When longtime Vancouver media personality David Berner returns to the public eye on March 30, he promises to introduce the audience for his one-man show to “stars, scoundrels and saints.”
An Evening with David Berner at the PAL Theatre will feature stories from Berner’s life in show biz, broadcasting, journalism, writing and addictions therapy work. He is the featured guest on this week’s edition of theBreaker.news Podcast, in a conversation about two of his favourite topics, weather and politics.
On Justin Trudeau: “What he and his minions did was wrong, they quite clearly tried to beat up on this minister [Jody Wilson-Raybould] and tell her to not proceed with a criminal case, and it’s all about politics… I’ve been calling it ‘Lanolin’ for years, ‘Lanolin’ is a a greasy company, it always has been. They are the sister of Bombardier, who built all these SkyTrain [cars]. I want to know who has the cement contract, because all of those cement pillars.”
On Donald Trump: “There are a lot of people who think Trump will get away with everything; he might be defeated in 2020, he might even be re-elected. Even if he’s defeated, he’ll walk away laughing. I’m not one of those people.”
On the wacky Vancouver weather in 2019: “I haven’t shifted to spring clothes, I shifted to summer clothes. Typical Vancouver mentality, y’know, you’ll see people wearing shorts in February because we’re trying to convince the gods to move along. I do think about climate change and those kinds of serious issues, but when a beautiful spring day comes along with 15 above and the tennis courts are packed, I’m a happy camper.”
Listen to host Bob Mackin’s full interview with Berner, followed by the latest on the SNC-Lavalin scandal.
Plus Pacific Northwest and Pacific Rim headlines and commentaries.
