Enjoyable

Really enjoying these serious conversations with interesting people from across the political spectrum. Great questions from Sean Speer.

I tried it

If you stereotype people, it’s extremely hard to listen to information you provide and respect it.

Episode 5 Friday Feb 25 episode

This episode was awesome. Just think the Prime Minister thinks you program is offensive and applies the emergency rule to freeze accounts of all you subscribers. That is the power the Canadian prime minister has and can exercise that all but himself!

Be very careful that you want the government to solve all of our problems. Our minister of finance dies not even have the skills to solve any problem, overreaction is an affliction of government folks.

Even you guys have to be careful. Sitting at home behind your screens and looking only at social media and your likeminded friends on Twitter is dangerous.

In my work I meet lots of real people who cannot work at home and are not glued to a screen.

Your example of the lady in Ontario checking her bank account is legion.

The powers to attack bank accounts in this situation is the most dangerous government incursion to private lives of innocent people ( like you explained) must never be allowed again.
