We discuss the situation with Mark MacKinnon, senior international correspondent for the Globe and Mail; Nina Khrushcheva, professor of international affairs at the New School in New York; and Michael Bociurkiw, global affairs analyst, formerly with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. And we meet Bob Wells, one of the real-life van dwellers in the Oscar-nominated drama Nomadland, and find out why he dropped out of society for a life on the road.
