Inkless on Class ActsWhat he said (at least for the English-Canadian part).
To my mind, in English Canada, Paikin is utterly unique in his ability to actually moderate a discussion, often calling out obscurantism and nonsense. I've noticed many the arched eyebrow over the salary he gets from TVO, but I have always viewed him as superb and maybe even worth some of my tax money (any CBC case would be much harder to make with me). He actually runs a regular Canadian policy discussion show that is not an embarrassment!
(To be clear, I do not think Don Newman runs a policy show - I admire him too, but that about ends the list.) It is a politics show. Sadly, in some ways, quite different.
