Martin Stringer speaks with Chief Marcia Brown Martel and Crown-Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett about compensation for Indigenous people caught in the “Sixties Scoop” and placed in non-Indigenous foster homes.
He’s also is joined by a panel of MPs and journalist guests Bob Fife (The Globe and Mail) and Kristy Kirkup (The Canadian Press). Among this week’s subjects: the First Ministers’ Meeting, legalizing marijuana, tax changes, Jagmeet Singh’s first week as NDP leader, and the cancellation of the Energy East pipeline project.
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.
