UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck -- Episode 107

Welcome to UnSpun - The Orca's current events podcast and YouTube show. Every week, Jody Vance and George Affleck unspin the latest news in local, provincial, federal politics, and much more.

Jody and George ask whether or not speed and supply of the COVID-19 vaccines are mutually exclusive; why long term care facilities seem to be getting the short end of the stick every time in BC; how marketing 101 is part of Dr. Bonnie’s strategy; whether the City of Vancouver’s new parking fee is really just a tax grab; and, what is up with the NPA political party in Vancouver.
