A Pair of By-Elections --- The Not Quite Daily Beaver Friday Morning Bite Episode 31

Hey Kits!

It's another episode of The Not Quite Daily Beaver, morning show... And today we just a nibble.

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 about politician making dumb moves: Victim Dan-Yell comparing the plight of the select Albertans for whom she speaks to that of Indigenous Canadians, Jagmeet Singh's latest empty threat, and Minister Mary Ng's conflict of interest; our exasperation with the Conservative victim narrative and pity party; the Prime Minister making it clear that Canada is not broken; provinces not being transparent about flu death rates among children; COVID in China; an announcement delay in expanding MAID; the housing and shelter shortage; and viewer / listener feedback.

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