As both a national affairs columnist with the Toronto Star and L’Actualité and weekly participant on CBC’s The National, Chantal is an expert on Canadian politics and we are honoured to have her share her insights on a range of topics including the new NAFTA treaty, the recent changes in the political landscape across the country, most notably with the election results in Quebec and New Brunswick and the upcoming release of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper's book “Right Now: Politics and Leadership in the Age of Disruption”.
Chantal Hébert is a national affairs writer with The Toronto Star, a guest columnist for L’Actualité, and a weekly participant on the political panel At Issue on CBC TV-The National.
