After secrets were revealed and hypocrisies exposed, journalist Martin Forgues, political analyst Ludvic Moquin-Beaudry, politics scholar Maika Sondarjee and host Andre Goulet discuss the slow-motion implosion of the Liberal Party campaign in Canada.
They also talk about how Canadian media are dramatically unequipped to handle the discourse behind Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “blackface” history, and why Canada’s unwillingness to grapple with systemic racism has become the underlying theme of the federal election, which takes place on October 21.
Plus, correspondent Anna Roach speaks with labor organizer Thomas McKechnie on the movement to unionize Foodora in Toronto.
