NOVA SCOTIA IN MOURNING. PLUS: IN SERVICE TO OUR SENIORS

NOVA SCOTIA IN MOURNING. PLUS: IN SERVICE TO OUR SENIORS

A SPECIAL TWO-PART EPISODE OF CONTEXT THIS WEEK DISCUSSES TWO INCREDIBLY SERIOUS AND DIFFICULT ISSUES.

We begin the program with the deadliest mass shooting in the history of our country. Lorna talks with the Archbishop of Nova Scotia Anthony Mancini, whose church had to close because of COVID-19; and is now dealing with the fact that funerals for loved ones won’t be held.

And – our largest urban centres have shown us we are facing a crisis of long term care for seniors succumbing to COVID-19. This once unimaginable global pandemic is showing us how dire conditions are in some long-term care homes in cities across Canada.

We stand on the shoulders of giants and in service to our seniors – the people who helped build our country and enrich our lives. They, and their loved ones are feeling the great pain of distance these days.
