Voting & Political Insights with Andrew Reeve – GT005

The Govern...This!? Podcast

01-05-2017 • 1 hr 35 mins

This chat with Andrew was really fun and I learned a ton! He is great at explaining things and has quite the resume which he skims through during our chat. Andrew is a Political Science graduate from the University of Victoria who works in the Whip's Office at the Legislature. He is also currently the Campaign Manager for Esquimalt-Metchosin Liberal Candidate Barb Desjardins for the coming 2017 BC Election on May 9th. (** I should note that all of the thoughts and opinions he gives here are His alone and he is Not speaking on behalf of any political party or candidate). We cover a lot of stuff in this episode and it's hard to narrow some bullet points down to give you a good overview - as I find so much of it to be important for this coming election... but here are a few things that you'll hear us talk about: - His background and how he got to leading a campaign for the 2017 BC Election - The different voting styles people tend to use - party based, local candidate based or issue based - The lack of civic/political education and how the reason people often don't vote is because they simply don't feel educated enough to do so - His view of the differences in the political parties ... and the differences of the federal vs provincial versions of these Parties - How, in preparation for a provincial election, we should look at our current MLA's and their past 4years to determine what we are looking for in an MLA for the next 4years. - How we should dig into and scrutinize each Parties Platform, which the public can online **see below links** - And we address some of the issues coming up in this campaign, like: Site C Dam, Political Party Donations, Trickle Down Economics, Daycare, - I also learn about Populism and how this is used in politics (eg, Daycare is a "populous promise") ... and much more. Thanks for listening & I hope you enjoy! *If you like what you hear and you think it’s important, please share it with as many people as you can… hopefully we can all become a little more aware and involved.* – Until Next time… Stay Curious – CJ 🙂 ***Party Platforms*** BC Greens Party Platform BC Liberal Party Platform BC Liberal Party – Vancouver Island Platform BC NDP Party Platform Buy us a Coffee $5...  a Beer $8... or some Time, Energy or Equipment $$ - Many thanks for all the Support!! http://www.governthis.ca http://www.facebook.com/governthis twitter: @WeGovernThis *SHOW NOTES ... to come
