In this episode, I am excited to be welcoming Wellington-Halton-Hills MP Michael Chong to the show. We had a very interesting chat about his private member bill, the Reform Act, and why he thinks fewer young people are getting involved in politics. We also touched on the recent reports that his family in Hong Kong was threatened by a Chinese diplomat.
