This week: Transportation Troubles. In Saskatchewan, a recent government budget announced the shutdown of the STC, a provincial bus service that critics say is a lifeline for rural communities and reserves. Meanwhile in Manitoba, a First Nations owned airline was stunned to learn that it too could have its wings clipped after news that the province will end its support for a local airport. Returning to the roundtable to discuss the implications of these cuts are academic Pam Palmater and writer Paul Seesequasis.

    So grateful for this discussion. This is the only media outlet to discuss these horrible transportation cuts in the broader context of Canada's relationships with Indigenous people. We are fighting hard to keep STC, and the story has been virtually ignored by national media. So thank you for this, for these wise and important words.
