Rosemary Barton is the Hero We Deserve
Rosemary Barton is the host that Evan Solomon never could be. She actually asks good questions, she's not obsessed with her own dumb slogans. Just make her the permanent host of Power & Politics, please.

The demise of Evan Solomon as host of CBC’s flagship political show Power & Politics has left the question of the show’s next permanent host up in the air.

Rosemary Barton, the show’s Friday host and regular Solomon fill-in, has been given the job on an interim basis through the upcoming federal election.
