Political commentators Susan Smith (Liberal), Tim Powers (Conservative), and Kiavash Najafi (NDP) discuss Ontario’s decision to provide paid sick leave during the pandemic and the federal government’s plan to launch an external review into sexual misconduct in the military.

This week the provincial government announced that workers in Ontario will be eligible for three paid sick days, to a maximum of $200 per day. They question whether the provincial government is doing enough, and if its efforts are too late.

The panel also reacts to Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan’s announcement of another independent review by a retired Supreme Court justice into military misconduct.
