The Current for May 30, 2022
Today on The Current:
Gov. Gen. Mary Simon talks to Matt Galloway about being the first Indigenous person to be appointed Governor General, and how she sees her role as a unifier in a time of national division. She also touches on the value of an apology and the true meaning of reconciliation.
Plus, cats loom large in Iceland's folklore and culture, but some towns and cities are now trying to get the feline population under control. We hear more from Egill Bjarnason, a writer and journalist in Reykjavík.
And The Current's Joana Draghici travelled to Uvalde, Texas, where a mass shooting took place at an elementary school last week. She brings us the voices from that community, as they grapple with their grief and call for change.
