The trial for the alleged murder of Colton Boushie, the 22-year-old Cree man who was shot and killed on a farm in rural Saskatchewan started this week. And so did “Boushie,” a podcast being produced by CBC Saskatchewan and the single most important thing I think is happening at CBC right now.

Some thoughts on being blocked on Twitter (spoiler: it’s fine).
I have started publishing my newsletter again. You can sign up here. So it has apparently been over a year since my previous letter went out, which was not a thing I intended to happen. I can tell you that in the intervening time I have still been writing, but looking back on it I’ve […]
