Professor Jonathan Malloy On #ELXN44 And Why Campaigns Matter....Sometimes The Carleton University Political Science Podcast

    • Education

In many ways, the campaign trail of the 44th Federal Election has been a campaign unlike any other in Canadian history. Called amidst a resurgence of COVID-19 infection rates due in large part to the delta variant, the campaign has seen the Liberal and Conservative Parties of Justin Trudeau and Erin O’Toole respectively at dead heat since the drop of the writ, with the only predictable outcome being that the next government of Canada will likely be a minority government.

But the most pronounced aspect of the campaign may not be its potential outcome, but the ways in which public discontent has been mobilized in fragmented and even violent ways, targeting candidates, their staff and in particular Prime Minister Trudeau himself along the campaign trail.

As the campaign reached its final days with election day looming just around the corner, we spoke with Professor Jonathan Malloy about the campaign and the prospects ahead for the 44th parliament of Canada. Dr. Malloy is a professor with Carleton University’s Department of Political Science specializing in Canadian political institutions, and religion and politics; he is also the current Bell Chair for the study of Canadian Parliamentary Democracy and the Faculty of Public Affairs’ Associate Dean of Research and International.
