Ed Broadbent Spent a Lifetime Seeking Democracy, Equality and Real Freedom

Luke Savage explains how Ed Broadbent devoted his life to a struggle for democratic and egalitarian principles

 

You might know Ed Broadbent as the former leader of Canada’s federal NDP.

But Broadbent was more than just a political party leader — he also spent a lifetime seeking social and democratic change outside partisan politics in academia and civil society, both in Canada and around the world.

On this episode of Sources, PressProgress Editor Luke LeBrun is joined by Luke Savage, a contributor to Jacobin and co-author of Broadbent’s book  Seeking Social Democracy, to explain and remember Ed Broadbent’s life and his ideas.
