Regular readers of this blog will recall that I was invited by the National Post to participate in their series of reflections on the idea of a coalition uniting the Liberals and the NDP. Subsequently the Post asked me and Michael Byers to participate in a podcast discussion about the coalition idea as part of their Full Comment series. Click here to listen.

Brian Lee Crowley of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, and UBC political science professor Michael Byers, join Chris Selley to discuss Canada's political future.
