Beaver Bites: Aaaaaand They’re Off!
Recording Date: March 10, 2022
The rules have been made public, the two biggest names expected are now officially in, and we even have a surprise entry, but the Conservative Party of Canada’s leadership race is now on.
The Eager Beaver and Mr. Grizzly share their thoughts.
Minimal script, flying without a net.
1) If you want to let a certain nation know you're not on their side, feel free to e-mail a package of sunflower seeds to:
ATTN: Ambassador Alexander Darchiev
Embassy of (you know where)
285 Charlotte St, Ottawa, ON K1N 8L5
2) If good care and treatment of animals is a cause dear to your heart, Veterinarians Without Borders Canada is working with Ukraine animal shelters to get them emergency food, water, and the basics for survival. If you can help, the link will direct you to their donation page.
Finally, on a lighter note, we want to know: What are you looking forward to most this spring?
You can do that via our show’s Facebook blog page on via Twitter @TrueEager.
Of course, retweets, shares, gentle corrections, constructive criticism, compliments, tips, requests and positive reviews (if you think we deserve some stars, please rate us) are always welcome.
Until then, be kind to, and gentle with, yourselves,
Your Eager Beaver
