The Academic and the Activist Season 2 Episode 5 - 3rd Federal Election Episode

In this episode in the final lead up to the 2019 Canadian federal election, Amanda and Jenny talk about polls, coalition governments, and the diversity of candidates in races across the country. They interview two women running for seats in Newfoundland and Labrador, including Michelene Gray (NDP) and Sharon Vokey (Conservative), and they talk about a recent op-ed written by Yasmin Jiwani, Francesca Scala, and Stephanie Paterson, three academics at Concordia University, in which they highlight the importance of thinking about “care” when we assess policy platforms put forward by parties.
