Steve Paikin - anchor and Senior Editor of TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin - is one of Canada's most astute and respected journalists. Few people know the modern-era premiers of Canada's most populous province the way Steve Paikin does. He has covered Queen's Park politics, discussed provincial issues from all perspectives with his TVO guests, and has interviewed the premiers one-on-one. Paikin and the Premiers offers a rare, uniform perspective on John Robarts, Bill Davis, Frank Miller, David Peterson, Bob Rae, Mike Harris, Ernie Eves, Dalton McGuinty, and Kathleen Wynne.
