In today’s Big Story podcast, even people who have spent their lives covering governments of all stripes can’t recall a week like the one Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government has had. New restrictions, massive public blowback, and immediate reversal on some just-announced measures. Rising ICU numbers threatening to overwhelm the hospital system. Police forces publicly declining to enforce new tactics the government claimed would be implemented. Calls for Doug Ford’s resignation. A mad vaccine appointment scramble. And now, a premier isolating after a close COVID-19 contact.
That’s not everything. It’s just a handful of the strangest headlines. It’s been quite a week in Ontario. We’ll get an insider’s take.
