After Trump, Canada needs to guard against fear-fuelled politics

Metro News interviewed David Moscrop, a UBC political scientist and PhD candidate, for a story on the need for Canada to be cautious about politics based on fear.

“We have this Canadian smugness that it couldn’t possible happen here, our people don’t think like that, we’re not xenophobic, we’re not racist, but that population exists,” he said.

Moscrop also spoke to Pique Magazine about the federal Liberals.

“It’s mixed across the board with nothing really standing out as major accomplishments, but you know, they also haven’t caulked anything up particularly badly,” he said. “That, to a lot of people, is good enough for now.”
