The Roy Green Show Podcast May11: The day we lost Rex Murphy, with Catherine Swift. - Fmr BC minister Selena Robinson says premier "gaslighting" on antisemitism. - Dr Arthur Caplan on MAID. - Lawyer Scott Taylor, surprise if you're in a relationship.

Today’s podcast: The passing of Rex Murphy. Guest: Catherine Swift. Multi-decade friend and president of Coalition of Concerned Manufacturers and Businesses of Canada. Also member of our Beauties and the Beast panel. And: Callers, reflecting on what made Rex special.   Selina Robinson was until recently a senior cabinet minister in the British Columbia provincial NDP government of David Eby. Then her comment on a B'nai Brith organized panel show that before Israel became a state its territory was just "a crappy piece of land with nothing on it," where several hundred thousand people lived, but it didn't produce anything and didn't have an economy. The backlash to MLA Robinson's statement caused her eventual and bitter resignation from cabinet and the NDP party as she claimed antisemitism exists among NDP caucus members. Now MLA Robinson accuses premier Eby of "gaslighting" the Jewish community with empty promises to do something about antisemitism (per Vaughn Palmer in Vancouver Sun). Guest: Selena Robinson. Independent MLA, British Columbia.   Canada's system of MAID (Medical assistance in dying) is under increased international and national scrutiny and criticism. In 2021, more than 10,000 people chose to die with physician administered drugs. The question of whether mental illness is a sole qualifier for MAID was addressed in parliament, reminding that in 2015 the Supreme Court ruled adults with "a grievous and irremedial medical condition" were eligible for assisted death. Now there is growing fear people under economic strain are accessing MAID.  In 2021, more than 10,000 people accessed MAID in Canada, while at the same time the numbers of doctors engaging in providing medical assistance in dying is dropping. Meanwhile a leading United States medical ethicist is calling for MAID to immediately be adopted in the State of New York.  Guest: Dr. Arthur Caplan. Mitty Professor of Bioethics. NYU Grossman School of Medicine.  Author: Smart Mice, Not so smart People.   Split headline: Canada's divorce rate is at its lowest in 50 years. However, Fewer people are entering marriage. This according to a report from the Vanier Institute of the Family. What gives? Hold on though! There's another consideration. What is happening to couples who live together in common-law relationships, but choose not to marry? In 2021, according to the Vanier report, 22.7% of couples were living common-law and when they split up the numbers are shifted to the divorced column. In our efforts to explore these stories, we uncover some truly shocking information about the nitty-gritty of common-law relationships.

Two Ontario byelections this week and in both cases premier Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives won easily over the Liberal and NDP candidates. A precursor to the upcoming federal election?  Will area codes 416 and 905 in the federal go-round, be it later this year or next year not be sending Liberals or NDP candidates in any appreciable numbers to Ottawa? Will 416 and 905 align with Western Canadian voters who often complain Canada's most populous province pushes aside the voting of the West? We asked this question of Darrell Bricker, CEO of IPSOS Public Affairs.

The Roy Green Show Podcast Apr27: Sask premier Moe responds to Trudeau challenge. - Toronto Police Assoc president Jon Reid, TPA post-Zameer trial. - Professor Eric Kam, antisemitism at Tor Metropolitan Univ.

Today's podcast: PM Justin Trudeau on Wednesday challenged Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe saying "good luck with that" concerning the premier's decision to no longer collect the federal carbon tax and remit to Ottawa, adding CRA is "very, very good at getting money it is owed." What does the Saskatchewan premier say in response to the challenge be Mr. Trudeau? Guest: Scott Moe. Premier. Saskatchewan. Replies to PM. Questions linger over the Umar Zameer first degree murder charge in the death of Toronto police Detective Constable Jeffrey Northrup and reaction to the trial of Mr. Zameer which came to an end last Sunday with a not guilty jury verdict, as well as the trial judge's "deepest apologies" expressed to Mr. Zameer. Toronto Police Chief Myron Demkiw's statement following the verdict that police "were hoping for a different outcome" has caused the Canadian Civil Liberties Association to engage and on Thursday the CCLA wanted to know what steps the Toronto Police Services Board will take to ensure the Chief and other police members will not "publicly malign bail decisions or criminal verdicts in the future." Toronto Police Service has responded, saying the chief "has stated numerous times that he supports the justice system and accepts the decision by the jury."  Comments made by Ontario premier Doug Ford, who described bail issued to Mr. Zameer as "completely unacceptable." Ford has since said his statement was based on "limited information" about the case. We speak to the head of the Toronto Police Association, representing rank and file officers. This after Umar Zameer advised "police should not commit perjury, or put up people prepared to commit perjury."   Guest: Jon Reid. President Toronto Police Association. Why are university students in both Canada and the United States, as well as in Europe particularly engaging in "Jew hatred?" The clinical term is antisemitism, but really in the post secondary environments it is blatant Jew hatred which I for one never expected to experience at all in Canada, let alone at the level we're witnessing. We're going to speak with Jewish Canadians both today and tomorrow and one of our guests tomorrow was the specific target of vicious and intimidating Jew hatred.  Guest: Professor Eric Kam. Usually our go-to macroeconomics professor dealing with our national and personal economies, but today back to speak about Jew hatred on university campuses and one in particular. His university campus. Toronto Metropolitan University. Three weeks ago Professor Kam joined us with Emma, a Jewish student of his who feels empowered after discussing the issue of antisemitism at TMU with Professor Kam. --------------------------------------------- Host/Content Producer – Roy Green Technical/Podcast Producer – Tom Craig If you enjoyed the podcast, tell a friend!

