Q NDP insider Brad Lavigne Mar 19, 2014 | 23:50When the late NDP leader Jack Layton rode atop the Orange Wave to bring Official Opposition status to the party in 2011, Brad Lavigne was the chief operative who helped set it into motion.

He speaks with Jian about his book, "Building the Orange Wave: The Inside Story Behind the Historic Rise of Jack Layton and the NDP", and gives his sense of the state of the NDP in 2002 compared to now.

Q Grant Lawrence brings "The Lonely End of the Rink" to Studio Q Mar 17, 2014 | 13:55There's a cultural assumption that every child born in the great white north of Canada is imbued with a love and devotion for hockey. And if those kids are born to highly competitive sports-fans, the pressure only mounts. Grant Lawrence, a musician and host of CBC Radio 3, was among those ushered onto the ice at a young age. He chronicles his early ambivalence toward the sport in a new memoir "The Lonely End of the Rink: Confessions of a Reluctant Goalie". Lawrence recalls the contrast between the hockey heroes on television and the bullying teammates who liked to pick on the "runt" goalie with big glasses. "I had a big struggle with that polarity," he admits.
