The 2021 election has been an ‘expression of anger’

When Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau called an election on Aug. 15, he said Canadians deserved a chance to choose which party should lead the country through the COVID-19 pandemic recovery. But according to Sean Speer of the Public Policy Forum, the campaign "devolved into skirmishes on hot-button issues like abortion and guns" and exposed the anger and frustration felt among many Canadians across the country.

On this episode of Crisis Management, Alicja Siekierska and Speer discuss the key issues that have emerged in this election, what's driving anger among voters and how the campaign was a missed opportunity for more serious policy discussions.
