Brian Pallister's Progressive Conservative government has rammed through a barrage of major right-wing changes in Manitoba over the last three years including service closures, funding cuts, privatizations and union-busting. On this week's episode journalist James Wilt joins host Andre Goulet to explore the casual cruelty of a series of major PC policies initiatives that have fallen under the radar.

Plus: the origins of the collapse in support for the Manitoba NDP and what it tells us about the decline of the federal party as we stare into the abyss of 10/21 election.
