The 2019 election may have a discouraging tone but it is likely to be a critical one nonetheless. This session will cover some of the issues in play and the tactical conundrums that voters—especially in BC— are likely to face. It will also set the election in the context of trends in the Canadian party system and in its obvious comparators.
