#54 Canada is Hip and Sophie Trudeau is a Disney Princess
Omar Mouallem discusses Canada's new hip status, Vancity Buzz's release of an unblurred photo leaked from police and job cuts at Postmedia.

The New York Times declares Canada is hip, while the Prime Minister’s wife breaks into song. The press casts suspicion on three innocent men for taking video at a Vancouver mall. Job losses continue at Postmedia after President and CEO Paul Godfrey emails the wrong person about a secret meeting. Omar Mouallem returns as co-host.
