A damning and terrible report on the state of youth group homes in Saskatchewan shows the abject failure of the province to care for those in its care. What does it say about us as Canadians?

Then, Cargill workers in High River, Alberta are going on strike. Their workplace has been ground zero for COVID outbreaks in the past year and workers are demanding safer conditions. What responsibility does Cargill have to the workers, the community, and Albertans?

Big news — just one month after symbolically voting to end equalization, the number show that Alberta took in more money from Ottawa than it sent — yet another egg in the face for Jason Kenney and his UCP friends.
