Today on The Current

  • Jody Wilson-Raybould's testimony has been reverberating through the House of Commons, and across the country, since her appearance before the justice committee on Wednesday. We speak to two experts about how the controversy could affect the Liberals, and what the other parties stand to gain from it.
  • Olympic athletes can devote their whole lives to training for that brief shot at glory. But some say all that work doesn't leave them with much say in how their amateur competitions are run, or how they're rewarded. Some are now trying to level the playing field when it comes to the rights of amateur athletes, including the possibility of unionization.
