Martin Stringer is joined by his panel of MPs and by journalists Kady O’Malley (iPolitics) and Althia Raj (HuffPost Canada). Among the this week’s topics: the government’s election legislation, the latest on legalizing marijuana, reports of a Canadian proposal to the U.S. government concerning the border and asylum seekers, and the NDP’s expulsion of MP Erin Weir from the caucus after a sexual harassment investigation.
Having covered the Canadian political scene for more than 25 years, Martin is as politically astute as he is savvy. He joined CPAC in 1996 and has covered leadership races, political conventions and federal elections, serving as PrimeTime Politics’ Hill correspondent daily and host of the show’s Friday edition. Martin began his career as a reporter for CBC Radio in Quebec City and also worked for seven years as national and international producer for CBC Radio’s flagship show, As It Happens.
