Tannara goes to a liberal rally for democracy, James rambles about the “hat” “incident,” Marge gives us an update about abortion signs, we muse about what it means that Maxime Bernier is going full Pepe, and we chat about a very creepy prof who uses phrases that should be banned from existence.

Much better news is prison strikes, which we also touch on briefly.
