Global National: Oct. 23, 2020 | Feds struggle to improve long-term care homes amid pandemic

On this episode of Global National: It has been one month since Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s throne speech when he pledged to help provinces improve long-term care homes and protect the most vulnerable from COVID-19. But as David Akin reports, the feds have made little headway.

After living with dirty water for decades, the Neskantaga First Nation in Ontario has had its contaminated water supply completely cut off because an oily substance was found in it. Mike Le Couteur reports on Ottawa’s response to the crisis.

Plus, a group of Canadian publishers is calling on the federal government to force tech giants, like Facebook and Google, to pay for news content on their platforms. Mercedes Stephenson breaks down News Media Canada’s demands.

Turning to the upcoming US election, mail-in ballots are in high demand in Pennsylvania, where previous laws blocked that voting method. Mike Armstrong explains how the popular system could cause problems on the night of the presidential election, Nov. 3.

And during the final US presidential debate of the 2020 election, Democratic candidate Joe Biden promised to transition America away from oil and natural gas. Eric Sorensen looks at how that could impact Canada’s energy sector.

    Today Trudo announced another millions spending for a vaccine. Before he has already announced millions spending for vaccine securing, from vaccine order from others, for vaccine naming, for vaccine research, for vaccine from aliens, for vaccine from masians etc. They just steal money. Don't you see?

    Trudo calls the regular flu as covid. Survival rate is almost 100%. Nobody even feels it. 99% of chance is hoax. But they spend millions on it. Nobody sees where it goes. 99% of chance to the pockets of Trudy's friends. Don't you see?

    Long term care has been underfunded by the feds. They have been begging for years. Now the feds say they gave the provinces money, but there are strings attached as usual.

  31. Avatar

    As a news channel I would imagine that you know that long term care is a 100% Provincial responsibility. The only thing that they could do is give even more money to a Provinces that do not seem to want to do anything about the issue.
