Recorded at 10am on March 11th, 2020: In this episode of The Pipeline, Paul, Derek and Dave discuss the very latest developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, including analysis of media and government responses, and examining the social and economic consequences.

We also discussed the somewhat-related oil price plunge, the production battle between Russia and Saudi Arabia, and the latest from other OPEC countries, including the U.A.E.

While the World Bank ranked Canada as the 22nd most oil-dependent country in the world in a 2012 study, this dependency is significantly amplified zooming in on Alberta’s economy. On the podcast, we discuss Alberta’s recently announced budget, and the significance these latest oil price moves will have on the plan.

The Pipeline is The Western Standard’s weekly national affairs program. Each week, The Western Standard Publisher Derek Fildebrandt and Digital Editor Paul Holmes break down the issues from the week, discuss them in-depth and examine some of the broader implications, focusing particularly on how they affect Western Canada. We were also joined this week by Dave Naylor, News Editor.

Recall and referendum legislation has been tabled in the legislature. Are the bars for citizens reasonably set? Will this shore up the grassroots support in the party? Political maneuvering has pushed the next opportunity for a UCP leadership review until a date six months before the next general election. Kenney has bought himself time and dodged a potential bullet but will it be worth alienating members?

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
