Good stuff from the Gallery

Keith recommends Paul Wells’ take on the end of Andrew Scheer’s tenure as leader of the federal Conservatives, the tensions within the party and where the movement goes from here.

Dave recommends a New York times interactive piece about how the opioid crisis affected people who came of age at the turn of the millennium.

Janet wants you to listen to an emotional episode of the NPR podcast Hidden Brain, which explores choices about end-of-life care through the eyes of one family.
