On today’s show we are happy to announce that Canada’s most progressive politician Niki Ashton is our guest! We discuss the newly formed Progressive International: A cross-border effort to unify left wing political parties and movements from across the globe to help counter-act the rise of the right wing. We talk with Niki about what this movement is all about, what Canada can contribute to the global progressive movement and the importance that international solidarity plays in both political and labour movements across the globe.
Also, we have a brand new theme song now! Let us know what you think!
