A historic week for BC's first Speaker of South Asian descent...nearly overshadowed by questions about his predecessor - and yet another investigation.
Maclean and Jordan discuss Raj Chouhan’s historic ascension to the Speaker’s chair, and his unusual first couple of days on the job; Christmas COVID fallout; QP #1 of this mini-session; high expectations for the NDP’s much-ballyhooed $1,000 COVID payment, and more.
- Last week’s Hotstove looked at critics, COVID, and Canadian debt.
- Maclean Kay thought he wrote his last story about former Speaker Darryl Plecas, but…well, we’ll see what the Victoria Police investigation into “tampering” with the ceremonial mace brings about.
- UnSpun reached a milestone episode last week – but that’s not why you should watch. This was a combative one.
