ICYMI: October 8-14
What I produced and consumed this week.
In the Progress Report, I wrote about Alberta’s disproportionate share of Temporary Foreign Worker program violations, with slightly more listings in the federal government’s database of abusive employers than Ontario — a province triple its size.
At Jacobin, I look into the history of Alberta Premier Danielle Smith’s push to pull the province out of the Canada Pension Plan and the likely consequences if it comes to fruition.
On the Forgotten Corner, Scott and I nerded out about baseball and talked about the disappointing Toronto Blue Jays season with Andrew Stoeten of. His newsletter is a must-read for Jays fans.
