Part Two of The Current
We started this segment with then-CBC reporter Craig Oliver caught in the fevered grip of a cattle auction in Regina Saskatchewan. That was April 17, 1961. In the half century since then, he has been involved in covering every federal election in this country, and reported on ten prime ministers.
Craig Oliver has risen to become one of Canada's most recognized broadcasters. He is the chief parliamentary correspondent for CTV news and his new book is Oliver's Twist: The Life and Times of an Unapologetic Newshound. Craig Oliver was in our Toronto studio.
