The West Block: COVID-19 response, fallout of Canada’s second wave
On The West Block this week Mercedes Stephenson recounts the record numbers of COVID-19 cases that continue to sweep the country. She asks Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole about his take on Canada’s response to the pandemic. Internationally, O’Toole says it’s time for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to get serious on China from a security, human rights and trade perspective. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister, Marco Mendicino, says Canada continues to take a “strong and principled” stand on China. And for a look inside the municipal response to COVID-19, Mercedes talks to Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi, who says COVID-19 restrictions need to be smart and targeted to slow the spread of the virus.
