The Hub Roundtable breaks down a ridiculous Conservative debate and the unserious Ontario election

This week’s Hub Dialogue Roundtable discusses whether the Conservative Party of Canada has a problem on its hands after a silly official debate that featured lightning-round responses on serious topics, sound effects, and an uninspiring crop of candidates.

They also dig into the Ontario election and a Liberal Party platform that harkens back to Justin Trudeau’s first platform in 2015. Finally, they ask the question, “Is Doug Ford actually a conservative?”
