Today on The Current

The Canadian military has been shaken by a series of sexual misconduct and assault allegations, many involving senior officers. Matt Galloway talks to Lt.-Gen. Wayne Eyre, acting chief of the Defence staff, and Jody Thomas, deputy defence minister, about what can be done to reform the culture of a Canadian institution.

And when he's not saving patients in the ER, Vancouver's Dr. Daniel Kalla writes thrillers. His latest, Lost Immunity, turns vaccine hesitancy and misinformation into a page-turner. He joins us to discuss whether, in a pandemic, fiction can be stranger than truth.
