Something strange has been going on for the last little while and we’re ready to talk about it. This is a story about a Republican-affiliated scheme against Canadaland and yes, we’re serious.   The Executive Director of WE Charity, Dalal Al-Wahedi states: Navigator is a long-time supporter of WE Charity. Since May 2017, the charity has engaged Navigator in an advisory capacity. This work has been limited in scope to strategic advice, assisting with drafting press releases statements and in reviewing legal texts. Navigator has not been engaged in any online, editorial, media, partner or public outreach. Mr. Portela contacted WE in the fall for comment for his article, but WE declined to comment. WE Charity and its team have never heard of “Riverwood Strategies” and/or any of its representatives. And WE Charity has had no relationship(s) whatsoever with any of the other names mentioned in your email. WE Charity has been contacted by literally hundreds of people across Canada and the United States who have universally expressed their deep frustration with the false reporting of Canadaland, including the website knowingly publishing multiple disproven claims, manufactured evidence such as digitally altered images, and continuously failing to correct when presented with clear and undisputable facts. Canadaland, Jesse Brown, and Jaren Kerr have all wrongly implied, at multiple points via social media and articles, that “difficulties” experienced by their website and blog posts could be attributed to WE Charity, including at one occasion, pointing to its temporary Internet outage, and on another occasion, pointing to crude social media bots. As was the case with WE Charity’s formal communications at the time to Canadaland, WE Charity strongly rejects and has repeatedly rejected these false claims. We refer to the note which was communicated to your legal counsel on November 18th, 2018: “The clear implication is that my clients have had some responsibility for the generation of the messages. These messages did not emanate from our clients nor were they authorized by them. Any contrary allegation or innuendo by Mr. Brown, Mr. Kerr or Canadaland will be relied on in the pending libel proceedings as further evidence of their malice toward our clients.”   ADDITIONAL MUSIC CREDITS: “A List of Ways to Die” by Lee Rosevere, adapted
What better way to recognize a climate emergency than by approving the Trans Mountain Pipeline? Why did the Raptors’ president get carded after his team won? And what's with U.S. media suddenly paying attention to Indigenous people in Canada? Ryan McMahon guest hosts, and Andray Domise co-hosts. This episode is brought to you by our listeners. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter. 
Greed, money, and revenge culminate with a gruesome murder on the driveway of a Vancouver mansion. Canada correspondent for The New York Times, Dan Bilefsky, talks about what happens when the Canadian dream goes very, very wrong and the weird balkanization of Canadian news.

From my experience of calling off the voting and going anywhere else but to the ballots, this is the worst idea ever. that's what causes trumps and other morons get elected. never ever do that...

if you don't want to glorify this career choice then why do you ask who the coolest person was that the journalist had ever met and talk with such obvious relish of the pride of the man who first donned the jacket of his gang?

I will never forget her interview with Kurt Vonnegut a couple of years before his death.Bush era, she said that a lot of Canadians supported Bush. He told her to go jump in a lake.

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.

more coverage for WE isn't in the budget, but Jen Gerson's trash takes are. 🙄

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.
