Political Capital 20 - BC ambulance reforms, new safe drug supply, and more

Ambulances, drugs, cruise ships - just another week in the choppy seas of BC politics.

BC tries to fix its beleaguered ambulance service but are the resources enough to tackle a political crisis? Health officials offer new prescription drug supply in a bid to reduce overdoses. Ottawa opens up our waters to cruise ships, but BC still faces the risk of losing the entire cruise sector due to US legislation. Rob Shaw is joined by panelists Jillian Oliver, Maclean Kay, and special guest Danielle Dalzell.
