Jenny Kwan on Immigrant Detention, Vancouver's Newly Randomized Ballot & The Green Party Nomination Meeting

5:02pm - 5:59pm

Democracy Watch starts off with a short interview with NDP MP Jenny Kwan. Kwan discusses Canada's detention of noncitizen, including children, in the wake of Trump's policy to separate immigrant children from parents at the Mexico-U.S. border. After that we turn to Vancouver's new randomized ballot policy and feature political scientist and University of Calgary professor, Jack Lucas, who challenges the idea that voting in Vancouver will now be fairer with a randomized ballot. The show ends with an original report from Vancouver's Green Party election nomination meeting, including an interview with incumbent city councillor, Adriane Carr.
