AmeriNZ 132 – Canadian coup d’état

Today I’m joined by my e-friend, Mark from Slap Upside the Head, to talk about the current constitutional crisis in Canada. Some people have called it a coup d’état, but who’s fomenting the coup kind of depends on which side you’re on. Mark provides a lot of background to the current events, and I compare and contrast some things with both New Zealand and the US. It’s a wide-ranging discussion, and I know I learned some things about Canadian politics. We’re going to try and meet up again in the New Year to talk about how the situation is resolved—assuming it is!
