About this Episode

GUEST HOST: David Menzies

Hey, folks, we finally had our day in court in that charming city of Peterborough, Ontario, otherwise known as the municipality where freedom goes to die under the ever-watchful gaze of a potty-mouthed mayor…

I’ll cut to the chase: I was found guilty yesterday of the heinous crime of not social distancing and/or masking when we covered a protest at Peterborough’s Confederation Park back on April 24, 2021.

Bottom line: perhaps you can score the Monday trial as a legal loss for us. Hey, you win some, you lose some. But I truly think that in the department of unintended consequences, this trial made for a journalistic win. Thanks to their prosecution of us and others, we have clearly exposed that the people running the City of Peterborough and the Police Service and even the courts embrace a hypocritical double standard.

GUEST: Avi Yemini joins David to talk about how he was denied entry to New Zealand to report on an anti-government protest in Wellington.
