From Ontario to Nova Scotia, tens of thousands of people are still without power in Canada after a weekend ice storm that took down trees and power lines.

Temperatures have dipped into the single digits and at least five people are dead, two of them from carbon monoxide poisoning after resorting to burning charcoal or propane to stay warm.

The CBC's John Northcott joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss the latest on the storm's aftermath.
