Is blue the new orange in the northeast?

#onpoli

Guest: Claude Sharma. Northeastern Ontario is shaping up to be one of the most interesting regions in the provincial election. A 2016 byelection win in Sault Ste. Marie gave the Progressive Conservative party an opening, but the region has deep NDP roots. And while the Liberal party has only one seat, it's held by prominent MPP Glenn Thibeault. TVO's northeastern hub reporter Claude Sharma joins The Agenda on Politics to provide insight into the issues that will drive votes in the region. Host: John Michael McGrath, Producers: Colin Ellis and Tim Alamenciak, Technical Producer: Matthew O'Mara, Podcast Intern: Michal Stein, Production Coordinator: Caitlin Plummer, Podcast Manager: Hannah Sung.
