This Sunday, Mark is joined by two guests to review the week in national politics. Viewers can join in via phone, email and social media. On the program this week:
Elizabeth Thompson, senior political writer for iPolitics.ca
Author and public policy consultant Bob Plamondon
Tune in, call in and tweet in on Sunday to talk about:
Economic Update: In the face of global turmoil, the finance minister makes adjustments to his plans for the economy. How sheltered does Canada remain from an economic storm?
Comeback Plans: Interim liberal leader Bob Rae lays out his party’s “road map to renewal”. Does it chart a new beginning or is it a road to nowhere?
Occupation’s End?: The Occupy Movement faces backlash in many Canadian cities. How likely are the protests to continue indefinitely?
NDP Leadership: Niki Ashton becomes the ninth and youngest candidate to enter the race to succeed Jack Layton. How tight is the competition?
Anything Else: What are the national political stories that matter most to you this week?
