11:00 AM TOPIC: Trump Travel ban reinstated GUEST: Simon Palamar – CIGI, Global Policy Expert The Supreme Court is allowing President Donald Trump to forge ahead with a limited version of his ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to the U.S. Trump hailed the decision as a “victory for national security,” but it’s likely to set off a new round of court disputes over anti-terror efforts and religious discrimination. The justices will hear full arguments in October in the case that has stirred heated emotions across the nation and pointed rebukes from lower courts saying the administration is targeting Muslims. Until then, the court said Monday, Trump’s ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen can be enforced if those visitors lack a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.” http://www.570news.com/2017/06/26/newsalert-supreme-court-will-review-trump-travel-ban-allows-it-to-take-effect-in-most-instances/

10:30 AM TOPIC: Ex-nurse Elizabeth Wettlaufer sentenced to life in prison, no parole for 25 years GUEST: Rochella Vassell, Central West consultant and social media coordinator, Elder Abuse Ontario Former nurse Elizabeth Wettlaufer has been sentenced to life in prison, with no chance of parole for 25 years. Family and friends of Wettlaufer’s victims were in court today describing the pain, guilt and anger they felt after learning their loved ones had been murdered by the nurse who was meant to care for the vulnerable seniors. The 50-year-old pleaded guilty last month to eight counts of first-degree murder, four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault. Wettlaufer admitted to using insulin in all 14 cases that stretched from 2007 to 2016, and has said she believed she was an instrument of God. Yesterday, Wettlaufer told her sentencing hearing she was truly sorry for murdering and injuring vulnerable patients in her care. She said she hoped the families of her victims can find peace and healing. http://www.570news.com/2017/06/26/ex-nurse-elizabeth-wettlaufer-sentenced-life-prison-no-parole-25-years/

1:00 PM Recap Morning Topic TOPIC: Flood watches and warnings remain in effect for Grand River Watershed GUEST: Cam Linwood, GRCA Spokesperson From Kitchener to Cambridge, flooding and strong flows around Waterloo Region brought back memories of the historic 1974 disaster. Flood watches and warnings remain in effect in parts of our region along the Grand River Watershed, as water levels remain high. Flows on the Grand River through Cambridge peaked around noon Saturday in the 900 m3/s range. Typical summer flow at this location is 15 m3/s. On Sunday morning, flows remained above 400 m3/s and still present a significant safety risk to the public. The Grand River Conservation Authority’s 6th Flood Message says warnings continue for Cambridge, Brantford, County of Brant, Haldimand County  — and a flood watch remains in effect in Kitchener, Woolwich, St. Jacobs, Elmira, Elora and Ayr. A couple of major roads were closed in Cambridge as water made them impossible to travel on, including part of Highway 24 and Blair Road. Blair Road and HWY 24 have since reopened. http://www.570news.com/2017/06/25/flood-watches-warnings-remain-effect-grand-river-watershed/

11:00 AM TOPIC: Rent capped at 1.8 per cent increase GUEST: Shannon Orr, Legal Counsel, Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario Landlords in Ontario will be able to increase rents up to 1.8 per cent next year, as rent controls are expanded under the Liberal government’s housing plan. The annual rent increase guideline is the maximum amount a landlord can boost a tenant’s rent without needing the approval of the Landlord and Tenant Board. Rent controls had previously only applied to private rental units built before November 1991, but the government removed that exception and it says that means 250,000 more tenants will get protection from unfair hikes. The new rule is retroactive to April 20, when the government announced its housing plan, so any rent increase notices given on or after that date are subject to the cap. The 2017 rent increase guideline is 1.5 per cent. http://www.680news.com/2017/06/23/rents-ontario-can-hiked-1-8-per-cent-next-year-without-approvals/
11:30 AM TOPIC: Patriotic Drinking Habits -  Canada 150 piece GUEST: Bruce Philp, MacLean's Columnist It’s been just eight years since Barack Obama’s first term began. Though it seems like a lifetime ago, you might recall a signature moment of his early presidency in which alcohol sat centre stage. Cambridge Massachusetts police sergeant James Crowley had arrested Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates in his own home, mistaking him for a burglar in an apparent case of racial profiling. Given the importance of race in Obama’s narrative of hope and unity, the president took a personal and vocal interest in the incident. And so, in an effort to calm the waters, he invited both men to join him for a conciliatory chat in the White House Rose Garden over a beer, just “three folks having a drink at the end of the day.” http://www.macleans.ca/economy/why-canadians-drink-canadian-our-patriotic-drinking-habits/
