Morneau-no-no — The Not Quite Daily Beaver Morning Show (Just a Nibble)


Hey Kits!

It's a new year, a new season, and a new episode of The Not Quite Daily Beaver Morning Show!

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 7 Eastern, we livestream a (sometimes) quick take on the news, in addition to our usual formats.

On today's episode, we talk the North American Leaders Summit; former Finance Minister Bill Morneau's confused book launch tour; the Transport Committee seeking to speak to leaders at SunWing and VIA Rail; and we touch briefly upon the F-35 purchase announced and the federal government's increase in contracts to McKinsey.

Our morning show is the purrr-fect thing for busy Kits who are on-the-go, but still want to stay engaged.

PS: This episode is also available on our new True North Eager Beaver Media YouTube channel at [https://youtu.be/KIxmYrXfxBo].

PPS: If you wish to encourage us to do more, leave us a positive review and stars on Apple Podcasts and/or buy us a cup of coffee. Just go to [https://ko-fi.com/eagerbeaver] to find your way to our tip jar.

Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something.

Because democracy is something you do...

Canadian Blood Services say that they have hundreds of missed donations due to the holiday storm that closed donor centers and mobile units. The nationwide inventory has dropped by more than 35% since October and there is a critical need for platelets for cancer patients and O-negative blood for newborns and emergencies. The CBS say its base has been shrinking, and is the lowest in decades.
