Mark Stallard and Ryan Janz explore the world of politics through the lens of regular working people. Legislation that seems to be "common sense" is often totally destructive, while "weird" and "radical" legislation might save lives, or at least improve them.

Politics is a game for those playing it (politicians), but for working people it can mean life or death.

Don’t think politics affects you? The reason we only get 2 weeks vacation in Manitoba while France gets 5 weeks is pure politics.

Would you like more vacation time? Get involved.

    Fixing Backdoor Legislation During the Virus Crisis (Part 2)

    Fixing Backdoor Legislation During the Virus Crisis (Part 2)

    Part 2: During every crisis the general public is usually preoccupied by the crisis to give anything else their full attention--if at all.

    Politicians know this. So it is the perfect time to for governments to push through legislation that might otherwise have been given too much scrutiny for it to pass, or at least to pass without people realizing how bad it is.

    In this episode, Mark and Ryan reveal the shallowness of federal Liberals who give themselves a pay raise under the guise of charity, PM Justin Trudeau approving the arms deal with Saudi Arabia, as well as Trudeau signing a deal with Amazon to deliver PPE (Personal Protective equipment) around Canada--despite having a perfectly functional Canada Post and Amazon's horrific treatment of it's workers.

    In this episode, Mark and Ryan talk about shortsighted move by Manitoba PCs to change the election blackout laws, federal Conservatives bid to increase the tax credit laws which will only really benefit the super rich, and federal Liberals breaking election laws by using the government seal for obviously partisan advertising.

    Fixing Breakfast

    Fixing Breakfast

    “Progressive” Conservative MLA, James Teitsma, came out wholeheartedly against a universal breakfast program that would provide poor children with food. Rather than blame the real source of their family’s poverty, he blames the powerless.
