British Columbia was one of the hardest hit provinces in Canada over the pandemic. Being the only province with an NDP government, the socialist style party were quick and heavy handed in their restrictions. Heather Brown, someone I grew up with in my home city of Kamloops, BC, brings her perspective to the show. Including the failure of the local hospital when her father took ill with covid. Heather became instrumental in the local pushback against mandates, restrictions and lockdowns. She continues on today in full anticipation for a return to them in the fall. But, this time, she's more hopeful for a stronger people's movement against the governmental overreach they've are endured. ----- Subscribe to the substack for a written companion to each episode including this one!

Kendra Coombes is at her home with her newborn in Scotchtown, recovering from a cesarean section earlier in July. The Cape Breton Centre-Whitney Pier representative was hoping to be able to attend the summer sitting of the house virtually. A similar accommodation was made earlier this summer for a committee appearance after her doctor recommended against the five-hour drive to Halifax. A poll was taken of all Members of the Legislative Assembly last weekend to allow that to happen for the opening of the session July 26th, 2022. It needed unanimous acceptance to happen, and at least one person voted "no". A resolution was introduced and accepted as the session got underway to allow Coombes to join virtually. But there are other concerns about access and representation according to the New Democrat member who noted her first child was born while she was a councillor at Cape Breton Regional Municipality. And she says the report suggesting salary increases also makes recommendations on that topic too.

The Herle Burly was created by Air Quotes Media with support from our presenting sponsor TELUS, as well as CN Rail and Google Canada.Herle Burly-ites, Philippe J. Fournier is here! I'm sure a good lot of you know who Philippe is and have read his work and analysis, but for our listeners who haven't, Philippe is the creator of 338Canada, the statistical model of electoral projection based on historical trends, opinion polls and demographic data. He deconstructs and analyzes Canadian politics with the eyes of a scientist. Not at all shocking because, by day, Philippe teaches astrophysics at Cégep de Saint-Laurent! So today – and this is despite my own deep, deeeeep knowledge of astrophysics – we are going to geek out about polling and electoral data. We'll talk about the federal race… What the different voter coalitions are… What it is that makes the Liberal vote so damn efficient. We'll talk about Poilievre and the kind of coalition he's trying to build… Where he needs his votes to come from in order to be PM… And whether his leadership campaign poses a risk to his electoral prospects. And then we'll talk about Singh and the NDP… What impact this accord with the Liberals is having on their support… And where the problem is translating feel good vibes for Singh, into votes. Finally, we'll chat about the outlook for the upcoming Quebec election.Thank you for joining us on #TheHerleBurly podcast.

Kim Wheeler is a Mohawk/Anishinaabe kwe who has brought positive Indigenous stories to the mainstream and Indigenous media since 1993. A Sixties Scoop survivor, Kim shared her own story in the radio documentary “Blood Money” for CBC's The Doc Project. This powerful, emotional, and raw documentary won her her third imagineNATIVE award for radio work. Find out more about that HERE. Currently Kim hosts her own show on SiriusXM - The Kim Wheeler Show. She was an integral part of the team that re-branded Canadian Indigenous Peoples Radio to The Indigiverse on SiriusXM. The channel's town hall special Turtle Island Talks was awarded the 2021 Broadcast Dialogue's best multi-market program for a large market -- less than a year before she came onboard. Find out more about Kim's show HERE. Kim works from her treehouse media office in Winnipeg on Treaty One Territory where she manages communications for the Indigenous Screen Office, curates a yearly festival for the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, teaches podcasting at the National Screen Institute, produces and hosts the podcast Auntie Up!, lectures at universities and writes for a variety of mediums. Listen to the Auntie Up! Podcast HERE. She began her journalism career at the Edmonton Journal, then worked at the Canadian Press/Broadcast News for five years before leaving to pursue marketing and publicity work with the National Film Board. She joined CBC Radio One in 2008 and produced four seasons of ReVision Quest; a radio talk show that mixed personal storytelling, current affairs, interviews and comedy while exploring issues affecting Indigenous Peoples. She was awarded a silver medal at New York Festivals and two imagineNATIVE awards for her work on ReVision Quest. She was also short-listed for a Prix Italia for her work on Indian Summer, a series that told stories and shared songs of Indigenous musicians with host Wab Kinew (Yes, the leader of Manitoba's NDP). Kim created and produced Ab-Originals – a weekly podcast of the hottest Aboriginal music in Canada on CBC Radio 3 for three seasons with a multitude of hosts. It was the precursor for CBC Music's Indigenous music community where she developed digital content and programmed a 24/7 music channel. She grew the community from under 90 artists to over 250 Indigenous artists from 2010-2013. Kim currently sits on the advisory committee for the Indigenous Music Awards and was previously a board member and music programmer for Aboriginal Music Week. She has also very recently been named to the Coach House Books Indigenous advisory board. She was the original writer/researcher for Eagle Vision's' Taken series about missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls; has authored several Indigenous role model biography booklets; has led production teams to Standing Rock, Six Nations, and Haida Gwaii; and wrote an Indigenous style guide for Chatelaine magazine. Kim was instrumental in language and policy changes at the CBC with the closing of website comments on Indigenous stories and the capitalization and move to Indigenous instead of Aboriginal. She was also part of a small group of Indigenous employees who persuaded the public broadcaster to use the term ‘survivors' instead of ‘former students' when it came to residential school stories. She was a producer on Unreserved, the weekly hour-long show, hosted by Rosanna Deerchild. Unreserved ran regionally for 11 months before being picked up by the network to run nationally. In the three seasons on the show her work garnered her an Indigenous Music Award, a New York Festivals award and a Gabriel honourable mention. Learn more about your ad choices.

