The Sheldon MacLeod Show
The Sheldon MacLeod Show - 1 p.m. The Sheldon MacLeod Show - Friday, June 21, 2019 For the 1pm hour, we speak with Professor Howard Ramos in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Dalhousie University. Halifax Index 2019 reports a third straight year of strong population growth driven by immigration and youth retention. What is social momentum? Then, we talk more about the death of Bill C-417 with Juror Advocate for mental health supports, Mark Farrent. Now that the bill has died, what happens next? After that, we speak with Ally Garber. Summer programming for students with Autism has been limited in HRM. Is this discriminatory? How can the city fix this? We wrap the hour with Toby Sanger from Canadians for Tax Fairness. The parliamentary budget officer says Tax avoidance is costing Canada up to $25B a year. What does that mean, and can anything be done to get that money? Jun 21, 2019, 03:20 PM
