Experience of a Political Novice

November 7th, 1:00-3:00 pm

In the summer of 2015, fed up with the government of the day, Noah Richler decided it was time to pitch in and run for office. His misfortune, he did so for the NDP in the one election in seven that the pollsters got right. Sure, he lost—he was never really expected to win—but, the true prize, the experience of a political campaign turned out to be one of the best and most meaningful of his life.
