NCI bingo sales support St Eustache Métis

First, Canada’s Broadcasting Act must be updated to reflect aboriginal people. Nanaimo RCMP are investigating after a couple was doused with bear spray following a reported road-rage incident on Sunday. RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki initially recommended the federal government not share information on the types of guns used in the Nova Scotia mass shooting — a stance she apparently shifted a few days later. McLeod says the station’s future includes a push to expand its online reach to urban audiences, but he notes the core of what it does will never change. “We’re venturing into communities that commercial radio does not pay attention to. That’s something that’s at the heart of what we do.” The station’s primary growth occurred in the 1990s when it began purchasing transmitters to broadcast its own content. That will be the case for the next four hours as hundreds of listeners across Manitoba try to get on to NCI FM’s flagship show called “Friends on Fridays.” McLeod says the station’s future includes a push to expand its online reach to urban audiences, but he notes the core of what it does will never change.

His door was always open to all his friends and neighbours and his generosity was appreciated by countless charities and organizations over the years. He was an avid sports fan, especially of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, as well as the Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Blue Jays and knew all the stats. He was a faithful NCI bingo player and loved his ’68 Ford Mustangs and fishing. Ten people have been charged and Edmonton police are looking to charge more after busting a network that distributed stolen liquor and other illegal items. Toronto police have updated a charge to murder in the case of a young woman who was set on fire at transit station and later died of her injuries. A tentative agreement has been reached between VIA Rail and Unifor early Tuesday as workers were prepared to go on strike, a move that could have shut down passenger rail service across Canada.

Our Cree and Ojibway listeners were so enthusiastic about the language game show that we are currently in discussion with APTN and local producers to create a six-part TV series based on this concept. A group from northern Indigenous communities decided to form a committee to create a station that would provide Indigenous language and cultural programming, which later evolved into NCI, says McLeod. McLeod says the game will return to radio this Saturday morning, but with a much smaller prize. The size of the prize depends on how many bingo cards are sold by Saturday.

  • For the purposes of this condition, the terms “broadcast week,” “Canadian selection,” “content category” and “musical selection” shall have the same meaning as that set out in the Radio Regulations, 1986.
  • NNBAP serves status and non-status first nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in all regions of Canada.
  • I strongly agree with the results of a 2000 study of the national aboriginal broadcast program by Canadian Heritage that says that as aboriginal broadcasters we play a crucial role in our regions and in the communities we serve.
  • McLeod says it now operates 57 transmitters reaching almost every corner of the province.
  • The heart of the show, much like the station it airs on, is about representing day-to-day life in Indigenous communities.

The first game involves getting all 12 numbers in a diamond shape that is pre-stamped onto the bingo cards. To win the Mini Loonie jackpot, currently valued at $500,000, players must complete the solid diamond on one of five special loonie numbers called prior to the game. If you fill the diamond but you don’t win on a loonie number, then you’ll get a consolation prize currently valued at $4,900. McKay and his co-host, Arnold Dysart, would record broadcasts using a single microphone on a folding table.

The Métis local, which boasts a large membership in the southwest region, receives 10 per cent of the ticket sales. Another portion of the proceeds goes to Native Communications Inc. , a Manitoba-based Indigenous radio broadcaster offers programming throughout the province. The bingo funds are used towards operational costs and NCI network growth. On a Friday night and the call lines at one of Canada’s largest Indigenous radio stations are all flashing. On a Friday night and the call lines at one of Canada’s largest Indigenous radio stations are all flashing. It must be noted that compared to the $1 billion that CBC receives in funding, the 13 societies receive a combined funding of only $7.9 million to accomplish all of these objectives. An idea that became a radio segment on CBC in partnership with an aboriginal broadcaster became two half-hour radio programs and will now grow into six television shows. Honourable members of the committee, thank you for this opportunity to make a presentation before you today. I am the executive director of Native Communications Incorporated, also known as NCI-FM. We operate a province-wide radio network that reaches 97% of Manitoba with 57 radio transmitters located from Winnipeg all the way to Churchill.

For the purposes of this condition, the terms “broadcast week,” “Canadian selection,” “content category” and “musical selection” shall have the same meaning as that set out in the Radio Regulations, 1986. In this last point I would like to call on Canadian Heritage to re-examine the results of a 2000 study that outlined an analysis of northern native broadcast access program recommendations and concerns in eight key areas. I believe there are several important components that must be reviewed, which include funding toward the archiving of materials. We must ensure that the last 20 years of radio and television programming will be available for future generations of people seeking materials like traditional legends and news archives, etc. In 1999 I had the opportunity to talk with the late Bernelda Wheeler, who gained national recognition as the host, producer, and investigative documentary journalist of Our Native Land.
