Sunday Scrum: Canada’s continuing fight against COVID-19

CBC News Network’s Sunday Scrum panel is your destination for frank discussion and analysis of the week’s big Canadian political stories.

This week, we ask our panellists about the threat of a resurgence of COVID-19 as the country eases restrictions intended to limit the spread of the virus, and the fate of Canada’s cities as they face mounting costs brought on by the crisis. 

Plus, the panellists talk about the status of Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer’s U.S. citizenship and the outgoing leader’s calls for more in-person sittings in Parliament. 

The panellists also tackle the spike in Ontario’s COVID-19 case counts and pleas from Premier Doug Ford for residents of his province to undergo testing.
