The Pretendian Crisis

The Pretendian Crisis

The pretendian phenomenon has been known and discussed in indigenous circles for years, but it's become mainstream Canadian news lately thanks to three big name exposés: Buffy sainte Marie, Joseph Boyden, and Michelle Latimer. These people were arguably the most famous indigenous songwriter in Canada, the most famous indigenous novelist in Canada and the most famous indigenous filmmaker in Canada. And all three were revealed to not actually be indigenous or at a minimum, all three misrepresented their ancestries and their community connections.


But they are just the tip of the iceberg. The real issue w...

(Détours) L’immigrant imaginaire

(Détours) L’immigrant imaginaire

Si l’on en croit les médias et les discours des politiques, les immigrants seraient responsables de toutes les difficultés culturelles et économiques que connaissent le Canada et le Québec à l’heure actuelle. Pour décrypter ces discours nauséabonds, Emilie reçoit Mireille Paquet, professeure au département de politique de l’Université Concordia et spécialiste des politiques migratoires. Dans la deuxième partie de l’émission, elles reviennent sur les campements pro palestiniens installés sur les campus canadiens, témoins de tensions entre la haute administration universitaire et la communauté étudiante et professorale.

Voice Of The Common Man

Voice Of The Common Man

Open Line on VOCM-AM in Newfoundland has been called an institution. A religion. A must-listen show. 


And we at Canadaland had never heard of it - until recently. But it attracts an audience bigger than any show in its time slot, and has consistently for years. 


So in the age of podcasts and social media, in a time of layoffs and media cuts, how has this AM radio talk show managed to thrive?

In the Shadow of the Shadow War

In the Shadow of the Shadow War

Canadian media coverage of the war in the Middle East has, unsurprisingly, focused on the impact on diaspora communities here in Canada. We have heard about Jewish Canadians, Palestinian Canadians, and we have heard in general terms about the many Muslim communities across Canada and how this is affecting them. But there's one diaspora community that is increasingly at the center of this conflict, who we have heard very little about. And that is the Iranian community.


Today on the show, three members of the Iranian-Canadian community, Amir Attaran, Samira Mohyeddin, and Kahve Shahrooz, join Jesse...

Even if 2024 is projected to be the warmest year ever recorded, audiences are tuning out the news, exhausted by eco-anxiety and media fatigue. Emilie N...

Thunder Bay Police Chaos

Thunder Bay Police Chaos

On April 12, 2024, news broke that Sylvie Hauth, the former police chief of Thunder Bay, was arrested and charged with a series of criminal offenses. 


But none of the news reports explained much about just what the hell was happening this time.


Most of this story is still unknown, but this week, Karyn Pugliese, Ryan McMahon, and Jon Thompson will tell you what they can, what they have verified so far, and they will give you their best sense — let's call it a theory — of what the big-picture story is here.
