Each week, we’ll bring you a panel discussion with Canada’s leading journalists, columnists, politicos, and change makers discussing what’s happening in the newsphere.

This week, we’re joined by Washington Post contributing columnist David Moscrop & economist and National Post columnist Rupa Subramanya to discuss what’s being mostly ignored by the mainstream press. Another minority government looks to be all but certain, with it, will electoral reform make a comeback? With the ascendency of the PPC, has the culture war arrived in Canada? Why are the major parties ignoring the economic plight of Canadians? We debate it all and more on this week’s Counterpoint.
