She has an opinion on the most important stories of the day and NOT just politics. She’s fair with people, but it won’t take long for you to find out where she stands. On family. On money. On safety. On culture.

9:00 AM TOPIC: Kitchener Sex Trafficking

Meaghan Martin, Sleep Tight founder

Another case of sex trafficking in our region. Three men and a woman played roles in getting a 14-year-old girl to sell sexual services from a hotel and a motel in Kitchener last spring.  The court was told the victim was a ward of Family and Children’s Services.  She worked two days in a room at the Howard Johnson on Weber Street East, followed by four or five days at Canada’s Best Value Inn on Victoria Street North.  The four adults are from the region and know each other.

9:15 AM TOPIC: Trump snubbing Merkle happens to all women

A picture of Trump and Angela Merkle went viral after the German Chancellor was visiting the White House and President Trump did not shake her hand and barely even looked at her.

We hear quite a lot about explicit sexism but less overt indignities can be just as infuriating.  That is according to columnist Jessica Valenti.  She says that is because it is hard to explain to those who haven’t experienced them.
