The first round of negotiations for a new North American Free Trade Agreement will continue today in Washington. Talks began yesterday with a demand from US representatives for major changes to the quarter-century-old pact. Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister says it’s not up to Canadians to choose who’s the president of the United States, and Canada absolutely respects the democratic choice of the American people. Chrystia Freeland sidestepped questions in Washington about whether she feels uncomfortable negotiating a new NAFTA with this particular American administration …  after U.S. President Donald Trump disbanded two business advisory panels following resignations from the councils by several CEOs because of his response  to the racial violence in Virginia last weekend.  Professor Emeritus of Economics at McMaster University, Atif Kuburski joins Libby to talk about it.

Are some of your favourite childhood memories going to the CNE ? I’m not just talking about daring to go on the rides, but the adventurous eating in the Food Building where you’d dare friends to try the latest, weirdest and wildest food trends. Well, it’s that time of year again!  The 139th Canadian National Exhibition kicks off tomorrow and will run for 18 days. The food featured at the CNE continues to attract adventurous foodies from far and wide, who are eager to try the delicious and sometimes crazy culinary concoctions. This year, the CNE is commemorating Canada’s 150th with a True North theme, so you’ll find everything from Bacon Nation, where the food is made with everyone’s favourite Canadian food – bacon, to the CNE’s first-ever East Coast Kitchen Party om August 19 & 20 where there will be Maritime fare, entertainment, East Coast brews and spirits, as well as Newfoundland Screech!  Food has become the ‘main event’ at Canada’s largest fair. Virginia Ludy, the CEO of the CNE joins Libby to talk about it. Click here to listen to the podcast 

 

Having a strong, reliable support team is important – not just for your physical health, but for your mental health as well! Many people don’t realize that their local pharmacist is an important part of the team when it comes to their mental health. Whether you need help understanding your medications, information about lifestyle changes, or support with a mental health diagnosis, you pharmacist is a great resource. Dean Miller of the Ontario Pharmacists Association talks about your pharmacist’s role in supporting your mental and physical health. Click here to listen to the podcast.
