GORMLEY - ALEXIS KOLODY - FEBRUARY 23

Alexis Kolody was sexually assaulted in 2017 after falling asleep at a party, and asked the courts to lift the automatic publication ban on her identity because she wants to help end the stigma around sexual assault and let others to know it's alright to speak about what happened to them. Her attacker appealed his conviction and the case made its way to Canada's supreme court, where the order for a new trial was struck down. The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal dismissed her attacker's appeal Friday, and Kolody joins Gormley to tell us how she's feeling at the end of her five-year fight for justice.

GORMLEY - HEIDI MONRO & SCOTT PATRICK - FEBRUARY 23

Heidi Munro & Scott Patrick are a music performing duo who recently had the concert they filmed for SaskTel Max pulled from programming. It was pulled because SaskTel received complaints the videos did not follow COVID-19 public health guidelines, as they were not wearing masks. Although they were paid for the performance, the airing of the concert would have meant exposure and promotion for them - something they need during a time where their industry is struggling. The pair says as artists they've been working with regulations as much as possible during the pandemic - but the rules keep changing. This leaves them frustrated and with difficulties to plan for the future. Heidi and Scott join Gormley to discuss the work that they say needs to be done to save the arts.

GORMLEY - JOHN IVISON - FEBRUARY 23

Yesterday, Canadian MPs voted to acknowledge China's genocide against its Uyghur Muslim population, and called on the government to officially adopt the position. While the vote may anger China, getting the Trudeau government to take meaningful action may be more difficult, as the Cabinet abstained from the vote and Trudeau has thus far refused to use the term genocide to describe the situation in China. National Post Columnist John Ivison says the vote may have been counterproductive, and he joins Gormley to explain why.

GORMLEY - RICK VAN DUYVENDYK - FEBRUARY 22

Demand for gardening supplies and seeds is increasing across the board according to Rick Van Duyvendyk with Dutch Growers. Rick joins Gormley to tell us why there's such a huge demand for gardening supplies this year, and whether or not suppliers and greenhouses are going to be able to keep up with demand.

GORMLEY - LLOYD SANDERCOCK - FEBRUARY 22

Lloyd Sandercock is a Saskatchewan snowbird currently living in Yuma, Arizona along with his wife. Sandercock says they've already received the first dose of the Moderna vaccine in a very simple and free process, and are awaiting an appointment for their second immunizations. Although they have a flight home scheduled, Sandercock says he's not sure whether they'll take that flight due to the travel restrictions imposed at the Canadian border. While snowbirds and travelers have received criticism for international trips during the pandemic, is that criticism really due to real concerns about public health, or is it simple rooted in envy?

GORMLEY - JOHN CARPAY - FEBRUARY 22

The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms has filed a lawsuit against the federal government, alleging that the travel restrictions requiring air travelers to quarantine at an approved hotel at their own expense. The JCCF says the restrictions are a clear violation of the Charter, though some legal experts have suggested the regulations might stand up against a legal challenge. JCCF President John Carpay joins Gormley to tell us more.
