The West Block: Jan. 17, 2021 | Advocating against lockdowns, a final interview with Gen. Vance

Global News published this video item, entitled “The West Block: Jan. 17, 2021 | Advocating against lockdowns, a final interview with Gen. Vance” – below is their description.

An Ottawa ICU doctor believes paid sick leaves are a stronger tool than lockdowns. In an interview with ‘The West Block’ guest host Abigail Bimman, Dr. Kwadwo Kyeremanteng says many of the COVID-19 patients in his ICU are from marginalized populations and essential workers — who are less likely to get tested if they won’t get paid to be off work.

Plus, Canada’s ambassador to the U.S. says she will be at president-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration Wednesday, after taking a COVID-19 test as per the rules for attendees. In an interview with ‘The West Block’ guest host Abigail Bimman, Hillman says her team is starting to ‘lay the groundwork for those first calls’ with the Biden administration.

And finally: In one of his final interviews as Chief of the Defence Staff, General Jonathan Vance tells Mercedes Stephenson on ‘The West Block’ the mission to root out sexual misconduct in the Canadian Armed Forces is a forever mission that will evolve over time.
