level houses under two hundred fifty thousand last year. We had four hundred ten district. We've got two hundred twenty seven eight range to fifty to five hundred thousand last year. We had nearly seven hundred on the market right now. We have three hundred six and luxury homes. Three hundred fifty one last year december first today. Two hundred twenty. One incidentally starting in january twenty twenty one. I'll be doing something a little different. I will be giving a separate luxury housing market report. That's all houses over. Five hundred thousand in manitoba got the luxury home marketing institute classifies anything over five hundred thousand as a luxury home. So i'll be delving a little deeper into the details in this price range. Okay now let's take a closer look at the sold numbers during the month of november entry level. Last year we sold one hundred five this year. Hundred and forty two mid range prowse's last year. During the month of november. We sold two hundred eight this year. Three hundred and fourteen and even luxury homes last year result. Thirty eight this month. The during november we sold seventy seven. That's basically twice as many as year. Same time so we can see that the number of available listings are about half and sales are about double. How do we put that on paper. Does it look in graph form. That's when we come up with a to called days of inventory. This basically explains it. There are no more listings. Come into market today at the current pace of sale. How long would it take us to sell everything. That's out there here. The lower the number the hotter the market entry level houses under two hundred fifty thousand last year. It would have taken us one hundred seventeen days to sell everything that's out there. This month is just forty. Eight days super hot. But it's even hotter in the mid range prices two hundred and fifty to five hundred thousand dollars. There was a house by the way last week. A twelve hundred foot bungalow in river heights listed at four hundred was four hundred thirty thousand sold for five hundred thousand dollars. This is a seventy year old house. It's been redone done up to the nines. Look really great but a half million dollar price tag so in that price range. Last year we had one hundred days of inventory this month. Twenty nine so in other words if nobody else listed their house in that price range going forward it wouldn't even take us a month to run out of everything that's out there and now luxury homes there too much hotter market than normal last year. Two hundred seventy seven days to sell everything. That's the level of inventory this month eighty six days. That's probably the hottest that i've seen it. Not price range now. the one step
Buying a home when 'New to Canada'
"Know funny. Things happened mike. And i had actually planned this episode several weeks back to discuss the options for new to canada homebuyers so it was completely fortuitous that i received a voicemail from a potential future home buyer in england. This gentleman apparently wants to move to canada in about a year from now. And he's got he's got questions about options for getting mortgages and what. The costs are involved in buying a house. Here's his voice. Mail a by a heavier well. I may cost list from the uk. My life is winning. Pick and we're looking to move back to winnipeg with young kids in the year or so. My question is this aside from the usual down payment taxes. Is there anything else you think. We may need to consider when volume winnipeg when moving from abroad particularly in relation to mortgages and credit otherwise. Thanks during about costs. A nice place to stay in touch with what's happening will the best now. First of all let me say. I really love getting feedback like that. It tells me that there's actually people listening and it's making a difference that's that's really good Very simple way for you to leave me a voicemail like this by simply going to my podcast website page which is at bono's dot homes slash podcast or if you to this episode in particular bono's dot homes slash one four two everytime you go to my site. A little microphone will appear at the bottom of your screen. Just click it. Leave me voice mail. The will be required to leave an email address. And i will get back in touch with you. I will play. Or i may. I probably will play your voicemail. But i take your name out to keep it private love to hear from you but for now let's call. Mike conceal yes to say. Hey mike it's bowl kaufman. How you doing today. Hey do well how about yourself. Excellent excellent so you heard essentially that question from that gentleman in england. Who's thinking of moving to winnipeg correct and so in answered his question. The first question is how much down payment do you have. He's asking determine what type of credit information. We need for example. If you have a twenty five percent down payment and you've been in canada for three years or less it doesn't matter what your income or immigration status we can get you a mortgage at a positive rate. That kind of threw me there. It's three years or less correct. Three years left. So it's if you've been in canada for less than three years you're good to go with twenty five percent down that's correct. Yes and then you can students. You don't have to have employment. You don't even have credit. That's the requirement cool so as we go down from there so the next level down would be. Let's say a ten percent down so if you have a ten percent down payment you'll have been at your job and in canada or three months and you need to show letter your bank saying that you have a history of making pates. The next step down there will be five percent down payments if you have a five percent down payment cata typically for twelve months so for one year and have a letter from your landlord. Show you pay your rent on time. So those are the sort of the with the descending amounts of down payment. What's required to get a mortgage cara okay. What about a job at five percent down you here for a year. You still have to do a qualifying employment right correct. Yes you you still have to have a job off of probation. Most lenders have a one two three month. Probationary period's okay. So let's go back. That i one really. If you're in the country even a student a refugee anybody was in the country for less than three years can buy a house. And i understand that you just recently did a mortgage for somebody told me about that cracked and so we helped a couple where there was two brothers encounter for ten years and they just brought their parents over from asia and their parents want to buy a house will they brought over money with them so the parents did not have a job did not have any income in canada but because they just came here and they had a twenty five percent down payment they're able to buy a nice house coaster kids. Well okay that's that's awesome. That's good and the rate of those people was. They got a two point. One four percent on a five year fixed.

