Singh’s strength in the face of adversity impresses, the BQ tweets the quiet part out loud and American Andrew Scheer is....not actually an accountant? On episode 104 of the podcast journalist Martin Forgues, political analyst Ludvic Moquin-Beaudry and sociologist Julia Posca join host Andre Goulet to explore week 4 of our grim and grotesque 2019 Federal Election psychodrama.

Plus: correspondent Anna Bianca Roach speaks with Rank and File's Dave Bush to talk about Ontario’s Fight for $15 and Fairness campaign, what voters who care about labour rights should be looking for when they cast their ballot and how labour issues are, or aren’t, impacting the 43rd general election.
