Good morning :
—Special shoes made with chocolate in them. Yummy, Yummy right? Not so – instead they ignited a diplomatic incident.
—Mind blowing from Google. It will be available to everyone later this year. It sounds like a REAL PERSON, so listen to a robot make a restaurant reservation. And another one for a hair appointment.
—Have you got two minutes for a better healthier life? You can do it just be consistent.

CANADA’S RACISM IS ALIVE AND WELL AND GROWING
A woman from Cranbrook whose disgusting and foul-mouthed racist rant captured on video and seen world-wide has set off a storm about how prevalent racism is in Canada.
The woman was fired from her job but her actions give cause for concern.
Canada has at least 100 groups who are white supremacists and racists.
And to some the latest incident shows that racism is a problem in Canada.
The government is so concerned about racism that is spending millions of dollars combatting it as noted by the Washington Post.
One group that is strictly anti-Islamic is based on the principles of a similar U.S. group and just started up recently in Canada.
WHAT IT MEANS
And some things that happen boggle the mind.
A Chinese Canadian group recently joined forces with a right-wing group to lead protests against Prime Minister Trudeau.
Every Monday and Thursday George Froehlich brings you interesting, unique and fascinating people that share their stories and perspectives.
Sam Hauck – Mind Of A Wine Teacher
Sam, aka The Wine Teacher, has been an educator, a home winemaker, a wine judge for too many years to remember.
And it all started off with making homemade beer with a friend.
And then it progressed to wine with the same friend.
Wine that won awards for both Sam and his friend.
Today Sam is super busy.
Even his friends remark how he often is not available – given that the world wine is a whirlwind of endless activity.
Sam has offered wine education and appreciation courses for Pacific Breeze Winery, Capilano University, Eden West Fine Foods, Coquitlam and Richmond School Districts Continuing Education departments, the VAWA, the BCAWA as well as for various private functions. In addition, he trains staff and offers cellar evaluations.
In this edition of Cool Conversations Sam talks to George Froehlich about:
What is his number one piece of advice to people who like to drink wine.
The time he did a blind taste test with a top French wine and several B.C. wines and what the outcome was.
Why is B.C. wine higher priced than those wines from the U.S. and elsewhere.
Why is red wine more expensive than white wine.
Where wine is treated like a cocktail.
Why wines taste different when drinking them by themselves, compared when drinking them with food.
Why one world expert said B.C. wines are close and will catch up to some of the best French wines in the world.
Why today some $40 B.C. wines could end up costing anywhere from $150 to $200 a bottle.
B.C. producing the most variety of grapes in the world.
Why can’t we get decent B.C. wines for $9 to $10.
The time the wine world was shocked about B.C. wines.
A fabulous B.C. wine that men did not want to drink, but once they did they were amazed.
How he and his friend made a port wine by accident and it turned out to be fabulous.
B.C.’s Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines are awesome.
