Editorial Board: Caterpillar debate needs a reality check
Welcome to the Toronto Star editorial board's weekly podcast, focusing on top issues of the day. The board is responsible for the editorials that appear every day in the Star, and every day we have a lively discussion on what to write about, and what to say. The podcast will give us a chance to share some of those debates with Star readers.
Today we're talking about a couple of this week's big issues – the fallout from the closure of a locomotive plant in London, Ont., by the U.S. giant Caterpillar, and a decision by the federal government to tell Canada's national spy agency to use information that may have been obtained through torture. Editorial page editor Andrew Phillips is joined by editorial board members Gordon Barthos and Leslie Papp.
