In this episode, Sandy and Nora talk about the Vancouver Sun’s decision to publish (and then unpublish) an opinion piece advocating full-score white nationalism, and the problems that politicians face when they call themselves progressive but support increasing police budgets (and are then called out).
In this episode, Sandy and Nora talk about how progressives should orient themselves towards the federal election. Hint: drop the partisanship, get involved in a local campaign if the candidate is worth your time and don’t imagine that voting is the sum total of democratic involvement.
