Seneca Media Unscripted: The Federal Election and Indigenous Issues ft. Mark Solomon
On October 21, 2019, Canadians across the country will head to the polls to cast their votes in the 43rd General Federal Election in our history.
Among those issues being discussed throughout the election are Indigenous and First Nations issues and Education. Someone who is a uniquely qualified source on both topics is Mark Solomon— Associate Dean of Student Services and Indigenous Education at Seneca College. With master’s degrees in Education, and Social Justice and Equity Studies, combined with over ten years in education administration, he is well positioned to speak on a number of issues facing students, indigenous peoples, and indigenous students.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Mark and deep dive into the election issues we will be facing when we hit the polls for election day. Mark touched on the Federal government funding and policies in education with respect to funding for Indigenous students, immigration policies, foreign student policies and other policies that impact education.
We won’t give too much away, but the key takeaway from this podcast with Mark is that it is so important to be informed about your options.
This Monday, October 21, 2019, be informed and be ready, because you have a choice to make. Be educated, hear from your local candidates and find out what each party’s policy is about. Your voice matters and your vote counts.
