Former BC Premier Ujjal Dosanjh recently argued that political correctness is stifling white men.
Jonathan Kay, editor-in-chief of The Walrus*, has written about political correctness in the past, so we invited him on the show to talk about what that term means and whether powerful white men – like himself – are being forced to self-censor.
And cultural critic Septembre Anderson returns. She says power structures are a key idea missing from Dosanjh’s piece.
Ujjal Dosanjh did not respond to a request to appear on COMMONS.
*Full disclosure: Andray is currently writing an article for The Walrus. Desmond has written for the magazine in the past.
