Federal Election Political Chat - with Sonia Théroux and Kalen Harris

June 18, 2015

In the lead up to the Federal election, we are assembling a political panel to look at the bigger picture, and issues that affect us locally.

We were joined on June 11th by Sonia Théroux, Campaign Manager for Victoria Green Party candidate Jo-Ann Roberts, and Kalen Harris, community advocate and owner of Shatterbox Coffee.

Except for being sidetracked by a fierce debate between Sonia and Paul about a National Daycare Program, most of this episode focuses on the flaws of our current electoral system, not just the systemic institutional ones...the problems with outcomes based on who votes (and who doesn't) Members of Parliament vote in Parliament, talking points, the media, and so much more.

It was a raucous, but oh so fun!
