THE TRILL PODCAST: On the soul of Ontario's Liberal Party

The Liberal leadership race heated up after Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie said the party had moved too far to the left; leadership hopeful Nathaniel Erskine-Smith weighs in

It's been three months since Village Media launched The Trillium, a must-read news website devoted to in-depth, insider coverage of politics and policy at the Ontario Legislature.

Led by Editor-in-Chief Jessica Smith Cross, The Trillium boasts a talented roster of experienced Queen’s Park journalists, including Deputy Editor Charlie Pinkerton and reporters Aidan Chamandy, Sneh Duggal and Jack Hauen.

Passionate and plugged in, our Queen's Park team covers every angle of the Legislative Assembly, delivering the major political headlines of the day while unpacking complex policy changes and digging deeper into key issues that impact every Ontarian. The Trillium also keeps a close watch on legislative debates, question period, public appointments, lobbying activity and regulatory proposals.

If you haven't checked it out already, the site also features one of the best political podcasts around: The Trill. You can listen to every episode here, or wherever you find your favourite podcasts.

On the latest episode, Liberal MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith talks about his bid to lead the Ontario Liberal Party. The interview begins with recent comments by Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie on the party moving too far to the left — and whether Erskine-Smith agrees — before launching into a wide-ranging conversation about his thoughts on the party's direction and what kind of leader he would be.
