The third wave of COVID-19 is battering the city of Brampton in Ontario's Peel Region, where many essential workers have weathered the pandemic without paid sick days. We hear the stories of people living and working on the front lines of the crisis, and talk to those trying to help. Plus, we discuss the systemic inequity the city faces, and how that hurts all of Canada, with Dr. Brooks Fallis, a critical care physician at Brampton Civic Hospital; and Fatima Syed, a freelance reporter from Peel Region.
