Blueprints of Disruption

Topic 1: Canadian political elites worried?

Relentless pressure from activists was too much for the BC NDP to handle, forcing MLA Selina Robinson to lose her position in the Cabinet. This has politicians and their inner circles closing ranks around and pushing back against the more aggressive tactics being deployed by grassroots activists.

What has them so worried?

Topic 2: Nicaragua Put Complicit Countries on Notice

With the possibility of another ICJ trial in the news, this time with Canada as a target has our hosts looking at International Law and its obvious limitations.

Topic 3: Canada's Special Visa Program for Gaza

This is not the humanitarian gesture it was sold as. The shortcomings, paired with other foreign policy moves this week seem very performative.

Our hosts discuss these and other updates related to the siege on Gaza.
