The Hamilton Today Podcast....

NASA is rehearsing the upcoming launch of its “mega moon rocket” today. What does that take, what are the plans for the eventual launch, and what does it all lay the groundwork for? We take a look at the historical context of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and how that informs the narrative around the war. Canada is expected to announce an end to pre-arrival COVID-19 testing for vaccinated travellers, two federal government sources told Global News. Moderna Inc. said on Thursday Canada authorized its COVID-19 vaccine for use in children between 6 and 11 years of age after recently being cleared for use in the EU and Australia. What does it take for Vladimir Putin and the perpetrators of the Russian invasion of Ukraine to be declared war criminals, and what happens if they are deemed to be? What is the possibility of China sending military aid to Russia, covertly or otherwise? Are there reasonable ways to deter them from doing so? How easy is it for Russian oligarchs to hide their money in Canada, really? A meeting of NATO will take place next week, as the war in Ukraine continues. How significant is this meeting? What can member nations reasonably do, how much more aid can they give, and what happens if they push further?
