NLR Minute 7/19: Elections, Elections, Elections
Play • 25 min

Elections, elections, elections. No one wants or needs early elections but Nova Scotians and Canadians are getting them. The provincial Liberals and federal Liberals are looking for a mandate, and a majority, to govern through the pandemic recovery. We look at both races, the dynamics at play, and the challenges for progress.

Then, for all the talk, and all the column inches wasted on the turmoil within the Green Party of Canada, all seems quiet. The party’s Federal Council has cancelled a review of Annamie Paul’s leadership and her membership review. What does it mean for the party and what does it mean for the future of ecosocialism? Dimitri Lascaris and his newly launched Green Left hope it means change.
