Former chief electoral officer Jean Pierre Kingsley muses about Canada’s third-party advertising in the leadup to the next federal vote. Ottawa MP Paul Dewar chats about the controversy surrounding the proposed memorial to victims of communism. And the Maclean’s politics panel talks about former MP Dean Del Mastro’s sentencing.
