Show Notes

We’re talking about an issue that need more attention: accountability for grassroots people in First Nations communities.

It’s a huge, complicated issue, and something that should be talked about during this election, so we reached out to Rob Louie and Charmaine Stick, two champions for First Nations transparency and accountability.

They spoke with our B.C Director Kris Sims and Prairie Director Todd MacKay about how things can improve.

#61 INTERVIEW – Danielle Smith, on the Future of the Press

We've got a new interview for you. Danielle Smith is a former Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, and served as leader of the Wildrose Party from 2009 to 2014, and the host of an Alberta-wide talk radio show on 770 CHQR Calgary. In January, she walked away from that radio show, and she has a message for the media about accountability. Since accountability is a huge part of what we do at the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, our Prairie Director Todd MacKay called Smith for an interview. Like this show? Subscribe and give us 5-stars!
