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 talk about city budgets. One that is too much — Vancouver. And another that does not exist yet — Surrey. Crime is also a hot topic. A recent attack on an MLA in Victoria renews calls to start taking unprovoked physical attacks and crime in general in our communities more seriously. The new Covid variant — a tempest in a teapot or valid international concern? Maybe both? And finally – Canucks hockey fans, have they gone one jersey too far showing their dislike for the team’s management and performance?
