RECOVERING POLITICIANS PANEL: AIR CANADA HAS A PROBLEM
Libby Znaimer is joined by Charles Sousa, The former minister of finance for Ontario and MPP for Mississauga South, Hugh Segal, who served as Chief of Staff to Bill Davis, Ontario’s 18th Premier and was a Senator of Canada and Howard Hampton, former leader of the Ontario NDP.
In not so surprising news, Air Canada ranked number one for worst airline in North America when it comes to flight delays. WestJet came in second. And, Libby wants to know: is there any ministerial responsibility left in this country?The Federal Minister of Transportation keeps pointing the finger of blame elsewhere. First, it was on the passengers. Now, on the airlines even though the airlines certainly deserve some level of blame. And, late last week Air Canada announced that it is cutting back summer flights by 15 percent. Is that really going to solve the congestion problem at Pearson and elsewhere? We also have the ongoing Conservative leadership race to talk about. What’s the latest in a race that has seen candidates constantly sniping at each other over membership sign-ups and more?
SIKH SECURITY GUARDS FOR THE CITY FIRED OVER SHAVING REQUIREMENTS
Libby Znaimer is joined first by Brad Ross, Toronto’s Chief Communications Officer followed by Balpreet Singh, legal Counsel and Spokesperson, The World Sikh Organization of Canada (WSO).
More than 100 members of the Sikh community have lost their jobs as security guards for the City of Toronto over a clean shaven policy that is being required of staff in order to properly wear N95 masks. The WSO says that these Sikh employees are being punished for their faith. So, what do you think? Is this workplace discrimination?
