We also chat Liberal leadership polling and a little Ontario politics, plus we discuss the naming of the new female co-spokesperson of Québec Solidaire and sit down for a brief chat with Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, male co-spokesperson of the party.

Today, we're looking at an Alberta NDP sex scandal uncovered by Rebel News, which saw an NDP staffer receive a charge from police and then a promotion from the party afterwards. Plus, anti-Israel protesters in Saskatchewan and Quebec have been blocking trains in an attempt to disrupt the economy, yet the government remains quiet about taking action against the demonstrations. And finally, the public-led National Citizens' Inquiry into Canada's COVID-19 response released its final report.
Lots of your comments on this week's special episode on disinformation. Seems you loved it and want more. Plus the Ranter continues his three-part series on advice for the party leaders -- this week it's for the NDP.
Thrilled to share Part One of my conversation with Jessica, a political educator and former government staff.

The Turnoff Effect: Exploring why the current political system might be disconnecting with the average person and ways to bridge the gap. School Memories: Reflecting on a visit from the Conservative Party's Kim Campbell to Kitsilano Secondary School during my grade 12 year. George Orwell's Influence: Examining the impact of Orwell's views on political language and its manipulation. American vs Canadian Politics: Comparing the distinctive styles of political engagement in the United States and Canada.

Federal vs Provincial Parties: Understanding the distinctions within the political spectrum at different levels. Libertarians and Greens: Exploring the ideologies of Libertarian and Green parties.
About sixty members of Parliament accepted free trips to Israel last week to hear about the Israel-Hamas war. Members of the Liberal and Conservative parties took the deal, and members of the NDP and the Bloc said no. Who is right?
Another day, another tense press conference featuring Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre and the legacy media. Poilievre challenged a Canadian Press reporter's question in an exchange that has legacy media talking heads calling him a “bully” and predicting he'll lose the election. They're used to no one challenging them, True North's Andrew Lawton says. These are the journalists Justin Trudeau just announced even more money for. Kris Sims from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation joins the show to discuss. Plus, the NDP is reportedly going to give the Liberals an extension on coming up with a pharmacare plan and won't be pulling their support from them for failing to do so by the end of this year. Also, a new report from C2C Journal exposes the “dangers and delusions” of central bank digital currencies, which the Bank of Canada is actively exploring. Author Gleb Lisikh weighs in.

After weeks, perhaps months, of being pummeled by the opposition, the media and Good Talk, Justin Trudeau got a bit of a break this week. Pierre Poilievre found his actions under the microscope, and to many, it didn't look good. Bruce and Chantal are all over this on Good Talk this week and they sure don't hold back.
The passing of a cultural icon prompted a lot of emotional reactions from across the country this week. A surprising amount considering many mentioned they had never heard of the person whose memory was being marked. And the Ranter begins a three part series on advice for the nation's political leaders.
On this episode, The complete trio is back together and they sit down with Jason C from the Mash and Drum to drink some Wild Turkey products and discuss some Thanksgiving traditions. Also, in true Jason C fashion, he surprises the fellas with a Wild Turkey distillate from an NDP. Find out what it was on this episode of… The Bourbon Hunters.

