COVAX recently made its first deliveries to to Ghana and the Ivory Coast, but Oxfam Canada says wealthy countries are still hoarding the global vaccine supply. We'll speak with Diana Sarosi from Oxfam Canada. A U.S. solution to health care spending in Newfoundland and Labrador. We hear from the CBC's Chris O'Neill-Yates about an American company that's been hired to find ways to cut health care costs in this province. We're all trying to find ways to spend the extra time on our hands since Covid has forced us all to slow down, and for Michael Terriak of Hopedale that means building an igloo. He joins us to talk about it. Mark Nui says he wonders why the Canadian Forces were not called in for the search of his son and niece last week. We hear from him. Election candidates are calling out Elections NL for not translating mail-in voting kits into languages other than English. We hear from Shannon Tobin and Patricia Johnson-Castle. NunatuKavut President Todd Russell joins us to talk about a group of Innu from Quebec apparently hunting in Labrador. We speak with a young Inuit woman from Happy Valley-Goose Bay, who has just published a colouring book dedicated to preserving Indigenous languages in a fun, creative way. Finally, we check in with the Toronto Star's Heather Scoffield for her take on how Canada's vaccination timetable will affect politics, the economic recovery, and the timing of a federal election.
