Don’t worry Greta, the Coronavirus pandemic will get us first – The Pipeline, Episode 12

mm

Published

on

Recorded at 10am on March 11th, 2020: In this episode of The Pipeline, Paul, Derek and Dave discuss the very latest developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, including analysis of media and government responses, and examining the social and economic consequences.

We also discussed the somewhat-related oil price plunge, the production battle between Russia and Saudi Arabia, and the latest from other OPEC countries, including the U.A.E.

While the World Bank ranked Canada as the 22nd most oil-dependent country in the world in a 2012 study, this dependency is significantly amplified zooming in on Alberta’s economy. On the podcast, we discuss Alberta’s recently announced budget, and the significance these latest oil price moves will have on the plan.

Pandemics, Kings and Queens – The Pipeline, Episode 13

mm

Published

on

After a brief hiatus, we are back with the latest episode of The Pipeline, recorded on April 5th, 2020.

In this episode, we discuss the Queen’s address, pandemic pop culture, like Netflix’s pervasive series “The Tiger King”, Trump’s 3M N95 mask directive, and the state of Canadian politics.

Which Canadian politicians are putting the knives away during the crisis, and which ones are not?

Governments around the world are flexing their muscles, and infringing upon ordinary freedoms we normally take for granted. All this is in the name of public health, but will it persist long long after the pandemic is behind us? In particular, we discuss Trudeau’s failed attempt to get executive taxing and spending powers from Parliament until the end of 2021.