We have four hundred ninety seven which is virtually the same amount as available as last month however last year.

These are homes listed over half a million dollars right now. We have two hundred ninety eight available last month. We had three hundred and thirty two and last year. Same time we had three ninety nine so almost four hundred that is a twenty five percent drop in available listings over last year.

Cree author David A. Robertson on writing everything from graphic novels to a memoir
"I want to go to my trap line one last time he says. I cannot breathe. I know he hasn't been to his trap line for almost seven decades. We've been on a journey as father and son for thirty years, and for the first time, it feels like we've found our destination. And I think maybe we've been headed there all this time. Whatever choose exists between us. The end of our journeys in front of us. That's David Robertson reading from Blackwater, family legacy and blood memory. One of three books he has coming out this fall. To say, he's prolific is a bit of an understatement. The cree writer based in Winnipeg started writing in two thousand and nine and has already published more than twenty titles from the Governor General Award Winning Picture Book when we were alone to his graphic novel series the reckoner to his first novel, the evolution of Alice published in two thousand fourteen it seems like he can write in any genre for any age group. David Robertson is my guest on the show today. Thanks so much for being here, David All. Thanks for having me. It's a pleasure. So this month you published your most personal book to date a memoir called Blackwater family legacy and blood memory, which we just heard a bit from. And it chronicles the story of Your Dad's returned to the family trap line Norway House creed nation in northern. Manitoba. So first off most people wait until they're a lot older to write a memoir So why did you want to write now? Yeah. That's a great question and there's there's probably a bunch that goes into that answer. One of them is that you know I've been talking about my dad and I for the last eleven years ever since I was a published writer I found that when I was public speaking all of my talk somehow came back to my father and I and and he's played such a big role in. My own development my understanding of you know who I am as cree person. There's one time I was giving this lecture at University of Manitoba couple years ago where I was the same thing talking about my life in my father and our relationship, and then a professor came up to me after and said, you really have to write this down and so. Money as a writer I'd never thought about writing actually my own story and that really kind of jog something me were. I decided that that was something I. needed to do. The other part of it is that you know my father at the time was declining I mean he was still himself and he was still my dad but he we knew that our time with him a short it was getting shorter and I really wanted to start working on this because it was something I always wanted to do I wanted. To document his life and and our relationship the teachings he gave me for myself and for my family and so all of this kind of came together and made me feel this agency to write the story now, and certainly when we went to the trap line together two years ago, it felt like the framing for the story had happened because I think it was where we were journeying to. All these years together. That's that's where we were going to and so when we got there, it felt like the right time to document everything that had happened between us and in our own lives and teams like such a special trip to be able to go on. Yeah I mean it was I I. Don't know if I could even put it into words. I. Tried my best in the book but it was blackberries in the title of the book and I really did feel that blood member was something that played a big role into why Blackwater why this trap line my dad grew up on felt home to me as soon as I stepped off the boat onto the land. I just felt like I'd come home and I, know that watching dad, you know amble up the inclined towards this big boulder in the middle of this clearing I know he felt like he was home to it was incredibly emotional intensity emotional moment for us and it turned out that it was the only time it could have happened because you know dad passed away just this past December and it made me even more grateful for spending that time with him and being able to write. About that experience through his words in my own and did you learn anything you know anything about yourself while writing a memoir I know that you know when you when you go into material like this, you sort of have to dig back in sort of excavate your own life and sort of reexamine things maybe in a new perspective did you learn anything about yourself? Yeah. I think anytime you revisit your past and learn more about the people who came before you. You're inevitably going to learn more about who you. Are you know I've always said and I've learned from my dad, the process of you know understanding ourselves and who we are that journey starts well, before we were born starts with understanding who came before you and know certainly in this book, it talks about my grandmother and my dad and their lives before I was born and my dad's after I was born and all of that plays into forming a sense of identity. It helps to you to understand more about yourself and there's things in even researching this book that. I learned that kind of. Forced me to re contextualize my life in my identity. No. When I was a kid I, always believed that my parents drew grew up intentionally raising me to be non indigenous to protect me from. You know what they felt would have experienced growing up in the city in. Winnipeg. As a cre- kid and in the process of researching this book and a lot of that research was just sitting down with my dad spending hours with him talking he said that's not true. I. I never wanted to tell you what it meant to be original. But I never told you that I didn't want you to be my goal was to model that for you. But to give you the tools that you need to figure out for yourself and one of the things that always sticks with me as you said, how to teach you how to be crea- you are cre-. So nothing I can say can make you more or less cre-. Your journey is defined what that means. For Self and his role was to kind of guide me in a way to that understanding and I think he did that.

