Today’s podcast: The National Capital Commission is in the process of renaming the Sir John A MacDonald Parkway in Ottawa. Three City of Ottawa council members proposed the name change in the spirit of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples because MacDonald authorized the creation of residential schools when he served as Canada's first prime minister in the 1880's. The NCC announced Thursday the new name of the parkway will be Indigenous and the name will be made public on September 30, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Also: guest view of $2.8 billion agreement between the federal government and B.C. Indigenous Band whose children attended residential schools as day scholars. Guest: Chief Cadmus Delorme. Chief of Cowesses First Nation Saskatchewan. It is at Cowessess in 2021 that ground radar discovered what are believed to be 751 unmarked graves at the site of the former Marival Indian Residential School which operated from 1899 to 1997 Tom, an RGS listener in Manitoba sent email about his increased costs dealing with energy like his natural gas heating bill. For December $526 with the carbon tax component $96 and his rebate cheque from the federal government at $104. And, writes Tom "there's still the hidden portion of the tax in my gasoline, at the grocery store, drug store, clothing store, etc purchases." Tom continues "in my (humble) opinion as a senior citizen on a rather limited income the carbon tax is just as insidious to the economy as plastic pollution is to the environment." Tom's email is similar to others which have arrived from all demographics and regions of Canada. Guest: Dan McTeague. President: Canadians for Affordable Energy who warns Canadians we will again see the $2 per litre gasoline price by May/June and diesel at $2.60. While inflationary pressure is easing the Bank of Canada is nevertheless expected to raise its interest rate one more time next week. After that? Will Canada experience recessionary pressure for the balance of the calendar year? Guest: Professor Eric Kam. Professor of Macroeconomics at Metropolitan University in Toronto. Canada announces 200 Senator Armoured Personnel Carriers (suited for police operations more than militaryh) will be shipped to Ukraine's military along with 39 Armoured Combat Support Vehicles (originally intended for the CAF). Justin Trudeau also mused about sending Canadian Leopard battle tanks to Ukraine. However, many of the Canadian Leopards are reporterd to be in sufficient disrepair to not be battle-worthy. What is our guest's view of Canada's support of Ukraine militarily and the state of readiness of the CAF should the Canadian military be called on to defend Canada? Guest: General Rick Hillier. Former Chief of the Defence Staff (Canada's top military officer). --------------------------------------------- Host/Content Producer – Roy Green Technical/Podcast Producer – Tom McKay Podcast Co-Producer – Matt Taylor If you enjoyed the podcast, tell a friend!
