The Week with Mark Sutcliffe - June 19, 2011

This Sunday, two guests join Mark Sutcliffe in studio for a comprehensive discussion of the week in politics. Viewers can join the discussion via phone calls, emails, and social media.
On the program this week:

Louise Elliott, Parliamentary correspondent for CBC Radio News
Author and public policy consultant Bob Plamondon

Tune in, call in and tweet in this Sunday to talk about:
Two strikes: The federal government intervenes very quickly in labour disputes at Air Canada and Canada Post. Was the government right to deploy back-to-work legislation or will its actions cause bigger problems in the long run?
NATO mission: Parliament votes to extend the military’s commitment in Libya by 3.5 months. How clear are Canada’s objectives in this campaign and could it last even longer than September?
Sobering Second Thought? : Conservative senators show signs of resistance to the prime minister’s plans to reform the upper chamber. How are the senators’ concerns likely to affect the government’s actions on this file?
NDP Convention: New Democrats gather in Vancouver for a national convention in the wake of their historic election gains last month. In which direction is the party going as it takes on a more powerful political role in national politics?
Anything Else: What are the national political stories that matter most to you this week?
