1997 were aimed at assimilating native children into canadian coast and removed from their families. many suffered physical and sexual abuse for more than a century, 150000 were put through the system. more than 4000 deaths were confirmed in 2008. the policy was officially recognized by the authorities as genocide and the scandal. i was further grown this year with the 1st discovery of on margaret's oh. ringback i i
1:17 am
the discovery of the graves has led joy rage across the country on the calendar a day earlier this month, statues of queen victoria on queen elizabeth the 2nd were toppled by crowds chanting, no pride in genocide. some indigenous groups called for the annual celebration to be cancelled entirely non grounds being targeted that some of those who run the schools to christian churches were a tech, with several burned to the ground. the prime minister just in trudeau said the country must learn from the mistakes of the past. is difficult in moments like these to fully comprehend the decisions of the past that led to these tragedies and atrocities. but it is necessary to absorb them and understand them. to be
1:18 am
able to move forward or just incur those words aren't enough for many in the community who are demanding an apology from the pope. they hold the catholic church responsible for much of what happened and believe it has a case to answer. people are talking about wanting an apology from the pope. why do we have to before that? why, why hadn't gotten the report is not apologizing. i feel like the people who i get blog up to the polls are feeling the same way. genocide is still happening to us to the may. you know, the governments how these policies in place that don't work with us. when police do mental health checks with our people, they either die or they're thrown into the tuition where pills are wrong.
1:19 am
and if there's any children involved, they're automatically thrown into the child welfare system. so there's a lot of things we get done with the police, not taking reports seriously. and predators know that ticket target. and people in general know that they could target a floor of the week's top stories when we return in like the 2nd, the, the the, the, the, the, the, the i
1:20 am
will i so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy plantation let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, a very critical time. time to sit down and talk the ludicrous fellow, a british lawmaker. slum dana, by a tough beer company which suggest cobit vaccination,
1:21 am
is the only way to get life back to normal. although there's been a low uptake of shots by those under 30 politicians, have warned heineken commercial sense on the wrong message. the heineken really ought to consider whether the discriminating is loyal customers who may be, cannot be vaccinated for medical or other reasons. there were lots of people who can't be vaccinated and it's quite wrong that they should not be able to go into a pub and have a drink. ludicrous. i'm surprised or not making recommendations and other countries given their levels of vaccine hesitancy, will be ad comes after british ministers reportedly drew our plans for amanda tree vaccine passports to enter pubs and restaurants from the autumn. thus, despite was seen as a highly successful inoculation program,
1:22 am
but almost 35000000 already having received a shot in the u. k. but britain is far from the only country were approved vaccine pressures in full swing. the best seller trillion that's being criticized for scare tactics and for using an actor from an age group. not yet eligible for the vaccine. on top of that, the pace of inoculation in the country slow in part to to go shortage. is something the critic say mix these campaigns even less appropriate. we pump the issue up for debate. real worry for me about this is you're going to create a to take society that will be those people who com, to have a vaccine for medical reasons or maybe for their own reasons, or maybe because they younger and they haven't seen invite yet. there is therefore
1:23 am
going to be a to, to, is this, this is not going to create to, to the system. that's absolute. poppycock, people who can't have it for medical reasons can have a medical exemption. but if they just choose not to have it, they're creating their own apartheid. they have a duty, particularly young people now to do their bids for the rest of society, for those who need the vaccine. so you should be the law generally. the role numbers for population who have been magically advised, half of actually she doesn't actually work. they don't stall transmission. i'm just touching my blog. i suggest you check the wells role bar war. i'm very suggest you stop spreading misinformation and face new jersey. you get behind this, there is a very big question over whether young people should have this faxing at all. and
1:24 am
the reason for that is actually most young people will get cobit that recover. they'll be no long term sequentially. and this is about personal choice and responsibility. i want to do all these 3 things. i could go over and have a represent, the young people have a juicy, they should get vaccination as well. no one's talking about coercion. no one's talking about monday, treat jobs. but if you know people have fallen out to life, it's coming anyway. actually we should be encouraging those people certainly are 40 to make sure they have a vaccine. i would like younger people to have it as well. but i do believe in personal choice and liberty, we don't believe in compulsory vaccination for what we do need to do is to get brittany back on track. president biden has, for some time being pledging a greener future for american su in why are approvals for companies to drill for oil and gas reaching the highest level since george w bush was in power or senior correspondent, iraq garcia has been taking a little deeper joe,
1:25 am
barton's environmental policy was an exercise in populism halo did voted by the millions, promising the button environmental plot his version of the green new deal abroad to clean a world for our children. a gradual cure to our addiction to oral and pollution, half a year in biden's environmental policy has a new nickname. the green swindle. every indication is they have no plans of actually fulfilling their campaign promise. the result of that will be continued in increasing development of fossil fuels from public glance, which means more climate change. behind the cameras away from the wing and i, audiences barton has been stamping out all drilling permits at breakneck speeds. since he took office the u. s. government has approved more than 2000 all exploration permits on federal and native american lad. by the end of the year,
1:26 am
they have projected to approve $6000.00 permits. the last time so many were handed out was in 2008 under george bush. remember what i said about populism? climate change, climate warming, global warming is an existence of threat to humanity. we have a moral obligation to do with it. biden is enough of a populace to say what people want to hear about oil and enough of a politician to do nothing about it. where did people even get the idea that biden isn't advised? mental champion was him and bama who approved oil, fracking liquids, which have been linked to cancer birth defects to serious health problems. and worst of all have be nicknamed the for ever chemicals due to their ability to persist for a very long top. persist. also in the human body, organisms are unable to flush out these chemicals entirely. they stay us and build
1:27 am
up until we die. the obama biden administration approved the use of toxic chemicals for fracking a decade ago. and always years later, president by this practice is haven't seemed to change a bit by them himself places during the campaigns, a whole new fracking on federal lands. meanwhile, this administration is approving new frack and permits at the face, similar to trump, with no let up in sight to add scandal to injury the environmental protection agency, which approved all of this as a bit of trouble. c, whistleblowers have come forward saying that they were pressured, while reviewing new chemicals and toxins to approve the analysis and test with tab . but when they say to make dozens of new chemicals appear safe, environmental protection agency scientists are the last line of defense between harmful, even deadly chemicals and the introduction into us commerce. and this line of
1:28 am
defense is struggling to maintain its integrity. we can all applaud biden for organizing the stay summit with world leaders is charming environmental policy and motivational speeches. but when it comes to hard to add to that tough decisions, don't expect biden, to step up. he's a relic of the will age and one that apparently doesn't want to evolve. biden has no backbone. i don't think he feel he could have a mandate, which is a mandate for the earth mandate for everybody's lives on it, as opposed to being beholden to the fossil fuel and oil industry by increased amount of permits for drilling. you've clearly made a statement that he's worried about how the republic is going to react, as opposed to, you know, the catastrophe. we're now facing me. this isn't an urgent, drastic situation where the urgent action is needed biden is not taking urgent
1:29 am
action. whether by deal he has to tip toe around the republican to get the support from the climate deniers. or you know, more likely it's just the 2 parties of war in wall street that are basically catering to the market and putting this planet in jeopardy. well, that is our recap of the week. that was in the news world. we love plenty more, right? to write this from. they do join the again in 30 for the latest developments by from ah, in the join me every thursday on the alex simon show. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then me
1:30 am
the me you again. so when they say, why did you burn down the community? why do you know neighborhood are we don't own anything. we don't have anything, there's a social contract that we all and that if you feel or i feel the person who is the authority come in and they fix the situation. but the point was picked as it says, wait on the contract when you definitely can give up.
