Trudeau calls one byelection but snubs Jagmeet Singh and Burnaby South, while voters in Nanaimo will be looking at a provincial (and maybe? federal byelection) soon. Controversies continue to surround the proportional representation referendum as we approach the big Horgan v Wilkinson debate. And Trudeau unveils his carbon pollution pricing scheme (it’s not a tax anymore).

Also: Ian will be at VanPodFest on Thursday, November 8 at 2pm. Details at

And also on Thursday, we’ll be hosting a debate watching party at The Drive Coffee Bar on Commerical Drive from 6-8:30pm (the debate is 7-7:30pm). The event is free but please buy food/drinks to help meet our minimum spend. RSVP on Facebook
