In today’s Big Story podcast, on the second-to-last day possible, Manitoba’s government called an election one year early. So in September, the provincial Progressive Conservatives will try to secure another mandate—and then six weeks later their federal counterparts will try to turn the province all blue.
Today’s episode is part one of our Lay of the Land project. In the weeks leading up to the federal election, we’ll dive into the issues impacting voters in every province and territory, examine how their votes will be won or lost, and what the state of play in their province can tell us now about what to expect when the country goes to the polls.
