What Makes Us Actually Care About Something?
Do we do enough to hold corporations, organizations, and politicians accountable when they behave badly? From toxic leaks to greasy politics, today's episode investigates some of the top stories in the country, and what Canadians are doing about them.
4:09 | Chief Allan Adam didn't mince words on the March 6 episode of Real Talk. Straight up, he called Imperial Oil's nine-month toxic tailings pond leak "a cover-up". Chief Adam's comments have aged well, as Ottawa's stepping in to demand action while the Alberta Energy Regulator sits on its hands. We continue our coverage of this explosive story.
18:33 | Pierre Poilievre knows China didn't throw the 2021 federal election...but that won't stop him from suggesting that's the case. Is this a Trump 2.0 "stolen election" play? Ryan looks back at a week-old op/ed from the Conservative Party's 2021 national campaign manager and stacks it up against the Opposition leader's statement yesterday. (They don't square up.)
26:40 | "Conflicts of interest run deep in Saskatchewan politics. This is why I'm grateful for Real Talk." Ryan reads an email from Real Talker Steve relating to our coverage of the Legacy Christian Academy scandal in Saskatoon.

37:55 | Is ESG actually worth it? Does it makes financial sense for corporations and organizations to actually invest in the Environmental, Social, & Governance movement? Onyen CEO Laurie Clark, twice named one of Canada's 100 Most Powerful Women, gets into recent polling around how the average Canadian actually feels. Fascinating stuff.
