Cold weather has officially hit Canada, so we hit the streets to find out what winter sports you like to do. 

Peter Oldring sits down with Canada's most famous cartoonist Howard Murphy to talk about the two lovable characters that made him a household name across this country, Terry and Torry. We've posted a couple of Murphy's famous drawings on our blog.  

The city of Victoria is implementing a new system of traffic lanes to help organize their tourist packed sidewalks and we talk to the town planner in charge to find out how they work.   

We profile the "Harlem Globetrotters of Curling," Saskatoon's Iced Knights.

Plus, we play your calls in reaction to the story we ran last week about Cromwell, BC clear cutting all of the trees within their municipality and selling the lumber to pay for repairs to their hockey rink.
