Journalists Susan Delacourt, Joël-Denis Bellavance, and John Ivison discuss the passing of the 2021 Federal Budget and Canada’s COVID-19 response. The passing of the budget does not come as a surprise after NDP leader Jagmeet Singh said he did not want to trigger a snap election in midst of the pandemic.
Delacourt, Bellavance, and Ivison also touch on the governments decision to deploy the military to Ontario to help the province deal with a surge of COVID-19 cases, and the country’s border strategy to reduce international travel from COVID-19 hotspots.