Apr 27: Lawyer Sandra Zisckind, lawsuit against "poisoned antisemitic learning and working environment," at TMU.

Three weeks ago we spoke with Toronto Metropolitan University Jewish student Emma and her Jewish professor and our program economics contributor Eric Kam about blatant antisemitism Jewish students at TMU are subjected to. Since then a lawsuit has been launched by a student and former employee of TMU against the university claiming $1.3 million in damages arguing TMU has become a "poisoned antisemitic learning and working environment." Last November Toronto law firm Diamond and Diamond initiated a class action lawsuit against Toronto Metropolitan University and its student union alleging both groups repeatedly have failed to address a "well-documented history of antisemitism on the TMU campus." This lawsuit represents all current Jewish TMU students, as well as Jewish students who attended TMU between 1998 and 2021.  Guest: Sandra Zisckind, founding partner, at Diamond and Diamond LLP (DiamondLaw.ca) Learn more about your ad choices.

Shared with us last year that home buyers who had placed down payments on new homes were so financially stressed they were walking away from their under construction homes and willing to forfeit their deposits which Shane Wenzel was refunding his stressed buyers.   Frontline Canadian doctors are fed up with being forced by government bureaucrats/bureaucracy into turning more money over to government (witness capital gains change in 2024 fed budget).

There is increased hope that a Canada-based NHL team will hoist the Stanley Cup. That has not happened since 1993, when the Montreal Canadiens, led by their Captain Guy Carbonneau won the final series against the Los Angeles Kings 4 games to 1, after having eliminated the New York Islanders, Buffalo Sabres and Quebec Nordiques, winning 16 games and losing only 3.   Guest:  Guy Carbonneau.

Guest: Pierre Poilievre. Leader. Conservative Party of Canada.   Rampant and open drug use, weapons and violence have become commonplace in B.C. hospitals since drug decriminalization was enacted, thereby threatening the safety of both patients and front-line health workers says the British Columbia Nurses Union (BCNU).

Apr 6: Abmassador Olexander Scherba, Ukraine military supplies running low.

While the world's current focus is on the Israel/Hamas war, Ukraine's war with Russia has entered its third year and news from Ukraine is that the country's military is running seriously low on war fighting equipment and munitions as the U.S. primarily is holding up a major arms shipment due to Republican/Democrat political infighting. NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg has floated a plan for a 100-billion Euro, 5-year weapons support plan for Ukraine prior to the U.S. national election in November. NATO is calling on all its members to live up to their 2% of GDP military spending commitment that Canada has already said we will not reach.  While Ukrainian drones are now striking deep inside Russia, on the battlefields its military is facing operating with war equipment and mismatched ammunition. Meanwhile, French president Macron has not ruled out sending French ground troops into Ukraine to engage Russia there. Guest: Ambassador Olexander Scherba, from Kyiv. Ambassador Sherba was Ukraine's chief diplomatic representative to Austria and a member of the Ukraine diplomatic delegation to Washington.

Apr 6: Jon Reid, Toronto Police Association, response to critical letter from City Councilors

We speak with Toronto Police Association president Jon Reid about the letter sent by six members of Toronto City Council, two on the police board, challenging police action at pro-Palestinian protests and demonstrations, particularly on March 30 when several people were arrested after clashing with police. The councillors letter includes "it is deeply concerning to hear residents voicing fears about their freedom to engage in protests, demonstrations and large gatherings." Toronto Chief of Police Myhron Demkiw's statement in reply included "The service will always respect the right to lawful assembly, which we have done, consistently since October 7"......"When individual behaviour crosses into criminality, endangering officers or the public we will enforce the law, as is our duty....."last weekend alone, police officers were assaulted, spit on, a police horse was struck, lawful orders not followed and demonstrators attempted to obstruct officers who were effecting arrests." The Toronto Police Association in its statement wrote officers have exercised patience, have been professional and opted to de-escalate situations while "officers have been threatened with injury or death."  A demonstration is planned for Toronto this afternoon.

