To Block Or Not To Block

To Block Or Not To Block

Kevin has returned! And he's landed smack in the middle of a Twitter brouhaha. The gang discusses the story about Premier Scott Moe's staff blocking some accounts on Twitter, why this particular story matters inside the political bubble, and NDP leader Carla Beck's response to it. Then they discuss local journalism and how recent changes have affected political news coverage in Saskatchewan. Finally, the gang wraps up with analysis on the health care chess match between the Sask. Party and NDP, and tell everyone What Actually Mattered This Week!
