Featured on today’s program:

Today on the program, housing advocates have been speaking out for years about long wait times for tenants at Quebec’s Rental Board. Yesterday, an independent report detailing the extent of these waits was made public. CKUT’s David Zinnman will bring us more.

Then, during a question period at the Canadian House of Commons last Tuesday, June 2, Prime Minister Harper once again disregarded the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report’s call for a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women. CKUT’s Emma Noradounkian sat down with Viviane Michel, the president of the Quebec Native Women’s Association, who expressed her continued disappointment in the Harper government and ways in which others can get involved in pressuring it to adopt this much-needed national inquiry.

Finally, we bring you a special dicussion on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, produced by the CanadaLand podcast. We’ll hear from Indigenous comedian and podcaster Ryan McMahon, as well as activist Chelsea Vowel.