Roy Green Show Podcast, Mar30: Sask Premier Moe challenges Trudeau on carbon tax hike. - Prof Sylvain Charlebois, enviro minister misquote, and why are Cdns spending less on food? - Cdn bridge engineer Hellen Christodoulou on Baltimore collapse.

Today’s podcast:   A majority of Canada's premiers calling on the Justin Trudeau federal government to forego the scheduled for April 1 increase in the federal carbon tax. Trudeau insists premiers are lying about the tax when they insist it will only add to the financial burdens Canadian families are experiencing. The parliamentary budget officer told us for a second or third time on air on February 25 the carbon tax Canadian middle class families will pay will not be made revenue neutral by federal government rebates. The tax appears integral to the rapidly diminishing national support for the Trudeau government among voters. Guest: Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe. The premier assured us on air as long ago as January that Saskatchewan will neither collect nor remit the carbon tax to the federal government. Premier Moe on Wednesday appeared before the parliamentary Government Operations and Estimates committee.   Professor Sylvain Charlebois (Dalhousie university Agri Foods lab director) posted that according to Statscan the average Canadian is spending less than $250.00 monthly on groceries, a 19% decrease since 2021. According to Dalhousie's Canada Food Price Report the average person should spend $339 per month on healthy food.  Also: Charlebois also posted on Twitter/X that the only media reporting on federal environment minister Steven Guilbeault publicly misquoting him (Charlebois) in parliament as saying the carbon tax has no impact on rising food prices was done on our program. We will revisit.   As well: Professor Charlebois wrote an op ed for Post Media arguing the "phenomenon of GLP-1 drugs, exemplified by the widespread use of Ozempic, is revolutionizing societal attitudes toward health and dietary habits." Guest: Professor Sylvain Charlebois. Director of the Dalhousie University Agri Food lab.   The Francis Scott Key bridge collapse in Baltimore (timeline) after being struck by the container ship Dali.

Today's Podcast "Axe the tax" Playback of our exclusive interview with Pierre Poilievre on his "axe the (carbon) tax" national election commitment - and separately Poilievre's reply to BC premier David Eby's claim that Poilievre's "axe the tax" messaging is from the CPC leader's "baloney factory." Keeping in mind the majority of Canada's premiers support Poilievre, including the only Liberal premier Dr. Andrew Furey of Newfoundland and Labrador. Guests: Pierre Poilievre (playback) Callers Just days after George Lovie, convicted first degree murderer of the parents of Don Edwards went AWOL while on day parole with an arrest warrant issued for Lovie, he was granted full parole by just two members of the National Parole Board. The parole board also declared the double murderer doesn't need to understand why he is a risk to others. Lovie has been on day parole since 2019, but has for a year-plus been allowed to spend five nights a week in his own apartment near Sudbury, Ontario.  The Edwards family remains very much afraid of Lovie and during his being AWOL was warned by police to put their safeguarding practices into play. Guests: Don and Tannis Edwards. Public frustration with and opposition to the carbon tax continues to grow. We heard from CPC leader Pierre Poilievre on his 'axe the tax' national pre-election commitment yesterday and today, as well as BC premier David Eby characterizing Poilievre's challenge of the carbon tax as being from PP's "baloney factory."  Listeners/callers have challenged the BC premier and an email sent by a Green Show listener to Trudeau, Freeland, Guilbeault and Singh, with Poilievre and me cc'd is brief, and describes the pain the carbon tax and misdirection by politicians who do not share the difficulties the average Canadian addresses daily continues to receive positive listener response. - As well, an IPSOS poll for RBC of last October details the distress Canadians, particularly younger adults, are experiences over money woes. A majority of these Canadians told IPSOS their personal relationships are impacted by financial stress and mental health has suffered as well. The Mental Health Commission of Canada previously affirmed unemployment and financial problems to be key risks for suicide and that when the economy turns down, depression and anxiety rise. Then, we take your calls. Does listener George's email represent your experience trying to stay financially afloat and do you support George's call for tax relief?  Guests: Sean Simpson. VP. IPSOS Public Affairs. Tells us the situation has if anything only worsened since the poll last October. Callers This past week in Ottawa with the editor of Blacklock's Reporter. Guest: Tom Korski.

