As Canadians went to the polls for our 2011 federal General Election, TVOntario’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin convened its four broadcast essayists to discuss the state of Canada’s democrac.

The broadcast is available via streaming video through my YouTube Channel, as well as directly above.

After a long campaign notable for bitter partisan attacks and for exalting low politics over high policy, I found the debate with my colleagues Tony Keller, Carla Lucchetta, and Jordan Peterson both enjoyable and personally enlightening.

Ultimately, the results of the election were, in my view, a calamity for Canada and for our better political traditions, but that is a subject for another day!
