Political Capital 29 - Old growth logging, school masks and BC Liberal leadership debate

Today's show was filmed while surfing in Tofino.

BC Supreme Court has tossed Premier John Horgan the hot potato of continued old growth logging protests at Fairy Creek, what does this mean for his government? Plus a revolt my parents has led to changes to BC’s mask policy for school-aged children, and we look at who won and lost the first BC Liberal leadership debate.

Host Rob Shaw is joined by Jillian Oliver and Maclean Kay.


  • Last week's Political Capital didn't even HAVE a format sheet. (I assure you, this is unusual. No, really!) All the attention went into the then-wrapped up federal election.
  • This week's #BCPOLI Hotstove also had a singular focus, namely the previous night's BC Liberal leadership debate.
  • Does this sound familiar? In August, Rob Shaw summed up a changed mask mandate as "Apparently, everything changed. But also didn’t change, according to Dr. Henry, because it was always going to be this way. Maybe. Sort of.”
