But will the $2.5 million judgment against the far-right twice-defeated mayoral candidate Kevin J. Johnston actually stop him spreading hate online? Jesse speaks with media lawyer Justin Safiyeni, and founding board member of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network Amira Elghawaby about what the ruling means for Johnston and his ilk. This episode is brought to you by listeners like you. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter.
It's Nazi season in Canada! From the "controversial" flag in Saskatchewan to the neo-Nazi working in an Ontario city hall, Canada's working hard to normalize racism. And Mark Norman apparently had it worse than Omar Khadr. Who was in Guantanmo Bay. As a minor. Sandy Garossino co-hosts. Support us on Patreon at patreon.com/CANADALAND.
The new podcast Narcos PQ hands the mic to those who bring Canada its drugs: bikers, drug mules, outlaw chemists. Co-hosts Brigitte Noël and Félix Séguin take over this week to translate some of their most revealing tape, and tell us why we should listen to criminals.  This show was brought to you by our patrons. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter. 
In the prurient rush for lurid details about Bruce McArthur and his victims, maybe it’s time to re-examine the way we consume true crime. And the ongoing saga of the Mark Norman affair becomes even muddier. Deidre Olsen co-hosts. Support us at patreon.com/CANADALAND.
Digital media has been gentrified into a mall, says the digital rights activist and author. Cory Doctorow tells Jesse how consolidation and platform silos keep the biggest tech and media companies on top, at our expense.
Was the recent Simpsons episode about Canada offensive? Was it even funny? And, finally, the mainstream media seems to be paying attention to the rising threat of white terrorism in Canada. Alheli Picazo co-hosts.
A popular pundit has a curious connection: her company worked for China. South China Morning Post's Vancouver correspondent Ian Young tells Jesse that the Canadian media has "blind spots" when it comes to how the Chinese government tries to influence the conversation in Canada. 
Who among us hasn't stabbed a lecherous raccoon with a dessert fork? And Omar Khadr gave his first big interview on Québec television; where was English media on this one? Nora Loreto co-hosts.
And if so, can government regulation crack down on hate speech and election interference on social media without crushing free speech? Jesse asks Natasha Tusikov, a criminology professor who researches where technology and regulation meet. 
Journalism that exposes racism, homophobia, and election fraud: does any of it matter? All of this and more in a look at the Alberta election. And then a check-in with the Globe and Mail's Thunder Bay bureau. Jen Gerson co-hosts.

This is the second time I've listened to this podcast. This one was not good. I'm happy to try a third one to support Canadian political commentary but if you are trying to piss Albertans off, congrats you succeeded.

I enjoyed this pod cast you all came across as smart and concerned... I think their agenda is... Is this journalism... And they won't be confused with the free speach police... I found it informative. Thanks

Why is Canadaland making a full indictment of Winnipeg police for murder without any direct evidence? Not even a qualifier like "alleged"?

when you say "believe in" you sound as if you're talking about religion, not science.

Sophia Perron the point is Jen's bullshit isn't free. Her salary could be given to someone who doesn't do endless garbage takes on subjects she doesn't understand.

Wow. The Sun photographer story did it for me. You denied the facts of the video. Canadaland is now truth bending shot. I am gone. Go broke for me.

Lol the left can do no wrong and the right wants to "kill" the MSM. You sir are fucked. Keep on being you and I'm quickly unsubscribing. That's how the free market, free speech, free thinking world works. The right is not this demon you claim it is but don't look to closely in the mirror. Have a nice life and good luck... you're going to need it
