Each week, the Maclean’s politics team and Cormac MacSweeney sit down to hash out the week’s news in Ottawa. Expect incisive analysis and commentary, as well as interviews with the biggest newsmakers of the last seven days. This week, we look back on the life of Jim Flaherty. John Geddes sits down with David McLaughlin, a former chief of staff to Flaherty, Paul Wells talks to one of Flaherty’s former cabinet colleagues, Jason Kenney, and Cormac discusses Flaherty’s economic legacy with RBC economist Craig Wright. Meanwhile, Aaron Wherry interviews Alison Loat, author of Tragedy in the Commons, a new book about the secret and not-so-secret lives of MPs.
