Part 1: Canada’s Inter­na­tion­al Cash Cows

Last year there were 540,000 inter­na­tion­al stu­dents in Cana­da accord­ing to Immi­gra­tions Refugees and Cit­i­zen­ship Cana­da, IRCC. Many of these stu­dents came to Cana­da with one goal — per­ma­nent residency.

Our pro­duc­er, Damilo­la Onime, her­self a for­mer inter­na­tion­al stu­dent, shares the sto­ry of how the inter­na­tion­al edu­ca­tion indus­try is run in Cana­da. The sto­ry of how these stu­dents, because of their ambi­tion for green­er pas­tures are exploit­ed by the gov­ern­ment, the schools they attend, recruit­ment agents and every oth­er par­ty involved in their tem­po­rary res­i­dent to per­ma­nent res­i­dent journey.

Part 2: Chopped and O’Tooled

Twit­ter became the cen­tre of the elec­tion this week when they put a manip­u­lat­ed media” tag on one of Chrys­tia Free­land’s tweets, which con­tained an edit­ed video of Con­ser­v­a­tive leader Erin O’Toole.

And is sci­ence jour­nal­ism at a cri­sis point in Cana­da? An analy­sis finds Canada’s biggest news­pa­pers gave about half as much cov­er­age to the IPC­C’s major recent cli­mate report as US ones did.
