Bilingual Dog Bylaw, Canadian Passport Changes, Million Dollar Bill, and Swimming Scallops

This week: We talk to Passport Canada about the new allowances they are making for passport photos. We check in with our Cross-Canada Community Calendar. A group of Toronto financiers are actively lobbying the Canadian Mint to make a one-million dollar bill. We play your calls in reaction to a story we ran last week about an Alberta energy company that wants to fly oil out of the province using retro-fitted water-bomber airplanes. Nova Scotia Tourism board is allocating 80% of its promotional budget for an attraction called “Swimming with the Scallops.” And, a Montreal councilor is trying to pass a bylaw that would require all dogs to understand commands in both official languages.
