Is the government coming to take your guns? Was scrapping the long-gun registry a mistake? Do we need stricter gun laws? Does the Liberal plan to ban handguns actually make sense? We scope out the current stock of firearm laws in Canada and take a look at what's coming down the barrel.

With the election of Jason Kenney's United Conservative Party in Alberta, the national alliance of conservative premiers has gained a key member in its battle against the federal Liberals. In this episode, we take look at what's going on in Canada from coast to coast to coast.

The Alberta election was Jason Kenney's to lose, and with bozos raining down like a nauseating Vesuvius, it looks like he just might. And in the wake of the SNC-Lavalin scandal, there are now 21 MPs who aren't members of the three major parties. How did it get this way, and what kind of influence can they wield?
The Alberta election is around the corner and, in characteristic fashion, it is looking bananas. And we read the federal budget so you don't have to. Plus, an update on the scandal that keeps giving. Finally, some serious news from the OPPO team.
What's going to be the downfall of the Trudeau administration? It might not be the scandal you're thinking of.  Then again, it might be that scandal.

Came here from the show Canada land.... You sound intelligent and are well spoken people.. The swearing degrades the conversation... Only because of the obvious great vocabulary you folks actually have... You gun pod cast. And yes I support fee speach... 100 percent I would be enraged if someone said your show should be canceled for swearing... I'm suggesting you keep it classy and use it for impact and less recess talk in the school yard... Your fan... All the best

Yes, canada limits supply of dairy to keeps prices high but the US subsidizes dairy to keep prices low so without tarriffs canadian dairy farmers would be out of business from dumping subsidized dairy from the US and elsewhere
