Tuesday. Ottawa officially has a one-in-a-million transit system: Major damage from a lightning storm has the LRT out of service indefinitely. One of Ottawa's largest employers is laying off 10% of its work force today. Stephen Harper has endorsed Pierre Poilievre. 

11:08 - "Making it mandatory for kids to actually take online courses, my goodness, if we've learned anything in the last few years it surely has to be that this does not work for most kids."

As teachers unions head back to the bargaining table this month, Rob checks in with NDP education critic Marit Stiles on what the opposition is looking for from Minister Stephen Lecce on the file this year.

21:04 - "We know what happened. Physical sales and physical stores fell vertically off a cliff, because the government told us all to go home! Even the young healthy people."

Professor Ian Lee is here to break down the big breaking news this morning that Shopify is laying off 10% of its work force, and discuss whether Canada is heading for recession.

Hour 3:

0:00 - "As a co-founder of that party and the movement, he obviously has strong views, and he also I think doesn't see Jean Charest as the natural heir of the work that he did."

Conservative strategist Garry Kellar joins Rob to discuss Stephen Harper's endorsement of Pierre Poilievre and how it may shape conservative politics after the leadership race concludes.

13:06 - "You know its a very tough day for both Toby and the leadership team to admit that they made the wrong bet, and they effectively have to correct their course, not only for shareholders but for all the remaining employees."

Back on the big local story today, Rob speaks with Ottawa Business Journal publisher Michael Curran about why Shopify is laying off 10% of its work force and what the future of the company looks like as its shares continues to fall.

21:44 - "When you look at previous Papal trips, they've really almost been more like ribbon cutting ceremonies in contrast. This is for an important pastoral and historic reason."

Rob speaks with religious studies professor Emma Anderson from the University of Ottawa about the significance of the Pope's apology for residential schools from the perspective of the Church and modern Catholicism.
