This week, join Martin Stringer for a special edition of Primetime Politics Weekend. The fall sitting of Parliament has come to an end, and MPs are now back in their ridings for the holiday season. Join Martin and his journalist guests: David Akin, National Bureau Chief for Sun Media, Louise Elliott, reporter with CBC Radio, and John Geddes, Ottawa Bureau Chief for Maclean’s magazine. They’ll discuss the fall sitting of Parliament, as well as what to expect in federal politics in the New Year.
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.
