We’ve released Episode #4 of the Examineradio podcast, featuring interviews with both Graham Steele and Howard Epstein.
This week: should Mayor Mike Savage call in the army to clear the city of snow?; Halifax Transit posts record overtime costs; remembering Allan Rowe and Matthew Wuest; and interviews with former Finance Minister Graham Steele and former MLA Howard Epstein on the historic collapse of the NDP provincial government.
Both former NDP MLAs have authored new books on their experiences in the legislature. Steele’s What I Learned About Politics looks at the problems inherent in our win-at-any-costs system. Epstein’s Rise Again: Nova Scotia’s NDP on the Rocks takes a narrower focus, examining specifically the NDP’s rise to power, and the loss of the party soul that led to its 2013 defeat.

“If it turns out that the NDP really is not going to be a progressive vehicle in the future, then I think there is some chance a new party will be created to be that edgy third party that’s neceessary here.” – Howard Epstein, former NDP Halifax Chebucto MLA
