Political Commentator, Policy Analyst & Recovering Law School Graduate
Supriya is fluently trilingual in English, French and Hindi, so that means she can give you her (unsolicited) opinion in all three languages. Being the good Indian girl that she is, Supriya graduated with a Bachelor of Science from McGill University, and upon completion she was accepted into both medical and law school.
Much to the chagrin of her parents, Supriya opted to pursue the legal route where she could finally use her argumentative powers for good. She completed her LL.B in civil law at the University of Montreal, and is currently a J.D. candidate for May of 2013.
She is a regular contributor to CJAD 800 and is the co-host and producer for " Delmar & Dwivedi". The show features Supriya and her co-host, Dan Delmar, a commentator for The National Post, taking a critical look at the week's hot topics and politics, whilst being funny and un-boring, setting them apart from every other talk show currently covering Canadian politics. It airs Sundays at 1pm on CJAD 800.
Supriya also works as a Research Assistant and Policy Analyst for the Centre of Genomics and Policy, where her work involves liability issues involved in direct-to-consumer genetic profiling, e-consent, the commercialization of stem cells, and the consequent challenges to the Canadian regulatory framework. But her parents still tell their friends she’s in her 4th year of medical school.
She blogs on politics, religion, legal issues, women's rights, and lives in Montreal with her dog, Cody.
