The polls haven’t been in agreement lately, so where do things really stand?

What role does health care play in public opinion and politics — both at the federal and provincial levels?

How are things looking ahead of Alberta’s provincial election, and what about those reports about Chinese interference in the 2021 federal vote?

Joining me to tackle all of these questions are three party pollsters, Dan Arnold, Andrew Enns and James Valcke.

Dan, chief strategy officer at Pollara, was director of research and advertising in the prime minister's office and the Liberals’ pollster during the last three federal election campaigns.

Andrew is executive vice-president at Léger. He conducted polling for the Conservatives in Stephen Harper’s last three campaigns and has polled for provincial conservative parties across Canada.

James is director of research and strategy at Viewpoints Research, which has polled for the NDP in elections across the country. He has worked on various central campaigns, including the NDP's breakthrough 2011 election.
