Japan Quake / Deir, Ishiwata
We have two people in studio with us who have close connections to Japan. Miki Ishiwata moved from Japan to Newfoundland in 1974. Her sister still lives in Japan - in Chiba (CHEE-bah) prefecture - not far from Tokyo. And Glenn Deir is a CBC reporter who has worked in Japan for NHK, the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation from 2005 until 2007.
