The 2019 federal election will increasingly be the subject of our news headlines. While much of the coverage will focus on leader popularity and polling numbers, we shouldn’t forget to think about the important policy issues.  

Will carbon pricing, immigration, budget deficits, taxes, international trade, foreign policy, China, and indigenous reconciliation be key parts of the campaign? How will the Liberal government convince Canadians to renew its mandate? Which policy weaknesses will the Conservatives try to exploit? How can the NDP stay relevant and leverage its influence as the third party?

McGill University’s Max Bell School of Public Policy has assembled a panel of connected political insiders for a breakdown of what to expect in the next federal election. Join us on March 5, 2019 at the University Club in Toronto for this engaging discussion and insights into the policy issues that will matter in 2019.

Introduction: Christopher Ragan, Director of the Max Bell School

Panelists: Brian Topp, Ken Boessenkool, Amanda Alvaro
