Newsmaker Peter Mansbridge Returns with a CBC Documentary on the Upcoming Election
InThe Way You See It, veteran news anchor Peter Mansbridge taps into Canadians' deepest hopes, fears, and feelings about the federal election.
“I just basically camped out at everything from a rodeo to a stock car race to a farmer's market, you name it. Sat there, people came and sat down with me, [and] I said, 'OK, what's on your mind?’” Peter Mansbridge said of his new special, when speaking to Cross Country Checkup. The former news correspondent for The National admitted he saw a different side of the election this year by hitting the road.
“I really had people talking to me about what their concerns were and those concerns, in a lot of cases [...] were not focused on themselves; they were focused on their kids,” he said. No matter the issue, be it climate change, health care, education, or debt, “they all related to the kind of country we're going to leave for our kids.”
“I found that different from the past where the focus was always, ‘What are [the party leaders] going to do for me?’”
The Way You See It: A Peter Mansbridge Special will air on CBC on October 18th.
