The Bill Kelly Show Podcast:

Pfizer or Moderna?

It’s the COVID-19 vaccine question more and more Canadians are asking themselves as the country adapts to being in the privileged position of having millions of doses of both flowing, compared to the vaccine scarcity of earlier months of the year.

But anyone concerned that they should be weighing the two mRNA vaccines can rest assured — there’s no wrong answer, and no benefit to shopping around for one versus the other.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford has unveiled a major cabinet shuffle that removes several ministers and returns Rod Phillips to the front bench, in a reset that aims to inject more diversity into the Progressive Conservative government less than a year before the next provincial election.

In the first significant revamp of his cabinet in two years, Mr. Ford removed five ministers from their roles while promoting younger members, women and people of colour, as the province looks to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

But in the key posts of education, finance, health and solicitor-general, the ministers remain unchanged.

The biggest focus was on Merilee Fullerton's departure from the LTC file. Many are saying that was a long time coming, but her replacement is raising eyebrows: none other than Rod Phillips, making his return after stepping down in the wake of the scandal caused by his secretive trip to the Carribean last Winter.

What are they thinking?

It’s National Indigenous People Day...

It’s no secret that museum collections have benefitted from the colonization of countries occupied by imperial powers such as Britain and France.

But in recent years, spurred in part by the 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), there is a global push to decolonize museums.

And in Decolonizing Museums, Part 1, APTN Investigates takes a look at how that push is going in Canada – beginning with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR).
