The Pandemic's Last Gasp

The Pandemic's Last Gasp

The SKoop is back! Kevin, Eric and Dale sit down to discuss how things are going since the 2023-24 budget was released, including: does anyone care about it still? (The answer may surprise listeners!) Then, they discuss ambulance wait times and a potentially crafty decision to announce the end of mandatory masking in health facilities. Finally, the trio wraps up with What Actually Mattered This Week. Thanks for listening!
