PrimeTime Politics Weekend - December 15, 2006

Host Martin Stringer speaks with NDP leader Jack Layton about his request to have Maher Arar removed from the United States terrorist watchlist. Mr. Arar is a Canadian citizen who was detained in the United States and then deported to a Syrian prison on suspicion of terrorist involvement.

Martin then sits down with a panel of MPs to look back on developments from the fall sitting of Parliament. The MPs are Richard Nadeau (Bloc Québécois), Dave Batters (Conservative), David McGuinty (Liberal), and Paul Dewar (NDP).

Also on the program, journalists Elizabeth Thompson and Susan Lunn comment on major political news stories, including speculation about a spring 2007 election.
