The Week with Mark Sutcliffe - November 20, 2011

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:

John Ibbitson, Parliamentary Bureau Chief, The Globe and Mail
Ottawa Citizen Columnist Susan Riley

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

New RCMP Boss: The government appoints one-time street cop Bob Paulson to head the national police force. As the force struggles with host of issues including accusations of systemic sexual harassment is Paulson the right choice for rebuilding the force?

New Markets in Asia: In the wake of the us decision to delay the Keystone XL pipeline the government is eyeing markets in Asia for energy exports. Is this a good trade direction for Canada?

Twitter Tirade?: NDP MP Pat Martin was criticized this week for a profanity-laden outburst in response to what he calls the government's limiting of debate on the budget bill. In this age of social media was the MP out of line?

The Right To Die: This week an expert panel called on the federal government to legalize assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia. Should the government heed the panel's advice?
