CBC News Network’s Sunday Scrum panel is your destination for frank discussion and analysis of the week’s big Canadian political stories.

This week, we ask our panellists about the federal government’s plan to repatriate Canadian citizens from the coronavirus-affected region in China and how the debate over social issues was thrust into the Conservative leadership race.

We also discuss what the death of a sex worker says about the current state of prison release regulations, and who should be the next Canadian ambassador to the U.S.

Watch the clips below.
