(Recording Dates: March 6 & 7, 2022)

In this episode:

We have our coast to coast to coast COVID round-up, discuss the invocation of the Emergencies Act to put an end to the CPC Convoy, and touch upon about the only news story that could make the Convoy already seem like long ago’s news.

Of course we’ll finish it off with our blog page, Twitter feed, and podcast listener feedback.

And once again, since it’s been a veritable firehose of news for the past six weeks or so that twist on the cool news, I've been promising is yet again, a promise delayed.

Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do a something. Because we believe that “Democracy Is Something You Do”, this week we have two suggestions for things you could do:

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
