Welcome back to Political Debrief! Today, I am joined by Waterloo Ontario NDP MPP and Finance Critic, Catherine Fife to talk about the Ontario Greenbelt Controversy. We talked about why young people should care about this and the impact of the recent news that the R.C.M.P. has opened an investigation. In the audio-only version (found below), I learned more about the work MPPs do at Queen’s Park and Catherine Fife reflected on how well MPPs are working together.
