I’ve been listening to CBC Radio’s new current affairs program “The Current” on my commute in the morning. Hosted by Anna Maria Tremonte, the show is excellent. The format is a series of in-depth current affairs stories, and interviews with current newsmakers. Ms. Tremonte is a great interviewer. No softball questions from her. Today she quizzed Elinor Kaplan on new border rules and information collection regimes that Canada Customs is implementing. Kaplan was very good. In contrast, yesterday she interviewed Bill Graham, Minister of Foreign Affairs. Graham is a light weight — he came across as an unprepared, stammering apologist for the government’s position on Iraq.
