RCI’s Lynn Desjardins got details from Prof. Andrew Weaver of the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Victoria.

Politics Today September 23, 2012
 

On this edition of "Politics Today" RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda talks about the first days of Canada's parliament after the summer break. The government and opposition parties strategies are already on view as the politicians face off against each other.

In the predominantly French-speaking province of Quebec the new Parti Quebecois government has been sworn in and Premier Pauline Marois has made good on one major campaign promise striking down the university tuition hike in the province that provoked protests by thousands of students this past spring.

And in the oil rich western province of Alberta people joined together to remember a former Conservative premier Peter Lougheed who died Thursday at the age of 84.
