Hour 1:

Ottawa residents are starting to take notice of the group who are trying to purchase the St. Brigid's Church in Lowertown, and they have concerns about where the money is coming from.

14:06 - "We'll have some ability, whether before the purchase or afterwards, to follow the money and that's what I'm hoping they'll do."

Back on the story of the shadowy group 'The United People of Canada' who are trying to purchase St. Brigid's Church in Lowertown, Rob speaks with local lawyer and concerned citizen James Bowie about some of the unanswered questions he has on how the group is financing the deal.

22:05 - "With the Poilievre campaign, you can't explain it away. This guy consistently is racking up big numbers because there are a lot of Canadians whoa re saying 'I like what this guy says, I don't think he's crazy, I'm sick of being told what to do by a bunch of governments who change the rules and change the opinion they had strongly a month ago'."

This is the place to score your Political Fix! This week's panel features Lindsay Maskell and Chad Rogers talking all things Conservative Party leadership race, where front runner Pierre Poilievre looks poised to claim victory in September despite skipping tonight's final candidates debate.

Hour 3:

0:00 - "Well meaning residents of Lowertown have sent us lots of images where there is a clear link between individuals who were leaders of the Convoy in February and who are involved with United People of Canada. So that is troubling."

Back to St Brigids Church, Rob speaks with the president of the Lowertown Community Association about residents' concerns about the group who are trying to purchase the site.

15:05 - "He just went on to repeat some of the same things we've heard over and over from this government on health care...he really moved to downplay it, he said like 9 out of 10 critical patients are getting seen on time, he says."

We check in with CityNews Queens Park correspondent Richard Southern minutes after Doug Ford took questions from the media on the situation in Ontario's health care system.

21:25 - "We're on average about $39,000 a year, so this 1% increase under Bill 124 actually works out to be eating away at our wages to a tune of about 11% over the last decade."

Rob speaks with Laura Walton from CUPE to understand the union's ask for an 11.7% raise for its education workers in ongoing bargaining with the Ontario government.
