Thursday Roundup – Who‘s afraid of the 905er? Why won‘t CPC candidates speak about their platform?

Every CPC candidate in Canada is gagged—forbidden from talking to podcasts—or so we were told by a party operative. As some of the worst aspects of modern political campaigns dominated headlines and anti-vax PPC supporters threw stones, we searched in vain for a CPC candidate willing to take a free 30 minutes to talk about their platform in depth.

Emily Brown CPC

Election volunteer

Fed up with politics? Volunteer.

There is no party like a victory party that actually happens after a victory. Especially if the previous one was in the 1940s.

But hardly any Canadians take an active role in local party politics beyond voting. Doing so leaves parties exposed to special interest groups, wealthy donors and the small number of unrepresentative people who come forward to pick leaders and choose party direction. Is it any wonder we don’t feel they reflect our priorities?
