Since we got such great feedback on our discussion on anti-war and anti-imperialism politics we decided to take a whole hour to breakdown these topics in the Canadian context.

We'll use clips from past episodes, comments made by Canadian foreign minster Chrystia Freeland comments on Canada not being an imperial country, the inherent problem in the framework of human rights, and what an anti-war\anti-imperialist movement in Canada might look like. Hope you enjoy our 1 hour extravaganza!
