PrimeTime Politics Weekend - April 20, 2007

Host Martin Stringer reviews the week’s headlines, including a report tabled by Environment Minister John Baird before a House of Commons Committee on Energy, the Environment, and Natural Resources. The report, entitled “The Cost of Bill C-288 to Canadian Families and Business,” claims that respecting Kyoto Accord targets would trigger an economic recession in Canada. Martin sits down with a panel of MPs to discuss the report further. The panellists are MPs Gary Goodyear (Conservative), John Godfrey (Liberal), Thierry St-Cyr (Bloc Québécois), and Peter Stoffer (NDP).

Martin conducts a video interview with Ted Morton (Alberta Minister of Sustainable Resource Development and former senator-in-waiting), focusing on Senate reforms proposed by the Conservative Party.

Journalists Susan Lunn and Bill Curry join Martin in the studio to review the week’s proceedings in the House.
