Ontario PC Leadership Debate and The Agenda's Week
The Agenda presents a debate between PC leadership candidates, Christine Elliott and Patrick Brown. Then, The Agenda brings you the Week in Review.
Outrage and Offence
It seems these days people are more inclined to voice their outrage, both online and in real life. Is this a legacy of social media? How does the so-called "call out" culture encourage or limit conversation.
The Question of Privilege
Whether or not a person experiences "privilege" can affect their political and personal viewpoint. The Agenda examines what role the question of privilege has in our politically correct society.
The Divide on Political Correctness
This week, The Agenda takes a look at the state of political correctness. Tonight, is there a growing divide among liberal thinkers on political correctness? Are "social justice warriors" changing ideas about race and gender or are they simply policing speech?
New Chief, New Start? And, Science Fact or Science Fiction?
Journalist Desmond Cole talks about the many incidents of racial profiling he has encountered and discusses the future of policing under Toronto's new chief. Then, The Agenda looks into what is fact-based and what is faulty science on the Internet and how to curtail the spread of misinformation when it comes to health and well-being. And a look at the dangers of Roundup, a pesticide with known health risks.
Mohamed Fahmy and The Agenda's Week in Review
Mohamed Fahmy joins The Agenda from Cairo, where he is still trying to clear his name after his imprisonment there. Then, from Ontario's budget to checking in on Russia and Canadian parliamentary pitfalls, The Agenda's week in review.
Ontario Budget Day 2015
Finance Minister Charles Sousa discusses Ontario's fiscal future on the day of the province's budget announcement. Then, opposition critics weigh in on the numbers. Finally, a panel of experts will analyze what the budget means for Ontarians.
Parliamentary Practices and Pitfalls
Two criticisms of Canada's parliamentary practice: First, former Conservative and current Independent MP Brent Rathgeber discusses the failings of Canada's parliament. Then, journalist Michael Harris puts Stephen Harper in the hot seat as the topic of his book, "Party of One."
Two high profile Ontarians reveal secrets from their pasts. Peter O'Brian, filmmaker and chair of TVO's board talks about the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of a school teacher in England. And, former cabinet minister Marilyn Churley talks about her book "Shameless," and her search for the son gave up for adoption at age 19.
Focus on Russia
The Agenda shines a light on Russia first with a look at the dying days of the Soviet Union with Gelber Prize-winning author of 'The Last Empire,' Serhii Plokhy, then a discussion about how Vladimir Putin seems to be employing the ancient military strategy of 'maskirovka' to achieve Russia's goals and finally, Peter Pomerantsev on Russia's manipulative media tactics.
