Ontario Premier Doug Ford is set to present a vision today for what he hopes to accomplish with a new term of government, as well as reintroduce this year’s budget.

A throne speech will outline the Progressive Conservative government’s agenda, followed by the reintroduction of the budget, which is expected to be largely unchanged from when it was introduced but not passed in the spring before the election.

GUEST: Mike Schreiner, Leader of the Ontario Green Party and MPP for Guelph

Masks will not be mandatory in Ontario schools this September, the province's Education Ministry says.

The ministry said most health and safety requirements for the upcoming school year will remain unchanged from the end of the 2021-22 school year, which includes the voluntary use of masks.

New labour force data from Statistics Canada confirm that Canada’s economy is already slowing down sharply as a result of aggressive interest rate increases begun by the Bank of Canada in March. 

With the U.S. economy (Canada’s largest trading partner) already in technical recession (with two consecutive quarters of real GDP contraction), and monthly GDP data showing no growth since May, this new report adds to worries that Canada’s economy is heading into recession as well.

GUEST:  Jim Stanford, Economist and Director of the Centre for Future Work
