How We Got Here: Part 2 & Ian Bushfield on Vancouver's Election

5:06pm - 6:11pm

Democracy Watch starts out with Part 2 of our documentary series, "How We Got Here." This episode, titled: "Vancouver's Civic Government," provides a meaningful look at why our unique electoral system is adding to the weirdness of Vancouver's 2018 civic election.

We then turn to an interview with local, self-taught election expert and politics podcaster, Ian Bushfield. Ian has been graphing and charting the Vancouver municipal election through public surveys and open-source information sharing. He talks about his participatory reporting methods and gives us a summary of the status on this year's increasingly confusing civic election.
