The Leader of His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition is an underrated role in our parliamentary system. Whoever is in it normally tries to use it as an audition for the top job — but their function is a vital one in our democracy that is often overlooked.

Until today.

With the political season still a little quiet, the CBC’s Aaron Wherry has joined me to play a little game: Opposition Leader Draft!

We’ll dig through the history books to draft our fantasy opposition front bench — and chat a little about the importance of the opposition leader’s job.
