  1. I had the privilege of interviewing MP Mark Holland on issues facing Canada from Clean drinking water in Indengoues reserves, Coronavirus outbreak, Affordable housing, and Wexit Canada. You can watch it on youtube Monday 2:15 p.m EST BUT What do you think are the top 5 issues in Canada? Follow me on IG @t.w.t_podcast_
  2. The Harper Government and many Conservative supporters claim that the niqab ban and the barbaric cultural practices laws show how serious the Conservatives are about fighting oppression against women. Here's 11 things (with links to reference materials) that show the Harper Government isn't the least bit serious about stopping the oppression of women. Ending barbaric cultural practices starts by leading as an example. (source) They voted against a national action plan to end violence against women, despite the fact that on average, every six days a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. They closed 75% of Status of Women offices. They voted against a pay equity bill despite the fact that Canadian women make $8000 less yearly than their male counterparts at the same job - a gap that’s double the global average. They closed the long gun registry, a crucial form of gun control created in the wake of the 1989 Ecole Polytechnique femicide, where 14 women were shot and killed by a man. Long guns are the most common type of firearm used in spousal homicides. Over the past decade, 71% of spousal homicides involved rifles and shotguns. They cut $1 billion in childcare funding within 3 hours of being elected. There are 1181 documented murdered and missing Indigenous women across Canada and the United Nations has called for urgent action. In response the Prime Minister said the issue “isn’t really high on our radar” then lied and said “I haven’t said that all.” They eliminated funding to six different Canadian women’s health organizations. They changed immigration rules to force women to stay with a spouse who sponsors them for a minimum of two years. This forces untold numbers of migrant women to stay in relationships with abusive spouses. They eliminated a human rights agency that provided women's health, training and counselling projects in 17 countries around the world. Women of colour are 48% more likely to be unemployed than white men. The Conservatives have eliminated the National Council on Welfarewhich had existed to advise the government on effective welfare policy for 43 years. They then changed Employment Insurance rules require laid-off workers to take jobs they might previously have considered unsuitable, possibly with up to 30 per cent less pay or lose their EI benefits. Canada has fallen to 23rd in the United Nations world ranking of gender inequality. The Conservatives have the lowest percentage of female politicians and Canada now ranks 42nd in the world in terms of female political empowerment.
