In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Born in Somalia, Ayaan was subjected to FGM (female genital mutilation) as a child, then forced marriage, at which point she fled to Holland and sought political asylum. There, she worked her way up from being a janitor to serving as an elected member of the Dutch parliament, where she campaigned to raise awareness of violence against women, honor killings and FGM. In 2004, Theo van Gogh, the director of Ayaan's short film, "Submission," about the oppression of women under Islam, was murdered by an Islamic extremist. The assassin left a death threat for Ayaan pinned to Van Gogh's chest. Her new book, "Prey: Immigration, Islam, and the Erosion of Women’s  Rights," addresses the undermining of women’s rights in Europe in the wake of mass migration.  Watch this episode on YouTube.

On Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced new travel restrictions in Canada, including forcing Canadians returning home to quarantine in a government-designated hotel, on their own dime, which Trudeau promises will cost at least $2000. This is despite the fact that international travel accounts for just two per cent of COVID-19 cases in Canada. The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) is fighting back, having already mounted a number of challenges in response to Covid-related restrictions, and recently announced that immediate legal action is being prepared against the Trudeau government over the declaration that Canadian residents will be subjected to mandatory quarantine, at their own expense, after returning from international travel, regardless of their negative COVID status. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Lisa Bildy about the Covid response in Canada and how the JCCF is fighting back. Lisa has worked with the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms since 2019.  Watch this episode on YouTube. Please support The Same Drugs (and gain early access to select content) on Patreon.
