4th Reading

Should Ontario be getting into the VLT business? Steve is joined by two guests on opposite sides of the issue. Marshall Pollock is a former head of the Ontario Lottery Corporation. He's now backing a major private initiative to bring VLT's into the marketplace; and Jim Bradley, a 19-year veteran of the legislature. A former cabinet minister in David Peterson's government; he's the Liberal member for St. Catharines. They join the regular panel: Jane Pepino, Richard Mahoney, Hugh Mackenzie. What do people think of the Tories' first budget? And within a week, the first referendum on this government. A bi-election in the Toronto riding of York South. Jim Coyle of the Ottawa Citizen and freelance journalist Pauline Johnson have the latest word.
