Today on The Current

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has warned that rising COVID-19 cases mean that Canadians are "on the brink of a fall that could be much worse than the spring." Dr.  Andrew Boozary, Benoit Masse, and Dr. Patricia Daly discuss the spikes happening across the country, and the next steps in containing the pandemic.

Then, our national affairs panellists Charelle Evelyn, Marie Vastel, and Jeremy Nuttall discuss the prime minister's address, Wednesday's throne speech, and talk of an early election.

And Louisville erupted in protest Wednesday night, after no police were charged in the killing of Breonna Taylor. Matt Galloway discusses the decision, and its aftermath with scholar Ricky L. Jones, former police detective Marq Claxton (now with the Black Law Enforcement Alliance), and former Kentucky assistant attorney general John W. Stewart.
