Andrew Scheer walked away from a scrum when pressed about his campaign manager Hamish Marshall working in far right media company The Rebel’s office during his campaign. Here’s Globe and Mail reporter Laura Stone’s story about that and the video of the press conference.

We look at the language around Gord Downie’s death.

And there are a lot of unanswered questions in the story of freed hostage Joshua Boyle.

Freelancer and former VICE reporter Justin Ling co-hosts.
