Every Wednesday, political insiders Evan Solomon and John Geddes unpack Parliament Hill and beyond in Maclean’s weekly Facebook Live show Crosstalk, beaming our deep-dive discussions of politics and policy to your device, no matter where you are. It’s our smart must-watch morning briefing on the week’s biggest topics—and you can join in the conversation with comments and questions of your own, live!
Here’s the big item on the agenda this week:
THE TRUMP ERA BEGINS IN CANADA
A federal cabinet retreat in Calgary has already featured a visit from Stephen Schwarzman, a senior business advisor to the freshly inaugurated President Donald Trump. But Justin Trudeau’s team also got more news from our southern neighbours when the Trump White House announced it would conditionally approve the Keystone XL pipeline, which had been scuppered under Barack Obama. What do all these moves mean, for a new era in U.S.-Canada relations?
It’s a big question with plenty of tendrils and signals already, and Evan and John will be discussing and debating it and more—including any and all questions you bring to the table! Ask yours in the comments section or on the Facebook page during the show to join in the conversation, and remember to subscribe to our Facebook page and tune in every Wednesday, with this week’s Crosstalk airing at 10 am ET.
