With a majority win for Francois Legault's CAQ in Quebec and one for Doug Ford's PCs earlier this year, that's two of Canada's most populous provinces where provincial Liberals have been steamrolled. Pollster Nik Nanos and CTVNews.ca's Michael Stittle discuss what this could mean for the federation. You don't want to miss Nik's latest seat projections, which show Conservative support is strengthening in key battlegrounds and which ridings that were awash in Liberal red in the last election are now too close to call. And it's been 5 years since Jagmeet Singh became leader of the NDP. Nik looks at where he and the party are now compared to back then when it comes to his party's brand, and what Canadians think of his leadership. Correction: Seat-count projections show the Green Party winning two ridings, and 57 ridings are too close to call.

At Don't Call Me Resilient, we've been busy planning season 4 of the podcast, which starts to roll out in November. We're even starting to think about season 5. But we decided to stop production to talk about something we felt we couldn't ignore.We've watched this incredible spectacle around the Queen's death and public outpouring of support and love for the British monarchy.Here in Canada, Queen Elizabeth was the official head of state and her funeral this week was made a federal holiday. In Ontario, the Minister of Education directed schools to conduct a moment of silence “to recognize the profound impact of Queen Elizabeth II's lifelong and unwavering devotion to public service.”And yet next week, those same children will be exploring the history of Indian Residential Schools and the immense ongoing damage of that system — started and long supported by the Crown.In the middle of this outpouring of love and grief for the Queen — and the monarchy she represented — not everyone is feeling it. Not everyone wants to mourn or honour her or what she represents.And there are a lot of reasons why.For example, the head of the Assembly of First Nations, RoseAnne Archibald told CTV News that the Royal Family should apologize for the failures of the Crown …“particularly for the destructiveness of colonization on First Nations people.”Another example came from Uju Anya, professor at Carnegie Mellon University, who posted a tweet in which she identified the Queen as overseeing a “thieving raping genocidal empire.”To explore these ideas further, we reached out to two scholars who are regular contributors to Don't Call Me Resilient. Both say that the Queen's death could be a uniting moment of dissent for people from current and former colonies.Veldon Coburn is Assistant Professor at the Institute of Indigenous Research and Studies at the University of Ottawa where he teaches a class called Colonialism, Territory & Treaties. He is Anishinaabe, Algonquin from Pikwàkanagàn First Nation and the co-editor of Capitalism and Dispossession.Cheryl Thompson is Assistant Professor of media and culture at the School of Performance and the Director of the Laboratory for Black Creativity at Toronto Metropolitan University.

Host Arlene Bynon in conversation with marketing analyst, Elissa Freeman about news Bell Media Executive Michael Melling is taking a leave of absence for his role in the departure of Lisa LaFlamme from CTV News.
Guest: Amanda Watson, senior lecturer and sociologist at Simon Fraser University It's been two weeks since journalist Lisa LaFlamme announced she'd been let go from her job as chief news anchor and senior editor at CTV National News. The decision came two years before LaFlamme's contract was up and despite the fact she presided over one of Canada's most watched newscasts. The network said a “business decision” and “changing viewer habits” inspired the action, but many aren't buying it. We take a look at how LaFlamme's dismissal has sparked a national conversation on sexism and age discrimination in the media and other workplaces. This episode was produced by Saba Eitizaz, Alexis Green and Paulo Marques Audio Sources: CTV News, Twitter
Dove put out an ad campaign this week talking about how everyone should be supporting going grey and that women are, "being edged out of the workplace" because of their hair colour. This comes after long time CTV News anchor, Lisa LaFlamme, was let go from the company stating that it was a, "business decision." People are seeing this as a bit of a wink and jab at Bell Media over their firing of LaFlamme and people are beginning to boycott the media company. Is this what Dove was after? Elissa Freeman, Communications Strategist and Pop Culture Expert, joined Alex to discuss this.

