On the Show:

Tasha Kheiriddin, Alison Azer, Percy Downe, Ford O'Connell, Richard Mahoney, Tom Parkin, Mike Van Soelen

Alison Azer, mother of four whose children were taken by their father, Saren Azer, into Iraqi Kurdistan nearly 8 months ago joins us. He's wanted by Interpol and she wants her children, all under the age of 12, home safely. We first spoke to Alison during the election in October about her plight for her missing children. We wrote an article for Maclean's and have followed her fight all the way to Parliament Hill where just weeks ago Alison took to Ottawa to push the government to do everything in its power to get her kids back. She tells us what the federal government is doing, whether it's enough and why we should all care about the four missing Azer kids.

Liberal Senator Percy Downe explains why he says Canada needs to measure the tax gap and what more the Canada Revenue Agency could do to make sure tax avoidance and evasion don't cost the Canadian economy billions of dollars.

Republican strategist For O'Connell explains what the Wisconsin primary means for the Republican race.

The War Room with Richard Mahoney, Tom Parkin and Mike Van Soelen weigh in on Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan's plan for a defence review and ponder what it would be like if Canada annexed the islands of Turks and Caicos.
