Sunday Scrum: Continuing calls to end anti-black racism

4


CBC News Network’s Sunday Scrum panel is your destination for frank discussion and analysis of the week’s big political stories.

This week, we talk to our panellists about ongoing demonstrations across the United States, Canada and the world decrying anti-black racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month.

Plus, it’s been one year since the final report of a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada was released. The panellists address concerns from some families and advocates that little has been done to implement its recommendations. 

Also on the program, a discussion of updated public health figures that show Canada could see between 7,700 and 9,400 deaths from COVID-19 by June 15.