Let’s start today with our friends from the North… https://thepostmillennial.com/trudeau-liberals-ban-on-handgun-imports-set-to-take-effect-august-19?utm_campaign=64487 Trudeau Liberals' ban on handgun imports set to take effect August 19 In May, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed that his government would be moving to implement a national freeze on handgun ownership, essentially making it impossible to buy, sell, transfer, or import of firearms in Canada. On Friday, the Liberals announced that the temporary ban on handgun imports would be taking effect on August 18 as a "stopgap" while the more comprehensive national freeze moves through the legislative process. Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino and Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly held a joint press conference in Etobicoke on Friday to discuss the move, which according to CTV News, was pushed through without the approval of Parliament. "There's no doubt that there is a very pressing issue that lies before us," Mendicino began, "and that is the need, the necessity to eradicate gun violence, one of the most pernicious and complex social harms that we see visited upon our communities every day." He went on to announce that in order to hasten the implementation of the handgun freeze laid out in Bill C-21, "nearly all individuals and businesses in Canada will be banned from importing handguns" beginning August 19. Joly explained that as foreign minister, she has "the authority to deny any import or export permit application that is contrary to Canada's security." She noted that when Trudeau announced the freeze in May, there was an "uptick" in guns being purchased by Canadians. "We want to prevent that," she said, explaining that since most guns in Canada are not made in Canada, implementing a ban on imports would effectively ensure no new guns are purchased legally. The move to ban handguns has faced pushback from many who question its effectiveness. In 2019, for example, Vancouver police Chief Adam Palmer said that Canada already had very strong firearms regulations in place and that no further action was required. He added that the vast majority of gun crimes, especially those with handguns, are committed using illegal guns, thus it makes very little sense to ban an already prohibited weapon. https://www.theepochtimes.com/southern-california-city-to-consider-banning-abortions-declaring-sanctuary-for-life_4646733.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport California City to Consider Banning Abortions, Declaring ‘Sanctuary for Life’ Officials in the City of San Clemente, California, will consider a resolution Aug. 16 that would ban abortion and declare the city a “sanctuary for life.” The resolution defines the beginning of human life to be the moment of conception and would make it the city’s declared duty to protect that life until natural death. If passed, it would declare the city’s support for the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent overturning of Roe v. Wade and ban the act of abortion, abortion clinics, and abortion pills in the city. The resolution allows exceptions for women at risk of losing their lives in the process of birth and for victims of rape or incest. It also suggests that human beings do not have the authority to decide to end the life of the unborn. “We believe that life is God-ordained and God is the author and finisher of every life,” the resolution states. “[A]s a city council, we will protect and sustain life at every stage.” The resolution cites Poelker v. Doe of 1977—a legal precedent that allowed a city in Missouri to refuse to provide publicly funded hospitals for nontherapeutic abortions even though it provided facilities for childbirth—saying that “the Constitution does not forbid a state or county or city … from expressing a preference for normal childbirth instead of abortion.” Councilman Steve Knoblock, who proposed the resolution, hopes it will help to initiate change within California, considering the current trend in pro-abortion laws. “The ultimate purpose of government is to protect the life and liberty of humans including unborn individuals,” Knoblock told The Epoch Times in an interview. Councilwoman Laura Ferguson told the City News Service Aug. 3 that it was a “distraction” from more important topics in the city—such as homelessness—when abortion is “something already legal and codified in state law.” A spokesperson for the state Attorney General Rob Bonta’s office said access to abortion remains fully protected under state law, according to the City News Service. Mario Mainero, Associate Dean for Chapman University’s law school, told The Epoch Times this resolution would have no legal effect because state law pre-empts city law. “California state law permits abortion up to fetal viability and no city can counter that,” Mario said. “They can’t ban abortion clinics because that would violate state law and they can’t do that.” Armored Republic The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights.

