The SKoop: "The Apology Tour"

Welcome back to The SKoop, the podcast that takes you inside the week in Saskatchewan politics, from the headlines to the backrooms. First, they discuss NDP MLA Nathaniel Teed's so-called "privacy breach" by the government, regarding his position on SLGA liquor stores. Then they dig into the backroom process and politics of Scott Moe and Christine Tell's apologies this week in the wake of the Colin Thatcher throne speech saga, particularly: what is it like to advise a political leader that they need to apologize? Then, they analyze the Saskatchewan First Act and its political implications, and then wrap up with the inaugural segment of "What Actually Mattered This Week".
