(Reuploaded with correct audio – sorry!)

BC Today’s Shannon Waters returns to talk about covering the legislature as it returns in a hybrid format. We also tease out some of what’s expected to come over the remainder of the summer session.

Then we look at the controversy that’s erupted over the federal government’s decision to outsource management of the Canada Student Service Grant to the WE charity. Note that our conversation happened just before WE and the government announced the end of their relationship.
