Vancouver poet learns the power of words

Brad Cran has served as poet laureate for the city of Vancouver, but it was time spent in one of the city's least heralded neighborhoods that inspired him.

Cran was involved in a project documenting the stories of people who live in Vancouver's Lower East Side, and he says the work changed his life.

He's in the Yukon for the Whitehorse Poetry Festival. Click on the link below to hear him spea with Dave.
