Shakespeare wrote that misery acquaints a man with strange bed-fellows, and news commentators say endlessly that politics does the same. At Spur, we think that strange bed-fellows often make for the most illuminating conversations. We’ve challenged a Poet (Brandon Wint) and Politician (The Honourable Kathleen Ganley, Minister for Justice and Solicitor General ) to sit down in conversation about “The Process of Progress.” What is the value of advocating from the outside vs.working from within legislative systems, and the roles journalism, government and institutions play in moving the dial forward.
