Each week, we’ll bring you a panel discussion with Canada’s leading journalists, columnists, politicos, and change makers discussing what’s happening in the newsphere.

This week we’re joined by columnist and commentator Tom Parkin & activist and National Post columnist Adam Zivo to explore the blocking of young leftists from nomination by the ONDP — what’s at stake and how do we fix it? Former candidate for NDP president Jessa McLean has taken the federal party to task. What will come of the issues she and others have raised? The stories have just decided to stick with O’Toole as leader, should the other parties open leadership reviews?
