BC’s new government is ten days old, how are they doing? Then we sat down for an interview with NDP leadership candidate Niki Ashton to discuss her bid. Finally, we give quick takes on Vancouver & Burnaby housing stories, the ongoing Alberta United Conservative Party going ons and Trump’s decision to ban trans people from the military.
Note that as we recorded this, the US Senate was voting on the healthcare bill, so we cut our discussion of that and as we were editing it, Christy Clark announced her resignation, so we don’t discuss that.
