Election 2019 Breakfast Series | Looking Ahead to the 43rd Parliament

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 07:30to09:00
Rideau Club, 99 Bank Street,15th floor, Ottawa

Federal election campaigns hit us with a tornado of headlines, political ads, social media posts, and polls. Policy Options, in partnership with the Max Bell School of Public Policy, invites you to take a breather from the noise and join us for a series of substantive conversations about how the 2019 campaign is unfolding.

This final panel in the Policy Options election breakfast series will consider the results of the general election and the likelihood that the new Parliament will produce a stable government. We will explore what the makeup of the House of Commons says about interregional relationships and the ability of the government — of whatever colour or stripe — to govern in a way that is reflective of the federation as a whole.
