This episode of News and Views is a special edition of our show. Naama Weingarten, Talha Hashmani and Masih K examine the incredible events of recent days, a watershed historical moment in which mass protests have erupted, north and south of the boarder, in reaction to systematic police violence against people of color. They begin with the death of Regis Korchinsky-Paquet in Toronto.
