TOPIC – Black Day for EI in July

INFO – Today, Statistics Canada reported a large monthly drop of 10,900 for July in the number of Canadians receiving regular Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. Its press release noted, “This decline brings the number of beneficiaries to a level similar to that observed before the start of the labour-market downturn in 2008.”

But the number of unemployed workers remains stuck at 1.4 million, far above the 1.1 million before the financial crisis. The federal government has cut EI to pre-recession levels even though the job market remains in recession.

GUEST – Dr. Tony Mazzulli, M.D., FRCPC, Microbiologist, Infectious Disease Consultant, Mount Sinai Hospital

TOPIC – The passing of Dr. Donald Low
