We may each be in isolation right now but at Public we are still united in one thing: our admiration for the people who are keeping our world going. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who is putting their health at risk so the rest of us can retain a sliver of normality; from our health workers to the gig workers delivering our meals to the truck drivers stocking our grocery stores to countless others.

It is also a timely reminder that not everyone in the world has access to the quality care Canadians enjoy. Out of this crisis, we should try to make that the one thing we learn and change.
