Senator, the Honourable Patrick Brazeau – Interview Project
True North Eager Beaver
About the Episode
Well, hel-looo, Kits ‘n’ Kubs!
TRIGGER WARNINGS: Alcoholism, Suicide
On Episode 47 of The True North Eager Beaver Interview Project (aka Episode 304 of The Daily Beaver Morning Show), join us for our most engaging conversation yet. A democratic representative’s most valuable commodity is their time, and today we have the honour and privilege of welcoming Senator, the Honourable Patrick Brazeau to The Beaver Lodge, as he grants us a good amount of it. We will be talking about the work of a Senator; the purpose of the institution; his life pre-Senate; the more tumultuous period of his career; mental health; staring into the abyss; his campaign to #EnabletheLabel when it comes to advertising cancer risks associated with alcohol; Reconciliation; and yes, that boxing match.
Senator Brazeau brings candor, transparency, and genuine commitment to this conversation.
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

Better yet, since our content is free and we shake it to earn your tips, you may now financially support our efforts via SuperChat on our YouTube page, but if you want to ensure that greater than 90% (rather than 70%) of your support gets to us, buying us a cup of coffee or mug of hot chocolate via The Eager Beaver Lodge Emergency Hydration Fund [https://ko-fi.com/eagerbeaver] really makes our day.
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.
