Ep 02: Conservatives Nix Jewish Heritage Month

On this episode: we talk about the JDL in Montreal, and an expansion of the Canada-Israel Free Trade agreement. We give a nod to the St.Louis JVP in their response to the ADL’s collaboration with city police, and question the royal family’s “heil-gate”. Lastly, we’re joined in studio by Claire Hurtig (Treyf’s director of design) to talk about pinkwashing and a recent quebec delegation of lgbt francophone quebecois(es) to israel.
