Everyday Reconciliation: Understanding Intervention
Colonialism isn’t yet in Canada’s rear-view mirror, especially for the First Nations of this land. Government intervention in First Nations’ governance and administration is a modern reality, and has wide-reaching effects in Indigenous communities.

Open to Debate: How does structural racism shape our politics?
Canada is home to structural racism. As much as some might wish to exempt our provinces, cities, political parties, laws, policies, and institutions from systematic exploitation and discrimination, such practices are routine. They are embedded in the fabric of our social, political, and economic lives. To better understand how these systems work, we look to the very processes by which we are governed and ask: How does structural racism shape our politics? On this episode of Open to Debate, David Moscrop talks with Balarama Holness, Quebec politician, recent Montreal mayoral candidate, and former CFL safety.

Indigenous women and men have signed up to serve and defend Canada in impressive numbers throughout history, an act that has often come at a very high price.

Open to Debate: What is to be done about climate policy?
Climate change is real, it is caused by human beings, and it is an existential threat to humankind. Politicians and industry leaders now claim to be taking it seriously. Their performances often fall short of their promises. Theoretical physicist and author Steven Koonin, however, extends climate critique to scientists and the media, arguing that while climate change is real, the consensus conclusions we have reached are overstated, the science is often miscommunicated or misinterpreted, and our policies are headed in the wrong direction. At Open to Debate, we disagree with Dr. Koonin’s thesis, but we ask nonetheless: What is to be done about climate policy?On this episode of Open to Debate, David Moscrop talks with Steven Koonin, University Professor at New York University and Director of the Center for Urban Science and Progress, former Undersecretary for Science at the U.S. Department of Energy under President Obama, and author of Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn't, and Why It Matters.
Love The 2020 Network! They produce the best content. Always interesting, and I always learn something new.
No Second Chances got me hooked!
Learned about Canada 2020 from listening to the No Second Chances podcast with host Kate Graham. Great listening!
Kind of disappointed the host didn’t ask more in-depth questions in response to some of the information handed out by the guest. Too one sided for me.
