Thems Days - Tales of the Grand River

Grand River holds a special place in the hearts of Labradorians. Many a storyteller in the Big Land can spin a good yarn about the river, whether it's about the life of trappers or even a German uboat that may have sunk to the bottom. This March, Them Days Magazine is dedicating a special issue to the river. And it's looking for stories of all kinds to celebrate it. Labrador Morning's John Gaudi sat down with Aimee Chalk and Alicia Elson at the magazine to find out more about the issue. You'll hear Aimee Chaulk first.
