Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland holds a news conference in Brampton, Ontario, after touring a local trucking facility. She is joined by Liberal MPs Shafqat Ali (Brampton Centre), Ruby Sahota (Brampton North), Maninder Sidhu (Brampton East) and Sonia Sidhu (Brampton South), Tanvir Singh (operations manager, KJS Transport Inc.) and Bob Punia (Ontario Dump Truck Association). She responds to questions on a new Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' study that says the Bank of Canada's strategy for tackling inflation may trigger a recession, what the federal government plans to do offset the increasing cost of fuel and gas, and the necessity of maintaining the ArriveCan app for travellers entering Canada.In Toronto, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delivers remarks ahead of a roundtable discussion with community leaders on gun violence. He is joined by Masai Ujiri, president of the Toronto Raptors and co-founder of Giants of Africa.
In Episode 1209, Sean Woodley is joined by Katie Heindl (DIME, Basketball Feelings) to discuss the potential downsides of the Toronto Raptors trading for disgruntled Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, before taking a look at the Raptors' Summer League roster. Off the top, Sean and Katie talk about the risks involved with a Durant trade, and why any comparisons to the plunge Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster took in acquiring Kawhi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs simply don't compute. Next, they talk about whether the Raptors should be wary of becoming known as the franchise that will quickly ship off beloved franchise icons in the interest of superstar acquisitions. Doing it once with DeMar DeRozan made some sense and led to a championship -- but is it worth gaining that reputation even further for a KD deal, especially if it comes at the cost of one of Scottie Barnes or Pascal Siakam? Lastly, Sean and Katie take a look at the Vegas Summer League roster the Raptors announced on Monday, which includes some fun names like Dalano Banton, Justin Champagnie, DJ Wilson and CEBL standout Christian Vital, but also includes Rodions Kurucs, whose history of domestic violence combined with his very clear lack of NBA-level talent is a puzzling and disappointing inclusion on the team. Be sure to read Katie's piece making the case against a KD trade for the Raptors here: https://uproxx.com/dimemag/toronto-raptors-kevin-durant-nba-trade-rumors/ And because the Kurucs inclusion on the Summer League roster unfortunately makes it timely again, read Katie's piece in response to the Miles Bridges case from Basketball Feelings last week: https://basketballfeelings.substack.com/p/by-the-numbers Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

In Episode 1195, Sean Woodley goes solo for another off-season Wednesday mailbag episode to answer a handful of interesting Toronto Raptors-related questions. Off the top, Sean examines what the Raptors might be able to do to grease the wheels of their half court offense next season, from unlocking Precious Achiuwa as a vertical role threat, to simply running a little more pick-and-roll, and banking on some internal developement both from Toronto's playmakers and shooters. Next, Sean digs into the question of who will be the #2 player in usage on next year's team behind Pascal Siakam. Will Scottie Barnes be turned loose as a scorer and creator? Or will Fred VanVleet, Gary Trent Jr. or OG Anunoby end up being the team's second-most used offensive player? Plus, Sean offers some quick thoughts on Raptors 905 losing head coach Patrick Mutumbo to the Phoenix Suns. Lastly, Sean talks about whether the Raptors could find themselves in any sort of salary cap peril in the coming years, and why he typically feels pretty comfortable with Bobby Webster and Masai Ujiri's ability to wriggle out of cap trouble. And lastly, will Justin Champagnie be a rotation player next year? Sean sure thinks so. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Off the top, Sean and Samson dig into their biggest positive takeaways from Achiuwa's first season in Toronto. While he may not be the best overall defender on the Raptors just yet, he certainly is capable of the highest highs, and he just might be the guy who unlocks Vision 6'9 as a viable team building model for Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster. Next, they talk about the areas of Achiuwa's game that need the most work, which are mostly confined to the offensive end of the floor. He siimply needs to learn to set a darn screen! To close out the show, Sean and Samson share their favourite Precious plays of the year, their most intriguing stats on Achiuwa's ledger from the season, and take a look at what to expect from him going into 2022-23.

In Episode 1171, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the season-ending press conference by Toronto Raptors vice chairman Masai Ujiri. Off the top, Sean details why the degree to which Masai preached the importance of patience in the building of the team should be music to fans' ears, considering that it suggests the Raptors will not skip steps as they look to straddle the line between winning and development. Sean then digs into an interesting question asked by Raptors sideline reporter Amy Audibert regarding the non-negotiable traits the Raptors look for in the players they bring in, and how Ujiri's answer suggests the Raptors are very much okay with leaning fully into the novel playing style they deployed this season. Lastly, Sean plays Masai's touching words about the growth of Pascal Siakam and the way he perservered through his low points to regain All-NBA status this season, and talks about why they feel like a confirmation that Siakam is here for the long haul.

We are back, and have an episode for you that we recorded in person! Jeremy came back to the very nice and fun city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada for a visit, so instead of hanging out we recorded an all-timer episode. We were joined by the amazing Bronwen Tucker (@bronwentucker) from Climate Justice Edmonton and the incredible Stefan Hostetter (@Steho)_ of Green Majority Radio to talk about Canadian punditry's pathetic attempts to talk about the climate. The first column we cover this week is one written by Jesse Kline. Kline desperately attempts to use the Liberal Party's new environment minister Steven Guilbeault as a way of framing the current government's environmental policies as radical.
