Martin Stringer is joined by a panel of MPs and his journalist guests: Louise Elliott (CBC Radio) & Tim Harper (Toronto Star). Among this week’s subjects: Peter MacKay’s announcement that he will not run in the fall election, the government’s announcement concerning possible changes to the Canada Pension Plan, and the NDP’s problems with the issue of satellite offices.
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.
