Private sector economists Avery Shenfeld and Carlos Leitao speak with host Martin Stringer about their meeting with the federal finance minister to discuss Canada’s economic outlook.
David Chartrand, president of the Manitoba Métis Federation, joins Martin in the studio to discuss a Supreme Court ruling on an historical Métis land dispute claim made in 1870.
Afterwards, Martin sits down with journalists Susan Lunn (CBC Radio) and Mark Kennedy (Postmedia News) to discuss predictions for the 2013 federal budget, scheduled for March 22nd.
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.
