President Trump is threatening to call in the military to quell violent protests across dozens of U.S. cities after several days of protests which have at times turned violent and destructive. Jackson Proskow has more from Washington D.C. where the president has issued a strict 7 p.m. curfew, one that protesters in some cases have ignored. Tensions continue to rise in other cities around the United States as well - Eric Sorensen has that story.

On the COVID-19 front, provinces are taking more steps to ease lockdown restrictions. Abigail Bimman walks us through what is changing and where.

New data suggests people of colour and minorities have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Canada, however, lacks data on COVID-19’s impacts on racial groups. As Heather Yourex-West explains, that data also comes with risks.

With the protests of George Floyd gripping the U.S., Mike Armstrong takes a look at personal the message that shouldn’t be lost in the mayhem.

I truly wish that the States had the same cooperation and reliance upon the scientists and experts that Canada has. And with the massive amount of people attending protests, our numbers will surely only go up 😞

Thank you for always including some happy news with each broadcast.. much needed with all of the news covering nothing but violence. Nonviolent protests can and do happen and should be covered more often.
