Monitoring the House of Commons' question period, mainstream media and the conversation on social media, Watt and his team at Navigator Ltd. determine which issues gained the most attention in official Ottawa, and then measure how much traction those issues managed to find with Canadians outside the nation's capital.

This week: Canada's Kyoto withdrawal, the end of the House of Commons' fall sitting and federal intervention in Attawapiksat.
