As It Happens: Tuesday Edition

Tuesday, October 20th 2015

Part One

Margaret Trudeau
After the Liberals win an unexpected majority, we speak with the woman who's responsible for the man who will be Prime Minister: Justin Trudeau's mother, Margaret. 

Conservatives: Lisa Raitt
The Conservatives replace the NDP as the Official Opposition -- and former Transport Minister Lisa Raitt is one of a handful of former cabinet ministers who'll return to Parliament. 

St. Louis churches 
After a spate of fires at black churches across St. Louis, one pastor worries that something he calls "Ferguson Fatigue" may be the reason for apathy in the religious community. 

Part Two

NDP: Ruth Ellen Brosseau
The NDP is back in third place, losing fifty-one seats -- but in Quebec, Ruth Ellen Brosseau keeps her seat while so many around her have lost theirs. 

Liberals: Kent Hehr
For a Liberal majority to replace a Conservative majority, the party had to pick up seats in ridings considered Tory strongholds -- and our guest, the MP-elect in Calgary Centre, did just that. 

Part Three

Kunduz: Médécins Sans Frontières
It's been more than two weeks since a U.S. airstrike destroyed a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan, killing at least 22 people. And tonight, the organization's International President shares her frustration with the lack of answers on what happened and why. 

Schizophrenia study
A new study in the United States is casting doubt on the accepted treatment for schizophrenia.

Liberals: Hunter Tootoo
Hunter Tootoo is the Inuit MP who unseated former Conservative Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq last night in Nunavut.
