On this episode he joins host Andre Goulet for a conversation exploring the personalities and policies behind the rise to power of the most progressive Canadian municipal political movement in recent memory, and examines what the future might hold for their ambitious agenda to transform Montreal into a green, human-scale city.
Plus: Newfoundland-bound comedian James Brown says 'au revoir' forever to his home of 7 years in a sweetly sentimental farewell to the sins and satisfactions of life in la belle ville.

Trudeau Two: Electric Boogaloo
This podcast is a refreshing take on Canadian politics with just the right amount of time spent on Justin Trudeau’s facial hair. The recent Pandemic Pals series was a lovely balance of hope and despair.
Within 3 minutes of my first listen I knew this show was for me. Keep telling it real.
Unabashedly misrepresents ideas right of centre as far-right, racist, xenophobic etc. Making those problems seem more mainstream than the fringe that they really are. Ironically stirring more division while pointing the finger of causing division.
