The Future of Canada
A very Special episode this week. The awesome Emilie Taman is running for the NDP in the soon-to-be announced federal by-election in Ottawa-Vanier. Emilie will be a fantastic member of parliament. Lets start with the obvious: she is super smart, hard working, principled, and deeply committed to justice and fairness. But I think most importantly she is a consensus builder who makes instant connections with everyone she meets - she always makes the right decision for the right reason. In a climate of political cynicism and broken promises Emilie is exactly with our parliament needs. Last week Emilie and Louise Arbour (yes - former Supreme Court judge, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and friend of the podcast) sat down with a roomful of students from Ottawa University to talk about some really important issues: electoral reform, the vibrancy of our democracy, feminism, the environment, immigration, and the refugee crisis. It was fantastic. And I was there to recorded it.
