It’s been a incredibly busy week in Canadian politics and current affairs and this episode is full to the brim.

We explore the results of the BC, SK, & federal by-elections and ask the question, does the NDP have a national strategy?

We dive into the new release from our comrades at the Centre for Canadian Progress and discuss their new report, Paying into the Community Chest: The Case for a Progressive Wealth Tax for Canada, and what the policy could do to transform our society.

Alberta healthcare support workers are on the picket line in a wildcat strike! The DSC stands with them in the fight for their livelihoods and the battle against the privatization of our healthcare.

Then we’re joined by Montréal correspondent, Ashwin Nair, to discuss the damage of the proposed GNL pipeline in Quebec and how a racial slur has become a rallying cry for francophone conservatives.
