Campaign School: Allan Gregg
Polling, punditry and political advising will be on the agenda for a weeknight edition of Campaign School featuring longtime TVO host Allan Gregg. The session will include insights he has gleaned throughout his career, from Tory pollster, to founder of Decima Research, to fixture on the CBC "At Issue" panel.
With our series having played host to federal and municipal politicians, along with a look at the role of a press secretary, Gregg will share the experiences of how to play an influential role in the process without necessarily having your name on the ballot. New and returning students are invited to participate in this session of Campaign School — which takes place on Thursday night for the first time.
Metaviews presents a participatory series dedicated to sharing insights into political participation — from running for office, to rallying around a cause, to engaging in punditry through all forms of media.
Sessions will consist of debating, dissecting and discussing best practices, strategies and the necessary steps to succeed in having a voice heard in the political arena.
Campaign School will look at the emerging issues in both government and society, evaluate what it takes for a candidate or issue to click with voters and review lessons learned from recent political history. Whether you have entertained taking a run at public office, or just want to be a more engaged observer, each session will have something different to offer.
