The Week with Mark Sutcliffe

September 25, 2011

This Sunday, Mark Sutcliffe welcomes two guests to the studio to discuss the big political stories of the week. As always, viewers are welcome to join in via phone calls, emails, and social media.
On the program this week:

John Ibbitson, Ottawa Bureau Chief of the Globe and Mail
Jennifer Ditchburn, Parliamentary correspondent for the Canadian Press

Tune in, call in and tweet in this Sunday to talk about:
Omnibus Bill: The government tables a sweeping “tough on crime” bill. Is the legislation also “smart on crime”? And how much will it cost?

Palestinian Bid: Canada sides with the U.S and Israel in opposing the Palestinian bid for statehood at the UN. What are the implications for this country’s stance on Middle East politics?

Visiting Dignitary: The British Prime Minister visits Ottawa and addresses a joint session of parliament. How will David Cameron’s warnings about the dire state of the global economy resonate?

NDP Candidates: While some NDP MPs decline to run, speculation continues that others will enter the party’s leadership race. How is that race shaping up?

Anything Else: What are the national political stories that matter most to you this week?
