The Erin O’Toole Goes To Normandy Episode

In this episode, we talk about the Conservative Party of Canada’s policy convention – including the speech from Erin O’Toole…and the contradictory, news-worthy vote that took place thereafter. We double-it-up on Federal politics this week by chatting about the Supreme Court ruling affirming that the federal government has jurisdiction to impose a carbon tax over the country (and the provinces that reside within).

For BookReport this week, Mike takes us through all of the US Presidents that achieved the post through happenstance with Accidental Presidents by Jared Cohen. This book (which Mike read with his ears, of course) outlines the lives and presidencies of the roughly 20% of US Presidents that came about the job from being VP.
