PrimeTime Politics Weekend - June 8, 2012

This week, join Martin Stringer and his journalist guests: Louise Elliott, Parliamentary Reporter for CBC Radio, and John Geddes, Ottawa Bureau Chief for Maclean's magazine. They'll discuss:

The Omnibus Budget Implementation Bill:
• We look at the latest developments, as the House of Commons prepares for a marathon voting session on opposition ammendments to the government's massive bill.
The Government's Agenda:
• What remains of the government's priority items and legislation?
Dean Del Mastro & Elections Canada:
This week it was revealed that Del Mastro, the Prime Minister's Parliamentary Secretary and the government's staunchest defender on issues of electoral fraud is himself being investigated by Elections Canada for alleged mis-spending during the 2008 election.
- What should we make of the whole affair?

Martin also speaks with a panel of MPs about the countdown to passage of Bill C38, the Budget Implementation Bill.
