Ottawan donates his fortune to English town

When Ottawa banker Keith Owen died, he decided to leave his fortune to a seaside town in England. All 2.3 million British pounds of it. And it included the off-hand suggestion that the town 'plant a million bulbs.' So this fall, much of the town's population of fourteen thousand will be planting more than 10 tonnes of flower bulbs. Guest host Hallie Cotnam speaks the town councillor who will be leading the effort.
