Ep. #70: Will the Rouleau inquiry change any minds?
Supriya Dwivedi and Aaron Wherry chat about the Emergencies Act inquiry. Plus, Elizabeth May is back at the helm of the Greens.
It’s a big week at the Rouleau inquiry looking into the use of the Emergencies Act earlier this year, with cabinet ministers and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau testifying.
But has the inquiry changed any minds — and will Justice Paul Rouleau’s findings have any political consequences on the Liberals or the opposition parties?
Speaking of which, one of those parties has chosen a new leader — sort of. After a brief and tumultuous interregnum, Elizabeth May is back at the helm of the Green Party (with a little help from Jonathan Pedneault).
Joining me today to discuss this is the CBC’s Aaron Wherry and Supriya Dwivedi, Director of Policy and Engagement at the Centre for Media, Technology and Democracy, Senior Counsel for Enterprise Canada and co-host of the Seriously Podcast.
