Canadian politician of the week

We spend a lot of time, criticising our Canadian federal, provincial, municipal and First Nations politicians, but let's see if we can also recognize constructive political achievements by choosing our Canadian politician of the week. For this week's nomination, I would like to recommend BC's Attorney General David Eby, for his hard work on money-laundering, and also for his input on the Kinder Morgan pipeline fiasco.

Would you buy a used car from Charles DeSouza, the soon-to-be-unemployed finance minister of Ontario? Pick any youtube and watch him speak.

My recommendation for this week’s politician is BC’s Green MLA Sonia Furstenau
