Each week, we’ll bring you a panel discussion with Canada’s leading journalists, columnists, politicos, and change makers discussing what’s happening in the newsphere.

This week, we’re joined by journalist, activist, and Green Party of Canada leadership candidate Dimitri Lascaris and National Post columnist Adam Zivo to explore the recent protests against Justin Trudeau. Do they go to far and what do they mean in the broader context of our politics? Then, we veer into the role of media, bias, and the Canadian media landscape before finishing off with a discussion on the Conservative plan to scrap the carbon tax in favour of cap and trade. What matters and what doesn’t in this debate?
