Each week, the Maclean’s Ottawa bureau sits down with Cormac MacSweeney to discuss the headlines of the week. This week, Cormac Mac Sweeney speaks with Maj.-Gen. Chris Whitecross about the Canadian Armed Forces’ response to a damning external report about military sexual misconduct. Nick Köhler talks about the short pause in suspended senator Mike Duffy’s criminal trial. University of Waterloo political science professor Emmett Macfarlane muses about the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Marshall Rothstein—and the process to replace him. And the Maclean’s panel discusses military misconduct, the latest poll numbers, and the Alberta election.
