A BC politics heavy podcast this week: The BC Liberals have a new leader but how much is he just like the old leaders? Alberta stops importing BC wines after BC puts a moratorium on diluted bitumen shipments, prompting Scott to have an aneurysm. We check in on how these two stories will play in the Kelowna West byelection. In quick takes we look at a slew of BC Government announcements, Trudeau’s town hall woes, a new national environmental review process and which dictatorial regime we’re selling arms to this week. And we finish off with a few of the many great tweets from this past week in our #bestofbcpoli segment.
