Season 3 Episode 4

This week on This Is That: We talk to the Salt Spring Island school board about how they are, due to budget cuts, creatively cutting curriculum and still keeping students and parents happy.
Earlier this week it was made public that an ownership group in Calgary is lobbying Major League Baseball for a professional baseball team called the Calgary Blue Jays. Mr. Doug Malloy, the founder of the group, tells us why they want another team called the Blue Jays in Canada.

After 42 years Canada's favourite furry friend retailer, The Pet Bin, announced that they'll be closing all of their stores across Canada. CEO Garry Ballianto tells us what the future holds for the Pet Bin.

Winter is just around the corner which means Canadian green-thumbs will be closing down their gardens for the season, so we asked our resident horticulturist Chris Morrison to come on the show to answer your gardening questions. If your question didn't get answered you can still call them in to 1-877-563-2442 and we'll try and get Chris back on the show to answer them.

Plus, we play your calls in reaction to the government of Saskatchewan potentially renaming the province to "something shorter."

A big thank you goes out to both the Olio Festival and the YYC Comedy Festival for bringing us out to do live shows over the past two weeks. We'd also like to thank Tourism Calgary for "white hatting" Peter and Pat and to the folks at Q with Jian Ghomeshi for having us on the show this week.
