Each week, the Maclean’s Ottawa bureau sits down with Cormac MacSweeney to discuss the headlines of the week. This week, the bureau talks about veterans affairs, proportional representation, Syrian refugees and the Liberal Party’s investigation of misconduct allegations. Rebecca Jesseman with the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse talks the politics of pot in wake of a Supreme Court ruling on Marijuana. Senators Grant Mitchell and Bob Runciman discuss both the Auditor General Michael Ferguson’s report into Senate expenses and broader Senate reform. And the Maclean’s panel discusses the Senate, the need to audit MP expenses and the return of BQ Leader Gilles Duceppe.