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?
"You can say one thing for the current crisis. It's given us a chance to try a lot of things that we might never have had the will to do otherwise I amongst those just giving people money okay not everyone but millions and millions of people in Canada and not forever but at least for a few months and this isn't a new idea. It's been around in some form or another for decades. You probably know it as universal basic income and you might associate it with the most progressive voices come the liberal side of the spectrum and you may also associate the opposition to it with complaints of lazy people want free cash instead of working but despite having a long history as a potential way to ease poverty and improve health. This has never been tried on a large scale or for a long time. So the people arguing on either side of it have never had enough evidence to prove their point. So it's been a political football until like with so many things. These days along came the virus and now getting money to people who need it quickly is absolutely essential governments around the world even the most conservative of them have done that and those who support or oppose that kind of policy have mostly agreed on the need for it. It's what happens next. And what we learned from that will determine if we finally give a universal basic income. A real shot. So we'll explain history of the policy small tests that we've seen on it be political behind it and whether or not it will stick around when we get out of this current mass. And we'll do that as soon as Claire gives the details on this current mess cargill is dealing with the outbreak at one of its meat processing plants. This one isn't Schambori Quebec southeast of Montreal. Sixty four workers have tested positive. There cargill had another outbreak a few weeks ago at a beef packing plant in high river. Alberta in that outbreak more than nine hundred workers tested positive. It reopened last week after a two-week shutdown also in Quebec schools in the western part of the province are set to reopen today but attendance is optional. Desks will be spaced apart. And there can be no more than fifteen kids in a classroom at a time. Ontario reported the lowest number of cases of Cova nineteen for the province on Sunday since March. Two hundred ninety four new cases. And this comes. The province reopens Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas. Although camping is still not allowed and things like beaches playgrounds and public washrooms are still off limits. And lastly schedule and is suspending the sale of alcohol in the Northern Community of La Lush to help control the spread of cove in nineteen. The alcohol store will be closed for two weeks. To prevent people from gathering. There will be support for those at risk of alcohol withdrawal as of Sunday evening. Sixty eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight cases of covert nineteen in Canada with four thousand nine hundred and seventy deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Max. Faucet is a writer and a reporter for many publications including on this project for the Walrus. Hey Max he joined our. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is how everybody should hopefully answer that question. These days you start by defining What is a universal basic income Broad is that term. And what does it mean? Sure so I mean you know this is an idea that's been around for some time now and and there can be competing definitions and I suspect. We'll get into that in a second but the one that I adhere to the one that you know certainly I informed Andrew Yang's campaign in the United States and that has been informing most of the conversation about UBA. Right now is It has three conditions it's automatic. It's unconditional in its non-withdrawal. So basically that means it comes every month doesn't matter who you are you get it. You could be making a lot of money or a little money and you get it. And then it's non withdraw so It's not means tested. So it doesn't get clawed back you know as you as you make more money you know. There's much conversation on you know econ twitter about various amendments and adjustments to that formula. But I think that's a good way to think about it. Can you give me a little history of it? You mentioned it's been around for a long time Has it been tried for real anywhere where to come from that? Depends on your definition of for real right. I think people look at the idea of giving people money from the government. And they think well this must be a left-wing idea but actually the first real experiments with it happened in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies and it was driven by a Richard Nixon and Milton Friedman. Who is the father of supply-side economics? Yeah they saw it as a way to replace the welfare system and so they their idea of a basic income is not quite the way I just defined it. It was something called a negative income tax. And so let me. Just get a tiny bit. Wonka share the way it worked in their conception is basically they would give people a percentage of the difference between their income and defined income cutoff or like the point where they start paying income taxes so if they set the cutoff at let's say forty thousand dollars and the negative income tax percentage was fifty percent. Someone who made twenty thousand dollars a year would get ten thousand dollars from the government. They made thirty five thousand they would get two thousand and from the government so is this sort of sliding scale where topped you up up until a certain point and then it went away right. They cancelled it in one thousand nine hundred and you know the the the Reagan era kind of buried it under under Nixon's legacy in Canada. Did something called the men come experiment? Which was the Manitoba Basic Income Experiment? That was more that was closer to the basic income that that I described earlier in the one that a lot of people are talking about right now so that says that gave thirteen hundred urban and rural families in Winnipeg and don't Fan Manitoba with incomes below. Thirteen thousand dollars a year back then money. But