#742 Updates On Pretendians, Porn, And Being Priced Out Of Life
After we turn off our microphones, here at CANADALAND, the story keeps going. Here are updates on three stories we originally brought you in 2021.

After we turn off our microphones, here at CANADALAND, it would be great to think we brought you the definitive version of the story. But what actually happens is that life keeps on rolling and stories continue to add new chapters.

Three stories CANADALAND originally aired in 2021 demanded that we add another chapter to the story we told.

First, the case of pretendians and how Indigenous identity has been co-opted by people who are not, in fact, Indigenous.

Second, the story of MindGeek, Canada’s largest tech company, that is known the world over for its porn platforms, like Porn Hub. When last we left the company, they were under a fair amount of scrutiny…

And lastly, in October, we brought you the story of Madeline who was considering medically-assisted death once she ran out of money for the expensive treatments she needed to manage her life-long disease. What ever happened to her?
