NTL 031 – Stripping the name of Sir John A MacDonald from schools and what we learned from the big fight.

Dave hit the road for some family holiday. He checks in with a dispatch from BC. We tapped Keith Andrews (previous guest) from the Art and Possibility podcast. Keith is a big MMA fan and we’ve been looking forward to having him on for reaction to the big fight.

Roger clears his throat with the John A MacDonald school name fiasco and wonders how far we should be willing to extend the argument. Should Louis Riel (murderer) have his name removed from schools?

There’s also some discussion – NO SPOILERS – about the Game of Thrones finale.
