Episode details

In this first episode of The Numbers, a collaboration between myself and Philippe J. Fournier, we do a rundown of the latest federal polling and what it means for the three major parties. We also discuss the Conservative convention, the impact of the Greenbelt controversy on the Ontario PCs, the early days of the Manitoba election and the upcoming provincial byelection in Jean-Talon.

We then answer some listener questions and Philippe subjects me to a little quiz.

As always, in addition to listening to the episode in your inbox, at or on podcast apps like Apple Podcasts, you can also watch this episode on YouTube.
