UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 43

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

Jody and George are back in studio and get deep into City of Vancouver issues related to golf courses, Oppenheimer Park and the DTES (Oh — and the lack of true action from the mayor’s office along with failed promises by the mayor himself); then, what’s the deal with the likelihood that the end of daylight saving will happen before we ever get ride hailing in this province; and finally, why so angry Elizabeth May and where are the knives being held for Andrew Scheer’s unwilling end as leader of the CPC?
