Recently the so called "migrant crisis" in Central America has been a major topic in the news. Images of women and children being tear gassed at the US border lays bear the moral and humanitarian crisis. But what about Canada? While this news seems far away in fact the Canadian state policies in Central America have contributed much to this crisis. From supporting mining companies that poison the water and displace people from their homes. To the Canadian government legitimizing the government in Honduras that got to power via a coup.
Scott and Greg place the so called "migrant crisis" in the context of Canadian foreign policy and the moral bankruptcy of the human rights troll industrial complex. You will also hear two clips from the Radio Free Winnipeg archive that cover the the lead up and aftermath of the 2009 coup in Honduras.
