I wish we had more shows like this.

This is a great show, and Duncan McCue is doing a perfect job.

I love hearing the opinions of Canadians on all these different issues. We get experts, passionate folks, the whole variety of perspectives from across the country. It's a great way to see what Canadians think and how they speak.

This is one of CBCs best shows. I wish they did it three times a week.

I never miss it

Well, I did skip the classical music discussion. It's especially good when Rex facilitates the caller rather than interjecting or interrupting (does this a lot). The best guest host is Harry Forestall - would get 5 stars if he was full time.

Never Been So Hooked To An Open-Line Show!!

Rex is always open to hear what your opinion is on a certain topic, no arguments or vocal crossfire, just genuine discussion. Rex’s vast knowledge in politics & being in the publics eye makes him the perfect host. If you had ever wanted to listen to a call-in show, start with the best! You won’t be disappointed!
