Martin Stringer is joined by a panel of MPs and by his journalist guests: Bob Fife (The Globe & Mail) and Marie-Danielle Smith (National Post). Among this week’s subjects: President Trump’s decision to impose tariffs against Canadian steel and aluminium imports, and Canada’s countermeasures. And the Trudeau government’s plan to pay $4.5 billion buy out Kinder Morgan’s assets to ensure the construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline. Both subjects dominated all else this week in federal politics.
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.
