Dave Korzinski on Charity Giving & Julie Cohen and Betsy West on Ruth Bader Ginsburg – September 27 2020

It’s more fallout from the pandemic. At a time when the need is greater than ever, Canadians are giving less to charity. According to the Angus Reid Institute, 37% of donors who have to given to at least one charity in the last two years have decreased their donations because of COVID-19. It adds up to a loss of hundreds of millions of dollars for the country’s 86,000 charities. Libby reached Angus Reid’s Research Director Dave Korzinski.


On Friday, the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol – after her body lay in repose at the Supreme Court earlier in the week. It culminated a distinguished career full of firsts, giving the public a chance to pay respects as the national outpouring of grief continued unabated since her death from pancreatic cancer on September 18th. It also deepened partisan divisions as Republicans moved to name a replacement before the November election. We’d like to revisit the 2018 interview with Julie Cohen and Betsy West – producers of the documentary RBG – starting with Bader Ginsburg herself reading famous words she used at her first Supreme Court argument.
