The Week with Mark Sutcliffe - October 16, 2011

Mark Sutcliffe welcomes two members of the Canadian Parliamentary Press Gallery to discuss the top national political stories of the past week. He also welcomes viewer calls, emails, and tweets.

On the program this week:

John Geddes, Ottawa Bureau Chief for Maclean’s magazine
Louise Elliott, Parliamentary Correspondent for CBC Radio News

Tune in, call in and tweet in this Sunday to talk about:

Labour Pains: The federal government intervenes in the dispute between Air Canada and its flight attendants. Was the move necessary to protect the economy or did it violate workers’ rights?
Layton's Successor: NDP deputy leader Thomas Mulcair officially kicks off his leadership bid. How does Mulcair’s candidacy affect the race for the party’s top job?
Cautious Voters: Incumbents triumph in a series of provincial elections this month. What does this trend say about the state of Canadian politics?
Occupy Canada?: The “Occupy Wall Street” protests move north this weekend with demonstrations planned in a number of Canadian cities: Will the movement have resonance in this country?
Anything Else: What are the national political stories that matter most to you this week?
