To The Brink: Four Weeks in Canadian Politics

A world-wide financial meltdown of historic proportions leads to a made-in-Canada political crisis the likes of which have not been seen since the days of Mackenzie King.

“To the Brink: Four Weeks in Canadian Politics” chronicles the short and turbulent events of the first session of the 40th Parliament. From the Speech from the Throne to chaos in the Commons, prorogation of the house and the coronation of a new Liberal leader, this two-hour program takes CPAC viewers inside the halls of power. Told entirely through the words of MPs, ministers and other power players in Question Period, Hill scrums and press conferences, it is a high-drama, history-making saga of power politics which has brought the Harper government “To the Brink”.
