Hour 1:

Health care in Ontario is in crisis. It is the first big test for Premier Ford's new government. How are they doing?

10:48 - "The government then used like to boast about having a 'lean' system. Now we know, I think, the system is malnourished not lean because there's no capacity in it."

Postmedia columnist Randall Denley joins Rob to provide some context to how Ontario's health care system got into this dire state, and what policy directions he thinks the government should be exploring now.

21:00 - "It was a good time for Sylvia Jones to make her first media appearance because through the pandemic we had this regular accountability of elected officials and it had been weeks since she was sworn in, and also people weren't expecting the learning curve to be that steep for her in this portfolio."

It's Thursday, that means it's time for 'Ontario Politics This Week'. Provincial affairs strategists Lindsay Maskell and Ashton Arsenault join Rob for a panel discussion about how the health care crisis is shaping Ontario's political landscape.
