SOMETHING YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT CANADA: Pascale Hutton On The Canadian Who Got Cut From 'Argo'

'Argo' just won an Academy Award for Best Picture (and two more for Best Film Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay).

But do you know the story of the Canadian official, John Sheardown, who didn't end up being portrayed in the movie? He was a pretty incredible guy: in the Second World War, he crash-landed his plane and broke both his legs. What did he do? Crawled to the pub and had a scotch before the ambulance arrived. Beat that.

Pascale Hutton of CBC's 'Arctic Air' tells us the story.
