Whisky Festival, Community Living BC, and Sarah Burke
Did you know that Victoria has the best organized Whiskey Festival in the world? It won the award last year and that might be the reason this year's festival is sold out. Jim Murray is a guest speaker at the festival and the author of "Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible." He joins us to talk about whisky.
Sarah Burke has died of cardiac arrest at the age of 29, after she was seriously injured during training earlier this month. CBC TV sports reporter Karin Larsen discusses Sarah Burke's legacy.
The province unveiled plans to overhaul Community Living BC, the agency that provides support to adults with developmental disabilites. We've heard about group home closures, long waiting lists and clients left without help at 19 when they leave the Ministry of Children and Family Development's care. Premier Christy Clark announced how the government will respond to these problems. We speak with Nicholas Simons, the NDP MLA for Powell River-Sunshine Coast and the opposition critic for community living.
