Tony explains his recent trip to Washington, D.C. and the role that Members of Parliament have to represent Canadian interests around the world. This trip even included a visit to the NASA Operations Centre! John Barlow, Conservative MP for Foothills, Alberta joins Tony Clement to discuss the Free The Beer campaign. The Supreme Court of Canada has now agreed to hear the Comeau Case, which if successful, would finally allow the free trade of goods – including beer – across provincial “borders” in Canada. To learn more about the campaign, visit: FreeTheBeer.net. And, Candice Bergen, Conservative House Leader and MP for Portage-Lisgar, Manitoba, joins Tony for an in-depth discussion of the challenges facing Canadian democracy in light of Justin Trudeau’s efforts to unilaterally change the Standing Orders of the House of Commons. Opposition parties are united in the belief that that Parliament belongs to all Canadians, and not any one government or Prime Minister.
