Does anyone think that Justin Trudeau has never used the N-word?

Why is Wendy Mesley now condemned for life while Justin Trudeau gets re-elected to be Prime Minister?

Hi, I keep having a hard time understanding all this narrative. can you have Sandy give her thoughts on what differs Floyd's murder from Tony Timpa murder a few years back. It looks the same to me but I'm intrigued at her thoughts on both murders. thanks

Love this show. Such important, deep journalism work being done on Canadaland and all other shows like ThunderBay, Cool Mules and Commons.

It's not just Blackrock that killed the project. It is the low oil price, plain and simple. The low price makes the investment, risk, and effort of Teck's expensive project unattractive.

Jesse keeps on saying "the media says" this and "the media says" that. Well first of all, Canadaland IS part of the media. Secondly, many people also feel that it IS the hereditary chiefs that get all the media attention. Why does Jesse feel that monarchs views count more than elected officials?

I'm disappointed at how biased this episode is. Is Jesse just trying to justify his own comments? Why is this episode so anti-Canada?

Trudeau's framing around himself as being patient or out of patience with this is insulting to the protesters in and of itself. it sounds so condescending to me.

A podcast that pretends to call out Canadas fake news while they push their own leftist logic. Don't want to admit that the New York times is anti-Semitic which they are. Bashing Alberta oilsands but don't want to admit that it's cleaner than the oil coming from 3rd world countries and they say that Saudi oil is cleaner??? YOU NEED OIL!

What is the difference between hereditary leader and a monarch or dictator, and why do they have so much power in Canada instead of elected leaders?

sounds like he's a prick who should have did some time in prison. Canada funded these guys and let them get away with first ripping people off, and then running a drug snuggling network.

Kinda sucks when there is so much emphasis on a victim being an “educated” person as if uneducated people are expendable

Oh My Fucking God! Would you like some cheese with that whine?! That big elephant you're talking about counts for about 25% of the country's population. It's only logical that they get at least 25% of the money. Get over yourself.
