Hosted by Éric Grenier, The Writ podcast explores the world of elections and politics in Canada.
Episode details

The protesters who have blockaded borders and occupied Ottawa over the last few weeks have had real impacts on the lives of those who depend on cross-border trade and those who live in the nation’s capital.

They have also had an impact on politics in this country, changing Canadians’ views of both the prime minister over his handling of the crisis and the Conservative Party over the positions they have taken on pandemic restrictions and the protests themselves.

Even if the protests die down or are put down, they will leave traces in politics for months, perhaps even years, to come.

So, to help me make some sense out of how this is impacting partisan politics in Canada, I’m joined by David Coletto, CEO of Abacus Data, on this week’s episode of The Writ Podcast.
