With the recovery from COVID-19 becoming more and more visible on the horizon, and with the recent release of Canada’s federal budget, we are taking a look at Canada’s role in the world and how we can help ensure a just recovery for all. We’re excited to bring you three special editions of our 15 Minutes to Change the World podcast, hosted by our President and CEO Barbara Grantham. Barbara invited different Canadian policy makers from different political parties to speak about Canadian international assistance: why helping the world helps Canada, what we’re doing and what we can do better, and the way forward.
In this episode, Barbara speaks with Heather McPherson, Member of Parliament for Edmonton Strathcona, Alberta and Deputy House Leader of the New Democratic Party. Ms. McPherson is also a member of the Subcommittee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development.
