BONUS EPISODE – The Canadian Federal Hellection

Play

Hello friends and well-wishers, today we have two of the Canadian hosts of our fair pod to help explain the Canadian political system with help from our friends Bean (from The Island Shuffle) and Emma (who joined us for our Ontario Election special last year). We go over the political parties (all six of them!), the parliamentary system and talk about why chasing the centre is a waste of time. We also talk about polls a lot. Hooray, polls!

Of note: Zoey’s audio file had some connection issues, which were most prominent around 16 min and 24 min. There wasn’t much we could do about it so we just edited around it.

Our primary sources of polling data and electoral metrics were 338Canada and CBC’s Poll Tracker.

Music used:
The Taxpayers – Evil Men
Big Sugar – O Canada
