Gormley - Scott Banda & Open Lines - Thursday, December 2nd, 2021

Federated Co-operatives Ltd. is making a big move by acquiring 181 Husky retail fuel sites across Western Canada, the largest retail purchase in the company's history. CEO Scott Banda joins John to tell us what went into the decision and what this means for the future of Co-op.

A Georgia judge, in a moment of humour, wrote a one-page decision banning 'Elf on the Shelf' from Cobb County. The Christmas trend began in 2005, and has since become an annual tradition in many homes. But according to Judge Robert Leonard II, the decision was "a gift to tired parents" who are tired of staying up late and thinking of creative places for their "elf" to appear and to children who get distressed when the elf doesn't move. Do you have an elf on your shelf at home? Is it a fun tradition, or a bit of a burden? Call 1-877-332-8255 and let us know!

Should Canada lower its voting age? We've done it before in 1970, when the voting age was dropped to 18 from 21. Now, a group of children is children have filed an application at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to challenge the voting age. Do you think lowering the voting age is a good idea, or are children not politically literate enough to help choose our governments? Call 1-877-332-8255 and join the conversation!

Gormley - Donna Harpauer - Thursday, December 2nd, 2021

Yesterday, Gormley caught up with APAS VP Ian Boxall, who accused the Province of throwing producers under the bus and blaming our deficit on large payouts from crop insurance despite crop insurance accumulating a large surplus over previous years. Finance Minister Donna Harpauer and Agriculture Minister David Marit both fired back in a letter saying the comments from APAS were "offensive" and calling for a retraction. Harpauer joins Gormley to respond to Boxall's comments and explain just how crop insurance factors into provincial finacnes.

According to a scoop by Toronto Sun columnist Brian Lilley, the parents of a British-born terrorist dubbed "Jihadi Jack" are seeking help from the Canadian government to get their son Jack Letts out of prison in Syria and into Canada. Letts' British citizenship was revoked in 2019 after he traveled to Syria to join ISIS, but his father's Canadian citizenship mean he may technically have a claim to citizenship here despite never residing in Canada.

Gormley - John Ivison - Wednesday, December 1st, 2021

National Post Columnist John Ivison says the Trudeau government is taking extraordinary steps to avoid accountability in Parliament, notably by introducing legislation before the standing committees meant to scrutinize and amend the bills have even been established. According to Ivison, "the Liberals do not want committees to sit because they are an inconvenience to passing all the brilliant legislation that the government believes is so exquisitely crafted, it cannot be improved." Ivison says this is not how the process is meant to work, and he joins Gormley to tell us more about the issues with Parliament.
