Is Canada still a free and democratic society?
This may seem like a silly question. Of course we are, some may say.
But if we pause for a moment and think about the erosions of our basic rights and freedoms during the pandemic, or think about the hateful attitude many hold for the unvaccinated — up to and including our Prime Minister — you may start to think that Canada doesn’t feel Canada anymore.
Today on the Candice Malcolm Show, Candice is joined by Travis Smith. Smith is a professor at Concordia University and a political theorist who earned his PhD at Harvard, where he studied the politics of medicine.
They talk about how too many Canadians are willing to sacrifice their rights in exchange for the promise of good health – and how this is a recipe for disaster for a free and democratic society like Canada.