by the time that the data was collected in nineteen seventy eight so they ran up from seventy five to seventy eight. The Canadian government kind of lost interest in and they cancelled the project. So we've had these these aborted attempts to gather a sample and it hasn't really provided any conclusive evidence In the in the American one. There's some evidence that it that it you know Negatively impacted people's willingness to go to work in the Canadian won the data suggested otherwise. But there just wasn't enough data to conclusively determine the impact of giving people money on their both on their willingness to work and on on the outcomes that the government's wanted to test. Which is you know better. Health Outcomes Better Labor outcomes better social outcomes so you know the jury was still out right. Will what kind of a sample size and study length? Would you even need to determine that because again we had one or at least something like one here in Ontario Under Kathleen Wynne. A few years ago and the next government came to power and it was immediately phased out. So you know. I don't think we got more than two or three years out of that either. So what kind of scale are we talking about? Yeah I mean to make it work. You would needs multiple cities multiple tests populations and a long duration of study. This is this is a a bold policy intervention but you need to be able to control for extenuating circumstances and factors the Ontario project. Was it had some really promising results. As it turned out there was a study group at McMaster that basically interviewed the people that participated in the program. Some of the data they had eighty percent of of people reporting better health outcomes. They were using less tobacco drinking. Less eighty-three percent said they had better mental health. They were feeling less stressed. They had a better diet And there was even interesting. Data around better labor market outcomes people were basically using the minimum income the guaranteed income to improve their jobs to look for better job. So it's disappointing that the government scrapped it after basically what amounted to one year and left us in the same spot that we've sort of always been with these things where we just don't have enough data for either side to conclusively prove that their argument is right and you know maybe not maybe now is the opportunity to kind of walk in that that longer sample size but you know the problem here is that. It's always tempting for governments to to start these programs and then abandon them or different governments to come in and cancel them. You'd need some sort of agreement by all parties that they're going to let this run. Its course and we haven't really seen that yet. So you mentioned that it's seen mostly now at least as a left-wing idea might have begun under Nixon. But certainly I think that's how most listeners would frame it as you know Whether or not you support it About the side of the spectrum that it comes from but as we've started to see government's realizing how badly they need to help people as the economy collapses during this pandemic have seen any movement On the other side of the aisle towards this kind of idea I think we've seen much more movement on on the conservative side than we have on the progressive side the beano progressives are are are very wary of guaranteed income proposals because I think you know quite rightly they remember certainly the academics who studied this. They remember that it was originally an idea that was intended to get rid of welfare and other social supports and that is always a concern that if you bring in a guaranteed income. Is it really just an attempt to shrink? The size of the state is an attempt to get rid of targeted support programs that that make people's lives better and I think that's a totally valid concern when I when I posted my article from the wall or something twitter. I got a lot of feedback from economists about that where they basically said you know. Oh here we go again. People people don't realize that this is a an attempt to slip in through the back door reduction in social programs. That's really interesting. Yeah but you know. Over the last few months we've seen a really array of conservatives. Come out and say that this is a good idea. Hugh Seagull. Who is a former senator standing red? Tory I WOULD. I would describe him as a thought leader. He's been he's been banging the drum for for guaranteed income for quite some time now but he was always sort of out there in the wilderness as a conservative suggesting that this was a good idea and he wasn't one of the ones who was saying that it should replace social programs. He was saying it should be an augmentation to them but in the states over a matter of weeks you saw people like Mitt. Romney coup is basically the Avatar of hedge fund capitalism. Coming out and and suggesting that this was a good idea that would support. Americans during the fallout from Cova and ultimately Donald Trump's government. It's not it's not a permanent basic income. But they sent a check to every American and that is sort of one of the hallmarks of a basic income. So it's interesting the degree to which we've seen conservatives rally behind this particular policy flag. I think that it is driven by shorter. Term political objectives American politicians having election. That they're looking at in November and one of the surest ways to get defeated is to be in being government while people are losing their jobs losing their homes losing their livelihood so I think it's more self preservation than a genuine change of heart but in from a policy perspective. You take the support where you can get it and you build on it from there. So you know I think advocates of a U. UB. I should take their support and and leverage it in order to build their movement if you can may be explained to me the thought behind the benefits of this applying to absolutely everyone including people who have job because that's really And we can debate in Canada versus the US for however long. But that's that's like the primary difference between what trump's government has done and what Canada's done with the baby. Yeah that's the tricky