The 1% for the Win, Relief for Us, & The Six

The votes are in and the Liberals, Conservatives, & the Bloc voted unilaterally “No” on the NDP’s Action Plan which included a wealth tax, an excess profiteering tax, and a buffet of policy that would fundamentally transform the lives of Canadians. We look at the vote and the motivations behind it.

NDP MP Leah Gazan spoke passionately about the need for a Guaranteed Livable Basic Income from the House of Commons floor. Are legislators listening? Do they care?

Then we’re joined by Toronto corespondent Dylan Day to cover COVID’s outsized impact on the poor and BIPOC communities, questions around the death of Coco in TPS custody, and Doug Ford ramming through Bill 218, limiting corporate liability for deaths caused from COVID & Diminishing democracy.
