Plenty of controversy following Lance Armstrong following his interview with Oprah. We talk to a Calgarian who rode with Armstrong and had one-one-one conversations with the man. A report today says Albertans spend the second most in the country on healthcare but the value we get for our money ranks seventh among other provinces. We talk to an author of The Provincial Healthcare Index. We take calls with guest Sherry Torkos a pharmacist and author of The Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine.
