What does autocracy look like? Is it a “strongman” rising in the shadows or can it be the ascent of a leader without a democratic mandate as well? We go to Manitoba where the new Premier was elected by just over 8,000 PC loyalists and questions linger around her legitimacy.

Then, we head east to PEI for an update on the provinces mobile health units. Many of the questions we asked when the program was launched have now been presented by the PEI Liberals. How can we expect transparency on public private partnerships and ethics issues when the goal is to privatize healthcare?

Before we go, CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn joins us in the CUPE Ontario Union Hall for a look at the Ontario Federation of Labour’s detailed plan to beat Doug Ford and create a better province for working people — on Election Day and beyond.
