Young and old, Canadians are disconnected from our Parliamentarians and, more than ever, Canadians are simply opting out of politics. In order to find out why, Samara has gone to both sources – the Canadian public and Members of Parliament. To get a better understanding of our MPs and how they see our democracy, with her colleagues at Samara, Alison travelled across Canada and conducted a series of “exit interviews” with 65 former MPs from all regions and political parties, the first project of its kind in the world. In terms of what they tell us about the health of our democracy, there’s good news, not so good news, and bad news.
In this discussion, Alison will share Samara’s findings from these frontlines of democracy, and lead a discussion on what we can do to renew democracy in Canada.
