Maclean's on the Hill: An audio briefing on the week in politics

Also: Paul Wells on the Trudeau government's first 100 days


Each week, the Maclean’s Ottawa bureau sits down with Cormac MacSweeney to discuss the headlines of the week. This week, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visits a mourning La Loche, Sask., we speak with Maclean’s Alberta correspondent Jason Markusoff on the community’s response after a tragic shooting—and Canada’s broader neglect of remote, northern communities.

Also on the show: Health Minister Jane Philpott tries to calm fears about the Zika virus after four confirmed cases hit Canada. Environment Minister Catherine McKenna chats with us about her progress on developing a pan-Canadian climate strategy—and the government’s new regulatory rules for pipeline projects.

Finally, Maclean’s political editor Paul Wells shares his thoughts on the first 100 days of the Trudeau government and how cabinet plans to deliver on its ambitious agenda.
