We sent the Syrup Trap’s Winnie Code out to the Conservative Convention in Vancouver. She explains how the convention was reminiscent of an informercial and goes right to the top of the party for the official line on whether Justin Trudeau is handsome.

Plus, a discussion about whether the Conservative Party can build credibility when it comes to environmental policy. Featuring Mark Cameron of Canadians for Clean Prosperity and Jason Thistlethwaite, assistant professor at University of Waterloo’s faculty of the environment.

CORRECTION: The original podcast contained mistakes related to Brian Mulroney’s climate initiatives. Jason Thistlethwaite said the Montreal Protocol was launched to curb CFCs that cause acid rain. A listener pointed out that CFCs do not cause acid rain and the Montreal Protocol was meant to deal with CFCs, not acid rain. Jason also said Stephane Dion ran for the Liberals in 2006, when it was in fact 2008. He acknowledged the mistakes and both of these sections have been removed. We regret the errors.