Today's Podcast: Pierre Poilievre's "axe the (carbon) tax" national campaign continues and despite BC premier David Eby not joining the majority of Canada's premiers supporting either ending the carbon tax, or at least delaying the implementation of its April 1 scheduled increase and describing Poilievre's letter to the bc premier requesting his support for the "axe the tax" initiative as something from the Pierre Poilievre "baloney factory" the CPC leader, who national polling shows continues with his national campaign. We speak with Poilievre about carbon tax, national economy (bank economists expressing deep concern), crime and justice, immigration, Melanie Joly's photo with Mahmoud Abbas and more. As well, on Monday a federal NDP motion in parliament will have MPs voting on the NDP's call for Canada's support for the establishment of a State of Palestine, as well as an end to arm shipments from Canada to Israel. Guest: Pierre Poilievre. Leader: Conservative Party of Canada For years it is said that in the aviation industry the cliche was "if it's not Boeing, I'm not going." Now it's rumoured the cliche has become "if it's Boeing, I'm not going." Boeing's terrible record of producing safe airliners over the last years again earlier this year, as well as last week was highlighted through mishaps involving 737 Max aircraft including the door plug blowing out of an Alaska Airlines 737 Max in January, a 787 Max Dreamliner which plunged without warning injuring up to 50 passengers last week, also last week a tire falling off a Boeing 757 seconds after takeoff from San Francisco airport and the nose wheel of another Boeing 757 airliner broke away while it was taxiing toward takeoff at Atlanta International Airport in January. Boeing is under FAA investigation. Last Sunday I flew from Orlando to Toronto on a 737 Max 8 and it was an uneasy experience. What is going on with Boeing? Guest: Captain Raymond Hall. Former head of the Air Canada Pilots Association and multi-decade Air Canada captain who flew Boeing airliners on major international routes.  G&M headline: More economists are getting deeply worried about Canada's future - and investors are taking notice. Earlier this month Scotiabank's head of capital markets economics Derek Holt wrote "I'm deeply worried about public policy in my country." Over last weekend BMO chief economist Doug Porter and National Bank strategist Stefane Marion joined the grim chorus. And the OECD projects Canada's economic performance this decade and through to 2060 will be dead last among advanced nations. Meanwhile, we have what the world needs and is willing to purchase, namely natural resources such as oil and natural gas. Guest: Professor Eric Kam. Macroeconomics, Toronto Metropolitan University.  When it comes to ethics and ethical behaviour and the stunningly minor penalties for ethics violations for ignoring of ethics from the PM down to the occupants of the very back benches in parliament what is the story?  A former Liberal MP shares with us that not only was there (for her) the demand of unethical behaviour, but as well there were in 2007 significant penalties if that demand was not adhered to by the MP. - As well, our guest's husband was present when coaching on violating ethics took place.  Guest: Michelle Simson, former Liberal MP  --------------------------------------------- Host/Content Producer – Roy Green Technical/Podcast Producer – Tom Craig If you enjoyed the podcast, tell a friend!

The Best of Roy Green, Mar 10: Chris Sankey, former Councillor at Lax Kw'alaams First Nation challenges NDP gas bill. - Ujjal Dosanjh, formor BC Premier, Fed parties here for Canadians, or themselves? - Lawyer Ari Golkind, parents spanking children.

Get caught up on the year so far with this weekend's encore presentation of the Roy Green Show! Today's best of the best: NDP MP Charlie Angus private members Bill 372 (which Angus compares to legislative efforts of the 1990's to punish the tobacco industry for wilfull and incorrect advertising), would result in positive advertising/messaging by oil and natural gas producers and their supporters could result in massive fines and possible imprisonment. Note: Angus did not reply to an invitation to appear on this program) Also: Joe Biden recently placed a temporary halt on issuing U.S. liquid natural gas export licences. Are many (most) First Nations in Canada supportive of encouraging Canada to engage in export of LNG?   Guest: Chris Sankey. Former elected councillor at Lax Kw'alaams first nation, businessman, op ed writer and senior Fellow at the MacDonald-Laurier Institute.  Originally Aired Feb 10, 2024. Is Canada veering (stumbling) toward a late 2024 federal election of our own? Are federal political parties fairly focusing on the issues driving Canadian views and concerns, or are the parties in it for their own success? We ask a former premier and federal minister for his thoughts. As well, why are more younger Canadians than younger Ameicans and younger Canadian women supporting Donald Trump? Guest: Ujjal Dosanjh. Fmr British Columbia premier and former Liberal federal Minister of Health.  Originally Aired Jan 28, 2024. 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.

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.)

