Daybreak Montreal from CBC Radio: February 21, 2013

Parents who lost thousands of dollars when a hockey boarding school near Montreal closed say they now have a new reason to be furious. Daybreak's Shawn Apel brings us the story of an Australian family who borrowed money to send their son there. We've heard from Anglo Montrealers who say they feel excluded in Quebec largely because of language. A bilingual Montrealer is trying to bridge that divide. She teaches French to Anglophones in Mile-End. Doug Gelevan goes bobsledding and tells us about a rising star on the swim team at McGill. Jeanette Kelly takes a French cooking lesson.
