We've told ourselves this whole time that our children are resilient. Every missed event, virtual school session or socially distant celebration, we've clung to that thought.

GUEST: Dr. Ayisha Kurji, consultant pediatrician in Saskatoon, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Saskatchewan
