Emergency Podcast: Canada buys Trans Mountain pipeline

The Government of Canada announced it will drop $4.5 billion to buy the Trans Mountain Expansion Pipeline, will provide a loan to restart construction immediately and will fund the project to completion if it has to before selling it off. It’s a big deal so we brought you an emergency podcast.

Ep 87: A very litigious week

Rachel Notley uses the Western Premiers Meeting to try again to make the case for the Transmountain Pipeline while BC files suit against her Bill 12. Kinder Morgan also won two more lawsuits while they face another. Then, we turn our attention to the first year of Andrew Scheer’s leadership over the Conservative Party of Canada.

Ep 84: Buzz off Davidoff

The rich are in revolt and some are calling for UBC to censor economist Tom Davidoff. So we brought Tom back to walk us through the school tax and how he’s coping. Plus we look at David Eby’s decision to cancel a town hall and Mike Harcourt’s decision to interject himself into the debate.
