Episode Transcript

Today on The Current:

  • Jane Philpott, one of the former ministers at the centre of the SNC-Lavalin affair, speaks to Anna Maria Tremonti about the scandal and her recent expulsion from the Liberal caucus.
  • Students in Ontario are staging a walk-out this week, to protest provincial policy changes that they say threaten their education. We hear from students, parents, teachers and researchers about one of their concerns: class sizes, an issue that animates those in education across all of Canada.
  • Twenty-five years ago in Rwanda, close to a million Tutsi Rwandans were massacred in 100 days. We speak to the survivors of that genocide, who have settled in Canada.
