Show Notes


November 24th, 2014

8:30 a.m.- Saskatoon City Councillor Pat Lorje is in hot water after allegedly breaching confidentiality by leaking a city report that had not been released to the public.

8:45 a.m.- The federal government will provide $200 million over six years to address mental health issues among members of the Canadian Forces. The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces also announced Sunday that an additional $16.7 million in ongoing funds will be available to support members of the Forces, veterans and their families. Parm Gill, Parliamentary Secretary for the Minister of Veteran’s Affairs.

9:00 a.m.– The Hour of the Big Stories.. Open Session.

10:00 a.m.–Saskatoon Police Chief Clive Weighill joins the show for an update on crime in the Bridge City. Clive Weighill, Chief of the Saskatoon Police Service.

10:30 a.m.- Last year, Canada Post announced it would be ending door-to-door mail delivery service in most areas of the country. Some have opposed the decision, saying it is unfair to the elderly and infirm. Moose Jaw City Council is sending a letter to Canada Post opposing the end of the service. Councillor Don Mitchell says Canada Post isn’t in a financial crisis, so they should continue the service. Should door to door mail delivery continue? Don Mitchell, Moose Jaw city councilor.

11:00 a.m.– Health Canada is currently running television ads on the evils of marijuana. The ads are a throw-back to the “this is your brain on drugs” type ads of decades ago. Many Youtube users have panned the commercial, but the government says it is based on science. Are these ads a waste of the government’s time and money?

11:30 a.m.- Last week, we had a poignant e-mail from listener Darryl who was brave enough to share his struggle with a condition called “micro penis”. The condition, which affects approximately 1 in 200 men, is devastating emotionally and psychologically. We check in with sex therapist Sue McGarvie to find out how men can cope with this condition. Sue McGarvie, sex therapist.
12:00 p.m.- Auto industry expert Brian Makse is travelling across Canada to talk about the latest in automotives for the winter, holiday season and the new year. He joins us now to talk about some of the best auto products to keep your car fresh and in good shape during the winter, great holiday gift ideas and some of the new 2015 car models and technology. Brian Makse.

About John Gormley Live

John Gormley Live has been a staple of News Talk Radio from its beginning. Each weekday morning between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., John Gormley Live is the place where Saskatchewan comes to talk.

John is a former Saskatchewan Member of Parliament and a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Law. The insight he brings to the stories that Saskatchewan is talking about has made him one of this province’s most influential people, a recognition he received from Saskatchewan Business Magazine. 

But John’s not all business. Each week, his callers fill the phone lines to provide their Rider Prognostications and to try to become Saskatchewan’s Smartest Radio Listener. Others want to vent during Bugs Day or hear John’s Heroes and Zeroes. They also get their chance to set the agenda of the John Gormley Live during the Ultimate Open Lines.

In addition to his radio show, John writes a popular weekly column for the StarPhoenix in Saskatoon and the Leader Post in Regina. As a speaker at conventions, John entertains the crowds on topics ranging from politics to pop culture. Meanwhile, at the University of Saskatchewan, political science students have benefited from his lectures.

John recently added author to his list of credentials as an authority on Saskatchewan interests. John’s book Left Out: Saskatchewan’s NDP and the Relentless Pursuit of Mediocrity is not just about provincial politics, but an attitude John says took hold in Saskatchewan for far too long.

As a radio host, listeners have to come to expect that John Gormley will provoke opinions while getting to the bottom of the story.
