Don’t forget the small c’s

So enjoyed and appreciated it this podcast. As a Canadian who is about to be voting in her first election since coming back from overseas for many years, I’m thinking this podcast will help inform my vote. My one bone to pick- why the liberals are playing up Scheer’s social conservatism? They are trying to get the support of small c conservatives like me. I want smaller gov, but I want full choices for women. Who the heck do I vote for?

A bit partisan for my taste

I don’t mind hosts having their own perspectives, but some balance would be a positive. Rosemary articulates a Liberal Party perspective, and Elamin is clearly left on the political spectrum. There is no right wing representation. I found the partisanship consensus becomes obvious as they dive into almost every issue- immigration, abortion, SNC Lavalin etc.

I thought it was a interesting experiment, but I can’t recommend the podcast.
