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.

Are you f*cking serious Canadaland? You're saying that a vigil for a 13 year old murdered Chinese girl is wrong, and that her life should NOT be remembered? This is the 3rd time that Canadaland has mentioned this murder only in passing not that the murder was bad, but rather how it might make Justin Trudeau look bad for fast tracking the murderer into Canada.

Wow 40 minutes of listening to a spoiled rich brat bitching about how tough it is growing up rich. What a waste of an episode.
