On today’s show:
Brantford’s mayor calls on the provincial and federal governments to settle a 1995 claim, filed by Six Nations of Grand River. Close to a hundred job seekers from Ukraine and elsewhere attended the Pier 21 Job Fair in Halifax Nova Scotia for immigrants and refugees. Nova Scotia where a burn ban is in effect due to extremely dry weather conditions. A Sackville City councillor was suspended for two months without pay: a GoFundMe campaign comes to his rescue. And it was a historic day for the CFL and the Edmonton Elks, as the first ever, Cree-language broadcast of a football game in Canada, took place at the Commonwealth Stadium.
