PrimeTime Politics Weekend

December 14, 2007

Host Martin Stringer reviews the week’s headlines.

David Brown (chair of the Task Force on Governance and Cultural Change in the RCMP) joins Martin in the studio to discuss details of a report released by the task force, which provides recommendations for improved accountability within the RCMP.

Martin discusses key political developments with a panel of MPs featuring Deepak Obhrai (Conservative), Mauril Bélanger (Liberal), and Alexa McDonough (NDP). Discussion focuses on testimony provided by former prime minister Brian Mulroney before the House of Commons ethics committee, which is investigating past business relations between Mr. Mulroney and German businessman Karlheinz Schreiber.

Journalists John Geddes and Susan Lunn join Martin in the studio to analyze the week’s major political news stories.
