What is herd immunity, and can Canada achieve it? Epidemiologist Ashleigh Tuite joins us to talk about the next phase of the COVID pandemic. 12 years ago, the Grub Box, a convenience and small grocery store in Rigolet opened its doors. This year, the doors will be closed. We hear from owner Sandi Michelin. Imagine for a moment you're a visitor to Battle Harbour. The wind is in your hair, smell of salt water wafting across your nose, and a voice in your ear is sharing a story of someone who stood where you are standing centuries ago. Peter Bull from the Battle Harbour Historic Trust joins us to talk about their new audio tour. What might the Greene Report mean for Labrador? Professor Robert Way joins us to talk about the impact. Can Inuit artists act as guides in this rapidly changing environment? We discuss that with artist Heather Campbell. We continue our look at the seal season, or lack of a season, in central Labrador. Derrick Pottle of Rigolet joins us. How can virtual communication technologies created during the pandemic increase accessibility to Indigenous language? Nicholas Welch from Memorial University joins us to talk about that. Finally, the federal government is going to court to fight the Governor of Michigan over the Line 5 pipeline. The line brings oil from Alberta to southwestern Ontario through the length of Michigan, and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer says the pipeline poses an environmental threat. The CBC's Carol Off speaks with Whitney Gravelle of the Bay Mills Indian Community in Michigan about it.
