The Week with Mark Sutcliffe - September 16, 2012


This Sunday, Mark welcomes two veteran journalists to discuss the week in national politics. Viewers are also welcome to contribute their thoughts about the big stories of the week.

On the program:

* Susan Riley, Columnist for the Ottawa Citizen
* Lawrence Martin, Columnist for The Globe and Mail

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

MIDDLE EAST TURMOIL: Anti-American protests escalate. The United States sends troops, increases security, after Americans are killed, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. Meanwhile Canada cuts diplomatic ties with Iran. Was that the right move? And how should Canada and the United States respond to the deadly violence?

QUEBEC-FEDERAL RELATIONS: Canada's political landscape shifted when the Parti Québécois won a minority government in Quebec. With MPs about to return to the House of Commons, how will the outcome of this provincial election drive the national agenda?

LIBERAL LEADERSHIP: The rules for the race are set. Now everyone is waiting for candidates to step forward. Will Quebec MP Justin Trudeau run? Who would be the best Liberal leader to face today's challenging national and international issues?

RESIDENCY FRAUD CRACKDOWN: The Harper government is revoking the citizenship of up to 3,100 people. It is also investigating thousands more in the event they lied to qualify for citizenship. Is Canada cracking down on fraud and tightening immigration rules enough? Or too much?

GHOST OF PLANES PAST: A plan to revive the Avro Arrow lost altitude this week. Opponents say it would be too expensive to upgrade. But could this be a made-in-Canada solution to the F-35 fighter jet controversy?

ANYTHING ELSE: What are the national political stories that matter most to you this week?
