CPAC’s Martin Stringer reviews the week’s headlines, including accusations among opposition parties that the Conservative Party is impeding the establishment of safe-injection sites for drug users.
Afterwards, Martin sits down with a panel of MPs to discuss concerns about the state of the Canadian economy. The MPs are Gary Goodyear (Conservative), Navdeep Bains (Liberal), and Denise Savoie (NDP).
Also on the program, journalists Norma Greenaway and Bruce Campion-Smith join Martin in the studio to analyze the week’s major political news, including accusations of misspent advertising funds in the Conservative Party’s 2006 federal election campaign.
Having covered the Canadian political scene for more than 25 years, Martin is as politically astute as he is savvy. He joined CPAC in 1996 and has covered leadership races, political conventions and federal elections, serving as PrimeTime Politics’ Hill correspondent daily and host of the show’s Friday edition. Martin began his career as a reporter for CBC Radio in Quebec City and also worked for seven years as national and international producer for CBC Radio’s flagship show, As It Happens.
