The federal government is looking to change Canada’s assisted dying laws following a Quebec court decision finding a part of it to be unconstitutional (which many, many people told them). But will the expanded access come with new barriers?

As USMCA passes the US Senate, we look at what it changes from NAFTA and whether this is good for Canada.

Then we look at the latest in what has been a wild week of who’s in and who’s out of the Conservative leadership race and whether it’s just coming down to the Peter MacKay coronation.

But first we start with a new format of rounding up the latest in BC politics. Notably, the mini cabinet shuffle, some follow ups on the impasse between the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs and the Coastal GasLink pipeline and the news that Uber and Lyft are arriving in Vancouver, while the taxi industry’s Kater gets shut out.
