In this episode, we talk to our resident legal analyst Micah Goldberg (@micahgoldberg) about BC’s lawsuit against big pharma, the Federal Court of Appeal’s ruling crushing the TransMountain pipeline expansion and the Sasquatch case. Then we look at what happened at the federal Conservative convention and we talk about how partisan we should be when a controversial figure like John McCain dies. Plus our usual handful of quick-takes.
