VIDEO: Canadian Federal Election 2015: Week 1

Early days for the 2015 federal election.

We’ll cover it and bring you the salient points of the long campaign.

Life in Québec publisher Andrew Greenfield chats with Colin Standish, a political observer and former potential candidate for the Liberal Party of Canada, eight days into the marathon 78-day federal election campaign.

In the first of a weekly series, we discuss the first televised leaders’ debate, what the parties and candidates can do to keep Canadians engaged, what issues will come to the fore during the campaign, and more.

Although he ran for the Liberal Party nomination in the Eastern Townships riding of Compton-Stanstead in the 2015 federal election, Standish, a graduate of the Université Laval law school, appears here as an informed political observer and private advocate for a better Québec and Canada.

Have a watch and let us know what you think.

Your feedback is appreciated and always welcome.
