Rage Against the Machine - Are Ontarians directing their anger where it is most deserved?

February 4, 2021

Zooming out from Tuesday's interview with Chair Jeff Knoll of the Halton Police Services Board, Joel and Roland reflect on the growing importance of podcasts in providing a place for long-form interviews with public figures.

They also discuss the wider implications of the spate of resignations following on from Rod Phillips' resignation. Public frustration, anger and a desire for punishment for those found contravening the expectations placed on us all is understandable, but does it risk acting as a distraction from far more crucial issues to the life and death of Ontarians during COVID?

Correction and Clarifications:

Careful listeners will notice that Roland mispronounces Chair Jeff Knoll's surname several times. This is the kind of brain cramp Roland specializes in, and he apologizes to Chair Knoll. For those running a sweepstake on how many weeks it would be before Roland had to apologize to somebody for saying something dumb, the answer is 26. Congratulations to all the winners.
