20:20 Raul Burbano Common Frontiers talking VENEZUELA Constituents Assembly and how to read the biased journalism of the CBC and corporate media in Canada.

“When Canadian Foreign Affairs minister Chrystia Freeland recently said that “Canada stands with the people of Venezuela following popular consultation”, she was not expressing solidarity with the Venezuelan masses, but with the Venezuelan elites trying to stymie the Constituent Assembly which they fear will further erode their political and economic power and privilege. Rather than supporting a real mass democratic process, the Canadian State backs the so-called popular consultation – a pseudo-democratic plebiscite, with no voters list, no restrictions on people voting multiple times, and no meaningful answer to the challenges facing Venezuela.” (ILPS Canada)

Background on Venezuela democratic struggles.

35:30 Teaser: WELL RED – Episode 6: Canada 150 + Ryan McMahon = Podcasting 101 for Charlie and Derrick

Have you heard the new Well Reds podcast? Brilliant impersonation of Chantal Hebert by Charles Demers. Plus it’s the official “Canada 150” counter-programming,  joined by the granddaddy of anti-colonial podcasting, Ryan McMahon, for a wide-ranging discussion set off by two magnificent books, Thomas King’s ‘The Inconvenient Indian’ & Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas’s gorgeous ‘Red: a Haida Manga.’ We also talk about Ryan’s upcoming book with Charlie’s humour imprint. Must listen stuff! (Photo is of Ryan & Derrick unimpressed that Charlie is late for a podcast recording at his own home)
