Your morning briefing from
January 23, 2023


COVID-19 vaccine policies at Ontario hospitals are keeping some health-care workers from helping with staff shortages, a significant snowstorm is heading for southern Ontario, and a Regina couple's destination wedding is disrupted twice by cancelled Sunwing flights.

Here's what you need to know to start your day.

'Ready, willing and able'

Despite Ontario no longer requiring health-care workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19, all of the province's 140 public hospitals continue to enforce a mandatory vaccination policy, leaving some experienced front-line workers in the dust as facilities face a staffing crisis.

Ont. snowstorm

Southern Ontario is on track to get hit with a significant winter storm this week, with "rapidly accumulating snow" expected to make travel difficult.

'Why did you even let us rebook?'

A Regina couple's dream destination wedding in Mexico was cancelled in early January when Sunwing halted their flights and rescheduled, only to cancel the new flights again this week.

Cabinet retreat

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his ministers are gathering at a Hamilton hotel today to begin a three-day strategy session during what the PM's says are "tough times."

What goes up...

According to a Bank of Canada survey, more than a quarter of Canadians believe that current decades-high prices will drop five years from now.
