SACPA: Did anyone win the 2019 Canadian federal election?

November 21, 2019

Today at SACPA, the guest speaker unpacked the results of the October 21 federal election.

He argued that the unusual results of the election and feelings of alienation aren’t disconnected, and that our electoral system makes our parliament look more divided than voters actually are.
