Ep 47: Ian’s Ottawa Adventure

Ian’s in Ottawa this week so we have a special episode with two interviews. First, Ian spoke with Evidence for Democracy Executive Director Katie Gibbs about the politics of science in Canada. Then, we have a clip from the latest episode of The Docket, where Ian discusses the Trinity Western University case before the Supreme Court of Canada with lawyers Michael Spratt and Emilie Taman.

Ep 46: Lindsay Tedds

We spoke with University of Victoria professor Lindsay Tedds about all things taxes and economics and then a quick listen to some of the highlight policies from Jean Swanson’s candidacy announcement for Vancouver City Council.


Emergency pod: Christy Clark resigns

Christy Clark has announced she’s resigning as leader of the BC Liberals – and she did it while we were editing our most recent podcast! So Ian & Scott are back to look forward to what this means for the future of the BC Liberal Party and the state of politics in the province.

Ep 45: Niki Ashton

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.
