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 brought you in 2021 and 2022 demanded that we publish an update.
First, the latest from the two communities that might soon be home to all of Canada’s high-grade nuclear waste. Second, we check in on Ari Ben-Menashe and what the international lobbyist-for-hire has been up to since he began repping Myanmar’s military junta in 2021. And lastly, we bring you an update on Starbucks’ unionization that is more of a mea culpa than a new development but adds to the story we originally told you all the same.

When an Opioid Crisis hits a First Nation it’s different than in a city. In the city the addicted are mostly strangers. But in Pikwakanagan, if you see somebody behaving strangely on the reserve, you know them. You know your neighbor's business. You are your brother's keeper. So addiction is not just about the pain of losing somebody you love. It's about desperately hoping to save someone you love or protect someone you love.
