It's a new year, and our Not Quite Daily Beaver Morning Show is on its way to becoming Quite Daily indeed!
Soon, Monday through Friday, we have a (sometimes quick) daily take on the news, in addition to our usual formats.
On today's episode, we talk about men of the cloth behaving badly given the sudden resignation of influential Canadian Cardinal -- once thought of as being on the fast track to the Papacy -- Marc Ouellet, one of the 96 members of the Archdiocese of Québec City named in a sexual impropriety class action lawsuit filed by 130 individuals last summer. We also chat about efforts to extradite Johannes Rivoire from France to Canada to face charges of having abused Inuit children. We close off the show with a bit of news of the passing of two big names in hockey: Bobby Hull and Gino Odjick.
Our morning show is the purrr-fect thing for busy Kits who are on-the-go, but still want to stay engaged.

This is episode 47 of our Eager Beaver morning show.
Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something.
Because democracy is something you do...
Please take the take to sign the #BeBrave France petition to extradite Rivoire to Canada. You can do that here https://www.change.org/p/bebrave-petition-to-end-sexual-violence-against-children.
Also take some time to write your MP (and MPP too) stating that you want the elimination of the statute of limitation applying to sexual assault charges. To write your MP in Ottawa:
The House of Commons
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6
If you are writing to the Prime Minister, the address is: Office of the Prime Minister, Langevin Block, 80 Wellington Street, 2nd Floor, Ottawa, Canada, K1A 0A2. You do not have to put a stamp on your letter to an MP or to the Prime Minister.
Of course, retweets, shares, gentle corrections, constructive criticism, compliments, tips, requests, bribes to be on the show, and positive reviews (if you think we deserve some stars, please rate us) are always welcome.
You can do that via our show’s Facebook blog page, via Twitter @TrueEager, or by e-mail at TrueNorthEagerBeaver@gmail.com.
