Maclean’s on the Hill: Eve Adams, measles and the Canadian flag

Still trying to make sense of this week in politics? Listen here.



Each week, the Maclean’s politics team and Rogers radio’s Cormac MacSweeney sit down to hash out the week’s news in Ottawa. This week, we talk to Liberal MP John McCallum about his new caucus colleague, Eve Adams; we ask Canada’s chief public health officer about measles outbreaks and the anti-vaxxer movement; and we look back at the creation of the Canadian flag with one of the men who helped design it.

Maclean’s on the Hill: Eve Adams, measles and the Canadian flag

  1. Why take on Joe Oliver? It seems crazy.

    I’m beginning to think that perhaps Joe has an achilles heel, a dark secret if you will, that is known to Dimitri Soudas. If “Adams and Eve” can win the nomination, the whispering starts and either Joe steps aside or they release the story and bring him down.

    You have to admit, taking on Oliver seems an odd choice…. or does it?

  2. While the MSM are going all ape over Eve Adams and Justine Trudeau, Harper looses a three key political figures in the PMO in one week, and then Harper hires a Canadian Tire manager to run the PMO in the next election, Wow, politics is starting to turn into Entertainment Tonight, that’s why I don’t take the MSM as serious as I used to.

  3. I guess the MSM haven’t been too interested in looking at the polling this week.

  4. The MSM got a serious hard on for Trudeau and love looking at car crashes, and especially would love to see Trudeau go down big time, you know the old story, we told you so. This floor crossing seems to bother the MSM more than it does the voters, all inside the bubble. If it wasn’t for Trudeau, most of our news outlets and talking heads would be out of business, like sun news.

  5. It’s not about being a good politician in Harpers cabinet, experience means nothing to Harper, it’s all about loyalty and nothing else. I can’t believe that this media can trash all day long and then turn on the sweet charm for Harper. Jason Kenny is an idiot like these talking heads.
