What could we do with $33B? That's the cost of poverty in Ontario.

Dave and Erin share their insight on why newsrooms seem to be behind when it comes to talking about news stories of the day.

We dip into the latest report from Feed Ontario and the numbers aren't good. More than half a million Ontarians used a food bank between April 2021 and March 2022. Food bank visits topped 4.3 million during that period of time in Ontario - a 42% increase over the last three years.
