It’s Friday! Kick back, grab a drink and enjoy the latest episode of Off the Record with Rachel Emmanuel, Noah Jarvis and William McBeath!

Conservatives are up in the polls and everybody knows what that means – abortion scare tactics! This week, Liberal MPs hosted a press conference and accused Pierre Poilievre of infringing on women’s bodily autonomy. Usually the legacy media would eat up these desperate attacks but this time, even Trudeau-friendly reporters called out the Liberals for crying wolf once too often. Sad!

Plus, a new study reveals that the Online News Act, which forces big tech companies to pay legacy media outlets, is a complete failure. Despite Meta’s continuing ban on news content, Canadians are still using Meta platforms like Facebook and Instagram and the law has negatively impacted local news outlets.

And a Calgary judge has ruled that a northwest Calgary home can continue hosting group sex parties, but the organizers aren’t allowed to call it a club. …So that’s interesting.