The majority of Canadians did not vote for Justin Trudeau in the last election. In fact, the Liberals won with the smallest share of the vote in Canadian history. It's clear many Canadians do not approve of Trudeau running the country – this means the next Conservative leader has a very good chance of beating Trudeau in the next election. However, the same was said during the last three elections. Conservatives have come very close in every election since 2015 but have fallen short in dethroning Trudeau. What's the path to victory for the Conservatives? In recent weeks, we've started hearing the same failed strategy from the failed backrooms of the party. They argue that the party should become more like the Liberals and NDP – embrace leftist progressive ideologies in order to win. They think the Conservatives should be fiscally prudent and socially woke. These strategists are wrong. We just need to look at how poorly Erin O'Toole performed in the last election to see that this strategy did not work. On this episode of The Candice Malcolm Show, Candice is joined by pollster Hamish Marshall to discuss why the Red Tory/Blue Liberal strategy just doesn't work, why O'Toole failed despite his best attempts to woo leftist voters and what the next Conservative leader needs to do in order to win.

The Canadian Government has gone one crisis bridge too far. Faltering across the board - the EMA inquiry is a disaster. Liberal and NDP caucus rumored on the verge of revolt. State wants to mandate 3rd shots as "fully vaccinated". Their leaders can't show their faces anywhere in public without being confronted by furious mobs of people. The momentum has shifted. The Trucker convoy may very well be the end of this regime that shot itself in the belly to spite its people, crawled away for months and now is bleeding out, hiding behind a tree with nowhere left to go. No terrorists found, no answers given, cost of living skyrocketing. They are bleeding and wobbly. Hit harder. No daylight.
Names for both the NDP and Liberal leadership contests - permanent and interim - emerge.

Read along to practice your English and to learn the English phrases TO DO THE TRICK and TO PLAY A TRICKIn this English lesson, I wanted to help you learn the English phrase to do the trick. When we say that something will do the trick, we mean that it will work in a certain situation. Here's a good example. Sometimes when I'm eating a bag of chips, I don't eat all of them and I want to close the bag, so I just put a clothespin on it because a clothespin will do the trick. A clothespin will keep the bag of chips closed, and then I don't have to worry about the chips going stale. So when you say that something will do the trick, it simply means that it will work. It will do something in a certain situation to help you out.WANT FREE ENGLISH LESSONS? GO TO YOUTUBE AND SEARCH, "BOB THE CANADIAN"If you enjoy these lessons please consider supporting me at: http://www.patreon.com/bobthecanadianThe other phrase I wanted to teach you today is the phrase to play a trick. When you play a trick on someone, it means that you do something to trick them. Here's a little trick we play on people at school. Sometimes teachers will accidentally leave their keys somewhere, so if I find another teacher's keys, I put them in the freezer in the staff room. I like to play a trick on my colleagues. So it's just something silly and funny that I do. And there's other things like that that people sometimes do at work. Sometimes we call them practical jokes as well. But when you put someone's keys in the freezer just for fun, and then on the board, we write, "Cool keys." There's a little whiteboard in the staff room. We write, "Cool keys," to give them a hint that someone is playing a trick on them.So to review, when something will do the trick, it means it will work in a certain situation. I could put the words on the screen, but having a piece of paper does the trick for me. And when you play a trick on someone, it means you just do something funny, something to make maybe yourself laugh, and hopefully them laugh a little bit as well.Hey, let's look at a comment, though, from a previous video. This comment is from Olivia. "Hi, Bob," or, "Hi, Teacher Bob. Drink more water and take care of yourself. I hope you feel better soon." And my response is, "I drank lots of water and lots of tea with honey. That seemed to do the trick."See how I used the phrase there? Anyways, thanks Olivia for that comment. And that was a comment from my last video, where I basically just said, "Hey, I'm gonna be making lessons again starting on Friday," and that's hopefully when you're watching this.So it's an election day in Ontario, Canada. Today, there is an election. If we walk over here, you'll see that this person supports the NDP party. It looks like Dave Augustyn is running for the NDP party. And if we go way over here, in just a moment, we'll see another sign. People in Ontario sometimes will put signs on their yard, kind of letting people know who they're voting for. The candidates have all done, there's been debates. The candidates have all visited various towns and cities in Ontario to kind of get their message out and to ask people to vote for them, and today is the day where we need to vote. I'll be voting later today. It's cool to be able to go and vote.There's another guy right here. So this is the Progressive Conservative Party, and this is the person who's running there. He doesn't live here. This is just a house where someone who supports that party is going to vote for that person, so they've simply put a little sign on their lawn so that their friends and neighbors can see that that's the person they're going to vote for. It's kind of just a way to give them some support.Support the show
