Byelection fever strikes BC as we preview Monday’s federal byelection in South Surrey-White Rock and the newly announced provincial byelection in Kelowna West.
Then we look back at John Horgan and the BC NDP’s first term in office with friend of the pod David Moscrop.
Plus our usual round of quick takes on fighter jets, housing and silly trade wars.
Patrons: There are some details about the new fee structure on Patreon’s blog. The long & short is Patreon will now be passing the credit card processing fees onto you. If you support multiple creators, you might be looking at this fee per pledge (rather than per payment you make each month). Let us know if this is an issue for you and we’ll make a fuss or find other options.
