Caring for a sick loved one can be both physically and emotionally punishing. And for some caregivers, experience is not on their side.
According to research from the University of British Columbia ... as many as 10 per cent of young people in this country - people under the age of 25 - are primary caregivers for a family member; a parent, a sibling or a grandparent.
Not a lot is known about these young people. But what's happening in their homes may have a significant impact on their education, their social lives, and even their own health.
Today, we bring you the story of one Ontario family's experience. Our documentary, Care For The Young was produced by Ellen Saenger. It originally aired in April.
As a result of their experience, Jenna Cooper and Kim Latour have helped other families in similar situations. They are involved locally and nationally through the Young Careers Canada Steering Committee as well as the Young Careers Initiative and its Powerhouse Project serving the Niagara Region and Haldimand-Norfolk in Ontario.Whither the Baguette
On Twitter, JCF raved:
A light rye! Toasted with a bit of cream cheese: the perfect snack!
Ann Gagne said:
Discovered cracked black peppercorn bread at farmers' market, so delicious.
Jason Anthony Tetro lamented:
Compared to the cronut, what hope could there be for the baguette? A true shame.
And that was echoed in this tweet from Mary Stanik who says:
Mon Dieu! Has the crusty, toted on-a-bicycle baguette lost its appeal? Even in France?
Have something to say? We want to hear it.
Last Word - Fishing in Yemen
We've been talking today about turmoil in Yemen, but one of the country's most pressing problems may be thirst. The water tables are dropping and Sanaa risks becoming the world's first capital to run dry. That's one of the reasons the 2011 film, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen seemed so unlikely. We aired a clip from the film to end our show today.
