Executive Director Rudyard Griffiths and Editor-at-Large Sean Speer discuss Bell Canada’s recent layoffs, the bizarre reaction from commentators and politicians, and what it signals about Canada’s policy-making mindset when it comes to big business. They also welcome The Hub‘s Managing Editor Harrison Lowman to discuss his recent article about the state of Canada’s journalism schools and the strong reaction to it.
