In a series of YouTube and Facebook videos Liz followed the 2016 presidential campaign trail and she continues to provide updates on recent political actions and controversial social issues.

In her first segment, Liz tackled the biggest and baddest topic she could find - Donald Trump. As it became more and more likely that Trump would be the Republican nominee for the November election, the Internet exploded: cue the jokes, memes, and millions of Americans pledging to move to Canada should he be elected. Of course, there is truth rooted in every joke, and Trump is no laughing matter. In this interview with Liz, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated that the immense number of Americans begging for Canadian citizenship gave him "tremendous confidence" that "they're going to make sure that the government that gets elected...represents their values and priorities."
