4th Reading

FOURTH READING is about to launch its new season with an exclusive interview with Finance Minister Floyd Laughren. Host Steve Paikin interviewed the Minister at the Legislature about the government's legislative and political agenda for year four, including whether the NDP can turn around its poor public image. Laughren makes some candid comments about the political price his party is paying for trying to keep the deficit below slob. We'll also be talking to the Tories and Liberals about their strategies for the new session. Our panel of insiders - Ian Scott, Sally Barnes and Janet Solberg, will tackle other issues cropping up at Queen's Park as well, including the fight between Quebec and Ontario over construction jobs.
