Hour 1:

And just like that, it's August.

15:48 - "We're so short staffed, we're beyond critical now. It's a crisis...we are going down the way the Titanic did."

Local RN and union rep for nurses as the Ottawa Hospital, Rachel Muir, joins Rob with a look at what front line staff at the hospital are dealing with right now.

21:11 - "They've been studying and defining recessions for, I don't know, 50, 60, 70 years...it is accepted that there's a wide consensus that two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth constitutes a recession."

Is Canada headed for a recession or not? Depends who you ask. Rob asks Ian Lee. The Professor weighs in on how the Canadian economy is functioning right now.

Hour 3:

0:00 - "We don't know in terms of Mr. Brown's support whether they'll all just go mostly to Jean Charest or others, or if a lot of them will stay home. If you factor out that 25%...It still means Pierre Poilievre has a very comfortable lead."

Columnist Michael Taube is back talking Conservative Party Leadership race ahead of Wednesday's final debate, which Pierre Poilievre is skipping.

22:07 - "They believe that Taiwan is a part of China, it is not independent and it it is not sovereign."

International affairs columnist Geoffrey Johnston joins Rob to discuss Nancy Pelosi's controversial visit to Taiwan, and other global issues making news this week.

37:17 - "It's a significant lead, 34% for Catherine McKenney."

We have our first poll of the Ottawa municipal election! Quito Maggi from Mainstreet Research joins Rob to break down the results.
