Martin Stringer speaks with the Canadian president of the United Steelworkers Union, Ken Neumann, about the threat of U.S. tarifs on Canadian steel and aluminium. Martin is also joined by a panel of MPs and journalist guests: Bob Fife (The Globe & Mail) and Althia Raj (HuffPost Canada). Among the topics: US tarifs, this week’s federal budget, the ongoing controversy over the prime minister’s India trip, and the crisis within the Bloc Québécois.
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.
