Follow The Leader(ship Races)

August 26, 2017

Erin, Matthew and Pat sit down to hash out the Horgan government's new ban (of sorts) on the trophy hunting of grizzly bears. They check in with the three current leadership races - the BC Liberals, Alberta UCP, and the federal NDP - and attempt to give listeners a peak behind the curtain at the internal party operations that go into electing a new leader. Finally they examine white supremacy in Canada, and talk about the significance of historical monuments, including how controversial figures with a checkered past might be commemorated. 

Errors: It was stated that Grace McCarthy was the first female leader of a party in BC. It was actually Rita Johnson. 


The Mighty Megaproject

August 12, 2017

Erin, Matthew and Patrick come together to check in with BC politics as the Jobs Minister makes an unforced error, and attempt to figure out what might stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline and what might get it built. They wonder why it's so hard to build things in Canada, and debate whether this is a good thing, before heading to Saskatchewan to examine the demise of that province's rural bus company.

Fantasy Cabinet

July 15, 2017

The day when Premier Designate John Horgan unveils his Cabinet is fast approaching so Erin, Matthew and Pat sit down to play FANTASY CABINET and offer their picks for Ministers from the NDP caucus. They also get into the appointment of Julie Payette as the new Governor General of Canada. 


Happy Canada150, probably!

July 9, 2017

Erin is joined by Matthew and Patrick as they check in after their Canada150 celebrations, question whether or not Canada150 is worth celebrating at all, revisit the ongoing craziness at the BC Legislature, and see what Justin Trudeau got up to, and decide whether it's really a big deal to forget about Alberta. 


Nice platform, don’t mind if I do…

June 24, 2017