part. That's the part that a lot of people struggle with conceptually and intellectually as is the idea of giving people who don't need money more money right. Yeah and Ken Boston cool. Who is is a former adviser to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark? He's been kind of driving the bus in Canada around the need for a UB. I you know he's he is preferred that to the more targeted approach that the government has taken with Serb. You know his idea in the short term is we just need to get money into people's hands right. Now we need we need to stimulate the economy and ultimately will tax it back next year on people's income taxes that's the thing about a guaranteed income in the context of the system. We have here is if you're making sixty seventy thousand dollars a year. This is going to a portion of this. We'll get taxed back right and so it's not. It's not really free money. It's a little bit of free money and I suspect there would be some social programs that would get pulled back a little bit to to make the numbers work but you know at the end of the day. I don't think you can let the weaknesses in the policy that that might impact a few people. Override the benefits that would impact far more people. You know there's there's all sorts of data out there that suggests that a basic income would actually stimulate economic growth. There's all kinds of data that suggested improves. Health outcomes and Lord knows improving. Health outcomes would save taxpayers and the government a lot of money. Because that's where an increasing increasingly large part of our social budget is going and we'll continue to go in the years and months to come so you know it it is It's a tough idea to get past for some people that I find working already. Why should I get more money from the government but that money's going back into the economy and it stimulating economic growth that supporting jobs? It's reducing healthcare costs. You know I think there's a pretty good case for it and and you know it's one that we should be willing to explore. I am I am more than open to criticism about the cost factor that I suppose we can get to that in a second but I think we also need to look at the benefits and look a little a little bigger in terms of where those benefits accrue it. It's not just lifting people out of poverty. Although that's that's an obvious benefit it's improving people's health outcomes improving their labor market outcomes. Let's people who have a

"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.

"So you'll hear that a little bit. But I recently returned from Winnipeg where there was a fine hockey game was a fine broadcast. Randy Bachman was fine as well. And the sign was standing as well Elliott's. So let's talk about this second. You know, we were doing we're going to do like in the land or update because people aren't sick enough of that as it is and start going to it. And all of a sudden, I see Marie Corbett who's the technical producer and Michael Hayes. Who's the what they call them at eight to sound guy with us on the set, and they get up and they start waving. So I know there's something bad going on behind me. And in that situation, you're train just to talk. So keep going think of anything, but when I stopped, and we went to commercial my phone was just blowing up and people started, sending me the pictures. I just started laughing. There were some people who were like we didn't want to send it seems. We know how you'd react. Of course. You're gonna laugh like you can't help it laughable that like people were howling. Because a it looked like it was so perfectly place. It looks like a thought bubble like that's what I was really. Plus, just the pure craziness of all one of one thing. I like the. It looked as if this wasn't a sign that was brought deliberately at the moment. Spontaneously this person had this idea. Hey, I'm gonna put up a sign behind Elliott. What should it say, boom? This was not planned if you looked at the first degree definitely looked like something that was picked up in the morning, actually, right then. Yeah. But you know, it was funny too. Because one of my buddies losing the states he said it was very college game day. You know, we don't watch a lot of college came day in Canada. But for those of you who watched their the ESPN previous show on Saturday mornings. They always get crazy signing that gets put up, and it all started if you ever want to Google it. There was a guy who put up a sign years ago. It said I'm Asian and then everybody started doing it. Okay. And so one of the big parts of old college game day is what is the wildest sign that gets on the air. And sometimes it goes way too far. But you know, it's part of the mystique of that show. And he was like that in the attitude air with the same. Yes. Yes. I was. But you know, suffice it to say there were people in the National Hockey League who started texting me and laughing and like they were like did some sign put on behind you. I was saying it to them and just you know at the gym this morning. It was all. Jay talk about it was really funny it so and then when Vancouver won their game last night in Vegas. One of the players texted me and said, it was this really behind last night or is this fuller shop, and so it was hilarious that you can't. You know, we we were talking about, you know, having fun now and laughing at stuff like this, you know, as long as it doesn't go so far over the line that nobody can tolerate it got to be willing to laugh at this kind of stuff. And it was a great night in Winnipeg. And I think we were all howling about all I can think about as I'm watching. This is Matt Mars from producer thinking to himself just get to cover role viz role in anything at this point. We have to get Eliot and the sign off the air ASAP, as polls hair out this conversation about the games between you and me once again, thanks, David. I stepping up and filling in for me, he's such a gracious person standing host. So instead, it will be an interview true nor square. How was it L play this? So this morning, I was on a flight home with Eddie hall who is the the executive producer of remote in studio production people who don't know he is..

