Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, Ep. 4: Humour in Ads, Cuts to AAFC & Tooting Our Own Horn

In this riveting edition of Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, Shaun Haney and Lyndsey Smith tackle hard-hitting news items, like the new CWB ad and whether or not it’s funny and how PETA is apparently spying on ranchers, the only way they know how — with humour and sarcasm.

You’ll find all that and more in the video below!
