DAY 47 - The COVID-19 Daily Podcast with Dave Trafford


This is DAY 47   of the COVID-19 pandemic.   Here’s what you need to know on   Sunday, April 26, 2020   <<<<>>>  Getting back to business in the face of this pandemic…certainly won’t be business as usual. We’re all learning to work together while working in isolation. But how will that isolation culture affect our willingness to gather in large crowds in the coming months? We’ll talk to CTV’s  Richard Crouse, host of Pop Life and a new YouTube show – called In Isolation…That’s coming up in the podcast.   Food security has been the focus of discussion this weekend in Canada. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced non-essential businesses to close, forcing historic layoffs and job losses across the country. More than a million jobs were lost in March and that has meant added stress on food banks in every region of Canada. That is the focus for the cast of Canadian celebrities who volunteered their time and talents for STAND TOGETHER – a virtual, multi-platform presentation of performances produced by all of Canada’s major broadcasters, including Bell Media. The intent is to raise $150 million for community food banks. Christ Hatch is the President and CEO at FOOD BANKS CANADA and I talked to him when he and his team launched the fundraising campaign.   <<<>>  IF YOU HAVE A STORY ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE YOU WANT TO SHARE…send me an email.
