Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan appears to be dead, and Justin Trudeau’s threats had nothing to do with it. In the aftermath, we wonder, does Justin Trudeau think that the status quo is good enough for Canadian workers?

Justin Trudeau has done a series of in depth interviews lately, in one of which he laments the ‘cynicism of the left’. Is it cynicism or seeing calling out broken promises and unfulfilled advancement?

CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn drops by the CUPE Ontario Union Hall to discuss the highs and lows of 2021, the struggle we’re all feeling with Omicron, and his hopes for building a better Ontario in 2022.
