Happy new year friends!
While the past few months have been a little slower on this blog than I had hoped, I wanted to share with you a few things I’ve written for other sites recently.
Firstly, I signed up to write for PoliPerspectives, it’s a newer project that asks young political commentators to offer their opinion on topical and controversial discussions happening in Canadian Politics, usually through a partisan lens.
In September, I loaned my voice to the site to comment on the NDP’s position about the legalization of cannabis. More specifically, a comparison of the different provincial plans to regulate the sale of cannabis.
You can read that piece here: PoliPerspectives September edition.
For their January issue, I took a look at Andrew Scheer’s expulsion of Lynn Beyak from the Conservative Senate caucus, and whether or not that constituted a break in his campaign promises around free speech.
That piece can be found here: PoliPerspectives January edition.
Check out the PoliPerspectives site for more commentary from my fellow peers on new topics each month.
Lastly, I was asked by my riding association, NDP Beaches-East York, to write an op-ed for their site. The Ethics Commissioner’s report that found Prime Minister Trudeau guilty of breaking the Conflict of Interest Act on four counts got me riled up enough to write this piece for their blog: Trudeau’s Ethics Scandal Proves Why Canada Needs a Working Class Prime Minister.
So that’s how I’ve been keeping busy in the world of Canadian politics!
Between donning my Political Commentator hat more often, and keeping up with the workload of my day job, I’m going to try my best to find more time to write things for this blog, and find new ways to engage in important conversations with all of you.
