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, 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

Chatelaine associate editor Sadiya Ansari and National Post reporter Tristin Hopper join Vicky and Ishmael on the show this week. They talk about the big budget news: is it really new or is it the same budget, different year? But there are big changes in Alberta where Jason Kenney has won the Progressive Conservative leadership by promising to 'unite the right'. Tristin give us an expert overview of what that means for Alberta politics. And a Maclean's piece seems to have lost the writer his side-gig in academia. Is this a question of academic freedom or simply a case of cause meeting effect?
In Takeaways this week, Sadiya makes a case for sweetness, Tristin argues against homework, Vicky demands tax breaks for the childfree and Ishmael goes in on dark chocolate.
