Journalist Martin Forgues, political analyst Ludvic Moquin-Beaudry, politics scholar Maika Sondarjee and host Andre Goulet discuss the slow-motion implosion of the Liberal campaign, how Canadian media is dramatically unequipped to handle the discourse Trudeau's 'blackface' history demands and why this country's unwillingness to grapple with systemic racism has become the underlying theme of the 2019 Federal Election.

Plus: correspondent Anna Roach speaks with labour organizer Thomas McKechnie on the movement to unionize Foodora in Toronto.
