Surgeries for children are being cancelled at paediatric hospitals as staff race to care for a huge surge in kids arriving in the ER, or needing ICU space.

And if you do need to take a child to the ER, what do you need to know?
GUEST: Dr. Katherine Smart, practicing paediatrician, past president of the Canadian Medical Association
