Your Call: US Drone policy; Canada's elections

image.jpg

On the Oct 23rd edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss the Canadian elections. Voters ended Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party’s nearly 10-year rule by handing the Liberal party and its leader Justin Trudeau an absolute majority in the Parliament.

We’ll also talk about the new top-secret NSA documents detailing the US drone program, which were leaked to The Intercept.  How are US media reporting on US drone policy? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

 Andrew Cockburn, Washington editor of Harper's magazine, and the author of "Kill Chain: The Rise Of The High-Tech Assassins"

Tim Harper, national affairs columnist for Toronto Star
