The Hamilton Today Podcast with Scott Thompson:

Scott kicks today off with a recap of Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland’s address in Brampton, and how she, in Scott’s view, just completely misses the point of where people are hurting. Macroeconomist Dr. Eric Kam also joins in on the fun later in the show with his usual sharp economic perspective, with a stark reminder of where Canadians are financially. Scott also touches upon the travel industry’s issues amidst lost luggage, the several hour delays and cancelled flights in Canada’s airports. Should the federal government just scrap the ArriveCan app at this point? Scott discusses with Barry Choi, travel expert. CBS news correspondent Allison Keys also joins Scott to update us on the Highland Park shooting on July 4th as a suspect has been detained. The 30 NATO allies signed off on the accession protocols for Sweden and Finland on Tuesday, sending the membership bids of the two nations to the alliance capitals for legislative approvals -- and possible political trouble in Turkey. Scott speaks with Dr. Aurel Braun for the global perspective. It is all coming up on the Hamilton Today Podcast.
