Happy Canada Day everyone. What a privilege it is to be Canadian.
Midweek and I’ve been paying close attention to what is being said post-Brexit.
Here’s what I tweeted earlier today (@theroygreenshow).
Stunning to hear media/political elites explain Brexit vote. To each other. Stop your incestuous chatter and start listening. To the people.”
It was what a major international political figure had to say repeatedly yesterday which struck me as patently outrageous and dismissive. I’ll speak to that on the weekend.
The elites also decry the notion of a referendum. Imagine that. The no-elites carrying the day. How “frightfully awful.” If only we could do away with those pesky elections.
Much to talk about this Canada Day weekend. Working on it now.
Larry Pratt, founder of Gun Owners of America and Tony Bernardo, executive director of CILA join me today, along with Conservative MP Bob Zimmer of B.C. who introduced the e-petition to parliament, signed by 25,000+ wanting the sale of the AR-15 made non-restricted again in Canada. I think we should hear from gun owners and representatives of gun owners in the U.S. and Canada.
Lord Christopher Monckton reacts to the Brexit vote. And he has a few things to say about the future of England and the resignation of David Cameron. We had our own versions of Brexit in Canada. Quexits in 1980 and 1995 and the issue of where people feel more closely aligned seems never far from discussion. I’ll be asking you if you identify most with your province, region, or Canada.
Do you think David Stephan being sentenced to four months in prison is correct? The crown would have been happier with four years for David Stephan and his wife Colett in the death of their 19 month old son Ezekial. Criminal lawyer David Butt joins me and we’ll take your calls. There’s much emotion and opinion on Mr. Justice Jerke’s decisions.
Listener Kathy joins us to personally read her email which generated so much response yesterday, as it deserved to.
Wendy Bell received 21 Emmy Awards as a television news anchor. She was fired by her Pittsburgh station after Ms. Bell was accused of having posted a racist comment on Facebook. Wendy Bell is suing her former employer arguing she was fired because she is white. I’ll be speaking to Wendy Bell’s lawyer Sam Cordes.
and the salary increases voted themselves by the regional council of Wood Buffalo in Alberta, which includes Fort McMurray have raised more than a few eyebrows. The timing is atrocious and more than doubling part time councillor salaries, while more than quadrupling the part time salaries of the three council members who become full time, from $36,000 to $150,000 is, pun intended, rich. It’s the highest base salary for any member of any city council in Canada, far surpassing Toronto council base salaries, for example.
Much to talk about today. Join us.
