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

On this week's show, Toronto Star national politics reporter Alex Boutilier and comedy writer Nick Zarzycki join Vicky and Ishmael to talk about the Conservative leadership convention and whether there was ~FOREIGN INFLUENCE~ in our last federal election in 2015. The panel also dives into why Canada's liquor laws are so restrictive and terrible, and what John A. Macdonald's babysitter has to do with it.
