TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2015 /CNW/ - Maclean's announced today that its year-end interview with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will take place in a live Town Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 16, from Ottawa.
The Maclean's Town Hall with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be carried live, commercial free, on Macleans.ca, City, OMNI 1 in Italian, OMNI 2 in Mandarin, Rogers TV (in Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland), CPAC, and CPAC.ca at 2 p.m. ET. Later that evening, City, OMNI 1 in Italian, OMNI 2 in Mandarin, Rogers TV and CPAC will broadcast an encore presentation of the Town Hall, commercial free, at 7 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings).
Hosted by Maclean's political editor Paul Wells, the one-hour Town Hall will take place from Ottawa's National Arts Centre in front of a live audience. During the question period, the Prime Minister will first take queries from Paul Wells, Rachel Giese (Chatelaine) and Alec Castonguay (L'actualité). Canadians across the country will then have their turn, including those in the live audience, and those on Facebook and Twitter.
"The last time Justin Trudeau visited Maclean's five months ago, his party was in third place in the polls and I asked all the questions," says Maclean's political editor Paul Wells. "Now he's the Prime Minister and we're inviting Canadians to ask their own questions, on the issues they're concerned about."
Canadians can submit their questions on Macleans.ca, as well as the Maclean's Facebook page.
