The Alberta Gets Hit in the Face with Rakes Episode

In this week’s episode, we get back to the dumpster fire that is the COVID situation in Alberta (oh how we missed it…). We talk about the situation and whether Kenney’s leadership/the UCP will be able to survive from it. We then talk about the Calgary mayoral race, which is on October 18th (don’t forget to vote!). We strategize about how anyone can possibly beat Jeromy Farkas (AKA Jeromy Fartface, as the stickers around town would suggest).

For Report this week, we both read the long-form article by Anne Applebaum from the Atlantic called ‘The New Puritans‘. In this article, Applebaum argues that the woke/me too movements have had a side-effect of curtailing free speech.
