Read the full transcript of the student federal elections roundtable here.

On September 30, student representatives of Canada’s four main political parties – the Liberals, the Conservatives, the New Democratic Party, and the Green Party – came to The Varsity’s studio to discuss the upcoming election. We conducted a random draw for seating positions, and had a comprehensive conversation about some of the election issues that are most central to students. The student representatives vouched for their parties, defended criticism from their colleagues, threw some political punches, and found common ground. By the end of the discussion, one thing was very clear: the election on October 19 is pivotal for young people, and no matter which party you vote for, you will want your voice heard.
