Listen 5:15

What began as an ordinary day for a Canadian named Victoria Regina turned into a quest to save the very soul of the country. Victoria was at a Maple Leafs game when she realized something odd was happening. The Leafs were winning, hockey players were debating instead of fighting, and no-one knew what poutine was.  All the Canadian things had changed. That's when a mysterious man appeared on a Zamboni and announced he'd traveled through time.
