The (Disingenuous) Man in the Arena (Deal) Episode

In this episode, for Canadian Federal politics, we talk about the ‘power moves’ being made by Justin Trudeau and Erin O’Toole in the lead-up to the (increasingly likely) fall election. For Municipal (AKA Local) politics, we talk about how the developments in the big arena deal are playing in the Municipal election slated for October. Who is making hay and who is eating it, we’ll discuss!

For Book/Movie Report, David read (with his eyes) Oh Canada, Oh Quebec by Mordechai Richler and Mike watched (with his eyes as well) what can be considered a ‘companion piece’ documentary called The Rise and Fall of Montreal from the National Film Board. Both pieces explore the contribution of the English Montrealers to the city, the language laws in place and the English exodus that has resulted from it.
