Each week, the Maclean’s Ottawa bureau sits down to discuss the stories behind the week’s stories in our politics podcast, On The Hill.
They also gather in the City TV studios to talk about the stories that matter. This week, bureau chief John Geddes, senior writer Laura Payton, joins Rogers Radio’s Cormac MacSweeney to talk about the refugee crisis that gripped Canada’s federal election campaign—and, as Labour Day comes and goes, how much that issue will continue to play on the hustings at the expense of economic and pocketbook issues that typically dominate federal campaigns.
