The Challenges We Face - w/ NDP MP Lindsay Mathyssen

Lindsay Mathyssen is the NDP MP for London-Fanshawe, Critic for Women and Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Youth, Post Secondary Education as well as Deputy Whip, Deputy Critic for Export Promotion and International Trade and Deputy Critic for Small Business. Even with the enormity of that portfolio, she found some time to sit down with us to talk about the issues facing Canadians, the future of our politics, and the dangers of disenfranchisement of the electorate in the face of repeated broken promises by successive Liberal and Conservative governments. We explore the huge leaps made by the NDP in party building, and the possibilities of an imminent federal election, the key issues of universal pharmacare, dentalcare, and childcare, and everything that the NDP is doing in Ottawa to build a better country for working Canadians.
