Top headlines:

  1. Booster doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine for children between five and 11 years old were approved by Health Canada today
  2. When air travel, grounded by the pandemic, began to take off again, Toronto’s main airport had too few staff to handle it – and critics say a broken chain of command left no one accountable for fixing the airport chaos that ensued
