The Current for February 26, 2019
Today on The Current: We look at what Monday's byelection results might mean for NDP fortunes; plus, we hear from a chef who has battled alcoholism in his booze-soaked industry, and now wants to help young cooks avoid the same trials; and we take a deep dive into potholes, asking what can be done to cut their costs to cities and drivers.
Today on The Current:
- After capturing Burnaby South in Monday's byelection, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh will take a seat in the House of Commons for the first time. Will it give him a chance to turn around the party's flagging fortunes before the next election?
- For years, Montreal chef David McMillan struggled with alcoholism while working in an industry saturated with booze. And in the high-stress business, he says he was never taught how to take care of his well-being. He tells us how he hopes things will change.
- The potholes on Canadian roads may wreck rims, pop tires, and cause you to turn the air blue, but are they also making the fight against climate change harder? We take a deep dive into potholes, asking what can be done to cut their costs to cities and drivers.
