February 26, 2013

This week in In The Field, in honour of this year's Canada Reads winner, Lisa Moore's "February," we dig into the archives and replay Marie Wadden's documentary on the sinking of the Ocean Ranger, called "Still Sinking; Remembering the Ocean Ranger Disaster." The documentary originally aired on The Current on the 30th anniversary of the sinking of the Ocean Ranger and features excerpts of February read by author Lisa Moore. Mary Wiens introduces us to Katie from Burlington and Dhruva from Hyderabad, who met in Toronto and got married in India on February 14th. Zac Markan meets some urban mushers from Halifax, who use dog sledding to keep their pooches en sante. And we hear Karin Wells' visit to a barbershop in Vancouver that has raised about $200,000 for charities across the city over the past several years. 5.In Thunder Bay, the airport is selling off its furniture. JOsh Lynn checked it out.
