    Justice and Accountability for the Victims of Flight PS752

    Justice and Accountability for the Victims of Flight PS752

    This episode sounds like the plot line of a Tom Clancy novel however it is real. It is the most shocking and revealing episode to date, retired RCMP Officer Andy Brooke went through the time line of the Iranian terrorist attack that took the lives of 55 Canadians aboard flight PS752, the coverup by Iran, the failure of leadership of the Canadian Government and what actions are being taken to get justice by the families.

    Andy reveals that family members of the victims of PS752 have been harassed by the Iranian Regime and he gives never revealed details about the case until now, including that the lawyer that is representing the families of the victims for the Civil suit claims to have received threatening and distressing E-mails from Government of Canada lawyers.

Super interviewer!

I had the privilege of talking to Russel about life, crime and politics during (and after) my term as an elected voice do the residents of Ward 3 here in Prince Albert.

Russel is super-chilled- and a great host!

Great variety of topics

I love the variety of topics Russell covers. He approaches them with general interest and if they are polarizing topics, he makes sure all sides are represented and explored.