Today's Podcast Utah state legislation likely to pass the state legislature within the next week-plus will require children under 18 to receive parental consent in order to log onto websites such as Facebook, Tumblr, Reddit, as well as fan fiction sitesd or similar online services. The same applies to all social media. A legal challenge has caused the legislation to be redrafted.  Our guest has spoken with legislators in two dozen other U.S. states interested in similar legislation and not unlike the 'Protecting Young Persons from Exposure to Pornography Act' legislation under consideration in Canada which would require a user to verify his/her age before being able to access pornography websites. We speak with a state legislator prominent in creating the Utah law.   Guest: Jordan Teuscher. Utah State Representative   In October of 2023, the federal government removed the carbon tax from home heating oil for three years, a measure most beneficial to Atlantic Canadians. Justin Trudeau though has refused to provide a similar carbon tax carveout for Canadians heating their homes with natural gas or propane, used by the majority of residents in the prairie provinces. This week Saskatchewan's minister responsible for provincial energy utility announced the province will not remit the carbon levy on home heating fuels to Ottawa, understanding this may lead to fines and potentially prison time for executives of SaskEnergy.  We speak with the premier of Saskatchewan. Guest: Scott Moe. Premier. Saskatchewan.  This week Canadians found out at parliamentary ethics committee hearings that the RCMP never tried to interview Justin Trudeau as part of the SNC-Lavalin scandal probe. Democracy Watch continues to demand the RCMP Commissioner and a key RCMP officer reveal why it performed a weak "lapdog" Trudeau cabinet/SNC Lavalin investigation and why the RCMP is still hiding 2,200+ pages of investigation records in violation of the Access to Information Act. As well, why the RCMP's national command "rolled over and didn't prosecute anyone."  Then parliamentary ethics commissioner Mario Dion convicted the prime minister of an ethics violation for interfering with federal Minister of Justice and Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould.  The RCMP was to investigate obstruction of justice and intimidation of a justice system participant.

Also: the PBO stated and as Global News reported "the federal government's carbon price could generate more than $5 billion from the federal sales tax over the next seven years, but none of that is directly earmarked for climate programs."  Does the PBO stay with his analysis of 2022 that as the carbon tax reaches $170 per ton in 2030, lower income households should continue to receive rebates, but middle and upper-class households should be expected to pay hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, resulting in a net loss. Guest: Yves Giroux. Parliamentary budget officer. News Israel's war cabinet was briefed on Paris talks with mediators from Egypt, Qatar and the U.S. over a ceasefire deal in Gaza which would see the return of Israeli hostages held by Hamas, as well as the release of Palestinian prisoners being held in Israel. - Meanwhile in Tel Aviv police broke up a protest calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Netanyahu. Guest: Vivian Bercovici. Former Canadian Ambassador to Israel. Joins us from Tel Aviv Two years ago today the Russian military was 24 hours into its invasion of Ukraine and experts were predicting a quick end and the fall of the Ukraine military and government. Today, the war continues increasingly difficult for Ukraine, but with Russia having suffered massive losses of soldiers killed or wounded, as well as huge losses in military equipment. Yesterday Prime Minister Trudeau in Kyiv committed to Canada's continued support for Ukraine.

Feb24: President CMA Dr. Kathleen Ross. 6 million Cdns have no family doctor.

The federal NDP and Liberal Party agreed to forming/funding of a national pharmacare program. For millions of Canadians the issue is far more basic. These Canadians often cannot obtain a prescription (or diagnosis) of their serious, even life-threatening illness.   At present more than 6 million people in Canada are without a family (primary care) doctor. Some patients are dying. That number will soon reach 10 million, or 25% of the current national population. Family doctors under huge pressure are moving to other medical disciplines or retiring. Where should the emphasis be? Pharmacare or securing sufficient numbers of primary care physicians? Guest: Dr. Kathleen Ross. President: Canadian Medical Association.

Feb24: Dr Brian Day. Is it time to increase private healthcare delivery options in Canada?

Is this the time to increase private healthcare delivery options in Canada? How does anyone answer "no" with more than 6 million Canadians having no primary care physician? If the answer is "no" is it so truly to protect Canada's public healthcare system, or to protect political capital? Our guest argues Canada's public health care was once the envy of the world, but no longer. He has for decades fought in court and in the court of public opinion for patients to have greater options to seek and obtain the care they immediately require.

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?

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

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.

Feb 3: Betty Carbert, son is one of "The Coutts 4" in pre-trial custody 2 yrs. Law Prof Doug King, the 4's right to speedy trial violated?

