This week on The House, Evan Solomon looks back at an eventful week on Parliament Hill.
First, the leader of the Official Opposition, Tom Mulcair, discusses the aftermath of the KPMG report into the F-35s. What does the leader of the NDP have to stay about the 45.8 billion dollar price tag. He also discusses the CNOOC-Nexen deal, and the Conservatives' claims that the NDP wants to impose a carbon tax.
Then, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says now is not the time to enhance the Canada Pension Plan. Find out why. Plus, we ask Flaherty how the U.S. fiscal cliff could affect Canada, and what are some of the challenges he's facing when it comes to balancing next year's budget.
It's been a busy sitting of Parliament for Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae. As his party gets ready to choose a new leader, where do the Liberals stand on such issues as the F35's and the approval of two major takeovers?
She might be her party's only representative in the House of Commons, but Green Party leader Elizabeth May still managed to make her voice heard. How does she plan to work with the other opposition parties in the future?
We also hear from the U.S. Ambassador to Canada David Jacobson, in the aftermath of the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
