Tardy Parties — The Not Quite Daily Beaver Morning Show (A Monday Morning Beaver Bite)


Hey Kits!

It's a new year, a new season, and a new episode of The Not Quite Daily Beaver Morning Show... And today, we have a nice Bite for you to enjoy.

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 Turks and Caicos; Canadians who do us proud, especially Alpine Ski athlete Valérie Grenier who became the first Canadian woman to win a World Cup ski race in 7 years, and first Canadian to win a Giant Slalom since 1974; Damar Hamlin's recovery and the NFL marketing machine; Jordan 'Piffle' Peterson: "the stupid person's smart person"; Brazil's January 6th-ish moment; 8 Ontario Cabinet Ministers, including the Solicitor General, being among nearly 100 Ontario election candidates who are late -- for no apparent reason -- getting their finance expense reports in to Elections Ontario; the government of Newfoundland and Labrador making sexual assault stereotype-busting training mandatory for provincial judges, and; some health news, including reports that flu appears to be on the decline in Canada.

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

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.
