Jordan’s Mom – TNEB Interview Project

True North Eager Beaver

About the Episode

Well, hel-looo, Kits ‘n’ Kubs!

TRIGGER WARNINGS: Death, Addiction, Neglect, Vilomah, Mental Health

On Episode 46 of The True North Eager Beaver Interview Project (aka Episode 299 of The Daily Beaver Morning Show), join us for a difficult and emotional, but very necessary, discussion about the experience of a parent who lost their child due to failures of both the health care and penal systems. As Jordan Sheard’s birthday approaches, Jordan’s Mom (Angela Vos, supported by her good friend Leanne Schaefer) visit the Beaver Lodge to share a heart-wrenching story of the totally preventable death of a young man who was in provincial custody under the supervision of the Ontario Ministry of the Solicitor General and a mother’s excruciating wait for justice; channeling tragedy into constructive action; and the champions who have stepped in to offer crucial support. Jordan’s Mom also delivers some Important advice to those who love and care for someone in distress. 

This is one of these rare occasions when we get the privilege of doing a show that is important. 

The Daily Beaver Morning Show is broadcast LIVE (most of the time), weekdays at 7-ish a.m. Eastern. Our take on the news is the purrr-fect thing for busy Kits who are on-the-go who want to stay engaged. 

Until next time, be kind to — and gentle with — yourselves, 

Your Eager Beaver and Mr. Grizzly

Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something. Because #DemocracyIsSomethingYouDo…

Write to your MP, MPP, MLA, MNA, Senator, or preferred local media outlet to tell them you expect them to dig deep into the Doug Ford corruption story as well as indicted-in-the-USA-for-trying-to-steal-an-election Mike Roman’s links to Stephen Harper and Andrew Scheer. And tell them you want better supports for people struggling with mental illness and addiction.

With the current strain on our health care professionals, do the right neighbourly thing to keep our hospitals unclogged: get your XBB, flu, pneumonia, and / or RSV shots. 


Finally, support your fellow Canadians by donating to the Red Cross Wildfire Response. _________________________________________________
