WTF: What’s the future for progressive strategy under Trudeau? A rabble video debate

Like this panel discussion? rabble is reader-supported journalism. Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

The election is over… and there's a lot of discussion on rabble…on Facebook…everywhere. We hear Justin Trudeau is very handsome. We also hear a lot of announcements. 

Time to plan a course that will make sure the Liberal government sticks to its progressive promises and push them even further. 

rabble.ca brought together an incredible group of speakers to do just that.
