Episode #207: Hub Roundtable: Coming to you from adjacent cottages in the Laurentians
Welcome to Hub Podcasts, the audio version of the big ideas and in-depth conversations found at The Hub, Canada's daily news and information source for policy and politics.
Each Friday, you can listen to our Hub Roundtable featuring The Hub's editors analyzing the big issues of the week in Canada. Our Hub Dialogues feature The Hub's editor at large Sean Speer engaged in twice-weekly conversations with leading entrepreneurs, policymakers, scholars, and thinkers on the issues and challenges that will shape Canada's future. The Frum Dialogues feature the insight and wisdom of leading author, journalist, and thinker David Frum, who weighs in every second Friday on global and Canadian news events. The episodes are generously supported by The Ira Gluskin And Maxine Granovsky Gluskin Charitable Foundation.
This week’s Hub Dialogue roundtable discusses the appointment of "eminent Canadian" David Johnston to the position of special rapporteur looking into recent allegations of interference by the Chinese government in Canadian elections. Is he the right person for the job? Does he have a conflict of interest that should preclude him from taking it on? We also talk about the government's two controversial bills designed to regulate the internet and wonder if this legislation could have unintended consequences.
