Episode Description

Our environmental expert Lawrence Gunther says Canada is clear-cutting its boreal forest, also known as The Amazon of the North. We find out why that matters. We speak with Cassandra Chiu about her new memoir, titled “A Place for Us.” She is one of the first guide dog users in Singapore. Donna Jodhan from Barrier-Free Canada talks about mobilizing support for accessibility issues in previous election campaigns. Several workers have been caught trying to poison their colleagues’ lunches. We discuss the humorous and not-so-humorous consequences of eating at your desk. It took the authorities several hours to take footage of the New Zealand mosque massacre down from social media sites. Marc Aflalo from Your Tech Report tells us about attempts to filter out such videos in the future. Our Halifax colleague Ryan Delehanty joins us for our weekly news quiz. This is the April 9, 2019 episode.
