Ep 79: “Shoot the mayor in the head and burn down houses” – A look at Nanaimo politics

Carole James announces updates to the speculation tax that will see fewer people charged less tax but it will raise the same amount of money. Then we dive into Nanaimo politics with Jesse Woodward to find out why a city councillor was charged with assault and a city manager was charged with uttering threats. Finally, Michael Spratt joins us to break down the federal Liberal’s new justice reform bill.
