Culture At A Crossroads
Former Green Party leader, environmentalist, and activist Elizabeth May joins the show for a candid conversation about her personal faith, the way she has risen to power in Canadian politics, and to talk about her conviction for the environment. Don't miss how, despite her parents leaving the church, she was redirected back by a Jewish rabbi. Plus, how she avoids hate politics, her aspirations to study theology, and what she is trying to learn most in prayer.
She talks about former Senior Cabinet Minister Tony Clement’s personal failure and how she continued to pray for him. May also shares her career goal of running for Speaker of the house, and her career game plan beyond 66.