We have set the normal political conversation aside for the first segment of Good Talk this week. Instead an emotional discussion about the loss of a Canadian cultural icon. His name -- Karl Tremblay, and for many Canadians they may not have heard of him, but today we'll tell you why he's someone, if you didn't know about, you should. Chantal and Bruce have their memories. Plus more potential splits in both the Liberals and the NDP, and what to expect with Pharmacare next week.
The Conservatives and NDP are pushing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for more breaks from the carbon tax, but an environment commissioner's report questions if enough is being done to reach Canada's climate goals. Plus, will an anti-replacement bill help labour negotiations during strikes? And what to expect from the economic update. Rosemary Barton hosts Chantal Hébert, Andrew Coyne and Althia Raj.
The Conservative's double-digit lead in the polls seems to have the NDP nervous about its deal with the Liberals which helps keep Justin Trudeau in power. Every week it seems the NDP is looking for more concessions from the Liberals to stay on board. How long can that last, how long will it last? Bruce and Chantal are with us with their thoughts.
The trend of cask finished whiskey is here to stay. It's run rampant over the past few years to the point that every single company has one. But how are barrels sourced? How many times can a barrel be used before it longer gives off those different flavors? To answer these questions and a lot more, I've invited Jessica Ann from H&A Barrel Management on the show. We've had the pleasure of knowing Jessica for many years. She recently got herself into the market of brokering barrels for different cask finishes. Jessica gives us the low-down on wine and exotic oak finishes and how difficult they can be to attain. There's a lot to break down such as types of oak, toast level, and if cooperage reputation has any prestige. With the wide variety available, we're going to see even more trends hit the market soon. Show Notes: Above the Char with Fred Minnick (@fredminnick) talks if Pappy is a NDP. How did you and Fred connect? How many times can a barrel be used for wine aging? Why is French Oak the preferred type for wine? If I need barrels, what do you have readily available? What does STR mean? How are different barrels valued? How many times can those barrels be re-used? In the used barrel market are there cooperages that have more prestige? What are some of the newest barrels people want that aren't common? Do customer's ever request different toast and char levels? How do you properly read a wine barrel? Talk about your barrel leasing program. How do you find out about the various oak species available? @bourboninsider Support this podcast on Patreon
Many professions such as doctors, engineers, and architects are regulated to ensure that people providing services to the public are properly trained and competent to practice. The need for this is clear: you want to ensure people receive good medical care and the buildings and bridges don't fall down. The regulation of lawyers has this objective as well: you want to know that you're getting competent legal advice when you hire a lawyer. Because lawyers are often engaged in work that is in opposition to the wishes of the government it is also important that the regulation of lawyers is independent of the government. If you hire a lawyer to defend a criminal case, prevent the government from apprehending your children, challenging the validity of a law, or pursue indigenous rights, you do not want the lawyer to be concerned about the professional consequences of acting in opposition to the government's wishes. This independence is under threat in British Columbia as a result of a proposal to "modernize" the Legal Profession Act in such a way that the provincial government would be able to appoint an increased number of the benchers (directors) that govern the Law Society. As discussed on the show, the government's immediate motivations to take greater control include a wish to avoid providing adequate funding for legal aid services by creating a system of paralegals with less training than lawyers to provide legal services for the poor. The issue of adequate legal aid funding has been pursued by the Law Society for many years. BC is the only province in Canada that imposes a special tax on legal services. The tax was introduced by an NDP government in 1992.When the tax was introduced it was done for the express purpose of funding legal aid. Quickly, however, the tax started collecting more money than the government was providing for legal aid and the extra funds were diverted to general revenue. The government now diverts more than half of the funds collected pursuant to the special tax while dramatically underfunding legal aid services. The diversion of tax revenue from legal aid has resulted in various challenges by the Law Society including a vote to censure a past Attorney General. A history of the funding of legal aid in BC, the special tax, and the disproportionate impact the diversion of revenue from the special tax has had on women can be found here. The government proposal has met with opposition from the Canadian Bar Association, the Victoria Bar Association, the Law Society, and others. As discussed on the show, one of the elected benchers from Victoria, Paul Pearson gave up his position because he works as Crown Counsel and concluded he couldn't effectively oppose the government initiative while also working for the provincial government. His statement outlining the import of what has been proposed can be found here.Follow this link for a transcript of the show and links to the legislation discussed.

If Canadians were voting today, polling shows Pierre Poilievre's Conservatives would form a massive majority government, while Justin Trudeau's Liberals would see their seats cut in half. What's behind such a surge for the CPC? Is the solution to the Liberal Party's woes as simple as a leadership change? And how does Jagmeet Singh's NDP factor into all of this? 2:35 | Professional poll analyst Philippe Fournier says the Conservatives would win 205 seats (up from 117) if an election was held right now, while the Liberals would plummet from 158 to just 81.

We get it. You are ready to close that deal. Whether it's excitement, anxiety or another feeling or reason, many people just want to get through their dental transition and close the deal as quickly as possible. However, speeding through the process can lead to oversight of important details and even complications to the overall transition. NDP's Head of Consulting Bridget Schwebke joins Christy on this episode to walk through some common occurrences and provide tips on how to slow down and treat each phase with diligence.

Today, we're looking at the bombing of a hospital in Gaza and who was responsible for the act after Hamas initially blamed Israel, only for the IDF to release evidence showing it was almost certainly a failed rocket launch at Israel from within Gaza. Plus, the Conservatives tried to force CBC executives to testify in the House of Commons over the state broadcasters refusal to use the word "terrorist," only for the motion to be blocked by the Liberals, NDP and Bloc Quebecois. And finally, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has penned an open letter to Premier Danielle Smith in response to Alberta's proposed exit from the Canada Pension Plan.

NDP leader Jagmeet Singh survived a leadership review on the weekend, though fewer NDP members voted for him than did in his last two reviews.

True North's Andrew Lawton weighs in. Also, the federal government withheld documents from the RCMP, preventing the RCMP from fully investigating the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

Ryan is out living la vida loca again, so Brian sits down with Kenny to discuss the warehouse/studio now being a licensed distillery, and the road it took to get the permitting and licenses over the last year. We hit on: What were the reasons for having the licensed distillery/bottling location, as an NDP, outside of solely the downtown location we previously announced? What did it take to engineer and architect a distillery in the location that you all found? What hurdles did you have to go through that took longer than expected? What hurdles did you have to go through that you didn't expect? What does this mean for the future of Pursuit Spirits, and the downtown location? and much more.
