April 15, 2018

School of Communication and Culture Assoc. Prof. Geo Takach spoke with Calvin To of CHEK News about the political discourse surrounding the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline project.

Here is an excerpt:

“What we’re seeing in the communication around the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline reflects the polarization that we’re seeing more and more of in political discourse where positions are sharply and archly drawn and you don’t see a lot of movement […]. Much of the political discourse that we see is around the political price that these leaders are going to have to pay for promoting or backing down on their position.”
