Ford's Lawton dilemma and other political stories in London
London Morning panel talks about the local scene as the provincial election campaign starts
CBC Radio's London Morning convened a panel of keen political watchers Wednesday as the provincial election campaign officially kicked off.
Host Julianne Hazlewood was joined by three guests;
- Jackie Newman, associate professor of political science at King's University College
- Matt Farrell, professor of inter-disciplinary studies at Fanshawe College
- Zack Taylor, assistant professor of political science at Western University
Among the observations and prognostications shared — Jackie Newman predicts incumbent candidates in London will be re-elected.
Matt Farrell believes the Liberals will hit hard on Andrew Lawton story as it fits into their narrative for Doug Ford.
Zack Taylor sees a different kind of PC populism emerging as Liberal support in southwestern Ontario continues its downward trend.
