Shift: Greying of the Population - Aging Part 1 (Episode 9)

Shift: Stories Behind the Stats from CBC Radio

We devote the final two episodes of Shift to the greying of our nation. In this episode, we look at the numbers and introduce you to someone from one of the fastest-growing age demographics in the country -- those 100 and older. We also take a trip to Garnish, Newfoundland, a town ahead of the demographic curve when it comes to age. And we talk to an author who says anxiety about an aging population is a recurring theme in history. Plus hear about how the public sector is being hit by demographic changes.
