Almost perfect

Chantal, Andrew, and Paul are all excellent, especially Chantal. When Paul is up against his deadlines at Macleans, his spot is sometimes filled by someone who’s not as compelling, although I do also like Althia Raj, who’s up to the task more than most and willing to voice a contrary opinion.

So good that I wish it was longer, but its concision is probably one of its strengths.

Intelligent

In my estimation At Issue is the most insightful and intelligent news analysis panel discussion currently in the public eye. Deliberative and rational in construct and tone it exemplifies principled journalistic standards and evidence-based consideration of Canadian affairs.

The closest Canada comes to The Daily

Rosemary is great, and I love Andrew and Chantal more and more each time I listen. The rotating third guest can be hit or miss.
