Radio Regent News & Views - Blog March 29
This week on Radio Regent News & Views, we will be exploring the following stories:
1. Continuing our ongoing coverage of Doug Ford’s changes to everyday life in Ontario, we’ll be taking a look at the scrapped Basic Income Pilot program and what it means for our province’s poor. We’ve prepared a mini-documentary, with excerpts from lectures and talks by Tim Mulvale, a professor at the University of Manitoba and Hugh Segal, a long-time Canadian conservative political operative.
2. Further to Doug Ford’s continued austerity measures, Adonis Huggins will present an interview with a Regent Park resident and activist discussing the 15 and Fairness campaign, dedicated to raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour.
3. David Wall and Theo Nazary will put their heads together to discuss the news of the week, including the apparent exoneration of Donald Trump, the ever-unfolding SNC Lavalin scandal and recent developments in the world of social media companies.
Radio Regent News & Views runs Fridays at 2:00pm and is repeated throughout the week on radioregent.com
