Publisher Rudyard Griffiths and Editor-at-Large Sean Speer discuss Parliament adjourning for the summer, which public policy topics dominated this past legislative session, the upcoming Toronto-St. Paul’s federal byelection, and what can be read in the political tea leaves heading into the summer break. They also discuss the future of the Liberal party, whether or not Justin Trudeau will step down, and if there is still room in the party for centrists and blue Liberals.
