The Week with Mark Sutcliffe - March 7, 2010

Host Mark Sutcliffe and his guests hear the views of Canadians on political developments as Parliament resumes after a three-month-long prorogation. Topics of discussion include the government’s lengthy Speech from the Throne, the federal budget, and the alleged torture of detainees transferred from Canadian forces to Afghan authorities.

Journalist Don Martin joins Mark in the studio to comment on key provisions in the throne speech and federal budget, including spending controls and public-sector wage freezes.

After taking calls from CPAC viewers, Mark sits down with Andrew Cohen (the president of the Historica–Dominion Institute) to discuss a short-lived debate about placing gender-neutral language into the national anthem. He also comments on measures in the budget to promote the preservation of Canadian history.
