Wednesday. The public inquiry into Ottawa's maligned LRT system is starting to paint a picture of how the $2.1 billion project went so badly off the rails.

12:16 - "The original estimates of what it was going to cost were cut back by hundreds of millions of dollars."

Rob is joined by David Jeanes from the group Transport Action Canada to get a first hand account of the first two days of public hearings in the public inquiry into the Confederation Line.

23:38 - "The problem is when it gets side tracked in trying to attract some of the fringe elements to win the leadership...he even loses people like me when he talks like that."

This is the place to score your Political Fix! Rob is joined by strategists Karl Belanger and Garry Kellar to talk about Justin Trudeau's future as the Liberal Party leader, rumours of another snap election, cost-of-living politics and Pierre Poilievre.

12:58 - "It doesn't cover the low income to moderate income tennants enough, it's geared towards the upper class...the owning aspect rather than the renting aspect.

19:53 - "The odd thing about this is really what they're asking the CRTC to do is what every body is already concerned about...Google and the other platforms that push content towards you that's in their interest."

37:19 - "In Toronto you need two to three hours for sure, or make sure there's another flight after that you can get back."
