Ep 95: Fishy business

Ian’s back from vacation so we have a full show to catch up on everything bcpoli.

First, we talk all things salmon with BC Green MLA Adam Olsen. Then catching up on BC politics we look at Greyhound’s decision to pull out of Western Canada, the BC government’s labour infrastructure deal and kicking the ridesharing can down the road. We also talk about Trudeau’s latest cabinet shuffle and then we’re into the usual quick takes.

Tell us what you think of the intro song we’ve been using for the past few episodes and let us know what we should do for our 100th episode – should we come to Victoria? Should we do a big show in Vancouver? Comment below or Tweet at us.
