Archive: Show #171 "Steve Gilchrist"

4th Reading

Steve Gilchrist is one of those Tory MPP's the talk shows love. And the feeling has always been mutual. Gilchrist likes to be on TV. And TV shows like to book him as a guest, because he's one of the best and most entertaining communicators in the provincial government.

Should the Scarborough MPP, who's also a cabinet minister, have to quit if he's under investigation? Gilchrist says the answer is no.
