Podcast & Video

This is the seventh episode of The Hub’s bi-weekly series featuring Sean Speer in conversation with leading author, journalist, and thinker David Frum. The two discuss what should be done with historic government properties including the Canadian Prime Minister’s residence and why a national design competition could both improve Canada’s status in the world and help solve the country’s national unity crisis.

Also, they touch on the legacy of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as it celebrates its fortieth anniversary and why it is dangerous for the courts to be too actively involved in setting policy.
