NTL 51 – The “Living” Wage, Naked Swimmers, and Dave’s Star Wars Review

The National Talky League is back for the 2018 season and the new year is starting with a bang!

Ontario’s minimum wage hike has both Dave and Roger fired up. Dave wants the online conversation to focus on the truth, not the emotions. Roger wants people to switch their focus to things that would actually make living easier in Canada.

Other Topics: The upcoming naked swimming event in Calgary and Dave’s unenthusiastic review of Star Wars.

This might be the most misunderstood traffic law in Alberta

Who has the right-of-way at an uncontrolled T intersection?

This isn’t a trick question. This is a basic concept that we all had to learn to get a driver’s licence in Alberta. Still, so many of us either forget or had no idea in the first place. Who has the right-of-way? Is it car A or car B?

NTL 046 – AirBnB regulation, French-to-French translation, and our friend Dan the One Man Band

Sorry we’re late this week. Roger was in Ottawa on a business trip where he saw something that would make Dave go nuts.

Ward 1 alderwhatever Ward Sutherland is compelled by an anecdote to regulate AirBnB in our city. Roger has a problem with that. Dave not as much.

Dave wrapped up watching the second season of Stranger Things, was suitably underwhelmed. He also saw the Justice League movie; was suitably whelmed.

The Full Episode Notes...

Strong Opinions Loosely Held.

This is the National Talky League - A weekly conversation about what's going on with a distinctly Albertan perspective. Topics range from political and social issues to movies and pop culture.

Hosted by Roger Kingkade and Dave Ware, labels don't do much to describe these two. Sometimes conservative, sometimes liberal, sometimes progressive, never holding anything as sacred and always willing to call bullshit when they see it.
