How long can we all follow strict social distancing orders?

In today’s Big Story podcast, All the reports say that, so far, Canada’s strategy is working. The curves from province to province are beginning to flatten. That’s thanks to Canadians isolating themselves for almost two months now. But how long can this high level of cooperation keep up?

The weather in many parts of the country is getting warmer, we’re already seeing some tiny protests, and if some people start bending and breaking the rules, how will we collectively respond to that? What do we need from governments and health officials to convince us to keep it up, but also give us enough hope that people won’t be tempted to start finding ways around the rules?

GUEST: Dr. Caroline McDonald-Harker, Sociologist at Mount Royal university, Director of the Centre for Community Disaster Research
