Today on The Current:
- In his new book, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh alleges that he was sexually abused as a child. He speaks to Anna Maria Tremonti about the abuse, and why he hopes speaking out will help other survivors.
- We look at the flooding in Quebec, and examine how climate change is exacerbating a problem that could have an impact on the whole country.
- Appalled that migrants were being funnelled into a U.S. detention centre near their home, a group of San Diego residents starting writing letters — to the migrants themselves. And then the migrants wrote back, starting a conversation about the conditions they face, and what those ordinary on the outside could do to help.
