As the Liberal government continues to drag in the polls, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has set out to put himself out in front of more Canadians – evidently of the mind that he’s the solution and not the problem. In one podcast interview this week, Trudeau accused Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre of feeding into angry populism rather than providing solutions. True North’s Andrew Lawton weighs in.

Also, Canadian Armed Forces soldiers who were expelled because they didn’t get vaccinated against COVID-19 have received waivers allowing them to return to work. Is this a step in the right direction or too little too late? Lawyer Catherine Christensen of Valour Law joins to discuss.

Plus, the federal government says plastic is a toxin – using that argument as a rationale to regulate and restrict plastics. This comes as a massive U.N. summit convenes in Ottawa with the goal of setting up a “plastics treaty.” Andrew unpacks with plastics scientist Chris DeArmitt of Phantom Plastics.
