Three Hamilton apartment buildings have seen major outbreaks of Covid-19 in recent weeks, all of the more transmissible UK-origin variant. The worst instance was in Rebecca Towers, where well over 100 cases have been identified. These outbreaks immediately seemed to highlight Covid-19’s gift for seeking out the more vulnerable members of our communities. But did it also highlight the failure of multiple levels of government to protect those who – after long term care residents and front-line health workers were vaccinated – were in most urgent need of vaccination, and least able to obtain it?


To discuss this topic in detail we invited on Justin Chandler. Justin is TVO.org’s Hamilton-Niagara Bureau reporter, covering current affairs in the region. He also co-hosts the comic book radio show, Radio Free Krypton