"Game misconduct podcast with Don league-record and welcome to the Thursday edition of game misconduct. I am down Liberec not a lot of games last night. But I thought all of them were pretty entertaining. Of course, all of the focus was in Winnipeg to the jets and the Maple Leafs first time ever that NBC sports that had one of that Wednesday night national game where both teams were Canadian emanating from Winnipeg first time that doc Emmerick had been in Winnipeg since he was the devil announcer. The old Winnipeg Jets goes back, you know, prior to nineteen Ninety-six we're talking probably somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty two twenty three years ago. The last time docket stepped into that city and he called a great game. And I'll say this about Winnipeg we can get all excited all we want. Of course. The Leafs win that game four to that. They've got this tremendous comeback ability and they made it three nothing game at three two game in the third period. And we saw we did the last couple of times they played with come from behind victories, including an amazing come from behind victory against Saint Louis, but you can't play that way every night. I mean There's this guy. got to be a little bit more consistency to your game. You can't keep getting off to these slow starts. I think Winnipeg's terrific. And I think there are playoff team. And I think there are a Cup contender. There's no question. But when you start to get to that level, you're gonna get graded a little bit differently than other teams. And that's not the way you wanna play in the playoffs. If you're gonna make a run now, they went to the conference final last year. They're looking to take the next step. There's nothing you can do in October that is going to change what you need to do in April. But you would like to clean some of those things up but give credit Toronto they passed the test. And it was with not your usual suspects score in the goals until Taveras got the huge gold made it four two after healers and shy. Fli had scored back to back goals in the third period to cut the deficit to one. So it's a virus gets his seventh. But captain NS Qadri getting the goals cabinets now out five, so don't misunderstand. As far as that. I'm saying that he's not a good player. But you figure with a marquee gay. I'm like that. It's going to be Matthews. That's going to be Taveras. But it was captain Aniston Qadri NS and cadre getting their first of the season and a nice win for Toronto four to over. The Winnipeg Jets real tough one for the islanders very tough. Now, they got a point which is important three four and one now on the season. But you've got a panther team. That's been on the ropes played a lot of overtime games. Got squashed by the Rangers the night before. So the play in the second of back to backs and you've got to nothing lead going into the third period. He got to win that game. You gotta now maybe you don't get caught up in winning it in regulation because it's non visual team. Who cares? Maybe that can come back to haunt you in a trace for the wild card, but the point is you're up to nothing at home against a reeling panther team that played the night before you cannot lose that game, Nelson and Everley get the tallies for the islanders in the first and second period respectively. Go into the third period, and it's betrayal quick to forty eight in his third Davidov is. Fourth comes midway through. And then Hoffman scores. The goal of the game winning goal in overtime, thirty three seconds. And that's a bad bad loss for the your calendars. They get in to get a point. So I guess you can live with it. But this Allender team trying to find their way Panthers. Trying to find their way as well. We'll see if this maybe Spurs the Panthers on with a nice comeback. Remember this team's gotta go overseas to for that global series. So Panthers needed to they got two of the big third period. Possible Stanley Cup. Final preview. Maybe it's a little too early to talk about that avalanche. The lightning from Colorado. Great game fun game. Boy, love the see. These two teams hook up in the Stanley Cup final. That would be great again way too early to talk about that..
