Maclean's on the Hill: Throne Speech edition

On our politics podcast this week: Jean Chrétien reacts to the Throne Speech, and we speak to House Leader Dominic LeBlanc


Each week, the Maclean’s Ottawa bureau sits down with Cormac MacSweeney to discuss the headlines of the week. This week, former prime minister Jean Chrétien reacts to Justin Trudeau’s first Throne Speech, and Maclean’s bureau chief John Geddes speaks to Liberal House Leader Dominic LeBlanc about how the Commons will be run. Plus, former Speaker Andrew Scheer discusses the challenges new House Speaker Geoff Regan may face, and Maclean’s associate editor Aaron Wherry talks to senior writer Laura Payton about her time at the Paris climate change conference. Our podcast concludes with the bureau’s weekly panel discussion about the Liberals’ unsurprising Throne Speech.
