On this edition of Politics Today RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda focuses on Canada’s participation at the G20 Economic Summit in Russia. Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he was hopeful about the future of the global economy, but continued to raise concerns about the lack of action by the international community on the situation in Syria.
Wojtek also talks about a media report that the Prime Minister sent a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama proposing joint action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to gain approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline project.
As well, he dealt with the issue of when parliamentarians will return to the Commons and the Senate.
