Season 3 Episode 6

This week on This Is That: We talk to an MP from Alberta that believes all of the provinces should report their federal spending to Alberta.

We investigate a story that was left on our listener tip line about a new hotel in New York City that caters strictly to infants.
Peter Oldring speaks with the head of a group that is trying to get the city of Toronto, Ontario designated as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

He's got all the hype of Bieber and the songwriting skills of Lady Gaga, the only difference is he's a 57 year-old, former real estate agent from Barrie, Ontario. We profile Tom Hendry, the Canadian the music press has dubbed the "middle aged Bieber."  

Plus, we play your calls in reaction to the interview we ran last week about the Ottawa economist that thinks that Canadians should stop referring to our one dollar coin as a loonie.

If you would like to hear three of Tom Hendry's original tunes, you can stream them over here.
