This week on This Is That: We talk to the Saskatchewan M.L.A. behind the leaked e-mail that revealed that the Saskatchewan Government is trying to rename the province.
Our microphones head to the streets to find out how much Canadians are paying for lunch
A representative from one of the world's largest cruise lines, Royal Norway, comes on the show to explain a new type of ship that is parking itself in Canada this spring.
Earlier this week the Governor General announced that the pick-up truck is officially Canada's National Vehicle. Peter Oldring speaks with the man who spearheaded this campaign.
And, we profile the McCreedy brothers of Northern British Columbia. They are a duo that still practices the art of hand-chopping wood. Between this pair they provide the province with 78% of its firewood.
Plus, we play your calls in reaction to a story we ran last week about an M.P. in Ottawa that wants to sell off the naming rights to the buildings on Parliament Hill
to offset operating costs and hopefully lower taxes.
