Paul Adams

Veteran journalist (The NationalCBC RadioGlobe and Mail) and associate professor of journalism at Carleton University, Paul Adams, draws on in-depth interviews with politicians and insiders, exploring the behind-the-scenes issues and partisan politics that keep the opposition parties apart and distracted from the public interest.
