Elections Canada made a couple of flabbergasting announcements yesterday — poll workers won’t be required to be vaccinated and mail in ballots won’t begin to be counted until the day after the election. With public health at risk and the integrity of our election at stake, are we setting ourselves up for US election style shenanigans?

Parties and the press love to blabber about platforms but should they? The Liberals, Bloc, and Greens have yet to release them — and why should they? Do platforms matter in the age of our interconnected politics?

In the Candidate Corner, we’re joined by NDP hopeful for Etobicoke-Lakeshore Sasha Kane. Sasha tells us a bit about her motivation to run and what’s at stake for the riding.
