Off the Hill presents, Elxn44: No time to waste on the status quo

Join host Robin Browne, and guests Libby Davies, Chuka Ejeckam, Rachel Snow and Diana Yoon for an insightful discussion of the real issues facing us as September 20th quickly approaches: climate, Indigenous rights, and a post-pandemic inclusive recovery. We can all feel it; we’re at a tipping point on each of these issues. There’s no time left for same-old. We need to make this election count. 

We are in the middle of a short five week election that no one wanted — well, except perhaps for the governing Liberals who hope to gain a majority while voters are distracted by a fourth wave of the pandemic and the low ebb of summer. 

Off the Hill is’s thought-provoking live panel on current issues of national significance, from a progressive and critically applied perspective you won’t find anywhere else. Discussions are centered on impacts of politics and policy on people and mobilizing to bring about progressive change.
