CJF J-Talk: Election 2015: How the Votes Were Won

In the wake of the Oct. 19 federal election, which strategies and issues had the most impact in this tight and historic long-running election race? What role did attack ads, social media and limited media coverage play? Did hot button, high-profile issues such as the niqab and Syrian refugees swing votes?Tom Clark, chief political correspondent for Global National and the host of The West Block with Tom Clark, will moderate this discussion with Susan Delacourt, author and columnist for the Toronto Star; Adam Radwanski, political columnist with The Globe and Mail; Hannah Thibedeau, political reporter for CBC News; and Paul Wells, political editor of Maclean’s magazine.
