Surprise surprise, it sucks working for Conservatives. Erin O’Toole calls for an investigation into CPC MP Shannon Stubbs but political motives remain.

Then we head to the CUPE Ontario Union Hall where we’re joined by CUPE Ontario’s newly elected Secretary-Treasurer, Yolanda McClean. Yolanda’s election is historic for CUPE Ontario as the first black woman to serve in the role. What does her election mean for the union and for Canadian labour?
