Pierre Berton's plea for real food

Born in the Yukon in 1920, Berton was a journalist, broadcaster and panellist on the long-running CBC-TV program Front Page Challenge. His books on the remarkable people, places and events of the past helped create a national mythology and earned him a spot on the bookshelves and in the hearts of Canadians.
