As we near the year anniversary of C*VID shutting down the country, we thought we’d spend some time unpacking the pandemic from a critical perspective. In this episode, we speak with Trent Professor Colleen O’Manique who graciously answered our 1 million questions. How is the Canadian government failing citizens? MANY WAYS (but it’s been a long time coming). Should we have seen this abysmal governmental failure coming? YES. Can governments do better? Again, YES. How did we get here and will it happen again? -- probably!? Should we be hopeful? MAYBE. Have a listen and find out where O’Manique finds optimism. Welcome to the hellscape! We’re glad you’re here with us.
