  • Mike Armstrong has our top story tonight from Quebec where parents now have the option to send their children back to school as of today - but how many parents were willing to take that risk with COVID-19 still presenting a risk to public health? In Ontario, thousands of people went back to work Monday. Eric Sorensen takes a look at the strategy behind the reopening, and the related pitfalls. Companies are busy deploying a wide range of technologies and protective measures to keep their employees and customers safe as the reopening process begins. But as Jeff Semple reports,- at what cost? After more than 900 employees tested positive at a Cargill meat processing plant last week, a second plant near Montreal has seen 64 of their employees test positive for COVID-19. The American-owned company is now facing pressure as to why they can’t keep their employees safe. Heather Yourex-West has more. The federal government is offering a new package to help big businesses struggling to survive during the COVID-19 pandemic. While some are exempt, a whole range of businesses could be eligible, but with some possible strings attached. David Akin has more. And in international news: After a pair of White House staffers tested positive for the coronavirus, questions are now being asked: if one of the most secure buildings in North America can be penetrated, how does it bode for the rest of the country? And finally tonight, we take a look back at the life of Jerry Stiller, best known for his role as Frank Costanza on Seinfeld, who passed away Monday at the age of 92.

    At 4.02 one boy tapped another boys hand while they were spacing themselves out ! Kids will be kids. No way will they all practice proper social distancing. There will be a couple of clowns. And the kid couldn’t do it for one day. I wouldn’t send my son to school.

    I don't understand Quebec and Ontario; they're the most in Canada, yet Ontario and Quebec are, on the Contrary; the opposite....

    I like the lockdown. Makes me feel safer knowing most people are at home and only essential workers are working . I hope everyone continues to self isolate. I don't want to get sick a as i work with elders.

    As a preschool teacher I am horrified at the idea of reopening schools. I get the practicality of it because parents need childcare if they’re going to get back to work, but children can’t grasp social distancing and it’s absolutely insane to expect them to stay six feet apart. It is literally impossible.
