TORONTO – Canada has now fully immunized 77.94 percent of the country’s eligible population. Here’s what else you need to know to start your day.

1. Elections Canada: Some voters who show up at their polling station without a mask or who refuse to wear a mask will be refused the ballot box, warns Elections Canada.

2. Events for healthcare: Party leader Justin Trudeau said a re-elected Liberal government would make it a criminal offense to threaten or intimidate healthcare workers or block access to buildings where they provide services.

3. Health transfers: During last week’s English debate, O’Toole said he supported universal health care, but also pledged to increase funding to “unconditional” provinces. CTVNews.ca has asked experts to determine whether these two positions conflict with each other.

4. Secret letter: In a secret letter sent from prison as a gift to a best-selling author, a Korean-Canadian serving time in South Korea said he was being tortured by prison staff.

5. Exposure to smoke: An international team of researchers has calculated that short-term exposure to smoke from wildfires is attributable to approximately 440 deaths in Canada and more than 33,000 deaths worldwide each year.

One more thing…
