Mid-week podcast: Nuclear Summit and remembering Jean Lapierre
On The House mid-week podcast, with Justin Trudeau about to head to Washington, D.C., for the Nuclear Security Summit, we look at the issues that will be on the table with Joan Rohlfing, the president of the Nuclear Threat Initiative.
Leaders from more than 50 countries will meet Thursday and Friday in the U.S. capital to participate in the conference dedicated to ensuring the most devastating weapons remain out of the reach of would-be attackers.
Then, we look back at the unique political and journalistic career of Jean Lapierre. The former MP and cabinet minister turned go-to political commentator died in a plane crash this week. We speak to the former host of Les Coulisses du Pouvoir, Daniel Lessard, about the void left by Lapierre's death.
