Who is that new Supreme Court Judge?

November 30, 2017

So episode 68 – a new record.  But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast – right? You should.

Hey look we have a sponsor! Let the podcast money start rolling in! But seriously a huge thanks to Emond Publishing!

A special guest! Ian Bushfield – the Executive Director of the @BCHumanist@bccla board member, and the left half of @PolitiCoastPod – returns to talk about the Supreme Court.

But we start with the important stuff – a deep dive into the red hot debate about the best Canadian TV show of all time. And I have an epiphany about Danger Bay.

Then we dive into some law an politics. Justin Trudeau announced his new pick for the Supreme Court – Sheilah Martin. We give the honest of hot takes on the new appointment.

We also take a look at the government’s historic apology for past LGBTQ2 discrimination and ask why is legislation that would repeal zombie laws – including some of the discriminatory and unconstitutional offences that were used against LGBTQ2 communities – stalled at first reading?

Then we take a look look at some other legislation that seems to be stalled. As the Supreme Court is set to hear a constitutional challenged to the Conservative victim fine surcharge legislation the current government seems content to let their legislative fix languish at fist reading.

We also take a quick look at the Bill Morneau debacle, why we need a law reform commission, and as usual talk about pot and pardons.

We also have some new art – it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week – from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle – serious he is crazy good – go check out his work.
