After a controversial stint as special rapporteur looking into foreign interference in Canadian elections, David Johnston has resigned. Journalists Janyce McGregor and Susan Delacourt talk about the dramatic breaking news.
Also, Canada has suffered through the beginning of what could be a historic wildfire season, with thousands of people evacuated and millions affected by dangerous smoke. But how can Canada prepare for future blazes? President of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs Ken McMullen and UBC professor and forestry expert Lori Daniels break down that question. Emergency Preparedness Minister Bill Blair also joins the program to outline the federal government’s response. We also tackle the issue of rising costs and their impact on school lunch programs. Debbie Field, a coordinator with the Coalition for Healthy School Food and Carolyn Hunter, director of the School Breakfast Program at the Ottawa Network for Education talk about the risk to much-needed food programs, and Minister of Families, Children and Social Development Karina Gould discusses the federal government’s pledge to roll out a national policy.
