The Eager Beaver Podcast Interview Project Episode 18: Ontario Liberal Party Candidate for Mushkegowuk-James Bay, Matthew Pronovost
(Recording date: May 9, 2022)
The Eager Beaver Pod asks its guests if they're willing to provide an extended interview, so that we may better get to know them/what makes them tick.
When they agree, we package it together and present to you as part of this series.
This week's guest, Matthew Pronovost, is an educator, father, volunteer firefighter and proud Franco-Ontarian, from the northern part of the province, who decided that now was the time to roll up his sleeves and get more deeply involved as a candidate for the Ontario Liberal Party in the electoral district of Mushkegowuk-James Bay.
We enjoy an extensive discussion during which we touch upon how he came to politics, what he brings to the game, and the policies for which he advocates.
We talk about education, health, harm reduction, Laurentian university, northern economic development, and access to education in French, including the dream of an autonomous French language university.
It's time to vote; let's make sure it's an informed choice.
Because we believe that Democracy Is Something You Do...
If good care and treatment of animals is a cause dear to your heart, Veterinarians Without Borders Canada is working with Ukraine animal shelters to get them emergency food, water, and the basics for survival. If you can help, the link will direct you to their donation page.
Finally, on a lighter note, we want to know: What are you looking forward to most this spring?
You can do that via our show’s Facebook blog page on via Twitter @TrueEager.
Of course, retweets, shares, gentle corrections, constructive criticism, compliments, tips, requests and positive reviews (if you think we deserve some stars, please rate us) are always welcome.
Until then, be kind to, and gentle with, yourselves,
Your Eager Beaver
