PrimeTime Politics Weekend - December 16, 2011


This week, join Martin Stringer and his journalists guests: Bill Curry, reporter for The Globe & Mail, Louise Elliott, Parliamentary Reporter for CBC Radio, and John Geddes, Ottawa Bureau Chief for Maclean's magazine.

They'll take a special, year-end look at the fall session of the 41st Parliament of Canada.

What was achieved in this first full session of the Harper majority government ?
What were some of the hi-lights? Some of the disappointments?
Which political figures inspired? Who performed poorly?
What were the big issues or events that made the news, and which important issues were missed?
And what are some of the pieces of unfinished business to look for when Parliament returns at the end of January?

Join our panel for their thoughts and insights!
