Each week, the Maclean’s Ottawa bureau sits down with Cormac MacSweeney to discuss the headlines of the week. This week, former diplomat Colin Robertson briefs us on the expectations weighing on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his first set of international meetings, and Ottawa bureau chief John Geddes speaks to John McCallum, Canada’s new minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, about whether the Liberals can reach their goal of resettling 25,000 Syrian refugees by Dec. 31. Plus, Maclean’s senior writer Laura Payton talks to a fashion blogger about Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau’s sense of style, and our Maclean’s panel looks ahead to Trudeau’s meeting with the premiers later this month.
