on the future of counterSpin
As you may have seen in the press, CBC Newsworld has announced that counterSpin will not be renewed for next season.  Newsworld is developing a new flagship interview show to run daily in the 8pm time slot.

CBC had announced that counterSpin would complete this season playing an important role in Newsworld's coverage of an expected spring election. But that is not to be the case.

We at counterSpin are saddened by the decision not to renew the show.

THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE IN CANADA
Wednesday, May 5, 2004.
Federal Health Minister Pierre Pettigrew caused a ruckus by saying private health care delivery is not incompatible with the Canada Health Act. While Pettigrew later tried to backpedal, claiming he had been misunderstood, his comments have left many wondering just what the government's policy really is. Are public-private partnerships, two-tier health care and other such initiatives threatening the public health system? With an election call expected any time, a special town-hall edition of counterSpin debates the future of Canadas Health Care System.

WHAT SHOULD PAUL MARTIN SAY TO GEORGE BUSH?
Wednesday, April 28, 2004.
Prime Minister Paul Martin is gearing up for a big trip to Washington. It will be his first visit with President George Bush. Expectations are high as both leaders prepare for national elections this year. But there is a long list of controversial foreign policy issues on the minds of many Canadians. Some of these include the ongoing crisis in Haiti, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the situations in both Iraq and Afghanistan and the fast approaching ballistic missile defense shield. On the eve of the Bush-Martin summit, counterSpin debates what Paul Martins message to George Bush should be.
