COVID-19: Canada Responds

NDP Leader on COVID-19 Aid, Vaccines, Military Misconduct

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh speaks with reporters on Parliament Hill about his repeated call for the federal government to improve the paid-sick leave program amid the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. He is also asked about Canada’s vaccine rollout and about the government’s broadcasting bill (C-10) that has sparked public outcry over the potential regulation of user-generated content on social media platforms. The NDP leader is also asked about a motion from the Conservative party regarding the government’s handling of sexual misconduct allegations in the Canadian Armed Forces. Conservatives are calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to fire his chief of staff Katie Telford over her alleged knowledge of allegations made against the former chief of the defence staff, General Jonathan Vance.
