This week’s Hub Roundtable discusses the growing tendency on the part of governments to pursue their priorities in the form of policy mandates on private businesses including the Online News Act and the new electric vehicle sales mandate. We also have prominent Canadian historian Jack Granatstein join to talk about his famous book, Who Killed Canadian History?, twenty-five years after it was first published. 

The Roundtable features Hub executive director Rudyard Griffiths and Hub editor-at-large, Sean Speer. The Roundtable is produced and edited by The Hub’s content editor, Amal Attar-Guzman.
