For newsrooms across the country, covering the war with Israel and Palestine has been tremendously difficult. Tensions are high, emotions are very fragile, and resources are at record lows. Today, we’re going to try to give you some idea of just what it has been like for journalists to work under these conditions.

Canadaland Editor-in-Chief, Karyn Pugliese, sits down with Dave Seglins, a CBC journalist who spent 25 years as a frontline reporter and investigative journalist. After experiencing work-related PTSD, he’s purposed himself as a champion of well-being in the newsroom. She also speaks with Brent Jolly, the president of the Canadian Association of Journalists, about what he’s hearing from reporters across the country.

When an Opioid Crisis hits a First Nation it’s different than in a city. In the city the addicted are mostly strangers. But in Pikwakanagan, if you see somebody behaving strangely on the reserve, you know them. You know your neighbor's business. You are your brother's keeper. So addiction is not just about the pain of losing somebody you love. It's about desperately hoping to save someone you love or protect someone you love.
