Sincere thanks to our distinguished panel: David Coletto, CEO of Abacus Data, Susan Delacourt from the Toronto Star, Joel-Denis Bellavance from LaPresse, and Christopher Waddell, Professor Emeritus, School of Journalism and Communications at Carleton University, for their keen insights and reflections.

With questions from our moderator Maureen Boyd, Chair, Parliamentary Centre and others from the audience, our guests engaged in a thoughtful and wide-ranging discussion on the latest polling data, prospects for the shape of the post-election parliament, the impact of Covid-19 on the campaign, a heightening of political tension and polarization, and much more!

We would like to sincerely thank Benoit-Antoine Bacon, President and Vice-Chancellor of Carleton University, for his participation.

And a very special thanks to our sponsors for making this event possible. They are: Air Canada, CN, the Insurance Bureau of Canada, Manulife, Nutrien, Suncor, Telus, TD and Toyota.
