In this episode, I sit down with a long-time friend, musician, business owner, and founder of OpenSafe Ottawa, Skotti Ruffo. First, we talk about his business (as an entrepreneur) “The Brass Monkey” a live music venue in Ottawa, and how the shutdowns affected that business, and how he feels about covid in general.

Then discuss Ottawa reopening and some of the work he’s down with his organization, OpenSafe Ottawa, in regards to helping make that happen. Skotti and I also dive into the topics of vaccinations, covid passports, the head-scratching guidelines, goverment overreach, some general covid conversation, and our mutual dislike for Doug Ford.

I think there are some great points made by both parties here, and will likely have you nodding your head in agreement.

Help support The Brass Monkey by purchasing a GIFT CARD or something in their website STORE.
