Episode 61 – Are the Liberals bowing to white nationalists?

The biggest story from the 2019 budget barely made the news — the Liberals are tightening border security and making it much more difficult for people to seek asylum, including making it illegal to claim asylum from the United States. Sandy and Nora examine these new anti-refugee policies (including Doug Ford’s cuts to legal aid) and ask progressives to do what they can to make noise to oppose these new policy measures.

 

Episode 27 – Dutty Doug Ford

Doug Ford’s campaign of shock and awe is well underway. Sandy and Nora talk about some of the changes, and how Ford’s “For the People” rhetoric leaves behind anyone who isn’t white and male and healthy and rich.

Since we recorded, Ford cancelled all Ministry work on Truth and Reconciliation curriculum and a $100 million fund to fix schools. Students, teachers : not “people” under Ford’s regime.

Episode 19: To be not a man online.

Sandy and Nora dive into the Toronto attack and what we know of the world that Alek Minassian is thought to have been a part  of. From MRAs to real-life violence, why don’t men believe women, and where are men in responding to other men?

Episode 6: police, racism and journalists who just don’t get it

On the long-awaited Episode 6, Sandy and Nora talk about financial literacy curriculum, Nazis in the Toronto Library and police in schools, and how on each story, journalists keep getting it wrong.

Episode 4: police, Pride and protecting their own

In this episode, Sandy and Nora talk about the Ottawa police and wristbands, remembering Abdirahman Abdi, Pride Toronto and the history of policing in general.

The police show — not likely to be our last police show.
