Danielle Smith’s UCP wins Alberta election; grief and anger in earthquake-stricken Turkey; Canadian cyclist Derek Gee wins hearts at Giro D'Italia; and doctor warns of ER crisis
The United Conservative Party has won Alberta’s provincial election, giving Danielle Smith four more years as premier. Matt Galloway discusses what the result means for the province and Canada, with former Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi; former city councillor Jeromy Farkas; and Michael Solberg, a staffer in the government of former prime minister Stephen Harper.
Then, thousands remain homeless after the deadly earthquakes that struck Turkey in February. The CBC's Briar Stewart takes us to the city of Antakya, where reconstruction is slow, and there is a burning anger around accusations that fraud and corruption fuelled the disaster.
Plus, Derek Gee was the only Canadian cyclist competing in this year’s Giro D'Italia, winning an army of fans for his grit and tenacity. He tells us what it takes to ride up Italian mountains with the best in the world.
And at Surrey Memorial Hospital in B.C., emergency room physicians say understaffing and overcrowding are putting patients at risk — but local health officials are not being transparent about the crisis. We talk to Dr. Urbain Ip, one of the physicians who signed an open letter calling out health officials for ignoring their concerns.
