Bob Komsic is filling in for Libby Znaimer today. He is joined by David Cravit, Chief Membership Officer of CARP, Bill VanGorder, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Policy Officer at CARP,  and John Wright, Executive Vice President of Maru Public Opinion.We begin the discussion by sharing our Thanksgiving day plans and recapping how our dinner with family and friends went last night. Did you have a large gathering? Are you concerned about gatherings as COVID-19 cases continue to rise? And, speaking of COVID-19, there were as many as 150 outbreaks in long-term care homes in Ontario as of Saturday, Oct. 8. On that day last year, there were only 14 outbreaks reported. Finally, we talk about the emotional toll that natural disasters like Hurricane Fiona and Ian can take on Seniors.
 
WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY

Bob Komsic is joined by Dr. Keith Dobson, Profesor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Calgary and past president of the Canadian Psychological Association.It’s World Mental Health Day. According to the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), 1 in 5 Canadians experience mental illness in any given year. Also, by the time Canadians reach 40, 1 in 2 of us have either had or are experiencing mental illness. So, how are you feeling today? Feel free to call in and share your story.

HOCKEY CANADA FALLOUT

Bob Komsic is joined by Dr. Richard Leblanc, Law and governance professor at York University.

Hockey Canada’s Director and Interim Board Chair Andrea Skinner has resigned in the latest development pertaining to the organization’s fallout. Canada’s Minister of Sport, Pascale St-Onge, continues to call for leadership change at Hockey Canada. The organization began to face heavy public scrutiny in May when it settled a $3.5 million lawsuit with a woman who alleged that 8 hockey players assaulted her in a London, Ontario hotel room while she was intoxicated back in 2018. So, where does Hockey Canada go from here? Dr. Leblanc explains.
