Canadian TV to Examine Role of Think Tanks

The Agenda with Steve Paikin, the current affairs program on TVOntario (TVO), will broadcast a program on November 17 titled "Think Tanks and Policy Planks" which will examine the role think tanks are playing in influencing policy in Canada.

Guests include:
  • Rohinton Medhora: President, Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI)
  • Trish Hennessy: Director, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives
  • Jason Clemons, Executive Vice President, Fraser Institute
  • Don Abelson: Professor, Political Science, Western University
  • Tasha Kheiriddin, Colunist/Editor of Editorial Board, National Post
  • Kathleen Monk, Founding Executive Director, Broadbent Institute

We will be watching closely to see if they discuss the state of Canadian think tanks and if Canadian think tanks are truly in decline.
