Jason Kenney dismisses further Temporary Foreign Worker changes


This week on The House, Employment and Social Development Minister Jason Kenney meets with his provincial counterparts and gets an earful on the reforms to the Temporary Foreign Worker program. Guest-host Terry Milewski asks the Minister if he's prepared to compromise on any of the changes. Plus Jody Carr, New Brunswick Minister of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour, joins us with his take on the meeting.

Western Premiers are on a mission. They want to get rid of inter-provincial trade barriers. What makes them think they can succeed where others have failed? We ask Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall. He also tells whether he thinks Prime Minister Stephen Harper should fill the growing number of vacant seats in the Senate. 

Could the government's prostitution bill withstand a constitutional challenge? That question was at the heart of several exchanges this week on Parliament Hill. Members of the justice committee heard from several witnesses about the legislation. One of them, Elin Sigurdson from Vancouver's Pivot Legal Society, joins us with her take.

Finally, our In House panelists, Emmanuelle Latraverse and Tonda McCharles, are here with their take on this week's biggest political stories.
