Tune in, call in and tweet in this Sunday to talk about:
The Economy: Amid fears of another global recession, how is Canada’s economy doing? Is the government taking the right approach to dealing with the economy?
G8 Summit Documents: The NDP unearth new documents about the President of the Treasury Board Tony Clement and the G8 Legacy Fund. Did the minister break accountability and transparency rules?
Provincial Elections: With three provincial elections happening in Canada next week, federal officials have been accused wading into provincial campaigns. Should federal officials be prevented from getting involved in provincial campaigns?
What are the most pressing provincial elections issues?
The Use of VIP Jets: It was revealed this week that Defence Minister Peter MacKay spent close to $3 million on the use of VIP jets. Should a federal minister be spending so much on VIP flights?
