Host Martin Stringer reviews the week’s headlines.

A panel of MPs join Martin in the studio to discuss the $3.4 billion purchase of Boeing C-17 heavy-lift aircraft proposed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government. The MPs also debate the effectiveness of the government’s environmental agenda. The panellists are Brian Jean (Conservative), Karen Redman (Liberal), Vivian Barbot (Bloc Québécois), and Jean Crowder (NDP).

Later, Martin sits down with journalists Susan Lunn and Bill Curry to analyse major political news stories, including the dismissal of Environment Commissioner Johanne Gélinas by Auditor General Sheila Fraser.
