The political commentator and public affairs consultant Adam Daifallah talks about last night’s federal election, Jack Layton and the NDP’s success in Quebec, Stephen Harper’s majority, and how the Conservatives got their majority, with Joseph Planta.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.
Adam Daifallah joins me again. The public affairs consultant, lawyer, academic, and journalist joins me from Montreal, Quebec, a province painted orange in last night’s federal election. We’ll ask Mr. Daifallah, what happened? What accounts for Jack Layton and the NDP’s success? What happened to the Liberal Party of Canada across the country? And how Stephen Harper got his majority? Six years ago, Adam Daifallah was on this program to talk about a book he co-authored with Tasha Kheiriddin, Rescuing Canada’s Right: Blueprint for a Conservative Revolution. It’s apt to talk to him now, and see what’s happened since. Mr. Daifallah is a senior partner at MRCNR Strategy Advisors, a Montreal firm. He lectures at McGill, and appears on occasion in the National Post, where he was once a member of their editorial board. The websites for more are: www.daifallah.com and www.mrcnr.net. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Adam Daifallah; Good morning, Mr. Daifallah.
