INSIDE THE VILLAGE: Should Canada scrap the monarchy? Long live the arguing!

Episode 18 of the podcast: Journalist Patricia Treble, a leading royal watcher, weighs in on the Queen’s funeral, Harry and Meghan, the future of the Crown in Canada—and the Prime Minister's singing voice

Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local—and no topic is off-limits.

On this week’s episode, we catch up with journalist Patricia Treble, one of Canada’s leading watchers of the Royal Family. She’s had a busy two weeks, to say the least.

A longtime reporter at Maclean's, Treble co-authored the magazine's main obituary on Queen Elizabeth II. An expert contributor to the The Globe and Mail, she also enlightened Global News viewers in the days leading up to the Queen's historic funeral.

Appearing for the first time on Inside the Village, Treble covers it all: Operation London Bridge, William vs. Harry—and why Charles is NOT the King of England. Justin Trudeau singing in a hotel lobby? We hit that note, too. 

All in all, this week's episode is quite the crowning achievement.

Launched in April, Inside the Village is a news and current affairs podcast that provides a weekly window into some of the best local journalism from across Village Media's chain of Ontario newsrooms. The program also explores bigger-picture issues that impact people across the province.

Every episode is available on this news site /insidethevillage. If you prefer the audio version, it is available wherever you find your favourite podcasts.
