This is That

 

This is That

This Is That is a current affairs program that doesn't just talk about the issues, it fabricates them. Nothing's off limits--politics, business, culture, justice, science, religion--if it's relevant to Canadians, we'll find out the "This" and the "That" of the story. Each week, hosts Pat Kelly and Peter Oldring will introduce you to the voices that give this country character and through these stories provide a new perspective as to what it means to live in Canada.
