The Line Podcast, live from Calgary: The Liberals eat the rich

Budget! Pensions! Israel! The GG! And 150 of our best friends in YYC!

In this first-ever live recording of The Line Podcast, Matt Gurney and Jen Gerson took over Calgary’s The Plaza Theatre on April 19, 2024 to talk about the Liberals' penultimate budget, a document filled with class angst, intergenerational resentment, and bad ideas for pension plans. Then they talk about when a doctor's note is not adequate to prevent a public shaming for allegedly scoring $20 million in government money as the ArriveCan discoveries drag on. They add a brief note on why it's not appropriate for the governor-general to host a tea party on online harms, and lastly, end with everyone’s favourite topic: an update on Israel and, now, Iran.