Two weeks ago the Federal Court determined the Trudeau government's invoking of the Emergencies Act violated Canadians' protections under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. - Then questions were asked about the so-called COUTTS 4 who have remained held in pre-trial custody and without bail since February 13/14, 2022, after being arrested and charged at the Coutts, Alberta - U.S. border crossing, as truckers and farmers blocked the border while protesting federal Covid-19 mandates.  The four men face charges of conspiracy to commit murder (police officers), possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose and mischief over $5,000.  Lawyers have questioned whether the men's constitutional rights to engage in a fulsome defence of the charges against them have been violated. They had been scheduled to stand trial last June.  This week, an Ontario Superior Court overturned and earlier court acquittal on a mischief charge against Allen Remley, a Freedom Convoy protester in Ottawa. Mr. Remley had been accused by police of operating a "mobile gas station," a children's wagon filled with jerry cans. He had also parked his truck illegally. There is a publication ban in place on goings-on in court concerning the Coutts 4. Second guest this half hour will address this issue. First guest: Betty Carbert, mother of one of the Coutts 4, Chris Carbert. A mother's experience as her son remains imprisoned for almost 2 years without bail.  Second Guest: Doug King, criminal law professor at Mount Royal University in Calgary. We talk about being just days away from two years of pre-trial custody without bail for the Coutts 4, the constitutional right to a timely trial, absence of bail and what may lie ahead for these four men.

Jan 28: Innocence Canada, how do 2 wrongfully convicted men rebuild their lives after decades in prison?

We spoke two weeks ago about New Brunswick convicted murderers Bobby Mailman and Wally Gillespie. Each was convicted in the 1980's for the same murder. Bobby Mailman spent 18 years in prison and Wally Gillespie spent 21 years imprisoned and yet the were both innocent of the crime. Two weeks ago the Chief Justice of New Brunswick on the first day of a retrial acquitted the two men when the Crown said it had no evidence against them. Mailman though is now 76 and dying of cancer, while Gillespie is 80 and living in poverty. Meanwhile the the Justice Minister of New Brunswick has said nothing, even this week, of the wrongful conviction of both men, or about any compensation for the many years they were imprisoned while innocent.   We spoke two weeks ago with Ron Dalton, president of Innocence Canada, which through its efforts was able to convince the federal justice minister to hold a second trial for Mailman and Gillespie (Ron Dalton himself was innocent of the murder of his wife, although he was convicted in her death). So now what for two men who spent a combined more than 40 years in prison innocent of the crime for which they'd been convicted? What responsibility does Canada have to compensate these two older men for the theft of many years of their lives? Guests: Ron Dalton. President Innocence Canada Win Wahrer. Director of client services for Innocence Canada. Has been at the forefront of fighting for the incarcerated innocent for many Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Jan 27: Joe Warmington, Attack on Edmonton City Hall, and Tucker Carlson meets with Premier Danielle Smith

On Tuesday 28 year old Bezhani Sarvar is alleged to have entered Edmonton city call carrying a long gun and incendiary devices described as long guns. Sarvar, according to Edmonton police statement "once inside City Hall he lit several handheld incendiary devices, believed to be Molotov cocktails, that caused one small fire outside an elevator. He then fired several shots from a long gun into the ceiling, walls and windows." There is reported to be a video, writes Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun, in a column which also appeared in the Edmonton Sun, in which Sarvar is believed to be heard citing "this genocide that's going on in Gaza and throughout the world." The voice on the video, includes "we will rise up against you guys, and we'll put you on trial." Rambles on about climate change, taxes and more. Joe Warmington wonders why this assault at Edmonton City Hall has received so little attention nationally. Joe's column is headlined: "This was a jihad-like terror attack in Canada that no one seems to know about." AND Joe added to his columns about goings-on in Alberta on Thursday with one headlined "Tucker Carlson drops bombs Alberta won't soon forget" as the former FOX News show host, appearing at an event with premier Danielle Smith, as well as other conservative figures in Canada and making remarks challenged as homophobic and far-right American. The premier is as well as targeted by federal Liberals and federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh for appearing with Tucker Carlson. Guest: Joe Warmington. Featured columnist Toronto Sun/Edmonton Sun.

Israel's Ambassador to Canada   On January 4, Robert Mailman (76) and Walter Gillespie (80), were acquitted by the Chief Justice of King's Bench Court in St. John, New Brunswick of murder convictions dating back 40 years. Both Mailman and Gillespie had strong alibis with witnesses placing them kilometers from the murder scene on the day of the crime. Both men were nevertheless convicted with no chance of parole for 18 years. On the first day of their second trial January 4, the Crown declared they had no evidence to present and invited the Court to acquit them both. Mailman and Gillespie were represented by lawyers for Innocence Canada which had taken on their cause. Guest: Ron Dalton. President: Innocence Canada. Mr. Dalton himself was convicted of murder in the death of his wife and served years in prison before forensic evidence proved him innocent and that there indeed had been no crime, as Mr. Dalton's wife had died of asphyxiation of a piece of breakfast cereal   Yumna and Khadeja Farooq of Toronto and the rent hike of $7000 per month for their 2-bedroom apartment in Toronto made national and international headlines last September. We check in with the Farooq sisters to find out how their situation evolved at this time of economic stress for so many Canadians. Guests: Yumna and Khadeja Farooq   German farmers this past week-plus, in protest against their federal government's decision to slash a farmers diesel subsidy, amid other complaints against the national Berlin government, shut down many parts of Germany, including Berlin with a massive protest using farm tractors to block roads and highways.

