Today on The Current

We discuss yesterday's announcement of a joint independent review of the mass shooting that took place in Nova Scotia in April.

Plus, spikes in COVID-19 may have been expected as Canadians businesses start to reopen, but at what point is there a danger that they can tip over into much worse outbreaks?

Then, we hear about a new mural that will help celebrate the 150th birthday of world boxing champion George Dixon of Africville. The artwork is being kept under wraps until the unveiling on July 25 in Halifax, N.S.

And in a conversation first aired in January, author Ada Calhoun discusses her book about the mid-life crisis facing Gen X women, and asks why it isn't being taken seriously.
