4th Reading

Tonight on 4th Reading, a feature interview with Ontario Premier Mike Harris as his government approaches the mid-point in its mandate. Things seemed to be going well until the Toronto "megacity" plans and the "downloading" of programs to the municipalities, and the plans to close hospitals. Is the Common Sense Revolution going off the rails? After our interview with the Premier, our Fourth Reading commentators; former Ontario NDP MPP Richard Johnston; Richard Mahoney, at one time the President of the Ontario Liberals, now with Fraser and Beatty in Ottawa, and Hugh Segal - senior Progressive Conservative advisor, on the government's track record so far.
