LIVE CHAT: Are your vet bills too high?

Categories: Business, Canada, Community

Marshall the bulldog plays a key role in the first episode of the next season of Marketplace. Watch Friday at 8 p.m. ET to see him in action!

Canada's consumer watchdog is back for another season of weeding out wrongdoing and busting bad business.

Marketplace hosts and investigator extraordinaires Erica Johnson and Tom Harrington are sniffing out the cost of vet bills across the country - with the help of Marshall the bulldog - to start the next season. It takes 'consumer watchdog' to a whole new level.

What consumer issues matter most to you and your family? What is it like digging into an investigation?

Johnson and Hemopet founder Jean Dodds joined host Lauren O'Neil to discuss the upcoming season of CBC's Marketplace and the episode that kicks it all off.
