Here is what's on this week's episode of The House
Sport minister responds to Hockey Canada crisis
Canada's most iconic sport — hockey — has been embroiled in months of turmoil, with three separate police investigations now underway into alleged group sexual assaults involving former junior players.

Sports Minister Pascale St-Onge talks to guest host Ashley Burke about her reaction to the latest allegations and the mounting calls for Hockey Canada's leaders to resign.
Backbenchers' backyards: NDP MP Leah Gazan

The House hears from people who say they've been targeted by coordinated, violent death threats. Then, experts Emily Laidlaw and Yuan Stevens dig into what government legislation could do to stem the tide of online toxicity.
