CPAC’s Martin Stringer sits in for Mark Sutcliffe to hear the views of Canadians on relief efforts following the massive earthquake in Haiti, as well as Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s decision to prorogue Parliament and Mr. Harper’s recent cabinet shuffle.
Martin is joined in the studio by journalists David Akin (Canwest News Service) and Mia Rabson (Winnipeg Free Press) to discuss these issues in more detail. The panellists also comment on the role of Western Canada within a broader national context. Later, CPAC viewers call in to give their perspectives on issues raised over the course of the program.
A broadcaster, writer and entrepreneur, Mark joined CPAC in the Fall of 2009 to host The Week – a Sunday morning, national phone-in on the week in politics. He also hosts The Chat Room weekday mornings on 580 CFRA in Ottawa, writes two weekly columns in the Ottawa Citizen and is the CEO of Great River Media. A marathon runner and volunteer, Mark is also the founder of iRun magazine and the author of Why I Run and was formerly Executive Editor of the Citizen.
