Lauren Brown joins us from LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests) to talk about the organization and a new program they are offering to increase the amount of women in the forestry sector. Currently females makes up only 10% of the sector, and they’d like to change that!

To find out more about the Young Urban Forest Leaders Program with LEAF, click HERE. Applications for the program will be accepted until Sunday, March 20, 2016 by 5pm.

Our main guest this week is Gus Van Harten, associate professor at Osgoode Hall Law School and author of Investment Treaty Arbitration and Public Law. Gus walks us through just some of the may reasons that the TPP ‘trade’ deal that Canada just signed and it looking to ratify is a terrible deal for Canadians, and furthermore democracy in general everywhere.

Learn more about Gus here, and you can read a recent article by him on the TPP here.

The final section of the show, and the entire bonus show is dedicated to our crack team of hosts talking from our perspectives (with examples) of why you should be loudly opposed to the TPP. Let your local MP or MPP know right now, TPP is not good for Canada.
