Tonight on the Daily Brief: Jason Kenney, Bob Stellick, Chris Warkentin and more

- December 9th, 2011

Tonight on The Daily Brief on Sun News Network:

  • Two of the country’s biggest telecom companies, Bell and Rogers, are teaming up to buy one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world: Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. They’ll spend $1.32 billion for the rights to the Leafs and the Raptors. Why? We’ll ask sports business expert Bob Stellick what’s in it for Rogers and Bell and what it means for fans. [Be sure to read the Sun's Rob Longley on this]
  • In Ottawa, the government and the opposition continue to cross swords over the situation in Attawapiskat. We’ll speak to Chris Warkentin, the Conservative MP from northern Alberta who chairs the House of Commons Standing Committee on Aboriginal Affairs about Attawapiskat and about the bigger issue: How do we make sure all First Nations reserves in this country can stand on their own two feet.
  • Ken Cosgrove is a political scientist at Suffolk University in Boston, Mass. But this semester he’s a visiting scholar at Ottawa’s Carleton University, doing some work comparing the political systems in the two countries. He’s also a registered voter in the New Hampshire voters. Which means he’s keeping an eye both professionally and personally on the Republican primary. We’ll ask him about that and about the U.S.-Canadian connection.
  • Plus: Two Queen’s University profs: Phil Giurlando on the eurozone and Andrew Graham on the threats to Canada’s critical infrastructure. Retired U.S. marine Col. Wes Martin on the humanitarian crisis that is Camp Ashraf. Egyptian-Canadian Ali Tobah, from his office in Cairo, reflects on a hectic week in Egypt’s politics.

All programming is subject to change, of course, but this is what we’ve got planned for broadcast at 1800 EDT.
