Joe Warmington gives his candid take on the problem of gun crime in Toronto, and what needs to be done. And 19-year-old Lilly Coleman, whose article 'Political Correctness and Language' impressed Roy a great deal, joins the show to talk about her piece the issues it addresses.


Over six million Canadians live with chronic pain. For many, the pain is so severe that their lives may sink into depression and suicidal thoughts can become a regular occurrence. One of the struggles that those with chronic pain face is finding suitable doctors and treatment. The BC Medical Quality Initiative is now reviewing their guidelines on pain management. Their proposed rules would require a high level of certification for non-hospital practitioners. Our guest raises the point that this will greatly reduce the number of doctors working to administer treatment in local clinics.

The surge in gun crimes continues in Toronto, with some of the latest victim being two children, ages 5 and 9. They were innocent bystanders who were playing in a park when the shots were fired at an unrelated man. Mayor John Tory has spoken on the shooting and gun crime in the city but is he saying enough? And how must the issues be addressed?

Guest: Joe Warmington, Toronto Sun columnist


After being impressed by an article on political correctness, Roy was surprised to find that he did not recognize the name of the author, Lilly Coleman. He contacted her, to invite her on the show, and discovered that this was her first published piece. She she joined Roy on air to discuss the atmosphere of political correctness in schools and our culture.
