The Edmund Burke Rolls Over in His Grave Episode

In this episode, for Canadian federal politics, we continue to observe the big moves being made by the major parties in our ‘Election Watch’ series. This week the Liberals announced a bunch of money for Quebec’s aerospace industry – is it good politics/policy? We’ll discuss! For provincial/municipal politics, we talk about the issues that will be put on the ballot in Alberta municipal elections in the fall – and whether referendums are a good way to make decisions, more generally.

For PodReport, Mike listened to the first episode of the Foreign Desk’s special series which examines big historical events in the same way they cover today’s big events (you’ll get it when you hear it!). The first one is on the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
