Now is the Time – Interview w/ Gordon Laxer

Sept 21, 2021 – How does a radical kid from Toronto end up running a public policy institute in Alberta? It’s just the path of life for Gordon Laxer. Gordon’s work took him to the belly of the beast, fighting for climate action in the heartland of oil & gas, and advocating for a renewed insurgency effort within the NDP — an effort that earned him a blacklisting from the party for his leadership in the Waffle. We discuss his life, his other, his work, and everything in between.
