In our fifty-fifth episode, we discuss Laurie Blakeman’s interesting move to be the nominee for the Liberal, Green, and Alberta parties in Edmonton Centre, the CRTC’s decision to unbundle TV channels, and an interesting article about the decline of Vancouver.
Is Blakeman’s move a one-off or the start of something more in Alberta? Will it be worth it to pick individual TV channels? Will it matter with the way everything is transitioning to online? Why is it so expensive to live in Vancouver? What can we learn about their situation here in Edmonton? We discuss those questions and more.
