Canadians have a lot to think about this election

By Dr. Linda Hancock on September 9th, 2021

I don’t believe I was the only person who was surprised when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decided to call an election for the end of September. The past few months have been very difficult ones for Canadians and to critics, this decision is costly and untimely. After meeting with the Governor General to request that ... Read More »
