PROTESTS ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL: A NEW NORM OR JUST A ONE-OFF TREND? 

Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Barbara Perry, Director of Ontario Tech University’s Centre on Hate, Bias and Extremism, Dr. Christopher Cochrane, an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto Scarborough, and Doris Grinspun, Chief Executive Officer of the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO).

If you’ve been following the federal election to any degree you’ll know that there have been numerous aggressive protests disrupting Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s campaign. At the same time, there have been mobs of anti-vaxxer demonstrators showing up at Ontario hospitals. It’s the kind of thing that we’re not used to seeing during election season. So, where are these violent elements coming from and can we expect this to be the new norm across our political landscape? Dr. Perry explains how a lot of these nasty elements are being organized in the online world and Dr. Cochrane explains just how unprecedented this type of violence has been.

TRUDEAU GOES ON THE ATTACK & THE LATEST POLLING

Libby Znaimer is joined by Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs and Kim Wright, Principal of Wright Strategies.

In the news: the leaders of the main federal parties of Canada had their second French language debate last night. How did each of them fare? And, what will each of them need to do to leave a good impression on the voters during tonight’s English language debate? Perhaps the most heated moment from last night was when Liberal leader Justin Trudeau turned to Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet and said that, “‘You do not have a monopoly on Quebec’ and that he is a Quebecer. Meanwhile, it has become increasingly evident that Trudeau has taken a departure from his sunny ways on the campaign trail as he attacks both NDP leader Jagmeet Singh and Erin O’Toole. So, where do the leaders go from here and what does Darrell’s latest polling show?

MORE PATIENTS ASKING FOR MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS TOWARDS COVID-19 VACCINATIONS

Libby Znaimer is joined by family physicians Dr. Alisa Naiman with the Medical Station clinic in Toronto and Dr. Jason Profetto with Profetto Savatteri Family Medicine in Hamilton.

As proof-of-vaccination becomes increasingly mandated in various settings including gyms, workplaces and theatres, more patients are reaching out to their family doctors to request a medical exemption document so that they can avoid getting vaccinated. The CEO of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario sent out a message to Ontario doctors to be judicious when it comes to administering such an exemption. Our guests outline what those exemptions are and what they’ve been seeing with this concerning trend.
