High quality non-bias reporting. The CBC did an outstanding job. It showed in-depth view into the case and the underlying racism towards indigenous peoples in Saskatchewan and in Canada as a whole. I’m happy they addressed the comments. They are even racist comments on the reviews of this magnificent podcast. Highly recommend.
I live in North Battleford and have been waiting for something like this.
extreme leftist bias from CBC
EXTREME bias in this podcast. Lots of pearl-clutching about how much evil racist online chatter the case generated. NO talk about the legitimate fears of whites in the area over out of control indigenous crime. NO talk about the underlying ANTI-WHITE RACISM that led a bunch of drunken natives with a flat tire to try to STEAL vehicles from two different farms instead of just ASKING FOR HELP. Gerald Stanley's whole defence was based on the claim that his handgun malfunctioned, so you'd think that CBC might use some of your tax money to bring in a firearms expert? No, instead we get stuck hearing the host talk about the gun's "clip" at least twice.
