Also: Tories push emissions reduction targets to 2030

Conservative Party leader and PM Harper, NDP leader Layton, Liberal leader Ignatieff  and Bloc Quebecois leader Duceppe take part in the English leaders' debate with host  Paikin in Ottawa

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 OMNI studios to talk about the stories that matter. This week, Paul Wells reveals some of the emerging details surrounding the Maclean’s-Rogers leaders’ debate that three parties—all but the Liberals—have agreed to join. Cormac MacSweeney also asks Wells about the Tories’ newest carbon reductions targets, which aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.
