Backbenchers and Bankers

From Brad Trost to Mark Carney - who's calling the shots?

After Brad Trost's bombshell announcement that he wants the abortion debate re-opened, the question being is asked is whether Harper's backbenchers are starting to break ranks with the Prime Minister.  And if so, is it a healthy sign for our democracy when MPs articulate their real beliefs, rather than follow their leader's direction?

Plus, should that photo op of Harper, Flaherty and Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney be raising concerns about the  impartiality of our nation's central bank?  Our panel weighs in.
