"Donald Trump is the biggest threat to democracy...and the greatest threat to the Canada/US relationship." That, from former US Ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, who headlines this episode of Real Talk.
2:13 | Donald Trump kicked off a rally in Waco, TX with a song by a January 6th prison choir. He's calling the 2024 election "the final battle". What the hell is going on? Former US Ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman tells us about his personal experience with Trump, and why he says the former POTUS remains such a threat. You won't want to miss former Ambassador Heyman's insights on President Biden's visit to Canada (and whether or not he'll seek re-election), China brokering a peace deal between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and the future of Canada/US trade.

37:40 | Why isn't this oil boom bringing jobs with it? Does a $15/hr. minimum wage have anything to do with it? Labour economist Dr. Joseph Marchand dumbs down his fascinating research so the rest of us can understand it. Why is Big Oil hesitant to spend money right now? Would Danielle Smith or Rachel Notley dare campaign on lowering or raising the minimum wage? What's Alberta's next big industry? (And how on earth does Dr. Marchand navigate life without a smart phone?!) Watch to find out!
