What is Voice of BC?

Voice of BC, Shaw TV’s weekly public affairs program, has been produced for the past 19 years.

Voice of BC is hosted by respected Vancouver Sun columnist Vaughn Palmer. One of B.C.’s foremost political commentators, Palmer brings his unique style and perspective on B.C. politics to this series.
