Conservatives, led by Jason Kenney, are spreading disinformation about empty grocery shelves and the impacts of vaccine mandates on our food supply chain and ignoring the realities of Canadians struggling to put food on the table. This is happening as a convoy of trucks heads towards Ottawa to protest the vaccine mandate for cross-border truckers. Why the obfuscation?

Escalations in Ukraine are threatening to boil over with disinformation flying and imperial forces facing off. What is the left to do? Can we oppose war and also stand against imperialism?

Then, we’re joined in the CUPE Ontario Union Hall by Carolyn Ferns of the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care and Athina Basiliadis, a Frontline Child Care Worker and a Child Care Representative on the CUPE Social Service Workers' Coordinating Committee to discuss yet another failure of the Ford government to protect frontline workers and our children.
