In this episode we speak with author and activist, Yves Engler, about Canadian foreign policy and mineral extraction in Africa.

Engler recently wrote an article for rabble.ca contrasting the World Partnership Walk, organized by the Aga Khan Foundation Canada, against the human rights abuses committed by Canadian mining companies on the African continent.

In addition to discussing natural resources companies, we look at the Saudi arms deal, Canadian arms exports, and how it is covered by the media.

We had some good interviews lined up for this show, but due to some unforeseen circumstances they had to be pushed back. So, instead of some insightful conversations with highly qualified individuals, you get the pleasure of listening to Scott and Greg wax philosophic about the lack of class consciousness in conversations about urban issues and recap our previous couple episodes.
