The extraordinary work of four Canadians appointed to the Order of Canada; political scientist Yascha Mounk on the challenges facing democracy today — and how to save it; and a trip to the cottage with Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe
On Canada Day, we speak with four Canadians who’ve been appointed to the Order of Canada for their extraordinary service to this nation. Guest host Nahlah Ayed talks to nurse Lorraine M. Wright, researcher Parminder Raina, Elder Reg Crowshoe and Elder Rosemary Crowshoe.
Then, we talk to political scientist Yascha Mounk about the challenges facing democracy today, and his new book The Great Experiment: Why Diverse Democracies Fall Apart and How They Can Endure.
And we dip into the archives of Stuart McLean's Vinyl Cafe to bring you a tale about Dave and Morley's trip to the cottage.
