Millions of people had seen Muhammad Ali, many thousands had talked to him, but Jack Farr had them all beat. The longtime CBC radio host was among a small and prestigious group who had a poem written for them by the American boxing legend. Nicknamed “Captain,” Farr parlayed his regular radio appearances into his own gig as host of the Winnipeg-produced The Radio Show on Saturday afternoons on CBC from 1983 to 1992. He dashed back and forth between the TV room and the kitchen for the entire day and was happy as a kid in a toy store.”Farr met Bonnie at the CBC radio studios in Toronto. The words and humour just rolled out of him, much like his Radio Show items and interviews,” she says.

Prime Minister Mackenzie King appointed a past Premier of Saskatchewan as his new Minister of Finance on this date in 1929. Charles A. Dunning, born in England in 1885, emigrated to Canada in 1901, at the age of 16. He would later hold his province’s top political job from 1922 until 1926, served in Finance until the defeat of King’s Liberal government at the hands of R.B. The following year he prevailed upon Dunning to once again serve as Minister of Finance. Dunning agreed and was sent to the Commons in 1936 by acclamation via by-election and entered cabinet.

But is Canadian wheat as impeccable as we like to believe? Kevin Auch, who grows durum wheat in rotation with bread wheat, flax, peas and other crops on his 5,000-acre farm, told me he does indeed use glyphosate. Auch said he only uses glyphosate in the spring, to prep fields and clear them of weeds before sowing. Lanier is a durum wheat farmer, as his father was before him. “If it was so dangerous, my 92-year-old father wouldn’t be there riding his horse in my fields,” Lanier said when conversation turned to glyphosate use by Canadian farmers.

(Photo Electric Umbrella/Derek El - image credit)Mason Nyhus knows Saturday's Vanier Cup game will be his last wearing the green and white of the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. "That's why you play the game — to win a Vanier Cup, win a national championship," Nyhus said. Obviously, last year [when the Huskies lost in the Vanier Cup to the Western University Mustangs], we couldn't get it done. Laval has a 4-1 lifetime record against the Huskies, including Vanier Cup victories in 2004 and 2006.

CLIMATE PLEDGESIf Qatar is one of the world’s wealthiest nations per capita, it is also one of the most polluting per person. That view is increasingly unsupported by science as the extent of leaks from natural gas infrastructure becomes clear. Leaking natural gas is far more harmful for the climate than carbon dioxide, ton for ton. Earlier this year, state-owned gas giant Qatar Energy joined an industry-led pledge to reduce nearly all methane emissions from operations by 2030. Qatar inked new deals with several energy companies, including a recent 27-year agreement to provide liquefied natural gas to Chinese oil and gas company Sinopec.

US FCC bans sales, import of Chinese tech from Huawei, ZTEWASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. is banning the sale of communications equipment made by Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE and restricting the use of some China-made video surveillance systems, citing an “unacceptable risk” to national security. Along with Huawei and ZTE, the order affects products made by companies such as Hikvision and Dahua, makers of widely used video surveillance cameras. The FCC's order applies to future authorizations of equipment, though the agency leaves open the possibility it could revoke previous authorizations. “Our unanimous decision represents the first time in FCC history that we have voted to prohibit the authorization of new equipment based on national security concerns,” tweeted Brendan Carr, a Republican FCC commissioner. Carr added that as “a result of our order, no new Huawei or ZTE equipment can be approved.

Inquiry document says Bergen, PM talked about setting ‘bad precedent’ with convoyOTTAWA — Notes taken during a conversation between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former interim Conservative leader Candice Bergen shed more light on their discussion about reaching out to "Freedom Convoy" protesters. Trudeau and Bergen spoke on her first day as the interim Opposition leader after the Conservative caucus ousted former leader Erin O'Toole. The inquiry previously learned that one of Trudeau's aides suggested Bergen privately acknowledged there were "significant concerns" around engaging with protesters and "setting a bad precedent" during the call. "The interpretation and semantics surrounding a readout of a private conversation between myself and the prime minister is not the issue here. The issue is the unjustified invocation of the Emergencies Act by a prime minister who is still acting like a coward by manipulating, misleading and twisting the truth.
