Hour 1:

Were the Ottawa Police too accommodating of the 'Freedom Convoy' protesters when they first arrived in Ottawa? A pair of recent news reports suggest so. The sixth wave of COVID-19 in Ontario is grabbing headlines again this morning, with concerning reports about hundreds of kids showing up in ERs with severe COVID symptoms.

12:26 - "I'm not surprised, you could see it happening after the convoy started to arrive...it was alarming to see that trucks were parked all along Queen Elizabeth Drive and idling, throwing parties."

Rob digs into some local issues with Somerset councillor Catherine McKenney, who will be running for mayor in this year's election. 

22:55 - "People forget quickly whose idea it was and remember who delivered it, and that's a challenge for the NDP."

It's time to score your Political Fix! Rob is joined by Crestview Strategies vice president Ashton Arsenault and Traxxion Strategies president Karl Belanger to dig into the top political stories of the week.
