4th Reading

It's Constituency Week at Queen's Park, that break in the Legislative session when our elected representatives head back to their ridings to hear what the folks back home are thinking. And that kind of ear-bending, some say, is the best political polling around. What are the MPP's hearing this week? We ask two of Ontario's top pollsters. How much do governments listen to polls? Does this one? Host Steve Paikin is joined by John Wright, a Senior Vice President at Angus Reid; and Jane Armstrong, Vice President of Environics Research. And 4th Reading's Queen's Park analysts: Senior Conservative advisor Hugh Segal; Liberal Richard Mahoney, now at Fraser and Beatty; and former NDP cabinet minister Ruth Grier.
