Post Election Panel

Jamie Watt: How Mr. Harper sees the outcome of the election. The challenges of even a stronger minority government. Several important milestones reached in the campaign just finished. The significance and the challenges that must now be confronted. Meeting expectations of voters. Mr. Harper now as an incumbent returned to office. Other factors that will affect the challenges. Cross pressures as the story of the outcome of the election and of the road ahead. Some examples. Exploring some questions. What the researchers and consultants from Ensight found since the polls closed. A plug for Porter Airlines. Determining why Canadians voted as they did, what it means, and what they expect. One commonality. The negative reaction to the election and other reactions. Something new that emerged with regard to female voters. Research highlights of what lies ahead. The difference two years makes. Canadians still haunted by the spectre of the National Energy Program and what that means now. Insights across the provinces. A paradox. What Harper has to do. Financial concerns. Comments on Harper’s skills and challenges. The year ahead and what that will reveal about Mr. Harper and his government. Robin Sears: Picking up from where the previous speaker left on the issue of “country first.” Mr. Harper not getting the message. Richard Mahoney: Response to Robin Sears’ comments. Robin Sears: The Liberal Party now in a really challenging dilemma. Circumstances of the unfolding leadership transition. Richard Mahoney: Learning about the near unanimity on Afghanistan. The true test of the difference between this Parliament and the other ones. Considering applications for support of Canadian business. The Nixon-to-China thing. Expecting some tough regulatory scrutiny in all sectors. Robin Sears: Echoing the point just made by Richard. Our general impression of the scepticism of Canadian today. The new atmosphere of scepticism and high expectation. Richard Mahoney: The style of the next Parliament. Canadians’ belief about Canadian banks. Jamie Watt: A call for 30-second wrap-ups. Robin Sears: Two verbatims from discussions. The panel ends with a question from Jamie Watt for each speaker, and their responses to them.
