Daybreak Montreal from CBC Radio: December 4, 2012

Montrealers are in debt like never before. On average, not including mortgages, Canadian consumers owe more than twenty-six thousand dollars each. Mike speaks to Tahnya Kristina. She got herself out of major debt and blogs about it. We also hear from a debt councillor. The hurdles facing Iranian skilled workers and professionals who want to immigrate to Québec are getting higher. Canadian consular facilities in Teheran have been shut down and all claims now have to go through the embassy in Ankara, Turkey. We hear from immigration consultant Maria Cottone. Mike also speaks to eighteen year old Wimbledon champion Eugenie Bouchard. She brought home the girls' singles and doubles titles last year and now she's turning pro. Doug Gelevan also talks about the high price of getting a concussion in the NFL.
