Host Mark Sutcliffe and his guests discuss the government’s reaction to a Supreme Court ruling on Omar Khadr. Mr. Khadr, a Canadian citizen, has been incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay since 2002 on suspicion of terrorist involvement. Additional topics of discussion include the government’s decision to cancel the March and April breaks in the House of Common and criticisms made by Environment Minister Jim Prentice about Quebec’s climate change plan.
Mark first sits down with Globe and Mail journalist John Ibbitson to analyze Senate and child care reform proposals put forward by the Liberal Party. Later, Telegraph columnist Brian Jones joins the discussion by phone.
Over the course of the program, CPAC viewers call in to share their thoughts on the week’s major political headlines.
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.
