Today on The Current: Jean Vanier founded L'Arche, helping thousands of people with disabilities before he died last year. Today we talk to members of that community who tell us they've been left shaken by reports that Vanier sexually abused multiple women. Plus, our series The Fix looks at hopes for a coronavirus cure coming from a Montreal lab. Then, plans to expand Britain's Heathrow airport have been blocked by a court ruling over the emissions involved — will that mean all future major projects are viewed through the lens of climate change? And finally, Dr. Helen Fisher tells what's happening in the brains (and maybe hearts) of contestants on Netflix's popular show Love is Blind — where contestants meet, date, and agree to marry, without ever seeing each other.
