POLICORNER just turned one
A look back on year one of your insider's guide to Canadian politics
It’s a milestone: POLICORNER just turned one!
We launched this newsletter one year ago — on the heels of a federal election campaign — with a mission of taking you inside the halls of power and informing political watchers on everything happening inside the political arena.
We have since published dozens and dozens of editions (read them all here). We covered a federal and provincial election. We had the scoop on a number of big stories. We interviewed a score of policymakers and power players. We told you about the political drama and reported on the political gossip.
The newsletter is now read by a growing community. Staffers at Queen’s Park and on Parliament Hill. Elected officials. Political candidates. Public servants. Journalists. Political junkies who want to stay informed on all things politics.
Here are some of our biggest stories from year one:
Breaking the news that former NDP captain Andrea Horwath was gearing up for a mayoral bid in Hamilton
The scoop on three MPs running for Speaker of the House of Commons
An inside look at the caucus revolt that led to the ousting of the Conservative leader — and an early look at who might take up the leadership mantle
An exclusive profile of the Speaker of the House of Commons
Our exit interview with the former Scientific Director of the COVID-19 Science Table
