Roy Green Show Podcast, Feb 18: Dan McTeague challenges Enviro Minister Stephen Guilbeault. – Prof Sylvain Charlebois misquoted by Guilbeault. – Parents spanking children, lawyer Ari Goldkind. – Dr. Shawn Whatley be cautious with any fed pharmacare.

2/18/2024
Today’s podcast: Federal Environment and Climate Change Minister Steven Guilbeault is attempting to walk back his statement "there will be no more envelopes from the federal government to enlarge thed road network" to a Montreal conference earlier in the week. Also stated the federal government wants to get Canadians out of our cars and trucks and living in high density urban areas. Premiers Ford and Smith immediately challenged Gilbeault. - Also the Liberals rebranded the 'Climate Action Incentive Rebate' as the 'Canada carbon rebate.' Guilbeault is also hinting at changes to be announced concerning his energy dictates for provinces, as what he has proposed is receiving heavy pushback from particularly Alberta and Saskatchewan. Trudeau government continues to claim 80% of Canadian households paying the carbon tax will receive more money in rebates than they pay for carbon taxation. Not so according to Parliamentary Budget Officer Yves Giroux in interviews with us. Guest: Dan McTeague. President: Canadians for Affordable Energy. The aforementioned Stephen Guilbeault stated in Canada's parliament that Dalhousie University professor Sylvain Charlebois had stated there is no evidence the carbon tax is negatively affecting food pricing in Canada. Professor Charlebois immediatley pushed back declaring he had never such a thing. Guest: Professor Sylvain Charlebois, Director Agri Foods Lab at Dalhousie University This was a heaveily debated issue 30+ years ago and it's back. NDP sponsored children's rights legislation, Bill 273, would ban spanking of children at home or using force on children at school by supervisory adults (teachers) received support for a second reading in parliament by a 208-115 vote. Section 43 of the Criminal Code (introduced in 1892) and most recently amended by the Supreme Court of Canada in 2004, permits parents to spank judiciously, not in anger and with age consideration of children. The Canadian Teachers Federation opposes the NDP bill/ What about parents? And how does a prominent criminal lawyer view the proposed legislation? (It has been argued parents forcing a child into a children's car seat might run afoul of no corporal punishment legislation.) Guest: Ari Goldkind. Criminal lawyer and media commentator. The federal Liberals and NDP are attempting to negotiate a national pharmacare program in order to keep their political alliance alive and prevent a snap election. Is that a sound basis for a program securing pharmaceuticals for Canadians dealing with a need for medications including significant, even life-threatening illness? Would a national pharmacare program be funded sufficiently that the newest and most effective drugs for cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other serious illnesses become and/or remain available, or would a pharmacare bureaucracy be underfunded or over-regulated to the point pharmaceutical companies would not make the most recent and effective/expensive drugs available to Canada and Canadians? Guest: Dr. Shawn Whatley. Past president of the Ontario Medical Association and author: When Politics Comes Before Patients. --------------------------------------------- Host/Content Producer – Roy Green Technical/Podcast Producer – Tom McKay If you enjoyed the podcast, tell a friend!

Today’s podcast: Significant questions continue to be raised, in the wake of the auditor general's investigation into the ArriveCan app. Conservative MP Larry Brock, former prosecutor, posted to 'X' yesterday (Friday) "GC Strategies – ArriveScam middlemen who received $20M for doing NO work – still receiving taxpayer funds from active contracts with the Trudeau government. Unbelievable!" Public Safety minister Dominic LeBlanc also quizzed at parliamentary committee about the privacy of Canadians having been violated by federal government agencies. We'll ask. Guest: Larry Brock, CPC MP for Brantford-Brant, Ontario. Former prosecutor. Member Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates. Donald Trump and his sons ordered to pay US$346M in New York civil fraud case. Massive judgment with far-reaching implications. What now? Guest: Michael Bachner. Former assistant district attorney in the Rackets Bureau of the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. In 2006, Canada's economic performance was so outstanding the Economist wrote of Canada as an economic "superstar" and "the only country running current-account and budget surpluses." In 2012, the OECD forecast Canada's economic growth would lead the G7 over the next 50 years. Today writes Philip Cross, appointed Statscan Chief Economic Analyst in 2008, Canada's financial sector has toppled and is known for being "an ATM and safe deposit box for money laundering. The OECD last year downgraded Canada's prospects for economic growth through 2060 to dead last out of 38 nations. Most damaging to Canada's economy "are the obstacles governments have deployed to hamper our energy industry." In 2022 Justin Trudeau claimed there is "no business case" to support LNG exports to Europe (which the Europeans desperately wanted from Canada). "American firms though have signed no fewer than 57supply agreements for Europe for 73 million metric tons of LNG annually" according to the Wall Street Journal. Guest: Professor Eric Kam. Macroeconomics. Toronto Metropolitan University. A two year review by researchers at McMaster University of Covid-19 in schools and daycares has shown schools and daycares were not a source of significant virus transmission when infection prevention and control measures were engaged.

Infectious diseases specialist at Halton Healthcare and assistant professor of medicine at the University of Toronto Medical School.

Feb 17: Chief Bruce Shisheesh, 8 years after Trudeau promised to visit, struggles continue for Attawapiskat First Nation,

2/17/2024
Bruce Shisheesh is the former Chief of Attawapiskat (northern Ontario First Nation). In early 2016, Attawapiskat made international headlines over the youth suicides and attempted suicides the community was attempting to deal with and without even fundamental resources required. Bruce Shisheesh was the Chief of Attawapiskat at the time. Chief Shisheesh traveled to Ottawa to meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who followed the meeting with a letter directly promising a visit to the First Nation community, which had existed without clean drinking water for decades, and Trudeau ended his letter with the words "Indeed, I look forward to visiting Attawapiskat in the near future." 8 years later the struggles in Attawapiskat continue and Mr. Trudeau has not been seen in the community, something Chief Shisheesh reminded me of on 'X' earlier in the week. We have the letter Justin Trudeau sent to Chief Shisheesh in 2016. Guest: Bruce Shisheesh, former Chief of Attawapiskat First Nation. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Feb 17: Roy Green and Callers, what if 20 to 30 Lib MPs crossed the aisle? (Hypothetical)

2/17/2024
I posted two random thoughts to 'X' Thursday which received far more response than expected both on 'X' and by email. 1: Lunacy! @s_guilbeault declaration fed go will provide no funds for new roads/highways. Do Lib MPs not realize they're on the road/highway to unemployment? In the interest of self-preservation cross the floor, facilitate the inevitable a CPC majority government and go now! If they'll have you after strong response the first post was followed by: 2: You have to admit 20 to 30 Lib MP's switching sides and moving @PierrePoilievre into the PMO corner office 'before' the fed elexn would shake up Ottawa like it has never been shaken up before. Sure, fanciful thinking, but you have to step outside the box at least once. Even more 'X' response, as well as email. Guest: Roy Green. We ask listeners to respond to the Thursday 'X' speculation.
