Alberta announces that it's joined the federal Liberals' scheme to offer $10 a day childcare leaving Ontario as the last holdout. It's a win that's desperately needed by both Jason Kenney and Justin Trudeau, and a surefire election issue for Doug Ford.

Bill 2 in Quebec has been modified but is still a discriminatory law against transgender Quebeckers as the CAQ continues it's push to fight the culture war legislatively.

Then, we're joined by CUPE Ontario Executive Committee member & Pink Triangle Committee representative Susan Gapka in the CUPE Ontario Union Hall to discuss this weekend's Trans Day of Remembrance, CUPE Ontario's role in the fight for Trans workers, and the issues that face Trans Canadians every day.
