Rosemary Barton is the host that Evan Solomon never could be. She actually asks good questions, she’s not obsessed with her own dumb slogans. Just make her the permanent host of Power & Politics, please.
How well are be being served by our political media if they can’t be bothered to get both sides of a story if that other side is coming from the Senate? It is a legitimate parliamentary body, even if they’re not elected, and it’s not going away, so maybe it behoves us to actually give it proper coverage.
Desmond Cole and Andray Domise are the co-hosts of CANADALAND:COMMONS, our upcoming weekly politics show.
Both journalists are quick, opinionated and funny, and neither of them knows much about federal politics. This is a good thing.
CANADALAND:COMMONS will shatter the box of Canadian political coverage, discarding insider jargon and horse-race strategy talk for an open, inclusive, and curious exploration of the way our country works, and doesn’t.
The first episode will launch on Tuesday, May 5th.
