Martin Regg Cohn with the 2016-2017 OLIP interns

We recently sat down with the Toronto Star’s Martin Regg Cohn, who treated us to his annual Queen’s Park pep talk. It was a great opportunity to speak with someone who follows Ontario’s political happenings as closely as we do.

We heard an interesting perspective on the importance of Ontario’s provincial parliament from a journalist who has had the opportunity to write for the Star not only from Queen’s Park but also from Ottawa, Asia, and the Middle East. We discussed road tolls, provincial by-elections, and a transition over the years from transformational to transactional politics, both at home and abroad.

It’s no secret that three times a week the OLIP interns flip (or scroll and click) to the Martin Regg Cohn column for our dose of journalistic analysis on both the political issues of the day, and the ones that are here to stay at Queen’s Park.  

Thank you Martin for taking the time to meet with us!
