Episode details

When the cameras get switched off in the House of Commons, the work of an MP doesn’t stop — and that includes over the summer months when politics might be the furthest thing from anyone’s mind.

To give us an idea of what life is like for an MP away from Parliament Hill, I’m joined this week by two Members of Parliament: Dan Albas, Conservative MP for the B.C. riding of Central Okanagan–Similkameen–Nicola, and Greg Fergus, Liberal MP for the Quebec seat of Hull–Aylmer.

(Note that this episode was recorded a week ago, before wildfires hit the Kelowna region.)
