Safe Space


Why does Canada jail immigrants? Should athletes just stick to sports? Do we have to pick between pipelines and the environment? What exactly is a Blake Shelton? 

Led by Vicky Mochama (StarMetro) and Ishmael Daro (Buzzfeed), a panel of smart, funny, and delightful people walk listeners through the questions that are shaping Canada. We hope to find some answers but if we can't do that, we'll at least have fun on the way

May 19, 2017

Toronto Star columnist Shree Paradkar and human rights activist Amira Elghawaby are on Safe Space to talk about the "Appropriation Prize" controversy, and whether Jagmeet Singh can save the NDP with his sharp suits and killer Instagram pics. The panel also talk about what a tough year it's been for Canadian Muslims, even though we now have full Sharia law thanks to Justin Trudeau's government. 

Vicky is away this week, so Ishmael is joined by guest co-host Elamin Abdelmahmoud.
