Saison 12

14. Do We Need Political Parties?

WEB AVAILABILITY :  8 weeks  8 wk

Montrealers will be heading to the polls to choose a mayor at the end of 2021. We know that Mayor Plante's Projet Montréal will be on the ballots. But the opposition candidates aren't so clear. That's because two of the three opposition parties in the last election disappeared after the vote. The other changed its leader and its name. That brings up the question... Do we need parties at the municipal level or should all councillors run as independents? We ask the experts.

Guest(s) : Harold Chorney, Political Scientist Anne Lagacé Dowson, Journalist Paul Gott, Journalism Professor
