Family Secrets - Episode Eight

Listen

Jim St. Clair was a little boy when he overheard something he shouldn't have. He promised his grandmother that he'd keep this family secret. And he did. We'll tell you why he broke that promise 60 years later. It was a cold, rainy day in Vancouver. Wing-Siu Wong, his wife and their 4-year-old had nothing to do. So, what better way to curb their boredom, than to do something illegal?! Plus, Ruth Lawrence confesses about why she lived most of her life with guilt about her sister's death.
