The Week with Mark Sutcliffe

October 23, 2011

This Sunday, two political observers join Mark for a discussion about the big national stories of the week. Viewers can join in the discussion through calls, emails, and tweets.

On the program this week:
John Ibbitson, Ottawa Bureau Chief for the Globe and Mail
Elizabeth Thompson, Senior Political Writer for iNews.ca

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

New Era in Libya: Moammar Gadhafi’s violent death marks the indisputable end of his regime. Does the dictator’s demise put to rest any doubts about Canada’s involvement in the NATO mission in Libya?

Regional Imbalances?: Shipbuilding contracts and new house of commons seats pit provinces against each other. Is the federal government playing favorites?

Judicial Oversight: A parliamentary committee grills two new supreme court nominees. Did the government pick the best candidates for the job?

Protectionist Plans?: The American ambassador to Canada says the “buy American” provisions are ultimately good for Canada: Does he have a point?
