MP and Toronto mayoral candidate Olivia Chow has worn a lot of hats in Toronto and Ottawa over the years, but she recently sat down with CBC's Jian Ghomeshi on his show, Q, to talk about a recent addition to her impressive résumé: author.

Her book, My Journey (HarperCollins Canada) is a frank and compelling look at Chow's background, particularly her turbulent childhood.

In the interview, Chow speaks about her parents' struggles, her relationship with late NDP leader Jack Layton and cites Ghomeshi own memoir, 1982, as an inspiration.
