All this week, we've been digging through the archives to bring you some things you might not know about Canada, like the history of poutine and 007's Canadian connection. For the last day of Citizenship Week, we present: a sexy spy scandal from the '60s and the story of the terrifying Wendigo.

Mark McKinney, of Kids In The Hall fame, recalls a time when sexual frisson and international intrigue descended on Ottawa — with surprising consequences for criminal sentencing.

Tom Jackson on the Wendigo

Canadian screen legend Tom Jackson explains the uniquely Canadian story of the Wendigo, Canada's indigenous monster that could tear you apart (don't watch this one alone at night).
