Produced in Toronto and New York, this co-production featured Pamela Mason as host. It was a product of the women’s movement and featured Mason as interviewer and usually a roster of men defending their position. In fact, the only female guest was Judy LaMarsh, who was Secretary of State in the Trudeau government. The first season was produced by Steven Krantz and syndicated in the United States.

The second, abbreviated season, was completely different: Lorraine Thomson was the new host and the guest list changed considerably. The Executive Producer was Don Brown with producers Sig Gerber, Bernard Cowan and Beth Slaney.
