Power & Politics with Evan Solomon: about the show
With a regular cast of star panelists and the ever-unfolding drama of the Canadian political scene, Power & Politics with Evan Solomon is smart and accessible, the must-see political affairs program for Canadians everywhere.
In addition to hosting CBC’s national political newscast, Solomon interviews key newsmakers, political pundits, CBC News contributors and other Canadians who debate the big issues, from the budget to the war in Afghanistan to the sensations and the scandals of the day.
The CBC News team plays a key role on the show, providing live reports from Parliament Hill, and covering all the important aspects of Canadian government. Award-winning journalists examine political happenings, election races, and policy fights from all over the country – made relevant to the average viewer as well as the political junkie.
Power & Politics will also broaden its reach across the online world through the new political website cbc.ca/politics: a new home base for all things political. All the news of the day from Parliament Hill and legislatures from across the country can be found here; stories at the top of the news and many other stories affecting Canadians flying just below the radar. Fronting the new online approach is Kady O’Malley, the CBC’s new resident blogger who will be driving coverage online in her tenacious freewheeling style.
