Empty Ontario Legislature & US Capitol Riots

As 2021 began, a torrent of news came forward that a number of leaders in our communities, from the federal to the provincial and now we’ve learned the municipal levels weren’t following COVID-19 protocols.  Namely that they left the country for personal recreation.  Joel and Roland talk about this abdication of leadership on the part of those who are trying to lead us through this pandemic.

Then, Joel and Roland look to the atrocious events on Jan 6th at the US Capitol and wonder can that happen here in Canada. (Spoiler: It can and it’s already here).  They talk about the dangers of playing footsie with radicalism for the sake of political points and what politicians and the public need to do here in Canada to prevent what we saw in the states from happening here.
