HALIFAX, NS -- 95.7 News host Sheldon MacLeod interviews author, speaker and veteran community builder Diane Kalen-Sukra on the rise of toxic culture in Canadian communities and its impact on our local governments, democracy, and the sustainability of our communities. They discuss new polls that show incivility is on the rise in Canada, that there are high levels of distrust in our institutions, and that our democracy is weakening.
