Is your wall calendar filling up with Xes as you count down the days until this fall’s federal election?
If so, you’re going to want to sign up for The Lead.
What’s that, you ask?
The Lead is a new newsletter that aims to become an essential part of your morning routine: a must-read, can’t-miss guide to all the latest election news from across the country, written by me, Kady O’Malley. I’ve been covering — and thinking about — federal politics for two decades for the CBC, Maclean’s, the Ottawa Citizen, the Hill Times, and, most recently, iPolitics.
In every edition, I’ll give you a hot-off-the-keyboard recap of all the latest action on the hustings. I’ll also be tracking the leaders’ tours, parsing the platform pitches, dissecting the talking points, tallying the gaffes and crunching the latest polling data — and, of course, offering my take on what it could mean in the battle for the ballot box and beyond, without picking favourites or pulling punches.
The goal: Giving you the information and context you need, no matter where you live or what your leanings may be. I very much hope you’ll invite me into your inbox, and I promise to make it worth it.