In Canada, agricultural groups such as the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association and their farmer members have strongly denounced the Trudeau government's introduction and increases of the federal carbon tax on their agricultural initiatives. Also, extremely critical of Trudeau fertilizer initiatives. How deep is Canadian farmers frustration and might Canada's farmers take public action, perhaps similar to their German counterparts?

Jan 14: Scott Newark, On Case of Convenience Store Clerk Charged With Assault After Foiling Robbery Attempt

National focus this week on a crime incident in Peterborough, Ontario. At a convenience store a 22 year old clerk was helping a customer when a male with a baseball bat entered the store, allegedly demanding cash and striking the clerk with the bat. A fight ensued and the clerk grabbed the baseball bat, chased the would-be robber outside the store and allegedly proceeded to hit the man several times with the bat. The robber was taken to hospital for treatment while the clerk was treated by EMS at the site. - Police then laid an aggravated assault criminal charge against the 22 year old store clerk. Response was immediate with hundreds of Peterborough residents and others challenging the police decision saying the clerk had acted in self defence, prompting the Peterborough chief of police to take to 'X' and defend his officers and the laying of the charge. Again, the question is what is permitted as far as self defence is concerned in Canada with inconsistent court rulings having occurred. Guest: Scott Newark. Former AB Crown attorney, former Executive Officer of the Canadian Police Association, snr. policy advisor to a federal Minister for Public Safety and Vice Chair of the Ontario Office for Victims of Crime.

Today’s podcast: The province of Alberta is in conflict with the federal Liberal government of Justin Trudeau, with Premier Danielle Smith and her UCP government passing the Alberta Sovereignty within a United Canada Act on December 8, 2022. - Smith has since challenged Ottawa on its overreach into provincial consitutionally enshrined jurisdiction over energy development, with the Supreme Court of Canada, by strong majority supporting Alberta's position energy development is provincial government domain. Smith has, like Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe, declared Ottawa is endangering national unity with its demands for elimination of fossil fuels to produce so-called 'clean' energy by 2030. Like Scott Moe, Danielle Smith was in Dubai for COP 28 and is not at all pleased with the positions adopted in Dubai by federal environment minister Stephen Guilbeault. Will the conflict between Alberta continue in 2024 and what might it look like and how is, in the premier's view, the Trudeau government stepping on provincial jurisdiction? Note: we also ask the premier for her reaction to 15-year-old being arrested near Ottawa Friday and facing like terrorism charges in court tomorrow. A 16-year-old was arrested by the RCMP in Calgary on similar grounds by RCMP on Wednesday. Youth radicalization concerns? Guest: Danielle Smith. Premier.

Guest: Darrell Bricker. CEO IPSOS Public Affairs. Author: NEXT. On a personal level 2023 was the year I was diagnosed with stage 4, metastatic prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is an increasing concern for men who all too frequently ignore symptoms, as I did. Earlier this year we spoke with Todd Seals who in 2007, at the age of 42, was given just months to live following a metastatic stage 4 prostate cancer diagnosis. 16 years later Todd Seals is still very much alive and living well, although he continues to battle his cancer. - New, excellent, but hugely expensive medications are available today, but weren't when Todd was first diagnosed. His story has been reported on by major media and health organizations. Todd rejoins us today with a message for all men, their significant others and families. HIs message is personal, direct and filled with humour. Do not let 2023 pass without acknowledging symptoms and make sure 2024 is the year of treatment and maximizing life. Guest: Todd Seals. Stage 4, metastatic cancer survivor.

Dec 17: Prof Sylvain Charlebois, Disturbing Trend in 2023 Spiraling Cost of Food

One of the most watched, disturbing and talked about realities of 2023 was the spiraling cost of food. We heard about consumer experiences and concerns regularly. This with 6.8 million Canadians, including 1.8 million children in Canada (U of T) experiencing food insecurity and food banks nationally stretched beyond their capacity to make up for the food shortfall. - There were questions about grocers engaging in profiteering at the expense of consumers and grocery chain CEO's were summoned to appear before parliament more than once. Food inflation outpaced general inflation for months on end. How do we assess 2023 and what should we expect for 2024?

