PrimeTime Politics Weekend - October 26, 2012

Host Martin Stringer hears reactions to UN rapporteur Richard Falk’s support for an international consumer boycott of companies that have dealings with so-called "Israeli settlements." MPs Richard Adler (Conservative), Paul Dewar (NDP), and John McCallum (Liberal) comment on this issue and on other political developments, including the government’s omnibus budget bill.

Later on the program, journalists Susan Lunn and Mark Kennedy join Martin in the studio for further discussion about the week in federal politics, including reactions to the Auditor General’s most recent report and a Supreme Court ruling upholding the 2011 federal election results in the riding of Etobicoke Centre, Ont.
