In the aftermath of Jagmeet Singh’s convincing victory in the Burnaby South by-election, Ricochet co-founder and editor Derrick O’Keefe joins host Andre Goulet from Vancouver to discuss the federal NDP leader’s historic win.

Plus: what’s behind the surprising level of support for the xenophobic People’s Party of Canada in one of the country’s most diverse ridings?

And why does the latest Angus Reid polling on the SNC-Lavelin scandal pose a major concern for Justin Trudeau?
