    Calgarians and Albertans go to the polls on Monday with a slew of plebiscites, referenda on the ballot — they’ll select a new mayor too. We look at the ballot and all of the questions voters will face. Then, Nova Scotia PCs put forward legislation to set fixed election dates which would bring them in line with the rest of Canada. Pack your bags! The US border is opening to Canadians, but should we be worried?

    Each week, we’ll bring you a panel discussion with Canada’s leading journalists, columnists, politicos, and change makers discussing what’s happening in the newsphere.
    This week we’re joined by columnist and commentator Tom Parkin and activist and National Post columnist Adam Zivo to explore the blocking of young leftists from nomination by the ONDP — what’s at stake and how do we fix it? Former candidate for NDP president Jessa McLean has taken the federal party to task. What will come of the issues she and others have raised? The stories have just decided to stick with O’Toole as leader, should the other parties open leadership reviews?
