From podcasts to radio, Jason also recommends what’s been keeping him entertained during the social distancing.

  2. Politicians and their staff in Ottawa enjoy that face to face interaction but they have been really open to transitioning to a virtual working environment.
  3. When engaging with minister’s offices, it’s important to look at the details they need to move things forward, such as considering the economic and regional impact. Specifically, what the numbers are around that and what is the additionally. It needs to be more about getting folks back to work, but also what the positive implication you will see.
