Co-host Omar Mouallem lives in the Edmonton neighbourhood where the terror attack took place over the weekend. He discusses what he saw in the news versus what he saw in real life. He also wrote about this for The Walrus.

On Jagmeet Singh’s first interview with CBC’s Power and Politics as the NDP’s leader, Terry Milewski takes the opportunity to grill him about the Air India bomber. Here’s an earlier piece Terry did about Sikh politics in Canada called “Samosa Politics.” 

The takes are in for Government’s new #DigiCanCon plan, AKA The Netflix Deal, to revamp the Canadian content industry.
