First Scott and Greg address the recent events in Venezuela, the attempted coup and what our position should be. Anti-imperialism for the win!
Recently an indigenous man was shot and killed in Winnipeg's West End. Scott and Greg break down the reporting on it and the media apologetics for the cops.
Last Scott and Greg talk about the recent fires that have ripped through apartments in the West End and have left around 100 people displaced and without a home. They break down why there is a lack of affordable and safe housing in inner city Winnipeg, how landlords exploit that situation and how the "meth crisis" does a lot of heavy lifting to explain away these situations.
