Martin Stringer is joined by a panel of MPs and by journalists guests Louise Elliott (CBC Radio) and Mark Kennedy (Ottawa Citizen). They discuss: the death of Senate Speaker Pierre Claude Nolin, this week’s federal budget and the Mike Duffy Trial. We also have special coverage of the meeting of the Arctic Council, in Iqaluit, and a tribute to the late Senator Pierre-Claude Nolin.
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.
