    The View Up Here & Mark Bourrie make the new government priority list

    in Politics

    November 4 is the day. The new government is sworn in. On one hand we have campaign promises. On the other we have obvious priorities. Do they intersect? How much stupidity will the Trudeau administration be committed to from all the senseless litigation courtesy of unconstitutional Harper legislation? There will be as many different priorities as people you ask. Expectations are a bitch. But a majority insulates against immediate demands. With 150 rookies in caucus, Cabinet will be an interesting selection process.

    Mark Bourrie (@MarkBourrie) is an award winning Canadian journalist, best selling author, historian and lecturer at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. His work has also appeared in many major magazines and newspapers. Mark has a BA in History from the University of Waterloo, a diploma in Public Policy and Administration from the University of Guelph, a Masters in Journalism from Carleton University and a Doctorate in Canadian media history from the University of Ottawa.

    Join us as Mark and the intrepid host (haha) discuss how priorities can be gleaned from a massive pile of problems left behind by the CPC gong show. Don't let us skip or omit anything. Call in and let us know!
