Dispatch from the Front Line: Not all failures are measured in polls or counted in ballot boxes
A bad poll for Trudeau. A reversal on guns. A big media update. And a reminder that we don't live in a clash of narratives, we live in a country.

We also have a dispatch video to make you feel better, though.
And a podcast version!
