Join Martin Stringer and his journalist guests: Louise Elliott, parliamentary reporter with CBC Radio, and John Geddes, Ottawa bureau chief for Maclean’s. They’ll discuss:
1. The Harper government’s second budget implementation bill
2. Accusations of improper election campaign spending by intergovernmental affairs Minister Peter Penashue
3. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty’s resignation and the federal Liberal leadership race
Also, Martin is joined by a panel of MPs to discuss the week’s events in federal politics.
Having covered the Canadian political scene for more than 25 years, Martin is as politically astute as he is savvy.

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.
