If the Liberal government’s controversial Online Harms Act passes, the “digital safety commission” the bill establishes will have 330 staff and cost Canadian taxpayers more than $200 million, the Parliamentary Budget Officer has said. True North’s Andrew Lawton says even if it cost nothing, it would still be wrong, but it’s especially bad that Canadians will have to pay the government to police how they use the internet. He discusses with Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner and Peter Menzies of The Rewrite.

Also, are teachers’ colleges the best way to ensure children are getting the best education they can? A new piece in the Hub from Caylan Ford, the founder of the Alberta Classical Academy, says no. She joins to explain why not.

Plus, Andrew will be speaking at the 2024 Freedom Talk in Alberta this weekend about the decline and fall of western civilization, among cheerier subjects. Conference organizer Danny Hozack returns to the show to talk about what the stakes are and why the conversation matters.
