April 6, 2014

Honourable John Baird

If it felt a little like victory on the GST set this week all that shiny gold probably had something to do with it. Not only did we have Olympic gold medal-winning curler Jennifer Jones here to show off her bling, but Sochi-dominating freestyle mogul skier Alex Bilodeau as well.

Tim Leiweke, the President and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, and Masia Ujiri, the general manager for the Toronto Raptors, haven't yet secured ultimate victories for the teams they manage, but when they took turns in the red chair they explained how things are going in the right direction for Toronto pro sports teams. Well, except for the Leafs. There's still some work to go there.

We also dove deep into #CDNPoli this week. The Honourable John Baird, the Foreign Minister of Canada, explained that he wasn't going after Stephen Harper's job. Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau, the Liberal Party of Canada leader, made it clear it doesn't matter to him too much if you don't like him.

On top of all this we also had David Douglas, the filmmaker behind Island of Lemurs: Madagascar, to talk about the fascinating primates.
