We’re back with a special Saturday edition of our two-part election primer. Here to get you ready for what could happen on Monday before you head to the polls. If you haven’t listened to Part 1 yet, go back and do that now. It’s all about what a Liberal minority would look like. Today, we’re doing essentially the same thing, but we’re going to look at the possibility of a Conservative minority.Host Tamara Khandaker is joined once again by Global’s chief political correspondent David Akin.
As we get closer to the election, it seems more and more likely that for the first time since 2011, we are headed toward a minority government in Canada. This means that whoever ends up forming government is mostly likely going to have to work with other parties to get anything done.Host Tamara Khandaker talks to Global’s chief political correspondent David Akin about a possible Liberal minority government. What would that look like? Listen tomorrow for the second half of our conversation on a possible Conservative minority government.
As of today, cannabis edibles are legal in Canada, even through commercial products aren’t likely to be seen until mid-December. It’s also been a year since recreational weed was legalized in Canada. At the time, a lot of people seemed excited, but things haven’t gone quite according to plan. It’s been kind of a mess on every front — for the consumer, for the government, for the investor.Host Tamara Khandaker checks in with Chris Damas, who writes a monthly cannabis-stock newsletter called the BCMI Cannabis Report. They go back and look at everything that went wrong, and look at what the entry of new products, like edibles and vape pens, mean for the industry’s future.
Canadians head to the ballot box in just five days. But polling data still hasn’t changed much from where it was at the start of the federal election campaign five weeks ago. Why?Guest host Amanda Connolly is joined by Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos, to break down where the numbers stand as the federal campaign enters its last push, as well as which parties are benefiting the most from some surprising shifts in voter opinion, and what happens if Canadians elect a minority government.
Things in Syria are moving at a dizzying pace.Today is the second part of our conversation with Global News investigative journalist Stewart Bell, who recently returned from a reporting trip with Prof. Amarnath Amarasingam of Queen’s University, and Leah West, a national security law expert at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.Host Tamara Khandaker is joined by both Stewart and Leah to discuss the Canadians they met while in Syria  ⁠— Canadians who left to join ISIS ⁠— and their families, who have since been captured by Kurdish forces and are now stuck in limbo, waiting to be set free or for Canada to bring them home.If you missed it on Friday, you can listen to the first part of our conversation with Stewart here, or scroll back in your feed.
On Sunday, Donald Trump made the very sudden decision to pull U.S. troops out of northeastern Syria, leaving the Syrian Democratic forces (SDF) on their own in that part of the country, as Turkish forces moved in across the Syrian border. In the midst of all this are the tens of thousands of ISIS fighters who’ve been captured by the SDF. As well as their wives and children.Host Tamara Khandaker talks to Global News investigative journalist Stewart Bell who was in Syria last week. They take you inside the Al-Hawl camp, where tens of thousands of women and children, many of whom are loyal to ISIS, are being held. What do the latest developments mean for them?
Home prices, rent, the cost of medicine, cell phone bills, child care, tuition . . . all of these things have been going up while our wages have stayed the same. Affordability has been a big topic of conversation this campaign, but it would be impossible to tackle all of the pledges that have been made. Instead, we’re going to focus on a few key things: housing, taxes, and education.Host Tamara Khandaker is joined first by Mike Colledge, president of Ipsos Public Affairs Canada to walk through the numbers. Then she talks to Global’s money and consumer reporter Erica Alini on what the parties are promising.
True crime is a wildly popular genre across platforms, but podcasters are producing some of the best long-form investigative journalism out there. On Tuesday, Curiouscast launched Season 2 of Crime Beat. It’s a journalistic true-crime podcast focused on some of Canada’s most high-profile cases.Tamara Khandaker is joined today by Crime Beat host and Global News reporter Nancy Hixt. They talk about listeners’ fascination with true crime, what makes Crime Beat different, and offer a preview of what the new season has in store.
Over the years, the NBA has garnered a reputation for being the progressive sports league — one that allowed its people to speak their minds. But late last week, after the general manager of the Houston Rockets tweeted in support of pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong, there was swift backlash from the league’s business partners in China, leading the NBA to issue an apology in both English and Chinese. Host Tamara Khandaker talks to Washington Post reporter Cindy Boren, who covers sports with a focus on politics. They discuss what the NBA has traditionally stood for, and how far it’s willing to take those principles when the bottom line is at stake.
Tonight will be your last chance to watch the federal party leaders face off in the final English-language debate ahead of the election. All six party leaders will be on stage — including Maxime Bernier. The two-hour live debate will be divided into five segments, each with their own theme: affordability, environment and energy, Indigenous issues, leadership and Canada on the world stage, and lastly, polarization, human rights and immigration.Co-host Amanda Connolly is back with another special episode from the Parliamentary bureau. She’s joined by communications strategist Barry McLoughlin, who has worked with Canadian leaders across the political spectrum, to discuss how party leaders prepare for these debates. She also talks to Global’s chief political correspondent David Akin on the hot topics to watch for tonight.
