Sean Antrim, a co-editor The Mainlander, talks to Joseph Planta about the current municipal election campaign, what could happen November 19th, and the issues.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.
We continue looking at the municipal election here in Vancouver with my guest now Sean Antrim. He’s someone whose work has hit my radar because I’ve been following him on Twitter. His handle is @seanantrim. He’s an artist, economist, and thoughtful political observer. He co-founded The Mainlander, a website that’s covering this municipal election, providing analysis and interviews with candidates. That’s at www.themainlander.com. It’s billed itself as ‘Vancouver’s Place for Progressive Politics.’ Sean’s got another website, VIEWdalism, it’s also quite good www.viewdalism.wordpress.com. We’ll discuss the campaign from his vantage point a week before the November 19th vote. Who’s up, who’s down, who’s ahead and who’s not. Also, we’ll look at the themes throughout this campaign. Occupy Vancouver seems to be revolving around and in this election. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Sean Antrim; Good morning, Mr. Antrim.
