Editorial board podcast: Facing citizenship ceremonies
Welcome to the Toronto Star editorial board’s weekly podcast, focusing on top issues of the day. The board is responsible for the editorials that appear every day in the Star, and every day we have a lively discussion on what to write about, and what to say. The podcast will give us a chance to share some of those debates with Star readers.
Today we’re talking about two issues: Ottawa’s decision to ban the wearing of niqabs, or veils, at citizenship ceremonies; and the increasingly hot debate over budget cuts at Toronto city hall. Editorial page editor Andrew Phillips is joined by editorial board members Gordon Barthos, Leslie Papp and Carol Goar, as well as columnist Haroon Siddiqui.
