The 905er talks wine in Niagara

Frank Domenic Returns to The 905er The 905er Podcast

Now on Support us there and help keep the podcast going! We welcome back to the podcast Frank Domenic! Frank joins Roland and Joel to recap two previous episodes and look at where we stand now on their issues. Previously we had on Karen Brown, President of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario to discuss violence in Ontario schools against teachers. Frank is a teacher himself and so his insight into the dynamic in the classroom was invaluable. We also talk about how the trend hasn't decreased but has seemingly become more and more pronounced in our school system. What can be done about it and where are we falling short. Then we follow up on the story we did with the Ontario Health Coalition Executive Director Natalie Mehra. The Ontario Healthcare Coalition is kicking off a referendum for Ontarians to weigh in on the status of healthcare in Ontario. As the Doug Ford government pursues more and more private options for health care, what are people's concerns and fears about the direction the province is going. For the first time, Ontarians will have a chance to directly weigh in on how they view their health care options in the province. How did this conversation get to this point, and are we doing the best to provide Ontarians with the best choices for healthcare? Frank joins us for a lively discussion.

Covid-19 has upended a lot of norms in our lives. Most impacted has been the tourism and hospitality sectors. Where business was most often conducted face to face and in more intimate and comfortable surroundings, the entire industry has been forced to throw out old business models and invent new ones.

We spoke with Jason Cassis a few weeks ago, about trying a new business venture in the middle of this pandemic. This week we spoke with Andrea Kaiser, Chair of Wineries of Niagara on the Lake. A wine industry marketing association for Niagara wineries. It was a fascinating discussion on what they have been doing to survive the pandemic and and how they are retooling to adapt to a different future than what we are used to.

These talks have given me renewed sense of optimism about our post-COVID-19 world. And how we can create something new and better than what we had before.
