On today’s Hub Roundtable, Executive Director Rudyard Griffiths, Editor-at-Large Sean Speer, and Managing Editor Harrison Lowman discuss Pierre Poilievre’s decision this week to wade into the trans debate, insisting “biological males” should be banned from women’s sports, change rooms and bathrooms. The opposition leader also announced his support for a Senate private member’s bill compelling porn websites to verify the age of users.

The team also discusses Prime Minister Trudeau’s abysmal poll numbers and whether he will step down as party leader or stick it out.
