#158 The Conspiracy Provisions
Another populist businessman turned politician defeats a more-qualified female candidate. Will the Competition Bureau actually do anything other than raid some offices? And does the CBC hate Sikhs?
David Crosbie
Senior Producer
Jesse Brown
Host & Publisher

Kieran Delamont co-hosts.

Correction: in the original version of this podcast, Jesse incorrectly referred to the Gerald Stanley trial as “the Boushie trial”, which is especially embarrassing since he has criticized other media sources for making this exact same mistake. We regret the error.
