On The Line with Anthony Housefather, the (for now?) Liberal MP

On his political origins, growing up Jewish in Montreal, how our politics is changing, especially since Oct. 7th, and whether he still feels at home with the Liberals.
Anthony Housefather

Liberal MP Anthony Housefather has been one of the most outspoken supporters of Israel on the Liberal bench. Last week's NDP motion — roundly supported by his Liberal peers — has Housefather engaging in some serious soul searching about his future with the party. Will he cross the floor? Is he representative of a deeper political realignment? Why does he think the motion was "anti-Isreal"?

Housefather speaks about all of this, and more, with The Line's Jen Gerson.
