  • CFRA Live – After a disturbing weekend shooting spree in Buffalo, are you concerned where Canada’s state of political affairs is headed?

    Ten people have lost their lives and three others have been injured following a Saturday shooting at a Buffalo supermarket.

Before the attack, the gunman had previously cited the Great Replacement Theory, a white nationalist trope. In the wake of last week’s hateful messages directed towards NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, are you concerned where Canada’s state of political affairs is headed?

  • CFRA Live – Fueled by a pandemic spike, cybercrimes against children on the rise in Canada

    A recent stats dump from StatsCan points to an alarming trend that is currently unfolding across the country. Thursday’s findings suggest that, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, police-reported cybercrimes against children have risen. Not only that, they have more than doubled over a seven-year period. In 2020, the rates of crimes related to child pornography were roughly 33 percent higher than they were in 2019, while the rate of child luring offences climbed by 22 percent within that 12-month span. Wayne MacKay is a Law Professor at Dalhousie University and he breaks down these staggering numbers on today’s edition of CFRA Live.
