Universal Dentalcare, the True Cost of Cheap Fruit, & Ontario MPP Jill Andrew

We're joined by Dr. Brandon Doucet, to talk about the need to finish the job of Medicare by adding dental care and the push to organize dentists to advocate for changes to the system.

We explore the moral crisis of migrant farming in Ontario harshly brought to light by COVID-19.

Then we're joined by MPP Jill Andrew, Critic for Culture & Women's Issues in the Ontario Legislative Assembly to talk about defunding the police, inequity in the COVID-19 response from the Ontario government, and the purposeful degradation of the healthcare system - and what the Ontario NDP plans to do about it.
