Politics Today October 21, 2012

On this edition of "Politics Today" RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda focussed on two major political stories.

First, the resignation of Dalton McGuinty, the premier of Canada's most populous province of Ontario. McGuinty had three straight election wins in the last nine years, but failed to win a majority last year. He not only resigned, but prorogued the provincial legislature, shutting down the business of the legislture for an indefinite period.

Meanwhile in Ottawa, Canada's Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper presented their second omnibus budget bill this year. This new bill not only involves budgetary items but a whole series of legislative changes to many federal acts and codes.
