PrimeTime Politics Weekend - November 10, 2006


Host Martin Stringer reviews the week’s headlines, including stricter drug-impaired driving legislation introduced by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Martin sits down with a panel of MPs to analyze power struggles between parties over the Canadian political agenda. The panellists are Steven Blaney (Conservative), David McGuinty (Liberal), Richard Nadeau (Bloc Québécois), and Pat Martin (NDP). Duff Conacher (co-ordinator at Democracy Watch) joins Martin in the studio to discuss a lawsuit launched against the federal government after its decision to tax income trusts.

Martin speaks with Veterans Affairs Minister Greg Thompson about implementation delays in the Veterans Independence Program. Journalists Paul Samyn, Louise Elliott, and Stephen Maher join Martin for a panel discussion of the week’s political news.

Later, footage is shown from an interview between Martin and Sam Daley-Harris (organizer of the Halifax Summit on Micro-Credit). Mr. Harris defines micro-credit and outlines the summit’s objectives.
