The Week with Mark Sutcliffe

October 30, 2011

This Sunday, two political observers join guest host Martin Stringer for a wide-ranging discussion of the big news stories of the week. Viewers can also join in the discussion via phone calls, email and social media.

On the program this week:

Author and columnist Andrew Cohen, who teaches at Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication
Louise Elliott, parliamentary correspondent for CBC Radio news.

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

Registry Removal: Quebec objects to the federal government’s plans to scrap the long-gun registry. Is destroying data about firearms owners going a step too far?

Economic Outlook: The finance minister hints that it may take longer than planned to eliminate the deficit. Is the government doing what it should to balance the books?

Global Affairs: The Prime Minister pushes his international agenda at a commonwealth summit in Australia. But does the Commonwealth itself still have an important purpose?

NDP Leadership:Two new candidates enter the race to succeed Jack Layton. With eight New Democrats now contending for the job, how is the competition shaping up?

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