Correction: A previous version of this broadcast incorrectly used images of the Roberta Place Retirement Lodge in stories about a COVID-19 outbreak at Roberta Place Long-Term Care. The retirement lodge is a separate building that does not have an outbreak at this time.
Also, in the previous version of the Go Public story a graphic incorrectly identified two cannabis edible products as legal in Canada. They are not. The graphic has been updated.
