Recent stories in the media have focused attention on troubling events such as ISIS attacks, Charlie Hebdo in Paris, and the attack on Parliament in Ottawa. We wanted to apply a policy lens to such controversial events, and asked our guests to offer analysis on Bill C-51. Are there aspects that require further review and amendment? How can the government achieve a proper balance between privacy and national security? Are there gaps in existing policy that necessitate Bill C-51? What the impact of Bill C-51 would have on people in the day-to-day? We discuss these questions and more with our expert guests.
Beyond the Headlines (BTH) is a one-hour current affairs talk radio show aimed at providing a greater understanding and thoughtful discussion of the various policy issues in our daily news headlines. BTH aims to take listeners beyond the immediacy of our daily news.
Our show airs Mondays from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00p.m. on CIUT 89.5 FM in Toronto.
Beyond the Headlines (BTH) is produced by a team of volunteers. We are young policy professionals, and we aim to make in-depth analysis of current policy issues more accessible to you.
BTH operates, records, and broadcasts out of CIUT 89.5 FM at the University of Toronto. CIUT 89.5 FM is Toronto’s preeminent, listener-supported, presenter of leading-edge music and spoken-word programming since 1966. CIUT reaches listeners from Barrie to Buffalo, Kitchener to Cobourg, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
BTH would not be possible without the support of CIUT and listeners like you. Please consider supporting our partners at CIUT 89.5 FM. This way we can keep taking public policy issues out of the hallways and on to the airwaves.
BTH is also generously supported by the School of Public Policy and Governance (SPPG) at the University of Toronto. SPPG aims to form a hub for policy discourse, bringing researchers, practitioners, and community members together in order to contribute to policy debates, development, and discussion across many areas of expertise, both nationally and internationally.
