Bill Gates on climate change, the pandemic, and tackling big world problems; why we need early warning systems for future pandemics; and how COVID-19 is impacting birth rates
We bring you a Canadian broadcast exclusive interview with Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates. He speaks with Matt Galloway about his ideas for tackling climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. Plus, what exactly does he think about some of the wild conspiracy theories floating around about him? He weighs in on that too.
Then, the world has learned many lessons from COVID-19, including how unprepared humanity was. Experts say that's why we need to build a better early warning system for future pandemics. We talk to Joanne Liu, a Montreal physician and the former international president of Médecins sans frontières.
Plus, we look at how the pandemic is affecting birth rates around the world. Washington Post reporter Rick Noack tells us about a decline in the number of babies being born in France; Toronto resident Dianne Cordero explains why she's deciding to hold off on having another child during the pandemic; and Kate Choi, an associate professor of sociology at Western University, breaks down what's happening in Canada.
