Sequestered in the nation's capital, political commentator and academic David Moscrop (The Washington Post, Maclean's) joins host Andre Goulet to discuss the nationalization of the economy and the paradigm shifting CERB, the strength of Canadian political institutions in the face of an unprecedented crisis and what the Trudeau government can learn from the radical transparency and virus realpolitik of the South Korean government.

Plus: the Department of Global Affairs says that Saudi Arabia’s human rights record of unlawful killings, forced disappearances and torture is “problematic". So why has the ban on arms sales to Mohammed bin Salman’s thug regime been lifted? We explore why canceling the Saudi arms deal is Canada’s only ethical way forward.

This episode was recorded on April 12th, 2020.
