ZOOMER SQUAD: NOT ALL LTC HOMES WITH AC & ROGERS HEARINGS IN OTTAWA 

Marissa Lennox is filling in for Libby Znaimer today. She is joined by Peter Muggeridge, Senior Editor of Zoomer Magazine and Bill VanGorder, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Policy Officer of CARP.

In the news: According to the ministry of long-term care, there are still 90  homes without air conditioning  in all resident rooms. Last year, the province passed legislation that would make it mandatory for nursing homes to supply air conditioning to all resident rooms by this year. In other news, a central Toronto hospital-Toronto Western Hospital (which is part of the UHN)- came close to shutting down its ER department this weekend due to staffing shortages. Our panel weighs in on the latest.

THE POPE VISITS CANADA

Marissa Lennox is now joined by Dr. Veldon Coburn, professor of Aboriginal Studies at the University of Ottawa.

Today: The Pope arrived in Canada this Sunday for a six-day trip where he will focus on reconciliation efforts with Indigenous communities.

The House of Commons industry committee will be having two hearings today involving Rogers officials. The hearings will pertain to the 15 hour service outage that took place earlier this month and affected millions of Canadians. Those involved in testifying today include Rogers executives, industries minister François-Philippe Champagne and members of the CRTC. So, what can we expect from that?
