This week on a special edition of The House, Evan Solomon takes a closer look at the unfolding Senate controversy, and the attempt to suspend three Senators without pay. First, Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau shares his thoughts about whether Senators Patrick Brazeau, Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin should be suspended, and what he believes the Prime Minister should do to address the situation.
Then, we go inside the Red Chamber with Conservative Senator, and former leader of the government in the Senate, Marjory LeBreton, about the allegations made against her this week. We also speak to another Conservative Senator, and former party president, Don Plett, about why he plans to go against his leadership's wishes, and vote against suspending the three Senators.
What impact will the events of this week and the ongoing Senate expenses scandal have on voters? Does this week have the potential to be a turning point? Nanos Research president Nik Nanos joins us to look at the numbers.
Finally, CBC Senior political correspondent Terry Milewski and Radio-Canada bureau chief Emmanuelle Latraverse join us to discuss where the story goes next.
