Maclean’s on the Hill: #abvote, Brian Mulroney, Khadr

Also: Tories prevail in the United Kingdom


Each week, the Maclean’s Ottawa bureau sits down with Cormac MacSweeney to discuss the headlines of the week. This week features an election debrief with Alberta Progressive Conservative campaign organizer Alan Hallman, and Paul Wells in conversation with former prime minister Brian Mulroney. Maclean’s senior writer Michael Friscolanti reports on an Alberta court’s decision to grant Omar Khadr bail. David MacDonald of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives crunches the numbers on the latest Liberal pitch to the middle class. And the Maclean’s politics panel chats about the death of a conservative dynasty in Alberta, the re-election of a Conservative government in the U.K., and the latest colourful emails to emerge at Mike Duffy’s criminal trial.
