This week on The House, Evan Solomon talks with the Parliamentary Budget Officer, Kevin Page, about the end of his term, and his relationship with the federal government. Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi has been a critic of the governments promotion of the Keystone XL pipeline, he stops by to tell us why. Then, the Executive Director of the Sierra Club of Canada, John Bennett, tells us why civil disobedience may be an option for opposing any new pipeline project, and Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver gives us some government reaction to both of them. Finally, Toronto Star reporter Tonda McCharles and National Post columnist John Ivison look at Parliament's return.
