Supriya and Vicky want to know what the Brexit means for us. Does a vote for the United Kingdom to leave the EU change our lives on this side of the ocean?

Armine Yalnizyan, senior economist for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, talks about why the shift in global markets matters for everyone, whether or not you can even dream of investing.

Freelance journalist and political analyst Steven Zhou gives some social context to the vote.

Plus, Vicky and Supriya discuss Black Lives Matter’s disruption of the Toronto Pride Parade.