Greg Abbott after second bus of migrants arrives: ‘This is horrific’ New York City Mayor Eric Adams blasted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday after a second bus full of illegal migrants arrived at his doorstep. Adams gave a news conference Sunday morning at the Port Authority where he greeted an incoming bus of around 40 migrants — only 14 of whom disembarked in the Big Apple. https://nypost.com/2022/08/05/nyc-mayor-adams-request-photos-of-city-job-applicants-to-increase-diversity/ Adams asks for photos of city job applicants in effort to increase diversity: report Mayor Eric Adams is collecting headshots of potential city workers in a thinly-veiled effort to increase diversity, according to a new report. Adams has requested city agencies to provide photographs of potential hires to City Hall as candidates go through the interview process for city jobs ranging from assistant commissioner to departmental press secretary, Politico reported Thursday. Several unnamed city officials told the outlet that the request is clearly an effort to hire more diverse staffers. However, Adams maintains that it will merely help him recognize his employees in the sprawling city workforce. “Everyone knew what it was. There was no question. It was the first thing everybody said: ‘We’re going to start counting complexions now,’” one recently-departed City Hall employee told Politico. The majority of the officials interviewed by the outlet — who requested anonymity to speak freely about the internal measure — said they supported a more diverse workforce but worried the practice is already causing the Adams administration to make hiring decisions with a greater emphasis on race and ethnicity than merit. Compounding the issue, nearly every official Politico spoke to also said the headshot request created another snag in the drawn-out hiring process — straying away from the mayor’s signature motto of “get stuff done” at a time when city job vacancies are unusually high. About 8 percent of municipal jobs were vacant as of April, according to data from the Citizens Budget Commission. Politico obtained emails sent by the mayor’s team to about a dozen high-ranking officials at other city agencies asking them to submit headshots of people they hope to employ for Adam’s own review. One official said they were verbally told that Adams wanted agencies to hire people who “reflect the constituencies we serve.” Hiring managers aren’t expected to ask job candidates for headshots, but instead grab photos from social media sites like LinkedIn to appease the mayor’s request, two sources told Politico. https://www.outkick.com/jon-gruden-email-leak-hit-job-agent/ JON GRUDEN’S AGENT BELIEVES FORMER COACH’S EMAILS BEING LEAKED WAS A HIT JOB: ‘HE’S NOT A RACIST’ We’re approaching the one-year mark since Jon Gruden was forced to resign as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders following a scandal involving an email leak, but his agent is still going to bat for his client, now calling it “a hit job.” Gruden stepped down as the Raiders’ head coach in October of 2021 after emails directed at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell were leaked that contained racist and homophobic comments. The emails were discovered in what was a league investigation into the Washington Commanders’ workplace culture. An email reportedly implied that Gruden was annoyed that the NFL forced the then St. Louis Rams to draft “queers,” which is a reference to the team drafting Michael Sam in 2014. Gruden reportedly sent an email making fun of the size of NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith’s lips. “Dumboriss Smith has lips the size of Michelin tires,” the email from 2011 reportedly read. The collection of emails dated back to Gruden’s time at ESPN, before he joined the Raiders for his second stint as head coach. With the original investigation not directly pointed at Gruden, his agent Bob LaMonte is convinced the NFL was simply out to get his client. “I can tell you right now that was a hit job,” Bob LaMonte told JoeBucsFan.com. “Why now, of all things, does that come out in an investigation that had already gone away? It was 10 years ago. And then why Jon and why the Raiders? He wasn’t even in the league at the time of those e-mails…That’s the tragedy of it. You can say what you want, but if anyone really understands Jon, they know he’s not a racist. That’s quite obvious.” LaMonte’s comments about Gruden echo those of legendary college football broadcaster, Brent Musburger, who was also the former radio broadcaster for the Raiders. Report: Raiders Brent Musburger Breaks Silence on Jon Gruden- Play 2:40 - 5:29 Gruden has since filed a lawsuit against the NFL and Goodell as he believes the league sought to ruin his career and make an example of him. The NFL looked to dismiss the case, but a judge denied that ask. Now, let’s end things on more of a positive or interesting note, because not everything is bad news out there: https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/eyes-up-for-perseid-meteor-shower-and-saturn-show/ The PUR-SEE-IDS meteor shower is one of the best shows all year for “shooting stars”. Though the Perseids have been active since July 14, the frequency of meteors hurtling through the sky is now heating up this week. In fact, Perseids can produce up to 150 meteors per hour under dark skies! Scientists say the peak time to view this shower will be on the night of Thursday, August 11 & Friday the 12th. The full moon that night may make it tougher to spot the meteors, so train your eyes toward the darker areas and watch closely. This week is also one of the best times to see the ringed planet of Saturn in dramatic fashion. On Sunday, August 14, the giant world will line up with the Earth and the Sun. The alignment is called an “opposition.” Saturn will be closer to Earth than it has been in more than a year. If you want a peek at the planet, look for a golden yellow light shining steadily in the east after sunset. With binoculars, you may even see the spectacular Saturn rings.
