Erin O’Toole and Conservative Politics in Canada

August 31, 2020

In this episode, Kiegan Irish and Alex Boos are joined by Mike Fong to discuss Erin O'Toole's recent conservative party leadership election, the legacy of Canadian conservative politics and Canadian political economy. What shape is Canada's right-wing discourse taking? How do today's conservative party politics tie in with right-wing radicalization practices and what are some of the stakes at play for the political left and Indigenous politics? What strategies could the liberals implement to impede a conservative government if a vote of non confidence is held in the upcoming Fall? Join us in this episode as we consider all these questions and more!

A big thank you goes out to Jacob Irish for postproduction! And thank you to our listeners for sticking with us.
