After retiring, he decided to start an online platform, The Last Ambulance, where he investigates the problems he saw in the EMS system. Messages started pouring in from EMS workers from across the country. Now his platform has become a voice for many health care and emergency service workers who are demoralized, exhausted, hanging on by a thread – and who are afraid to speak publicly about what is happening inside the system. Despite having worked in the system for so long, he didn’t realize just how broken it was until he started publishing The Last Ambulance.Host: Karyn PuglieseCredits: Tristan Capacchione (Audio Editor and Technical Producer), max collins (Production Manager), Bruce Thorson (Senior Producer), Karyn Pugliese (Editor-in-Chief)Additional music by Audio NetworkFurther reading:Chaque second compte — The Last AmbulanceYet Another Preventable Tragedy in Montreal — The Last AmbulanceA Child Dies as Ambulances Stall on Quebec First Nation — The RoverQuebec Leaves Another First Nation Without an Ambulance — The RoverLong wait for medical care likely played role in death of Atikamekw baby, Quebec coroner finds — CBCSponsors: Douglas: Canadaland listeners head to https://douglas.ca/canadaland to get a FREE Sleep Bundle with each mattress purchase.

  • 42. (Détours) Une guerre en chasse une autre

    38:00
    En février 2022, les grands médias occidentaux envoyaient des journalistes en Ukraine couvrir les premiers temps de l’invasion russe. Émissions spéciales, directs avec l’Ukraine et dossiers consacrés à la guerre fleurissaient dans les journaux, à la radio et au téléjournal. Qu’en est-il aujourd’hui, alors que le conflit israelo-palestinien occupe les esprits? Emilie reçoit Pierre Alonso, journaliste indépendant installé à Kyiv, pour faire le point sur deux années de journalisme de guerre et sur la vie quotidienne dans un pays encore sous les bombes. Dans la deuxième partie de l’émission, Emilie et Pierre s’intéressent aux journalistes ukrainiens et à leur travail. Limités par la loi martiale imposant des contraintes éditoriales, les journalistes locaux réinventent leur rôle tout en menant une lutte acharnée contre la corruption.In February 2022, major Western media outlets sent journalists to Ukraine to cover the early stages of the Russian invasion. Special shows, direct broadcasts with Ukraine and long pieces devoted to the war flourished in the newspapers, on the radio and on television. What about today, now that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is on everyone's minds? Emilie speaks with Pierre Alonso, an independent journalist based in Kyiv, to take stock of two years of war journalism and daily life in a country still under siege. In the second part of the show, Emilie and Pierre look at Ukrainian journalists and their work.

  • 1002. Brain Disease ‘Mystery’ Still Unsolved, Scientists Say

    27:48
    “All I will say is that my scientific opinion is that there is something real going on in New Brunswick that absolutely cannot be explained by the bias or personal agenda of an individual neurologist.” Those are the words of Dr. Michael Coulthart, a microbiologist employed by our federal government, specifically by Public Health Canada. He’s talking about the mysterious neurological disease that is striking down people in New Brunswick. We were not supposed to read his words. They are from a leaked email obtained by Canadaland, first published by the newspaper The Guardian.Then there was another leaked email. Doctor Samuel Weiss, a neuroscientist and the scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. In his leaked email, he states, “I felt incredibly optimistic that an all out government effort to unravel the mystery was in the cards. However, in short order, the scientific effort was shut down at the request of the governments.”It’s nine years since the first case was documented. The numbers, by some reports, have grown to over 300 suspected cases. And we still have no answers. Our reporters, Cherise Sucheran and Sarah Lawrynuik present the latest instalment in our ongoing investigation.Host: Jesse BrownCredits: Cherise Sucheran and Sarah Lawrynuik (Reporters)Caleb Thompson (Audio Editor), Max Collins (Production Manager), Bruce Thorson (Senior Producer), Karyn Pugliese (Editor-in-Chief)Additional music by Audio NetworkFurther reading:Second Canadian Scientists Alleges Brain Illness Investigation was Shut DownTop Canadian Scientist Alleges in Leaked Emails He Was Barred From Studying Mystery brain IllnessGovernment Officials Mislead the Public About the “Mysterious” New Brunswick Neurological Disease, and We Have the Documents to Prove itSponsors: Douglas, Article, Squarespace If you value this podcast, support us!
