Tune in to the recorded version of rabble.ca’s live-politics panel on national politics: Off The Hill. This monthly episode was live on Thursday, October 14. The theme this month: Back to a hung Parliament. How do we make it work for people?
Join hosts Libby Davies and Robin Browne with MP Leah Gazan, Rachel Snow, Chuka Ejeckam and Karl Nerenberg as they have a fast-paced discussion on national politics. What just happened with that federal election? Will this minority Parliament be different than the last? What are the big issues on the Parliamentary agenda? How do we influence that agenda outside of the election cycle?
Off the Hill is a quick-moving live politics panel on current issues of national significance. It features guests and a discussion you won’t find anywhere else, centred on the impacts politics and policy have on people, and on ways to mobilize to bring about progressive change in national politics — on and off the hill.
