Season 3 Episode 2

This week on This Is That: We talk to an MP in Ottawa that is trying to get the buildings on Parliament Hill sponsored by corporations to offset operating costs and lower taxes.
Though the Olympic and Para-Olympic flames are now extinguished, stories are still coming out about the London Games. Peter Oldring bring us a unique story about a group of confused athletes from the micro-state of Andorra and how they almost missed their shot at gold.

Pat Kelly sits down for a feature length chat with one of the world's most famous diaphragmists, Garry Haligan.  

We close this week's show with a documentary about one man's dream to be the first person ever to climb up Niagara Falls.

Plus, we play your calls in reaction to a story we ran last week about a new proposed holiday called Innovation Hour that would have Canadians turn on everything in their house for one hour to celebrate innovation.

There has also been a lot of discussion over a story we ran last week about the town of Napanee wanting to raise a statue of Sir John A MacDonald or Avril Lavigne. A Facebook group was even created to stop the statue of Ms. Lavigne from being erected. Let us know which statue the Town of Napanee should create by voting in our poll.
