GORMLEY - 'FINANCIAL PLANNER' LEGISLATION - DECEMBER 5

The provincial government introduced legislation this week aiming to restrict the usage of the "financial planner" and "financial advisor" title, which are currently not restricted in Saskatchewan. The Financial Planners and Financial Advisors Act is modelled on legislation passed in Ontario last spring, and aims to protect consumers by defining the two titles under law and ensuring only those who hold approved credentials can use them. PF Canada has welcomed the new rules, saying the law will improve consumer protection and prevent customers from receiving amateur financial advice from a self-proclaimed professional. Cary List is President and CEO of FP Canada, and he joins Gormley to discuss the changes and the benefits they'll have.

GORMLEY - AI CAMERAS FOR CELL PHONE USE AT THE WHEEL - DECEMBER 4

Australia is rolling out a suite of AI-equipped cameras that can automatically detect when a driver uses their cell phone while behind the wheel. The cameras use automated high-definition cameras to look inside your car, and then artificial intelligence scans the image looking for a cell phone. Unlike photo radar, which only looks at licence plates, these cameras are taking high-resolution pictures of the insides of passing cars, and are set up on overpasses to observe at a downward angle. Some are already criticizing the new program, saying it might be used to generate nearly a billion in revenue each year, while others are calling it an invasion of privacy and worry about how the images will be stored, archived, and accessed by police. What do you think? Is the extra safety benefit worth the potential risks? Should we start a similar program here? Give us a call at 1-877-332-8255 and join the conversation!

GORMLEY - JOHN SHANNON - DECEMBER 4

With Bill Peters' removal as head coach of the Calgary Flames, has the dam broken when it comes to abusive behavior by coaches? Peters' departure from the team followed accusations by former NHL player Akim Aliu, alleging Peters used racial slurs against him, and other players have since come forward and accused Peters of physical abuse as well. After meeting with NHL officials Tuesday, Aliu released a statement saying "I think there is some big change coming. It's long overdue." Will we see other high-profile coaches fired? Was Peters' behavior typical of the 'old-school' coaching style? To help answer these questions, Gormley is joined by legendary hockey commentator and analyst John Shannon. What do you think about the NHL's series of coaching scandals? Give us a call at 1-877-332-8255 and join the conversation!
