A big week coming up on TGCTS

This coming week is a must-not-miss 5 days on The Great Canadian Talk Show:

Monday: We dissect the latest smear in the relentless anti-Sam Katz campaign spearheaded by Free Press columnist Gordon Sinclair and ask more questions about the different standards applied to Katz than to friends of the newspaper like University of Winnipeg President Lloyd Axworthy; also the publisher of the new Manitoba Score Magazine, Tom Thiessen, will be in studio with Marty and Frank the Italian Barber to talk about his business plan to give amateur sports the coverage it is denied by mainstream media outlets.

Tuesday: Councillor Harvey Smith will appear in studio at 4.05 PM to explain the findings of the City Finance Committee in their investigation into the multi-million dollar overruns for the West End pollution control plant.

Chairman Coun. Mike O'Shaughnessy will only discuss the story with "reporters he has a prior relationship with" at CBC -- despite our numerous requests for an interview. But Smith did not hesitate to agree to answer the hard questions in a face to face. So all of you who "spin the dial to Radio 990" will have to tune in

Wednesday: CTV's Crimewatch reporter Kelly Dehn will review the latest in murder and mayhem and update us on the search for a new police chief; and at 4.40 PM the owners of Krooked Eye Studios will talk about their efforts to find new musical acts and enhance career options for the youth of Winnipeg.

Thursday: Spirited Kenny has been working for months on the 10-year long failure of the federal government to enact a proper warning system "CANALERT" when weather emergencies hit the region. His investigation hit a brick wall with Public Safety Canada -- and what he found out about the projected costs in terme of lives lost and property damage will shock Manitobans; and at 4.45 PM Slam!Sports journalist Jon Waldman will join the show for a look at the top sports stories.

Friday: Internationally reknowned Middle East affairs analyst Yoram Hamizrachi-East of will preview the screening of the Oscar-nominated film BEAUFORT, the story of Israeli army commander Liraz Liberti, who had the duty of holding and then destroying a mountaintop watch outpost while Lebanese bombs dropped on his troops.

BEAUFORT will be shown on Monday, October 29th, at 7 PM, at the Berney Theatre on the Asper Jewish Community Centre, 123 Doncaster. Tickets can be arranged by calling 477-7510 or by going to (click on Ticket central) and cost $8.50 and only $5.00 for students with photo ID. This event, to be moderated by Marty Gold of 92.9 Kick-FM, is sponsored by the Winnipeg Chapter, Canadian Friends of Hebrew University (Ron East, Director).

After the film Hamizrachi-East will take part in a panel discussion with Lt. Col. Jonathan D. Halevi (Ret.), the Dir of Research & Policy Planning for the Orient Research Group Ltd and a Senior Researcher of the Middle East and Radical Islam at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

And Shaun Myall of Island Sports and Entertainment (ISE) Ltd. will bring the latest exciting developments after our Power Pro Wrestling TV Series pitch scored the highest ever rating for a segment of CBC-TV's Dragons' Den TV show.

Host Marty Gold, with special guests from ISE Television Ltd., will have exclusive behind-the-scenes coverage of what happened Thanksgiving night, when we made our best "elevator pitch" to CBC TV's The Dragons' Den - 5 of Canada's most successful business leaders - trying to convince them to back our pre-sold TV series.

And Spirited Kenny will be in the Winnipeg studio with exclusive information about the federal CANALERT program, which is supposed to warn Canadians and help protect them from weather emergencies like tornados, but has been strangled by bureaucratic neglect.

Here is the press release explaining what the CBC show is all about:

Point Douglas residents take back their neighborhood this Wednesday

During today's program, we received an email that is right in line with one of our main themes - crack cocaine and gangs threaten the fibre of our city and the safety of our streets.

We've had many elected officials on the show including Point Douglas MLA George Hickes and Mynarski councilman Harry Lazarenko, who represent the most endangered residents of Winnipeg. Full of platitudes and little in terms of commitment to take on gangs head-on, from two politicians who have been in office for a combined 50 years.

The kids from Norquay School beseached Govenor General Michaelle Jean for relief last June, and spurred the residents committee to take a stand starting with addressing then - CAO of Winnipeg Annitta Stenning during meetings for public input into hiring a new police chief. A mere week after they complained that nothing had been done by police about crack houses on two streets, a SWAT team swooped in.

Now they embark on Phase Two, and will hold a public gathering on Wednesday.

We'll be there, and we hope that people from across the city will come and show their support for the brave adults and children of Point Douglas.

Media Release
Campaign kick off

Wed. Oct. 3 5:30 to 6:15
Joe Zuken Park
Corner of Euclid & Grove St

The Point Douglas Residents Committee is committed to ensuring Point Douglas is a healthy positive community. Unfortunately, crack dealers have become insidious in our community and are involving younger and younger youth in their dealing.

To make a public statement that crack dealing is not acceptable we are formally kicking off a campaign to mobilize the community by holding a campaign launch on Wed Oct 3.

There will be music, speakers and some refreshments.

Speakers include

Hon Gord Macintosh MLA, Minister of Family Services
Sandy Dzedzora Chair Sistars Community resident
Al Cameron Justice Department
Elaine Bishop Exec. Director North Point Douglas Women’s Centre
Sonia Prevost-Derbecker School Trustee
George Hickes MLA Point Douglas
Russ Wyatt City Councillor

Point Douglas wants to show that when the community is mobilized and supported by all levels of government we can rid our community of this problem.

For Evil to triumph all that is required is for good people to do nothing.
