    Why Canadians should care about the Quebec election

    Why Canadians should care about the Quebec election

    While Quebec’s election may be all but a done deal, with Francois Legault’s party holding a sizable polling lead over his opponents, it’s far from a sleeper election.
    Less than two weeks out from voting day and we’ve seen a race that upends traditional patterns of support, and has focused on controversial issues around languages, immigration and notions of freedom.
    National Post columnist Tasha Kheiriddin joins the show to discuss how Legault has managed to change the power dynamic in Quebec, why the Conservatives are a growing force, and how this election could have ramifications at the federal level.

    Pierre Poilievre's massive win presents Conservatives with a united front

    Pierre Poilievre’s first-ballot victory in the Conservative leadership race shows a party more unified than the campaign may have led many to believe.

    National Post political reporter Catherine Levesque joins me to discuss Poilievre’s win, what his message was to Canadians in his first speech as leader, and what comes next for the party. 
    Background reading: Poilievre says 'Canadians are hurting', promises to transform 'hurt into hope'

    Alberta conservatives spar over provincial 'sovereignty'

    In a province facing concerns over health care, education, and what to do with a booming oil-based budget surplus, the race to replace Jason Kenney as United Conservative Party and premier has largely focused on one major issue: Alberta’s autonomy.
    The discussion about various ways to advance Alberta’s place in Confederation was once again front and centre at the final leadership debate in Edmonton.
    National Post reporter Tyler Dawson joins the program to discuss Tuesday’s debate, whether anyone appears to have gained any ground on front-runner Danielle Smith, and why the issue of autonomy, or sovereignty, has been such a looming presence.
