The race to lead Ontario
Tomorrow will mark the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington. How did the events of September 11, 2001, affect the relationship between Canada its
neighbour to the south? Guest-host Susan Lunn asks former U.S. Secretary
of Homeland Security Tom Ridge. He says both countries' economic and security interests meet at the border... And the balance between those sometimes competing interests isn't always easy to achieve.
Listen to the entire show here:
Over the next couple of months, seven Canadian provinces or territories will be
heading to the polls. Who are the major players and what are the major issues?
We begin our overview of provincial contests with a closer look at the race in Ontario. Dalton McGuinty is trying to win a third term as premier... And he's using a familiar soundbite. Can Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak or the NDP's Andrea Horwath be successful on their first try? Susan asks the CBC's Queen's Park
reporter Mike Crawley.
NDP sets leadership rules
The NDP will choose Jack Layton's successor at a convention in Toronto on March
24. What kind of race can we expect? We ask party treasurer Rebecca Blaikie.
Then, the CBC's Kady O'Malley explains what she expects from the race that will officially begin next week.
Courting the "Ethnic Media"
The Prime Minister's new Director of Communications, Angelo Persichilli, is supposed to contribute to the government efforts to court Canada's various so-called "ethnic media." Why are the Conservatives putting so much effort towards those particular media outlets? The CBC's Louise Elliott explored that question.
