The Bill Kelly Show Podcast with Guest Host Scott Radley:

In the final days of the campaign, the area codes in which the leaders are appearing provide a look ahead to the battlegrounds of election night.

Justin Trudeau began Sunday morning in 450, the suburban ring around the Island of Montreal, where the Liberals hope to gain several seats from the Bloc Québécois. Then he flew to Toronto where the Libs must hold off the Conservatives in the 905 belt around 416 in the Greater Toronto Area. He ended his day where it began Monday, in Vancouver, where the Liberals are evidently in trouble in 604, running third behind the Conservatives and the NDP.

GUEST: L. Ian MacDonald, Editor of Policy Magazine and former national affairs columnist for the Montreal Gazette


As Canadians prepare to vote in this year’s federal election, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) wants to remind you that, upon taking office, Canada’s next government will need to respond immediately to a wide range of global emergencies, including disease epidemics, natural disasters, armed conflicts, and the humanitarian impacts of climate change. As one of Canada’s – and the world’s – leading independent emergency humanitarian medical organizations, MSF will continue to insist that Canada lives up to its international humanitarian obligations and will urge the next government to uphold Canada’s long history of principled leadership in response to global crises.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that Canada cannot be complacent when it comes to global public health and ensuring that patients and health systems around the world have access to the medicines and the vaccines that they need.

GUEST: Dr. Jason Nickerson, Humanitarian Affairs Advisor for Doctors Without Borders
