The new Ontario government is changing the way municipalities contract construction companies making it easier for non-union companies to get work. We talk about why that’s a good change for businesses like Stadia.
We also debate the effectiveness of a carbon tax. I argue that it’s manufactures not consumers that should have to bear the brunt of reducing our carbon footprint. Not everyone is going to like this conversation but it is going to get you thinking!
Faith Goldy was easily the most controversial candidate in the 2018 Toronto Municipal election. So it came as a considerable shock when she came in third. That only meant she got 25 thousand votes. But it was more than was expected for the alt-right firebrand who has garnered a ton of negativepress. I decided to invite her back on the show to interrogate some of her more contentious ideas.
We debate her views on Islam, immigration and her tendency to use apocalyptic language. We talked about the chaos of the Trump administration – something that I thinks turns off most voters. In the end I think Faith’s highly-charged negative worldview is going to doom her chances of going mainstream.
But I’m glad I had her on because her views are gaining more and more traction around the world. It’s important for everyone to hear what she has to say in order to form their own opinion of her and the alt-right.
Tim is joined by Anthony Vinzi to talk about a bunch of things affecting Canadians this week. Canada Post is in the midst of a rotating strike across the country. This raises the question: What’s the point of Canada Post anyway? Our heroes talk about why small business needs to get ready for a recession. And the pair savage Trudeau’s plan to allow the census to access your tax records.
