This week's episode is a real shot in the arm.
Rob Shaw has spent more than 13 years covering BC politics, now reporting for CHEK News and writing for The Orca. He is the co-author of the national best-selling book A Matter of Confidence, and a regular guest on CBC Radio.
Jillian Oliver is a political strategist who co-managed the last BC Green Party provincial campaign and Sonia Furstenau’s leadership campaign. She was Communications Director on the federal Nanaimo-Ladysmith by-election that elected Paul Manly and was the BC Greens Press Secretary in the 2017 provincial election and in the BC Greens legislative office from 2017-2019.
Katy Merrifield is the Vice-President for BC at Wellington Advocacy, who has served as Communications Director to Premiers of both Alberta and British Columbia, and was the youngest woman to run a winning leadership campaign in BC.
Maclean Kay is Editor-in-Chief of The Orca, and is an 11-year veteran of the BC legislature both working in government and now covering it.
- Last week, Political Capital 3 was a big dam episode. A real sight to see.
- In October, Maclean Kay wrote about the problem women face in politics – across the political spectrum.
- In 2019, Puneet Sandhar sat down with Rick Cluff to talk about the issues women (still!) face in politics, the boardroom, the pay window, and much more.
