It's Just Complete Incompetence

It's Just Complete Incompetence

The Legislative Assembly is on break this week, but wow is there a lot to talk about! Eric, Kevin and Dale do a full deep dive on the biggest story of the week: federal justice minister David Lametti's controversial comments about looking into rescinding the Natural Resources Transfer Act to western provinces. They discuss what may have been hidden in the language he used with Indigenous leaders, the communications planning in Scott Moe's office, and the Prime Minister's 180 degree turn on the issue during his Thursday visit to Regina (and whether a tough interview with CBC Regina caused that u-turn). Then, they give a quick Mid-Season Report of the spring legislative session, and finally wrap things up with What Actually Mattered This Week. Thanks for listening!
