It's A Very, Very Emotional Issue

It's A Very, Very Emotional Issue

Another great episode is in store, with Eric Bell returning while Sally continues her worldwide sojourn! Kevin, Eric and Dale discuss the latest political maneuverings and communications on the health care front, including the NDP doing a press conference in Warman (are they targeting that constituency?!) and the Saskatchewan Party government putting a lot of emphasis on successes of their retention and recruitment plans for healthcare workers. Then, they discuss the state of the labour movement and its place in the political machinations of this moment in Saskatchewan, and long-time labour minister Don Morgan's influence and relationships with labour leaders. Finally, the guys give their thoughts on what actually mattered this week!
