Nick Bantock retrospective, use of Tasers and new flu season
The very first Canadian retrospective of renowned author Nick Bantock and artist is on at the Penticton Art Gallery. Bantock is perhaps best known as the author of the Griffin and Sabine Trilogy. But he has also penned a couple of dozen other books, including 11 best sellers. He's also a celebrated visual artist, working in a variety of mediums.
The results of a police probe into the use of a Taser on an 11 year old boy in Prince George are in. The boy allegedly stabbed a care worker in his group home. Police recommended no charges against the officers involved. Adrienne Montani is provincial coordinator with First Call -- BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition. She's calling for a ban on the use of tasers on children.
Flu season is just around the corner. That means many will soon be lining up for the poke of a needle. But now, Canadians have access to an alternative influenza vaccine. It's less invasive, and for some, more effective. But it definitely comes with a price. CBC's Chris dela Torre explains.
