Libby Znaimer is joined by Karen Stintz, CEO of Variety Village, John Capobianco, Senior Vice President & Senior Partner, FleishmanHillard HighRoad, and Charles Sousa, the former Minister of Finance for Ontario and MPP for Mississauga South.
It’s the first time our strategists are convening since Toronto Mayor John Tory announced that he will be running for a third term in the next municipal election. And, the provincial election in Ontario is just weeks away. Yesterday, PM Justin Trudeau was joined by Premier Doug Ford to announce a child care deal. One take from The Toronto Star is that the real governing coalition in the country is Justin Trudeau and Doug Ford! What do you think? And, we talk about the latest in the Conservative Party leadership race.
ONTARIO POSITIVITY RATE SPIKE AND AN INCREASE IN HOSPITALIZATIONS
Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Timothy Sly, an epidemiologist and professor at the school of Occupational and Public Health at Ryerson University and Dr. Barry Pakes, medical officer of health for York Region.
Yes, the mask mandate in Ontario has been lifted since March 21st. But, at the same time, the COVID-19 situation in the province is only intensifying. Yesterday, provincial labs reported 1741 new confirmed cases. We ask our doctors about this new phase and whether we’re in sixth wave.