Today’s podcast: A strained relationship between the province of Saskatchewan and the federal government continued to become increasingly challenged in 2023, resulting in the province passing the Saskatchewan First Act, designed to protect the province from constitutional overreach by the federal government. Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe told us repeatedly the Trudeau government was engaged in attacks on the province over Ottawa's energy policy which was endangering national unity. - Has the situation eased at all, or should we expect ever more acrimony in 2024? Guest: Scott Moe. Premier. Saskatchewan. Bank of Canada governor Tiff Macklem yesterday said inflation may be getting close to the bank's target of 2% by the end of next year, and while not making a commitment did say as well the BOC is increasingly confident interest rates will not have to be moved higher in order to get prices back under control. The Canadian economy shuddered in 2023 with the Bank of Canada repeatedly raising interest rates and inflation climbing so significantly a many Canadians told pollsters they are "tapped out" and 40% lose sleep each night worrying about their personal financial reality, Canadian homeowners in large numbers have concerns they will not be able to afford their homes as mortgage rates climb. Canadians are living with $2.4 trillion debt according to Equifax as 2023 comes to a close.

A motion which did not mention Hamas, a designated by Canada terrorist organization by name. Nevertheless, does Israel have concern it is, by the nature of its military assault on Gaza in pursuit of Hamas' leaders, becoming increasingly isolated internationally and compromising positive engagement with governments in the region developed over decades? Israel's Ambassador to Canada declared the Trudeau government's support of the U.N. motion to be "naive." Guest: Iddo Moed. Israel's Ambassador to Canada. Canadian armed forces (CAF) lack of world class war-fighting equipment in this increasingly unstable world significantly alarms one of Canada's most decorated and respected military leaders.

The Roy Green Show Podcast Dec 3: Moncton Cancels Menorah for Hanukkah. - Lorrie Goldstein on Jew haters. - Alberta Confrontation with Ottawa, Ted Morton and AB minister Neudorf. - First Degree Murderer Tortures Don Edwards & Edwards family, Parole Bd Oks

Today's Podcast: The city of Moncton is removing the annual menorah display during Hanukkah after 20 years and the Mayor's rationale, citing a 2015 Supreme Court of Canada decision separating church and state and disallowing councils from beginning meetings with prayer is being challenged nationally and described as cowardly and motivated by fear of antisemitic demonstrators. Meanwhile Christian symbols like angels will continue to be displayed at city hall. Moncton's Jewish population is challenging the decision by a now unavailable for further comment Mayor Dawn Arnold Guest: Leigh Lampert. Moncton based lawyer and member of the Moncton synagogue board of directors. A member of the city's Jewish delegation who met with Mayor Arnold. Lorrie Goldstein column in today's Toronto Sun: I'm done with having to explain myself to Jew haters. "Sorry Jew haters, but as a Canadian Jew I'm not going to be apologizing for my right to exist."  Guest: Lorrie Goldstein. Editor emeritus Toronto Sun and member of the Canadian News Hall of Fame. The warring escalates between the federal government and the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta, with Alberta premier Danielle Smith calling the Justin Trudeau government "lawless." We look back to previous battles between Ottawa and Alberta, as well as the current situation which affects us all. Guest: Ted Morton. Former Alberta Minister of Finance, Minister of Sustainable Resource Development. - Also in 2001 a member of a group of 6 Albertans (including Stephen Harper) who wrote the so-called Firewall Letter calling on the Alberta government to use its constitutional powers to reduce the influence the federal government had on the province, including withdrawing from the Canada Pension Plan. (Familiar?)  The current battle between Alberta and Ottawa. Premier Smith in Dubai for COP28. She has described the Justin Trudeau government as "lawless." Alberta and Saskatchewan lead the charge to put an end to the federal carbon tax.  Guest: Nathan Neudorf. Alberta Minister of Development and Utilities.  A double convicted 1st degree murderer George Lovie, whose parole hearing where he was to seek unrestricted parole has been deferred from December 8 to early 2024. The hearing has been deferred because the double convicted murderer demanded that and the Canadian justice system allows and supports such a demand at the expense of the victims family. In this case the family of Don Edwards, former Team Canada and Buffalo Sabres goaltender. Lovie murdered Don's parents in 1991. Guest: Don and Tannis Edwards. An excruciating reality as they will again be required to prepare for a parole hearing for Lovie who has the right to read their Victims Impact Statements prior to the parole hearing (whenever he may agree to it). --------------------------------------------- Host/Content Producer – Roy Green Technical/Podcast Producer – Tom Craig Podcast Co-Producer – Matt Taylor If you enjoyed the podcast, tell a friend!
