The Loop, Episode 10. (Krystina Silva/CBC)

COVID-19 is exposing the cracks in our systems, but how this pandemic is affecting vulnerable communities might just change the way we take care of them in the long run.

This week investigative reporter Jennie Russell takes us through Alberta's long term care system and the overhaul experts are asking for.

Closer to home, reporter Paige Parsons takes us to Chinatown where the community and its businesses have faced an uphill battle against the economic effect of coronavirus.

Plus we learn about how one Indigenous artist is spreading language across the province, and an election that's dividing man's best friend in Mill Creek.
