#32 - Gun control talk ensues after shootings over long weekend, mentally insane person may be able to walk freely

August 11, 2019

Guns, guns guns! That is the talk of the town not only in the U.S. but as well north of the border, specifically here in Toronto. 14 shootings occurred over the long weekend into as late Monday night. Again, Mayor John Tory is advocating for handgun bans, Temba explains the gun laws and restrictions already in place and why a handgun ban will not work to reduce crime. A man who stabbed three Canadian soldiers at a military center will not face any charges for his crimes and may be able to go out to walk freely in the public again. Temba explains why people with extreme mental health issues who do these heinous acts need to face the consequences. A Toronto researcher named Kang Lee is developing an app to monitor your blood pressure, the way that it will be monitored is simple and something that pretty much everyone does nowadays.

#31 - Man kills his own family in Markham, Women go topless for Caribbean festival

August 4, 2019

This week is Caribana weekend and not without an interesting story. Women will be topless this year (by the time this goes up and you read this, caribana will be finished) being led by Toronto photographer Yvonne Stanley. While Temba agrees with this, he found some of Yvonne's comments on encouraging women of colour being represented interesting and confused.

#30 - Marineland Canada calls police after tweet from Phil Demers, Man almost loses OVO tickets

July 28, 2019

A heartfelt good story for a change, a toronto chef named sasha simpson was an oprhan until the age of 8 when he was adopted by a woman in Toronto, his story over a few decades is really inspiring. and is the embodiment of the Canadian dream. Subsidized housing units sit empty as city struggles managing the largest waiting list with over 100k people, Temba correlates this story to when he was growing up in subsidized housing. A squirrel attacks a woman at a store after stupidly going up to its face while recording it. A man almost lost OVO tickets worth over $1,000 after shopper drugs mart mistakenly gave their package to someone else, Temba goes on a rant about how terrible Canada Post is and delivery drivers in general. Marine Land Canada calls the police on a man named Phil Demers after he tweeted "Life is short. Steal a walrus." There is no "this week in Toronto history" segment this week, there will be next week :)

#25 - Toronto Raptors parade ends in shooting, Doug Ford makes cuts to OSAP

June 23, 2019

The Toronto Raptors parade was this week and it ended sadly, as Temba was not surprised that it would. With 2 + million people there was bound to be some craziness, with no security checks as it would be impossible, there was a shooting that took place at the parade with people trampling all over each other. Temba talks about why he didn't go and the chances of Kawhi Leonard resigning with the Raptors. Speaking of shootings, the updated list of the gun buyback program has finally been revealed, more than 3,000 guns have been bought back, Temba speaks on why gun crimes will still increase. The words OSAP were trending on social media and that couldn't be a good thing. Students were saying that their OSAP were cut in half and with some receiving little to none, Temba speaks on his experiences with OSAP and the cuts that were made. Owners of a child pornography website were busted this week and will appear in court later. Temba is angry as hell and gives a list of punishments that should be handed down to sick people like this. And legendary Sports broadcaster Bob McCowan was seemingly let go by Sports Net where he has been since 1989, Temba gives his theories on why he was fired and talks about why Bob McCowan is the way that he is.

There is no history segment this week as there no historical moments that happened, don't worry though there will be next week :) Available wherever you get your podcasts!
