Summer break is over and we return with a vengeance. The revelations about malfeasance by the Harper junta never stop. Let's look at a few items with the laser guidance from our guest Amy MacPherson, shall we?

- CSEC and their programs like "Landmark" continue to alert Canadians about their over-reach. Their unwarranted, indiscriminate spying continues unabated.

- As the Duffy trial nears, it's time to talk about Nigel Wright's true purpose in the PMO. The redirection and misguidance of the Canada Pension Plan, for what else but corporate advantage.

- Fracking will not go away any time soon. The shale along the Lake Huron coast is a prime target in Ontario. But it is also targeted by another industry, nuclear power. To deposit nuclear waste. What happens when these two get together? Who is really involved and how?

Liberal MP Joyce Murray has proposed a Private Members Bill C-622 that would go a long way to curbing the ever-expanding powers of CSEC. It is well written and inclusive. We will discuss it  Hardly any attention has been paid by the so-called media in Canada to the profound changes made to the CPP on Emperor's watch. It has been irrevocably altered into something resembling a hedge fund, set up by his former Chief of Staff from Onyx, Nigel Wright. There are those that think his involvement in Duffygate was merely the opportunity to eject him from the Hill so he could return to his true calling. Profiteering. Ontarians aren't the only ones at risk in this dark marriage of convenience of Bruce Power and Dundee Energy Limited. Forty million people on both sides of the border may be at risk from this powerplay, orchestrated by a stunningly small circle of familiar players.

Amy MacPherson has investigated these matters to a severe degree and what she has found is not good news. And she has paid a steep price personally. Amy will tell us why it's all our battle.
