Botwood deaths

There should have been a family celebration for Isabel Sheppard of Botwood yesterday. It would have been her 66th birthday. But a tragic highway crash took her life on Saturday, along with her 69-year old husband, Jim. And in a town as small as Botwood, everyone is grieving. Including Deputy Mayor Scott Sceviour, who is on the line now.


Labrador weather

It's a nice, crisp day here in St. John's at minus 11 ... It's a wee bit colder in Labrador City at ... minus 29. And that's all people in the Big Land are talking about - how cold it is. Mike Power is a reporter in Labrador City. He joins us now.
