Welcome to UnSpun - The Orca's current events podcast and YouTube show. Every week, Jody Vance and George Affleck unspin the latest news in local, provincial, federal politics, and much more.
Jody and George give kudos to Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun, whose leadership is the kind CERTAIN OTHER MAYORS *cough cough* could learn from. Speaking of Vancouver — oops – the bloated budget there needs a fresh set of eyes and ears. Speaking of budgets — what will the new Surrey police force actually cost — no really how much? Does anyone know? Finally, it’s time to talk transit — seriously, how can we help some people understand that mass transit is crucial. And let’s not forget Covid variants. Agh! All this, and…Elvis is in the building.
